    No Brotherly Love Here: Eric Staal Crushes Brother Marc (Video)

    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

    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 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 […]

    Picture Of The Day: Is Your Mask Looking At Me?

    Before you begin to believe that Carey Price is as creepy as the mask he was wearing during yesterday’s NHL Heritage Classic, we should inform you that the design by artist David Arrigo, which featured the look of an old-school goalie mask with eyes on the top and a mouth on the bottom, was a […]

    Check Out This Nut-Shot From The Heritage Classic (Video)

    Nothing says a Heritage Classic quite like hot Tim Horton’s coffees, frozen beers and a friendly nut-shot. During a second intermission performance by Metric, one fan’s over-exuberance became another fan’s golden opportunity.  With his friend’s arms raised in the air as he soaked in some facetime on the jumbotron (and CBC), the opening was there […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Bodie vs. Fraser — 2/16/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Bodie vs. Fraser — 2/16/11

    Troy Bodie and Mark Fraser have seen each other before in the minors as they hooked up for a pair of fights during the 2007 season while playing for the Springfield Falcons and the Lowell Devils, respectively.  They had the opportunity to go toe-to-toe once again last night.  The only difference was this time they […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/16/11 — Alexander Semin

    Midway through the third period of last night’s game between the Washington Capitals and the Anaheim Ducks, it appeared as though “The Stat Line of the Night” would come down to a choice between two Ducks players; Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry.  Both players had recorded one goal and three assists each, and their team […]

  • The Green Guys Are Back, Smoking Pipes (Video)

    The Green Guys Are Back, Smoking Pipes (Video)

    They’re back! It has been quite a while since we last seen the Vancouver Canucks’ Green Guys tossing waffles into the air as the Toronto Maple Leafs’ Tim Brent served a 2-minute goaltender interference penalty.  On Saturday night during CBC’s Hockey Day In Canada, they made their triumphant return, this time breaking the indoor smoking […]

    Picture Of The Day: Legs Aren’t Supposed To Bend Like That

    Ouch! This is pretty much what it looked like the moment Keith Ballard’s healthy right knee turned into a sprained right knee that is expected to keep him out of the Vancouver Canucks’ lineup for three to four weeks.  During Monday night’s game against the Ottawa Senators, Ballard became the latest in a long line […]

    Isles Mikko Koskinen Makes Incredible Diving Save (Video)

    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, […]
