Oilers Blown Out by Flames in Last Game Before Trade Deadline

If there is nothing else to be said about the Edmonton Oilers’ performance on Saturday night, it’s that they don’t have an interesting sense of timing. Edmonton’s last game before…

Being Ken Holland

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, ...what’s it been like to be Ken Holland? “For me, I go to my condo and the rink when I’m in Edmonton,” he said of the two destinations that are only 400 or 500 steps across the street from each other. “When I’m on the road, I go down from my hotel room down to the meal room, go to the rink and then to the plane to fly to the next spot. “There’s no social activity. There’s no going out anywhere. That’s the NHL-NHLPA (Players Association) pro...

Wings Involved In A Three Team Trade

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today acquired defenseman David Savard from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for defenseman Brian Lashoff and subsequently traded Savard to the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft.

Hiking the Chilkoot Trail from Alaska to British Columbia

The Chilkoot Trail, which begins on tidewater in Alaska and climbs up over mountains in British Columbia, presents a unique backpacking opportunity, as this is a trail rich with history. It was the main trail used in the famous Klondike Gold Rush of the late 1800’s, one of the biggest rushes the world has ever seen. An international crowd of literally tens of thousands, fueled by dreams of riches, used the Chilkoot Trail to chase the gold in the Yukon. Most suffered incredible hardship, many nev...

Ducks send rookie Trevor Zegras to minors to adjust to center position

The evolution of Trevor Zegras continued Monday, when the Ducks reassigned the 20-year-old rookie to their AHL team, the San Diego Gulls. It shouldn’t be considered a demotion, but a chance to hone his craft at another position, according to General Manager Bob Murray. Zegras played his first 17 games with the Ducks as a left wing, scoring one goal and adding six assists with a plus-2 defensive rating in an average of 14:38 of ice time. The Ducks want him to continue his career as a center, whic...

The Sinking Calgary Flames

from Eric Francis of Sportsnet, Someone forgot to tell the Flames you’re supposed to search for eggs on Easter Sunday, not lay them. That’s what the Flames did in the third period of a game they led the Toronto Maple Leafs midway through before allowing three straight goals in a 4-2 loss – their seventh in the last eight games. They pulled the same stunt two nights earlier in Edmonton where they also turned a 2-2 tie into a third-period loss. Rinse and repeat for a rudderless ...

Eyes On First Place In the North Division

from Michael Traikos of the National Post, The first-place Leafs, who play in Winnipeg on Wednesday and Friday, have a half-dozen games remaining against the second-place Jets. For fans, it’s yet another playoff preview, a chance to see how the top two teams in Canada match up against one another. For the Leafs, it’s more than that. It’s a chance to hang on to the top spot in the North Division and put some more distance between themselves and a team that is just one point back of the...

NHL Short Notes

THREE HARD LAPS * On Oct. 1, 1997, Patrick Marleau skated in his first NHL game and last night he skated in his 1,757th – only one other player in NHL history has hit that mark, Gordie Howe (1,767 GP). * Cale Makar and Philipp Grubauer combined to help the Avalanche extend their point streak to 11 contests, one shy of the longest run by any team this season. * Darnell Nurse became the NHL’s leading goal scorer among defensemen after his 12th tally of the season won the game for Edmonton i...

Leafs Report Cards: Toronto concludes successful season series vs. Edmonton with overtime loss

Good process, bad result. Despite controlling 62 percent of the scoring chances at 5v5, the Toronto Maple Leafs ended up losing in overtime to the Edmonton Oilers by a final score of 3-2. Connor McDavid was actually held pointless in regulation thanks to some excellent defending from Toronto’s shutdown pair and good team defense through […] The post Leafs Report Cards: Toronto concludes successful season series vs. Edmonton with overtime loss appeared first on Maple Leafs Hotstove.

Trade Candidates

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News, We’ll stick to the 11 — count ’em, 11! — unrestricted free agents on the roster, who are pure rentals for contending teams and are most likely to be traded this time of year. Likely on the go ►Marc Staal: It appears defensemen might become valuable assets leading up to, and including, April 12. There are key injuries occurring around the league, and let’s face it, an experienced defenseman is always handy, and valuable insurance for a contendin...

Monday Hockey Thoughts

from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, - I will admit this even if it makes me look unprofessional, but I’m rooting for a Buffalo victory. No one deserves this level of on-ice misery in such a mentally challenging isolation season. With two weeks until the trade deadline, no GM is using more data than Kevyn Adams. The Sabres are out of the race and not pretending otherwise. I thought he did well to get two picks for Eric Staal, and Adams tried for a second-rounder before committing to M...

He’s back. Auston Matthews scored the game-winning goal in overtime to help the Toronto Maple Leafs secure a 4-3 comeback victory in overtime against the Edmonton Oilers. It was his worst chance of the game, but sometimes you need a bounce. Speaking of bounces, the Leafs rang four pucks off the iron in this game.

Video- A Four Goal Night For Andrew Copp

from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun, One week ago, Andrew Copp was scoring at a snail’s pace, with one goal in his last 23 games. Wednesday night in Vancouver, the Winnipeg Jets winger morphed into a sniper, scoring his first career NHL hat trick then going one further for a four-goal explosion in a 5-1 Jets win. “I’m going to have a hard time remembering my last four-goal game,” Copp said, as he hit 10 goals on the season. “I don’t know if that’s ever happened before. So it’s a...

Blues Finally Getting Top End Results From Top-Line Scorers

In knocking in a sloppy rebound past San Jose Sharks’ goalie Devan Dubnyk for a decisive goal in the St. Louis Blues 5-2 win, Jordan Kyrou registered his third three-point game of the season. And he wasn’t even the best player on his line. Captain Ryan O’Reilly was plus-4. Linemate David Perron also had four points, giving him 12 points for third-most on the team. In all, the line produced 11 points on the night. With the Blues playing in an insane nine overtime games this season, the scoring...

A One Time Shot For The North Division

from Damien Cox at The Toronto Star, Almost certainly, this will be the only time we’ll see this kind of format — barring another pandemic, of course. The NHL didn’t put a team in Seattle to leave that franchise without a natural rival in Vancouver just up the highway, one of many reasons why it seems almost certain this all-Canadian division is a one-time thing. Finally, imagine the anticipation when the North winner heads south to face the American teams. There’s already plenty of d...
