    Here’s a Crazy Avs-Wild Fan Brawl Involving Dudes and Chicks (Video)

    The Minnesota Wild have been one of the hottest teams in the NHL as of late (13 wins in their last 16 games), while the Colorado Avalanche had endured a disappointing season after finishing in first place in the Central Division just one year ago.  That probably had the Avs fans already on tilt heading into […]

    Last night in Boston, the Colorado Avalanche defeated the Boston Bruins 2-1 thanks to a Daniel Briere buzzer beater. Of course, when you hear the term “buzzer beater,” you automatically think basketball, a sport in which they are a lot more common. But under the right circumstances you can have buzzer beaters in hockey, too. […]

    The Oilers’ Taylor Hall Scores a “Bra Trick”

    I never thought about it before, but the tradition of throwing your hat onto the ice after a player on the team you’re rooting for scores three goals in a hockey game is kind of outmoded, since people don’t really wear hats all that often anymore. But one woman at Thursday night’s game between the […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 10/21/2013 — J.S. Giguere

    The Pittsburgh Penguins entered last night’s contest against the Colorado Avalanche with the second-most goals scored per game in the entire NHL (3.75), and they also had the league’s leading scorer in Sidney Crosby.  You’d think there would be no stopping their offensive attack, but Avs keeper Jean-Sebastien Giguere had other ideas. Taking on one […]

    If you’re a hockey fan, then you probably heard a lot of pundits saying we should expect some pretty sloppy hockey to start the 2013 NHL season. They said that with the extended lockout and the six-day training camps, there was no way teams would start out as well-oiled machines. Of course, this line of […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Olver vs. Booth — 3/28/12

    When David Booth of the Vancouver Canucks and Mark Olver of the Colorado Avalanche dropped the gloves during the first period of last night’s game, the Canucks’ Maxim Lapierre was quick to arrive on the scene, believing that Booth would need some back-up.  He was wrong. Booth looked awfully comfortable with his gloves off, especially […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — McLeod vs. Stoner — 2/2/12

    Throughout the opening 27 minutes of last night’s game between the Colorado Avalanche and the Minnesota Wild, Cody McLeod made it know that he would do everything he could to get in the head and/or under the skin of the Wild players.  Finally, Clayton Stoner had heard enough of McLeod’s trash-talking, so he decided to […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — McLeod vs. Chipchura — 1/16/12

    The Colorado Avalanche were dealt a beating at the hands of the Phoenix Coyotes yesterday afternoon, as Boyd Gordon and Shane Doan scored two goals each to give the Coyotes the 6-1 victory.  Luckily for Avs’ enforcer Cody McLeod, he was able to avoid withstanding a similar beating when he dropped the gloves with Kyle […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Barch vs. McLeod — 11/28/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Barch vs. McLeod — 11/28/11

    The first period bout between Krys Barch of the Dallas Stars and Cody McLeod of the Colorado Avalanche was a good one, but it could have been a whole lot better had Barch landed that wild haymaker he attempted to deliver with his left hand only seconds after both combatants dropped their gloves. Fortunately for […]
