Boulton and Boulerice began slugging it out 4:47 into Buffalo's
4-2 victory. Boulerice whipped his smaller combatant around and
Boulton dropped to the ice in obvious pain.
The 6-foot, 224-pound Boulton did not return. He has just one
assist with 53 penalty minutes and a minus-2 rating in 29 games
this season, his fourth in the NHL.
Boulerice was called for roughing later in the game, giving him
a team-high 87 penalty minutes.
