Does anyone care that the new NHL All-Star jerseys glow in the dark?

The list of great things that glow in the dark is very, very short. In fact, I can’t think of a single great thing that glows in the dark off the top of my head. That apparently doesn’t scare the NHL as they have decided to move forward with a glow-in-the-dark emblem on their All-Star Game sweater. You've seen the #NHLAllStar jerseys but did you know they do this? Just like...

Video: Sam Bennett passes the puck to himself, scores nifty backhand goal

Video: Brayden Schenn levels Torey Krug, fights Kevan Miller

Brayden Schenn was busy in a hurry in Wednesday’s contest between the Flyers and Bruins. First, he completely leveled Torey Krug. Then, he dropped the mitts with Kevan Miller who took exception to the hit. It’s always kind of annoying when a fight breaks out over a clean hit, but we might give this one a pass. What a hit it was. The post Video: Brayden Schenn levels Torey Krug...

A look back at the star-studded 2013 NHL Draft

The NHL draft tends to be pretty predictable. The vast majority of top picks turn into star players. If you’re picking in the top 10, there’s a good chance you’re getting a solid player at the very least. Picks 11-20 are filled with boom-or-bust type players. You’ll get your Marek Zagrapan types, but you’ll also get the Vlad Tarasenkos of the world. After the first round...

Alexander Ovechkin and the tough road to 500

While the romance of numbers left us a long time ago in other sports for various reasons, the 500-goal mark in hockey is still special. Perhaps more special now than it has ever been.

Islanders coach wants to make some roster changes

The New York Islanders have played some decent hockey this season, which has been good enough to keep them in the thick of the playoff picture. However, their play hasn’t been good enough to keep pace with the red-hot Capitals, and it hasn’t been good enough to create some breathing room in the crowded Eastern Conference. Head coach Jack Capuano has recognized the good play...

Malkin jokes about Ovechkin’s bad defending

The NHL All-Star Game is fun for several reasons, but one of the best is the fact it creates teammates out of rivals. Evgeni Malkin and Alex Ovechkin aren’t heated enemies, but they do skate for opposing franchises with a pretty colorful recent history. With that in mind, Malkin’s slight dig at Ovechkin’s defense is pretty great. Malkin playfully ribbed his buddy Ovechkin...
