I think one of the most interesting things about this fight card is that the majority of the Last Fights came from a match-up against the Columbus Blue Jackets.  If anything, if you don’t follow the St. Louis Blues, that is definitely an indicator of who their rival team is.

As always, the Canadians strongly dominated the fight card.  Although, Steve Ott was responsible for half the fights on the Canadian side.  With 116 career fights (and counting), he shows that he is the main enforcer on the team.  Following behind him are Barret Jackman and Ryan Reaves.

Both the Russians and Europeans didn’t drop the gloves once, while David Backes had the most career fights among the Americans.
