Video: Wild’s Rupp cut in fight with Flyers’ Rosehill

Dec 2, 2013, 9:24 PM EDT

Minnesota Wild winger Mike Rupp received a cut next to his left eye in a fight with Philadelphia Flyers forward Jay Rosehill and had to go off for repairs, according to Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

The fight occurred immediately off a faceoff just 3:30 into the second period of Monday’s game between the Wild and Flyers. The two traded heavy punches.

The scrap may have been brewing after a physical first period between the two teams.

    Despite Rupp being cut I still have to give him the overall win. Rosehill got him with a couple good ones but Rupp was feeding him punches for the majority of the fight.

    Good job by Rosehill on a bigger opponent. Opened him up and put em’ down. Too bad we got shut out though.

      Another delusional Philly fan. Rupp definately landed the bigger shots. Wild 2 Flyers 0.

        Except for the shot that cut him and put him on his knees. Who’s being delusional now?

      Opened him up? As in used his face to attack Rupp’s fist? Rosehill got one hit in that cut Rupp. Rupp hit him 7-8 times in the head hard. Rupp won. Easy.

        Spoken like a guy who’s never been in a fight in his life.

        Spoken like a guy who knows what hurts worse. Repeated punches to your head, or an elbow pad slicing your skin.

    Rupp in a unamimous decision.

    Gino Odjick, Pavel Bure’s protector, and long time Canuck enforcer appears to be suffering from post-concussion syndrome. Since retiring 11 years ago he has spent 32 months in the hospital for treatments. Another sad story of a former NHL player/enforcer. I hope PHT will report on Gino’s plight to bring more awareness to hockey fans about the effects and causes of concussions. Hopefully the NHL will one day put their wallets aside for the well being for their greatest assets. Save the players.
