  • Under Ice Hockey Is As Crazy As It Sounds (Video)

    Under Ice Hockey Is As Crazy As It Sounds (Video)

    I personally enjoy the brand of hockey that is played on top of a sheet of ice, but I guess such a game is not for everyone.  In Austria, it appears as though they would rather play the game from under the ice.  Seems crazy, doesn’t it?  After all, if you thought playing on top […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 3/3/11 — Pekka Rinne

    With the battle for playoff spots in the Western Conference heating up down the stretch, several teams currently find themselves fighting for the final five spots in what has become one of the closest playoff races the NHL has seen in a while.  With every point being so important, perfection has become a must for […]

    Picture Of The Day: Telestrator Dong?

    Could it be?  Is that what I think  it is?  It looks like a…. …a telestrator dong! Attempting to give us some insight regarding the Buffalo Sabres’ offensive zone play against the New York Rangers last night, the crew at VERSUS appeared to be a little too “excited” about the way the Sabres had been […]

    Avs’ Ryan O’Byrne Takes A Taylor Hall Skate To The Face (Video)

    Here is more evidence of why hockey players may be some of the toughest athletes in the world. During last night’s game between the Edmonton Oilers and the Colorado Avalanche, players from both teams got tangled up behind the Avs’ goal, causing Taylor Hall’s skate to come up and slice Ryan O’Byrne in the face.  […]

    Female Avs Fan Shows No Love For The Oilers (Video)

    Times have been tough for the Colorado Avalanche, and the fans appear to be growing impatient.  After making the playoffs last season and coming close to upsetting the first-place Sharks, things have gone downhill from there for the Avs, who have recorded only one win in their past twelve games and currently sit 11 points […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/23/11 — Vincent Lecavalier

    The Phoenix Coyotes entered last night’s game in Tampa Bay riding an eight-game winning streak.  They left with a one-game losing streak, and it wasn’t a pretty loss either. The Lightning took advantage of a Phoenix team that appeared to be tired one night after earning a tough overtime victory in Philadelphia, as they cruised […]

    No Brotherly Love Here: Eric Staal Crushes Brother Marc (Video)

    While growing up under the same roof in Thunder Bay, Ontario, there were likely several occasions that saw Eric Staal get physical with his younger brother Marc while playing hockey out on the pond.  That is what brothers do.  They dish out punishment on one another, but they do it out of love. Last night, […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/21/11 — Matt Moulson

    The New Jersey Devils are not the only bottom-feeding team using a hot streak to make one final push for the playoffs.  Surprisingly, the New York Islanders have put together quite the run of their own in February, as they entered yesterday afternoon’s game against the Florida Panthers having won seven of their ten games […]

    Picture Of The Day: Is Your Mask Looking At Me?

    Before you begin to believe that Carey Price is as creepy as the mask he was wearing during yesterday’s NHL Heritage Classic, we should inform you that the design by artist David Arrigo, which featured the look of an old-school goalie mask with eyes on the top and a mouth on the bottom, was a […]

    Check Out This Nut-Shot From The Heritage Classic (Video)

    Nothing says a Heritage Classic quite like hot Tim Horton’s coffees, frozen beers and a friendly nut-shot. During a second intermission performance by Metric, one fan’s over-exuberance became another fan’s golden opportunity.  With his friend’s arms raised in the air as he soaked in some facetime on the jumbotron (and CBC), the opening was there […]

  • Here Is The Best High School Hockey Goal You Will Ever See (Video)

    Here Is The Best High School Hockey Goal You Will Ever See (Video)

    Tomas Jurco showed off some of his puck-handling tricks during the CHL’s Top Prospects Skills Competition, and he gave us a few more while conducting a follow-up interview in the dressing room.  Pretty amazing stuff, but I’d like to see him try that in a game. While Jurco may not be providing us with that […]

    Here Is The Most Tame Line-Brawl You Will Ever See (Video)

    I know what you are probably thinking to yourself after reading that headline: “Is it ever possible for a hockey line-brawl to be tame?” My answer to that question is “Yes.”  Especially when the players willingly escort themselves to the penalty box at the conclusion of their fight, without the assistance of the referee or […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/16/11 — Alexander Semin

    Midway through the third period of last night’s game between the Washington Capitals and the Anaheim Ducks, it appeared as though “The Stat Line of the Night” would come down to a choice between two Ducks players; Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry.  Both players had recorded one goal and three assists each, and their team […]
