    9 Storylines To Watch In The 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs

    After a long 82-game prelude, the NHL really gets down to business tonight when the puck drops at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh and the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs get under way. For hockey fans (except the sad folks who root for the Toronto Maple Leafs) this is the greatest time of the year, […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Lucic vs. Komisarek — 3/19/12

    Dating back to Mike Komisarek’s days with the Montreal Canadiens, he and Milan Lucic of the Boston Bruins have had their fair share of face-to-face encounters.  Now a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Komisarek still gets to see the Bruins and Lucic on a regular basis (as long as he doesn’t find himself watching […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 3/19/12 — Brian Rolston

    In terms of scoring, the 2011-12 NHL season hasn’t been a very productive one for Brian Rolston, as he entered last night’s game with just 13 points in 60 games.  He recorded his first multi-point game of the season during a two-point effort against the Florida Panthers last Thursday, and he would double that total […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Thornton vs. Rosehill — 3/6/12

    During what may have very well been the best night of Fisticuffs from the 2011-12 NHL season, last night’s action on the ice provided a total of nine fight.  At least half of those were worthy of some consideration for “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” honors, including Dennis Seidenberg vs. Colby Armstrong, Brandon Dubinsky […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Thornton vs. Boulton — 3/1/12

    Two of the NHL’s toughest and best enforcers squared off at center ice inside the TD Gardens last night, as Shawn Thornton and Eric Boulton came to blows during a game between the Boston Bruins and the New Jersey Devils.  This type of altercation is certainly nothing new to these two combatants, who have combined […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 2/28/12 — Robin Lehner

    After goaltender Craig Anderson went down with a lacerated right pinky finger, the Ottawa Senators were quick to pick up third-string goalie Ben Bishop from the St. Louis Blues in order to help them get through the next couple of weeks without their starter between the pipes.  Suddenly, it appears as though they may not […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — McQuaid vs. White — 2/15/12

    Despite sitting at opposite ends of the Eastern Conference standings, the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens appear to hate each other as much as ever.  That has been evident throughout the 2011-12 NHL season, as the two teams, and their fans, have engaged in several altercations already.  They added another to their long list […]

    Bruins’ Brad Marchand Goes Knee-Hunting Again (Video)

    Brad Marchand is listed at just 5’9″, which is awfully small for an NHL player.  But at times it doesn’t appear to be small enough for his liking, as the Bruins’ super-pest has often displayed a knack for going low during checks in an effort to take out the knees of his opponents. Daniel Sedin […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Lucic vs. Kaleta — 2/8/12

    The Boston Bruins and the Buffalo Sabres engaged in a physical affair last night that yielded a total of 90 penalty minutes and three fights.  The best bout of the evening took place just over 12 minutes into the first period, as the Patrick Kaleta was looking to get some additional retribution on the Bruins’ […]

    Want To See A Hockey Player Fly? (Video)

    Many people have used the saying “When pigs fly” to describe something that is virtually impossible.  Being a sports lover and die-hard hockey fan, I have often used the term “when hockey players fly” to describe the Toronto Maple Leafs chances at winning another Stanley Cup or Scott Gomez’s chances of scoring another goal (it […]
