  • 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)

    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

    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 […]

    Three-Minute Time Lapse Of Heinz Field Winter Classic Transformation (Video)

    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 […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Hordichuk vs. Rupp – 12/22/10

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Hordichuk vs. Rupp – 12/22/10

    The Pittsburgh Penguins’ Michael Rupp decided to give the knuckles of fellow tough guy Deryk Engelland a day off last night as he stepped in and took on Florida Panthers’ enforcer Darcy Hordichuk.  However, he was probably regretting that decision after taking some vicious rights from Hordichuk, including a final shot that sent him to […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Down Goes Pyatt – 12/20/10

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Down Goes Pyatt – 12/20/10

    I’m not sure what Taylor Pyatt was thinking when he dropped the gloves with Deryk Engelland, but he was probably regretting that decision after getting leveled by a stiff right hand from the Pens’ enforcer. Engelland has already taken down the likes of Colton Orr, Jody Shelley and Chris Neil, among others, and last night […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Avery vs. Asham – 12/15/10

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Avery vs. Asham – 12/15/10

    There are plenty of players throughout the National Hockey League that would love to get their hands on Rangers super-pest Sean Avery.  Last night the Penguins’ Arron Asham was given that opportunity.  Unfortunately for all the Avery haters out there (and believe me when I say there are plenty of them), he was unable to […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Orr Looks For Revenge – 12/8/10

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Orr Looks For Revenge – 12/8/10

    Earlier in the season we brought you an edition of the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” that featured the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Deryk Engelland delivering a one-punch knockout to the Maple Leafs’ Colton Orr.  Last night these two teams squared off once again, and so too did their enforcers. Orr was looking for some revenge […]
