    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Simmonds vs. Martin — 3/15/12

    The New York Islanders were having a tough time holding their own on the scoreboard against the Philadelphia Flyers last night, as they found themselves trailing by a score of 3-0 before scoring two goals late in the third period.  However, they weren’t having the same problem in the fighting department, thanks to some fine […]

  • Check Out Tim Brent’s Awkward Premature Celebration (Video)

    Check Out Tim Brent’s Awkward Premature Celebration (Video)

    There are actually two great parts about this clip. The first is Tim Brent’s celebration following what he believed to be a goal during last night’s game against the St. Louis Blues.  After hitting the post on a breakaway, the Hurricanes’ center was eager to celebrate what he thought was a goal, but this wasn’t […]

  • This Day In Sports History (March 16th) – Brittanie Cecil

    This Day In Sports History (March 16th) – Brittanie Cecil

    It was on this day in 2002 that 13-year-old Brittanie Cecil was struck in the head by a puck while attending a Columbus Blue Jackets game at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.  Brittanie died two days later of a torn vertebral artery, which resulted in severe clotting and swelling of the brain. It was the […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Cowen vs. Nokelainen — 3/14/12

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Cowen vs. Nokelainen — 3/14/12

    The Montreal Canadiens’ Petteri Nokelainen doesn’t do much fighting on the ice, and we now know why after watching him take a flurry of uppercuts during a bout with the Ottawa Senators’ Jared Cowen last night. When the two combatants dropped their gloves during the latter stages of the opening period, it appeared as though […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Haley vs. Bickel — 3/11/12

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Haley vs. Bickel — 3/11/12

    Heading into Sunday’s game between the New York Islanders and the New York Rangers, Michael Haley and Stu Bickel had dropped the gloves with one another twice during their hockey careers (once in the AHL and once in the NHL during an earlier meeting this season).  They wasted little time completing the trilogy, as the […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Shelley vs. Barch — 3/8/12

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Shelley vs. Barch — 3/8/12

    The Philadelphia Flyers may have won last night’s game against the Florida Panthers by a score of 5-0, but they certainly didn’t win the war. Two fights broke out during this game, and the Panthers’ enforcers were victorious in both of them.  One of the bouts was settled with a convincing blow by Florida’s Eric […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Thornton vs. Rosehill — 3/6/12

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Thornton vs. Rosehill — 3/6/12

    During what may have very well been the best night of Fisticuffs from the 2011-12 NHL season, last night’s action on the ice provided a total of nine fight.  At least half of those were worthy of some consideration for “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” honors, including Dennis Seidenberg vs. Colby Armstrong, Brandon Dubinsky […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Brown vs. Staubitz — 3/3/12

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Brown vs. Staubitz — 3/3/12

    Despite the fact that both teams are sitting near the bottom of the NHL’s standings, the rivalry between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens is as fierce as ever.  That was evident during Saturday night’s game between the two clubs, as a hit by the Canadiens’s Brad Staubitz on Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Thornton vs. Boulton — 3/1/12

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Thornton vs. Boulton — 3/1/12

    Two of the NHL’s toughest and best enforcers squared off at center ice inside the TD Gardens last night, as Shawn Thornton and Eric Boulton came to blows during a game between the Boston Bruins and the New Jersey Devils.  This type of altercation is certainly nothing new to these two combatants, who have combined […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night  — Beleskey vs. Tropp — 2/29/12

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Beleskey vs. Tropp — 2/29/12

    Last night’s game between the Buffalo Sabres and the Anaheim Ducks provided a total of four fights, and they all occurred within the final five minutes of the game.  However, the first altercation between Corey Tropp of the Sabres and Matt Beleskey of the Ducks was the only one that we can really consider to […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Staubitz vs. Labrie — 2/28/12

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Staubitz vs. Labrie — 2/28/12

    With no wins in their last five game and just one win in their last eight, nothing seems to be able to motivate the Montreal Canadiens players these days.  Not even an inspirational fight, like the one Brad Staubitz provided them with when he laid a beating on Pierre-Cedric Labrie during last night’s game against […]

    A Donald Trump Sighting At MSG For Rangers-Devils (Video)

    I’m not quite sure if Donald Trump actually enjoys the game of hockey, or if he simply thought Jeremy Lin and the Knicks were in town, but somehow he ended up at Madison Square Gardens last night to watch the New York Rangers take on the New Jersey Devils.  Thankfully, he was treated to a […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — White vs. Gudbranson — 2/26/12

    With both the Montreal Canadiens and the Florida Panthers making a desperate push for the playoffs down the stretch, neither team was willing to give their opponent an inch when they met in Miami yesterday afternoon.  As a result, a rather feisty affair unfolded on the ice at the BankAtlantic Center. While there was certainly […]
