Clearly, Stortini was reacting to the hit from behind that Carkner laid on one of the Oilers. I think Laurel and Hardy should have mentioned this while announcing the scrap. Carkner won the short battle, but I think Stortini should be given credit for sticking up for a teamate.
Not as lopsided as the announcers made it out to be but deffinately a win for Carkner who was in a fight before he even knew it. "Stortini with only 13 fighting majors this season"....thats quite a few. I think Stortini would be easier to look at if he had his AVATAR glasses on too
Brokenleg is is now? I am an oil fan unfortunately...but you and your alter ego MCB still crack me up. Would love to try and share a beer with both of you, during your intelivision sea battle intermission, while your moms(70 odd years old) serve us snacks in their basement. Keep up the good work...make mom and dad(mailman) proud, Love your form boys!
heres the real series of events leading up to this fight
whistle blew, Stortini gets into it with Ruutu, teams meet up around them, Comrie shoves with Volchenkov, Phillips comes in late, senators change, Carkner goes out FRESH, pucks dropped, Carkner shoves Potulny down in the corner, Stortini drops them...good energy to start, each land a few punches, Carkner gets the upperhand a bit, Stortini's turning the tables, Carkner wrestles him to the ice...close scrap, draw
make believe? so what? you're saying that the scrum never happened...? mmmmm i was watching and it did....besides even if im wrong about Carkner coming on fresh , Stortini was still out there before that
