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

    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 […]

    9 Most Hateable Teams in Pro Sports

    It’s fun to hate sports teams. We LOVE to hate sports teams. If there weren’t hateable teams out there, every game would be the equivalent of the Seattle Mariners versus the Sacramento Kings. No one would care. Sports consist of compelling stories, and every compelling story needs an antagonist. And no one is more antagonistic […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Carcillo vs. Prust — 11/4/10

    Dan Carcillo spent the majority of last night’s game against the New York Rangers going after super-pest Sean Avery.  However, in the end, it was tough guy Brandon Prust that he would find himself going toe-to-toe against. With Derek Boogaard and Jody Shelley squaring off earlier in the evening, we will consider this to be […]

    Adam Burish Has Some Harsh Words For Chris Pronger

    The Chicago Tribune weren’t the only ones taking a shot at Chris Pronger.  Even after the Stanley Cup Finals series had been decided and the Chicago Blackhawks were awarded the Stanley Cup, forward Adam Burish had some rather harsh words for the Philadelphia Flyers’ defenseman. When asked by a reporter what he really though of […]

    Most Awkward Stanley Cup Winning Celebration Ever? (Video)

    The wait is finally over!  Last night at the Wachovia Center, the Chicago Blackhawks became the first team in this year’s Stanley Cup Finals to win on the road.  As a result, they were rewarded with their first Stanley Cup since 1961 and judging by their initial celebration, it sure does appear as though it […]

    Chicago Media Takes A Shot At “Chrissy” Pronger

    After stealing the pucks at the conclusion of each of the Blackhawks first two wins in their best-of-seven Stanley Cup Finals series with the Philadelphia Flyers (Ben Eager nabbed it after their third victory in Game 5), it is no secret that Chris Pronger has become public enemy No. 1 in the Windy City.  With […]

    Chris Pronger Puts Stolen Pucks On Craigslist

    For those who haven’t heard about all of the extra-curricular activities going on in the Stanley Cup Final series between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Chicago Blackhawks, here is a quick update. After losing Games 1 and 2, Flyers defenseman Chris Progner has made it his mission to pick up the game pucks following the […]

    With the Chicago Blackhawks taking Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, it was a near given that the Philadelphia Flyers were going to turn up the grit and toughness a notch in Game 2 and try to steal home ice.  Flyers coach Peter Laviolette knew if the Flyers were going to bring the nasty, […]

    Philadelphia Flyers’ Fan Drops Epic F-Bomb on Live TV (Video)

    When Philadelphia sports fans aren’t throwing batteries at their players, puking on families, or getting tased after running on the field, they can be heard dropping classier F-bombs on television.  But I’m going to give the Philly fans the benefit of the doubt on this one. Why?  Because the usage in this instance actually helps […]

  • Dan Carcillo Talks About Marc Savard’s Biting (Video)

    Dan Carcillo Talks About Marc Savard’s Biting (Video)

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ Dan Carcillo looks like a cross between Michael Kelso of “That 70′s Show” and your pick of any of heavy metal’s lead guitarists. Here he talks about being bitten by the Bruins’ Marc Savard. Looks to me that Carcillo is just jealous of Savard having front teeth. In fact, maybe Savard was […]

    Flyers’ Laperriere Blocks Shot With His Face (Video)

    The NHL playoffs are the most grueling post-season in all of professional sports.  It is a time when players must show their willingness to sacrifice their bodies for the greater good of the team, no matter what that entails.  Sometimes it involves having your body speared repeatedly by the sticks of five opposing players.  Other […]
