At Better With Popcorn, we not only provide reviews for movies, TV shows and video games, but also books. BWP and TCL contributor Bryan Wright (check out his articles here at TCL and at BWP) recently wrote a review for "Playing with Fire", a book written by former NHLer Theo Fleury. Obviously, he and Graham James have been in and out of the news for a while, but how was the book itself? Read the review by Bryan Wright to find out and head over to Better With Popcorn for more!
I finally got around to reading one of the most notable hockey books to come out in a ...
Heading into one of the better weeks in sports as the NHL regular season winds down and playoff spots are finalized, I thought I would give some thoughts on the season and things I look forward to heading into the playoffs.
One of the most distinctive voices in all of hockey belongs to CSN-Philly color analyst Bill Clement. His “Clementisms” such as “twine seeking missile” are favorite sayings among anyone who listens to him call a game.
Recently however, Clement is making headlines for another reason; he recently released a book titled “EveryDay Leadership” about his personal views on leadership and how it can help people be more successful.
The two fading teams in the West face-off tonight as the Flames host the Colorado Avalanche in their sixth and final meeting of the season. Once both in the heat of the battle for the 8th and final playoff spot, both teams have lost their games in recent stretches are now running out of chances to make up any ground. The Flames after another lackluster performance on Wednesday against the Kings have gone 1-3-3 in their last seven, while the Aves, who also only have 3 games remaining, have gone 0-3-1 in their last four games. This will be the sixth and final meeting between the clubs as Colorado has just one win against the Flames this year, coming in their last meeting, a 2-1 OT victory on Mar. 20th.
The Flames finally snapped their five game losing streak on Monday with a huge 5-4 victory over the Dallas Stars to once again give them a breath in their chase for the 8th and final playoff spot. Tonight, like their remaining five games, becomes the game of the year as the Los Angeles Kings come to town as just one point separates the two teams. This is the fourth and final meeting between the clubs with the Flames winning two of the first three match-ups. It’s a must win game for both clubs as with a win tonight, the Flames will find themselves tied for that elusive 8th position with the Phoenix Coyotes, while the Kings can jump ahead of the Yotes with a victory of their own.
