Ritter’s Rant: News And Notes From Around The NHL

May 3rd, 2010 No Comments

Written By: Mark “The Hard Hitter” Ritter Say It Ain’t So Sidney… It’s been a long time since we witnessed Sidney Crosby having a complete breakdown, hasn’t it? Crosby, who is often referred to as “Cindy” for all the bellyaching and crying he did in the early part of his career had gotten away from that sort of thing…that is until the Sunday afternoon tilt between Crosby’s Pittsburgh Penguins and the Montreal Canadiens. Frustrated by the tight-checking Canadiens, Crosby took it out on one of his sticks, slamming it off the Canadiens net in a fit of rage, shattering the stick to pieces and making a arse of himself in the process. It wasn’t one of Crosby’s prouder moments, in fact, it was downright stupid and he is lucky he didn’t receive an unsportsmanlike penalty for his actions. One thing the Habs have proven

All in all it was a pretty good weekend of playoff hockey. Although it’s no surprise to me, the Sharks take a 2-0 series lead into Detroit tomorrow night where the “just not quite close enough” Red Wings will try to keep them from taking a stronger hold on a series that had most people picking the Wings in five!  So much for the experts .  The Montreal Canadiens are the Cinderella story of these 2010 Playoffs so far, having already taken the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Washington Capitals to seven games and defeating them. Mike Cammalleri has been an absolute killer for the Habs. Third in these playoffs with 13

Andrei Markov Out Indefinately: Which Defensemen Will Step Up?

May 2nd, 2010 No Comments

The Montreal Canadiens have announced that defensive leader Andrei Markov is out indefinitely with what they are calling “a lower body injury.” At this time there is no definitive report out there that sheds light on Markov’s injury—it’s the playoffs, good luck getting a straight answer! While it is unclear as to whether or not Markov will make it back for the Canadiens series against the defending Stanley Cup Pittsburgh Penguins, given the severity of the hit he absorbed at the hands of Matt Cooke and the apparent damage that was incurred by Markov’s knee, one can expect that he may in fact be done for the series, if not the rest of the season. There are not a lot of players that can bring to the table the skills that Markov can on a nightly basis. With that in
