Welcome to another installment of Hockey Fights of the Week. This week we're preaching balance. Three of the five fights this week are pretty lopsided, but all five bouts fall into a similar category. Each scrap you see below is solid, but it's highly doubtful any of these altercations will be remembered as one of the year's best.  5. Nick Foligno (CBJ) vs Tom Sestito (VAN) - Nov 22 This fight may deserve to be higher up on this list. How awesome is it when a guy throws a punch and pops the opponent's helmet off? Extremely awesome. Here it happens twice which automatically makes this fight a winner in our book.  4. Jared Boll (CBJ) vs Luke Gazdic (EDM) - Nov 19 Check out these massive swings. Both players are unleashing wild, heavy punches. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately for both players), very few punches come close to finding the mark. Who wins this one? Flip a coin.  3. Colin Greening (OTT) vs Luke Schenn (PHI) - Nov 19 Schenn knew he was in a fight, right? Greening dominates the action here, landing numerous punches before Schenn even knows what hit him. Schenn was able to control the fight for all of five seconds, but he mostly looked foolish in this one.  2. Brenden Dillon (DAL) vs Ryan Reaves (STL) - Nov 23 Reaves deserves an award for the number of awesome fights he's been apart of this season. Here he battles Dillon and beats him so badly that he actually broke his hand in the altercation. Sadly, we won't be featuring Reaves in any tilts until his hand heals. Bad news for the Blues, worse news for fans of hockey fights.  1. Krys Barch (FLA) vs Brian McGrattan (CGY) - Nov 22 You'll find McGrattan's name on our list almost every single time he drops the gloves. McGrattan's tilt with Barch is yet another reason why the Calgary forward is truly one of the most entertaining fighters in the NHL. Will we see McGrattan next week? Odds are pretty good.  Previous installments: November 11 - November 17 November 4 - November 10 October 28 - November 3 October 21 - October 27 October 14 - October 20 October 7 - October 13 October 1 - October 6 The 15 best hockey fights from 2012-13.  A big "Thank you" to Hockey Fights, our #1 resource for hockey fight videos.
