Hockey Fight of the Night: Eric Brewer vs Evander Kane [VIDEO]

Do things seem chippier than usual in the NHL? Players have already skated for more than a half-season, and the two-week Olympic break is still a month away.

Maybe the slog is giving these guys an extra reason to fight?

At the end of Tuesday night’s Jets-Lightning game in Winnipeg, Tampa’s Eric Brewer decided to take on Evander Kane. It was a one-sided bout.

The lesson for Brewer: never fight a guy named after a heavyweight champion.

While Kane won the fight, the Jets lost the game, 4-2.
