Florida Panthers fourth-liner Krys Barch dropped the gloves with Boston Bruins powerforward Milan Lucic. The fight was even, but the Bruins weren’t going to let that go. Lucic can hold his own in a fight, and even has a slight size & reach advantage. But the mismatch wasn’t in fighting ability. Barch has 12 career goals. Lucic has 19 this season.
Shawn Thornton found Barch mid-way through the second period and the two had a long bout with a lot of grappling.
Both fights were voted virtual draws. Barch has the highest percentage of votes, but well under 50% in both instances.
