Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Sens And Flyers Give Us Three Simultaneous Fights – 1/20/11
When three fights take place all at once, how can we not feature it as our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night”?
With the Philadelphia Flyers leading the Ottawa Senators by a score of 6-2 late in the third period, the outcome was no longer in question but players from both teams were still looking to make things interesting for the fans in attendance at the Wells Fargo Center.
Perhaps the most entertaining bout saw an under-sized Chris Neil stand toe-to-toe with a much larger Jody Shelley. Also impressive was the fight between Jarkko Ruutu and Scott Hartnell. And then there was Sean O’Donnell’s uninspired effort against Matt Carkner, which was rather disappointing, but earns a spot in the limelight based on its timing.
