Darnell Nurse Catching Unfair Criticism in Edmonton

That Darnell Nurse needs defending after a game in which an injury-depleted Edmonton Oilers team walked away with a point against the best team in the NHL seems insane, yet here we are. In a game few expected the Oilers to win, Edmonton took the Boston Bruins to overtime, losing the game but still earning a much-needed point in a tight Pacific Conference race. Edmonton maintained pace after the Vancouver Canucks were also only able to salvage a single point, and the Oilers still sit atop the...

Golden Knights 3-for-3 On Critical Homestand

With three wins in a row, in three different ways, the Vegas Golden Knights are rounding into the team head coach Pete DeBoer needs them to be for the stretch run. The Golden Knights have defeated the past two Stanley Cup champions and one of the stingiest defensive teams in the league to start this ultra-critical, five-game homestand.

Ducks’ Ondrej Kase practices, but it’s unclear when he’ll play again

IRVINE — Right wing Ondrej Kase skated onto the ice wearing a red no-contact jersey for Thursday’s practice at Great Park Ice, joining his teammates for the first time since he was forced from an overtime loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Feb. 7 because of a hit to the head. Kase later said he felt good and was eager to return to the Ducks’ lineup soon. He couldn’t say when, though. He also didn’t discuss his ailment in detail after consulting with a member of the Ducks’ media relations staff b...

The 2019-20 NHL trade deadline is right around the corner, and, with the Arizona Coyotes’ playoff hopes being very much up in the air at the current point in time, general manager John Chayka may be considering adding to his roster this year after a relatively quiet deadline in 2019.

Midwest, Northeast to feel like spring again, after winter's brief visit

The cold weather settling into the Midwest and Northeast this week would normally go unnoticed by the second half of February, but amid this winter's unusually mild weather, it stands out and still commands some respect for those who must work or spend time walking outdoors for any length of time.The leading edge of Arctic air produced snow squalls, gusty winds and blowing snow in the Montreal area on Wednesday morning, which were a factor in a fatal 200-vehicle pileup. Squalls associated wi...

Heros

 Heros  big and small, young and old.      not with capes nor with superpowers   Heroes whose big hearts surround like white oak tree roots, and actions that create Pacific coast waves  that cover every inch of fear into calm. Heros that hold us up to the light where genuine goodness runs as thick as honey with    golden flickers that pave a path ahead.            [Author: French la Vie]

Rain, flood and repeat likely to be the weather mantra in the South this spring

The pattern that has been unleashing excessive rainfall and reoccurring flooding is predicted to continue across the flood-weary southern United States through the spring -- and following a soaker during the middle of this week, another rainstorm is expected to roll into the region early next week.The storm this week will trigger rain across much of the Interstate 10 and 20 corridors into Thursday, and enough cold air will be in place farther north for winter to pay a visit with snow predicted i...

2020 NHL Trade Deadline: Fisher’s Big Board of Bait

It is a sellers’ market and the prices are steep. That is evident, based on the deals to date. Teams wanting to upgrade ahead of Monday’s NHL trade deadline are going to pay a premium, especially for players with term. See Blake Coleman. Even the rentals — from top-six wingers like Tyler Toffoli to bottom-pairing defenders like Marco Scandella — are fetching significant (and surprising) returns. Nobody is coming cheap.

LA makes it illegal to rent wild animals to parties for entertainment

The practice of supplying wild animals to house parties and other private events is set to become illegal, after the Los Angeles City Council approved a ban, Tuesday, Feb. 18, on using exotic and potentially dangerous animals for entertainment purposes. Circuses and abusive animal-training tactics have been banned in Los Angeles, but some companies that train or rent out animals were allowed to supply them to private events — such as a Hollywood Hills party that caught a councilman’s attention b...

Easter Island – One of the Most Spiritual Places on Earth

For years, friends have raved that Easter Island is the most spiritual place they have ever visited. This speck of land in the eastern Pacific, known to locals as Rapa Nui, had been on my wish list for years. Since childhood I had read about the Moai, enormous statues the indigenous people carved from volcanic tuff and raised on platforms near the shoreline. Explorers and visitors alike have always been intrigued by the mystery of Easter Island. Where did the first inhabitants come from? When di...

Flames Need Defensive Help Before Trade Deadline

Heading into February, the Calgary Flames were once again displaying a need for a top-six winger. Additional defensive depth was a secondary concern, but it has remained on the radar as the NHL Trade Deadline approached.

Canucks’ Markstrom Making a Case for Vezina and Hart Consideration

Fresh off arguably the best goaltending performance of this year, it has become impossible to ignore the season that Jacob Markstrom is having. Although, many are still are.

Ducks, left wing Nicolas Deslauriers find comfort zone with 2-year extension

CALGARY, Alberta — Nicolas Deslauriers arrived at the Ducks’ training camp back in September determined to prove his value to his new team. He wanted to show there was still a place in today’s NHL for a player who can play a physical game and throw a punch or two when it was required. He had a reputation as a fearless player over 317 games in the league with the Buffalo Sabres and the Montreal Canadiens. The Ducks wanted to maintain a physical presence in their lineup even as they adapted to a f...
