Rihanna and Tina Turner are setting up an intervention for Petrovic.

Posted by The Mad House on February 10, 2016 at 01:07 AM

What a GREAT moment in the NHL season Two pretty darn good players go for the hat trick of fights! These guys saved the best for last It just looked old school From the helmet toss The fans going nuts Guys coming together, separating, then coming back together The Sabres are down 3 at this point.. But you'd never know it after hearing the fans reaction to this YEAH LET'S GET RID OF FIGHTING, EH BOYS? Good to see Kaner showing passion throughout this game Good to see pure anger in these scraps I mean it looked like they really wanted to hurt each other Imagine that. Fighting a guy to try and hurt him? Not just tying up and waiting for the linesmen. Great job, boys. You've given me a great memory here PS: I think the last time I remember seeing two guys remove the lids was Peluso-Boredeleau a few years back..

Posted by von_swine on February 10, 2016 at 12:07 AM

the cameras missed the brief exchanges between these two after this 3rd tilt... Petrovic: "It's not over til I say it's over!" Kane: 'It's over, schulb.." Referee: "Kane's right.." the risk/reward for Petrovic's pride most likely not worth it after getting spanked in 3 straight.. #9 FTW (X3)

Posted by Richterfan on February 11, 2016 at 06:17 PM

You didn't see this a lot, even in the heyday! Enough bad mouthing Petrovic! Give him credit for trying to even the score. Takes guts to go after a guy you already lost too...TWICE. Kudos Kane and also to the refs for letting them go!!!

Posted by lucic17 on February 09, 2016 at 10:37 PM

Awesome blast from the past-three fights and a game misconduct. Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. All Kane as Petrovic finally gets the beating he narrowly avoided in the first two fights. I was looking for this one because they still had unfinished business after two fights. When do they play again and will Petrovic take some boxing lessons or wisely not look for a rematch? Sweet

Posted by Boston Sucks on February 09, 2016 at 10:07 PM

Kane assaults Petrovic like a puck bunny

Posted by Detroit_Caps on February 10, 2016 at 05:32 AM

Someone who never fights a heavyweight, despite having boxing training,. . .fights a non fighter three times and celebrates . . .. call me unimpressed

Posted by Great Murray on February 10, 2016 at 08:34 AM

Kane absolutely demolishes Petro...has the boy leaking. Not sure about this boy...does he really believe he could ever beat Kane...AT ANYTHING?

Posted by English_Bruin on February 10, 2016 at 12:21 PM

I like Petrovic, was onto a hiding and had a sore face but fair play to him for the go. Alas he lost convincingly here and never recovered from skating into the opening punch on the beak.

Posted by slysi on February 16, 2016 at 04:38 PM

if punching while your opponent is on the ice counts ....then Kane wins ! When men played and fought ...this didn't happen

Posted by smichaels10 on February 10, 2016 at 05:33 PM

Petrovic really sucks at fighting.

Posted by chancedawg on February 10, 2016 at 06:32 PM

Petrovic is a human punch stopper!

Posted by DARCY T on February 10, 2016 at 12:29 PM

round 3 they were more cautious this time.kane wanted to make it 3-0 and petrovic wanted to win at least once.nice old school moment though.i dont remember when was the last time 2 guys fought each other 3 times in a game except for barch vs gallant in a pre-season game e few years back. and nobody expected it from these guys.kane had zero fights before this game and now he has 3 and petrovic doubled his number of fights this season in this game win kane but props to both guys for nice little series.hopefully they'll continue next time they play each other

Posted by jferguson on February 10, 2016 at 11:16 AM

the key to success in life is recognizing what skills you have and using them to the best of your ability. It would be wise for Alex to ponder his "fighting" skills and how he chooses opponents. Both seemed to be lacking on this night

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on February 09, 2016 at 11:44 PM

loved this, ek3

Posted by woolly mammoth on February 10, 2016 at 12:48 AM

Somewhere inside Petrovic's battered mind, he seems to have convinced himself without even coming close to consider questioning his decision in a case of extreme self-denial that it would be a good idea to fight Kane an innumerable amount of times in an attempt to "win" just once. Fortunately, Emperor Palpatine's, I mean Emperor Bettman's, "elite guard," save him from testing probability and most likely fate before he were to turn into a catatonic man, munching on smushed bananas in a lightless basement cell on the Bett Star.

Posted by jbatt77 on February 10, 2016 at 05:32 AM

Old time hockey! To borrow some lines from Reggie Dunlop: "He (Kane) challenged the Panthers" "Called us names!...but Alex was there" "Alex is a killer!"..."Alex is a mess" Kane 3-0

Posted by clipper98 on February 15, 2016 at 06:09 PM


Posted by SURESHOT27 on February 10, 2016 at 10:06 AM

Kane can throw quality punches people. If you want to kick his ass I recommend starting the fight with extreme force. You have to Big Ern 'em and don't let up till he throws ya some dolla bills yo!! HAHAHAH

Posted by EK65 on February 10, 2016 at 12:28 PM

Round 3 - In a old school twist both guys square up at center and remove their helmets. The announcers & Fans were both equally into this scrap. Both guys had big smiles on their face during/at the end of the fight. (And yeah the fans don't wanna see this right?) All Kane for the 3rd time. Unfortunately for Petrovic the night doesn't go so well in the fight department. I overall loved the scrap & 6. @Wooly love the star wars. @DOC love the comment. @TMH love the nostalgia

Posted by bigmike53 on February 10, 2016 at 01:55 PM

They remove their lids and have at it for round 3! Unfortunately for Petrovic this doesn't end up any better than the previous two. Kane catches him in the nose and cuts him above the eye to win this scrap. Kane had commented after the game they'd probably fight again if they didn't get thrown out after 3 fights. Great old school anger and another win for Kane.

Posted by joeg1972 on February 16, 2016 at 03:40 PM

Kane had a few solid shots...a lot of love making..Kane wins the tilt

Posted by elpadrino5 on February 10, 2016 at 08:52 AM

Rd. 3. Always sketchy when one guy latches on and one guy is in no man's land trying to dodge the first punch. Alex eats one, and then doesn't get started after re-set. Kane used his reach advantage well all night.

Posted by RichardSlitneck on March 06, 2016 at 04:07 PM

Kane came out strong and made Petrovic hesitant to throw! Wicked Fight!

Posted by nbecc1 on February 10, 2016 at 08:29 AM

Kane 3-0 Love seeing Petrovic getting BEAT UP= PRICELESS

Posted by boldbilly on February 11, 2016 at 03:39 AM

Petrovic has the smarts of a broccoli ..... Three fights all of them loses, but he goes out in style making sure that he is bleeding just in case someone actually thought he did okay.... Hey look at that it looks as though 3 or 4 people actually thought Petrovic won hmmm I wonder who voted for him? His mom , his dad , a sibling ? MAYBE GREG CAMPBELL .....lol. For those of you who don't know the name Petovic is of Slavic origin .....it loosely translates to BIG USELESS PUNCHING BAG

Posted by FHgrad99 on February 11, 2016 at 03:08 AM

Part 3 of the trilogy was all Kane. I don't think Petrovic got a single shot in this time but he took a couple of bombs from Kane.

Posted by Cameron Rock on March 21, 2023 at 11:20 AM

Loved seeing Kane manhandle Petrovic, Kane won all three fights hands down

Posted by Hoksida Hota on February 16, 2016 at 05:03 PM

Not much of a fight..kane shudnt even try..lol..too much dancing around..

Posted by nait on February 10, 2016 at 08:14 PM

I expected more for their 3rd fight of the game

Posted by rocky 1 on February 10, 2016 at 12:18 AM

Edge Kane!

Posted by jerry s on February 10, 2016 at 05:39 AM

can some one on the panthers tell petrovic not to lead with his chin lol but glad to see 2 players battle all game reminds me of the 70s and 90s NHL

Posted by hok1n on February 10, 2016 at 12:30 AM

Give him credit. Has anyone else taken 3 tko's in the same night?

Posted by travist on February 11, 2016 at 01:02 PM

Rd 3 - Kane Petrovic should have let this go...3rd time was the worst.

Posted by SouthPaw017 on February 10, 2016 at 04:58 PM

What we got here is... Failure to.... Learn!! Damn it man, you go to the well one, two, three times too many, you're bound to drown... Somewhere, Adrian Peterson is asking, was that a Kane or a switch??

Posted by jtl6713 on February 10, 2016 at 04:39 AM

Was at the game. Kaner was egging him on in the last two.. Props for Petrovic for not backing down..

Posted by Fast Hawk on February 10, 2016 at 12:11 AM

Linesmen do the damage falling on the players.

Posted by RealShadyMcCoy on February 09, 2016 at 11:04 PM

Kane absolutely works Petrovic in the final fight of a 3 round sweep

Posted by Pacific on February 10, 2016 at 12:06 AM


Posted by slambo on February 11, 2016 at 03:32 AM

FOTY contender... Kane whooped his monkey ass!! What the hell was petrified thinking?? I think the Bass fight was still the best of the year so far, only because it was a close fight... What do you tell petrovic with two black eyes?? nothin', you already done told him twice...

Posted by F_CKERS on February 18, 2016 at 10:52 AM

YES! Pure coKane domination! 3-0 on the night! Center ice. Blood. Guts. Lots of goals. Fans got their money's worth. Petrovicoff gets the true Gordy Howe hat trick. I would've loved to be at this game.

Posted by Gbuck18 on February 10, 2016 at 08:16 AM

Petro was leaking at the end. First punch by Kane was a doozie.

Posted by mannythegoat on February 11, 2016 at 11:13 PM

Not close. Kane rocks him early. Petrovic only really lands one jersey-jab in the whole fight, and Kane staggers him again towards the end. All Kane, all night. I enjoyed Petrovic's willingness to keep trying to get it back though. "And if you kick my ass, you got to do it again, every time that you see me, til I finally win..." Sabres fan

Posted by powerforward92 on February 10, 2016 at 08:23 AM

Petrovic is a joke

Posted by mjf0509 on February 09, 2016 at 10:12 PM

Kane would like to fight Petrovic a few more times...

Posted by wallysy1 on February 10, 2016 at 01:26 AM

That right to the face was a crusher

Posted by mygameworn on February 10, 2016 at 09:58 AM

Best night of the season for fight fans!

Posted by Snobalt on February 10, 2016 at 04:19 PM

Why did Petrovic even try...

Posted by jawnsonsauce on February 09, 2016 at 11:48 PM

Petrovic just couldnt get enough

Posted by [email protected] on February 11, 2016 at 11:50 PM

Fight of the year as far as I'm concerned. Great crowd noise, a real fun one to watch. Kane has lightning fast hands, that first pop looked like it must have hurt like a bastard

Posted by JoeR on February 16, 2016 at 11:35 PM

Petrovics may want to avoid Kane next time they play.....

Posted by MilburyKOMyKid on February 10, 2016 at 04:46 AM

He must have thought it was white boy day. It ain't.

Posted by tom939 on February 10, 2016 at 12:49 AM

lol hopefully by the third time he got it

Posted by Bloodbank on February 11, 2016 at 12:31 AM

Kane dominates x3. Petrovic does get the GHH.

Posted by glovedropper08 on February 10, 2016 at 03:00 AM

Kane has dropped his gloves 8 times this year but usually the other guy either doesn't accept or the linesman break it up before it gets going. Boy can he throw em'! Those punches had some awesome speed and form. 3-0 for Evander on the night. Believe he scored a goal too.

Posted by b_eazzzy on February 12, 2016 at 12:58 AM

Lol damnnn E Kane with a true game long ass kicking In front of the home crowd too Kid deserves props here

Posted by first 6 on February 10, 2016 at 11:17 PM

I think Alex might want to take up a different hobby. Or at least a different opponent. All Kane all night.

Posted by Titzmgee on February 10, 2016 at 12:10 AM

very entertaining trifecta.

Posted by Mansa on February 19, 2016 at 01:20 PM

I feel bad for enjoying that so damn much.

Posted by Jesticle on March 12, 2016 at 11:00 PM

Kane is a piece of $hit.

Posted by illukka on February 11, 2016 at 05:29 AM

kane does a nice job in neutralizing petrovic's left, then proceeds to feed him rights, of which most connect! total control and domination by kane

Posted by Mounty in NC on February 10, 2016 at 10:25 AM

Can't stand Kane...one of the dirtier players...but he handles Petrovic quite easily. AND YES, my comment is the same for all three fights

Posted by Humper on February 10, 2016 at 12:13 PM

Alex hoping that third time's a charm, but twas not to be. Getting beat thrice by the same guy in one game is probably an NHL record.

Posted by craig_9806 on February 10, 2016 at 02:38 AM

Kane take the tie breaker

Posted by yankees67 on February 09, 2016 at 10:28 PM

When is this fool going to learn? I think he crossed the line from having ba!!$ to just plain making bad choices. Clean, decisive sweep for Kane!

Posted by devilsadvocate on February 11, 2016 at 04:33 AM

When you lose 3 straight you'd have to man up and admit the other guy is just a better fighter, which Kane clearly demonstrated that he was. Kane obviously has had boxing lessons because he outboxed Petrovic.

Posted by dean94harrison on February 09, 2016 at 10:24 PM

Well that went a little better than the first 2 for Petrovic. Still an L.

Posted by CravenMoorhead on February 09, 2016 at 10:33 PM

It took him 60 minutes, but Petrovic got learned the old fashioned way tonight. I'll keep an eye on the injury report for the Panthers' next game, no doubt he'll be out with a lower body injury after getting his poop cannon turned into ground beef three times in a row by the same guy.. not to mention those bloody gashes, both the one on his eye and the one between his legs. Good luck next time P-diddly squat! Maybe next time bring your big boy trousers.

Posted by sedinfan on February 09, 2016 at 11:07 PM

Kane dominates all night, but lets take this with a grain of salt. Petrovic had a draw earlier with Greggory Campbell. My grandma has quicker hand speed that Petrovic.

As a Bernie Sanders democrat I have not been so happy since Martin Luther Kings "I have a Dream Speech" in 1963!

Posted by kkdowning on February 09, 2016 at 11:05 PM

Third time was not the charm for Petro. Good on him for having the gumption (is that a word?) for going a third time. Unfortunately for him, he lost for a third time. Petro takes a shot early as a result of fumbling his grip. Kane then gets the better grip once they re-engage and Kane takes a clear and the most decisive win of the evening.

Posted by King of Goons on February 23, 2016 at 07:25 PM

Can't stand Kane. Think he's a loser. That being stated, he completely humiliated Petrovic here. 3-3 in the fights. Ditto to everything The Mad House wrote. Awesome post his way.
