In Charlottesville, Virginia, on Friday night, a collection of white supremacists and nationalists and Nazi cos-players and frightened man-babies marched on McIntire Park, taking issue with the city’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen.

The Pittsburgh Penguins’ 6-0 rout of the Nashville Predators was as ugly on the ice as it was the scoreboard, with 100 penalty minutes shared between the two teams.

Hockey fans are usually like a mood ring. The Nashville Predators fans inside and outside of Bridgestone Arena for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final, however, were something different.

It would be easy to give the entire group of defensemen a failing grade for the Stars in 2016-17. Dallas finished 29th in goals against at 3.17 per game, and struggled to get its transition game going. But was that the fault of the young defensemen, or the fact the team lost puck-movers Alex Goligoski, […]

With no Canadian teams in the playoffs, some of the attention will shift to players who used to play up north and were moved for a variety of reasons. A few of those players will get to show their former teams what they missed – or prove that trading them was the right call. Related: […]
If you’re a diehard puckhead, you’re likely struggling with the start of Major League Baseball season.
