The Chicago Blackhawks get blanked in the tank.
I really love how every time someone is playing against Niemi you hear all about how easy it is to beat him. All you have to do is this, or this, or that. Well, not even his old team had any answers last night as Niemi was the sole reason for the Hawks being defeated.... 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.

Power Play City: The Canucks find a 3-1 lead in San Jose.

Lets talk some hockey. Playoffs, Hawks, and whatever else comes to mind.

Im falling a bit behind on the 2nd round of the playoffs. Already the Nucks and Preds have played 2 games, and the 2nd Detroit – SJ game is about to take off in a few hours. There has been some great hockey already and I might be a bit tardy with this, but here... Read more »


Since I am a huge Antti Niemi fan, and since the loss of his contract left me feeling a small hole in my heart, I figured it worthy to update everyone on his performance this year. After having a rough start which could have been expected given his situation, Niemi has turned the corner and... Read more »
