Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Cowen vs. Nokelainen — 3/14/12
The Montreal Canadiens’ Petteri Nokelainen doesn’t do much fighting on the ice, and we now know why after watching him take a flurry of uppercuts during a bout with the Ottawa Senators’ Jared Cowen last night.
When the two combatants dropped their gloves during the latter stages of the opening period, it appeared as though Cowen had the upper hand, and those looks were not deceiving, as he used his height advantage to control Nokelainen throughout the fight. Unfortunately for the Sens, they were not able to use their skill advantage to earn the win, but Cowen’s performance with his gloves off does earn him a spot on the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Wednesday, March 14, 2012.
