Looks like Ott went looking for it and picked his spot by going after Justin.
Abdelkader gets leverage on Ott at the end but more impresively, shows us how good his balance is on skates.
Ott frustarated as he didn't get the result he was looking for...
i might have blushed a little bit watching that. nice to see the red wing land one nice shot there after ott tried to bend him over. full marks to the red wings girls. not sure if abdelkader had much time to lose the bucket, seemed like they were dropping the gloves and ott was throwing. draw and a 4.
Say what you want about Abdelkader but I give him props for coming out of the NCAA and at least trying to fight. He's getting better, he didnt have 4 years in the whl like most guys to learn how to fight great.
Gets a w over an experienced solid middle weight.
And you guys are really chirping him for pulling the jersey up like that? getting jerseyed happens in a lot of fights its pretty common
This was like watching two fights. In the first Steve Ott pounded Abdelkader. But Ott couldn't finish the job. Funny too since Ott had a massive advantage in size and experience. Abdelkader chaulks up the 'W' in this one. PS Steve Ott is and always will be a bitch
As a wings fan glad to see Abdelkader didn't get beat again. I'll give the kid an E for effort however he don't get the win. I'm not an Ott fan but he should have beat Abdelkader outright. Ott looks for it, Abdelkader does well enough to not get another loss to his record. I give it a draw and a 4. Brad May might have smiled at his effort on this one.
