Los Angeles to host 2017 NHL All Star Game

There are a few NHL teams celebrating special anniversaries in the 2016/17 season, but of course just one of them will be hosting the All-Star weekend. It’s now been confirmed that the honour will go to Los Angeles as the Kings will be celebrating their 50th season in the league. However, the St. Louis Blues, Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins also launched their NHL franchises in 1967 along with the Minnesota North Stars and California Seals, two franchises which no longer exist. In addition, the Toronto Maple Leafs will be celebrating their 100th birthday as will the league itself as it was launched back in 1917.

Broncos defence shuts down Panthers to take Super Bowl

It certainly wasn’t pretty, but the Denver Broncos were extremely successful at containing this season’s best NFL offence in their 24-10 Super Bowl victory over the Carolina Panthers at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California on February 7th. Panthers’ 26-year-old quarterback Cam Newton was held in check and his 39-year-old counterpart Peyton Manning didn’t really have much to do for the Broncos on his way to his second Super Bowl victory. It was Manning’s record 200th NFL win, including the playoffs, and he may be back for another season later this year.
