    Stat Line of the Night — 4/30/2013 — Alexander Steen

    The St. Louis Blues entered Game One of their first round playoff series against the Los Angeles Kings having lost each of the last eight meetings between these two teams.  That streak of futility dates back to last year’s second round playoff series, where the Blues were swept in four straight by the eventual Stanley […]

    20 Longest Active Playoff Streaks in Pro Sports

    Earlier this year, the Miami Heat fell just six games short of breaking the NBA’s record for longest winning streaks. Was that an impressive accomplishment? Absolutely it was.

Well, I personally am against making straight forward predictions. One of the best things about sports and one of the reasons we get so worked up about it is […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 4/28/2013 — Clayton Kershaw

    When Clayton Kershaw won the Cy Young award back in 2011, he put together a 21-5 record to go along with a 2.28 ERA.  He still has a long way to go if he hopes to replicate that success in 2013, but after yesterday’s performance against the Milwaukee Brewers, he appears to be well on […]

    After putting together a 21-8 record and a 2.89 ERA in 2012, Gio Gonzalez stumbled out of the gate in his second year with the Washington Nationals.  He has failed to last more than six innings in any of his first four starts in 2013, and he entered last night’s contest with a 1-1 record […]

    While the first UEFA Champions League semi-final match-up was being pegged as a battle between two powerhouse clubs in Barcelona and Bayern Munich, the second was being viewed more so as a battle between two powerhouse strikers in Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Borussia Dortmund’s Robert Lewandowski.
