WOW! This is a great fight, especially coming out of the KHL. All that time Grigoriev was inside his jersey taking blows, when he came out it was BOOM BOOM out go the lights for Makarov! And was Grigoriev taunting from the box? Showing them his widdle ouchie? Anyway: The fans loved it, I loved it, gimme more! G gets the W.
Makarov was dominating until they went down to the ice. I can see why Grigoriev would break code and sneak a heavy one in after eating all those punches but I'm not convinced his punch is what made Makarov so whoozy at the end. I'm wondering if he got kicked in the head by the skate of the referee who flew over him. It's hard to tell but I would love to see that fight from another angle.
