Predators Handle Penguins – Rinne Stops 42

PITTSBURGH — Pekka Rinne stopped 42 shots to lead the Nashville Predators to a 3-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday night. Rinne was 63 seconds from his fifth shutout of the season when Nick Bjugstad scored for Pittsburgh. It was the second game in eight days between the teams and a rematch of the 2017 Stanley Cup Final, won by Pittsburgh in six games. Viktor Arvidsson’s 32nd goal of the season – a power-play goal – set a career high and also was the 100th of his NHL caree...

These San Fernando Valley girls topped their competition in Boy Scout survival skills contest

For years, twin sisters Fiona and Lauren Quick heard stories from the neighborhood Boy Scouts about really cool camping trips, crazy outdoor adventures and catching and cooking a rattlesnake. The girls wanted in, but Boy Scouts was only for boys. That all changed this year when the nationwide organization welcomed the opposite sex. The next step for the Sunland home-schooled 15-year-olds was inevitable. Their chance had arrived. They, like thousands of girls across the country, joined Scouts BSA...

Can the Penguins Rely on Murray Long-Term?

Since breaking into the NHL with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2015-16 and leading them to their fourth Stanley Cup championship, in the absence of Marc-Andre Fleury, Matt Murray has been both praised and ridiculed. Most of the praise is deserved – how many NHL players can say they hoisted their second Stanley Cup in their rookie season? – and much of the ridicule stems from the fact that Murray is not Fleury, and approaches the game in his own way, different than what modern-day fans have grown to...

Chicago Blackhawks Aren’t Dead Yet

Now don’t get me wrong. It’s still highly unlikely these Chicago Blackhawks make the playoffs this season. But they had a good week, earning themselves four more points with wins over the Buffalo Sabres and the Dallas Stars. Their current 67 points has them seven points out of the final wild card spot. With 14 games to go and numerous head-to-head matchups with the same teams fighting for that final spot, anything is possible. They just keep sucking us back in, don’t they? But isn’t that what we...

Flames’ Goaltending Still in Question as Playoffs Draw Near

For the Calgary Flames, it seemed like the issue was put to bed ages ago. Not only was netminder Mike Smith finally hitting his stride, but newbie goalie David Rittich also looked to be coming into form. In many respects, the Flames appeared to have successfully found a cure to their longstanding netminding vulnerabilities, with two strong goalies to lean upon. However, due to unsettling recent developments, that pesky old question has come to the surface once again: does Calgary have a goaltend...

One for the Ages: Ray Whitney’s 2011-12 NHL Season

There is something to say for longevity. In professional sports, longevity typically means one thing more than any other – it means relevancy. A player needs to be good enough at his/her craft, willing to adapt and adjust over the years, keep healthy, and be relevant to their sport and to their team in order to compete for a considerable length of time. Winger Ray Whitney certainly possessed relevancy throughout his entire NHL career. The Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta native played 22 seasons in th...

Canucks’ Gaudette Deserves Bigger Role

The last time Vancouver Canucks’ centre Jay Beagle was on the ice for a goal for was 15 games ago: Feb. 2 in a 5-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche. In the 14 games since, not only has Beagle been on the ice for zero goals for at five-on-five (and eight goals against), but he’s been on the ice for nearly twice as many five-on-five scoring chances against as scoring chances for — 41 for and 73 against. That 35.76 percent figure is the worst on the Canucks and the 11th worst in the NHL for forwards...

Whicker: Only bright spot for Ducks is glare from Chicago’s stars

ANAHEIM — The Ducks moved one game closer Wednesday night to getting the type of player who beat them Wednesday night. Their loss to Chicago improved their meager chances of getting a turnkey star in the 2019 draft. That’s not what they planned, of course, especially since they turned a 3-2 lead into a 4-3 defeat. The probabilities of actually being in position to draft Michigan’s Jack Hughes or Finland’s Kaapo Kakko aren’t high enough to justify a four-game losing streak, or scrape the mold off...

What’s The Story Behind The $125,000 Paul Manafort Lied To Mueller About?

It’s one of the stranger episodes in Paul Manafort’s bizarre journey from Trump campaign chairman to the inside of a jail cell. Even the special counsel seems unsure what to make of a $125,000 payment that went towards paying down a debt of Manafort’s in the summer of 2017, while he was under investigation. The payment went to reduce a debt that Manafort owed to an unnamed law firm, prosecutors say, and came at a crucial time in the investigation into Trump’s former campaign chair. Made in Ju...
