    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)

    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 […]

    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, […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/29/10 – Rick DiPietro

    There were some pretty terrific individual performances coming from the two major sports leagues that were active last night.  The Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade put up an impressive 45 points and 7 rebounds in a win against the Rockets, while Memphis’ Zach Randolph recorded 35 points and 17 rebounds in a losing cause.  And then […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Boogaard vs. Gillies – 12/2/10

    Derek “The Bogeyman” Boogaard has haunted the dreams of several NHL enforcers, and Trevor Gillies may have just added his name to that list. These two combatants dropped their mitts during last night’s game between the New York Rangers and the New York Islanders, and while Gillies did manage to hang in there against the […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Prust vs. Konopka – 10/11/10

    During the pre-game warm-up prior to yesterday’s matinee game between the New York Islanders and the New York Rangers, Isles’ enforcer Zenon Konopka was spotted at center jawing at several Rangers players, including super-pest Sean Avery. Konopka’s invitation to exchange punches was just one of a few offers Avery would turn down yesterday afternoon, but […]

    Habs’ Mike Cammalleri Hacks Away At Nino Niederreiter (Video)

    During the 2010 NHL playoffs, Mike Cammalleri’s precision with his hockey stick around the net rivaled that of a surgeon operating with his cutting knife.  And as the NHL wrapped up pre-season play over the weekend, Cammalleri was once again showing off his skills with his stick, but rather than doing so by scoring some […]

    Islander Fan’s ‘Hockey Hole-In-One’ Earns Him A Car

    There was Mike Mann, standing at the blue line overlooking the 114-feet of ice that stood between himself and a brand new car.  All the Huntington, New York native needed to do was deliver the puck across that distance and through a five inch hole waiting in front of the opposite net. I should also […]
