Coyotes Weekly: Still in the Playoff Hunt

With less than three weeks to go, and with the Arizona Coyotes still firmly entrenched in a tight race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, there’s no doubt that, over the next few weeks, every game (and point) matters. There are only nine games remaining, and only 18 more points can be gathered, giving the Coyotes a 96-point maximum for this season. Six wins in those nine games will give Arizona 90 points – would that be enough to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs? Can they ...

Where is Brandon Pirri?

Four, three, two, one. Those numbers speak to the career of one, Brandon Pirri, the journeyman winger who is currently a member of the Vegas Golden Knights. His path to the Golden Knights has been an interesting one, to say the least. At just 27 years old, Pirri has already been a part of five different organizations, playing meaningful NHL games for each team. Now with the Golden Knights, Pirri is experiencing an unfortunately familiar fate, stuck as the odd-man out, the dreaded healthy scratch...

Hockey Analytics & Advanced Stats Can Take out the Guesswork

Dylan Strome is tearing it up for the Chicago Blackhawks after putting up paltry numbers the last two seasons for the Arizona Coyotes, the team that drafted him third overall in 2015. Eric Staal experienced a career renaissance with the Minnesota Wild in 2016-17 and 2017-18, and this season to a lesser degree, after many thought his days of stardom were finished with the Carolina Hurricanes. Andrew Ladd and Brent Seabrook have seen their statistics take a large nosedive after receiving large con...

Six Women Who Are Revolutionizing the World of Fly Fishing

To the casual observer, the world of fly fishing may look like a totally male-dominated endeavor. Dig a little deeper, however, and you will inevitably discover the long-held and enduring legacy that female anglers have imprinted on the sport. It was Joan Wulff who changed the sport forever. In 1943, at the age of sixteen, she walked away with top honors in the national dry fly accuracy championship. From there she would go on to rack up twenty-one additional casting titles before ultimately win...

Business briefly: US stocks give up an early rally; JLL buys HFF in Texas

U.S. stock indexes closed mostly lower Tuesday after a late-afternoon splash of selling erased early gains, ending a weeklong rally. Banks accounted for much of the decline, along with utilities and industrial companies. Those losses offset gains in health care, technology and consumer products stocks. The S&P 500 index slipped 0.37 points, or 0.01 percent, to 2,832.57. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 26.72 points, or 0.1 percent, to 25,887.38. The Nasdaq composite gained 9.47 points, o...

Radio: 88.5 FM program director Sky Daniels is retiring, and here’s what he’s planning to do next

“No, Bean and I are not forming a duo in U.K. radio,” joked former KCSN (88.5 FM) programmer Sky Daniels, referring to the news that half of KROQ’s Kevin and Bean morning team is leaving local radio and moving to England. But in a blow to both the local radio and local music scenes, Daniels is leaving as well, making the decision to retire. “I thought I was retiring in 2011,” Daniels told me. “I had been dealing with some health issues related to Crohn’s Disease and the related medications for 1...

The 50 Goal Season

On Mar. 18, 1945, in the final game of the 1944-45 season, Maurice ‘Rocket’ Richard of the Montreal Canadiens becomes the first player in NHL history to score 50 goals in one season.

Written by former THW contributor Mike Moore and originally published on Jan. 9, 2011.   The Rocket did it first. I don’t believe in astrology, so pardon me when I borrow the expre...

How Could It Not Be A Goal?

from Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet, But whenever Vancouver fans think of Sunday’s game, it won’t be for Schaller scoring a deuce or Josh Leivo sniping the shootout winner. It will be for rookie Elias Pettersson being denied a second-period goal when Stars goaltender Anton Khudobin foiled Pettersson on a second-period penalty shot by throwing his stick straight into the Swede’s feet. Despite clear wording in the NHL rulebook that a goal should have been awarded automatically on Khudobin’...
