    Generally when we pick our goal of the night we look for instances where a ridiculous set of dekes took place to fake a goalie out of their jock. Other times it’ll be when someone who never gets on the score sheet manages to do so in a big way. Something we don’t reward nearly…

    When you’re a rookie in the NHL, life is hard. It’s often made even harder when goalies like Devan Dubnyk are leaping out of their breezers to make a glove save to take away a goal. Such is life for Devils Mattias Tedenby in this highlight from last night’s New Jersey 4-3 overtime win over…

    Six games, three one-goal wins, two blowouts, and one superstar earning himself a big pile or redemption with his home fans. Just another night in the NHL, eh? Buckle up for your ride on the Zamboni. Pittsburgh 5 – Tampa Bay 1 Speaking of redemption stories, Marc-Andre Fleury was saluted by the fans after the…

    The Coyotes were in need of a big win tonight and if you had Vernon Fiddler in your non-existent pool of “who would lead the charge” tonight against Calgary to get the win, then you’d be a very hysterical gambler. Fiddler’s hat trick helped the Coyotes earn the win over the Flames tonight in Glendale…

    Wonder what got into the Blues last night that made them want to go after R.J. Umberger? Turns out he hates indoor soccer and more about St. Louis.

    Dwayne Roloson didn’t see a lot of shots last night in the Isles 1-0 loss to the Ducks. With Roloson facing just 14 shots, you’d have to think he’d be really bored out there and get rusty through the night. Not so fast, friends. Roloson was outstanding late in the game in stopping the ageless…

    The Boston BruinsĀ  had tied the game in the third at 4-4 and the Pens were reeling so of course it would be enforcer Shawn Thornton that would score the dagger goal that would put the Bruins ahead for good, right? It’s only logical. Thornton’s goal gave the Bruins the lead in a game they…

    So you think it would be easy being a rich superstar athlete wouldn’t you? Not if you’re Ilya Kovalchuk of the New Jersey Devils so far this year. Kovalchuk has struggled scoring goals this year, but you’d think in the shootout against the Sabres he’d stand a good chance of getting it done. Whether he’s…
