Game #74: Troubled Tuesday – Caps 4, Devils 1

Welp another day, another Devils defeat. And also another day, another major Devils injury. If this season wasn’t so catastrophic, the predictability would be laughable. Of course the game is of (at best) secondary importance with Binghamton losing to a … Continue reading

Game #73: Sliding Sunday – Avalanche 3, Devils 0

In seasons past, Devils related countdowns would be the number of points left to clinch a playoff spot or a division title. Now the only countdown is the number of games left in the season (nine left) before we can … Continue reading

The fallout from the latest call against Rangers and fan backlash

It takes a lot of incompetence to mess up games the way the NHL continues to. This isn’t only a Rangers problem. It’s a league issue that threatens to tarnish the great sport we’re so passionate about. Hockey is played … Continue reading

Games #70 & 71: Alberta Edition

I guess it’s true…even the worst offenses in the NHL are capable of getting hot for a couple of games or so. If you’d given me an under on 3.5 goals for these two games in Calgary and Edmonton I … Continue reading

NHL officials mess up another game

The final score read: Canucks 4 Rangers 1. To paraphrase what coach David Quinn had to say regarding an embarrassingly brutal five minute match penalty on Brendan Lemieux, he said they gift wrapped two Vancouver goals. Otherwise, he chose not … Continue reading

Lias Andersson should play in these games

Sorry. There won’t be a recap of tonight’s 3-2 overtime loss in Edmonton. There’s no point. Speaking of which, that’s all the Rangers do these days is get one lousy point due to the lame NHL system. So, they’re now … Continue reading
