Cliff Dolgins NY Dolphins big 4-0 win on the road against Francois Lessard’s Cincinnati Swords combined with Jeff Murray’s Exton Igloos 2-1 loss on the road to Joshua Pohl’s Kansas City Ice Twisters allows NY to come to within 1 point of division leading Exton.

Mid West Division:

Francois Lessard’s 2nd place Cincinnati Swords 2 game home losing streak (getting shut out by NY 4-0 and losing a close one to Bill Kay’s Montreal Canadiens 3-2)  has allowed Scott Kalman’s Cleveland Barons to close the gap to only 2 points of the final playoff spot.  Cleveland has had big home wins over Montreal 4-2 and Doug Shirley’s Boston Whalers 4-0.  The Barons appear rejuvenated by the return of an old veteran who was so instrumental in their last season’s march to the playoffs.  The Cleveland Free Press reports after beating Les Habs:
-
In the third period the Barons ramp up the offense outshooting the Canadiens 20-12 and get goals from Kovalchuk and Richards and skate away with a 4-2 win.
-
Barons coach Scott Kalman had this to say after the game:
-
“I can’t say enough about our penalty kill units tonight as they all stepped up and really won the game for us tonight.”
-
Cleveland also activated future Hall of Famer Chris Pronger for tonights game as he will play the entire last home block for the end of his illustrious NHL, and FHL career. Pronger responded with a team leading 7 hits and added an assist to help the Barons.  Coach Kalman added this about his veteran defenseman:
-
“Great to have “Prongs” back on the ice tonight and it seemed to give us a huge emotional lift to have him back in the lineup. He was throwing the body around and making opposing teams forwards keep their heads up when he is on the ice.” “What a great leader and between himself and Chara we hope they have a great influence on a young defenseman like Voynov to prepare him to step up for us in the future.”
-
Joshua Pohl’s Kansas City Ice Twisters reach the century mark with 100 points for the 2nd year in a row after rallying to beat  Bryan Sakolsky’s Florida Everblades 6-5 in OT.  The House Organ of the Ice Twisters “Storm Front” reported:
-
Kansas City looked left for dead in this game, and they just couldn’t establish their back check allowing Florida to get out to big league. “I think Kip was a little flustered when we pulled him,” Coach Pohl stated. “He just wasn’t focused, and they were peppering him,” Pohl said. Lehtonen changed out Mikka in relief. Kansas City found itself in a 5 – 3 hole in the 3rd period of the game, but found away to get back in with 2 goals including 1 in the closing seconds of the game from Scottie Hartnell. On a beautiful assist from Nick Backstrom dropped a pass to Francois Beauchemin, and for the 2nd game in a row, the Ice Twisters D has had a game winning goal. Not real sure about this one, as the goaltending was shaky at best for Mikka Kiprusoff. Boston comes to town next. Kansas City saw their goals from Foligno (8), Hudler (24), Johannson (18), Kulemin (7), Hartnell (31), and Beachemin (6). Florida tallied goals from Weiss (21), Perron (15), Stewart (5), Versteeg (19), and Giordano (2).

West Central Division:

Andrew Smith’s Indianapolis Checkers are the front runner to win the division with an impressive March home game run.  On Indianapolis home 7 game stretch newly acquired Jarome Iginla had 3 goals, 1 assist, 4 points, and increased his +/1 from -1 to +3.  He also had 12 hits; and only incurred 2 extra PIM. As reported out of Indianapolis when Gamespeak Online caught up with manager/coach Andrew Smith:
-
ICH goes 6-0-1 during the month at home to temporarily take the Midwest Division lead. Now, to watch the road game results roll in. 
-
The Checkers are now at 43-29-4 with 90 points and 4 road games remaining against Gatineau City, McGregor, Johnstown, and Columbus.  Both Eric Baluh’s Johnstown Chiefs and Ashlee Pridemore’s Columbus Jaguars are at 72 and 70 points with 10 and 11 games left to play respectively.  They must win their home games against Indianapolis if they are to have any hopes of catching the Checkers.  They also need a little help from Gatineau City and McGregor too.  However Andrew Smith only knows too well how this lead could evaporate as last season he saw a similar lead evaporate when Indianapolis got edged out by Columbus for the final playoff spot by 2 points on the last game of the season (literally).
-
John Drach’s Winnipeg Saints started out the March month strong with a huge over time  win over Quebec 4-3 and an impressive win over Gatineau City 6-3, but then faltered in their final 4 games:
-
Johnstown 4 – Winnipeg 2
Indianapolis 4 – Winnipeg 1
McGregor 4 – Winnipeg 1
Indianapolis 3 – Winnipeg 2 (ot)
-
The late slide was no fault of Marian Gaborik who has had a nice 1 point per game month of March scoring 6 goals, 2 assists, and 8 points!  However, Winnipeg’s record stands at 38-31-8 and 84 points with 3 remaining games which are all on the road (against Gatineau City, Johnstown, and McGregor).   They can only hope to qualify for the playoffs by getting in as a Wild Card team.

West Division:

Johnny Francoeur’s Quebec Nordiques had a nice March home game slate despite first line center Jonathan Toews being limited to only 6 GP.  Gamespeak Online caught Manager/Coach Johnny Francoeur who commented:
-
“Great month at home for the Nordiques, hoping for a playoff push with a 6-1 record, only losing to Winnipeg.”
-
Nordique’s Milan Michalek and Henrik Zetterberg have both have played well in March.  Milan Michalek, so far in March, has 7 goals, 5 assists, and 12 points.  Henrik Zetterberg has 2 goals, 12 assists, and 14 points.
-
Both Lucky Luc Savard’s Gatineau City Bulldogs at 40-25-4 with 84 points and David Sayles LA Monarchs at 38-26-7 with 83 points are still within striking distance with 7 and 5 games in hand respectively on Quebec.

Jeff Murry’s Exton Igloos have gone a blistering 6-1 at home with a 42-17-2 and 86 points to extend to a 12 point lead on first place.  They are led by FHL point leader Evegeni Malkin who, on their recent 7 game tear scored 10 goals and 2 assists, raised his stats to 44 goals, 38 assists, 82 points, and a whopping +/- of +20. He blew by Detroit Bandit Matt Moulson 38 goals for the goal scoring lead in the FHL and places him as the leading candidate for the “Gunslinger Award” (most goals FHL regular season) and tied with Marian Gaborik (Winnipeg) for the “Sniper Award” (most power play goals regular season – 14 a piece).  Cliff Dolgin’s NY Dolphins,who are at 35-16-4 and 74 points, have gone so far 1-2 in February but have 6 games in hand on Exton and have yet to play their home games.
 -
Doug Shirley’s Boston Whalers continue their mid season woes going so far in February 0-2 while on the road (usually their area of strength with the FHL Leading best road winning PCT. .610) losing to their division rival Exton 6-3 and a newly retooled Cleveland 6-1.
 -
As reported by Exton Gazette:
 -
Behind a hat trick by Geno and 2 goals by Alfie, Exton cruises to a 6-3 win over Boston.
 -
The Cleveland Free Press reported:
 -
Cleveland comes away with a 6-1 win in what seemed to be their most dominating performance of the year. The big line is really clicking since the trade as Pomenville had 2 goals and an assist, Elias a goal and two assists, and Kovalchuk two assists to lead the Barons.
 -
The Whalers are led by their scoring tandem of Loui Eriksson 18 goals, 27 assists, 45 points, and +/- +3 and Patrick Kane 15 goals, 27 assists, 42 points, and +/- +9.

Mid West Division:

Scott Kalman’s Cleveland Barons look like they have been shot out of a cannon in February going (thus far) a whopping 5-1!  They now only trail Francois Cincinnati Swords who are in 2nd place in the Mid West by 3 points with a 29-23-6 record and 64 points. The Cleveland Free Press reported:
 -
The additions of Pominville and Richards have made a huge diference to the Barons so far in this block, but it will still be a huge uphill battle to try to overcome Exton, New York, K.C., or Cincinnati to make the playoffs. Just my luck to have 4 of the 5 top teams in points all in my confrence. If the Barons don’t  make the playoffs they won’t have anybody to blame but themselves. Their horrible start that saw them dead last in the entire FHL after two blocks will haunt them all year.  
 -
Joshua Pohl’s Kansas City Ice Twisters may have lost the Republic Conference #1 seed (so far) but at 38-14-3 with 79 points they still have a comfortable 13 point cushion lead on first place in the Mid West Division.  Moreover, they had a huge recent victory over cross conference rival NY.  As reported by the Storm Front:
 -
John Tavares continued to show why he wears the “C” for Kansas City this year in one of the most important games KC has played at the Storm Shelter so far. “Man they are good, but Johnny was Johnny on the spot today,” Coach Pohl said. This game was very even and exciting all the way through. The Dolphins and Ice Twisters found themselves on the PP and PK most of the game, and both netminders proved their worth. It really seemed to even out as the 3rd period went along all notted up 2 – 2. Kansas City found many scoring chances, but they couldn’t manage to get it past Halak. Even two breakaway chances were stopped cold by him. Kansas City finally broke through when Coach Joshua Pohl made a move to mix up the 1st and 2nd lines. Hartnell was subbed for Sedin who was obviously gassed, and that move created one more offensive chance that found the back of the NY net with 53 seconds left in the game. John Tavares (21) hit the GWG and also contributed with 15 faceoff wins. The Storm Shelter was still packed and a stading ovation for him on the 3 star annoucement was something to remember. In his return for injury, Nick Backstrom (10) scored the other goal for KC. Karlsson (13) and Stamkos (31) scored for NY. This was an important one KC, and we didn’t let them leave town with a point. We found a way to win it in regulation. Of course it doesn’t get any easier with Exton coming into town next, and it makes me wonder if KC has just left too much on the ice with wins over Columbus and New York. We will find out soon.

West Central Division:
 -
-
John Drach’s Winnipeg Saints have surged into 1st place in the highly competitive West Central Division.  The Saints 31-24-6 record with 68 points is 9 points better than defending Crystal Champions Ashlee Pridemore’s Columbus Jaguars 28-24-3 at 59 points who are in 2nd place (although the Jags have 6 games in hand).
 -
Andrew Smith’s Indianapolis Checkers are currently in a tie for 2nd place with the Jags at 28-23-3 record at 59 points. Leading scorers for their team are: Martin St. Louis 12 goals, 40 assists, 52 points, and +/- + 12, Radim Vrabata 25 goals, 15 assists, 40 points, and +/- +10, and Joe Pavelski 23 goals, 15 assists, 38 points, and +/- +7  Their real strength is in net with Jonathan Quick’s 21-17-0-3 record and 0.913 save PCT. and backup Pekka Rinne 7-6-0-0 record and 0.920 save PCT.  They have started out well on the road with huge road wins versus Gatineau City 4-3 SO, and Quebec 4-2.
 -
Gatineau City press reported:
 -
Jonathan Quick lived up to his name making 50 saves and leading his team to a 4-3 win in SO.Pavelski (2) and Glencross scored for Indy and Eberle (2) and Neal scored for the Bulldogs, St.Louis scored the extra goal in SO.
Other Notables: Giroux 3 assist and 16 faceoffs won; Ott 85% faceoffs
 -
In Quebec, Indianapolis goalie Pekka Rinne shined with 37 saves as the Checkers got scoring from 4 different players in the win: Shattenkirk (8), Ott (4), Anisimov (9), and Jones (16).
 -
Despite the recent good performance of the Checkers, if FHL season were to end today Indianapolis would not make the playoffs (they trail Los Angeles which has the last playoff spot if the FHL season were to end today by 3 points). The big question is will Mr. Smith keep both goaltenders or will he try and trade for some more fire power.  With the trade deadline (March 22, 11:59 PM CST) coming up it will be interesting to see if there are any moves coming out of Indianapolis!

West Division:

-
Johnny Francoeur’s Quebec Nordiques first place perch at 31-21-7 and 69 points in the West Division was short lived as Lucky “Luc” Savard’s Gatineau City Bulldogs surged by them with a 36-20-3 record at 75 points overall and with a 4-2-1 record so far in February.  Gatineau had a hard fought 4-3 home victory over what could be a potential Crystal Finals Match up against Cliff Dolgin’s NY Dolphins .
 -
Gatineau City Press reported:
 -
Gatineau took an early three goal lead in the first thanks to their big line of Eberle, Giroux and Neal each scoring one. The second saw both teams exchange goals, Lupul for NYD and Berglund for Gatineau. In the third, kessel and Clarkson put the Dolphins within one goal of Gatineau. NYD also saw one goal being overturned by videoreview with 3.29 left. Johnson shot never crossed the line. With 20 seconds left in the game, Perry on a breakaway………………………..save by Elliott! Gatineau takes the game 4-3.
 -
Notables:
 -
Halak 45 saves
New York 24 blocked shots
Gatineau 36 hits
New York 10 scoring chances
Dubinsky 76% faceoffs
Eberle five hits and three takeaways
New York very solid PK
 -
David Sayles Los Angeles Monarchs are still in 3rd place with 29-21-5 record and 63 points. As mentioned previously, if the FHL season would end today the Monarchs would be the final team in the playoffs in the National Conference.

Gamespeak Online – Start of Block 5 – February

Headlines:
 -
 -
East Division:
 -
The East has become a two team race for the division title.  Currently Jeff Murry’s Exton Igloos hold the honor at 36-14-2 and 74 points.  They are led by FHL point scoring leader Evegeni Malkin 34 goals, 35 assists, 69 points, and a whopping +/- of +17. However hot on their heels is Cliff Dolgin’s NY Dolphins who are at 34-14-4 and 72 points.  The Dolphins just completed a trade for Detroit Bandit defensive veteran Niklas Lidstrom for a title run and Detroit’s 4th round pick.  Detroit got in return forward prospect Lars Eller.  This could tip the balance of power in the East?  Steven Stamkos is the leader of the Dolphin team with with 30 goals 22 assists, 52 points, and a +/- +16.  “Trader Jeff” Murray has been quiet in the trade department all season.  This in stark contrast to last season where his Igloos led the FHL in trades.  Will there be another flurry of trades before the Trade Deadline the end of February out of Exton or will they stand pat?  Time will tell.
 -
Doug Shirley’s Boston Whalers continue their fire sale shipping off talented players as part of their rebuilding process.  First they shipped off Patrice Bergeron to Gatineau City for Marc Staal, Mark Scheifele, and Gatineau City’s #2 draft pick.  Then they concluded a late deal with Kansas City sending the famed veteran Jaromir Jagr for Kansas City Ice Twisters Jiri Tlusty, highly touted defensive prospect Luke Schenn, and KC #3 pick.
 -
 -
Mid West Division:
 -
Scott Kalman’s Cleveland Barons have just come off a huge trade where they acquired some major talent in RW Jason Pomenville, center Mike Richard’s, and F Matthew Lombardi from Gatineau City for Cleveland’s top prospect F Colin Wilson, center David Perron, and Cleveland’s 1st round pick.  Their first game together with Baron top gun Patrik (St. Patrick) Elias 21 goals, 26 assists, 47 points but a +/- -14 was against the Jesse Cheng’s McGregor Condors on February 2nd.   The Barons held off the Condors late 2 goal 3rd period rally for the 4-3 victory.  Pomenville contributed to the win with a thrilling penalty shot goal. Mike Richards had some fine defensive play as well.  The Cleveland Free Press reported:
 -
“In the third period it only took 18 seconds for Jason Pominville to steal the puck on yet another Condor turnover and break free on Bryzgalov but he is hauled down by Gonchar and is awarded a penalty shot. Pominville would score on the free pass and the Barons lead 4-1. Cleveland looks like they are headed to an easy win, but Timonen scores at 10:10, followed by Keith at 12:43 and quickly McGregor makes it a one goal game at 4-3. The Barons go into safe mode the rest of the way and manage to hold on and win 4-3.”
 -
However, the next day in McGregor, TX, the tables were turned on the Barons who dropped the game 4-1.  Despite Cleveland’s added firepower with their new additions, they have a lot of ground to make up.  Their record of 25-23-6 and 56 points has them on the outside looking in as far as the playoffs are concerned.  They are 11 points behind Francois Cincinnati Swords who are in 2nd place in the Mid West and the last team qualifying for the playoffs in the Republic Conference if the season were to end today at 31-18-3 and 65 points.  The Swords are led by Martin Erat’s 18 goals, 25 assists, 43 points, and a +/- of +6!
 -
Chad Pridemore’s Detroit Bandits are unfortunately mired in last place in the division with a 20-27-6 record and 46 points.  This puts them back in the FHL Draft lottery.  But they can take solace in the surprise performance of LW Matt Moulson who leads the FHL in goal scoring 37!  He was selected First Team FHL All Star.  Chad was seen shedding a tear when he had to give up beloved fan favorite Niklas Lidstrom.  The feeling was mutual as Lidstrom, in a prepared press release, told Gamespeak Online “I will miss playing in Hockeytown and Mr. Pridemore who has always been very supportive of me.  At the same time I look forward to helping my new team New York get back and win the Crystal.  That has always been a dream of mine and in the twilight of my career I see it as being a distinct reality.”
 -
Joshua Pohl’s Kansas City Ice Twisters  have been in first place in the Mid West since the beginning of the season and now also have the Republic Conference #1 seed with best overall record at 37-13-3 with 77 points.  Moreover, they also have the best overall record in the FHL putting them right back into contention for the FHL Commissioner’s Trophy (Best team total points scored for the season).  They recently gave up youth (see prior East Division notes) but added scoring veteran Jaromir Jagr through trading and had this press release from the Storm Front:
 -
“Kansas City confirms & welcomes the hockey hair of Jagr to the heartland.  He will most certainly fit into KC’s top 6 in what hopes to be another division crown and playoff berth,”
Joshua Pohl Kansas City Ice Twisters commented to the Storm Front.
 -
 -
West Central Division:
 -
John Drach’s Winnipeg Saints have leap frogged over Andrew Smith’s Indianapolis Checkers for 2nd place in the highly competitive West Central Division.  The Saints 26-22-6 record with 58 points is 1 point better than the Checker’s 27-23-3 and 57 points. Indianapolis does have one game in hand.  Winnipeg is lead by Marian Gaborik 26 goals, 32 assists, and 58 points and Patrick Sharp with 18 goals, 35 assists, and 53 points.  Only 2 points separate the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams in the West Central. Surprisingly the hapless McGregor Condors, who are in last place at 24-26-5 record and 53 points, are only 6 points off the pace. They are led by team Captain Anze Kopitar with his 20 goals, 29 assists, 49 points, and a +/- of +6.
 -
Defending Crystal Champions Ashlee Pridemore’s Columbus Jaguars are still sitting on top of the West Central with 28-23-3 record and 59 points.  This is even after a recent trouncing where Joshua Pohl’s Kansas City Ice Twisters laid a 7 spot on them.  Last year’s Crystal Finals MVP Tim Thomas was pulled after allowing 4 goals and only 10 saves.  His back up Nikolai Khabibulin didn’t fare much better allowing 3 goals and 10 saves.  This 7-0 loss has got to be a cause of concern for Ashlee although Columbus fans know that the Jaguars are just like their team name and can turn things around on a dime and sprint in the end.  On the other hand Joshua must is ecstatic since Kansas City is led by FHL top goalie Kari Lehtonen who leads the FHL in save PCT. 0.931.
 -
Eric Baluh’s Johnstown Chiefs reside in 4th place with a 27-26-0 record at 54 points.  Although they appear to be treading water near .500 in the middle of the division, they have all the pieces to make a run.  Alexander Ovechkin had a big 4 goal game on January 15 at the Tippee as Johnstown defeated Gatineau 7-3!  You could tell from the beginning it would be a special night for “Alexander the Great” as he scored at even strength 35 seconds into the game and then 55 seconds into the game to put the Chiefs up 2-0 in the first minute of the game. The Tippee was chanting “Ovie, Ovie!”  He then scored on the power play at 5:31 in the 1st period to notch a hat trick in the 1st period.  His 4th goal was at 11:46 into the first period.  After the first period the Chiefs led 7-1 and the competitive aspect of the game was over.  Gatineau back up goalie Cam Ward didn’t know what hit him allowing 5 goals against 10 saves!  He was then pulled for Brian Elliot who stabilized the situation only giving up 2 goals against 18 saves.
 -
 -
West Division:
 -
Johnny Francoeur’s Quebec Nordiques have vaulted to first place in the West Division with 31-21-7 record and 69 points. Eric Staal is 5th in the FHL in scoring and leads Quebec with 12 goals, 47 assists, and 59 points. His defenseman are playing heavy minutes to sustain this pace.  Shea Weber, Dion Phaneuf, and P.K. Subban lead the FHL in TOI at 1450, 1370, and 1355 minutes respectively.  Will they be able to sustain this pace and have enough in the tank for the playoffs?
 -
Lucky “Luc” Savard’s Gatineau City Bulldogs only trails them by 1 point in 2nd place with a 32-19-2 record at 68 points and 6 games in hand.  Gatineau has two players in the top 5 FHL in scoring in Claude Giroux (23 goals, 43 assists, and 66 points) and James Neal (22 goals, 37 assists, and 59 points).  Gatineau also just brought back “Downtown” Dustin Brown who will add further grit to their team and scoring.
 -
David Sayles Los Angeles Monarchs are also within striking distance in 3rd place with 28-20-5 record and 61 points. Monarch’s Zac Parise is 10th in FHL in scoring and leads the team in scoring with 23 goals, 27 assists, and 50 points.
 -
Kent Grey’s California Zephyrs continue to methodically build their team and last block 4 (January) made a surprising 5-1-0 run. The Zephyrs had impressive wins over power houses Exton (4-1), Gatineau City (4-1, 3-2), and Quebec (4-3 OT).  Young gun Tyler Seguin leads the team with 18 goals, 21 assists, 39 points, and a +/- of -29.  Center Sidney Crosby has played limited minutes as he still recovers from concussion symptoms.  Crosby, despite limited games played, has 6 goals, 9 assists, 15 points, and a +/- +1.  California won’t be at the bottom of the West Division much longer and can definitely play the spoiler role for teams visiting “The Great Wind Arena.”

Gamespeak Online – End of Block 2 (November)

Highlights end of block 2:

-

In the East the Exton Igloos continues to rule. Evegni Malkin continues to lead the FHL in points with 16 goals and 22 assists for 38 points. Moreover they are only 1 of 3 teams (other two are Boston, and Los Angeles) with winning records on the Road which is always tough to achieve in the FHL. They have an 8 point lead over 2nd place NY Dolphins led by manager/coach Cliff Dolgins whose team went 4-2 in November. Joffrey Lupul leads the Dolphins in scoring with 7 goals and 18 assists for 25 points. Steven Stamkos is 2nd in team scoring with 10 goals and 12 assists for 22 points. Corey Perry leads team scoring with 14 goals.

-

The Mid West Division is led by Kansas City Ice Twisters are a scintillating 13-0 at home. Kari Lehtonen has been a big surprise to the FHL leading the FHL in Save PCT. 0.935 and second in GAA 2.25. Despite all this Francois Lessard’s Cincinnati Swords are still nipping at the Twisters trailing by only 5 points. Sword Martin Erat leads the team in points with 12 goals and 11 assists. Henrik (The King) Lundqvist is a big part of Cincinnati’s success. The King is 3rd in save PCT. in FHL at .929, and 4th in FHL in GAA at 2.47.

-

The McGregor Condors made a late rally with several impressive wins against Columbus, Detroit (2), Winnipeg, and Johnstown to end up a surprising first place tie with the Johnstown Chiefs going into December in the West Central!!! Condor Captain Anze Kopitar has come into his own leading the team with 12 goals, 18 assists for 30 points. The often maligned Condor Ryan Getzlaf is tied in the FHL in takeaways with 26 (tied with Milan Lucic of the Florida Everblades). Eric Baluh’s Johnstown Chiefs also have 30 points. Led by surprise team point leader RW Justin Williams who has 8 goals and 20 assists for 28 points and Max Pacioretty who leads the team with 13 goals, Johnstown is challenging for the West Central lead.

-

In the West David Sayles Los Angeles Monarchs are flying high with 15-9-3 record and 33 points. They have gone an impressive 7-3-2 record in November. They feasted on below .500 teams with wins against Detroit (2), Florida, California (2), and Indianapolis (2). They also had impressive wins against top shelf teams splitting with Quebec and Johnstown. Zac Parise leads the team with 12 goals and 15 assists for 27 points.

Gamespeak Online 4/28 Edition – The Quest for the Crystal Post Season – Regular Season Finale

Gamespeak Online 4/28 Edition – The Quest for the Crystal Post Season – Regular Season Finale

-

At long last we are in the stretch run.  The Quest for the Crystal is closer than ever.  Here is how all the races are going:

 -

Republic Conference:  Only the Kansas City Ice Twisters have clinched a playoff spot.  The rest of the conference still have 5 teams contending for the final 3 playoff spots:

-

Montreal Canadiens:  Bill Kay has done well for his home slate of games and has gotten his beloved Les Habs in first place in the East Division. Henrik Sedin, who has been part of trade rumors throughout the FHL has responded to not being traded.  For block 6 he has scored 4 goals and has a total of 8 points in the last 14 games.

-

“Lots of three point games this block as Montreal goes 5-1-2 at home — splitting two OT games and two shootouts in the final block.,” Mr. Kay told Gamespeak Online.

-

Montreal has 2 games remaining both of which are road games.  The first game is against the Quebec Nordiques and the second game is at New York Dolphins.  If they can win against their division rival NY on the road and Exton loses a game, then they will clinch a Wild Card playoff spot at least.

-

Cincinnati Swords:  Francois Lessard has got his team peaking at the right time.  They are 7-2-0-1 in their last 10 games.  If they can win their final game against at Quebec, then  they will clinch a playoff spot.

-

Cleveland Barons:  Scott Kalman has also got his team playing well going 6-3-0-1 in the last 10 games.  They have 4 games left.  On the road they have to play Quebec, Johnstown, and Columbus of which the later two are fighting for playoffs spots as well.  They have one home game against the recently very hot California Zephyrs.  It won’t be an easy path.  However if they can go 3-1, they will clinch a playoff spot.

-

Exton Igloos:  Jeff Murray has traded his way nearly into a playoff spot.  Despite giving up Duncan Keith, Louie Eriksson, Cory Schneider, etc., etc. they are surprisingly still in the Quest for the Crystal.  They are in 2nd place in the East Division (only 3 points off the division leading Montreal Canadiens).

-

New York Dolphins:  Cliff Dolgins defending Crystal Champion has got his work cut out for him.  The good news is that the NY Dolphins has 5 games remaining and 4 are at home.  The remaining games for this season NY:  March 25 Gatineau City; March 27 Detroit; March 29 Exton; March 30 @Boston; and April 3 Montreal.

 -
NY can squeak in but will need some help.  As stated, Montreal only has 2 games left (all away games) in the season and they need to lose both games for NY to have a chance to get in.  Some more good news is that they play them at home in their season finale.  Moreover Montreeal plays Quebec at Le Colisee so there is a good chance they will lose this away game.  Exton has 3 more games left in the season and they need to go 1-2 (or worse)for NY to have a chance to make the playoffs.  Fortunately NY has a March 29 date to play them at home.  Finally, it would also help if Cleveland loses it’s last 4 games (espcially if NY is angling for the Wild Card).  The easiest way for the Dolphins to get in is to win the East division.  Amazingly they can still pull it off despite their abysmal road record the prior block 5!!!  With 3 games in hand the mantra in NY is just “Win baby, just win!”
 -
 -
National Conference:  Surprisingly no team has clinched a playoff spot.  Here are the teams with a shot at the playoffs in order of most likely to least likely:
-
-
Quebec Nordiques:  Johnny Francoeur’s Quebec Nordiques have pretty much held onto first place in the West Division for most of the season.  Sitting at 92 points they are in a good position to win the division.  They are also in contention to win the Commissioner’s Trophy for best FHL record.  Kansas City has completed their season and sit at 104 points.  The Nordiques would need to go 7-1 to get 106 points and clinch home ice advantage throughout the playoffs.  Their home games include Montreal, Winnipeg, Cleveland, Johnstown, Indianapolis, Columbus, and Cincinnati of which 6 of the 7 teams are contending for the post season.  It won’t be an easy path and the tie breakers are in Kansas City’s favor.  But if any team can pull it off are the Nordiques who are 25-5-0-3 at Le Colisee.  For what it is worth – one win the Nordiques will clinch a playoff spot.
-
-
Indianapolis Checkers: Andrew Smith has done his job exorting his team to a scintillating 6-2-0 record at home.  However now he plays the waiting game as the returns from the road come in.  Road games at Boston (3/9); Quebec (3/22); Gatineau City (3/23), and another game against division rival McGregor (4/1) close out the season.  Mr. Smith’s Checkers are still in first place with 86 points in the West Central Division.  But both the Columbus Jaguars and the Johnstown Chiefs are breathing down Indianapolis neck with 84 and 83 points respectively.  If the Checkers can go 3-1 in their final away games, then any Columbus or Johnstown loss they will clinch a playoff spot.  -
-
Gatineau City:  Lucky Luc Savard will need to live up to his moniker as the Gatineau City Bulldogs sit at 87 points.  He is only 5 points off the pace for first place in the West behind the Quebec Nordiques.  With 8 games left to play also there is a possibility the Bulldogs can even win the division.  With home games against California (which has been playing scintillating hockey behind Kent Grey’s neutral zone trap), Columbus Jaguars, Indianapolis Checkers, Johnstown Chiefs, LA Monarchs, and their season finale against none other than the Quebec Nordiques 4/3 it should be an interesting stretch run!
-
-
Columbus Jaguars:  Ashlee Pridemore has been chasing all season long.  She is finally in view of the “Promised Land” but as the old cliche goes “It is so close, yet so far away.”  The Jaguars have gone 4-3-0-3 record over their last 10 games.  They have one home game left against their old foes McGregor Condors.  Gamespeak Online was given a press release from the Columbus office which stated “It has been a rough ending to the Jaguars last three games only earning 3 out of 6 points!”  The Jaguars pretty much need to win their 4 remaining games and hope for Indianapolis or Gatineau City to go in a big losing streak.  The good news is that they have 2 home games (McGregor 3/19 and Cleveland 4/2) to make a run.  Their remaining away games are against Gatineau City (3/20) and Quebec (3/26).
-
-
Johnstown Chiefs:  Eric Baluh’s massive trade with Gatineau City may pay off.  Sitting at 83 points with 5 games left they must win and hope that Columbus or Indianapolis trips up at the end.  Gamespeak Online projects if the Chiefs can get 8 points out of 10 available they should have a good chance for the post season.  Of the top 5 contending playoff teams their remaining schedule is theoretically the easiest.  They play 3/19 at Quebec but then play home games against 3/23 Florida, 3/26 Winnipeg.  They go back on the road and play 3/27 Gatineau City and then their season finale 4/3 against Cleveland.  They should be able to win against Florida and Winnipeg but the two road games against the West Division teams will be tough.  Their season finale against Cleveland at home should be an interesting game.  Based on probability, the Chiefs will go 3-2 and get 6 points.  They will need Columbus to go 2-2 or worse to get in which is quite possible.  Max Pacioretty has been leading the charge with 6 goals and 12 points in the last 10 games he has been with the Chiefs.
-
-
McGregor Condors:  Jesse Cheng’s Condors have a remote chance to get into the playoffs.  Sitting at 78 points they will have to win all their final 6 games and hope Indianapolis, Columbus, and Johnstown don’t get to 90 points.  The only good news for the Condors is that they have a pretty reasonable home schedule as shown below:
 -
Mar 15 Exton; Mar 19 @Columbus; Mar 22 California; Mar 29 Florida; Apr 1 Indianapolis; and Apr 3 Winnipeg.
 -
Gamespeak Online caught up with Jesse Cheng as his team prepares to play the Exton Igloos later today.  “As I said before, our playoffs have started.  The team knows what we need to do.  Sure we are all beat up but so is everyone else.  There are no more excuses and we just got to keep winning like we did last night against Indianapolis.  Sure our chances are remote but we have gone 5-0 before at home so it’s not impossible.  We will need some help and the only way we will get in is to win the division.  Fortunately we got one more game against the division leader Indianapolis.  I know Mr. Smith will have his team ready to play and has Pekka Rinne slated to start against us.  But we can’t even think of that game since we’ve got Exton coming up and they are fighting hard to get in too.  It will be interesting to see how Duncan Keith reacts to playing his old team.  I know he will be fired up for this game.  So will Craig (Adams), and Sergei (Gonchar) too.”

Gamespeak Online 4/10 issue

Gamespeak Online:
 -
East Division – Cliff Dolgins defending Crystal Champion NY Dolphins have had an auspious start in block 6 going 2-0-1 on the road for 5 points and 3rd place tie with Boston with 71 points!  Huge road wins over Exton 4-2 and a shoot out win over McGregor 2-1 have kept their playoff hopes alive.  NY managed to salvage 1 point in a 4-3 OT loss to last place Florida who has been playing well of late.
 -
Mid West Division – Francois Lessard’s Cincinnati Swords also make a run with home shoot out loss to Exton 2-1; and wins over Kansas City 5-3; Johnstown 2-1; and Los Angeles 2-1!  The Swords are now 35-25-8 with 78 points and have taken over the last playoff spot from Bill Kay’s Montreal Canadiens at 37-28-1 and 75 points!  Joshua Pohl’s Kansas City Ice Twisters are on the verge of making history being the first team in the Mid West Division to have a 100 point season.  They have been in a losing streak of late dropping games to division rival Cincinnati 5-3 and Cleveland 3-0 on the road.  Then they dropped a home game to Chad Pridemore’s last place Detroit Bandits in 5-4 OT game!  However when the Ice Twisters hit the road they got a big win against Boston 3-2 to put their record at 45-21-5 and 98 points (2 points short of history in the Mid West).  Last year’s Commissioner’s Trophy winning record still belongs to the Montreal Canadiens at 113 points!
 -
West Central Divison – Ashlee Pridemore’s Columbus Jaguars had a huge home win over Johnny Francoeur’s Quebec Nordiques 7-2!  Quebec’s Carey Price was chased from the game after allowing 6 goals on 26 shots.  Columbus then beat Doug Shirley’s Boston Whalers on the road 3-1.  However they got blasted when Boston visited Columbus 6-2!   Boston went 3-9 on the power play with Ruutu getting 2 goals for the Whalers to lead the way.  Columbus now sits at 36-28-6 with 78 points and trail Eric Baluh’s Johnstown Chiefs by only 1 point who currently hold onto the last playoff spot.  The McGregor Condors look like they are on life support with road losses to California 3-1 and Detroit 4-2 and then a shoot out loss to the NY Dolphins 2-1.  Manager/Coach Cheng told Gamespeak Online “We have a must win game against the Johnstown Chiefs coming up!  It’s do or die now!”
 -
West Division – The Quebec Nordiques are still at 90 points but with 11 games left to play.  They still have a good shot at the Commisioner’s Trophy as well for best regular season FHL record and home ice advantage throughout the playoffs.  Luc Savard’s Gatineau City Bulldogs have slipped into the 3rd seed in terms of playoff positioning at 81 points!

Gamespeak Online 4/8 Update

Gamespeak Online Addendum:

 -

Republic Conference:

 -

East Division:  NY goes 1-0-1 on the road to go to 32-30-5 and 69 points!  NY got big shoot out win over McGregor to stay alive in their hunt for the last playoff spot (4th seed) in the Republic Conference!  At 69 points they trail Montreal at 75 points who currently hold onto the last playoff spot in the Republic Conference.  Florida plays well this block finishing their home games and posting a current 29-34-9 record with 67 points. 

 -

Mid West Division:  The KC Ice Twisters are on their quest to reach 100 points.  At 43-20-7 with 93 points this is attainable and may be what they need to win the Commissioner’s Trophy and that coveted home ice advantage throughout the playoffs!  They currently are ahead of Quebec which is at 90 points.  Unfortunately KC has not been able to pick up any wins on the road.  They got pounded on the West Coast LA Monarchs 7-2, lose in OT to Florida 5-4, and lose to divsion rival Cincinnati Swords 5-3. 

 -

National Conference:

-

West Central Division:  The Johnstown Chiefs now hold onto the last playoff spot (if the season were to end today) at 79 points.  Columbus is hot on their heals with 74 points.  McGregor too at 72 points.  Johnstown had a big road win against LA Monarch 3-2 with Luongo making 35 saves and Kaberle notching the GWG with under 3 minutes left in regulation.  However they were upset by the Florida Everblades 5-4 with a big game by FLE Giordano 1 goal and 3 assists!  Tuukka Rask had 34 saves but gave up 5 goals.  With only 5 home games this block and 10 away games there is a window of opportunity to be overtaken. 

 -

West Division:  Quebec wins 2-1 over LA to maintain pace with KC for the Commisioner’s Trophy with a 41-19-8 record and 90 points.  Gatineau City also maintains pace with 5-2 win over LA!

Gamespeak Online 4/5: The Outsiders and the Dark Horses!

Gamespeak Online 4/5:  The Outsiders and the Dark Horses!

 -

Things are looking pretty bleak for two teams that made the FHL Playoffs last year.

 -

In the National Conference last year’s West Central Division Champion the McGregor Condors are on the outside looking in with 69 points and 14 games left.  The last team qualifying for the FHL National Conference Playoffs, if the season were to end today, is the Gatineau City Bulldogs with 75 points and 2 games in hand on the Condors with 16 games left.  The only way for McGregor to make it in is if Lucky Luc’s Bulldogs go 6-10 for this block and for the Condors to go 10-4 and squeak in at 89 points (Gatineau City controls all the tie breakers so a tie does the Condors no good).  Seeing that the Condors have never had that high a winning PCT. and have no common games with Gatineau City things look bleak indeed.  Also the Condors only have 8 home games.  That’s the bad news.  The good news is that they have home games against California three times and Florida once.  However those teams have been hot lately so that is not necessarily a good thing.  Coach Cheng gave up some big prospects (Stepan and Cowen) to get Duncan Keith, Sergei Gonchar, and company over for the big push.  While Keith and Gonchar have helped they will likely not be enough.

 -

In the Republic Conference defending Crystal Champion NY Dolphins are in a similar predicament.  They have 66 points with 15 games left to play.  In order to get in they need to catch, if the playoffs were to end today, the last qualifying team for the post season Bill Kay’s Montreal Canadiens at 75 points.  The bad news is that NY has got some tough teams to face including Kansas City and Gatineau City.  Furthermore, if Montreal plays just under .500 hockey say going 7-9 for their block, then NY would need to go 12-2 to get the last playoff spot.  The Dolphins have not had that high a winning PCT. this year (although they have come close at home with 0.800 winning PCT.).  The good news is that Cliff’s Dolphins have 10 home games this final block which includes 2 games (home and away series) against Exton and to end the season 2 games (home and away series) against Montreal (April 2nd and 3rd).  Also working in their favor is Montreal has a poor road record.  Cliff also gave up some big future talent (ex. Kadri, and Boedker) to bolster their team for a run and will see if it pays off.

 -

There are two dark horses that have a good chance to sneak in!

 -

In the Republic Conference Mid West Division Francois Lessard’s Cincinnati Swords are quietly sitting at 71 points.  After entering the FHL with a big splash news conference the final block of last season, they have been quietly playing their games.  While Kansas City and Cleveland have been getting all the press in the Mid West, Cincinnati are within striking distance to get the last playoff spot from Les Habs at 75 points.  Circle March 21 home game for the Swords against the Canadiens.  This is a must win game for Francois.  They have been able to do this with FHL First Team All Star goalie Henrik (The King) Lundqvist and FHL Second Team All Star defenseman Dustin Byfuglien.  The Swords also play Kansas City 3 times (2 at home and 1 on the road).  They also play Gatineau City twice (home and away) and Quebec on the road.  They do get to play California twice this block as well.

 -

The 2nd dark horse candidate is Ashlee Pridemore’s Columbus Jaguars.  She has been pegged since the pre-season as A++ goaltending, D- defense, and B offense.  Well she now sits at 74 points which is surprisingly only 1 point off Lucky Luc Savard’s Gatineau City Bulldogs which, if the season were to end today, holds the last playoff spot at 75 points.  The bad news is that Gatineau City has 3 games in hand (Columbus 67 games played, Gatineau City 64 games played).  The good news is that Columbus has a record this block of 2-2 on the road.  A possible scenario for her to get into the playoffs is for Lucky Luc’s Bulldogs go 7-9 for this block and for the Jaguars to go 8-5 and just squeaking in with 90 points.

 -

FHL Webpage has been updated today to latest games played.  Good luck in this final block to all!
