Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Lucic vs. Kaleta — 2/8/12
The Boston Bruins and the Buffalo Sabres engaged in a physical affair last night that yielded a total of 90 penalty minutes and three fights. The best bout of the evening took place just over 12 minutes into the first period, as the Patrick Kaleta was looking to get some additional retribution on the Bruins’ Milan Lucic after the latter took a run at Ryan Miller earlier in the season, resulting in a concussion for the Sabres’ goaltender.
Kaleta didn’t exactly get the retribution he was seeking. Instead, what he got was a few punches to the face and a spot on our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Wednesday, February 8, 2012.
