The Season That Almost Wasn’t (NHL Season in Review)

October is a great sports month for any sports fan as it can be the busiest time of year for the sports world. The National Football League is in the second month of their season, Major League Baseball is in the midst of the playoffs, and the National Basketball Association is just beginning their season. Of course there is another of the big four leagues in North America that starts in October as the National Hockey League begins its march to the Stanley Cup.

Time for Puck Drop

The NHL and NHLPA have consistently sent some mixed messages over the last few months and the media has not helped. There have been some close calls in recent weeks where reports surfaced that the NHL and NHLPA may have finally come to a deal. Many of these reports would be false as the NHL lockout would continue on and close in on another cancelled season.

NHL Week in Review (May 27 – June 7)

The Stanley Cup finals this year was one of the least anticipated finals in recent years as the New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings did not excite many people. The matchup had only happened once this year and there was very little history between them. Series tend to be more exciting when the teams know each other and have a history because the players have that little extra motivation to win.

The Cold is back and so is the NHL (Season Preview)

Last year the NHL saw yet another record losing streak fall unfortunately for Toronto fans it was not their Stanley Cup streak. Instead it was the Boston Bruins streak who had not won a Stanley Cup since the 1971-72 season. It also saw a streak continue as the six Canadian teams again were not able to break their 17 year Stanley Cup drought. They again had a chance and a very good chance with the Vancouver Canucks but were unable to pull off the win. This left the Boston Bruins as the defending champs and the Vancouver Canucks as the defending Western
Conference champions for the second time in Franchise history.
