    Two surprising facts were unveiled during Saturday night’s game between Winnipeg Jets and the Nashville Predators.  The first is that the Atlanta Thrashers actually did have fans before being moved north of the boarder to Winnipeg prior to the start of this season.  The second is that those fans, although few in number, apparently still […]

    Tonight the Detroit Red Wings take on the Nashville Predators at Joe Louis Arena, where the Preds will try to do something no team has been able to do since November 3, 2011: beat the Wings at home.

    Ryan Miller’s Stick Makes “Save Of The Year” (Video)

    Last week we suggested that Mike Smith’s save on a Marian Gaborik penalty shot may turn out to be the best save from the 2011-12 NHL season… Not so fast. During last night’s game against the Winnipeg Jets, Ryan Miller’s desperate attempt to stop a puck that got by him was successful, as he reached […]

    9 Most Unlikely Pro Sports Cities

    For pro sports teams to succeed these days, they need more than a loyal fanbase. If that was all that was needed, there wouldn’t be so many defunct pro sports teams. Instead, what pro teams really need under today’s business model is corporate sponsorship and media revenue. Without those two things, teams are going to […]

    Last night, Winnipeg Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec stopped all 33 shots directed his way, as he helped his team earn an important victory against Winnipeg’s former NHL franchise, the Phoenix Coyotes. But even when Pavelec wasn’t able to get a piece of his body on the puck, there almost seemed to be a magical force […]

    13 NHL Teams That No Longer Exist

    It seems like most NHL fans are happy to see a team back in Winnipeg this season. I know I am. Still, it’s always a shame when one town’s gain has to be another’s loss. In an ideal world, teams would just stay in one damn place. You wouldn’t have teams leaving hockey-mad towns to […]

    Andrew Ladd of the Winnipeg Jets recorded an assist and scored the game-winning goal in the shootout last night, but his most impressive contribution during the Jets’ 4-3 victory over the Florida Panthers came two minutes into the third period when he dropped the gloves with Jack Skille.

    Ilya Bryzgalov: “I’m Terrible And I Have Zero Confidence” (Video)

    While every member of the media appreciates a player who gives their honest opinion during an interview, I am quite certain that the last thing any goaltender’s teammates would want to hear is their $5.67-million netminder admit that he is terrible and has zero confidence. After last night’s game, Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov did […]
