Toe-to-Toe They Go
While last night’s almost-full slate of games didn’t fulfill expectations in terms of quanity, the fights that took place yesterday were certainly quality stuff.
Thursday’s fight card was headlined by the fourth career meeting between Eric Boulton and Colton Orr during the opening minutes of Thrashers-Rangers. Orr was the more active combatant early on but Boulton came back with a string of counter-punches and the two continued to exchange blows in a long one.
Darcy Tucker dropped the gloves in his first fight of the season with Derek Dorsett, who tied Riley Cote for the league-lead in fighting majors with six each and traded with Tucker in a fast-paced bout early on in Jackets-Avs. Jared Boll fought twice later on in the game, dancing with Ian Laperriere in the second and then challenging Cody McLeod after a big hit on Dorsett in the third.
