Another clean check starts a fight. If Hordichuk didn't like the hit, isn't he capable of doing something without O'Brien jumping in? I guess O'Brien still believes his boss told him to fight more often, regardless of what was really said. O'Brien with the rabbit punches for the win.
Zeiler actually tried to hide in O'Brien's jersey!!! The rarely used jersey-bottom grab, as opposed to the shoulder or elbow grab, rarely ends well. Who voted for Zeiler in this one??? Let me guess...brymaster1.
I can't say that I like the fights after a clean hit either but then again, I'm on this site because I like fights period. I just don't think guys should HAVE to fight just because they throw a good clean hit. In saying that, I think that O'brien challenged Zeiler because it was O'brien who gave Hordi that suicide pass that got him hammered in the first place. Easy win for O'brien. Pretty safe to say that Zeiler was overmatched. I think that Zeiler has the wrong jersey on. He should have one of those ugly Flaming C jerseys on, that the Calgirlsarehairy Flamers wear, since they can't win a fight either. Actually that's not entirely true, I heard that one of the Flamers might have earned a draw against a Swedish girls bantam house league team in the preseason.
Give Zeiler credit, challenged by the much bigger O'Brien. How long do the linesman have to stand on the side as O'B continued to reign punch after punch to Zeiler's backside? Thank God Zeiler went to the ice as O'B was have pummeled him.
