HOCKEY CRUNCH – Marner Notches 2 Goals as Leafs Jump Bruins in Game 1 041219

My boy Mitch Marner showed no signs of pressure in the Leafs 4-1 win in Boston. He scored 2 goals( one by penalty shot while the Leafs were short handed) and even laid on some meat. The Leafs were flying and using their depth speed to put pressure on the Bruins. Freddie Anderson kept their… Continue reading HOCKEY CRUNCH – Marner Notches 2 Goals as Leafs Jump Bruins in Game 1 041219

HOCKEY CRUNCH – Habs Messy Season End With Bubble by Jamie Gilcig 040719

In this cap age of hockey a team must be aware of its asset management or it ends up like Detroit or Chicago, or sadly, Los Angeles. Going nowhere for the hope of a shot.

HOCKEY CRUNCH – Zdeno Chara Puts a Whooping on NHL PIM Leader Evander Kane 022719

You have to give SJ forward Evander Kane credit for taking a run at Zdeno Chara. Even at the ripe old age of 41 Chara can still handle himself as he demolished the much younger Kane quickly.

Hockey Crunch by Jamie Gilcig Trade Deadline – Bergy & Habs #epicfail Dorion Winning – Toronto Stands Pat – Winnipeg Panics – Flames Choke – Canucks Confusion

HOCKEY CRUNCH – Ottawa Sens @ Future Crossroad by Jamie Gilcig 020619

What a wild spot Sens owner Eugene Melnyk has the city of Ottawa and his own franchise in. It’s a Mexican standoff really.

It’s essentially a declaration… Continue reading HOCKEY CRUNCH – Ottawa Sens @ Future Crossroad by Jamie Gilcig 020619
