Has this ever happened before? Nope.

The last five teams alive are also the last five cup winners: 2008 – Detroit Red Wings 2009 – Pittsburgh Penguins 2010 – Chicago Blackhawks 2011 – Boston Bruins 2012 – Los Angeles Kings And if the Blackhawks win tonight, it will be the last four cup-winners in the Conference Finals. Also, it guarantees that…

Sunday’s Standings in Points Blown

In our new Western Sub-Conference, we have ten teams fighting for 5 playoff spots. SJS and CHI have been expelled for being too good, EDM and CBJ for being too bad and COL is out for the moment because they’re the first seed in the NW. In other words, we’re only going to deal with…

Why Barry Trotz is Really Frank Zappa

The Canucks and arena staff are still searching for the fan who brought a laser pointer to the game Saturday against the Calgary Flames. A green beam of light was occasionally flashed into the helmet of Flames goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff, and it had Calgary head coach Brent Sutter fuming after his team’s 3-2 shootout victory.…

Wednesday’s Standings in Points Blown

The Good: Stars lose, Flames lose, Avs lose, Blues half-lose (OT). The Bad: Sharks win, three-point game. Colorado drops below the Kings for the first time in awhile. Five points separate the 3rd from 9th seed. With the Flames’ loss, Kings are now 2 points from 3rd, 3 points from 9th — 10 points from…

From The Calgary Sun: Canada a crunchin’ bunch

Team Canada has plenty of tournament time to prove they can light the lamp. Last night’s exhibition tilt against Team Finland at the Saddledome was all about sending a message with their shoulders — and maybe the occasional elbow, too. The result was a bunch of battle-weary Finns not keen on carrying the puck any…
