DiPietro goes all ''Hextall-ish'', and gets ''Dave Richtered'' for his efforts.

I was watching this game and couldn't believe Brent "Son of Bob" Johnson skated down the ice in order to throttle Bonehead DP with a left, all with 17 seconds left in the game and a guaranteed shutout. I played goalie in college and it would have taken a bulldozer to push me out of the net with a shutout on the line.

Posted by teacherharry on February 03, 2011 at 12:59 PM

SHit...I feel bad for Rick!

Posted by mbaumann on February 03, 2011 at 10:06 AM

UUUUUM, He hit DiPietro, and then he lost his balance and fell. I would not call that getting dropped at all. He was not really ready for the punch, then lost hs balance after and fell. Weak shit.

Posted by DanielleinDC on February 02, 2011 at 11:54 PM

Lamest fucking goalie fight ever. And what's the point with 17 seconds left in the game?

Posted by bkotler752 on February 04, 2011 at 12:20 AM

DiPietro was laughing, not taking the fight seriously so Johnson's punch was kind of a suckerpunch. It was one and done though

Posted by jmg38 on February 03, 2011 at 11:04 AM

Draw. Actually I'd give it a "No Contest" if that was an option. Bush league move by Johnson to grab hold of DiPietro as he was taking off his helmet. And I hate both teams.

I love the way Johnson has his right ready to punch while DiP is on his back......What a pussy move Johnson.

Posted by alyboy on February 03, 2011 at 01:35 PM

As a long suffering Isles fan I gotta say DP is the stupidest goalie of all time, not to mention the worst fighting goalie of all time..please, please get hurt and retire allready you waste....Good golly you are embarrassing. He deserved the knockout punch for the stupid move he made on Cooke....I wish it was Cooke who ko'd him...Please, someone buy the islanders and get them off Long Island....I cant take it anymore

Posted by teejay on February 02, 2011 at 11:49 PM

BJ should have just kept pounding on him the little prick. There you go, you just got owned you stupid bitch.

Posted by Bad Dawg on February 03, 2011 at 08:39 AM

Is there a bigger A-hole then Cooke?! DiPietro will probably be on the injured list again! The Islanders are a sad sack of tits, time to move them to a Canadian venue.

Posted by Detroit_Caps on February 02, 2011 at 11:10 PM

run a goalie then turtle. . .typical Matt Crook. Any other team, he'd be suspended almost every game. . . Then Bret Johnsson beats up a cripple. . .

Posted by OGShocker on February 03, 2011 at 02:39 PM

Rick,.,.,,. What a JOKE! The only thing funnier was listening to these joke announcers. I hope Johnson waited in the parking lot for DiPietro after the game. The announcers are just straight up knuckleheads or they're sleeping with DiPietro. And before anyone accuses me of being a Penguins fan, that is not the case here. Let's go Kings!!!

Cooke's a thug, DiPietro's an idiot and what is Johnson doing 150' from his net? The drop downs should include "Stupid Waste of Time."

Posted by RedWings=Trash on February 03, 2011 at 03:43 AM

This doesn't deserve a 7.2, really. Crap fight. Losing faith in you, HF, because of stuff like this. And how does DiPietro get 3.8%? I might buy "Draw" as a non-fight, but how can you say that DiPietro won, he didn't even throw a punch! One punch KO, Brent Johnson

The continued pussification of the NHL

Posted by wheebill on February 03, 2011 at 04:26 PM

Nice to see Johnson oblige DiPietro and stand up for his teammate after Dipietro initiated the contact with Cooke. Usually the goalies will stand around and watch the melee they created. DiPietro asked, Johnson obliged and dropped his ass. This will go a long way with his teammates.

Posted by msaw1125 on February 03, 2011 at 05:30 PM

I have been watching DiPietro for years now and he claims that he can handle himself fairly well because he throws 'em with his left hand and not many people know this, funny thing is, when Johnson shows up, DiPietro gets caught with a left hand he never saw coming.......classic!!! I guess you can say nobody knew Johnson throws 'em with his left hand. :) Were the sorry arse Islander fans watching the game on tv chanting, Di Pi boom boom, Di Pi boom boom, Di Pi boom boom, Di Pi.........................

Posted by johnnyrock555 on February 03, 2011 at 07:29 PM

The Islanders need to start playing more aggressive. DiPietro is frustrated because he sits at the end of the ice and watches his team get stepped on all night. It would be nice if the Islanders stop scratching Gillies. Next time these two teams meet I would like to see the Islanders call up Yablonski. This moral high road BS never wins in the NHL.

Posted by skierleeub on February 03, 2011 at 06:59 PM

1 shot fight over. KO for Johnson. Kudos to DP for attempting to take out that punk Cooke though.

Posted by scorp1on on February 05, 2011 at 05:02 PM

Have to agree with musokaD... look like Johnson UFC'd him with a forearm/elbow strike rather than a punch. Check the crease in the jersey at Johnson's elbow at 1:47 when DP's face crumbles. Not an ounce of extension there boys... All elbow. Kinda dirty.

Posted by slavv on February 03, 2011 at 10:07 PM

Dipietro definitely was frustared and initiated the contact with cooked. I'm not a fan of goalie fights, normally, but in this case Johnson did what he needed to do. He showed a lot of class after the knockdown, and seemed concerned for DiPietro...

Posted by Caps44 on February 22, 2011 at 04:37 PM

DiP initiated it against Cooke & Brent responded. What a shame that he got injured and Cooke did not.

Posted by Andy_Hirt on February 02, 2011 at 10:56 PM

DiPietro was frustrated and angry. Cooke did absolutely nothing wrong. He was just working hard as Blysma (rightfully) insists. It's actually a bit pitiful (full of pity) to see see DiPietro do what he did. You could see Johnson really not wanting to kick someone who's already down. Pick a fight with Fleury? yes. Johnson? Hell no. It's like all those little guys they're bringing up from the Baby Pens. Have you taken a look on Hockeyfights of the guys in the AHL before they came up to the NHL? Kennedy, Connor, etc., they're all scrappers. Look at Kennedy the other night. Normally, he's not really allowed to fight, but he sure knew how to do it, didn't he (whining people about his flailing legs aside). The whole team's like that. Bylsma's been doing that silently, and on purpose.

Posted by sjedge1180 on February 04, 2011 at 01:23 PM

Rick DiPietro will miss the next four-to-six weeks due to facial fractures and knee swelling. I wonder why? First takes out Cooke in dirty fashion and then BJ comes across Ice with Di P smiling thinking its just fun and games and BOOM 1 punch breaks his face and you can watch the smile leave it. BJ wasn't kidding sorry man!

Posted by jlmcgui on February 02, 2011 at 10:23 PM

It cost Johnson a shut-out ... but what a way to go ... 1-punch TKO. DiPietro, cocky BU kid, is finally healthy and he goes looking for this? Just think, the Isle's still have 10 years left on that $67M contract ... bet they'd like to walk away from that one. DiPietro has always been a hot-head, he initiated w/ Matt Cook, got Brent Johnson and received a 1-punch beat down! Nice commentary on NHL Network recap; "Johnson put down DiPietro; quickly"!

HA HA that was hilarious. Too bad it wasn't Patty Roy that would even be better. Dipstick thinks he's a reincarnation of Billy Smith but ends up getting smoked. Maybe he should have kept his face protector on and then it would not have stung so much. Where is Stache 2 (Gillies) at this game. Did they send him back down and stick with Poptarts? Too bad. Total annihilation by the Johnson.

Posted by fridaymatinee on February 03, 2011 at 11:00 AM

How is this even on here if neither goalie got a fighting major? That would mean it's not even a fight. Either way ricky boy is a tard.

Wow,some of the posts here still dont cease to amaze. How the bloody hell can anyone pick DiPietro or a draw? And its a ko klowns. a ko means you were knocked down and cant continue, dont have to be literally knocked out...Oh what else? its a left hand not an elbow and to the goofy f*ck that said DiPietro lost his balance...go check the welt on lil Rickys face and ask him if he "fell". Lastly DiPi intiated the entire scene. it was a carry over from the last meeting b/w the pens and isles when cook was planted in front of dipi the whole game with a lot of contact b/w the two that lil ricky didnt like.

Hey sedinfan: It's nice to see someone who can see past their hate and call it like it is, quite unlike the annoncers who immediately called out Cooke, and then yukked yukked it off when they realized they were wrong. "Ricky looked like he initiated that", the one says. Yea, he did and he paid for it.

To the idiots who call elbow, a fist is attached to your wrist not an elbow you [email protected], slow down there slugger and learn something about hockey before you talkin your wannabe toughguy shit on the net.

Posted by bloodonyourlips on February 03, 2011 at 09:44 AM

Don't know what DiPietro's thinking with his history of concussions, easy K.O. for Johnson; would love to see someone KO Cooke for once, need to get rid of the stupid instigating rule and let the enforcers do their jobs without taking an extra penalty, would help with the respect factor in the game today.

Posted by Clark75 on February 04, 2011 at 05:14 PM

Wow! DiPietro is on the IR once again. This time for 4-6 weeks. Great signing by the Islanders.

Posted by irishcernic on February 03, 2011 at 02:04 AM

Awesome to see the goalies getting into the fray, I was about 15 rows up at the blue line and the whole arena went nuts when Johnson crossed center ice. Most of the crowd had already headed to their cars and man did they miss out! Exciting ending to a great home win for the Pens. @ tyrone, I know it's not going to make a difference, but look around 1:45 at the last two replays. You can clearly see his fist connected, not his elbow.... and to wish a career ending injury on anyone regardless of how much you hate them is just ridiculous Also @ cujoamoog check out DP's other fight on here and talk about **** moves. He beats on Montoya after he falls to the ice.

Posted by pmarz1 on February 03, 2011 at 09:23 AM

Once again, we have 5 to 6 douchebags casting moronic votes, in this case, for DiPietro/draw. What a joke. As for anyone trying to defend Matt Cooke on this play, watch the portion of the video at 1:20. He clearly is the one that changes direction and makes contact with DiPietro. Just because he was trying to take the shortest route to the puck doesnt give him the right to go through the goalie.

Posted by azguymike on February 03, 2011 at 02:19 PM

I wanted to vote for DP just to piss people off but I couldn't do it. That was such a shellacking I can't bring myself to vote for DP even as a joke.

Posted by btiger91 on February 03, 2011 at 11:25 AM

Awesome to see, only wish DiP would have been able to stand more than 1 punch. I don't DIp was really into it, but props for following the code. He started the incident and took his medicine. Props also to Johnson for sticking up for his teammate, and for holding back after the knock-down

Johnson did not knock out DiPietro. I am Boston Bruins fan so I have no prejudice. If he was knocked out he wouldn't know where he was etc..he def got hit with a hard shot!!! But there was no Knock Out...

Posted by playmkr278 on February 02, 2011 at 10:42 PM

@ b.t.wilson - Would agree with you under one condition. DiPietro needed to get the hell back in his crease. I'm so sick of goalies anyways because they never, and I'm talking about any of them even from the Pens who I root for, constantly dive and I still have never seen a diving call on a goalie. I'm sure it's been called somewhere but I'd like someone to point me to that scoresheet.

Posted by wooble on February 03, 2011 at 08:34 AM

4.4% of the voters are on crack. How do you win a fight without throwing a single punch and getting knocked down that quick?

Posted by fernben8 on February 03, 2011 at 07:20 AM

Now, that was priceless....! First of all, no fault to Cooke as he was playing the defenceman with the puck. All DiPietro as the instigator. Both goalies throw lefts and Johnson beats Di P. on the tag. Funny how they can see a puck comming at them at over 100 mph, but can't see a punch at 35 mph. LOL. Does the 'code' apply to the goalies as well? I figure with all their padding on, they should be exempt from it..lol. Tough team the Penguins have.. Godard, Engelland, Rupp and now Johnson too ! One for the books. Worth a 7.

Posted by sedinfan on February 03, 2011 at 12:21 AM

Now that was fun to watch, too bad Dipietro went down so fast. Hopefully doesn't end up on injured reserve for another extended stay. I friggin hate Cooke, but I think DiPietro created the skirmish and unfortunately paid dearly for it.

I was watching this game live. I was LAAAAAAAUUUUUGHING so hard watching that! Talk about humiliation! And then to add insult to injury, I just heard the DiPietro will be out 4-6 weeks due to FACIAL FRACTURES (and a swolen knee). I guess I shouldn't be surprised that he has a glass jaw, considering how he's been injured more than not since signing his HUGE contract years ago, a deal that looks like it could go down in history as one of the worst contracts in NHL history!

DiPietro initiated the contact with Cooke. When we get frustated we do stupid things as "DP" found out. Not much of a fight so to speak and to bad Johnson had to loose the shutout. Stupid move, DP played a nice game and unfortunately was on the loosing side. Ignore those that voted DRAW or for DP, there as frustrated as him. Sympathy for DP.....not hardly go and look at the Montoya/DP fight in 2007, he has the goalie down on the ice and he keeps pounding on him even when the refs were trying to pull him off. Paybacks are hell!

Posted by BrianTheAdsFan on February 03, 2011 at 10:24 AM

DP should be ashamed of himself. Smiling like an idiot right until Johnson hands him his lunch with a beauty of a left.

poor dipietro, that was embarrassing. a one punch knockdown by johnson, and fleury is the happiest little boy alive. dipietro's bell was rung in a bad way. that is going to be one sore ear. bad idea for someone so injury prone.

Posted by Burghthg on February 03, 2011 at 08:41 AM

Anyone voting for DiPietro or a draw should be kicked off this site, I'm all for different points of view, but outright stupidity, get a grip. Johnson owned him with 1 solid left that knocked the smile off of Ricky face!!!! Ricky started it but Brent FINISHED IT!!!!!

Posted by bobbyclark on February 17, 2011 at 09:51 PM

Funny that the only other fight DP had was Al Montoya and now he's taking DP place after his latest ass kicking. I am an Islander fan DP doesn't need goalie pads he needs armor. He gets injured more than......I dont' even know what to compare him to. Poor guy. Like a defective bionic man

Posted by Paul_from_NoVa on February 05, 2011 at 12:47 PM

Too bad it was all instigated by scumbag Matt Cooke, whose face a lot of people would like to see stove in. (Why hasn't that happened?) Yeah, DiPietro did trip him - otherwise he would has slashed him in retaliation for the hit - and Johnson came out to join the melee, but DiPietro looked as though it was all in good fun until HE had the side of his head stove in. Damn...

i wanna know who the 3% are that think Dipietro won the fight!!!....really???

Posted by drew2colleen on February 03, 2011 at 07:18 AM

Check out the smirk on DP's face before he ate that left. He never saw it coming or did he expect it!!

Fleury's face was priceless!

Posted by cbas2011 on February 02, 2011 at 10:20 PM

You got to feel for the $67 Million kid, but man he is made of glass. With the Islanders near the bottom of the standings, someone should have done the rest of the league a favour and crosschecked Cooke in the head there. KO win Johnson.

Posted by BuzzKD911 on February 02, 2011 at 10:37 PM

Dear Rick - you're a goalie... You have pads over all of your body except your head. Yeah, even the Death-Star had a weakness. Duck and cover brother! Johnsons gives up a shutout to stand up for Cooke of all people. Way to go!

Posted by letsgopens29 on February 02, 2011 at 10:14 PM

Boom. One punch. Johnny with the KO.

Posted by uglyphd on February 04, 2011 at 12:13 AM

If you can't run with the big dogs, stay on the porch Ricky Boy. Be thankful Johnson didn't use that right hand he had cocked. You may still be laying there.

Posted by BarDownBeauty on March 09, 2012 at 08:29 PM

One punch T.K.O by Johnson

Posted by slshbleed on February 02, 2011 at 11:50 PM

What just happened here? Somebody voted for DiPietro! It must be the drop down menu gone awry.

Posted by mohanrisen on February 03, 2011 at 01:30 PM

Nighty night for DiPietro. What a sad, pathetic way to drop gloves. Next time he needs to be prepared to fight...what was he thinking about?? A horrible goalie that was looking for a hug fest got a beating.

Posted by tyrone on February 02, 2011 at 11:31 PM

Who is the dumb muthafukcer who voted for DiPieKO'd? Get off this site before I KO you, you dumb Fukc! Nice elbow Johnson. You fight like Rypien you [email protected] fukcer. It's too bad COOKE didn't get a major career ending concussion.

Posted by Killah_punk on February 02, 2011 at 10:57 PM

Awesome! TKO win Johnson.

Posted by neiljc on February 03, 2011 at 02:41 PM

This is why we love Johnny in Pittsburgh. The way he goes about his business encompasses the entire Penguin mentality. Johnny is the ultimate teammate. He saw something he didn't like and not just because he was the only unoccupied player, but because he felt he should do something, he took care of business in a big way. DiPietro may have been laughing before the fight, but that quickly stopped. Nothing against Fleury, but if he did something, he may not have taken care of it quite this well. He did go after Orr once though....

Posted by mike hartman on February 03, 2011 at 02:27 PM

Johnson looked like he actualy felt bad for DP, as he showed a lot of class and restraint. Something Dp never has been accused of having. The hardest position in Sports just got harder.

Posted by web1350 on February 03, 2011 at 12:06 AM

DiPietro did a masterful job of stopping Johnsons left cross with his face.

Posted by MikeVee on February 02, 2011 at 09:59 PM

One-punch Johnnie

Posted by Chet the Jet on February 03, 2011 at 09:55 AM

I guess those who voted for DiPietro think he did an exceptional job blocking Johnny's left with his face... Johnson even abided by the "code", or he might have sent Ricky straight from the ice to the "physically-unable-to-perform" list...

Posted by AZfromNJ on February 02, 2011 at 10:15 PM

Guessing Rickie D has never dropped the gloves before....guessing he'll never drop them again. Gillies, Poptarts or Martin HAVE to run Johnson now!

Posted by WolfKeeper on February 02, 2011 at 10:34 PM

Ricky dropped em a long time ago in the minors, and danced with Smokey Reddick. It was an exhibition game, so it's not in the official stats, and he actually stayed up in that one. Tonight, not so much.

Posted by Somedude007 on February 03, 2011 at 11:14 AM

If you look closely at the replay, you can see tiny birds flying around DiPietro's head.

Posted by squish81 on February 02, 2011 at 10:02 PM

The old watch the right and BOOM-left cross and night night for DiPietro. Next time he should just left his mask on and turtled.

Posted by youthattack on February 02, 2011 at 10:04 PM

Here we go again, DiPietro trying to be Billy Smith and failing at it miserably.

Posted by nycbob on February 03, 2011 at 07:47 AM

ok, its offcially time for the isles to go to quebec and regain some pride. they are becoming a joke in league. the penguins will soon learn about getting their stars hammered when cindy retunrs he will be smashed by clean hit and be retired in 2 years. then shitsburg will realize the strategy of sucking for 10 yes to get draft picks was a bad one. as much as i hate dipietro that little french prick fleury needs a beating

Nice shot by Johnson. I just love watching goalie fights. Shame there aren't more of them.....

Posted by JaCort16 on February 02, 2011 at 11:13 PM

How does a single human being vote for Ricky D here? Maybe that punch hit Dipietro so hard it knocked out some of these dumb ass fans who voted for him. And another thing......Cooke didn't do anything there....as much as he plays on the border.....Ricky initiated it, Johnson got mad and KO we go down the ice.

Posted by nitehawk on February 04, 2011 at 04:04 PM

Remember to subtract 10% from each fighter's vote due to the homer vote. This puts DiPetro at -10%.

Posted by Willy WILL on February 03, 2011 at 10:39 AM

Who the hell voted for DiPietro? Moron got what he deserved... he's a joke of a goalie and now the laughing stock of the NHL.

A good representation of Rick DiPietro's career with the Isles.

Posted by igotgiddyup on February 03, 2011 at 06:12 PM

DiPietro probably thought he was traded to Dallas there. Dude was seeing stars. ehhhhhh? Clever right? Chachacha. But really, DiPietro got tagged. Bet he never makes that mistake again.

Posted by puckyou26 on February 03, 2011 at 02:49 AM

Dipietro deserved that beating....constantly diving trying to draw penalties and taking cheap shots at players...this goes back to last time these 2 teams played each other and Dipietro dove 3times against Cooke and drew 2penalties .....glad Johnson knocked him out for taking a cheap shot at Cooke at the end of tonight game.

Posted by ChicagoPensFan on February 02, 2011 at 10:39 PM

a rare goalie fight but man that was awesome you got to give Johnson props Brent Johnson with the win!

As clear-cut as it gets. "My name is Brent Johnson, I'd like to introduce you to my two friends. My fist and the ice."

Posted by GreatMurray on February 03, 2011 at 07:53 PM

DO NOT LET YOUR MOUTH OVER LOAD YOUR AZZ! 1 Punch TKO. Too bad the Islanders are such a bunch of sissies that the Goaltender thinks he need to be Darren McCarty

Posted by ryman1566 on February 03, 2011 at 08:28 AM

That was awesome!!! Big ups to Brent for sticking up for his teamates. Hopefully Dipietro didn't throw his hip out, causing him to miss 2 more years of that lifetime contract!

Posted by maryofdoom on February 03, 2011 at 03:10 PM

I was listening to the game on the radio while my husband was on the phone with his best friend. Heard the announcers getting excited and ran downstairs yelling "GOALIE FIGHT, GOALIE FIGHT!!" With the advent of the shoot-out to determine winners of tied games, the penalty shot has gotten less exciting. I submit to you that the most exciting play in hockey has now become the Goalie Fight.

Posted by Darkstone42 on February 03, 2011 at 01:20 PM

Johnson wrecked him. Holy balls.

DiPietro takes a shot at Cooke, answers the bell and takes his beating like a man, gotta give him credit for that. Don't F with the Pens

matt c is a cheap shot artist. when will he get this.turtles with a shield will not. dipi , nice challenge nice smile...boom boom out go the lights. do not like cooke or dipi.

Posted by advo on February 12, 2011 at 03:04 PM

dipietro and his contract will be a cancer on long island for years if i was the islanders owners dipietro would be cleaning washroom and seat when hes not playing to earn some of that money give me a 15 year contract and ill play 5 games a year hell ill play 10 we'll lose every game but thats no dif

Posted by fireparamed on February 12, 2011 at 10:43 PM

One and done. Nuff said. DiPietro showed up to a fistfight fight ready to wrestle. Ooops. It actually looked like Johnson was asking him what he was thinking after the fight and DiPietro gives him a shrug like "I don't know"

It's been a while since we've had a goalie fight in the NHL. Johnson landed the only shot in this fight and he made it count and dropped DiPietro.

As much of a piece of sh*t cooke is, the announcers right. Thats was all DP who started that. And Johnson sure finished it.

Droped like 3 period french.

Posted by BoogeyRocks on February 10, 2011 at 01:39 PM

What a joke. DiPietro started the whole thing with a stupid interference penalty on Cooke - and then took an ass whooping from Johnson. DePietro had a smile on his face as he took the big left to the mush - great camera work.

Posted by icebreaker2 on February 02, 2011 at 11:23 PM

While not great (one punch) it's been a long time since the goalies dropped 'em so I'm still calling this an 8 and without a doubt DiPietro started in with the interference on Cooke. Loved Fleury's reaction to the deal as Johnson was leaving the ice.

Posted by Big_Fat_Dan on February 03, 2011 at 03:03 AM

SUPERB!!! Love the goalie fights.

And now Dipietro is out for 4-6 weeks with facial fractures. That punch had more behind it than it first appeared.

Posted by JBox3 on February 03, 2011 at 06:06 PM

I was at this game tonight and it was amazing. DiPietro started the whole mess, got Cooke jumped on, and really payed the piper. When I saw him hit Cooke, I looked first to the ref. No call, but understandable due to the minuscule amount of time remaining. I saw the pile in the corner and immediately started screaming for Rick's head. Luckily, I happened to glance towards the Pens net, which much to my surprise, was empty. Needless to say, I was confused until I happened to notice Johnson lingering just in front of the red line. He caught DiPietro's eye, shook a glove, and gave him a little "Let's do this" nod. I never expected it to actually happen, though. Much to my surprise RD started skating towards him and the rest, as they say, is history. What an amazing night to be a hockey fan!

Posted by hhsbaseball19 on February 06, 2011 at 08:01 AM

my view of DiPietro changed twice during this video...first he was a jerk for going at cooke like that then he was a pansy for going down so quick. great fight
