Hockey's equivalent of the triple play, the automatic goal

03 March 2015 - 09:51 PM

NJ was leading the Preds 2-1 when Nashville pulled their goalie with about 3 minutes left. With just over a minute to play Cammalleri broke in down the right side towards an empty net and was tripped as his sweeping chance laying down went wide. The referee skated over behind the net and emphatically began pointing to the back of the net.
Automatic goal. NJ wins 3-1 and Nashville has lost their 4th straight.

Sounds like the New York "Islanders" are no more...

When they move to Brooklyn and the Barclay's Center next season it's sounding an awful lot like the name Islanders is going the way of the Dodo. The Company that owns the Barclay's Center has applied for two new trademarks on logos, both saying only "Brooklyn Hockey"




Patrick Kane, out anywhere from a month to rest of the season

In what secret reports are calling a clavicle/collarbone "issue" Kane could be out a while:


Patrick Kane Injured, Could Be Out A Long While

If you're a Chicago sports fan, you are not reading this, because there's no way you're getting out of bed today. On the same night the city realized that Derrick Rose will never ever be the same again, Blackhawks star Patrick Kane went down with an injury that could reportedly keep him out deep into the playoffs.


Corey Crawford, you're gonna be on the news for that

Heading to trade deadline, can someone help me understand

11 February 2015 - 12:02 PM

OK, this isn't about specific trades it's somebody helping me understand something before the deals start getting made and it's just for my own edification. Richards gets cut by the Kings, nobody wants him because that's be $5.5 million against the team that signed him's cap for X amount of years. Toronto has said they want to tear things down and start again but Phil Kessel is almost un-tradeable with an astounding $8 million cap hit thru 2022.


So my question is, if Toronto does to Kessel what the Kings did to Richards I know the Leafs must pay him but basically Kessel is simply priced out of the market to play in the NHL, yes? He can't in any way sit around and say screw this I want to disavow/tear up the Leafs contract can he? Kessel and guys like him are just stuck, yes?


Thanks in advance.
