Sidney Crosby dropped the gloves for just the seventh fight of his career in a tilt with the Blue Jackets' Brandon Dubinsky.
The two took the chance to dance after getting tangled up in the corner during the second period of Thursday night’s matchup. The opportunity came after Dubinsky drove Crosby into the boards and wouldn’t let him leave. Dubinsky had the upper hand for most of the fight, but Crosby delivered a solid right hook before they fell to the ice.
It wasn’t much of a fight but for comparison, it was Dubinsky’s 34th fight while only Crosby’s seventh. Dubinsky is one of Crosby's known antagonists, delivering this big hit on the Penguins' star last season and accusing him of being a 'dirty player' in 2010.
According to hockeyfights.com, Sid the Kid's draw with Dubinsky was his first since dropping the gloves with Philadelphia captain Claude Giroux during the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs.
