The NHL’s Top 5 2011/12 Rookies After The First Quarter
Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Simmonds vs. Prust — 11/26/11
Brandon Prust of the New York Rangers had already dropped his gloves once in the first period when he and Wayne Simmonds began exchanging words ten minutes into the game. But that earlier bout against the Philadelphia Flyers’ Zac Rinaldo didn’t stop Prust from dropping his gloves for a second time with Simmonds.
It turned out to be a good decision for the Rangers’ enforcer, as he would land the better blows and provide his team with a much needed spark. And most importantly, his second bout would earn him a spot on the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Saturday, November 26, 2011.
