Video: Blackhawks’ Bollig fights Kings’ Nolan

Mar 25, 2013, 10:43 PM EDT

It started off slow, but by the end there were some major punches being thrown between Chicago Blackhawks forward Brandon Bollig and L.A. Kings forward Jordan Nolan.

The two came together at the blue line early in the second period and dropped the gloves – removing their helmets before squaring off. The fight started off with a lot of clutching and body shots. But midway through the bout, both switched from a tight hug to a form more conducive to the heavy haymakers.

    Players on both sides conducted themselves pretty well considering all the penalties the refs missed. Scuderi’s high-sticking penalty for having the gall to fan on a shot and hit Stalberg, who Scuderi couldn’t have known was there, was obvious enough for the ref to call, but two other high-sticking penalties on ‘Hawk players were missed.

    It was particularly galling to hear the announcers say they heard the ref telling Scuderi that had he made contact with the puck the penalty wouldn’t have been called. Stalberg leaned in to try and poke the puck away so of course it’s Scuderi’s fault Stalberg’s face was in the way of his swing, but only because he missed the puck? The ref thinks there’d have been no follow-through if the stick had struck the puck?

    Quick was shaky early and just doesn’t look like himself at all yet this year, but the Kings played the ‘Hawks evenly most of the game. A great win to start the road trip and break their scoring drought, but they can’t hope to score 4 or 5 goals every game. Quick needs to step it up and start looking like the elite goalie he’s being paid to be.

    Great fight! I would have to call it a draw. Both got good punches in through out the scrap.

    Assuming that …

    A = Los Angeles Kings
    B = Chicago Blackhawks
    C = the rest of the teams in the NHL

    then if A defeats B in it’s own barn, is A then not superior to C ? … of course it is ! :)


    We won friends, just like I knew we would! However this one is really “special” and it couldn’t have come at a better time! Yes, I hear comrade Manchestermiracle’s concerns about Quick. But in reply I would urge him and other supporters of the cause to “stand down” from their apprehensions. Comrade Quick is recovering from back surgery in September (ie: during the “contrived” lockout) and so I can see him returning to form, faster than a fly pouncing on a serving of excrement! It’s a great evening friends, so please enjoy ! :)

      I’m just not used to seeing the defense give up four goals, even to the hottest team in the league, and two of those goals could be considered soft. It also pisses me off that the defending Cup champs go into Chicago and beat the league leaders and the best PHT can do with a write-up is focus on a stupid fight while ignoring the game. Great work, PHT.

        “Take it easy man” …

        Manchestermiracle – I hear what you’re saying friend, but now isn’t the time to start picking a fight with these PHT people, trust me. As for our defense, yeah it “kills me” too every time we get scored upon. In fact I get sick to my stomach whenever that happens. But regardless, we went into the barn of the NHL’s so-called “hottest” team tonight and we beat them, fair and square. And that’s all that really matters … ya dig? :)

    That’s what you call a pick em. Do you take the guy who got more shots in,Bollig, or the guy who got the 2 harder shots in, Nolan. I’d go with Bollig, as he didn’t look to be affected by the shots he took. But I’m also biased.
