    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 […]

    The Dallas Stars are fighting for a playoff spot, both figuratively and literally.  That was certainly the case last night when they hosted the Vancouver Canucks, and while they would go on to lose the battle on the scoreboard, Stars’ forward Jake Dowell was able to earn a win during his first period bout with […]

    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.

    Rapid City Rush Fan Breaks The Glass With His Hands (Video)

    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, […]

    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 […]

    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.

    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 […]
