    Tom Hanks Caught On The LA Kings’ Dance Cam (Video)

    Tom Hanks has never really done much dancing in any of the movies he’s starred in, and I think I now know why after watching him shake and groove to the music during a recent Kings game. I’m not sure if the “fake headphone and head-bobbing” action is still in these days, but at least […]

  • Canadian National Anthem Botched At Sabres Game (Video)

    Canadian National Anthem Botched At Sabres Game (Video)

    The Canadian national anthem is rarely performed at hockey games that do not involve Canadian teams, and perhaps they should keep it that way following this debacle by the anthem singer during last night’s game between the Buffalo Sabres and the Carolina Hurricanes at the First Niagara Center. Her error (It’s supposed to be “From […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Thornton vs. Rosehill — 3/6/12

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Thornton vs. Rosehill — 3/6/12

    During what may have very well been the best night of Fisticuffs from the 2011-12 NHL season, last night’s action on the ice provided a total of nine fight.  At least half of those were worthy of some consideration for “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” honors, including Dennis Seidenberg vs. Colby Armstrong, Brandon Dubinsky […]

    One way to eliminate vicious hits to the head in the game of hockey is to suspend players who delivered a check to the head of an opposing player.  That has been the strategy adopted by the NHL disciplinary committee. Another way that players can eliminate the problem of head-shots in the game of hockey […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Brown vs. Staubitz — 3/3/12

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Brown vs. Staubitz — 3/3/12

    Despite the fact that both teams are sitting near the bottom of the NHL’s standings, the rivalry between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens is as fierce as ever.  That was evident during Saturday night’s game between the two clubs, as a hit by the Canadiens’s Brad Staubitz on Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Thornton vs. Boulton — 3/1/12

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Thornton vs. Boulton — 3/1/12

    Two of the NHL’s toughest and best enforcers squared off at center ice inside the TD Gardens last night, as Shawn Thornton and Eric Boulton came to blows during a game between the Boston Bruins and the New Jersey Devils.  This type of altercation is certainly nothing new to these two combatants, who have combined […]

    In an earlier post on Devin Setoguchi’s comical shootout failure from last night, I happened to mention that for once, “it wasn’t the Habs embarrassing themselves.”  Truth be told, that statement isn’t entirely true.  Sure, the Canadiens weren’t the most embarrassing team on the ice during last night’s game against the Minnesota Wild, but it […]

    Devin Setoguchi Blows A Tire During Shootout FAIL! (Video)

    Being friends with several fans of the Montreal Canadiens, I have been afforded the privilege of watching that inept team embarrass themselves on the ice game in and game out this season.  It has been quite entertaining at times, however, in a rather unusual turn of events, it wasn’t the Habs embarrassing themselves last night.  […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Beleskey vs. Tropp — 2/29/12

    Last night’s game between the Buffalo Sabres and the Anaheim Ducks provided a total of four fights, and they all occurred within the final five minutes of the game.  However, the first altercation between Corey Tropp of the Sabres and Matt Beleskey of the Ducks was the only one that we can really consider to […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Staubitz vs. Labrie — 2/28/12

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Staubitz vs. Labrie — 2/28/12

    With no wins in their last five game and just one win in their last eight, nothing seems to be able to motivate the Montreal Canadiens players these days.  Not even an inspirational fight, like the one Brad Staubitz provided them with when he laid a beating on Pierre-Cedric Labrie during last night’s game against […]

    A Donald Trump Sighting At MSG For Rangers-Devils (Video)

    I’m not quite sure if Donald Trump actually enjoys the game of hockey, or if he simply thought Jeremy Lin and the Knicks were in town, but somehow he ended up at Madison Square Gardens last night to watch the New York Rangers take on the New Jersey Devils.  Thankfully, he was treated to a […]
