On Tuesday night in Philadelphia, Jay Rosehill continued to prove his worth to his new team when he accepted New York Rangers Arron Asham’s invitation to have a go at 3:51 in the second period of the final game between the two teams in the regular season.
The fight takes off quickly. Rosehill grabs hold of Asham’s jersey with his right hand, dead centre in the middle of his chest and Asham gets him with a really, really good right hander.
Rosehill then proceeds to go to town on Asham. His method is simple: hold with the right and go beastmode with the left. Rosehill gets a good 15+ swings in while the two spin around, Asham stumbling at one point but getting right back up to continue on. The height and reach advantage definitely play a role in this fight, but Asham does manage to get a solid grab and hold of Rosehill’s jersey near the end which seems to be what gets the two of them together long enough to wind down the fight. On Asham’s way up he accidentally head butts Rosehill’s chin from below but there are no hard feeling, just a quick pat on the head before the two head to their respective penalty boxes.
