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 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.
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
