Andrei Vasilevskiy Is Not Quite Good Enough As Blackhawks Even Series

In Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Lightning goalie Ben Bishop went in and out of the game in the third period, possibly because he had the runs. In Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Bishop was obviously hobbled yet still good enough to stone the Blackhawks. Finally, in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Bishop’s… » 6/11/15 1:24am 6/11/15 1:24am

Guy Buys $1 Stanley Cup Tickets; StubHub Takes Them Away

Thanks to yet another StubHub seller who is bad at decimal places, a New York Rangers fan was able to purchase a few tickets for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals for $1 each (the purchase came with a $8.20 service fee, but who's complaining?). Unfortunately, this lucky Rangers fan probably won't end up attending any… » 6/04/14 11:56am 6/04/14 11:56am

Tuukka Rask Shuts Out Chicago Despite "Shitty" Ice; Bruins Lead 2-1

Game 3 actually ended in regulation, a nice change of pace from the first two games, but not before a short scuffle with about 11 seconds left. It looked like it was going to get really ugly for a second, but the refs quickly got control of the action and the game ended without (much) incident. Unless you count… » 6/17/13 11:21pm 6/17/13 11:21pm

Chicago Tribune Takes Back Its Post-Bombing Tribute To Boston

Remember the morning after the Boston Marathon bombings, when the Chicago Tribune dedicated the front page of its sports section to the city of Boston and its sports teams? That was a very sweet thing for the Tribune to do! But now, with the Bruins and Blackhawks facing each other in the Stanley Cup finals, the… » 6/14/13 10:25am 6/14/13 10:25am

Jaromir Jagr's Playoff Beard Is Way Too Much

There are some things Jaromir Jagr is unmistakably great at. Playing hockey, for instance—which Jagr does especially well, even now, at the age of 41. When he puts his hips out and leans forward, with his body between the defender and the puck, no one can dream of filching possession. He may have been the greatest… » 6/11/13 5:45pm 6/11/13 5:45pm

Pucks, Lies, And Videotape: Where Is The Kings' Stanley-Cup-Winning…

The last puck of the Stanley Cup Finals: an important relic, timeless for the player who gets to keep it as a souvenir of the greatest achievement of his profession life, yet strangely secondary. In the rush to celebrate the final horn, not a single member of the Kings gave a thought to that little rubber disc. Not… » 6/29/12 11:05am 6/29/12 11:05am

L.A. Kings PR Staff Plans To Withhold Stats From The Devils,…

It's the responsibility of the home team's PR staff to compile statistics after each period, then rush print-outs down to both teams' locker rooms. It's not vital information, but it's nice for a coach to be able to quantify things like ice time and shots taken. During Saturday's game 5 in Newark, Devils PR was… » 6/11/12 5:31pm 6/11/12 5:31pm
