Goal of the year contender

 

Washington Capitals forward Mathieu Perreault came to the painful conclusion that redirecting a shot with your face still counts as a goal.

A publicity stunt like we like them

Let’s be honest, they brew crappy beer, but the folks at Budweiser know how to throw a marketing stunt. This time they surprise amateur hockey players and give them the time of their lives.

Give it up for my homie

My longtime buddy Phil Jacques is gonna take part in the Street Snowboarding event at this weekend’s Winter X Games in Aspen, CO and I felt like shouting it out.

Here’s a clip from Phil’s part in CAPITA’s recent feature Defenders Of Awesome.

Philosopher Goalie

Last night marked the return of the acclaimed television series 24/7 Road to the Winter Classic on HBO. This year’s edition follows the Philadelphia Flyers and the New-York Rangers. In this clip, Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov freaks out about the size of the universe.

It’s GOT to be alive.

 

Oh Snap

The commentator pretty much sums up my thoughts at 0:28.

A KHL goalie is caught off-guard and lets in a pret-ty ugly one.

Medical update on Daniel “Pies” Paille

That’s pretty much how you look after taking a 90mph puck to the face

Right in the kisser

Last night Daniel Paille of the Boston Bruins took a slapshot to the face during a game against the New-York Islanders. For those of you who are not familiar with hockey, a hockey puck is made of vulcanized rubber and is kept in a freezer prior to being dropped on the ice, which makes it pretty damn hard. Shots from the point, like the one from Steve Staios that hit Paille, usually fly around 95mph.

The visor, this little piece of plastic Daniel Paille wears on his helmet as protection may just have saved his life. His injury reminds us of some other players who recently took a beating trying to block shots, like Ian Laperriere, Steven Stamkos and James Wisniewski

UPDATE:

“Daniel Paille has been diagnosed with a broken nose and facial lacerations after the injury he sustained in our game Monday night. He will undergo surgery on Wednesday, November 9 at Mass General Hospital in Boston to repair the injury. Dr. Thomas Dodson will conduct the procedure. Following the surgery, he is expected to be listed as day-to-day.”
