Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Kropp vs. Rinaldo — 12/7/11
After allowing a few players to take runs at their goalies over the course of the past month, the Buffalo Sabres have earned a reputation among some NHL players as being a rather soft team. They were looking to shed that reputation last night when they took on the Philadelphia Flyers, and it appears as though they have done just that, thanks in large part to Corey Tropp.
Tropp was playing in only the 12th game of his NHL career last night, but you may recognize him as one of the two Michigan Spartans players who brutally attacked a member of the Michigan Wolverines back in January 2009. Tropp was delivering more punishment last night, although this time it was via a fight, rather than a cheap-shot, as he dropped the gloves with Zac Rinaldo and earned himself a spot on the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Wednesday, December 7, 2011.
