The hockey player's lifestyle in Tampa Bay: what's not to like?

Last year around this time, in the days leading up to his re-signing with the Lightning, Ryan Callahan had lots of nice things to say about the time he'd already spent in the Tampa Bay area. That's nice but at this point, it shouldn't be a surprise that life around here can be pretty sweet for a hockey player. "Tampa Bay has been a great place to live and play from the day I got there. As soon as the season ended I knew it was a place I wanted to be." - Ryan Callahan on June 25th, 2014 Gee, that was awfully nice for Ryan Callahan to say. As a resident, it's always a pleasure to hear...

First round concludes without Rangers in it

So, tonight’s news for the Rangers is that there wasn’t any movement for the organization as the NHL conducted the first round of this year’s draft in Sunrise, Fla. Rounds 2-7 will be conducted today,  starting at 10 a.m. Rangers general manager Glen Sather was unsuccessful in trying to acquire a first-round pick in this year’s draft for Cam Talbot, though the backup goalie could still be moved today for additional picks. The Rangers swapped last year’s first-round pick and this year’s to the Lightning as part of the Ryan Callahan-Marty St. Louis swap and dealt next year’s...

Rangers with five picks in upcoming draft

The NHL today released the order of picks for the upcoming draft, June 26-27 in Sunrise, Fla. The Rangers start with five picks - we say start because we’re anticipating the Rangers to be active prior to and, possibly, during the draft, very possibly starting with a deal for Cam Talbot that most likely would net a second-round pick plus another asset. The Rangers have selection Nos. 59 (round 2), 89 (round 3), 119 (round 4), 179 (round 6) and 209 (round 7). This year’s first round pick (No. 28), of course, now belongs to the Lightning as part of the Marty St. Louis-Ryan Callahan deal....

Blackhawks vs. Lightning Game 3 recap: Chicago can't capitalize, falls 3-2

Chicago had plenty of chances in this one, but just couldn't get it done. The Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final, 3-2, to take a 2-1 series lead. The Blackhawks probably should've had this one, but couldn't capitalize on The first period started out very similar to the previous two games of this series, with the Lightning getting out to a fast start and dominating the puck possession for a good bit of the opener. Eventually it paid off for them, as Victor Hedman sent a beautiful stretch pass to free up Ryan Callahan, who ripped a wicked slap...

Blackhawks vs. Lightning Game 1: Chicago rallies for 2-1 win in series opener

The Blackhawks' third-line forwards and Corey Crawford powered the team to a stunning Game 1 win over Tampa Bay.
