    Behold the Most Pathetic Attempt at a Hockey Fight of All-Time (Video)

    It would be unreasonable to expect every hockey fight to be epic. Even in a league like the Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey, a small-time pro league that’s pretty much made up entirely of goons, the fights can’t all be Ali-Frazier…or even Mirasty-Gillies. Some of them have to be duds. That’s just the law of averages. […]

    Evgeni Malkin Trick Shot: Flips Puck into Bucket From Center (Video)

    Half-court shots in basketball always make for pretty popular posts, so today we thought, “why not a center ice hockey shot?” Of course, simply putting the puck in the open net from center ice is something any experienced player could do 99 times out of 100. So instead of just shooting the puck in from […]

  • This Day In Sports History (March 1st) — Wayne Gretzky

    This Day In Sports History (March 1st) — Wayne Gretzky

    It was on this day in 1988 that Wayne Gretzky surpassed Gordie Howe for the most career assists with his 1050th helper.  Gretzky set up Jari Kurri in the first period against the Los Angeles Kings during a 5-3 Oilers victory. It was quite fitting that Kurri would score the record breaking goal as that […]

    This Day In Sports History (February 22nd) – Miracle On Ice

    It was on this day in 1980 that the United States Men’s Olympic hockey team shocked the world by beating the heavily favored Soviet team.  Mike Eruzione scored the winner with ten minutes to go in the third period for a 4-3 victory. What most people do not realize is that this game did not […]

    21 Ridiculous Hockey Dive GIFs

    In case you haven’t notice, there is an epidemic sweeping the sports world. It’s got a few different names depending on what sport you’re talking about, but the problem is the same. I am talking, of course, about diving or flopping. What seems to have started in soccer quite noticeably crept into basketball. Now even […]

    Carey Price Was On, Cam Ward Was Not Last Night (Videos)

    During last night’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre, we saw a tale of two goaltenders who were having themselves two very different nights. On the one hand, there was Canes’ starting goaltender, Cam Ward, who did manage to make 23 saves on the evening, but there were […]

    This Day In Sports History (February 15th) — Wayne Gretzky

    It was on this day in 1980 that Wayne Gretzky tied the NHL record for most assists in a single game, with seven.  The Great One accomplished the feat during a game against the Washington Capitals, which his Oilers won by a score of 8-2. The only other player to record seven assists in a […]

    Rick Nash Delivers ‘Assist of the Year’ Candidate (Video)

    Thomas Vanek of the Buffalo Sabres and Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks were early candidates for “Assist of the Year” honors when they each delivered their own behind-the-back passes, which set up goals by Jason Pominville and Marian Hossa, respectively, earlier in the season. Unfortunately for both Vanek and Kane, they have since been […]

    How Many NHL GMs Does it Take to Operate a Television? (Video)

    “How many NHL GMs does it take…?” That is the title of the following YouTube video.  We’ll simply assume that the entire question being ponder is, “How many NHL GMs does it take to operate a television?” As for the answer, we don’t quite have a definitive one.  What we do know, however, is that […]

    Condor Gets Loose on the Ice During ECHL Game (Video)

    I was at a hockey game one time on Veterans Day, and to mark the occasion they had a bald eagle do a lap around the arena and then land back on his handler’s glove. It was pretty awesome, but it would have been even more awesome if the eagle had freaked out and gone […]

  • Stat Line of the Night — 2/7/2013 — Pekka Rinne

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/7/2013 — Pekka Rinne

    Pekka Rinne opened the season with losses in each of his first five starts (three by way of shootout).  During that stretch of futility, he allowed a total of 14 goals against, but the Predators’ keeper has turned things around in a big way ever since. Rinne entered last night’s game against the Kings with […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/6/2013 — Viktor Fasth

    The Anaheim Ducks have been quite the pleasant surprise this season, as they entered last night’s game with a 6-1-1 record through their first eight games.  Equally surprising has been the play of their back-up goaltender, Viktor Fasth, who had allowed just four goals in his first three starts, all wins.  His impressive showing between […]
