Hawks win fifth longest overtime game in cup history 4-3.

I can say without a doubt, that was just about the most incredible/nerve wracking game I have ever watched. Though I thought the Hawks were able to do exactly what they wanted to, I sort of felt the same way for the Bruins and felt that the Hawks kinda stole one. This is not to... Read more »

A Tim Terrific Stanley Cup Final with cheers and tears, rookies and retirements, shutouts and shorties, handshakes and violence.

Well, there you have it folks. The Stanley Cup no longer resides in Chicago and I must say that it was enjoyable watching it find a new home for the year to come. There is a lot to say after this one, so many areas to focus on. Thomas’ performance is a big one, while... Read more »

Ponderings, Previews & Premonitions: Game 7 between the Bruins and Canucks.

I really want to hold back from saying who wins. I have a belief in karma and how it came back to haunt Luongo last night, I have a gut feeling and a team I side with more than the other, and then I have the past to look upon. The pattern that has emerged... Read more »

And that is how you change the momentum: The Bruins use home-ice to advance on the Canucks.

The big question going into last night’s game for me, was this: will Luongo continue his past patterns and allow the Bruins to take the momentum? History has a way of repeating itself, and in this case it sure as hell did. I find it interesting that while I watch, or when I reflect on... Read more »

The Canucks are 2 wins away from taking Lord Stanley's Cup to Vancouver.

With another late win on Saturday night, the Canucks drew within 2 more of making good on their projected confidence. 2 more wins and Vancouver erupts into a tizzy, possibly destroying the whole west coast of Canada and even taking a bit of Washington and Alaska during the celebration. Our good friend Fourfeather probably has... Read more »

The Bruins prove difficult but beatable in Vancouver.

Preface: I had a hockey game late last night and missed the final 7 minutes of the 3rd period, apparently the most important, from a goals perspective anyway. Boston did exactly what they were not supposed to do and played a lot of special team’s hockey. Magically, they looked fairly decent while on the power-play... Read more »

Stanley Cup Preview: It has been a long wait for the Bruins and Canucks.

This might just happen to be Vancouver’s year. For all of the talent on their roster, the hockey gods have helped them along with a few breaks to get them where they are. But, it happens to be the year of Tim Thomas, and you can take that to the bank. It is so much... Read more »

Canucks win the West: A frustrated Shark's team goes home earlier than anticipated.

It is damn hard to lose a game when you out-shot your opponent by 22 shots, but the San Jose Sharks did just that last night. The Sharks dominated in almost every category last night with the exception of goals and you could also say bounces and those count more. When leading the game by... Read more »

Like a swift punch in the face the Hawks lose in Boston

The Hawks had to give more last night than they should have had to given the way they started the game. Outplaying Detroit, they let the game get into OT. As a result, a tired Hawks team took the ice tonight. Not showing yet in the early minutes, although Boston did have the better of... Read more »
