    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 […]

    Daniel Paille Gets A Puck In The Face (Video)

    Boston Bruins left wing Daniel Paille made a strong case for mandatory visors last night. Without his visor, he might very well have been killed. Check the video for brutal footage of Paille taking a hard New York Islanders’ slapshot right in the face, and wait for the debate about visors to heat up again […]

    After winning the second World Series title of his career, perhaps St. Louis Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter should consider taking a shot at wining a Stanley Cup next.  He took the first step towards doing just that yesterday, as Carpenter stepped on the ice and took part in a practice with the St. Louis Blues.

    The 9 Most Annoying Players In The NHL

    They’re not the worst guys in the NHL (though there might be a little overlap), and they’re not necessarily the best defenders, but their combination of energy, tenacity, and a general predilection towards disruption makes these entrants the pests of the league. So without further ado or ceremony, in tribute to Mr. Esa Tikkanen, let’s […]

    9 Most Badass Enforcers In NHL History

    It appears that the old-fashioned NHL enforcer may be an endangered species. With what we now know about the long-term danger of concussions, plus the recent rash of tragic deaths of NHL tough guys, there’s just no room in hockey anymore for guys whose only skill is beating other guys to a pulp. Some hockey […]

    9 Sexy Hockey Fans

    Chicks dig hockey. It’s a scientific fact that the NHL has more hot girls per capita than any other sport in North America (except college football). There just seems to be something about big athletic guys knocking each others’ teeth out that appeals to the female demographic. So if you’ve always been kind of interested […]

    Hockey season is upon us, and while many of us can’t wait to sit back and watch all 30 NHL teams beat up on each other in order to get their shot at raising the Stanley Cup above their heads eight months from now, some of you may be thinking about lacing up the skates […]

    13 NHL Careers Cut Short By Concussions

    The 2011-12 NHL season is only a month away, but people who follow the league aren’t talking about Stanley Cup contenders and pretenders, hot prospects, or big trade buzz. Instead, everyone is talking about concussions, and whether the best hockey player in the world, Sidney Crosby, will even play this year. There are even some […]

    Picture Of The Day: He Shoots…He Scores!

    A little while back, we showed you an awesome picture of a football goal post in a men’s urinal. I guess the idea was, every time guys use the urinal to take a leak, they can shout “it’s good!” Well, today we bring you the Canadian version: a urinal with a hockey goal in it. […]

    13 Most Awesome Old-School Sports Video Games

    The other day, as I was negotiating a trade between the New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals in the franchise mode of MLB 11 The Show for PlayStation 3, I made a very obvious realization: sports video games sure have come a long, long way. There I was in 2011, tending to every minute […]

    Hockey season may be months away, but the highlights on the ice somehow continue to roll in.  The latest one comes from Matt Harrington, a minor league hockey player from the Boston area who used some slick puck handling skills and incredible camerawork to give us this spectacular shootout maneuver.

    This Day In Sports History (July 21st) – Wayne Gretzky

    It was on this day in 1996 that Wayne Gretzky signed a two-year contract with the New York Rangers.  The signing reunited Gretzky with long-time Edmonton Oiler teammate Mark Messier. Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier spent nine very successful years together in Edmonton winning four Stanley Cups.  However, their reunion in New York was short-lived, […]
