Gotta give Neil credit for manning up, but once Godard got that right elbow pad off...I counted at least 6 unanswered power rights.
Neil did manage to smile his way out of any further pummelling at the end, as the champ eventually let him off the hook.
Don Cherry showed this fight at the end of HNIC and had tremendous praise for both combatants. Neil doesn't back down from anybody and Godard is one of the two or three best fighters in the NHL this season.
Godard but not by too much. I like the announces was shocked that Neil went. Neil usually hits someone from behind like a scumbag and runs away wetting himself unless he feels he has an obvious fight win.
Great fight. Those last 4 rights by Godard definitely get him the win in this one and Chris Neil did much better than expected. He's a tough kid, probably used to getting beat up by his friends and family as a kid. lol
