  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Orr vs. King – 12/6/1

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Orr vs. King – 12/6/1

    For a moment during last night’s game between the Washington Capitals and the Toronto Maple Leafs, it appeared as though Alex Ovechkin was looking to start something with Leafs enforcer Colton Orr.  However, D.J. King would end up stepping in for Ovechkin on this occasion, as he took care of the fighting and left the […]

    Sidney Crosby’s Highlight Reel Assist (Video)

    Not many players in the league can turn a bad pass into a great dangle that leads to a highlight reel assist, but Sidney Crosby certainly can.  That was exactly what the Penguins’ captain did last night during a game against the New Jersey Devils. Skating full speed down the left side of the boards, […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Kaleta’s Flurry Of Lefts – 12/3/10

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Kaleta’s Flurry Of Lefts – 12/3/10

    The Columbus Blue Jackets and the Buffalo Sabres do not meet often, but they did last night and it turned into a rather heated affair.  Things began to get chippy following a nasty hit-from-behind by the Jackets’ Mike Commodore on the Sabres’ Patrick Kaleta.  Commodore would receive a 5-minute boarding penalty and immediately after coming […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Boogaard vs. Gillies – 12/2/10

    Derek “The Bogeyman” Boogaard has haunted the dreams of several NHL enforcers, and Trevor Gillies may have just added his name to that list. These two combatants dropped their mitts during last night’s game between the New York Rangers and the New York Islanders, and while Gillies did manage to hang in there against the […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Thornton vs. Shelley – 12/1/10

    Last season the Boston Bruins and the Philadelphia Flyers provided hockey fans with tons of excitement during their Eastern Conference Semi-Final Series, which saw the Flyers come back from a 3-0 deficit to win the series in seven games.  And while last night’s meeting between these two teams may not have shared a similar level […]

    Picture Of The Day: Close-Up Shot

    The Chicago Blackhawks’ John Scott got plenty of good shots in against the Kings’ Kevin Westgarth during their tilt on Saturday night, but perhaps the best shot of the fight was the one captured by this lovely blond and her pink Blackberry. Luckily for Westgarth, some chicks happen to dig scars.  I wonder if this […]

    CBC Commentators Escape A Close Call With The Zamboni (Video)

    Just inside the zamboni gates appears to be a common place for hockey commentators to conduct their pre-game introductions, but after a close call prior to Saturday night’s game between the San Jose Sharks and the Edmonton Oilers, they may want to consider relocating. During the pregame summary prior to the second game of CBC’s […]

    Marc Staal Rocks Matt Stajan With Hard Open-Ice Hit (Video)

    The NHL may be looking to crack down on blind-sided hits, but that is no excuse for players not to keep their heads up at all times.  Unfortunately for Matt Stajan, he would be forced to learn that lesson the hard way last night. With just over ten minutes remaining in the game, the Flames’ […]

  • Sidney Crosby’s Amazing Puck-Pyramid Trick (Video)

    Sidney Crosby’s Amazing Puck-Pyramid Trick (Video)

    Sidney Crosby is nothing short of magnificent with the puck on his stick.  The guy is a magician on ice.  If that wasn’t already evident following his slap-shot-net-adjustment drill, it is now after watching him pick off pucks along the ledge of the boards with his shot. Knocking off that pyramid is cool and all, […]
