  1. Carcillo carries Coyotes

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    With the regular season in its final death throes, 'tis the time for a proverbial ice-length shot (I would've said Hail Mary, but I want to keep this hockey-oriented) when it comes to free agent pickups. In one of my head-to-head leagues, I've made ...

  2. 'Coasting time' means frustration in fantasy

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    Most likely, if you're still reading these here NHL box score blogs, you're either heavily embroiled in a fight to the finish or you just can't get enough of our collective wit in describing the prior night's action. This edition promises to be a doo...

  3. Ovechkin Continues Dominant Season

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    The folks in New Jersey and Montreal should be shaking in their boots right now, given the prospect of facing Alexander Ovechkin in the first round of the playoffs. Friday night's four-point performance by the Russian ace proved why they're rooting ...

  4. Rattling Their Sabres

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    To those who had discounted this season's version of the Buffalo Sabres from a fantasy perspective (ahem, I guess that includes yours truly), reports of their demise have been greatly exaggerated, as the saying goes. Each game from here on out is im...

  5. Marleau Bites Back

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    I'm very mad at Patrick Marleau right now. Marleau is having a lousy 2007-08 by most standards, although he's really caught fire as of late, with seven points in his past six games and a rise in his ESPN fantasy league ownership of 25 percent in the...

  6. New faces make fast friends

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    TDD (Trade Deadline Day) was Tuesday, as you might've heard, and one of my favorite things to observe each year after the deadline is out-of-place goalie masks. Sometimes, after a goalie is traded, he doesn't have time to get a design made that is ap...

  7. Insult Added to Injury

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    In the classic argument as to whether an NHL team's success is linked more to its offense or defense, the current tribulation of the Detroit Red Wings should give plenty of support to the latter. When injuries earlier in the season put two-thirds of...

  8. Gimmie Some Modin

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    A frequent subject of my "Icing it Down" columns, Fredrik Modin has been having quite an injury-plagued season. His latest trip to the injured reserve had him miss about two weeks of action total, but in two games since returning, he's had three goa...

  9. Goaltending Splendor as Low Scores Rule the Night

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    A quartet of one-goal games meant that many NHL fans were biting their nails on Friday night; moreover, we had four genuine game-winners, which satisfies my craving for legitimacy within the game-winning goal statistic we hold so near and dear in fan...

  10. Saves Aplenty

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    There hadn't been a "Night of the Living Goaltender" for several Fridays now, so it's fitting that the trend was renewed in spades as there was a double-shutout, a separate shutout from an old friend, and two other brilliant 'tending performances on ...

  11. Buffalo Stampede

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    Normally Friday nights are a fairly quiet evening in depth and breadth in the fantasy hockey world; it's somewhat standard that there're just four games or so, and usually only one or two guys have super-significant games. But on the night that "Clo...

  12. More Fantasy All-Stars Shine

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    I enjoyed reading the Fantasy Hockey All-Stars column earlier this week, but clearly there were space limitations, and everyone couldn't be included. Using the same premise as that list, I'd like to add some names to that list whose value has clearl...

  13. Brodeur slams the door

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    It always seems like there's something extra on the line when the Flyers and Devils square off, and although Philadelphia hasn't won in New Jersey in 11 straight games after Friday night's 3-0 loss, the competition is always incredibly ferocious. On...

  14. The Mad Hatter of Pittsburgh

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    With two of the game's premier young players, Pittsburgh will be a strong franchise and ticket draw for years to come. The Penguins' top line, with Colby Armstrong joining the aforementioned stars, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, is a fantasy gold ...

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    Jagshemash! The NHL's very own Kazakh goaltender, Evgeni Nabokov, added shutout No. 5 and win No. 20 to his season totals to lead the Sharks over the Blues 1-0. While his team has struggled mightily, much to the dismay of anyone who owns a non-Joe ...

  16. Avalanche rolls on without Sakic

    Tim Kavanagh, special to

    For the Colorado Avalanche, playing without Joe Sakic must be like if Metallica were forced to take the stage without James Hetfield. Sakic has been a cornerstone of the franchise going back to the Quebec Nordique days, and so the fact that he's mis...
