The Pacific Division Race in the NHL

Nickolas Loza | March 9th, 2020

In the NHL’s Pacific Division, it’s been a bumpy ride all year long, with the top of the division and fifth place in the division being separated by only eight points. The contending teams are The Vegas Golden Knights, the Edmonton Oilers, the Calgary Flames, the Vancouver Canucks, and the Arizona Coyotes. All of those teams are in order from division leader to fifth. Only three teams can make it to the playoffs as a division qualifier, and one or two could make it as a wild card qualifier. It’s time to map out who will make it and who will falter down the stretch.

Why Coaches’ Conduct Needs To Be Addressed

Carson Babbini | December 20th, 2019

Recently in the NHL news cycle, it seemed that every other day we would hear new allegations about coaching misconduct. Over the course of what seems like months, but in reality, has only been less than a month since the allegations against former Calgary Flames head coach Bill Peters from his days as the head coach of the Rockford Ice Hogs in the AHL. Soon after those allegations came out, more came out against Peters from his days in Carolina. Now accusations have come against former Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock, Chicago Blackhawks assistant coach Marc Crawford, and former Dallas Stars head coach Jim Montgomery. This is a disturbing trend that needs to end. Here are a few reasons why.

Joel Dorcas | October 17th, 2019

Welcome in to another edition of Ice Picks. A nice nine-gamer on tap for us tonight. The slate has been trimmed down here to three games, Boston and Tampa are also on my radar but isn’t featured. (We should have some exposure to that game too as they are arguably the best two teams in the East). Teams with the best match-ups are as follows: Vegas at home to the Senators, Calgary home to the Red Wings and the Rangers at the bottom feeders, the New Jersey Devils. Let’s go for a skate and make some Ice Picks.

For a change, this particular Tuesday has a lighter offering of games on the schedule. Carolina Hurricanes and Calgary Flames are primed for high scoring as well as the San Jose Sharks at the slumping Washington Capitals. Detroit Red Wings at Edmonton Oilers round out my top three of the night. The Blackhawks can score in bunches but they are matched up against the number one ranked team in goals-against average, the New York Islanders.
