Gosh, I Really Hope The Red Wings Can Manage To Win A Game This Year Gosh, I Really Hope The Red Wings Can Manage To Win A Game This Year

They tried really hard. That’s really the best thing you can say about the Red Wings’ relatively close but still inevitable 3-1 loss to the Lightning on Thursday night. The Wings hung with the Bolts throughout the whole game, but eventually found themselves outdone by just a top-notch performance from Andrei…

Anthony Duclair Eats Shit, Gets Up, Scores Amazing Goal

Young Blue Jackets forward Anthony Duclair looked a little overeager to receive the puck with tons of space in the offensive zone in the first period tonight against the Flyers. And when Duclair skated in on net, a sudden attempt to change direction ended with him splatting on the ice.

Do The Capitals Or Golden Knights Have Any Chance Of Doing It Again? Do The Capitals Or Golden Knights Have Any Chance Of Doing It Again?

The combatants in last season’s Stanley Cup Final met a week into this young season and the rematch looked like a mismatch. The Capitals rode their hot offensive start to a 5-2 victory over the Golden Knights, who now have a 3-4-0 record that has commentators revving up their “I told you they were a fluke” takes. On…

The Oilers Finally, Finally Scored A Goal Without Connor McDavid The Oilers Finally, Finally Scored A Goal Without Connor McDavid

A lot of records are flukes. But some records, like, say, the one we’re going to start talking about in the next sentence, really do tell you everything you need to know about a player and his team, and about how it’s kind of a shame that that player is on that team. Last night, the Edmonton Oilers scored their very…

Jamie Benn And Miles Wood Got Real Feisty With Each Other

The Dallas Stars have had a less-than-ideal start to their week, falling 4-1 to the lowly Ottawa Senators on Monday and then getting their asses beat by the undefeated New Jersey Devils on Tuesday. With his team down 3-0 in the third period, Stars star Jamie Benn was a little bit peeved. Young Devils winger Miles…

State Senator Karin Housley, Wife Of Sabres Head Coach, Once Compared Michelle Obama To A Chimp State Senator Karin Housley, Wife Of Sabres Head Coach, Once Compared Michelle Obama To A Chimp

Karin Housley is a state senator in Minnesota and the wife of Buffalo Sabres head coach Phil Housley. She is also, according to the Huffington Post, one of those people who liked to make racist jokes on Facebook during the Obama administration.

Two Games For Chokeslamming Says Nothing About Mike Matheson's Intent, But A Lot About The NHL's

Panthers defenseman Mike Matheson has been handed a two-game suspension by the NHL for this slam on Vancouver’s Elias Pettersson, who is now out indefinitely with a concussion. It was an unnecessary hit, and yes, a dirty one, but there’s no way DoPS would have punished this if it hadn’t injured a young star.

Evgeny Kuznetsov Is A Goddamn Wizard

Considering how long the Stanley Cup celebrations over the summer lasted for the Washington Capitals, it’s a feat in its own right that they’re able to play any hockey at all, let alone win a game or two. Evgeny Kuznetsov in particular has shown that he’s shaken off the championship hangover, leading the team in…

This Is Why The Penguins Kept Phil Kessel This Is Why The Penguins Kept Phil Kessel

The Penguins finally showed some defensive fortitude last night, beating the Golden Knights 4-2 after giving up 11 goals in their first two games. But much more fun than Casey DeSmith’s 35 saves in his season debut were the first three Penguins goals, which came in natural hat trick form courtesy of the very good dog…

The Jets And Predators Are Brawling The Jets And Predators Are Brawling

Predators-Jets is the best sort of rivalry: one born almost solely from the fact that both teams are very good and each stands in the other’s way of the Central title, the West, and, perhaps ultimately, a Cup. And even though we’re months and months away from what we all hope is a playoff rematch of last year’s…

Give In And Enjoy The Leafs Give In And Enjoy The Leafs

This is all patently absurd:

Connor's Back

Connor McDavid got an assist on each of the Oilers’ goals in their 5-2 season-opening loss to the Devils, but heading into Edmonton’s second game—against the Bruins tonight—it had still been 196 horrible, awful days since hockey’s beautiful young stud had graced us with a goal.

What's Up With The Golden Knights? What's Up With The Golden Knights?

The sophomore slump has struck early. The Vegas Golden Knights, a year removed from a miracle inaugural season with a trip to the finals, are 1-3-0, and they aren’t scoring. That’s a problem against any team, but especially when trying to keep up with an offense like the defending champs’.

This Predators Banner Is So Embarrassing This Predators Banner Is So Embarrassing

Tuesday was the home opener for the Predators, and they celebrated their 2017–18 season, as they had every reason to; they were good as hell last year, despite falling in the second round to the also-good-as-hell Jets. So they raised some banners. Two of them, perfectly fine banners. One of them, not.

The Flyers' Home Opener Went So Badly, They're Swearing The Flyers' Home Opener Went So Badly, They're Swearing

Now, you pieces of shit know that I can’t abide cursing. There’s no fucking reason for an educated, grown man to resort to swear words. How goddamned bad could the Flyers’ home opener against the Sharks have been to spur not one, but two players to work blue?...Oh! Oh. Jesus fishfisting Christ. Yeah, that’s bad.

Belfast Giants Hockey Player Denied Ass-tonishing Goal By Boring Refs

Hockey moves blindingly fast. At its highest levels, it becomes a breakneck ballet, demanding split-second decision-making, nimble movement, and constant improvisation from its practitioners. In a recent game in the UK’s Elite Ice Hockey League, Belfast Giants forward Patrick Dwyer (formerly of the Carolina…

Detroit Arena To Replace Conspicuously Empty Red Seats With Less Conspicuously Empty Black Seats Detroit Arena To Replace Conspicuously Empty Red Seats With Less Conspicuously Empty Black Seats

Ever since the new, taxpayer-funded home of the Pistons and Red Wings opened in Detroit, people have taken note of the often empty seats surrounding the action. This was especially true during Pistons games last season, when the team consistently found itself playing in front of a sea of vacant red seats. The arena…

Ilya Kovalchuk Is Back And He Doesn't Look Half Bad

The L.A. Kings picked up their first win of this young season by defeating the Red Wings 4-2 on Sunday night. Back-up goalie Jack Campbell deserves plenty of the credit for those two points by holding strong for 36 saves in an emergency start, but perhaps the most encouraging work of the night came from the Kings’…

The Hurricanes' Victory Celebration Rules The Hurricanes' Victory Celebration Rules

The Carolina Hurricanes, after a long stretch of irrelevance, appear to finally be going in the right direction. They’re a young team with a lot of talent, and though they’re going to be sloppy at times (and their goaltending remains a mess), they should be a ton of fun to watch.

Artemi Panarin Is A Monster, And A Monster Headache For Columbus Artemi Panarin Is A Monster, And A Monster Headache For Columbus

Double-shifting in 3-on-3 overtime is dangerous, when every forward has to backcheck on every counterattack, and a tired skater could easily mean an odd-man rush the other way and sudden death. But that’s exactly what Artemi Panarin did for Columbus, staying on the ice for a line change in overtime against Detroit.…
