ladies and gentlemen at 00:18 upshall delivered the only legit punch which landed square on Hamonic's chin which had him holding on and hugging for the rest of that match. Hamonic punched Upshalls dome while it was caught up in the jersery prior to that... all in all lame fight.
Staceyb....Upshall wasn't in the net, it was Kopecky. He was checked into Montoya and was sitting on the ground waiting for Montoya to get up when Hamonic smacked him on the back of the head. Upshall immediately came in and dropped em with Hamonic.
As a Panther fan whose team has been lacking that sort of thing for far too long...LOVED it!!!
And Upshall was given a misconduct for his fight strap, though, he said it just came undone.
A spur of the moment thing is always kind of cool, but these guys clearly forgot how to fight here. Giving it to Hammernic because Upstart kept his jersey unhooked thinking he'd get an advantage, when it not only backfired, but it got him the gate.
For the record, Hamonic got the extra 2 for roughing and Parenteau merely served the penalty. Some other Panther (not Upshall) got involved with Montoya after some incidental contact in front of the net and Montoya didn't get off of him because it was the third time a Panther crashed into him in a 10 minute time frame. Hamonic came over and gave the panther a jab to the back of the head which earned him the extra 2 minutes. Then Upshall came over, taking exception to the punch and the two dropped the gloves. Hamonic through and landed the only real "punches." The punches were indeed pretty pathetic as NEITHER of these guys are fighters. The fight was broken up because Upshall lost his jersey which was not tied down, which earned him the game misconduct.
1. Hamonic is a moron.
2. Upshall probably got the hook cuz the jersey wasn't tied down.
3. Upshall isn't a fighter.
4. Goalies need to start answering for their actions. Montoya started this whole thing.
