Can the Maple Leafs become the NHL's version of the Chicago Cubs?

The party in Chicago is still going strong, just like it would for a long time in these parts if the Toronto Maple Leafs ever end the NHL's longest Stanley Cup drought.

Flyers outslug Oilers for seventh straight win

A sedate first-period that had little action turned into the wildest game of the season at the electric Wells Fargo Center on Thursday night.

Capitals' Game 6 win makes you wonder what Penguins have left

On the day before the Washington Capitals faced elimination for the second consecutive game, coach Barry Trotz shared his expectations for what he wanted to see out of his team.

"All it's going to take is all we have," Trotz said Sunday.

In goalie showdown, Nashville Predators pounce in OT, win conference finals opener

In any goaltenders' duel this postseason, it would be unwise to bet against Pekka Rinne.

Rinne's Nashville Predators prevailed 3-2 in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals on Friday despite 43 saves by his counterpart, Anaheim Ducks netminder John Gibson. Rinne stopped 27 of 29 shots, including some sterling chances from Anaheim's top players. Rinne leads all goalies this postseason in wins, save percentage, goals-against average and shutouts.

I would be so happy for PK if the Preds win the cup... except that means James Neal would too. UGH.

Still wish the Leafs had made it through the first round... *sigh*

Senators flex scoring muscle in Game 3 romp over the Penguins

The Ottawa Senators got here by playing stingy defense. They've survived with a relentless patience that comes with a trap that has frustrated the opposition to no end.

In Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, the Senators flexed a muscle that was new to them in a postseason that is becoming a bit magical -- a good old-fashioned romp.

Corey Perry's shot deflected in off Nashville defenseman P.K. Subban's stick 10:25 into overtime, and the Ducks snapped the Predators' 10-game home playoff winning streak with a 3-2 victory Thursday night that evened the Western Conference finals at 2-2.

Colton Sissons' hat trick pushes the Predators into their first Stanley Cup finals appearance

After their 18th season, the Nashville Predators are finally heading to the Stanley Cup finals. They eliminated the Anaheim Ducks with a 6-3 win in Game 6 on Monday, thanks in large part to a timely hat trick from Colton Sissons, who entered the game with two career playoff goals. Sissons' memorable evening was made possible by Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne, who carried Nashville for long stretches in this series and ended Game 6 with 38 saves.

Power-play breakthrough helps Senators force Game 7

Just when the Ottawa Senators look as if they're done, they find a way to keep going. They've plowed through injuries, deficits and blowouts just to keep their season alive another day.

Chris Kunitz's 2OT goal sends Penguins back to Stanley Cup finals

Chris Kunitz spent a portion of the spring nursing a lower-body injury and wondering if his time with the Pittsburgh Penguins was over. The veteran forward's contract is up this summer and he's been around long enough to know how these things go, particularly when you're 37.

Preds even Stanley Cup Final at 2-2, beat Penguins 4-1

Frederick Gaudreau sure is doing his best to earn his own locker with the Nashville Predators with a Stanley Cup Final debut for the ages.

For now, he insists he is happy enough just to sit on the floor as long as he plays.

Sidney Crosby set the tone, and the Penguins followed to Game 5 win

It took Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby 36 seconds in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final to remind us that he can take command over an NHL playoff game like no other.

The five most controversial calls in Stanley Cup Final history

On Sunday night in Nashville, Kevin Pollock was welcomed into an exclusive and very unwelcome fraternity -- the NHL Zebra Haters' Club.

He joins esteemed members like Leon Stickle, Kerry Fraser, Bill McCreary and Stephen Walkom, each of whom was inducted into the club following controversial, series-altering calls that helped shape the outcome of a Stanley Cup Final.
