NHL All Star Weekend-First Time All Stars

January 23, 2009

This year’s NHL All Star Weekend in Montreal taking place this weekend is sure to be the toast of both the town and the league. There is already a huge buzz in Montreal, as it is the Canadien’s 100th year anniversary. Furthermore, Montreal is well represented at this year’s event, with Alex Kovalev, Mike Komisarek, Andrei Markov and Carey Price all representing the storied Montreal franchise. Even greater cause for excitement at this year’s All Star weekend is the appearance and emergence of several young stars making their All Star game debuts. So, in no particular order, Sports Poster Warehouse gives props to this new breed of NHL All Stars.

Vintage NHL Posters

January 15, 2009

Hi everybody, happy January!

Mid-winter is always a time of great anticipation in the world of sports. The Super Bowl is weeks away, March Madness is just around the corner and the NHL and NBA seasons are both increasing with intensity by the day. The staff here at Sports Poster Warehouse want to take time to honor some of the most memorable moments in sports. With that said, we will honor some of the great vintage and not so vintage memories, one major sport at a time, with hockey and the NHL being first up.

5. From the 1975 Stanley Cup Semifinals, this rare, spectacular image features one of the greatest Philadelphia Flyers of all-time, the Hall of Fame superstar Bobby Clarke, helping the old Spectrum erupt in joy after scoring a goal that helped finally bury the New York Islanders in Game 7.

4. This rare, beautiful poster features the great Super Mario Lemieux circling the ice at old Chicago Stadium on June 1, 1992 with hockey’s holy grail, the Stanley Cup, after his Pittsburgh Penguins completed a sweep of the Chicago Blackhawks.

3. This spectacular poster commemorates what will go down as one of the most beloved days in the history of Buffalo sports, the 2008 Winter Classic at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Taking you back to the thrilling conclusion of the dramatic game, this poster features the signature image of the day – the Pittsburgh Penguins’ sensational Sidney Crosby breaking in on toque-capped Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller on the final breakaway of the overtime shootout, just a second away from potting the winner and celebrating victory.

2. It was one of the most emotional moments in hockey history - after 20 years of thrilling crowds, setting records and winning cups, The Great One decided it was time to move on. In the pre-game ceremony, with friends and colleagues from throughout his career on hand, and a packed house at Madison Square Garden applauding as one, Wayne Gretzky gave his next-to-final salute to the fans while in uniform.

1. It was the greatest hockey series of all-time - Canada vs. Russia, The Summit Series 1972. The greatest rivalry in hockey, played out over the month of September, four games in Canada, four in Moscow. At the end of this greatest series came the greatest goal – Paul Henderson’s game-winner with less than a minute to play. It is a legendary moment in hockey history.

2008-2009 NHL Season-Mid-Season Report

January 7, 2009
The 2008-2009 NHL season is at it’s midway point. There have been a ton of great hits, saves and goals. The action has been both intense and fierce. The power house teams, the Sharks, Red Wings, Capitals and Flames have all continued to dominate the league, as they all sit at the top of their respective divisions. The Bruins and Flyers have both been major surprises this season. While both teams are in first place in their division, the big surprise is the convincing fashion in which they’ve done it, having dismantled many high quality teams in the process.
As per usual, veterans Joe Thornton, Jarome Iginla and Marian Hossa lead both their teams and the league in many offensive categories. These players seem to be counted upon year after year. Young superstars Sidney Crosby, Alexander Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin each continue to dominate the National Hockey League. With tremendous speed, talent and physical attributes, these players will control the game of hockey for years to come.
There is a new breed of young superstars that are currently making their ascent in the NHL. These players all have superb skill, desire and flash, and should all be factors in the NHL for quite some time. With that said, Sports Poster Warehouse is celebrating the great start to the season and to these young, up and coming stars with brand new NHL player posters.

Bobby Orr-”The Goal”

January 2, 2009

The staff here at Sports Poster Warehouse are indeed very excited! For one, it is now 2009! Thus, we wish you a happy and healthy new year. We are also stoked because we have just gotten one of the most sought after and memorable sports photographs ever!

It was May 10, 1970 – Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals at the Boston Garden - and, despite being dominated for the first three games of the series, the St. Louis Blues clawed their way to a 3-3 draw at the end of regulation time. As the stuffy air at the old barn thickened with anticipation, the puck dropped for the extra frame. On the first shift, the series built to a crescendo: Derek Sanderson retrieved the puck behind the net, sent it in front to the pinching defenseman, and in a split-second – SNAP – the puck is redirected past Glen Hall, Bobby Orr dives headlong in joy across the crease, the fans go crazy, and the rest is history! In classic black-and-white, this legendary photographic image has it all: Orr’s ecstacy; Hall’s defeated stumble; the Garden’s now-lost majesty; the fans’ instant reaction; all culminating in the moment that the Bruins finally won the Cup again for the first time in 29 years.

“THE GOAL”
