As the clocks around the world ticked over to 12:00 a.m. on New Year's Eve, a brand new year approached us all. The NHL is in full swing and barreling toward the All-Star break, and a few clear favorites have emerged in both conferences.
This is an interesting season for the NHL, as it is the last with the current two-conference format.
All 30 teams are quickly approaching the halfway points of their seasons, and only a handful of teams are currently considered "out" of the playoff hunt. Another handful are heading down that road, but there is always time to make a run down the stretch and stun the hockey world.
With all of that in mind, keep your web browser glued here for a daily news feed of everything NHL, and never feel out of the loop on hockey news again.
