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. You live in Philadelphia and have purchased NHL.TV (formerly NHL Gamecenter Live) to watch your favorite team, the Tampa Bay Lightning, play. On this night, the Lightning are in town to take on th...

Who The Boston Bruins May Target At The Trade Deadline

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, While some Bruins fans might dream of the stars shipping Tyler Seguin back to the Hub, that’s not happening. But don’t rule out Sweeney and Gorton again swapping assets, as they did this time a year ago and then again on the eve of the new season when Adam McQuaid went down the Amtrak rails for Steven Kampfer. All but assured they’ll miss the playoffs, the Rangers, in Boston Saturday with a 20-20-7 mark, likely will be active traders, which ...

Playoffs or Bust Can’t Be Oilers Mentality

The Edmonton Oilers find themselves in a curious predicament. The limitations of their roster are obvious to any hockey observer and yet the opportunity to grab a playoff spot in a rather pedestrian Western Conference is quite real. Though a return to the post-season remains priority one for the here and now, the long-term viability of this organization being able to enjoy future success is of far greater importance.

Rangers Saddled With Struggling Skjei

The New York Rangers are committed to doing everything possible to help young defenseman Brady Skjei regain his 2016-17 NHL All-Rookie Team form. The solution, however, can truly come from only one place – between Skjei’s ears. Head coach David Quinn has applied his tough love/supportive and nurturing approach. The club has tried multiple partners on the backline, and to that end might even need to consider re-signing a veteran who seemed certain to be headed out of town before the trade d...

Bruins Need Pivotal Piece to Become Cup Contenders

The Boston Bruins’ 2018-19 season has been a rollercoaster, and we haven’t even made it to the All-Star break. It started with a 7-0 loss to the Washington Capitals on opening night that left those in Boston dumbfounded. They followed this up with four wins, however, immediately proving the naysayers wrong. There was one issue: the Bruins were relying heavily upon their top-line trio of David Pastrnak, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. This was quickly targeted by the opposition, and the...

Bruins’ Rask & Halak Trending in Opposite Directions

Don’t look now but the Boston Bruins appear to have a clear-cut No. 1 goaltender and it isn’t Jaroslav Halak. While Halak has been solid in his first season with the Bruins and has compiled a record of 13-8-2 with the NHL’s fifth-highest goals-against average at 2.46 and ninth-best save percentage of .920, he’s lost momentum as of late. Fortunately for the Bruins, however, Rask has finally found his stride and has established himself as the most reliable option in net for the Bruins over the pas...

Why Jake Gardiner Will Leave the Toronto Maple Leafs

Toronto Maple Leaf fans likely won’t agree, but Jake Gardiner is a really good hockey player. If you don’t think so, watch what happens when he becomes an unrestricted free agent after his contract ends this summer. Teams will line up to sign him, and he will accept one of those offers, for good money. There is no question Gardiner will leave the Maple Leafs, but it won’t be because the team doesn’t want him. They simply won’t be able to afford him, nor will he be inclined to stay. The tea...

Bruins Miss on Niederreiter Trade Due to Lack of Center Depth

The Boston Bruins missed the boat on a deal that could have landed them a scoring right winger to fill their top-six hole. It wasn’t necessarily an issue of bad work by general manager Don Sweeney, however, just an issue of timing and team necessity by the Minnesota Wild. Related: Hurricanes Trade Rask to Wild for Niederreiter The Wild and Carolina Hurricanes made a deal Thursday that saw Victor Rask traded to the Wild in exchange for Nino Niederreiter.

Should Maple Leafs’ Fans Be Booing Gardiner?

It all started last season when the Toronto Maple Leafs lost to the Boston Bruins in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Maple Leafs fell apart when it counted and so too did Jake Gardiner, who had a horrendous game. The frustration that fans had towards Gardiner was seemingly building until it boiled over in their  6-3 loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Monday. On a power play with about five minutes left in the second period, Gardiner was pursuing a loose puck back into the Toronto...

Joining Edmonton Oilers a special opportunity for Saskatchewan's Colby Cave

VANCOUVER — Colby Cave grew up cheering for the Edmonton Oilers, watching them play on Saturday nights and plastering blue and orange pennants on his bedroom walls. Now, the 24-year-old native of Battleford, Sask., is playing for the club he's long idolized. Edmonton claimed Cave off waivers from the Boston Bruins earlier this week.

Canadiens & Bruins Reignite Rivalry

When the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens meet, it’s emotional – mostly based on deep hatred for one another.

The Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens have one of the biggest rivalries in sports. (Vince Richard/The Hockey Writers) The story of the Bruins and Canadiens is one of blood, sweat, tears and drama.

Or Kyle Palmieri reminds me of Jamie Langenbrunner. Guess what? You’re not too far off. Both of those former Devils are Stanley Cup champions.
