Playoff Predictions: Wild Wild West

Now onto the Western Conference Playoff Predictions, where we be like… Disclaimers: Chuck: I have watched some Western Conferences games this year, but those 10pm start times are killers. My predictions are based off:  the games I HAVE watch; NHL Network, what I’ve read about the teams, and Ms. Cleo. Pants: I need to be honest […]

Night Moves

I had a good night.  Did you guys have a good night? Fleury throws another shutout, Pens lead Rangers 2-1 MAF had his second shutout in as many days, standing on his head at times to keep the NYR off the board in Game 3.  Not bad for a goalie who has playoff confidence problems, right? […]

Happy Monday

Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone!  I got to wear shorts and a tank top this weekend AND the Penguins won last night, so I don’t even hate Mondays.  It’s Day 20 of the playoffs, and if you spent the past few days enjoying the sun, here’s what was happening on TV: Penguins and Rangers series […]

Of Course It Did

Well… Last night I was very PANIC! AT THE DISCO.  I feel a little better this morning , so allow me to re-edit my thoughts. Blue Jackets: 4; Penguins: 3 [Series tied 2-2] Listen, Fleury has been the Penguins’ best player all series.  Sometimes he is their only player actually playing.  So much has been […]

The Night Before

Allow me to present the Day 6 update as an autobiographical look at my catastrophic emotional instability. Penguins: 4, Blue Jackets 3 [Pens lead series 2-1] This game started and an instant later the Jackets had scored two goals.  Okay, maybe it took 3:18, but it felt like a heartbeat.  The Penguins were not ready, not willing and not […]

Day One

There are two ways to spend any night during the NHL Playoffs: Enjoy a composed evening of important hockey that matters on a theoretical level, but not to your team. Like me, last night: One goal games all around, and no one made it look easy.  Here we go, Round One: Day One already gearing […]

Foxy Friday: Ryan Getzlaf

If you didn’t watch NHL Revealed during the Olympics, you missed the season’s best hockey programming.  Go pay for the extended episodes on iTunes – they’re worth it – then come back and know why we say: Foxy Friday: Ryan Getzlaf Ryan Getzlaf exists for two reasons: To make you laugh. To make his awkward […]

How to Make Fans and Influence People

People always say we ignore the Western Conference (we do), so today let’s talk about the Anaheim Ducks. Back in October, the Ducks lost their season opener 6-1 to Colorado.  That’s not exactly how a team wants to ring in a new year.  You know they had a post-game talk about shaking it off, getting […]

Foxy Friday: Andrew Cogliano

It’s time to bring back to our favorite day, and with feeeeeeeeeling. Foxy Friday: Andrew Cogliano From way out west (and arguably the League’s coldest arena), we bring you a guy who knows his way around hockey.  Since coming into the NHL in 2007, Andrew has played 459  games.  Yes, that’s every single game – 459 […]

Una Noche

One night of the 2013 NHL Playoffs is in the books.  Everybody still with us? Blackhawks vs. Wild The Hawks didn’t play their best, but they squeaked one out vs. the Wild.  As the regular clock wound down and overtime became imminent, we all did this: Every damned time.  In last year’s first round, 5 […]

Because it’s the Cup

Recently, Jess and I were quoting Sam from Love Actually and his brilliant, unintended summation of the NHL playoffs: Worse than the total agony of being in love? We’re almost there again.  The gut-wrenching, screaming-into-a-pillow, obsecenity-laden euphoria and destruction of the post-season. In past years, the NHL has come up with some great commercials to capture […]

Foxy Friday: Viktor Fasth

This week, we honor Viktor Fasth, goaltender for the Anaheim Ducks. Fasth has burst onto the NHL scene in this shortened as the back-up to Jonas Hiller in Anaheim.  Initially, Fasth wasn’t expected to play much but instead has dominated in a most unexpected way. The Ducks are on a winning streak and the rookie […]

Foxy Friday: Teemu Selanne

We should be ashamed of ourselves. How is it that in the almost two years that we’ve been doing this feature, that we haven’t yet honored one of the foxiest hockey players of all time? Shame on us! Well, we redeem ourselves today by honoring the one…the only…the future NHL Hall of Famer….the Finnish Flash […]

Two for the Road

We don’t watch as much Western Conference hockey as we’d like – it’s past our bedtimes.  For those who do, and whose teams ended their 2011-2012 seasons last night, this one’s for you. The Dallas Stars finished in 9th place last year too.  Frustrated but the hopeful.  The ultimate hockey fan emotions. Flames fans are […]

Around The League In Milestone Minutes

 It was a banner weekend ladies as many of our men made history and milestones: chillin in the dome with Jerome: Iggy got his 500th goal.  Teemu got his 651st goal by the end of the night.  Little Danny Briere put on his big boy pants and got in his third ever fight and had […]

Foxy Friday: Bobby Ryan

New Jersey’s own Bobby “Silver” Ryan is a gem.  He could be Foxy Friday based solely on his Tweets or on this photo alone.  But no, Bobby has both. We never stood a chance. There were 1.2 billion trade rumors about Bobby earlier this season, but he is staying put in Anaheim.  This team has a […]

New Coach, New Girlfriend, New Attitude?

So Ovi has a new coach, a new girlfriend so let’s hope that leads to a new attitude! Right? Well if the first game was any indication, I might jump ship – WHAT?! Just kiddding. That sound you just heard was Pants and Chuck simulatenously dropping over. I’m  so excited for the battle of the hotties […]

My life. So hard.

Things I Love:  America.  Twitter.  Hockey. And whoever made this .gif on Tumblr:

The Finnish Flash Drops The Gloves During Final Freeway Face-Off!

Last night’s game against the Kings wasn’t exciting for me since they lost and looked lost on the ice especially when Captain DT. Brown went out for a bit with a sore ouchie. (not minimizing his pain, just borrowing BB’s explanation for hockey player’s injuries) The only bright spot was an interview with Kopitar from the sidelines with Heidi […]

Another Great 8 Gets a 3-fer.

Old men getting it done! Teemu Selanne pulls a hat trick out of his ass to put the Ducks past Colorado tonight. There must be something about that number. I secretly have a crush on the old man and it’s not because he wears #8 too like TBG and Ovi. OK, maybe because he does. No, not really. He […]
