    Do You Love Your Team This Much? (Video)

    When it comes to hockey fans, they don’t get much bigger than the ones found in Canada.  Such a statement is tough to argue with, but the fans of Djurgården are giving us reason to believe that perhaps we should not be so quick to overlook the fans in Sweden. During a recent Swedish Elite […]

    Okay, so those aren’t actually Orcs celebrating an IIHF World Junior Championship gold medal.  That would actually be Team Russia, as they were busy celebrating a 5-3 victory over Canada Wednesday night after trailing 3-0 heading into the third period. Although they may not be Orcs, some of the Russian players do bear a striking […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 1/6/11 – Danny Briere

    Locked in a tight battle with the Pittsburgh Penguins for top spot in both the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference, the Philadelphia Flyers were in need of a victory in order to remain a single point behind their inner-state rivals.  Playing in New Jersey against a Devils team that had only won six of […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Prust vs. Brodie — 1/5/11

    Despite an outstanding performance from two of the NHL’s toughest heavyweights, Wade Belak and George Parros, taking place last night, we simply couldn’t overlook this tremendous bout between the Carolina Hurricanes’ Troy Brodie and the New York Rangers’ Brandon Prust. Despite the incredible sized advantage in favor of Brodie, Prust was able to hang in […]

    Sidney Crosby’s Stick Catches Pucks Like A Glove (Video)

    In a previous post I referred to Sidney Crosby as somewhat of a magician on the ice as he used his stick like a magic wand to pick off a rolling puck along the edge of the boards. In this latest demonstration, Crosby’s stick acts more like a glove, rather than a wand, as he […]

    Swedish Goalie’s Cheap Shot Leaves MODO Player Injured (Video)

    When it comes to cheap-shot artists and agitators, it appears as though the New York Rangers’ Sean Avery may have finally met his match.  Although, it may come as a surprise to hear that this second coming of the super-pest plays in the Swedish Elite League.  And it is even more surprising to hear that […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Janssen vs. Barch – 1/2/11

    What better way to start off the new year than with an early candidate for “Fight of the Year.”  And when we say “Fight of the Year”, we are not only talking about hockey.  Instead, we are referring to just about every fist-throwing sport you can imagine, including mixed martial arts, boxing, and even kickboxing. […]

    A Progressive Look At Ben Lovejoy’s Battered Face (Pic + Vid)

    Those who watched episode three of HBO’s 24/7: Road to the Winter Classic last night were treated to one of the most grueling parts of the game of hockey: the dreaded facial injury. Most players opt for limited facial protection, but even those who wear visors covering half of their face are still susceptible to […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/29/10 – Rick DiPietro

    There were some pretty terrific individual performances coming from the two major sports leagues that were active last night.  The Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade put up an impressive 45 points and 7 rebounds in a win against the Rockets, while Memphis’ Zach Randolph recorded 35 points and 17 rebounds in a losing cause.  And then […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Scott vs. Jansen – 12/28/10

    The St. Louis Blues and the Chicago Blackhawks hooked up for the fourth time this season last night and that gave enforcers Cam Jansen and John Scott the opportunity to renew acquaintances.  These two combatants exchanged punches during a fight-filled affair back on November 3oth, and although this game did not share the same level […]

    Anze Kopitar Delivers An Alley-Oop Hockey Pass (Video)

    Basketball’s version of the alley-oop pass is quite impressive, but it has become such a common occurrence on the hard-court that it simply does not receive the same type of attention that it once did.  As for hockey’s version of the alley-oop pass, it is so rare that when the Los Angeles Kings’ Anze Kopitar […]

    ECHL Brawl Highlighted By Goalie Fight (Video)

    There has certainly been no shortage of brawls throughout the past week.  It all started with an National Lacrosse League pre-season brawl between the Buffalo Bandits and the Toronto Rock.  That was followed by a post-game scuffle between the Miami Caliente and the Tampa Breeze of the Lingerie Football League.  And finally, we were treated […]
