Nice scrap vitale went psycho with the punches and takedown

Posted by nypd6476 on February 16, 2011 at 12:14 AM

Whoever gives the edge to any Penguins player in any fight is a fu****g retard. Islanders spanked this team on the scoreboard and in every single fight. Was I watching the same game. OMG people!

amac is amazing

Posted by smasham on February 12, 2011 at 08:32 AM

A little too late vitale, see you April 8th....

Posted by capsfloors on February 12, 2011 at 05:54 AM

tattooed very funny! also very true!

Posted by LincolnHawk on February 12, 2011 at 02:45 AM

And the Pens finally win a fight. Of course, from the looks of it, Vitale must be feather-fisted, since he didn't seem to hurt MacDonald any with all those punches.

Nice job NY Islanders .. With 8 tonight, you doubled your amount of goals this year in one game .. Still no playoffs in your future .. Win Vitale

Posted by mudman55 on February 15, 2011 at 11:10 AM

Nice of "Joe Vitale" to take a break from filming porn to play in a hockey game.

"anybody finishes this game with no penalty minutes has to buy the team dinner tomorrow night."

Posted by hckyfn80 on February 12, 2011 at 04:22 AM

This fight was the only win of the night for the Pens (and that's not saying much because it was a weak fight)! I'm completely unbiased and impartial here. I'm a 100% Dallas Stars fan and could care less about the Pens or the Isles. The Isles whipped the Pens in every way, shape, and form in this game. I've read over most of the comments for the fights and, basically, they consist of a bunch of bitter, crybaby Pens fans. Suck it up, Pittsburgh, you got it handed to you - big time!! Go Stars!

Posted by nycbob on February 12, 2011 at 10:33 AM

bush league from the AHL Islanders. I hate Pittsburg (luckily they are done this year). But this was purest Bush league. Every NHL team could call up a bunch of thugs. I hope the NHL bans both coaches for 20 games to send a message.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on February 11, 2011 at 10:57 PM

Vitale wanted this fight and got it. Im surprised no one rushed off the bench to help Vitale beat down MacDonald. Stay Classy Pittsburgh.

Posted by staceyb on February 11, 2011 at 11:28 PM

Vitale gave MacDonald's ear quite a spanking.

Posted by AZfromNJ on February 12, 2011 at 04:46 PM

Vitale wins this one.....some PP frustration coming out

Posted by art2428 on February 14, 2011 at 08:59 PM

well quite a hug fest but it goes to Vitale

Posted by joeman on February 13, 2011 at 08:41 PM

Did Uncle and Aunt MacDonald submit some votes for their nephew? Are you kidding me?

Posted by Behn Wilson on February 12, 2011 at 12:13 AM

Despite the tone set by the initial exchange of slashing, and crosschecking pleasantries... I'd try to beat the living crap out of you too, if you speared me like that.

Posted by lb1631 on February 12, 2011 at 02:19 PM

Vitale beating up McDonald. Nice spear by McDonald.

Posted by BooSanta on February 15, 2011 at 12:01 AM

2 shield fighters here looked clean compared to the other line braawls in this fiasco. Looked clear cut to be Vitale in this one.

Posted by b.t.wilson on February 11, 2011 at 11:54 PM

who's vitale now? regardless, its all him. punch punch here, whack whack there.

Posted by diamondback13 on February 11, 2011 at 11:59 PM

Way to go, "classy" Isles & Isles fans - cheap shots all around - somebody should've jumped your goalie and seen if any teammates showed up. April 8th can't come soon enough - be ready to see the Isles get beat down! BTW, enjoy WATCHING the playoffs...

Posted by bruins rule on February 12, 2011 at 07:33 AM

vitale gets the win in this fight.

Posted by leeban on February 12, 2011 at 04:29 PM

Win Vitale

Posted by Willy WILL on February 14, 2011 at 09:16 PM

Ouch... for pain and shame.

Posted by Caps44 on February 22, 2011 at 04:26 PM

A true fight, not the chaotic BS of earlier battles. While Vitale perhaps won, the end of the fight didn't look one-sided.

Posted by sandhu on February 11, 2011 at 11:54 PM

decent fight nothing special.

Posted by slshbleed on February 12, 2011 at 02:59 PM

They should have maybe called a cross check, but the officials lips were likely bleeding from going to the whistle, their arms were to tired to lift above their heads from signaling penalties, and they just wanted the game to be over.

Posted by DARCY T on February 13, 2011 at 08:32 AM

vin witale...gave it 6

Posted by jgutz20 on February 14, 2011 at 02:21 PM

Macdonald wanted nothing to do with this sore loser. Vitale getting his ice time because the allstar lineup is a little bruised and battered and he's simply a sore loser/cheapshot

Posted by yngblonde1 on February 12, 2011 at 01:59 AM

Vitale got a win for himself..Welcome to the NHL..

Posted by fade2black on February 12, 2011 at 12:54 AM

Nice over unders by Vitale BABY! Dippy dooooo dunkeroo! i hate myself for typing that...good scrap, if youre vitale. april 8th should be interesting...hockey players have long memories.

Posted by penguins own on February 12, 2011 at 11:24 PM

Im pretty sure ronald macdonald was the only person to vote for macdonald

Posted by GreatMurray on February 12, 2011 at 11:16 AM

Vitale kicked his butt...at least they both went at it the right way.

Posted by goodieogs on February 12, 2011 at 10:43 AM

Quick and easy win for Vitale.

Posted by sphinc on February 12, 2011 at 10:03 AM

The spear in the balls made Joe "Dick" Vitale go nuts! See Macdonalds stick bend on his iron balls?

Posted by ThomGregory on February 12, 2011 at 03:15 PM

Easy win for Vitale. MacDonald only got a weak "maybe" takedown.

Posted by Franchise on February 12, 2011 at 03:47 PM

Way to let MacDonald get is gloves off Vitale. I guess Vitale thought if an opponent takes sticks to the kidneys about 3 times and has his gloves on, he has a shot to win the fight.

Posted by dogace on February 11, 2011 at 11:19 PM

nice beat down..there could of ben 20 fighting majors this game.. thye just started tossing people..this beat the bruins and habs game

Posted by bruiseyoureye on February 11, 2011 at 10:46 PM

vitale just pounded the shiit out of macdonald right behind the net.

Posted by Dejotta on February 13, 2011 at 12:09 PM

i didnt'd think Vitale was that quick.

Posted by meknowfighting on February 12, 2011 at 10:23 AM

Vitale dominated MacDonald from the start. No contest.

Posted by jtcct on February 12, 2011 at 02:02 PM

TKP, Classy organization, you haven't a clue.

Posted by jymie on February 12, 2011 at 11:27 AM

Looks like there will be some suspension from Haleys involvements prior to this fight. This reminds me of the Flyers from the 80's.

Posted by scrapiron wins on February 12, 2011 at 07:31 AM

This looked like a AHL game...........Maybe the New York Islanders are a AHL team.

Posted by MikeVee on February 12, 2011 at 12:34 AM

All Vitale

Posted by tmarc on February 11, 2011 at 11:39 PM

win dickie-v. also tatooedpincushion must be a flyers fan. always funny to hear a flyers fan talk about "classy" organizations.

Posted by Cocajack on February 11, 2011 at 11:02 PM

What a beat down.......Every Islander deserved to get an ass beatin after all of the cheap shots from Gillies, Martin and Haley.....Can't wait for April next time they play.

Domination by Vitale. Slam bam jam baby.

Posted by PENGUINSCUP09 on February 11, 2011 at 11:22 PM

VITALE with the EASY WIN....... VITALE just took on Haley tactics Can't wait for the rematch.....

Posted by Bluetiedown44 on February 11, 2011 at 11:10 PM

Vitale got some revenge, McDonald gets the rocked in the head repeatedly. He shouldv'e gone in the locker room and thanked Haley for the beating. I like these teams getting rough, but there is a code.

Posted by fudickface on February 14, 2011 at 08:44 AM

This fight proves once again that the penguins are the best team in the league because they can play any type of game just like this one. And this game also proves that the islanders are cheap shot artists likie dick face and avery way to go dumbasses

Posted by jhurl on February 14, 2011 at 10:06 AM

even our minor league players kick butt then again it is the islanders none of them can fight seriously their goalie is out for 6-8 weeks then they lose pretty much every fight that night still our minors kick butt who the hell voted for for him his mother wait she wouldnt stoop that low so it was mcdonald who voted for himself

Posted by wargod2738 on February 12, 2011 at 11:32 AM

I love how every Penguins fan is screaming about how classless the Isles are. So.........What's cross checking a guy in the back twice then jumping him before he has time to drop his gloves called? Congrats buddy you beat Andrew MacDonald. Talk about going after non-fighters.

Posted by travist on February 12, 2011 at 05:53 PM

more Pitt BS...where's godard running out from the locker room to join in? hope he has some new clubs to break in on his extended suspension...

Posted by BritishRedWing on February 12, 2011 at 05:15 PM

Edge to Vitale, but even a Red Wing would have dropped the gloves after getting crosschecked three times. Penguins are still classless.

Posted by keebler61 on February 12, 2011 at 05:04 AM

Vitale vs an uninterested MacDonald. A little late to the party there, Joey. Got your win though.

Posted by chad420 on February 12, 2011 at 10:01 AM

allday Joey V...well the Bs had the fighting lead till last night..damn you Pens

Joe Vitale with the win in his NHL debut.

short, and painfull looking, win vitale

Posted by durka on February 12, 2011 at 08:50 PM

talbot getting stomped for the third time must not have resulted in fighting majors. vitale killed a non fighter

Posted by brokenhead on February 12, 2011 at 12:25 AM

Vitale with the nice ear massage on Macdonald, and the W.

Posted by squish81 on February 12, 2011 at 02:09 PM

Vitale beats this a-holes ass. The Islanders suck and it shows why. They are destined for last place again and again. Very little talent and a bunch of sucker punching pussies......they ought to be ashamed as Johnson didn't need Godard to beat Healey's sorry ass. Watch you homies from NY as we waltz into the playoffs while the hopeless Islanders stay home and golf. DiPietro needs to retire after Johnson used his face as a punching bag.

Posted by rudyk on February 12, 2011 at 02:14 AM

McDonald -- cheap shot artist like the rest of his useless team. Deserved the whopping he got

Posted by neiljc on February 12, 2011 at 12:17 AM

The only things more inexcusable than the senseless hunting the Islanders started was that neither Capuano or the officials would stop it. Truly awful and some more Penguins may be seriously hurt as a result. Vitale does very well, though. It's almost like the officials threw out Engelland just to allow the Isles to do this. Good thing Godard came off the bench. This is the only time it is justified. Hopefully Colie can look at this and use good judgement when handing out supplemental discipline. There was no need to retaliate like this for anything Johnson or Talbot did as their actions were squeaky clean. Snow and Capuano should be ashamed for assembling a band of goons just to do this, and the officials reprimanded for allowing it.
