  • This Day In Sports History (February 7th) — Darryl Sittler

    This Day In Sports History (February 7th) — Darryl Sittler

    It was on this day in 1976 that Toronto Maple Leafs forward Darryl Sittler set an NHL record by recording ten points in a single game.  He broke the previous record of eight, which was held by both Maurice Richard and Bert Olmstead. Playing against the Boston Bruins, Sittler scored an amazing six goals and […]

  • Stat Line of the Night — 2/6/2014 — Max Pacioretty

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/6/2014 — Max Pacioretty

    During last night’s game against the Vancouver Canucks, the Montreal Canadiens’ Max Pacioretty failed to convert on not one, but two penalty shot attempts during the course of the game.  You’d think that would make him the goat, but not quite. You see, Pacioretty may not have been able to score when given a breakaway […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/4/2014 — Carey Price

    With the start of the Olympics right around the corner, you know that Steve Yzerman, Mike Babcock and the rest of the Team Canada coaching staff will be keeping a close eye on their goaltending situation. Perhaps the one goaltender they’ll be watching closest is Montreal Canadiens netminder Carey Price.  And if they were watching […]

  • Stat Line of the Night — 2/3/2014 — Patrick Kane

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/3/2014 — Patrick Kane

    Patrick Kane was playing last night’s game against the Los Angeles Kings with a heavy heart after learning that his grandfather had passed moments before taking the ice at the Staples Center.  But that heavy heart would not weigh Kane down on this night.  Rather, it would propel him to a three-point performance, as the […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/29/2014 — Ben Scrivens

    I was tempted to award this “Stat Line of the Night” to Kevin Durant (33 points, 7 rebounds, and five assists vs. the Heat), but it’s not every day an NHL goalie records a 59-save shutout. More accurately, an NHL goalie had never recorded a 59-save shutout until last night, when Edmonton Oilers goaltender Ben […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/28/2014 — Carey Price

    The Montreal Canadiens entered Tuesday’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes having lost their last four straight.  Those losses have been rough on Carey Price, who was pulled on two occasions while allowing 17 goals against. The Habs’ netminder was looking to turn things around at the Bell Center last night, and he would do just […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/27/2014 — Brad Marchand

    After a slow start to the season, which saw him record just four points in his first 14 games, Brad Marchand seems to have finally found his scoring touch this season, as the Bruins forward entered last night’s contest against the New York Islanders in the midst of a five-game point streak.  And he would […]

    There are a wide range of problems that come with being a staffer for Toronto’s lovable mayor, Rob Ford.  Among them are covering up his crack-smoking addiction, avoiding questions regarding his crack-smoking addiction, and arranging therapy sessions for his crack-smoking addiction. And when you aren’t doing any of those, you’re probably busy trying to find […]
