Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Hordichuk vs. Rupp – 12/22/10
The Pittsburgh Penguins’ Michael Rupp decided to give the knuckles of fellow tough guy Deryk Engelland a day off last night as he stepped in and took on Florida Panthers’ enforcer Darcy Hordichuk. However, he was probably regretting that decision after taking some vicious rights from Hordichuk, including a final shot that sent him to the ice and ended this bout.
Unfortunately for Hordichuk and his Panthers teammates, his victory was not enough to spark a comeback as they fell to the Pens by a score of 5-2. It was, however, enough to earn him a spot on the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Wednesday, December 22, 2010.
