The Flyers lost the game tonight against the Rangers, but they did win the fights. Most notably, Jody Shelley laid an absolute beat down on Mike Rupp in a scrap that was a long time coming. You'll probably remember earlier this year when these two teams were on HBO's 24/7 that Shelley challenged Rupp during a game with the HBO cameras running. Rupp refused to drop the gloves and said the following.
RUPP: You're f*ckin' irrelevant out here. You're f*ckin' irrelevant out here. If you had any outcome on the game I'd f*ckin' go with you. You don't. You don't.
Rupp later said he regretted saying what he did and having it shown on national TV, especially since it was said to a former teammate. He probably regretted it a bit more after this. Unfortunately for the Flyers though, the result of the fight was irrelevant to the result of the game...
