Edge to Ladd, who appeared to land a couple. It didn't look like the hit was ill-intentioned, the result just looked ugly.
Ladd with a clean hit to Stall. Girardi challenges Ladd and then got his nose broken. Win Ladd
Hey Girardi if you're gonna step up for a fallen teammate and fight, at least look more interested than the other guy...
girardi broke his ribs during this, leaving the blueshirts down another rather good player. win ladd
win Ernie the Big Cat Ladd
Ladd picked his shots well here, while Girardi didn't really land anything of consequence. Good rights from Ladd for the win.
Girardi did the right think but Ladd landed more and won. But i vote draw instead for this stupid, unnecessary, dangerous hit.
both did nice job for non-figthers. DRAW in my eyes. Ladd with one good shot or two. Girardi with more.
What is it with the Rangers punching players on the back of the helmet ? The last time Newbury fought he punched a guy in the back of the helmet 5 or 6 times. That only hurts your fist, never your opponent. I'm not a fan of body punches in hockey fights either, are you softening up your opponent so that you can take him out in round number 7? You have 5 seconds in most hockey fights to get your shots in, aim for the face.
Okay fight. Always like guys standing up for team mates. I call it a draw.
thought this fight would suck, ended up not bad. Draw or edge Ladd
Pretty well even, until...Bonk!
girardi finally stands up for a teammate, but gets the loss here.
LOL! What was Girardi laughing at? How hard he got popped in the face by Ladd? Keep skating with your head down so no one can see you bleed. Win Ladd. If your gonna step up for someone, make sure you win. Otherwise you look like a tool.
Nice to see girardi step up for the hit on staal and it was also nice to see ladd not pumping him when he could have. I don't think ladd was putting too much effort in this fight and that' respectable
A broken schnoz for Girardi for his efforts. The Rangers lost both Girardi and Prust for the third period yet they rallied for the win in the SO.
ladd gets the win in this fight.
I think Girardi was holding his own up until the last punch he took to the face... I give the win to Ladd but good try to Girardi!
Now i know why Girardi didn't jump in when Carcillo was killing Gaborik. Girardi can't fight worth a lick. Give him a little credit for sticking up for Staal and getting slapped around.
Girardi steps in to defend his team mate on a bad hit. He lost, but did better than I thought he would. Good form him.
Ladd threw some bombs. Gets the W
This turned out to be a decent scrap! Kudos to Girardi for stepping in and helping his defense mate. Ladd caught him with a solid right to the shnooze! Game over. Ladd could have kept going but saw Girardi was in trouble and backed off. Nice gamesmanship! Unless my eyes deceive me, but wasn't that pu$$y boy Avery looking on?!? I guess ladd is to good of a fighter for Avery to jump in... This coming from a Ranger fan.
I thought hit was clean- Regardless-Props to Girardi stepping up for all star partner- Decent scrap, fairly even 'til Ladd caught him n drew blood-Nice job Ladd-respecting another player enough to stop when he knew G was done.
Girardi is brave. Ladd is wicked strong. No contest.
Nice win for Ladd and good sportsmanship too!
Ladd at the end of a shift still dominates with 2 on the button
Good hit. Too bad they wanna fight after every good hit. Girardi got his azz kicked big time. Lots of guts to go after Ladd. Kind of like Keith Magnuson. Fight alot but lose them all. Ladd pulled out when he saw Girardi's war wound.
I love it the idiot Ranger jumps in and gets his ass kicked !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dangerous hit, good on Giradi for stepping up, but it cost him. Ladd looked like a solid, veteran fighter with the edge on Giradi. Locked the left and hammered rights to the head, while Giradi was reaching the shoulder of Ladd with energetic blows.
Girardi was running a little hot and Ladd gave him a good tune up....ice your beak Danny.
They talked and then they rocked.Ladd gets the better shots in so win Ladd!
gave to giradi, for sticking up for staal. Giradis been in 2 fightand been hurt in both - time to quit i think.
Good lil scrap
to me it looked like gerardi won despite the one or 2 shots ladd got in... gerardi threw way more shots.. ill call it a draw
There are a lot of put downs on Jersey Jabs...but I'm not sure if one of those did the damage to Girardi's nose! It almost looked like the Apollo Creed jabs to Rocky Balboa in Rocky.. not holding a jersey of course. But those three quick and hard jabs put Girardi's efforts to stand up for his team mate a little costly...to his face. But then it also could have been one of those first two right hooks that followed... Girardi started off well, then all Ladd, but one of the better uses of the jersey jab I've noticed this year, although I'm an old school rock 'em sock 'em robots type, they sure set up those right hooks, for Girardi's spirit, I gave it a Kind of Close rating, even though it ended with Ladd taking the high road and letting the linesman come in rather than just attempt to injure him more, realizing that this is Girardi's living too and letting him wear sunglasses for a couple of weeks and if no concussion, not giving him one. I don't comment often which is probably good ;-) but this was a good scrap showing team loyalty and sportsmanship by Girardi and Ladd respectively. This shows what fighting is about and a good example for new hockey fans who wonder why it's in the sport..besides the deadly weapons they carry..
Solid fight, both players equally mad. Both tired pretty quick tho. I give the W to Ladd instead of draw because he drew blood
Borderline hit good for Girardi for stepping in
draw, and fyi, girardi's nose wasn't broken, he just pulled a muscle in his ribs. good try though.
