Year after year, the NHL produces some truly mind-boggling statistics. It’s one thing to know who leads the league in scoring or which goaltender has the lowest goals-against average. It’s another altogether to know which team is giving up nearly half of its total goals in the third period, or which defenseman has given the […]
Get ready for another edition of Sidney Crosby versus Alex Ovechkin.

The first-time 40-goal scorer vented to […]
The Washington Capitals and Toronto Maple Leafs have played an exceptionally even series, with four of the five games going into overtime.
Matt Murray‘s one win away from the Stanley Cup. His next spring win, should it come, will also put the Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender into the NHL record books. It would be his 15th, tying him with Patrick Roy, Ron Hextall, and Cam Ward for the most wins in a postseason by a rookie 'tender. Heady […]
