In baseball, players get to choose the song that plays when they come up to bat. Sometimes they have a different song for each time through the rotation. Since you can’t play a song very time someone jumps over the boards, we thought we could give them another anthem: fight songs.
My brain goes immediately to what MY fight song would be – every time I see Sean Avery I want to skate out there and punch him.
We’ll let Jordan Staal’s Meg Ryan-shag duke it out with Kris Letang for the rights to this one:

Where are all my Pens fans? They have 63 fights on the season – Engelland has 12 of those. Is there a song about elf costumes for Mike Rupp? Re-watch this gem and tell me you don’t hear “Girlfriend” by Avril Lavigne.
You know you have one. A song that comes on and you immediately want to break something shaped like the Detroit Red Wings. Or maybe you ended up in charge of the iPod while favorite fighter is sticking up for his guys again (Tyler Kennedy). Let’s hear ’em. Tomorrow we’ll do goal-scoring songs.Tags: deryk engelland, jordan staal, Kris Letang, mike green, mike rupp, Shawn Thornton
