4 Questions the Penguins Will Face After the All-Star Break

The Pittsburgh Penguins will head into the 2019 All-Star break with a 26-16-6 record, good for 58 points and fourth place in a tight Metropolitan Division. The team is holding on to the second wild-card spot for dear life despite having the fourth-best goal differential in the Eastern Conference. There’s still plenty of reason to be optimistic about the Penguins though, especially for a team that was tied for the fewest points in the East on Nov. 20. Pittsburgh is home to multiple all-time...

The Grind Line: Red Wings’ Keys to Present & Future Consistency

What’s The Grind Line? Apart from the once-famous line of Kris Draper, Kirk Maltby, and either Joe Kocur or Darren McCarty, The Grind Line is also The Hockey Writers’ weekly column about the Detroit Red Wings. Rachel Anderson and Tony Wolak are the muckers who makeup THW’s forechecking unit and sound off on Red Wings topics. The Red Wings are fluctuating as the season progresses, between showing signs of life and regression. There is no denying they have the essential pieces to create momentum,...

NHL TV Blackouts & Why They Happen?

Picture a scenario. Your local NHL team is playing a nationally-televised game. It’s on NBCSN, which you access through an app because you don’t have cable or satellite. You’re excited to watch it, but when you turn it on, you’re denied because of a tv blackout based on your location. Another scenario.

Blues’ Perron Proving to be Perfect Signing

With no disrespect to David Perron, the news that the winger had signed once again with the St. Louis Blues last summer was met with mixed reactions. Very few were excited. Many were indifferent. Some were disgusted. After a disappointing 2017-18 season in which the Blues missed the playoffs for the first time in over half a decade, the team’s decision to turn yet again to Perron, who had departed to the Vegas Golden Knights in the expansion draft a year prior, was simply not the impact mo...

Ducks rookie Troy Terry scores 1st NHL goal, but had no idea

NEWARK, N.J. — Troy Terry wasn’t sure what happened. He shot the puck on net and it felt like a quality attempt as it left his stick. The crowd at the Prudential Center grew quiet and all of a sudden his Ducks teammates began skating toward him with smiles on their faces and their arms raised over their heads. Here’s what happened: Terry had scored his first NHL goal. It didn’t prompt much of a celebration from him because he wasn’t sure he had scored. “When I shot it, I tried to just shoot it t...

Morning Player Notes (Jan 19)

The Pittsburgh Penguins made the decision on Friday night to sit defenseman Jamie Oleksiak for their game against the Arizona Coyotes, probably more to give him the night off more than anything else, but his last five games have been fairly uneventful, no points and 7 PIM, and they may not have really needed his dominating size against an agile Coyotes team that would probably skate circles [Author: Clayton Corley]

The Arizona Coyotes Gain A Point To Remain In The Playoff Hunt

from Richard Morin of azcentral.com, When NHL play wrapped up Friday night, the Coyotes found themselves still just four points out of a playoff spot despite earning just one of a possible two points in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday at Gila River Arena. The Coyotes had a would-be tying goal disallowed early in the third period only to tie the game once again with just minutes left in regulation, but a Coyotes penalty in overtime led to a power-play winner fo...

The Anaheim Ducks Won Their First Game Since December 17th

from Elliott Teaford of the OC Register, The streak died a noisy death Thursday night at Xcel Energy Center.

How Much Trade Value Does Derrick Brassard Have Left?

After losing Nick Bonino to free agency during the 2017 offseason, the Pittsburgh Penguins knew that the lack of a quality third-line center would be a glaring fault for the 2017-18 campaign. Trade rumors swirled for most of the season before the team acquired Derrick Brassard from the Ottawa Senators just days before the trade deadline. At the time, it was thought to be a great trade for Pittsburgh, a team that had hopes for a third consecutive Stanley Cup. Brassard was supposed to provide a bo...
