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

Posted by blackngold on January 24, 2011 at 08:55 PM

Hey Girardi if you're gonna step up for a fallen teammate and fight, at least look more interested than the other guy...

Posted by durka on January 28, 2011 at 02:08 PM

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.

Posted by Juha82 on January 23, 2011 at 03:41 AM

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.

Posted by ThrowdownSJ408 on January 22, 2011 at 11:37 PM

thought this fight would suck, ended up not bad. Draw or edge Ladd

Posted by Behn Wilson on January 23, 2011 at 04:59 PM

Pretty well even, until...Bonk!

Posted by youthattack on January 23, 2011 at 12:06 PM

girardi finally stands up for a teammate, but gets the loss here.

Posted by Clark75 on January 24, 2011 at 11:01 AM

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.

Posted by QUIGGS22 on January 22, 2011 at 11:51 PM

win Ladd

Posted by matt>go habs go on January 23, 2011 at 08:05 PM

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

Posted by staceyb on January 23, 2011 at 07:17 AM

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.

Posted by bruins rule on January 23, 2011 at 07:46 AM

ladd gets the win in this fight.

Posted by NYRfan15 on January 25, 2011 at 04:20 PM

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!

Posted by lb1631 on January 24, 2011 at 08:43 AM

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.

Posted by Sasky001 on January 22, 2011 at 11:27 PM

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.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on January 23, 2011 at 02:40 AM

Ladd threw some bombs. Gets the W

Posted by tonydomi1 on January 23, 2011 at 09:37 AM

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.

Posted by FotiuNystrom on January 25, 2011 at 09:28 AM

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.

Posted by GarthButcher on January 23, 2011 at 03:28 AM

Girardi is brave. Ladd is wicked strong. No contest.

Posted by sulley71 on January 23, 2011 at 12:08 PM

Nice win for Ladd and good sportsmanship too!

Posted by rforjr on January 22, 2011 at 11:39 PM

Ladd at the end of a shift still dominates with 2 on the button

Posted by GreatMurray on January 25, 2011 at 08:35 AM

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.

Posted by jlk on January 23, 2011 at 10:04 AM

nice dance

Posted by tpr1960 on January 24, 2011 at 10:54 PM

I love it the idiot Ranger jumps in and gets his ass kicked !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Bluetiedown44 on January 23, 2011 at 12:12 AM

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.

Posted by jim_mckenzie33 on January 22, 2011 at 11:35 PM

Girardi was running a little hot and Ladd gave him a good tune up....ice your beak Danny.

Posted by rocky 1 on January 23, 2011 at 02:56 AM

They talked and then they rocked.Ladd gets the better shots in so win Ladd!

Posted by nycbob on January 23, 2011 at 02:08 PM

gave to giradi, for sticking up for staal. Giradis been in 2 fightand been hurt in both - time to quit i think.

Posted by bradyj4 on January 24, 2011 at 03:07 PM

Good lil scrap

Posted by mvmuck on January 23, 2011 at 10:31 AM

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

Posted by TasCat on January 23, 2011 at 06:41 AM

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..

Posted by Fl4mefern0 on January 23, 2011 at 10:53 PM

Solid fight, both players equally mad. Both tired pretty quick tho. I give the W to Ladd instead of draw because he drew blood

Posted by TrueBlue26 on January 23, 2011 at 11:22 AM

Borderline hit good for Girardi for stepping in

Posted by evan29 on January 23, 2011 at 12:53 PM

draw, and fyi, girardi's nose wasn't broken, he just pulled a muscle in his ribs. good try though.
