Great scrap with another mutual lid toss (applause) Both guys swing for the fences in a wild spinorama with fierce intensity Vitale eventually pulls it out in the end after a series of gutsy exchanges

Posted by staceyb on February 25, 2013 at 05:23 AM

Vitale from start to finish.

Posted by shawn46 on February 25, 2013 at 09:40 AM

Did Hall talk about Joe's old lady? Man that was a ball of hate unleashed on Hall.

Posted by Boone2511 on February 24, 2013 at 09:00 PM

Pretty close one vitale leans away from the reach and gets the better shots and is the one standing when the refs stepped in

Posted by wmellott on April 15, 2013 at 10:16 AM

Seriously? Whomever voted for Hall or Draw needs to be banned from voting, because they are complete 'homers' who vote like children who can't accept the truth.

Posted by cossack757 on February 25, 2013 at 02:15 PM

What is Vitale so pissed about? Man, Joe was on a mission. I'm thinking he would have pummeled the big guy if the refs had not stepped in while Vitale and Hall were on the ice. Vitale win.

Posted by saapgh on February 24, 2013 at 09:19 PM

Vitale landed 1 or 2 early (no replay to get a better look) and then rag-dolls Hall at the end, so I'm giving Vitale the edge.

Posted by bammer24 on February 24, 2013 at 11:36 PM

Edge to Vitale.Not because of size most of you guys make it like Hall is huge.Hall isn`t even a fighter he just stood up for himself.Vitale won because he got in the better punches.

Posted by Mounty in NC on February 25, 2013 at 04:37 PM

There was no stopping Vitale in this one

Posted by DigitalGypsy66 on February 25, 2013 at 11:04 AM

Vitale landed more punches than Hall and looked angry whilst doing so.

Posted by fernben8 on February 25, 2013 at 01:32 PM

More often than none, you'll have a better hit percentage if you look and aim at your target... This is what Hall failed to do. He was too busy looking at Joe's shoe size. Still a good fight though.

Posted by GreatMurray on February 25, 2013 at 07:43 AM

Hall was never in this. Tampa should try a little defense. Their goalie sucked but their "D" was worse. Tampa doesn't have anyone that can fill this bill. Crombeen is an old hack and the rest can't fight. Malone is injured AGAIN! So they end up with LeCavalier fighting...not good! Yzerman went to the Holland school of enforcers...get the cheap old guys that can't win and scare no one!

Posted by medicdrummer on February 25, 2013 at 05:29 AM

Was this fight in fast forward? Nice to see both guys take their visors off. Vitale seemed to land the better out of the two.

No real winner, I am going draw

Posted by partybarber on February 26, 2013 at 07:18 AM

Vitale for the win, still hate the Penguins.

Posted by saunders1507 on February 24, 2013 at 10:44 PM

I don't think much landed for either man. Vitale threw more and got the takedown against the larger Hall. Edge Vitale.

Posted by chad420 on February 25, 2013 at 12:43 PM

Win JV..pretty good bout

Posted by hellawaits77 on February 25, 2013 at 09:18 AM

Spritied bout, Vitale wins this one clearly. Good connections by both, but more by Vitale.

Posted by FrankieChestnut on February 25, 2013 at 09:30 PM

Little anger management issues, Joe?

Posted by DARCY T on February 26, 2013 at 03:19 PM

good effort by both but vitale was looking like the bigger guy of them 2...win vitale...and 7

Posted by hughtrain on February 24, 2013 at 11:48 PM

Vitale with a clear win here....

Posted by ETR on February 26, 2013 at 09:37 AM

At the end it looked like Rag Doll Hall....

Posted by bigpucks on February 25, 2013 at 04:32 PM

Fun middleweight bout

Posted by RV_camper on February 25, 2013 at 10:29 AM

Close fight, but rather entertaining....Vitale is strong on his skates the way he whips Hall around like a rag doll to the ground. Announcers comments on Hall's size but he's clearly out muscled by a smaller guy....Vitale's had some pent up whoop-a$$ he cut loose

Posted by jcholmes on February 25, 2013 at 08:09 AM

Vitale beat Hall like a redheaded stepchild. Er, wait, he is a redheaded stephchild!

Posted by AC1026 on February 25, 2013 at 05:24 PM

Better fight then most I have seen...(See Simmonds last fight) These guys should fight more. Vitale was a little angry...ya think?

Posted by JL73 on February 25, 2013 at 02:56 PM

Helmets off no punches after take down; it still exists. We have not seen it often lately

Posted by JarHeadGabe on February 25, 2013 at 08:01 PM

Win to Vitale, better shots landed and an awesome takedown.

Posted by jholdy83 on March 01, 2013 at 01:56 PM

Win Vitale. I love watching this guy, he works hard and plays physical every single game, and certainly doesn't shy away from a fight. Good strength shown by Vitale, controlling the fight and the larger man, landed a few good shots as well.

Posted by sunking1 on February 25, 2013 at 09:00 PM

what is adam hall doing dropping the gloves. hello we have BJ crombreen. i never expected to see him drop the gloves. win goes to Joe Vitale. even though i am a huge Lightning fan. Always loved hockey fights but from a guy like Adam Hall then i don't care. Its like telling Tyler Myers or Jordan Eberle to drop the gloves. Oh lets fight and get beat. haha Enforcers our pepole who all taller and our known for that like Geroge Parros or Engo on the pens. Adam Hall ive seen 2 teams fight Vitale or Engo. A bunch. Grinders don't fight

Posted by Redrover37 on February 24, 2013 at 09:33 PM

Clear win on a couple levels. First off I love to see guys who aren't regularly squaring off do so; 2 - I love to see a guy playing clean and physical stand up for himself when it is brought to him. So plus one for Vitale already, Hall had height and weight adv. and Vitale hit him fast and often, while other than the first upper out landed by Vitale, nothing landed by either really hurt either participant. They should have saved this for pd 2. Vitale gets win.

Posted by rocky 1 on February 25, 2013 at 07:23 PM

Looks like a straight up draw!Homers will be homers and i can,t change there biased voting!

Posted by SouthPaw017 on February 25, 2013 at 05:24 AM

Very close fight, love the arial view of the lid toss.... Although Vitale looked more angry, I'm going draw....

Posted by Toughguy83 on February 25, 2013 at 01:16 AM


Posted by kkdowning on February 24, 2013 at 10:30 PM

Vitale landed more and better shots

Posted by mikecan on February 25, 2013 at 06:08 PM

Nice tilt, both looked to throw the KO blow.

Posted by JBox03 on February 25, 2013 at 06:02 PM

I am a huge Vitale fan, but fighting with your mouth wide open whilst rage yelling is never a good idea... Win JV I'll give it a 6.

Posted by idiotstupid2002 on February 25, 2013 at 07:53 AM

hall wins. pierre mcguire is an idiot. vitale never landed a single punch

Posted by mcb798 on February 24, 2013 at 09:23 PM

BIG JOE VITALE wins here and always wins all of his fights.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on February 25, 2013 at 03:28 AM

Hall threw a bunch but never connected. Vitale on the other hand connected with a few dandies.
