If you don’t like Jarome Iginla then we’re not going to be friends. I love that he catches Ryan Clowe off guard with a nice left to start this dance, and then weaves in and out, switching hands for the best throwdown of the night.
Wednesday night’s NHL action featured more fights than games, but saw the return of heavyweight knuck-chucker Derek “The Boogeyman” Boogaard to NHL fisticuffs. The Princeton Puncher George Parros fell to 0-2 on the season after getting the swinging treatment from Dallas’ Krys Barch, and Nathan Horton (although I haven’t seen it) racked up a butt-load of PIMs with a couple of scraps as well.
Boogaard appeared in two previous games before last night, but hadn’t come across anyone crazy enough to drop the gloves with until David Koci made the mistake in Minnesota’s win over Colorado.
George Parros appears to have lost a step in his enforcing abilities, although he did have hand surgery in the offseason. He’s sloppy fighter anyway. Parros signed a 3-year extension with the Ducks last season, had he not he would undoubtedly be a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs along with all the other knuckleheads.
Anyhoots, with nothing of substance to give you this morning I’m going with Scott Walker vs. Brendan Witt as the best tussle of the night in the Isles’ first win. Witt’s hair is ridiculous, but I love it.
This is awesome. Justin Sawyer of the Oklahoma City Blazers and Brett Angel of the ahh, … teal team drop their gloves early in the first period of this February 3rd game in some fucking league somewhere. (CHL)
They then dance for second time early in the third period, and for a third time about seven minutes later.
The commentators in leagues like the CHL love to call scraps, you can tell by the way they refer to guys “working the body”.
I actually watched Brett Angel play his university hockey at Acadia, the guy is like 6’10″ on blades and that’s about it. The noted pants-shitter wasn’t a bad player once he learned how to skate, in his third year. I really hope I never see him again, because thanks to me you can now Google his name along with “shitting your pants”.
