    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Rupp vs. Konopka — 2/2/11

    In most cases we would present you with the bout between goaltenders Brent Johnson and Rick DiPietro as our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night,” but because it only lasted one punch and we already brought it to you earlier today, we will award this honor to the other scrap that took place during last […]

    Craig Adams Hits A Hockey Hole-In-One (Video)

    If there were ever such thing as a hockey hole-in-one, it would probably look a little something like what took place following a shot off the stick of Craig Adams last night. With the Pittsburgh Penguins leading the New York Islanders by a score of 2-0 late in the second period, the Pens appeared to […]

    Goalie Fight! Pens’ Brent Johnson KO’s Isles’ Rick DiPietro (Video)

    Last night was just one of those nights where it seemed as though nothing was going right for the New York Islanders. In Pittsburgh to take on the Penguins, the Isles found themselves getting out-hit and out-played throughout the first 59 minutes of the game, and when Rick DiPietro attempted to salvage some dignity for […]

    After watching his brothers, Eric and Marc, play together on the same team at the All-Star Game this past weekend, Jordan Staal may have felt somewhat neglected.  Perhaps he was thinking that the whole league would forget about the third Staal brother playing in the NHL, so he decided to do something that would get […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Asham vs. Konopka — 1/25/11

    No Sidney Crosby.  No Evgeni Malkin.  And no goals through the first 48 minutes of this game.  Yes, it was quite the boring affair between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New York Islanders last night, but thankfully Arron Asham and Zenon Konopka were able to provide the fans in attendance at the Consol Energy Center […]

    Gang War Ensues Between The Habs And The Pens (Video)

    One week ago Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price stopped the Pittsburgh Penguins Chris Kunitz in a shootout to earn his team the victory, and following the save he showcased a bit of his thuggery as he crossed his arms in a gangster-like pose.  Penguins netminder Marc-Andre Fleury certainly didn’t forget the gesture and he fired […]

  • Sidney Crosby’s Stick Catches Pucks Like A Glove (Video)

    Sidney Crosby’s Stick Catches Pucks Like A Glove (Video)

    In a previous post I referred to Sidney Crosby as somewhat of a magician on the ice as he used his stick like a magic wand to pick off a rolling puck along the edge of the boards. In this latest demonstration, Crosby’s stick acts more like a glove, rather than a wand, as he […]

    Steven Stamkos Gives Us Hockey’s Worst Penalty Shot FAIL Ever! (Video)

    When New Jersey Devils forward Ilya Kovalchuk whiffed on a shot during a shootout earlier in the season, many of us thought to ourselves, “How can a superstar of his caliber fail so miserably during a one-on-one with the goalie?”  Seemingly attempting to answer that question, Steven Stamkos stepped up to the forefront last night […]

    Alex Ovechkin’s Atomic Wedgie (Video)

    Alex Oveckin was awfully quiet on New Years Day during the Washington Capitals’ 3-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins at the NHL’s 2011 Winter Classic.  However, “The Great 8″ did manage to make some noise one day earlier during the Capitals’ practice at Heinz Field.  With several members of the media looking on, Ovi was […]

    A Progressive Look At Ben Lovejoy’s Battered Face (Pic + Vid)

    Those who watched episode three of HBO’s 24/7: Road to the Winter Classic last night were treated to one of the most grueling parts of the game of hockey: the dreaded facial injury. Most players opt for limited facial protection, but even those who wear visors covering half of their face are still susceptible to […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/29/10 – Rick DiPietro

    There were some pretty terrific individual performances coming from the two major sports leagues that were active last night.  The Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade put up an impressive 45 points and 7 rebounds in a win against the Rockets, while Memphis’ Zach Randolph recorded 35 points and 17 rebounds in a losing cause.  And then […]

    It appears as though Heinz field is all set to go for the much anticipated 2011 NHL Winter Classic game between the Washington Capitals and the Pittsburgh Penguins at Heinz Field on New Years Day.  Immediately following the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Thursday night home victory over the Carolina Panthers, preparations began to transform the football field […]
