Looks like the Maple Leafs got lucky again smh...
Who started the fight?
Ovechkin outweighs Svechnikov by 50 lbs. Surely Svechnikov should have known better.
Avalanche Sign Cale Makar.
Friday Night: Won the Hobey Baker award
Saturday Night: Played in the College National Title game. (U Mass Vs, Minn. Duluth)
Sunday: Signs 3 year deal Colorado
Monday: Scores goal in 1st period of his first game on his first shot in the Playoffs against the team he grew up cheering for.
Svechnikov trying to give his team a much needed boost which fights can do but if you fight in the playoffs it’s usually desperation as the minutes on the ice are precious during this time of year.....at least that’s how the game used to look at it when I was into it.....
Svechnikov should have known better.
It would be like you starting a fight with me
He should have known better but if he won (and he severely underestimated his opponent) it could have helped and considering he may be (don’t know for sure but an educated guess here) expendable and could sit for a few minutes without much impact to the team, he had his orders from the top and executed them
Quote from Ovi.
"First of all I hope he's okay," Ovechkin said. "I'm not a big fighter. He' the same. He asked me to fight... I hope he's okay. You don't want to see a guy get hurt."
Hockey fights aren't based strictly off winning or losing. If a smaller guy steps up and gets KTFO it can still pumped up his team's bench for showing a level of manhood. This guy is 19 and that was his first fight. Great experience assuming no real injury was sustained.
He also gets the other teams best player of the ice for 5 minutes. The injury is unfortunate but I'm sure his teammates love him for it.
I was under the impression that typically bigger guys don't start fights with smaller guys, that it's sort of an unwritten rule or some shit.
I hope that's not true because I'm going to Windsor later this year and I was going to specifically target @Queen Ronda at the ammy ice hockey rink
You're so old they didn't even use skates back then.
Why don't we start a "things CMNH doesn't know about fighting" mega thread?
Better video with more angles
You're actually really lucky there was such a cool fight.
It's made Americans give a shit about the sport for more than 5 minutes.
You think there’s weight classes in the streets, you sloppy Bitch?!?
This post got me so mad that I had to go outside and blow off some steam.
Typically yes but according to Ovi he was invited to scrap and you don't say no. But of you're smaller but a mouth piece or chippy the big guys will crush you eventually. Targeting Sex Chicken is a great plan. He's a massive pussy but can probably skate. Safe to assume you've never seen ice outside of a cup but you possess devastating power.
Wow #8 is already up 2-0 on #1 Tampa less then 5 minutes into the first period with a 3-0 lead in the series.
Sure does look like it. What a choke if Tampa Bay does get swept after their amazing regular season...
That call sucked. These coaches challenges are wrecking the game.
Yeah Tampa is already a shithole.
This is the last thing that city needed.
Columbus up 3-1 (again)
and we've got a brouhaha!
Smells like choke
7-3 Columbus. And Columbus sweeps the runaway regular season champs Tampa Bay in four straight games!
