Watch: Penguins Blueger Drops the Gloves vs. Bruins Jeremy Lauzon

Published

For the first time since the opening week of the 2019-20 season, Pittsburgh Penguins Teddy Blueger dropped the mitts. The Penguins center scrapped with Boston defenseman Jeremy Lauzon earlier in the third period of the Penguins’ 3-1 loss to Boston on Tuesday night at PPG Paints Arena.

Blueger last fought in Oct. 2019 against Korbinian Holzer, according to HockeyFights.com. 

He earned stick taps from the Penguins after his bout with Lauzon, who is a couple of inches taller and about 20 pounds heavier.

Lauzon got some good shots over the top, but Blueger landed a pair of hard body shots.

 

“It was a one-goal game, so. We try to be physical and hard on them and, I don’t know if that necessarily led to the fight,” Blueger said. “I think it just kind of happened. We just kind of got tangled up and it just kind of came out of that.”

Blueger handled himself well and later could be seen icing his hand, though he said he was fine.

This season, Teddy Blueger has 21 points (7-14-21) in 37 games. He was injured against the Bruins on March 15 but returned on April 11. Since the Pittsburgh Penguins lost on Tuesday, they failed to hold onto first place in the East Division and didn’t clinch a playoff berth.

He should have went after rat face Marchand for the cheap shot that landed on the IR earlier in the season.
