    29 Pavel Datsyuk GIFs that Prove He Is Some Sort of Wizard

    A whole list of Pavel Datsyuk GIFs? Really? Yes, dammit. You may not have noticed because the NHL decided back in 2007 that Sidney Crosby was the face of the league, but Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk is a hockey genius—nay, hockey wizard. The man is capable of doing things with a puck that are […]

    Jesus Gets Ejected From Easter Bruins Game (Video)

    Easter has always been an important day for Jesus of Nazareth, but he apparently decided to take in a hockey game on Sunday anyway—although, his treatment at the game was closer to what he received on Good Friday 2014 years ago, rather than Easter Sunday.  That’s because the Romans (or in this case, the Bostonians) kicked […]

Judging from the photo, the dog also appears to have some pretty good seats, which might be […]

    This Day In Sports History (March 12th) – Gordie Howe

    It was on this day in 1972 that Gordie Howe had his #9 jersey retired by the Detroit Red Wings.  Howe would return to playing a few years later for the Houston Aeros of the newly formed WHA, and after the WHA went bust in 1979,  “Mr. Hockey” returned for one more year in the […]

    The 2014 Winter Classic Was Both Winter and Classic

    The NHL’s Winter Classic is not about showcasing hockey’s speed and skill. The goal is to remind everyone—in the dead of winter—that hockey is the winter sport par excellence. And yesterday the annual New Year’s Day outdoor game did exactly that. With 105,491 fans at Michigan’s famous “Big House”—braving snow and a game time temperature […]

    The Detroit Red Wings were supposed to benefit this year from their shift from the stacked Western Conference to the considerably weaker Eastern Conference. However, so far, they haven’t exactly been dominating. They opened the season with a narrow 2-1 home win over Buffalo, then just barely scraped by Carolina 3-2 in OT before getting […]
