Lots of PIMS, Few Fights in NJ v. PHI

Standard Spin: There were 80+ penalty minutes handed out in the New Jersey/Philadelphia match-up on Saturday, but there was only one fight - go figure.  After Jody Shelley and Eric Boulton dropped the gloves 5 minutes into the first, the game got chippy; multiple players received misconduct penalties, and four finished with more than 10 PIMs in the game: Clarkson, Mills, and Boulton for NJ, and Bourdon for Philly. Sure, it wasn't the fisticuffs and majors that fantasy owners love to see, but GMs can't argue when the misconducts quickly increase an enforcer's PIM total.
