Bauer TotalOne Skates… Awesome!!

:: Tags: General, Hockey, Video

This is a video clip showing the new TotalOne hockey skates from Bauer in slow motion. The players are pro’s and the skates at the same level. I just picked up a set of TotalOne 100’s which are a level down from the pro skates, but perform just as nicely!

The Best Hands In Hockey…?

:: Tags: Hockey, Video

Being such a huge hockey fan and enthusiast I just couldn’t help but post these two videos. The first one shows Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wings playing a one-on-one game of keep away with one of the reporters from FSN in Detroit. This guy is pretty good, but he’s no match for Pavel! The second video feathers a former Detroit Red Wing, Alex Kovalev, as he skates circles around three other players and never gives up the puck… not even once! Nice stick handling skills…!!

This season one of my hockey teams, The Ballston Tropics, finished with an outstanding record of 13-1-2 to put us in the top seed in our division. With only the playoffs left to go, were looking forward to a possible first for our relatively new teams history… that’s right, a championship! Here’s a few photos from the final regular season game against Team Navy. Go Tropics…!!!

WOW… what a game!

:: Tags: Hockey, Sports

In case you didn’t see it last night (as I didn’t… being that I was playing in my own hockey game) the Detroit Red Wings beat the Chicago Blackhawks in overtime to move on to the Stanley Cup Finals. Now just for the record, I’ve always been and always will be a huge Caps fan, but since they’re no longer in the running for the Cup I’ll pull for any team that’s playing against the Penguins!! It’s like the Redskins and Cowboys rivalry… you root for the Skins first and then any other team that’s kicking the crap out of the Cowboys!! God I love ice hockey… what a great sport!!!

Here’s the link to the game highlights from last night… truly, it was all about the goaltenders!!
