October 31st Predictions (Happy Halloween)

October 31st Predictions (Happy Halloween)

  Yesterday, I was above .500% with my predictions for the first time in a while. Today, there will only be 3 games in the NHL on this Halloween night.   Sharks(6-3-0)/Rangers(3-3-3): Rangers over Sharks 3-1 – This is an easy pick (for me) because we all know how John Tortorella gets so mad, especially this year by stating that […]

NHL Rumor-Marty Turco

NHL Rumor-Marty Turco

Team(s) Interested: Columbus Blue Jackets- The Blue Jackets are off to not a great start. With only 1 win in 11 games, nothing at all is going right for Columbus. Vinny Prospal (10 Points) and Rick Nash (9 Points) are the only ones actually contributing so far. A big problem for Columbus is their goaltending. Steve Mason has the lone […]

Another Day, Another Fluke Goal Results in a Kings Loss

Yikes. How you lose a game when you double the other team in shots is beyond me. However, that’s exactly what the Kings did Sunday night in Denver, as the Kings dropped their second game of the weekend and fall to 6-3-2 on the year. Jonathan Quick started again tonight after playing yesterday, and that ended up being the wrong […]

Without Time to Dwell on Loss, Kings Head to Colorado

You can be sure that the Los Angeles Kings feel like they let an extra point slip away from them in Phoenix last night, but fortunately for them, they won’t have any time to worry about that as they’re right back at it today in Colorado to take on the Avalanche. The Kings will be looking to try and keep their […]

Are the Flyers Back on Track??

The Flyers knew what needed to be done on Saturday night. They were in a slump: goaltending was terrible, defense was even worse, and goals were hard to come by. They had a chance to turn it all around against former teammate Brian Boucher and the Carolina Hurricanes as they visited the City of Brotherly Love. Ilya Bryzgalov, who was […]

Kings Only Able to Grab Single Point After Getting Outplayed in the Desert

The Los Angeles Kings seemed to be on their heels for most of the night and were outplayed by the speedy, resilient Coyotes, and finally Phoenix ended it in overtime, as Daymond Langkow took a shot from the side of the net that went off the stick of Jack Johnson and beat Jonathan Quick. It only seemed like a matter […]

Game 11: Habs Vs. Bruins. Round 2

Game 11: Habs Vs. Bruins. Round 2

If you read my post earlier, you would have read that I was going to be trying something different for tonight’s write up.My idea is essentially, watching the game through twitter. Instead of just writing about the game I thought it’d be cool to put tweets from the Habs people into one twitter feed. I included tweets that let you know […]
