Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Beleskey vs. Tropp — 2/29/12
Last night’s game between the Buffalo Sabres and the Anaheim Ducks provided a total of four fights, and they all occurred within the final five minutes of the game. However, the first altercation between Corey Tropp of the Sabres and Matt Beleskey of the Ducks was the only one that we can really consider to be a “full-fledged fight,” even though it barely lasted 10 seconds. As for the other three altercations, we’ll simply classify those as “aggressive skirmishes.”
Beleskey’s dropped the gloves with Tropp in an effort to spark his team, as they seemed lifeless heading into the final minutes of the game. But it didn’t work, as the Ducks remained snake bitten en route to the 2-0 loss. Despite the outcome, Beleskey still earns a well deserved spot on the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Wednesday, February 29, 2012.
