Canadiens Pre-Game Video Sets the Ice on FIRE

Canadiens Pre-Game Video Sets the Ice on FIRE

It’s hockey playoffs time, people. It gets no better. And it gets no bigger. ESPECIALLY in Montreal. The most storied franchise in hockey with absolutely rabid fans. When passion is at a fever pitch, how do you manage to continually crank it up even more? Your in-game producers at the Bell Centre for game three […]

Nashville Predators release awesome American highlight video

Nashville Predators release awesome American highlight video

I’ll admit it. If you asked me to name the hockey team from Nashville, it would take me a few beats to rattle off Predators. I’d get it. It just would take a moment. Doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the game. It’s nothing against the Nashville Predators. Certainly not a slight towards the franchise’s American-born […]

CBC's Brilliant Wrap to Stanley Cup Playoffs (VIDEO)

CBC’s Brilliant Wrap to Stanley Cup Playoffs (VIDEO)

Man those Canadians sure know how to capture this whole sport of hockey, eh? Thanks to a link from Deadspin, I recently had the pleasure of watching the CBC’s Hockey Night in America video recap of these fantastic 2013 NHL Playoffs. Suffice to say, it is top-notch stuff. I’m a sucker for a well-produced sports […]

Because it’s the Cup

It’s not because a partner agency created them. The Stanley Cup ads of recent memory are simply awesome. Why? Because they try to do nothing they shouldn’t. They treat the greatest trophy in sports with the historical respect and import it deserves. Spots often incorporate real highlights because fancy production and effects are absolutely necessary. […]

Bruins hockey returns to Boston, bringing powerful moments

Bruins hockey returns to Boston, bringing powerful moments

I’m a huge sports fan, so I guess it’s not surprising that when tragedies are placed in the context of sporting events the emotion seems to hit hard. Case in point, last night’s Bruins-Sabres games. It’s often said that in the wake of inexplicably cruel events, the best is brought out in us. That coming […]

Remembering epic Winter Classic finishes, as the 2013 edition is now...finished

Remembering epic Winter Classic finishes, as the 2013 edition is now…finished

The 2013 NHL Winter Classic has officially been cancelled. This comes as no surprise to anyone who’s followed the proceedings between the owners and NHLPA over the past weeks and months. Chances are, the entire season’s formal death notice is not far behind. The biggest waste is, of course, the loss of an entire season. […]

Buffalo Sabres prospects train with Navy SEALs

Buffalo Sabres prospects train with Navy SEALs

Navy SEALs earn their stripes through brutal training that typically stretches over 30 months. The Buffalo Sabres are putting prospects attending their summer development camp through just over a week’s worth of training with members of the elite SEAL fraternity. The sessions have commenced bright and early at 4:30 a.m. each morning on Woodlawn Beach […]

Devils fan's cube gets royal treatment in LA Kings makeover

Devils fan’s cube gets royal treatment in LA Kings makeover

Since I’ve been on both sides of the “cube makeover” situation, I can appreciate this stellar job. Some Kings fan have a good time “re-designing” the cubicle of their Devils fan co-worker following the Kings win over NJ in the Stanley Cup Finals. It will surely be an appreciated welcome back for our friend. An […]

Matteau! Matteau! Matteau!

Matteau! Matteau! Matteau!

Rangers fans aren’t getting ahead of themselves. Still, it’s almost impossible (at least for this Blueshirts backer) not to see a conference finals between the Rangers and Devils and immediately think back to 1994. Back then, the echoes of “1940!” still hung in the air with far too much familiarity. A chance to fight for […]

10 reasons the NHL Playoffs are phenomenal

10 reasons the NHL Playoffs are phenomenal

Playoff. Hockey. Two words that go so well together. As a more casual puckhead, I am one of those who tends to come out of hibernation about the same time the iceman begin to cultivate their postseason facial hair companions. Sue me. You may not be able to convince me that Saturday regular season matinees […]

Lord Stanley’s Cup: “No Words” Spot Near Top of Sports List

NHL Playoff hockey is simply wonderful stuff. Although we’re still a good deal away, we couldn’t help but post this commercial promoting the 2010 NHL Playoffs. In the spirit of full disclosure, I’ve had the privilege of working with some of the folks who created this spot of late, so I was hence reminded. One […]
