Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Chimera vs. Mitchell — 1/9/12

mitchell vs. chimeraWith the Los Angeles Kings leading the Washington Capitals by a score of 4-1 midway through the third period, frustration was beginning to mount for several of the Caps players.  Among those growing increasingly frustrated was Jason Chimera, who eventually reached his boiling point and decided to drop his gloves with Kings’ defenceman Willie Mitchell following a hit on Chimera’s teammate, Joel Ward.

It wasn’t a thrilling bout, but on a night that saw few fists being thrown throughout the NHL, it was an easy choice for our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Monday, January 9, 2012.
