    Hits to the head seem to be getting all of the attention in the NHL these days, as it almost feels like chief disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan has had a different case to review each day. Shanny may have another “head-shot” to review following last night’s game between the Ottawa Senators and the Washington Capitals.  However, […]

    There was plenty of action during yesterday’s all-Canadian battle between the Winnipeg Jets and the Ottawa Senators, as viewers witnessed a total of 10 goals during the Sens’ 6-4 victory.  However, not all of the action from last night’s game was pretty.  In fact, one moment during the opening period turned out to be downright […]

    After losing their first two games of the season, the Ottawa Senators found themselves trailing the Minnesota Wild by a score of 2-0 during the second period of last night’s game.  They were looking for some sort of spark to turn their season around, and they finally found it, in the form of a bone-crushing […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Thorburn vs. Smith — 3/27/11

    Neither the Atlanta Thrashers, nor the Ottawa Senators will be receiving an invitation to this year’s NHL playoffs, but that doesn’t mean they have packed it in for the season just yet.  Proof of that can be seen in the fight between Chris Thorburn and Zack Smith during yesterday’s game. With players from both teams […]

    Picture Of The Day: Legs Aren’t Supposed To Bend Like That

    Ouch! This is pretty much what it looked like the moment Keith Ballard’s healthy right knee turned into a sprained right knee that is expected to keep him out of the Vancouver Canucks’ lineup for three to four weeks.  During Monday night’s game against the Ottawa Senators, Ballard became the latest in a long line […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Neil vs. Rome — 2/7/11

    Last night’s NHL action didn’t produce much in terms of exciting fights, but it did produce one somewhat interesting battle between the Ottawa Senators’ Chris Neil and the Vancouver Canucks Aaron Rome.  What made this fight interesting was how it started. After running over Henrik Sedin, Neil was confronted by his twin brother, Daniel, but […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/7/11 — Mikael Samuelsson

    After an outstanding playoff run last year that saw him record 15 points in 12 games, Mikael Samuelsson has had a difficult time duplicating that production this season.  It is almost as if he has been on a season-long slump, but he finally appears to be breaking out of it as he entered last night’s […]

    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 […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 1/18/11 — Jonas Hiller

    After a rough start to the season the Anaheim Ducks have come on strong, climbing all the way up the Western Conference standings to a very respectable fifth place.  Much of their success should be attributed to the play of their All-Star goaltender, Jonas Hiller, who reminded us all why he was awarded such an […]
