Video: Prolific fighters Boll, Brown participate in marathon brawl

Mar 29, 2013, 8:52 AM EST

The Edmonton Oilers acquired Mike Brown from the Toronto Maple Leafs because they wanted to inject more toughness on a team that has a wealth of young skilled forwards. With the Oilers and Columbus Blue Jackets both desperately trying to stay in the playoffs, Brown stepped up Thursday night.

Brown was credited with five hits and got into a scrap with Jared Boll in the Oilers’ 6-4 victory over the Blue Jackets.

The fight was a long one with both players delivering their fair share of blows. If you want to see it, you can do so below:

Brown and Boll are tied for second place in the NHL with 10 fights each in 2013, according to hockeyfights. That’s not surprising, given that both players have been prolific fighters throughout their NHL careers.

    Good report on two boxers who happen to skate. How about reporting something meaningful like, oh I don’t know, the games that took place last night? You know, that sport you named your site after?

      Oh geez. Just don’t click on the the link. You knew what it was going to be before clicking it. It’s kind of like watching TV. You can see on the onscreen guide to see what show is on. If you don’t like it, don’t select that show or change the channel. BTW, fighting is part of hockey.

    wow who pee’d in your fruit loops? Is your life so empty that you had to click an article you know you’d hate, just to troll? Sad. I, like most normal people, quite enjoyed the video.

    Both of those young teams are beginning to learn what it takes to be a legit playoff contender. Comradery and sacrifice. Good bout boys!

    Hype- extenstion. What amateurs – they just stopped on their own? watch Lucic if you want to see a fight.

      Lucic is a great fighter but that is a trolly, classless, unnecessary comment you just made

    “Lucic is a great fighter WHO ALMOST ALWAYS REFUSES TO ACCEPT FIGHTS FROM GUYS HIS OWN SIZE, INSTEAD CAREFULLY PICKING HIS SPOTS AGAINST GUYS WHO ARE BELOW HIS WEIGHT CLASS AND DEVELOPING AN UNDESERVED REPUTATION AS A GREAT FIGHTER IN THE PROCESS”

    Fixed that for you
