Anything Crosby Makes for a Good Day

9 08 2012

Welp, we’re a day late posting…I know. But I saw this and went all “daaaaaammmnnnnnnn…” and then got distracted. I blame all the pain killers I’ve taken in the past two weeks. (getting your tonsils out sucks!)


Mr. 87 turned 25 yesterday. Our favorite Captain is growing up so nicely. Dont you think?

those eyes could burn a whole right through anyone…

Anyway, we’re about 65 days (ish) away from hockey season. The mornings are starting to cool down here in Boston. Enough to the point where I dont want to get out of the shower in the morning. That means two things: 1– it’s almost my birthday. And 2– it’s almost Fall.

Fall also means two things: 1. football. And 2– HOCKEY, BABY! Hell to the yeah.

So ladies, here’s some eye candy for you to enjoy.



Throwing out a bone…

5 06 2012

Where are all our men at?

Lately, we have had an odd amount of men following us (on Twitter @HockeysFinest). For a second, we thought for sure it was a mistake. Why would men want to follow a blog in which females talk about “sexy men” all day long.

Then S was all “maybe they have a thing for our cute female readers that comment” (yeah — she called y’all cute) “or the cute writers” … so that’s theory number 1. Men follow the blog because hockey loving females are a small breed?? …Maybe.

Anyway, I was thinking this morning. What if we throw you guys a bone? One post a week, we highlight the young, beautiful, sexy females involved in hockey (players, media, celebs, etc). I know the list may be short — but it could be something to entertain all of you. I’m almost positive you don’t come here to read our fantasies about other NHLers — or maybe you do?

We like to please. Therefore, we need our men followers to comment, tweet (@hockeysfinest or @laurenroche) — is this a good idea to y’all? If we hear nothing…we wont do it.

So guys, comment/tweet away. Is this something you want to see on here? Or maybe you’re lookin’ for something a little more stat heavy? Let us know — or else we won’t change a thing. You’ll be stuck reading our inner thoughts about the beautiful men around the league….forever. ;)


Who Is That Again??

19 04 2012

Dear loyal readers of Hockey’s Finest,

After reading a comment from one reader earlier today, I realized that sometimes we writers (me in particular) sometimes don’t explain things fully.  We get a little keyboard/wordpress happy and just start typing out things that make sense to us, but not at all so that you hockey lovers out there understand our shorthand for the boys.  So here it is, my list of current nicknames, but don’t worry,  your favorite may end up on here soon enough!

Captain Sexpanther:  Jonathan Toews

I know no one will argue with me on this, but I mean DAMN.  What other nickname would suffice?  None, that’s what.  All I have to say is every time I think of him, I have a flashback to “10 Things I Hate About You” when Julia Stiles says “I want you.  I need you.  Oh baby, oh baby”….but I’m completely serious when I say that about Toews.

McDreamy:  Patrick Sharp

He’s the Patrick Dempsey of the hockey world.  That flow is ridiculous.  And look at how cute his puppy is!  M loves :) Other possible nicknames?  DILF.  You know you agree.

Lil’ Peek-A-Boo:  Patrick Kane

You know when you pay games with little kids and they always seem to have that mischievous grin on their faces like they just did something wrong?  Ladies and gentlemen, that is Patrick Kane to the T.  He’s always up to no good, but damn does that smirk of his make you weak in the knees.

Nugget:  Martin St. Louis

Look how tiny he is!  I call everyone that is below 5’4″ “nuggets”, since I’m 5’8″ and seem to tower over them.  Even though St. Louis is nowhere near 5’4″ (he’s listed as 5’8″), he looks like a 12 year old boy who got lost on his way home from school in terms of height.  He’s a fun-sized hockey player, but demands the respect of a man the size of Zdeno Chara.  Love this lil’ nugget.

Beauty:  Kris Versteeg

Ah, Monsieur Versteeg.  Je t’aime.  *fangirl* Anyway, there’s more to Versteeg than meets the eye.  He’s one of the characters that everyone wants in the locker room.  If you don’t believe me, look back to a post I did a few weeks ago on him and see some of his personality.  You’ll fall in love.  But watch out, he’s mine :)

The Wonder Twins:  Daniel and Henrik Sedin

During my sister’s freshman year of college (she went to Boston University, whaddup), she lived down the hall from two guys that we liked to call “The Wonder Twins”.  These kids had known each other since elementary school, and were now living together, and still do live together, in college.  They were attached at the hip and the closet (they frequented Ed Hardy……ew).  Same with the Sedins, except for the whole actually being twins thing.  They know what the other is doing at all times, and I’m still baffled that Vancouver somehow landed both of them.  Other possible nicknames:  TweedleDee and TweedleDum.

Santa and Buddy the Elf:  Brandon Dubinsky and Brian Boyle

Ever since NHL 24/7:  Flyers vs. Rangers, I’ve been obsessed with Brian Boyle.  I already had the obsession with Brandon Dubinsky.  When they showed the Rangers’ Christmas party, I fangirled my jersey off.  When Boyle shouted, “SANTA!  I KNOW HIM!” at Dubinsky, I fangirled my face off.  Yeah.  My whole face.

That’s all the nicknames for now, but I’m sure there’ll be a few more in the future.  Do you have any nicknames for your favorite players?  Let us know in the comments!



12 04 2012

Ladies.  LADIES.  Patrick Sharp has returned to Twitter.  I REPEAT:  HIS ROYAL SEXINESS PATRICK SHARP IS ON DA TWITTA.  Follow him @10PSharp.  Like now.  Okay good.


I mean, come on, look at that face.  How could you not want to follow that face?  Or that flow?!  He’s a quick tan away from being Henrik Lundqvist’s twin, and we all know how I feel about Hanky.  Maybe I need to move to Thunder Bay to find my future hockey hubby, since the Staal family lives there too.  Yep, it’s decided.  See ya, Chicago, I’m movin’ to Canadia!  (Yes, I meant to write Canadia)  Who’s with me?!


No. Words.

4 03 2012

So, I totally just tried to crawl through my computer screen. This is an oldie– but definitely a goodie.


Max, please stop showing all this skin. It’s just not good for my health.


No, wait. I was just kidding. Show all the skin you want. You’re worth the heart attack.

Some day, I plan on counting every single tattoo on your body. We’ll giggle over a bottle of wine and braid each other’s hair since yours is now long enough.

I miss seeing you in black and gold. And just because I miss you so much, I’m watching the Flyers/Caps game tonight.

*sigh* ...

(Maybe I should block Tumblr from my computer. It only causes trouble…)

Dearest S, 

Please don’t tell *J* I’m crushin’ on her man so hard. I can’t help it. He’s just so — lovable. 



…I have a new boyfriend…

30 09 2011

It’s 11:12pm, 1 minute past 11:11pm. Wanna know what I wished for?!

Yep, I wished for him

I know, I know…I was at a Bruins game—so I should be cheering on my boys. But really, I couldn’t help but just stare at Ottawa’s lineup. First of all, let me just say that if Konopka winked at me ONE MORE TIME (a total of 3 for the whole night)…I would have hopped the glass and– well, I’ll stop myself there…. No, I’m not joking. There were 3 distinct winks right at me. Like: slammed-up-against-the-glass-looking-right-at-me kinda winks. **swoon** Second of all. To the 50 year old man who stole the puck Konopka threw over the glass for me….YOU SUCK! He was winking & smiling at me, not you. Pretty sure, given the chance, he’d take me over you. Give me back my puck.

Dear Konopka, I told my friend from Ottawa to let you know I’ll be waiting for you here in Boston next time you’re in town. You know….to give me my puck, of course… [insert evil smile & devil horns here]

And lastly, a HUGE thanks to my Uncle who gave me free tickets to tonight’s preseason game. Without you, I wouldn’t have been able to sneak my way down (past security) and into glass seats. I LOVE YOU! (PS– keep the tickets coming my way).

Anyway, on to the game. Bruins lost, as you all know. But…who cares?!

Timmy was a Boss, as always…

Timmy T, ladies & gents. Timmy T!

Lucic scored. (the one Bruins goal of the night…)

All I could think about was the song "All I Do is Win" when he scored...

But…he couldn’t do it without the help of his BEST FRIEND (and one of the CUTEST bromances on the team—besides Seguin & Marchand):

Horty <3 back in action

Oh yeah, and for my Pens fans…here’s a throwback for ya:

Taught Kris Letang almost everything he knows...

I have to admit, Gonchar isn’t the most photogenic person on the planet. In fact, I even got a picture of him picking his nose….

the alcohol delayed my reactions....but I swear...his fingers were up there...

Alright, it’s now 11:35…and I’m dreading my alarm clock at 6am. So when you see me tweet about how much I regret coming to this game (& starting my pregame at 4pm) —just remind me that I had a hell of a time & now have a new boyfriend. If you could also remind me to pop some Tylenol for my hangover….you guys would definitely be the best readers EVER.

Konopka: I’m waiting for you. Next time don’t be such a tease. Stop by & say hi. I dont bite………hard. Go ahead. Call me a puck bunny….I dare you ;)

God bless digital cameras <3


We miss your face.

31 07 2011

Max, you’re killing us.

"Girls, I know you miss me--but you'll still see me."

These pictures were just what we needed. A little Talbot love.

"...oh, you miss me that much? Well, let me cancel my plans--I'll be right over..."

It won’t be the same without you in the Black & Vegas Gold sweater next season…but we’ll take any Talbot over no Talbot at all…

"What do you mean I won't be able to sneakily stare at L & S at Southpointe?!?" *heavy sigh*

And we miss staring at you too, Max. We’ll miss your super flirty attitude & your gritty play. Don’t ever change. We love you just the way you are…

"Oh yeah, the Hockey's Finest girls will love it. Send it on over."

God Bless @BauerHockey

Thanks to @BauerHockey (make sure you follow– Baby Seguin & the Cup are their next feature) I’ve had to check on S all day long to make sure she was still alive. Sometimes just 1 Staal Brother is enough to get her going…so I figured 3 may be hard for her to handle. ;) The past two days have been spent following around the best brothers in all of the NHL. We know we did a Staal Love post yesterday, but come on–you can never have enough Staal. I also know that S will LOVE me for this post. So, here we go.

Day 2 with the Staal Brothers

8:30am this was posted

I completely ‘fangirl’ed and bbm’d S yelling (however you can yell via bbm) at her to wake up. There’s no way I could let my best friend sleep this day away. And boy did I tell her to wake up just in time, because soon enough–this happened:

so precious...

The most amazing moment was caught on camera thanks to Bauer. Eric’s son skated for the very first time. Que the ‘aww’ chorus.

Then this beauty showed up on my twitter feed causing me to check and make sure my best friend was still kicking down in the Sunshine State:

Strike a pose JStaal

Thankfully, S survived today fairly well besides a few ‘fangirl’ bbms. She totally handled this better than I did the shirtless Letang pics a few days ago. I’m still trying to get my heart rate back to normal.

PS– This is our 100th post!! YAY! And we also have to thank all of you for reading. We’ve now reached over 5,000 views in just over 2 months! That’s huge! You guys are great and make our lives so much fun :) Love, L & S

PPS — totally buying this shirt for S for her xmas present…

"Just Give Me A Staal"

...This pretty much sums up S' life...

WARNING!! Too sexy for a shirt…

Hi there! This is L’s dog, Blizzard. She has fainted, but I wanted to share why…

all I heard was a "thud"

While she was disappointed to hear about his new “girl”, she’s happy these pictures surfaced. Hello hair. Hello Abs. Hello muscles. Hello Tattoo…

…and how about those board shorts. Only he could pull them off. Lookin’ fly, Tanger. L approves.

Pimp My Ride.

25 07 2011

Some hockey players like to treat themselves to their dream cars as soon as they get a chance to. Who can blame them, right? If I could afford a Lambo, I’d buy one in a heartbeat! But then again, I’d also buy one now and go into debt forever. Anyway, back to the point of this post. (Lambo??? Give me my F-250 super duty with a lift kit -S)

For example: MGreen & Flower — they both had no problem buying their dream cars. It also makes it extremely easy to find them around town! BONUS!

Now stand right there & pose. Yup, right there. Nope, go back. Right there.

I want it. Like now.

Other hockey players like to customize their toys. Take Tanger for instance. As soon as the season ended (aka– not even a week) he decided to put some custom rims on his ride. Must be his way of sulking…

Smile! No? ....ok....

I now know what he drives. Mwhahahaa! EXTRA BONUS! S, please move to Pittsburgh. Forget Chicago & DC…I wanna go on a Scavenger Hunt! (Don’t worry, before you come visit I will go on a city wide recon mission…-S)

And then there is Matt Niskanen. This is an oldie that I stumbled upon today. God Bless Tumblr.

Poor guy–has the worst car in the whole NHL. Or should I say had? Anyone else curious as to what he is driving now?? (A large part of me hopes he still has that car. It would make me feel better about my beat up explorer -S)

Anyone else remember (and love) this show?! I used to watch it religiously back when Paul Walker claimed my heart in The Fast & The Furious. Yeah, I wanted a pimped out ride so I could find some sketchy street in Boston or Providence to “street race” …what in the world was I thinking?? (We thought we were cool, but boy were we so, so wrong! -S)
