Josh honours the "code" and gives Koci a rematch. Josh can take a punch and keep on ticking. Take the time to watch the punches he is still throwing "blind" with his jersey over his head. Lucky for the linesmen at the end or Koci would have received his 2nd defeat of the night. Much better showing for Koci this time though.
Great bout. Heck of a first game for Koci! Takes on Gratton, a well established fighter in the NHL, TWICE in the first period! Then knocks out Thomas with a great, perfectly legal hit and stands up to Boynton. Way to make an impression!
On my part, I think it's great old time hockey! Back to the roots, get out there and mix it up. And it clearly had a positive effect on the Blackhawks.
Once again, Koci's lack of balance ended the fight. However, this time he had pretty much exhausted himself by the end wailing on Gratton's (mostly sweater-covered) melon. Gratton certainly threw and landed a few bombs, and it appears that Koci can take a hit or two. Koci the clear winner.
