Breaking: Zack Smith’s Wrist

After being one of the healthiest teams over the past season and a half, the hockey gods have turned their attention to the Ottawa Senators.

In his fifth shift of the first period in last night’s 5-3 loss to the Los Angeles Kings, Senators forward Chris Neil was rocked by a Brayden McNabb check along the right side wall. Looking at the video below, it kind of looks like Neil’s knee gets tweaked a little bit as his body absorbs the hit. Neil immediately left the ice under his own power, but a return to the game...

Hockey fights of the week

The 2014-15 season may be remembered as the season in which the sport of hockey pushed away from fighting. Players are still dropping the mitts, but they are doing so at a greatly reduced rate. Last season we typically were reviewing 20-30 fights each week and now we’re lucky if we have 15 or more. While disappointing, we’re lucky to still be treated to a few outstanding scraps...

Who Ranks Second Among Active Players In Penalty Minutes Behind Ottawa’s Chris Neil?

Ottawa Senators winger Chris Neil is no stranger to the penalty box. The veteran forward is one of the NHL’s toughest customers, and he has the resume to prove it. He’s gone toe to toe with some of the biggest and baddest brawlers over the course of his career. In doing so, he’s piled up a ton of penalty minutes. In fact, Neil currently is the active leader in penalty minutes...

Anti-Fighting Cabal Applauds AHL's New fighting Rules

#493214087 / gettyimages.comI don’t think any of us should be shocked that the Anti-Fighting Cabal at the Hockey News is applauding the AHL’s new Fighting Rules. They've never saw a fight that they liked. Looking at the number of fights in the AHL, the NHL's minor league definitely has more fighting majors than the NHL. It's a proven fact. Moreover, I have never seen a fan...

Rangers Talk Neil Hit

After last night’s game, Marc Staal was so infuriated with Chris Neil’s late hit he refused to speak with the press as he was too livid to talk. Staal, who is fine physically, was assessed a double minor for roughing after he jumped Neil in response to the predatory hit that was somehow unpenalized. The extra minor on Staal destroyed any possibility of the Rangers tying the game...

On the "Energy Line" and Understanding Player Usage

With the stinging pain of back-to-back losses in Alberta fresh in their minds, many fans have bemoaned head coach Paul Maclean's ice time allocation. "Interesting" is a euphemism I'd use to describe his TOI distribution in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Flames. Others chose to word it differently. The main source of fans' disdain is the healthy ice time total Maclean awarded the line...
