(Video): Senators owner Eugene Melnyk goes off on Matt Cooke

Apparently, the owner of the Senators Eugene Melnyk feels the same way I do about Penguins forward Matt Cooke. It looks like the Penguins are putting Cooke on notice. The last game between the Penguins and the Senators is going to be a dandy. It might be a blood bath. "To have him [Karlsson] taken out by a goon [Cooke] it’s just unconscionable," Melnky said. "...

Jonathan Toews vs Joe Thornton fight. Feb 15th 2013

With that tilt, former Fighting Sioux forward Jonathan Toews has been in three fights during his professional career. I guess that's why he wears the "C" and I have to tip my hate the Blackhawks center. Joe Thornton has been known to drop the gloves a little more frequently.

Alexx Privitera suspended by BU for rest of the season

Yeah this Alexx Priviter... As I had mentioned in an earlier blog post when BU played UND – Boston University head coach Jack Parker is big on respect, and doesn't hesitate to suspend a player for disrespecting an opponent or the BU hockey program. It looks like Jack Parker has seen enough of Alexx Privitera for the season. Mike McMahon , The Mack Report --- Boston University...

Final Thoughts on Matt Cooke’s hit on Erik Karlsson

Today, the discussion on twitter and around the hockey blogsphere is the hit that Matt Cooke put on Erik Karlsson.  You can see the hit on the embedded video posted above. The NHL’s department of Player Safety has reviewed the play and will not suspend Matt Cooke. First, I hate Matt Cooke, I think he is a disgusting P.O.S. and if this guy was hurt in a fight or by a check...

Weekend Match-Ups (by Donn)

I can’t believe how tightly packed the standings are, this late in the season.  Only 6 points separate the top 7 teams.  With CC, DU, ND, and SCSU, on their last bye weeks of the year, the other teams have a chance to gain some ground, and move up the standings.  The Huskies have the inside track on the McNaughton Cup, but don’t have too much room for error with six other...

Matt Cooke hit on Erik Karlsson

Penguins forward Matt Cooke is known for his dirty hits, this hit, however is not a dirty or a malicious hit. Hockey is a physical sport and injuries happen from time-to-time.

Jack Edwards with the call of the Bruins comeback

Wow! What a game. I think this is one of the better games that I have watched this season to date. Jack Edwards is right, "get over it, we go to hockey games to get excited." Right? The Boston Bruins scored two goals in a minute and 17 seconds to tie the game. Before losing in a shootout. What can I say about Brad "The Little Ball of Hate" Marchand, he just...

WCHA smartly scraps its “Alaska Plan”

I know that this story is a couple of days old. Last summer, before the WCHA added UAH, the league had decided to go with a cash saving measure known as the “Alaska plan”. Now that the WCHA has add Alabama Huntsville this winter, the league has decided to scrap the “Alaska Plan”. Which was the right move. Looking at this plan from an outsider’s perspective, I think...

Joe Gleason gets hit from behind by Brian O'Rourke

props to @ajf727... I know the WCHA doesn't like to ref the game after it's over, but Omaha's Brian O'Rourke got away with a dirty, free, bush league hit on Joe Gleason. There is no way you can defend this hit, it was totally unnecessary. In my opinion O'Rourke should be sitting out the next game that he's playing in. This is the type of hit that college...

Just Because I can... (RW77)

and enjoy taking flak, I'd like to post (hopefully) a short video I took of the boys coming out of the chute at TD Ameritrade Park. Unfortunately I was unable to get to the proper side of the walkway and my batteries ran out when they were coming off the ice after the victory.  So, best I could do but it was fun to be so close to the action.
