(Video) Patrick Kane wrist shot OT goal



You might not have seen it last night, but this is a dirty game winning goal by Patrick Kane against the St. Louis Blues in overtime. Out of 14 games, the visiting team has only won one game.

(video) Brent Seabrook's dirty hit on David Backes (with quotes)



I would have to think that Blackhawks Defenseman Brent Seabrook is going to get a two-tree game suspension for this hit. For the record, Seabrook has never been suspended.

15:09 CHI Brent Seabrook served by Antti Raanta Charging (maj) - 5 min against David Backes
15:09 CHI Brent Seabrook Game misconduct - 10 min against David Backes

T.J. Oshie, where's the puck?


Check this out. St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie shoots the puck into the net and after a review, he's awarded the goal.

Winnipeg Jets’ Jacob Trouba stretchered off after missed check



Dangerous moment for Winnipeg Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba as he missed a check and was carried off of the ice on a stretcher. As you can see by the video, Trouba attempted to check St. Louis Blues defenseman Jordan Leopold and went face-first into the boards.

ESPN Predicts the NHL Finish




Wow, the ESPN writers picked who they think will win the various divisions (Atlantic, Pacific, Metro, Central Divisions) and these same writers also picked who they think will end up being the Stanley Cup. I am a bit surprised there isn't more love for the Detroit Redwings, only four of the writers picked the Redwings. I also have them penciled in to win the Stanley Cup.

NHL to use new Nets

The NHL is going to use a new net this season. Here's a picture of that new net. I wish sometimes they would just leave the game alone and just play hockey.
NHL.COM --- Gone is the traditional rounded "elbow" of the goal cage and now, replaced by a shorter angle according to the NHL, which gives the net a squared look.

The padding inside the apron of the net has also been trimmed, allowing officials a better look at pucks that may have approached or just crossed the goal line. The NHL thinks this change will allow for better efficiency in real-time goal calls and also in video reviews, which were sometimes hindered by thick padding inside the net.

It's been two days of practice with the new-look nets, and though there are multiple small changes, the one thing that some players mentioned is how they look to a shooter's eye.

"I think the biggest thing is that it looks like a bigger net, to be honest with you," Nick Foligno told BlueJackets.com

Minnesota Hockey: Freshma Tommy Vannelli decides to leave hockey program





Here's the latest out of Minneapolis. Apparently, Tommy Vanelli has already decided to leave the Minnesota Gophers hockey team before the season even begins. Sounds like the WHL could be a landing spot for Mr. Vanelli. The Minnetonka, Minnesota product was drafted 47th overall by the St. Louis Blues in the 2013 NHL Entry Level Draft.

MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota freshman Tommy Vannelli of Minnetonka has decided to leave the Golden Gophers' hockey program.

Hockey coach Don Lucia made the announcement Tuesday.

Lucia says after a few weeks of trying to balance academics and athletics, Vannelli decided that college hockey "was not the best route for him at this time."

Lucia says the team accepts his decision.

Vannelli split last season between Minnetonka High School and the U.S. Under-18 team. The St. Louis Blues selected Vannelli in the second round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft with the 47th overall pick.

Dustin Brown knees Jaden Schwartz



s/t to Kukla Korner... So, L.A. Kings forward Dustin Brown was suspended two games a week and a half ago for elbowing the  Minnesota Wild forward Jason Pominville, probably ending his season and now we see Brown doing this. Last night, Brown was assessed a two minute minor at the 16:58 mark of the first period for tripping Blues forward Jaden Schwartz, but you can see this could have been a lot worse.

So, I am interested in knowing what the explanation for this one is? To me, it would appear that Brown didn't learn his lesson from last week. We are told that he's not a dirty player and that he's only been suspended once by the NHL. I guess, I don't think he's a dirty player either, but the fact remains that he's leading with his elbow.

I am wondering why more people more upset with this hit?  We have a guy that was hurt by what appears to be a legal hit, the guy that hit him is going to have a hearing today and the hit in question is receiving a ton of chatter. If Brown connects with that elbow on Jaden Schwartz, he probably has  yet another hearing. This would be his second in a two week period.  Had Brown been facing another hearing, he would've been probably been facing his  second  suspension in less than two weeks. Thoughts on this one. Edit: Gryba was given a two game suspension by the NHL for his hit on Eller.

(Video) Jonathan Quick turns over the puck, and game to the Blues in O.T.



I do think that Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick would like to have that play back, not a good play, at the wrong time of the game. So, tomorrow's newspapers will read, at the 13:26 mark of overtime, Blues forward Alexander Steen scores the game winning goal off of a untimely turnover by Los Angeles Kings all-world goalie Jonathan Quick. Blues lead the series 1-0.

David Backes blasts Ekman-Larsson from behind



This is one of the hits in the NHL last night, that got a little bit of scrutiny, St. Blues forward David Backes blasts Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Ekman-Larsson from behind. Backes received a two minute penalty for boarding on the play.

This is a dangerous hit, these are the types of hits that the NHL is trying to remove from the game of hockey. I can't believe that Backes was the only one that got a penalty out of the scrum. It also appears, that the hit on Ekman-Larsson was in retaliation for a hit earlier in the game, that went uncalled.

Mark Olver steam rolls Vladimir Tarasenko



What a hit by former Northern Michigan Wildcat and current Avalanche forward Mark Olver on Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko. From the looks of it, it appears that Tarasenko is knocked a little woozy. There was no penalty called on the play.
