DETROIT — It's a crisis, to be sure. But the sky's not falling. At least, not yet. That's the biggest takeaway from the Bally Sports kerfuffle, with the regional-sports network's parent company, Diamond Sports Group, officially filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier this week. The move has been a long time coming, as Diamond — which owns 19 RSNs, covering 42 teams, including the ...

Even after all these years, Eric Heiden still marvels at what he accomplished during those nine days in the tiny village of Lake Placid. Five speedskating races, ranging from an all-out sprint of barely more than a lap to a grueling marathon covering more than six miles around the oval. Five gold medals. With apologies to every other remarkable accomplishment, Heiden’s sweep of each and every men’s speedskating event at the 1980 Winter Olympics was and remains the greatest feat in sporting history.

The New York Rangers and Boston Bruins loaded up for a potential Stanley Cup run, making bold moves to add talented players in the days leading up to the NHL trade deadline. The Detroit Red Wings and Philadelphia Flyers did not seem to fare as well, seemingly stuck in rebuilds that have relegated them to being sellers this time of year.

PITTSBURGH — We spent last football season criticizing Matt Canada. I know I did it as much as anyone. It was easy because his offense was a significant reason the Steelers missed the playoffs. How dare Canada let that happen? We also have been hard on Ron Hextall during this NHL season. I still can hear the "Fire Hextall!" chants that filled PPG Paints Arena last week during the Penguins' ...

Forget the U.S. hockey team knocking off the mighty Soviets at the 1980 Winter Olympics. That shocking upset doesn’t compare to the Kansas City Chiefs winning the Super Bowl against all the imaginary odds floating around in Travis Kelce's head. Or the Georgia Bulldogs somehow capturing a second straight national championship that no one except everyone saw coming. 

The 2018 Olympics without NHL stars offered a glimpse of things to come for players who hadn't yet reached the best hockey league in the world. Five years later, Kirill Kaprizov is starring for Minnesota. Wild teammate Jordan Greenway played on the U.S. team with Seattle's Ryan Donato. Finnish forward Eeli Tolvanen broke out in those Olympics and is now scoring with Donato and the Kraken. Czech goaltender Pavel Francouz helped Colorado win the Stanley Cup after beating the U.S. in an elimination shootout.

Few expected Linus Ullmark to be the top goaltender in the NHL and backstop the Boston Bruins to the best record in the league. The same goes with Stuart Skinner in Edmonton and Logan Thompson in Vegas. All three were All-Stars and are among the biggest goalie surprises this season.

Hall of Fame forward Bobby Hull, who helped the Chicago Blackhawks win the 1961 Stanley Cup Final, has died. Hull was 84. The two-time MVP was one of the most prolific scorers in NHL history, leading the league in goals seven times.
