    Picture Of The Day: Telestrator Dong?

    Could it be?  Is that what I think  it is?  It looks like a…. …a telestrator dong! Attempting to give us some insight regarding the Buffalo Sabres’ offensive zone play against the New York Rangers last night, the crew at VERSUS appeared to be a little too “excited” about the way the Sabres had been […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/28/11 — Jonathan Toews

    Despite winning the Stanley Cup last season, the Chicago Blackhawks entered last night’s game on the outside of the playoffs looking in.  However, a four-game winning streak helped them creep to within a point of the post-season.  Captain Jonathan Towes recorded three goals and three assists in those four games, and both he and his […]

    Most organizations came into today’s NHL trade deadline looking to improve some aspect of their team, whether it was scoring, defense or any other area.  As for the Boston Bruins, one area they didn’t need to improve on was team toughness.  The B’s already have a plethora of tough guys, including Shawn Thornton, Adam McQuaid […]

    Could this be yet another nominee for our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Year”? The Vancouver Canucks Tanner Glass and the St. Louis Blues B.J. Crombeen didn’t take long to exchange pleasantries last night when their teams hooked up for a meeting at Rogers Arena.  These two tough guys began throwing punches just over a […]

    It wasn’t all that long ago when everyone in Leaf Nation was voicing their displeasure with the direction of the team, throwing waffles on the ice, chanting “Fire Wilson”, and talking about how the Boston Bruins were going to have themselves another top 5 draft pick courtesy of the Phil Kessel trade. My, how quickly […]

    Here is more evidence of why hockey players may be some of the toughest athletes in the world.

    Times have been tough for the Colorado Avalanche, and the fans appear to be growing impatient.  After making the playoffs last season and coming close to upsetting the first-place Sharks, things have gone downhill from there for the Avs, who have recorded only one win in their past twelve games and currently sit 11 points […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/23/11 — Vincent Lecavalier

    The Phoenix Coyotes entered last night’s game in Tampa Bay riding an eight-game winning streak.  They left with a one-game losing streak, and it wasn’t a pretty loss either. The Lightning took advantage of a Phoenix team that appeared to be tired one night after earning a tough overtime victory in Philadelphia, as they cruised […]

    While growing up under the same roof in Thunder Bay, Ontario, there were likely several occasions that saw Eric Staal get physical with his younger brother Marc while playing hockey out on the pond.  That is what brothers do.  They dish out punishment on one another, but they do it out of love. Last night, […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Bradley vs. Craig — 2/21/11

    Revenge doesn’t always work out quite like it was originally planned.  The Pittsburgh Penguins’ Ryan Craig learned that the hard way last night during a game against the Washington Capitals.  After watching teammate Matt Cooke take a hard check along the boards midway through the second period from Matt Bradley, Craig attempted to exact some […]

    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 […]
