  • The Oilers’ Taylor Hall Scores a “Bra Trick”

    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

    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 […]

    Avs’ Matt Duchene Scores a Goal From a Mile Offside (Video)

    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

    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

    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 […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Asham vs. McLeod — 11/15/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Asham vs. McLeod — 11/15/11

    An incredible goal from Matt Duchene wasn’t the only highlight to come from last night’s game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Colorado Avalanche.  Evgeni Malkin also provided an spectacular goal of his own, and enforcers Arron Asham and Cody McLeod gave us a spirited 20-second bout that featured plenty of devastating right hands. Duchene […]

    Matt Duchene Scored An Absolute Beauty (Video)

    Could this be an early “Goal of the Year” candidate?  Sorry Jamie Benn, but it has my vote! With only a few minutes remaining in the opening period and the Colorado Avalanche already leading 1-0, Matt Duchene took a pass from Paul Stastny, dragged the puck through his legs and found the back of the […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — McLeod vs. Dorsett — 10/12/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — McLeod vs. Dorsett — 10/12/11

    With only one fight taking place during yesterday’s slate of NHL games, we weren’t left with much of a choice for our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night,” but that didn’t matter, as the one fight that did take place was quite the doozy.  It was between Cody McLeod of the Colorado Avalanche and Derek […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Parros vs. Koci — 3/28/11

    Heading into last night’s game against the Colorado Avalanche, George Parros of the Anaheim Ducks ranked first in the National Hockey League with 23 fights this season.  His lead was a slim one, as both Jared Boll and Zenon Konopka trailed him by only one fight, however, Parros was able to increase his lead to […]
