This was a good bout between Bomber and the Moose. Dave missed a punch and landed two decent rights. Ken missed a shot, landed a decent blow, and missed a left hand. Morissette missed a punch, landed a partial connect, and missed a blow. Baumgartner landed two average punches and missed two left hands.

Moose missed a right and two lefts. Bomber landed a solid blow, missed a shot, and landed an average connect. He missed a left hand. Morissette missed two rights and landed a partial connect. He missed a shot and landed an average blow. He landed a solid right and an average connect.

Ken landed a decent punch, missed a shot, and landed a partial connect. Dave landed a partial connect. Baumgartner landed a partial connect and an average shot. He missed a couple of blows and landed an average punch. Moose missed a shot and landed a partial connect. Bomber landed an average blow and a solid connect. Morissette landed a final decent punch.

I rate this as a narrow win for Bomber. He landed more punches and with a little better pop. Moose gave him a competitive fight, but he came up a bit short in quantity and quality of blows.

Draw Fun 
Morissette fakes a southpaw stance in the beginning of the fight. This strategy seems questionable as he's not really shorter, this approach before the clinch usually used by southpaws shorter in height to avoid taking the first straight punch before the clinch. Looks like Moose would try this against lefties. The same fake stance strategy cost him in the past and would also cost him later that season against Gino as he would find himself locked right away after the original clinch. This time he survives and look to connect early with at least one out of three. Then The Bomb gets him in a pretty good lock and connects with three maybe four left hooks. Then Moose respond with a few right direct punches. At least two connected good and Kenny got in a closer a grab to slow what could of been a toe-to-toe tilt. He got two, maybe three short lefts inside and Moose had his "mean" face he usually had when a bit overwhelmed in fight. Morissette threw two to three lefts with the last one connecting for sure maybe another before. Surprisingly knowing Moose himself told in his bio he rarely/never used his left in fights. The tapes available prove he's right. Maybe Kenny forced him to do so. Absolutely nothing can justify a decision to me.

Good fight, Baumgartner takes the early lead with Morissette coming back strong at the midpoint, despite the comeback its a very narrow win for Baumgartner for landing a bit more.

Morissette landed some early blows, but Baumgartner's experience and technique proved to be too much. Baumgartner stymied Morissette the 2nd half of the fight with his defence and ability to switch hand.

Manson was suspended for three games and fined $1,000 by the NHL during the 1998-99 season for butt-ending and elbowing P.J. Axelsson during their altercation here. Manson was given a game misconduct, and the suspension was announced the following day. As a result, Manson did not return to action until Montreal's Nov. 7, 1998 game vs. N.Y. Islanders.Reply
