Even bout throughout but if I'm the coach I'd rather have Clowe on the ice scoring goals than sitting in the box after fighting a sixth or seventh d-man like Engelland. Just checked the box score and both Engelland and Clowe scored goals while Clowe scored the SO winner. If I'm the coach I want them both to fight each other again. (-:
draw with so much more potential...given it a 5 cuz i know they can do better
nhl network cut it
Engelland started off good Clowe finished good. neither landed any powerfull punches.
Can't call a winner; Engelland was more aggressive, but Clowe a few in as well...
Good Tilt-a-whirl. Good energy w/no clear winner.
Clowe°s sheer strength, and aggression, against Engelland°s technique, and punching power. Interesting, back and forth, draw.
Draw!!! Clowe is one of my favorites, but according to most Clowe shouldn't even be in the same league as Engelland but just goes to show that Engelland is the next champ as everyone thinks he is. Just because he knocked out the concussed weak chinned Orr last year. I call draw and I even feel that Clowe was stronger than Engelland here. Not the better fighter but stronger. GreatMurray really....Reality check....knock knock!!
Both of these players can fight, but I have to give it here to Deryk Engelland landing good amount of punches on Clowe in the beginning.
Clowe cleary bigger stronger, but Engelland had his right free early and threw often. Hard to see what landed - I'm sure at least one of the rights Engelland throw tagged Clowe, and Clowe had a beauty of an uppercut, after which Engelland stopped throwing and Clowe rag dolled him a bit. Clear Draw.
Engelland is tough and has taken on some big opponents, but I don't think he beats Ryane Clowe here. Draw.
I love clowe. A true power foward can score+fight. This one was even
Engelland lost balance at first, but managed to get a obvious draw out of the tussle!
very interesting match-up...i like the way clowe blocked engelland's punches at the beginning and then landed some of his own.edge clowe and 7
Solid fight from a couple of stellar dudes. Draw, 7.
Draw, but it is Close. Over half of Engelland's punches didn't connect and none affected Clowe. Clowe connected with the same amount of punches. Engelland had control of the fight in the beginning, then Clowe took control at the end. A clear Draw.
Draw - is the right call here.
did Engelland kiss the zebras for jumping in and saving him from a beating ?
if Clowe could have just got that arm free he may have had a beat down. Close fight with not many punches landing
The Pens announcers suck, the worst homers in the league babbling on during the entire fight,Win for Clowe.
Jersey over head- Clowe couldve cause some ugly...
Clowe beats (barely) Engelland, scores a goal, then scores the game winning goal in the shootout. Clowe is a beast but the Sharks need a real enforcer.
clowe to big and to STRONG another wimp from pgh
i thought clowe won a tough mean spirited bout.clowe is to good a player to also be the top cop on the beat.but that is SJ MO.
Slight edge Clowe . You can see his strength as he pulled at Engelland.
giving a minimal decision to Clowe
Engelland wins against a bigger guy. But Engelland is more than a match for even the best fighters in the league. Clowe got whacked hard a couple of times and saved his butt by getting Engelland's sweater up.
These are two of my top five guys, so I love to see them go. However, as a rule, I do not give wins to a guy that ends the fight with his jersey over his head...both guys land about the same number of punches, with Clowe landing a huge uppercut that stuns Engelland moments after Engelland lands a strong straight right on Clowe. How people give this to Engelland on "clean punches" I just don't see, but then I am not a boxing judge. So, the jersey over the head ends it for me, as a rule.
Engelland early, nobody late. Edge Engelland.
Clowe sucked in this fight, his face on Engelland's fist. Clowe needs to learn how to play hockey.
I don't think a single shot landed
Engelland landed all the damage. Clowe was just tugging and pulling.
More muscle from Crowe. More knuck chucks from Engelland. I'm more partial to the chucks so i give the ever so slight edge to Engelland.
Way to go Engelland,you should of drop him like the Orr incident,
Deryk had his hands full with the over sized guy..He actually landed more clean punches so the win to Deryk..
Win Engelland, Clowe was more interested in holding on, never wanting to open up. At the point he felt Engelland getting loose he pulled the jeresy up.
Tight fight.... but edge to Engelland becasue Clowe did the jersey pullover knowing that would bring in the linesmen and end the fight...
deryk gets the win in this fight.
DE with the win but nice showing by Clowe. Did everyone shave before their games this night?
Clowe saved himself ass beating, grab those jersey boys and pull it over his head when he is kicking your ass. Clowe needs to play hockey and not try and be the policeman for the Sharks.
Good one boys... Both threw equal amount of punches back and forth but will give edge to Engelland. He landed the cleaner punches, like when he bounced back up to his feet. Gotta love the way Engelland throws his punches...simialar to Goddard, very Linear. Gave it a 6.
Close fight but Engelland landed better punches
Hard to pick one in this bout. Both gave it a real go!
Licking my chops when I saw this one posted. Engelland gets the win and I gave it a 7. Engelland reminds me of Kocur with those nasty rights. Clowe is strong like bull but could not do damage even though he manhandled Engelland for most of the fight. Like Kocur, so many opponents start off with good (bad;) intentions when fighting DE only to get stopped in their tracks by the sheer nastiest of that vicious right hand... Btw -I hate both teams/players equally
Win for Engelland. He threw several more punches, landing most if not all of them. The people giving Clowe the edge probably because of him pulling Engellands jersey up. That folks doesnt constitute a win, its the quality of punches that connect and Engelland definitely wins that battle.
Engelland with the win-Clowe with the huge shiner.
Each man went to their knees and but got back on their skates faster than a speeding linesman. Love that in a fighter (all punching aside) because seriously... how frustrating is a pre-mature topple?? Sweater over the face made me *facepalm* as I envisioned a frontal fight-strap.
Close Bout but edge to Engelland. Only because he seemed to land more and I really didn't see Clowe land much. People outside of Pittsburgh have to realize that Engelland is only 200 lbs. He's not a true heavyweight but he takes them on. If he was 240 he'd wipe out a lot of guys!
Engelland is a technician when it comes to fighting, he isn't the biggest or strrongest guy but he knows how to fight. He won this one, Clowe tried to use his brute force strength but I give the edge to Engelland.
Close, but the guy from England wins.
Engelland slight edge..Crowes a damn good scrapper but seems to try to go to the pull down if he gets in trouble which I saw in this fight..anyway engelland win for the heavy rights!
Narrow Narrow edge to Engelland. San Jose needs Staubitz back.
Good scrap, draw all the way. 20 something teams would line up for Ryan Clowe. He does a little bit of everything. Engelland hits his target often in fights and sometimes this gives him the upper hand early and he is quick!
LOVE THESE TWO GUYS, DRAW
...decent,...not a lot landing -- even.
I don't think anything significant landed in this scrap. I have to go draw.
Well fought draw -- Clowe's strength against Engelland's tenacity and technique. Would have scored the fight higher if I did not have to listen to those 2 doofs from Pittsburgh announce it.
Edge to Clowe
What a great scrap both fighting to win! Both throwing with bad intentions. That being said, Engelland early with 2-3 rights. But Clowe blocked a few this is a bad feed, He did a few "Rypien" MMA hand to ear blocks. The other rights when Clowe is off balance look like they land but they miss. They both had each other down at least once. But Clowe Takes the middle part with the Infamouse "Short inside ALI" uppercut. (momentum changer) Then feeds him 2 straight rights. Then Deryk goes into defensive mode after throwing one more right and clowe gets the left up in his face, off balance, and then the jersey over the head. Win Clowe. I can see draw. But i gotta give it to my boy for hanging in there taking a few shots and coming back to get the edge. Mike vee clowe had the shiner before the game. Probably from the prust fight.
Good scrap between (arguably) the two best scrappers in the league. Engelland with the slight edge in this one.
Sorry Ryane, I'd give slight edge to Engelland.
Edge to Engelland, he landed almost all of the clean punches.
No way thats a draw Engelland is a fighter...Clowe does seem sronger tho but on punches I most certainly have to give er to Deryk
win New England
Good fight. Damn Clowe is strong. Edge Engel.
it hurts me to vote for engelland by a very slight edge... but this was a good scrap nonetheless... engelland caught clowe with a few of those rights and gave him a little shiner, but clowe came back with a nice uppercut... clowe with back to back games off the draw fights... sharks needs a real enforcer... where u at frazer mclaren? brandon mashinter?
Engy landed a nice shot to that potato face of Clowe's, too bad there won't be a rematch ...
Good fight, very close. I think Engelland landed a few more blows
