Yes, it was fight night in Philly on Thursday after the Flyers took a 6-2 lead in the third that would eventually be the margin of victory. The second-long penalty fest started with this fight between Nick Foglino and Claude Giroux(notes), the second fight of the Flyers' winger's career:
Clear win for Foglino, but there's no question Giroux wins on hair. From The 700 Level:
Looked kinda like Shaun White swinging there, or Kyle from South Park when he takes off his hat. You never really want to see skill players fighting in games that are out increasingly out of reach, if at all. But with the Senators clawing for the momentum they'd had in the second, every Flyer to a man responded with emotion if not goals or fists.
Old Time Hockey indeed. Check out The 700 Level for more on the fights and a bonus scrap between Jeff Carter(notes) (!) and Jesse Winchester(notes).
