“ Moulson’s alma mater, Cornell, has a history of producing hockey TV analysts, notably including Ken Dryden, who was in the booth with Al Michaels to call the 1980 Winter Olympics tournament.”

Famed analyst Ken Dryden, but it took him over a decade to make a name for himself.

A really terse sendoff. I hope that they’re off to bigger and better things.

Here’s a really fascinating article about them in The Athletic, March 2021. It has very nice things to say about Mike Schafer and Cornell.

Malinski did return to the game after getting some repairs. The hit itself didn't actually look too terrible: it was compounded by Malinski tripping and falling into the boards at the same time that MacDonald was finishing his check.

Ben Berard scored his first professional goal Wednesday for Texas Stars. He was Third Star after the unassisted goal proved to be the game winner.

Anthony Angello also had an unassisted goal the same night in a separate AHL game for Milwaukee.

Jeff Kubiak assisted on a Cole Bardreau goal that ended up the game winner earlier this evening.

Max Andreev had the game winning goal tonight for Kansas City in the ECHL. In 27 pro games this season he has nine goals and 24 assists for 33 points!

Way to go boys.

Malinski just scored to put Colorado up 3-2 over the Bruins in the second period. The Avs broadcasters were raving about how “Makar-like” his play was (walking the blue line and shaking the Boston defender before wiring home a wrister.)

As a Bruins fan, not great timing for me, but Malinski scored his 2nd career goal on a nice shot through traffic from the point to put Colorado up 3-2 near the end of the 2nd.

It wasn't to make room for Parise. He was sent down because Jack Johnson and Bo Byram returned and because the Avs are entering the All Star break. Jared Bednar plans to use Malinski in a rotation the rest of the season. He has firmly established himself as the #7.

Malinski got the callup on Sunday and my prayers yesterday were answered. He wasn't in the Av's projected lineup for last night's Devils game at the Rock, but he dressed! I was flying in to Newark and believed Bednar, who has had high praise for Sam, would get him in there, especially in the second game of a back-to-back. Gotta believe! Sam logged 12 minutes on 15 shifts. He went hard all night. His skating was silky smooth. Too bad he wasn't able to bury a feed in the slot midway through the third. Caught his eye with my CU hoodie on while standing at the glass behind the net during quick skate-around before second period. Great night! Anyone else there?

Per CBS Sports: Sam Malinski was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Saturday. Malinski was scratched for Saturday's 4-0 loss to the Panthers. It was his third scratch in four games since the All-Star break, so it's no surprise he's going down to the Eagles to get some playing time. Malinski has emerged as the top call-up option when the Avalanche need reinforcements.

Jacob MacDonald was profiled by a San Jose fan site as a model for the future of "position-less hockey" due to his versatility in shifting back and forth between forward and defenseman, even during a single game. Lots of good quotes from his coach (David Quinn) on that role as well:
[sanjosehockeynow.com]

The subsequent waiving of JMD aside, it seems to me that, against Yale and Brown, Robinson was being given the green light to move up and help out the attack while another player (who?) moved back to cover a point.

Did anyone else see this?

i didn't process it as such but ... definitely. the team is embracing his ability as a playmaker.

Isn’t this always how it works with defensemen cycling down low? Robertson may do it more than the others, but I think every defenseman will occasionally take the puck down low while a forward covered for him at the point.

I think the point is that he's being given more free rein lately. I think Kaldis had more liberty than Kempf does too, without this being a criticism of Kempf.

I think Rego does it more traditionally, rotating up on a particular set play, while Robertson is continually at the ready to join the play as a fourth forward, like Ray Bourque, Denis Potvin, and Larry Robinson played.

I've seen Kempf jump in on the play pretty often too, although he definitely lacks the offensive abilities of Robertson (or Rego - who I still feel is getting more powerplay time than he should).

As did Lodboa, Orr, Pattison, Giuliani...all converted forwards...back in the day.

I also think this is interrupted by teams that forecheck us hard, explaining why apparently lower skill aggressive squads like Dartmouth and Yale give us fits.

NC$$ contenders all forecheck aggressively, so we need to figure it out and keep our poise under that pressure.

He's not the only one. Various D have even skated behind the goal. I noticed this in Troy and possibly in Schenectady.

Fun to watch and also fun to watch forwards drop back to defend in these situations.

I'm a Penguins fan. Obvious skill difference between NHL and NCAA aside, Cornell's power play is way better than the Pens'. Last night, Pens managed a PP with one shot attempt, zero shots on goal, and gave up a breakaway goal to the other team's best player when he exited the box.

The Pens retired Jagr's number recently and had him on the broadcast. He said the players weren't selfish enough and kept looking to pass rather than shoot.

Cornell's PP is too passive and too content to shuffle the puck around the umbrella, but I don't fault them for not shooting enough. Firing a shot into a defender's shins from the point is bad. We need to have more motion away from the puck and work the puck down low to generate chances, and for the love of god do something other than force the puck from the point to down low to the bumper, because everyone knows that low puck is going to the bumper.

The Pens' PP keeps generating good looks by doing the above and then just... not shooting. It's Ben Simmons disease or something. Like they're only allowed to shoot off the pass and only when the pass is a ten out of ten crosscrease sure thing.

I should also mention that the power play with 1 shot attempt and 0 shots on goal leading to a breakaway was against the Islanders, who have the worst pk% in the nhl.

While I agree that firing a shot into the defender’s shins from the point is bad, I disagree that Cornell is shooting enough. In my view, they really aren’t. Last weekend the PP was better, but prior to that Cornell would go entire PPs without attempting a shot. I’m pretty sure Cornell could create a shooting lane from the point if they tried, rather than being fully committed to passing. Cornell has tried to work the puck down low, but nothing has been available. If they had simply fired the puck on net instead of unsuccessfully trying to work the puck down low/ultimately to the bumper, they could have easily created a tip or rebound which would cause chaos around the net, leading to the PK team scrambling and getting out of position. It’s much easier to score on the PP when the PK is out of position, and Cornell doesn’t do nearly enough to make that happen. Shooting is one of the best way of doing so.

I don’t disagree, but to me, the biggest issue is a lack of movement both with and away from the puck. Everyone seems to stand still and then they move the puck around. I wouldn't have a problem throwing more pucks on net when they have the chance.

They are dovetailing problems. Too much PP time is spent listlessly passing around the perimeter because nobody is cutting through the heart of the defense to force adjustments which brings unwanted attention to the fact that 90 seconds have passed, the puck hasn't left the zone, and still nobody has taken a shot just to change things up. Hell, shooting into someone's shins may get a guy on the ground and deflect the puck someplace interesting that leads to a shot. Yelling "SHOOOOT" isn't a solution but it's not NOT a solution.

There were a bunch of really nice passes last week that were very creative, the pass didnt quite get completed or we missed or we tanked the shot.

How much hockey are people watching to compare to what other teams do? some really good PP dont do anything but pass either.

every game we watch has another team's power play! anyway, i do agree that the last couple of weeks have been an improvement over the early season.

We don't even have to go that far. What I see is puck movement, even fast movement, between players who when they receive the pass are and remain stationary. If they just moved a little on their skates, now the D has to keep track of passing lanes that continually change, rather than just finding the nearest point intersecting a fixed line.

When you see good pp units, and when we have had them, they can walk (skate) and chew gum (stickhandle) at the same time, and it makes the D reactive and behind a tempo. That's when you can tic-tac-toe to the man lower down who is suddenly free because the passer moved.

I do not think guys like Robertson, Castagna, and Bancroft lack the skill.

Apparently, she also plays for Ottawa in the new Professional Women's Hockey League, which I just learned did not bother to choose nicknames or logos for its teams before starting play this season.
