John Erskine vs. Michael Rupp

Posted January 1, 2011

From, 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.
