Donald Brashear and Brandon Sugden Take Part in Fight Night at the Garden
On Thursday night, Brashear was on the other side of the matchup and trying to win some fans in Madison Square Garden (after he was booed during his formal introduction a couple of weeks ago) by throwing down with 6-foot-4, 225-pound Capitals forward Brandon Sugden ... twice.

Midway through the second period the two squared off for the first time in a bout that lasted only a few seconds -- while being accompanied by a chorus of boos from the crowd -- and ended when Brashear lost his balance, allowing Sugden to get a couple of quick shots in.
The second round, however, was a marathon bout early in the third period that started off slow before gaining some momentum at the end.
As for the game itself, the Rangers pulled it out, 3-2, thanks a Christopher Higgins goal with 1:10 to play in regulation.
