Who lands on top, who gets the last shot in, who gets cut ... those are for drunk fans and silly play-by-play guys to get excited over . These are only minor factors into deciding who wins the fight. Both guys had good moments in this fight. This is clearly a draw, to me. Most hockey fights are.
A cut is a cut...Eager WENT DOWN...he was ducking and covering when he hit the ice. he was done. Think about it. if you're fighting someone and they pull you off him before any more damage is done, though you got a little scratch on your cheek...who won? You have mental problems if you think this is a draw or even give Eager the win.
Lucic can take a punch and still deal out the punishment. This kid is a great player and has the toughness to survive in this league. I have to give the edge to Lucic. Even though he was cut, he still kept at it.
Spirited bout, Lucic was the stronger of the two and got the take down. Eager was throwing some punches with bad intentions, Lucic was lucky that last one didn't land. Can't wait for the rematch. Good bout
