Mattias Ekholm’s Eye-Popping Goal Ends Carey Price’s Shutout Streak

The Nashville Predators are blessed with a number of talented, well-known defensemen: Shea Weber and Roman Josi are garnering Norris Trophy consideration, while both Seth Jones and Ryan Ellis came to the NHL as familiar names to hockey fans across North America.

Tonight against the Montreal Canadiens, however, it was Mattias Ekholm’s time to shine. A rangy Swede in his second full NHL season, Ekholm has a strong pedigree of his own, having won Rookie of the Year and Defenseman of the Year honors in Sweden before crossing the Atlantic. With Carey Price working the longest shutout streak of his career, Ekholm picks up a puck at center ice, waits for his teammates to clear the zone, and attacks the net confidence.

Split the D, get hauled down, roof a shot from your knees to give your team the lead. Ekholm almost makes it look simple, doesn’t he?

How to get an NHL jersey customized for just $5

custom jersey
Hockey season will be here before you know it, and if you have been thinking about getting a new jersey to be ready for Opening Night, now is the time to act!

Ice Jerseys, an outstanding source for NHL, international, or just about any hockey jersey you can think of, has cut loose with an incredible 48-hour special. Now until Friday, August 3rd 2012 at noon Eastern time, you can get pro-quality customization on any jersey for just $5!

Low Price meets High-Quality Service

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a big believer in Ice Jerseys and the quality of their work. A few years ago I received a blank Nashville Predators jersey as a Christmas present, and I shipped it to Ice Jerseys to have my Forechecker #35 (a clear jersey foul, I know, so sue me) stitched on.

Those customization services normally run from $54-$84, so this is a tremendous discount being offered right now. There’s no coupon code required, just buy any regular or sale-priced jersey, and customization services are included for just $5! The price may be cheap, but the quality is top-notch. Even after countless times wearing it to games at Bridgestone Arena, it’s still in great shape.

Time’s a-wasting

ST PAUL, MN - JULY 9: Chuck Fletcher, general ...

This is a great way to celebrate the big move that your favorite NHL team has made this summer. Do you need a NASH #61 New York Rangers jersey, or one celebrating the arrival of Zach Parise and/or Ryan Suter in Minnesota? Take advantage of this offer, and you’ll be all geared up in time for the first drop of the puck.

But act quickly! Friday, August 3rd at noon Eastern, it’s all over!

Can you name the only general manager in NHL history to win a Stanley Cup with more than one team?

Probably not, and that’s just one example of how GM’s labor in relative obscurity in the National Hockey League.

Where to find a New Jersey Devils “shersey”

NEW YORK, NY - MAY 16:  Ilya Kovalchuk #17 of ...

“Sherseys”, or t-shirts with your favorite NHL player’s name & number, are all the rage these days, making a great every-day way to show your support of your favorite player & team. Especially in the summer months, it’s much more practical to wear a shersey than a full-blown hockey jersey, whether to work, or going out with friends.

With the New Jersey Devils battling in the Stanley Cup Final these days, Devils gear is growing increasingly popular. One great outlet to find this kind of gear (some spell it “shersey”, some use “shirsey”) is at FansEdge, which has pretty much everything you can think of for sports fans.

Reebok New Jersey Devils Ilya Kovalchuk red shersey with Name and Number T-ShirtIlya Kovalchuk #17 red shersey by Reebok Martin Brodeur Red shersey Reebok New Jersey Devils Name and Number T-ShirtMartin Brodeur #30 red shersey by Reebok Travis Zajac Red Reebok New Jersey Devils Name and Number T-ShirtTravis Zajac #19 red New Jersey Devils shersey

If the Devils can pull off another Stanley Cup victory, I’m guessing we’ll see a lot more of these become available!
