I was at the game last night and also at the game at Anaheim a couple weeks ago. Nolan has now handled both defensemen in that pairing as he beat down big Allen in the game in Anaheim. I can tell you that Souray was hurt by one of those lefts. Caught Souray right on the bridge of the nose and was bloodied and swollen the rest of the game. Being a Kings fan, I am pretty fired up on Nolan's constantly improving fight game. The Kings finally looked like last year's team in the 3rd period where they pounded the Ducks merciessly in their own zone and cycled the crap out of them. I agree that Souray has lost a step in the fight game, but he is still not a guy too many will mess with. It was really that one left that determined that fight. They will almost certainly go again next time out. The punch while they were down was uncalled for, but not a big deal as hepurposely put nothing behind it. I think it was more of a "Im still here and we will do this again" statement.
tired of wanna be tough guys fighting with shields on. how can you rate a fight when 1 player starts with a big disadvantage. nolan swings away while souray has to worry about getting nolans helmet off or swinging at a sheild
