    It was a busy day of fisticuffs in the NHL yesterday, as a brawl between players and coaches unfolded during a game between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins, while the other five games on Sunday’s schedule helped contribute an additional six fights to the day’s total.  And while the Pens and Flyers clearly […]

    All Hell Breaks Loose At Conclusion Of Penguins vs. Flyers (Video)

    With the Flyers leading 6-3 and only one minute remaining in their Atlantic Division match-up against the Pittsburgh Penguins yesterday afternoon, all hell broke loose.  And when I say “all hell broke loose,” I’m not just talking about a few fights and an exchange of some unfriendly words. Not even close! Instead, “all hell breaking […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Olver vs. Booth — 3/28/12

    When David Booth of the Vancouver Canucks and Mark Olver of the Colorado Avalanche dropped the gloves during the first period of last night’s game, the Canucks’ Maxim Lapierre was quick to arrive on the scene, believing that Booth would need some back-up.  He was wrong. Booth looked awfully comfortable with his gloves off, especially […]

    Two surprising facts were unveiled during Saturday night’s game between Winnipeg Jets and the Nashville Predators.  The first is that the Atlanta Thrashers actually did have fans before being moved north of the boarder to Winnipeg prior to the start of this season.  The second is that those fans, although few in number, apparently still […]

    The Pens And Sens Laugh Their Way Through The National Anthems (Video)

    Earlier in the month we learned that some do not take too kindly to those who wear hats during the national anthem.  I wonder how those same individuals would feel about seeing someone laugh throughout the singing of the anthem? While they may not be all that impressed with the giggle-fest that broke out during […]

    The Dallas Stars are fighting for a playoff spot, both figuratively and literally.  That was certainly the case last night when they hosted the Vancouver Canucks, and while they would go on to lose the battle on the scoreboard, Stars’ forward Jake Dowell was able to earn a win during his first period bout with […]

    Duncan Keith Nearly Took Daniel Sedin’s Head Off Last Night (Video)

    It is no secret that the Chicago Blackhawks and the Vancouver Canucks don’t like each other, and perhaps no player on either team holds more hatred in his heart than Hawks defenseman Duncan Keith. Never was that more evident that during last year’s first-round playoff series between these two teams. After watching Brent Seabrook, go […]
