WATCH: Jason Chimera breaks nose against Detroit Red Wings

Hockey players are known for their toughness and Jason Chimera is no exception. About five minutes into the first period, Jason Chimera collided with Brendan Smith by the Red Wings bench.

Mike Babcock was so mad at a referee, he asked Pierre McGuire for help

Mike Babcock and NBC’s Pierre McGuire often have a contentious relationship with their in-game banter. Whenever McGuire talks to Babcock, his disdain for the process can’t be hidden.

GIF: Phantom Penalty Robs Detroit Red Wings of Goal vs. Capitals

Detroit Red Wings forward Luke Glendening was whistled for — and this is not an exaggeration — one of the worst penalty calls you will ever see. Capitals goalie Braden Holtby tripped on his own skates coming out from behind the net, allowing Drew Miller to fire the puck home. Except the refs waved it off and pinned Holtby’s trip on Glendening. Only … … Glendening didn’t...
