    2013 NHL Ice Girls Power Rankings

    I wasn’t planning to do a list of the top NHL ice girls squads this year. We did one last year, and it just didn’t seem like the kind of list that needed to be refreshed on a yearly basis. But then I discovered that there were a few new ice crews added to the […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 3/19/2013 — Sergei Gonchar

    Ottawa Senators defenseman Sergei Gonchar entered last night’s game against the New York Islanders with a seven-game point streak.  He exited the contest with an eight-game point streak.
