What a shame

The Red Wings have been shut out in back to back games for the first time since 2001 and the first time at home since 1977...GOOD!!!

Today in Hockey History

November 22nd in Hockey History

1917 - The National Hockey League came into being. Its official formation was in Montreal, Canada.

1999 - ‘The Great One’, Wayne Gretzky, was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. On June 23, 1999 it had been announced that Gretzky would be the tenth, and last, player to have the three-year waiting period waived by the hall-of-fame selection committee “by reason of outstanding pre-eminence and skill.” Gretzky held 61 NHL records.

Louisana Ice Gators Coach loses his mind

You read that right, Brent Sapergia is the GM and interim headcoach of the Louisana IceGators of the ECHL...and guess who he replaced? Ron Handy! Wow, talk about a who's who of old minor league talent.
The November 6th game against Pensacola, Sapergia lost him mind over a call and was suspended.
He has hired John Gibson as head coach. Nice to see the GM losing his cool and getting suspended from coaching indefinately.
