    A Progressive Look At Ben Lovejoy’s Battered Face (Pic + Vid)

    Those who watched episode three of HBO’s 24/7: Road to the Winter Classic last night were treated to one of the most grueling parts of the game of hockey: the dreaded facial injury. Most players opt for limited facial protection, but even those who wear visors covering half of their face are still susceptible to […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/29/10 – Rick DiPietro

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/29/10 – Rick DiPietro

    There were some pretty terrific individual performances coming from the two major sports leagues that were active last night.  The Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade put up an impressive 45 points and 7 rebounds in a win against the Rockets, while Memphis’ Zach Randolph recorded 35 points and 17 rebounds in a losing cause.  And then […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Scott vs. Jansen – 12/28/10

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Scott vs. Jansen – 12/28/10

    The St. Louis Blues and the Chicago Blackhawks hooked up for the fourth time this season last night and that gave enforcers Cam Jansen and John Scott the opportunity to renew acquaintances.  These two combatants exchanged punches during a fight-filled affair back on November 3oth, and although this game did not share the same level […]

    Three-Minute Time Lapse Of Heinz Field Winter Classic Transformation (Video)

    It appears as though Heinz field is all set to go for the much anticipated 2011 NHL Winter Classic game between the Washington Capitals and the Pittsburgh Penguins at Heinz Field on New Years Day.  Immediately following the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Thursday night home victory over the Carolina Panthers, preparations began to transform the football field […]

    Anze Kopitar Delivers An Alley-Oop Hockey Pass (Video)

    Basketball’s version of the alley-oop pass is quite impressive, but it has become such a common occurrence on the hard-court that it simply does not receive the same type of attention that it once did.  As for hockey’s version of the alley-oop pass, it is so rare that when the Los Angeles Kings’ Anze Kopitar […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Hordichuk vs. Rupp – 12/22/10

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Hordichuk vs. Rupp – 12/22/10

    The Pittsburgh Penguins’ Michael Rupp decided to give the knuckles of fellow tough guy Deryk Engelland a day off last night as he stepped in and took on Florida Panthers’ enforcer Darcy Hordichuk.  However, he was probably regretting that decision after taking some vicious rights from Hordichuk, including a final shot that sent him to […]

    Gatorade Facial (GIF)

    Talk about bad timing.  The camera isn’t usually on the New York Rangers’ Dale Weise, but it was for a short period of time during Saturday afternoon’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers.  And those couple of seconds of face time were just enough to catch this rather hilarious Gatorade facial. Thanks to a fight with […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Boll vs. Jackman – 12/21/10

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Boll vs. Jackman – 12/21/10

    Short and sweet.  That is the way Tim Jackman and Jared Boll seem to like their fights.  With the attention focused on the play in the Calgary Flames’ zone during their game against the Columbus Blue Jackets last night, both combatants decided to air their grievances in a rather quick fashion, dropping their gloves behind […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Down Goes Pyatt – 12/20/10

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Down Goes Pyatt – 12/20/10

    I’m not sure what Taylor Pyatt was thinking when he dropped the gloves with Deryk Engelland, but he was probably regretting that decision after getting leveled by a stiff right hand from the Pens’ enforcer. Engelland has already taken down the likes of Colton Orr, Jody Shelley and Chris Neil, among others, and last night […]

    Waffle Night In Canada (GIF)

    The Toronto Maple Leafs can’t seem to escape those dreaded Eggo Waffles.  A few weeks ago it was their own fans pelting them with the breakfast treat following a lackluster 4-1 loss in front of their hometown crowd.  And last night the Eggos reappeared thanks to the Vancouver Canucks’ Green Guys, who could be seen […]

    Face Full Of Glass (GIF)

    Wait for it.  Wait for it.  Wait for it…and Boom!  There it is!  Your close-up shot of Blues defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo. I am not quite sure how he ended up sliding face first into the glass after diving at the feet of the Wings’ Valtteri Filppula, but this clip could earn Colaiacovo a contract with […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Avery vs. Asham – 12/15/10

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Avery vs. Asham – 12/15/10

    There are plenty of players throughout the National Hockey League that would love to get their hands on Rangers super-pest Sean Avery.  Last night the Penguins’ Arron Asham was given that opportunity.  Unfortunately for all the Avery haters out there (and believe me when I say there are plenty of them), he was unable to […]
