Watch Brandon Prust try to fight the heavier Milan Lucic

Mar 4, 2012, 7:50 PM EDT

It’s nice to see the Rangers’ Brandon Prust try to hold his own against the taller and heavier Milan Lucic, but as you’ll see below, bravery can only get you so far.

Lucic pretty much controlled the fight, moving Prust into the Bruins’ bench before it was broken up. The scrap occurred just two seconds after Boston’s Benoit Pouliot scored at 7:57 of the first period to cut the Rangers’ lead down to 2-1. Boston did end up scoring the next goal, but it was not until 1:40 of the second period, and New York still ended up winning 4-3.

    Uh, is this the Bruins official website? Who cares? There are 10 fights a night and most of them are more lopsided than this one.

      Seriously, I mean 7 out of the last 72 articles have been about the reigning Stanley Cup Champs, it’s like, give me a break, am I right?

      I too am so sick of hearing & reading about the Bruins, yet I still read the articles, and then post comments about how much I hate the Bruins, because people need to know how much I hate the Bruins.

      7 out of the last 72 articles, who’s running this website, Jack Edwards?

        It’s not about the number of articles, it’s about the need to constantly pump them up, even after a loss, even if it’s a completely pointless fight that wasn’t even one-sided.

        Unless you’re new to the site or haven’t been paying attention, you should know PHT posts a lot of articles about the weekly NHL on NBC Sunday afternoon matchup.
        This week’s matchup happened to feature the top two teams in the East. Did this fight deserve the attention? No it did not. If this fight happened on NESN on Saturday, it probably doesn’t get an article on PHT, but it happened on NBC, do you follow?

        If anything it’s more of a reflection on NBC constantly pumping up themselves & their own broadcast, but it’s just so much easier to complain about the Bruins, now it’s their fault that NBC is promoting their own broadcasts.

        It’s clear people are sick of the Bruins, some people may be sore about how last spring went down, some people may just be sick of hearing about them, I get that too.

        Regardless, articles about the Bruins get people talking & posting comments. A negative post about the Bruins is worth just as much to PHT as a positive post, so in the end, if you are so sick of hearing about them, stop reading the articles & commenting on them…..you are only feeding the monster.

    dude…I had to scroll over about 10 times this weekend before I could find a non Toronto coach related article.

      Bruins are part of the top two teams in the east?

        If the playoffs started today, the Bruins would be the #2 seed in the East.

    Its their jobs (pro hockey talk writers) to write stories based on the hockey related news of the day. If its a slow day and you don’t like the “headline” articles, here’s a hint don’t click to read.

    Funny how one of the stories in the thumbnail panel is a picture of Prust & Lucic fighting previously, not sure why it should be a surprise for them to go at it again.

    I give prust credit, but there isn’t much difference between lucic fighting prust than cambel fighting bickel, which didn’t even get a second look. I can’t wait for april 1 and a rematch, and i’m praying for a playoff matchup in the East finals.
