NHL Daily Duels: March 30
There were too many slobber-knockers last night to only choose one, so today will be yet another multiple-fight edition of Daily Duel. Let’s start off with Sunday night’s Bruins – Flyers game, where agitator extraordinaire Daniel Carcillo (230 penalty minutes on the season) absolutely pummels the Bruins’ Steve Montador. One has to admire Montador for stepping up to the plate against Carcillo, but this was almost a guaranteed loss for him. Landslide victory for Carcillo and the Flyers here.

And for our main event, we have Sunday’s Canucks – Blackhawks game, which Vancouver won 4-0 behind Roberto Luongo’s shutout. But things get really out of hand here in the third period, where a tag team match takes place. Kevin Bieksa and Ben Eager get really, really messy as their equipment flies everywhere and they wrestle each other to the ice. Meanwhile, Duncan Keith and Alex Burrows engage in an energetic brawl just across the ice. Shane O’Brien tried to get in a fight of his own, but was ejected with a game misconduct for making physical contact with the referee while trying to get to Eager. This was a serious barn-burner. I think the Blackhawks won the fights, but it didn’t save them from getting shut out.
