Other Penalties: Bennett received a minor for slashing.
Trouba was looking to fight Backland just prior cause he knows Backland doesn't fight. Then he slashss Bennett and wants to go.. If you look closely you can see the exact moment when Trouba realizes, He just fucked up.
Now this is good hockey fight.
Probably #1 this season. These guys were chucking like crazy with absolutely no regard for defense whatsoever. Bennett had a couple of real solid shots. Totally worth the price of admission (although in the interest of full disclosure, I admit I didn't pay to come on this site).
Both guys were swinging for the fences with bad intent! Great scrap leaving the two combatants leaking and Bennett as the winner.
Trouba is an overrated, annoying, arrogant idiot. Glad to see Bennett fill him in
It's amazing how a couple of dud announcers can make a great fight seem anticlimactic. These announcers are brutal. Fire them.
fight of year candidate.
Great scrap. Just throwing bombs, I don't think there was a clear winner
That crowd should all be banned from future games. Shoulda been on their feet screaming for that battle. Great fight
What a fight. Haymakers a plenty. Fight of the year so far.
GOOD TILLY. Trouba landed some monsters at the start, as did Bennett. Very even.
Blood win for Bennet, lots thrown, but not much landing, this fights getting overrated
Smythe division classic... the 'lil guy' takes no refusal as he punishes the larger opponent handily. #93 FTW
Not a strong tactical fight ... but a heck of a bombs away bout///
Trouba should stick to contract hold outs.
it was okey. trouba got damaged
That was the best fight of the year, they were actually throwing punches !! And both were bloodied !! Love it.
Alot of energy! Punches landed. Both players bloodied, though Trouba more so. Great fight!
I take back my shit fight night comment back. This is a classic, both leaking especially Trouba, with no defense. Bennett does well, have to give him the edge in one of the best fights in a long time. Great job fellas, middleweights and featherweights more entertaining than any heavyweights these days!
Nice fight! Both guys gave all they had. Cant ask for more!
This makes up for the turkeys so far tonight. What a bomb throwing brawl. WAY TO GO BOYS! Bennett gets the win but they both get big numbers!!!!
Absolute war between two "skilled" players. What a fight. Both guys end up bloodied. Huge punches by Bennett get him the win in this fight that may very well be the best we get all season. 8
Wow! Sammy Boy let the tiger out of the tank in that bout for the win.
trouba landed more and better before last 3 right which trouba had no answer for and linesmen had to step in...both guys were bloodied.nice.gave it a 9...probably FOTY for me so far
Very good scrap. Could be bout of the year ?
CLOSE ...edge to Bennett
Terrific scrap. Bennett draws a lot more blood, and gets just a couple more punches in to win it.
Smaller Bennet really takes it to the larger Trouba. Way to go Benet. Don't take no crap from him.
Good fight. One of the better bouts this year. Not complaining but linesmen should have let them go longer.
Bennett throws WILDLY in his fights. I love seeing his throwback style! One day, he's gonna bust his hand. Maybe that will come after he crushes someone's orbital bone!
Look beyond the blood and this was a fairly square matchup. Well done, boys!
I can't say I have seen a better fight this season. Really surprised by Bennett here and pleased by the passion shown by both. Trouba early, maybe then Bennett just would not quit throwing with complete malice. Helmets off to both these guys. Great position players with grit. I'd take either on my team, even better, both.
Bennett owned him.
Best fight of the season! Bennett did a bit more damage.
Great fight have to give it to Benny.
Bennett, 3-0 on the year, who knew?!?!
Now this is some good shit! Real nastiness and bad intentions between these two, and they both gave as good as they got. Bennett sealed at at the end, though, stunning Trouba with those last heavy rights to take take the win in a barnburner.
This was one of those fights where you know both of them landed something that did damage. Bennett was very active and he clearly landed something that caused Trouba to start leaking badly. Bennett with the win, in a very good scrap.
So far fight of the year... or right up there with the best. Bennet landed the better shots. No defense, all offense
Really good scrap, edge to Bennett both in shots landed and damage done. I suspect Trouba thought the little guy would be easy pickings. Poor decision-making on his part.
Trouba is a 'spot picker' who only wants to fight Euros or non-fighters. After seeing him get fed by Bennett I now know why!
I know everyone thinks Bennett won but I don't see it. Both were definitely swinging for the fences, both got cut and suffered some leakage. But I don't see a decided W either way. The amount of leakage doesn't determine a winner. Draw, 7.
They both landed and they both kept going, good job boys. Both ended up bloodied. I hate to give it a winner because you have to appreciate that both guys showed up both guys took a punch and kept going, and that's pretty rare these days.
Wasn't Bennett the one that couldn't do a pull-up at the combine?
Bennett wins despite being given a bloody nose. He just outlands and bloodies Trouba with a helmet hit. Solid free-swinging affair, about as good as you'll see in the NHL these days. Super close 7 to Bennett
Good fight with some damage.
Props to both guys for throwin with bad intentions. Win Bennett and hockey fight fans
Swing and a miss, swing and and miss, gets cut by helmet, and zebras jump in. As I type this, the the fights rated at 8.1 really? This is barely a 3.
Trouba is one of the bitchiest of nhl bitches. See him try to get in a couple after the linesmen jump in to save his face?
Holy crap Batman them boys were CHUCKIN em. Top 10 of the year easily when voting comes in - might even end up top 3. I think you go draw on this one but I could see a W for Bennett too.
Bennett started it with his stickwork and got a well deserved extra 2 minutes. Trouba is the more talented and only slightly smaller than Bennett Bennett better keep his head up next time they play as Trouba will likely take it off if he gets a chance (see Stone hit)
Trouba is a good fighter Also seems to surprise guys But holy fricken crap Sam Bennett did not care He was throwing BOMBS Before this year I didn't even know Bennett fought But he's been an exciting fighter Great scrap boys Bennett with the edge
Great fight, Bennett with the edge!!
Trouba gets the win in my books. Homer call closer to a draw. But troubs the win, his visor cut him
