    The NHL’s Top 5 2011/12 Rookies After The First Quarter

    With the 2011-12 NHL regular season reaching the quarter mark, we now have an opportunity to analyze the front runners for the Calder Trophy, which is awarded each year to the league’s best rookie. Although it may seem too soon to crown a candidate, this list should help give you all a chance to debate […]

    Picture Of The Day: He Couldn’t Even Stop A Balloon

    With a 1-3 record in three starts this season to go along with his 3.28 goals against average and .893 save percentage, some Phoenix Coyotes fans might tell you that Jason LaBarbera couldn’t even stop a balloon.  It appears as though the Coyotes’ back-up netminder has proven them right after failing to get his stick […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Gagner vs. Halischuk — 11/22/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Gagner vs. Halischuk — 11/22/11

    Sam Gagner and Matt Halischuk’s second period bout during last night’s game between the Edmonton Oilers and the Nashville Predators was by no means an overly-exciting fight.  But when you consider the fact that it was Halischuk’s first career fight and Gagner’s first fight of the season, we can’t help but give both players props […]

  • Jonathan Toews Demonstrates Some Insane Shooting Accuracy (Video)

    Jonathan Toews Demonstrates Some Insane Shooting Accuracy (Video)

    Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews has never won the accuracy shooting event at the NHL All-Star Game SuperSkills Competition, which is awfully hard to believe after watching him hit four targets in four shots from the far blue line. The obvious explanation for the video below is that Toews had some help from CGI, but […]

  • Matt Frattin Dangles, Sets Up A Beautiful Goal (Video)

    Matt Frattin Dangles, Sets Up A Beautiful Goal (Video)

    The Toronto Maple Leafs’ fourth goal during last night’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning was a special one for Joe Colborne, as it was the first goal of his NHL career.  It was also a special goal for anyone else watching it, thanks to some nifty moves from Colborne’s linemate, Matt Frattin. With the […]

    Picture Of The Day: Movember!

    The month of Movember is almost over, and while many individuals in the National Hockey League decided to get involved in their attempt to raise awareness on men’s health issues, it will soon be time for each and every one of them to rid themselves of all that itchy, unwanted facial hair. As for these […]

    Predators Fan Kicks Leafs’ Joffrey Lupul Through The Glass (Video)

    Here is an interesting video.  It may be from last Thursday, but I just so happened to stumble across it today on YouTube.  It comes from a game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena.  After being called for a penalty, Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul stood along the boards with […]

    Bruins Fans Brawl With Canadiens Fans (Video)

    The Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens have one of the most hate-filled rivalries in all of sports.  Whenever these two teams hook up, something interesting is bound to happen, whether it is a player giving the fans the middle-finger following a goal, or a player being stretchered off the ice following a controversial hit… […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — McGrattan vs. Boll — 11/19/11

    There was plenty of action during Saturday night’s game between the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Nashville Predators, as overtime was needed in order for the Preds to record the 4-3 victory.  However, despite all of the goals that were scored, perhaps the most entertaining part of the game came in the first minute, as […]

    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 […]
