  • 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 […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Down Goes Fraser — 1/26/11

    An honorable mention goes out to the Stars Krys Barch, who took on two Edmonton Oilers in two separate fights last night.  However, there is no way we could deny the Dallas Stars’ Matt Niskanen a spot on this edition of the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” after his assault on the face of […]

    NHL Referee Goes Through Puberty Right Before Our Eyes (Video)

    NHL referee Chris Rooney may be 35-years-old, but during last night’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the New York Islanders, he took a trip back in time to somewhere around the year 1991, when he was a young teenager just hitting puberty. Unfortunately for Chris, the two teams and approximately 4976 fans in attendance, […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Asham vs. Konopka — 1/25/11

    No Sidney Crosby.  No Evgeni Malkin.  And no goals through the first 48 minutes of this game.  Yes, it was quite the boring affair between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New York Islanders last night, but thankfully Arron Asham and Zenon Konopka were able to provide the fans in attendance at the Consol Energy Center […]

    Dion Phaneuf Makes It Two Crushing Hits In Two Days (Video)

    The Toronto Maple Leafs’ Dion Phaneuf has been sending quite the message during his team’s road trip down south, and the only thing more amazing that the magnitude of his hits has been the fact that he has been able to deliver them within the opening 30 seconds of each game. On Monday night in […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Clifford vs. Thornton — 1/24/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Clifford vs. Thornton — 1/24/11

    There was no shortage of great fights during last night’s NHL action, and while bouts between the Blues’ Cam Janssen and the Avs’ David Koci, and the Leafs’ Clarke MacArthur and the Canes Chad LaRose were quite entertaining, they simply couldn’t top the performance we received from the Los Angeles Kings’ Kyle Clifford and the […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 1/24/11 — Jonathan Quick

    After getting off to a hot start this season and finding themselves on top of the Western Conference standings, the Los Angeles Kings have cooled off considerably, dropping out of the playoffs.  Looking to creep back into the top eight, they had a tough tasks in front of them as the stingy Boston Bruins visited […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Carcillo vs. Dowell — 1/23/11

    It was the first time the Philadelphia Flyers and the Chicago Blackhawks met since Game Six of last season’s Stanley Cup Finals, and although there wasn’t a championship on the line this time around, there was certainly no love lost between these two bitter rivals.  That was evident through the first 40 minutes of action […]

    Panthers’ Cory Stillman Scores With His Face (Video)

    Some hockey coaches will say “you should always use your head when out on the ice.”  Others will tell you that “a goal is a goal, no matter how ugly it is.”  I’m guessing Cory Stillman has heard both of these before, and after his first period goal Wednesday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets, […]
