James Engquist, the fan grabbed by Canucks forward Rick Rypien, isn’t happy with the punishment handed down by the NHL and says if he did that at his job he’d be fired. Welcome to reality, James.

If you’re a recently deposed former backup goalie in the NHL who was waived, what’s your next step for work? Turns out, playing in Europe is the answer.

Canucks forward Rick Rypien gets a six-game suspension, but we’re left feeling that that wasn’t enough.

With Canucks forward Rick Rypien’s hearing in New York City with the NHL front office underway today to decide what his punishment for grabbing a fan during a game will be, it’s about time we caught up with what you think his punishment should be. We polled you guys recently to find out what you…

We’re doubling our pleasure here because it’s just that good. The save of the night comes from overtime between Pittsburgh and Nashville where Pascal Dupuis bailed out his goalie Marc-Andre Fleury from losing in embarrassing fashion, preventing Cody Franson from stuffing home a loose puck off a J.P. Dumont shot. Shortly after that, Kris Letang…

Congratulations to everyone reading this, you’ve made it to Friday. Your reward for making to the weekend? An evening filled with hockey, five games worth. As always, here’s the schedule with all times Eastern. 7:00 pm Calgary @ Columbus I don’t suppose too many folks will be eyeballing the attendance in Columbus will they? After…

While there may not have been too many people there to see it, the highlights of the goals of the night belong to Phoenix’s Lee Stempniak for bagging a hat trick in the Coyotes 4-2 win over the Kings. It was Stempniak’s first career hat trick and we’ll not hear anything about the third goal…

Here’s your wrap up on a busy night in the NHL and some of the big names came out to play, meanwhile no one came out to watch hockey in Arizona.

Johan Franzen’s return to the ice following a slight concussion last week turned out to be a pretty good one for the Detroit Red Wings. Franzen’s goal midway through the third period proved to be the game-winning goal for the Wings in their 4-2 win over Calgary. Franzen did it in an interesting way though,…

The Islanders and Lightning needed overtime to settle things and Matt Moulson was credited with the game-winning goal in overtime as he apparently got one slightly past Lightning netminder Dan Ellis. The goal was initially waived off by the referee who stood right over the play, but replay showed the puck apparently getting across enough…

If the fans in Arizona are excited about the prospect of keeping the Coyotes in town, they’ve got a very funny way of showing it.

They seem to mix together about as well as oil and water do, but cheerleaders are coming to Edmonton whether they like it or not.
Oct 20, 2010, 6:16 PM EST
The fan who was attacked by Canucks forward Rick Rypien speaks out about what happened and throws around the idea of filing a lawsuit.
Oct 20, 2010, 5:19 PM EST
Good news and bad news for the Red Wings as they get Johan Franzen back to action, but lose Kris Draper.
Oct 20, 2010, 4:20 PM EST
If anything else, last night proved that even in a light night of action that anything can happen. Four more games hit the schedule tonight so let’s just hope that if anyone is hitting someone else that it all happens on the ice so we can avoid anything more unseemly to discuss further. As always,…

Senators GM Bryan Murray has a funny way of motivating his team – he threatens to trade them to Minnesota if they can’t get it together.
Oct 20, 2010, 2:08 PM EST
The NHL has handed down at least their initial word about how they’re going to handle things with Vancouver forward Rick Rypien and his grabby hands towards a Minnesota fan. The league has suspended Rypien indefinitely pending a hearing. Given what happened last night in St. Paul and the fact the Canucks play again tonight…

SO it was a bad night for the Canucks losing to the Minnesota Wild 6-2, but they at least had a lead for a little while as Henrik Sedin connected with his brother Daniel on this beauty of a pass to put the Canucks up 1-0 less than a minute into the game. The lead…

Flames goalie Miikka Kiprusoff was stellar in his 34-save shutout of the Nashville Predators, and his stop in the second period was perhaps the best of the bunch.
Oct 20, 2010, 2:36 AM EST
Canucks forward Rick Rypien has the support of his teammates after going after a fan in Minnesota, but that’s about all he’ll get as he’s looking at getting a stiff suspension from the NHL. But just how many games? We have a stab in the dark.
