Day 33 of 2018 Stanley Quips: Legalized Gambling

Unlike the Washington-Tampa series so far, the Vegas-Winnipeg series has been a much closer battle in every way possible. After Winnipeg got off to a ferocious start to win Game 1, it was Vegas who returned the favor in Game 2. Just like that, the series is tied at 1 as both franchises move the […]

Week 25 of the Nerdy 30+1: Hall Passes and Better-Angelo

Another week in and we’re just getting closer to the postseason. All I can say is I am glad that not every team has played the next milestone of games to eliminate a team from postseason contention because the races for the final spots in each conference is really close. Especially in the Western Conference, […]

As a head’s up, today’s post was published before taking into account of today’s (March 11th) games Hello, how are you all? My name is the DC Sports Dork and I have been away on vacation for far so long that I thought it was fair to reintroduce myself. Anywho, lots have happened in the […]

Week 19 of the Nerdy 30+1: Chelsea Knackered and Phan-Oof

As we get closer to the trade deadline, every team across the league will need to figure out whether they have any shot at making the playoffs or not. Sure, they can go ahead and look at the standings and think they have picked up enough overtime losses to keep them going. But really, they […]
