Sharks looking to get back on track vs. Coyotes

If you were to evaluate the NHL's Pacific Division race by the last three weeks, you'd think the Arizona Coyotes were the front-running team and the San Jose Sharks were an also-ran. After all, Arizona is 7-3-1 in its last 11 contests and San Jose has won just three of its last nine (3-2-4). In San Jose's case, fatigue may be setting in as the Pacific Division leader approaches...

Pavelski Power

I call Joe Pavelski "Mr. Consistency" because every season you can make him down for 30 goals, 40 assists and solid contributions elsewhere. It's generally not flashy, just a consistent point with three shots, but at the end of the year it's good enough to justify a first round pick on him. Pavelski showed on Wednesday night that he's capable of dominating a game. Pavelski had...

Many times, like with Henrik Sedin last month, it happens when a player is reaching the end of his career. Sometimes, like with Alex Ovechkin last month or Joe Thornton a few years back, a player has a good amount left...

The Los Angles Kings originally signed Jones and as he started to steal games, other teams became interested.

WATCH: Patrick Marleau scored four goals in a period

Here’s something you might have missed in your East Coast slumber last night: Patrick Marleau went all Mario Lemieux on the Colorado Avalanche, scoring four goals in a period for the first time since Le Magnifique did it in 1997. When you join a list with Mario Lemieux on it, it’s mighty impressive … especially when you’re only the 12th person on that list. Just as impressive...
