  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Asham vs. McLeod — 11/15/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Asham vs. McLeod — 11/15/11

    An incredible goal from Matt Duchene wasn’t the only highlight to come from last night’s game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Colorado Avalanche.  Evgeni Malkin also provided an spectacular goal of his own, and enforcers Arron Asham and Cody McLeod gave us a spirited 20-second bout that featured plenty of devastating right hands. Duchene […]

    Matt Duchene Scored An Absolute Beauty (Video)

    Could this be an early “Goal of the Year” candidate?  Sorry Jamie Benn, but it has my vote! With only a few minutes remaining in the opening period and the Colorado Avalanche already leading 1-0, Matt Duchene took a pass from Paul Stastny, dragged the puck through his legs and found the back of the […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Engelland vs. Thorburn — 10/17/11

    Going forward, we expect it will be tough for any of the NHL’s combatants to match the performance put forth by Cam Janssen and Brian McGrattan over the weekend. Despite giving it their best shot, Deryk Engelland of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Chris Thorburn of the Winnipeg Jets couldn’t place themselves among the early nominees […]

    With all of the attention surrounding the issues of fighting, headshots and concussions in hockey these days, the last thing the NHL needed was what transpired in Pittsburgh last night during a game between the Penguins and the Washington Capitals. Approximately six minutes into the third period, the Pens’ Arron Asham and the Caps’ Jay […]

    Summertime is clearly a slow time for sports fans and sports blogs alike.  With the MLB acting as the only major North American sports league currently in action, as players from the NFL, NHL and NBA enjoy their time in the sun with their smokeshow girlfriends, it only makes sense for us to keep busy […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/27/11 — Dwayne Roloson

    After trailing their best-of-seven opening round series 3-1, the Tampa Bay Lightning were able to force a Game 7 and were suddenly one win away from advancing to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since they raised the Stanley Cup in 2004.  Winning a do-or-die game on the road at the […]

    Chris Conner’s Penalty Shot Was Awfully Embarrassing (Video)

    With his Penguins trailing by a single goal midway through the second period of Game 6 last night against the Tampa Bay Lightning, Chris Conner found himself with the puck on his stick and no one between himself and Lightning goaltender Dwayne Roloson.  Unfortunately for him, that puck wouldn’t stay on his stick for quite […]

    History Has Perfect Timing (James Neal’s Winner – Video)

    James Neal hadn’t recorded a goal in the post-season. He entered last night’s game with only one assist in his three playoff games with Pittsburgh this season. He hadn’t scored a goal in his previous 16 games, with his last coming on March 8th against Buffalo. In fact, he had only recorded one goal in […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Bradley vs. Craig — 2/21/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Bradley vs. Craig — 2/21/11

    Revenge doesn’t always work out quite like it was originally planned.  The Pittsburgh Penguins’ Ryan Craig learned that the hard way last night during a game against the Washington Capitals.  After watching teammate Matt Cooke take a hard check along the boards midway through the second period from Matt Bradley, Craig attempted to exact some […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Dorsett vs. Lovejoy — 2/8/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Dorsett vs. Lovejoy — 2/8/11

    Saved by the official.  That was how Derek Dorsett must have felt following a fight with Ben Lovejoy last night.  After delivering a flurry of punches to the face of the Penguins’ enforcer, Dorsett found himself with a jersey over his head.  Unable to see, the Blue Jackets’ tough guy was about to endure a […]

    Following a dirty knee from the Penguins’ Matt Cooke on the Capitals’ Alex Ovechkin during the final minutes of Sunday afternoon’s game, Caps’ coach Bruce Boudreau had this to say: “It’s Matt Cooke. Need we say more?” Boudreau said. “It’s not like it’s his first rodeo. He’s done it to everybody. And then he goes to […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Wallace vs. Steckel — 2/6/11

    While most were busy preparing for the Super Bowl on Sunday, some people may have been surprised to hear that there were actually a few hockey games taking place.  One of those games even produced a rather entertaining bout that we are proud to feature as our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Sunday, […]
