The Jurassic, meeting of the monsters tussle between Derek Boogaard and Mitch Fritz that I had anticipated all week long did not occur. I blame the swine duo of Charles Wang and Garth Snow. Fitz would have gotten decent playing time had Ted Nolan still been around, but with bone head coach Scott Gordon at the helm he sat on the bench all evening and did not get one shift. The Islanders lost 4-1 by the way, so its not like they couldn't have used a spark.

There was only one fight last night and it wasn't much.

We'll keep with the PJ Stock underdog theme and bring Darin Kimble into the scrum. Kimble played in only 311 NHL games and had a much longer career in the Minors, but his time in the NHL was well spent. He got down with every big name of the era: Brown, Ewen, Domi, Berube, Baumgartner, Bob Mcgill, Twist, Probert and many more. Of all those guys the only person to really trounce him was Probert and how many guys can say they fought Probert and won? Troy Crowder is one of the few who beat Probert and beat him convincingly. It was the 90-91 season that Crowder hit the circuit and toppled all. It seemed no one could beat him, until he fought Kimble.

Upset you ask? Not with Kimble. Every time Kimble fought he had a chance.
