Dallas Stars remind you Justin Bieber is a Maple Leafs fan

Justin Bieber Maple Leafs

The Dallas Stars added insult to victory during Thursday’s win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Not only did they pound Toronto 7-1, but they also dumped on the Leafs while up 3-1 in the second period by flashing a picture of Justin Bieber on the jumbotron and reminding everyone that the Canadian singer is a Leafs fan.

That’s how bad things are for Biebs now. People are using him as an insult. Ouch.

Drunk goalie video? Drunk goalie video.

Drunk-goalieA goalie from an amateur hockey league in the Czech Republic appeared to take the term “beer league” way too literally before a recent game. According to the person who posted these videos on Reddit, the goaltender was drunk while playing. We can’t confirm that, but we can confirm that he had something seriously wrong with him and did not belong in net.

Amazingly enough, the goalie was able to make a save at one point. In fact, the Reddit user even claimed his team ended up winning the game. We find that almost impossible to believe.

Dongshot: Naked Penguins player appears in postgame interview (Video)

A Tanner Glass postgame interview Saturday night on Root Sports was videbombed by … well, a dongshot.

The Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Calgary Flames 2-1 on Saturday, and Glass had an assist in the game. He was interviewed after the contest, but the interviewer chose a poor location nearby what looked like the training room. As Kris Letang opened up the training door while holding a slice of pizza, a naked Penguins player appeared in the background.

Either that was a well-placed hand from the naked Penguins player — who our friend DJ Gallo says is Brandon Sutter — or we have another Visante Shiancoe on our hands.

Flyers fan gets an ‘F Crosby’ license plate


Most Philadelphia Flyers fans hate the Pittsburgh Penguins. More specifically, they despise their in-state rival’s best player, Sidney Crosby. We have found someone who may hate Sid the Kid just a little more than everyone else.

A Flyers fan who goes by Archibald Meatpants on Twitter recently got a vanity license plate that reads “F Crosby.” The DMV usually tries to filter out all profane and inappropriate license plates, but for all they know this one could belong to a guy with the last name Crosby and a first name that begins with the letter “F.” Too bad they didn’t do their research on Twitter.

We have seen some ironic things written on license plates in the past, but those were pure coincidence. This guy managed to slip one through the cracks at the RMV, which is always worthy of a high-five. He deserves to drive around town with “F Crosby” plastered on his bumper.

Patrick Roy’s son Frederick has major meltdown (Video)

Frederick Roy meltdownOooooh boy, the apple does not fall far from the tree in the Roy family.

Patrick Roy’s son, Frederick, had a major meltdown in his first game at the Spengler Cup on Thursday. Playing for the Rochester Americans of the AHL, Roy was ejected for trying to start a fight with Cody Almond of Swiss club Geneva-Servette. There is no fighting allowed in the Spengler Cup, so Roy was tossed.

Roy yelled some stuff at his opponent’s bench and pointed his finger at them before clearing out. Then he started screaming as he was storming through the tunnel to the locker rooms, knocked down some sticks, and cursed out a cameraman for filming his meltdown. You can watch the video below, but it has some NSFW language:

In 22 games this season, Roy has three goals and 83 penalty minutes for the Americans, which are an affiliate of the Buffalo Sabres.

Roy sent this apology tweet in French:

This is just a taste of the Roy family’s behavior. Another son, Jonathan, was suspended 15 games for his 2008 on-ice assault of an opposing goalie in a QMJHL game:

Coyotes G Mike Smith gets puck stuck in pants, carries it into net for OT winner (Video)

Mike-Smith-puck-in-pantsTough breaks sometime result in losses, but the Phoenix Coyotes fell victim to a bad break on Monday night that may not be topped this season. The Buffalo Sabres beat Phoenix in overtime when Coyotes goalie Mike Smith let up an own goal — if you can even call it that.

Smith came out of the net for a poke check and managed to pop the puck into the air. When it came down, the puck ended up in the back of his pants. Naturally, Smith had no idea the puck was in his pants and he retreated to cover the net. His backside crossed the goal line in the process and the Sabres picked up the win.

Smith, who likes to get a rise out of people judging by this mullett, had a hilarious sense of humor about the play after the game.

The Butt Goal is one Smith and everyone else who was involved will never forget.

Claude Giroux scores 100th career goal with impossible backhanded shot (Video)

Claude-Giroux-100th-goalPhiladelphia Flyers center Claude Giroux is one of the best offensive players in the NHL. He reminded us of that on Thursday night when he scored the 100th goal of his career in incredible fashion.

Giroux’s 100th goal came with 1:38 remaining in the game and proved to be the game-winner over the Columbus Blue Jackets. All of that would be impressive enough, but the goal also was easily one of the best you will ever see. Giroux was falling down after being shoved in the back, yet he somehow managed to backhand the puck and lift it over the glove of Blue Jackets goalie Curtis McElhinney.

The fact that Giroux was even able to get a shot off from such an impossible angle was amazing. What a fitting way to reach the 100th goal milestone.
