Really the only thing this check into the boards by Nino Niederreiter reminds me of is the Bash Brothers from The Mighty Ducks.  This came last night when the Islanders beat the Sabres 2-1.  Obviously in hockey most players don't like when their teammates get hit so Zack Kassian of Buffalo started a fight with Matt Martin from the New York Islanders.  The fight itself although entertaining didn't have many punches landed.  The two players ducked their heads and threw a flurry of short punches to each others helmet.  Needless to say the most impressive part of the video is the huge check that Nino threw and sent the Buffalo player into the bench.
