Favourite Multiple OT Game

Posted Thursday | Comments 1
With another great multiple overtime game in the bag, what is your most memorable multiple OT game? I'll have to side with game 3 in the 2nd round last season with the Sharks leading the series 2-0 heading into the game. This game proved to be the turnaround for the Oil who rolled off 7 consecutive wins after this game. The bar we were watching at asked us to leav...

WHAT A GAME!!!

Posted Thursday | Comments 1
So, just got home from the 4OT thriller at the garage tonight, WHAT A GAME. I mean, they stopped selling beer after the 2nd intermission, so I wound up paying $4 bucks for Sprite, but that's all good. Go Canucks Go... and chants of TTTUUURRCCOOO filled the evening excitement as I basically lost my voice and drank ice cubes for 2 OT's. Skytrain was reasonable on the way ...

Overtime

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Can you believe how the Canuck/Star game ended? How many games that go into 3+ overtimes end on a nice goal? I mean really.....Hank is not a very likely hero as he barely scores any goals...but a nice looking goal? Same with the Shark victory over the Preds, great goal in overtime....not common but I am glad it happened. Lets hope day 2 will be as good!

The Overtime Dilemma

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
What do you do when you've invested 4 hours in a game, its 1:30am and a full workday looms 6 hours away? There is nothing better than a Stanley Cup playoff game going into multiple overtimes. There is nothing worse than that alarm clock going off anything less than 4 hours after finally falling asleep. Vancouver and Dallas kicked of what I love most about the playoff...
I was doing great watching the games downstairs (On the nice TV). Although the Pens vs. Sens early match up wasn't what I thought it would be, the later games really were starting to heat up. I was riveted by the Sharks vs. Preds game late in the 3rd period. I was thrilled when my old buddy J.P. Dumont tied the game to send to overtime. WOW! Funny, because it almost s...
One of the more visible changes to come out of the lockout was the institution of the shootout to decide the winner of games which remained undecided after a 4-on-4 overtime. This resulted in quite a lot of excitement for fans to be sure, but also let a few rounds of a skills competition play a large part in determining standings points for a team. The original move to ...
Bill Meltzer had an interesting post today regarding the debate over whether or not the NHL should switch to shootouts in the playoffs: http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog.php?post_id=7179 I stand with Mr. Meltzer on this, and just want to add a thought I had. The people who are looking for a change in playoff format are clearly not hockey fans, or they would know how rid...

Whither goest thou, Preds?

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
The speculation that various Canadian venues in Ontario would be chosen if the Preds were to leave Music City doesn't ask the right question: [b]If the Preds were moved[/b] to Kitchener, Brantford, Hamilton, or even The Soo or Sudbury - [b]the real question is,what conference would they be in?[/b] Would they automatically become an Eastern Conference team with such a m...
I bet you're wondering what I am talking about and saying to yourself "No one uses Time on Ice as a strategy for fantasy Hockey...." In my league we have just announced a statistic that will now become a strategy for our hockey team owners. This has been worked out to detail and such but is still actually being worked on to tweak out the bugs. Who played the most in the...

Panic Button

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
Are we really ready to panic in Leaf land already? It seems to be the same old story, especially last night, where the defence continues to break down, third period leads are blown, and bad give aways that lead to penelties and to top it all off, everyone's favorite overpriced D-man McCabe puts in the OT winner on his own net with 3 seconds left. This left me in a sour m...

Buffalo vs. Toronto preview

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
I just played NHL 08 for Sabres vs. Leafs and here's your basic rundown: 1st Mats Sundin scores 1-0 Toronto 3rd Alex Ponikarovsky scores 2-0 Toronto Henrik Tallinder scores 2-1 Toronto Ales Kotalik scores after Tucker just misses empty Buffalo net 2-2 OT Derek Roy scores 3-2 Buffalo
Anaheim had a terrific power play kill throughout the whole game. After the Ducks tallied back in the second period there was a leverage that would be slightly turned once more for the Jackets until Over Time. Special teams for the Ducks was what won them this game, hands down. These teams are wonderful rivals because when they play each other, they tend to have some very...

Have a great week. http://flyerflies.com/blogs/Buts/ Thanks in advance for any comments and opinions.
"...The shot from the point by Timmonen...rebound...THEY SCORE...jOFFREY LUPUL!!! AND THE FLYERS HAVE WON IN OVERTIME IN GAME 7!!! They're going to the next round..." Thank you Jim Jackson. Thank you Joffrey Lupul. Thank you Hockey Gods. What a ridiculously suspenseful game. I laughed. I threw stuff at my TV. I yelled at the refs. And I definately jumped ...
I'll do an introductory blog later. I'm going to have some fun with this first one. I hope you will, too. Every Playoffs, there is drama. There is no drama in any postseason, IMO, like an overtime goal in a Stanley Cup Playoff game. I was in the crowd for Game 1 of last year's conference quarterfinal between the Sharks and Preds, and I tell you, there's been nothing lik...
Yesterday the Sabres signed goalie Patrick Lalime to a 2 year 1 million per deal. Lalime played for the Blackhawks last year, but is mostly known for being the starting goalie for the Senators before the lockout. As for defesemen, the Sabres only chance is Orpik. With Striet signing with the Islanders, Rozival back to the Rangers, and and Commodore to Columbus, ...

All-Time Greatest

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Although NHL training camps officially begin less than a month from now, from where we stand it feels like an eternity. ESPN's E.J. Hradek has found a clever way to pass the time, by going through all 30 teams and listing the franchise's all-time greatest player at forward, defenseman, and goaltender. To date, he has only completed the Pacific Division, so I'd like to do h...
A lead blown. Three straight goals in the second period. Complete domination in the speed department. It was the same story in a different building tonight, as the Flames fell 3-2 tonight at Rexall Place, losing to the Oilers for the second straight night. I saw this game as simply a one period effort, with little promise shown. After a 17-3 shot advantage and 2-0 lead ...

Enough Allready!!!

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
The truth of the matter is I know how frustrating it is sitting and waiting for the Flames to make some sort reaction to a bitter season, But what is it that we (Flames Fans) want to hear? Really? Think about it!! Yes Sutter made a couple of knee-jerk deals, But If the Jokinen deal had worked out and say he had scored 40 goals and then they lost out in the playoffs, a...
Given my relative age the guys I saw play over the years or read about that really showed me toughness were the following guys: 1. Wendel Clark - he could score lead and fight the best all around player. 2. Doug Gilmour- he would never back down never give up never allowed himself to be beat up. 3. Darryl Sittler- he could score fight and lead both by example and ...

Panic Time at the Rock

Posted Tuesday | Comments 0
The winds of change have finally caught up with the NJ Devils and they have caught the mother of all storms. After years of watching a franchise buck the trend and be successful at playing their game and their system and not succumbing to the ways of the NHL. Captain Lou has finally lost his mind and took the plunge into the abyss and followed the great example of Charles...
This Summer, the National Hockey League has been looking at ways to improve the game. From moving the faceoff circles to eliminating shootouts, NHL officials have targeted a few ideas that could be beneficial to the entire league. After the NHL lockout, the shootout came into effect and many fans were excited about it, as expected. The shootout was something rarely seen...

Top 20 Sabres of All Time

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
#20- Chris Drury- He only played in Buffalo for three seasons,but he was a true captain on and off the ice. He scored that goal when it was needed most. His timely, clutch goals, are why he is on the ice in the last few minutes of a game. The hit that he received against Ottawa a few years back is what sparked the Sabres/Sens brawl . His biggest goal in Buffal...
The young Leafs need a Killer of a coach not a lame duck. He blames his players but takes no responsibility and from any reporter that covers him he's a prick to boot.
The Flames have been under the microscope with their farm system. There have been a lot of negative comments on the Flames' drafting. The Flames' draft history has been under a lot of scrutiny, and rightly so. I have heard over and over again that the only draft pick that has turned out has been Dion. I, for one, have really questioned the Flames' picks. They have always ...
Hello again, friends. It has long been my contention that, while gimmicks such as the shootout or the "regulation tie/overtime loss point" may (depending on your point of view) make overtime more exciting, the old W-L-T format is the best and most fair way to rank teams during the regular season. The NHL playoffs do not have shootouts, and you don't get half a win fo...
The Ducks dont get anything easy. Nashville, Phoenix, LA... they all keep putting points on the standings (even though LA cant put very many goals on the scoreboard. 3 goals in 3 games... just saying.) Saturday night the Ducks traveled up to LA for a huge Saturday night match. I'll be honest. Those are the two teams I watch the most and I can say without a doubt I see no ...
So Mr. Cherry versus the pukes, eh?” is the main story this week as I start my column off. I have a couple of comments here. First of all, the players deny saying what Cherry said they did. Plus, in my opinion, fighting has not been the problem with the NHL. The fighting issue has taken a second seat to head shots. So far as I am concerned, Cherry's comments on f...
Was that offense I saw? Wow, how nice it is to see the Lightning score goals and get solid performances from a lot of key sources. It’s like my entire Christmas wish list was answered in one night. Thanks Santa! Alright, so the goals may not have been the prettiest what with all the deflections and all, but a win is a win is a win and this team will take whatever it ...
The debate rages on about who the greatest NHL defenseman of all time may be. Names like Paul Coffey, Raymond Bourque, and Chris Chelios come to mind. These were all great players in their own right, but the conversation always seems to boil down to two elite players, Bobby Orr and Nicklas Lidstrom. This season Nicklas Lidstrom will move post Alex Delvecchio for tenth o...

The Ducks have been absolutely dominant at home this season, losing only twice, and never in regulation. The looked to extend that home dominance against the Canucks tonight, but ran into a goalie playing out of his mind, combine that with a terrible 1st period, and the Ducks almost lost the game. But a late goal in the 3rd tied the game, and then a goal with seconds left ...

Time For Change

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
It is time for change. How long can this team continue to play .500 hockey. We have seen this before (check last few seasons). The Philadelphia Flyers are just good enough to be competitive and win their share of games, but bad enough to have several losing streaks, be blown out or to be non-competitive. Getting into the playoffs is a struggle and nobody who understand...

Woman's hockey

Posted Sunday | Comments 1
To be honest the only women's hockey I've heard of was when Tampa Bay had Manon Rhéaume play in goal in the preseason of 1992 and then an exhibition game in '93 against Boston. My eyes were extra wide open when I saw women's olympic hockey this year, these ladies are fast and good. I couldn't stop watching. Being from Buffalo, NY and seeing two new rinks being built in fr...
Longtime Buffalo Sabre's goaltender Ryan Miller & the ever so pesky Steve Ott are playoff bound in St. Louis. Today Buffalo G.M. Terry Murray pulled the trigger on this blockbuster deal that gave the Sabres highly regarded Chris Stewart, prospect William Carrier a 2015 first round pick and a 3rd round pick in 2016. Western conference teams are on notice, the St. Louis B...
