NHL Week in Review (March 30-April 5)

The NHL playoff race is coming to an end with only a few games left and one week of the season remaining for teams to make their move. Teams are not in the single digits in terms of games remaining and many of the playoff spots have been taken. In the Western Conference the division leaders have all solidified their spots in the playoffs with only the two wild card spots remaining. Nobody has clinched their division yet though as the race among the best teams in the league continues on for the last week of the season.

NHL Week in Review (March 9-15)

The NHL would begin the playoff race this week as players began settling in to their new teams and feeling comfortable with the trade deadline done. As the hockey began to focus more and more on this last stretch of the regular season the sport was struck with an event that put the sport into perspective. In the NHL this was the scary incident in Dallas when Rich Peverly would suffer a heart attack on the bench during Dallas’ game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

NHL Week in Review (March 2-8)

The NHL would go straight form their Olympic break into one of the busiest times of the year as the Trade Deadline would mark the beginning of the playoff race. Team would get on the phones and look to improve their teams either by bringing in a veteran for the playoff run or selling off veteran players to prepare for the future. It is one of the most important days of the year in the NHL calendar but the last few years have seen a pattern of less action.

NHL Week in Review (Olympic Break Edition)

The NHL is back as the Olympic Break is officially over and the season starts up again at the very start of the stretch run. Many teams are coming close to the 20 game mark where the run towards the playoffs becomes the only thing that the NHL teams will be looking towards. The playoff run is about to start but this year it will have a different feel. The Olympic Break will have a bigger effect on the rest of the season as the 10 days off could hurt or help teams leading into the final part of the season. The Olympics are a great event and an event that exposes the game of hockey and the NHL as a league to the world.

NHL Week in Review (February 2-8)

The NHL would play their last week before the Olympic break as the league goes on hiatus for two weeks. It is a break that is welcome by many of the fans who will be concentrating on the biggest international tournament. Fans will miss their NHL hockey but they will also follow along their NHL stars in the Olympics. The players will also welcome the break as those who will be going to Sochi will get a chance to achieve a dream.

NHL Week in Review (January 26-February 1)

It was another week where two games took focus over everything else as the stadium Series continued. The entire idea of the Stadium Series was to highlight the game to the USA by putting them in amazing stadiums. The stadiums became the focus of the series and they would kick it off in one of the most legendary stadiums in North America. Dodger Stadium had played host to some of the best moments in MLB history and in American sports history so it only seemed fitting that it would host a major game in the legendary stadium.

NHL Week in Review (January 19-25)

The NHL would start an annual tradition in 2008 when they held the first ever Winter Classic in Buffalo. Ralph Wilson Stadium would play host to the first ever outdoor game in NHL history in a move to expose the NHL to a bigger crowd. It was a spectacle and it was a success so the NHL continued to hold these games. It has become a tradition that on New Year’s Day the NHL takes hold and puts on their biggest regular season game of the year.

NHL Week in Review (January 5-11)

The Sochi Olympics are just a few weeks away and as the world watches Sochi for the Olympics one event will stand out. The hockey tournament at the Olympics has been the premier event of every Winter Olympics and a large part has been the involvement of the NHL. The league will take two weeks off as their players travel to Sochi and play for their countries and although the fans and players love it the time off could be the last time ever for the NHL.

NHL Week in Review (December 15-21)

Sports in North America are some of the most profitable industries out there with billions of dollars going through these teams. The NFL takes the cake as the largest with multi-billions running through teams and massive contracts given out to players. Every other league is just trying to catch up to the NFL and make that type of money and that includes the NHL.
