    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Konopka vs. Staubitz — 3/2/11

    Having recorded more man-games lost due to injury than any other team in the league, the New York Islanders felt their opposition had been taking liberties on them for far too long.  As a result, they decided to fight back, beginning with their epic brawl-filled game against the Pittsburgh Penguins less than a month ago.  […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/28/11 — Jonathan Toews

    Despite winning the Stanley Cup last season, the Chicago Blackhawks entered last night’s game on the outside of the playoffs looking in.  However, a four-game winning streak helped them creep to within a point of the post-season.  Captain Jonathan Towes recorded three goals and three assists in those four games, and both he and his […]

    With the game tied 1-1 just over a minute into the third period, a crazy carom off the glass on a simple dump-in was enough to fool New Jersey Devils goaltender Johan Hedberg and end up in the back of the net, giving the Minnesota Wild the 2-1 victory at the Prudential Center.  It seems […]

    The Minnesota Wild’s Guillaume Latendresse may not be a goalie, but that didn’t stop him from making the save of the night during yesterday’s 3-2 shootout loss to the Los Angeles Kings.  Following some miscommunication by the Wild and a brutal giveaway by defenseman Greg Zanon, the Kings’ Ryan Smyth was left with an open […]

    Fighting in hockey is all well and good when two combatants looking to do battle in order to ignite their respective teams decide to drop the gloves.  However, there is little room in the league for meatheads who feel inclined to throw fists at an unwilling participant, whether it be a player standing behind a […]

    Shootout Fail Turns Into Great Goal (Video)

    I’m sure that Minnesota Wild forward Jarod Palmer would tell you that he’s been working on this move for quite some time now.  But most of us would say that he took a huge swing and a miss during a shootout at a scrimmage in the Wild’s summer development.  What do you think? I’d say […]
