The two goalies decide to go at it among the rest of the chaos, each shedding their gloves, blockers, and masks and meeting at center ice. They grab ahold of each other and Emery throws five straight rights while Biron is trying to move away from the punches and eventually falls to the ice. Emery pins Biron on the ice and then eventually lets him up only to get tripped to the ice himself by Biron. Emery gets back to his feet and the two skate away from each other. Peters spots Emery over near the side boards afterwards and skates towards him with a mean look on his face. Peters grabs Emery and throws a right to start things off. One of the linesmen tries to grab Peters, but quickly decides to let them continue. Peters throws another right and Emery attempts a short right of his own. Peters connects with three straight rights to the side of Emery's head and Emery again just throws a weak right that comes up short. They exchange rights and Peters pushes Emery towards the side boards while Emery is smiling and laughing. Peters connects with another right, but the linesmen and one of the referees are right there to break things up. Other Penalties: Peters received an instigator, roughing and game misconduct.
Peters finds Emery up along the boards and locks on. Then Peters throws two punches barely touching Emery, then Emery throws one weak punch. Peters then throws four rights and then gets in a body shot, then Peters switches back to rights getting one more in. Emery then responds with one of his own, then they get up along the boards where Peters throws one more right and then the linesmen come in to break it up.
Peters won this fight, but he shouldn't have even gone in there in the first place. The Sens on the ice at the time should be ashamed of themselves for letting Emery go that long with Peters. Take a penalty, a fine, or a suspension, but get the f over there to defend your goalie you women!
Lindy declared that enough is enough with the head hunting. Murray is the one who should be dealt with for sending a goon out to hurt the Sabres star player, Murray started it, Lindy finished it. McGrattan has been owned by Peters, so stop with the McGrattan garbage.
emery is a bigger guy and can handle himself. He is probably one of the bigger goaltenders in the leauge and could take any goaltender toe to toe. Why not let him go against someone that is his size. to bad murray is to big of a bi*ch to step down off the glass and talk to Lindy face to face. cant wait till saturday its going to be a bloodbath i would scratch briere and spezza just so they dont get cheap shotted. cant wait to see the sabres screw some senators up
i'd like to point out the fact that when peters went after emery, all the senators stood there and watched. if one of ottawa's skaters went after biron or miller, all five guys would be there in an instant, ripping his face off. sens are absolutely pathetic and cowardly.
Peters kicked Emery's ass. and this was a good job done by Peters and the Sabres as a team becuz theyre already beat up and this was good to see them take a stand as a team and if ur gonan take out our star we'll take out urs. WAY TO FUCKIN GO SABRES i gained alot of Respect for the Sabres as a team here and im sure this will go far aswell for the team and making them tighter as a team.
Peters third man in on a goalie fight, classless.
Hats off to emery , 2 fights , awsome . peters should be ashamed going after a goalie even after he just fought and kicked ass , the sens players new he is one tough cookie and can handle is own , he fought his whole carrer as a goalie . peters should look in the mirror and really start thinking is he really an enforcer or just a goon. not a sens or sab fan but good for emery to show that he is a battler . good job . I WOULD BE SUPRISED IF THERE IS ANY THING GOING TO HAPPEN ON SAT NIGHT.
Peters gets the win but Emery does well to hang in and not make a fool of himself against a top 10 guy
The hit WAS FROM BEHIND. Elbow was tucked at contact, only a split second after Drury released the puck, nice follow through with his arms. Other than the angle he came in at, a good job by Neil of finishing his check (Drury should have had his head up). I think that Ruff saw the follow through with the arm and thought he saw an elbow. Even if the hit was perfectly clean, Neil had caught the Buffalo Capt. flat footed and ran him. A reaction had to be expected. No excuse for putting skill players out there.
Kind of embarrassing that Peters didn't even sting Emery isn't it? Going after a goalie (albeit a tough one) after he's already fought may take a while to live down or at least not to be chriped at about. Too bad, Peters is my #2 fav.
If Emery did not have his tie-downs Emery would have done better.
I totally agree about the homer reviews. I hate the sens and buffalo equally. What else do you expect from Neil, although he's come a long way this season, he's still a goon. The hit on Drury was head hunting, but hes not the only guy who does it. Drury got caught with his head down, end of story. Ruff then sends out a tough guy line AFTER the sens sent out their scoring line since they had last change. Bit of a cheap move by Ruff. Mair is a total coward, Spezza can't fight, we've seen that. As for Peters, the guys a joke anyways. You see Emery laughing at him, he knows hes a joke. I am excited for tonight, although I'll only get highlites throughout the leafs game. Can't wait to see McGratton and Peters, I don't care who wins, it'll be old time hockey.
Peters is a marked man for running at Heatley then Emery. I hope he's half as tough as the Sabres fans think he is cuz Grats is a coming. Neil, McGratton vs Mair, Peters.....predict pain for the Sabres. Bryan Murray is an absolute moron, what did he think was going to happen ... puts Spezza and Heatley out there..what a tool
The Senators are a bunch of wusses, much like their fans and speech-impaired coach. The only way that punk Heatly will spill any blood is from behind the wheel ... and where was their captain ? I guess he stayed true to his roots and remained "neutral". Sat night Peters will beat McGrattan AGAIN, while the sens mulleted donught eating Molson swilling "fans" will leave the arena crying as usual.
Peters is a goof-- should have stayed out of it-- The goalies didn't care!
Peters is a puss. Fighting a goalie who already had a scrap. He should have killed Emery because he was fresh and is supposed to be a bad ass. His rep just dropped a few notches. You hear what I'm saying Sabres fans? PUSS-AY!!!
No wonder Emery didnt win the fight he was tired from biron I think peters is bush leauge
gotta give Emery credit for hanging in there
Wow, I can't believe that Peters couldn't dominate in a fight with a goalie, hmph!
Peters needs a clue and here it is; The goalies had a mutual fight. No forward or defenseman started it. Emery won becasue he stood up to a once respectable heavyweight.
Wasnt really a fight.
Seem's to me the only people that think the hit on Drury was dirty are Buf fan's? The puck was off of his stick for .5 sec, how is that a late hit? It was a nice clean hit. Lindy Ruff should be removed from the NHL for sending out Peters and the other no-name's out against some of Ottawa's top players. Peter's is a no talent bum. I thought he used to be a good tough guy but after watching him go after Emery he can't be considered a tough guy anymore. I'm not sure about anyone eles but i would love to see McGrattan lined up against Danial Brier for a little payback. It will all be on the head of Lindy Ruff when someone is hurt. Emery held his own against Peter's after he destroyed Biron. GOOOOOOOO SENSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Unbelievable homer reviews on both sides. Chris Neil is dirty. Period. Chris Drury should be aware at all times. Period. I'm not a big fan of either team but Neil did what he does and the Sabres responded how they hould have. Peters going after Emery was actually pretty cool. Of course the Sens should have pulled Peters apart but they didn't. Seems a bit gutless. If you go after the star and captain of a team with a head-hunting shoulder, you best expect some uglyness. This is great. Thanks Neil for starting all that crap. Hockey just got interesting again. (Emery smiling through both fights was F'N PRICELESS!)
Wow, look at the Sabres noobs crawl out of the rug like a bunch of cockroaches. Peters could barely beat a gassed Emery in full equipment. Must have been hard for him to get laughed at like that. Drury should learn to keep his head up and his helmet strapped on. Great hit by Chris Neil, the best grinder in the league. Lindy Ruff "whahhhhh".... first he says it was an elbow, then a late hit, then borderline, make up your mind.
notnow27 you really are the hockey expert (not to mention spelling aswell) first of all learn hockey and then maybe some english. damn these boards are funny especially when you have a dumb bolt like you trying to chirp behind a monitor. the sabres aren't going to make it through the playoffs this year. Looking like the sens of previous years with all those euro's. enough said, go penguins. bring laraque to pittsburgh!
Does Peters actually think he's tough by going after a goalie with about twice as much equipment on and has just been through a first fight??? what to go peters, you're my hero... Too bad mcgrattans gonna fill you in on saturday
Hey Buffalo fans!!! Wake up!!! It was a clean hit. Unfortunately, A great player (Drury) got hurt. Players do get hurt in this game by clean hits. That decision and display of crap that Ruff pulled afterwards was a joke. I am now a huge fan of Emery for attemping to fight a no good goon after already fighting Biron. That showed huge balls! I question why other Senator players didn't step in, it was cowardly. Peters should have been smacked for going after him.
Goalies fights, although funny, are a waste of time. They are protected by so much padding.
goalie vs player.... goalie gets extra points for this one
Saber fans go back to your factory jobs white trash...you no nothing about hockey and tons about loosing...How are those Bills??? Did they ever make it to a superbowl....OH YEAH THATS RIGHT! LOL Your town and team sucks and you will never win anything. Your known as the bum hole of the US, even other US cities are laughing at you.
Well for this I say Emery won, reason being he beat the crap out of Biron then peters comes in and jumps Emery, Please tell me why wasn't Peters suspended for this? Oh and By the way Buffalo fans, the hit was ruled clean by the NHL, Drury wouldn't have gotten a concussion if he wore his helmet right as that helmet is meant to prevent them, and who got fined 10k? Oh right Buffalo's Coach? And Mair has the nerver to call Heatley a Murderer? Well don't be surprised if he gets punched out every game Ottawa plays Buffalo in.
I understand that Buffalo had to send a message after Drury got hit, and they did just that. The Sens deserved what they got. However, the refs should have taken Peters off the ice before he jumped Emery. Seems like Emery was the only Sen on the ice that could fight.
Peters is a f****** goon... had to go after the goalie? Seriously? Are you that desperate? And as for that comment below regarding Neil going after Drury; that was not the case. Drury got caught for having his head down, was not paying attention, and Neil made him pay for it... nuff said
Enforcer picked a fight, and won on points. Couldn't quite finish him. Emery even landed a couple of his own. Not the best showing for a known tough guy, but still a win.
Jumping a Goalie who has already fought (and won) and who who is still recovering from a hand injury. He's tough. Do you think he'll fight Neil Saturday night? I doubt it.
peters kicks emerys asssssssssssssssss
just petey being petey
Maybe I need to see more of the game. From what I've seen here, I'd say that Peters is a puss and some Senator should have beat the shit out of him for screwing with their goalie.
peters is a pansy whats he going after a goalie for
win peters. emery was a boxer before he made the show, he should be able to take on a guy who was in a scrap just seconds before. he has all that goalie equipment to hide behind, and are you really telling me that frenchie biron took all his energy away from him? listen to biron talk about it after, he was only going with emery cause there was no-one else. good on peters for getting in there and sticking up for his goalie after that uber lame head hunter hit drury.
For all you who think ruff is wrong, the sabres lost 6 players in 6 games, 3 of which were against the sens. They needed to start protecting their players. And the start of the brawl happened when heatley crosschecked kalleta to the chest before the faceoff. So please dont cry when they got their asses handed to them. Dont provoke a lion, and you wont get mauled. And the hit was a little late, the issue was it was an intent to injure, and neil left his feet to hit drury in the head. The same exact hit by jansen earned a 3 game suspension. And its ok for neil to be out against the sabres top plyaers, but not ok for the sabres to do the same? Dont be so ignorant craig.
Peters tunes up Emery.
emery was lucky that peters dit not connect
haha peters is the man but emery had no chance at all against him and biron had no chance against emery but Neil is just a fucking bitch and peters should knock his fuckin dirty ass out next game
i'll admit this fight should've never happened. letting a forward fight your goalie is unacceptable. if you watched sports center that night, you would have heard the reporters say that the senators were cowards for not sticking up for their goalie. when peters came after emery they all just stood there. that's showing a good team. still it was unbelievable to see emery smile after getting destroyed by peters. what an idiot.
WIN for Peters in a total old school moment.
You know if I were one of the Senators, I would have grabbed Biron and started pounding on him. If you're going to pick on my goalie, I'm going to pick on yours.
Go Peters!! Peters kicked butt!!!!!!!!!! RAY EMERY SUCKS!
The sens fans are still crying about how the sabres kicked their asses in the playoffs last year so you will have to forgive some of them for their dumb comments. That was a clean hit, he just hit him with his shoulder but it was seconds late and he wasn't looking so it can go either way.
Buffalo TAKES CARE OF BUSINESS!!!!!!emery is a joke.ahahahahaha i hope sat nite there is a NICE bounty on the head of NEIL....HAHAH MCGRATTON...PETERS HAS RE-ARRANGED HIS FACE BEFORE..
Listen up Sens fans....first of all your coach Murray shouldn't have been so stupid to let his top line out with Spezza. Emery and biron not so evenly matched. Peters wasnt even trying to hurt Emery knowing the possible consequences. Oh an Mcgratton can't fight for anything. According to the assoiciated press Lindy told his boys to run at em...I was fortunate enought to be at this epic game. I saw the cheap hit to drury. Blood was everywhere...they didn't show half of the crap for those of you who whatched the game at home. The sabres answered to frustration and they did what they needed to do. You don't think that after practically everyone of our players has been hurt by stupid sh**T like that we were not going to respond??? Second of all the referees sucked!! Really bad as usual but this time they wanted to give the game to ottowa. After the game an Ottawa fan acknowledged that the referees sucked really bad. On another note Brian Murray is a midget irishman who is afraid to admit he was wrong. I have never seen or been to a regular season game like that one. It was so elecrified and probably the best game I have ever seen ever. Oh and lastly the sabres beat the sens in the playoffs last year...now we are even better. Lets hope the sens can stay in it. I want the sabres to win again! GO sabres!
if any of the senators went after miller the whole bench would b after them... the sens r a bunch of cowards i dont care if emery is ur best fighter u dont let him fight someone other than a goalie.... fuckin pussys....im glad peters fucked emery up... go after our captin we go after ur goalie.... oh yea and sens fans whos in first place???? oh yea BUFFALO!!!!!!
Peters sucks, fight a goolkeper, he must be a idiot.
Peters is a gutless bi tch just like all the rest of the sabres. The hit on Drury was completely clean and it was great to see Neil rail him. Also, Adam Mair is lucky Spezza is too smart to get into that crap or else Jason would have knocked the s hit out of him.
Not a far matchup, Peters should not have been there but Emery held his own, a goalie with all that equipment agianst a player totaly uncalled for...Peters got what he deserved from McGrattin
It was hardly a fight. There were only two half-decent punches even landed; Emery got a decent one in on a bent-over Peters just before the refs stepped in, and Peters had a body-shot earlier (which probably shouldn't count, given the mammoth equipment a goalie wears. Peters almost landed a good shot to Emery's face right before Emery hit him (though the second camera shows there was no contact). Other than that, Peters and Emery were only able to hit each other's shoulder pads as they tried to swing for the fences, er, faces... I'd love to see another round between the two. Peters has a weight advantage, but Emery's the better athlete.
Peters is a gutless puke.
the sabres are a mirror image of ruff and the way he played, cheap shot divers, brave at home, gutless worms on the road. Carolina exposed them last year in the playoffs, body checked them to death. Sabres never won anything, will not do it this year either.
Golden gloves boxer Emery?He suks
bottom line was, the hit was cheap and everything thereafter was fair and the right thing to do... until the peters-emery fight. it wasn't his place to step in. no player ever has a right to go after the other team's goalie, even if their own goalie is at ends with him, unless the opposing goalie is going completely crazy and brutally attacking some innocent player. it wasnt peter's place to get involved there, though the rest of it was all good. but sen's fans, stop saying the hit was clean - it wasn't. (fyi, i'm not a sabre or sens fan)
Hey its me again AND FOR Craig_098 THE puck was off DREWS styick for 5 seconds u only get fuckin 2 secondsTO HIT HIM u dumb SHIT ur coach is a dumbass who would sends spezza out after neil throws a fuckin cheapshot AND PETERS WENT AFTER A VULNERABLE TIRED EMERY WHAT THE FUCK DO YOUTHING NEIL DID DUMBASS GO TO HELL FU CRAIG_98 AND BJORNSON MCGRATTONNS COMING WOA MCGRATTON GOT HIS ASS KICKED BY PETERS SIX FUCKEN TIMES BRING URDAMN GOON ASSHOLE AND RYAN9497 EMERY THINKS HES A COL BOXER PETERS WOULD KICK HIS ASS AND THANK U WINGNUT42 THESE SENS FANS ARE DUMB SHITS MRUNOHOO PETERS ISANT GETTIN SUSPENDED DUMBASS WHERE DID YOU GET THAT STUPID AND THECOYAOTES SUCK!!!!!!!!!! maDLEE PETERS JUST GOT DOWN FIGHTING 2 ASS AND EMERYS FIGHT WAS 2 SECONDS NOW ANY U ASS HOLES GOT SHIT 2 SAY MY EMAIL ADRESS IS [email protected] HATS ALSO MY iNSTANT MESSAGE SO TALK TO ME SO I CAN CLEAN UP UR SHIT FILLED BRAINS
Ray Emery was smiling the whole way thgough
Peters is a chump! for being a tough guy and taking on a goalie who just fought and is wearing pads.. that's bunk. To be honest he should have done better. What time is saturday's game :)?
Mair taking on 3 sens at once, Peters whooping emery, what more could you ask for? Oh yeah, spezza literally running away from a fight, can't forget that. Only thing more that I could have asked for would be Ruff beating the crap out of Murray for him running his mouth. Murray can't seriously be that stupid that he didn't see a fight coming . . . I can only hope that Peters doesn't take it easy on McGrattan next time, he could have ended his career last time but he showed some class by letting him off easy. and for the sens fans crying about Peters going after emery, watch how many sens jump on Mair after he goes after spezza, cant hold anything against Peters when twice as many sens are guilty of the same. You are just raging because Peters + Mair > sens
Peters lost my respect for going after a goalie, and after the two goalies already had a fight. What a puss. He was just trying to find someone who he knew he could beat up. Sens should have gone after him and stopped it. In that regard they suck. The hit was late, but clean. Bad hit in my opinion because i like Drury. I think he is a good guy and player. I cant wait until Sat., I just hope Bettman doesnt threaten the teams and the game suffers.
Yea, Yea. Blah Blah. Peters this Mcgratton that! They both suck! Sens suck, Sabres suck!!! NASHVILLE PREDATORS KICK ASS!
bad call on ruff. He should not have dont that, bad call, uncalled for peters to do what he did. Yeah sure its exciting but holy shit... no need for a god damn goalie fight how the hell did that start
How long has it been since Neil has actually fought a tough guy? Give me a break! Murray is spineless and gutless and has been most of his coaching career! Peters has owned McGratton and will again. As for Emrey..... his scraps are always against smaller guys, I promise you that if Steve Shields was still in Buffalo Emery would be out for a while with missing teeth!
U Gtta Be Fuckin Kiddin Me..
Peters is the biggest piece of garbage in the league. F#cking ogie ogelthorpe crap. Skaters going after goalies is freaking ridiculous. Won't be a rematch because Peters will be suspended. Put them in a ring Emery would kick his ass. Sabres fans suck.
Peters is a cheap f$&@ for stepping in there on Emery. Biron and Emery were going towards each other to go another round If Emery had the same equipment on as Peters it would be a very close fight. Emery fought quite a bit in the minors and has done some boxing in the past. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZzyOBhk5Uw here's another fight of Emery's against a skater I'm quite excited to see McGratton come back on saturday Ruff is a douchebag and should be dealt with by the league. For all you sabres fans what would you think of mcgrattan if after emery and biron went at it mcgrattan stepped in and went at biron???? The 2 goalies going at it was as fair as a fight gets but Peters is a joke How can you say Murray started it????????????? Chris Neil has been playing on the first line for the last 4 games. He plays a regular shift every night. HE LEADS THE NHL IN HITS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For him to go out there and hit a star player or ANY player for that matter HAPPENS EVERY BLOODY GAME. Watch the replay, it's a completely clean hit, just because Drury didn't see him coming doesn't mean it was a cheap hit.
It is a joke that Peters went after Emery. Peters hs NO SKILLS and now has to beat up on a goalie. I hope McGratton Kicks the hell out of him on Saturday night.
Peters, gutless turd, comes in and fights Emery after Emery already fought. Love Emery smiling through the whole thing.
