Golden Knights’ 1st Round Foes – How Do They Stack Up?

Coyotes Weekly: Still in the Playoff Hunt

With less than three weeks to go, and with the Arizona Coyotes still firmly entrenched in a tight race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, there’s no doubt that, over the next few weeks, every game (and point) matters. There are only nine games remaining, and only 18 more points can be gathered, giving the Coyotes a 96-point maximum for this season. Six wins in those nine games will give Arizona 90 points – would that be enough to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs? Can they ...

These are the 1st-round NHL playoff matchups we want to see

The thing about the Stanley Cup playoffs is the first round usually produces the most compelling hockey.Maybe it's because that after a long six-month-plus, drawn-out regular season the players, coaches and fanatics can't wait for the level of hockey to increase a few more degrees.Or maybe it's because the first round has been a home to upsets. The Chicago Blackhawks were the West regular-season champs in 2016-17 and got bounced in a sweep by the eighth-seeded Nashville Predators....

Best things to do in Calgary

Calgary is a city that doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. It doesn’t see nearly the visitor numbers of Vancouver, Toronto, or Montreal, and despite being the largest city in Alberta it’s actually not even the provincial capital. The jumping off point for many of the four million annual visitors to Banff National Park, this city of 1.2 million is a cowtown that’s grown up and found its footing among the country’s modern skylines. It’s one that hasn’t forgotten the roots that make it uniq...

AC 093

Who the fuck decided it was a good idea to schedule a 10-hour flight at 9:00 am? Not only you have to get up at 5:30 a.m. and find a taxi at 6 a.m., but you waste a full day in the plane and you probably can’t doze off because of the many mundane on-board activities, from meal service to duty-free. I like late-afternoon or night flights. You just sit down, buckle up, sleep and wake up where you’re supposed to be. I knew I’d be leaving in the morning when I bought the ticket, but three months ago...
