Downie is still the league's biggest p#$%@
Gotta go with the Draw here
Interesting battle. Also interesting how Henricks was blamed for going after their goalie: seemed during the game that he was pushed by a TB player.
a wild, little awkward affair. though the energy was a-poppin'. i was hoping the bolt would get uglied by mad men, but i have to go with a draw and a 6. never seen so much simultaneous throwing and ducking before. ever see that seinfeld episode where george and jerry start swinging at each other and covering their mugs sitting at the table in monk's? 'not the face, not the face!' thats the first thing i thought of. all told, a good scrap.
A spirited one... Fair(ish) on the technicals but good intensity. Couldn't help notice their momentary back and forth with their rights, their timing was a wee bit off with their counter punches. Guys like Deryk Engelland would have been licking his chops if any of his opponent did this. There is a science to the counter punch but not many know how to use it... Gave it a Draw and a generous 7.
Very spirited bout. Both had moments. Draw.
Exchange of rights, Hendricks seemed to have the fight in hand early, but the resurgent Downie clears off his own helmet, then Hendricks and gets back into the scrap. It is a see-saw fight with rights and uppercuts by each man. Draw, perhaps slight edge to Downie but too close for a clear win.
Great fight. It's a Draw - People who voted for Downie - Hendricks landed more punches. People who voted for Hendricks - Downie landed almost exactly as many. I agree with Draw but disagree with the rating, this is a great fight
good fight, draw!
Downie showed some spunk there, though the hearing aid was knocked out of his ear. The Caps leave with a nice road W but it was great to see TB pack the arena with a sellout crowd. Hockey is back on terra firma in Tampa Bay.
Close fight but the edge goes to Downie for landing the better punches.
Downie with the win
High energy scrap between two of the league's ''less-likables''. Slight edge to Downie, as he seemed to put on the jets after that, highly-uncharacteristic, self-inflicted, lid toss LOL @ BTWilson...''It's gold Jerry...Gold''.
round 2 this season.it wasnt as much embarassing fight for hendricks as the round 1 but downie still gets the edge in round 2...gave it 6
Downie is a gamer,wish philly still had him.win downie.
downie gets the win in this fight.
Well spirited bout. Downie made Hendicks head shake a few times. Win Downie
I have to give Downie credit. He landed more shots, landed with both hands and muscled his way out of trouble a few times. Could do without the cheap uppercuts at the end, but a W; Downie.
Downie scores the win here; this was Downie going after Hendricks for getting tangled up with Rolo in the crease....good fight though!
very string show by Downie!! Hes NARROW WINNEr.
Good Fight! Good Job by Downie. Gets rid of Both Bonnets and Throws punches. Hendrick got beat for his lame "I accidentally fell on the goalie" act.
Hendricks always gets Downie's goat by landing that first uppercut hahaha
Good fight, second between them this year I believe. Less talking from both of them afterwards compared to the first fight, looks like they were both tired and maybe this fight will mellow them out, but more likely they know how evenly they are matched and will keep brawling every match eheh.
Steve Downie quickly beating out Sean Avery as NHL's most hated player.
Looked like Hendricks had the fight early on with that lovely uppercut, but Downie came back pretty strong!
good scrape - both did what they had to do.
edge Downey Drier Sheets
Close fight, edge to Downie
I hate when Downie wins a fight
Downie giving up 25 lbs but never backs down - from anyone! Don't know how anybody can deny he took over after knocking the lid off Hendricks. Clearly he threw & LANDED more shots. The first 20 seconds were punches to the back of the helmet by both....a non-factor. Wish we had a real fighter to payback Hendricks for swan diving on top of Roli. Downie is always game but he is more valuable on the ice.
