In "A Whole New Low," Buffalo Fans Cheer Sabres' Loss

Above is video of Sam Gagner's overtime goal to put the Coyotes over the Sabres. The game was in Buffalo, yet the crowd cheered the Arizona winner. Cheered loudly, and spontaneously, to the point where if you're not a hockey fan, you might wonder if Coyotes fans travel particularly well. (They do not. And if Yotes… » 3/27/15 9:15am Today 9:15am

The NHL general managers are having their annual meetings this week and for the second year in a row they are discussing rule changes to decrease the number of games that are resolved by a shootout.

David Schlemko Scores Silky Smooth Shootout Goal

The Bruins and Flames had to go to the eighth round of the shootout to find a winner, but what a winner it was. Defenseman David Schlemko—who the Flames just claimed on waivers—pulled a nice little do-si-do that completely fooled Tuukka Rask, and secured both points for the Flames. Just look at that little tap in! » 3/05/15 10:42pm 3/05/15 10:42pm

TSN Will No Longer Air Tweets On Live Broadcasts

TSN sure screwed up when they broadcast a joke tweet saying that Joffrey Lupul was sleeping with Maple Leaf teammate Dion Phaneuf's wife, Elisha Cuthbert, but they've come up with a foolproof plan to prevent this type of situation from ever occurring again: they're going to stop airing "public" tweets on live… » 3/04/15 8:44pm 3/04/15 8:44pm
