Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Simmonds vs. Martin — 3/15/12

martin vs simmondsThe New York Islanders were having a tough time holding their own on the scoreboard against the Philadelphia Flyers last night, as they found themselves trailing by a score of 3-0 before scoring two goals late in the third period.  However, they weren’t having the same problem in the fighting department, thanks to some fine work from the fists of Matt Martin.

After watching one of his teammates go down following a hit from Martin, the Flyers’ Wayne Simmonds decided to step in.  He would put forth a valiant effort, but Martin would earn the decision in this bout, which was a worthy recipient of the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Thursday, March 15, 2012.
