Pasta la Vista, Baby! When the Boston Bruins selected talented Czech winger David Pastrnak with the 25th overall pick back in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, they knew right from the start that they were getting a special player. The fact that “Pasta”, as he’s so commonly referred to by his Bruins teammates, went so very late in the first round is still a mystery to so many who cover the National Hockey League on a day-to-day basis. Fast-forward to his 6th NHL season, and we’re now talking about one of the most elusive and dynamic forwards in the NHL who is rapidly becoming (if he isn’t already) one of the finest players in the sport.

Welcome to the third edition of the NHL Weekly Roundup. Well, John Tavares is back! In Tavares’ second game back for the Toronto Maple Leafs, the star forward scored the game-winning overtime goal against the Vegas Golden Knights. Last week’s team on the rise, the St Louis Blues, stayed hot winning all three of their matches for the week, and if you got the chance to watch my game of the week you enjoyed a great one with the Boston Bruins beating the Pittsburg Penguins 6-4. Sadly though I’m not always going to be right, the Buffalo Sabres continued slipping as they lost both of their games this past week. In news unrelated to my last article, congratulations to Anaheim Ducks veteran Ryan Getzlaf on his 1,000th game played! Now let’s get into our stars of the week. Continue reading

The search for optimal players on tonight’s slate has been narrowed down to three games, New Jersey at Calgary, Washington at Florida, and Pittsburgh at the surging New York Islanders. Other games to monitor with high implied totals are the Blackhawks home to the Canucks and even the Kings and Senators squaring off in Ottawa. Let’s get right into it and make some Ice Picks!

Welcome to the second edition of The NHL Weekly Roundup. If you took my advice last week on what to watch you should have had a great hockey experience. Game of the week, Arizona Coyotes at the Buffalo Sabres was a fantastic game that ended up having to go all the way to a shootout!

A little hiccup in the schedule as the normal full Thursday slate has only two games. As a result, we will cover this modest six-gamer and in all likelihood Friday’s offerings. Tonight the high-event games appear to be as follows: Vancouver at the defensively-challenged L.A. Kings, Edmonton at Columbus, and Florida at Colorado. Let’s hop over the boards and go for a skate, time to make some Ice Picks. Continue reading

Edmonton, Alberta. Home to My, oh my, how the tables have turned, and what a difference a year makes. Especially if you’re a fan/supporter of the Edmonton Oilers. Although the 2019/20 NHL season is still in its infancy stage, few in the know would have predicted the success and early return that the Oilers have made on James Neal.
