NHL Short Notes

THREE HARD LAPS * J.T. Compher scored the first hat trick of his NHL career and Philipp Grubauer turned aside all 18 shots he faced as the Avalanche, who improved to 15-0-1 in their last 16 games at Ball Arena, clinched home-ice advantage for the First Round where they will face either the Wild or Blues. If Colorado defeats Los Angeles in any fashion tonight, it will claim the Presidents’ Trophy and Honda West Division crown while simultaneously finalizing the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs bra...

Connor McDavid

A headline is not needed, just see the words Connor McDavid and start reading. from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, “Honestly, it’s impressive. I don’t think my English is good enough to find another word for it right now,” said Leon Draisaitl, whose second goal of the evening -- a patented McDavid-to-Draisaitl one-timer -- marked Connor McDavid’s 100th point in just 53 games this season. “Everyone, the 20 people who were in the building, were all counting.” It is a crime that such a mom...

Hockey Notes On A Sunday Morning

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - What Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl have combined for over a two-year period with the Edmonton Oilers is remarkably rare and historically improbable. Last year, Draisaitl won the NHL scoring title and the Hart Trophy as most valuable player. McDavid finished second in scoring. This season, McDavid is on his way to the breathtaking figure of 100 points or more in 56 games and will be the runaway winner of the Hart. Draisaitl, meanwhile, w...

A Roller Skate Which ‘Mimics An On-Ice Stride

from Michael Traikos, When the inventor of a new type of hockey skate claims that it can make Connor McDavid even faster than he already is, the first instinct is to roll your eyes and add it to the pile of failed gimmicks collecting dust in the back of your local pro shop. But Per Mars is not just another snake-oil salesman. And Marsblade is not just another version of the Reebok Pump. Since 2011, the former NHLer-turned-inventor has been disrupting the in-line hockey market with...

Our Game Is Not Broken

from Michael Traikos, Now that the blood has dried and we’re done shaking our collective fists at Tom Wilson, George Parros and the old-school culture of settling scores, can we please go back to marvelling at what Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews have done so far this season? Can we talk about the emergence of Adam Fox as a Norris Trophy contender and the endurance of Sidney Crosby as one of the game’s best players? Can we go back to debating whether Russian veteran Kirill Kaprizov...

Should The Edmonton Oilers Be Feared In The Playoffs?

from Mark Spector of Sportsnet, It has been inevitable for some time now, so it’s easy for hockey fans in other markets to see the Edmonton Oilers clinch a playoff spot and simply shrug their shoulders. But for long suffering Oilers fans, whose team has made the playoffs exactly five times now in this 21st century — and just twice in the past 14 seasons — it is time to stop, maybe crack a beer, and enjoy a long slow pull. With a 5-3 win against the Vancouver Canucks Monday night, ...

Early May Hockey Notes

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - The shortened NHL schedule is robbing Maple Leafs fans and their two best players of possible team records. The Leafs are playing at 113-point pace. The most points they’ve ever had in any season is 105. Auston Matthews leads the NHL and is scoring at 62-goal pace. No Leaf has ever had more than 54 goals in a season. Mitch Marner is scoring at 101-point pace. No Leafs winger has ever been over 100 points. No individual records or team records will ...
