Marty McSorley narrow win Fun

Tie Domi of the Winnipeg Jets and Marty McSorley of the Los Angeles Kings, two of the NHL's premier heavyweights at the time, have a short discussion as they line up for a faceoff. According to the announcers, McSorley had taken a run at Tie's teammate Evgeni Davydov earlier in the game, so Domi took note of that.

The two tough guys bump for a bit as Domi grabs the veteran McSorley. Another King player accidentally bumps into both Domi and McSorley, which makes the Jet fall down. McSorley stands over Domi and is waiting for Tie to regain his feet. When he does, Marty and Tie have some words, then whip off the gloves and lunge at each other.

This fight between Domi and McSorley is a battle of stamina between two cardio machines, so this one goes the distance. In the first juncture, McSorley and Domi do a lot of grappling, tugging, twirling, and straining. McSorley attempts to throw several rights but doesn't connect often. Domi just hangs on and doesn't fire back.

McSorley threw a half-dozen short rights to the back of the helmet and shoulders of Domi, landing about three punches. Domi then controlled Marty's arm and snuck in a quick left. McSorley answered with a series of rapid right hands, but Domi deftly ducked away from Marty's punches, so the burly blueliner hit air and not flesh.

The two heavyweights jostled some more. Domi hit McSorley with a good jersey jab, and Marty hit Tie with a jersey jab of his own. Domi misses a swing and was off-balance, enabling McSorley to catch Tie with a solid uppercut. McSorley threw another series of rights that failed to truly connect, most of them hitting Domi's back or missing.

Domi then landed perhaps the single best punch of the fight, pulling Marty in close and landing a solid right hand to the temple that sent McSorley's helmet flying. McSorley took the punch well. They wrestled some more, throwing a few more short punches that just missed the targets. The linesmen chose to intercede at that point and stop the fight, then sent the two warriors off to the penalty boxes. Marty was much more active throughout the battle and landed several more punches overall than Domi to gain a slight decision.

Even though Domi didn't win this scrap, it definitely fired up the Winnipeg fans and Tie's Jet teammates in a big way. When this fight happened, the Jets were down 3-2 to the Kings. After the fight, the Jets were re-energized and ran away with the game, winning it handily, 6-3.

An interesting side note here: when he was with the New York Rangers a few months before this fight, Domi was interviewed about all the anti-fighting sentiments and rule changes that were going on at the time. Domi said, "I can't wait to play an ESPN game. I'm going to fight, and I'll dedicate it to everyone who whines and cries when we fight on TV."

Domi backed up his words by fighting McSorley in this ESPN-broadcast game.

New enforcer of the Winnipeg Jets, Tie Domi gets into a scrap with Los Angeles Kings' tough guy, Marty McSorley. They grapple and McSorley shortly throws a series of six rights, landing five while Domi just moves more in close to the bigger McSorley. McSorley then starts pushing and pulling Domi around, trying to get some separation and get loose from Domi's grasp. McSorley is unable to do either and when he quits Domi lands a left. They resume grappling and Domi switches hands, missing a right and getting some separation while doing so. McSorley then misses a right and after Domi misses a right in return, McSorley throws four rights, landing two while Domi ducks away and loses his helmet. Domi just switches hands during McSorley's flurry and afterwards McSorley grabs the jersey behind Domi's head as they spin. Domi misses a left before McSorley lands a right and Domi gets back in close again. They wrestle and prod at each other once with the right with McSorley missing a right after getting some separation. Domi then opens up with a missing left and McSorley goes back in close, resuming to wrestle with Domi and missing a right in the process. Then Domi lands a left after getting separation but McSorley returns with a landing right and Domi throws himself off balance with a missing left. Domi stabilizes himself and then gets in close as McSorley throws five rights, landing just one before Domi switches hands and lands a right that knocks McSorley's helmet clean off. McSorley then misses two rights before Domi misses a right and they wrestle. McSorley gets separation from Domi and misses a right while the linesmen move in closer. McSorley then misses a right with Domi opening up and missing a left as the fight is being broken up. Good, long heavyweight fight. The win goes to McSorley for landing considerably more punches.

This was a good fight between two of the best in the business. McSorley landed two decent blows, missed a couple of shots, and landed a couple of light shots. Domi missed a right and landed a partial connect with a left. He landed an average shot. Marty missed a blow, landed a solid connect, and missed a few punches.

Domi missed a couple of lefts and landed an average punch. McSorley missed a few punches. Tie was trying to get his left hand in punching position. He was circling, but Marty maintained a solid grip on his arm for much of the fight.

Tie landed an average right, missed a left, landed an average blow, and missed a punch. Marty missed a punch, landed a solid connect, landed a partial connect, and missed a couple of blows. Domi landed an average blow. McSorley landed a solid shot and a decent connect. Both men missed a couple of final attempts as the refs stepped in.

It was a lengthy bout and a good one. I rate this as a narrow win for McSorley. I think he landed a few more punches along the way and with a little better pop. He did a nice job of tying up Domi's arms and neutralizing his potent attack.

Wow, this feed of the fight is one I've never seen before. It is FAR superior to the one I've had all these years. It's a much better angle and clearly shows how many punches truly connected.

I'm gonna have to re-evaluate this one. I always thought this was an edge for Marty, but it looks more like a draw with this better angle.

After watching it over a few times, I'll stick with a narrow win for Marty. I did the punch count, and the numbers certainly back that up.

"Clear wins" are a little inaccurate, and I see that Mullet has already changed his call from "clear" to "narrow", which is the right way to go.
