Toronto Maple Leafs @ Boston Bruins

 

Toronto Maple Leafs

The Leafs have 9 wins and 2 losses in the month of February, and one of them were when they met the Boston Bruins, on February 3rd. The Buds weren’t ready to work that night and lost countless battles along the boards. Boston speed forced Toronto to turn the puck over in the neutral zone countless times, giving the Bruins a bunch of great odd man rushes. The Maple Leafs will be ready this time for the ‘’ new’’ Bruins, the ones that do not lose. It will be interesting to see if Auston Matthews will be available. He is scheduled for a MRI on his injured shoulder. He left Thursday’s g...


Russians Win Gold And Silver In Skating, Nagasu Excuses Performance And Hopes For DWTS

Friday, February 23, 2018

OLYMPICS

The Russians, skating under the name O.A.R, (Olympic Athletes from Russia) finally won a gold medal in Pyeongchang with 15-year-old Alina Zagitova edging out her 18-year-old teammate Evgenia Medvedeva in the figure skating competition. Zagitova is the second youngest figure skater to win gold (Tara Lipinski was the youngest by 28 days).

 

The United States traditionally has dominated ice skating, but this year, was a disappointment. The highest an American scored was for ninth place (the worst showing since World War II). One of the highly touted skaters, Mirai Nagasu, received attention and accolades after she landed the first-ever triple axel by a US woman at the Olympics,&nb...

Hockey player gets skate to the face, plays anyway

Ah, hockey.  Where free dental work and a kick to the face with a razor-sharp blade is just another Tuesday at the office. 

In a game between Sweden and Norway at the 2018 Olympic Games, Kristian Forsberg, a 31-year-old Norwegian veteran, got a slight gash to the cheek, courtesy of a falling Joel Lundqvist .

Forsberg’s visor caught most of the skate, but left him with a sliced face and a gushing nose full of blood. Lundqvist got a high-sticking penalty after the incident, and Forsberg, who was escorted off the ice as a result of his injury, also earned a cross-checking penalty.

U.S. Halpipers Wise And Ferreira Win Gold/Silver, Team USA Beats Team Canada In Shootout, Tinder Spike In Village

Thursday, February 22, 2018

OLYMPICS

The United States dominated in the men's halfpipe with David Wise bringing in the gold and Alex Ferreira taking home the silver. Ferreira and Wise formed a strong bond during the Olympic training and even got matching tattoos of the PyeongChang logo. Wise's long hair has been a story throughout the Olympics, and now that he's won gold, he says he'll donate his locks to a cancer charity.

The United States and Canada's women's hockey have an intense rivalry over the years, with Canada dominating the medal stand by winning gold the past four Olympic games. Thursday night both teams played their heart out, but the U.S. pulled out the win in a dramatic 3-2 shootout. Many fans believe the shootout is an unfair way to determine a game of this imp...

NCAA Sends Louisville Message About Behavior, Vonn Earns Bronze Medal

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

BASKETBALL

Rick Pitino has been long gone as the head coach of the Louisville basketball team, but he will be forever remembered as shaming the institution while at the helm, especially now that the NCAA refused to appeal their decision to rescind their 2013 championship and 2012 Final Four appearance. Former director of basketball operations, Andre McGee, was the ringleader of many of the violations including rampant sex parties with prostitutes for the underage recruits. By pulling the team’s championship banner from the raftors of the basketball arena, the NCAA is sending a strong message they won’t tolerate this type of behavior from institutions.

Lindsay Vonn finished her ski career with a bronze...
