    Stat Line Of The Night — 4/22/12 — Claude Giroux

    Game Six between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins was a crucial one, as a win by the Penguins would draw them even with the Flyers and force a Game Seven after falling behind 3-0.  Claude Giroux didn’t want to see that happen, and he made that quite obvious during his first shift of […]

    All 10 Penguins Goals From Last Night In One Minute (Video)

    The Penguins knew they would need to score early and often if they were going to stay alive in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the Philadelphia Flyers.  They would do just that, beating Ilya Bryzgalov and Sergei Bobrovsky five times each during their 10-3 blowout victory last night.

    Fights And Cheap Shots Mar This Weekend’s NHL Playoff Action (Videos)

    For the past two years I have chosen to discontinue the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” segment during the NHL playoffs because as many of us already know, fights rarely, if ever, take place during the post-season.  However, that has been far from the case during the 2012 NHL playoffs.  In fact, all of […]

    After a long 82-game prelude, the NHL really gets down to business tonight when the puck drops at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh and the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs get under way.

    The Pens And Sens Laugh Their Way Through The National Anthems (Video)

    Earlier in the month we learned that some do not take too kindly to those who wear hats during the national anthem.  I wonder how those same individuals would feel about seeing someone laugh throughout the singing of the anthem? While they may not be all that impressed with the giggle-fest that broke out during […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 3/20/12 — Malkin, Crosby And Neal

    When the Winnipeg Jets hosted the Washington Capitals last Friday, their fans could be heard taunting Alex Ovechkin with chants of “Crosby’s better!”  During last night’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Jets players would learn that not only is Sidney Crosby better than Ovechkin these days, but so too are Evgeni Malkin and James […]

    The Greatest Athletes to Wear Each Number: No. 99 to No. 00

    You know a superstar athlete has become a legend when his name has become synonymous with his jersey number, and there’s a banner with that number on it hanging in the rafters of every stadium of every team he ever played for. Ninety-nine? That’s Gretzky. Ten? Pele, of course. Forty-two? Jackie Robinson. Twenty-three? Jordan. Duh. […]

    20 Awesome Athlete-Celebrity Look-Alikes

    It’s funny how athletes always want to hang out with celebrities, and celebrities always want to hang out with athletes. There’s a weird kind of synergy between the two sets of super wealthy people—each seems to understand the other, and yet each also wants to be like the other. Meanwhile, the rest of us would […]

    They may not be Larry Appleton and Balki Bartokomous, but Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are still quite the amazing duo.

    Now that Movember 2011 has officially come to an end, I thought it would be a good time to take stock of the best charity mustaches from the world of pro sports. However, as I starting looking around, it became apparent that—just as with playoff beards—no other league can compete with the NHL when it […]

    “It’s scary to think that Crosby’s back.” That was likely on the mind of 29 teams in the NHL when Sidney Crosby recorded two goals and two assists in his return to the Penguins’ line-up on November 20th, and it seems to have been on the mind of DJ Steve Porter when he was creating […]
