    2013 NHL Ice Girls Power Rankings

    I wasn’t planning to do a list of the top NHL ice girls squads this year. We did one last year, and it just didn’t seem like the kind of list that needed to be refreshed on a yearly basis. But then I discovered that there were a few new ice crews added to the […]

    Coyotes’ Antoine Vermette Scores an Own Goal (Video)

    One year after making it all the way to the Western Conference Finals, the Phoenix Coyotes find themselves on the outside of the Western Conference playoff picture looking in with less than ten games remaining in their regular season.  They currently sit in ninth place, just three points back of the eighth-place Detroit Red Wings.

    Stat Line of the Night — 4/4/2013 — Ben Bishop

    The Tamp Bay Lightning’s primary objective during this year’s NHL trade deadline was to improve their goaltending.  As a result, they traded away Rookie of the Year candidate Cory Conacher and a fourth-round draft pick to acquire Ben Bishop from the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday.

    Some people might say that nothing gets a hockey crowd excited like a fight. That’s certainly what the goons who drop the gloves right after a faceoff think.

    Prior to the start of the lockout-shortened 2012-13 NHL season, Sports Illustrated ranked the Edmonton Oilers as the top team in the Western Conference, and the third-best team in the entire league, behind the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New York Rangers.  But with two-thirds of the season in the books, the Oilers once again find […]

    The 13 NHL Goals Scored by Goalies

    Last week, New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur scored the third goal of his illustrious NHL career. Well, over the weekend, I happened to overhear a couple of gentlemen discussing the issue of goalies scoring goals at a local drinking establishment that I sometimes frequent, and they were all wrong. One said that the last […]

    This Day In Sports History (March 22nd) – Clint Malarchuk

    It was on this day in 1989 that Buffalo Sabres goaltender Clint Malarchuk suffered a near fatal throat injury.  Malarchuk had his interior carotid artery severed when teammate Uwe Krupp and St. Louis Blues forward Steve Tuttle crashed into him at a high speed. Malarchuk came dangerously close to losing his life that night, but […]
