Three things stuck out about this game, and they clearly fit into...
Fighting… With George McPhee
Most fans know George McPhee as the humorless, stone-faced General Manager of the Washington Capitals. In fact, most journalists know McPhee that very same way. Needless to say, he was quite a fighter back in the day. You know, in 1999, when he gave Chicago coach Lorne Molleken a black eye after an exhibition game.
But McPhee was also a force to reckon with when he played with the New York Rangers.
(Videos after the jump)
Before we get to the fight videos, we want to report that McPhee is a winker, and people who get winked at by McPhee should consider it a compliment (like my roller hockey teammate who got winked at by McPhee at the Gardens Ice House in Laurel. We’re really not sure why.).
Okay, on to the fight videos.
