Edge ot Clowe, but Prust impresses we every time with the sie advantage he alwasy gives up.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on January 25, 2015 at 12:32 AM

Prust may be game, but he was smart enough just to try to hold on and survive against Clowe.

Posted by PigIron on October 31, 2011 at 08:41 PM

I gave it to Clowe jsut for more effort

Posted by muskokadangler on October 31, 2011 at 11:17 PM

Clowe with the win and control all fight....at the end they both looked like they had a sore wing

Posted by kkdowning on November 01, 2011 at 09:38 AM

Hats off to Prust who will fight anyone, Clowe was just to big and strong for Prust in this one though

A spinner-roonie draw...

Posted by smokenator on November 01, 2011 at 12:44 AM

Yawner. Not even one good shot either way. As big as Clowe is, he should be able to man-handle Prust. That would be an indication of how good Prust is or how lame Clowe is. Either way, it was a draw.

Posted by HMai802915 on November 01, 2011 at 09:00 AM

Neither connected good punches and nobody really clearly controlled the fight. Each had their ever slight moments ut no clear winner.

Posted by bc109 on November 01, 2011 at 09:47 AM

Hey staceyb the Rangers did make the playoffs last year.

Posted by DARCY T on November 01, 2011 at 07:36 AM

here is example why is clowe so valuable.he is not there to fight but yet regular fighter like prust is almost no threat to him...i dont see any punches landing...draw...5

Posted by Behn Wilson on November 01, 2011 at 02:58 AM

What Prust may lack in stature, and common sense, he more than makes up for, in courage, and willingness to go. Still, if the Rangers don't start thinking about acquiring an 'actual heavyweight' at some point in the near future.... ( as hard as he may try...Rupp is not an ''actual heavyweight'' ) ...it's just a matter of time, before someone, inevitably, destroys the ''ever-game'' Prust. Clowe with the win, but props to Prust for keeping it close, much less surviving.

Posted by dpappas1 on October 31, 2011 at 08:32 PM

Prust fights everybody despite his light heavyweight physique. You really have to admire the guy. The Rangers haven't had a true heavyweight who stayed more than a season or two since Colton Orr. Typical Rangers.

Posted by fernben8 on October 31, 2011 at 09:56 PM

Hard to judge this one... It was pretty even till Prust lost his helmet and he then went into defensive mode. Clowe tried to shake loose but not able to land effectively. If I go on points, it's a draw...but will give edge to Clowe for having more intensity. Rate it 4.

Posted by gongermuskegon on October 31, 2011 at 08:48 PM

Prust hangs on for his life but you have to his admire his willingness to take on anyone that is twice his size. Goliath and a 4

Posted by lb1631 on November 01, 2011 at 10:08 AM

Clowe gets the win but good for Prust and Stacey B your have no clue!

Posted by Spanky_Jazz on November 02, 2011 at 04:01 PM

Kind of a mismatch for the ever game Prust. Good showing by both guys, but Clowe does a pretty good job of overpowering Prust in this one.

Posted by staceyb on November 01, 2011 at 06:41 AM

I hadn't even sat down to watch the game and this fight took place at the 7-second mark. Kudos to Prust for taking on the big man but eventually he was overwhelmed by the size factor. After the game the analyst said the fight was the spark the Rangers needed to win and win they did. I agree that both Sam Rosen and Joe Micheletti never seem to find nothing wrong with the Rangers players--"That was an excellent play by Dubinsky" or "Callahan made an excellent pass." If that is so then why didn't the Rangers make the playoffs last year?

Posted by hal29 on November 01, 2011 at 09:59 PM

Not the best fight but Clowe is just to strong and overwhelming in a match of strength against Prust, but Prust is always game. Prust was lucky he didn't break his face on the dash.

Posted by bruins rule on November 01, 2011 at 07:32 AM

clowe gets the win in this fight.

Posted by kimo_coyote on November 01, 2011 at 02:44 PM

As much as i dislike Clowe, I have to give him the edge in this. He is smart, always picks his spots. One day he will get a "smaller" player and get the shit knocked out of him. Time will tell.

Posted by jhm8071 on November 01, 2011 at 08:04 AM

Staceyb, the Rangers made the playoffs last year as the 8 seed and played the Caps well. If Lundqvist got any help they could have beaten them. And their announcers could be worst. Ever listened to the Bruins announcers? The worst (and most homer) have to be the Sabres announcers though. You have to give Prust credit. He goes out there and gives it his all. Whether it is on the PK, forechecking, blocking shots, or fighting. He steps up and does what he needs to do.

Posted by tjmckenzie on November 01, 2011 at 07:29 PM

Prust made it a match. 9 out of 10 times Clowe woud probably demolish him.

Posted by SharkTank19 on January 28, 2013 at 04:31 AM

Average fight, no serious blows landed. Slight edge, Clowe

Posted by wineshark on November 01, 2011 at 01:52 AM

While Clowe won the fight, Prust won the trade. Clowe is an important player on the Sharks and getting him off the ice for 5 minutes only helps the Rangers.

Posted by tpr1960 on November 02, 2011 at 11:21 PM

Another Ranger beat down , love it!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by rocky 1 on November 02, 2011 at 01:07 AM

Clowe listed at 215 lbs. and 6"2 Prust at 6.0 ft and 195 lbs. so announcers not too well informed.Closer fight than i thought it would be as Clowe is a beast in the fighting department.Edge to him but Prust stayed in there.

Posted by mobilope on November 01, 2011 at 05:53 PM

just a FYI staceyb, the Rangers did make the playoffs last season

Posted by Buster11 on November 02, 2011 at 03:15 PM

Prust hung in there, but CLEARLY Clowe with the win.

Posted by TrueBlue26 on November 02, 2011 at 01:55 PM

Rangers need a resident heavyweight cause prust cant keep fighting guys who are 220 pounds and about...its a real shame boogaard past away RIP

Posted by Rbphoto1 on November 01, 2011 at 01:26 AM

it was more dancing than fighting

Posted by kinga101 on November 13, 2011 at 12:00 PM

Clowe's size and strength allowed him to clearly dominate this one.

Posted by jim_mckenzie33 on November 01, 2011 at 12:21 AM

Prusty was skilled enough to avoid some bad intentioned shots from Clowe, but the SIZE ADVANTAGE crud is just an excuse. Clowe dominated this tilt. Prusty just hung on for dear life.

Posted by ironbar44 on October 31, 2011 at 09:19 PM

CLOWE just too much for him .MICHELETTI gets tiresome with his constant PRUST is so game .he gives up size .PRUST is a tough guy he dont need excuses during every fight

Posted by FightsOfHockey on October 31, 2011 at 08:34 PM

clowe wins no problem

Posted by xXCWEEDXx on March 14, 2012 at 04:43 PM

Clowe is a beast

Posted by Double Nickels on November 07, 2011 at 05:45 AM

I'm really happy Prust didn't get hurt here. I like when Prust fights up a weight class, but unlike some of the other heavies, Prust cannot rely on getting Clowe off balance (so as to limit power).

Posted by ThrowdownSJ408 on October 31, 2011 at 09:57 PM

Clowe in this one

Posted by skynyrd77 on January 13, 2012 at 10:00 PM

Good thing Clowe is a so-so fighter since he can't play hockey for crap. Slight edge Clowe even though he is way bigger than Prust.

Posted by GreatMurray on November 02, 2011 at 07:13 AM

It was a draw but in the grand scheme of things Prust gets the win because a draw by him with an ox like CLowe is a win for the Rangers. Clowe has to decline and then go when his boys were losing. Neither he nor his team has anything to gain. If he wins he was supposed to, If he loses or draws the Rangers win and thats what happended.

Posted by tville23 on November 01, 2011 at 12:39 AM

How about a pair of roughing minors in this one? Draw, unless I fell asleep before something exciting happened.

Posted by blackngold on November 01, 2011 at 11:09 AM


Posted by chad420 on November 02, 2011 at 09:19 AM

win Clowe...good job fighting out his weight class by Prust

Posted by Clowes ABeast29 on October 31, 2011 at 08:28 PM

Close but edge to Clowe of control and had prust down and off balance a few times. Finally the sharks win a damn fight. And you have to love Brandon Prust!!!

Posted by samtheman on November 03, 2011 at 05:20 AM

Not many punches landed but Clowe manhandled Prust throughout the fight. Prust seemed to be hanging on waiting for the linesmen to save him at the end.

Posted by Redzilla on October 31, 2011 at 08:42 PM

Now, that is the way to start a game regardless of the outcome. Huge fan of Clowe and love Prust taking on anyone as he knows his role.

Posted by Rags4Life on October 31, 2011 at 11:11 PM

Unexpected snooze of a fight, considering the two combatants. 4 and a draw. As a Rangers fan, I must agree that Joe Micheletti's love affair with Brandon Prust every time he drops the gloves has become quite tiresome.

Posted by kbelanger33nyi on November 01, 2011 at 10:44 AM

Rnagers announcers-two of the biggest homers-hey joe micheletti-how many times you want to mention how prust is smaller than clowe?! you say it like he wasnt a willing combatant-you chooch
