Predators’ Win Over Sharks Full of Milestones

On March 16, the Nashville Predators defeated the San Jose Sharks 4-2 to conclude a vital California road trip. The game against the Sharks was the most important of the trip as they are a playoff team and serve as a measuring stick for the Predators. Well, Nashville passed the test after they twice lost a one-goal lead only to regain said lead. It was a statement game for them as they’ve struggled in recent weeks. However, the game was more than a key victory over a quality opponent late in the...

Revisiting David Poile’s Drafts – 1998

The Nashville Predators have been an NHL franchise since the 1998-99 season after the city was granted an expansion team in June 1997. In their 20 seasons of existence, there has been one constant: general manager David Poile, who’s served that role since the franchise’s inception. Therefore, he’s been the architect of every team that’s suited up, from the inaugural roster through the 2018-19 rendition. That means he’s been the decision-maker in a lot of drafts and has made a lot of picks, 178 t...

March Madness 2019: NCAA Tournament South Region breakdown

With so much going on, who can remember what happened the last time Virginia was the No. 1 seed in the South Region? Oh right, everyone does. Last year Virginia became the first No. 1 seed to lose in the first round – and it wasn’t close, with No. 16 UMBC winning by 20. After a stellar regular season – the only losses were to No. 1 overall seed Duke — now the Cavs are right back in the same spot. Will the added motivation lead to their first Final Four in 35 years, or will the added pressure lea...

Bruins Round Table: 7th Player Award

Every season, New England Sports Network presents one Boston Bruin with the 7th Player Award an honor given to the player who most exceeded expectations as voted by fans. The award has a rich history – it was first given to longtime Bruin Ed Westfall in the 1968-69 season and has been awarded to a player in every non-lockout season since.

Senators Hope Veronneau Breaks College UFA Trend

The Ottawa Senators signed NCAA free agent Max Veronneau to a two-year, entry-level contract on March 12, adding to their prospect pool in the midst of their rebuild. The 23-year-old was drawing interest league-wide, as up to 25 teams contacted the free agent’s camp. The Senators are no stranger to signing NCAA free agents but haven’t had the best luck in the past. They are hoping Veronneau can change that. “We are very excited to have Max join the Ottawa Senators,” said Senators general m...

Blues’ Perron Returns in Form

A lot of things have changed for the St. Louis Blues since David Perron played his last game on Jan. 17. They seem to have a new starting goaltender; they’ve climbed back into a playoff spot; and they’ve even added a new face into the clubhouse in Michael Del Zotto, a trade deadline acquisition from the Anaheim Ducks. In all that time, the team has missed their veteran winger, who returned this summer for his third stint in St. Louis on a four-year, $16 million contract. Even after missing two m...

Eric Staal, Jared Spurgeon and J.T. Brown also scored for the Wild, who snapped a three-game losing streak that dropped them out of the final wild card in the Western Conference.

Maple Leafs, Bruins Set on Collision Course

Call it destiny. Or call it a recurring nightmare. Your name for it completely depends on what side of the puck you’re sitting on – the Boston Bruins or the Toronto Maple Leafs. Either way, it looks as though both teams will likely be staring each other down once again when the Stanley Cup playoffs kick off in just over a month. While there’s still time for things to change, it seems fitting that the Bruins and Maple Leafs hold down the second and third spots, respectively, in the Atlantic Divis...

Devils’ Agostino Proving to Be Savvy Waiver Claim

It’s hard to find a lot of positives for a team like the New Jersey Devils, who sit at the bottom of the NHL and out of playoff contention. They also have a roster mainly composed of players who may not be around much longer. That makes trying to project things beyond this season more difficult, especially with all the team’s injuries. Through all those injuries, there’s one player who’s stood out, Kenny Agostino. He was claimed off waivers by the Devils a little more than a month ago and has fi...

Flyers 2nd Half a Success Regardless of Outcome

There are 11 games remaining in the 2018-19 season, and the Philadelphia Flyers much closer to the playoff bubble than most thought they would be at this time. On Dec. 17, they were last in the Eastern Conference and most fans were thinking whether they preferred Jack Hughes or Kaapo Kakko, two highly-touted prospects in the upcoming draft. Yet now the question has shifted to, “Can they make the playoffs?” Even sniffing the playoffs was an afterthought in December, a pipe dream at best. Yet the ...
