    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)

    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 […]

  • Untimely Fall Results In Goal Post To The Groin For Linesman (Video)

    Untimely Fall Results In Goal Post To The Groin For Linesman (Video)

    It may not be quite as embarrassing as going through puberty in the midst of explaining a call to the fans in attendance during an NHL game, but falling to the ice and sliding groin first into the goal post is pretty damn close. I have always wondered if referees wear jock straps while officiating […]

    Kamloops Blazers Bring Back The EA Sports NHL 94 Celebration (Video)

    It appears as though some members of the Western Hockey League’s Kamloops Blazers have been spending quite a bit of time during road trips playing EA Sports’ NHL 94.  And while they may have figured out that the wrap-around doesn’t quite work as well in real life as it does in the Super Nintendo classic, […]

  • Dion Phaneuf Makes It Two Crushing Hits In Two Days (Video)

    Dion Phaneuf Makes It Two Crushing Hits In Two Days (Video)

    The Toronto Maple Leafs’ Dion Phaneuf has been sending quite the message during his team’s road trip down south, and the only thing more amazing that the magnitude of his hits has been the fact that he has been able to deliver them within the opening 30 seconds of each game. On Monday night in […]

    Life in The Beer League, Part 2: Later That Evening (Video)

    The greatest amateur four-minute look into the life of a beer league hockey player is back with an equally amazing sequel. The last time we checked in with this 40-year-old couple, they were engaged in an argument that touched on topics regarding the point of spending $500 on recreational hockey, and the importance of a […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 1/24/11 — Jonathan Quick

    After getting off to a hot start this season and finding themselves on top of the Western Conference standings, the Los Angeles Kings have cooled off considerably, dropping out of the playoffs.  Looking to creep back into the top eight, they had a tough tasks in front of them as the stingy Boston Bruins visited […]
