If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 21

No more than 20 games remain for any team, so we’re in the final quartile of the season now. And this late, the top story continues to be the logjam out West between #4 and #11, if not further down. Even one more victory by the Predators (#9) would vault them up to #5. But […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 20

20 weeks done, almost 20 games left, and Philadelphia is still running away with the East. Vancouver is closer in the West to Detroit, but still has a comfortable lead, but is in danger of falling behind Philadelphia. The Dallas Stars, not too long ago atop the Pacific Division, are now in last place in […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 19

The top two seeds in each conference (and Pittsburgh) are pretty safely nestled into their positions, but everything else is up for grabs, with one win being able to do pretty much anything. To that point, four Pacific teams are currently in the brackets, and the last is just a win away. We should all […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 18

With just two months left in the season, very little is known, or even in a good position, regarding which teams will end up where. The defending champs are in the #11 spot, and the once solid East bracket has now been tapped by a new team. And the Devils are now #13 in the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 16

Plenty of teams have already made it to 50 games, and it’s still pretty crowded. The East race isn’t an eight-team race any longer, and the West is even more heated towards the bottom. The #1 teams are comfortably leading their conferences, but not too much else is certain. Even the Devils are making a […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 15

There are still interesting talking points occurring in the world of hockey. The West’s #4-8 are separated by two points. Boston is up to #2 in the East. Washington will probably need to win their division to earn home-ice advantage, but they’re having trouble getting over that hump. Atlanta has some breathing room over Carolina, […]

Five Third Period Goals Lead B’s Past Flyers, 7-5

With the help of seven different goal scorers on the night, the Bruins powered their way past the beasts of the East, the Philadelphia Flyers Thursday night at the Garden, winning a wild, back-and-forth affair, 7-5. Five third period goals helped the B’s erase three different one-goal deficits, on their way to their third straight […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Flyers, Thursday January 13th

The Bruins (23-12-7) will have their hands full this evening, as they host the East’s top team, the Philadelphia Flyers (27-10-5) at TD Garden. Boston’s offense and defense was unmatched Tuesday night, shutting down the lowly Senators and exploding for six goals, beating Ottawa handily, 6-0. Patrice Bergeron, now the team’s points leader with 32, […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 14

Each team is now officially at least halfway through the season. The Devils are still quite useless and the Canucks are still quite strong. Boston is still ahead of Montreal by two, but hasn’t always been consistent very much at all. Now, five divisions are being led by teams that didn’t win them last season. […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 13

Another week in, and things are starting to shake up. Both #1s from last time were displaced, the West’s middle of the pack has been a revolving door for quite a while, and there is a tie for each top spot. Toronto is 4th worst in the league, so Boston will get a great draft […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 12

The season is almost half over, and the Devils are on pace for 46 points. Eight teams have already surpassed that mark. The Penguins and Red Wings have relatively comfortable leads for now, but have games out of hand to worry about. The Bruins are starting to pull away from the Canadiens, and still have […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 11

There’s been plenty of action before the NHL’s Christmas break, and things are getting quite interesting. The top slots are being challenged, the West’s bottom slots are in such a predicament as well, and it’s a good thing for the Bruins that the Northeast Division is comparatively weak. And nearly half-way through the season, the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NHL Week 10

10 Weeks are gone, and while the East has a clear field of eight, the West is still fighting amongst itself. And right now, the teams with the two most points are in the same Atlantic division. The Bruins completely missed their chance to overtake the Canadiens, and now sit in the lowly #8 as […]

Flyers Top Bruins 2-1 in Overtime

Playing in Boston for the first time since their unbelievable comeback in last year’s playoffs, the Philadelphia Flyers entered hostile territory in the TD Garden on Saturday night. “I felt like (the fans) wanted to get back at us for what happened last year,” Philly goalie Brian Boucher said. “It definitely had that playoff feel. […]

Ice Breakers: Bruins-Flyers, Saturday December 11th

The Bruins (16-8-3) conclude their three-game homestand this evening, hosting the hated Philadelphia Flyers (18-7-5) at TD Garden. Philly’s been one of the league’s top teams this season, which shouldn’t surprise anyone. They currently sit in second place in the Atlantic Division behind another one of the league’s power teams, the Penguins. The Flyers are […]
