A nice little scrum in the Rangers zone ensues after Stepan high-sticks Zacha.Reply

Miles Wood grabs a Pavel Buchnevich turnover and goes up ice but is steered to the wing by Nick Holden. As Holden plays the body on Wood, Wood loses his balance and control of the puck. Holden finishes Wood hard, rubbing him directly into the glass turnbuckle at the end of the bench. Wood gets to his feet and chases after Holden, dropping the gloves as Holden is grabbed by Nick Lappin. Lappin lets go when Wood gets there, forcing Holden's head down and throwing punches. Everyone gathers in and Holden drops the gloves but can't get himself set until a linesman reaches in between them. Meanwhile Lappin is grabbed by Brendan Smith and pulled away while Jimmy Vesey pairs off with Blake Coleman after grabbing at Lappin. Smith drops the gloves and throws a couple at Lappin who just turns away while Vesey and Coleman drop the gloves. The other linesman gets between Smith and Lappin while Wood wrestles Holden back to the endboards and gets him down there, the linesman still between them all the while. The other linesman then steps back to let Smith and Lappin fight while Vesey and Coleman throw some punches but soon tumble to the ice. Damon Severson is held back by Oscar Lindberg from getting in on Smith when he's fighting Lappin and Severson has some words for Lindberg, and then Buchnevich, as things die down. Wood is still mad and Holden and jaws with him as well before exiting the ice. Coleman and Vesey give each other a pat and break up on their own. Pretty tempestuous brawl between these longtime rivals. Three fights broke out in succession but none of them really got going or lasted long and the whole brawl was over in a half minute. Fun

Lappin and Smith at the 28 second mark looked like they each threw a punch at one another and then later in the clip showing the Vesey fight Smith clearly threw a punch at Lappin.Reply

And, as is so common in today's watered down league, a 30 second mini-brawl from :13 to :43 immediately ends after it begins with friendly mutual break ups, #40 on the Devils giving his opponent a friendly post-fight love tap to the shoulder (followed I think by a gentle caress to his opponents face after the shoulder tap) and, of course, very quick skates direct to the penalty box. And the over-hyped announcer asking if this the "first round of the playoffs?" as if to imply the NHL playoffs of this boring watered down league are just chalk full of this type of fighting. And of course, a 7.3 -- a grade slightly below some of the 'grades' of 7.5 and 8 that full bench clearing brawls from the mid-80's used to garner. Just shows how low the expectations have gotten.Reply

Remember the commercials back in the day about the back-to-back-to-back AAU champions baseball instructional training video. That commercial ran about 10 or 15 years beyond when the team was relevant. I remember asking myself, what have you accomplished lately. Sorta reminds me of people who once contributed something of value to this site and haven't in about five years. I love the critics of our site acting like we are missing something because of their limited input here. No one cares what the curmudgeons with self-inflated importance think here. I'm calling out some of the people who have done nothing here lately, but want to criticize the site. Keep living in the past and celebrate those back-to-back-to-back AAU championships and crab that the young whippersnappers don't know the game. Get off my lawn while you are at it.Reply

Allow me to respond to you calling out "some people" by calling you out directly for doing nothing now but kissing the site administrator's ass. I have my reasons for doing and saying what I do and say and if you are incapable of deciphering the code, that is your problem and not mine. One doesn't have to "live in the past" just because they don't see the so-called improvements of the future. Perhaps you should direct your judgment towards those who have not and likely will not contribute anything at all or maybe you should just mind your own business.

If you disagree that the NHL has become soft, then by all means, share your opinion and back it up. If you think that this site is better because people now only rate the exciting fights with either lots of blood or a KO then that is your prerogative. If you think having 15 people rate a fight but none actually review it just so you feel competitive with HF.com then you are part of the problem of which I speak.

I feel sorry for you if you are one who thinks progress is defined as making changes to a system that wasn't really in need of any. Not everything has to be "PC" and it's still okay to speak your mind but at least do it with some balls. Of course all of this is lost if your main objective is providing lip service by trying to undress someone for stating their opinion.

All you do is get on this site and complain. My contributions to this site blow away yours. You have done nothing of value on here for years. I'm not endorsing the current style of hockey. Just calling out people who are useless to this site and just want to cry and complain.Reply

If you think HF.com can hold a candle to this site I can only wonder aloud what you are talking about. We have real fight fans here, the kind you only find in some "remember when" posts and best of all the mods do a great job of eliminating the trolls that have ruined HF.com. You also don't have mods like chilly who attack people from the safety of their computers like the pussies they are. The videos are easier to find and view plus there are many more of them, especially the older fights and the reviews are no better on HF.com than they are there, I see plenty of reviews where people simply list "draw" or "nice right gives player A the win", no different than here.
Yes hockey sucks these days, yes all fight sites have taken some backward steps as the sport becomes so degraded and loses so many hard core, lifetime fans, I think we can all agree on this but this site is much, much better than HF.com!

The only thing the HF.com Mods did is kiss each other's ass and get rid of those who disagreed with them making it a useless site. And I can say that as I was one of the originals from back in 98.Reply

Thanks for the compliment. No.7 entrusted me with the task to get rid of the trolls several years ago. There are a lot of jerks we have gotten rid of. People who don't like our site should go elsewhere. There is certainly a place for critizing the way the sport has gone soft. I like the guys who reminisce about old time hockey like yourself. That adds a lot of value to our site.

Thanks for recognizing the importance of bettering our site by subtraction. I don't think the trolling problem is anywhere near what it was in years past. We have EC, ChrisY2J, SarcasticPillow, Mullet, VipersLad, Knight77, Boreal, HB11, Zolika, ReggieJax77, O'NeilltheGiant, and other great contributors. This is the best hockey site around.

I was an early member as well joining around 2001, I had "hall of fame" status and was still mocked and ridiculed at every turn by chilly and some of the other mods because I hated new hockey and would vent at times. It got to the ridiculous stage when Chilly deleted many of my posts or would edit them to fit his way of thinking so I left. The site had gone downhill significantly in recent years anyway and nearly all of the legit hockey fans and fight fans had left. If you ask me of the fight sites I've visited HF.com is by far the worst one out there.Reply

You and the other mods do a great job here Battleship, I echo your thoughts that this is a fight site and if you don't like reading people vent about the horrible way hockey is played these days then leave.

This is by far the best hockey fight site going if you are actually someone who enjoys watching fights and one who doesn't want to put up with crap from people that have no clue how hockey was once played. Keep up the great work!

Miles Wood clear win Fun 
4
Nick Holden hits Miles Wood into the turnbuckle and Wood gets up livid with Holden. Wood rushes right at Holden and drops the gloves as Nick Lappin grabs Holden from behind. Holden ducks away as Lappin lets go and it takes Wood a couple moments to get his grip set. Once done however Wood throws six rights and lands five to the helmet and visor of Holden, who just keeps ducking but drops the gloves too. A linesman grabs at Wood as Holden lifts his head and throws three rights, landing one. Wood now ducks and tries to get in close while Holden grabs Wood's helmet and visor. Wood drives Holden backward into the boards and then down to the ice where they're finally broken up. Short scrap and all Wood. He definitely jumped Holden after a pretty rough hit. Holden tried to come back but only once a linesman had gotten involved.

Brendan Smith narrow win Fun 
3
Brendan Smith pulls Nick Lappin away from Nick Holden and then drops the gloves as everyone else converges in on the brawl. Lappin drops the gloves so Smith readies and misses a left while Lappin leans away. Smith pushes Lappin to the boards and misses another left as Lappin gets turned around completely. A linesman grabs at Smith but Lappin turns back and wants to fight so the linesman backs out and allows the two to continue. Smith misses a right and switches hands while Lappin misses a right. Smith then throws three lefts, landing two as Lappin ducks and then falls down missing a right. Smith misses a left and falls on top of Lappin but gets up fast. Smith just stays on top of Lappin, drawing in Damon Severson, who's held back by Oscar Lindberg. Poor fight. Smith was the aggressor and sharper of the two and earned the slight edge.

limited camera coverage. Each had dropped the gloves and from video smith missed with two punches and Lappin missed with one, otherwise looked like a linesman had them separated.

Blake Coleman grabs Jimmy Vesey in the brawl and they drop the gloves without much hesitation. They get a hold on each other and move to open ice where Coleman throws two rights and lands one. Coleman reaches over the top for Vesey's helmet and visor as Vesey lands a right. Coleman can't quite grip it but reaches again and then pulls it off while Vesey misses a right. Coleman adjusts his own helmet and visor after throwing Vesey's aside. Coleman then misses a right as Vesey pushes and pulls on Coleman and then misses a right. Coleman misses a right and that sends them both to the ice with Coleman on top. Neither man looks to continue the fight and they break up giving each other a pat before skating off the ice. Bad fight between two non-fighters.
