TweetThe Washington Capitals overcame adversity when it came to playoffs pairings this postseason. With Round 1′s matchup against the Boston Bruins, the Caps showed just how different of a team they were from Day 1 of the 2011-12 season. Being able to knock off last year’s Stanley Cup champions is the epitome of change to […]

Stanley Cup Playoffs: Round 1 Wrap-up: Cory Schneider is only winner in Vancouver Canucks elimination http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/22/stanley-cup-playoffs-round-1-wrap-up-cory-schneider-is-only-winner-in-vancouver-canucks-elimination/ Mon, 23 Apr 2012 04:40:30 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/22/stanley-cup-playoffs-round-1-wrap-up-cory-schneider-is-only-winner-in-vancouver-canucks-elimination/

TweetIf you’re going to lose, do it with your best. That’s how Vancouver Canucks coach Alain Vigneault approached the series after going down in the series 0-2. Roberto Luongo allowed seven goals in the first two games, and there was no reason to pump his tires. Cory Schneider is a proven backup goalie, and it […]

Stanley Cup Playoffs: Round 1 Wrap-up: Pittsburgh Penguins beaten by the best http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/22/stanley-cup-playoffs-round-1-wrap-up-pittsburgh-penguins-beaten-by-the-best/ Mon, 23 Apr 2012 04:39:06 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/22/stanley-cup-playoffs-round-1-wrap-up-pittsburgh-penguins-beaten-by-the-best/

TweetThe Pittsburgh Penguins should not despair. For some teams, a lot of the small things can amount to bigger problems. Perhaps it was Jaromir Jagr’s decision to sign a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Flyers last summer, putting the city of Pittsburgh on their heels until the ultimate gut-wrenching and disappointing turn to the rival […]

Signs point to San Jose Sharks to begin 5-year plan of rebuilding http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/22/signs-point-to-san-jose-sharks-to-begin-5-year-plan-of-rebuilding/ Mon, 23 Apr 2012 04:37:46 +0000 http://ballhyped.com/2012/04/22/signs-point-to-san-jose-sharks-to-begin-5-year-plan-of-rebuilding/

TweetThe San Jose Sharks were overly optimistic if they thought the mid-level talent brought in over the offseason would transcend into a Stanley Cup Finals team. Obviously, there’s no way ownership would suggest that getting to the finals was the plan. Great coaching brings good teams to the finals, and coach Todd McLellan has done […]

TweetThe Western Conference’s Central Division has become wild territory for any team to succeed.
