    17 NHL Players You Just Want to Punch in the Face

    You know what I love about hockey? I love the way certain players just piss me off. I know that sounds crazy, but I really do. “Hating” other teams and players, which isn’t real hate (usually), is fun.

    Kids—where won’t they stick their tongues?

    Lightning Almost Choke Away a Win With This Embarrassing Own Goal (Video)

    Last night, the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the  Blackhawks 6-5 in overtime—in Chicago—moving to a very solid 6-3-0 on the year. For a team that missed the playoffs last year, you would think this makes them very happy. And ultimately it probably does.

    For the longest time in the NHL, having teeth knocked out has just been considered “part of the game.” If you still had a pretty smile, the thinking went, you probably were not playing hockey the right way.

    Hockey is one dangerous sport. If you’re not falling face-first to the ice, you’re almost getting your face sliced off or taking a puck to the kisser.

    We’re all familiar with the old joke, “I was watching a great fight and suddenly a hockey game broke out.”  But if you expected the circumstances behind a joke like that to completely dissipate during an international exhibition of women’s hockey, you were in for a rude awakening during Saturday’s meeting between the USA and Canada.

    9 Greatest Canadian Athletes Of All Time

    Today is Canadian Thanksgiving, or, as they call it, “Thanksgiving.” While the Canadians have much to be thankful for, like a functioning government and tolerable crime and literacy rates, the nation largely lies in the shadow of its southern neighbor’s athletic output.

    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 […]
