    Stat Line of the Night — 3/7/2013 — Alex Ovechkin

    After starting off the lockout-shortened 2012-13 NHL season with just four points in his first eight games, and ten points in his first 16, many wondered whether we had seen the last of Alex Ovechkin‘s dominance at the offensive end of NHL rinks.  Apparently, we haven’t.

    What is it about cameras at sporting events that gives otherwise (presumably) sensible human beings the sudden urge to make some kind of vulgar gesture?

    I’ve always wondered where NHL arenas came up with the rule that prohibits the sale of alcohol following the start of the third period.  Apparently, former Rangers goaltender and current CBC ice-level commentator Glenn Healy has found the answer to that question, and his name is Dancin’ Larry.

    Washington Capitals’ captain Alex Ovechkin was having himself a rough night during Game 4 against the Boston Bruins on Thursday, as Zdeno Chara held the Russian sniper goalless for the third time this series while limiting him to just four shots on goal.  And the giant Bruins defender wasn’t the only one giving Ovechkin a […]

    If you want to throw kicks, you should have played soccer. That is the message someone needs to send Anton Belov of Avangard, after he delivered a kick that narrowly missed the face of Traktor’s Evgeny Kuznetsov as the Washington Capitals’ prospect laid injured on the ice.  Belov only received two-minutes for the infraction, which […]

    The sticks of the Washington Capitals’ players haven’t been doing much scoring as of late, as they have failed to record more than two goals in each of their last four games.  As a result, some of their players have begun searching for a more creative way to put the puck in the back of […]
