    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/24/11 — Phil Kessel

    It wasn’t all that long ago when everyone in Leaf Nation was voicing their displeasure with the direction of the team, throwing waffles on the ice, chanting “Fire Wilson”, and talking about how the Boston Bruins were going to have themselves another top 5 draft pick courtesy of the Phil Kessel trade. My, how quickly […]

    The Phoenix Coyotes entered last night’s game in Tampa Bay riding an eight-game winning streak.  They left with a one-game losing streak, and it wasn’t a pretty loss either. The Lightning took advantage of a Phoenix team that appeared to be tired one night after earning a tough overtime victory in Philadelphia, as they cruised […]

    The New Jersey Devils are not the only bottom-feeding team using a hot streak to make one final push for the playoffs.  Surprisingly, the New York Islanders have put together quite the run of their own in February, as they entered yesterday afternoon’s game against the Florida Panthers having won seven of their ten games […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/20/11 — Kobe Bryant

    Playing in front of the hometown crowd at the Staples Center, Kobe Bryant had only two things on his mind once they tipped-off the 2011 NBA All-Star Game; win the game and capture honors as the Most Valuable Player.  Not only would he accomplish both feats, but he would do so in a rather impressive […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/17/11 — Derrick Rose

    In a battle between two of the NBA’s best teams, it was a career-best performance from the NBA’s best point guard that would prove to be the difference.  The San Antonio Spurs have three great guards of their own in Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Gary Neal, but they were no match for the Chicago […]

    Midway through the third period of last night’s game between the Washington Capitals and the Anaheim Ducks, it appeared as though “The Stat Line of the Night” would come down to a choice between two Ducks players; Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry.  Both players had recorded one goal and three assists each, and their team […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/15/11 — Dwyane Wade

    Heading into last night’s game against the Indiana Pacers, Dwyane Wade’s status remained uncertain as he was believed to be nursing a sprained ankle.  He would eventually suit up for the Miami Heat, and wasted little time putting any questions regarding his health to rest. Wade was on fire early and often, scoring 22 points […]

    Looking to keep pace with the Orlando Magic for fourth spot in the Eastern Conference standings, and a chance at home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs, the Atlanta Hawks knew that a game against the lowly Detroit Pistons was one they simply had to win.  They did just that, thanks in large […]

    The Heat and the Celtics hooked up in Boston on Sunday in what may very well be a preview of this year’s Eastern Conference finals.  The Celtics would likely invite such a scenario as they have dominated LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the rest of the South Beach boys this season, beating them […]

    Despite all the trade rumors and other distractions Carmelo Anthony has had to endure off the court, the Denver Nuggets forward continues to bring it on the court.  Heading into last night’s game against the red-hot Dallas Mavericks, Melo was averaging 32 points per game in his previous six games.  He would improve upon that […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/9/11 — Dwight Howard

    The Orlando Magic have struggled as of late, heading into last night’s game with only four wins in their previous nine contests.  They have also struggled on the road, sitting only one game above .500 away from the Amway Center.  That made the thought of earning a win in Philadelphia against a suddenly surging 76ers […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/7/11 — Mikael Samuelsson

    After an outstanding playoff run last year that saw him record 15 points in 12 games, Mikael Samuelsson has had a difficult time duplicating that production this season.  It is almost as if he has been on a season-long slump, but he finally appears to be breaking out of it as he entered last night’s […]

    After waiting in the wings as a back-up to Brett Favre, former first-round pick Aaron Rodgers finally had his opportunity to deliver a Super Bowl to the Green Bay Packers organization and their fans, and he would not disappoint.  Rodgers has been the most dominant quarterback throughout the NFL playoffs and that didn’t change during […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/3/11 — LeBron James

    At the beginning of the season the Miami Heat made it known to all that they are looking to win a Championship.  In order to do so, they will likely have to go through the Orlando Magic at some point during their playoff run.  That made last night’s meeting between the two teams that much […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 2/2/11 – Johan Franzen

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 2/2/11 – Johan Franzen

    If ever there was a good game for Johan Franzen to break out into one of his patented scoring sprees, last night’s was it.  His Detroit Red Wings were on the road visiting the slumping Ottawa Senators, who have had trouble scoring in recent games, but they erupted for five goals against the Wings’ Jimmy […]
