The NHL regular season begins Wednesday, October 7. As ever, a team's fortune can rise or fall on one player in particular: the goalie. A few extra saves in the coming months can mean the difference between missing the playoffs and making a run for the Cup. Don Cherry always says goalies are a little crazy – you'd have to be to choose to stand in front of 100-mph slapshots – but a look at their car choices show that perhaps they're saner than they might appear. Here are some of today's top goalies, plus five retired stars.

NHL Goalie Rides

The NHL regular season begins Wednesday, October 7. It’s always a special night because briefly, oh so briefly, all 30 teams are equal.

Just say the word Lamborghini and it elicits all sorts of emotions – perhaps different in every person, but powerful as only few automotive brands can induce. So forget about the numbers, here are the feelings that the Huracan brought forth when I was given the rare privilege to immerse myself in the driving and brand experience for a weekend.

By The Emotions: Lamborghini Huracan LP-610

The Lamborghini Huracan LP-610. The Huracan. Lamborghini. Lamborghiiiiini. You can find the numbers anywhere.

Gumball: Kidnap, Fire, Explosions and Pillow Fights

It’s been nearly 20 years since Maximillion Cooper and a small group of wealthy, yet somewhat unhinged friends organized their first rally that saw a pack of supercars and celebrities party their way from England to Italy.

If you think all hybrids and electric vehicles are designed for the pedestrian purpose of helping environmentally-conscious drivers reduce their carbon footprint, it's time for a not-so-sober second thought. Sure, cars like the Toyota Prius, Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Volt remain headline-worthy in their own way, but the real news is how upscale and boutique car manufacturers are using electricity to pump up performance and create some of the quickest cars (lots of) money can buy.
