Give me a break. Gagner saw Volchenkov coming and he turned his back to him. Then he jumps Volchenkov when he's not even ready for it. Flyers fans just don't like it when this crap happens to them.

Posted by battleship bob on March 24, 2010 at 11:50 AM

not much to see here. A little bit of roughing. LOL at Richards and Carcillo giving the Sens the 4 on 2 for the goal - good stuff. BTW, mmaz24 ever think of getting help with your obvious fixation on SIDNEY Crosby? Grow up, make your points (if you can) without drawing upon your hatred from a player totally unrelated to this incident.

Posted by hatterson on March 24, 2010 at 03:46 PM

I'm calling it a draw. There wasn't actually a fight since Volchenkov didn't get a fighting penalty.

Posted by Frankie jr on March 23, 2010 at 11:20 PM

Gagne won the fight.

Posted by crosscheck52 on March 24, 2010 at 08:05 AM

Bad non-call by the refs. Gagne lost it. Give him a "hockeyfights" win, but there wasn't a fight.

Posted by Doogle on March 24, 2010 at 08:55 PM

What fight??? As usual one of the cryers show everybody good sportsmanship. He jumps a guy and then throws punches at guy who is down. Way to go! Look how tough you are! Is anybody really surprised though? That's what the cryers are know for. "Broad street bullies?" It should be the "Broad street goonies" ANYBODY who thinks this hit is dirty is a MORON. Gagne knew Volchenkov was going to hit him and turned away! Why would ANYBODY put themselves in danger like that??? If cryer fans can't see that what Gagne did put himself in harms way, it just shows you the education level out there. To mmaz24, nobody has to worry about Crosby getting hit like that because he never puts himself in a dangerous situation like that. How can ANYBODY vote for Gagne? First of all, Gagne jumps him. Second, Gagne tackles him to the ice. Third, Gagne starts swinging while Volchenkov is STILL on the ice and Fourth, ALL Gagne's punches hits Volchenkov in his shoulder pads! I agree with "stone169", cryer fans don't like it when stuff happens to them and as we all can see, can't take it either. Draw

It's amazing how some of the tools on here who claim knowledge of the sport accuse Gagne of "turning into" the hit from behind. He is facing the pass, and turns his body to shoot it up the ice. I'd like to know how you alleged "hockey guys" get any power behind the puck without torquing your shoulders. You sound like a bunch of limp-wristed floor hockey players... Volchenkov was jumped unfairly? He was facing Gagne, who skated straight at him, and he knew what he did. If he thought Gagne was coming to talk about the nightlife in Ottawa, he's even dumber than some of the posters on this site. That being said...Gagne didn't land one call it a draw...

Posted by Rantavahti on March 24, 2010 at 11:48 AM

Someone should've jump on Volchenkov instead of standing by him and giving Sens a four on two attack(?!). That would've given this play a fair end...horrible refereeing though Gagne was stupid to give his back to defender.

Posted by QUIGGS22 on March 24, 2010 at 01:13 PM

Gagne with the clear win,,at least somebody on the Flyers is showing signs of life !

Posted by mmaz24 on March 24, 2010 at 11:27 AM

That hit would be the training video for boarding or hitting from behind. Gagne took the pass and deflected it forward with his face to the boards. Getting drilled like that is what should be eliminated from the game. If it happened to Cindy Crosby the NHL would have taken Volchenkov's left testicle, first born child and suspended him for a year.

Posted by dukeofearle on March 24, 2010 at 11:40 AM

Gangs turned his back at the last possible second, everyone in the league knows Volchenkov finishes his hits, I mean what is Volchenkov supposed to do, Gange saw him coming and turned. Then instead of doing something, Richards and Carcillo have a chat with Volchenkov that creates a 4 on 2.

Posted by toytiger on March 24, 2010 at 08:49 PM

Good thing Volchenkov you don;t play inthe OHL with the knobs that run that league they would ban you for life hell hitting is a dying art sadly

Posted by Bigford83 on March 23, 2010 at 10:38 PM

In one sudden moment of anger and frustration, Gags got me 19 PIM for my fantasy team. Thanks dude!

Posted by dave_brown on March 24, 2010 at 08:20 PM

Not really a fight, Gagne just lost it. Bruiseyoureye, dude seriously get a life. Does making stupid comments on this site arouse you in some way? Thats the only thing I can think of. Get out a bit, I promise you there has to be at least one girl that might look at you. That way you can get your rocks off some other way than coming on here making stupid posts.

Posted by Mug Jitsu on March 25, 2010 at 04:31 PM

Terrible reffing in this game. All should be fired.

Posted by NotoriousT on March 24, 2010 at 02:44 AM

I wish Carcillo would have given him a dirty f***in licken for that hit. I agree with Towmater whats the difference between that hit and Ovechkins? The thing that pisses me off the most is that they got a goal out of this and Gagne received all the penalties

Posted by T800m101 on March 24, 2010 at 03:32 PM

Gagne pounds Volchenkov to the ice.

Posted by BooSanta on March 24, 2010 at 10:50 PM

Gags has a history of concussions from similar hits. volchenkov knows it so he's gone to finsh his hit. Gags tried to turn and dodge it but was too late, never the less, a no call is a no call so Gags had to give the business to Volchenkov. It was smart of Volchenkov to get away with the cheapshot and not drop his gloves to fend off Gags tantrum. It cost the Flyers the game as they had 7 minutes to kill. This was a battle win for Gags and a strategic win for the senators. Gags is wearing a flyer uniform so there is no way Flyer hater Colin Campbell will discipline this hit. The folks in Toronto were probably looking for some retribution from the Richards on Booth hit they've been talking about all year

Posted by bluesrule08 on March 26, 2010 at 01:45 PM

how the hell does volchenkov receive any votes??? are you people retarded?!?!! must either be loser senators fans or people that are just goofing off. i thought there should have been a boarding call.

Posted by Towmater on March 23, 2010 at 11:49 PM

Gagne mugs Vulva-chenkov after a ugly, dirty hit. Not much difference between that hit and the one that Oveckin got suspended for.

Posted by bruins rule on March 24, 2010 at 07:46 AM

gagne with the win.

Posted by redwings4life on March 24, 2010 at 03:56 PM

bruiseyoureye........ you must be a sens fan, dirty hits all game by the sens, the philly can be a dirty team but not that game it was all the sens who were dirty, open yr eyes, he hit him from behind, and Karlsson is a pussy to.

Posted by metz87 on March 24, 2010 at 09:31 PM

Ihought fights needed two people?.Anyways since the only guy actually fightning here is Gange you have to give him the win.

Posted by Se7en on March 24, 2010 at 11:08 PM

I'm sorry, if anyone else threw that hit on Gagne it would be considered boarding. Then you throw a goal in there I'm suprised the coach didnt start throwing water coolers and sticks out on the ice. Volch should be suspended for that hit but probably wont.

Posted by Behn Wilson on March 25, 2010 at 01:13 AM

Two minutes for turning your back on an ''obvious'' incoming hit. Carcillo and Richards should have both recieved assists on the subsequent 4 on 2 goal.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on March 24, 2010 at 02:54 PM

Dangerous hit by Volchenkov. Glad to see Gagne get his own payback intstead off Carcillos trash ass jumping in.

Posted by flyerguy on March 24, 2010 at 10:06 AM

Gagne defended himself, good job. Officials sucked! ANY MORON that voted for Volchenkov should be banned from ever psting again. Seriously, some people in here are total tools!

Posted by staceyb on March 24, 2010 at 04:57 AM

Why do they bother having two refs instead of one if they let Volchenkov get away with that dangerous hit on Gagne into the boards that led to the Ottawa goal? Terrible officiating!

Posted by kurri17 on March 23, 2010 at 09:45 PM

Gagne unleashed the beast!

Posted by acd1 on March 24, 2010 at 09:02 PM

Win Gagne

Posted by SABREHATRED on March 24, 2010 at 09:16 PM

Volchenkov gets mugged like a innocent old lady, whose car broke down and is walking on the filthy, downtrodden streets of buffalo!

Posted by PENGUINSCUP09 on March 24, 2010 at 12:58 AM

SIDESHOW CARCILLO should have taken care of it

Posted by roznizzle on March 25, 2010 at 12:48 PM

i was happy to see gagne stand up for himself. someone should have decked Volchenkov sooner so the goal wasn't scored. the refs that game must be on the senators' payroll.

Posted by Frustration on March 23, 2010 at 11:47 PM

An obvious win for Gagne. Was happy to see someone go after him after he got away with 2 horrible hits on Carcillo and Gagne. I was very suprised that it was Gagne that did it though (especially considering Carcillo was on the ice as well).

Posted by chrisuko on March 24, 2010 at 12:13 AM

screw volchenkov, he takes a dirty hit on gagne that wasnt called (the refs are blind not to see that, it has to be boarding or roughing). the asshole volchenkov is was scared to fight carcillo, so gagne got up and took out frustration by himself. im glad he did. he had volchenkshit on his knees begging for mommy

Posted by hockey450 on March 24, 2010 at 02:29 PM

gagne win, cheapshot, Volchenkov deserved what he got.

Posted by jbaktai on March 24, 2010 at 08:28 AM

Volchenkov has been doing this cheap hit shit for years, first dirty elbow on carcillo in the 2nd i think it was now this hit from behind on a star player. Carcillo shoulda decked him after the hit thats his job and hes not doing it right. Honestly i cant wait to see someone wreck this c unt (volchenkov) from behind cause what goes around comes around. Sens have been a dirty team for a decade atleast. Ever since hossa took out berard's eye i've had no respect for them. Everyone calls philly a team of cheap shot artists take a long look at ott over the past decade. I'm from Toronto so i get to see plenty of the sens i know them and their style.

Posted by shawnfightlover on March 24, 2010 at 01:29 PM

simon gagne let his anger out W for gagne

Posted by ReconDude on March 29, 2010 at 04:00 PM

that was a pussy hit by volchenkov.. he even looked back to see if the ref called anything and he raised his hands up like he didnt do anything.. Gagne's head clearly hit the boards, he could've broke his neck. Volchenkov shoulda got 5 minutes for intent to injure

Posted by bruiseyoureye on March 24, 2010 at 12:03 PM

great hit by volchenkov!.........then volchenkov destroyed that puszy flyer..........all the flyers are wussies.......flyers are cheapshot punks.

Posted by kronvallizer78 on March 24, 2010 at 10:08 AM

WOW the hit was clearly offensive and dangerous give Gagne props for trying to stand up for himself, but if you wanna fight take the Shltty visor off d0uche!!!! Volchenkov with the win because of Gagne`s moronic tantrum

Posted by PitbullX on March 24, 2010 at 04:29 AM

Great moves by the Flyers to give up on the play and allow Ottawa to take 2 points from them. Wait for the whistle, THEN get your guy. Did Carcillo think he would drop the gloves with him?

Posted by chad420 on March 24, 2010 at 10:36 PM

2 for roughing.. a no- its a draw

Posted by NashRedWing on March 24, 2010 at 12:17 PM

This wasn't even a fight. Volchenkov was celebrating the goal and was attacked. Gagne was pretty cowardly there.

Posted by Jabin on March 24, 2010 at 12:46 AM

WTF not one swing landed, Its a Draw. CAT FIGHT looks to me.

Posted by Silk54 on March 24, 2010 at 08:18 AM

I have no idea how anyone with even a marginal knowledge of the sport can criticize Volchenkov, he went in for the big hit and at the last second Gagne turns his back. The rule about hitting from behind is there to protect players not to allow them a way to avoid taking a hit or drawing a penalty. Complete garbage.

Posted by Wings_19 on March 24, 2010 at 03:01 AM

Not really a fight so gotta give it a draw. I love Pronger on the side holding up two Sens with ease

Posted by swany65 on March 24, 2010 at 11:28 AM

this site should just get rid of the voting but allow the comments. Something like this play is a prime example. Not really a fight, but because it's here you still have to vote. The sens guy didn't even throw a punch but people vote him for a win because he was jumped. I actually enjoy reading the idiotic comments though, including my own...

Posted by piney on March 28, 2010 at 12:58 AM

I'm NOT a Flyers fan....there should have been a call

Posted by BritishRedWing on March 25, 2010 at 01:25 PM

Man, that hit did not warrant a surprise attack. Gagne should have been a gentleman and issued a challenge, removed his visor, and then proceeded to fight. Technically he "won" the so-called fight, but that was ugly.

Posted by kari takko on March 24, 2010 at 12:23 AM

not a fight. gagne threw but it takes two. give gagne the win i guess.

Posted by gmr133 on March 24, 2010 at 11:46 AM

I hate the Flyers and I'm always happy to see one of those guys get nailed, but Gagne has a point here. Clearly a boarding penalty by Volchenkov, which two refs are looking at but neither calls. Gagne decides to take matters into his own hands. Good for him. Too bad he couldn't have pounded Volchenkov worse.

Posted by hockeyfan217 on March 24, 2010 at 03:50 AM

not really a fight as much as it is a seriously pissed off Gagne deciding to punish Volchenkov himself, since he easily got away with a boarding penalty

Posted by bigdog2007 on March 24, 2010 at 11:33 AM

So many little time. Gagne see him coming and turns his back. Idiot.Gagne's fault 100%. Visor wearing douche. Flyer fans are a miliimetre above Leafs fans on the moron scale. Carcillo is a weasel dicklicker. A-Train goes BOOOOOM!!
