    Islanders Rookie Ryan Strome Scored A Ridiculous Shootout Goal (Video)

    For all you hockey fans out there who have been feeling a little deprived due to the lack of on-ice highlights during these hot summer months, the Islanders’ 2011 first-round draft pick, Ryan Strome, is here to help you get your fix Islanders fans knew that when their team used their fifth-overall pick on the […]

    Martin St. Louis Scores An Awe-Inspiring Shootout Goal (Video)

    With the likes of Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Marian Hossa, Marin St. Louis and Steven Stamkos all suited up for last night’s meeting between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Tampa Bay Lightning, there was certainly no shortage of offensive firepower on display (we didn’t even mention Patrick Sharp or Vincent Lecavalier). As a result, one […]

    Linus Klasen Scores A Spectcular Spin-O-Rama Shootout Goal (Video)

    Now where was this move during the NHL All-Star Skills Competition? I simply don’t get it.  Every year the NHL seems to give their Breakaway Challenge a shot and every year the participants seem to disappoint us with their lack of creativity.  After all, how many times can we watch a player scoop the puck […]

    Western Michigan Defenseman Makes Ohio State Goalie Look Silly (Video)

    We are not even a month into the new year and already 2011 has treated us to more spectacular shootout goals than we witnessed throughout all of 2010. It began with Mikhail Grabovski’s stunning spin-o-rama move on the Blues’ Ty Conklin two weeks ago.  The brilliance continued Tuesday night with an abundance of creativity from […]

  • Ilya Kovalchuk Shootout FAIL! (Video)

    Ilya Kovalchuk Shootout FAIL! (Video)

    Is signing a 15-year, $100-million contract really worth all the baggage that comes with it?  Sure, you are one rich man, but for a shorter contract and less money, you would still be a rich man, and you wouldn’t be put under a similar microscope. I would love to hear Ilya Kovalchuk’s answer to that […]

    Linus Klasen Scores A Shootout Beauty (Video)

    Had he done this a few months earlier, you can bet Linus Klasen would have found himself on this list of the top shootout innovations.  Unfortunately he didn’t, but better late than never! During a Swedish Elite League game last night, Sodertalje’s leading scorer stepped up against Frolunda goaltender Johan Holmqvist and made the former […]

  • Hockey’s Top 10 Most Creative Shootout Goals (Video)

    Hockey’s Top 10 Most Creative Shootout Goals (Video)

    There’s a huge debate about whether or not the NHL should nix the shootout in favor of ties or more sudden death overtimes because it takes away from the game.   Those against the shootout contend that it rewards teams who have players with good one-on-one moves, not necessarily the better teams, with an extra […]

  • Devils Travis Zajac Scores Crazy Shootout Goal

    Devils Travis Zajac Scores Crazy Shootout Goal

    The shootout is what sets hockey and soccer apart from all other sports.  It is the peak of sports drama, for the entire game to come down to one shot, man vs. man, with all other variables eliminated when the score is tied. In this video we have a hockey shootout during the Predators-Devils game.  […]

  • Soccer Taunt Backfires on Goalie (Video)

    Soccer Taunt Backfires on Goalie (Video)

    Taunting.  In American football, it is addressed by a penalty and sometimes a fine.  In soccer it varies.  As this video makes clear, not all taunts are created equal, however.  Taunts can work in two ways, either the person taunting the opposing team backs it up, or he doesn’t.  And then of course there’s the […]

  • Is This A Goal Or Not?

    Is This A Goal Or Not?

    Total Pro Sports -  A weird one in last nights hockey game between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Colorado Avalanche.  The game went into shootouts last night, when Colorado Avalanche forward Milan Hejduk was first to shoot and stopped by Lightning Goalie Mike Smith.  The referees overturned the call and ruled that Mike Smith […]
