Only in the NHL can an all-star d-man like Mike Green get laid out with a cheap hit by a journeyman club fighter who skates two minutes a game. Kudos to Erskine for taking on Koci but once the jersey got pulled over his head the fight was over.
I hate that!!!!I always like to see the cheap shot guy get smoked....Not last KNIGHT
Bad KNIGHT for X KNIGHTS!!!!
Back in my day SHIRTING a guy was part of hockey fighting strategy so don't get shirted or your gonna get worked!!!!!!!! the guys keep throwin while being shirted so why should he stop????Koci is still a bum!!!!
Green didn't turn his back-appeared to be a matter of reasonable positioning, to me, while making the pass . Cheap hit. Green's fortunate not to have, apparently, sustained any serious injury. I like Erskine-too bad he lost.
firstly,green is on cruise controll with a 5-0 lead, secondley, he sees koci coming, then he turns his back on him, also the hit is mostly to the shoulder, as far as koci * having to answer for it* i,d say he did that. i'm not a fan of either of these teams (especially the av's) but i'm tired of star treatment for certain players, weather its' you can't touch them, or they get to cheap shot others at will , I.E. dion phanuf. while the "goons" are held under a freaking microscope for anything they do. i'm sure c*ntface colon campell will thow the book at koci, just so he can show the espn & foxsports dopes that the nhl is "cracking down on violence" weeeelll f*ck colon campell , and for that matter f*ck his dwarf ish-uber-scumbag NBA f*cking boss gary buttman too!
koci is a meathead, but that hit didn't look too bad. we used to lay each other out like that in practice all the time, jeez. fact is, koci is a huge guy and if he pops you, it will hurt. for a minute, then it's back to hockey. as for the fight, erskine is a good teammate and he will always show up, but he isn't much of a heavyweight NHL scrapper, and certainly no match for koci most nights.
