that was less of a fight and more of a mugging 2 boardings back to back from both teams and Flash gets jumped for his. Draw for being a thug.
You want to fight someone after a hit like that fine stick up for your teammates, but give him a chance to acknowledge the fight first otherwise your just a goon. Fleischmann didn't even have the chance to drop his gloves let alone see White coming.
Been awhile since I logged in and commented. Had to on this one. Not a fan of either team btw. The announcer's comments in this one are the REASON why dirty play happens so much in the NHL now. Fleischman launches himself (literally left his feet to do it !) into the back of the opposing player a few feet from the boards and the announcer thinks its a clean hit ????? Where do these tards come from ? Oh yeah...your commentating for the freakin Panthers in Florida. right. Fleischman got exactly what he deserved whether he was jumped or not. 20 years ago he wouldn't have tried to hit a guy like he did from behind because he would have gotten dummied by someone on the other team. The fact he wasn't expecting to get punched out this time and supposedly got "jumped" ?? Thats what happens when dirty hits go un-answered for so long. Why is the likes of a ***** like Fleischman even attempting stuff like that ? He wasn't expecting anyone to pummel him afterwards ! Next game between the Panthers and the Habs do ya think he'll try doing something like that again ? Porbably not !
What is the announcer talking about? Fleischmann did more than enough to earn that response, "That;s a good solid hit against Georges", What? "...that kind of eire is wrong", What? Fleishmann through the hit from behind he should face the consequences, I hate it when players Avery like that.
of Course it has to go to White. The Sucker punch always wins. would have been different if Fleischmann would have seen it coming. he never got his glove off, But on the other hand he should have know that it was going to come after that hit.
TO THE ANNOUNCERS: Unbelievable? Gutless? Fleischmann hits Gorges from behind. I'd like to see referees tighten up on checking from behind. Hits from behind within a meter from the boards are so dangerous and can easily result in broken cheek bones, orbitals, concussions, etc.
