Tough Month Continues
Jody Shelley and Riley Cote went the distance in Thursday’s main heavyweight attraction. The fight was Shelley’s second as a member of the Sharks.
Cote had a chance to close the distance on Jared Boll‘s league-lead when it comes to fighting majors, but Boll ended up dropping the gloves with Mike Commodore in last night’s Jackets-Senators game.
Maxim Lapierre participated in his first NHL scrap when he locked horns with Maxime Talbot right off of a faceoff during Pittsburgh‘s 5-4 win over Montreal.
A pair of scraps in Bruins-Panthers: rugged defensive specialists Jeremy Reich and Steve Montador danced early in the first period with Mark Stuart and Gregory Campbell having a go minutes later.
Two Western Conference bouts rounded out the night. Jeff Cowan traded bombs with Shea Weber and veterans Bryce Salvador and Scott Thornton went as well.
Simon gets cold reception
Simon was booed by a segment of the crowd when he took his first couple of shifts in the first period, and there was no discernible applause to counter that negative reaction.
So many since the last listing, we’ve put them, along with some audio and article links after the jump.
