The Bolts

The NHL

  • As we wait for the new NHL team in Las Vegas to announce their name, let's look back on some team names that didn't quite make the cut. [The Score]
  • Montreal Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien could have Patrick Roy nipping at his heels if he doesn't perform well out of the gate this upcoming season. [Eyes on the Prize]
  • A (very) in-depth piece diving deep on the playoff series between the San Jose Sharks and the Nashville Predators. [The Energy Line]
  • Now that Mike Babcock has completed his first season as coach of the rebuilding Toronto Maple Leafs, let's look back and compare the Leafs under the direction of Randy Carlyle. [The Leafs Nation]
  • The term "maybe next year" has become all too common for the Edmonton Oilers. The never ending rebuild for the once-great dynasty has become frustrating for even passionate Canadian fans. [The Edmonton Journal]

The Sport

  • It is rare to find someone as driven and passionate about helping others as 74-year-old Lee Hathaway. The Space Coast native has been playing hockey since 1949 and regularly helps the local Space Coast Hurricanes sled hockey team. Oh, and he also drives neighbors and friends to their doctor's appointments when needed. [Space Coast Daily]
