    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Neil vs. Rome — 2/7/11

    Last night’s NHL action didn’t produce much in terms of exciting fights, but it did produce one somewhat interesting battle between the Ottawa Senators’ Chris Neil and the Vancouver Canucks Aaron Rome.  What made this fight interesting was how it started. After running over Henrik Sedin, Neil was confronted by his twin brother, Daniel, but […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/7/11 — Mikael Samuelsson

    After an outstanding playoff run last year that saw him record 15 points in 12 games, Mikael Samuelsson has had a difficult time duplicating that production this season.  It is almost as if he has been on a season-long slump, but he finally appears to be breaking out of it as he entered last night’s […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 1/13/11- Henrik Lundqvist

    Going into last night’s game against the New York Rangers, the Vancouver Canucks were riding a streak that has yet to see them lose in regulation since December 5 against the St. Louis Blues.  From that point on the Canucks have been almost perfect, going 14-0-3 through seventeen games.  Unfortunately for them, they just so […]

    The Toronto Maple Leafs can’t seem to escape those dreaded Eggo Waffles.  A few weeks ago it was their own fans pelting them with the breakfast treat following a lackluster 4-1 loss in front of their hometown crowd.  And last night the Eggos reappeared thanks to the Vancouver Canucks’ Green Guys, who could be seen […]

    The Sedin twins and Roberto Luongo get most of the praise and attention in Vancouver, but last night it would be another member of the Canucks stealing the spotlight in front of the hometown crowd at Rogers Arena.  The Columbus Blue Jackets gave Vancouver everything they had, but they had no answer for Ryan Kesler.

    Hello, Old Friend: 9 Sports Team Logos That Need to Be Brought Back

    This article is brought to you by pure, unbridled nostalgia. In an era of product licensing and incessant branding, teams have been eager to keep tweaking their logos, not to find the perfect identity, but to ensure that die hard fans invest in the most current gear, even if it simply introduces some shading around […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Mills vs. Glass — 11/1/10

    Taking part in the final match-up of a three game slate in the NHL last night, the Devils’ Brad Mills and the Canucks’ Tanner Glass all but assured themselves of a spot on the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” as they squared off in the night’s only bout. However, this fight didn’t earn such […]

    Fighting in hockey is all well and good when two combatants looking to do battle in order to ignite their respective teams decide to drop the gloves.  However, there is little room in the league for meatheads who feel inclined to throw fists at an unwilling participant, whether it be a player standing behind a […]

    I’m not sure what this child is more disappointed about.  Seeing his Vancouver Canucks ousted from the playoffs by the Chicago Blackhawks, or the fact that they will now be trading in their hockey sticks and skates for some golf clubs. Canucks fans have clearly been struggling to cope with this disappointing loss, but is […]

    The Chicago Blackhawks had a tough task ahead of them, heading into GM Place in Vancouver for Game 6 of their Western Conference semi-final series with the Canucks.  A win would mean a series victory and a trip to San Jose for the Conference finals, and is exactly what they got as they turned the […]

    It was do-or-die for the Vancouver Canucks last night at the Mad House on Madison in Chicago.  Trailing their best-of-seven series 3-1 against the Blackhawks, the Canucks were in desperate need of a victory on the road if they wished to stay alive and return home for Game 6 of the Western Conference semi-finals Tuesday […]
