    Evgeni Malkin Trick Shot: Flips Puck into Bucket From Center (Video)

    Half-court shots in basketball always make for pretty popular posts, so today we thought, “why not a center ice hockey shot?” Of course, simply putting the puck in the open net from center ice is something any experienced player could do 99 times out of 100. So instead of just shooting the puck in from […]

    It was on this day in 1988 that Wayne Gretzky surpassed Gordie Howe for the most career assists with his 1050th helper.  Gretzky set up Jari Kurri in the first period against the Los Angeles Kings during a 5-3 Oilers victory.

    With all the junior hockey highlights we’ve brought you lately, if you didn’t know any better you would think the NHL lockout never ended and we were just desperate for hockey-related material.

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/25/2013 — Roman Josi

    The Nashville Predators’ offense has been struggling mightily this season.  Heading into last night, the Preds were averaging a league-worst 2.05 goals per game and they were in the midst of a 120-minute goalless streak. But with defenseman Roman Josi leading the charge, the Preds were able to regain their scoring touch at the expense of the […]

I am talking, of course, about diving or flopping. What seems to have started in soccer quite noticeably crept into basketball. Now even […]

    Last Night’s Leafs-Lightning Game Featured a Bout Between Ali and Frazier?

    If you happened to hear somebody talk about an “Ali-Frazier” fight at last night’s game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Tampa Bay Lightning, you might have assumed that somebody was commenting on the quality of the bout by making a comparison to one of boxing’s most famous rivalries between Muhammad Ali and Smokin’ Joe […]

    Carey Price Was On, Cam Ward Was Not Last Night (Videos)

    During last night’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre, we saw a tale of two goaltenders who were having themselves two very different nights.

    Avs’ Matt Duchene Scores a Goal From a Mile Offside (Video)

    If you’re a hockey fan, then you probably heard a lot of pundits saying we should expect some pretty sloppy hockey to start the 2013 NHL season. They said that with the extended lockout and the six-day training camps, there was no way teams would start out as well-oiled machines. Of course, this line of […]
