king got the money shot.king with the slight edge in a very close fight.

Posted by brazos on February 13, 2011 at 09:48 AM

King was lucky to get a draw out of this. No domination by either. King is no where near the fearsome fighter he was a few years ago. He must still be suffering from an injury.

Posted by Big_Goon on February 17, 2011 at 11:19 AM

King with the upper hand until he gets his right hand stuck in his undershirt. The guy just can't catch a break this year... Scratched for several games in a row and then expected to hop on the ice and magically regain his form. Draw

Posted by omorales on February 12, 2011 at 03:29 PM

draw, Blake Ball's dead you idiot

Posted by fernben8 on February 12, 2011 at 09:20 PM

Decent fight... Had King early till he lost his helmet, Westgarth came back to earn the Draw. I feel DJ can shorten his punch a little, He winds up from way behind which gives his opponent time to see and feel it coming. Agreeing with the announcer..stamina/endurance could be better as well. Guys like Cam Janssen would drool over this...

King early, Westgarth late, 5 and a draw

Posted by Behn Wilson on February 13, 2011 at 08:12 PM

As you may remember, I was touting King as the second coming of Godard way back in his early days as a Blue. Pass the crow, please. Lack of playing time, or ''glass hand syndrome'', aside... I can't think of any other true heavyweight that has disappointed me more this season. That's why it was even more frustrating to see him start out (finally) like the ''King of old'' (under and over...switching hands)...only to get lid-popped, and revert back to his lame modern version. Coincidence, or not...his luck seemed to have changed when he was forced to abandon his patented ''19'' once arriving in Washington. Aside from it being ''The Number'', check out numerological irony on the back of Westgarth's jersey. What...?... Too obscure?

Good draw

Posted by cigaros on February 14, 2011 at 12:05 AM

Don't really see a victory here.

Posted by GreatMurray on February 13, 2011 at 07:45 AM

Draw...not much thrown...not much landed...quit early. Boring Heavys

Posted by Juha82 on February 13, 2011 at 02:37 AM

Very good show by both man. King early, Westy late. Westy was more fresh later but King hung in there later on the other hand, wasnt in serious trouble. DRAW in good bout.

Posted by Lucky33 on February 12, 2011 at 06:13 PM

Looked like Westgarth was going to get a beating. He was spending too much time working on his grip and taking blows in the meantime. Once he got set though he took over and it was King's turn to duck and cover. King was spent when Westy was just getting started. If King hadn't tied Westy up there at the end I think Westgarth would have gotten a solid win out of this, but that's just supposition. Overall a good scrap. I'll give it a draw as there was no real decisive finish. Could easily give the edge to Westy though.

Posted by sedinfan on February 13, 2011 at 12:54 AM

Looked like a two rounder, Kings wins the first round then Westgarth dominates the second round.

Posted by pepsigenerate on February 12, 2011 at 08:34 PM

King with the win here,westgarth only hit the back of king,s helmet to pulled it off,(its common),doesn,t mean that westgarth threw a good shot,"King all th way"

I thought overall King won but Westgarth may have won if it lasted longer

Posted by Detroit_Caps on February 12, 2011 at 11:31 PM

nice bout, King needs to get the rust out in a rare game he gets jersey, but nice bout regardless . . .

Posted by Vic_Rattlehead on February 12, 2011 at 03:26 PM

I love how they played Megadeth after the fight

Posted by m4rine77 on February 12, 2011 at 03:33 PM

those three or so punches that DJ landed after he switched to his left looked to be more punishing than the 6 or 7 that westgarth landed towards the end. i gave it a 7 and a draw. good scrap

Posted by pittbullman on February 13, 2011 at 10:51 PM

Come back to STL Kinger, we'll get you back in fighting shape

Posted by Ajaxechkin on February 14, 2011 at 10:56 PM

King lands 9-1 in first with 3 good shots. Westgarth tags King once good and then gets 5-6 shots in near end, none of which do much damage Scorecard=King with narrow victory!

Posted by glovedropper21 on February 12, 2011 at 07:20 PM

im giving the tilt to king not a big fan of westgarth for he is the one who ended my all time favorite fighters career for SCOTT "THE SHERIFF" PARKER

Posted by TommyGun29 on February 14, 2011 at 11:11 AM

King landed more but Westgarth closed the gap toward the end. Edge to the disc jockey.

Posted by Bluetiedown44 on February 12, 2011 at 10:13 PM

Two large skaters scrapping. King early, Westgarth late in this close bout. King had trouble with his elbow pad, Westgarth worked on his grip in the meantime and it pays off.

Posted by mpw on February 12, 2011 at 08:59 PM

westgarth wins.

Posted by The Peach on February 13, 2011 at 03:31 PM

First Nation was gassed and couldn't get his sleeve to cooperate. He's the better fighter but had a poor showing here. And Westgarth is big enough and good enough to seize the opportunity and gain a slight edge. I've seen better scraps.

Posted by Riomouse911 on February 13, 2011 at 08:33 PM

King had him early, then petered out. I thought it was going to be all King, but those 2 to the side of the head seemed to take the fight out of him. Draw

Posted by rangerfantwins on February 13, 2011 at 09:41 AM

i guess you could say a king beat a king as in los angeles king beat dj king hows that for observant lol

Posted by StanFischler Jr on February 12, 2011 at 04:26 PM

How does anyone call this a win for King. Westgarth came on strong and landed the better punches...bottom line.

Posted by staceyb on February 12, 2011 at 11:07 PM

Westy on points--King looked like me at the end after chugging up a long flight of stairs--totally gassed.

Westgarth is looking better as the season goes on. King, meanwhile, has lost a lot of fans this year, i think...

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

When I fought my way through the EHL we fought like men...no helmets! You all remember the movie, Slapshot? Well that was MY bio in the EHL. Even got a bit part in the movie. Last night's Isles-Pens game was more like the type of game we played. Cheap shots? The cheaper, the better...

Posted by OffGoyim on February 13, 2011 at 07:59 PM

"Knuckel Eater" is his own cheering section W "KE" G by a hair in this one

Posted by koolpunch on February 12, 2011 at 09:52 PM

A mirror image; trade rights, trade jersey tugs, trade rights, trade jersey jabs, trade rights....then Westgarth's stamina earned him a W with a stronger finish.

Posted by von_swine on February 12, 2011 at 04:18 PM

Westy stays in and gets the late points. DJ had it early but couldnt close the door. Westy gets another close decision.

Posted by youthattack on February 12, 2011 at 03:24 PM

"Blake Ball": what the hell are you talking about? what does any of that have to do with this fight? win westgarth.

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

Westgarth the "King" beats DJ King

Posted by b.t.wilson on February 12, 2011 at 10:05 PM

westgarth the win in a 6. this fight wasn't bad but i'm getting sick of heavyweight fights. they fight off the draw, they keep each other at arm's length, its all defense, i'm all for hockey fights, but i wouldn't give two green turds if these staged fights went the way of the beefalo. on a side note, i really like king, and feel sad for him and his fighting results right now.

Posted by bruins rule on February 12, 2011 at 02:48 PM

gave westgarth the edge in this fight.

Posted by AZfromNJ on February 13, 2011 at 04:58 PM

The 2013 Heavyweight champ may earn that title earlier than anticipated. He takes the late rounds and win against the overrated King.

Posted by kocur2694 on February 12, 2011 at 09:34 PM

Westgarth with the win as he outlasted King. The King who fought with Boogaard toe to toe has not shown up for quite some time.

Posted by SCOOP on February 15, 2011 at 06:02 PM

King isn't what he use to be, WESTY again with the win.

Posted by skater1 on February 13, 2011 at 04:12 PM

King takes the first part but Westgarth comes back strong and takes it by a close margin. King seemed to tire out towards the end.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on February 13, 2011 at 12:07 AM

So if King beats a King does he become King of Kings?? Shits blowing my mind man.....

Posted by msaw1125 on February 12, 2011 at 07:21 PM

What has happened to DJ King??? The Blues must have known something about this guy. At some point a year or two ago DJ was a semi-heavyweight up and comer, but he has look lost this year in Washington, not sure what his problem is.

Posted by DARCY T on February 13, 2011 at 10:23 AM

very very close fight.i was going to vote for draw but i call it edge westgarth after watch the second feed.but im absolutly fine also with draw...gave it 8

Posted by kevinator63 on February 13, 2011 at 11:07 AM

A clear win for Westgarth, mainly due to his stamna. King shot his wad and ran out of gas early, while Westie kept in it to win it. GO KINGS!!!

Posted by Hoofharted on February 13, 2011 at 01:04 PM

Close but I give it to Westgarth. King got in a couple early punches but the were more or less "love-taps" as they did not hurt Westgarth. Then Westy comes back swinging and dazes King. Good fight!

Posted by LicoriceBiscuit on February 13, 2011 at 05:03 PM

I normally only use this site for reference and only occasionally delve into these reviews, because there are so many retards allowed to post their bs. This fight is a perfect example; you have one guy giving the fight to King because his favorite fighter lost to Westgarth, and then you have another not talking about whom won but attempting to hijack this thread by giving everyone a glimpse of his bio. WTFC!! Great fight! King early he gasses Westgarth takes over for the win. Anything else is trolling or delusional homers.

Posted by brymaster1 on February 12, 2011 at 04:09 PM

king early westgarth late, but westgarth landed the best punch. draw/edge westy.

Posted by bruiseyoureye on February 12, 2011 at 06:11 PM

westgarth pummeled that turd from the washington crapitals...... washington crapitals suck the high hard one.

Posted by ThomGregory on February 13, 2011 at 01:11 PM

I'll definitely have to call this a draw. I would of called it a win until Westgarth took King's helmet off. King: Come back to the blues. We miss you!

Posted by jonnyems on February 13, 2011 at 07:33 PM

close draw. Was initially going with king but then changed to westgarth. Momentum changed halfway through.

Posted by Big_Fat_Dan on February 14, 2011 at 02:05 AM

King early, West later..........got tot call it a draw.

Posted by chad420 on February 14, 2011 at 10:54 AM

Jason Vorhees early...The Hanson Brother late...some Solid shots here..should be rated higher....spirited draw

Posted by dchockeyfan on February 12, 2011 at 07:26 PM

If King's hand doesn't get caught up in his under shirt, he would of droped Westgarth. Good scrap overall.

Posted by perezj on February 13, 2011 at 05:14 PM

Close scrap but I give it to King.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on March 02, 2015 at 01:00 AM

king started out decent but tired quickly and westgarth outlasted him for the sight win

Posted by tim daddy on February 13, 2011 at 01:05 PM

slight edge westgarth over the slightly overated king

Posted by PigIron on February 13, 2011 at 01:43 PM

King at first, but WG cameback nicley did enough for me to get the decision.

Posted by muskokadangler on February 12, 2011 at 09:44 PM

Get on the bike King and get some Cardio....Win Westy!!!!
