    The Stat Line Of The Night — 3/3/11 — Pekka Rinne

    With the battle for playoff spots in the Western Conference heating up down the stretch, several teams currently find themselves fighting for the final five spots in what has become one of the closest playoff races the NHL has seen in a while.  With every point being so important, perfection has become a must for […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Glass vs. Crombeen — 2/24/11

    Could this be yet another nominee for our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Year”? The Vancouver Canucks Tanner Glass and the St. Louis Blues B.J. Crombeen didn’t take long to exchange pleasantries last night when their teams hooked up for a meeting at Rogers Arena.  These two tough guys began throwing punches just over a […]

    The Green Guys Are Back, Smoking Pipes (Video)

    They’re back! It has been quite a while since we last seen the Vancouver Canucks’ Green Guys tossing waffles into the air as the Toronto Maple Leafs’ Tim Brent served a 2-minute goaltender interference penalty.  On Saturday night during CBC’s Hockey Day In Canada, they made their triumphant return, this time breaking the indoor smoking […]

    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 […]

    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 […]
