    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 […]

    20 Hockey Fails (GIFs)

    Hockey is one of the fastest, hardest, high-octane sports you’ll see. When things go right out there on the ice, nothing is more exciting. But the converse of this reality is that there’s such a small margin of error, so when things go wrong it’s can be either really grizzly or freaking hilarious. And since […]

  • This Day In Sports History (February 16th) – NHL Lockout

    This Day In Sports History (February 16th) – NHL Lockout

    It was on this day in 2005 that NHL commissioner Gary Bettman officially canceled the 2004-05 season.  This would mark the first time that a major North American sport would cancel an entire season due to a labor dispute.  It would also be the first year that the Stanley Cup was not awarded since 1919. […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Parros vs. Kassian — 2/14/12

    As most of you already know, yesterday was Valentine’s Day.  So while lovers everywhere were busy exchanging gifts (among other things) in an effort to show their love for one another, George Parros of the Anaheim Ducks and Matt Kassian of the Minnesota Wild were busy exchanging punches in an effort to spark their respective […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Alberts vs. Jackman — 2/11/12

    Sitting only two points out of the playoffs entering the weekend, the Calgary Flames wanted to show everyone in the Western Conference that they are willing to fight, literally, in order to play meaningful hockey in April.  The Vancouver Canucks learned that first-hand on Saturday night when the Flames’ Tim Jackman dropped the gloves with […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — McLeod vs. Stoner — 2/2/12

    Throughout the opening 27 minutes of last night’s game between the Colorado Avalanche and the Minnesota Wild, Cody McLeod made it know that he would do everything he could to get in the head and/or under the skin of the Wild players.  Finally, Clayton Stoner had heard enough of McLeod’s trash-talking, so he decided to […]

  • This Day In Sports History (February 2nd) – Ian Turnbull

    This Day In Sports History (February 2nd) – Ian Turnbull

    It was on this day in 1977 that Toronto Maple Leafs’ defenseman Ian Turnbull scored five goals during a 9-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings.  To this day, his 5-goal performance still stands as a record for most goals in a game by an NHL defenseman. During the game, Turnbull only had five shots […]

    Scott Hartnell Tells Dion Phaneuf To “Suck It” (Video)

    The NHL All-Star Game may seem like a hostility-free affair between the best players in the league, but that isn’t always the case.  Take yesterday’s game, for example, as Team Alfredsson’s Scott Hartnell celebrated a Henrik Sedin goal by telling Team Chara’s Dion Phaneuf to “suck it.”  Thankfully, Hartnell was mic’d up for CBC’s broadcast […]

    15 Gnarly Hockey Faces

    The NHL is not a place for guys who take great pride in their good looks and impeccable bone structure. In fact, if you have reservations about suffering permanent facial disfigurement, you might want to think about taking up another sport. The Edmonton Oilers’ Taylor Hall certainly know what I’m talking about. Last week, the […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Giroux vs. Reese — 1/19/12

    Last night’s NHL action provided us with a total of six fights, and while none of them ranked high on the entertainment meter, one of them did feature one of the league’s top players.  It took place during a game between the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Islanders, as 50-point-man Claude Giroux dropped the […]
