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

    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)

    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 […]

  • Craig Adams Hits A Hockey Hole-In-One (Video)

    Craig Adams Hits A Hockey Hole-In-One (Video)

    If there were ever such thing as a hockey hole-in-one, it would probably look a little something like what took place following a shot off the stick of Craig Adams last night. With the Pittsburgh Penguins leading the New York Islanders by a score of 2-0 late in the second period, the Pens appeared to […]

  • Goalie Fight! Pens’ Brent Johnson KO’s Isles’ Rick DiPietro (Video)

    Goalie Fight! Pens’ Brent Johnson KO’s Isles’ Rick DiPietro (Video)

    Last night was just one of those nights where it seemed as though nothing was going right for the New York Islanders. In Pittsburgh to take on the Penguins, the Isles found themselves getting out-hit and out-played throughout the first 59 minutes of the game, and when Rick DiPietro attempted to salvage some dignity for […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 2/2/11 – Johan Franzen

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 2/2/11 – Johan Franzen

    If ever there was a good game for Johan Franzen to break out into one of his patented scoring sprees, last night’s was it.  His Detroit Red Wings were on the road visiting the slumping Ottawa Senators, who have had trouble scoring in recent games, but they erupted for five goals against the Wings’ Jimmy […]

    Pens’ Jordan Staal Sucker Punches Rangers’ Brandon Prust (Video)

    After watching his brothers, Eric and Marc, play together on the same team at the All-Star Game this past weekend, Jordan Staal may have felt somewhat neglected.  Perhaps he was thinking that the whole league would forget about the third Staal brother playing in the NHL, so he decided to do something that would get […]

  • AHL Defenseman Sean Sullivan Delivers The Perfect Hip Check (Video)

    AHL Defenseman Sean Sullivan Delivers The Perfect Hip Check (Video)

    When Los Angeles Kings defenseman Rob Scuderi sent Columbus Blue Jackets forward Jason Chimera soaring head over heals with a hip check a few years back, we had some trouble determining whether the hit was clean or dirty.  Did Scuderi go to low?  Should Chimera have been prepared to endure such a check?  It was […]
