    playoffs What may or may not have been detected in recent games is a chink in the armour or an Achilles Heel on the West s best team And it s something their rivals from Calgary will likely exploit come Saturday during the final game of our Hockey Day in Canada tripleheader CBC CBCSports ca 7 p m PT 10 p m ET Posted Saturday February 12 2011 12 30 AM Jim Hughson Montreal s matinee madness When the Canadiens got to the East final last spring it became easy to forget they were an 88 point eighth seeded David before they became Goliath The Canadiens are 10 points ahead of last year s pace so one would assume if they don t suffer through a massive slump they ll get a chance to duplicate that performance But there are a few questions nervous fans could be asking about the chances of warm weather hockey this year Posted Friday February 4 2011 11 17 AM Jim Hughson Caps could be up to their old tricks vs Leafs Washington s Alex Ovechkin whacks Toronto like a piñata 19 career goals so it s entirely possible we ll see the Capitals and the Ovechkin we re accustomed to at the Air Canada Centre on Saturday night and not the defensive version that has seemed to have taken hold Posted Saturday January 22 2011 12 50 AM Jim Hughson Leafs Flames in same spot but different place It s not the first place battle we had last week In fact it s even a stretch to bill the Toronto Calgary matchup as a desperate playoff struggle because they re so far back in the standings What this tilt is though is an interesting contrast of two Canadian franchises in similar spots in the standings but in very different stages of evolution Posted Friday January 14 2011 09 00 PM Jim Hughson Canucks starting to emulate Red Wings This edition of the Vancouver Canucks is getting close to emulating the depth and reliability of the Detroit Red Wings as the two top Western teams do battle on Saturday night Posted Saturday January 8 2011 10 27 AM Jim Hughson All eyes on Sid Ovie as Classic nears An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves American author Bill Vaughan If Alex Ovechkin stays up on New Year s Eve we suspect it will be for the latter The year wasn t a total dud for the Great 8 but it went decidedly downhill early on Ovechkin achieved some personal goals and accolades but anything to do with his Washington Capitals as a team went sideways The Russian Olympic experience was a bust just like the Caps playoff run last year Halfway through this season his team is just north of mediocre and so by the standards he s set is Ovechkin Posted Thursday December 30 2010 07 50 PM
