As a San Jose fan I have absolutely no bias towards this fight what-so-ever. I could care less about these two teams but to you dummy's calling Kessel a bitch or that he should get assault charges, you're nuts. Scott got what he deserved. He knows very well Kessel isn't a fighter and obviously doesn't want to go but drops the gloves and tries to get the jump on him anyways. This is the NHL. You fight when both parties agree to it not when one giant oaf decides he's gonna attack a portly 5 foot 11 skill player. If you are an enforcer and you go after someone who NEVER fights when they aren't a willing combatant you deserve to get hacked.

I'm trying to get upset about the Kessel slashes..... but.... damn, it's John Scott...you use an axe on a tree don't you? Followed up with a win against Flynn...

Kessel just did what Ted Lindsay, or Stan Mikita, or Bobby Clarke, or Ken Linseman would have done. He just didn't do it quite as well.

scott is a pussy going for a guy half his size with a cheap shot

Anyone here that's calling Phil Kessel a bitch about slashing Scott has most likely never put on a pair of skates in their entire life. You've got a 6'7" goon who can barely even skate charging a 5'10" skill player. Real tough-guy. If you were in Kessel's skates and a giant behemoth was coming after you, what would you do? Scott is a chump who doesn't belong in the NHL, bottom line. I give Kessel even more credit for coming back and spearing him at the end. Total bush-league by Scott, what a piece of garbage. And this is all coming from a Bruins fan, by the way.

Phil not only chopped down Snott but he messed up his girlfriend Flynn also LMAO. Snott broke the code by going after a skilled player. If he really didn't like the Devane on Tropp beating, I am sure Devane would have obliged him later on. So the only bitch here is Snott and all Buffalo Sabre fans that are sour grapes that they lost the fights and the game. PS build a straw factory and start sucking it up its gonna happen much more this season!

Kessel easily wins his second fight in the NHL.

Posted by srehm1 on September 23, 2013 at 05:53 PM

Kessel with the win here, cutting Flynn.

Posted by bigdog2007 on September 23, 2013 at 10:28 AM

Kessel carves up the Sabre! Who knew?? The midget can throw em.

Posted by Flames9339 on September 22, 2013 at 11:13 PM

Kessle did well in this one. surprising.

Posted by bled01 on September 23, 2013 at 04:08 PM

Not a fan of Kessel at all, but I have no issues with him taking a swing at Scott with his stick. Scott had no business trying to go with Kessel.

Posted by Humper on September 23, 2013 at 09:35 AM

Eff Scott and Flynn. The whole (hole?) Sabres team, actually.

Posted by Gawd on September 23, 2013 at 10:13 AM

So now all you retards insert the name of your star player and have Scott attack him unprovoked ,you'd want your guy chopping at his feet to save his live also.So I guess you won't have a problem with say Orr and McLaren just grabbing say stamkos and st louis and just pounding them ? Of coarse not,nobody wants this ,the buff coach and Scott have to catch some of the blame for all this ,but hey Kessel won a fight ! Go figure

Posted by MacLarens_fist on September 23, 2013 at 09:02 AM

Kessels upper cuts ended it and bloodied him up - Flynn also says he is done. Snott says to Kessel at the circle "I'm going to drop you." Kessels response - SMART! Chop that DB for attempting to jump him. This all started from Tropp getting demo'd. I fight which Tropp started (poor decision on his part). Snott felt like he needed to even the score - by picking KESSEL?! Fighting in the NHL is going to get tossed if fighters go after skilled players for sure!!! I loved this fight though - as I die hard Leafs fan that lives 30 minutes from Buffalo - I love the rivalry getting this shot of adrenaline!

Posted by travist on March 03, 2015 at 09:22 PM

scott is such a goon.

Posted by MeatPlow on September 24, 2013 at 10:06 PM

i'm not even gonna vote on this game other than to say Scott didnt get exactly what he was looking for?

Posted by DARCY T on September 25, 2013 at 05:11 AM

both guys landed 1 or 2 but kessel made flynn bleeding somehow and flynn stopped fighting...im calling it a tko win kessel

Posted by DR.SABREHATRED on September 23, 2013 at 12:12 PM

KESSLE TAKES ON SCOTT AND THEN BEATS UP FLYNN!!!!!!!!! I WISH KESSEL WOULD OF HACKED THAT BIG TURDS FOOT OFF AHAHHAHHA!! KESSEL SHOULD BE GIVEN A MONETARY BONUS!!!! THE GAYBRES ARE GUTLESS COWARDS HAHAHHAHAHHAH SORRY TO STATE THE OBVIOUS HERE, BUT ALL VISUAL EVIDENENCE LEADS ONE TO BELIEVE THAT THE SABRES ARE WUUUUUUUSSIES!!!!! AHAHAHHAHAHAHAH AND KESSEL IS A GIANT KILLER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by Jackiep on September 23, 2013 at 04:04 PM

No problem with the initial slash; as others have said, Scott had no business going after an A-List player. Kessel has a right to defend himself from that ape. However, the 2nd slash and the spear (both from behind) should get Kessel at least five regular season games.

Philly

Posted by shawnrocks on September 24, 2013 at 12:11 PM

Kessel running for his life scott getting slashed and punched by 3 players at same time. I don't like either team but kessel ran like a girl did everything but try to kick to get away then comes back after and gives scott another stick. TRUE PUNK

Posted by CheapSeats on September 23, 2013 at 10:13 AM

Kessel is a pussy

Posted by Langway on September 24, 2013 at 10:41 PM

Kessel is gonna get a big time beat down the next time these two teams face each other. Swinging the stick at the legs? What a bitch.

Posted by overhandrights on February 16, 2016 at 10:08 PM

kessel won the fight but proved didn't look the part of a masterson trophy winner with his cowardly stick work again... would have had my respect if he had taken his chances with scott (without weapons)

Posted by kkdowning on September 24, 2013 at 09:09 AM

Ha, 6Dupont called it. Anyway, Flynn should be embarrassed by the effort and losing to Kessel in the aftermath

Posted by Raoul Duke 708 on November 14, 2013 at 11:58 AM

Leafs fan or not, you have to enjoy Kessel poking Scott with his stick after the whole thing settles down.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on October 02, 2013 at 11:47 PM

Kessel hammered Flynn!

Posted by laus3 on September 23, 2013 at 07:57 AM

Kessel... What a little bitch. All I have to say!

Posted by DotRats on September 23, 2013 at 09:33 AM

Kessel is the biggest loser, has to use his stick multiple times like a European player...cuts Flynn with his shield. Kessel wins a 10-15 game suspension, that's about it!! This is what happens when you schedule a home and home with no day off, funny that the next 2 meetings are the same scenario 11/15-11/16...Slap Shot Part 3

Posted by Dzuk on September 23, 2013 at 08:42 AM

Kessel should be suspended for that cheap chichen shit stick work...hacking at the legs...cheap shot artist!!!

Posted by Spug on September 23, 2013 at 06:07 AM

Kessel murders a relative unknown after giving Scott the lumber pretty good. You see a bit of the fight on the replay, enough to see Kessel landing some hooks underneath, enough to cut Flynn for the W. 6'8 goon vs 5'10 all-star and you guys are calling Kessel a pussy and a coward? I guess it's easy to froth that kind of nonsense behind a keyboard but use some common sense, you sound idiotic expecting Kessel to fight this guy.

Posted by billy jack on September 23, 2013 at 05:23 PM

kessel tried using his stick in philly then again twice at a guy who had 3 guys on him.im betting someone gets this guy that [email protected] him self so bad he starts swinging his stick at anyone he looks at.Those are the guys that scare me,the cowards that over react in a violent way.if scott wanted kessel he would of got kessel hell or high water.but he didnt,now he does.

Posted by brc2396 on September 23, 2013 at 01:00 AM

Kessel Won the fight But I Think it was a DQ for USING A STICK AS A WEAPON! I know it wasn't on the same guy, but if there is a toughness ranking in Hockey Kessel Just fell below guys who have never fought before. I mean how many times has Floyd Mayweather gone into the ring and started off kicking people.

Posted by swany65 on September 23, 2013 at 09:13 PM

dang I wish there where more John Scotts in this world. The NHL would be a much more interesting place. For you youngsters, this is how it was back in the day. None of this code bullshit.

Posted by RangersSuck NJD on September 23, 2013 at 02:57 PM

what a bitch , what a bitch

Posted by Hkmert1 on September 23, 2013 at 03:43 PM

Kessel is puke on ice.....scumbag....hope he gets carted off in a body bag soon....

Posted by cible on September 23, 2013 at 12:43 AM

Wow that's probably one of the psss iest stuff i have seen in a long time. He comes back later to spear him?!?!?! Thats a green light to pull a Domi on Ulf Samuellson in my books the next time they meet!!! P.S not one of the tough guys went with Scott after multiple invitations( Devane, Clarkson, Brodie) If one of them would have went this would not have happened!

Posted by dyerardi on September 23, 2013 at 07:21 AM

Kessel is just a puss*, simple. If you look closely, regardless of what was said, he was staring at Scott and put his hand on Scott first. Then to back-peddle and slash? HA! He'll get his...keep your head up, Kessel.

Posted by DuaneSutter on September 22, 2013 at 11:49 PM

Kessell deserves 10 games for the 2 tomahawk slashes on Scott! What a piece of shit. He even hit him after his 3rd man-in teammate came to his rescue! Then he spears him when he's still tied up? WTF? That's called assault with a dangerous weapon & a prison sentence in the real world. And what's with the homer announcers giggling like school girls? WTF is up with them? Suspend them too! I don't like either team, but I know shitheads when I see them.

Posted by GreatMurray on September 23, 2013 at 09:24 AM

Scott goes after Kessel...what a man! Kessel ends up with Flynn and smokes him big time. Kessel had every right to use his stick on Scott. If he had a gun and shot him it would have been justifiable homicide because Kessel had to be in fear for his life. I watched this game and never saw Scott offer to anyone. He came off the bench and went right after Kessel to exact payback for the knock-out of a non-fighter. Scott is a fearsome dude. But he can't play hockey and he is probably brain-dead stupid!
