Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Stewart vs. Stuart — 1/23/12

stewart vs stuartThose of you who do not like the fact that every hard hit in the game of hockey these days is often followed by an unnecessary fight probably won’t be very big fans of this bout.

It occurred during last night’s game between the St. Louis Blues and the Detroit Red Wings, as Blues forward Chris Stewart retaliated to a hit by Brad Stuart on his teammate, Alex Pietrangelo, by dropping the gloves and fighting the Red Wings defenseman.  In the end, Steward would earn a total of 17 minutes in penalties, a game misconduct, and a spot on the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Monday, January 23, 2012.
