08:08 AM ET 12.29 | A spat between Blue Jackets Brandon Dubinsky and Blake Comeau escalated, quickly, into a full-on fight today during practice in Nationwide Arena. Dubinsky and Comeau, who had moments earlier exchanged words and had to be separated on the bench during a penalty-kill drill, dropped the gloves and exchanged punches when their lines were next on the ice together. They did so just feet away from coach Todd Richards, who unsuccessfully ordered them to stop. Assistant coach Dan Hinote intervened and pulled Dubinsky and Comeau apart, keeping things from getting out of hand as president of hockey operations John Davidson, watching from suite level, bellowed for the teammates to cease fire.

I know...I read how Boston has injuries, it's been a never ending cycle for a couple years for my team now.

Just when the Jackets get on a roll and start winning they also start fighting ... amongst themselves. Maybe they're just not comfortable winning.

So .... what's so strange about that? It happens all the time. Especially when a guy wants a spot on the roster and they don't want to give it to him.

I guess practice didn't help tonight.

Especially, given they "had to be separated on the bench during a penalty-kill drill", and they gave up 3 PPGs.

Now if the CBJ would only show some fight on the ice.
