Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Two From The Bruins vs. Sens — 1/31/12
If the Ottawa Senators want to compete in the Northeast Division, they have to show that they can hang in there with the defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins. During last night’s meeting between the two teams, the Sens showed that they can go toe-to-toe with Boston both on the scoreboard, and on the fight card. Unfortunately for them, they would still come up just short in both areas of the game.
Despite holding a 3-1 lead late in the second period, Ottawa couldn’t hold on as the Bruins scored three unanswered goals to earn the 4-3 victory. And to make matters worse, Chris Neil and Zenon Konopka were both dealt close defeats in their respective bouts with Shawn Thornton and Adam McQuaid. They did, however, earn themselves a spot on the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Tuesday, January 31, 2012.
