    Picture Of The Day – Fan Flips The Double Bird

    Your team had just finished the regular season in first place in the conference, and second place in the entire league.  They have the number one seed heading into the playoffs, and are set to take on the lowly number eight seed who finished 18 points behind them and has a bunch of kids with […]

    2010 NHL Playoff Predictions

    It’s NHL playoff time.  The regular season is done and now the new season begins.  The previous 82 games mean nothing anymore, but they do provide us with a basis from which we can make our predictions on who will provide us with the unthinkable upset, who will live up to their high expectations and […]

    BOOM…’The Office’ Body Check (GIF)

    Office outings can be a good way to promote bonding between employees, but when those outings involve some sort of sports activity, they can also be a great way to dish out some punishment to those who have been slacking on the job, or undermining your authority.  For those who are familiar with the hit […]

  • Keith Ballard’s Own Goal Is Stranger Than You Think (Video)

    Keith Ballard’s Own Goal Is Stranger Than You Think (Video)

    An own goal can be a tough pill to swallow, no matter what sport it happens in.  Often they occur when a defender attempts to prevent the opposition from scoring, but in doing so, such efforts simply backfire as the net suddenly seems larger and situated in the exact area you were hoping it wouldn’t […]

    Jonathan ‘Pig-Man’ Toews Wins The Stanley Cup!

    Okay, so the person in this mural is not supposed to be Pig-Man.  Instead, it is Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews.  Could have fooled me! With the NHL playoffs only a few weeks away, the people in the Windy City have been gearing up for what is believed to be one of their team’s best […]

    19 Players Ejected After Bench-Clearing Brawl During SPHL Game (Video)

    When it comes to bench-clearing brawls, this one is hard to beat.  What started off as a few scuffles, turned into a line brawl, and eventually into a full out free-for-all inside, and around, one team’s bench.  Just another Saturday night of Southern Professional Hockey League action.  Why couldn’t I have been at this game, […]

  • Goalie’s Cheap Shot Leaves Player Bloodied In SEL Playoff Action

    Goalie’s Cheap Shot Leaves Player Bloodied In SEL Playoff Action

    In the sport of hockey, we have gotten used to the fact that it will often be the goalies providing us with highlight reel saves, and the players providing the bone crushing (and sometimes dirty) hits on opposing players.  But in the Swedish Elite League, they prefer to do things different than their North American […]

  • USHL Goalie Fight (Video)

    USHL Goalie Fight (Video)

    I’m thoroughly convinced that goalie fights is the best way for hockey to make a major comeback in the lives of sports fans (and its media).  That’s why I believe it is imperative to relay this USHL clip of the two goalies throwing fisticuffs at one another at center ice as the rest of the […]

  • Sidney Crosby Eats Jimmy Howard’s Glove (Video)

    Sidney Crosby Eats Jimmy Howard’s Glove (Video)

    One thing all fans know about hockey is this: there is always justice on the ice. Sooner or later, you’re going to get back what you are giving out. For Sidney Crosby it came very soon after he chose some punk moves. At the end of Pittsburgh’s 3-1 loss to the Red Wings, Crosby decided […]

    Picture of the Day: The Swastikas Hockey Team (1916)

    Here’s a picture of the most racist Canadian hockey team ever, The Swastikas. No, not really. Before it became associated with the Nazis, swastikas had been used for hundreds of years as a symbol of good luck and prosperity.   The Windsor Swastikas adopted the, now controversial, logo as early as 1905.   According to […]

  • Matt Frattin Destroys Kevin Wehrs during WCHA Playoffs

    Matt Frattin Destroys Kevin Wehrs during WCHA Playoffs

    Where I’m from this is called getting Kronwalled.   Some might call it getting knocked the … you know … out. North Dakota forward, Matt Frattin, absolutely destroyed Minnesota Gophers’ defenseman, Kevin Wehrs into the boards during North Dakota’s 4-1 victory over the Gophers.  The win, much like the hit did to Wehrs, knocked the […]

  • Fan Attacks Backup Goalie During KHL Action (Video)

    Fan Attacks Backup Goalie During KHL Action (Video)

    There is no denying the fact that things can get pretty crazy on the ice in the Kontinental Hockey League, but perhaps nothing compares to what we have seen happening on the benches.  Last time it was the backup goalie dishing out the punishment.  This time it is the backup goalie taking it. During an […]

  • High School Hockey Introduction Fail (Video)

    High School Hockey Introduction Fail (Video)

    It is not often that a high school hockey player gets the opportunity to come out onto the ice as a P.A. announcer introduces him to fans through the loud speaker, with the cameras rolling.  So when it does happen, you want to make the best of it. Needless to say, this kid didn’t…or did…depending […]

    In Canada, Flying takes a Back Seat to Hockey

    When it comes to airline flight delays, some common causes you are likely to hear are weather conditions, or mechanical problems.  As for the least likely cause for a delay, we take you back to Vancouver for the 2010 Olympic Games, where an Air Canada flight was forced to remain on the ground because passengers […]

    Zamboni Takes A Dip In The Lake (Video) + (Pic)

    “Skating on thin ice” is most often used as an idiomatic expression, but at Keystone Resort in Colorado, that was literally the case for one unlucky zamboni. Performing its regular maintenance to the largest groomed skating pond in North America on Tuesday night, the 7000-pound ice cleaner was too much for the ice to handle, […]
