Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Gleason vs. Engelland — 1/17/12
Last night’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Pittsburgh Penguins treated us to one of the best fights of the 2011-12 NHL season, and a strong candidate for “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Year.” And we nearly missed it all, as the game cut to a commercial seconds before Tim Gleason and Deryk Engelland dropped their gloves and exchanged rapid fire punches to each others’ faces.
Thankfully, the Roots Sports telecast provided us with footage of the entire tilt when they returned from their commercial break. And all it took was one glimpse of this bout to realize that it is a worthy recipient of the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Tuesday, January 17, 2012.
