  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 5/6/10 – Johan Franzen

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 5/6/10 – Johan Franzen

    With their backs against the wall and elimination staring them in the face, the Detroit Red Wings needed to come out firing last night at Joe Louis Arena if they wanted to avoid being swept from the playoffs in front of their hometown fans.  They did just that, and it was none other than the […]

    Introducing The San Jose Sharks Olympic Diving Team (Video)

    The San Jose Sharks have now taken a 3-0 stranglehold on their Western Conference semi-final series against the Detroit Red Wings.  Much of that can be attributed to the strong play from their second line, consisting of Joe Pavalski, Devin Setoguchi and Ryan Clowe.  Another key to their stellar play has been the resurgence of […]

  • The Coyotes Go Bankrupt…On Wheel Of Fortune?

    The Coyotes Go Bankrupt…On Wheel Of Fortune?

    It was a Cinderella season for the Phoenix Coyotes.  Amidst all the talks of a team in despair over the off-season, the boys who call Glendale, Arizona home put together one of the most improbable NHL seasons, finishing with 107 points and home-ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Unfortunately, that landed them […]

  • Wings Fans Document Octopus Tossing, Subsequent Jail Time In Phoenix

    Wings Fans Document Octopus Tossing, Subsequent Jail Time In Phoenix

    Octopus tossing has become a playoff tradition in Detroit (a.k.a. Hockeytown USA), but taking this tradition outside the confines of the Joe Louis Arena can be a little more risky than you would think.  A few men from Los Angeles decided to do just that, taking their show on the road to Jobing.com Arena in […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 4/14/10 – Derek Morris

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 4/14/10 – Derek Morris

    Even though they finished ahead in the standings and had home ice-advantage, no one was giving the Phoenix Coyotes much of a chance against the defending Western Conference champion Detroit Red Wings.  They are now!  Especially after their performance last night, which saw the Coyotes use a relentless forecheck to stifle the Wings offense and […]

  • 2010 NHL Fantasy 3 Stars: Week 23

    2010 NHL Fantasy 3 Stars: Week 23

    The twenty-third week of NHL Fantasy 3 Stars sees two elite forwards starting to warm up for the playoffs and two young unproven goaltenders showing that they’re ready for a long playoff run. This weeks honorable mention goes to (C/LW)-Henrik Zetterberg of the Detroit Red Wings. Last week Henrik scored 3 goals and added two […]

  • Sidney Crosby Eats Jimmy Howard’s Glove (Video)

    Sidney Crosby Eats Jimmy Howard’s Glove (Video)

    One thing all fans know about hockey is this: there is always justice on the ice. Sooner or later, you’re going to get back what you are giving out. For Sidney Crosby it came very soon after he chose some punk moves. At the end of Pittsburgh’s 3-1 loss to the Red Wings, Crosby decided […]

  • Niklas Kronwall’s Hilarious Skate Break Incident (Video)

    Niklas Kronwall’s Hilarious Skate Break Incident (Video)

    It can be impressive watching NHL players and the things they can do on two thin skate blades, but what happens when one of those blades is taken out from under them?  Needless to say, it isn’t pretty. Case in point, Niklas Kronwall’s disastrous one-minute shift on Tuesday night in San Jose.  With the Red […]

  • Datsyuk And Zetterberg Have Had Tremendous What? (Video)

    Datsyuk And Zetterberg Have Had Tremendous What? (Video)

    They may not have the likes of Steve Yzerman and Sergei Federov around anymore, but that has not slowed down the offensive attack of the Detroit Red Wings over the past several years. Perhaps the biggest reason for this has been the play of Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg. These two superstars have the ability […]

  • Red Wings Fans Climb The Rafters Looking For A Better View

    Red Wings Fans Climb The Rafters Looking For A Better View

    When it comes to live sporting events, it seems as though fans will do just about anything in order to give themselves the best view possible.  On Saturday night at Joe Louis Arena, one fan took that approach to new heights, literally! With the Detroit Red Wings up by a score of 2-1 going into […]

  • Pavel Datsyuk Pulls A Linus Omark During Shootouts (Video)

    Pavel Datsyuk Pulls A Linus Omark During Shootouts (Video)

    In baseball when the hitter is sitting on a fastball, as a pitcher, you throw him a change up.  The hitter will be so far out in front that the pitcher’s change will slip past the bat of the hitter and, often times, make him look silly.  I had never really seen that concept translate […]

  • 2009 NHL Power Rankings: Week 10

    2009 NHL Power Rankings: Week 10

    Not as much movement as usual for week 10′s NHL Power Rankings but, we do have a new number one ending San Jose’s reign. The biggest loser in our NHL Power Rankings this week were the Montreal Canadiens and Anaheim Ducks both falling four spots to end up at #26 & #28. The Canadiens put […]

  • Ref Blows Missed Goal in Red Wings Game (Video)

    Ref Blows Missed Goal in Red Wings Game (Video)

    It is definitely not professional sports refs’ year.  Tim Donaghy’s gambling on games was the beginning (and by far the worst) case of things going wrong for referees, but his incident was definitely not the only one.  Just today an uproar over the no-call on Henry’s shady handball spread through the sports media.  That wasn’t […]

  • 2009 NHL Fantasy 3 Stars: Week 7

    2009 NHL Fantasy 3 Stars: Week 7

    The seventh week of NHL Fantasy 3 Stars is brought to you by the color red as you’ll see it on 3 out of the 4 players’ jerseys. Don’t fret though as we do show some love for other colors of the rainbow this week with our 3rd star sniper…who happens to be from Russia. […]

  • 2009 NHL Fantasy 3 Stars: Week 6

    2009 NHL Fantasy 3 Stars: Week 6

    The sixth week of NHL Fantasy 3 Stars has a veteran feel to it with 3 of the 4 players having been in the NHL for at least 10 years. However, one player who’s become a regular already this season brings some fresh young blood into the mix as he currently leads the league in […]
