Intern Hat Trick!

We will never hear the end of this one.   Only kidding.  Congratulations Intern Jeff Skinner on his first career hat trick! Look how excited everyone is!  Especially Jordan! Especially us! And these people in the Intern Jeff Skinner Fan Club – Nashville Chapter! (Psst: We told you so.) Forget that.  More exclamation points!!!!!  Jeff […]

The NeverEnding Story

When we don’t post for a few days, it’s safe to say we’re either a) really busy or b) laughing so hysterically over the cat face in #21 of 35 Greatest Animal Photobombers of All Time that we can’t type.  Yet through our tears, we see big events are happening. Tonight, the man we call Squishy […]

Mile High Club

We hear the teams out west are pretty good this year. Did you make it all the way down here?  Does it make any sense the only Western Conference team we ever talk about is the Oilers? Perhaps we are trying to make our Eastern Conference-selves feel better about topping out at #6 in the […]

Foxy Friday: Alexander Steen

Who the hell is Alexander Steen? That’s what we said. We’re used to seeing names like Crosby, Ovechkin, and Sedin atop the NHL stats page but then we see this… And we’re all… St. Louis Blues forward Alexander Steen has been tearing…it…up this season. He’s got 14 goals & 20 points so far.  Blues are […]

Please, Hertl, Don’t Hurt ‘Em

Hertl for Calder. Okay, so perhaps it is a bit premature to be saying that, but after what Tomas Hertl did last night, can you really blame us? The San Jose Sharks rookie forward scored 4 goals (!) last night.  Each goal he scored was more impressive than the one before and his piece de […]

Foxy Friday: Gregory Campbell – The Sequel

Normally we don’t tend to feature the same player twice in our Foxy Friday feature, but after what Gregory Campbell did on Wednesday night, how could we not? from bosstownsports.tumblr.com In case you’ve been living under a rock since Wednesday, just take a moment to review what transpired to bring about this Foxy Friday Sequel. […]

A Flair for the Dramatic

Patrice Bergeron certainly has a flair for the dramatic, doesn’t he? First, his game tying and then game winning OT goal verses Toronto in Round 1 and now this.   While credit goes to Bergeron for scoring the goal, mad props go to Jaromir Jagr for making it all possible.  His play on Evgeni Malkin […]

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 […]

It’s Good to be… Rick Nash

Last night, my hockey/lumberjack boyfriend scored his 300th NHL goal. Rick Nash was all…   And I was all… Then Rick Nash scored his 301st career goal. He was all…   And I was all… Flyers did managed to score two goals – including one that one off of Jake Voracek’s face – but alas […]

We Want More!

When someone talks to me about Steven Stamkos scoring goals:   And Stammer never lets a girl down.  Last night he scored his 200th career goal in the Lightning win over the Flyers.  Bonus yay. Alone in my car with Game Center Live radio playing on my phone, I yelled, “Hey girl, I’m Steven Stamkos!” Not […]

Saturday Night Seguin

The last couple of days have been crazy.  Slammed at work. Prepping huge event. Plus 6-day work trip to Seattle. Just when I think that it is all too much, I see this photo and feel instantly better.   photo courtesy of boston.com & Jessica Deitsch Thanks, Tyler Seguin, for just being you. We appreciate you […]

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 […]

Birthday Boy: Tyler Seguin

January 31, 2013. The day we’ve all been waiting patiently for. The day we’ll all feel slightly less creepy staring at photos of men 10+ years younger than us. Today is Tyler Seguin’s birthday. And not just any birthday, but his 21st birthday. Shots of Patron for everybody! Oh lord, help us all. People of […]

Birthday Boy: Wayne Gretzky

As a hockey blog, we would be remissed if we didn’t give a big, huge birthday shout out to the one…the only…the greatest of all time (aka the GOAT)… Mr. Wayne Gretzky The Great One turns 52 years  young today!  Born January 26, 1961 in Brantford, Ontario, Gretzky is without a doubt the best player […]

Just Can’t Hide It

Everybody’s talking about Nail Yakupov‘s goal-scoring celebration last night, when he tied the game vs. Los Angeles. .gif by www.sbnation.com Most people love it.  There are some complaints that it’s too much, too showy, that goal scorers should “act like you’ve been here before.” Guess which side I’m on? LOOK HOW EXCITED HE IS!!  He’s 19 […]

Five Things – Bruins vs. Rangers

Last night, the Bruins squared off against the Rangers for the 2nd time this young season. Unfortunately, the Bruins lost (or fortunately, the Rangers won, depending on how you look at it) in OT. This game had it all.  A hat trick. Saves. Blocked shots. A geek fight. And a boy named Dougie. Thing #1 […]

Giroux Gets the G, er… C.

I’m swamped today, but there’s always time for this! Claude Giroux named Captain of the Flyers Of course, you know that already [Press Release].  Personally I would have gone with Briere (shocking).  Can our Flyer fan friends weigh on Claude’s locker room leadership type?  It’s certainly good marketing sense to make your highest profile player […]

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 […]
