Ready for more hockey fights? Of course you are and you’re in luck as you’ve come to the right place. Once again, we picked the five best hockey fights from the previous week of NHL action and this week we have some real gems.
Henrik Sedin reached a big milestone, scoring a goal against the Florida Panthers on Friday night which gave him 1,000 points in his NHL career. The goal appropriately came against Roberto Luongo, a teammate of Sedin’s for a long stretch in Vancouver. After allowing the goal, Luongo had the classiest of gestures, skating up to […]
Milan Lucic delivered one of the best hits of the season on Friday night, destroying Auston Watson with a huge shoulder-to-shoulder check behind the Edmonton goal. The hit sent Watson flipping/spinning through the air and eventually gave the Oilers a powerplay as Watson foolishly retaliated after the whistle.
Thursday night’s game between the Colorado Avalanche and the Anaheim Ducks was expected to be an average regular season game, but the night turned into a memorable one thanks to a pane of broken glass. With 9:48 left to play in the second period, a pane of glass was broken near the netting. When the crew […]
The NHL is always looking for ways to increase scoring and the most popular option involves shrinking the equipment worn by the league’s goaltenders. Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford has a different idea and it involves improvements to the playing surface. Speaking with the Chicago Sun-Times, Crawford believes that the quality of the ice is the […]
If Jared Spurgeon’s goal on Tuesday night against the New Jersey Devils isn’t named the best of the year, it at least deserves to be in the conversation. After the puck deflected and hit off the opposing netminder, Spurgeon tipped the puck down to himself before batting in an absolute beauty of goal.
There are a lot of ways to show your frustration. Phil Kessel’s preferred method is to make a series of odd faces on the bench. In the case of Jamie Benn, he decided to take his anger out on some of his own sticks by breaking one over his knee out on the ice and two over […]
The NHL has hit its midway point and that means the battle for the playoffs is officially on. It’s make or break time for most NHL teams and that usually produces some intense fights. This week is a great collection of scraps, including a couple from some unlikely sources.
Andrew Shaw’s first game back with the Montreal Canadiens was both eventful and short-lived. Shaw returned from a concussion and immediately caused some controversy in the first period, dishing out a blindside hit to Jesper Fast before fighting J.T. Miller. Shaw was ejected and it’s possible he may receive some additional discipline from the Department of Player […]
The University of Denver hockey team traveled to Kalamazoo for an upcoming game. But, there was just one little problem – their sticks didn’t make the trip with them. Without their most important piece of equipment, the team still practiced, pretending they all had their sticks as they ran through some drills.
[link_box id=”22277″ site_id=”17″ layout=”link-box-third” alignment=”alignright”]The Colorado Avalanche recently traded Cody McLeod to the Nashville Predators in exchange for Felix Girard. The trade, one which will likely be the first of many involving the Avs, was the first move by a team which desperately needs to rebuild and get younger. Aside from the obvious need to rebuild, the […]
When Joe Finley was unable to secure a job in the NHL and decided to take his talents abroad, it seemed pretty likely that he’d fade into hockey obscurity. Finley joined HIFK in the Finnish Liiga prior to 2016-17 and he got the hockey community buzzing for a monster blindside hit on Michel Miklík.
Evander Kane always seems to be at the center of some sort of controversy. This time it’s for spearing Ben Bishop after Bishop stopped Kane’s wraparound attempt during Buffalo’s game against Tampa Bay on Thursday night.
The Carolina Hurricanes played a fun prank at the expense of defenseman Ryan Murphy, filling up the 23-year-old’s car with a ton of styrofoam packing peanuts. Justin Faulk was on the scene to capture Murphy’s colorful, NSFW reaction.
Phil Kessel has had a really strong year, but even the best players in the NHL can get frustrated from time to time. Kessel showed some of that frustration in the funniest of ways, grumbling and making faces on the Penguins’ bench.
