This week’s hockey hilarity is about something that happened a little over a week ago. During the pre-game warm up for game three of the Stanley Cup Final, Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara fell and took out Milan Lucic. It was pretty dangerous and hilarious, but mostly for a different reason, here’s the video: Last year, Edmonton Oilers forward Taylor Hall fell after stepping on a puck in warm ups: And well: People getting seriously injured is rarely, what I would call, funny, but in this case, Taylor Hall made it so by responding to a tweet sent out by …

Hockey Hilarity: Oliver Lauridsen, from Anton Khudobin and Zdeno Chara?

  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!

Flyers Give Second Strong Effort in a Row, Win 5-2 over Boston

With a little help from an unexpected source, the Philadelphia Flyers won 5-2 over the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night, their second strong effort in a row — despite being out of playoff contention. Oliver Lauridsen scored his first NHL goal 11:31 into the second period, with some help from Boston’s Zdeno Chara. Lauridsen dumped the puck into the Bruins’ end, where Chara attempted to throw it back around the boards.
