Pascal Dupuis was taken off of the ice last night in a stretcher after taking a puck to what appears to be the base of his neck. In front of the net, Dupuis is crosschecked to the ice by Alex Goligoski. While on all fours, he is hit in the back of the neck with a shot from Kris Letang.
Watching a player being removed from the ice on a stretc [...]
This is one of the cheapest plays in the NHL. NBC showed a video montage of all the cheap shots the Capitals took on Crosby Wednesday night, this Ovechkin nut tap was not included. Call him Crysby, a diver or whatever, if you get the chance watch the abuse Crosby takes in just a single game, every game. Watch Ovechkin’s stick, the [...]
Who needs a publicist more Evgeni Malkin or the NHL? Seriously? When you have three college kids on Jeopardy unaware who won the scoring title last year, the NHL has a problem. They even gave them the hint “GENO”. You would think in the last five years winning two scoring titles, league MVP, playoff MVP, a Stanley Cup and being tied fo [...]
Here is Sidney Crosby & Mario Lemieux’s goal side by side. Crosby’s amazing goal was almost identical to the goal that Mario Lemieux scored against the Islanders then had bronzed outside the Consol Energy Center.

While it is being speculated that Neal had a lower body injury after a clean check by Hamonic, you can clearly see in the first video that it is Neal’s right hand th [...]
Penguins Sidney Crosby, James Neal and Paul Martin skated and shot pucks around before the Pittsburgh Penguins practice today. Crosby wore a full face shield. This is a great sign that Crosby may be ready to come back soon. It is also good sign that James Neal may not have a severe concussion. Paul Martin had surgery to repair a broken bo [...]
After the Penguins practice today, Sidney Crosby gave his first interview since getting hit in the face with a slapshot. He did not participate in the practice but says he’s feeling much better. He has not been able to eat, is having a hard time keeping weight and is not setting a timetable for returning to the ice. His plan is to [...]
NHL leading scorer Sidney Crosby got hit in the face with a puck shot by his own teammate Brooks Orpik just minutes into the Pittsburgh Penguins matinee against the New York Islanders and did not ruturn to the ice. Crosby was seen crouched over bleeding but was able to leave the ice without help. It has been reported that Sidney Crosby has a [...]
Here is a video of Toronto’s Frazer McLaren fighting Ottawa’s Dave Dziurzynski. McLaren KO’s Dziurzynski, but the scary part is what happens afterwards. Should the NHL ban fighting? When does the NHL step in to protect player safety?
As a fan I love fighting in hockey. They police themselves. But then again I never want to [...]
