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

    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 […]

    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

    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 […]

    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 […]
