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 throw punches at a guy once he is down, but Boll didn’t hold back once Stoner dropped to his knees. I’m not sure what took the linesman so long to break up this one-sided fight. [hockeyfights.com]
