Winnipeg Jets face tall task in Ducks

If anyone was to predict that the Winnipeg Jets would make the playoffs before the season started, I may have laughed at them or accused them of lying. The task becomes even more unbelievable when taking into account the poor play by Winnipeg’s star player Evander Kane, his subsequent trade, and the suspension of their […] The post Winnipeg Jets face tall task in Ducks appeared...

Is Ondrej Pavelec the Worst Goalie in the 2015 Playoffs?

View image | The NHL playoffs begin this week.  I figured it’d be a good idea for TopSportsReport to have rankings to help fans understand the playoffs better, make their predictions better, and also, simply increase discussion surrounding this year’s playoffs. The goalie is one of the most important players on the ice, if not the most important.  Taking...

NHL Power Rankings: Ranking the Playoff Goalies

Ondrej Pavelec View image | Luckily for Pavelec, his personal play has dramatically improved as of late.  I still am a bit fearful that the Pavelec we saw struggle mightily earlier in the season may reappear.  I mean, Michael Hutchinson was, at one point, a much better option than Pavelec for the Jets.  I just really have my reserves about Pavelec...

With four games left in the regular season and a potential wild card spot at stake, it goes without saying that your best player should be on the ice.
