    Scott Hartnell recorded a Gordie Howe hat-trick during the Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-3 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs, and he completed two-thirds of that hat-trick on a single play.

    The NHL All-Star Game may seem like a hostility-free affair between the best players in the league, but that isn’t always the case.  Take yesterday’s game, for example, as Team Alfredsson’s Scott Hartnell celebrated a Henrik Sedin goal by telling Team Chara’s Dion Phaneuf to “suck it.”  Thankfully, Hartnell was mic’d up for CBC’s broadcast […]

    Switzerland’s Simon Moser is not the first player to lose consciousness following a check from Dion Phaneuf.  However, he may very well be the first to lose consciousness a few minutes after the hit.
