The Bolts Yanni Gourde has anchored himself as the Tampa Bay Lightning's third-line centre. [NHL dot com] “After Tampa Bay Lightning forwards combined for just one goal at 5-on-5 play during a four-game road trip in which the Bolts dropped three of the four games, the Lightning coaching staff decided
After a fourth consecutive win – a 4-2 decision over the New York Rangers on Friday – Washington Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen broke things down rather simply. "Hockey's a lot more fun when you're playing well, playing hard for each other like we are right now," he said, per Stephen Whyno of The Associated Press. […]
The Pittsburgh Penguins threw everything and then some at the New York Rangers in the dying moments of the third period. The Rangers simply stuck around in the game and pounced on their opportunities presented to them. Pittsburgh appeared to get a favorable break on the night after it was announced Henrik Lundqvist would miss […]
The Philadelphia Flyers will either end their current 10-game losing streak or see it go to 11 games on Monday as they take on the Flames in Calgary. One theme, at least early on, of this losing streak is blown leads. In the case of this contest against Winnipeg, the trio of Sean Couturier, Jakub […]
It will be nine days between his start against the Predators and his Black Friday win against the Pittsburgh Penguins, and presumably Khudobin has cooled off a little bit after ripping off four wins in a row. It's really not even much in the way of hyperbole to say Khudobin's 7-0-2 beginning to the year […]
Some of the guys even grabbed a haircut in the days in between games. While they may have switched up their look, the Flyers outlook remained the same following a 3-0 loss on home ice to the Boston Bruins (see observations), extending their winless streak to 10 games, two shy of the franchise record. "Yeah, […]
It was ’80s night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, only nobody was dressed as Doc Brown from “Back to the Future,” Michael Jackson’s biggest hits weren’t played during every whistle, and fans weren’t wearing acid-washed jeans. It’s possible only the Ottawa Senators and New York Islanders received the memo. The game had 10 goals […]
During this nine-game skid, the Flyers have scored to take or extend leads 15 times. How much longer will Hextall allow his head coach and players to “battle through this” before a hammer needs to drop?
All good things must come to an end, and for the Bruins that meant that their four game winning streak officially went by the boards on Sunday night. The Bruins didn't exactly expend the required high energy or solid work ethic in dropping a 4-2 game to the Edmonton Oilers where the Bruins were outshot by a […]
It was hard to imagine this could have been possible a couple of weeks ago when injuries were ripping through the roster amid a very challenging stretch of hockey, but the Bruins have managed to survive and thrive within the adversity. With several regulars still missing from the fold including leading scorer Brad Marchand, the […]
Brayden Schenn is hitting all the right notes. The St. Louis Blues forward is riding an eight-game point streak, which has caused him to rise to fourth in the NHL's scoring race. Only Steven Stamkos (35), Nikita Kucherov (33), and Johnny Gaudreau (31) have recorded more points than Schenn, who now sits at 30, albeit […]
Johnny Gaudreau extended his point streak to 10 games with a goal and assist in a 4-1 win over the Capitals. That and more from Monday's top NHL action.
