    Picture Of The Day: My Face Hurts And I Don’t Know Why…

    That would be the face of Toronto Maple Leafs forward Darryl Boyce after a missed check sent him face first into a cut-out hole along the glass at the Air Canada Center during last week’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes.  Boyce left the ice immediately to seek medical attention after his nose appeared to be […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Dorsett vs. Lovejoy — 2/8/11

    Saved by the official.  That was how Derek Dorsett must have felt following a fight with Ben Lovejoy last night.  After delivering a flurry of punches to the face of the Penguins’ enforcer, Dorsett found himself with a jersey over his head.  Unable to see, the Blue Jackets’ tough guy was about to endure a […]

    Following a dirty knee from the Penguins’ Matt Cooke on the Capitals’ Alex Ovechkin during the final minutes of Sunday afternoon’s game, Caps’ coach Bruce Boudreau had this to say: “It’s Matt Cooke. Need we say more?” Boudreau said. “It’s not like it’s his first rodeo. He’s done it to everybody. And then he goes to […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/8/11 — Drew Stafford

    Heading into the third period trailing the Tampa Bay Lightning by a goal on the road, few gave the Buffalo Sabres a realistic shot at completing the comeback against the Eastern Conference’s second place team.  Those who counted them out, however, couldn’t have been more surprised with what they would witness next. The Sabres were […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Neil vs. Rome — 2/7/11

    Last night’s NHL action didn’t produce much in terms of exciting fights, but it did produce one somewhat interesting battle between the Ottawa Senators’ Chris Neil and the Vancouver Canucks Aaron Rome.  What made this fight interesting was how it started. After running over Henrik Sedin, Neil was confronted by his twin brother, Daniel, but […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/7/11 — Mikael Samuelsson

    After an outstanding playoff run last year that saw him record 15 points in 12 games, Mikael Samuelsson has had a difficult time duplicating that production this season.  It is almost as if he has been on a season-long slump, but he finally appears to be breaking out of it as he entered last night’s […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Wallace vs. Steckel — 2/6/11

    While most were busy preparing for the Super Bowl on Sunday, some people may have been surprised to hear that there were actually a few hockey games taking place.  One of those games even produced a rather entertaining bout that we are proud to feature as our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Sunday, […]

    The Nashville Predators’ Sergei Kostitsyn brought a whole new meaning to the term “short-handed goal” Saturday night during a game against the Detroit Red Wings. Leading 1-0 late in the second period, Kostitsyn’s team was short-handed and so was he, as he was sent in on a breakaway but could only manage to get one […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Stars vs. Bruins – 2/2/11

    How could we not come back to the game between the Boston Bruins and the Dallas Stars to award our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Thursday, February 3, 2011?  It looks like this honor will have to be split between eight combatants as Steve Ott, Krys Barch, Brian Sutherby and Adam Burish of […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 2/2/11 – Johan Franzen

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 2/2/11 – Johan Franzen

    If ever there was a good game for Johan Franzen to break out into one of his patented scoring sprees, last night’s was it.  His Detroit Red Wings were on the road visiting the slumping Ottawa Senators, who have had trouble scoring in recent games, but they erupted for five goals against the Wings’ Jimmy […]
