Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — White vs. Boychuk — 3/7/11
There was only one fight last night in the NHL, but it was a dandy. And it shouldn’t surprise anyone to hear that it came from the game between the Montreal Canadiens and the Boston Bruins. The last time these two teams met there were 12 fighting majors handed out, one of which was named our “Frozen fisticuffs Fight of the Night” that evening. This time around there were not as many fists flying, but when the gloves did come off, the combatants made the most of it.
Those combatants we speak of are Johnny Boychuk of the Bruins and Ryan White of the Canadiens. This was the reason the Habs called up White from the AHL, and he did not disappoint, exacting some revenge on the Bruins and earning a spot on our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Tuesday, March 8, 2011.
