  • Hockey Brawl Cuts Game Short; Sets Record For Penalty Minutes

    Hockey Brawl Cuts Game Short; Sets Record For Penalty Minutes

    The KHL, or Kontinental Hockey League, is not exactly the cream of the crop when it comes to hockey leagues.  This Russian league generally takes on all players, be bad NHL players or over-the-hill ones.  That being said, the fights in this league look spectacular, way crazier than what we see here in the states. […]

  • Cuba Gooding Jr. Strips on Ice; Gets Cake on His Face

    Cuba Gooding Jr. Strips on Ice; Gets Cake on His Face

    It’s easy to love Cuba Gooding Jr., and its also easy to love hockey.  I’m not sure if the two mix, however.  This video helped to confirm that sentiment, although it did make me laugh and was way more encouraging than those fans beating the hell out of each other for a hockey stick.  Following […]

    Habs Georges Laraque In Trouble Over Sexy Alcohol Ad

    Georges Laraque of the Montreal Canadiens (who makes up one-third of the oreo line) often has a problem staying out of trouble on the ice.  The big bruiser usually finds himself making frequent visits to the penalty box, but now he has got himself in a bit of hot water over a recent commercial appearance […]

  • Top 10 Embarrassing Sports Moments of 2009 (Video)

    Top 10 Embarrassing Sports Moments of 2009 (Video)

    Sportscenter did its Top Ten Embarrassing Sports moments of 2009 this past week, and I have to tell you, they aren’t all that embarrassing for the most part.  They are fun to watch though.  In general, a player having a hissy fit over a bad call really isn’t that embarrassing in a lot of situations.  […]

  • Who Knew Pope John Paul II Liked Hockey?

    Who Knew Pope John Paul II Liked Hockey?

    God rest his soul.  Who ever knew that Pope John Paul II had a passion for Hockey?  It’s great to see even the Supreme Pontiff showing his love for a great sport.  But who ever was his coach should be fired as he is definitely holding the stick backwards.

  • The Green Men Mock The Nashville Predators (Video)

    The Green Men Mock The Nashville Predators (Video)

    The green man costume is slowly starting to seep into the national sports consciousness.  This odd green spandex outfit that covers a persons whole body and head is extremely creepy while being hilarious at the same time.  It was made famous by the show “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”, in which one of the characters […]

  • Justin DiBenedetto Holds His Own Against Cody McCormick

    Justin DiBenedetto Holds His Own Against Cody McCormick

    Justin DiBenedetto is not known for his fighting skills on the ice, he’s more of a scoring threat than a bruiser.  You wouldn’t have been able to tell the other night though.  In a hard-fought game that was bound to erupt into a fight all night, Dibenedetto took some shots from Cody McCormick, but was […]

  • Islanders Nate Thompson Whiffs on Empty Net (Video)

    Islanders Nate Thompson Whiffs on Empty Net (Video)

    More than one person should be embarrassed by this little clip.  During the Islanders-Rangers game last night, the Rangers got the best of the Islanders 5-2.  The highlight (or lowlight if you will) of the game was not a made goal, but instead this huge slip-up by Nate Thompson of the Islanders.  We have seen […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 12/15/09 – Jordan Staal

    It is no secret that the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Philadelphia Flyers do not like each other.  The two  inner-state rivals have met in the playoffs each of the past two years and it has been the Pens coming out on top both times.  The Flyers were looking to exact some revenge last night in […]

    Antero Niittymaki Makes An Amazing Goal Line Save (Video)

    Times have been rough as of late for the Tampa Bay Lightning. Currently sitting in 10th place in the Eastern conference, the team is a shadow of it’s former self that won a Stanley Cup. But with the emergence of Steven Stamkos as a legitimate superstar, along with Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis, the […]

  • 2009 NHL Power Rankings: Week 10

    2009 NHL Power Rankings: Week 10

    Not as much movement as usual for week 10′s NHL Power Rankings but, we do have a new number one ending San Jose’s reign. The biggest loser in our NHL Power Rankings this week were the Montreal Canadiens and Anaheim Ducks both falling four spots to end up at #26 & #28. The Canadiens put […]

  • 2009 NHL Fantasy 3 Stars: Week 10

    2009 NHL Fantasy 3 Stars: Week 10

    The tenth week of NHL Fantasy 3 Stars has a very familiar face return yet again, an American goaltender strutting his stuff, a young talented Swedish center showing off his skills and a youthful Colorado winger looking to make a name for himself. This weeks honorable mention goes to Chris Stewart of the Colorado Avalanche. […]
