From the middle of the bench – November 29, 2011

From the middle of the bench – November 29, 2011 Will firing Bruce Boudreau and Paul Maurice really make a difference?  History suggests it will.  Every single in-season coaching change over the past three seasons has led to improvement. This season Ken Hitchcock replaced Davis Payne in St. Louis and has led the Blues to an 8-2-1 record, a stark contrast to the 6-7-0 mark under Payne.  Payne himself was an in-season replacement for...

Sharks Tales – November 28, 2011

Sharks Tales – November 28, 2011 This weekend the Riverside Minor Hockey Novice Sharks staged a furious rally in their game against the Canadiens to earn a 7-7 tie.  Trailing 5-0 early, Seth and Tristan both playing right defense went on a tear offensively displaying the skills they have been working on all season with our x-hockey products. Already a strong skater with nice hands Seth has really improved his finishing this season...

Crosby’s Return – From the middle of the bench – November 22, 2011

From the middle of the bench – November 22, 2011 Sidney Crosby made his triumphant return to action on Monday night against the New York Islanders after missing 61 games with a concussion.  He scored two goals and two assists for four points.  That puts him one point ahead of Todd Bertuzzi (DET) and Kyle Okposo (NYI) and one behind and Ville Leino (BUF), all of whom were expected to be offensive contributors and top six forwards on...

Sharks Tales – November 21, 2011

Sharks Tales – November 21, 2011 This past weekend the Riverside Minor Hockey Novice Sharks had a great practice on Saturday morning.  We kept the practice simple with essentially just four components to it, but the coverage of skills and the pace was really good. The kids came ready to participate and burned a lot of energy. As we do every week we started the practice by combining the kids from the two teams that share the practice...

Sharks Tales – November 14, 2011

Sharks Tales – November 14, 2011 The Riverside Minor Hockey Novice Sharks have had an odd couple of weeks, with some unanticipated factors having a significant impact on the performance of the players. Saturday, November 5th was picture day, and thankfully our practice took place after the pictures. The kids looked sharp and we should have a great team photo. The kids were really fired up for practice too, and it helped that it was at...

From the middle of the bench, November 15, 2011

From the middle of the bench, November 15, 2011 A couple of things that have occupied my thoughts while watching the games from my usual spot in the middle of the bench. To Attack the Trap or Not The Philadelphia Flyers expanded on a system employed by the Washington Capitals last season against the Tampa Bay Lightning’s now famous 1-3-1 trap on Wednesday, November 9.  If you haven’t seen the video evidence, the Flyers refused to come...

From the middle of the bench – November 1, 2011

From the middle of the bench – November 1, 2011 The NHL standings look a lot different than we are accustomed to seeing as we head into the second month of the season. Last year’s Stanley Cup finalists, Boston and Vancouver, would not qualify for a playoff spot if the NHL’s second season started today. In fact, the defending champion Bruins are last in the Eastern Conference while the normally down-trodden Toronto Maple Leafs lead the...
