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 Wednesday 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 Tuesday 11:33pm

Three Maple Leafs Fans Charged For Throwing Jerseys Onto The Ice

Toronto started off the season badly. Then they were good for a while! Now they're really bad again. Who are the real Maple Leafs? (The bad ones.) But some fans don't really have the patience for them to figure it out. During last night's humiliating 4-1 loss to Carolina, at least four fans chucked their Leafs jerseys… » 1/20/15 12:25pm 1/20/15 12:25pm

Not Even Hockey Is Safe For Packers Fans Right Now

I absolutely love this. When your own team sucks—as the Vikings do—sports, in their infinite wisdom, offer you a consolation prize: exulting in the tears of your enemies. St. Paul native Ryan Rhody had seats behind the Wild's bench for last night's game, and so knew he'd end up on TV multiple times. So he whipped out… » 1/20/15 11:37am 1/20/15 11:37am

How Jack Johnson's Parents Screwed Him And Left Him Millions In Debt

Jack Johnson's financial troubles came to light in November, when the Columbus Dispatch revealed that the Blue Jackets defenseman had filed for bankruptcy after his parents—who had been in control of his money since 2008—created eight figures' worth of debt for him. But it wasn't just poor management: according to a… » 1/14/15 2:10pm 1/14/15 2:10pm

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
