Watch: James Neal's Hat Trick

He's kind of a big deal. Since the trade, James Neal has had a weight on his shoulders to score goals. It's something Predators fans haven't seen one player do consistently for... well, ever. When his first few games didn't go the way people expected them to, many pundits in the media snarked about how he wasn't going to cut it without Evgeni Malkin. All those pundits can shut up now. Early in the third period against the Chicago Blackhawks, Neal recorded his third goal of the night for his first hat trick in Nashville. Here's hoping many, many more follow. Relive them with us: The first...

The Noon Number: Super Swede is Super

A closer look at Nicklas Backstrom's big milestone 500 - Number of points scored by Nicklas Backstrom in his career so far, with #500 picked up in Game #501 last night against the Oilers. Per Elias, only five active players have needed fewer games to reach 500 points: Sidney Crosby (369), Alex Ovechkin (373), Evgeni Malkin (413), Jaromir Jagr (419) and Dany Heatley (456), with Jason Spezza achieving his milestone in exactly the same number of games as Backstrom. Backstrom also becomes the first player from the 2006 NHL Draft to hit 500 points... a draft class that included Jonathan Toews,...

Talking to Myself: Learning Curve

This week’s Talking to Myself hits on the beauty of simplicity, an ex-teammate’s story about Evgeni Malkin, finds a possible hint that a late camp cut may yet play in the NHL this season, and more. October 14th, The Mark Madden Show Ex-Pen Mike Rupp provided some insight on why Evgeni Malkin might have been nicknamed "The Bully" by his teammates. Here’s that entire segment. The Malkin story is around the 14 minute mark. That sounded exactly like Geno to me. I wouldn’t expect to hear a character guy like Rupp blast a former teammate, but at the same time, he spoke in fairly glowing...

Malkin is the Straw that Stirs the Drink

Evgeni Malkin's agent, J.P. Barry, said the accusations that Malkin was holding out because he doesn't like Mike Johnston were not true and in fact, Malkin likes Johnston. Evgeni Malkin is the straw that stirs the drink for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Unfortunately, negativity seems to follow the Russian center after the team refused to publicly acknowledge why their star center missed all of training camp and preseason exhibition games. The media was left to stir and create their own story. It all started at the NHL Draft in June. Penguins General Manager Jim Rutherford traded winger James...
