    Carey Price Was On, Cam Ward Was Not Last Night (Videos)

    During last night’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre, we saw a tale of two goaltenders who were having themselves two very different nights. On the one hand, there was Canes’ starting goaltender, Cam Ward, who did manage to make 23 saves on the evening, but there were […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/24/2013 — Eric Staal

    After acquiring Jordan Staal and Alexander Semin in the offseason, a lot was expected from the Carolina Hurricanes heading into the lockout-shortened 2013 NHL season.  But after dropping their first two games, they were looking to get into the win column against the previously unbeaten Buffalo Sabres, and they would do so thanks to a […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Dwyer vs. Machacek — 3/18/12

    If you are a fan of on-ice beatings, you will certainly be a fan of this bout, which features the Winnipeg Jets’ Spencer Machacek and the Carolina Hurricanes’ Patrick Dwyer. Machacek was taking part in just his first NHL bout, and he made quite the impression as he pummeled Dwyer with fists from all angles […]

    Check Out Tim Brent’s Awkward Premature Celebration (Video)

    There are actually two great parts about this clip. The first is Tim Brent’s celebration following what he believed to be a goal during last night’s game against the St. Louis Blues.  After hitting the post on a breakaway, the Hurricanes’ center was eager to celebrate what he thought was a goal, but this wasn’t […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 3/14/12 — Cam Ward

    Having won nine of their previous eleven games heading into last night’s contest, it almost seemed as though it would take a superhuman effort from the Canes in order for them to escape with the victory.  Luckily for Carolina, they would get the superhuman effort they needed from their goaltender, Cam Ward. The Blues may […]

    Canadian National Anthem Botched At Sabres Game (Video)

    The Canadian national anthem is rarely performed at hockey games that do not involve Canadian teams, and perhaps they should keep it that way following this debacle by the anthem singer during last night’s game between the Buffalo Sabres and the Carolina Hurricanes at the First Niagara Center. Her error (It’s supposed to be “From […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Brouwer vs. Faulk — 2/20/12

    The Washington Capitals didn’t put up much of a fight on the scoreboard during last night’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes, as they were thrashed by a score of 5-0.  And while most of the Caps players showed that they were unwilling to put up a fight throughout the entire 60 minutes of that game, […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Gleason vs. Engelland — 1/17/12

    Last night’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Pittsburgh Penguins treated us to one of the best fights of the 2011-12 NHL season, and a strong candidate for “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Year.”  And we nearly missed it all, as the game cut to a commercial seconds before Tim Gleason and Deryk Engelland […]

    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 […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 3/15/11 — Cam Ward

    Sitting four points out of a playoff spot, the Carolina Hurricanes were confronted with the biggest game of their season last night as they traveled to Buffalo to take on the eighth-place Sabres.  It was what hockey experts, players and fans alike often refer to as a “four-point game,” and in this case the Canes […]

    No Brotherly Love Here: Eric Staal Crushes Brother Marc (Video)

    While growing up under the same roof in Thunder Bay, Ontario, there were likely several occasions that saw Eric Staal get physical with his younger brother Marc while playing hockey out on the pond.  That is what brothers do.  They dish out punishment on one another, but they do it out of love. Last night, […]

    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 […]
