It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
If you watched any of the NHL All Star Breakaway Challenge on Saturday night, it started off as an abortion. The contest winner was to be picked by fan voting and didn't even have to put the puck in the net. The first four or five tries were horrid. Some guys didn't even get a shot off they were so worried about being cute.
But, once the shooters relaxed a little bit, it got interesting. The Blackhawks Patrick Kane put on a good show with the Superman act. However, the most entertaining display was put on by the goalies - Montreal's Carey Price and St. Louis' Brian Elliott. Because putting the puck in the net was irrelevant, the goalies decided it was their time to yuck it up.
Elliott stood still. Price pulled out the Tebow. Then Price (as shown above) made a no-look save.

The first game St. Louis Blues goalie Brian Elliott plays following the All-Star break will likely feel like a walk in the park compared to what he faced Sunday afternoon in the NHL All-Star Game in Ottawa.
Elliott, the Blues' lone All-Star representative, was the third goalie to see action for Team Alfredsson. He faced 19 shots in the third period alone and allowed six goals...
Morning puck addicts!
So did you enjoy the All-Star skills competition yesterday? I did. Moreover, how freakin' entertaining was Carey Price all mic'd up?
It's funny, because most in Montreal that cover the Canadiens are pretty familiar with his sense of humour. But, yesterday, the rest of the league's fans got a taste of Price's hilarity during the breakaway...
It's always swell when half of your team's leadership is concussed.
"What if?" That's a question that usually has a negative connotation. What if the starting goalie goes down? What if the team's leading scorer gets knocked out of the season? What if the defense gets so decimated that half of the corps is made up of AHL guys? What if, what if what if...
MONTREAL – The Montreal Canadiens announced Monday that forward Andreas Engqvist has been recalled from...
Morning puck fans!
Well, that was rough last night. The 3-1 score, which featured an empty netter for Patrick Kaleta, is not quite indicative of the game.
With the Sabres getting 40 shots in the contest, it was never really that close.
Thank goodness Carey Price was not playing looking towards the glass or it could have been far worse.
Meanwhile, elsewhere in the league...
Tim Tebow may be done playing until next season, but Tebowing is still going strong. Carey Price gave up a free goal during the All-Star breakaway challenge on Saturday night, all in the name of the Tebow. Islanders forward Rob Tavares gave the crowd a treat with a fancy goal during the event, and as you can see Price had no intention of standing in the way. He saw it as an...
The Sabres and Canadiens both won their final games before the All-Star break and the disappointing Northeast Division foes will try to keep heading in the right direction when they clash tonight at Montreal's Bell Centre.
