  • The Green Guys Are Back, Smoking Pipes (Video)

    The Green Guys Are Back, Smoking Pipes (Video)

    They’re back! It has been quite a while since we last seen the Vancouver Canucks’ Green Guys tossing waffles into the air as the Toronto Maple Leafs’ Tim Brent served a 2-minute goaltender interference penalty.  On Saturday night during CBC’s Hockey Day In Canada, they made their triumphant return, this time breaking the indoor smoking […]

    Picture Of The Day: Legs Aren’t Supposed To Bend Like That

    Ouch! This is pretty much what it looked like the moment Keith Ballard’s healthy right knee turned into a sprained right knee that is expected to keep him out of the Vancouver Canucks’ lineup for three to four weeks.  During Monday night’s game against the Ottawa Senators, Ballard became the latest in a long line […]

    Isles Mikko Koskinen Makes Incredible Diving Save (Video)

    Hockey fans may remember Mikko Koskinen.  He is the New York Islanders fifth (?) string goaltender who was forced into action on Tuesday against the Toronto Maple Leafs after Kevin Poulin went down with an injury during warm-ups.  It was his first career NHL start and it would turn out to be a record-breaking performance, […]

    Picture Of The Day: My Face Hurts And I Don’t Know Why…

    That would be the face of Toronto Maple Leafs forward Darryl Boyce after a missed check sent him face first into a cut-out hole along the glass at the Air Canada Center during last week’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes.  Boyce left the ice immediately to seek medical attention after his nose appeared to be […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/8/11 — Drew Stafford

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/8/11 — Drew Stafford

    Heading into the third period trailing the Tampa Bay Lightning by a goal on the road, few gave the Buffalo Sabres a realistic shot at completing the comeback against the Eastern Conference’s second place team.  Those who counted them out, however, couldn’t have been more surprised with what they would witness next. The Sabres were […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/7/11 — Mikael Samuelsson

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/7/11 — Mikael Samuelsson

    After an outstanding playoff run last year that saw him record 15 points in 12 games, Mikael Samuelsson has had a difficult time duplicating that production this season.  It is almost as if he has been on a season-long slump, but he finally appears to be breaking out of it as he entered last night’s […]

  • Sergei Kostitsyn Scores With A One-Handed Roof-Job (Video)

    Sergei Kostitsyn Scores With A One-Handed Roof-Job (Video)

    The Nashville Predators’ Sergei Kostitsyn brought a whole new meaning to the term “short-handed goal” Saturday night during a game against the Detroit Red Wings. Leading 1-0 late in the second period, Kostitsyn’s team was short-handed and so was he, as he was sent in on a breakaway but could only manage to get one […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Stars vs. Bruins – 2/2/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Stars vs. Bruins – 2/2/11

    How could we not come back to the game between the Boston Bruins and the Dallas Stars to award our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Thursday, February 3, 2011?  It looks like this honor will have to be split between eight combatants as Steve Ott, Krys Barch, Brian Sutherby and Adam Burish of […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Rupp vs. Konopka — 2/2/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Rupp vs. Konopka — 2/2/11

    In most cases we would present you with the bout between goaltenders Brent Johnson and Rick DiPietro as our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night,” but because it only lasted one punch and we already brought it to you earlier today, we will award this honor to the other scrap that took place during last […]
