One of the rarest of rare plays occurred during Saturday’s Lightning-Sabres game, when Steven Stamkos scored an own goal on a delayed penalty, after his pass attempt to Michael Kostka squirted past the Tampa Bay defenseman, banked off the boards, and ended up in his team’s empty net.
And in GIF form…
The own goal was eventually credited to the Sabres’ Cory Conacher, which...

This is always something guys have to worry about when your goalie is pulled and is a momentum killer. Cory Conacher was credited with the goal, which is especially funny...

The NHL trade deadline has come and gone and it was certainly a busy day for the Ottawa Senators.
The day’s events started when as expected, Cory Conacher was plucked from waivers by the… wait for it… Buffalo Sabres. As the team with the worst NHL record, this means that Conacher did make not make it past the team with the highest waiver priority. Given Tim Murray’s relationship...
