Flyers’ Success in Metro Division Bodes Well For Playoff Push

from Mike Sielski of the Philadelphia Inquirer, By winning the game in regulation, the Islanders picked up two points and, more importantly, kept the Flyers from picking up any. That might not sound like much, but in the NHL, it’s everything — or, at least, teams treat it like it’s everything. The Islanders now have 72 points this season and are in third place in the Metropolitan Division. The Flyers have 69 points, are in fifth place in the Metropolitan, and are clinging to the secon...

Blackhawks’ Kane Enjoys 8th All-Star Appearance

Amidst another rather dismal season for the Chicago Blackhawks, Patrick Kane was the team’s lone representative at this year’s NHL All-Star weekend.

Even at 30 years of age, Kane is still at the top of his game and one of the best players in the league. And he’s been consistent throughout his 12-season career. This was Kane’s eighth All-Star appearance, which was the most of any other players p...

Rangers’ Next Trade: When and for Whom?

The New York Rangers are at an interesting point this far into the 2018-19 season. Their focus has been on a rebuild, tearing down the walls of an older team whose Stanley Cup window had closed and replacing with newer, fresher assets that will hopefully work out and stick around for a while. At the same time, November showed a glimmer — however so slightly — of hope that maybe the rebuild, while still a work in progress, can have its dividends pay out sooner and last longer. After an Octo...

Rangers’ New Faces After 2 Months of Play

The narrative surrounding the 2018-19 New York Rangers was, and primarily still is, the major youth movement. It wasn’t supposed to be about playoff hopes, or winning games or achieving points in as many games as possible. What Rangers brass and fans were going to hone in on this year was player development and the continued building of the youth into a strong, stable core for the future. That focus is still there but the young team seems to have bloomed early with some surprising, succ...
