Two fights worth spotlighting from last night's action, for very different reasons.
First up is Jared Boll of the Columbus Blue Jackets taking on Krys Barch of the Dallas Stars, who really put on an ironman competition of a fight. The announcers gushed over Barch's "sneaky lefts," one of which knocked Boll on his behind, but this thing is nearly two minutes of bomb-throwing by two weary warriors.
That was a well-matched battle of hockey brawlers. Donald Brashear of the Washington Capitals against 18-year-old rookie defenseman Zach Bogosian of the Atlanta Thrashers? Not so much.
The fight above occurred in the final moments of an embarrassing 7-4 loss for the Capitals in Atlanta. Bogosian actually attempted to land a few blows before smartly tumbling down to the ice.
By far the best part of this fight: The hysterical reaction from the SportSouth announcers, sounding very much like the WWE's Jim Ross when a face wrestler is getting a beat-down from his hated rivals in the loading dock area of the arena. "Someone's gotta get in there ... you don't want Brashear ... oh my goodness!"
