The Winter Games united hockey fans from around the world, lovers of the game flooded their TV’s, rooting their team towards medal placement. There is always plenty of excitement in the matches played throughout the games, with the NHL season on hold and players representing their respective countries, the games iced the way for any fan to expand their cheering demographic. It was possible for virtually any fan of any team to find their voice no matter what country was competing. Especially with Team Canada winning gold, and their roster filled entirely with NHL players. The list went on an on with the amount of NHL talent in full force in Sochi, but alas the ceremonies are closed and the NHL season faces off again beginning tonight.

While the games allowed for friendly competition between friends, the Olympics were a chance for some people to go even further. If you missed out during the Olympic run, you can get in on the action with half a season left of hockey to be played. Gambling in sports goes glove and glove with the excitement of the game, and SportsBettingDime.com, is a prime way for fans of the game to add another level of excitement to the season. Even if your team isn’t dominating their conference, it doesn’t mean you cant win in another way.

Whether a friendly bet between friends or placed in an online forum, upping the ante, so to speak, gives an added excitement to the outcome of a game. Perhaps actually placing a monetary bet isn’t you style, but placing a bet among friends to do something embarrassing is always a fun option. Players do it all the time and take to social media to share the stakes…

Friendly competition, it’s a good thing, especially if you’re certain that your team will be hoisting Lord Stanley at seasons end.


Winter was hooked on hockey by age 6, when she first witnessed a bench clearing brawl between the Boston Bruins and the Ottawa Senators. Growing from hockey fan to hockey player, Winter followed her passions by founding The Pink Puck. While she also loves fashion and the outdoors, hockey will always be her center ice.
