From HockeyFights.com, John Erskine and Michael Rupp dropped the gloves at the Winter Classic. I wouldn’t be surprised if these two had a quick chat beforehand and agreed to fight at some point, to get themselves on the stat sheet on hockey’s biggest stage. Perhaps we’ll find out on HBO.

Update: According to Lindsay Czarniak of News 4, Erskine said¬†Rupp had asked him to stop because his contact lens flipped in his eye. The fight did look like it ended by a verbal agreement and it’s the ole contact lens excuse. Well done sideshow, gentlemen.
