Does this mean anything for Wideman other than having his record show a 10 game instead of 20 game suspension?

He should get pay for the other 9 games. So instead of missing 20 games of pay its just 10. 9 games of pay is roughly half a million dollars for him

Wideman has already served 19 games of the suspension, so while he won't get the extra nine games back, he will only forfeit $282,258.06 US in salary to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund, instead of the original $564,516.13.

nvm to above...didn't read

The Caps have not played with a lead for 5 consecutive games now. Not the best time to be playing their worst hockey of the season, but they've still got a month to figure this out.

Rough west coast swing for the Caps. Historically they've never played very well on the West coast. Not an excuse but at least they're not pooping the bed at home?

Right now all the "good" teams in the NHL have been very inconsistent recently. Hawks have played .500 hockey over their past 20 or so games. Panthers lost the Atlantic lead to the lowly B's. Bruins are a very inconsistent team overall. Wings aren't getting results. Stars have heated up recently but they're still very inconsistent at times. Kings haven't been playing very well, losing to the Devils at home last night. Isles lost Halak and have been very streaky lately.

Flyers making their yearly push in March. Always seems like they get hot in March to get close to contention and then fizzle out by April

Hopefully returning to home for the Caps will get the ball rolling again...

Even if this is the case I would be upset but not as much as past seasons. The Flyers were not supposed to be playoff contenders this year. However, this team does not seem like a team that is just merely playing hot. This team seams like a team who has come into their own. With Pittsburgh losing Malkin for the regular season the Flyers chances have just gotten a lot better.

I do agree to an extent. If they make the playoffs or not they have made better strides a a team this year, with Giroux and Voracek under performing for at least half of the year.

Sean Coutourier is the key to that time I think. When he was out the Flyers were giving up goals on goals from all over the ice specifically the blue line. When he is in the LU it's a completely different team.

Flyers season I think boils down to the next 4 games. They play the Wings, Hawks, Penguins & Isles. If they can get 5 or 6 points out of those next 4 games I think they have a legitimate shot to make the playoffs. If they can only come up with 2 or 3 it's hard to see them making it. Especially when they finish the season @Pit, @Det, Tor, Pit, NYI. The fact that they do play the Pens 2 times in the last couple games they could make up ground for sure, but the next 4 games are crucial for them.

Cannot imagine St. Louis can keep up this level of play much longer. They are playing amazing despite so many injuries. I do not think they have what it takes to win a cup just yet but damn are they playing well lately!

We also don't have 3 recent cups to fall back on haha.

They said, I am in Chicago for the Hawks game tomorrow! Went to the Blackhawks store today. Nice store! Very overpriced though!

No panic at all here, just a curiosity about where they will be seeded come playoff time. Every team hits rough patches in a long season, glad the Hawks are hitting theirs at this point - Hossa getting back in the mix, integrating Ladd, Weise, Ehrhoff and Fleischmann to the system, not to mention Kruger will likely be back for the playoffs to center the fourth line and add some physical presence to help out Shaw, Mashinter and Ladd in that department. Just have to get in in gear for the stretch before the first round. Gonna be a good measuring stick tonight facing LA.

Not picking on you, this thread just notoriously has had a couple fans that freak out whenever a losing streak happens.

They are still the team to beat in the east. Come playoff time though it all goes out the window because it is almost a new season. If they can get the puck to Ovi to shoot on net (whether he scores or simply causes a rebound that can be cashed in) they will keep on rolling. Conversely if they play a team with a solid D than can shut down his lanes they may be in for an early exit. Playoff hockey is a royal pain to predict so even great teams like the Caps, Stars, Rangers, Hawks, Kings or Ducks could go either way - an advance to the finals would be doable but on the other side of the coin I could see any of those teams make an early exit if they cool off against a hot team. Again, who the heck knows, I am no Miss Cleo!

Tomorrow's game is huge. Not that the Wings would be done if they lose but need the win to put some space there. Will get the first look at Anthony Mantha tomorrow night too.

Never assumed you were. It is a long season and becomes a grind because the players take a beating plus the teams have to worry about injuries and too much ice time for their key guys. It is natural that even the better teams have cold streaks. Admittedly I hate loosing streaks as much as anyone but I know they can turn be turned around in a game or two. Teams are never as good as they look on their best day nor are they as bad as they look on their worst day.

Yeah it f'n is!

Voracek will still be out. But they are 5-1-1 w/o him from what I read.

Wings just need to find a way to score for my sake. I can't complain too much about the way they've played since after the first period against the Jets. Excited to see Mantha play though.
