Bruins vs. Islanders 3/19/19 RECAP: Bruins run the Isle over in 5-0 win

The Bruins pitch one of their best performances of the season in a dominant win! First Period: This dismantlement of an NHL team by the Boston Bruins began quite innocuously, as a hard-fought Kuraly shift resulted in a Kuraly shot that squeaked through Robin Lehner and into the net just a minute and change into the game. 1-0 Bruins! Nothing else of note other than Valtteri Filpulla leaving the game early due to an undisclosed injury happened. On with the slaughter. Second Period, where the game became essentially a formality: This period started with punchboy Matt Martin deciding he wanted...

Nashville Predators Viktor Arvidsson One of NHL’s Best Kept Secrets

Despite missing 23 games due to injury, Nashville Predators forward Viktor Arvidsson is on pace for a career season. Appearing in only 49 games, he's eclipsed the 30 goal mark. At even-strength, Arvidsson ranks among the league's most prolific scorers. Looking at contracts around the NHL for players producing at similar rates, his $4.25 million AAV is a fraction of the price many of his peers are paid. Taking a deeper look at the numbers and comparable contracts, Viktor Arvidsson appears to be one of the league's more underappreciated players. Predators Viktor Arvidsson Is a Great Deal If...
