<p><img src="http://i.imgur.com/Bg2LbaN.jpg" alt="" width="360" height="284" /></p> <p>Hockey fans are always looking for ways to increase goal-scoring in the NHL, especially as the numbers drop back down to all-time low levels.</p> <p>The playoffs usually see the number of goals drop even lower as competition gets better and teams play a more cautious game.</p> <p>But so far in the 2013-14 playoffs goal-scoring is on the rise as teams are averaging nearly six goals per game through the first round, a level we haven't seen in the league in almost a decade. We have a few theories as to why those numbers have gone up so far, and you can read about them <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://proicehockey.about.com/od/nhlnewsscoresstats/fl/Why-are-teams-scoring-more-in-the-playoffs.htm">right here</a>.</p>Goal scoring on the rise in playoffs so far originally appeared on About.com Hockey on Wednesday, April 30th, 2014 at 17:49:05.Permalink | Comment | Email this

<p>The Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers are playing one of the three Game 7s in the Stanley Cup Playoffs on Wednesday night just 24 hours after the Flyers' 5-2 Game 6 win.</p> <p>We know Henrik Lundqvist should be in net for the Rangers, but do the Flyers have a tough decision to make when it comes to their starting goalie?</p> <p>It's probably going to be Steve Mason, but given his track record in back-to-back starts shouldn't there at least be some consideration given to starting Ray Emery? We <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://proicehockey.about.com/od/nhlnewsscoresstats/fl/Steve-Mason-in-back-to-back-starts.htm">take a look at that question right here</a>.</p>Should the Philadelphia Flyers start Steve Mason in Game 7? originally appeared on About.com Hockey on Wednesday, April 30th, 2014 at 02:21:40.Permalink | Comment | Email this

<p><img src="http://i.imgur.com/kRzMIhH.jpg" alt="" width="360" height="270" /></p> <p>The Columbus Blue Jackets simply could not match up with the Pittsburgh Penguins in their first round playoff matchup and were eliminated on Monday in a thrilling 4-3 Game 6 loss.</p> <p>The good news for the Blue Jackets is they finally seem to have a direction and a young star that can be the focal point of their franchise for years to come.</p> <p>That star? Center Ryan Johansen.

<p>For the second time in three years the Detroit Red Wings failed to advance past the first round of the playoffs. Usually, this would be a bad stretch for a team that is used to competing for and winning Stanley Cups. But this Red Wings team was a little different than teams of the past as it not only overcame a nearly unprecedented run of injuries, but was also mixing a lot of fresh faces and young talent into its lineup.</p> <p>That young talent, led by Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Tatar and Tomas Jurco c<a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://proicehockey.about.com/od/nhlnewsscoresstats/fl/A-new-era-for-the-Detroit-Red-Wings.htm">ould be the foundation of a new chapter in Red Wings history</a>.</p> <p>Even in defeat, this was an important year for the Red Wings franchise because of their development.</p>Red Wings eliminated, but brighter days are ahead originally appeared on About.com Hockey on Sunday, April 27th, 2014 at 15:26:52.Permalink | Comment | Email this

<p>Injuries are an unfortunate reality in the NHL, and the team that is lucky enough to avoid them in the playoffs is going to have the best chance of putting together a lengthy run toward the Stanley Cup.</p> <p><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://proicehockey.about.com/od/nhlnewsscoresstats/fl/Three-injuries-that-impacted-first-round-of-NHL-playoffs.htm">These three injuries</a>, however, have been pretty big blows to their team.</p> <p>Would the Tampa Bay-Montreal series have been any different with Ben Bishop in net? Maybe not, but at least the Lightning would have had a chance to win a game. Is Tyson Barrie's injury going to be the undoing of the Colorado Avalanche? And can Henrik Zetterberg's return help salvage something for the Detroit Red Wings?</p>Which injuries have hurt playoff teams the most? originally appeared on About.com Hockey on Friday, April 25th, 2014 at 13:58:26.Permalink | Comment | Email this
