Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Lucic vs. Vandermeer — 2/27/11
Most organizations came into today’s NHL trade deadline looking to improve some aspect of their team, whether it was scoring, defense or any other area. As for the Boston Bruins, one area they didn’t need to improve on was team toughness. The B’s already have a plethora of tough guys, including Shawn Thornton, Adam McQuaid and Gregory Campbell. They also have a few skilled players that can drop the gloves as well.
Two of those players showed off their versatility last night as Nathan Horton delivered a knockout punch in a fight with the Oilers’ Theo Peckham, while Milan Lucic dropped the gloves with Jim Vandermeer in a bout that was worthy of our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Sunday, February 27, 2011.
Here is a look at the Lucic vs. Vandermeer fight, followed by Horton’s one-punch.
