For a brief moment in yesterday’s Blue Jackets-Lightning third period, veteran Tampa defenseman Dan Girardi brought back a lost art. As Columbus’s Matt Calvert focused on bringing the puck into the offensive zone, Girardi laid him out in the middle of the ice, delivering a clean shoulder check with enough power to…
Don’t you even think about bringing that weak shit near Alex Buque’s goal, or he’ll turn you into dust.
The Sydney Sevens Cup is going on down in Australia right now, and the United States went up against World Cup holders New Zealand yesterday. The U.S. has former Olympic-level sprinter Carlin Isles on their squad, and despite his pedigree as the “world’s fastest rugby player,” he got rocked by New Zealand’s Augustine…
Last night, Dallas's Antoine Roussel wiped an entire pane of glass with Phil Kessel's tumbling form. We love a good, clean hit that sends a player flying like someone messed with the sliders in a video game.
This morning, Jay Glazer dropped some video of an unnoticed, off-the-field hit from last Sunday's Titans-Ravens game. The clip shows Titans tight end Chase Coffman going out of bounds after an interception, and knocking down a Ravens assistant.
Tom Wilson of the Washington Capitals took Flyers forward Brayden Schenn out of the game with a brutal hit that sent Schenn flying into the boards, injuring him.
Ryan McDonagh flipped Corey Perry into the Rangers' bench twice in the span of 12 seconds during Monday night's Ducks-Rangers game. What's the saying? Flip me once, shame on you. Flip me twice, my teammates come over to help.
This is almost not fair. Hawaii quarterback Taylor Graham is listed at 6'5", 235. He has five inches and 35 pounds on his prey, USC cornerback Kevon Seymour. Still: head on a swivel, Trojans.
Ichiro Suzuki recorded the 4,000th hit of a career that spanned nine years in Japan and 13 here in the States tonight at Yankee Stadium. It was a typical Ichiro slap and he did it off a knuckleballer.
Noted Buffalo dirtball Patrick Kaleta has been somewhat quiet recently—slipping all the way to a career-low 10th on the most-hated players list, but he's angling to get back among the leaders after this brutal cross-check that sent New York's Brad Richards headfirst into the boards.
We say it all the time: the Stanley Cup Playoffs are the best postseason in sports. Tonight's Capitals-Rangers game is headed to the second overtime, a fitting outcome in this year's OT-happy postseason, but the extended game hasn't dialed down any of the intensity.
http://youtu.be/inncr93Uio A fight broke out at a Quebec "beer league" in the north shore of Montreal last week, and it escalated until a player brought down a logger-style two-handed hockey slash over his opponent's head. JT from 25Stanley.com writes that the league is not pro, and "not even close to [being]…
In the second period of tonight's Bruins-Habs game, with Montreal leading 4-0, Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara delivered this blow to Montreal wing Max Pacioretty, riding him headfirst into the stanchion between the benches.
