Hockey Hilarity: Ott-er Disaster

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! As hockey fans, one of the coolest parts of the game is the sweater. Hockey jerseys are just so cool. The only cooler piece of equipment is the goalie mask, but I digress… The subject of this week’s hockey hilarity is the massive misstep made by a franchise with a pretty rad logo.

Hockey Hilarity: Hockey Video Game Fans Are Dedicated Too

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! Okay, so this has nothing really to do with the real game of hockey, but the virtual one counts, right? The NHL ’14 demo was released this week and it’s pretty cool. On a related note: I was perusing Twitter and came across this retweet by none other than Sean Ramjagsingh, “Producer – EA Sports NHL series and tweeter of random things not related to my job!” (well that’s according …

Uni Watch: Flyers Have 5th Best Duds in the NHL

The nifty ESPN blog Uni Watch has been putting out power rankings for the four major sports all week, and today was NHL day. The Flyers came in 5th for the best unis in the league, according to Paul Lukas, noting that they have the best look of any non-original 6 team. I myself am a big fan of the Flyers’ current look and am really glad they went back to a classic style. And while I wasn’t a big fan of the color contrasting nameplates at first, they’ve really grown on me and I love them now. Let us …
