Going into last night’s game against Colorado, the Buffalo Sabres had scored just 56 goals this season. One of the big reasons why the Sabres haven’t found the back of the net more, is because their defensemen had combined for zero (yes, zero) goals through 27 games. Jake McCabe‘s goal at the 18:59 mark of […]
Maybe the Edmonton Oilers should just sit the rest of this season out because it is become pretty clear that nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, is going to go their way. Things reached a new low for the 2017-18 season on Thursday night when they dropped a 6-4 decision at home to the Toronto […]
Can a two-game road trip be a long road trip? The Minnesota Wild might feel that way, as they’ve been drubbed by two Central Division rivals in as many games. First, the Blues handled them 6-3 on Saturday. Things only got worse tonight as the red
Colorado Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog will sit for four games after he was suspended for a cross-check to the head/neck area of Calgary Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk Saturday night. Landeskog was given a minor on the play, but the situation and severity of the cross-check caused this to be looked at by the NHL’s Department […]
Ryan Kesler starred in a profoundly odd video on Sunday. The Ducks have since deleted the “insensitive” video, apologizing for its poor taste. The @AnaheimDucks released this cringe-worthy and tone-deaf video of Kesler walking the office naked.
The Anaheim Ducks apologized for – and removed – a video posted on the team’s Twitter account that was supposed to be in celebration of the NHL’s 100th anniversary on Sunday. Our tweet posted earlier today was meant to be a lighthearted video celebrating the NHL’s 100th birthday. We realize in retrospect the content of […]
Vladimir Tarasenko earns the nickname “Tank” because he’s a big, hoss-like scorer and because it matches up well with his name. The bout happened even as the Oilers seemed like they were getting a precious scoring chance, but the crowd in St. Louis was riled up mainly to see the superstar drop the gloves. In […]
Finally: Ryan Johansen scored his first goal since his scary surgery during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, not to mention signing that big contract. By Hockey Reference’s numbers, he’s gone from almost two-and-a-half SOG per game during his Columbus days (2.30, with those numbers climbing as he established himself) to less than two per night in […]
Not going to lie, it bums me out a bit that superb dog Charlie didn’t get to “shake hands” with John Tavares and Justin Faulk, but it might have confused the pup, who’s being trained to help a U.S. army veteran. Charlie seems to be a star at the site, as the front page features […]
Jussi Jokinen (to Los Angeles Kings) from a variety of angles. One of the most optimistic scenarios was reflected in the headline: what if Edmonton tries to diversify its offense by putting Cammalleri on Connor McDavid‘s wing, possibly opening up Leon Draisaitl to try to carry his own line? Bob McKenzie swung by the NBCSN […]

Update: The Penguins ended up winning 5-4 in overtime. The Buffalo Sabres aren’t making the strides they were hoping for this season, but don’t blame Jack Eichel. At least, don’t bury Eichel for a lack of scoring or a lack of emotion.
