    Stat Line of the Night — 1/16/2014 — Henrik Lundqvist

    Henrik Lundqvist recorded two shutouts in the month of October, but he hasn’t been able to blank an opposing team since…Until last night. Lundqvist stood on his head throughout Thursday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings, stopping all 38 shots he faced during a 1-0 Rangers’ victory. With the win, the Rangers move one point […]

    The Anaheim Ducks don’t just win at home—they dominate.  That has been the case throughout the 2013-14 NHL season, and it continued last night when they hosted the Vancouver Canucks. Led by Corey Perry‘s two goals and two assists, the Ducks dismantled the Canucks by a ridiculous score of 9-1, improving their record at the […]

    The Anaheim Ducks entered last night’s game having yet to lose at home in regulation this season.  And not even a visit from one of the NHL’s best road teams, the Detroit Red Wings, could put a blemish on their record at the Honda Center, thanks to the stellar play of Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller.

    Had Auburn held onto its 18-point lead during last night’s BCS National Championship Game against Florida State, we’d probably be talking about Tigers running back Tre Mason and his 237 total yards and two touchdowns.  Unfortunately for him and the rest of his Auburn teammates, they couldn’t hold onto their lead and ended up losing […]

  • The 2014 Winter Classic Was Both Winter and Classic

    The 2014 Winter Classic Was Both Winter and Classic

    The NHL’s Winter Classic is not about showcasing hockey’s speed and skill. The goal is to remind everyone—in the dead of winter—that hockey is the winter sport par excellence. And yesterday the annual New Year’s Day outdoor game did exactly that. With 105,491 fans at Michigan’s famous “Big House”—braving snow and a game time temperature […]

    This Day In Sports History (December 31st) — Mario Lemieux

    It was on this day in 1988 that Pittsburgh Penguins center Mario Lemieux scored five goals in five different ways.  Lemieux recorded a goal at even-strength, shorthanded, on the power-play, on a penalty shot and into an empty-net. Lemieux became the first, and remains the only, player to accomplish this impressive feat.  Along with scoring […]
