Only When We Wake Up…

Did that really just happen?  I keep waiting to wake up and find that it was all just some horrible nightmare.  I’m Leo Dicaprio, spinning that totem, waiting for it to keep spinning to let me know that this is some cruel inception. But unfortunately it is not. Game 6 really did happen. The Bruins […]

Chuck’s Friday Night

Let me preface this by saying that I’m not typically a girl that goes to bars alone. Mainly, because it makes me feel more acutely single than I already do and also because I try not to drink alone. Last Friday, I set aside my rule and ventured out to my local in the pouring […]

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 […]

Playoff Prognostications

Maybe our pre-season predictions weren’t perfect, but we’re hoping for more luck with these.  If we picked our own teams to advance it’s because we feel they can.  We know they will.  Nothing else is acceptable, RIGHT? Yet we remind ourselves, and you, these are the Stanley Cup Playoffs.  No team is safe.  Not even […]

Landeskog for President

Oh wait… He was born in Sweden. Since that won’t work, I guess we’ll just have to settle for “Captain.”  This is my Captain face. Today, the Avalanche made history by making the 19-year-old the youngest captain in NHL history. Take that, Sidney Crosby. Landeskog is 19 year, 286 days old – 11 days younger […]

Los Angeles Kings – Stanley Cup Champs

Remember yesterday when I said that the Kings needed to play like a hockey Borg to win the Stanley Cup… Well, folks.  They did just that. New Jersey Devils resistance was utterly futile. Last night, the Kings went into full-on beast mode and beat the New Jersey Devils 6-1 to clinch the first Stanley Cup […]

One Win Away…

So Game 5 didn’t exactly turn out as we hoped, but tonight, the Kings have the chance to close out the series (again) and win their first ever Stanley Cup. While we don’t like the Devils, we have to give them props for not laying down in front of the purple and black freight train […]

Kings Of The Road

If any of you have watched NBC’s Post Game wrap-up, then you know Other-Brother-Darryl needs to take that sh*t on the road! Because having handled talent and sat through countless hours of interviews and seen press chewed up and spat out by the best, Other-Brother-Darryl ranks right up there only he is god damn funny […]

Pancakes Makes French Toast – Carter Tricks for Hats

The Kings devastated the Coyotes last night in more ways than one. The Coyotes bit back and not in a nice way. I was going to take the high road in this post and talk about how adorable Antoine Vermette was in his pre-game interview but then the Coyotes took a page from the Penguin’s book […]

Kings Kickin' Butt

So the LA King’s have lost only one play-off game so far … No, that is not a typo. ONE. Coach Dave Tippett of the Coyotes, seems to be the only other person on the planet besides me, the only LA KINGS fans (OK – I know there are like – four of us) who know […]

All Hail Jarret Stoll!

 So the Kings making it past Vancouver was like this happening … And it was all because of the guy with the most AWESOME hair this side of the Mississippi! And I can attest from seeing it in person. HOLY CRAP! It deserves a post of its own – hell, it deserves a facebook page of its […]

Cruel Summer – Penguins

For a few days after something bad happens, you don’t want to be cheered up.  You want to drown in a cocktail shaker or eat an entire wedding cake.  If you’re me, you picked a bright orange heavy bag and kickboxed the crap out of it a la Captain America. Then life goes on.  Other […]

Mikey Monday: It's Time

I spent a portion of Saturday night fighting off a panic attack that the Caps had dropped to 9th place in the East.  That was after Gator, Deb (@DLF1021) and I watched them blow a three goal lead to lose in OT on Friday night.  Hockey is why I don’t keep snacks in the house, I’d […]

The Kid Stays in the Picture

So. Much. Happy. Hurrah for Gabe Landeskog on one hell of a game. After missing the pre-game skate with flu-like symptoms, he somehow managed to tough it out and score the game-winning goal (his 4th GWG of the season) versus the Kings in OT last night. When I have the flu, all I want to do […]


MAYDAY! MAYDAY! Help! The Bruins are teetering precariously on the edge of the abyss…and they are threathening to take me with them. Saturday, they lost to the Capitals.  Yesterday, they got violated by the Penguins.  Patrice Bergeron and Adam McQuaid both got injured.  With Nathan Horton, Rich Peverley, Beniot Pouliot, and Tuukka Rask already out, […]

Well, it's not good news…

The always-excellent today has a translated Swedish interview with Nicky – read it here. He hopes to be ready for the playoffs.  That’s two months away.  I know he hasn’t skated in forever, isn’t attending home games and even Mike went on vacation without him, but seeing it in print is really bumming me […]

Keep Your Chin Up

I want the Tampa Bay Lightning to play better, because they are such a happy crew.  Behind-the-scenes from the Tampa Bay Magazine cover story: And there’s adorable video too [link]. The Bolts are 11-13-2, while the cross-state Panthers are killing it and leading the division.  That’s right, I said the PANTHERS.  Remember when Rob Niedermayer […]

Good work, Captain Duck.

Yesterday, seven-time All-Star (and former U of Maine Black Bear) Paul Kariya retired. Kariya had 402 goals and 989 points in 989 career games and played for 15 years. He probably could have played longer…were it not for that pesky little villain all hockey fans HATE…the concussion. Kariya didn’t play at all last season as he attempted […]

Bye Bye Beardy?

Who’s gonna keep their playoff beard?  Who’s ready to say goodbye? Check out 0:23 mark. Best faces ever! Someone please GIF these for us.  Please? [brightcove vid=995581138001&exp3=16977198001&surl=,AAAAAA6piHY~,DqRT40XOAr8wI0s0AlLx8-XNKKxaCNBM&w=440&h=356]


When hockey players are this happy, so are we. So much love. [brightcove vid=995747704001&exp3=16977198001&surl=,AAAAAA6piHY~,DqRT40XOAr8wI0s0AlLx8-XNKKxaCNBM&w=440&h=356]
