  • Canada’s Patrice Cormier Lays a Vicious Elbow on Anton Rodin

    Canada’s Patrice Cormier Lays a Vicious Elbow on Anton Rodin

    Line changes are pretty routine in hockey.  Most or all of the players skate off quickly while a new unit comes on the ice, right?  Well not in this game between Sweden and Canada.  Canada was up 4-0 about halfway through the 2nd period when Patrice Cormier laid a huge elbow into Anton Rodin‘s face.  […]

  • Islanders Nate Thompson Whiffs on Empty Net (Video)

    Islanders Nate Thompson Whiffs on Empty Net (Video)

    More than one person should be embarrassed by this little clip.  During the Islanders-Rangers game last night, the Rangers got the best of the Islanders 5-2.  The highlight (or lowlight if you will) of the game was not a made goal, but instead this huge slip-up by Nate Thompson of the Islanders.  We have seen […]

    Hockey Player Kills Bat During Game (Video)

    Bats just can’t win for losing these days.  It seems like anytime they wander onto a sports field and interrupt play, the players and officials kill them and remove them so play can continue.  Wait, what?  You don’t see what the big deal is?  Well neither do I, but PETA had a hissy fit when […]

    It can be tough finding a way to beat last year’s Ontario Hockey League and Memorial Cup champions, the Windsor Spitfires.  St. Michaels Majors forward William Wallen thought he had the answer as he pulled something out from his bag of tricks Friday night. With the game tied at 2-2 after regulation and five minutes […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 12/15/09 – Jordan Staal

    It is no secret that the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Philadelphia Flyers do not like each other.  The two  inner-state rivals have met in the playoffs each of the past two years and it has been the Pens coming out on top both times.  The Flyers were looking to exact some revenge last night in […]

    Swedish Hockey Referee Performs CPR, Saves Player’s Life

    It is easy to portray officials of any sport as the enemy, and hockey refs are no exception.  When they call a good clean game without any problems, everyone seems to think “well they should because that is their job.”  And in those cases when they happen to make a few blown calls, players, coaches […]

    Those of us familiar with the events surrounding the North American sporting world have witnessed the desire for some professional athletes to “make it rain” over the past year or so.  On Friday night, the fans of the Ontario Hockey League’s London Knights decided to follow suit, but they substituted dollar bills with teddy bears, […]

    Ryan Miller Hits Photographer in Face With Puck (Video)

    This shot was one in a million.  Ryan Miller, the goalie for the Buffalo Sabres, doesn’t get the opportunity to really work on his pinpoint accuracy that often.  He’s a goalie, so obviously his focus is more on stopping the puck and clearing it then anything else.  In fact, when it comes to Ryan Miller, […]

    High School Girl Fights In Boys Hockey Game (Video)

    If you were under the mistaken impression that girls were not as tough as boys, this video should help put that misconception to rest.  She is not the first girl to defend herself on the ice, and she won’t be the last.  Hockey is generally a very physical sport, and this girl had to know […]

    Keith Ballard Viciously Slashes Tomas Vokoun Over The Head (Video)

    Everyone has their own way of letting out frustration.  When it comes to sports, it may often be released against the opposition, or maybe even on the officials.  Rarely does frustration result in teammate-on-teammate violence, but that was the case Monday night in Atlanta, and the result was a terrifying one for Toman Vokoun and […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 11/23/09 – Dwayne Roloson

    Last night at the Air Canada Center in Toronto, two last place teams in their respective divisions hooked up in a game that may have meant very little to those not playing in it, but it seemed to have meant the world to the men on the ice.  At least, they certainly played that way, […]
