Scoring Chances on the Power-Play, 2010-11

Several weeks ago, I provided a look at the Maple Leafs’ Even Strength Scoring Chances, by player, over the 2010-11 season. Now it’s time to get back on the horse and provide a look at special teams, an aspect of the game that the Leafs have struggled with for the past few years.  Today we’ll…

THOSE DAMNED CANUCKS

For three consecutive rounds we have called for the Canucks to lose their serieses. For three consecutive rounds we have been disappointed. We have now upped the ante and had a buddy in Vegas place a cool $10 beans on every team in the Conference Finals to win save the Canucks. Money talks Nation and…

Playoff Prediction Project Part 3

QUICK HITS: PLAYOFF EDITION

If Patrice Bergeron is out for more than the first two games, the Bruins will be in tough against the Lightning. Bergeron has been great, and if he is out then the Nathan Horton line will have to carry more of the load. Horton’s line was dominant against Philly, and it will be interesting to…
