Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Coburn vs. Boyle — 4/3/11
The New York Rangers continued their push for the playoffs yesterday afternoon against the Philadelphia Flyers, and once again they came out fighting, both literally and figuratively. Brian Boyle was the one doing the real fighting, as he challenged the Flyers’ Braydon Coburn following a questionable hit on Ruslan Fedotenko.
Boyle would go on to lose this fight, but he should be commended for his intentions. As for his teammates, they would go on to win their “fight,” 3-2 in a shootout.
Here is a look at Boyle’s battle with Coburn, which earns our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Sunday, April 3, 2011.
