You knew this was coming: live shots of reporters in Chicago being overwhelmed by drunks. But wait! There’s more—including the line of the night, “They got black people lovin’ hockey!”
While CBC has ceded control of Canada’s hockey broadcast world to Rogers, the traditional sensational season-ending montage has remained a part of Hockey Night in Canada. Here’s tonight’s NHL season highlight reel, set to Alistair Griffin’s “Always No. 1.”
That’s suboptimal goaltending.
Tampa Bay took an early 1-0 lead in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final when Alex Killorn flipped an Anton Stralman pass past Corey Crawford. This is great stuff.
Hockey fans in Joplin, Mo. hoping to see an exciting Game 7 between Chicago and Anaheim tonight aren’t getting live Stanley Cup Playoffs hockey on NBC. No, their affiliate KSNF has the most redneckian of redneck shows on instead: Branson Country USA. The channel helpfully advises viewers looking for hockey to tune…
Before tonight’s Lightning-Rangers Game 7, CBC caught up with a fan who paid $4,500 for a seat along the glass. “Hundreds only. Benjamin Franklin is killin’ the game!” Give this guy a reality show; Hockey Night in Canada has its hero.
For the past few playoff games at Amalie Arena, the Tampa Bay Lightning have used their now-ubiquitous 3-D ice projection system to display a simulation of the classic Nintendo Blades of Steel game onto the playing surface—using the actual goals and everything. It’s the best usage of the technology we’ve seen so far:
The Anaheim Ducks took a 3-2 Western Conference Final lead with a Matt Beleskey goal 45 seconds into overtime that erased an outstanding performance by Jonathan Toews in the final minutes of regulation—including a miracle shot that found the net with 38 seconds remaining.
The Western Conference Final is tied 2-2 after a double overtime thriller that came to an end when Chicago’s Antoine Vermette found the net to give the Blackhawks a 5-4 win.
It isn’t the prettiest goal you’ll ever see—and it’s no head goal—but it did the trick just fine. Blackhawks forward Marcus Krüger punched the puck past Frederik Andersen 16 minutes and 12 seconds into the game’s third overtime; the longest game in the Chicago Blackhawks’s 89-year history. (It was only the second…
Hockey players regularly play soccer in the locker room before games, and Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw pulled his best Ronaldo impression when he headed in a goal that left the city of Chicago thinking they’d won Game 2 of the Western Conference Final in double overtime. But no! It turns out that’s illegal. But…
A Steven Stamkos hit on Kevin Klein led to NHL linesman Brad Kovachik being knocked out of tonight’s Lightning-Rangers game in the second period. Backup linesman Greg Devorski took over for Kovachik. We don’t have word yet on Kovachik’s condition.
Hockey fans watching tonight’s Eastern Conference Final Game 2 got a very rare treat: a three-on-five double shorthanded goal by Tampa Bay’s Tyler Johnson, whose breakaway score came only after video replay overturned the on-ice “no goal” call.
Blackhawks defenseman Michal Rozsival left tonight’s fourth game of Chicago’s series against the Wild with a horrific-looking ankle injury that left his skate pointing in the exact opposite direction that feet are supposed to go.
Tampa Bay took a 1-0 lead in their Stanley Cup playoff series against Montreal when the Lightning’s Nikita Kucherov found the net two minutes into the second overtime period at Bell Centre for a 2-1 final score. But Habs fans are rightfully making noise about the fact Tampa Bay was clearly offside when bringing the…
New York is the largest media market in the country, and NBC is the home of the Stanley Cup Finals. That didn’t stop the Big Apple’s NBC affiliate from telling viewers this morning that “Nassau Coliseum could stay open for Game 8.”
