Mark Arcobello had a choice between shuttling to and from the minor leagues in North America and taking his talents to Europe. Arcobello, who went to Europe a year for some stability before the NHL decided not to participate in the Olympics, said he is glad he took the path less traveled because it helped […]
The Chicago Blackhawks are running out of time to make the playoffs. The Arizona Coyotes are running out of games to make something out of their lost season. Two Western Conference teams experiencing terrible Februarys meet for the third time this season on Monday night at Gila River Arena, and each must be asking: Will […]
The Arizona Coyotes haven't had many nights like this one. Max Domi, Clayton Keller, Alex Goligoski and Tobias Rieder each had a goal and an assist, and the Coyotes pounded the slumping Blackhawks 6-1 on Monday. The Coyotes ended a nine-game losing streak to the Blackhawks and sent last-place Chicago to its season-high sixth straight […]

During the 2015-16 season, Mirai Nagasu was a member of the Colorado Avalanche’s “Ice Girls.” All apologies to speedsters such as Nathan MacKinnon, but chances are, she was the most skilled skater on that surface every night. Nagasu made some history at the 2018 Winter Olympics today, becoming the first American woman to successfully pull […]
Don’t believe anyone who tells you the NHL isn’t here. The NHL has sent the very best to the Olympics. “There’s not a lot of skating [in South Korea] in general,” said Ryan Hevern, 26, who is here from Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Things looked to be getting nasty between P.K. Subban and his former teammates. Subban was held off the scoresheet and played a turnover-filled game, but his Nashville Predators still pulled out a 3-2 shootout victory on Saturday night – mainly thanks to the outstanding play of goalie Pekka Rinne who made 47 saves, including 10 […]
Be sure to visit NBCOlympics.com and NBC Olympic Talk for full hockey coverage from PyeongChang. If “living well is the best revenge,” then P.K. Subban is essentially going Charles Bronson on the Montreal Canadiens since the notorious Shea Weber trade.
