Malkin Making Moves

I hope everyone was able to watch the game between Pittsburgh and Washington on Monday night because that was everything that hockey should be. Yes, the defense was lacking at times, but man that was beautiful. Unsurprisingly, the star of the show was the #1 overall skater in fantasy to this point of the season, Evgeni Malkin. Malkin scored a hat trick in the second period and...

WATCH: Jamie Benn takes his anger out by snapping three sticks over his knee

There are a lot of ways to show your frustration. Phil Kessel’s preferred method is to make a series of odd faces on the bench. In the case of Jamie Benn, he decided to take his anger out on some of his own sticks by breaking one over his knee out on the ice and two over his knee while he was on the bench.

The lack of back-to-back losses since the new coach’s arrival made for a good narrative: Sullivan came in, studied the problems and then deftly turned the team...

Phil Kessel has had a really strong year, but even the best players in the NHL can get frustrated from time to time. Kessel showed some of that frustration in the funniest of ways, grumbling and making faces on the Penguins’ bench. Kessel is a GIF/meme goldmine in this short clip. The way he handles his mouth guard while throwing his tantrum is pretty impressive. Keep doing you, Phil.
