Quenneville was animated on the bench several times during his team’s defeat, but the fine is likely due to the coach grabbing himself while shouting at the officials. Here’s what he did in GIF form, […]
Night two in the NHL playoffs proved to include a little bit of everything. In St. Louis, the Blues tied it late and then won it in the third OT. In Colorado, the Avs stormed back from a two-goal hole, pulled their goalie with three minutes left, tied the game with 13 seconds left, and won it in […]

The Calgary Flames traded Jay Bouwmeester to the St. Louis Blues a little over one year ago. In exchange, the Flames received a conditional first-round pick, Mark Cundari and goaltender Reto Berra. The trade was supposed to begin the rebuilding effort in Calgary, but many believed the Blues escaped with a nice asset for an […]
