NHL 2022-23 Recap Week 16 Hurricanes come back, Maple Leafs and Penguins get big wins, Bettman says no tanking and more
This was a great week of NHL games with several recurring themes. Many will be touched upon later in the column.
NHL 2022-23 Recap Week 15 Stamkos scores 500th goal, Canucks hire Tocchet, All-Star rosters finalized and more
One of my favorite stats is plus/minus. The team with the most players in the top six almost always wins during the playoffs. In the regular season, that's not always the case.
NHL 2022-23 Recap Week 9 Maple Leafs and Marner on fire, Shane Wright scores, Tage Thompson really scores, Skinner suspended
The Toronto Maple Leafs are emerging as a Stanley Cup favorite. Despite the Boston Bruins and New Jersey Devils getting all the headlines, the Maple Leafs are better suited to win it all.
NHL 2022-23 Recap Week 8 Kraken vs Kings thriller, Marner and Ovechkin set records, Bad week for Binnington and Letang
The Seattle Kraken beat the Los Angeles Kings in a thrilling 9-8 overtime game which tied it for the twenty-first highest-scoring game in NHL history.

We were all waiting to see where Claude Giroux of the Philadelphia Flyers would go. He was either going to the Colorado Avalanche or the Florida Panthers.
NHL 2021-22 Recap Week 21 Heritage Classic, Matthews and Gaudreau hot, Kings playoff bound, Eichel returns
The annual Heritage Classic took place in Tim Horton's Field, featuring the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Buffalo Sabres. The Sabres are the first non-Canadian team to play and an odd choice.
NHL 2021-22 Recap Week 19 Flames extinguished, Perry hits 400, Stadium Series in Nashville, Maple Leafs Red Wings go wild
The Calgary Flames were the latest hot thing in the NHL. Winners of ten in a row, tying a franchise record, the Flames went to Vancouver and were extinguished in brutal fashion.
Jack Eichel played his first game in almost a year when he suited up for the Vegas Golden Knights against the Colorado Avalanche. The game was decent, but Eichel had more penalties than shots on goal, which isn't what you want.
