Start Bobrovsky

Start Bobrovsky

Its that time of year. Fall is fading out, and the winter is moving into the City of Brotherly Love. The Alumni Game is being played today and the 2012 NHL Bridgestone Winter Classic is just two days away. I’m looking forward to seeing some of the guys I watched as a child and some that I never got see […]

Canada wins Group B

Canada wins Group B

It came as no surprise when Canada handed Denmark a nice 10-2 beating, thus boosting Canada’s record to 3-0-0. The beat down prompted 5 of the best Danish players to go to the media and produce this hilarious sound bite. The incident unfortunately got each of the players suspended, leaving Denmark to fend without 5 of their best players against the surprisingly […]

Kings Hope to End 2011 with a Win Against the Canucks

It’s been a very interesting 2011 for the Los Angeles Kings, but it wasn’t as successful as they’d hoped. As the Kings head into the new year, they’ll hope that 2012 is filled with much more success, wins, goals, and consistency than 2011 was, but before the Kings head into 2012, they’ll look to end 2011 on a high-note and […]

Will Avery Have a Spot Opening Night? (Bridget Samuels/Wikipedia Commons)

Sean Avery Placed On Waivers

Usually, we don’t report about waiver news, but since it’s Sean Avery, we may as well do it.   The Rangers placed the pesky winger on waivers Friday and if he clears by noon on Saturday, he’d be available to be sent to their American Hockey League affiliate, the Connecticut Whale. Avery started the year with the Whale, as the […]

UPDATED: Another Name Surfaces/ Big Blow

As this season rolls along, the Blues are still on a bit of a hot streak.  Even though Detroit deflated them Monday night, handing them their first loss of the season with a 2 goal lead going into the 3rd period.  Tonight they are back in Nashville ready to take on the Predators again.  No word out of St Louis […]

Power-less Play Strikes Again; Kings Fall to Jets in Overtime

You know, it’s awfully hard to look at this game in a positive light. It’s awfully hard to say that the Kings got a point, that the point got them back in a playoff spot (the extra point would have put them first in the Pacific), that they got three out of four points on this road trip on back-to-back […]
