The Blackhawks got a lift Friday night from a pair of first-year players – only one of whom is technically young enough to be considered a rookie. David Kampf scored his first NHL goal and added an assist on his 23rd birthday, Jeff Glass blocked 31 shots and Chicago held off the Winnipeg Jets 2-1. […]
Edmonton Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli’s has his team in an untenable position. There was a question in the mailbag yesterday that asked how you can fix the Oilers without the use of a time machine to prevent Peter Chiarelli from making a series of inadvisable trades. Chiarelli may or may not be long for the […]
When you consider All-Star voting (in actual ballots and PHT ones) and midseason award picks, the Tampa Bay Lightning hold an almost unfair edge over the rest of the NHL halfway through 2017-18. Star defenseman Victor Hedman left tonight’s game against the Calgary Flames with a lower-body injury and will not return. As strong as […]

It was a weird sight to see Brent Seabrook sitting in a suite as a healthy scratch on Tuesday when the Blackhawks faced the Senators in Ottawa. Despite a 2-1 loss at the United Center, Seabrook scored the Blackhawks' lone goal in the first period. Coach Joel Quenneville said making decisions like sitting the three-time Stanley […]
As you’ve probably heard by now, the Arizona Coyotes traded away Anthony Duclair to the Chicago Blackhawks last night. Richard Panik is the piece that will be able to help Arizona the quickest because Laurent Dauphin will be staying in the minors for now.
Viktor Arvidsson had a goal and an assist, helping the Nashville Predators top the Edmonton Oilers 2-1 on Tuesday night. Craig Smith also scored and Pekka Rinne made 25 saves in Nashville's 11th consecutive win against Edmonton. The free-falling Oilers have lost seven of eight.
The Nashville Predators came into Tuesday as a team slightly struggling. Arvidsson got his game back on track on Tuesday, however, grabbing the game-winner and assisting on the Nashville’s first goal of the game in a hard-fought 2-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on NBCSN. Viktor Arvidsson had his hand in both of the Predators’ […]
As you’ve noticed from interminable waiting periods for marginal calls – in the NHL, but also in plenty of other sports, with the NFL providing some of the funniest optics over the years – it can be excruciating in practice.

A couple of years ago the Arizona Coyotes had a pair of exciting rookies in Anthony Duclair and Max Domi that looked like they could be core building blocks well into the future. Today, Domi has three goals in 43 games (after scoring nine in 59 games a season ago) and Duclair is now a […]
