The first-period fight between Flyers tough guy Zack Stortini and new Rangers enforcer Tanner Glass Monday night at Madison Square Garden was 55-seconds of classic hockey brawling.
“It was a good fight,” Stortini told NJ.com. “I got him a few times. He’s a tough competitor as well.”
The fight took place at 11:04 of the first period shortly after the Rangers took a 3-0 lead.
“It’s my job to stand up to teammates and create energy out there,” said Stortini.
The fight was pretty even despite Stortini being the bigger guy at 6-4, 220 pounds. Glass, who played for Pittsburgh the last two seasons, is 6-1, 210.
Stortini-Glass. Sounds like it should be shaken and stirred.
