I wonder how much that was Fienhage trying to make up for the buddy pass to Ranford there. Still, nice to see the kid step up.

Yeah Dave, I think he knew that wasn't the best dish there...Either way, he probably steps up and acts on Forsberg regardless. Good to see. Would have preferred a decisive win, but we'll take the gumption.

He lost on the takedown in my opinion, but Forsberg's a pretty game kid with 11 fights already this year so that may just be experience. Fienhage could do worse than showing he can play and take on chucking some knuckles -- while the era of pure fighters is gone, a big, mobile, righthanded defenseman who can stick up for his teammates is always welcome.
