NHL Update:

  • St. Louis slights the flickering Lightning. #Lightning #Blues
  • Painful loss for the Pens, who worked hard to build a 4-2 lead, and then lose in OT, largely due to defective goal tending of mistake prone Matt Murray. #Islanders #Penguins
  • Bruins stick a pitchfork in the depressed Devils, and yes, they were done almost immediately. #Bruins #Devils

NHL Update, Recap and Perspectives, Friday, 10-25-19:

NHL Update:

  • Netminder Linus was certainly a great security blankey for the scrambling Sabres. #Sabres #RedWings

NHL Update, Recap and Perspectives, Wednesday, 10-16-19:

NHL Update:

  • Pens take hold of this game in OT with Tanev, and take out a quality opponent in the Avs. #Avalanche #Penguins
  • Stars looking far from the flashy group that very nearly took out Stanley Cup Champ St. Louis in last season’s Western Conference finals. #Stars #BlueJackets
  • With its offense being reliably fed by Kane, it now looks like San Jose doesn’t have a bunch of dead sharks on its hands. #Hurricanes #Sharks
  • Ducks finally stick up for themselves in a hugely successful second period comeback, which stops the previously red hot Sabres from further rattling. #Ducks #Sabres
  • Caps call on Carlson to burn the Leafs in a home bonfire. #MapleLeafs #Capitals

NHL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Wednesday, 6-12-19 (Playoffs, Stanley Cup Finals) (click for audio)

NHL Update (Playoffs, Stanley Cup Finals):

  • Yes, sometimes even a blind, last place squirrel finds a really big nut. Congratulations to St. Louis and its rally rodent.
  • It’s over. Quality prevails over quantity, as the Bruins get off more shots, but St. Louis is way more efficient.
    There won’t be three in a row, and there won’t be another parade in Boston … probably until next year the way the Red Sox are playing.
    How ironic that a guy named O’Reilly does in the Bruins. Another example of why never giving up can really pay off big. St. Louis just hung in there like grim death, and now they’re living large.

NHL Update, Recap and Perspectives: Sunday, 6-9-19 (Playoffs, Stanley Cup Finals) (click for audio)

NHL Update (Playoffs, Stanley Cup Finals):

  • Bruins were rock solid in all facets of the game, while St. Louis may’ve been doing too much praying and not paying attention to detail. Key reasons for tonight’s convincing win for the B’s were the reemergence of their No. 1 line, the near spotless play of Rask, and the great penalty killing and play by defensemen, including a huge clearing baseball whack of the puck by McAvoy and some majorly effective interference run by Big Z/sheriff of the fractured jaw. Boston now has all it could possibly ask for … one game at home for the whole ball of wax. #Bruins #Blues
  • Talk about counting your chickens before they hatch … I think it’s time pull back those Stanley Cup ads that were already running amok in STL.

NHL Update (Playoffs, Stanley Cup Finals):

  • Jordan and his Blues brothers bolster the hopes of Boston bashers by crashing the Garden party and leaving the Bruins in relative ruins.
    The only way Boston can win Game 6 is to abandon caution and throw desperation to the wind. Hey Pastrnak, it’s time to start shooting the puck. #Blues #Bruins
  • As for the missed penalty call that led to the second STL goal … forget about it … it happens…

NHL Update (Playoffs, Stanley Cup Finals):

  • B-eautiful ending for the Blues, who seem to be doing exactly what they did against the Sharks … hang around, wear the opposition down, and strike when the opening presents itself.
    With the o-fer monkey off its back, Tarasenko and Co. are now released from some very powerful historical/psychological demons; Bruins would be well advised to buck up, and figure out how to nip this turn of momentum “in the bud” as the series moves to St. Louis.
    #Bruins #Blues
  • If you’re a Bruin fan, it’s definitely time to tame that wild beast called Tarasenko.

NHL Update (Playoffs, Western Conference Finals):

  • Blues finally disabuse themselves of the scraggly Sharks, and after nearly 50 years, once again have a parking spot in the Stanley Cup Finals.
    Get ready for more Bobby Orr, as No. 4 will most certainly be on hand for moral support in what should be memorable series.
    Can Boston go 3 for 3 in pro sports titles and make it three in a row against the Gateway City guys? #Sharks #Blues
