Karlsson and the Senators put a beating on the Maple Leafs, Crosby kept a good thing going, the Canadiens came away with a win, and more in six things we learned in the NHL. You can’t spell Norris without Karlsson The Ottawa Senators flat out embarrassed the Toronto Maple Leafs to the tune of a 6-1 thumping Saturday night. Erik Karlsson was his usual dominant self, totaling four assists in a relatively light 24 minutes and 30 seconds of work. Nobody logs as much ice time as the Senators two-time Norris Trophy winner, who is averaging 28:48 per night. Karlsson raised his season point total to 59 (11 goals, 48 assists) and currently sits in second behind Patrick Kane for the NHL scorin

Connor McDavid is must-see even on off days

Date: 2016-02-06

MONTREAL – Here’s the thing about coming to see Connor McDavid play: Under no circumstances should you leave the building early. Even if it’s a 5-1 game, and the Bell Centre crowd has already started singing “Ole, Ole, Ole,” and you’re concerned about the traffic. Because if you happened to slip out of Saturday’s game here when a television timeout arrived with about five minutes remaining, you missed easily the most exciting moment of the afternoon. A little McDavid magic. Something from nothing. “From the bench, it happened so quickly you couldn’t even tell that he went between his legs,” said Montreal defenceman P.K. Subban, with reverence. How best to put words to fiv

MONTREAL — Tomas Plekanec and the Montreal Canadiens finally had something to smile about, although they won’t have long to enjoy it. Plekanec, who had gone seven games without a point, had a goal and three assists as the Canadiens ended a four-game losing run with a 5-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday afternoon. The Canadiens (25-24-4) are back at it Sunday afternoon when the Carolina Hurricanes visit, while the Oilers (21-27-5) move on to New York to face the Islanders. “No complaints this time,” said Plekanec. “We played with confidence. “We moved the puck really well and scored some goals. Hopefully this is the start of the solid winning s

SHOWCASE

It looks to me as though the Edmonton Oilers have someone interested in Justin Schultz. Like the flu, signs are obvious: They are playing the living hell out of him, and they are using him in all three disciplines. That is my take. Let’s compare JSchultz’s usage today to his average for the season (average in brackets): Evens: 15:35 (17:01) PP: 3:39 (2:05) PK: 0:51 (1:10) Total: 20:05 (20:16) Huh. Evidence is not in the TOI, at least that I can see. Well, it looks like it, swear to God. What about last game?   Evens: 17:17 (17:01) PP: 1:15 (2:05) PK: 2:52 (1:10) Total: 21:26 (20:16) Hmm. If the scouts are in town to view Schultz, it might be Chicago, Toronto, Nashville,

Another Matniee Game, Another Poor Performance

Oilers lose a 5 - 1 stinker in Montreal I will reiterate my statement from the previous Oilers’ matinee game. I hate matinee games. They are the absolute worst. Sure enough the Oilers did nothing to disprove my hypothesis. Highlights Will publish as soon as available The Game There is not going to be a good, bad or ugly today because the first two don’t apply since this game was pretty much all ugly. Where to Start? The biggest thorn in the side of the Oilers was Ben Scrivens. He sure didn’t look like the goalie that couldn’t stop a beach ball in the AHL. He looked similar to the goalie that stop 59 shots against the San Jose Sharks a few year ago just not tested as much. Th

Cult of Hockey player grades: Oilers humiliated in 5-1 loss to Montreal on national television

Date: 2016-02-06

Canadiens 5, Oilers 1 One of these days I’ll need to run the numbers. It certainly feels like the Edmonton Oilers perform worse against a) subpar opposition b) during afternoon games and c) when they play on national television. All three were the case on Saturday, as the club put together a miserable effort and came out on the wrong side of a 5-1 score. Almost nobody came out of the game looking good; the team ranged from quite bad at the low end to mediocre at best. Even so, Justin Schultz deserves special mention here; he made mistake after mistake after mistake in one of his worst games as an Oiler. If Edmonton is in fact trying to move him before the trade deadline, outings like this

Date: 2016-02-06

Heading into free agency this summer, forward Milan Lucic can expect to get paid. His past performance, including a championship in Boston, along with his reputation of being a big, physical player will ensure that there will be many teams interested in signing him, ready to pay top dollar for the 27 year old. He’ll be coming off of a three year deal that he signed with Boston, which paid him $18 million. With Peter Chiarelli managing the Oilers now, there will definitely be some chatter about Lucic signing in Edmonton. But there are a few things to consider if Edmonton wants go down that route. First off, adding Lucic is going to require a heavy contract, likely in the 6-7 year range.
