Stafford, apparently angry with losing the fight, landed a pretty solid tea bag after hartnell fell
Dirty hit by Hartnell. Good for Staff stepping up. Stafford took a good shot. Hartnell lucky John Scott wasn't on the ice.
Hartnell with the win, but props to Stafford for taking him on.
Typical Hartnell fight. Only go if its a non-fighter or someone smaller, Throws a couple shots and falls down.
Hartnell eaisly but seeing Stafford stick up for a teammate is a plesant suprise
Hartnell lands the punches but loses his balance at the end, Stafford gets the take down but nothing of substance. Gotta give this one to Hartnell, with no second thoughts.
I'll give Stafford credit for taking on Hartnell here but he took a few early but tried to come back but the takedown at the end wasn't enough to overcome Hartnell's early edge.
Hartnell should have been called for boarding. He had the pper hand in the fight until he was somewhat off balance and got helped to the ice with a Stafford punch....
Not sure why they talked Hartnell up quite that much. They are about equal in fighting prowess if not equally sized. Hartnell takes the fight but it certainly wasn't dominance and the end I would have wagered on - Hartnell losing his balance - occurred like clockwork.
Welcome Back Sabrehatred jr...You must explain the Jr. ? Please tell me you did not spread your dysfunctual viral seed... Pleased to meet you, Hope you guess my name...Hartnell with a good right, gets the slight edge....Gonna be a fun year with sabrehatred back, Yeah, Yeah Yeah. !!!
Stafford stepped up for his teammate but he's not a fighter. Hartnell wins fairly easy but then again, he should.
hartnell gets the win
I think Lindy Ruff had a chat with this team in the last week about NOT being pansies. Unfortunately, the side effect is that Stafford now thinks he is in Rochester, Minnesota selling medical equipment. The Fro with the easy win.
Typical Hartnell--land a couple and fall down. Won't stand toe to toe.
Good to see Stafford step up, but he got beat.
Who ever thinks Hartnell went after Stafford is an idiot
Hartnell beats Stafford but this fight was a win for Buffalo. He stood in, took the one punch, dealt with the inevitable Hartnell flop and landed on top of him. Sabres more pumped than Flyers by this one. No monumental change in the game as both will later do what they do: Stafford will tally an assist and Hartnell will interfere with Miller...again.
Why does Hartnell jump the ice whenever he fights? Is it a question of balance or testosterone? I think we know the answer.
Drew Stafford in a fight? Hartnell's right should have launched his noggin into the first row of seats but he hung in there. Gotta say I'm anxious to see the first Sabres-Bruins game at Boston Garden. The Sabres look tough this year with Ott, Kaleta, Foligno and company but now they have John Scott as a nuclear deterrent.
Stafford gets props for stepping up, and not getting annihilated.
the bioche hartnell keeps his record of never fighting someone that actually fights occasionally. what a worm
Easy win for Hartnell. Stafford gets in trouble and pulls him down to avoid getting drilled.
Good to see team mates sticking up for each other
Hartnell with the win but as always could have picked a better dance partner.Props to Stafford for giving it a go when someone else on that team should have buried Hartnell earlier.Use the tough guys.......THAT IS WHY YOU GOT THEM !!!!!
Is there even a reason to talk about this fight. You have this goon in Hartnell fighting someone that hasn't been in a fight in over 3 years. Stafford goes up to Hartnell in defense of several of his players that Hartnell just cross-checked in the back. Hartnell is one of the dirtiest players in the league!!!
Stafford didn't win - true. But, for a guy that has't dropped gloves in 3 years, on a team that is known as being soft and who is trying to change that image, this fight was huge. Hartnell cheap shotted Pommers (I think) earlier in the game, and then he took a shot at Ennis (again, I think), and Stafford had enough. Good for him for stepping up. He might not be able to fight; he certainly can't go toe to toe with Hartnell, but that fact that he did was HUGE.
Definitely a win for Hartnell. Gotta appreciate and respect a team leader like Stafford for stepping up to make Hartnell answer for two questionable hits, but with all of the size and tough guys buffalo has this year you gotta wonder why somebody else didn't take this fight
Ok fight. Edge Scott Hartnell.
As soon as Hartnell takes a few.....he somehow falls down. LOL
Big props going to Stafford...this was his first fight in 3 years and he took on a bigger much more expierenced guy in Hartnell...Win Hartnell but huge fight showing Buffalo will no longer be pushed around
Although he went down, Hartnell landed more punches and definitely won the fight. But props to Stafford (a non-fighter) for taking on Hartnell (a fighter) in defense of his teammate.
Hartnell hands down... Stafford didn't land anything......
Did Stafford land any punches? Hartnell just lost his balance at the end.
Hartnell with the only solid punches of the bout.
Stafford learned that Enforcers don't flinch. Have to give'em credit for taking on Hartnell & defending his teammate
Way to stand up for your linemate Stafford.
Stafford gets my vote cause he took him down, and was the underdog... Hartnell had the clear upper-hand. Stafford Took it.
I thought Stafford did pretty good.. and honestly i think he deserves the win. Hartnell mind was thinking "yep finally landed some good shots, better go down before I get beat down by a non-fighter" Stafford Finished well. So he gets my vote.
Hartnell started on top but Stafford hung in there and tackled Hartnell.
Started out pretty even, then Hartnell kicked it up a notch and let loose. Stafford came back with 1 good hit and a takedown. Hartnell was clearly the better fighter of the two, but Stafford grabs the win here with his takedown.
Hartnell with the win -- surprised there was no boarding call on the hit
Is there a bigger puss in the NHL than Hartnell? Uh, no. Cheap hit from behind and then find some guy smaller than you who never fights to take on. And get rag-dolled in the end. Pathetic.
surprising to see stafford drop the gloves. Hartnell lands a good one. Other than that pretty weak showing all around.
No matter the ooutcome it ends the same way everything does with Hartnell, Hartnell down
Each landed one kudos to Stafford for sticking up for teammates. Hartnell ran two guys from behind he never would have had the guts to drop them vs Scott.
Staff-infection tries to steal Hartnell's soul, but quickly realizes he doesn't have one. Hartnell goes down, wins the fight and then takes a puck to the foot.
Peter Laviolette likes gum.
It"s always a shame when I see the name Hartnell on the fight log and then not see him get his richly deserved punch out.... I await him to not spin out or fall when the going gets tough and someone please knock the red off his puss....
Hartnell lands a few great shots, Stafford got the takedown but not much else.
Hey Stu you big dummy, those feints fooled no one. How did those two right hands taste..hahahahaha
Hartnell is a Broad; not a Broad Street Bully; just a gutless piece of Philly $hit
Hartnell throws 10 punches and lands one... Stafford takes him down.....Boring Draw
LOSER ALERT!!! THE SABRES ARE BACK HAHAHA!!! HARTNELL WHIPS ON PHEW STAFFORD HERE AND ANOTHER YEAR OF SABRE HUMILIATION BEGINS FOR THEIR FANS AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! BUFFALO GETS STEVE OTT AND NOW THE SABRES HAVE THE TWO BIGGEST CHEAP SHOT ARTISTS WITH PATRICE KRUMLETA. AND NHL MEATHEAD JOHN SCOTT "TISSUE" TO TRY TO PROTECT THE GUTLESS PUNKS. THE SABRES HAVE ABOUT AS MUCH GUTS AS LINDY RUFF HAS HAIR AHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!!! WE'RE TALKING THE MOJAVE DESERT OF SCALPS MAN AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
