Neil with the early lead, but Shelly with the better finish, give credit to Neal for taking on the much bigger Shelly who didn't want to go with Carkner earlier in the third period. I guess Jody didn't want to go in case he would of lost on his home turf.....
If you had watched the whole game, Carkner played like a ***** cat and Neil was running around all over the place, included a cheap play at the end of the 2nd period where he hit Carter into Bobrovsky. That's why Shelley went after Neil instead of Carkner. If Carkner wants the action, he needs to play with more of an edge.
Neil deserved this one... he was trying to goat POWE of all people into fighting the entire night. Shelley didn't even want to fight him, we were 3 rows off the ice and Shelley was mouthing "why? you sure you want to?" and then just went at it. Neil with an early flurry but Shelley dominated at the end for the Win.
Shelley has the reach and Neil loses his lid. Neil got in vicious uppercuts. Shelley hammers the capable Neil. When Neil misses with the big left Shelley is able to get behind him and end the fight. Shelley should have faced up to Carkner.
