    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/1/11 — Vincent Lecavalier

    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 […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/27/11 — Dwayne Roloson

    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 […]

    Canucks Win! Green Guys Celebrate With Vince Vaughan (Video)

    It seemed only appropriate that the roller coaster ride of a series between the Vancouver Canucks and the Chicago Blackhawks ended in dramatic fashion with a Game 7 overtime game-winning goal off the stick of Alex Burrows.  Especially after the Canucks winger blew an opportunity to seal the victory with a penalty shot in the […]

    Picture Of The Day: Tony Allen Has A Grizzly Hairdo

    Memphis guard Tony Allen went into his local barbershop and asked for “the Grizzly cut.”  This is what he got. Allen isn’t the only one who can’t get the Grizzlies out of his hair.  The Spurs seem to be having the same problem during their opening round best-of-seven series, as they currently find themselves trailing […]

    TNT Cameras Catch Relationship Dispute At Pepsi Center (Video)

    You would think that everyone in the Pepsi Center last night would be in a good mood with only 3.5 seconds remaining and the Denver Nuggets on the verge of winning their first game of the 2011 NBA playoffs.  However, the camera crew at TNT did spot one unhappy couple exchanging a few words in […]

    Chris Conner’s Penalty Shot Was Awfully Embarrassing (Video)

    With his Penguins trailing by a single goal midway through the second period of Game 6 last night against the Tampa Bay Lightning, Chris Conner found himself with the puck on his stick and no one between himself and Lightning goaltender Dwayne Roloson.  Unfortunately for him, that puck wouldn’t stay on his stick for quite […]

    9 Best NBA Arenas to Watch a Playoff Game

    This is/was a more difficult to assemble than those for baseball, football or even hockey. Though crowd plays a big role in the performance of a home team, NBA action is largely bird’s-eye. So on TV, the casual observer, or even the astute one, won’t really distinguish one from the other. Even fan noise is […]

    History Has Perfect Timing (James Neal’s Winner – Video)

    James Neal hadn’t recorded a goal in the post-season. He entered last night’s game with only one assist in his three playoff games with Pittsburgh this season. He hadn’t scored a goal in his previous 16 games, with his last coming on March 8th against Buffalo. In fact, he had only recorded one goal in […]

    Rangers Fans Ask Bruce Boudreau, “Can You Hear Us?” (Video)

    Following a Game 3 loss to the New York Rangers, Washington Capitals’ head coach Bruce Boudreau said that the fans at Madison Square Garden weren’t very loud, claiming that the fans at the Verizon Center were much louder. It was almost as if he was working with Verizon on their next commercial, because with the […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/20/11 — Marcus Johansson

    For a moment it seemed like Déjà Vu all over again.  The Washington Capitals qualified for the playoffs as the top team in the Eastern Conference, but after taking a 2-0 series lead, they were only 20 minutes away from allowing the New York Rangers to get right back in the series with a Game […]

    There Is A Towel Thief Among You Mavs Fans (Video)

    While watching the conclusion of Game 2 last night between the Dallas Mavericks and the Portland Trail Blazers, I couldn’t help but notice the towel around Tyson Chandler’s neck being ripped away from him as he made his way towards the locker room. I’m not sure who I am more impressed with here.  The kid, […]

    Blackhawks Fans Get Into It With Canucks Management (Video)

    When the NHL playoffs began, plenty of attention was placed on the series between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Vancouver Canucks.  These two teams share a well-publicized hatred for one another, but it appeared as though this year’s edition of their bitter rivalry would be short lived after the Canucks took a commanding 3-0 series […]

    John Tortorella vs. Larry Brooks, Part ??? (Video)

    Most hockey fans will tell you that some of the greatest rivalries in the game include the Boston Bruins vs. the Montreal Canadiens and the Detroit Red Wings vs. the Chicago Blackhawks.  I would argue that we should add John Tortorella vs. Larry Brooks to that list. The New York Rangers’ head coach and the […]

    Wake Up Kid!  Your Caps Won! Perhaps the only thing better than getting to attend to a playoff hockey game as a child and staying out way past your bedtime, is falling asleep at the game and being woken up immediately following a game-winning overtime goal by your team. This kid was probably dreaming about […]
