The Norris Trophy finalist has been playing through fractures in his left heel all postseason and appeared to aggravate the injury during a sequence of collisions. He was favoring his left leg and didn’t return to the third period with the Rangers leading 3-0. Senators coach Guy Boucher said keeping Karlsson out was a matter […]

The NHL free agency signing period began Saturday (noon ET), and teams around the league are wasting no time going after players they hope can improve their rosters. Here’s a look at some of the big names around the league who are either changing places or staying put with a new deal with their existing […]

The hockey skirmish that kicked up Friday afternoon did not involve high sticks, wandering elbows or even that time-honored tradition known as face-washing. Technically, it did not even involve the Nashville Predators and Pittsburgh Penguins. It was a battle of words, waged on Twitter, between two Pittsburgh sports radio hosts from rival stations: Andrew Fillipponi […]

There are few more heartbreaking scenes in sports than watching a beloved star player leave the game for good without ever capturing a championship. That’s why when goaltender Henrik Lundqvist skated to the bench after the Rangers were officially eliminated by the Senators in Game 6 of their second-round playoff series Tuesday night, you had […]

Nobody has a goaltender like Carey Price in the league, Bergevin told reporters on Sunday. Goalies are not important until you don’t have one. … It’s a position that’s really hard to find, and we have in my opinion, our opinion, one of the best in the business, so I’m going to keep him and […]

Perhaps no one had more to play for than Crosby. The play that stands out above all others as quintessential […]

The closest he ever got was in the 2014 Stanley Cup Final, which turned out to be the worst playoff series of his career. He had just an .889 save percentage in four losses. The Rangers lost to the Kings in five. Having an all-world goalie doesn’t always translate to Cups. It’s not like having […]

Knicks star Derrick Rose went AWOL before Monday’s 110-96 loss to the Pelicans, but was back with the team on Tuesday. Derrick Rose has rejoined the team and has been fined. He is expected to be in uniform tomorrow in Philadelphia. Now that we know he’s ok, we can share some of the funniest Twitter […]

Joakim Noah scored just two points in 12 minutes in a win over Pacers and did not look like a professional basketball player on this free-throw attempt. Remember, he’s making $72 million with the Knicks. While Noah was putting up bricks, teammate Carmelo Anthony picked up the slack with his game-winning shot with 25 seconds […]
