The Secret To Success In The Stanley Cup Playoffs

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province, The drama isn’t over but the NHL’s first round has again served up an exquisite set of storylines with a new cast of heroes and goats, each unique, each resistant to a quick and easy judgment on the state of the game. If the NHL is trending towards youth, for example, someone forgot to tell the Washington Capitals, New York Islanders, St. Louis Blues and San Jose Sharks, four teams built around veterans who are making noise this spring. The Is...

How These Columbus Blue Jackets Were Built

At long last, the Columbus Blue Jackets and their fans have something to celebrate that will last a lifetime. The Blue Jackets swept the top-seeded Tampa Bay Lightning out of the first round of the 2019 NHL Playoffs in stunning fashion. The hockey world will remember this for a long time.

The question that a lot of people want to know is just ...

The NHL’s Department of Player Safety – A Model of Inconsistency

Personally, I think it’s been one of the best years in a while when it comes to supplemental discipline handed down from the NHL’s Department of Player Safety (DoPS). For the most part, they’ve been consistent and relatively fair in terms of who they suspend and for how long. Players like Evgeni Malkin and Connor McDavid even had their names brought before the board as they, too, were culprits in breaking the rules of the game at times this season. But like the NHL’s officiating, thhat seems ...

The Lightning’s Week from Hell

It has been a rough week for hockey in Tampa. On Friday, April 19th, the mood around the city was optimistic, despite the fact that the Tampa Bay Lightning blew a three-goal lead in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup playoffs. This was the team that won 62 games after all, so one bad game couldn’t derail the postseason… right? As we all know, the Lightning’s historic season ended with one more note to the record books, a 4-0 sweep at the hands of the Columbus Blue Jackets. This meltdown is widely con...

Why the Lightning and Penguins Were Eliminated

Scotty Bowman had already coached six teams to the Stanley Cup championship when his high-powered Detroit Red Wings that won 12 of their first 14 playoff games couldn’t get the puck away from the New Jersey Devils and got swept in the 1995 final. “They just shut us right down,” Bowman said. “We were shocked, but it happens.” The coach with the most Stanley Cup rings in NHL history wasn’t as shocked to see the Tampa Bay Lightning get swept out of the first round this post-season after tyi...

Matt Duchene singing to his son for the first time is simply adorable

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Matt Duchene singing a Grammy-award winning song to his young son — Beau — should do the trick. It appears that helping his team sweep the President Trophy-winning Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs has opened up a little bit of extra time for Mr. Duchene to pull out the guitar and sing 'Shallow' from the widely-popular film, A Star is Born. Based on his adorable reaction to his father's performance, Beau was liking wha...

How the Lightning Melted Down in 3 Easy Steps

After having one of the greatest regular seasons in NHL history, the Tampa Bay Lightning went from the top of the hockey world to the laughingstock of the league in less than one week.
