    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/16/11 — Carey Price

    After recording eight shutouts in 72 games last season, Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price had failed to blank the opposition in his first 15 starts this season.  He finally put an end to that drought by giving the Carolina Hurricanes a drought of their own last night at the Bell Centre. Price didn’t get much […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/15/11 — Cristiano Ronaldo

    After drawing 0-0 in the first leg of their play-off for the Euro 2012 Final Tournament, Portugal returned home in search of a victory against Bosnia and Herzegovina.  They would get that victory in convincing fashion, as they out-classes their much lesser opponents, en route to the 6-2 win. As you may have guessed, their […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/14/11 — Aaron Rodgers

    Will anyone be able to stop Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers this season?  With each passing week the answer to that question looks more and more like an emphatic “No.” The Packers entered last night’s home game against the Minnesota Vikings with a perfect 8-0 record and their undefeated season never appeared to […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/10/11 — Michael Bush

    Not having Darren McFadden in the line-up was supposed to negatively affect the Oakland Raiders offense, especially their running game.  It didn’t, thanks in large part to an incredible effort from a more-than-capable back-up running back by the name of Michael Bush. Bush has always been the Raiders bruising goalline back, but last night he […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/9/11 — Craig Smith

    In a rematch of last year’s Western Conference first round playoff series between the Nashville Predators and the Anaheim Ducks, the Preds were looking for a similar result against their foes from California.  They would get the result that they were looking for, thanks in large part to a player who wasn’t involved in last […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/8/11 — Niklas Backstrom

    The Minnesota Wild may not have been the best team on the ice at the Saddledome last night, but they had the best goalie, and that was all they needed. After backing up Josh Harding for four straight games, all Wild wins, Niklas Backstrom was given the opportunity to return to the starting role, and […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/7/11 — Nathan Horton

    The Boston Bruins opened the 2011-12 NHL season with only three wins in their first 10 games, causing many to blame their early struggles on a Stanley Cup hangover.  However, they have been able to turn things around recently, heading into last night’s game with victories in each of their two previous games.  They would […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 11/6/11 — Aaron Rodgers

    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/6/11 — Aaron Rodgers

    Aaron Rodgers continues to shred opposing defenses and assert himself as the best quarterback currently playing in the NFL.  He entered yesterday’s game against the San Diego Chargers with 2372 passing yards, 20 passing touchdowns and only three interceptions, and he would improve those numbers in a big way during the Packers’ 45-38 victory. Rodgers […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 11/3/11 — Pekka Rinne

    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/3/11 — Pekka Rinne

    To say that Pekke Rinne had quite the day yesterday would be an understatement.  In addition to celebrating his 29th birthday, the Predators goaltender signed the biggest contract extension in team history when he was inked to a seven-year extension worth $49-million.  And to top it all off, later that night he stopped all 35 […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 11/2/11 — Joffrey Lupul

    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/2/11 — Joffrey Lupul

    Joffrey Lupul has struggled to find consistency during his last two seasons in the NHL, but a change of scenery and playing on a line with Phil Kessel may have been exactly what he needed in order to turn things around.  The Toronto Maple Leafs’ right winger entered last night’s game against the New Jersey […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 11/1/11 — Teemu Selanne

    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/1/11 — Teemu Selanne

    Teemu Selanne is a lot like a fine wine.  He only seems to be getting better with age. The “Stat Line of the Night” is usually reserved for those whose stats help lead their team to a victory, but today we switch our focus and honor those whose stats truly defy Father Time.  At 41-years-old, […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 10/31/11 — Ryan Callahan

    The New York Rangers were in tough at home against the red-hot San Jose Sharks, but like any good captain, Ryan Callahan was there to lead his team to a big victory. The newly anointed captain of the Rangers entered the game with only three points – all goals – in his first nine games […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 10/30/11 — Steven Jackson

    Most NFL experts didn’t give the previously winless St. Louis Rams much of a chance against the New Orleans Saints, but what they failed to realize is that when you have a running back like Steven Jackson carrying the ball for you, anything is possible.  Jackson proved just that yesterday afternoon. The presence of the […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 10/27/11 — Case Keenum

    One day many of us may have Case Keenum on our fantasy football teams.  Unfortunately for us, he will likely never have another performance like the one he had last night against the Rice Owls at Robertson Stadium. The University of Houston quarterback threw more touchdown passes in a single game than half of the […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 10/26/11 — Brian Elliott

    Heading into the 2011-12 NHL season, Jaroslav Halak was pegged as the St. Louis Blues number one goaltender.  Less than a month into the season, it appears as though he has lost that position to former Ottawa Senator goaltender Brian Elliott. Elliott further cemented his position as the Blues top goalie with his performance last […]
