Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Westgarth And Gaustad Exchange Uppercuts – 11/19/10

We see plenty of fights take place within the game of hockey, but rarely is the uppercut utilized in any of them.  Both the Sabres’ Paul Gaustad and the Kings’ Kevin Westgarth showed us just how effective such a punch can be from close range when they dropped the gloves during last night’s game at the HSBC Arena.

While Gaustad should be credited with beginning the exchange of uppercuts, as he landed three solid shots on the chin of his opponent, Westgarth was able to respond with a hard uppercut of his own before both combatants went to the ice during this edition of the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night.”
