I found this on Tumblr. If any of you are hockey fans, you know about Darryl Sutter, coach of the LA Kings. He has a penchant for unintentionally funny press conferences and is well-known for his demeanour. Check this out for a good chuckle.
Boston Bruin fans will appreciate this one. Well worth the fine.
Adrian Alverstein likes winning. Victory dance performed after a league game in Norway. Question: Will this catch on in North America? Two minutes for excessive celebration?
Waldorf of The Muppets is obviously a Winnipeg Jets fan, showing up at their recent home game against the San Jose Sharks. No word on where Statler was, but I assume he was there, likely getting beers for them.
In a continuing series on the trials and tribulations of Canucks goalie, Roberto Luongo, we have one of the strangest goals in recent memory. Former Boston Bruin (our hero’s nemesis team), and current San José Shark (our hero’s most recent nemesis) Joe Thornton shoots one into the Canuck’s zone and the rest is history.
Is this guy snake-bit or what.
I was watching (as Canadians do) an NHL game from Chicago between the Blackhawks and the Winnipeg Jets. During the game, something happened that I had never seen before. No, not the hit, or the glass popping out or the beer being thrown at the opposition player. Believe it or not, a fairly inebriated fan reached in and ripped the helmet off Adam Pardy‘s head (I’ve also seen fans grab equipment before) and, this is the crazy part, put the helmet on. As the announcer says, if you’re going to steal something, don’t wear it. A classic NHL moment that will play on sport shows for years.
A lot of you don’t know hockey, but we Canadians do. Over the past few years there has been a lot of talk about Vancouver Canucks goalie, Roberto Luongo. Personally (even though I love to tweak my my Canuck fan friends about him), I think he is a marvellous, highly skilled goaltender, one that has led Canada to Olympic gold, and will again this winter. Having said that, he appears to be completely snake bit. To set this up, Hockey Night in Canada (61 seasons on CBC TV) to a nation wide audience, playing the Montreal Canadiens. Montreal is short-handed as they have a penalty. they move the puck into Vancouver’s zone and the entire group head for the bench for a change, then……
As I understand, the rest of the world does not celebrate ice hockey as we Canadians do, so I figured a quick primer for the rest of the world would be required. This primer is specifically geared to the teams that made the playoffs and focuses on the Canadian based teams that qualified. Vancouver fans may not like this very much so avert our eyes and move on. Please ask your questions in the comments and I will do my best to enlighten you.
At some point last week, a milestone of 25,000 views was reached right here on Is It Possible To See It All. It came with some luck as I actually caught (I think) the 25,000th visitor. So besides thanking the other 24,999 visits, I thank my Saskatchewan buddy Traci Kay for being that visitor. She writes a great blog called Hockey Mommy Confessions. She shares my love for hockey and all things Canadian, and, very important, shares my dislike for the Vancouver Canucks.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, the Los Angeles Kings and New Jersey Devils will meet in the Stanley Cup Final, beginning on Wednesday night. Both teams won the Western and Eastern Conference titles respectively in overtime.
The Los Angeles Kings won the Clarence Campbell Bowl for their efforts. The New Jersey Devils captured the Prince Of Wales trophy for their accomplishment. Both teams carried the tradition of NOT touching the trophy afterwards. The reason given is that they are not playing for those trophies. The only one that matters is the Stanley Cup and that touching the other trophies is considered bad luck. What a bunch of horse manure!
For the record, here’s where this “tradition” started. Back in 1996, the Florida Panthers shocked the hockey world, by upsetting Mario Lemieux and the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference Final. The Panthers celebrated by hoisting the Prince…
