In the offseason Arron Asham left the Pittsburgh Penguins for the New York Rangers, and the Penguins signed Tanner Glass to replace him as their enforcer. The two wasted no time getting acquainted in this epic middleweight fight that started two seconds into the game.
My guess is that the two enforcers talked about this, perhaps to get the jitters out, and set up this fight. After the fight, you can see the two tap each other on the head to say good fight. Neither one wanted to give in, and both of them had to be exhausted by the end. Glass had the advantage early with Asham coming on late; it’s only fitting that this fight ended up in a draw.
