Tampa Bay Lightning forward Mike Kostka is probably not the biggest fan of Douglas Murray right about now. On Tuesday night, Murray absolutely plowed Kostka near the blue line and Kostka seemed to be out cold. It looked like he went right after his head, and it also looks...

This is the kind of crap I’m talking about. Yes, it’s fun to see the NHLers go out there and fight it out for their countries, but they aren’t being paid by their countries as their livelihood. Their NHL team is. So while “going for gold” sounds good and...

We found this headline to be a little misleading as well. The Phoenix Coyotes have announced that they are officially changing their name. To what? The Pelicans? The Sherrif Arpaio’s? Nope, the Arizona Coyotes, which will go into effect next season. Big whoop. “We are very excited to announce...

The Philadelphia Flyers have an odd and frustrating history with goalies. Sure, when they had Ron Hextall (the first time), he was lights out. Not many players in any sport get awarded MVP of their league title in a losing effort, but Hextall did that in the 1987 Stanley...

Remember when the Buffalo Sabres gave Ville Leino a six-year, $27 million contract back in 2011? Think they’d do that again? I’m guess not based on his play this year. And I’m not the only one who has noticed that Leino stinks on ice literally. Head coach Ted Nolan...

If you are a nerd and play fantasy hockey like I do, you care about this stuff. The Colubmus Blue Jackets have taken forward Brandon Dubinsky off of injured reserve. Dubinsky’s foot has caused him to miss the last six games and it’s been killing my team. He’s expected...
