Have you ever looked at a sports photo and think of a funny caption? I have, and here’s a collection of some. If you enjoy this one, let us know in the comments section afterward.
The new 2017/18 season began on Wednesday, October 4, 2017, and is now two weeks old.
Let’s take a look at some photos and catch up with what happened this second week of NHL regular season action.
Here’s Volume 8 of comic captions – Week 2 of 2017/18 season
“This has got to be my last NHL season… getting these jerseys on is tough on my arthritis.”
As the never-ending saga of Jaromir Jagr continues, now in Calgary… every hockey fan has to wonder how he does it. At the ripe age of 45 and counting, Jagr has stated this will be his last season. Seems we’ve heard that all before, but the real question is will he actually be able to help the Calgary Flames this season?
Obviously, when a player with his experience and stamina plays for your team the respect is unfailing, but can he still perform? In his first four games, he already has two assists. He’s averaging almost 14 minutes of ice time in those four games and has a power play assist to his credit.
The guy is simply an ageless wonder and all the young players who have the distinction of playing alongside him should absorb every ounce of knowledge he throws their way. This will be his 27th NHL season and his ninth NHL team a record which may stand for some time.
“My stick says ‘WARRIOR’ for a reason… bring it on!”
The Los Angeles Kings have started their 2017/18 with an impressive 5-0-1 record with the lone loss to the Calgary Flames in overtime. Most of that success can be credited to the revival of goalie Jonathan Quick’s play. In four games this new season, he has racked up a 4-0-1 record with a stellar .950 save percentage and a stingy 1.59 goals against average.
Those are the Jonathan Quick statistics the Kings missed last season as he was on the mend from a nearly season-long injury.
He’s back… and as good as ever. That can do nothing but help the Kings’ playoff aspirations. The team blew up their front office and removed their head coach Darryl Sutter over the summer turning some heads. So far the moves seem brilliant, but we’re just six games into the new season.
Quick’s continued excellent net play will make or break this team.
In 76 games we’ll see whether the Kings are participating in the postseason or not.
“Oh yes… that’s what scoring a goal feels like!”
The Tampa Bay Lightning are scoring goals and Steven Stamkos netted his first goal of the season on October 12, 2017, against the Cup-winning Pittsburgh Penguins. He currently has just two goals but has contributed 11 assists in eight games, giving him 1.63 points per game. The last goal Stamkos scored was almost a year ago on November 15, 2016, against the Detroit Red Wings.
With Stamkos back in the lineup, the Lightning’s chances just spiked considerably… they will be in the hunt for the Eastern Conference top spot when it’s all said and done.
“Hey if Ovechkin can score on his back, wait till they get a load of my belly flop backhander.”
The New Jersey Devils are off to a fast start but got shut out last night by the San Jose Sharks 3-0. Still, they possess a respectable 6-2-0 record good for first place in the Metropolitan Division. The upstart Devils have Taylor Hall with one goal, eight assists in their eight games, while young defenseman Will Butcher has handed out nine helpers to show why the Devils are ahead of the Penguins… for now.
The Devils’ offense is being supplemented by the first overall pick Nico Hischier’s two goals, five assists in eight games. He’s making a difference and is proving why he was selected first in the NHL Entry Draft last summer. He had a three-point game against the Ottawa Senators on October 19, 2017, showing his offensive explosiveness.
“Excuse me while I steal this away from you and score.”
Auston Matthews continues to amaze every defender in the NHL who tries to defend him. In his last game against the Detroit Red Wings, his sharpshooting skills were on display, and even with a bad angle, he beat veteran goalie Jimmy Howard for his sixth goal of the young season.
Just watch as he picks the short side with speed and accuracy.
