    With the NHL season winding down, tensions seem to be especially high, and last night that resulted in a total of six fights.  A few of those, like James Neal vs. Andrew Ference, Michael Rupp vs. Jody Shelley and Matt Frattin vs. Marcus Foligno, were worthy of a spot on the “Frozn Fisticuffs Fight of […]

    If you want to throw kicks, you should have played soccer.

Not even close! Instead, “all hell breaking […]

    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.

    This Day In Sports History (March 23rd) – Wayne Gretzky

    It was on this day in 1994 that Wayne Gretzky scored his record breaking 802nd career NHL goal.  Gretzky surpassed his childhood hero Gordie Howe, whose record stood for almost 15 years.

    When the glass shatters during a hockey game, 99% of the time the impact causing it to crack comes from within the playing surface, whether it be via a 100-plus m.p.h. slapshot, or a bone-crushing body check.  As for the other 1%, that would account for the odd instance when a fan’s excitement allows him, […]
