Last week's edition of Hockey Fights of the Week might have left you feeling a bit unsatisfied. We'll be the first to admit that the fights were lackluster at best. How did the league respond? Let's just say that for this week's edition we actually had to make a few difficult decisions on which fights to include because there were numerous bouts worthy of the list.  You'll also notice that all five of the scraps in this week's list are courtesy of the Eastern Conference. Step your game up, Western Conference.  5. Frazer McLaren (TOR) vs. Matt Kassian (OTT) - April 20 ​If you're a regular reader of this column you might believe we're a bit biased due to the fact various Toronto Maple Leafs always seem to make the countdown. Well, we can't control that the Maple Leafs always seem to put up the best fights, but this scrap where Kassian beats McLaren should satisfy all of the Toronto haters out there.  Someone probably should have told McLaren that he was facing the wrong way for the majority of this one.  4. Tanner Glass (PIT) vs. Adam McQuaid (BOS) - April 20 Would you have picked Glass in this fight with McQuaid? Probably not, especially if you consider all of the emotion that's been in the Boston area throughout the past week. McQuaid probably wasn't at his best in this one, but give Glass credit for his effort in what might have been his best scrap in 2013.  3. Tim Gleason (CAR) vs. Chris Neil (OTT) - April 16 Now we're talking. This is the type of fight we've been craving. Neil and Gleason both appear to land some big blows, but Neil wins this one by connecting with a few devastating punches. However, we are forced to take points away from Neil for throwing numerous punches while Gleason is down. Poor form.  2. Arron Asham (NYR) vs. Jay Rosehill (PHI) - April 16 Note to the NHL: Rosehill has a pretty frightening left hand and he knows how to use it. He wins this fight by a large margin over Asham, giving Philadelphia Flyers fans something to distract themselves with while they're trying to avoid looking at the team's disappointing record.  1. Eric Boulton (NYI) vs. Colton Orr (TOR) - April 18 Our deepest gratitude to both Boulton and Orr for giving us a fight that's worthy of the top spot in this week's list. It's easy to pick a winner from this one: the fans. This fight is intense. Both men throw some enormous punches that connect with their opponent's face. Both men slow things down, plan their next punch and then unleash the fury. This is what fighting in hockey is all about.  Previous installments: April 8 - April 14 April 1 - April 7 March 25 - March 31 March 18 - March 24 March 11 - March 17 March 4 - March 10 February 25 - March 3 February 18 - February 24 February 11 - February 17 February 4 - February 10 January 28 - February 3 January 21- January 27 A big "Thank you" to Hockey Fights, our #1 resource for hockey fight videos.
