from Billy Witz of the LA Times,
When Ducks forward George Parros extended an invitation to Sharks defenseman Douglas Murray to drop their gloves and begin to brawl in Game 3 of their Western Conference playoff series, it did not come on embossed stationary or in the form of poetry.
“I asked, ‘Do you want to do this?’ ” Parros said. “It wasn’t an intellectual conversation.”
Not what one would expect from a couple of Ivy League graduates….
They have been running into each other on rinks since their high school days in the New York City area.
“We’ve been taking runs at each other for so many years,” said Murray, who came to the U.S. from Sweden at age 17 to live with relatives on Long Island for a year. He liked it so much he stayed.
