Edge ot Clowe, but Prust impresses we every time with the sie advantage he alwasy gives up.
Prust may be game, but he was smart enough just to try to hold on and survive against Clowe.
I gave it to Clowe jsut for more effort
Clowe with the win and control all fight....at the end they both looked like they had a sore wing
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...
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.
Neither connected good punches and nobody really clearly controlled the fight. Each had their ever slight moments ut no clear winner.
Hey staceyb the Rangers did make the playoffs last year.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
Clowe gets the win but good for Prust and Stacey B your have no clue!
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.
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?
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.
clowe gets the win in this fight.
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.
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.
Prust made it a match. 9 out of 10 times Clowe woud probably demolish him.
Average fight, no serious blows landed. Slight edge, Clowe
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.
Another Ranger beat down , love it!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
just a FYI staceyb, the Rangers did make the playoffs last season
Prust hung in there, but CLEARLY Clowe with the win.
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
it was more dancing than fighting
Clowe's size and strength allowed him to clearly dominate this one.
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.
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
clowe wins no problem
Clowe is a beast
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).
Clowe in this one
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.
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.
How about a pair of roughing minors in this one? Draw, unless I fell asleep before something exciting happened.
win Clowe...good job fighting out his weight class by Prust
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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
