Islanders’ Cizikas Enjoying a Career Season

One of the most important things any hockey team can have is depth. Even if you field elite players on your first two lines, a team is only as good as its weakest link.

Andreas Athanasiou At Center

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News, When it comes to the experiment of playing Andreas Athanasiou at center, coach Jeff Blashill was direct in his analysis. “Some nights I’ve liked it, some nights not,” Blashill said after Saturday’s 2-1 Red Wings victory over the New York Islanders. Athanasiou scored both Wings goals, did everything defensively the Wings would want, and received a huge passing grade playing center. “He was excellent,” Blashill said. The two goals gave At...

Phil Housley’s Seat Is Red Hot

The Buffalo Sabres’ post-game answers have become as cliché as they get. The excuses flow faster than outlet passes from their zone. The blank stares match their scoreboard total. There’s talk about adding jam to their game. Competing. Digging deeper. It’s a broken record. “I don’t know what else to do. I don’t know what to say,” said a stymied Kyle Okposo after the Sabres dropped their sixth straight game, 5-0 to the Pittsburgh Penguins.  The Sabres are 0-5-1 in their last six, 7-17-3 in t...

What’s Wrong with Kyle Turris?

Since the Nashville Predators acquired Kyle Turris in a Nov. 2017 trade, the move has been scrutinized in the year-plus since because he has struggled to stay healthy and hasn’t lived up to expectations when on the ice. With only 20 goals and 64 points in 111 regular-season games and three points in 13 playoff games as a Predator, he has been a letdown.
