NHL Week in Review (December 21-27)

The NHL took a much needed break this week as teams took some time off after a long start to the year. With the approach of the halfway point for most teams and a brand new year the Christmas break is a chance for players to clear their heads. They get to spend some time with family and stay away from the road while their bumps and bruises heal up. The next time these players get a break like this it will be for the all-star break when not all players get the chance to get away from hockey for a brief time.

You can call them the Kings

The Los Angeles Kings had high hopes at the beginning of the season after management spent over $100,000 on improving the team. Unfortunately for them when the season began they were nowhere near where they were hoping to be.

Stanley Cup Preview

Sometimes it is best to go with your first instinct as a blogger that does predictions and I have learned this with the NHL season. In my 2011-12 season preview I predicted a Los Angeles vs. Philadelphia Stanley Cup Finals. I changed my tune though when it came to the playoffs as I then looked to a Nashville vs. Pittsburgh Finals.
