Carolina Hurricanes tweak roster hoping to get back to playoffs

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, NHL,

Eric StaalThe Carolina Hurricanes won the Stanley Cup in 2006. Since then, it’s been almost exclusive misery for the fans and team in Raleigh. The Hurricanes have failed to make the playoffs in four of the past five seasons. In that fifth season, they finished sixth and won two seven-game series before bowing out of the Conference Final in four games. This season, Carolina hopes that a few roster tweaks will mean the difference between a playoff berth and early tee times on the golf courses.

Boston Bruins roster remains intact after Stanley Cup season

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Championship, NHL,

Mark RecchiIn recent seasons, we’ve seen Stanley Cup rosters disband (if not explode) during the summer months. The Pittsburgh Penguins lost a good handful of players after their run, while seemingly half of the Chicago Blackhawks roster was spread out among the league after they won. The Boston Bruins are looking to try the opposite, as most of the members of the 2011 Stanley Cup winners are back, which many think will give them the upper hand in their road to repeat.

Tim Thomas cleaning up NHL hardware

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Championship, NHL,

Tim ThomasIn the aftermath of the city of Vancouver tearing itself apart, it’s easy to forget that the Boston Bruins are the newly-crowned Stanley Cup Champions. Tim Thomas performed admirably in net in securing his team the championship trophy as well as locking up the Conn Smythe Trophy himself as playoff MVP. By shutting out the opposition in the biggest game of his life, Thomas has secured himself as a fixture as both a Bruin and an American.

Canucks go up 2-0 in Stanley Cup Final

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Championship, NHL, Playoffs,

Ryan KeslerThe Vancouver Canucks seem to have found their stride in the postseason. After winning the Presidents Trophy and being the regular season’s top-scoring team, they carried that momentum in taking the first three games against the Chicago Blackhawks in Round 1, but then stubbed their collective toe, almost blowing the series to the Hawks before winning Game 7. It took them six games to finish the Nashville Predators and five games to clinch against the San Jose Sharks, and now hold a 2-0 series lead against the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Final.

Tyler Seguin learning playoff style quickly

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, NHL, Playoffs,

Tyler SeguinShame on the Boston Bruins. Tyler Seguin didn’t play in any games during the first two rounds of the playoffs. Knowing that the Tampa Bay Lightning would be a tougher team than any they’d faced so far, they added Seguin to the roster for the Eastern Conference Finals. In his two games in the lineup, Seguin has three goals and three assists already, including a four-point explosion in the second period of Game 2.

Boston Bruins in do or die situation against Montreal Canadiens

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, NHL, Playoffs,

Milan Lucic and P.K. SubbanThe Boston Bruins beat themselves on Saturday night, falling 3-1 to the Montreal Canadiens in game two of their playoff series and going behind two games to none. The Bruins announced late that Zdeno Chara wouldn’t play, and they couldn’t compensate for their noticeably smaller blue line as the Canadiens infiltrated the Boston zone often. At the other end, Habs goalie Carey Price was spectacular again, stopping 34 of 35 shots in the win.

Zdeno Chara receives no supplemental discipline for hit on Max Pacioretty

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Injuries, NHL,

Zdeno Chara Hits Max PaciorettyMontreal’s Max Pacioretty got a severe concussion and a broken neck. Boston’s Zdeno Chara got nothing. This was the outcome after Chara checked Pacioretty into the turnbuckle in Tuesday’s game between the two bitter rivals. Chara got a five-minute major for interference and a one-game misdemeanor because the NHL rulebook calls for it if the receiving player is injured. But no supplemental discipline is going to the Bruins’ monster blueliner. Pacioretty, on the other hand, may never fully recover, let alone play hockey again.

Tim Thomas set for record-breaking season in Boston net

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, NHL,

Tim ThomasTim Thomas is a perfect 5-0 for the Boston Bruins this year. Despite that, his team sits in sixth place in the Eastern Conference. The problem the Bruins have at this point is Thomas’s backup, Tuukka Rask who is like a yang to Thomas’s yin. Rask is 0-2. Combined, the two goalies have given the Bruins 10 points in seven games. Talk to anyone on the Bruins and they’ll probably tell you that’s not good enough.

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: NHL, Playoffs,

Travis Moen & Martin SkoulaVancouver lays an egg and Philadelphia survives to battle another game. Pittsburgh squeezes a win out of Montreal and San Jose ousts Detroit in five games.

As the second round of the postseason winds down, it’s easy to forget that there’s still a full two series left to play.
