Biz Nasty Busy vs Blues
There were 10 games in the NHL Tuesday night, but only one saw the mitts hit the ice to garner a fighting major.
Phoenix Coyotes enforcer Paul Bissonnette took on tough St. Louis Blues youngster Ryan Reaves early in the first period. The fight was short, but some good haymakers were tossed each way in an entertaining scrap.
It was Reaves' third fighting major in the past two weeks since being called back up from Peoria. The Habs' Paul Mara and the Kings' Kyle Clifford were his other opponents in that time-frame.
Bissonnette was at it again in the second period. Biz sent Roman Polak hard into the boards with a big check and Blues' defenseman Tyson Strachan took on Bissonnette in defense of his teammate. It was another short fight, but an intense and entertaining one nonetheless.
