    21 Ridiculous Hockey Dive GIFs

    In case you haven’t notice, there is an epidemic sweeping the sports world. It’s got a few different names depending on what sport you’re talking about, but the problem is the same. 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.

    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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. […]
