  • 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, […]

    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)

    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

    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)

    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 […]
