    Picture Of The Day: Sidney Crosby’s Resurrection

    The Penguins’ savior has risen! But unlike Jesus Christ, who according to the Catholics took three days to rise from the dead, Sidney Crosby required a little more than one weekend to return to action.  In fact, it took the Penguins’ captain nearly one full year to recover from a concussion he sustained last season […]

  • Kings’ Kyle Clifford Faceplants Into The Boards (Video)

    Kings’ Kyle Clifford Faceplants Into The Boards (Video)

    Kyle Clifford’s biggest enemy on the ice is usually the opposing team’s enforcer, but last night in Anaheim during a game against the Ducks, his most dangerous foe turned out to be the boards at the Honda Center. After running into the Ducks’ Brandon McMillan in the corner midway through the second period, Clifford fell […]

  • Craig Smith Puts It Up And Over The Empty Net (Video)

    Craig Smith Puts It Up And Over The Empty Net (Video)

    In the game of hockey, shooting the puck over the net from inside the goal grease is probably harder than simply shooting it into the back of the net.  With that being said, I don’t expect anyone to be applauding the Nashville Predators’ Craig Smith for accomplishing that difficult feat during last night’s game against […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Asham vs. McLeod — 11/15/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Asham vs. McLeod — 11/15/11

    An incredible goal from Matt Duchene wasn’t the only highlight to come from last night’s game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Colorado Avalanche.  Evgeni Malkin also provided an spectacular goal of his own, and enforcers Arron Asham and Cody McLeod gave us a spirited 20-second bout that featured plenty of devastating right hands. Duchene […]

  • Matt Duchene Scored An Absolute Beauty (Video)

    Matt Duchene Scored An Absolute Beauty (Video)

    Could this be an early “Goal of the Year” candidate?  Sorry Jamie Benn, but it has my vote! With only a few minutes remaining in the opening period and the Colorado Avalanche already leading 1-0, Matt Duchene took a pass from Paul Stastny, dragged the puck through his legs and found the back of the […]

  • Artie Lang and Nick Di Paolo Does a Spot-On Don Cherry (Video)

    Artie Lang and Nick Di Paolo Does a Spot-On Don Cherry (Video)

    Few voices are more iconic in hockey than Don Cherry. Often imitated, never duplicated, Don Cherry is the voice of hockey on the CBC. And, apparently, Artie Lang does an incredible impression of him, as heard on this video. To be fair, it’s not all that different from the way every other American imitates Don […]

  • Flyers Mock The Lightning’s Defensive Trap (Video)

    Flyers Mock The Lightning’s Defensive Trap (Video)

    No one is a fan of the 1-3-1 neutral zone trap in hockey.  Not the fans.  Not the media.  And certainly not the Philadelphia Flyers.  That was evident during last night’s game between the Flyers and the Tampa Bay Lightning, as it didn’t take long for the trap to take over. Less than one minute […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — McQuaid vs. Martin — 11/7/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — McQuaid vs. Martin — 11/7/11

    For the first time all season, the Boston Bruins appear to be clicking on all cylinders.  Their scores have been scoring, their goalies are making saves when called upon, and their fighters are getting the job done as well.  All of these factors were evident during last night’s game against the New York Islanders, as […]

  • Daniel Paille Gets A Puck In The Face (Video)

    Daniel Paille Gets A Puck In The Face (Video)

    Boston Bruins left wing Daniel Paille made a strong case for mandatory visors last night. Without his visor, he might very well have been killed. Check the video for brutal footage of Paille taking a hard New York Islanders’ slapshot right in the face, and wait for the debate about visors to heat up again […]

  • Chris Carpenter Skates With The St. Louis Blues (Video)

    Chris Carpenter Skates With The St. Louis Blues (Video)

    After winning the second World Series title of his career, perhaps St. Louis Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter should consider taking a shot at wining a Stanley Cup next.  He took the first step towards doing just that yesterday, as Carpenter stepped on the ice and took part in a practice with the St. Louis Blues. […]

  • Wild’s Cal Clutterbuck Punches A Referee (Video)

    Wild’s Cal Clutterbuck Punches A Referee (Video)

    One week ago I said that soccer, not hockey, may be the toughest sport to officiate.  After watching NHL linesman Darren Gibbs take a punch to the face from Cal Clutterbuck, I think I’d like to retract that statement. The incident occurred during a fight between the Wild’s Clutterbuck and the Vancouver Canucks’ Maxim Lapierre.  […]

  • Sabres’ Patrick Kaleta Headbutts Flyers’ Jakub Voracek (Video)

    Sabres’ Patrick Kaleta Headbutts Flyers’ Jakub Voracek (Video)

    Hockey players wear helmets for protection, but Patrick Kaleta of the Buffalo Sabres has a knack for using his as a weapon. He has done it in the past, headbutting members of the opposition on two separate occasions last season.  He was at it once again last night, as he drove his head into the […]
