    9 Worst Places To Watch An NHL Game

    With the NHL season at its midway point, it is a good time to step back and take stock of what we’ve seen so far. And while a lot of pundits have focused their mid-season reviews on the top plays, how teams have performed (who are the big surprises?), and the state of the game […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Kassian vs. Martin — 11/29/11

    Things got testy between the New York Islanders and the Buffalo Sabres last night, as a questionable hit by Nino Niederreiter on Nathan Gerbe along the benches caused play to stop as players from both teams gathered to discuss matters. And while Niederreiter, Gerbe and several others engaged in a meaningless shoving match, Matt Martin […]

    Boston Bruins left wing Daniel Paille made a strong case for mandatory visors last night. Without his visor, he might very well have been killed. Check the video for brutal footage of Paille taking a hard New York Islanders’ slapshot right in the face, and wait for the debate about visors to heat up again […]

    Another Look At Sean Avery’s Dirty Hit-From-Behind (Video)

    When it comes to cheapshots, the resume of Sean Avery is a rather long one, and he was busy adding to his extensive list of questionable acts last night during a game against the New York Islanders. Less than three minutes into the game, Avery lined up the Michael Haley along the boards and drilled […]

    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 — 2/21/11 — Matt Moulson

    The New Jersey Devils are not the only bottom-feeding team using a hot streak to make one final push for the playoffs.  Surprisingly, the New York Islanders have put together quite the run of their own in February, as they entered yesterday afternoon’s game against the Florida Panthers having won seven of their ten games […]

    Hockey fans may remember Mikko Koskinen.  He is the New York Islanders fifth (?) string goaltender who was forced into action on Tuesday against the Toronto Maple Leafs after Kevin Poulin went down with an injury during warm-ups.  It was his first career NHL start and it would turn out to be a record-breaking performance, […]

    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)

    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 […]

    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 […]

    NHL Referee Goes Through Puberty Right Before Our Eyes (Video)

    NHL referee Chris Rooney may be 35-years-old, but during last night’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the New York Islanders, he took a trip back in time to somewhere around the year 1991, when he was a young teenager just hitting puberty. Unfortunately for Chris, the two teams and approximately 4976 fans in attendance, […]
