Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Could This Be The Fight Of The Year? – 11/14/10
Last night’s game between the New York Rangers and the Edmonton Oilers may have provided fans with a plethora of fights, but none were better than the single bout which took place during a game between the Atlanta Thrashers and the Washington Capitals.
Midway through the second period, the Thrashers’ Eric Boulton and the Caps’ John Erskine decided to drop the gloves and exchange punches. But this wasn’t your ordinary “throw a few punches and go to the ground” kind of fight. These two tough guys were delivering bombs to the faces of one another, and somehow neither of them would go down. Not only was it an easy pick for the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Sunday, November 14, but it is also an early candidate for “Fight of the Year.” And at this point, it has my vote.
