Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Engelland vs. Thorburn — 10/17/11

engelland vs thorburnGoing forward, we expect it will be tough for any of the NHL’s combatants to match the performance put forth by Cam Janssen and Brian McGrattan over the weekend.

Despite giving it their best shot, Deryk Engelland of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Chris Thorburn of the Winnipeg Jets couldn’t place themselves among the early nominees for “Fight of the Year,” but their bout was entertaining enough to get the Winnipeg crowd on their feet, and it also earned them the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Monday, October 17, 2011.

Here is a look at their fight.
