This is what happens when you're the Canucks and you put a halt on the Florida Panthers 12-game winning streak. On and off the ice Floridians are bound to stir some sh*t up.

At least we have here a miraculous, spontaneous display of Panthers broadcaster Dennis Potvin throwing out a straight up elementary schoolyard-caliber burn at the Sedin twins.

Ah, you're Putin me on with this one.

For his Oct. 7 birthday, the President of the Russian Federation strapped on his skates and took to the ice like a tyrannical zamboni. Vladamir Putin played against NHL stars in Socci and scored a whopping seven goals, leading his team to a 15-10 victory.

So impressive.

Mashable has more details:

The event kicked off the fifth season of Russia's Night Hockey League, and saw Putin playing alongside international hockey legends like Pavel Bure and Vladimir Lutchenko. His team took home victory, beating their opponents 15 to 10.

The opposing team included Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu as well as Putin's close friends — tycoons Gennady Timchenko and Arkady Rotenberg. Both were slapped with Western sanctions last year for their ties to Putin in the wake of Russia's annexation of Crimea.

But Putin was undoubtedly the star of the show, and event went home with a trophy for his team's win at the end and a medal for his contribution to hockey in Russia.



There's no reason at all to question Putin's ability to score seven goals playing against hockey legends.

He's just that good.



This isn't the first time, he's shown such amazing prowess in three periods of play. Just last May, Putin bested his birthday score, by putting eight pucks into the net.

Truly the world of hockey is missing out on a player that would eclipse the great Gretzky.



Here's the highlight reel from Wednesday's game.

Ray Kaunisto of the Kalamazoo Wings had some fun in a recent post-game interview, slipping in a little reference to the 2001 comedy "Super Troopers."

He managed to get about 7 "meows" in his answers before the interview ended.

Maybe he's just excited for the sequel to come out, which Steve Lemme says will be partially funded with the help of Kickstarter with filming to begin sometime in 2015.

The mostly Canadian crowd came to the rescue of singer Michelle Madeira, who was struggling with "The Star Spangled Banner" Tuesday night when her microphone started cutting out.

She was performing both the U.S. and Canadian anthems prior to the Nashville Predators vs. Toronto Maple Leafs game at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

Unfortunately, for Canada, the Maple Leafs lost 9-2.

Here's Elsa like you've never seen her before: with a five o' clock shadow.

The Boston Bruins chose a "Frozen" theme this year in their annual Halloween visit to the Boston Children's Hospital, and the photos will melt your cold, cold heart.

Dougie Hamilton and Matt Fraser arrived as Elsa and her sister Anna, with the rest of the players going as Kristoff, Sven, Hans and Olaf the snowman.

The guys even attempted to sing their own version of "Let It Go," according to Sports Illustrated.
