Columbus Fans Are NHL’s Most Tormented

Washington. So close yet so far.

Again.

The Presidents Trophy winners were eliminated from the 2016 Stanley Cup playoffs by Pittsburgh on Tuesday night.

Again.

The Penguins have now eliminated the Capitals from the post season eight times in their 41-year history, going on to win the Stanley Cup in three of those years just to pour a little extra salt on the wound.

Caps fans could be forgiven for feeling like they are cursed this morning. Ralph Russo of the Associated Press even went as far as suggesting they were the most ‘tormented’ fan base in the NHL.

Despite another heart breaking loss on Tuesday, they are not.

That ‘honour’ belongs to Columbus.

We’re on the road again this week, which I’ll claim is a tribute to the Predators game seven road win in Anaheim…

Last few months he has been one of the if not most talked about Russian athletes.  Following endless statements from him and his agent and his team that he was supposed to leave according to himself  has (once again) made a decision.

SKA-CSKA Battle Goes Beyond the Ice

CSKA and SKA, two teams that just finished one of the KHL conference finals have so much in common,  one of them is the ongoing ‘’war’’.  Both teams couldn’t keep the battle on the ice so they went to bite each other’s necks off in quite a passion.

What necks are we talking about here?  Well, there is an ongoing war between both teams on which one can get the best rumors out about each other.  Sadly it does involved money and Russian media. Some of the stories have been pretty down on the earth but the one that raised many eyebrows and made the ground move a little,was about none else than Russian predator Alexander Radulov, who apparently was heading to Toronto to play for Maple Leafs.
