Chara Makes History in Game 4 Win

TORONTO — Zdeno Chara made history Wednesday night, helping the Bruins avoid falling into a deep playoff hole in the process. The Bruins captain’s shot from the point at 5:39 of the third proved to be the winning goal in Boston’s 6-4 victory over Toronto, evening their best-of-seven first-round playoff series at two games apiece. At 42 years 30 days, the big Slovak becomes the oldest defenceman in NHL history to score a winning goal in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Mark Recchi (43 years 125 da...

Senators Fans – Who Should You Cheer For?

Sadness has befallen the Ottawa Senators’ fan base again, as the Belleville Senators failed to make the AHL playoffs in the last regular season game. Now, almost all of the Senators players, signed and unsigned, are done for the summer. However, I don’t know about you, but I’m not done with hockey yet. During the last week, the Stanley Cup Playoffs have blown wide open. This is perfect for Senators fans, as you now can pick whoever you want to cheer for, granted that you are looking for ...

Mark Stone is unstoppable right now for the Golden Knights

What Mark Stone is doing for the Vegas Golden Knights through three games against the San Jose Sharks should come as no surprise. Stone has an NHL-best six goals and is tied for first on the team with eight points, already matching his career best in the postseason set during the Ottawa Senators' run to the Eastern Conference Final in 2017 in 16 fewer games. As part of Vegas' second line that was built through free agency last summer (Paul Stastny) and separate trades in September (Max...

San Jose Sharks’ Poise Comes Up Large

In the opening playoff series last season, the San Jose Sharks played an undisciplined Anaheim Ducks team and swept them in just four games. The more poised team won every game. In the playoff opener this season against the Vegas Golden Knights, the more poised team won again. Vegas and San Jose, Game 1 The Sharks outplayed the Golden Knights for the first 40 minutes, winning battles, getting high quality shots and finding the right balance between physical play and team discipline.

Not The Best Game For The Vegas Golden Knights

from David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, As the Golden Knights stumbled toward the finish line of the regular season, the common refrain was they could find their game when it mattered most. But as the postseason opened Wednesday, all the problems of the past two weeks remained. The Knights were unable to match the intensity of a San Jose squad intent on making a statement and lost 5-2 in a hostile SAP Center to open the Western Conference quarterfinals. Mark Stone n...

Sharks Beat Golden Knights With Help of Pavelski’s Chin

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Joe Pavelski took a puck off his chin to score the opening goal and the San Jose Sharks raced past the Vegas Golden Knights with a 5-2 victory Wednesday night in Game 1 of their first-round series. Brent Burns, Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Evander Kane added goals in a wild second period that featured heavy hitting, a parade to the penalty box and the high intensity expected in a series between two franchises that have become fierce rivals in just two seasons.

Golden Knights vs Sharks: Key Players

All of the remaining teams have a legitimate chance to win the Stanley Cup. Not a chance as in, “they made it, so they technically have a chance.” No, every team has a real shot to win the whole thing. Making the playoffs is the hard part. A long season of 82 hard-fought, grueling games has come and gone. We are now left with the final 16 teams, competing for Lord Stanley’s Cup. How sweet it is! Vegas Golden Knights Alex Tuch.

Senators’ Tkachuk: The Right Draft Choice?

With the fourth-overall pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, the Ottawa Senators selected Brady Tkachuk. While in most cases this pick would have been made and done with, for the Senators, it’s never that simple. While Tkachuk impressed in his rookie season, it’s impossible not to think about the numerous other options available. This draft pick is much bigger than just Tkachuk. In the trade that brought Matt Duchene to Ottawa, one of the pieces that general manager Pierre Dorion sent to the Co...

Vegas Golden Knights’ Season in Review

The Vegas Golden Knights are headed back to the playoffs for the second time in franchise history. Considering they have only played two seasons, that is a pretty good ratio. Many would say this team, on paper, is better than last season. With the additions of Max Pacioretty, Paul Stastny, and Mark Stone, they give Vegas more depth and production. But somehow, this team finished third in the Pacific Division and will start on the road against the San Jose Sharks. Here is how they got here. ...

Flames Face Uphill Battle in Tough Western Conference Playoffs

The Calgary Flames are the new players in the Western Conference playoffs, a field stacked with Stanley Cup-contending teams such as the San Jose Sharks, Nashville Predators, Winnipeg Jets and Vegas Golden Knights. It doesn’t appear to be safe to count any of the eight teams out. Predators general manager David Poile knows the NHL as well as anyone on the planet, with three-plus decades of experience leading teams. And he would not wager a dollar on this post-season . “I can’t see bet...

Kucherov Lapping the Field in Hart Trophy Race

Connor McDavid knows better than to risk making end-of-season NHL award projections. Through no fault of his own, the Edmonton Oilers captain was not included among last year’s three MVP candidates, causing a stir back home. So McDavid understandably deferred when recently asked to list his Hart Trophy front-runners this year. “After last year, I’m not commenting,” McDavid said, chuckling. “I have no idea who will win it at all.” Related: 2019 Hart Trophy Odds: Place Your Bets McDavi...

Stanley Cup Playoff Preview: Golden Knights vs Sharks

With the Calgary Flames having clinched the Pacific Division, that means the No. 2 and No. 3 seeds within the division are locked as well. The San Jose Sharks will face the Vegas Golden Knights in the first round, the second straight year the two teams will battle it out in the postseason. The Golden Knights took out the Sharks in six games last spring, with two games going into overtime. Both clubs came into that second-round series with a ton of momentum, sweeping their respective first-ro...

The Jets’ big man on the blue line is back in action, and his return couldn’t have come at a more critical moment.

Sharks’ Preparation for Golden Knights Must Begin Now

The San Jose Sharks are almost certain to play the Vegas Golden Knights in the opening round of the playoffs. This is unfortunate, as these might be the two best teams in the Western Conference, at least when both teams are mostly healthy. But it is the hand being dealt, so the Sharks must play it wisely. Playing it wisely begins now.  The Sharks v. Golden Knights History I’ll touch lightly on the history. The teams have played 13 times, and Vegas has dominated. The Sharks have won just ...

While lots of attention has gone to breakout players like Jordan Binnington and top performers who have turned their seasons around, like Jaden Schwartz and Patrick Maroon, the Blues have some secondary pe...

Golden Knights Have No Shortage of Captain Choices

Last season when the Vegas Golden Knights made it to the Stanley Cup Final without a captain, many people were wondering who would get the honor of lifting it first. Being a captain doesn’t necessarily mean you have to make a big speech before every game. It means your teammates and fans look up to you. You have to rally your team when they are in a rut and lead by example. As Vegas was an expansion team, they had no previous captain. This was an opportunity for many players to start...

In his post-game press conference following the San Jose Sharks’ loss to the Nashville Predators on March 16, head coach Peter DeBoer indicated his team was tired, saying “some of our big guys are a little fatigued.” Here’s the thing, part of a coach’s job is to manage players so they don’t get fatigued. Is it always unavoidable? No. But can such things be mitigated by the choices the coach makes? Yes.  DeBoer’s History The fatigue discussion is legitimate – and needs context. After t...
