  1. The Instigator - Episode 19 - Malkin Hit on Oshie | Overreaction? When Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Evgeni Malkin drove his shoulder in to the head of Washington Capitals forward TJ Oshie the hockey world went crazy. Half of the people were screaming for a suspension and half thought the match penalty was outrageous. It was an interesting play and call. Brad Burud breaks down the hit and discusses his opinion on what the penalties or suspensions should have been. PODCAST
  2. The Instigator |Episode 16 1,260,162 Thank You’s to the NHL Well the wildly overpaid goon for the Washington Capitals is back at it again, but this time the National Hockey League makes him pay for it. In the Capitals final preseason game, forward Tom Wilson landed a vicious head shot on St. Louis Blues forward Oskar Sundqvist. The was needless and extremely dangerous. This time the NHL got the suspension right. PODCAST
  3. Thanks for reading! Please visit Below the Goal Line for more exclusive hockey content. NHL Game Updates: Buffalo Sabres @ Toronto Maple Leafs, The Sabres are victorious in this one 3-2. Toronto is comfortably in third place in the Atlantic Division, but hopes of moving up into second place are almost gone. Florida Panthers @ New York Islanders, The Panthers are now just one point behind the Devils for the final Wild Card spot thanks to a 3-0 win. The frustrated Islanders were officially eliminated from the playoffs. Ottawa Senators @ Carolina Hurricanes, The Ottawa Senators look like they are all focused on the summer and not the rest of this season. I can't blame these guys for that, as their dreadful season continues with a 4-1 loss in Raleigh. Detroit Red Wings @ Montreal Canadiens, Two non-playoff teams duked it out in this one, and it was the home Canadiens who were victorious 4-2. Brendan Gallagher now has 30 goals this season after potting two tonight. Arizona Coyotes @ Tampa Bay Lightning, The roller coaster ride that is the Tampa Bay Lightning continues as they lose 4-1 on home ice to the Coyotes. The Lightning are in coast mode right now, as they have been atop the standings for most of the season. That won't get it done, even against and NHL bottom feeder. San Jose Sharks @ Chicago Blackhawks, The Sharks get shootout goals from Logan Couture and Kevin Labanc to win their eighth straight game, their longest since the 2008-09 season. Evander Kane, who will be a free agent this summer, scored again for the Sharks. 4-3 (SO) was the final here. Colorado Avalanche @ Vegas Golden Knights, Vegas needed just one point to clinch a playoff spot. They got two with a 4-1 victory. I don't know what's more impressive, Jonathan Marchessault with 72 points in 73 games this season or William Karlsson with 40 goals on the year. Calgary Flames @ Los Angeles Kings, Calgary has been falling out of the playoff picture for weeks, but they were officially eliminated tonight thanks to a 3-0 loss to the Kings. Washington Capitals v New York Rangers: The Metropolitan Division leading Washington Capitals visit the New York Rangers tonight as they look to continue their push towards the playoffs. The Capitals have a comfortable three-point cushion on the Pittsburgh Penguins, while the Rangers do not have the opportunity to qualify for the postseason. The Capitals started fast in this one. T.J. Oshie scored less than three minutes into the opening period. Oshie is left alone coming down the right-wing side and fired a puck past rookie goalie Alexander Georgiev from the right face-off circle. Defenseman Matt Niskanen would add to the lead at 5:13 with his seventh of the year. Niskanen was again left alone, and Georgiev has little chance to make a stop after Niskanen has several seconds to perfect his shot. The onslaught continued when Alex Ovechkin scored his 45th of the season at 8:54. Ovechkin blasts the puck past Georgiev on the powerplay, and the Rangers decided to go with goalie Ondrej Pavelec for the rest of this contest. Pavelec didn't fare much better in the first period, as Evgeny Kuznetsov got his 24th of the season on a Rangers powerplay. The Capitals took this 4-0 lead into the second period. Fortunately for the Rangers, the Capitals' offense goes quiet the rest of the way. Lias Andersson would score his first NHL goal in the second period, and Mats Zuccarello would beat goaltender Philipp Grubauer in the third. The Rangers would only muster two as they fall 4-2. The Capitals open up a five point lead for the Metro Division lead with the win tonight. The Caps surged through the first period, but looked tired in stretches in the second and third periods. Look for some players to take maintenance days the rest of the way, especially if Washington locks up a playoff spot in the coming days. It is just a matter of time for the Capitals, as teams have around six games left on their schedules. The Florida Panthers sit in ninth place in the East with 85 points, 12 less than Washington. A few wins or a couple of losses by the Panthers and New Jersey Devils, and the Caps will qualify for the playoffs. Thanks for joining us.

  4. Tonight is the night when most of the hockey world will focus on the Sabres vs Capitals game tonight in the Verizon Center. Buffalo and Washington come into tonight's game tied for 8th place in the Eastern Conference with 84 points. Winner takes lone possession of 8th place. Let me say this before I go any further. THE LOSER OF THIS GAME WHETHER IT BE BUFFALO OR WASHINGTON IS NOT OUT OF IT. With that being said whatever team walks away with the two points will feel pretty good going into the final 5 games. The Sabres come in on a 4 game winning streak after wins over Tampa Bay, Montreal, Rangers, and Minnesota last week by a combined score of 17-5. The Sabres have found the scoring touch with the Ennis line rolling and Cody Hodgson finding is comfort zone. Hodgson has had at least two points in 3 of the last 4 games. The Caps come in continuing their roller coster season, last week they got smoked by the Hawks, rolled the Wings in Detroit, gave up a 3-0 lead for a OT loss to Winnipeg at home, lost to the Flyers in a shootout, and beat Minnesota 3-0 on Sunday. The consistentcy in the last week has come from Alex Ovechkin, he is red hot and has 9 goals in his last 7 games. Sabres will need to wrap him up tonight to have a chance for two points. On the injury front for Buffalo PK36 will return to the lineup tonight resulting in Travis Turnbull being returned to Rochester. Turnbull was impressive in his first NHL call up with a goal in NY and bringing the physical play. Nathan Gerbe was cleared to play, but with only one practice under his belt since his injury he will sit out until Friday against the buzzsaw known as the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Caps will be without Nik Backstrom tonight, but he has been cleared for contact and it is believed he will play again before the regular season ends. Vokoun is still out with an injury meaning young Brayden Holtby will get the cage tonight allowing one goal in his last two starts. Miller obviously in goal for Buffalo. Dale Hunter will roll with the same lineup he used against the Wild dressing 11 forwards and 7 D-men, allowing for Ovechkin to be double shifted and be on the ice for 50% of the game. Buffalo will try to counter with Robyn Regehr and Andrej Sekera to hold on AO. Although with Ovechkin being double shifted the other two pairs will need to be on their game and take away time and space. The first goal tonight will be huge if the Caps get up early the crowd will get into the game and if Buffalo gets on the board early they could quiet the rackus house of red. All in all should be a battle and tons of fun to watch. Gotta love the NHL playoff race/playoffs. Projected Lineup: Foligno-Ennis-Stafford Vanek-Hodgson-Tropp Leino-Roy-Pominville Kaleta-Boyes-McCormick Myers-Leopold Ehrhoff-Sulzer Regehr-Sekera Miller (Enroth) How about some playoff motivation...
  5. Last night I got my second look at a full game from the Washington Capitals. In the first game the Sabres pounded the Caps in route to a 5-1 W and last night was much of the same resulting in a Sabres 4-2 W. The Caps team that I saw back in November only had one difference then the team I saw last night, a new coach. Watching this game to me proved that Bruce Boudreau was not the problem in Washington. The Caps started out red hot to start the season going 7-0-0, I was one of a few people at the time that was skeptical of the quick start. I told everyone who asked me about it to come ask me again in 40 games, well here we are. They sit in 11th place with 36 points, 2nd in the Southeast behind a surprising Panthers team. The one good thing for the Caps is that the Lightning have proved they just got hot at the right time last season. The Capitals were almost crowned Stanley Cup Champions in the summer with the signings of Ward, Hamrlik, and Vokoun. Also the trade for Brouwer and robbing the Avs in the Varlamov trade. The abscence of Mike Green, has been huge for the Caps, they are not the same team without him. However I don't think that he is going to come back and Caps are going to be world beaters again. They have to many problems on that squad. First might be the mistake of putting the C on Ovi. He is a great player, but a leader of a hockey club with a great deal of pressure I'm not so sure. Ovechkin has had the reputation of crumbling under pressure (Playoffs and 2010 Olympics). He has produced way under his potential in the last season and a half. He seems disinterested and slow at times, for example in the earlier Sabres matchup, Hecht beat Ovi in a foot race to a loose puck at center ice and pulled away from him resulting in a SHG. Maybe both the Caps and the Great 8 could use a change of scenery. Another problem is the "look at me" attitude this team has. Most noteable in the characters of Alex Semin, AO, and Nicklas Backstrom. This team is not a team, there's a definate seperation that is not hard to notice. Ovechkin was crushed twice last night by Zack Kassian and Robyn Regher. Not one Cap player challenged either player or even seemed to be bothered by it. I'm pretty sure if someone put a good lick on Crosby the entire Pens team would come over the bench. Last week in Toronto Phaneuf slashed Vanek way after the whistle and 19 year old Brayden McNabb challenged Phaneuf along with 20 year old Zack Kassian on two different occassions. Those are signs of a close team that cares about their teammates. Semin right now has a one way ticket to the KHL next season, good luck to the Caps in trying to trade him at the deadline. Any team that offers more than a bag of pucks for Semin's services is making a huge mistake. He has no interest it putting in the work and effort needed to be an elite hockey player. Last issue as with past Caps teams is the goaltending. Vokoun has not come as advertised and now that 1 million and change contract he signed in the offseason does seem to be about right. Young Michael Neuvirth is regressing after a strong season last year, but a horrible playoffs. The Capitals now need to hope Brayden Holtby currently playing in the AHL can bring stability in the coming years. Perhaps the best thing that could happen to the Washington Capitals is for them to miss the playoffs this season. That could lead to some of the big changes they need.
  6. The Christmas break is over, hockey went out of our mind and our families entered. Now it's time to get back to work. The Sabres will host the Washington Capitals tonight at the FN Center 4 points out of a playoff spot, tied with the Caps in 10th/11th place. All the patrons of Pegulaville wanted from Santa this year was a healthy hockey club. Well Santa delivered, Brad Boyes will return tonight, along with Jochen Hecht. Hecht is a bit of a surprise seeing he was wearing a walking boot near the end of last week. Tyler Myers still seems about a week or so away still, also some other good news is Ennis, Gerbe, and Tropp were all on the ice today. This team is getting healthier, please no more injuries. Marc Gragnani will again be scratched on the back end and Paul Szezechura will likely be the scratch on the front end. Derek Whitmore was sent back to Rochester, he played well in Ottawa and didn't really factor into anything in Toronto. The Sabres had perhaps their all around best effort in the past few weeks of Toronto. However it resulted in a 3-2 loss. The Sabres dominated from the 2nd period on until Patrick Kaleta decided to be Patrick Kaleta and take a dumb no need penalty. The Leafs took momentum on the PP and the Sabres ended the period down 2-1 after dominating 17 minutes of the 2nd period. The Sabres tied it earlier in the 3rd and then Patrick Kaleta over back checked, resulting in Kadri putting the Leafs up 3-2 and the game would end that way. After the game a furious captain Jason Pominville talked about how before the game, after the 1st, and after the 2nd the team talked about not over back checking. The Leafs like to enter the zone with speed and then put on the breaks and look for the trailer. This is a perfect example of why I think Kaleta will be looking for a new squad next season or will be part of a trade. Lets see if tonight the team can avoid the mental errors that have crushed them. Expected lineup: Vanek-Hecht-Pommer Boyes-Roy-Stafford Kassian-Goose-Adam Kaleta-Ellis-McCormick Ehrhoff-McNabb Regher-Sekera Leopold-Weber Miller (Enroth) Prediction-A good win at home would be a good start to a turn around. The Caps are struggling too and are looking for points. Sabres get a boost from the return of Hecht and Boyes 4-2 Sabres.
