fkn zebras, they're the biggest threat out there these days. assistant ref schampoo should be suspended 25 games - intent to injure/blow to the head. make an example of him! bloody disgrace.

good job linesmen, you should be real proud of yourselves, real class acts. They let a guy get his spine fused to the boards, but won't let his buddy take revenge. I forked over $80 bucks to see this snoozefest and they stopped the only thing worth watching!! alright, i lied, i watched it on tv, but still!!!

Posted by mckendo83 on November 07, 2007 at 01:25 PM

that was horseshit.... i'm goin with DRAW, you don't get a win for a three on one punch

Posted by toytiger on November 07, 2007 at 09:48 AM

couldn't care less about either team, and i'm also going to call it a draw out of spite. stupid officials need to stay out of the way...the result of this "fight" is completely their fault.

Posted by NotoriousT on November 07, 2007 at 03:39 PM

That Is Some F***ed Up $hit. Takes Some Real Retards To Jump In And Grab A Guy When Hes Tryna Go To The Aid Of His Player, And It Takes An Even Bigger Pussy 2 Through A Punch When The Guys Getting Held. Gave This A Draw And A 1 For Crap Fight. Nice Fight Linesman

Posted by cabsf15e on November 07, 2007 at 05:20 PM

Draw at can anyone give the nod to a gutless coward like Tarnasky...that's something like only Sean Avery would do!! First of all, he should get suspended for the cheap-shot hit from behind that he put on Mike VanRyn...that was a dangerous hit from behind, a potential career ending type of hit!! Where has the honor and respect for the players and the game gone to?? The NHL doesn't need PUNK's like Tarnasky trolling the ice, taking blatant cheap shots on real hockey players!! The sucker punch Tarnasky threw at Allen with the two linesmen holding him back is completely inexcusable, mostly on Tarnasky's part, but also the linesmen were irresponsible in making Allen so vulnerable!! Brian Allen is an excellent hockey player with honor and courage, unlike Tarnasky, and I hope he gets the chance to exact his revenge on that gutless coward!! Colin Campbell better throw the book at Tarnasky with a 25 game suspension for that cowardly act!!

This was not a fight. The Ref should receive a game miscounduct for the third man in. What a moron. no winner

Posted by tristan16 on November 07, 2007 at 02:26 PM

Here is where things will later get out control....its those referees getting into the action too soon.. I guarantee that Tarnasky will get his ass kicked with cheap shots on it own.

Posted by mcgillion1981 on November 07, 2007 at 03:21 PM

What a cheap shot. You don't wack a guy in the face when your opponent can't defend himself. That guy broke the tough guy code for sure.

Posted by ufclover on November 07, 2007 at 03:06 PM

it was a fucking bullshit fight,tarnasky is a stupid pussy and the refs are a bunch of fucking just pisses me off so much seeing this,allen was helpless

Posted by devils14 on November 07, 2007 at 04:29 PM

Why didn't the zebra's let them go!? props to allen sticking up for the teammate

Posted by puterfreek on November 08, 2007 at 12:52 PM

What a load of crap. Stupid refs needed to back off and let them go at it. Ref interference in the fights is what causes injuries...Allen had no way to defend himself with his arms being held. Sheez.

Posted by shrk33 on November 08, 2007 at 02:37 AM

draw because the punch was with the officials trying to break it up. Just let them go

Linesman screw this up by holding on to Allen. Tarnasky takes advantage while showing he has zero class or courage. No room in the NHL for this kind of stuff.

Posted by zmuda44 on November 08, 2007 at 08:24 AM

First of all, let me say this. Keith Jones mentioned this same thing right here the other day on vs. so for a commentator to have to mention it, it must be a problem in the league. These linesman are jumping in on fights way too early, and it's dangerous for them and obviously dangerous for the fighters. I personally don't care what happens to the linesman when they decide to jump in too early, but it's ashame when a player can't protect himself from taking punches just because a linesman is determined there will be no fights in his game. Secondly, I voted Bryan Allen as the winner of this fight just so it doesn't go down on this website that Tarnasky beat him. That was a flat out sucker punch.

Posted by RYouMental on November 08, 2007 at 11:19 AM

Cheap cheap cheap cheap cheap!

Posted by puckluck on November 07, 2007 at 01:33 PM

I can't stand Tarnasky. He's always tough when playing the Panthers knowing they got no enforcers and no fighters. The Lighting can't win a single game on the road so they are just a frustrated bunch! Let him try that s**t on Boogard or LaRaque....He'll get dropped so bad, he'll never start a fight again! What a softy...Be a man!

Posted by UhateMOFOhateU on November 08, 2007 at 04:15 PM

wow tarnasky is a bitch

Posted by dibari_22 on November 07, 2007 at 05:07 AM

WOW. dirty, cheap, punch from Tarnasky... but helluva KO. Yipes !!! Allen got KTFO!

Posted by unvy on November 08, 2007 at 09:00 AM

This was a non fight. Tarnasky threw a cheap one. The linesman got Allen drilled. Stay out!

Posted by powpow on November 08, 2007 at 11:19 AM

Thats why the Zebras need to get the F%ck out of the way when guys are going to go. Someone could get badly hurt with those idiots holding arms and blocking views...Send the memo Colin Campbell.

Posted by The Peach on November 08, 2007 at 12:32 PM

for attitude adjustment purposes, they should put tarnasky and boulerice in a locked room for 10 minutes with laraque, orr and godard

Posted by john-ben on November 07, 2007 at 12:48 PM

suc... punch

Posted by joe616161 on November 07, 2007 at 10:37 AM

F****ng cheap from Tarnasky!

Posted by yatyas on November 07, 2007 at 03:16 PM

The linesmen caused that injury need to let them fight, that's why they need to get the F out of the way!!! Cheap shot by Tarnasky BTW!

Posted by SCOTTSO on November 08, 2007 at 09:11 AM


Posted by stizzo on December 20, 2007 at 12:11 PM

tarnasky = punk ass real tough guy to throw a punch when refs are holding the other guy - he'll get his - watch the next time someone drops the gloves with him, payback

Posted by djaye on November 07, 2007 at 04:53 PM

Linesmen dominated this one. I ook for paybacks tonight in the rematch game.

Posted by mikebflorida on November 07, 2007 at 09:40 AM

A double dinger on this play for Tarnasky. The hit didn't look all that dirty, he looked like he was finishing a check but Van Ryn fell awkwardly into the boards. Stupid linesmen are in the way during the square off and Nick ko's Allen while both are being held. Keep in mind, this is also pay back for Allen going after Prospal much earlier in the game after an accidental boarding by Prospal who is NOT a dirty player. Couldn't happen to a nicer team, stinkin Panthers.

Posted by pharroch on November 07, 2007 at 03:19 PM

Big time sucker punch...players shouldn't punch when refs are holding. A real tough guy wouldn't do that.

Posted by bigty on November 08, 2007 at 11:31 AM

I love how the panther announcers say Tarnasky goes after Allen, when it was Allen who instigated the fight.

Posted by dcmac on November 07, 2007 at 07:20 PM

one must protect oneself at all times. a cheap shot is a cheap shot

Posted by Sukoshi84 on November 08, 2007 at 05:20 PM

hahaha gotta love tarno nice cross ..........refs need to stop jumping in early if both guys got the mits dropped let em go

Posted by dave25 on November 08, 2007 at 10:21 PM

Refs blew it twice once on the boarding major and once when both players dropped the gloves but they dont let the boys go and allen gets popped because of it. I don't blame tarnasky- they both wanted to go so let em go refs

Posted by grouse grinder on November 10, 2007 at 01:37 AM

Happened quick with Allen coming for Tarnasky and as they go to lock horns the refs roll in to stop them, one guy gets a free hand and that guy was Tarnasky. Could have easily been Allen who got free and in that 5 seconds popped Tarns. Nothing cheap here at all, guns ablazing fight with a clear winner. Allen fights smaller guys and hides behind refs otherwise a lot. Tarnasky wades in with anyone anytime, takes his odd licking in style without crying. All you Allen mama boys, go give poor Allen a big hug and say "there there, you poor boy that big mean old Nick Tarnasky hit you first, how dare him"...waaawaaaawaaaa!

Posted by Jrf1301 on December 09, 2007 at 03:31 PM

What a punch. who would vote for Allen win he got KOed with one punch

Posted by Krahn on November 08, 2007 at 12:52 AM

Cheap shot!!! Tarnasky needs another beat-down from Lucic for that! draw, cant vote for a garbage play like that!

Posted by crazybubs on November 07, 2007 at 08:43 PM

I voted draw as there isn't a linesman option.

Posted by blackngold on November 07, 2007 at 09:52 PM

why the fuk didn't the refs let them go?

Posted by puffdaddybruins on November 07, 2007 at 01:49 PM

What a piece of shit that Tarnasky is for sucker punching him as he is being help. F you Tarnasky.

Posted by Wolf_eyes on November 07, 2007 at 02:28 PM

that qualifies as a fight? More like a single cheap shot......

Posted by TheSchwab on November 07, 2007 at 11:07 AM

Crap fight, good game refs.

Posted by chelios247 on November 07, 2007 at 11:46 AM

I was at this game and it seemed to me that Allen initiates the fight. for some reason the linesmen tried to prevent it from hapening and the result is Allen getting bombed. there are two faults here 1 for the linesmen breaking tring to break up a scrap and Tarnasky for punching a defensless player.

Posted by 5minmajor22 on November 08, 2007 at 09:44 AM

Garbage job by a garbage player, Tarnasky is gutless, two ultra cheap shots, his suspension should be severe......and cripes, please Mr Linesman, let the players fight....... righteous job by Allen sticking up for his teammate
