Look, kid, you wanted to sit in the front row for a New Jersey Devils game so don’t clam up now. This is big boy hockey. You wanted action, how about Anthony Peluso vs. Krys Barch right in your face? How about watching Barch get opened up and bleeding on the ice.
And just think, little girl, you’re getting to see Peluso’s maiden voyage as an NHL fighter. The guy went from obscurity in the AHL, to fighting in front of your face. Don’t be so outraged.
The experts over at HockeyFights.com gave Peluso the win with 90% of the vote.
If you care, Winnipeg won, 4-2, and this girl will never ask dad for front row tickets ever again.

BEST OF MAXIM
Another New Jersey Devils player has been placed on injured reserve.
This time it's 40-year old goaltender and future Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur. Devils President and General Manager, Lou Lamoriello, announced the news today.
Brodeur left pre-game warmup Sunday with a sore back and that will keep him out for at least the next week.
The earliest Brodeur can be taken...
Brendan Shanahan explains the suspension.
I am finally on Twitter, follow me @NJDAdvocate
So a few thoughts on the game...
Bad call, no goal, penalty shot (after reading more it seems like it wasn't a penalty shot anyway)... The Devils just were not in sync.
Ryan Carter's absence creates line shuffling. Stefan Matteau out gave Josefson and chance.
Josefson had some spunk. But I still see him on the outside...
The Devils scouting brass (credit given to David Conte and Uncle Lou Lamoriello) may have another diamond in the rough, this one called Reid Boucher.
The Devils' 4th Round pick in 2011, Reid is nearing the OHL's Sarnia Sting's goal scoring record of 58 goals held by Lightning's star Steven Stamkos.
Boucher has progressed his young career getting better and better...
Different game, same result.
Johan Hedberg had another poor outing in a surprise start Sunday and the New Jersey Devils continued to struggle on the penalty kill. Once again that did them in as they fell to the Winnipeg Jets 4-2.
- Simply put, the Devils are not playing good hockey right now. They're being pinned in their own end too often and for too long...
