    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 […]

    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 […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 1/11/11 — Patrice Bergeron

    Headed into last night’s game, the Boston Bruins found themselves two points up on the Montreal Canadiens for top spot in the Northeast Division.  With the Habs taking care of business against the New York Rangers, the Bruins needed to do the same at home against the Ottawa Senators in order to maintain that lead.  […]

    Matt Carkner Flicks Blood At Rangers Bench Following Fight (Video)

    The Ottawa Senators enforcer Matt Carkner may have set a new precedent following a fight with Derek Boogaard late in the first period of last night’s game against the New York Rangers.  After going to the ground, Carkner rose to his feet and with blood streaming down his face he skated by the Rangers’ bench and […]
