Other Penalties: Each player received a minor for removing their helmet prior to a fight and a game misconduct for third fighting major in same game.
Rihanna and Tina Turner are setting up an intervention for Petrovic.
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..
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)
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!!!
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
Kane assaults Petrovic like a puck bunny
Someone who never fights a heavyweight, despite having boxing training,. . .fights a non fighter three times and celebrates . . .. call me unimpressed
Kane absolutely demolishes Petro...has the boy leaking. Not sure about this boy...does he really believe he could ever beat Kane...AT ANYTHING?
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.
if punching while your opponent is on the ice counts ....then Kane wins ! When men played and fought ...this didn't happen
Petrovic really sucks at fighting.
Petrovic is a human punch stopper!
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
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
loved this, ek3
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.
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
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
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
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.
Kane had a few solid shots...a lot of love making..Kane wins the tilt
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.
Kane came out strong and made Petrovic hesitant to throw! Wicked Fight!
Kane 3-0 Love seeing Petrovic getting BEAT UP= PRICELESS
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
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.
Loved seeing Kane manhandle Petrovic, Kane won all three fights hands down
Not much of a fight..kane shudnt even try..lol..too much dancing around..
I expected more for their 3rd fight of the game
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
Give him credit. Has anyone else taken 3 tko's in the same night?
Rd 3 - Kane Petrovic should have let this go...3rd time was the worst.
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??
Was at the game. Kaner was egging him on in the last two.. Props for Petrovic for not backing down..
Linesmen do the damage falling on the players.
Kane absolutely works Petrovic in the final fight of a 3 round sweep
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...
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.
Petro was leaking at the end. First punch by Kane was a doozie.
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
Petrovic is a joke
Kane would like to fight Petrovic a few more times...
That right to the face was a crusher
Best night of the season for fight fans!
Why did Petrovic even try...
Petrovic just couldnt get enough
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
Petrovics may want to avoid Kane next time they play.....
He must have thought it was white boy day. It ain't.
lol hopefully by the third time he got it
Kane dominates x3. Petrovic does get the GHH.
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.
Lol damnnn E Kane with a true game long ass kicking In front of the home crowd too Kid deserves props here
I think Alex might want to take up a different hobby. Or at least a different opponent. All Kane all night.
very entertaining trifecta.
I feel bad for enjoying that so damn much.
Kane is a piece of $hit.
kane does a nice job in neutralizing petrovic's left, then proceeds to feed him rights, of which most connect! total control and domination by kane
Can't stand Kane...one of the dirtier players...but he handles Petrovic quite easily. AND YES, my comment is the same for all three fights
Alex hoping that third time's a charm, but twas not to be. Getting beat thrice by the same guy in one game is probably an NHL record.
Kane take the tie breaker
When is this fool going to learn? I think he crossed the line from having ba!!$ to just plain making bad choices. Clean, decisive sweep for Kane!
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.
Well that went a little better than the first 2 for Petrovic. Still an L.
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.
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!
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.
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.
