Chicago Blackhawks And Arizona Coyotes Still Without A Win This Season

from Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times, The Blackhawks are playing like a hockey team without belief. They’re still saying all the right things, at least when it comes to their on-ice performance. But in a 6-3 loss to the Hurricanes on Friday that extended the Hawks’ season-opening losing streak, they simply didn’t seem confident enough to turn the tide when things started going badly. “Eight games in and we don’t have a win — it’s terrible,” Brandon Hagel said. “Early on, it’s li...

‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ Embarks on a Dull Spice Recovery Mission in the Filler Episode “Infested”

Filler can be a word that’s flung around carelessly. It can be misapplied to episodes in a series that aren’t meant to propel the narrative forward, but simply breathe in the character dynamics. Sometimes filler isn’t literally filler, but a method to load emotional investment and simmer the stakes. Filler can be viewed as technique rather than flaw. However, while not gratingly bad, “Infested” (directed by Saul Ruiz and written by Amanda Rose Muñoz) wears the worst elements of filler. It’s a s...

Hulk: Where Monsters Dwell – review

Director: Mitch Schauer Release date: 2016 Contains spoilers The marvel (and DC are the same, to be fair) machine rumbles on with another franchise tie-in, in the form of an (almost) feature length cartoon. Interestingly, however, this one concentrated on Hulk (Fred Tatasciore) – though it was as much a Dr Strange (Liam O'Brien) vehicle. Indeed, after introducing us to some trick-or-treaters who knock on his sanctum door, it starts with Dr Strange battling an eldritch horror. Once he has contai...

Super Bowl week: The annual guide

The Patriots have won Super Bowls in New Orleans, Houston (twice), Jacksonville and Glendale, Ariz. They have won them by three, three, three, four and six points. Their Super Bowl point differential is minus-31, thanks to the Packers and Bears. That was before Bill Belichick, when football time began in New England. Pittsburgh has won six Super Bowls but no individual coach or quarterback has even won five. And the Patriots are doing this on a flat NFL landscape. Of the NFL’s 12 playoff teams t...

From Australia to DC, Nathan Walker Closing in on NHL

At the age of two, Nathan Walker and his family moved from the United Kingdom to live in Sydney, Australia. Though the nation has just 30 ice rinks, this was where Walker found his love and passion for hockey, through watching his older brother play and seeing the 1992 movie, “The Mighty Ducks.” He has come a long way since then. After starting hockey at the age of six, and after seeing his game reach new heights, he begged his parents to let him move to another country so he could continue his ...

Can Vrana Earn a Permanent Spot in Washington?

Jakub Vrana is perhaps the Washington Capitals’ top forward prospect, but he hasn’t been able to fully adjust to the NHL level and become a permanent fixture in the lineup. That could change this season. The former 13th overall pick has taken the time to develop and transition to the North American game in three years with the AHL’s Hershey Bears, and with roster spots up for grabs this season, as well as an opening on the top-six left wing, the 21-year-old appears ready to make the jump and ear...

Capitals’ Nathan Walker Ready for Historic NHL Jump

The Washington Capitals will be relying on their youth to step up and fill the voids on the roster, especially as they try to cope with key departures. Not only did they lose a wealth of defensemen, but the Capitals also lost some of their key wingers. Justin Williams and Daniel Winnik left through free agency, but the biggest loss to the forward lines came when Washington traded Marcus Johansson to New Jersey to free up cap space. Coming into the 2017-18 season, Washington’s four lines are expe...

Twitter had a field day following Vardy’s penalty dive

Caught on camera Twitter users had a lot of fun during England‘s first half against Germany, following Jamie Vardy‘s dive in the German box. The national side looked decent in the first half and Vardy looked threatening but as he went through, the Leicester forward took the chance to tumble over. Unfortunately for him and much to the amusement of social media, the contact from the goalkeeper didn’t come and it wasn’t pretty. Taking a tumble, the Englishman had clearly dived and probably could h...

The Capitals' opening day roster is taking shape after the team announced it released veteran center Derek Roy from his professional tryout contract and cut goaltender Justin Peters, defensemen Aaron Ness and Ryan Stanton and forward Liam O'Brien.
