Charlie Coyle Stuns Edmonton With Breakaway, Soft-Handed Goal

The body control from Charlie Coyle is my favorite part of his game-winning goal in the third period against the Oilers. His entire body is beginning to whip around the net like he's going to attempt a wraparound, but he somehow manages to tap the puck backwards and then throw his stick out to knock it into the net.… » 1/28/15 1:05am Today 1:05am

Zach Parise Suffers Puck To The Face, Picks Up Tooth Off Ice

I know it is uncool for hockey men to wear facemasks or visors, but it seems like a really smart idea. The sport involves very long sticks, extremely sharp blades, and small pieces of frozen rubber hurtling around the rink at 100 miles per hour. Face protection in those conditions seems prudent, but who am I to tell… » 1/27/15 11:33pm Yesterday 11:33pm

Barry Trotz On Possibly Misguided Quest To Keep Tiger At Columbus Zoo

According to a series of tweets from Aaron Portzline—the Blue Jackets beat reporter for The Columbus Dispatch—Washington Capitals coach Barry Trotz is trying to prevent an Amur (Siberian) tiger named Foley from being transferred from the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium to the Kansas City Zoo.

"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. I cannot find any other trace of it on the internet. But who… » 1/22/15 12:35am 1/22/15 12:35am

Zdeno Chara Drops Cedric Paquette With One Punch

I went to go look up Cedric Paquette's height and weight, figuring a "Cedric Paquette is tiny. Zdeno Chara is 6'9", 255 pounds. The result when they fought was predictable." lede would be pretty good. Except I learned from Hockey Reference that Cedric Paquette is actually 6'1", 198 pounds: Zdeno Chara is just that… » 1/13/15 9:50pm 1/13/15 9:50pm

Canadian World Champion Hockey Team Celebrates With Bare-Ass Twitpic

Look at that, a nice photo of some Canadian hockey players celebrating their 5-4 victory over Russia in the 2015 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships, tweeted out by Canadian Olympic freestyle skier Alexandre Bilodeau. Tweeted out...and then quickly deleted once Bilodeau realized that he had captured an unintentional… » 1/06/15 1:25am 1/06/15 1:25am

Michael Del Zotto Gets Cut By Skate, Looks Like Frankenstein

Hockey games feature—among other things—sharp blades and exposed necks, and every so often they collide. Last night Flyers defenseman Michael Del Zotto fell over while trying to dig the puck out of the corner. Avalanche forward Daniel Brière tried to step over him, but managed to clip Del Zotto's neck with his skate… » 1/01/15 7:06pm 1/01/15 7:06pm

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
