At just about midnight in the east, Patrick Kane took a pass on a 2-on-1 rush from Jonathan Towes in the 2nd overtime and buried a one timer past Jonathan Quick to send the Chicago Blackhawks back to the Stanley Cup finals.
After the Los Angeles Kings’ Mike Richards tied the game up with ten seconds left in the third period, the two teams exchanged a few scoring chances in the first OT, but none found the back of the net.
In the 2nd OT, the play started to get a bit sloppy and each team had a few odd man rushes. But at 11:40 of the 2nd OT, Patrick Kane completed the hat trick, and propelled the Blackhawks to the Stanley Cup Finals with THIS GOAL…. Read the rest of this entry »
#1 Pittsburgh Penguins vs #7 Ottawa Senators
The Penguins did what they were supposed to do on home ice. Sidney Crosby scored a hat trick in game two to give the Pens a 2-0 lead in the series. The flightless birds were about to take a commanding 3-0 series lead on the Sens when THIS HAPPENED!!!… Read the rest of this entry »
I have never become so disgusted over a Mets team in my twenty-three years or so that I’ve been legitimately following them. First of all, the clown featured in the photo above needs to go ASAP. The team clearly doesn’t give a shit about anything he has to say and he has no clue how to run a baseball team, never has. He brought some positive vibes here in 2011 and temporarily changed the culture of the clubhouse but he’s done now. I don’t care who they replace him with because this season is fucked anyway.

I don’t have a mullet, but I do have all of my teeth. For these reasons I am not your average hockey fan, and by not your average hockey fan I mean I don’t watch the NHL. I have more fingers on my hands than the amount of active professional hockey players I can name. I was watching ESPN today and found out the Kings won the Stanley Cup last year. Sweet. Way to go LA (they play in LA, right?).
We have several avid hockey fans that blog for us here at TSB, I’m just not one of them. I’m here to tell you who would win the Stanley Cup if team mascots were to fight each other in a 7 game series. Let’s do this. Read the rest of this entry »
Thursday night the #3 seed in the East, the Washington Capitals, take on the #6 seed New York Rangers. To get a Caps point of view on this series, we spoke with Kevin Klein (@sickunbelievabl) from JapersRink.com.
1. It doesn’t seem like if would be the Stanley Cup Playoffs unless the Washington Capitals and New York Rangers met in the playoffs. It’s the 4th time in 5 years. Does that help or hurt the Caps chances of getting out of the 1st round? Read the rest of this entry »
Thursday night the #6 seeded New York Rangers head to the nation’s capital to take on the #3 seeded Washington Capitals.

1. The New York Rangers were picked by many to finish near the top of the Eastern Conference standings this year. Why did they struggle and need a good April to make the playoffs? Read the rest of this entry »

1. The Penguins are the team in the Eastern Conference that none of the bottom 3 seeds wanted to face. Between the Isles, Rangers, and Senators, where do the Islanders fall in that group that you wanted to face? Read the rest of this entry »

Now that the NHL and NHLPA have resolved their issues in the meeting rooms. We can get back to business on the ice. The NHL season is going to be fast and furious and will be over before you know it. No teams can have an extended losing streak if they want to make the playoffs. A 4-5 game losing streak could really put a strain on their seasons. Here are the preseason predictions of what the NHL season will end up like at the end of April going into the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Earl tackles the East, while Mike takes on the West.

The NHL is back, and so are the Ice Girls!

At 4:40 am on Sunday, the NHL and it’s players agreed to a new CBA that will keep the NHL skating for the next 8-10 years without a work stoppage.
They are still hammering out all the little details as we speak. You know, like a schedule, number of games, how the Devils can front load a contract. Actually they can’t, that was a big part of the negotiations.
So in anticipation of the NHL starting up in about 2-3 weeks, what better way to kick off the excitement than with some of the NHL’s hottest “Ice Girls”? Not every team will be represented here, due to the fact that not every team employs smokin’ hot chicks to clean up the snow buildup around the benches and net. Some teams just enjoy looking at 50-year-old dudes with beer belly’s, rockin’ the 1987 sateen jacket that is 3 sizes to small. Read the rest of this entry »

Wednesday afternoon, the die-hard fan base of the New York Islanders got the news that will forever change the franchise. The Isles are staying on Long Island…kinda. Technically speaking, the New York City borough of Brooklyn is located on the island of Long Island, with Nassau County bordering it to the east and Queens County to the north. But to many Islanders fans, the move is one thousand times better than a move to say, Kansas City or Quebec. Read the rest of this entry »
