Blackhawks Top Ducks 3-2 In Triple OT

It isn’t the prettiest goal you’ll ever see—and it’s no head goal—but it did the trick just fine. Blackhawks forward Marcus Krüger punched the puck past Frederik Andersen 16 minutes and 12 seconds into the game’s third overtime; the longest game in the Chicago Blackhawks’s 89-year history. (It was only the second… » 5/20/15 2:23am Wednesday 2:23am

Potential Double OT-Winning Goal Disallowed For Being Too Awesome

Hockey players regularly play soccer in the locker room before games, and Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw pulled his best Ronaldo impression when he headed in a goal that left the city of Chicago thinking they’d won Game 2 of the Western Conference Final in double overtime. But no! It turns out that’s illegal. But… » 5/20/15 1:16am Wednesday 1:16am

Ottawa Senators Make Public Plea Seeking Liver Donor For Ailing Owner

A statement issued today on the Ottawa Senators’ official web page announced that team owner Eugene Melnyk is in urgent need of a live liver donor, with links for fans to investigate if they might be a match.

Calgary Seemingly Screwed By No-Goal Call, Ties Game Late Anyway

Down 2-3 with about six minutes left in the third period against the Ducks, the Flames really could have used a goal. And they seemingly got one on this shot by Sam Bennett that looked to barely cross the line before being kicked out by goalie Frederik Andersen. But the call on the ice was no goal, and after a review… » 5/06/15 12:27am 5/06/15 12:27am

Photos: Nassau Coliseum Ice Removed For The Final Time

Some sad, beautiful photos here, as work crews tore up the rink at Nassau Coliseum for the last time, as the Islanders will open next season in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Fort Neverlose was never pretty—and in its later years was barely functional—but so much hockey history was made here, and more importantly than… » 5/05/15 2:35pm 5/05/15 2:35pm

Petr Mrazek Makes Unbelievable Lunging Stick Save

The Tampa Bay Lightning beat up on Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek tonight, scoring four goals against him (plus an empty-netter) in a 5-2 victory to force Game 7. Despite the poor result, Mrazek had the save of the game (of the playoffs? of the season?) with this crazy lunging robbery of Brian Boyle. The goal was so… » 4/27/15 11:27pm 4/27/15 11:27pm

Vladimir Tarasenko Scores Ridiculous One-Handed Goal

We have featured the exploits of Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko in this space before, and watching him play never gets old. Here he is somehow smacking a backhanded shot past Wild goalie Devin Dubnyk. Tarasenko’s goal was his second second of the game, and Dubnyk was pulled a few minutes later after letting in his… » 4/23/15 12:13am 4/23/15 12:13am

Junior Hockey Player Farts Out A Spectacularly Bad Shootout Attempt

This poor schmuck is named Marko Milovanovic, and he is the captain of the Serbian junior national team. During Sunday’s game against Spain, young Marko stepped up to take his turn in the tie-breaking shootout, and proceeded to just fall right the hell down, gently sliding the puck past the blue line and right into… » 4/22/15 3:12pm 4/22/15 3:12pm

Brooks Orpik Nailed By Beer After Capitals Win

Nicklas Backstrom knotted the Capitals-Islanders series at 2-2 tonight, on an overtime goal from close to the blue line. An Islanders fan (presumably) wasn’t happy about this, and as the Caps players celebrated on the Nassau Coliseum ice, somebody chucked a beer that hit Brooks Orpik right in the shoulder. It was a… » 4/21/15 11:34pm 4/21/15 11:34pm
