Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Carcillo vs. Dowell — 1/23/11
It was the first time the Philadelphia Flyers and the Chicago Blackhawks met since Game Six of last season’s Stanley Cup Finals, and although there wasn’t a championship on the line this time around, there was certainly no love lost between these two bitter rivals. That was evident through the first 40 minutes of action as two fights broke out over that span, including one between the Flyers’ Daniel Carcillo and the Hawks’ Jake Dowell.
After exchanging pleasantries in the corner, Carcillo and Dowell decided to settle their differences with their fists in a bout that showcased numerous punches and even some blood. That was easily enough for us to award these two combatants with a spot on our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Sunday, January 23, 2011.
