    Picture Of The Day: Is Your Mask Looking At Me?

    Before you begin to believe that Carey Price is as creepy as the mask he was wearing during yesterday’s NHL Heritage Classic, we should inform you that the design by artist David Arrigo, which featured the look of an old-school goalie mask with eyes on the top and a mouth on the bottom, was a […]

    Check Out This Nut-Shot From The Heritage Classic (Video)

    Nothing says a Heritage Classic quite like hot Tim Horton’s coffees, frozen beers and a friendly nut-shot. During a second intermission performance by Metric, one fan’s over-exuberance became another fan’s golden opportunity.  With his friend’s arms raised in the air as he soaked in some facetime on the jumbotron (and CBC), the opening was there […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Bodie vs. Fraser — 2/16/11

    Troy Bodie and Mark Fraser have seen each other before in the minors as they hooked up for a pair of fights during the 2007 season while playing for the Springfield Falcons and the Lowell Devils, respectively.  They had the opportunity to go toe-to-toe once again last night.  The only difference was this time they […]

    They’re back! It has been quite a while since we last seen the Vancouver Canucks’ Green Guys tossing waffles into the air as the Toronto Maple Leafs’ Tim Brent served a 2-minute goaltender interference penalty.  On Saturday night during CBC’s Hockey Day In Canada, they made their triumphant return, this time breaking the indoor smoking […]

    Picture Of The Day: Legs Aren’t Supposed To Bend Like That

    Ouch! This is pretty much what it looked like the moment Keith Ballard’s healthy right knee turned into a sprained right knee that is expected to keep him out of the Vancouver Canucks’ lineup for three to four weeks.  During Monday night’s game against the Ottawa Senators, Ballard became the latest in a long line […]

    Isles Mikko Koskinen Makes Incredible Diving Save (Video)

    Hockey fans may remember Mikko Koskinen.  He is the New York Islanders fifth (?) string goaltender who was forced into action on Tuesday against the Toronto Maple Leafs after Kevin Poulin went down with an injury during warm-ups.  It was his first career NHL start and it would turn out to be a record-breaking performance, […]

    Picture Of The Day: My Face Hurts And I Don’t Know Why…

    That would be the face of Toronto Maple Leafs forward Darryl Boyce after a missed check sent him face first into a cut-out hole along the glass at the Air Canada Center during last week’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes.  Boyce left the ice immediately to seek medical attention after his nose appeared to be […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Dorsett vs. Lovejoy — 2/8/11

    Saved by the official.  That was how Derek Dorsett must have felt following a fight with Ben Lovejoy last night.  After delivering a flurry of punches to the face of the Penguins’ enforcer, Dorsett found himself with a jersey over his head.  Unable to see, the Blue Jackets’ tough guy was about to endure a […]
