This is version 5.0. I've included the current playoffs and U-18's in this.
1) Nathan MacKinnon 5-11, 180 - C - He’s a first-line center and he’s draft eligible in 2013. I think he has top-five ability. He has great vision and he’s an above-average passer. He also can speed through the neutral zone like few can. Great hands. He is focused. Getting more feisty in offensive zone. Showing more toughness.
Hockey writers Mike del Tufo and Russ Cohen will be doing a signing of their book The Winter Classic – The NHL’s Savior at the Philadelphia Flyers vs. Boston Bruins game on April 23rd at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
It is being done in conjunction with Flyers Charities and it will be held at their kiosk by section 116. The signing begins as soon as doors open at 6pm. They will have books on-hand or it can be ordered at:
Philadelphia -- It’s not how you start but how you finish and right now the Philadelphia Flyers mini hot streak, two in a row, back-to-back, has now kept their slim chances alive (5 points out of the 8th spot) while hurting the Rangers chances.
The Flyers, Sabres, Jets, Rangers and Islanders seem to be fighting for the 7th and 8th spot in the Eastern conference playoff race. At this point in the season teams are supposed to play desperate hockey. The Flyers did and the Rangers didn’t.
Pittsburgh – This game should be known as the battle of Connecticut. Both teams are fierce rivals, they both play within 8 miles of the other and now they will face for the fourth time this season and Quinnipiac has won all 3 by a total of 13-3.
This is the first all-ECAC game in the Frozen Four. This is the first time an Ivy League school has made it since 1994 when Harvard was there. Harvard was the last Ivy League school team to win a National Championship in 1989.
