  • 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 […]

    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)

    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 […]

    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 […]

    Drunk Oilers Fans Built a Beer Cup Pyramid on the Glass (Video)

    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 […]
