Bear Knuckle Bouts: Nathan Horton Makes Quick Work of Theo Peckham

by

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.

Theo Peckham should've known not to mess with David Krejci, considering his linemen are Nathan Horton and Milan Lucic. So when the Oilers defenseman landed a hit Horton deemed questionable, the big Bruin went straight for Peckham. And in a quick fight that won't soon be forgotten, Horton knocked Peckham to the ice with a huge right hook three seconds into the fight.

Pinned against the glass, Horton evaded an uppercut and landed the punch before Peckham was able to connect with Horton.

Peckham was able to get up under his own power, but there was no doubting who won this fight. It was the first off three fights on the night.
