  • Dancin’ Larry Was Bustin’ A Move At MSG Last Night (Video)

    Dancin’ Larry Was Bustin’ A Move At MSG Last Night (Video)

    I’ve always wondered where NHL arenas came up with the rule that prohibits the sale of alcohol following the start of the third period.  Apparently, former Rangers goaltender and current CBC ice-level commentator Glenn Healy has found the answer to that question, and his name is Dancin’ Larry. Dancin’ Larry was all revved up for […]

    Brandon Dubinsky Takes His Anger Out On A Gatorade Cooler (Video)

    During Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series between the New York Rangers and the Ottawa Senators, Brandon Dubinsky was incensed by the sight of teammate Brian Boyle taking a face full of punches from the Sens’ Matt Carkner.  That caused the Rangers’ forward to unleashed his anger on the face of Carkner with […]

    Fights And Cheap Shots Mar This Weekend’s NHL Playoff Action (Videos)

    For the past two years I have chosen to discontinue the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” segment during the NHL playoffs because as many of us already know, fights rarely, if ever, take place during the post-season.  However, that has been far from the case during the 2012 NHL playoffs.  In fact, all of […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Haley vs. Bickel — 3/11/12

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Haley vs. Bickel — 3/11/12

    Heading into Sunday’s game between the New York Islanders and the New York Rangers, Michael Haley and Stu Bickel had dropped the gloves with one another twice during their hockey careers (once in the AHL and once in the NHL during an earlier meeting this season).  They wasted little time completing the trilogy, as the […]

    A Donald Trump Sighting At MSG For Rangers-Devils (Video)

    I’m not quite sure if Donald Trump actually enjoys the game of hockey, or if he simply thought Jeremy Lin and the Knicks were in town, but somehow he ended up at Madison Square Gardens last night to watch the New York Rangers take on the New Jersey Devils.  Thankfully, he was treated to a […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 2/1/12 — Henrik Lundqvist

    Stat Line Of The Night — 2/1/12 — Henrik Lundqvist

    Few were probably happier to see the All-Star Game end than New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist.  During Sunday’s game he was beaten on three occasions in one period of play, with two of those goals coming off the stick of his teammate, Marian Gaborik.  But with Gaborik back on his team for last night’s […]

  • Stat Line Of The Night — 1/17/12 — Henrik Lundqvist

    Stat Line Of The Night — 1/17/12 — Henrik Lundqvist

    The New York Rangers have been having themselves an incredible season, as they entered last night’s game against the Nashville Predators tied with St. Louis and Chicago for first place in the entire NHL.  Sixty minutes later they found themselves alone at the top of the standings, thanks in large part to a stellar effort […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Janssen vs. Rupp — 12/20/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Janssen vs. Rupp — 12/20/11

    When Cam Janssen wasn’t busy chasing down members of the opposition and landing head-over-heels in his own bench during last night’s game between the New Jersey Devils and the New York Rangers, he was using his face to catch the fists of Rangers enforcer Michael Rupp. There were multiple enforcers from both teams on the […]

  • Tempers Flare Following Artem Anisimov’s Goal Celebration (Video)

    Tempers Flare Following Artem Anisimov’s Goal Celebration (Video)

    New York Rangers forward Artem Anisimov was guilty of letting his emotions get the better of him following a short-handed goal last night, and the Tampa Bay players were guilty of much of the same following Anisimov’s ensuing celebration. After handing the Rangers a 2-1 lead in the second period, Anisimov turned towards Lightning goaltender […]

  • Dion Phaneuf Delivers A Devastating Check On Mike Sauer (Video)

    Dion Phaneuf Delivers A Devastating Check On Mike Sauer (Video)

    Many NHLers will probably tell you that Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf is one of the hardest hitters in the game.  After being on the receiving end of one of Phaneuf’s monstrous checks, I’m almost certain that Mike Sauer would agree. With time running out in the third period of last night’s game between […]
