  • Sabres’ Pominville Stretchered Off After Brutal Hit From Hjalmarsson (Video)

    Sabres’ Pominville Stretchered Off After Brutal Hit From Hjalmarsson (Video)

    Throughout North America, many hockey organizations have adopted the use of stop signs on the back of jerseys to prevent hitting from behind.  Perhaps the NHL should do the same. Whether the sight of a miniature stop sign would have stopped the Blackhawks’ Niklas Hjalmarsson from steamrolling the Sabres’ Jason Pominville from behind is up […]

    Jordan Eberle’s First NHL Goal May End Up Being His Best (Video)

    Coming into the 2010 season, the Edmonton Oilers were boasting a line-up full of potential future NHL stars.  One of those potential stars is Jordan Eberle, and he gave fans a little taste of things to come last night in a game against the Calgary Flames. With his team up 1-0 early in the third […]

    Habs’ Mike Cammalleri Hacks Away At Nino Niederreiter (Video)

    During the 2010 NHL playoffs, Mike Cammalleri’s precision with his hockey stick around the net rivaled that of a surgeon operating with his cutting knife.  And as the NHL wrapped up pre-season play over the weekend, Cammalleri was once again showing off his skills with his stick, but rather than doing so by scoring some […]

    Ovechkin’s Head Appears On CCM Commercial, Body Noticeably Absent (Video)

    He may not be the most fluent English speaking man on this planet, but that shouldn’t cause any company to overlook Alex Ovechkin as the spokesperson of their next commercial.  Just check out the brilliant performance he put on in his latest television appearance for CCM’s U+Crazy Light skates. Perhaps the only thing more frightening […]

    Picture Of The Day: Kiss And Make Up

    If only every hockey fight would end like this, perhaps there would be a lot less people asking to have them banned from the game. The one thing many of us will always remember most about Brad May is Rick Jeanneret’s famous “May Day!” call after the Sabres’ tough guy scored the series-clinching goal in […]

    Greatest NHL Player: Wayne Gretzky vs. Mario Lemieux (Infographic)

    Who is currently the best player in the NHL?  Such a question would likely bring about a few different answers.  While most would opt for Sidney Crosby or Alex Ovechkin, others might deviate from the norm and say Jonathan Toews, Steven Stamkos, or maybe even Henrik Sedin.  It is not an easy choice, but what […]

    Rick Nash And Evgeni Malkin Engage In An Unlikely Fight (Video)

    The NHL preseason is a time for bubble players to grind it out for roster spots while the superstars often watch from the press box above.  Perhaps someone should try telling that to Evgeni Malkin and Rick Nash. Two of the league’s elite players made an appearance in Saturday night’s game between the Pittsburgh Penguins […]

    I’m not sure if the Jersey Shore’s Ronnie is a fan of the Washington Capitals, or if the Caps’ Alex Ovechkin is a fan of the Jersey Shore, but it appears as though these two hit it off quite nicely during a recent encounter.  But what might two characters like Ovi and Ronnie have to […]

  • Sens’ Lessard Ends Up On The Bench After Missed Check (Video)

    Sens’ Lessard Ends Up On The Bench After Missed Check (Video)

    “If you can dodge a check, you can dodge a ball.” If that is the case, it appears as though Leafs’ defenseman Mike Komisarek would be quite the dodge ball player.  At least that is the impression we get after seeing him get out of the way of this Francis Lessard hit during last night’s […]

    Many hockey fans believe that Daniel and Henrik Sedin have an advantage on the ice because of a special sense they both share as twins.  To justify their argument, some have pointed to this unbelievable goal that they manufactured together at the end of last season.  It is hard to argue that there is not […]

    Sidney Crosby Hits A Homer At PNC Park (Video)

    It is no secret that Sidney Crosby is the best hockey player in Pittsburgh, but he may also be the best baseball player in the city as well.  Especially when you consider the fact that his toughest competition comes from the players on the Pittsburgh Pirates. When was the last time you saw a player […]

    Prince of Wales Trophy Engraving Error

    Nobody expected the seven-seed Philadelphia Flyers to make it all the way to the Stanley Cup. I’m not even sure they believed they’d make it to the playoffs, needing a late-season run and an OT-winner in the final regular season game to clinch. Then they surely couldn’t believe they’d make it to the third round. […]
