    Stat Line of the Night — 11/25/2013 — Martin St. Louis

    Martin St. Louis may have to make do without Steven Stamkos for a few more months while his Lightning teammate recovers from a broken leg.  But even without his linemate, the 5’8″ winger didn’t seem to miss a single beat during last night’s contest against the New York Rangers. After being honored with a silver […]

    Penn State Hockey Fan Dances to Bon Jovi (GIF and Video)

    Apparently dancing to Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” at sporting events is the latest craze. It started here, and now it’s resurfaced in a slightly less polished form at a recent Penn State hockey game. What Penn State fan Devon Fields lacks in technical performance skill (it doesn’t look like he knows the lyrics […]

    These days, more and more NHL players are wearing those cute little half visors. Some of them (like the Sedin Twins) probably wear them to deter other guys from punching them, and a few others probably wear them because they thing it looks cool.

    This Day In Sports History (November 22nd) – Wayne Gretzky

    It was on this day in 1999 that Wayne Gretzky was inducted into the Hockey Hall Of Fame.  Gretzky became the tenth and last player to bypass the usual three-year waiting period. Wayne Gretzky being elected to the Hall-Of-Fame was a no-brainer, as he is considered by many to be the greatest player in hockey […]

    14 Awesome NHL Player of the Game Trophies

    You may not have realized it if you don’t follow the NHL that closely (or if your team is no fun), but there’s a really awesome trend sweeping the league these days: player of the game trophies. I’m not talking about official awards handed out by media or the league. I’m talking about handmade and/or found items […]

    The debate regarding fighting’s place in hockey seems to have hit its peak over the course of the past month.  But for those in favor of banning fighting in hopes of eliminating violent acts of brutality from the sport, here’s an even better idea: we keep the fighting and simply get rid of some of […]

    The 13 Greatest Goalie Fights in NHL History

    We’re supposed to disapprove of line brawls in hockey because they make the game look silly and barbaric. However, I don’t really buy that. I think the regular fights we see today—the ones where guys agree to fight each ahead of time, for no reason, and then throw down as soon as the puck drops—those […]

    Awkward!: T.J. Oshie Pratfalls After Check From Kris Letang (Video)

    T.J. Oshie of the St. Louis Blues appeared to be paying homage to Mack Sennett during Saturday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins. You see, most players just kind of bounce off the boards when they get hit, but not Oshie.  Instead, after T.J. Oshie got hit by the Penguins’ Kris Letang, he appeared to get twisted […]
