average fight, Upshall wouldn't try that crap with Laraque from Pitt or even Roberts. He knows he'd get his ass handed to him just like Egger did. The big punch in this fight looked like it sorta missed and Green more or less slipped. He definetly hopped right back up so obviously it didn't connect !! I give the fight to Upshall but it wasn't very impresssive just like most Philthadelphia fights. If the flyers win this series thats as far as their getting.
It's the playoffs,you have to pick your spots,Green can't take himself off the ice for 7 mins. in the 3rd,slight edge Upshall for last punch.
Hey original Behn,AHL intellectualism,that's a low blow,don't quite get the 'puppy' thing either,just took the name and number of my all-time fav. Flyer,i'll save being a 'whiner" just for the Pens,its a PA. thing,after all Paul Baxter did sucker punch Behn in '81.
Yes, green was off-balance before the Upshall hit, but it was Upshall twisting him (and Green swinging wildly and missing that put him off balance). Upshall wins for 2 reasons:
1. He landed the only punch that wasn't to someone's helmet
2. This took Green off the ice for 5 minutes at the start of the 3rd with the Flyers up 2 goals.
