It Takes Two Fights, But Hockey Pugilists Finally Get It Right

Craig Rivet of the Sabres and Daniel Carcillo of the Flyers fought not once, but twice last night during Buffalo's 4-2 win. The first fight was mediocre and the Philly faithful made their feelings known with a lackluster, tepid response.

Round 1

A lot of clutching and grabbing but nothing really good happened, although Rivet and Carcillo made up for it when they went at it again during the second period.


Round 2

Carcillo ultimately received a 10-minute game misconduct penalty after the second fight, but if you ask me, it was worth it. You can't leave the hometown fans disappointed and wanting more, but it would have been cooler if when he was getting escorted off the ice, Carciillo would have busted out a "Are you not entertained? Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here?" speech. Actually, that would have been pretty lame, so forget that idea.
