    Pens’ Jordan Staal Sucker Punches Rangers’ Brandon Prust (Video)

    After watching his brothers, Eric and Marc, play together on the same team at the All-Star Game this past weekend, Jordan Staal may have felt somewhat neglected.  Perhaps he was thinking that the whole league would forget about the third Staal brother playing in the NHL, so he decided to do something that would get […]

    Linus Klasen Scores A Spectcular Spin-O-Rama Shootout Goal (Video)

    Now where was this move during the NHL All-Star Skills Competition? I simply don’t get it.  Every year the NHL seems to give their Breakaway Challenge a shot and every year the participants seem to disappoint us with their lack of creativity.  After all, how many times can we watch a player scoop the puck […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Down Goes Fraser — 1/26/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Down Goes Fraser — 1/26/11

    An honorable mention goes out to the Stars Krys Barch, who took on two Edmonton Oilers in two separate fights last night.  However, there is no way we could deny the Dallas Stars’ Matt Niskanen a spot on this edition of the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” after his assault on the face of […]

  • NHL Referee Goes Through Puberty Right Before Our Eyes (Video)

    NHL Referee Goes Through Puberty Right Before Our Eyes (Video)

    NHL referee Chris Rooney may be 35-years-old, but during last night’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the New York Islanders, he took a trip back in time to somewhere around the year 1991, when he was a young teenager just hitting puberty. Unfortunately for Chris, the two teams and approximately 4976 fans in attendance, […]

    Kamloops Blazers Bring Back The EA Sports NHL 94 Celebration (Video)

    It appears as though some members of the Western Hockey League’s Kamloops Blazers have been spending quite a bit of time during road trips playing EA Sports’ NHL 94.  And while they may have figured out that the wrap-around doesn’t quite work as well in real life as it does in the Super Nintendo classic, […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Asham vs. Konopka — 1/25/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Asham vs. Konopka — 1/25/11

    No Sidney Crosby.  No Evgeni Malkin.  And no goals through the first 48 minutes of this game.  Yes, it was quite the boring affair between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New York Islanders last night, but thankfully Arron Asham and Zenon Konopka were able to provide the fans in attendance at the Consol Energy Center […]

    Dion Phaneuf Makes It Two Crushing Hits In Two Days (Video)

    The Toronto Maple Leafs’ Dion Phaneuf has been sending quite the message during his team’s road trip down south, and the only thing more amazing that the magnitude of his hits has been the fact that he has been able to deliver them within the opening 30 seconds of each game. On Monday night in […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Clifford vs. Thornton — 1/24/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Clifford vs. Thornton — 1/24/11

    There was no shortage of great fights during last night’s NHL action, and while bouts between the Blues’ Cam Janssen and the Avs’ David Koci, and the Leafs’ Clarke MacArthur and the Canes Chad LaRose were quite entertaining, they simply couldn’t top the performance we received from the Los Angeles Kings’ Kyle Clifford and the […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Carcillo vs. Dowell — 1/23/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Carcillo vs. Dowell — 1/23/11

    It was the first time the Philadelphia Flyers and the Chicago Blackhawks met since Game Six of last season’s Stanley Cup Finals, and although there wasn’t a championship on the line this time around, there was certainly no love lost between these two bitter rivals.  That was evident through the first 40 minutes of action […]

    Pekka Rinne’s Stick Makes The Save Of The Year (Video)

    It isn’t all that shocking to see the stick of a goaltender make an incredible save.  After all, we have seen it plenty of times before in both the NHL and in the minor leagues.  However, none have been quite as impressive, or as lucky, as the one made by Pekka Rinne of the Nashville […]

  • Panthers’ Cory Stillman Scores With His Face (Video)

    Panthers’ Cory Stillman Scores With His Face (Video)

    Some hockey coaches will say “you should always use your head when out on the ice.”  Others will tell you that “a goal is a goal, no matter how ugly it is.”  I’m guessing Cory Stillman has heard both of these before, and after his first period goal Wednesday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets, […]
