NY Rangers’ New Faces Stalling

Now in mid-January, we’re a little more than halfway through the 2018-19 NHL season. And the halfway mark of the NHL season can bring about a time of reflection and remembrance. Remember when the New York Rangers were hot in November? Harsh reality has set in, slapping the team in the face, as the Rangers are sixth in the Metropolitan Division with an 18-20-7 record with  43  points, 10  out of playoff contention. Admittedly, their play has been dreary to watch of late, as the team dropped fi...

Arvidsson, Forsberg and Subban Dazzling in Returns

The Nashville Predators have been on a roll of late with five wins in their last seven games with their only losses occurring in overtime. Before that, however, it was a different story as they lost six in a row, including four against non-playoff teams. The biggest reason for their turnaround has been a return to health, especially by key players as Viktor Arvidsson, Filip Forsberg and P.K. Subban all missed extended periods of time between November and January. Arvidsson has had two injury abs...

Avalanche at the Christmas Break: 2018 vs. 2017

Some models predict the Colorado Avalanche’s playoff chances to be around 75 percent through 37 games, others higher than 80. Regardless, it’s safe to say their 2018-19 season thus far has been quite successful. They undoubtedly have the top line in the National Hockey League in Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen, with the latter two sitting one-two in league scoring, and they are third in the NHL in goals with 129. Their power play is also among the league’s best, currently ...

Should the Bruins Have Interest in Signing Berglund?

Another day, another player on the market who could be considered a potential option for the Boston Bruins. With Patrik Berglund refusing to report to the Buffalo Sabres after what was first described as an “illness.” the team suspended him and ultimately announced Wednesday that the forward had been placed on unconditional waivers for the purpose of terminating his contract, Sabres forward Patrik Berglund has been placed on unconditional waivers with the intent to terminate his contract. There...

Division-Leading Flames Hottest in Over a Decade

Just under a third through the 2018-19 season, the Calgary Flames are one point out of first in the Western Conference with a 19-10-2 record. Early returns suggest this is the best Flames team in many years. Early this week, they were on top of the West for the first time since Jan. 5, 1993. This achievement is even more impressive when you consider Mike Smith’s struggles in net and the fact that their big-fish free-agent signing, James Neal, has been a major disappointment with just six points....

Penguins Pulpit: Pettersson, Scoring & Maatta’s Future

It’s been an interesting two weeks since the last Penguins Pulpit. After briefly falling to last in the Eastern Conference in mid-November, the team has managed a slight turnaround to get back into the playoff race. After play on Sunday night, the Penguins sit just one point out of third place in the Metropolitan Division and five points out of a Wild Card spot. While they’ve had some inconsistent showings, there’s been more good than bad over the last six games. Two weeks ago, the Penguin...

Penguins’ First Quarter: Goalies, Letang & Depth Scoring

The first quarter of the 2018-19 season is through, and it’s not one the Pittsburgh Penguins would like to replicate the rest of the way. After finishing October with a 6-2-2 record and a plus-12 goal differential, the Penguins fell into a November swoon as they’ve gone 3-6-3 with a minus-seven goal differential in 12 games; bringing their season record to 9-8-5 with a plus-five goal differential in 22 games. The Penguins’ struggles saw them fall to last place in the Eastern Conference las...

Panthers’ Blue Line Missing Its Bite

The 2018-19 season hasn’t exactly started the way the Florida Panthers had envisioned. With a 3-5-3 record through 11 games and tied for last in the league ahead of the Nov. 6 games, things haven’t worked out in Sunrise. The reasons for their slow start are littered throughout: they rank 20th or worse in goals for, shot attempts, shooting percentage, save percentage, and PDO. Individually, only two teams’ leader scorers have fewer points than Evgeni Dadonov’s 13 which lead the Panthers. It...

Coyotes Weekly: These Aren’t Your Father’s ‘Yotes

Wow. What a week it was in Glendale, Arizona – 16 total goals (including five shorthanded tallies), just three total goals against, and, most importantly, three wins in the bank. With each dominating performance that this team puts up, one thing is starting to become abundantly clear – these aren’t your father’s Arizona Coyotes. They’ve now won four straight, five of their past six, and are a threat to score whenever they have the puck in the offensive zone. Oh, and they can defend and control p...

Overreaction Theater: Ovechkin, Rielly, Hurricanes & More

This is the initial installment of what I intend to be a series of weekly articles I call ‘Overreaction Theaters.’ The idea is that I look at stats and trends, typically outliers from the norm, and make broad statements about them based on how each stat or trend projects before determining if my initial claim was an overreaction or an actual possibility. This week, I’m looking at four impressive trends, both good and bad, that have emerged in the early portions of the season. On the positive end...

Ducks Defense Causing Offense to Struggle

To start the 2018-19 NHL season, the Anaheim Ducks have accumulated nine points in six games. It’s their best start since the 2014-15 season and they lead the Pacific Division. One major problem persists, though — the Ducks are winning games in an unsustainable way. Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle has seen his team struggle to generate offense but still win games. (Norm Hall/NHLI via Getty Images) They’re the league’s worst team in Corsi-for percentage — although the number has improved — at 39...

Stempniak Stealing Bruins Roster Spot

The Bruins invited both Lee Stempniak and Daniel Winnik to training camp earlier this month with the hope that one or both would emerge as an NHL option. One could make the argument that both of these players have earned a spot in Boston. Winnik seems to be the ideal extra forward, able to play depth minutes while also sitting up top for a prolonged period without the worry of hurting his development. Stempniak, however, looks like he can be more than that. In fact, for a team that lost a lot in...

Burning Questions for the Central Division

Do you have questions about your favourite team after the puck dropped for the preseason? For teams that are already playoff-bound, the preseason doesn’t really answer questions. If you’re cheering for a bottom-feeder, the preseason suddenly becomes must-watch hockey as you try to figure out who’s making the team. Related: Burning Questions for the Atlantic Division In the Central Division, there are holes in some lineups. Let’s get one thing clear though, this is the only division in hockey whe...

Cole Helps Solidify the Avalanche Blue Line

The Colorado Avalanche acquired a surprisingly controversial contract during free agency – Ian Cole. Signed for three years at an annual average of $4.25 million, the 29-year-old left-shooting defenseman should be a solid addition to a Colorado team still developing their young defense. However, the signing raised the hackles of some of the Avalanche fan base. But should it? Ian Cole Is a Good Player Let’s get this out of the way first. Is Ian Cole another Erik Karlsson? No. But that doesn’t m...

Analyzing Boeser and Stecher’s On-Ice Success

The Vancouver Canucks should be sending the University of North Dakota some thank-you cards. It wasn’t like the university pushed Brock Boeser and Troy Stecher to sign in Vancouver, but they have run a top-notch hockey program that has pumped out a number of impact NHL players. Guys like Jonathan Toews, Zach Parise and Travis Zajac remain some of the most current NHLers to represent the school proudly. In Vancouver, two of North Dakota’s alumni hold down roster spots, with both of them playing i...

Golden Knights Luck is Running Out

One of the most incredible stories in NHL history is on the verge of finishing with a flop. The Vegas Golden Knights are down 3-1 to the Washington Capitals as they return home to face possible elimination in Game 5. It’s new territory for this band of misfits, who had only lost three games in three rounds of playoff hockey prior to the Stanley Cup Final. Even in the regular season, this kind of slump wasn’t common for the Western Conference champs. They haven’t lost three straight games in regu...

Team USA wrapped up its preliminary round action at the 2018 IIHF World Championship this morning. They will head into the elimination round with a record of 4-1-2 after a 6-2 loss to Finland, who won Group B over the United States with the victory.

Ron Hainsey Critical to Leafs’ Chances

Ron Hainsey is the only current Toronto Maple Leafs player with his name on the Stanley Cup. And, if Hainsey’s teammates wish to engrave their names on Lord Stanley’s mug, they will have to count on the wily veteran now more than ever before. In their first-round matchup of the Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Boston Bruins, sound defensive play will prove crucial to the Leafs’ potential success. Due to the Bruins’ electrifying offensive attack, Toronto’s blue line — and Hainsey, in particular —...

There were ups and downs, blockbuster trades, and incredible goaltending. While things weren’t always peachy, there was always a sense that everything would be ok, and that the Predators would come back. The playoffs begin on Wednesday and the Colorado Avalanche will find their way to Smashville. Before the first round begins, let’...

North Pacific climate patterns influence El Nino occurrences

Previous studies have investigated the relationship between ENSO and PDO but none have examined if the warm (positive) and cool (negative) phases of PDO in the North Pacific influence the frequency of ENSO events in the tropical Pacific. For the first time, scientists from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, quantitatively demonstrated that El Nino is 300 percent more (58 percent less) frequent than La Nina in positive (negative) PDO phases.

Piping Hot Panthers’ Playoff Push

Not much was expected of the Florida Panthers entering the 2017-18 National Hockey League season. After all, they were coming off an embarrassing 2016-17 campaign, had gotten rid of two of their best scorers at the expansion draft and disposed of a top-four defenseman for some seriously suspect reasons. Up until Jan. 29, the Cats appeared to be bumbling along according to these expectations, posting a record of 19-22-6, not quite bad enough to be serious contenders in the draft lottery, but nowh...

Dale Tallon’s Trade Deadline

The 2018 National Hockey League Trade Deadline has come and gone, and, it has to be said, it was much more exciting than usual. Yes, many of the deals featured a player you’ve never heard of traded for a guy you forgot existed. And yes, names perennially popular at deadline time once again found their way into a transaction (see: Vanek, Thomas). But Evander Kane? Ryan McDonagh? Rick Nash? These are bona fide stars! The second-tier of players moved was pretty impressive, too, with the likes of De...

Patient-derived organoids model treatment response of metastatic gastrointestinal cancers

Patient-derived organoids (PDOs) have recently emerged as robust preclinical models; however, their potential to predict clinical outcomes in patients has remained unclear. We report on a living biobank of PDOs from metastatic, heavily pretreated colorectal and gastroesophageal cancer patients recruited in phase 1/2 clinical trials. Phenotypic and genotypic profiling of PDOs showed a high degree of similarity to the original patient tumors. Molecular profiling of tumor organoids was matched to d...

I’d love to still play. This is kind of the first step, getting out here and seei...

Hudon Producing Despite Lack of Scoring

The transition from the AHL to the NHL has not been as seamless as once thought it would be for Montreal Canadiens rookie Charles Hudon. With four goals and 16 points in 45 games this season, scoring has not come in bunches like it did in the minors, but head coach Claude Julien believes success is inevitable for the 23-year-old. “Offensively, he’s getting chances. I’m convinced Charles Hudon will score goal in the future,” said Julien. “He’s a guy that’s able to score. Once he gets more confide...
