Weird: Roman Polak scores on Jaroslav Halak

Here’s a weird sight to see. Roman Polak, now with the Toronto Maple Leafs, scored a goal in his team’s game against the New York Islanders. The opposing goaltender? None other than Jaroslav Halak.


Vladimir Tarasenko heeding advice, shooting more often

Heading into 2014-15, Vladimir Tarasenko was instructed to fire the puck more. This advice was obvious coming off of a 2013-14 which saw Tarasenko score 21 goals during the regular season and another four during the playoffs.

As seen on […]


Blues put Peter Mueller on waivers to terminate his contract
