  • This Day In Sports History (February 2nd) – Ian Turnbull

    This Day In Sports History (February 2nd) – Ian Turnbull

    It was on this day in 1977 that Toronto Maple Leafs’ defenseman Ian Turnbull scored five goals during a 9-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings.  To this day, his 5-goal performance still stands as a record for most goals in a game by an NHL defenseman. During the game, Turnbull only had five shots […]

    Watch Nick Foligno Send Dion Phaneuf Head-Over-Heels (Video)

    Some of you may recall a low hit by Brad Marchand on the Canucks’ Sami Salo that resulted in a five-minute clipping penalty and a five-game suspension for the Bruins’ forward.  Well it appears as though the NHL and their chief disciplinarian, Brendan Shanahan, have a very similar case on their hands following last night’s […]

    Leafs’ Colton Orr Was Tebowing Following A Shootout Goal (Video)

    With only 11 goals and 20 points throughout his seven-year NHL career, Toronto Maple Leafs enforcer Colton Orr hasn’t had plenty of opportunities to show off his goal celebrations.  He was afforded that opportunity during the Leafs Nation Fan Night at the Air Canada Center last night, and he took full advantage by getting down […]

    NHL Referee Chris Rooney Sticks His Gum On The Glass (Video)

    A 20 minute period can be a long time to chew a single piece of gum, especially when the game is being delayed by a bunch of penalties.  NHL referee Chris Rooney ran into that problem while officiating last night’s game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Los Angeles Kings.  But rather than simply […]

    Dion Phaneuf Delivers A Devastating Check On Mike Sauer (Video)

    Many NHLers will probably tell you that Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf is one of the hardest hitters in the game.  After being on the receiving end of one of Phaneuf’s monstrous checks, I’m almost certain that Mike Sauer would agree. With time running out in the third period of last night’s game between […]

    Matt Frattin Dangles, Sets Up A Beautiful Goal (Video)

    The Toronto Maple Leafs’ fourth goal during last night’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning was a special one for Joe Colborne, as it was the first goal of his NHL career.  It was also a special goal for anyone else watching it, thanks to some nifty moves from Colborne’s linemate, Matt Frattin. With the […]

    Predators Fan Kicks Leafs’ Joffrey Lupul Through The Glass (Video)

    Here is an interesting video.  It may be from last Thursday, but I just so happened to stumble across it today on YouTube.  It comes from a game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena.  After being called for a penalty, Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul stood along the boards with […]

  • Craig Smith Puts It Up And Over The Empty Net (Video)

    Craig Smith Puts It Up And Over The Empty Net (Video)

    In the game of hockey, shooting the puck over the net from inside the goal grease is probably harder than simply shooting it into the back of the net.  With that being said, I don’t expect anyone to be applauding the Nashville Predators’ Craig Smith for accomplishing that difficult feat during last night’s game against […]
