Video: Trouba, Bennett bloodied after lengthy fight
The Winnipeg Jets didn’t have much going for them Saturday versus the Calgary Flames.
Down two goals and with less than two minutes remaining in the second period, Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba dropped the gloves with Sam Bennett in front of the Winnipeg net. Both players landed some heavy punches, still trying to throw them after the linesmen intervened.
Easily visible following the fight was the blood from an apparent cut to Trouba’s forehead and a bleeding nose for Bennett.
You could see this fight coming for a while, too. Both players came together in a battle along the boards, trading slashes and cross checks before the gloves came off.
