|Comments: After a lackluster first period, Focht tries to wake the Pens up by goading Rupp into a fight. Focht grabbed Rupp's stick as he skated away making it clear what he wanted to do. They drop em and squareoff. While skating Rupp suprises Focht with a left to the throat as he skates backwards. They both have the jerseys with their lefts. Rupp has his right cocked wide and awkardly. Rupp, unaware of were he is, slams backward into the boards as they both miss with rights. Rupp, with his head down, throws a blind right into Focht's neck. Focht apears to land a decent uppercut on Rupp, snapping his head and bringing him upright, then Rupp misses a ducking Focht. Focht throws five weak uppercuts into Rupp's armpit while Rupp misses two more overhand rights. They twirl, Rupp again has his right cocked way behind his back, and Focht throws another weak uppercut while Rupp jersey-jabs him with his left. Focht does likewise, pushing Rupp's face with his left four times. Rupp finally throws an overhand right looking to connect on Focht's temple, and as Focht throws a right that misses, Rupp lands an off-balance, but head-snapping right to Focht's jaw. Rupp's completely off-balance and is hunched over facing away from Focht now who just pushes him down to the ice.
