Blackhawks Daily: A Brawl in the Big Apple



The Chicago Blackhawks were idle on Wednesday night but there were plenty of incredible hockey games for fans to watch instead. None can compare to the game that the New Jersey Devils and New York Rangers played. At the opening faceoff, some old scores needed to be settled. Matt Rempe of the New York Rangers injured a couple of New Jersey Devils players over the last two times they played.

The New Jersey Devils put Kurtis McDermid into their lineup so he can fight Rempe. When these two dropped the mitts on the opening faceoff, every skater on the ice had someone to fight. It was a full-blown line brawl.

We don’t see things like this in the NHL anymore but New Jersey and New York had a little old-school night at Madison Square Garden. Rempe has been running wild around the NHL and teams are starting to grow tired of his antics. This is how the Devils felt they needed to police the situation.

There was a hockey game played after the brawl. The score went back and forth as each team had a lead throughout the game. However, the Rangers pulled out a 4-3 win in what will go down as one of the most memorable games of the 2023-24 NHL season.

Blackhawks In Case You Missed It

  • Connor Bedard is climbing up the Blackhawks’ rookie ranks and he still has seven games left to go in his first NHL season.
  • There is an argument to be made for Petr Mrazek as the 2023-24 Chicago Blackhawks MVP. Hopefully, he can continue to play like this for the duration of his contract.
  • The Chicago Blackhawks made a big move for their rebuild as they got Nick Lardis locked into an entry-level contract.
