World Cup of Hockey: What would Canada's second and third teams look like

There was so much talent left at home by Team Canada, we couldn't stand idly by and watch it go to waste.

Capitals vs. Penguins Second Period Thread

The Penguins got the scoring started early in the first period, with professional thickman Phil Kessel ripping one past Braden Holtby from above the circle.

Madden: Lack of production from the superstars, penalties and Holtby to blame for Penguins' series continuing

I picked the Penguins to beat Washington in six games. Things are right on schedule. The Capitals had to win twice, and they have. It’s not 2011, or 2014, or even 1975. This is a different team, and a different…

The Ted Lindsay is voted on by members of the National Hockey League Players Association, awarded to the most outstanding regular season player in the league.
