Daniel Lacroix narrow win Fun 
5
Light-heavyweights Daniel Lacroix and Denny Lambert drop the gloves for the first of two fights that they would have in the 1996-1997 season. This fight would serve as the undercard to the excellent heavyweight tilt that would happen in the following period between Dan Kordic and Dennis Vial. Lambert misses with a left and gets his left arm free of his jersey sleeve, losing his elbow pad in the process. He throws three lefts over the top, connecting with one. Lacroix lands two lefts himself as Lambert misses with a big left hand. They grapple and Lacroix lands a right while Lambert misses with a right. Lacroix lands a left and Lambert connects with two rights. Both men miss with a right and pull in close. Lambert lands a short right before removing Lacroix's helmet. He misses with two more rights while Lacroix misses with a left. They pause and the officials intervene.

Lacroix connected with more punches than Lambert to secure the win.

Lambert and Lacroix had a decent scrap. Denny missed a couple of punches and landed a decent left. Daniel missed a punch and landed a decent shot. Lambert missed a punch, landed an average shot, and missed a blow. Lacroix landed a solid shot and missed a punch. He landed a partial connect and missed a punch. Denny missed two punches and landed a decent right. He missed a couple of blows. Daniel missed a punch and landed a partial connect. The refs stopped the fight.

I rate this as a narrow win for Lacroix. He landed with better pop and a little more frequency.

Shit fight, until the end when Lacroix lands about 6 or 7 unanswered for the win.

Dennis Vial narrow win Fun 
7
Dennis Vial and Dan Kordic do battle. Kordic has a significant advantage in size and reach, but these guys are pretty equal in terms of strength, toughness, and punching power. Vial fearlessly went toe-to-toe with the bigger Kordic. He managed to get inside on Kordic and it paid off.

Both guys swung away with huge punches, but Vial was connecting better and more frequently. Several of Kordic's haymakers went wide of the target, while Vial was more accurate. Despite absorbing some heavy right hands, Kordic hung in there.

The two heavyweights paused for a moment and waltzed around the ice, appearing to rest momentarily before continuing with the slugfest. After both men got in a few more shots, the linesmen decided to step in.

Overall, Vial landed more shots, so he gets the edge in a real battle of staying power. A good fight.

Vial and Kordic take turns throwing at the start, then have a nice toe-to-toe segment where each throw 6 or 7 punches and land well. The second half of the fight Kordic looks tired, taking noticeable deep breaths and Vial has more left in the tank but Kordic ties up his right hand effectively and neither really lands much of significance.

Awesome fight here. They start off by wrestling and not much is happening. Vial is able to get Kordic's helmet off and they go toe-to-toe briefly each landing a few rights. Kordic switches hands and goes with the left and he lands some lefts just as Vial lands the rights. They start wrestling again and Kordic gets Vial's helmet off and he lands 2 rights. Kordic goes with his left again as Vial lands a few more rights and they go toe-to-toe and just slug it out and they both land some great shots. They start grappling and they've tied each other up pretty well and neither can get free although they are both trying. They skate around the ice both trying to get free but they're still tied up and they're yapping it up as well. Vial is finally able to get free and he lands 2 lefts before kordic responds with a left that hits Vial's shoulder. They each land another left on the other but they are really whipped at this point and Vial lands 1 more left as they circle around glaring at each other and he throws 1 more right at Kordic before the linesmen finally come in but not before they throw a few more punches at each other. Draw in a awesome toe-to-toe fight which was one of the best of the 96-97 season!

Vial threw more but with less accuracy than Kordic, hence a draw in this great bout.
