is one of the things that I like about the NHL. The players sort things out on
the ice and settle things like men.

a dirty and dangerous hit. Hossa suffered a concussion and Torres was suspended

Step aside, Barry Melrose. Mike Smith’s new mullet may be the most ridiculous hairstyle to hit the NHL. My first thought when I saw this photo was, “When did Mike Smith have the time to get drunk enough to let someone do this to his head?” However, upon further investigation, it appears that this was a sober decision and that Smith is actually quite fond of his new ‘do. It’s...
The Chicago Blackhawks Marian Hossa took a nasty illegal hit from the Phoenix Coyotes‘ Raffi Torres in last year’s NHL playoffs. The brutal that left him motionless on the ice. As you can see after the jump, Torres left his feet for the hit so he’s likely going to face a suspension. He’s a repeat offender, so he could face 10 games.
Brendan Shanahan suspended Torres before...
Everyone wanted to see how the Blackhawks would perform in their first game against the Seattle Phoenix Coyotes with Raffi Torres in the lineup. Chicago answered the bell with their most dominant performance of the season.

Hockey is a funny sport.
10 months ago, Phoenix goalie Mike Smith and his flowing locks were the toast of the game. These days, Smith is a complete sieveâalbeit still possessing his tonsorial splendor.
The Blackhawk Blitzkrieg through the Western Conference continued last night in Glendale, AZ, with a 6-2 beatdown administered to the Coyotes, Phoenixâ...
GLENDALE, Ariz. The Sharks will have had four days to stew on back-to-back losses by the time the Coyotes take the ice Saturday for a matinee meeting at HP Pavilion. San Jose wasnt beaten in regulation in its first eight games before the Ducks and Blackhawks stalled what had been a torrid start with 2-1 and 5-3 wins in Anaheim and San Jose, respectively.
Will that mean a more...
PARTY IN THE BACK
Prior to this week, Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith had been growing out his hair for a very long time. As you can see from the photo above on the left, he had one of the raddest hairstyles in the NHL for all of last season and into this year. Many fans will be disappointed to hear that Smith recently cut his hair — until they see his new haircut. The photo above on the right...

The key for the Hawks here is to guard against a letdown, after Tuesday nightâs big win in San Jose. The Coyotes, unlike the Sharks, will be well-rested tonight, and are coming off two straight victories.
For some reason, well theyâre a pretty...

The NHL wasted no time in rescinding the match penalty handed out to Sharks forward Andrew Desjardins for his crushing open-ice hit on Jamal Mayers of the Blackhawks on Tuesday.
As the rulebook states:
“The Referee, at his discretion, may assess a match penalty if, in his judgment, the player attempted to or deliberately injured his opponent with an illegal check to the head....
