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

    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. On the one hand, there was Canes’ starting goaltender, Cam Ward, who did manage to make 23 saves on the evening, but there were […]

    16 Winningest Team Owners

    The sports world lost a giant on Monday. Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss died as the result of renal failure brought on by cancer. He was 80 years old. Of course, anybody who follows the NBA at all knows that, under Buss, the Lakers became what they are today: a championship juggernaut. So today, […]

    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 […]

  • Stat Line of the Night — 2/18/2013 — Ben Scrivens

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/18/2013 — Ben Scrivens

    After James Reimer went down with a knee injury earlier in the month, many wondered how Leafs back-up goaltender Ben Scrivens would fare as his replacement.  There were some skeptics following Scrivens’ lackluster performance in goal against the New York Islanders on January 24th, which saw him give up five goals on 25 shots, but […]

  • This Day In Sports History (February 15th) — Wayne Gretzky

    This Day In Sports History (February 15th) — Wayne Gretzky

    It was on this day in 1980 that Wayne Gretzky tied the NHL record for most assists in a single game, with seven.  The Great One accomplished the feat during a game against the Washington Capitals, which his Oilers won by a score of 8-2. The only other player to record seven assists in a […]

    Erik Karlsson’s Achilles Was Severed by Matt Cooke’s Skate (Video)

    Well, here’s some terrible news for the Ottawa Senators and pretty much anyone who enjoys watching exciting and creative hockey: the reigning Norris Trophy winner, Erik Karlsson, is sidelined indefinitely with a lacerated Achilles tendon. Going for the puck in the corner of his own zone last night against the Penguins in Pittsburgh, Karlsson got […]

    Flames Fans Pay Priceless Tribute to Jaromir Jagr (Video)

    Last night the Dallas Stars, the only NHL team in Texas, traveled north to the Texas of Canada, Alberta, to take on the Calgary Flames. Of course, being Canadians, the Flames’ fans were well aware that they were getting one of their last chances to watch one of the most prolific point-produces in NHL history: Jaromir Jagr. […]

  • Rick Nash Delivers ‘Assist of the Year’ Candidate (Video)

    Rick Nash Delivers ‘Assist of the Year’ Candidate (Video)

    Thomas Vanek of the Buffalo Sabres and Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks were early candidates for “Assist of the Year” honors when they each delivered their own behind-the-back passes, which set up goals by Jason Pominville and Marian Hossa, respectively, earlier in the season. Unfortunately for both Vanek and Kane, they have since been […]

    How Many NHL GMs Does it Take to Operate a Television? (Video)

    “How many NHL GMs does it take…?” That is the title of the following YouTube video.  We’ll simply assume that the entire question being ponder is, “How many NHL GMs does it take to operate a television?” As for the answer, we don’t quite have a definitive one.  What we do know, however, is that […]

  • 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 […]

    Habs’ Carey Price Takes a Puck to the Groin During Warm-Ups (Video)

    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 […]
