    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Dorsett vs. Clifford — 1/8/11

    Sunday provided us with little entertainment in terms of hockey fights, which forced us to turn to Saturday’s action in search of our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for the weekend.  That is where we found a rather exciting bout which took place between the Los Angeles Kings’ Kyle Clifford and the Columbus Blue […]

    Okay, so those aren’t actually Orcs celebrating an IIHF World Junior Championship gold medal.  That would actually be Team Russia, as they were busy celebrating a 5-3 victory over Canada Wednesday night after trailing 3-0 heading into the third period. Although they may not be Orcs, some of the Russian players do bear a striking […]

    There is little doubt that whether it is a break-away, penalty-shot or shootout, these one-on-one battles between player and goalie provide some of the most exciting moments a hockey game can offer.  Although, at times they can also provide some rather embarrassing, bloopers.  That may have been the case on Wednesday night thanks to Steven […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Prust vs. Brodie — 1/5/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Prust vs. Brodie — 1/5/11

    Despite an outstanding performance from two of the NHL’s toughest heavyweights, Wade Belak and George Parros, taking place last night, we simply couldn’t overlook this tremendous bout between the Carolina Hurricanes’ Troy Brodie and the New York Rangers’ Brandon Prust. Despite the incredible sized advantage in favor of Brodie, Prust was able to hang in […]

    Sidney Crosby’s Stick Catches Pucks Like A Glove (Video)

    In a previous post I referred to Sidney Crosby as somewhat of a magician on the ice as he used his stick like a magic wand to pick off a rolling puck along the edge of the boards. In this latest demonstration, Crosby’s stick acts more like a glove, rather than a wand, as he […]

    Steven Stamkos Gives Us Hockey’s Worst Penalty Shot FAIL Ever! (Video)

    When New Jersey Devils forward Ilya Kovalchuk whiffed on a shot during a shootout earlier in the season, many of us thought to ourselves, “How can a superstar of his caliber fail so miserably during a one-on-one with the goalie?”  Seemingly attempting to answer that question, Steven Stamkos stepped up to the forefront last night […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Downie vs. Hendricks – 1/4/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Downie vs. Hendricks – 1/4/11

    It wasn’t the best of bouts, but with only one fight taking place in the NHL last night, we had no choice but to make this scrap between the Tampa Bay Lightning’s Steve Downie and the Washington Capitals’ Matt Hendricks our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Tuesday, January 4, 2011. Had Hendricks been […]

    Swedish Goalie’s Cheap Shot Leaves MODO Player Injured (Video)

    When it comes to cheap-shot artists and agitators, it appears as though the New York Rangers’ Sean Avery may have finally met his match.  Although, it may come as a surprise to hear that this second coming of the super-pest plays in the Swedish Elite League.  And it is even more surprising to hear that […]

    Wild’s Stoner Scores A Pothead’s Goal (Video)

    With the game tied 1-1 just over a minute into the third period, a crazy carom off the glass on a simple dump-in was enough to fool New Jersey Devils goaltender Johan Hedberg and end up in the back of the net, giving the Minnesota Wild the 2-1 victory at the Prudential Center.  It seems […]

    Alex Ovechkin hasn’t been doing much scoring lately, but a lack of offensive production clearly hasn’t taken the spotlight off the Washington Capitals’ superstar forward.  Between the plethora of face-time he received during episode 2 of HBO’s 24/7: Road to the Winter Classic series, and his atomic wedgieing of a friend during a New Years […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Janssen vs. Barch – 1/2/11

    What better way to start off the new year than with an early candidate for “Fight of the Year.”  And when we say “Fight of the Year”, we are not only talking about hockey.  Instead, we are referring to just about every fist-throwing sport you can imagine, including mixed martial arts, boxing, and even kickboxing.
