Flyers Turn to Vigneault to Snap Stanley Cup Drought

VOORHEES, N.J. — The Tampa Bay Lightning team that just flamed out in the first round of the playoffs is dotted with former New York Rangers who played in the 2014 Stanley Cup Final: Ryan Callahan, Ryan McDonagh, Dan Girardi, Anton Stralman, J.T. Miller all helped the Rangers to get within three wins of their first championship since 1994. Five years later, a new team and a stunning elimination. They were used to deeper runs in New York with Alain Vigneault running the show. He led the Ranger...

Unlucky Ducks Must Improve Draft Position

Wednesday’s draft lottery did not go as the Anaheim Ducks and their fans wanted. It did go largely as expected, with the Ducks having the eighth-best odds to secure the No. 1 pick or at least a top-three pick. However, instead of obtaining the No. 8 pick, they fell one spot to No. 9. That’s not even the highest pick the Ducks have had in a decade. In 2012, they drafted Hampus Lindholm No. 6 overall in a season where they finished with the same amount of points that they did this season. Now ...

NHL Rumors: Kunitz, Edler, Boeser, More

In today’s NHL rumor rundown, there are updates on Chris Kunitz in Chicago and whether or not he’ll keep playing while the Vancouver Canucks need to make a couple of important decisions on two fairly key players. Kunitz Calling it Quits? Chicago Blackhawks winger Chris Kunitz has yet to decide whether or not he wants to play another NHL, notes Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago. At his age and lack of production, retirement might make sense. Chris Kunitz has lost a step th...

Revisiting John Ferguson Jr.’s Draft – 2004

It was a dark time for the Toronto Maple Leafs and their fanbase – following the years of Pat Quinn as their general manager – the Maple Leafs future was handed to John Ferguson Jr. on Aug. 29, 2003. With the appointment, Ferguson was also handed the reins to the team’s 2004 NHL Draft strategy – a draft class that quickly turned into a disaster for the blue and white. In this piece, we’ll look at a draft that saw one of the purest goal scorers to ever play the game go first overall when th...

Jacob Markstrom Emerging as Elite Goalie for the Vancouver Canucks

VANCOUVER — Jacob Markstrom’s quiet evolution into an elite NHL goaltender for the Vancouver Canucks hasn’t surprised his teammate Alex Biega. The defenceman had already witnessed the six-foot-six netminder’s ability to stun opponents four years ago when the pair were playing together for the Utica Comets in the American Hockey League. “You could just tell — when teams came into the building, they could tell that he had the capability of robbing the game.

Longest Stanley Cup Droughts

It’s often said that the Stanley Cup is the hardest trophy to win in professional sports. Of the league’s 31 teams (and with Seattle joining in 2021-22), only 19 have won the Stanley Cup and just 13 have won multiple championships. In the modern era, it’s become tougher to win championships and build dynasties which begs the question: what are the longest active Stanley Cup droughts? Dating back to the original expansion year of the NHL, there are 12 active teams that haven’t won a Stanley Cu...

Coyotes Weekly: Fighting for Their Playoff Lives

After finishing a four-game losing streak with a 0-2-2 record, things were looking grim for the Arizona Coyotes. They had lost a three-point playoff cushion they had enjoyed just a few days earlier, and saw the Colorado Avalanche leapfrog them in the standings. However, after a huge shutout victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night at Gila River Arena, the Coyotes once again find themselves alive and well in the Western Conference playoff race, with two massive games against other ...

from Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, - Since Dec. 1, Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price has allowed two goals or fewer in 29 of his 43 appearances while posting a .926 save percentage. - Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky is on a nice run (14-7-0 with six shutouts and a 0.930 save percentage since early February) which will drive up his value as an unrestricted free agent. - While the Florida Panthers are widely speculated to be the prime suitor f...

On Friday night, the Panthers opted to give Sam Montembeault his second start of his NHL career and at the same time, welcomed James Reimer back into the healthy fold, by dressing him as his backup.  This meant that Roberto Luongo got the night off for the Panthers, which is a well-earned rest, as he was pushing pretty hard for the team down this last stretch.  The unfortunate part for the [Author: Clayton Corley]

Devils Don’t Need a Resurgent Schneider

It looks like New Jersey Devils goalie Cory Schneider has gotten his game back, just at the worst possible time. Now, no one can deny Schneider’s timing overall. His .919 save percentage points to an immensely successful career up to this point. It’s just that up until recently it looked like it might be drawing to a premature close. Two sub-par seasons in a row prior to this effectively led to him losing his No. 1 position to the since-traded Keith Kinkaid. He then won it back, however temporar...
