Souray Floors Weller
The beast inside of Sheldon Souray hasn’t been awoken that often during the last few seasons, but when the veteran has been called on to drop the gloves, he’s been successful. Thus was the case last night when Souray decided to dance with his latest foe, Craig Weller, who received an old-fashioned beatdown before being put down for the count courtesy of Souray’s left hand. A spirited scrap between Ladislav Smid and James Sheppard was the other bout in Oilers-Wild.
Tuesday night started fast with a couple of scraps in the early night games. Shawn Thornton and Tim Jackman tangled in a short one in Bruins-Isles and Jordin Tootoo took care of Steve Begin in Preds-Habs. Paul Gaustad and Brian Sutherby also traded punches in Sabres-Stars.
In the West, two fights took place in Avs-Blues. Cody McLeod and Brad Winchester fought right off of the opening faceoff and rookies Chris Stewart and Tyson Strachan did the same in the second period. Rob Davison taking a decision over Daniel Carcillo rounded out the night’s action.
