    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 […]

    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.  […]

    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 […]

    San Jose Sharks captain Joe Thornton didn’t think much of his team’s performance in New York last night during a 5-2 loss, as he referred to the Rangers as “the softest team we played against” during the Sharks’ recent road trip.  For his part, Rangers head coach John Tortorella wasn’t impressed with Jumbo Joe’s comments.  […]

    Trailing 4-3 with 1:27 remaining in last night’s game against the Anaheim Ducks, the Washington Capitals were in need of a game-tying goal.  In situations like this, Caps head coach Bruce Boudreau usually calls on Alex Ovechkin to work some of his magic, but to the surprise of anyone watching the game and Ovechkin himself, […]
