Stanley Cup Preview

Well folks its finally here. Starting on Monday May 29th, the Cup finals will be coming to us live from Pittsburgh. The Pens are 4 wins away from repeating and becoming the first team to do so since the Red Wings of 1997 and 1998. One the other side, the Preds have been riding a wave of confidence and have defeated the Hawks (in spectacular fashion 4-0), the Blues (4-2), and the Ducks (4-2). This is setting up to be a potentially fast, skilled, and highlight reel filled cup final which I personally, am excited for. Let’s take a...

Pens vs Caps Series Preview

This is probably the most anticipated second round match up this year in the Stanley Cup playoffs. A rematch from last year saw the Pens win the series 4-2. Will the Pens be able to duplicate their success, or will the Caps finally get over the second round hump and move on to a Eastern Conference Final?   Home Ice Advantage: Tie I’d say this is a draw. Both buildings are extremely hard to play in for visiting teams. The fans get into the game before it starts and they don’t really quite down ever through out the game....

Are the Columbus Blue Jackets For Real?

The Columbus Blue Jackets are by far the biggest surprise this year in the NHL. No one saw this coming, not a soul. Sure the usual top dogs are there: Chicago Blackhawks, reigning Cup champs Pittsburgh Penguins, Montreal Canadiens, and a few others. However, the Blue Jackets are a total surprise, and their current 16 game win streak, and even bigger surprise. However, when you watch them play and break down the stats, you start to realize how good they really are. It starts with a very lethal power play, stellar goaltending, and a great team culture. When you...

Why are the Colorado Avalanche So Awful?

Despite the Avs recent win over the Hawks (come on guys really?) the Avs are dead last in the entire NHL with a poor record of 12-20-1. In fact they’re terrible in just about every stat. Goal differential (-39), they are 21st overall on the power play, and 20th overall on the penalty kill. This is a team that won the extremely tough Central Division back in 2013-2014. After this remarkable season, they were bounced in 7 games in round 1 of the playoffs by the Minnesota Wild. After this stunning defeat, the Avs have failed to recapture the...
