Since the Toronto Maple Leafs have played their last game, the Toronto Blue Jays stockpiled top talent in their offseason, the Toronto Argonauts won the Grey Cup, the Toronto Raptors had a winning tear without their former first overall pick, and Toronto FC fired a bunch of people. Fortunately, 2012 was still a big year…
Kovalchuk vs. Chara, Malkin’s Magnitogorsk kills it, Ovechkin and Radulov go RRRAAAAWWWWRRRR! and more. Enjoy!
We’re now in the thick of the holiday season and there’s no NHL hockey, but there’s still lots to talk about. The league made a new CBA offer this week, the World Juniors and Spengler Cup are on, and the Toronto Maple Leafs continue to butcher the handling of their top young players.
Look at that intensity. LOOK AT IT! Seriously though, if you watch these videos you’ll see a good fight, some sick goals, including one disgusting spinorama worthy of being considered for goal of the year. Enjoy!
KHL: Chara’s Lev takes down Ovechkin’s Dynamo, Bobrovsky & Ramo earn shutouts, Magnitogorsk dominates
Hey, so the NHL made the NHLPA a 300-page offer. Exciting stuff. While all the lawyers read over that exciting stuff, allow me to offer you today’s KHL highlights.
Not sure who could have predicted that the Canadian world junior team would be losing 3-1 to Team Slovakia in the second period, but this wicked slapshot from Maple Leafs’ draft pick Morgan Rielly on a 5-on-3 potentially changed the outcome of the game.
Not gonna lie to you – not a lot of huge names in these games. There. I was straight up. But there are some great highlights, including one goal I’d put in the conversation for goal of the year in the Ak Bars vs. Neftekhimik game. Enjoy!
Mikhail Grabovski scores a nice OT-winner, some wicked saves between Dynamo Moscow and Slovan, and more! If you have to watch just ONE game, watch SKA-Red Army. Great game. Enjoy!
After Jake Gardiner was run at by Kevin Porter back on December 8th, he stepped right back out on the ice for the powerplay and scored, before being held out of the third period of the same game. He has not played since, with the Toronto Marlies waffling between whether it was “concussion symptoms” “a…
While it’s probably prudent to curb ones enthusiasm, given Team Canada’s opening game at the World Junior Championship in Russia amounted to little more than a controlled scrimmage against an overmatched opponent, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins gave fans plenty to cheer about in a 9-3 waltz over Germany today.
May all the Nations Network writers have a very merry Christmas today and tomorrow. Unless you’re a grinch or something, then may you have a miserable humbug and successfully ruin everyone else’s good time (looking at you, Bettman).
T’is the season to watch wicked goals and not people talk about decertification. Enjoy! We’ll be back on Boxing Day. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
