STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN - OCTOBER 02: Todd Bertuzzi of Detroit Red Wings looks during the 2009 Compuware NHL Premiere Stockholm match between Detroit Red Wings and St. Louis Blues at the Ericsson Globe on October 2, 2009 in Stockholm, Sweden. (Photo by Paul Gilham/Getty Images)
Well, two hockey posts in one day, and the season hasn't even started yet.  Earlier we had an awesome behind the back goal by Todd Bertuzzi in a Red Wings scrimmage.  Now we have Bobby Robins going toe to toe with Adam McQuaid in a Boston Bruins scrimmage. Bobby is a journeyman who likes to brawl quite often. 29 times last season with the ECHL Chicago Express to be exact. He participated in the P-Bruins’ scrimmage against the Boston Bruins, and so did McQuaid.  McQuaid was playing his first game since recovering from a concussion and a blood clot.  Check out the play by play and fight video below. McQuaid went right after Robbins and the two parties circled a few times before landing their punches. McQuaid threw a right hand that missed Robbins’ head and then the Providence Bruins enforcer – who has racked up 138 penalty minutes this season – downed the Bruins defenseman with a strong overhand right punch. “Everybody’s working hard, and those guys are excited to get their season going. We’ve been playing now for a while, and we’re pretty excited too, just for the hockey world,” said Robbins. “It’s one of those things where you get riled up in front of the net, just playing hard-nosed hockey.”  More Via puck daddy Check out our Home Page for more stories and follow us on Twitter and Facebook
