    Rangers’ Marc Staal Takes a Slap Shot to the Face (Video)

    Every player in the NHL knows that the possibility of taking a puck to the face is something that simply comes with the territory of playing the game they love for a living.  But that doesn’t make it any less painful or horrifying when it does happens.  For proof, look no further than last night’s […]

    Behold the Most Pathetic Attempt at a Hockey Fight of All-Time (Video)

    It would be unreasonable to expect every hockey fight to be epic. Even in a league like the Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey, a small-time pro league that’s pretty much made up entirely of goons, the fights can’t all be Ali-Frazier…or even Mirasty-Gillies. Some of them have to be duds. That’s just the law of averages. […]

    Evgeni Malkin Trick Shot: Flips Puck into Bucket From Center (Video)

    Half-court shots in basketball always make for pretty popular posts, so today we thought, “why not a center ice hockey shot?” Of course, simply putting the puck in the open net from center ice is something any experienced player could do 99 times out of 100. So instead of just shooting the puck in from […]

    Junior Hockey Player Flips Out After Getting Hit from Behind (Video)

    With all the junior hockey highlights we’ve brought you lately, if you didn’t know any better you would think the NHL lockout never ended and we were just desperate for hockey-related material. Of course, the lockout did end, so it’s not that we’re desperate. It’s just that junior hockey players have been doing some remarkable […]

    Jonathan Drouin of the Halifax Mooseheads Is a One-Man Highlight Machine

    This is our second post concerning the Halifax Moosheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey Leauge within a week. We didn’t suddenly become big Mooseheads fans or anything, though. It’s just a coincidence that they have been involved in some remarkable plays. The first play, of course, was a brutal (though probably accidental) two-handed slash […]

    Caps Fan Performs Dirty Gesture for the Camera (GIF)

    What is it about cameras at sporting events that gives otherwise (presumably) sensible human beings the sudden urge to make some kind of vulgar gesture? I mean, there are so many things you could do with your fleeting moment of fame—wave, smile, stick your tongue out, beat your chest like an ape, do the Gangnam […]

    Last Night’s Leafs-Lightning Game Featured a Bout Between Ali and Frazier?

    If you happened to hear somebody talk about an “Ali-Frazier” fight at last night’s game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Tampa Bay Lightning, you might have assumed that somebody was commenting on the quality of the bout by making a comparison to one of boxing’s most famous rivalries between Muhammad Ali and Smokin’ Joe […]

    Carey Price Was On, Cam Ward Was Not Last Night (Videos)

    During last night’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre, we saw a tale of two goaltenders who were having themselves two very different nights. On the one hand, there was Canes’ starting goaltender, Cam Ward, who did manage to make 23 saves on the evening, but there were […]
