    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Kassian vs. Sestito — 2/16/12

    When it comes to fighting in hockey, it is difficult to say whether quantity of punches is greater than quality of punches.  In some cases,it is.  During last night’s bout between Zack Kassian of the Buffalo Sabres and Tom Sestito of the Philadelphia Flyers, it wasn’t, as quality easily prevailed over quantity.

    Through his first 52 games played this season, Philadelphia Flyers forward Claude Giroux had recorded three four-point games, but he just can’t seem to reach that elusive fifth point in a single game.  That changed during game 53 of the season for Giroux, as he finally had himself a five-point game during last night’s contest […]

    Records weren’t the only thing falling at Joe Louis Arena last night.  Bodies were as well, as the battle between the Detroit Red Wings and the Philadelphia Flyers was not one for the faint of heart.

    Last night’s NHL action provided us with a total of six fights, and while none of them ranked high on the entertainment meter, one of them did feature one of the league’s top players.  It took place during a game between the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Islanders, as 50-point-man Claude Giroux dropped the […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 12/21/11 — Claude Giroux

    When Claude Giroux went out with a concussion a few weeks ago, some feared that the injury could develop into something that will hamper the Flyers forward for the remainder of the season.  While the long-term impact of the injury still remains to be seen, it didn’t seem like the injury had affected him even […]

    There were plenty of hits being dished out during last night’s game between the Washington Capitals and the Philadelphia Flyers, as the teams delivered a total of 22 and 21 hits, respectively.  However, their combined 43 hits were largely overshadowed by the single check delivered by the officiating crew. That hit came late in the […]

    No one is a fan of the 1-3-1 neutral zone trap in hockey.  Not the fans.  Not the media.  And certainly not the Philadelphia Flyers.  That was evident during last night’s game between the Flyers and the Tampa Bay Lightning, as it didn’t take long for the trap to take over. Less than one minute […]

    Hockey players wear helmets for protection, but Patrick Kaleta of the Buffalo Sabres has a knack for using his as a weapon. He has done it in the past, headbutting members of the opposition on two separate occasions last season.  He was at it once again last night, as he drove his head into the […]

    Ilya Bryzgalov: “I’m Terrible And I Have Zero Confidence” (Video)

    While every member of the media appreciates a player who gives their honest opinion during an interview, I am quite certain that the last thing any goaltender’s teammates would want to hear is their $5.67-million netminder admit that he is terrible and has zero confidence. After last night’s game, Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov did […]
