Sens, Flyers Brawl Again
It all started with under eight minutes left in the third. Claude Giroux throttled Jesse Winchester with a hit and Chris Neil promptly came across the ice and jumped on top of Giroux. Winchester and Jeff Carter were the only pairing that resulted in a fight, with neither landing anything of note.
Minutes later, Giroux was asked to answer the bell by Nick Foligno and obliged. The two engaged in a spirited, even scrap. On the following faceoff, each team brought out the big guns and a battle ensued.
Jarkko Ruutu and Scott Hartnell exchanged words before dropping the gloves. They were joined by Neil and Jody Shelley in a back and forth tilt. Sean O'Donnell decided to go with Matt Carkner but went down to the ice rather easily.
Five other fights took place last night. The most notable involved George Parros and Colton Orr. Parros stunned Orr with a right hand and then fell on top of him as the two hit the ice. Orr hit the playing surface rather hard and was visibly woozy, skating away with a cut above his left eye.
