News @ Night: Matt Gilroy of Boston University wins the Hobey Baker, Why the Penguins are the most dangerous team in the East, Dustin Brown’s thoughts on the Kings future.

 

  • Thoughts on the Ducks clinching a playoff spot tonight and whom they might face.  They will be dangerous to whomever they face.  Gotta think its a tough call between San Jose (proximity but great team) vs. Detroit (far away but great team)
  • Atlanta is doing some end of year shuffling and trying to figure out where they might be drafting.  See Drew’s rant.
  • Wideman, Axelsson moving closer to return for BostonGetting healthy now is always a good thing.
  • Looks like Bruins fans are sizing up Montreal for a 1st round re-match.  No love lost between these franchises.
  • As the Sabres were eliminated, Buffalo fans reflect on the season they had.  I was pulling for the Sabres to make it
  • The Avs Ian Lapperriere is set to play game #1000 against Vancouver tomorrow.  Guy is a warrior
  • Are the Red Wings on cruise control and do they need to get back on track?  It would appear so and hopefully Hossa’s “lower body injury”, which looked like a twisted ankle won’t keep him out long.
  • Here’s what Dustin Brown had to say today about the Kings’ needs and his thoughts about where they’re headed.  Hope these guys can turn it around and get back into the playoffs.
  • Some thoughts on what Minnesota needs to do and whether that involves GaborikDespite all his talent, they might be better off going in a new direction.
  • Why a wayward fan or a new fan of the game should follow the New Jersey DevilsHard to argue with success but there is plenty of room in the Prudential Center.
  • Long Island’s Matty Gilroy (currently playing for Boston University) is the winner of the 2009 Hobey Baker Award.  Now he just has to win the Championship over Miami (Ohio) tommorrow and he will have quite the weekend to remember.
  • If the Islanders get the No. 1 on Tuesday, they should immediately declare “Tavares”!  But then what would TSN do with the 72 hours of pre-draft drama.
  • Rangers fans can breathe a sigh of relief as the team gets ready for the playoffs.  This is the most confusing team in the NHL.  Every time you think they are going to be dangerous they fold
  • Why the Penguins are the most dangerous team in the East.  If they are clicking they can be deadly.
  • The Blues can clinch tonight.  I hope they do.  The franchise deserves to start a new streak of playoff runs.
  • With news that the Philadelphia Spectrum will be demolished a reflection on the Top 10 games played in the building from a Washington point of view.   Always hard to see a building you love demolished.
  • Who should be the backup goalie duirng the Caps playoff run?  Seems like Johnson is the safer pick.
  • College hockey throws a great party.  After seeing the partying with the Spartans making the Championship game in basketball, it doesn’t surprise me.

The Jets remain off but both the Moose and Ice are in action tomorrow.

Manitoba will be in Milwaukee to take on the Admirals.

Ice will be in Brandon to take on the Wheat Kings.
