    Pierre McGuire broke into the NHL with the Pittsburgh Penguins, where he won Stanley Cup rings in 1991 and 1992 as the team’s scout and assistant coach.  He has since translated that coaching gig (as well as stints in Hartford and Ottawa), into a broadcasting job with the NHL on NBC, where he can be […]

    Tuukka Rask Falls, Carl Hagelin Scores (GIF)

    According to New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella, Carl Hagelin stinks (on the powerplay, of course).  But on this play during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals at Madison Square Garden last night, Hagelin was only the second-stinkiest player involved. The first-stinkiest player involved would obviously have to be Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka […]

    Another Day, Another Amazing Playoff Goal by Sidney Crosby (Video)

    How good was the goal Sidney Crosby scored against the Ottawa Senators last night? So good that it’s the only one of the Penguins’ seven that anyone will ever remember. After coming out on top in a must-win Game 3 earlier this week, the Sens managed to get to the third period of Game 4 […]

    ‘Kronwalling’ Is All the Rage in Detroit (Video)

    In Detroit, they sure do love watching dudes get “Kronwalled.” That’s when defenseman Niklas Kronwall obliterates an opponent with an epic open-ice hit, and it’s not to be confused with getting “cornholed,” which is…well, something very different. The term originated a couple of years ago as fans started taking note of the six-foot Swede’s proclivity […]

    The London Knights of the OHL didn’t win their Memorial Cup round robin game against the Portland Winterhawks on Monday, but if it’s any consolation, they didn’t fail to impress during their 6-3 defeat, either. Specifically, we’re referring to Knight’s forward Max Domi, son of former NHL tough guy, Tie Domi.  With London trailing by […]

    The Memorial Cup is an annual hockey tournament played between the champions from each of the three leagues in the Canadian Hockey League (the Ontario Hockey League, Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and Western Hockey League), as well as one host team.  And seeing as how the participants are all from within the Canadian Hockey […]

    Yet Another Bench-Clearing Brawl from a Russian Youth Hockey Game (Video)

    For years and years, hockey hardliners in North America criticized European players as soft while praising the virtue of hard-nosed Canadians. However, judging by what we’re seeing at the youth level in Russia these days, the next generation of Russian NHLers will be pretty damn tough. A couple years back we saw a bunch of […]

    Watching your team blow a three-goal lead midway through the third period, and a two-goal lead with less than 1:30 remaining in regulation is not easy, especially when it comes during Game 7 of their first NHL playoff series in nine years. Toronto Maple Leafs fans had to deal with such heartbreak following their epic […]
