    Stat Line of the Night — 2/3/2013 — Joe Flacco, Super Bowl XLVII MVP

    Joe Flacco took plenty of heat at the beginning of the season for telling a reporter that be believed he was ranked right up there among the NFL’s elite quarterbacks.  Following last night’s victory at Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans, I don’t believe he’ll be taking the same amount of flak should he choose […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/31/2013 — Thomas Vanek

    Thomas Vanek got off to a hot start last season, recording 14 points in his first nine game of the season, before eventually cooling down considerably and finishing with 61 points in 78 games.  As for this season, describing Vanek’s start as “hot” would be an understatement.  “Scorching” seems to be a much more appropriate […]

  • Stat Line of the Night — 1/30/2013 — Roberto Luongo

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/30/2013 — Roberto Luongo

    Roberto Luongo may be on the trading block, but if he continues to play like he has, the Vancouver Canucks may want to consider keeping him and trading Corey Schneider instead. Luongo entered the game with back-to-back shootout losses, but he was able to limit the opposition to a very respectable two goals against in […]

  • Stat Line of the Night — 1/29/2013 — LaMarcus Aldridge

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/29/2013 — LaMarcus Aldridge

    With the Portland Trail Blazers sitting just outside the playoff picture, in ninth place in the Western Conference, every win is crucial at this point in the season.  Last night’s victory is certainly no exception, and they have LaMarcus Aldridge to thank for it. In addition to recording 29 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, two […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/28/2013 — Chad Johnson

    One season after making the Western Conference Finals, thanks in large part to their solid defensive play and goaltending, the Phoenix Coyotes have struggled mightily to keep the puck out of their net.  Through their first five games of the season, they have allowed a total of 20 goals (an average of four per game), […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/27/2013 — Kobe Bryant

    Despite the additions of Dwight Howard and Steve Nash in the offseason, the Los Angeles Lakers have struggled mightily this season, putting together a 17-25 record through their first 42 games of the season.  That abysmal record had many suggesting that perhaps the team would be better off if their high-scoring superstar, Kobe Bryant, ditched […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/24/2013 — Eric Staal

    After acquiring Jordan Staal and Alexander Semin in the offseason, a lot was expected from the Carolina Hurricanes heading into the lockout-shortened 2013 NHL season.  But after dropping their first two games, they were looking to get into the win column against the previously unbeaten Buffalo Sabres, and they would do so thanks to a […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/23/2013 — Marian Gaborik

    The New York Rangers entered the lockout-shortened 2013 NHL season with the highest of expectations after finishing atop the Eastern Conference standings last season and making it all the way to the Conference Finals before losing to the New Jersey Devils.  But despite those expectations, the Rangers kicked off the year with losses to the […]

  • Stat Line of the Night — 1/22/2013 — Kyrie Irving

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/22/2013 — Kyrie Irving

    The Cleveland Cavaliers don’t have much, and that is reflected in their abysmal 11-35 record this season.  But the one thing they do have is Kyrie Irving, and on Tuesday night that was all they needed. Irving was on fire, as he torched the struggling Boston Celtics with 40 points on 16-of-24 shooting during last […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/21/2013 — Daniel Winnik

    Following a one-year hiatus from the NHL playoffs, the Anaheim Ducks will be looking to make their return to post-season play during the lockout-shortened 2013 season.  And thus far, their offense has certainly done their part to help that cause. On Saturday, it was Teemu Selanne recording a four-point night (two goals, two assists), as […]

  • Stat Line of the Night — 1/17/2013 — LeBron James

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/17/2013 — LeBron James

    On Wednesday night, LeBron James became the youngest player in NBA history to reach 20,000 career points.  On Thursday night, he began making his ascent towards the 30,000-point plateau with a 39-point effort against the Lakers in Los Angeles. With Jack Nicholson and plenty of other celebrities in attendance at the Staples Center to watch […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/16/2013 — Jeff Teague

    The Atlanta Hawks found themselves shorthanded going into last night’s game against the Brooklyn Nets, as they were without several players, including superstar Josh Smith. Smith has been the best player for the Hawks this season, but he was suspended for one game by the organization for “conduct detrimental to the team” following an incident […]

  • Stat Line of the Night — 1/15/2013 — Dwight Howard

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/15/2013 — Dwight Howard

    The Los Angeles Lakers kicked off the new year by losing their first six games of 2013, but their fortunes could suddenly be changing.  On Sunday, they snapped their streak of futility by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers.  And last night it was their two superstars, Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard, that were leading the way […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/14/2013 — Russell Westbrook

    The Oklahoma City Thunder visited Phoenix on Tuesday looking to become the first team in the NBA to reach 30 wins on the season.  And they would accomplish that feat, thanks in large part to the performances put forth by their two superstars. Leading the way in the points category was Kevin Durant, who scored […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/13/2013 — Shane Vereen

    When the New England Patriots and the Houston Texans met at Gillette Stadium during week 14 of this season, it was Tom Brady who emerged as the star of the show, throwing for 296 yards and four touchdowns during the Pats’ 41-14 victory.  And while the Pro Bowl quarterback had another impressive showing against the […]
