The Toronto Maple Leafs are continuing to toy with the lineup as the season progresses, filling holes where they need it and plucking some players off the roster and either scratching them or loaning them to their AHL affiliate Toronto Marlies.

This isn’t the first time it’s been said, but hopefully, it will be the last.

It didn’t take long for bad injury luck to strike the Bruins after the team was relatively healthy for a few months. After being recalled on an emergency basis and playing in a 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators, Anders Bjork was re-assigned to Providence for the All-Star Break before being recalled without the emergency

If you didn’t already know that Patrice Bergeron is one of the best hockey players on the planet, he’s doing his best to put everybody on notice in 2017-18. While the 32-year-old has scored over 20 goals in eight seasons, eclipsing the 30-goal mark three times in the process, Bergeron’s production this season has been something

When looking at the 2017-18 Boston Bruins, one thing is abundantly clear; the team has more depth than any Bruins team has had in recent years.

While the Anaheim Ducks are finally at basically full health, the odyssey along the way in the first half of the season has been, in a word, exhausting. Numerous injuries and non-coincidental up-and-down play has summarized the 2017-18 Ducks to this point. So perhaps it’s a good thing that Anaheim’s scheduled bye week comes now. The

The losses keep piling up for the Sabres. After 25 games, Buffalo is officially tied for dead last in the league with a record of 6-15-4. The team is in the express lane to the golf course – its seventh consecutive season without seeing postseason action. They’ve become boring, depressing and unwatchable.
