There have been no fights between Columbus and San Jose this season. Columbus is winning the season series 1-0.
Jared Boll hasn't fought in three consecutive games. It has been a week since his supposed hand injury while fighting Tim Gleason, so his hand is likely better at this point.
While his hand may be better and while the Sharks may be full of palatable middleweights, Boll's play of recent suggests that he's turned a new leaf - a New Years' resolution, perhaps. It has been paying off - he had his first multi-point game on Thursday against Los Angeles. If this offensive production continues, look for Boll to be involved in less fights over the course of the rest of the year - this game included.
