Don Cherry Challenges Leafs’ GM Brian Burke To A Fight On HNIC’s Coach’s Corner (Video)
Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Brown vs. Staubitz — 3/3/12
Despite the fact that both teams are sitting near the bottom of the NHL’s standings, the rivalry between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens is as fierce as ever. That was evident during Saturday night’s game between the two clubs, as a hit by the Canadiens’s Brad Staubitz on Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf resulted in an entertaining bout between Staubitz and Mike Brown seconds later.
With Leafs’ head coach Randy Carlyle making his first appearance behind Toronto’s bench, Brown wanted to make a good impression on his former coach (the two spent some time together during their days in Anaheim). He did just that, as he and Staubitz earned themselves a spot on the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Saturday, March 3, 2012.
