youthful monarch hockey continues to mesh down regular season stretch


monarch has long been a perennial chsaa hockey power—the coyotes earned state runner-up finishes each of the past four seasons—so it was no surprise when the team was highly-ranked before the start of this season.nor was it a surprise when the team outscored its first two opponents, standley lake and pueblo county, by a combined 26-1 margin.but unlike in winters past, when the coyotes have appeared largely invincible throughout the regular season, this year monarch (9-3, 5-2 foothills conference) has already shown cracks via losses to fort collins on dec. 10, ralston valley on dec. 17 and regis jesuit on jan. 7 in a rematch of the 2015 title game.the graduation of 17 seniors will do that to a program, as coach jimmy dexter’s squad is still adapting to the new roster this season. leading th

with all-star break over, kings resume their season-long playoff hunt


the all-star break is often seen as the point when nhl teams catch their collective breath and return to make a final push to the playoffs. but for the kings, who are a point behind calgary for the second west wild card spot and have three games in hand on the flames, competition for a postseason spot has been going on for quite a while.“you look at it, we’ve been pushing for the playoffs the entire year. we’ve been in the battle. so i don’t think the mind-set changes,” defenseman alec martinez said after the kings held their morning skate at gila river arena in a nce of tuesday’s game against the coyotes.“certainly, it’s that time of year when it’s moving day. these are important games, especially during this stretch. you look at it, our team, we have six games before we go on a break aga

a playoff schedule breakdown - fantasy hockey blog at razzball.com


hey everyone!  i’m back following the all-star break and with no games since last thursday (recapped here), i need something else to talk about!  well, i thought something that would be very helpful is an in-depth look at the schedules for every team in the nhl the last four weeks of the season.  i picked those weeks because at least the last three weeks (the last 4 if you’re in an rcl or any league with two week long playoff matchups) are your playoffs in head to head leagues.  by giving you this information now, this gives everyone a few options.  one, it helps everyone make decisions at the bottom of your roster.  don’t let the schedule be the final decision, but it’s a useful tiebreaker.  two, if you’re in top position, it allows you to make a trade that would greatly benefit you in th






evander kane exceeds even my expectations!


anyone who reads my posts knows how much i love evander kane for fantasy hockey.  you’re probably sick of me writing about him at this point.  well, i’m leading off with him again today because of the following: a) he had three more points on thursday night (2+1, 3 sog), b) nobody else went off because nino and i just led off with him, c) i watched the entire sabres game to see kane’s impact, and d) there is no d.  well, there is, watch dwight howard and dennis schroeder joke about it but not in regards to this point.  anyways, you guys know what to do with kane at this point.  for those who are new here, pick him up and play him!  it’s an excellent combination of goals, s s and penalty minutes at the moment.  and the best part for me is, he helped me win a trip to california in march to s






pacioretty picks pockets for hats


remember how poor max pacioretty was playing the first six weeks of the season?  despite the incredible start from the canadiens, patches was struggling to find the back of the net, mostly due to his s rate falling off a cliff.  while he’s not at his normal levels, he’s back over three s s per game and on tuesday, patches had a huge night.  he scored on all three of his s s leading the way in montreal’s destruction of the sabres.  all of a sudden, pacioretty is tied for second in the league in goals (at the time of this writing) being a plus contributor in all categories.  while he’s not in the top 25 like he was a couple years ago, patches is firmly in the top 50 going forward.  here’s what else i saw around the league on a m ive tuesday slate:brayden schenn – goal on two s s.  he’s becom






when gators climb trees - animals on the loose - pictures


when gators climb treeswild animals don’t always stay where they’re expected, and they can cause quite a hubbub when they find themselves out of their element.in july 2016, ronald saracino was walking through his neighborhood of southwest florida when he looked up and saw what appeared to be an alligator perched up in a tree. impossible? the florida fish and wildlife conservation commission confirmed that it was, in fact, an alligator, and that the animals have been known to exhibit such behavior. “it gives them a little bit better view of their territory,” amy sera, an educator at the calusa nature center in fort myers, told cbs affiliate wink. “cold blooded animals get their energy from the sun and the warmth. so, they are more active in the summer.”credit: p o by ronald saracino via win
