A guide for sports fans on how to watch and appreciate the game of hockey
More and more fans are watching the NHL each week, but many of them don’t know exactly what they should be watching. How does an offense create shooting lanes for its best sniper? When a center breaks through and splits between two defensemen, which defender is to blame? Why does a goalie look like a Hall of Famer one week and a candidate for the minor leagues the next? This guide for sports fans on how to watch and appreciate the game of hockey takes you inside a coach’s mind as he builds a roster or constructs a game plan, to the chaos of the goalie’s crease, and deep into the perpetual chess match between offense and defense. Discussing topics such as what to look for when a team goes on the power play and why playing center might be the most grueling job in sports, Take Your Eye Off the Puck shows fans how to get the most out of watching their favorite sport.

Read information about the authorGreg Wyshynski is an award-winning writer, blogger and editor, best known for creating Yahoo! Sports' popular hockey blog, Puck Daddy.
He was hired by Yahoo! In April 2008 after nearly a decade as a sports editor with The Connection Newspapers in the Washington, D.C. area. Immediately, Puck Daddy moved to the front of the pack in the hockey blog revolution, blending humor with hard news and features to create a unique voice in sports journalism. Departments like Jersey Fouls became must-reads, while Puck Daddy became the go-to place for instant analysis of breaking news, both serious and frivolous, thanks to a staff of bold, insightful and talented writers.
Wyshynski, a member of the Professional Hockey Writers Association, became the first blogger ever named to The Hockey News "100 People of Power and Influence" list, making that special issue several more times. He has covered Stanley Cup Finals, NHL All-Star Games, NHL Drafts, Winter Classics, outdoor games and countless other hockey events. He was on site for Yahoo! Sports for the last three Olympics, including as a general columnist for the 2012 London Games.
He also once accidentally got an NHL referee suspended for doing tequila shots with him and tweeting the photo.
For nearly a decade, Wyshynski served as an editor for The Connection Newspapers of Northern Virginia, a chain of 16 weekly publications with a combined circulation of over 125,000 households. The Connection publishes in the Washington, D.C. suburbs of Fairfax, Arlington, and Loudoun counties (Va.), as well as the cities of Alexandria (Va.), Mount Vernon (Va.), and Potomac (Md.). He received over 50 Virginia Press Association awards for writing and editing, including four first-place citations for sports column writing and one Best-In-Show nomination for a feature story about female high-school football players.
While working for The Connection, Wyshynski branched out into other sports writing. He was an editor forSportsFan Magazine, a quarterly sports publication in Washington, D.C., writing cover stories on hockey fighting among other topics. His weekly syndicated sports column, "The Jester's Quart," appeared on SportsFanMagazine.com and several other websites.
In 2006, Wyshynski signed on with AOL Sports' FanHouse as an NHL writer, joining a murder's row of hockey bloggers that included James Mirtle. That led to a stint writing the "NHL Closer" for Deadspin under editor Will Leitch, after which he left that site and The Connection to join Yahoo! Sports.
His work has also appeared in The Hockey News, Playboy.com, The Fourth Period Magazine, Brutus, and countless digital outlets.
In 2010, Wyshynski and co-host Rob Pizzo started Puck Daddy Radio, a daily podcast that ran on The Score in Canada in conjunction with Yahoo! Sports. The show combined the whimsical vibe of the blog with insightful interviews with hockey personalities.
After PDR ended in Oct. 2011, Wyshynski partnered with Jeff Marek of Sportsnet for Marek Vs. Wyshynski, a daily podcast that quickly rocketed to being the top-rated hockey podcast on iTunes. Their banter, witty tangents and news-making interviews made the show and must-listen, gathering a considerable following that led to several live events.
He has appeared on dozens of podcasts as a guest, most notably The Bill Simmons Podcast, Doug Loves Movies, The Stars Wars Minute and NPR's The Weigh In. He's a frequent guest on several radio networks, including ESPN Radio, Fox Sports Radio, XM NHL Network Radio, TSN Radio, CBC Radio and Sportsnet Radio.
Wyshynski writes and hosts several video segments on Yahoo.com, including "The 2-Minute Minor" and "The Wysh List" during the NHL season.He has appeared as an analyst on Sportsnet, NBC Sports Network, CSN Washington and CSN New England.
He's also appeared as a panelist on ESPN, offering a humorous look at sports history on programs such as "Cold Pizza," "5 Reason You Can't Blame" and "The Missing Link."
