  • Stat Line of the Night — 2/7/2013 — Pekka Rinne

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/7/2013 — Pekka Rinne

    Pekka Rinne opened the season with losses in each of his first five starts (three by way of shootout).  During that stretch of futility, he allowed a total of 14 goals against, but the Predators’ keeper has turned things around in a big way ever since. Rinne entered last night’s game against the Kings with […]

    You would think that, with frozen pieces of rubber flying at them at 80 mph, hockey goalies would have enough padding around their “man equipment” to make sure nothing bad can happen. But apparently that is not the case. Before last night’s Bruins-Canadiens tilt at the Bell Centre in Montreal, during the pre-game skate, Montreal’s […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/6/2013 — Viktor Fasth

    The Anaheim Ducks have been quite the pleasant surprise this season, as they entered last night’s game with a 6-1-1 record through their first eight games.  Equally surprising has been the play of their back-up goaltender, Viktor Fasth, who had allowed just four goals in his first three starts, all wins.  His impressive showing between […]

    Everyone knows Canadians love their hockey. But even those hockey-loving Canucks know that sometimes the games can be a little boring. And when that happens, they don’t just sit there. They turn to their other love—beer—for entertainment. We saw just such a scenario on Monday night during the Canucks-Oilers game in Edmonton. Or actually, we […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/5/2013 — David Clarkson

    Last night, the New York Rangers faced off against the New Jersey Devils for the first time since being eliminated by their bitter rivals during last year’s Eastern Conference Finals.  And while the Broadway Blueshirts had revenge on their mind, they probably should have also been thinking about a way to shut down David Clarkson. Unfortunately, they […]

  • Fat Florida Panthers Fan Dancing Shirtless is Terrifying (Video)

    Fat Florida Panthers Fan Dancing Shirtless is Terrifying (Video)

    The Florida Panthers are perennially in the bottom third of the league when it comes to attendance rates. Last year, for example, they averaged just 16,628 fans per game, which means they only filled 86.4% of the seats. Only seven teams did worse. However, that doesn’t mean the Panthers don’t have die hard fans. Apparently […]

  • Two NHL Referees Took a Puck to the Face Last Night (Videos)

    Two NHL Referees Took a Puck to the Face Last Night (Videos)

    Monday, February 4th, 2013 will go down as one of the worst days to be an on-ice official in NHL history.  Why?  Because not one, but two NHL referees were on the receiving end of a puck to the face during last night’s slate of games. The first took place at the Air Canada Centre […]

    LeBron James Watches His First Ever NHL Game (Video)

    During Saturday night’s battle between the Maple Leafs and the Boston Bruins at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, CBC’s “Hockey Night in Canada” crew made sure to point out that LeBron James was in the building to watch his first ever NHL game.  Although, judging by the footage they provided of the Miami Heat’s […]

    So apparently every NFL quarterback worth his salt has got to come up with a signature gesture to perform after scoring a touchdown. Aaron Rodgers has the championship belt thing (which has become the Discount Double Check thanks to his State Farm commercials). Tim Tebow has Tebowing (i.e., kneeling and giving thanks to the Almighty […]

  • Stat Line of the Night — 1/31/2013 — Thomas Vanek

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/31/2013 — Thomas Vanek

    Thomas Vanek got off to a hot start last season, recording 14 points in his first nine game of the season, before eventually cooling down considerably and finishing with 61 points in 78 games.  As for this season, describing Vanek’s start as “hot” would be an understatement.  ”Scorching” seems to be a much more appropriate […]

    If you didn’t watch last night’s battle between the defending Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings and the defending Presidents Trophy winners, the Vancouver Canucks (who were coincidentally knocked out of the playoffs in the first round by the Kings), you missed quite the entertaining battle.  For starters, the game needed a shootout after Slava Voynov […]
