The past week was a very eventful week of hockey. Here's what you missed.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Rick Nash made one of the best passes I have ever seen against the Boston Bruins on Tuesday. With the Rangers down by a goal, Nash deked around a Bruins defenseman, fell to the ice but somehow still managed to make a ridiculous pass to Carl Hagelin. Hagelin just had to put it into an open net. A free goal for him. See for yourself...------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------TSN also had an awesome top ten a few days ago showcasing the best assists in NHL history. Click here to check it out! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Daniel Alfredsson is being referred to as god after the popular iPhone app, 'Siri', said he indeed is. When Siri is asked, "Show me a picture of god", a picture of Daniel Alfredsson shows up. Siri is used by many people for several different voice commands. Nobody really knows how this happened. "My money is on that it's a good prank that somebody has pulled within Apple. That would be my guess," said the Senators captain. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Perhaps the biggest and most unfortunate news in the hockey world this past week was Erik Karlsson's scary injury against the Pittsburgh Penguins. In a race for the puck along the boards with Matt Cooke, Erik Karlsson's left achilles was cut by Cooke's skate blade. Watch the video here.Image via Sportsnet--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Here's something you won't see every day. Ussually you see referees coming in and breaking up a fight, but in this case, the ref was the one fighting. After calling a hooking penalty on a player and then getting knocked over by him, this Russian referee decided to drop the gloves.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Thomas Vanek is continuing to have an unbelievable season, with 23 points in 13 games. That's a pace of over 145 points in an 82 game season (assuming he plays all 82 games). See the full NHL statistics here. Somehow though, the Sabres are still tied for dead last in the Eastern Conference.More interesting links from the past week in hockey...Thomas Greiss’ new goalie mask is horrifying (Photo)‘Outraged’ Senators owner Eugene Melnyk wants Cooke out of the league, burns the Leafs
