The Montreal Canadiens traded forward Torrey Mitchell to the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday for a 2018 fifth-round conditional draft pick.
The Buffalo Sabres could use a win more than ever. The struggling Sabres held a team-only meeting after the game, and both players and coaches didn't hold back afterward. The Sabres (5-13-4) will get a shot at some redemption on Friday in a home game against the Edmonton Oilers.
There may not be a more intriguing story in the NHL this year than what is going on in Sin City. Defying all the odds, the Vegas Golden Knights — a team comprised of spare parts that general manager George McPhee picked out of a discard bin this past summer — sit on top of […]
The surging Winnipeg Jets continue a four-game road trip against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday afternoon at Honda Center. Winnipeg (13-5-3) is keeping pace with the leaders in the Central Division with a 7-2-1 record in its last 10 games, including a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday night at Staples Center. […]
On Friday night, the Dallas Stars will raise Jere Lehtinen's No. 26 to the rafters at American Airlines Center, honoring the longtime fan favorite from the 1999 Stanley Cup champions who spent his entire NHL career in Dallas. Like that '99 team, the Stars are again coached by Ken Hitchcock. Dallas lost 3-0 on Wednesday […]
Whether passing or shooting, Nathan MacKinnon's stick work has been at the center of Colorado's offensive surge. MacKinnon had three assists, including one off a faceoff with a second remaining in the second period, and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Dallas Stars 3-0 on Wednesday night to remain nearly unbeatable at home. Erik Johnson, Nail […]
The Nova Scotia-born speed demon carried two 20+ goal seasons and three 50+ point campaigns into 2017-18, which in the tough-to-score NHL, is nothing to sneeze at. Well, through the first quarter of this season, it seems like MacKinnon is “finally” making that next step, and making us feel silly for worrying too much about […]
The San Jose Sharks woke up this Thanksgiving and found themselves in a playoff spot, albeit barely. They hold the second and final wild card spot by the thinnest of margins, edging out the Colorado Avalanche not on points, games played, regulation and
There were so many mistakes to be found in the Flyers' 5-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks Tuesday night that head coach Dave Hakstol surprisingly admitted even he could have done things differently by pulling Michal Neuvirth after the goalie gave up a third goal in the opening minutes of the second period. Starting for […]
The Tampa Bay Lightning edged the Chicago Blackhawks – barely – on Wednesday to leapfrog back over the St. Louis Blues for the top record in the NHL. It was an exciting overtime period, with Point being stopped all in alone earlier in the OT, and the same happening to Patrick Kane on a breakaway. […]
The penalty kill unit that ranked fourth in the league entering the matchup, however, killed off all three of those penalties against the NHL's top-ranked power play, and did so in commanding fashion. The Blackhawks went 5-for-5 on the penalty kill in regulation, but couldn't stop the sixth one – a questionable slashing call on Nick Schmaltz – in […]
There are three games on Tuesday, yet we’ve already seen two goalies benched for poor play. The most depressing probably came during Tuesday’s game between the Edmonton Oilers and St. Louis Blues, which you can watch on NBCSN right now. Now, you can justifiably hang a lot of the Oilers’ struggles on poor management from […]
