Saturday was fight night

Last night there were 12 fights in total. First, in the Flyers-Lightning game, Riley Cote and Andre Roy dropped the gloves and had a good fight. I gave that one a draw, maybe an edge to Roy. I posted the video in this post below. In the Kings-Avalanche game, Raitis Ivanans man handled Cody McLeod in their fight.

In the Capitals-Senators game, Donald Brashear turned down Brian McGrattan to a fight, but at the end of the second period Brashear challenged Chris Neil and they fought and Brashear just over-powered Neil.

In the Rangers-Maple Leafs game, enforcers Colton Orr and Wade Belak dropped the gloves with each other once again. Belak started out early with the edge (mostly because he instigated the fight) and then Orr came back and got Belak to go down. I'm giving the edge to Orr in this one. Watch it below in this post.

In the Devils-Islanders game, there were three fights including one surprise fight. The surprise fight was Mike Mottau vs Mike Comrie. Later in the game, we had David Clarkson vs Bill Guerin and Mike Rupp vs Andy Sutton.

In the Bruins-Thrashers game, there were two fights and both were ok, nothing great. First there was Jeremy Reich vs Chris Thorburn. Then after the Reich-Thorburn fight, off the next faceoff Shawn Thornton and Eric Boulton dropped the gloves and had a good square off but it didn't last long as they lost their balance and went down. In the Hurricanes-Blue Jackets game, Tim Gleason and Jared Boll fought.

In the Ducks-Flames game there were two fights. First there was Travis Moen vs Dion Phaneuf but it wasn't much of a fight as they fell down too soon. Second was late in the game, Corey Perry and Eric Nystrom fought while a big scrum was going on.
