Welcome to the game rookie.
The Ottawa Senators rookie David Dziurzynski finally got his
chance to fight Wednesday night when he dropped his gloves against Toronto
Maple Leafs enforcer Frazer McLaren.
It's a shame that the ensuing concussion he got from being knocked out means he likely will not remember it.
Then again, it might be best if he doesn't remember this one.
BEST OF MAXIM
You want to see a hockey fight knockout? We give you David Dziurzynski vs Frazer McLaren last night in Toronto just after the first period drop of the puck. As you can see in the video, David is still a mess as he’s scooped off the ice for a visit to the locker room.
Last night was just the 10th NHL game for Dziurzynski and was his first NHL fight. Seriously, this was his first...
Dziurzynski was out cold for a few moments but recoved enough to be helped off the ice.
I would like to continue my rant about how NHL players are some of the toughest folks in the sporting world, and the below video will speak for me. Check out how Frazer McLaren left David Dziurzynski not moving on the ice following their scrap during the beginning of the Senators and Maple Leafs game on Wednesday night. Dziurzynski left the game with an obvious concussion.

The sight of Ottawa Senators forward Dave Dziurzynski lying on the ice, knocked out, after a getting pounded into submission by Toronto Maple Leafs heavyweight Frazer McLaren sickened me to no end.
Oh, wait, no one ever gets hurt in a hockey fight, right?

From an Ottawa Senators perspective, two players made the...
The Senators played the Rangers tough, as per usual. After the Sens opened up a 2-0 lead, the Rangers showed their grittiness and their willingness to fight back as they tied the game before the first period ended. But in the end, the Sens showed why they are still a playoff team despite being without three of their top players. On to the goals:
Lady luck is mean sometimes.
All but five periods in the second quarter of the season were played without Erik Karlsson, and if you've been watching the games you don't need me to tell you the team looks different now. Shots against have gone up, and the Senators have struggled to create offensive chances for long stretches. Nevertheless the team has stayed in games and picked up points in ones they...

I think a lot of credit needs to be given to the Ottawa Senators, who have played very well despite a slew of injuries and continued that trend tonight. They have enough young talent to step in and play a competitive game.
Of course, the Rangers still have superior talent and should be on the right end of a result at home against a young, injured team like this. Still, I don...
