I was at the game. It was a staged fight, Sestito threw snow in Pekka Rinne's face and Tootoo was sticking up for him. Fight after faceoff. Punches thrown early, Sestito landed a few, Tootoo closed in for the kill and laid a couple on him. Sestito lost his balance, Tootoo pressed foward, it looked Ses was afraid of Toots. I was at the Preds golf outing and asked Belak if he would ever fight Toots, he said no way, he is way too tough for his size. Anyway, Ses backed up and Toots fell on top of him, he hits his head on the ice and had to be helped off by 4 other teammates.
ok ,look close, right be for they go down tom tries to grab hold of tootoo as tootoo moves in throwing an uppercut . the momentum of tootoo moving in , throwing punches and tom pulling tootoo in is what knocked tom off balance causing tom to hit his head and go unconscious. most of toms punches didn't land or hit pads, tootoo punches were more accurate and were harder win for tootoo. looked like tom wanted to stop.
Sestito fell to the ice unconscious. There is some debate as to whether he was out before he hit the ice or whether he hit the back of his head on the ice for the KO. It was mostly an even fight until Tootoo got inside on him and landed some solid shots. Sestito stayed down unconscious. The stretcher was brought out, but fortunately Sestito finally got up with assistance from two of his teammates. There was blood on the ice from where his head hit.
Draw? Are you kidding? It seems to me if you are the one that got KO'd and taken to the hospital, then you didn't win the fight. The reason his head hit the ice is because Tootoo drove his fist into Sesito's face on the way down. So other than getting KO'd and taken of the ice in shame, he did great!
