Here We Go Again Here We Go Again

With their 4-2 series win over Columbus, the Capitals are going to play in their seventh second-round playoff series in the last 11 years. That’s incredible! Don’t ask how they did in those second-round series.

Toronto Wins Toronto Wins

Ten people were killed and 15 others hospitalized on Monday when a man drove a rented van onto the sidewalk and plowed through pedestrians for more than half a mile on one of Toronto’s busiest streets. It feels almost rote by this point to transition from tragedy to sporting event, but it makes sense. Where else but…

We're All Very Lucky We Don't Have To Watch Another Flyers Game For Six Months We're All Very Lucky We Don't Have To Watch Another Flyers Game For Six Months

No sport really needs four rounds of playoffs. Sure, you get the occasional good first-round series, but mostly it’s about weeding out the fatally flawed teams before they have a chance to shit up the later rounds, which in theory should be quality hockey all-around. The Flyers are out of the playoffs, thank goodness,…

Tuukka Rask Ruined The Maple Leafs' Best And Maybe Last Chance Tuukka Rask Ruined The Maple Leafs' Best And Maybe Last Chance

This was the Maple Leafs’ chance, and it was probably their season.

NHL Linesman Can't Stop Getting Gruesomely Injured NHL Linesman Can't Stop Getting Gruesomely Injured

Capitals winger Andre Burakovsky suffered an “upper-body injury” on a big check in Sunday’s 5-4 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets, and will not travel to Columbus for the series’ next two games. He got off easy compared to linesman Steve Barton.

The Golden Knights Won't Be Pushed Around The Golden Knights Won't Be Pushed Around

Game 3 was going to be nasty, and the Golden Knights knew it. With the Kings down 2-0 and the series leaving Vegas, where the Knights have been so good at home (the “Vegas Flu” is real, but so is their home-crowd advantage), Los Angeles was going to come out pesty and physical, finishing their checks, talking a ton of…

Okay, Confirmed, Evander Kane Is A "Playoff Player" Okay, Confirmed, Evander Kane Is A "Playoff Player"

In his ninth season, in his fourth city, Evander Kane had played 574 games without ever making the playoffs. (That was just five games shy of Carolina’s Jeff Skinner, who now has no real challengers.) So when Kane earlier this week called himself a “playoff player,” he was talking style, not experience.

Winnipeg's Been Waiting A Long Time For This Winnipeg's Been Waiting A Long Time For This

It had been 22 years since a Winnipeg Jets team won a playoff game, and that wasn’t even these Winnipeg Jets. That was a different franchise altogether; it’s in Arizona now. This Jets franchise, including its time in Atlanta, had never won a playoff game. But before a crazy, popcorn-erupting, whited-out crowd, the…

This Is What Playoff Hockey In Vegas Looks Like

The Vegas Golden Knights, the expansion NHL team that somehow won its division, were the best story in hockey this year.

To A Predators Fan Feeling Awful Today To A Predators Fan Feeling Awful Today

Drag yourself out of bed, depressed Predators fan. Peel your face off the pillow; blink away the light that means a new day came anyway, no matter how little you wanted it to. Let the memories of last night, and your Stanley Cup final loss, rush in. It’s all going to hurt. I’m going to show you a couple of videos…

The Penguins Are History The Penguins Are History

Arguments against this pronouncement may be lodged but will be dismissed: What the Pittsburgh Penguins have done—win back-to-back Stanley Cups under the salary cap—is the single most impressive feat of the NHL’s modern era.

The 2017 Hockey Night In Canada Season-Ending Montage Is Here The 2017 Hockey Night In Canada Season-Ending Montage Is Here

Realizing the NHL season is over for a few months while watching the victorious team parade with the Stanley Cup really sucks, but each year the Hockey Night in Canada folks help add some sweet to that bitter with its annual montage of this season’s best Stanley Cup Playoffs moments. (The music this time around is…

Angry Nashville Fan Gives Mike Milbury A Profane Piece Of His Mind On Live TV

It’s music to everyone’s ears to hear some enraged fan tell NBC hockey commentator Mike Milbury that he “fucking sucks.” He does fucking suck!

Penguins Win Fifth Stanley Cup

A Patric Hornqvist goal with 90 seconds left in the third period gave Pittsburgh the lead they needed as the Penguins claimed the Stanley Cup for the second straight year, winning by an eventual score of 2-0 after a late empty-net goal by Carl Hagelin.

Officials' Blunder Costs Nashville Game-Opening Goal

The Predators’ Colton Sissons scored just a minute into the second period of a 0-0 Stanley Cup Final Game 6, only for it to be declared no goal due to an early whistle from an official. Maybe Ted Leonsis is onto something?

Remember P.K. Subban and Sidney Crosby chirping in Game 3, which led to Subban claiming (joking) Crosby said his breath stank? Here’s what was actually said, as picked up by the on-ice mics. It’s a lot less creative. [Puck Daddy]

Steelers K Chris Boswell Kicked Out Of Penguins Game Steelers K Chris Boswell Kicked Out Of Penguins Game

Steelers kicker Chris Boswell says he was ejected from last night’s Penguins 6-0 Game 6 win in Pittsburgh for getting overly excited during a rare SCF line brawl.

The Stanley Cup Final Has Gotten Nasty The Stanley Cup Final Has Gotten Nasty

For the first time since 2011, we’ve got a final that appears to have some legitimate bad blood. The Penguins walloped the Predators 6-0 to take a 3-2 series lead, and a blowout is just the thing to increase tensions. The war of words between P.K. Subban and Sidney Crosby boiled over into a ground-and-pound clinic,…

Mike Milbury On Sidney Crosby Grinding P.K. Subban's Head Into The Ice: He "Had It Coming" Mike Milbury On Sidney Crosby Grinding P.K. Subban's Head Into The Ice: He "Had It Coming"

NBC broadcaster Mike Milbury is scarcely a month removed from declaring P.K. Subban a “clown” who deserved a “rap on the head” for daring to get loose during warmups by dancing on the ice. He’s now continued that fine legacy of wishing ill upon Subban, saying tonight that the defenseman deserved to get his head…
