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

    Anytime two division rivals hook up it only seems fitting that their two enforcers engage in some fisticuffs.  That was exactly what happened when the Ottawa Senators and the Boston Bruins did battle at the Gardens last night as Shawn Thornton and Matt Carkner dropped the gloves and exchanged blows during yet another exciting edition […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Dorsett vs. Clifford — 1/8/11

    Sunday provided us with little entertainment in terms of hockey fights, which forced us to turn to Saturday’s action in search of our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for the weekend.  That is where we found a rather exciting bout which took place between the Los Angeles Kings’ Kyle Clifford and the Columbus Blue […]

    There is little doubt that whether it is a break-away, penalty-shot or shootout, these one-on-one battles between player and goalie provide some of the most exciting moments a hockey game can offer.  Although, at times they can also provide some rather embarrassing, bloopers.  That may have been the case on Wednesday night thanks to Steven […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 1/6/11 – Danny Briere

    Locked in a tight battle with the Pittsburgh Penguins for top spot in both the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference, the Philadelphia Flyers were in need of a victory in order to remain a single point behind their inner-state rivals.  Playing in New Jersey against a Devils team that had only won six of […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Prust vs. Brodie — 1/5/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Prust vs. Brodie — 1/5/11

    Despite an outstanding performance from two of the NHL’s toughest heavyweights, Wade Belak and George Parros, taking place last night, we simply couldn’t overlook this tremendous bout between the Carolina Hurricanes’ Troy Brodie and the New York Rangers’ Brandon Prust. Despite the incredible sized advantage in favor of Brodie, Prust was able to hang in […]

    Sidney Crosby’s Stick Catches Pucks Like A Glove (Video)

    In a previous post I referred to Sidney Crosby as somewhat of a magician on the ice as he used his stick like a magic wand to pick off a rolling puck along the edge of the boards. In this latest demonstration, Crosby’s stick acts more like a glove, rather than a wand, as he […]

    Steven Stamkos Gives Us Hockey’s Worst Penalty Shot FAIL Ever! (Video)

    When New Jersey Devils forward Ilya Kovalchuk whiffed on a shot during a shootout earlier in the season, many of us thought to ourselves, “How can a superstar of his caliber fail so miserably during a one-on-one with the goalie?”  Seemingly attempting to answer that question, Steven Stamkos stepped up to the forefront last night […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Downie vs. Hendricks – 1/4/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Downie vs. Hendricks – 1/4/11

    It wasn’t the best of bouts, but with only one fight taking place in the NHL last night, we had no choice but to make this scrap between the Tampa Bay Lightning’s Steve Downie and the Washington Capitals’ Matt Hendricks our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Tuesday, January 4, 2011. Had Hendricks been […]

    Wild’s Stoner Scores A Pothead’s Goal (Video)

    With the game tied 1-1 just over a minute into the third period, a crazy carom off the glass on a simple dump-in was enough to fool New Jersey Devils goaltender Johan Hedberg and end up in the back of the net, giving the Minnesota Wild the 2-1 victory at the Prudential Center.  It seems […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 1/4/11 — Dwayne Roloson

    After struggling throughout December, many felt that a big win against the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Winter Classic on New Years Day was just what the Washington Capitals needed in order to turn things around.  Unfortunately for them, Dwayne Roloson wasn’t having any of that. After being acquired by the Tampa bay Lightning in a […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Janssen vs. Barch – 1/2/11

    What better way to start off the new year than with an early candidate for “Fight of the Year.”  And when we say “Fight of the Year”, we are not only talking about hockey.  Instead, we are referring to just about every fist-throwing sport you can imagine, including mixed martial arts, boxing, and even kickboxing. […]

    Alex Ovechkin’s Atomic Wedgie (Video)

    Alex Oveckin was awfully quiet on New Years Day during the Washington Capitals’ 3-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins at the NHL’s 2011 Winter Classic.  However, “The Great 8″ did manage to make some noise one day earlier during the Capitals’ practice at Heinz Field.  With several members of the media looking on, Ovi was […]
