The knock out punch. They can come at anytime, depending on the situation, and they almost always get the same reaction. Shock, awe and concern for the knocked out party.

That was no more evident last Saturday in the AHL game between the Bakersfield Condors and the Stockton Heat. The 19-year-old Calgary Flames prospect, Martin Pospisil went looking for a dance partner in Edmonton Oilers 24-year-old Colby Cave. The fight that ensued was a spirited back and forth battle until the product of North Battleford, Saskatchewan, Cave caught Pospisil and knocked him out.

Colby Cave vs Martin Pospisil – October 19th, 2019

If you’re reading this article, you probably have seen the KO but linked above is the whole fight.

The reason for this article is not so much to re-live the knock out, as it is to pay respect to both guys for what they did/have done since.

As I have written before, sometimes you’re the guy who gets caught:

Open letter to Andrei Svechnikov

Whether that is from a fight, or from an open ice hit on an unsuspecting player, the message is the same, take time to recover (whatever that means for you personally) and get back to it.

Pospisil was up and tweeting the next day about the fight and he only had good things to say about it, as his fellow dance partner reached out to make sure he was ok:

That is a great thing to see because at the end of the day, no one wants to see anyone hurt. The whole play from top to bottom is a show of that.

  • Cave can be immediately seen as concerned for Pospisil’s well being.
  • The trainer of the Condors came out onto the ice on his own accord to see if there was anything that could be done to help the Heat’s own trainer.
  • Then to cap it all off, Cave reaches out to see if Pospisil is ok, and Martin himself is already rearing to go again and get back on the ice.

You love to see it. The toughness to answer the bell, and the respect afterwards.

In a league where the hate from most of the classic rivalries has turned into “buddy buddy” friendships, last night’s preseason tilt between Vegas Golden Knights and San Jose Sharks was a glimpse into what might be the best rivalry in hockey right now. After putting up 114 combined penalty minutes in last night’s game (and one fight), luckily for us we don’t have to wait long to see this heated match-up to continue as the season opening night-cap is the Knights and Sharks.

I’m not here to tell Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens fans what was the most storied rivalry of all times. Sit down Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames fans who are here to complain about the 80’s and when they were last truly a relevant match up with some actual heat. Right now, from where I blog, the Vegas Golden Knights and San Jose Sharks are THE match up to watch when you want to see two teams that really seem to despise each other.

The Case For It:

Since the Knights entered the league, the two teams have been battling it out for the top spot of the Pacific division. The Sharks, themselves an expansion team back in 1991-92, took *only* two years to find themselves in the playoffs. The Golden Knights, likely because of their Hockey Training, found a way to blow the collective minds of the entire NHL when in their first year, they made it all the way to the Stanley Cup finals (after beating the Sharks in seven games of round two).

The NHL’s desire to try and manufacture rivalries with the new playoff format has perhaps been no more successful than with this Sharks/Knights match-up. Everyone remembers last year and the chaos around this hit:

And the eventual, improbable, fantastic comeback the Sharks and co. put on as a result.

That kind of moment really solidifies what could be one of the most exciting schedule of games between two teams this year.

The Other Guys:

As I mentioned before, this isn’t to say that this rivalry will replace the hate that other, longer standing feuds that there are. Simply, I just think the Sharks/Knights match ups are our best chance to see the good old hockey. Let’s have a look at some of the others.

Montreal/Boston –

This is the hallmark for hatred in this league. The fans, the broadcasters, the hate, the history is all there, but it just feels like since 2011 and the goalie fight:

We just haven’t seen the same heat on the ice. I hope it comes back soon.

Philadelphia/Pittsburgh –

The fans are the ones keeping this one alive. Sure the players have some heat there, but it just hasn’t had the same powder keg feel to it in recent years. 2014-15 was the last real hurrah for this rivalry as a top dog.

Calgary/Edmonton –

The 80’s were a great time to be alive if you were a fan of the Battle of Alberta. Over the years it has been sparked up from time to time, but for the most part these teams are trading players, more than trading fisticuffs. These guys sure did their weight training!

So there it is, my take on what is the best rivalry now in the NHL going into the 2019-20 season. Think I am wrong? Prove me so in the comments below.

It’s an undercurrent that is building among the leagues and the debate of the reasons behind it will continue on. Today the ECHL’s new rule this season came to light. Every time a player hits 10 fights in the season (of which there were 18 players last year) they will be suspended for one game.

As the tweet/rule says, if you eclipse 14 fights in the season, each additional fight will be a two game suspension.

In the NHL, there has been a clear directive (in my opinion, allegedly) in the last year/two years to have linesmen interrupt the fight if there is even a slight opening.

Examples from this preseason alone:

Haley vs Stewart

Kaut vs Seeler

From where I blog, I would imagine that this rule change really won’t stop much from the true fighters in the league. One game/two games? Well worth.

At the end of the day, hockey players are adults and as the science continues to roll out, we respect those who continue to police the game and maintain the code. It’s been a point of frustration to our followers all over the social media, but what do you think about the move?

As we patiently await Game Seven of the Stanley Cup Final between the Bruins and the Blues, we have been bantering around the hockeyfights table what to do with the dog days of summer when there is even less fighting than this year’s playoffs, somehow. Then the idea hit us, BRACKETS, and then we thought back to the rage I (Nation Dan) created when I tried to give a smattering of every kind of fighter imaginable.

Then we took to the airwaves and found a couple of new partners in podcasting and in general and we partnered up with @4thlinevoice. In them we brought in the foremost voice of brackets for top fighters of all-time and with it, a new bracket is born. Much better run, and less upsetting to you the fans here at Hockeyfights.com.

As well, with the new format of Hockeyfights.com we have been able to tease down our data in the back end and will be bringing you the top 100 fights of 2018-19 (and that will be any fight we clipped over the last calendar year) as well as the Top 100 NHL fights of all-time, ranked by you the fans as a countdown to the 2019-20 season.

Hockeyfights.com is proud to be your source for all the fights of yesteryear and the place where you can come and see today’s fighters and players too.

One of the most intriguing brawls ever to be witnessed was the pregame brawl that occurred during the 1987 NHL playoffs between Prince of Wales Conference finalists Philadelphia & Montreal.  According to those who were on the ice, the Flyers had enough of Montreal’s ritual of shooting the puck in the other teams net as their pregame skate came to a close.  This time, Ed Hospodar remained close by, as both teams exited the ice surface.  As he saw Claude Lemieux & Shayne Corson come back onto the ice, Hospodar & backup goalie Glenn “Chico” Resch made a b-line for the two Canadiens forwards.  Resch tried to grab Corson, who had shot the puck, then threw his stick to stop the puck, but missed.  Hospodar grabbed onto Lemieux and began to administer frontier justice for breaking one of hockey’s unwritten codes, as well as one of hockey’s written rules about warm ups, and staying in your own end.  Maybe it was to try and gain an advantage, maybe it was to put the final nail in Montreal’s coffin, maybe it was just policing the ice in old time hockey fashion.  Either way, this minor event touched off one of the biggest brawls, let alone pregame brawls, that has ever occurred in professional hockey.

Philadelphia would win the game and the series 4 – 2.  Hard to believe this was the conference championship game.  I have never seen the post game handshake from this series, nor do I know if it happened (we assume it did).  The Flyers would eventually lose to the Edmonton Oilers in the Stanley Cup Finals, but on this night it was the Broad Street Bullies who would once again flex their muscle in an attempt to gain an advantage, intimidate, and finally eliminate their opponent from the playoffs.

Both teams seemed to have plenty of muscle dressed for the pre-game skate.  Montreal had Corson, John Kordic, Chris Nilan, & Mike McPhee; as well as a good core of support guys like Sergio Momesso, Larry Robinson, and others.  The Flyers, who always boasted a very physical team, had Hospodar, Dave Brown, Daryl Stanley, Don Nauchbaur, Mike Stothers, Rick Tocchet, & Scottt Mellanby.  With both teams unwilling to back down an inch, the inevitable occurred.

We have tried to include as much of the media coverage as we could find for this one.  We are also happy to include some modern day comments from people like Dave Brown, & Glenn “Chico” Resch.  To this day, this brawl still makes the hair on my neck stand up.  As Mickey Redmond, the long time color man for the Detroit Red Wings would say:  “It’s no place for a nervous person.” 

The Skinny:

  • Ed Hospodar was suspended for the remainder of the playoffs.
  • No penalties were assessed during the brawl itself
  • $24,500 in fines were handed out
  • The brawl delayed the broadcast 17 minutes, enough time for the affiliates to show the mayhem
  • There was only 1 Fight when the game was finally played Scott Mellanby Vs Sergio Momesso

As well as going through his catalog season by season we took the time to compile the laundry list of his fights against one of his biggest rivals, Donald Brashear, into a complete list of the 8 fights he had.

There was a ninth fight between the two that we recovered some “lost footage” of but because the NHL doesn’t maintain records of preseason games from the 1997 season, we have been unable to log when the fight actually happened between Bob and Donald. Here is the footage of that fight:

Dear Andrei,

First time writer (to you), long time watcher. It is with the purest of intentions that I must write you this letter of thanks and appreciation. We here at hockeyfights.com appreciate every single player that is willing to drop the gloves, whether it’s a top line guy like yourself (or Ovechkin), to the guys trying to make a living in Junior A, B, and C, and not to mention the guys keeping the dream alive in their own rec leagues. So, to start this thing off, thank you for challenging someone to a fight.

I don’t think you challenged your fellow countryman (and probably your hero) Alexander Ovechkin to a fight expecting to get knocked out so cleanly. It happened and you’re a pro that will move on from it.

I don’t think you don’t agree with your head coach (Rod Brind’Amour) who upon seeing you go down so hard had this to say about the need for fighting in hockey:

because as I am sure you would agree, if you had instead knocked the snot out of Ovechkin, his tune would have been very different.

I don’t think you agree with this random observer of your loss last night:

because the logic displayed here (although seamless, save for the whole “mutual combat” clause of law) is easily applied to many things on a daily baseless.

If I could offer one simple piece of advice to you; if you have some time this offseason, visit hockeyfights.com and study up on what your teammate Michael Ferland has done and been doing correctly in his fights. Just want to see you challenging people to fights again soon, and holding your own!

All that aside, once again my friend, thank you for keeping the fights going. The entire hockey world hopes you recover nicely from this and are back to your scoring ways soon.

Signed,

Dan
