Anaheim Ducks captain Rayn Getzlaf scored a fantastic goal on a great individual effort to knot the game at 1-1. Getzlaf knocked down the puck and then muscled his way towards the net and buried the puck short side high glove.

Nick Saban, AJ McCarron and Katherine Webb in one photo. I’m sure Alabama Crimson Tide fans will love this pic. Pretty surprising to see a sketch of Nick Saban in AJ McCarron’s house. Wonder how many players have sketches of their coaches in their house? [@DeeDeeBonner] The post AJ McCarron Has Picture Of Nick Saban In His House appeared first on Diehardsport.
I swear it seems like there is a new jersey unveiling every single day this time of year. The Washington Huskies were the latest school to unveil their new football uniforms and they look pretty good. I’m a big fan of the new style numbers, with the multiple colors, and I’m glad they kept the all-white and all-purple combos. The new all-white helmet is pretty cool and definitely...
Late in the third period and deadlocked at 0-0, Pavel Datsyuk was up to his old tricks and scored this absolutely filthy goal on the Boston Bruins. To pull off that move in the neutral zone not only takes skill, it takes serious guts. The magic man truly has no equal.

Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic was up to his old ways on Friday night, cup checking Detroit Red Wings defenseman Danny DeKeyser. It’s too bad that this play went unpenalized and that he probably won’t get a fine. Especially when Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville got a $25,000 fine for grabbing his junk on Thursday night. This has to stop; no place in the game...
Emotions ran high during Game 2 of the Montreal Canadiens-Tampa Bay Lightning series. Radko Gudas and Brandon Prust went at it in front of the net when it finally boiled over for the first fight of this postseason. Nothing crazy, just a good old fashioned tilt between these two.

Billy Hamilton may be one of the fastest players in baseball, but that quickness didn’t transfer to his brain on Friday afternoon. The Reds’ center fielder struck out embarrassingly on a Jeff Samardzija two seamer, swinging ridiculously late and chopping at the pitch. Even the announcers couldn’t believe it.
Hamilton must’ve watched...

The Minnesota Wild were up 4-3 and had a chance to clinch the first game of the series but Colorado Avalanche defenseman Erik Johnson saved the day. Johnson’s amazing hustle to keep the puck out of the net kept the Avs in the game, and allowed Paul Stastny to tie the game with 13 seconds left.

Game 1 of the Blues vs. Blackhawks series on Thursday night ended in triple OT, courtesy of Alex Steen, who led the team in goals this year. The game-winner was an absolute beauty; David Backes went behind-the-back to Steve Ott in front, who slid the puck back to Steen, who went upstairs.

During double overtime of the Blues vs. Blackhawks game on Thursday night, Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville thought that St. Louis should’ve been called for a delay of game penalty. The call was not made, and Quenneville proceeded to make this Michael Jackson-esque gesture towards the refs.
Here are some hilarious tweets that were posted after the incident:
During the first overtime of Thursday night’s Game 1 of the Blackhawks vs. Blues series, Maxim Lapierre saved the game for St. Louis when Ryan Miller was down and out. Lapierre, who got pushed into the crease by Brandon Saad, happened to be in position when Kris Versteeg fired a shot on the Notes’ empty net. Acting like Ryan Miller, he made the save like a warrior.
This is playoff...
If you’ve ever arrived early to a hockey game, you’d know that music is always playing during warmups. However, before Game 1 of the Sharks vs. Kings series on Thursday night, the power went out around an hour before game time at the SAP Center in San Jose. So, the teams warmed up in silence, awkwardly. Apparently, teams from Northern California have trouble with the power...
Thursday night’s Blues vs. Blackhawks game did not disappoint. Game 1 of the 2-3 Western Conference matchup was a thriller through 2 periods, including Patty Kane’s breakaway goal and this amazing sprawling save from Corey Crawford.
Ryan Miller’s going to have to play better if St. Louis is going to win this series; he gave up 3 goals on his first 7 shots.

On Thursday night during C.C. Sabathia’s first win of the season, the Yankees pulled off a 5-4-3 triple play. While this is a pretty rare feat, it was relatively easy to turn, as Sean Rodriguez hit the ball right to Kelly Johnson on third base. Last year’s 4-6-5-3-4 that the Yanks turned was much more impressive.
The Taiwanese animators really outdid themselves this time with their synopsis of the SEC Bag Man story from SB Nation. This video is pure genius and the line at the end that says the “SEC stands for straight earning cash” is brilliant. If you haven’t already read the SB Nation story, you absolutely must.

In Wednesday night’s Celtics vs. Wizards game, Boston point guard Phil Pressey made a beautiful, no-look, between-the-legs pass to Brandon Bass for an easy lay-in. The former Missouri Tiger wasn’t highly favored to play much this year after being a 2nd round pick, but found ways to contribute in 15:05 minutes of average playing time this season.

Montreal Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin celebrated pretty hard after their overtime win, but perhaps he should work on his dance moves:
Thanks to Ellen DeGeneres, taking a selfie has become an epidemic. This time a Tampa Bay Lightning fan, who is far too old to be taking selfies, took the opportunity to take one when there was a scrum right in front of him.

The Anaheim Ducks were up 4-3 with 16 seconds left and poised to take home the first game of the series when this happened. A rolling puck led to a Tyler Seguin slapshot that hit Ryan Getzlaf right in the mouth. Play was stopped immediately and Getzlaf left the ice. I’m guessing that Getzlaf will be okay because of how quickly he got up, but he’s definitely going to be short...
Kevin Durant had a busy Wednesday night; he brought down the hammer on Andre Drummond early on, threw down the game-winning dunk, and clinched the 2 seed in the West for the Thunder.
KD had another fantastic season, averaging 31.9 PPG, 5.5 APG, and 7.4 RPG en route to his fifth straight scoring title, a feat that only Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar have accomplished. We’ll...

Montreal Canadiens forward Dale Weise missed a check that had brutal repercussions for him. He left his feet and when he missed the check, he flew between the glass to join CBC’s Glenn Healy. This will be one of the best GIFs from the playoffs.
