In the Washington Capitals’ preseason game against the Boston Bruins Monday night, Joel Rechlicz, a player with a reputation for dropping the gloves, showed that besides winning shootouts he can also destroy one of the toughest players in hockey in a one-on-one bout. That player being Milan Lucic of the Bruins who decided to drop gloves with “Wrecker” and got demolished. The fight lasting nearly a minute was a close match up with a mix of left and right blows directly to the face which left both players bloody. Although the hit count between the two was almost equal, most announcers speculated from what they could see that Rechlicz won the fight after landing close to 5 punches onto Lucic’s face.

2013-14 NHL Season Preview: Washington Capitals

This 2013-14 NHL season preview features the Washington Capitals. The Capitals have been one the NHL’s premier regular season team’s on the strength of their offense.

Milan Lucic-Joel Rechlicz Fight a ‘Fight for Men,’ Gives Bruins Winger Chance to Warm Up Fists

BOSTON — The Bruins probably don’t necessarily like Milan Lucic fighting too much. He’s a top-six forward who has shown an ability to score goals, and he also brings a physical presence that is undeniable. However, that doesn’t do him or the team much good if he’s watching games from the press box with a broken hand. But fighting is a part of Lucic’s game, and it makes...

Ovechkin, Capitals aim for better playoff outcome

The patches of white in Alex Ovechkin's black hair are growing more pronounced. He turned 28 this month, he is the captain of the Washington Capitals, and while the Russian wing is coming off a third NHL MVP trophy, what he does not have at this point is much in the way of playoff success. ''Of course it's hard (to) realize you're getting older. And, of course...

Boston Bruins’ Milan Lucic and Claude Julien Comment on NHL’s New Fighting Rule

In an attempt to make the game safer, the NHL enacted a new rule in the offseason that prohibits players from removing their helmets before engaging in a fight.
