Looked to me that Martin landed first and harder and takes the win

Posted by slysi on July 12, 2016 at 11:41 AM

Nothing much serious done to either fighter ...I see Gary BATTman now is sticking his nose into AHL fights trying to get them stopped ....HOCKEY as we knew it is almost gone ! Get out the croquet mallets and the pink shorts !!!

Posted by bigmike53 on July 05, 2016 at 07:33 PM

This was a close one and far from a beatdown. Martin slightly outlanded Kaleta. Kaleta did more damage with what he landed. Draw.

Posted by bobbynyi on February 05, 2012 at 07:04 AM

Hey muskodouschebag, barring a dirty hit, MArtin doesn't need to fight up 3-1. Also tell "tough" guy Kaleta if he wants to challenge someone have the testicular fortitude to TAKE OFF THE HELMET WITH THE VISOR ON IT. Too easy.

Posted by lb1631 on February 05, 2012 at 09:14 AM

I hate both of theses guys. Martin drops his gloves and starts firing punches. La eta fires back. Clear draw

Posted by Jellyczar on February 06, 2012 at 08:15 AM

Draw..... Kaleta looking to keep his job ... Sabres are horrible... highest payroll in the league and they are going to end up in the cellar... no heart

Posted by staceyb on February 05, 2012 at 07:21 AM

The other night Kaleta declined a fight invitation from Prust because of a hand injury. It must have cleared up in a couple of days! In this one I call it a draw as both combatants got in their fair share of shots, maybe Martin got more, but his face is going to be looking pretty bad today. Funny is when they were jostling for position and the referee St. Laurent turned around and they immediately straightened themselves up--like me and my twins sons.

Posted by cwschrad83 on February 05, 2012 at 11:45 AM

Kaleta is a dink,and I like Martin that said, that fight was a draw Martin had better volume but Kaleta landed the harder more damaging punches.

Posted by Jordybats99 on December 16, 2016 at 09:45 PM

BIG punches thrown. Draw

Posted by FightsOfHockey on February 06, 2012 at 07:01 PM

Oh boy draw

Posted by FightHaiku on February 06, 2012 at 12:44 AM

martin kaleta sounds like a good players name instead it's a draw

Posted by maasterxlt on March 05, 2012 at 02:16 PM

draw with martin geting black eye. martin is 2 inches taller 20lbs heavier kaleta stood toe to toe. dont hate kaleta because he is not on your team

Posted by keepermike1949 on March 08, 2013 at 10:55 AM

looked more like bloody knuckles than a fight. both threw plenty but they looked like all fist on fist

Posted by s8ntandrew on February 05, 2012 at 02:08 PM

For everyone chirping about Martin's right eye, take a good long look at Kaleta's left eye at about :50 seconds. You get another nice glimpse a few seconds later as they skate away and the camera follows Martin. Pattie's gonna' need that one cut open today.

Posted by travist on February 05, 2012 at 02:32 PM

wtf is muskokadangler saying?? whatta buffoon.

Posted by Big_Fat_Dan on February 07, 2012 at 02:12 AM

Kaleta got we he deserved, win Martin.

Posted by 29th_Candidate on February 04, 2012 at 10:22 PM

Edge Martin in a decent scrap. Must be a lot of Buffalo homers lurking, 'cause there's no way Kaleta took this one.

Posted by Cruncher on February 04, 2012 at 10:16 PM

Buffalo needs more than a P.K. donny to wake them up but I give him the win

Posted by GO16 on February 06, 2012 at 02:44 PM

How do you give Martin the win when he had the cut eye ???? Kaleta had nothing but maybe sore knuckles !!! Most of Martins' punches looked they they hit Kaleta's shoulder pads or his fist.

Posted by Frick72 on February 05, 2012 at 09:57 AM

Kaleta... Is was close though!

Posted by pinney29 on February 04, 2012 at 11:08 PM

Good Scrap. Win kaleta as Martin was bloodied at the end, but both threw well in this one.

Posted by MansGame on February 06, 2012 at 01:01 PM

Kaleta gets props for trying to spark his team after they went down 3-1 and more props for going after much bigger good scrapper in Martin. Sabres came back to win game and Martin had a busted up eye so, I gave Kaleta a close win

Posted by schwemm on February 05, 2012 at 01:56 PM

Agree that if you're Kaleta and you're going to fight, you're going to have to do something about the visor--shed it quicker maybe. Still, bloodied the other guy=win, but not a landslide.

Posted by Double Nickels on February 10, 2012 at 10:33 AM

Both guys tagged each other about the same, but Martin seemed to like it less. Kaleta for the win.

Posted by bubbabrad93 on February 04, 2012 at 11:02 PM

kaleta all the way though martin kinda hung in there

Posted by wayne8686 on February 05, 2012 at 02:21 AM

kaleta landed clearly more shot's by looking at a battered martin,, win kaleta

Posted by jnk07899 on February 05, 2012 at 01:13 PM

Watched this live... Kaleta 100% with the win. Look at Martin's face before the fight and then after. His right eye got rocked and Kaleta clearly landed more significant blows. That a boy Patty. Good win for Buffalo!

Posted by mcb798 on February 05, 2012 at 08:29 AM

kaleta wins

Posted by nait on February 05, 2012 at 02:58 PM

kaleta rule number one to hocky fights hell all fights. get the first one in and take the instigator or make an ass out of yourself and hand the win to martin

Posted by Behn Wilson on February 05, 2012 at 08:54 AM

Kind of surprised-impressed, that Kaleta, and his visor went looking for that the first place... but once the festivities started, Martin, gets the jump, successfully ties up his right, and proceeds to beat him to the punch on each exchange, despite coming away with a noticable right eye welt, by the end.

Posted by djstue on February 07, 2012 at 02:04 PM

Kaleta bit off more than he can chew.

Posted by boldbilly on February 06, 2012 at 05:31 PM

THE VERY BRAVE VISORED ONE GETS HIS POMPASS ASS KICKED! Once the visor and helmet were gone he went all huggy bear.........what a cowardly puke. WIN MARTIN

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on February 05, 2012 at 04:33 PM


Posted by b_eazzzy on February 05, 2012 at 05:10 PM

martin with the decision based on kaleta being the instigator, but still not taking care of business

Posted by mudman55 on February 06, 2012 at 07:47 AM

I give Kaleta credit, and this will be the only time ever. Martin's no slouch, obviously. Martin knew that Kaleta's not in his class, but it ended up being an entertaining, although brief, spat.

Posted by dontpokeTheBear on February 08, 2012 at 09:33 PM

close fight, Win MM, as usual PK never offers to take off the visor.

Posted by bigianpower on July 05, 2016 at 11:50 PM

Kaleta is a punching bag.....where is he now?

Posted by 5fourfighten on February 05, 2012 at 04:16 PM

Kaleta got a bit more then he wanted in Martin. Martin comes away with a souvenir and the close victory.

Posted by orr4president on February 05, 2012 at 04:46 PM

Martin wins narrowly whilst sporting one of the most horrific jerseys I've ever seen

Posted by abcde on February 09, 2012 at 04:19 AM

Wow, Kaleta didnt turtle.

Posted by fade2black on February 05, 2012 at 12:57 AM

Wasnt expecting the "jackhammer" action out of these two at all. Not a bad scrap, pretty even for the most part but I will give a sliiiiight edge to Martin...by a c*nt hair.

Posted by GreatMurray on February 05, 2012 at 09:45 AM

Waylon Jennings sings...be careful what you ask for... Kaleta asks for and receives a beating.

Posted by moramike on February 05, 2012 at 08:57 AM

Kaleta wanted it... he got it. Someone throw him an ice pack.

Posted by offsides on February 05, 2012 at 06:33 AM

muskokadangler. First of all you have a stupid moniker. Second of all, you probably need the word ¨moniker¨ explained to you, third you obviously know nothing about hockey, ballet or fighting. So my suggestion to you is to keep stuffing your face with cheetos and pepsi, you fat ,donut eating, macho wannabe couch potato. I bet you never even laced up a pair.

Posted by bluesrule08 on February 07, 2012 at 11:46 PM

if there is one thing I will always appreciate it's seeing patrick kaleta getting punched in the face.

Posted by bruins rule on February 05, 2012 at 02:29 PM

martin gets the win in this fight.

Posted by MJA on February 05, 2012 at 11:46 AM

Solid performance by Matt Martin....a flurry of rights with most hitting the mark. I even give him credit for trying to "walk" away but finally accommodated Kaleta by giving him the beating he was looking for.

Posted by hukturn on February 04, 2012 at 10:07 PM

Fast and furious.

Posted by ballin247 on February 04, 2012 at 10:40 PM

Good fight but Martin clearly the winner. No idea how Kaleta is winning the votes here.

Posted by xAdam Levine on February 04, 2012 at 10:24 PM

Matt definately landed more punches, but it was a great fight.

Posted by kinga101 on February 05, 2012 at 01:58 PM

An atypical fight for Kaleta who usually doesn't go toe to toe. This was a good one, actually similar to Grats/Reaves where the winner catches one and gets cut.

Posted by Bakes923 on February 07, 2012 at 12:00 AM

Entertaining fight!! Martin gets the slight edge,both landed some nice shots!!

Posted by ikendoit on February 05, 2012 at 05:04 PM

Next time Kaleta wants to fight Martin he should take his skirt off. Hit the gym and if the weights are too heavy in there, shovel the nine feet of snow you have in Buffalo.

Posted by Spazemunky on February 05, 2012 at 06:35 AM

Great showing for Martin. Kaleta is a dirty bum.

Posted by joedog on February 05, 2012 at 04:29 AM

Hands down Martin wins.Landed way more good shots.

Posted by SouthPaw017 on February 06, 2012 at 12:37 AM

Close bout, tough to call... I do like the lefts from Kaleta though..

Posted by chad420 on February 05, 2012 at 10:20 AM

Spirited draw

Posted by Snoka on February 05, 2012 at 10:17 AM

Kaleta gets the win despite being much smaller than Martin

Posted by hok1n on February 05, 2012 at 08:50 AM

oh n bobby was he suposed to take it off before the sucker punch or after. I think fighting with the helmit on is garbage but u got to let the guy know u r gonna fight before u try to sucker him

Posted by Bruce Smith on February 04, 2012 at 10:30 PM

Both landed some solid shots, but Martin's eye was 8 shades of purple skating off. Edge Kaleta.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on March 10, 2015 at 11:26 PM

This was a great fight and i would give it to Martin except the smashed eye that Kaleta gave him was far more damaging than anything Martin dished out.

Posted by Tsujimoto on February 05, 2012 at 03:45 PM

pretty even fight, gave the edge to Kaleta since Martin came away bleeding and Kaleta seemed to land the best punch

Posted by muskokadangler on February 04, 2012 at 10:39 PM

Martin Is Cheese ....Nothing more and nothing less....CHEESE !!! Grow some Stones buddy or maybe his Grapes havent even dropped cause that was ............Not Maning up, thats for sure!!!!! His actions at the start erased any respect for the good showing in the fight... unless be goes by the Balerina Code cause then he would get his Golden slippers!!

Posted by glovedropper08 on February 04, 2012 at 11:07 PM

really nice tilt, looked even, slight edge to pat, who i was glad to see drop the gloves, looked like he wasnt going to go for a second. Martin is a pretty decent scrapper. Edge: Kaleta

Posted by mike hartman on February 07, 2012 at 01:25 PM

pretty even fight in terms of punches landed. Kaleta's punches did more damage, and he sparked his team to a come from behind victory. Win for Kaleta and the Sabres.

Posted by DARCY T on February 06, 2012 at 10:14 AM

some old school throwing.it looks like martin didnt land as much as kaleta or at least kaleta's head wasnt popping back and forth like martin's and i like how kaleta's fourth-fifth left made martin stop throwing...win kaleta and 7
