Looks like Cal Clutterbuck had it right. The Isles completed the sweep Saturday night and everyone wants to die.
But life will go on. People will point the finger at Steve Downie for that bizarre penalty he took in the third period, but the game is roughly 60 minutes long. Downie did what everyone reading this would’ve wanted to do, and it was great. The Islanders blow. These...

Dustin Byfuglien should expect a call from the NHL’s Department of Player Safety. After Steve Downie tallied a goal for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Byfuglien checked him awkwardly into the boards. As you might expect, Downie wasn’t too happy and tried to jump Big Buff.
The punishment during the game was a fitting example of more poor officiating as the two men each received two...

Rick Tocchet knows all about being a bad ass. Search him on YouTube and you can find enough scrums to keep you occupied all day. No one would ever accuse Tocchet of being a goon but he began his career mainly known as a fighter. He worked hard to hone his skills and became known as a power forward who also happened to take zero crap. He topped the 30-goal mark four straight years...
During the Philadelphia Flyers-Washington Capitals tilt last Friday, Steve Downie, an agitator of some renown, squared off with Aaron Volpatti in a particularly brutal brawl (video below), at least for Downie. It was Downie’s first game with the Flyers after being traded from the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday, so Downie appeared to show some interest […]The post Steve Downie...
