COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The NHL Stadium Series outdoor hockey game on Saturday between the Colorado Avalanche and Los Angeles Kings had some uh, “hiccups,” if you will – and none of it had to do with the game itself other than the fact that the Avs lost.
HMSHost has proposed to build a new St. Louis Blues themed restaurant, the Blue Note Bar and Grill, to replace the Chili’s in Terminal 2. The St. Louis Blues are the defending NHL Champions and are hosting the NHL All-Star Game in January 2020.
In addition, HMSHost will also bring a new concept to Terminal 1’s C Concourse and upgrades and refurbishments other spots.
That’s the story of the latest NHL Power Rankings, which arrive just weeks ahead of the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and feature yet another significant shuffling of the top five — er, the top four behind this season’s longstanding front-runner, the Tampa Bay Lightning.
No one is catching Tampa (and no one’s been able to for a long, long time), but that doesn’t mean the contenders right behind the Lightning are done climbing the standings. As we sit in mid-March, in fact, you might be able to make the case for at least a half-dozen teams as the No. 2 to Tampa. No joke
The 32-year-old center has 391 goals and 609 assists in 848 games with the Penguins, who selected him with the No. 2 pick in the 2004 NHL Draft. He is the 88th player in NHL history to reach 1,000 points, the first since Vancouver Canucks forward Daniel Sedin on Nov. 30, 2017
“Like, finally. Last couple weeks I’m a little bit nervous,” Malkin said. “It’s like a little bit slow, but it’s finally over, 1,000. I breathe normally. Thanking my teammates. Special day for my family, my friends.”

LAS VEGAS — Four minutes to 2 a.m., down a few buttons on his pink button-down and high on a cocktail of athletic glory, Stella Artois, life itself and God-knows-what-other-liquids, Alex Ovechkin danced on the Hakkasan stage as confetti rained and lasers flashed, a few feet from both his friend Tiesto and the Stanley Cup, singing along to a pulsing, EDM version of The Outfield’s “Your Love.”
Well, what would you do in his shoes?
First, the Washington Capitals won the NHL championship Thursday night. And then, as their red-rocking fans were passing out in a fit of euphoria back East, they took full advantage of the location in which they claimed the franchise’s first Stanley Cup. They hit the club, prize in hand, and they partied.
The Nashville Predators have one of the best new traditions in sports, chucking catfish on the ice during games, and the story behind this is what makes rivalries so great.
The Predators begin their march toward the Stanley Cup Final for a second straight year where they hope to finish what they started last year. The former expansion team has come a long way in two decades and enter the postseason as the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference and the winners of the President’s Trophy, as owners of the best record in the regular season.
