Catching up on hockey fights earlier this week

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.
