Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Downie vs. Hendricks – 1/4/11

It wasn’t the best of bouts, but with only one fight taking place in the NHL last night, we had no choice but to make this scrap between the Tampa Bay Lightning’s Steve Downie and the Washington Capitals’ Matt Hendricks our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Tuesday, January 4, 2011.

Had Hendricks been able to keep his jersey from getting over his head, this fight may have lasted a little longer than ten seconds.  And judging by their ensuing exchange of words in the penalty box, they probably could have used that extra couple of seconds to settle their differences.
