Devils Goalies Are Helping to Secure Important Wins

The New Jersey Devils net has seen quite a bit of change between the pipes since the start of the 2020-21 shortened season. We thought young star Mackenzie Blackwood would be sharing his time as a starter with two-time Stanley Cup Champion Corey Crawford, but Crawford’s retirement shut that down even before the season began. The team had some decisions to make and ended up bringing in goalies like Aaron Dell for decent backup options. Since then, not only has Blackwood stayed strong in net, but ...

Five of the Worst Halo Cars From the Modern Era

There’s always going to be some debate about what constitutes a good halo vehicle. Many will argue that it has to be a flagship model, representing the absolute best specifications and features the manufacturer could cobble together for an eyewatering price. While that’s often the case, successful halo vehicles don’t always need to be at […] The post Five of the Worst Halo Cars From the Modern Era appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Bandalore, Yo-yo.

The eudæmonist has a fine post called Diabolo, l’emigrette & la dame de pique that begins fetchingly as follows: It’s always the way of things, you are merrily reading a newly acquired translation of Pushkin’s ‘Queen of Spades’ instead of starting your workday, and as you are waiting for the Countess to return from the ball in section three and encounter the not particularly pleasant Hermann (not quite Germain), you observe, with Pushkin, with Hermann, the decorations in the Countess’s room – th...

Ranking NHL Teams By Goaltenders

Now that the 2019-20 NHL season is over and the Stanley Cup playoffs are in full swing, it’s time to rank the teams by position once again. Starting with the goaltenders since that position seems the most solidified on paper across the league as of today. When it comes to ranking goaltenders, starters still carry the most weight despite the fact it’s becoming a two-goalie league, and positional depth is more important than ever before. With that in mind, in the first of a four-part seri...

How are you finding the fake crowd noise during the lockdown Tests? This sound engineer reckons they could be doing a lot more with it

With no fans allowed inside cricket grounds due to the coronavirus crisis, Sky Sports and Test Match Special have been broadcasting fake crowd noise for atmosphere. Could they be doing a better job with this? Crowd noise is very important in cricket. It’s important for atmosphere, obviously, but it can also help you follow the game. If you’re in the next room, making a brew, a crowd roar can alert you that something significant has just taken place. (At this point we can’t help but reprise ...

Coronavirus Financial Crisis: Unemployment Claims Grow As Small Businesses Adapt To Hardships

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — The growing financial crisis is impacting small businesses forcing many workers to turn to unemployment assistance. Susan O’Brien, the owner of The Kitchen Table, is expanding her business online to keep money coming in, but some of her employees are on unemployment. “I had to cut their hours,” she explained. Broadway Coffee Owners Jimmy and Charles say they closed their shop’s doors in mid-March. “All of our employees are currently on unemployment,” they said. The state’s s...

Devils Could Use More Goaltending Prospects

There’s no question the New Jersey Devils need to improve their goaltending situation. Other than the 2017-18 season, it’s been a pressing need for a few years. And former general manager Ray Shero neglected the position for most of his tenure before his firing in January.  There are a couple of ways the Devils can address their netminding needs. If they plan to compete for a playoff spot in 2020-21, they could target unrestricted free agents like Thomas Greiss or Robin Lehner to be a 1B to M...

Cannabis dispensaries essential

Cannabis dispensaries and grocery stores usually don’t have much in common. The same can be said for dispensaries and delivery warehouses, or dispensaries and wastewater treatment plants. But in the era of COVID-19, one common thread ties these service locations together: They’ve all been deemed essential. Of the nine states with legal cannabis in the United States, all but Massachusetts have kept recreational dispensaries open. The number of dispensaries that have remained open is much high...

Devils’ Blackwood Deserves to Be Calder Finalist

There weren’t a lot of positives for the New Jersey Devils before the NHL suspended play because of the coronavirus. But the team was beginning to win some games, as they were 11-5-5 over their last 21 contests. A significant reason for that was the emergence of goaltender Mackenzie Blackwood, who went 8-1-2 with a save percentage (SV%) of .941 over his final 11 games played. Had not it been for Blackwood, the Devils would likely have been heading for a similar point-pace as the Detroit Red W...

3 Nasty Free Agents the Devils Should Avoid

While the NHL announced that the 2019-20 season is temporarily suspended, hockey fans can rest assured that unrestricted free agency won’t be canceled once July arrives. There’s a chance free agency could be pushed back from its normal day of July 1, but it’s never too early to look ahead at the pool of available players to find new homes.

Devils’ Blackwood Emerging as Legit Starting Goalie

There hasn’t been a ton of bright spots for the New Jersey Devils this season. They’re 26-28-12 and will be hoping for some luck in the draft lottery once again. But that doesn’t mean they don’t have players to build around. While his season did not get off to a great start, Mackenzie Blackwood has shined in net since John Hynes’ firing. He had arguably the best February of any goaltender in the NHL and is starting to show he can be a legitimate starter after a difficult beginning to the season....

Adrian Kempe scores winner as Kings top Devils in OT

While this time of year brings its share of critical games in the NHL, the Kings and New Jersey Devils were very much in the dog days of the regular season Saturday afternoon. That didn’t stop them from putting together an exciting finish as the Kings beat the Devils 2-1 in overtime at Staples Center after a slow 40 minutes gave way to a frenetic finale. Adrian Kempe scored the winning goal 1:58 into overtime. Right wing Dustin Brown scored his 14th goal of the season for the Kings. Left wing Je...

Ovechkin, His Milestone Goals & the Goalies He Beat

On June 26, 2004, the Washington Capitals drafted Alexander Ovechkin with the first overall selection in the NHL Draft. It was known then that he would be a special player for the Capitals moving forward, but did anyone know just how historic he would be? Since coming into the league, he’s been arguably the most prolific goal scorer – cementing his place among NHL lore. While he may not have the overall record – yet – it’s becoming more and more of a possibility with each passing game. ...

Kings hope offense takes flight outdoors in Colorado

With some weight off their shoulders, the Kings will face a steep climb in Colorado Springs, where they will take on the Avalanche outdoors at the Air Force Academy’s Falcon Stadium as part of the NHL’s Stadium Series on Saturday. Altitude is one challenge. Their opponents are another for the Kings, who are coming off a 5-4 victory over the Calgary Flames. That snapped a five-game losing streak, which came one game after a prior five-game skid. The Kings get one skate on the temporary ice before...

Kings hope to find finishing touch against Calgary

As the Kings traversed three New York-area arenas, the voice of former basketball star Micheal Ray Richardson – whose career went through New York, New Jersey and Long Island – echoed faintly in the rafters, whispering: “The ship be sinking.” The Kings finished their four-game road trip, which began in Washington, 0-4-0. In their back-to-back set over the weekend, they managed zero goals against one of the NHL’s worst defensive teams, the Devils on Saturday, and just one Sunday against Rangers r...

Kings still searching for goal-scorers as season continues its downhill slide

For all the detailed analysis of Corsi, Fenwick, salary cap space, buyout penalties, contract limits and other esoteric hockey jargon, a total novice could likely identify two major issues for the Kings: they don’t score many goals and the ones they do score, generally, aren’t pretty. A lack of natural finishers has been especially jarring given the number of tight games the Kings have lost this season. Over the past two campaigns, they rank 24th in one-goal-game winning percentage, placing 26th...
