    Bruins Fan Caught Sipping On His Flask (Video)

    Watching your team lose to the Winnipeg Jets can be an awfully difficult experience to sit through.  Following a 15-game stretch without a regulation loss, Boston Bruins fans were forced to endure just that during last night’s game between their B’s and the Jets at the MTS Center. Thankfully for this senior fan, he was […]

    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 […]

    Follow The Magic Puck (Video)

    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 […]

    There was plenty of action during yesterday’s all-Canadian battle between the Winnipeg Jets and the Ottawa Senators, as viewers witnessed a total of 10 goals during the Sens’ 6-4 victory.  However, not all of the action from last night’s game was pretty.  In fact, one moment during the opening period turned out to be downright […]

    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 […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Ladd vs. Skille — 10/31/11

    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. Skille knocked Jets’ defenseman Tobias Enstrom out […]

    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 […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Prust vs. Glass — 10/24/11

    There was only one fight in the NHL last night, but it was a good one.  It came only a few minutes into a game between the New York Rangers and Winnipeg Jets, as Brandon Prust and Tanner Glass exchanged punches for an action-packed 50 seconds of fisticuffs.  The Rangers and the Jets aren’t exactly […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Engelland vs. Thorburn — 10/17/11

    Going forward, we expect it will be tough for any of the NHL’s combatants to match the performance put forth by Cam Janssen and Brian McGrattan over the weekend. Despite giving it their best shot, Deryk Engelland of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Chris Thorburn of the Winnipeg Jets couldn’t place themselves among the early nominees […]
