Playoff Hockey: Rangers/Senators

Admit it. Unless your job requires it, you probably haven’t all been paying attention to the entire league in the past 6 months. There are those teams you follow religiously to track their success (or failure), those you occasionally cheat on your boys for (::cough, cough:: St. Louis Blues ::cough, cough::) and those whose superstar … Continue reading

It’s Playoff Time! Bring on the Beards!

I’ve abandoned y’all yet again and for that I apologize. A great deal has happened in the hockey world in the last month and I can’t help but feel like the Hockey Gods have smiled in my favor. Going to Washington D.C. was a fantastic trip filled with plenty o’ hockey. The Flat Stanley pictures … Continue reading

History Will Be Made… with an asterisk

Last night the red hot Red Wings won their 21st consecutive home game. This record bests the 1929-30 Boston Bruins and the 1975-76 Philadelphia Flyers who each earned 20 home wins in a row. The best part of beating this record for the Wings is that they won these last four with their AHL pull-up … Continue reading

The AHL All Star Classic Skills Competition in Pictures

The rest are here.

Notes from the AHL ASG

If any of you were still following me on Twitter, I’d be impressed. I attempted to do the play-by-play of the AHL All Star Game but clearly made a rookie mistake because there are only so many ways you can report 14 goals, but I tried! With this momentous (and I do mean MOMENTOUS) weekend … Continue reading
