    13 NHL Careers Cut Short By Concussions

    The 2011-12 NHL season is only a month away, but people who follow the league aren’t talking about Stanley Cup contenders and pretenders, hot prospects, or big trade buzz. Instead, everyone is talking about concussions, and whether the best hockey player in the world, Sidney Crosby, will even play this year. There are even some […]

    Picture Of The Day: He Shoots…He Scores!

    A little while back, we showed you an awesome picture of a football goal post in a men’s urinal. I guess the idea was, every time guys use the urinal to take a leak, they can shout “it’s good!” Well, today we bring you the Canadian version: a urinal with a hockey goal in it. […]

    13 Most Awesome Old-School Sports Video Games

    The other day, as I was negotiating a trade between the New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals in the franchise mode of MLB 11 The Show for PlayStation 3, I made a very obvious realization: sports video games sure have come a long, long way. There I was in 2011, tending to every minute […]

    Hockey season may be months away, but the highlights on the ice somehow continue to roll in.  The latest one comes from Matt Harrington, a minor league hockey player from the Boston area who used some slick puck handling skills and incredible camerawork to give us this spectacular shootout maneuver.

    It was on this day in 1996 that Wayne Gretzky signed a two-year contract with the New York Rangers.  The signing reunited Gretzky with long-time Edmonton Oiler teammate Mark Messier. Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier spent nine very successful years together in Edmonton winning four Stanley Cups.  However, their reunion in New York was short-lived, […]

    10 NHL Players When They Were Kids

    Seeing a National Hockey League player one month into the playoffs with his raggedy beard and marked up face makes it easy to forget that at some point these men were all a bunch of little boys that used to have their mothers dress them, comb their hair and walk them to school.  My how […]

    Picture Of The Day: Comparing Riots Around The World

    As a Canadian, I’m not quite sure what to make of this image.  After all, here are all these other countries rioting and causing destruction for their freedom and revolution, while in Canada we start lighting sh*t on fire when one of our hockey teams losses Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals.  Maybe we […]

    Picture Of The Day: Luongo Doesn’t Always Play Like A Bag Of Sh…

    …  But when he does, he prefers the playoffs. Brilliant! I couldn’t have said it any better myself.  When it comes to the regular season, there aren’t many goalies in the league that you would rather have over Roberto Luongo.  However, that all changes once the playoffs roll around.  Sure, his numbers in the regular […]

    Stopping pucks wasn’t the only thing Tim Thomas was busy doing last night.  With his team holding a comfortable 4-0 lead in the third period of Game 4 and the bad blood between the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins continuing to boil, Thomas decided to get in on the rough stuff and send a […]

    After the Canucks Maxim Lapierre taunted Patrice Bergeron with a finger to the mouth during Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Bruins’ coach Claude Julien responded by saying the following: “If it’s acceptable for (the Canucks), then so be it.
