Editor’s note: Every day leading up to the start of the 2011-12 season, NESN.com will post one fight from the 2010-11 Bruins season. At the end of each week, fans can vote for what they thought was the best fight of the week, and after every fight has been posted, they can vote on which fight was the best of the year.
Sometimes hockey players actually show patience in a fight. Then again, sometimes they show too much patience.
St. Louis Blues forward B.J. Crombeen and Boston defenseman Mark Stuart put their fists up and immediately decided a staring contest might be the best option. Shortly thereafter, they decided that maybe playing a little good ol’ fashioned tug-of-war with their jerseys was more exciting. Then, and only then, did the punching commence.
If you look closely enough, you can see that early on Stuart got a little clever with his left hand. Not only did he use it to hold onto Crombeen’s jersey, but he used it to throw a few jabs into the forward’s chin as well.
