Black & Blue & Gold On The Beat


Welcome to the first Black & Blue & Gold On The Beat. I’ll be posting an article from every NHL beat blog besides The Buffalo News’ Sabres Edge. It’s a good way to sneak a peek into the world of each and every other team in the National Hockey League. This entry will just be a post that indexes each blog – if you’re feeling so inclined, go ahead and get to bookmarking.

Anaheim Ducks – Ducks Blog (OC Register)

Atlanta Thrashers – Thrashers (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

Boston Bruins – Bruins Blog (Boston Globe)

Calgary Flames – Flames Insider (Calgary Herald)

Carolina Hurricanes – Canes Now (The News & Observer)

Chicago Blackhawks – Chicago Breaking Sports (Chicago Tribune)

Colorado Avalanche – All Things Avs (Denver Post)

Columbus Blue Jackets – Puck-Rakers Blog (Columbus Dispatch)

Dallas Stars – Stars Blog (Dallas Morning News)

Detroit Red Wings – Red Wings Blog (Detroit Free Press)

Edmonton Oilers – The Cult Of Hockey (Edmonton Journal)

Florida Panthers – On Frozen Pond (Miami Herald)

Los Angeles Kings – Turns out the Kings don’t even get their own dedicated beat blog. The LA Times ought to be ashamed.

Minnesota Wild – Russo’s Rants (Minnesota Star Tribune)

Montreal Canadiens – Habs Inside/Out (Montreal Gazette)

Nashville Predators – Predators Insider (The Tennesean)

New Jersey Devils – Devils Beat Reporters Blog (The Star Ledger)

New York Islanders – The NYI beat blog is stashed behind a paywall. Eff that noise.

New York Rangers – The Blue Seats (New York Post)

Ottawa Senators – Off The Posts (Ottawa Sun)

Philadelphia Flyers – Frequent Flyers (Philadelphia Inquirer)

Phoenix Coyotes – Coyotes Blog (Phoenix Fanster)

Pittsburgh Penguins – Empty Netters (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

San Jose Sharks – Working The Corners (San Jose Mercury News)

St. Louis Blues – Morning Skate (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)

Tampa Bay Lightning – Lightning Strikes (St. Petersburg Times)

Toronto Maple Leafs – The Spin (Toronto Star) and Leafs Now (Toronto Sun)

Vancouver Canucks – Puck World (Vancouver Sun)

Washington Capitals – Capitals Insider (Washington Post)

So there you have it, folks – every beat blog in the league. It’s pretty sad that The Los Angeles TImes can’t commit the staff to doing a Kings beat blog and instead just publish Bleacher Report pieces. Also, I’m sure Newsday’s Islanders readership is way up since installing that paywall.
