WATCH: Jagr passes Messier on assists list

It didn’t take long for Jaromir Jagr to pass Mark Messier for second all time in points in the NHL, as his third period assist against the Bruins gave him 1,888 career points. But let’s just say it wasn’t the prettiest pass in the world. If Jagr keeps getting assists like that, it’s going to be very tough for him to play until he’s 50. But I still hope he tries. From...

We’ll go out on a limb and say the Tampa Bay Lighting’s new deal for star center Steven Stamkos won’t go down as a bust, but not all NHL marriages are as lucky. And even Hall of Famers aren’t immune.

WATCH: Cuba Gooding Jr.'s odd behavior at NHL Awards

For some reason, Cuba Gooding Jr. was chosen to be a presenter at Tuesday night’s NHL Awards. And his performance and demeanor on stage were even more awkward than you’d think. He started off talking about a “reverse oreo,” which poked fun about being in the middle of Mark Messier and Adam Graves. But this wasn’t stand-up comedy hour, and it wasn’t the right time for...
