    15 Best Stanley Cup Champion Rings

    As I watched the Philadelphia Flyers finish off the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday to close out that bizarre, violent, high-scoring playoff series, one of the first thoughts to pop into my head was, “well, I guess Sid and Evgeni won’t be getting new rings this year. Normally I don’t even think of championship rings when […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Lucic vs. Komisarek — 3/19/12

    Dating back to Mike Komisarek’s days with the Montreal Canadiens, he and Milan Lucic of the Boston Bruins have had their fair share of face-to-face encounters.  Now a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Komisarek still gets to see the Bruins and Lucic on a regular basis (as long as he doesn’t find himself watching […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Cowen vs. Nokelainen — 3/14/12

    The Montreal Canadiens’ Petteri Nokelainen doesn’t do much fighting on the ice, and we now know why after watching him take a flurry of uppercuts during a bout with the Ottawa Senators’ Jared Cowen last night. When the two combatants dropped their gloves during the latter stages of the opening period, it appeared as though […]

    Canadiens’ Erik Cole High-Fives Referee After Goal (Video)

    Heading into last night’s game against the Ottawa Senators, the Montreal Canadiens’ Erik Cole had celebrated 26 goals on the season.  After slipping a rebound past Sens goalie Ben Bishop in the opening period, he celebrated his 27th goal of the season in a slightly different manner than his previous 26, as he high-fived the […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Brown vs. Staubitz — 3/3/12

    Despite the fact that both teams are sitting near the bottom of the NHL’s standings, the rivalry between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens is as fierce as ever.  That was evident during Saturday night’s game between the two clubs, as a hit by the Canadiens’s Brad Staubitz on Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf […]

    In an earlier post on Devin Setoguchi’s comical shootout failure from last night, I happened to mention that for once, “it wasn’t the Habs embarrassing themselves.”  Truth be told, that statement isn’t entirely true.  Sure, the Canadiens weren’t the most embarrassing team on the ice during last night’s game against the Minnesota Wild, but it […]

    Devin Setoguchi Blows A Tire During Shootout FAIL! (Video)

    Being friends with several fans of the Montreal Canadiens, I have been afforded the privilege of watching that inept team embarrass themselves on the ice game in and game out this season.  It has been quite entertaining at times, however, in a rather unusual turn of events, it wasn’t the Habs embarrassing themselves last night.  […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Staubitz vs. Labrie — 2/28/12

    With no wins in their last five game and just one win in their last eight, nothing seems to be able to motivate the Montreal Canadiens players these days.  Not even an inspirational fight, like the one Brad Staubitz provided them with when he laid a beating on Pierre-Cedric Labrie during last night’s game against […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — White vs. Gudbranson — 2/26/12

    With both the Montreal Canadiens and the Florida Panthers making a desperate push for the playoffs down the stretch, neither team was willing to give their opponent an inch when they met in Miami yesterday afternoon.  As a result, a rather feisty affair unfolded on the ice at the BankAtlantic Center. While there was certainly […]

    15 Most Impressive Streaks In NHL History

    Tonight the Detroit Red Wings take on the Nashville Predators at Joe Louis Arena, where the Preds will try to do something no team has been able to do since November 3, 2011: beat the Wings at home. In fact, this past Tuesday, when Detroit beat the Dallas Stars 3-1, they extended their home winning […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — McQuaid vs. White — 2/15/12

    Despite sitting at opposite ends of the Eastern Conference standings, the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens appear to hate each other as much as ever.  That has been evident throughout the 2011-12 NHL season, as the two teams, and their fans, have engaged in several altercations already.  They added another to their long list […]

  • Bruins’ Brad Marchand Goes Knee-Hunting Again (Video)

    Bruins’ Brad Marchand Goes Knee-Hunting Again (Video)

    Brad Marchand is listed at just 5’9″, which is awfully small for an NHL player.  But at times it doesn’t appear to be small enough for his liking, as the Bruins’ super-pest has often displayed a knack for going low during checks in an effort to take out the knees of his opponents. Daniel Sedin […]
