Colton Orr and Derek Engelland have a rivalry that dates all the way back to 2000, when they first dropped the gloves as youngsters in the Western Hockey League (WHL), and then later in the AHL and NHL. As you can see from the video above, that rivalry still burns pretty good to this day. Engelland has a history of getting the better of Orr (see here and here) but this latest bout was about as even (and epic) as they come. Did you miss the NHL or what?

Colton Orr And Deryk Engeland Awesome Hockey Brawl

Colton Orr and Deryk Engeland really like to fight each other. They had a few good brawls back in 2010 and tonight they continued it with a near minute and a half long boxing match.  This was one hell of a fight. It looks like Engeland got the worst of it.

Can the Penguins win the Stanley Cup?

The shortened season that the NHL has so “graciously” provided us, is going to provide for a quick, fast paced season, and one in which you had better have some star power providing some punch, or this season will fly right on by without you even getting a chance to gain some momentum. Usually a team at this point in a non-shortened season, is learning itself and figuring out...

Crosby Back To Normal

from Chris Johnston now of Sportsnet, What stands out most during a few days around the Penguins in the early stages of the 48-game season is how significantly Crosby's narrative has changed.

Islanders' four-goal third period downs Maple Leafs

TORONTO -- New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano gave the Toronto Maple Leafs credit for their fast start in racing to a 3-1 lead after the first period on Thursday night.
