    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Sarich vs. Bickell — 12/18/11

    With his team trailing by a score of 3-0 early in the third period of last night’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks, Calgary Flames defenseman Cory Sarich was looking to give his club some momentum by laying out Hawks forward Bryan Bickell with a bit open-ice check.  Seeing as how the Flames eventually lost by […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 11/23/11 — Antti Niemi

    Approximately 18 months ago, goaltender Antti Niemi was providing Chicago Blackhawk fans with a great deal of happiness after he helped lead their team to a Stanley Cup title.  Last night he was providing Blackhawks fans and players with plenty of frustration, shutting his former team out as a member of the San Jose Sharks. […]

    13 Worst Team Owners In The History Of Pro Sports

    Determining the worst team owners in the history of pro sports is no easy task. There are a surprisingly large number of people out there who managed to become extremely rich despite not having a clue about how to run a successful business. Nevertheless, I’ve managed to cut the list down to the worst 13. […]

    9 Best 3rd Jerseys In The NHL

    For NHL teams, third jerseys are huge cash cows. That’s because gullible hockey fans (like myself) will go out and buy the third jersey replicas the day they are released, even though they already own their teams’ “regular” jerseys. On top of that, historic franchises (like the Rangers or Maple Leafs) can change up these […]

    Jonathan Toews Runs A Kid Over At Hockey Camp (Video)

    Many minor hockey leagues in Canada have decided to introduce checking to the sport at an early age.  Jonathan Toews decided to do the same during his Canadian Tire hockey camp, as he laid a devastating open ice check on a tyke who clearly hadn’t learned to keep his head up yet. The young recipient […]

    Cameras caught Jonathan Toews at the Cubs game on Sunday, and he brought a friend.  No, that friend was not linemate Patrick Kane.  It was his girlfriend, Gabrielle Velasquez. Although Towes and Velasquez did get some camera time, we were left unsatisfied and wanting to see more of the Blackhawks captain’s blonde bombshell.  Now we […]

  • Vancouver Fans Celebrate In The Streets Following Game 7 Victory (Video)

    Vancouver Fans Celebrate In The Streets Following Game 7 Victory (Video)

    In Vancouver they celebrate first round victories like most other National Hockey League cities would celebrate Stanley Cup victories.  Last night the Canucks just so happened to get themselves a first round victory, and that meant it was time to start dancing in the streets of downtown Vancouver. I are almost certain the green guys […]

    Picture Of The Day: F U Partick Kane!

    After Jonathan Toews tied the game with less than two minutes left in regulation during Game 7 last night, it appeared as though Patrick Kane would once again be giving a big “F U” to the fans in Vancouver.  Thanks to Alex Burrows‘ overtime heroics, the opposite would end up happening, as the Blackhawks were […]

    Canucks Win! Green Guys Celebrate With Vince Vaughan (Video)

    It seemed only appropriate that the roller coaster ride of a series between the Vancouver Canucks and the Chicago Blackhawks ended in dramatic fashion with a Game 7 overtime game-winning goal off the stick of Alex Burrows.  Especially after the Canucks winger blew an opportunity to seal the victory with a penalty shot in the […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/26/11 — Roberto Luongo

    We could have given this honor to the Canadiens’ Carey Price, whose 31 save performance helped push their series to seven games.  Or we could have given it to Alex Burrows, who scored both Canucks goals last night.  Both players would have been worthy candidates of the “Stat Line of the Night,” but there was […]

    Blackhawks Fans Get Into It With Canucks Management (Video)

    When the NHL playoffs began, plenty of attention was placed on the series between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Vancouver Canucks.  These two teams share a well-publicized hatred for one another, but it appeared as though this year’s edition of their bitter rivalry would be short lived after the Canucks took a commanding 3-0 series […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/19/11 — Dave Bolland

    Facing a must-win situation, the Chicago Blackhawks welcomed Dave Bolland back to their line-up for the first time since he sustained a concussion six weeks ago.  His return would prove to be a triumphant one, as his incredible effort helped keep the Hawks’ season alive. Bolland made his mark on a series against the Canucks […]

    Your First NHL Playoff Fan Fight: Canucks vs. Blackhawks (Video)

    Last night the Vancouver Canucks took Game 1 of their opening round playoff series against the Chicago Blackhawks, but although they may have eared the important victory on the ice, their fans were busy losing the battle in the stands. Here is footage of what appears to be a disgruntled Blackhawks fan in a Jonathan […]
