What do goalies do when they have to poop? The short answer is: tough shit.
It would have been understandable if Connor McDavid was rusty tonight, seeing as he hasn’t played a game of hockey in three months after breaking his collarbone. Instead he scored this stunner by dangling past Justin Falk and Jack Johnson, and then deking goalie Joonas Korpisalo out of his damn skates. McDavid added a…
The second period of the Predators’ 2-1 win over the Flames featured a strange and scary moment, as Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman absolutely leveled linesman Don Henderson on his way back to the bench. The hit sure looks intentional, but Wideman had just been checked hard into the boards, and looked pretty woozy…
Senators winger Bobby Ryan helped some kids totally own their dad last night.
This here’s Matt Hendricks and he’s making that there face because he took a hockey puck to the Johnson while defending against a Howitzer of a slap shot.
Sports Illustrated has a fun piece about the various systems of informal fines NHL teams have, where players are forced to pay up for doing things like falling down during warmups, eating in the hot tub, or throwing utensils during dinner. It’s something to pass the time during the long NHL season, and a good excuse…
San Diego Gulls winger Brian McGrattan was felled by a right hand from San Antonio Rampage defenseman Daniel Maggio Tuesday night, and immediately hit the ice out cold. He was stretchered off the ice, though the Gulls later announced that he was conscious and alert:
When firefighters responded to a call at Justin Agosta’s apartment on Dec. 30, the Florida Everblades player told them he started the fire after burning his girlfriend’s love letters, according to a report on the Naples Daily News.
A Canadian junior hockey game got a little out of hand when a hit on the goalie led to a line brawl. Things got even further out of hand when one of the referees decided to do some punchin’ of his own. In an unforeseen twist, things calmed down considerably after one of the coaches rushed onto the ice and tackled the…
The Calgary Flames, like so many sports franchises, want Canadian taxpayers to foot the bill for a new stadium complex that would cost about $890 million to build. This morning, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman went on Calgary Eyeopener to discuss the Flames’ proposal, and he didn’t enjoy getting pushed around a bit by…
Alex Ovechkin lost his damn mind and went the entire length of the rink real fast to put one past Henrik Lundqvist and give the Capitals the 4-3 win in overtime.
Temperatures are dropping across the continent, leading to 99 bad outcomes and a singular good one: the construction of backyard hockey rinks. There is something, dare I say, magical, about constructing a rink in a backyard or nearby pond for everybody in the neighborhood to play in. It’s practically the only good…
Check this Canadian (of course) guy out. He’s about to turn 90 years old, plays hockey three times a week, has 12 kids, still shovels his driveway, and takes care of a graveyard during the summer.
Red Wings Dylan Larkin transformed Devils goalie Cory Schneider into a fish out of water Monday night. Larkin kicked up his leg, faked a shot on Schneider’s stick side, and went back around. The goal was Larkin’s 14th of the season. This rookie’s pretty good.
A few weeks ago, we told you about John Scott’s unlikely lead in NHL all-star fan voting. Despite being a fairly anonymous dude, and getting cut by the Coyotes a few times this year, Scott held onto his lead and has officially been voted into the game, and will start as one of the four captains, along with Jaromir…

- Wrist rocket

The Montreal Canadiens lost 3-1 to the Florida Panthers last night, and the score would have been 4-1 if not for this strange bit of physics:
The U.S. is currently taking on Canada at the IIHF world juniors in Finland, and the Yanks will have to play the final two periods without potential NHL first-rounder Alex DeBrincat after the Michigan native delivered his stick blade straight into Flyers prospect Travis Konecny’s gut. Go USA!
Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Dalton Prout let loose this vicious series of cross-checks late in the third period of a 5-2 loss to the Penguins. This is no inadvertent penalty or being a bit overzealous; it’s straight-up assault on Sergei Plotnikov.
John Scott is an NHL player (well, sort of) whose most marketable skill is that he’s 6’8” and willing swing on anyone. He’s bounced around between six teams in as many years, and he’s scored five goals in his career. And yet, Scott is the leading vote-getter in NHL all-star game fan voting due to a campaign taken up…
