Coyotes Weekly: Still in the Playoff Hunt

With less than three weeks to go, and with the Arizona Coyotes still firmly entrenched in a tight race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, there’s no doubt that, over the next few weeks, every game (and point) matters. There are only nine games remaining, and only 18 more points can be gathered, giving the Coyotes a 96-point maximum for this season. Six wins in those nine games will give Arizona 90 points – would that be enough to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs? Can they ...

Oilers Season Seat Event Didn’t Help Sway Fans

The Edmonton Oilers held a season ticket seat holder breakfast event on Monday morning. By most of the accounts **, the event was appreciated. It also didn’t sway many from their decision not to renew their season seats for next year. With a number of fans looking at three percent increases on the prices of their seats from last season but the Edmonton Oilers a team that will now have to pretty much run the table in their last ten games to make the postseason, there is a strong appetite not to...

Senators Hope Veronneau Breaks College UFA Trend

The Ottawa Senators signed NCAA free agent Max Veronneau to a two-year, entry-level contract on March 12, adding to their prospect pool in the midst of their rebuild.

Devils’ Agostino Proving to Be Savvy Waiver Claim

It’s hard to find a lot of positives for a team like the New Jersey Devils, who sit at the bottom of the NHL and out of playoff contention. They also have a roster mainly composed of players who may not be around much longer. That makes trying to project things beyond this season more difficult, especially with all the team’s injuries. Through all those injuries, there’s one player who’s stood out, Kenny Agostino. He was claimed off waivers by the Devils a little more than a month ago and has fi...

Breaking Down the Maple Leafs’ Defensive Woes

About halfway through Friday night’s back-and-forth affair between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Philadelphia Flyers, TSN play-by-play man Gord Miller summed up my thoughts perfectly: “Not sure if it’s a winning recipe in the playoffs, but it’s sure fun to watch.” There were so many goals in the second period (seven, to be exact), that I’m not entirely sure what the exact score was when he said it. 5-2 Flyers, perhaps? Maybe 5-3? Regardless, the Maple Leafs overcame a three-goal deficit to win the...

Edmonton Oilers Final Run: 3 Good, 3 Bad, 3 Worse

With only twelve games left in the NHL season for the Edmonton Oilers and the team eight points back of a wild-card spot in the Western Conference, the playoffs aren’t looking very likely. Such a fate is unfortunate, since, the loss to the New Jersey Devils notwithstanding, the Oilers have looked pretty good as of late. Whatever happens with the last few games in March, there is some good and bad to take from the season and this final stretch run. What you choose to focus on as an Oilers fan is ...

The Edmonton Oilers With Another Bad Loss At Home

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, So, that’s how it ends? The Edmonton Oilers go 7-2-2 in their previous 11 to keep themselves marginally in the race for the final playoff position in the Western Conference. And then they do that? At home? Just as they appear to be coming up in the rearview mirror of the teams ahead of them, a gimme game finally comes along, and they gag on it? Gas it? Stink the joint out? Absolutely reek? And they not only lose it, they lose it 6-3 to the...

Fight: Oilers' Lucic, Devils' Gabriel engage in marathon slugfest

The scarcity also means less and less are we seeing two combatants engaging in a lengthy battle. Edmonton Oilers tough guy Milan Lucic and New Jersey Devils thorn-in-the-side Kurtis Gabriel didn't exchange pleasantries after their battle Wednesday Night Hockey — maybe, perhaps, because they were just too gassed to do so. Lucic and Gabriel went back and forth for a full minute before Lucic had enough.

5 Canucks Building Blocks for the Future

Currently, the Vancouver Canucks are skating towards a post-season without playoffs. However, after the team’s loss to the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday night, the Hockey Night in Canada panel lauded the team’s future potential – just not this season. Really, no one predicted a strong season for the Canucks. It was to be a rebuilding season, but two primary surprises lifted the Canucks in the standings, and in their fans, hope for a stronger future. The first surprise was Elias Pettersson. He...

from Wes Gilbertson at the Calgary Sun, On a night that everything seemed to go his way, this could have been Johnny Gaudreau’s biggest challenge.

Now, in a jubilant locker-room, a team staffer h...
