Video: AHL goalie doesn’t know the shootout started, still makes save

Just when you think you’ve seen it all in hockey, something happens that completely catches you off guard. Such was the case in the shootout between the AHL’s Wolf Pack and Monarchs where one goaltender wasn’t aware the shootout started. Amazingly enough, he still makes the save. How bad does the shooter feel that he couldn’t even score on a goalie who wasn’t paying attention...

John Scott demolished the Islanders’ Mikhail Grabovski last night

I strongly dislike John Scott. He’s a worthless goon who has no business being in the NHL. Particularly at the expense of a guy like Paul Bissonnette, who despite also being a goon at the very least resembles a real life hockey player. But this is the cleanest of devastating hits you will ever see. continue reading...
