Lundqvist snubs Sens with 21 saves in first (Video)

The Ottawa Senators generated chance after chance in a busy opening frame of Game 1, generating a 21-12 shot differential against the New York Rangers.

Plenty of seats available for tonight’s game in Ottawa

The Ottawa Senators say they’re still expecting a full house, but Ticketmaster’s website shows plenty of available seats for tonight’s second-round opener with the New York Rangers. The Senators sold out all three games in the opening round of the playoffs against Boston. Attendance has been an issue in Ottawa — or, more specifically, suburban Kanata — all season, to the point owner Eugene Melnyk expressed great frustration with the lack of sellouts at Canadian Tire Centre....

Sweeney shares offseason plans for Bruins

The Boston Bruins had a relatively successful season, getting back to the playoffs after narrowly missing them the past two years. Sweeney listed the “middle of the [forward] lineup, transition-minded defensemen and the backup goaltender position” as places he had in mind for offseason upgrades. More specifically on Sweeney’s to-do list: a left wing to be paired with David Krejci, a revamping of a third line that underachieved far too often and another top-four defenseman... Read more

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) The Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins arrive at their latest showdown looking very much like they did a year ago. The Capitals added center Lars Eller and defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk as a direct response to losing their second-round series last season, hoping the depth will help against the defending Stanley Cup champions.

Karl Alzner is not ready to return form injury as the second round begins

When the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins met in the second round of the playoffs last year, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin were held to only four combined points. That should be good enough to win, and yet it wasn’t for the Caps who had no answer for Pittsburgh’s scoring depth. This year, Washington expects things to be different. Why? Because of Lars Eller. The Caps will feature other new faces as well including Brett... Read more

On April 20, our model’s record was perfect: The Penguins clinched their series in five games and the Ducks and Predators had won in sweeps. Not only were we one of the very few to pick the Preds over the mighty Blackhawks, but our seemingly insane prediction that the Maple Leafs would take the series over the Presidents’ Trophy winning Capitals in a...

Assessing Montreal’s offence: Quantifying the effects of The Blender

Since the end of the season, a lot of talk has centred around Alex Galchenyuk's step back this campaign. In a year marred by injuries and inconsistency, the 23-year-old forward has been both a lightning rod of criticism and a beacon of hope. I first wanted to look at the stages of Galchenyuk's development and how Michel Therrien's particular coaching hallmarks had impacted Galchenyuk's performance relative to others in the American's age cohort. As I... Read more

Why having two starting goalies just does not work

The two-starting-goalie system has been implemented by a handful of NHL teams in recent seasons, and quite frankly, for the most part, it has not worked out well at all. You saw what happened in Detroit between Jimmy Howard and Petr Mrazek; on the Island, where a 3-way goaltending rotation was terrible; in Florida, where Roberto Luongo and James Reimer were not able to keep their team (which, by the way, had three solid scoring...
