Hey...pretty good first NHL fight for Olesky, Honorary lid toss, solid connection with first punch thrown and respect of the code when your opponent is down, Good job kid...

Posted by GreatMurray on March 13, 2013 at 07:28 AM

New tough guy for Washington. Now if they can get Ovie to play more than 1 shift a game...

good to see them remove the helmets, like to see more of that

Posted by Oil Can Henry on March 13, 2013 at 10:21 AM

....after landing the first one, Oleksy wastes no-time and quickly finishes his man,...

One sided fight. bammer24... If you knew anything at all, you would know that the little Country north of you is bigger than the little Country south of us! By the way, have you heard of spell check you MORON.

Olesky resembling "Hitler Youth" takes out Bowman...Never heard of either of these guys but Olesky pummeled him. Almost TKO..

Not a fair fight. Oleksy gets the win.

Posted by endor on March 13, 2013 at 10:03 PM

Oleksy with the beat down.....

Posted by nyandy41 on March 14, 2013 at 12:01 AM

Like the lid toss wanna see oleksy go with a proven guy

Posted by ProjektTHOR on March 12, 2013 at 09:28 PM

Oleksy obliterated Bowman. I'm not even sure why Bowman took the bait on that. Not that it mattered to the game as a whole, but a good show for Oleksy's first NHL fight.

Posted by DARCY T on March 14, 2013 at 09:48 AM

1st nhl fight for both.oleksy fights quite a lot down in the ahl though.his first right that connected stunned bowman and bowman stopped throwing after oleksy

Appreciate guys, taking the hats off for a dance when they have visors, should be a new rule. Gentleman's game, lets keep it that way and get rid of the posers.

Posted by billy jack on March 13, 2013 at 12:22 AM

Bowman looked good with his opening stance,that he had down and actually looked likes been sparring with joekinen then 2 seconds in reality set in and gets tuned like a hillbilly's maybe he shouldnt be sparring with joekinen and maybe talk to westgarth.

Posted by Spanky_Jazz on March 13, 2013 at 02:58 AM

No question, all Oleksy here.

Posted by Caps44 on April 01, 2013 at 04:58 AM

strong right punch & Bowman essentially quits. Oleksy holds back -- fights fair. Kudos to both: neither are like the Flyer pucks (vorocek, Rinaldo, etc)

Posted by bammer24 on March 12, 2013 at 11:44 PM

"And Bowman wants No Part of Him"-Great call by the announcer yes he said"oh I better fall to the ground and hide he won`t find me here " you Moron.Like he had a choice.It looke like a Bruin beaten on a Canadien or a Canuck.It was almost a Dziurzynski or Pacioretty which would have been great .But luckily Bowman wasn`t representing that little country North of the Border or it might have been lights out. I hope NotSoBoldBilly and CustomBrokeBack and gta1954 are having a nice three way in a tent tonight sharing there yule logs together.Remember Billy has to get up early and change his pants.Good nite.

Oleksy is the most exciting thing for the Caps this year!

Posted by gocaps11 on March 23, 2013 at 04:47 PM

Watch out for Oleksy..he's a small bastard..but he is the new enforcer for the Caps!

Posted by SteveO61 on April 05, 2013 at 05:48 AM

Great first fight for Oleksy. Looking forward to seeing more of him. Props to both for lid toss and clean fight by Oleksy when Bowman went down.

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on March 12, 2013 at 11:51 PM

i like this Steveo!

Posted by jshubert on March 13, 2013 at 01:49 PM

Great first NHL fight for Oleksy.

Posted by capsfan33 on March 13, 2013 at 09:49 AM

Oleksy lookn good n first nhl. Hes.been a solid ahl fightr c him get his.chance.. Too bad volpatti doesnt scrapp like that... But all n all the only thng to cheer ab during this game...,

Posted by DanielleinDC on March 15, 2013 at 02:14 PM

Definitely the only thing Caps fans had to cheer about that night. Actually, come to think about it, Oleksy is the only thing the Caps had to cheer about for that three-game slide. He's not big, but he is tough, and he can lay a hit on you. I was able to watch him when he played in Hershey, and he is not reluctant to drop the gloves when necessary. While Bowman got a few licks in first, once Oleksy took control of the fight, it was all over.

Posted by FHgrad99 on March 15, 2013 at 02:04 AM

This was a butt-kicking. Oleksy's first NFL fight is a clear win for him.

Posted by Tex55 on March 13, 2013 at 05:37 AM

Great TKO for Oleksy, which gave Caps fans the only thing they had to cheer about the entire game.

Posted by TheKidBigKip on March 12, 2013 at 11:59 PM

Olesky handed it to him. Bowman had no idea what he was getting into.

Posted by MACMAN214 on March 24, 2013 at 07:08 PM

Oleksy with the beat down

Posted by Behn Wilson on March 13, 2013 at 07:52 PM

I was kind of hoping to see DJ King again but if he keeps that up... this guy will do Mutual lid toss...we salute you

Posted by Nystrom_23 on March 13, 2013 at 04:47 PM

Firstly, I would like to smack around Mr. and Mrs. Bowman for naming their son Drayson. Secondly, many more fights like this one and Drayson's face-on will look uglier than it already is. Olesky with the beat-down.

Posted by MeatPlow on March 12, 2013 at 11:16 PM

Bowman is not a fighter and cant fight. at least he dropped the lid.

Posted by SJSharkie82 on March 22, 2013 at 09:08 PM

Not even close .... Bowman got a love tap on Oleksy before Oleksy opened up a can on him.

Posted by tystik024 on March 13, 2013 at 12:13 AM

Bammer24, it sounds like you are a little upset from getting whopped by a guy from "that little country north of the border". If like to see you actually talk about the fight instead of running your mouth about stuff you obviously have no clue about. As for the fight Oleksy with the win, good job kid!!

Posted by SouthPaw017 on March 13, 2013 at 08:09 AM

Bowman with nowhere to hide... Oleksy tee's off... Looking to see more from this kid...

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on March 12, 2013 at 11:36 PM

Damn Olesky looks like a solid scrapper. Nice job pummeling Bowman.

Posted by kkdowning on March 13, 2013 at 06:26 PM

Great start for Oleksy -- both in terms of fighting and solid D (with 4 points). Oleksy punches Bowman into submission

Posted by thunderfist on March 13, 2013 at 09:03 PM

eh, bowman i give you an A for effort, and respect points for the lid toss, but this isn't the same as punching a bobo doll in your basement. might wanna ask westgarth for pointers. win oleksy.
