    2014-15 St. Louis Blues Preview

    Losing to Chicago is understandable considering the Blackhawks entered the 2014 playoffs as defending Stanley Cup champions, but that's probably of little consolation to Blues fans. After all, St. Louis has only won one playoff series since Ken Hitchcock took over as coach early in the 2011-12 season...

    2014-15 Tampa Bay Lightning Preview

    Even though the postseason run ended shortly after it began with a four-game sweep at the hands of the Montreal Canadiens, there were plenty of positives to draw at the end of 2013-14.

    2014-15 Ottawa Senators Preview

    For 11 straight seasons from the 1996-97 campaign through 2007-08 the Senators qualified for the playoffs, with the franchise's high point coming in a trip to the 2007 Stanley Cup Finals. After missing the postseason in the spring of 2009, Ottawa qualified three times over the next four seasons ...

    2014-15 Calgary Flames Preview

    The Flames are coming off a not-so-surprising 77-point season, the lowest for the club since it notched just 75 in 2002-03. And though Calgary would reach the Stanley Cup Finals the following spring a decade ago, the turnaround isn't expected to be as swift this time around.

    2014-15 New York Rangers Preview

    Although New York lost several pieces from its Eastern Conference championship team in the offseason, the club still enters 2014-15 as one of the favorites to win the East.

    2014-15 New Jersey Devils Preview

    The three-time Stanley Cup champion and four-time Vezina Trophy-winning goaltender will no longer man the pipes for the Devils, and as of the start of October is still waiting for a call from someone. He'll always have a prominent place in the franchise's history and will one day have his No. 30...

    2014-15 Carolina Hurricanes Preview

    The Hurricanes didn't do much right last season, finishing towards the bottom of the league on both sides of the rink. They were especially bad on the power play, ranking 28th at 14.6 percent.

    2014-15 New York Islanders Preview

    However, recent history hasn't been kind to either the Isles or the Coliseum. The building derisively known as "The Mausoleum" is the most maligned arena in major professional sports, and the team it houses is usually nothing to rave about either.

    2014-15 Nashville Predators Preview

    Trotz's Predators made the playoffs in seven out of eight seasons from 2003-04 to 2011-12 and did so mainly due to the club's defense-first philosophy. Laviolette, meanwhile, preaches an up-tempo, possession style of play. The move does make sense considering Nashville finished 23rd in the league...

    2014-15 Montreal Canadiens Preview

    There is no question the 2014-15 Canadiens are a talented bunch. However, the club is still relatively young with a handful of its best players -- P.K. Subban, Max Pacioretty, Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher, to name a few -- entering this season at 25 years old or younger.
