Hockey Hilarity: Dwight King’s Big Break

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players, media personnel, and broadcast botches. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! Last night the Los Angeles Kings beat the Phoenix Coyotes by a score of 7-4, which, incidentally, is a difference of three goals, which a certain King, named Dwight King, also incidentally, scored exactly that amount during the game (worst sentence ever, I know… Please bear with me, I’m ill). One of my favorite Tweeters and hockey people writer guys, Dave Lozo (you can follow him here: @DaveLozo) pointed out that …

Flight Plan: What Do We Do When We Fall Off The Horse…

The Philadelphia Flyers fired coach Peter Laviolette after a loss last Sunday to the Carolina Hurricanes. They promoted Craig Berube to head coach. Since then, they are 1-2-0, as they beat the Florida Panthers on Tuesday, but lost to the Phoenix Coyotes and the Detroit Red Wings, and have scored just five goals in that span. Berube wants to institute a more defensively conscious system, with emphasis on positional play, puck support, all while playing an uptempo, skating heavy game. So far under Berube, the team has had a bit more jump than they showed in the first three games …

Hockey Hilarity: That was Quick… And Easy

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players, media personnel, and broadcast botches. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! I think all of us can agree that Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings is a pretty good goaltender, maybe even one of the best ever when he’s on like he was in the 2011-2012 season where he won both the Conn Smythe award as the most valuable player to his team in the playoffs and a Stanley Cup. However, the guy is human. (really, I promise he is). …

Flight Plan: Getting Back Into the Swing of Things

­­ Through two games, the Philadelphia Flyers are looking like a good team, but have lacked finish as they’ve been outscored 7-2 thus far in the 2013-2014 season. Luckily, there are 80 more games left as opposed to last year where there would only be 46 games  remaining at this point, and there are some bright spots. The scoring lead for the team is currently a three-way tie between Vincent Lecavalier, Mark Streit, and Brayden Schenn. Schenn and Lecavalier clearly have some chemistry on the second power play unit and have each scored a goal and notched a helper on …
