Sunshine and Tan Lines

I never imagined I’d thank the Rangers for anything, but the day has come. Reminder: Chris Kreider went to BC.  See also: I hate myself. The Rangers took to the beach in Venice to shake off their Game 1 OT loss and work on their tans.  Pale guys with beards – that’s what playoff hockey is all […]

Tyler Tuesday: Beardspiration

Tyler and the Dallas Stars giving new meaning to the phrase “by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin”. They just squeeked into the playoffs and took then second Wild Card spot in the West.  I’m genuinely excited for Tyler (really I am!), given the circumstances of his departure from Boston.  He has matured into a high […]

Tyler Tuesday: Step Aside, Mortals

Once there was a man.  His name was Daryl Reaugh, aka Razor.  Once this man did an interview with Tyler Seguin.  A photo was taken. This photo, to be exact. In any other realm, we’d be talking about Razor in this photo because he’s kinda of a Harrison and his suit game is mad tight. But not […]

Foxy Friday: Brandon Bollig

By popular demand, repeated Tweets and just an overall campaign of “WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!”, today’s selection is the NHL’s Most Likely to Be Suggested. Foxy Friday: Brandon Bollig Why does Brandon get so many nominations?  Could it be: – The perfect beard? – Stylish outfits? – His excellent taste in music? – Putting […]

Birthday Boy: Patrice Bergeron

Happy 28th Birthday to the one…the only…the Boston legend himself, Patrice Bergeron. Even if you don’t like the Bruins , you love Patrice. Even Pants loves Patrice. I mean, just look at him. The way he plays. The way he carries himself. His face. There is a reason I call him ‘Perfect Patrice’.  

Beard of the Year

It’s here… #BeardWatch2013′s Beard of the Year!  I had to do this one solo, as Chuck is away, but I’m sure she will appreciate it from her European Vacation.  There were so many possibilities this year – manly beards as far as the eye can see.  An excellent problem to have. Read it here: Yahoo Puck […]

BeardWatch2013: We’re Holding Out for a Hero

“We need a hero. We’re holding out for a hero to the end of the night.  He’s gotta have a beard and he’s gotta have fuzz. And he’s gotta be fresh from the ice.” ~ Chuck & Pants It’s Conference Final time, and every hockey fan knows it’s often a new guy, a third-liner or […]

BeardWatch 2013: The Ginger Beard Edition

Never in considering playoff beards or writing this informative and newsworthy weekly feature did we expect to find that so many people share our affinity for ginger beards. You’re all into hockey, that’s enough to make us friends. This common captivation with facial hair takes our relationship to the next level. Since we’ve made ginger […]

Foxy Friday: Henrik Zetterberg

Well folks, it’s the final Friday of April, which means the final entry for the Foxy Friday Fan Challenge. This week,  Brenda (@wishinonehand) wins again.  We swear it isn’t nepotism, but when you submit good stuff, we have to share it. And this one is most defintely a keeper. Sadly, we don’t get to watch […]

Foxy Friday: Chris Higgins

As desperately as we might have tried, we cannot ignore Chris Higgins. I mean, he’s a Canuck, for pete’s sake.  AND a Montreal Canadien. These alone make our skin crawl.  It fills us with the fire of a thousands suns.  It makes us rage like a Desperate Housewife who has drank up all her chardonnay and […]

Foxy Friday: Adam McQuaid

Mullets.  Eyebrows.  Fights. Three things we love and post about probably more often than is normal.  But we can’t help it. And when you have all three AT THE SAME TIME – well, we’re just smitten.  We must honor you with our most prestigious award. This week’s Foxy Friday is Adam McQuaid of the Boston Bruins This […]

By the Beard of Zanon!

No secret that Pants and I appreciated a good beard, especially come playoff time. So you can imagine my utter delight when I saw this while watching the Stars vs. Avalanche game last night. GREAT ODIN’S RAVEN! Now that is a beard! It redefines the term “Fear the Beard”.  With the helmet on, this thing […]

Hit Me Like A Mack Truck

…if a Mack truck wore a NY Rangers sweater. Here I was, just minding my own, thinking I was doing all well with the return of hockey.  I was just going to ease right back into it and get my bearings…then BAM…Rick Nash. Damn you, Rick Nash.  Damn you and your LLBean-boyfriend good looks and […]

I Would Walk 3,821 Miles

3,821 miles. That is what separates me from Rick Nash. While I am left here to wallow in my ever increasing depression over the state of the NHL, Rick is over in Switzerland just having a grand ole time. He’s climbing the Alps and making snowmen with Joe Thornton. He’s looking impossibly adorable in a ridiculous uniform. […]

Whyyouwannabringmedown?

As if the lockout wasn’t bad enough, Steven Stamkos hates me.  He seems to think that in this terrible time, I should suffer even more. I’m not even talking about those pants. A beard?!  Stopityouarekillingme!  How dare you look this charming and reference the playoffs when the only hockey I can get is reruns of […]

Selke Smooth

While the NHL Awards are far from and probably never will be perfect, there are a few things that they get right. Take last night for instance. Last night, Patrice Bergeron FINALLY won the Frank J. Selke Trophy. All is right in the hockey universe. If you read this blog, or follow our twitter, or […]
