Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Van Riemsdyk To The Rescue — 2/15/11

We can’t really credit either the Philadelphia Flyers’ James Van Riemsdyk or the Tampa Bay Lightning’s Randy Jones for providing us with an exciting bout during their game last night.  Fact of the matter is they didn’t.  However, we can credit Van Riemsdyk for sticking up for his teammate after fellow Flyer Claude Giroux was on the receiving end of a somewhat questionable hit from the Lightning defender.

It was Van Riemsdyk’s first career fight, and although it wasn’t a very entertaining one, his intent and courage to stand up for a fallen teammate earns him a spot on the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Tuesday, February 15, 2011.
