Rangers Edge Maple Leafs in OT – Georgiev Makes 55 Saves

TORONTO — Ryan Strome scored in overtime as the New York Rangers snapped a five-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over Toronto on Saturday. Frederik Andersen had just made an amazing save on Boo Nieves on a two-on-one but the puck went to Strome who stuffed it in at 1:48.  With another stellar performance in goal until finally beaten in the third period, New York’s Alexandar Georgiev looked to have continued his mastery over the Maple Leafs. Trailing 1-0, the Leafs finally beat Geor...

Hockey Analytics & Advanced Stats Can Take out the Guesswork

Dylan Strome is tearing it up for the Chicago Blackhawks after putting up paltry numbers the last two seasons for the Arizona Coyotes, the team that drafted him third overall in 2015. Eric Staal experienced a career renaissance with the Minnesota Wild in 2016-17 and 2017-18, and this season to a lesser degree, after many thought his days of stardom were finished with the Carolina Hurricanes. Andrew Ladd and Brent Seabrook have seen their statistics take a large nosedive after receiving large con...

Wild Whip Rangers – Donato Tallies Two

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Ryan Donato scored two goals and Devan Dubnyk had 26 saves as the Minnesota Wild beat the New York Rangers 5-2 on Saturday night to stay in the thick of the playoff race. Eric Staal, Jared Spurgeon and J.T. Brown also scored for the Wild, who snapped a three-game losing streak that dropped them out of the final wild card in the Western Conference.

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. Related: Turris Trade a Year Later Now in his age-29 season and year one of a six-year, $36-million deal, he and the Predators need to figure ou...

Wild Have to Reconsider Trading Zucker

In the aftermath of the NHL trade deadline, plenty is coming out with regard to a hypothetical deal involving Minnesota Wild forward Jason Zucker that fell through. What’s become most apparent though is the Wild should be grateful it did. The Zucker Trade to Flames that Wasn’t Of course, the thought process here is that if the Wild tried to trade Zucker once they might again (even if he has a no-trade clause coming into effect soon). If they do end up going that route, the only hope would be t...

Hurricanes’ GM Waddell: “A Slow Day in ‘Canes World”

As the clock approached 3 p.m. on Monday, fans of the Carolina Hurricanes felt something familiar: nothing. Despite the anticipation leading up to the day, like most of their Trade Deadlines of late, the team was inactive. A team that arguably still has holes to fill chose to wait until the postseason to make any significant moves.

Islanders Should Be All-In at Deadline

As the NHL trade deadline approaches, the New York Islanders remain atop the tight Metropolitan Division. They own a two-point lead over the Washington Capitals for the division lead, and have one game in-hand. As a team that was expected to begin rebuilding after losing John Tavares to free agency, the Islanders have been arguably the biggest surprise in the league this season. The key to their success has been their dynamic goaltending tandem of Robin Lehner and Thomas Greiss. The Island...

Will Hurricanes’ Staal Slide in Seamlessly?

Carolina Hurricanes center Jordan Staal has missed the last 26 games due to a concussion. He was placed on injured reserve on Jan. 4. Surprisingly the team has not missed a beat going 16-6-1 since New Year’s Eve without him. Last Friday night there were 14,340 on hand to watch the Hurricanes host Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers. The Hurricanes were still sans-Staal, but inching closer to his return.

Parise Opens Up About Devils & Wild

It’s been almost seven years since Zach Parise left the New Jersey Devils for the Minnesota Wild, signing a monster 13-year, $98 million dollar deal. The fans haven’t forgotten, booing him every time he touches the puck or his name is announced. He expects it. He understands the fans loyalty to the team, and he’s totally okay with it. Following his last visit to the Prudential Center on Feb. 9 Parise even found a way to joke about it. “I was expecting it. It’s been that way ever since (I left). ...

A Possible Landing Spot For Eric Staal

from Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic, Remember that Staal’s trade deadline experience, going from Carolina to the Rangers in 2015-16, didn’t turn out to be terribly enjoyable. Just my own take but I think Staal would rather stay put in Minnesota and not re-live that experience. One of the teams that might come calling and I believe is on his ‘no’ list are the Jets, especially if they strike out on guys like Duchene and/or Stone. Now, that’s not to say Staal wouldn’t ultimately waive...

Rangers Buying Out Their Defense Could Lead to Regret

So far, the New York Rangers have been passing the “patience test” during their rebuild. No impulsive big-name free-agent signings or quick-fix trades. No rushing youngsters in the minors who aren’t ready for the NHL level. Just a steady, gradual approach to the process of properly laying a foundation for the future – one they hope will yield consistent playoff appearances and eventually, Stanley Cup contention. The next hurdle on that path will come this offseason when the front office wi...
