Evander Kane Doesn’t Go Down

Hockey and fighting has entered a completely new dynamic in recent years.  In the 2014-2015 season, there were 78 less fights than in 2013-2014 and only .32 fights per game.  In 2008-09 there were over 730 fights with .60 fights per game and 41.38% of games with fights.

Last night, though, was “Fight Night” in the NHL.  Maybe players were trying to show some masculinity heading in to Valentines Day weekend. In Just five games Monday night, there were eight total fights.  Despite seeing multiple fights in a game and several brawls throughout the years, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen three rounds between two opponents.

The Florida Panthers beat the Buffalo Sabres 7-4.  However, it was Evander Kane with three-round knockout in his fights against Alex Petrovic.
