"Way To Go, Paul": Hulk-Like Hockey Parent Breaks Glass With Slap 

Look, I'm going to play this one straight: I know absolutely nothing about this video. It was tweeted at us from an unknown Twitter account, has almost no description, and was posted by a seemingly normal YouTube account that has been around for five years.

Tyler Seguin Is NOT Happy With This Referee's Positioning

You know what it's like. You're just trying to set up camp in the corner, maybe get the puck and then fire a pass in front of the goal, and the damn referee keeps getting in your way. My favorite part of this video is when the ref yells "I'm not moving!" Exactly, dude, that's why Tyler Seguin is mad at you! » 12/22/14 11:00pm 12/22/14 11:00pm

Last week, the Panthers and Capitals set a record by taking a shootout 20 rounds, eclipsing the previous record (15) held by a November 2005 game between the Caps and Rangers. It was also the first time since the shootout was implemented in 2005/2006 that skaters were allowed a second attempt, which is only… » 12/22/14 3:29pm 12/22/14 3:29pm
