Awful Neighbor Sics City On Backyard Rink That Causes "Visual Harm"

Backyard ice rinks are a tradition in Canada and the northern United States. They are practically the only benefit of living in the goddamn tundra. Some backyard rinks are amateur affairs, nothing more than some 2x4s and a hose, while others cost thousands of dollars and have lights, real boards, and a warming shed.… » 12/09/14 11:51pm 12/09/14 11:51pm

Jonathan Bernier Humiliatingly Has No Idea Who Nelson Mandela Is

Nelson Mandela was a South African anti-Apartheid leader who spent 27 years in jail before eventually being elected as the country's first black head of government. You probably didn't need that insultingly curt biography, but Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Jonathan Bernier sure could have used it a few days ago. » 12/09/14 12:49am 12/09/14 12:49am

Tyler Ennis Scores No-Look Backhanded Goal While Falling Over

As Tyler Ennis skated towards the net early in Buffalo's game yesterday, Montreal defenseman Alexei Emelin probably thought he had done a decent job shepherding him to away from a dangerous position. Then Ennis managed to kick the puck past the crease, hurdle Carey Price's pads, and then slap a no-look backhander into… » 11/29/14 2:39pm 11/29/14 2:39pm

John Klingberg Scores Knuckling Goal From The Neutral Zone

The Dallas Stars defenseman scored this thunderous goal to take a 1-0 lead over the Oilers in the first period tonight. If you look closely at about 27 seconds, you can see that the puck is actually on its side when Klingberg slaps it.

11-Year-Old Japanese Hockey Wunderkind Is The Truth

The kid dangling and destroying the competition above is Aito Iguchi, an 11-year-old who plays for Japan's Saitama Junior Warriors.

Jaroslav Halak Makes Stupendous Back-Of-Head Save

It can be hard to remember sometimes that, despite looking like overweight babies swaddled in three too many layers, hockey goalies are amazing athletes with great hand-eye coordination and reflexes. Islander goalie Jaroslav Halak displayed all that—and a healthy dose of luck—when saving this Aleksander Barkov shot in… » 11/15/14 4:42pm 11/15/14 4:42pm

Hockey Fan Fight Starts And Ends With A Flight Down The Stairs

This starts off just like any other fight between fans at a sporting event, with two guys puffing up their chests and talking some shit while the rest of the crowd waits for something to happen. It escalates quickly when a bystander decides to get things moving with a beer to the head, and then it really escalates » 11/11/14 10:33am 11/11/14 10:33am

Seth Griffith Scores Backwards, Through-The-Legs Wonder Goal

This is only the fourth goal in Boston Bruin Seth Griffith's young career, but he may never score a better one. Turned around by Devils defenseman Marek Zidlicky, Griffith still managed to get his stick on the puck and poke it into the goal.
