Downey, one of the circuits lesser enforcers gets the "W" in a fight with big Kyle Mclaren whose always done well when he drops them. Mclaren threw 2 dangerous looking haymakers but Downey landed well and won the fight. Good to see a big blueliner drop them.............like the not so old days.
Nice fight right there. The announcer had said Downey landed a good first shot before the camera panned over. So by that time Mclaren started throwing some pretty good shots. That left that Downey connected looked pretty powerful. McLaren just didn't look like he was inflicting much damage. Where as Downey seamed to throw some hard shots. And if the refs weren't there to break it up. Downey probably could have continued to reign down shots. Good fight. But I give the "W" to Downey here. Maybe some of the Wings fans here will finally stop complaining about no fights. When we have had several already, only 8 games in.
I was at the game and was a nice scrap. I'm sur Downey was answering the call for a hit that McLaren gave on Drake earlier in the game. McLaren started off well, but Downey pulls through in the end by a nose.
I am very concerned about Downey and Drake getting severely injured. They are valiant warriors but are too small. The Red Wing Organization has no decency since Probert and Kocur were their to protect their teammates. Buy the way Downey edged out his bigger foe.
This was a good fight. but you really need to include the check McLaren landed on Drake to understand what was happening.
If you're counting the winner as the guy who lands on top, sure, Downy was the winner. But both guys landed good shots. Downy ends up whipping McLaren around and that's when McLaren goes down. Not by a punch.
