    Stat Line of the Night — 2/5/2013 — David Clarkson

    Last night, the New York Rangers faced off against the New Jersey Devils for the first time since being eliminated by their bitter rivals during last year’s Eastern Conference Finals.  And while the Broadway Blueshirts had revenge on their mind, they probably should have also been thinking about a way to shut down David Clarkson. Unfortunately, they […]

    Monday, February 4th, 2013 will go down as one of the worst days to be an on-ice official in NHL history.  Why?  Because not one, but two NHL referees were on the receiving end of a puck to the face during last night’s slate of games. The first took place at the Air Canada Centre […]

    During Saturday night’s battle between the Maple Leafs and the Boston Bruins at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, CBC’s “Hockey Night in Canada” crew made sure to point out that LeBron James was in the building to watch his first ever NHL game.  Although, judging by the footage they provided of the Miami Heat’s […]

    If you didn’t watch last night’s battle between the defending Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings and the defending Presidents Trophy winners, the Vancouver Canucks (who were coincidentally knocked out of the playoffs in the first round by the Kings), you missed quite the entertaining battle.  For starters, the game needed a shootout after Slava Voynov […]

    One season after making the Western Conference Finals, thanks in large part to their solid defensive play and goaltending, the Phoenix Coyotes have struggled mightily to keep the puck out of their net.  Through their first five games of the season, they have allowed a total of 20 goals (an average of four per game), […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/23/2013 — Marian Gaborik

    The New York Rangers entered the lockout-shortened 2013 NHL season with the highest of expectations after finishing atop the Eastern Conference standings last season and making it all the way to the Conference Finals before losing to the New Jersey Devils.  But despite those expectations, the Rangers kicked off the year with losses to the […]

    What is the best thing you can do with a cup of beer while attending a hockey game? The number one answer would have to be “drink it,” but I’d say “catching a puck with it” is a close second. Sure, snatching a puck out of the air with your beer may cause most of […]

    25 Hottest Celebrity NHL WAGs of All Time

    Did you hear that Alex Ovechkin is engaged? Well, he is—to the gorgeous tennis player and fellow Russian Maria Kirilenko. And this got me thinking the other day. First I wondered, wow, is the biggest looks mismatch in sports history? I don’t think Ovie is really what most women would consider “handsome.” Then I wondered, […]

    The Detroit Red Wings may have a tough time making the playoffs this season following the retirement of their future Hall of Fame defenceman, Nicklas Lidstrom, but it doesn’t appear as though they will have any problems making highlight reel packages. Before the lockout-shortened NHL season even began, Pavel Datsyuk was providing the hockey-loving world […]

    11 Worst Moments in Toronto Maple Leafs History

    Last week, just about 10 days before the hurried start of the shortened and condensed 48-game 2013 NHL season, the richest and most valuable team in the league did a very strange thing: the Toronto Maple Leafs threw their entire organizational structure into disarray by firing loudmouth GM Brian Burke. In fairness, Burke had been […]
