Johnny Gaudreau might have a few cobwebs to shake loose after receiving this devastating hit from Leo Komarov. Gaudreau was collecting the puck along the boards and had no idea that Komarov was rushing in to deliver a huge check.
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.
If you have been in the NHL for a long enough period of time, you have seen everything. Bad ice, delays of all kinds, fights that become especially brutal. For veteran goaltender of the Vancouver Canucks Ryan Miller, he is upset about one thing only after their game against the Chicago Blackhawks. The damn ice.
Welcome once again to This Week in NHL Stupid, where we track the ugly, the silly, and the just plain stupid in the world of hockey. Now, some things in life are stupid by their very nature. It’s understood, and what is understood doesn’t need to be discussed. For example, if we at Puck Drunk […]
The Boston Bruins have played good hockey so far in 2016-17, yet the club’s results haven’t been where they should be. Following Friday’s 1-0 defeat to the Chicago Blackhawks, the B’s record dropped to 23-20-6, tumbling almost out of playoff position after three straight losses. Claude Julien admitted despite recent turbulence he’s not worried about […]
Robin Lehner of the Sabres has given us an early save of the year candidate against the Canadiens on Saturday night as he robbed Montreal’s Alex Galchenyuk, who had a wide open net … briefly.
The Dallas Stars in-arena staff has jokes, lots of jokes. So when incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer insisted that 1.5 million people attended Friday’s presidential inauguration on Saturday, the Stars decided to have a little fun with that when they announced their own attendance for their Saturday night home game: I’m sure pictures […]
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.
Lawson Crouse probably regrets his decision to throw hands with Chris Stewart. The Arizona Coyotes rookie faced off against the Minnesota Wild forward on Thursday night, getting his ass handed to him in a quick tilt.
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 […]

Think […]
Chris Kreider has been fined $5,000 by the league after hitting Cody Eakin with his own helmet during a fight during last night’s New York Rangers-Dallas Stars game.
