Something to justify Racki's love for the Habs
Trogdor isn’t dead! So they made me do today’s write up…
Flyers moved on defeating Boston in game 7. Habs pulled a similar trick on the Pens, and the Hawks reinforced that the giant C on the Vancouver jerseys stands for CHOKE!!! Round 3 kicked off with the Flyers making the Habs look like the Hab nots with a 6-0 drubbing, chasing Halak from the net and then everyone’s favorite Canuck killer Dustin Byfuglien scored late in the 3rd to give the Hawks a 1-0 series lead over the Sharks.

Looks like MetalOil did the best on last rounds predictions and as before, if you have some thoughts, post them below. Here’s what the magic 8-Ball influenced picks of the POTF staffers look like for round 3. Continue reading 'Playoff predict-o-rama – Round 3! Plus MMS and other news'»
Avs, Oil and Caps. Who's next?
So far this season three players have tested positive for the H1N1 virus. Patient zero was Peter Budaj of the Colorado Avalanche, more recently Ladislav Smid of the Edmonton Oilers and today news of Quintin Laing of the Washington Capitals.

"Two minutes, by yourself, you know and you feel shame, you know."
First off, we’ll start with the Oilers news.
Andrew Cogliano Speaks About Trade
Andrew Cogliano talked with the media earlier today about the trade that didn’t happen. “When you’re watching TV and your name comes up, it’s pretty shocking. It was disappointing. I like being here.

The great burning Heatley bush bestows us with the blessing of a few words today
Note: this post will be updated later after the Heatley presser is over, and possibly again after Brian Murray’s press conference.
Update: Post has been updated with the actual transcript from the Ottawa Citizen.
Ok, it hasn’t been that long since the last update, but because Dany Heatley always gets to be front page news, and because he gave a press conference about why he hates you (yes, you specifically), and because there’s actually a couple of other news items from around the NHL again, you get this update.
