If you’re a hockey fan it doesn’t get better than the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Sixteen teams will enter, but only one will emerge victorious, with team captains and jubilant teammates taking a victory lap around the ice.

Things are not looking for the Miami Heat. Some would even say the Heat had no fire in game four of the NBA Finals. They had plenty of advantages going in, with star forward LeBron James looking to rebound from a sub par performance in game three, and a home crowd at the American Airlines…

The New York Rangers will live to fight another day.

The 2014 NBA and NHL Finals roll on! After our last double header preview the Miami Heat made good on my prediction to rebound (pun intended) from LeBron James cramping up in game one, picking up a close 98-96 win over the San Antonio Spurs on their home court. Meanwhile the Los Angeles Kings used…

Everybody fought until bitter end in the conference finals of the 2014 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs. Down 3-1 in their respective brackets, both the Montreal Canadiens and Chicago Blackhawks refused to roll over and die, forcing a game 6 and a game 7 respectively before falling to defeat. If that’s any sign of what we’re…

As the baseball great Yogi Berra once famously said, “It ain’t over ’til it’s over.” Though both the New York Rangers and the Los Angeles Kings seemed a lock to clinch their respective conferences just a couple of days ago, the improbable and unlikely actually happened. As some of you may know by now my…

We’ve reached a make or break point in the NHL conference finals as both the Western and Eastern playoffs have reached a decisive game 5 where one team has a 3-1 lead on the other. Obvious pun or not, the odds are not looking good for the Canadiens and the Blackhawks, which makes my original…

It helps as a sports writer when you humble yourself every now and then and remember you’re not infallible when it comes to predictions. In our last preview I talked about how dominant the Blackhawks looked, how bad the Kings had looked, and how the Blackhawks hadn’t lost on home ice at the United Center…

After our last look at the Stanley Cup Playoffs things went from bad to worse for the Montreal Canadiens. Looking to rebound from a 7-2 thumping in game one, the Habs were forced to attempt their comeback without star goalie Carey Price, who went down with an injury after Chris Kreider collided with him in…

It took us a little while to get here. The 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs started on April 16th, and out of the twelve match-ups so far, ten have gone to either a 6th or a 7th game. The only “blowouts” so far if you want to call them such are the Boston Bruins beating the…

The United States has taken a bruising in the last few days, giving up a two goal lead in the final minutes of the women’s gold medal game, ultimately losing to Canada in extra time. They may be happy when they reflect on back on their run in years to come, but on February 20th…

The field chasing medals in the 2014 Winter Olympics continues to narrow in men’s hockey. The quarterfinal round had Sweden scoring a decisive 5-0 victory over Slovakia, and an equally dominant 5-2 win by the United States over the Czech Republic. Olympic favorite Canada narrowly edged out Latvia 2-1, and in what has to be…

It’s time for another look at Olympic Men’s Hockey! The United States, Canada and Sweden all emerged from the first round of group play undefeated, and while that seems like good news on paper, no unbeaten team from the opening round has gone on to win the gold medal since 1998. There’s good action to…

The 2014 Winter Olympics from Sochi are in full swing and the “Olympic Madness” is upon us. There are always a few marquee events at the games that garner the public’s attention – figure skating, the ski jump, snowboarding and the like.
