Devils Beat Rangers in OT posted by Richard Kagan

New Jersey beat the NY Rangers in game 6 in OT to oust the Rangers from the Eastern Conference Finals.  I live in NY and follow hockey and admit I was rooting for the Devils to prevail 3-2.  They did when rookie Adam Henrique scored early in OT to send New Jersey in the Finals, the fourth with Martin Brodeur as goalie.  Brodeur is on his way to the Hall of Fame when his career ends, and it is fitting that he reaches the Finals to try to go out on top. 

Offensively, the Rangers are challenged.  They have a great goalie in Henrik Lunqvist, who literally, carries this team on his back, every game.  The Rangers just don't have the firepower.  You can't win the Cup when you score 2-3 goals a game.  It's just not going to happen.  You have to put the puck in the net and give your goalie a night off, so to speak.  Let the wingers or centers be accountable.  NY had a great run.  The Devils are the better team.

Indoor LaCross Riot posted by Richard Kagan

I gotta tell you, I saw a video of a LaCross game brawl that got out of control.  The fight worsened when one team left their bench and raced onto the playing surface.  This was indoor LaCross.  I don't know what level of teams were competing.  It looked like high school or semi-pro.  But what really got me was this act of crazy behavior was scored to hard rock music!  Oh, let's look at athletes gone wild and rock out of some badass guitar.  I'll tell you what has gotten out of control, is the packaging of this violent, unsportsmanlike brawl gone bad.  It ssems like hey, you know the video "Girls gone Wild", well, let's see some guys gone wild.  Glorifying fights of this nature doesn't diminish it, it gives it a license to continue unabated.  I saw the officials who were totally overwhelmed.  How are you going to stop 20 guys from hitting each other?  Get on the PA system.  I turned off the video because I had enough.  I didn't want to hear this wierd scene and listen to music.  Give it a rest.  Next thing you know they'll be selling tickets to see the brawl go out of control.  Nobody wins when that happens.Continue reading "Indoor LaCross Riot"

Kings vs. Rangers? posted by Richard Kagan

It is pretty certain that LA will come out of the Western Conference playoffs.  What remains much more in doubt is the Rangers-Devils series.  NY has a 1-0 lead in the best of 7.  But this series is by no means over.  The Rangers play almost the oppositie of LA.  They grind it out, slow down the game, and let their goalie become the anchor of defense.  A goal or two is usually all the Rangers need to win a game.  That pattern may remain in the Eastern Finals, but it will be sorely tested if NY plays the LA Kings. 

The sleeping giant, that is the LA Kings, has woke up with a vengence.  The Rangers play like the the little engine that could.  It huffs and puffs its way toward the finish line.

'Hawks Force Game 6 on West Madison posted by Richard Kagan

Jonathan Toews' goal early in OT give the Hawks a big win in Game 5 againt the pesky Phoenix Coyotes.  Now the first round series heads to what will be a loud United Center.  The Hawks fans will be out in full force and throw in a few Hall of Famers watching in the VIP boxes.  One thing for sure is Raffi Torres won't be on the ice. He has been effectively removed from the Series when the NHL suspended him for 25 games, a stiff penalty.  Let's hope it sends the message and let's hope that Marian Hossa is on the road back to a healthy recovery from that cheap shot.  The Big stars need to continue to play big and that includes Patrick Sharp, Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook.  It would also help if Patrick Kane got on the scoreboard.  The Hawks also need a good game from Dave Bolland and Marcus Kruger.  If they can get contributions from them, they have a good chance to head back to Phoenix for a day in the sun and game 7.Continue reading "'Hawks Force Game 6 on West Madison"

'Hawks on Brink in Phoenix posted by Richard Kagan

As a long-time Blackhawks fan from the days of Eric Nesterenko, Pierre Pilote, and Pat Stapeton, Bobby and Dennis Hull, and Stan Mikita, I am following their playoff series closely.  They trail 1-0 going into the 3rd frame in the pivotal fifth game.  The Hawks trail 3-1 in games and if the Coyotes win, it will be the first time they will advance beyond the first round in Franchise history.  This is great news for those fans, decked out in white in the stands out there.  The Hawks have underperformed.  They are getting outplayed by a feisty, determined team.  This team does nnot have the firepower or the superstarrs that Chicago has.  They do have an outstanding goalie in Mike Smith.  Maybe, that's what you need in late April.  It doesn't matter if you win 2-0, or 2-1, as long as you win and advance.  And, it looks like Phoenix is about to do just that.  I wouldn't be suprised if the Hawks tie this game up late, and go into another OT, only to lose.  This has been a close series, only because the Coyotes don't have the big guns as Chicago does.  But coach Dave Tippet's plan is working to a near perfect scenario.  The Kane, Toews line has been silenced.  When your star players can't score a goal, that's a recipe for an early exit.  Marian Hossa is out with a concussion.  But he was not scoring when he got wharcked by Raffi Torres. He had 77 points in the regular season.   I think a loss of Hossa matched up vs. Torres' suspension is a win for Coyotes. &nContinue reading "'Hawks on Brink in Phoenix"


Getting Air Hockey Tables posted by NHL Fan

Opt for the variety. Air hockey tables come in three basic kinds: table best air hockey, which implies the air hockey game is placed on best of an currently present table; convertible tables, which suggests it might be converted into a ping-pong, pool or other variety of game table; and standard, which can be a stand-alone air hockey table. Some tables are designed for outside use or give multiplayer options. Feel about your budget and wherever you are going to be playing the game, and then decide which style of table will very best suit your predicament.

Opt for the size. Air hockey tables can differ broadly in size inside every sort. Stand-alone tables, by way of example, are often made for children and have significantly shorter legs and length. Table leading air hockey games are also generally developed for children's perform. Even convertible tables can selection widely in size. Just as some are intended for smaller little ones, others are created for taller adults, a few of whom might come across it unpleasant to bend far above to perform air hockey. In the event the air hockey table will be to get a family of tall teenagers, for instance, you'll choose to select a single that has lengthy legs and will accommodate the height with the players. Finally, be certain the table will match while in the area you have got allotted for it. Measure the room, then look in the measurements of the table for making positive it'll be an ideal match.

Pick out the attributes. All sorts of air hockey tables include selections and functions for making the game far more enjoyable. Some have electronic scoreboards, although others are manual. Some have flashing lights and sounds that activate whenever a aim is scored. Several air hockey tables come with additional equipment, like spare pucks, but some don't.

Flyers obtain Pavel Kubina Flyers obtain Pavel Kubina posted by NHL Fan

The Tampa Bay Lightning have traded defenseman Pavel Kubina to the Philadelphia Flyers for a pair of draft picks, a source close to the team said on Saturday.

Based on the source, the Flyers traded a conditional second round choose they had originally acquired from Florida inside a trade for Kris Versteeg, and also a fourth-rounder in 2013 to land the veteran defenseman.

The Panthers hold the
solution on whether the second round choose is often applied this year or in 2013.

Kubina is slated
to be an unrestricted free agent July 1.

Tampa Bay
general manager Steve Yzerman announced on Thursday that the team was planning on trading the veteran defenseman and would hold him out with the lineup while attempting to make a deal.

Kubina, who
has a limited no-trade clause, was asked to provide the team using a list of five teams he was willing to be traded to, Kubina's agent Peter Svoboda told on Thursday night.

The Lightning traded Dominic Moore to San Jose on Thursday. Yzerman told two weeks ago that he would
determine his plan for the trade deadline according to where his team was inside the standings within the subsequent 7-10 days. As of Saturday morning, Tampa Bay was in 12th placeContinue reading "Flyers obtain Pavel Kubina Flyers ..."

Giroux Returning to Lineup posted by Jeff Ponder

Claude Giroux is proving that concussions do not have a set timetable for return.  For some players, problems with concussions have spanned throughout multiple seasons.

Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins has missed 68 games – and counting – with a concussion.  David Perron of the St. Louis Blues recently missed 97 games with a concussion issue.  It seems that Giroux will miss just four games.

Reports suggest that Giroux will be back in the lineup tonight in Dallas.

Giroux has been sidelined since December 10 after colliding with teammate Wayne Simmonds.  When Giroux missed his first game, he was the league’s leading scorer with 39 points.  Currently, he is tied for first with Evgeni Malkin (Pittsburgh), Phil Kessel (Toronto) and Henrik Sedin (Vancouver).

During practice Tuesday morning, Giroux rejoined his linemates, Jaromir Jagr and Scott Hartnell, while also spending time on the first power-play unit.  It was Giroux’s third straight day of practice.

In an interview with, Giroux stated that he “felt good.”

The timing of Giroux’s return could not have come at a better time.  One week ago today, Flyers captain Chris Pronger was informed that he would be sidelined for the rest of the season with severe post-concussion syndrome.

Sharks open with new vibe after playoff collapse (Yahoo Sports)

A tumultuous offseason that featured a rehash of a historic playoff collapse, talk of rebuilding and questions about the leadership on and off the ice has mercifully come to an end for the San Jose Sharks. The Sharks returned to practice Friday for the opening of training camp, looking to put that playoff loss to Los Angeles in the past and build a new kind of team even if it contains most of the same players. After becoming just the fourth NHL team to lose a best-of-seven series after winning the first three games, the Sharks entered a new phase with general manager Doug Wilson talking about rebuilding and calling the franchise a ''tomorrow'' team after nearly a decade of being a perennial Stanley Cup contender. ''That's Doug's opinion,'' forward Joe Thornton said. [read full article]

Stars' Peverley working out but not back on ice (Yahoo Sports)

Dallas Stars forward Rich Peverley is doing off-ice workouts but still is unable to skate with the team six months after an irregular heartbeat led to him collapsing on the bench during a game. General manager Jim Nill says doctors will continue to monitor Peverley, who was with the team Friday for the start of training camp. Nill said Peverley has improved but still needs clearance from other doctors before he can take the next step and get back on the ice. Peverley's irregular heartbeat was diagnosed during training camp last year. [read full article]
