While I haven’t been able to find an “official” video of the hit (click here for a Youtube version), Buffalo Sabres defenseman Shaone Morrisonn delivered a check on Atlanta Thrashers forward Bryan Little that left the former 30-goal scorer with a concussion and facial lacerations. Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution passed along the report.…

We’ve speculated that Ondrej Pavelec might start for the first time since that scary collapsing incident (and the concussions that resulted from it) this week, but it seems just about official. Chris Vivlamore reports that he will indeed start instead of Chris Mason tonight. Mason won his last two starts, including Friday’s game against the…

Sure, Halloween is technically on Sunday, but tonight is the REAL Halloween for many. Chances are you’re having your most raucous night of the “Halloweekend” tonight without the threat of work or school.

Sergei Bobrovsky and the Philadelphia Flyers beat Marc-Andre Fleury and the Pittsburgh Penguins for the second time in the Consol Energy Center, only allowing one goal in last night’s game. The first video (above) shows Bobrovsky making an outstanding save on Sidney Crosby, who was primed to shoot from a “goal scorer’s spot.” The second…

As I wrote last night, things are working well for the Atlanta Thrashers and Dustin Byfuglien so far. He has nine points in 10 games, including four goals and a whopping three game-winners already. He made the shaky Buffalo Sabres defense look silly in overtime, deking his way through traffic to score a beauty against…

The New Jersey Devils haven’t been themselves this year, but for at least one night, they played like the Devils of old. They won a low-scoring, low-shot game over the Anaheim Ducks last night, in one of those contests that someone had to win. New Jersey 2, Anaheim 1 This outcome basically brings the Ducks…

I’ve heard of scoring in bunches, but the Oilers really took the cake last night. In the span of a minute (OK, 1:09), Edmonton scored three goals. Ales Hemsky scored first, then Jordan Eberle really dazzled and Sam Gagner finished things off to give the team a 4-1 lead. The Oilers eventually beat the defending…

Many people questioned the kind of impact Dustin Byfuglien would have for the Atlanta Thrashers, but he’s been a huge force for the team so far this season.

Brent Johnson is 4-0-1 while big money starter Marc-Andre Fleury is an abysmal 1-5. Is it early season luck or should Johnson be given more playing time? Click read more for an in-depth look at the two Penguins’ goalies.

I’ve said it before when discussing the many charitable promotions hockey players take part in, but it never gets old to see professional athletes take the time – rather than just spending money – to help others. You’ll see these kind of events pick up around Thanksgiving, Christmas and more traditionally charitable holidays, but it’s…

Good news for hockey fans whose hockey-related needs are covered by regional Fox networks in many markets: satellite TV providers Dish Network and Fox came to an agreement on a deal after failing to reach a compromise on October 1. Dish Network Corp. customers will continue to be able to watch baseball’s World Series on…

Remember the wicked hit that Minnesota’s Antti Miettinen took from Kings forward Dustin Brown that saw Brown ejected from the game but not suspended? Turns out Miettinen may have gotten a concussion from that after all.
