    Montreal Canadiens Unveil Crazy New Intro Video

    The Montreal Canadiens are like the sitcom shows of hockey—every game begins with a lengthy video presentation that regales viewers on the team’s history.

    The Lightning lost Game 1 of their first round series against the Canadiens in overtime last night, so most of their fans went home unhappy. Not the guy you see here, though.

    The Ottawa Senators were playing against the Tampa Bay Lightning last night, but it was the Senators’ forward Ales Hemsky who was moving faster than Lightning while maneuvering through their defense during his second period goal.

    Stat Line of the Night — 11/25/2013 — Martin St. Louis

    Martin St. Louis may have to make do without Steven Stamkos for a few more months while his Lightning teammate recovers from a broken leg.  But even without his linemate, the 5’8″ winger didn’t seem to miss a single beat during last night’s contest against the New York Rangers.

    Last night, the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the  Blackhawks 6-5 in overtime—in Chicago—moving to a very solid 6-3-0 on the year. For a team that missed the playoffs last year, you would think this makes them very happy. And ultimately it probably does.

That move would pay immediate dividends for Tampa, as Bishop […]

    With no wins in their last five game and just one win in their last eight, nothing seems to be able to motivate the Montreal Canadiens players these days.  Not even an inspirational fight, like the one Brad Staubitz provided them with when he laid a beating on Pierre-Cedric Labrie during last night’s game against […]

    No matter how many goals you have or where you rank among all NHLers in goal scoring, you are never safe from the Tampa Bay tradition of getting a face full of shaving cream on your birthday.  Steve Downie and Ryan Malone proved this yesterday morning when they shared their foamy gift with the NHL’s […]
