National Hockey League 2012-2013 Thread - Page 38

a lot of teams in the east seem to be waking up in the past 10 or so game. Mostly the Rangers, Isles, Sabres, Caps, and Flyers.

Meanwhile, the Sens, Devils, Hurricanes, and Jets seem to be shaky. Bruins might be in that list too, but it really doesn't matter right now.

also, this would be good for the Isles

East will be wild. Lots of teams are getting hot at the right time near the bottom of the standings (Washington, NYR, Philly) and others getting cold at the top of them (Pens, Bruins).

In the end I still think the Pens will be tough to beat in the East and the Habs are probably a few years away from seriously contending. Bruins are a wildcard; if they are healthy and motivated they can beat anyone, if they play like they are now they will be gone after round one.

Pens are catching the injury bug. Crosby and Letang, which we knew, but today they announced that Neal received a concussion after the hit by Del Zotto.

also, another scary skate cut incident happened this past weekend, this time it was in an AHL game. Guy went into the boards awkwardly and his own skate ended up on his opposite ankle. Yikes, I'd get me some of those kevlar socks.

picture of the skate with a bit of blood on it:

Kesler back tonight - playing him back into shape. Probably take about 5 games. Hope the old Kes is back.
post #563 of 882
here's to hoping he can just dive right back into action

Good one, I had to laugh.

Lets hope not. He actually has started to shut up more, but we prefer he stays on his feet. and use his skill.

Oh God it is torturous watching a Phoenix Coyotes game, clog, clog, clog. Give props to Smith for being a very good goalie - but ditch the mullet man!!!

So Kes gets the winner. And stays on his feet the whole game!

The Devils are playing great hockey, dominating shots-on-goal, but they're just not finishing. They've out shot every opponent but one on this 7 game losing streak... and 5 times the difference was in double digits. It's just so frustrating as a fan.

Rumor has it that Marc Staal could be skating in roughly the next week.



he could have helped in the defensive zone last night.




edit, update: he met with reporters a few minutes ago and said he started working out last week and skating yesterday, though there's no timetable for return. The fractures have healed, vision is not yet back to 100%, but there were no concussion symptoms.

AGAIN. Shots 28-18 Devils, but they lose 5-4. Brodeur is not looking great. Average goaltending would have won that game.

Love Brodeur, but there are better options out there for a starting goalie. Still incredible that he is in the mix at his age.
