Time to catch up on the hockey fights that happened earlier this week. On Sunday there were two hockey fights. In the Blackhawks-Rangers game Martin Lapointe put a pounding on Ryan Hollweg. Decision to Lapointe in that fight. In the Sharks-Stars game, Kyle McLaren layed out Hagman with a good hard check. A little later Stars' tough guy Krys Barch challenged McLaren and they went at it. McLaren looked to get the better slightly in that one. I would give a slight edge to McLaren in that fight.
On Monday there was only one hockey fight but it was a spirited one. In the Bruins-Flyers game, Paul Mara and Mike Richards got into a scrum. Then later in the game, off a faceoff after a Bruins' goal, they throw down the gloves and go at it. They both exchanged some good punches. I would give Mara the edge, maybe call this a draw. Either way it was a good fight between two guys who don't fight that much, although this was Richards second fight in as many games. Watch the Mara-Richards fight below.
