On January 30th in the Sharks-Flames game, Flames' veteran Owen Nolan scored three goals and dominated a fight against Sharks' Mike Grier. The veteran can still throw them so watch out. Watch the fight below.

Jarkko Ruutu knees Ilya Kovalchuk, then fights Steve McCarthy

On January 30th, in the Penguins-Thrashers game, Thrashers' All-Star Ilya Kovalchuk was kneed by Penguins' agitator Jarkko Ruutu and then Thrashers' defenseman Steve McCarthy went after him and tried to pound the ducking away Ruutu. Hopefully Kovalchuk isn't out for a long time.

McCarthy said: "First of all, Ruutu's running at your best player, whether it was a clean hit or not, and it wasn't," McCarthy said. "It hits knee on knee, hurts one of our best players, and that can't happen."

And did you think it was a cheap shot? Yeah, I did," McCarthy said.

Ruutu disagreed. "I barely hit him. I didn't change direction. I just went for a hit," Ruutu told reporters. "I got five minutes for fighting, and I didn't even throw a punch."

Watch the video of this hit and fight below.

Colton Orr vs Wade Brookbank 2x

On January 29th, the Rangers and Hurricanes met up for the first time since Colton Orr layed out Matt Cullen with a huge hit I thought there may be some fights in this one and it did not disappoint. Colton Orr and Wade Brookbank dropped the gloves twice. Their first fight was the better and Orr got the win in that one as after the fight Brookbank had some cuts and red marks on his face. The second fight wasn't much but it was a fight. Watch them both below.

Krys Barch vs Andrew Peters

On January 24th Stars' Krys Barch stood up for his teammate Steve Ott and took on the Sabres' heavyweight Andrew Peters. I don't know what Peters was waiting for, it seemed like he held back for a reason, but Barch kept throwing short jersey jabs which seemed to work on Peters and throw the occassional big punch. Barch gets the decision in this one. Watch it below.

Cote knockdowns McGrattan

Sunday night we had a heavyweight bout with Senators' Brian McGrattan and Flyers' Riley Cote drop the gloves and had a good fight with both guys landing a few bombs. But McGrattan looked to get nailed and then lost his balance and went down to the ice. Then McGrattan got up, looked to favor his shoulder and skate to the locker room. Hopefully he's not out for a long time. Cote with a big win over one of the top current NHL fighters. Watch the fight below.

Thursday night we got to see a slugfest between two of the best agitators in the game today, Darcy Tucker and Jarkko Ruutu.
