The 1st Fight of the NHL Season

I went to see a hockey game, and a UFC match broke out!NHL: Boston Bruins at Arizona Coyotes

The Boston Bruins are known for being tough, but up until Saturday night, they had no fighting majors in the 2015-16 season. That streak ended emphatically in Saturday’s contest against the Arizona Coyotes at Gilla River Arena.

Arizona forward Joe Vitale grabbed a hold of Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller. The two shared some unpleasant words and Vitale was first to drop the gloves. That may have been a decision he now regrets.

Here’s video of the season’s most vicious scrap so far in the young NHL season.

Once Miller broke free, he started throwing heavy, heavy rights at Vitale’s face. He landed around four or five truly massive blows. But, he didn’t really break free as Vitale was holding on to Miller’s jersey for dear life, so much so that he actually ended up ripping Miller’s jersey at the collar.

The fight ended up finishing Vitale’s evening early. He took some heavy licks and looked pretty banged up after all was said and done. Vitale left the penalty box and did not return to the game after the scrap. According to the team in the most obvious injury update ever, Vitale sustained an “upper-body injury.” After the game he went to the hospital for x-rays, according to the Arizona Coyotes official website. Lastly, there was more bad news for the Coyotes. Despite the fact that they started the season 3-0, they lost to the Bruins 5-3.
