The photo — which, judging by the overwhelming number of NHL and CFL caps in the background, appears to have been taken at a Canadian sporting goods store — shows three Canada sweaters: a red home jersey, a white away and a black alternate. This is the first glimpse fans have gotten of the full set (a photo of the red sweater leaked three weeks ago), and the initial reaction has not been positive. “This jersey is like a really rotten and horribly smelling onion,” Reddit user “saint2e” commented. “The more layers I peel away, the more horrible it gets.” One aspect of the uniform that did not appear in the original leaked photo is the grouping of 12 golden maple leafs near the waistline. These appear to be used as championship designations, the same way many soccer clubs mark titles on t...

Sidney Crosby, Patrick Kane Featured on Sports Illustrated Covers, SI Predicts Blackhawks to Win Stanley Cup

The surprising news, perhaps, is that the NHL has made the cover of Sports Illustrated, an event that occurs just a handful of times a year.

The Rivalry Is About To Begin

from Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, The Penguins and Red Wings never have had a rivalry — they just happened to have great teams that produced two consecutive classic series in 2008 and 2009 — but, because of realignment, one finally might develop.
