    Picture Of The Day: Say Goodbye To The Sexiest Catfish Clean-up Crew

    Now that the Nashville Predators have been eliminated from the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs, perhaps the one thing I will miss most – besides Carrie Underwood, of course – is their lovely catfish clean-up crew.  When was the last time you saw a lovely lady clean a giant, slimy, six-pound catfish from the ice with […]

    12 Awful Hockey Playoff Beards

    Well, we’re now halfway through the NHL playoffs and, as always, some truly amazing beards are starting to take shape. We have the New York Islanders teams of the early 1980s to thank for this. Of all the things that dynasty accomplished, inventing the playoff beard has to be the greatest. Hell, even NFL and […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/10/11 — Valtteri Filppula

    Through the first 50 minutes of Game 6 last night between the San Jose Sharks and the Detroit Red Wings, Antti Niemi was busy making a strong case for our “Stat Line of the Night.”  The Sharks goaltender was easily the busier of the two netminders, as he continued to frustrate the Red Wings’ shooters, […]

    Carrie Underwood Sheds A Tear Following Nashville Loss (Video)

    Last night the Vancouver Canucks made Carrie Underwood cry after eliminating the Nashville Predators from the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs.  For that, I can’t help but hate the entire Canucks organization. Now that we will no longer get to see the gorgeous country music singer cheering for her husband, Mike Fisher, in the stands at […]

    Joe Thornton Does His Best Soccer Player Impression (Video)

    The NHL playoffs often provide stories about heroic performances from players who demonstrate an impressive ability to sacrifice their bodies and play through injuries.  However, at times the story during this year’s playoffs has been the continuous efforts of players to embellish even the slightest infraction in order to earn a power-play. Players from just […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/8/11 — Pavel Datsyuk

    There were questions surrounding the health and availability of Pavel Datsyuk entering Game 5, as he was listed as questionable with a wrist injury.  However, with the Wings in a must-win situation, Datsyuk not only took part in last night’s game, but he would prove to be the difference in the Wings’ 4-3 comeback victory.

    Most of us are well aware of the fact that Brian Boucher is a below average NHL goaltender (one of many on the Philadelphia Flyers), who practically cost his team a shot at the Stanley Cup after allowing a total of 12 goals in three starts during the Flyers’ second round series against the Boston […]

    It was quite the scene leading up to Game 3 of the Western Conference second-round match-up between the Vancouver Canucks and the Nashville Predators.  First off, there was the Preds fans, who packed themselves into Bridgestone Arena in their yellow shirts, waving their yellow towels, and showing everyone that hockey is alive and well in […]

    After scoring a career-high 41 goals during the regular season, Ryan Kesler has seen his production drop dramatically in the playoffs.  In fact, heading into Game 3 of their second-round series against the Nashville Predators, the Canucks’ forward had failed to record a single goal in nine post-season games.  Many critics were beginning to wonder […]

    Late in the first period of Game 2 last night between the Boston Bruins and the Philadelphia Flyers, the Bruins’ Adam McQuaid attempted to plant an elbow into the head of Flyers’ forward Mike Richards.  He would miss on his attempted elbow and justice would be served only milliseconds later, as an off-balanced McQuaid would […]

    Entering their second round series against the Washington Capitals, the Tampa Bay Lightning would have been pleased to come away with a split in the first two games at the Verizon Center.  However, after winning Game 1 by a score of 4-2, the Lightning’s plans for the first two games quickly changed from split to […]

    After trailing their best-of-seven opening round series 3-1, the Tampa Bay Lightning were able to force a Game 7 and were suddenly one win away from advancing to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since they raised the Stanley Cup in 2004.  Winning a do-or-die game on the road at the […]
