Charlies Coyle's night lasted a grand total of 17 seconds and he was thrown out of the game for what appears to be a legal shoulder-to-shoulder hit on Blue Jackets forward Artem Anisimov.
For his efforts, Coyle was given a five minute major for contact to the head and a match penalty, and also received a five minute major for fighting.
While Coyle is not known for his fighting skills, I also like the way that he handled himself in the fight against Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky. Checking with Hockeyfights.com, apparently that was the first NHL fight of Coyle's NHL career.
According to Michael Russo from the Star Tribune, Coyle will not be suspended by the NHL because the department of player safety ruled that there was no targeting of the head. That also means that the match penalty will be rescinded as well.
Charlie Coyle faces no discipline. #NHLDept of Player Safety determined that there was no targeting of Anisimov's head. #mnwild #cbj

No, he isnt Kreskin. But when Nick Foligno was traded to Columbus in July, this is exactly the vision he had for his new franchise. He knew the history here, but he also believed this team was capable of launching a new era for Blue Jackets hockey. The mission certainly isnt accomplished, but the team is trending in the right direction, and Foligno is extremely pleased about how...
Rumor has it that there is still professional boxing matches taking place somewhere, but it seems like the better fights are on the ice these days.
Take this scuffle from Saturday night's Columbus Blue Jackets/Minnesota Wild game. Columbus's Jared Boll controls this one pretty much from the start and puts a good hurting on Minnesota's Clayton Stoner.
DROP THE GLOVES
On Saturday night Columbus Blue Jackets forward Jared Boll and Minnesota Wild defenseman Clayton Stoner went at it in a rematch of their tilt from January 29th. The last time these two heavyweights fought it was a solid draw, but this time Boll (6’3″ 195 lbs) destroyed Stoner (6’4″ 228 lbs). Boll must really hate Stoner because he broke the unspoken code that you don’t...
My 3 Stars of the Game
1. Cam Atkinson, CBJ. 1 goal, 1 assist, generally wreaked havoc around the ice.
2. Sergei Bobrovsky, CBJ. After the Shattenkirk goal just 1:16 in, he was solid and kept the Jackets in long enough for the rest of the team to get going.
3. Ryan Johansen, CBJ. Showed flashes of why he went #6 overall just a couple seasons ago.

If the Columbus Blue Jackets qualify for the postseason, Sergei Bobrovsky deserves plenty of the credit.
He'll look to help guide visiting Columbus to a fourth consecutive victory as it continues its playoff push Monday night against the last-place Colorado Avalanche.
