Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Ovechkin Drops The Gloves – 12/12/10

With the Washington Capitals trailing the New York Rangers by a score of 4-0 midway through the second period, Alex Ovechkin knew his team would likely lose the game, but he had no intentions of losing the war as well.  So immediately after taking a run at Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi, the Capitals’ captain dropped the gloves with Brandon Dubinsky and treated us to a spirited bout between two unlikely combatants.

While Ovechkin’s inexperience was quite evident throughout the duration of this fight, his effort and willingness to go for a round were more than enough to award he and Dubinsky with the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Sunday, December 12, 2010.
