Draw Fun 
Dave Roche gets into it with Mikael Renberg and Rod Brind'Amour is quick to jump in, trading some shoves with Roche. Renberg goes back after Roche though and after some more pushing and shoving, Brind'Amour steps in again, with his gloves off, and grabs Roche. Roche drops his gloves and grabs onto Brind'Amour. Roche pulls Brind'Amour's head down as they wrestle and then misses a right while Brind'Amour gets his head up. Roche pushes Brind'Amour against the boards but can't get his right free from Brind'Amour's grip. Brind'Amour misses a right and they continue to wrestle until Brind'Amour pushes Roche against the boards. Roche gestures to the linesmen, unable to get free from Brind'Amour and they step in to break it up. Awful fight. It was all wrestling with both guys missing a single punch. Brind'Amour did well defensively, keeping the much more experienced and bigger Roche from getting anything going in this fight.

After Roche roughed it up with Renberg Brind'Amour came in to help out. The outcome was just a quick wrestling match, both threw a meaningless punch.

Draw Fun 
Daniel Lacroix checks Alek Stojanov against the boards and the two shed the mitts afterwards. They get a grip of each other's jerseys and Lacroix keeps his head down as Stojanov throws a series of ten rights, landing five before pausing to get Lacroix's helmet off. Stojanov then continues, missing three rights. Lacroix then lands a left and misses a left as Stojanov lands a right. Lacroix misses a left but then lands lands a left again while Stojanov misses a right and goes off balance. Stojanov gets in tight and gets his balance back while Lacroix throws three lefts, landing two. Stojanov misses a right and then Lacroix misses a left as Stojanov stands back. Stojanov then lands a right as Lacroix misses a left, then misses a left while Stojanov lands a right but goes off balance again. Lacroix misses a left. Stojanov gets in tight but goes down soon after, pulling Lacroix down too. The linesmen get in and break it up as Lacroix lands a left. Fairly entertaining fight between these two tough guys. Lacroix did well with the big heavyweight, Stojanov, coming back late in the fight after Stojanov had the advantage early on. Draw.

Alek Stojanov clear win Fun 
Stojanov is cruising to an easy victory it looks like before Lacroix battles back, countering Alek's rights with his left, Stojanov comes back on again to get the decision though.

Good fight. It was all Stojanov early, as he was just pounding away on Lacroix, but as usual, Lacroix comes back nicely in the second half and hammers on Stojanov. This fight is a really good draw.

Punch count is above.
I think that we need a blow-by-blow for that.
