That was a paddlin'. I score it 10 to -5 for RR.

Sorry for the delayed reviews, been travelling again. Just catching up on everything...speaking of which, am I having an acid flashback, or did the Habs just beat the Caps????? As for this, Bozo the Clune starts a fight while not being ready, and pays the price...but then again...clowns aren't generally clever.

Posted by Mikkel H. on April 24, 2010 at 07:09 AM

I hope the kings dress ivanans and westgarth for the next game to teach those F!"#€% canucks a lesson .. clune lost his footing,hurt his shoulder and rypien took advantage ..emberasing to watch as a kings fan...

Posted by lowbrow78 on April 24, 2010 at 05:21 PM

Who voted for Clune? Did he land or even throw a punch? Voting for Clune is like voting for the nail against the hammer.

Posted by Detroit_Caps on April 27, 2010 at 09:57 AM

Clune fell on his shoulder in the begining. A loss but not an ass kicking. Clune will remember the number and get a rematch,

Posted by hal29 on April 24, 2010 at 11:25 PM

this gets a 6 just because rypein's name is involved. like i siad before fights like this are voted by name. rypien gets a win a not so exciting or eventfull fight but none the less he gets a cheesy win. rypien could hget his ass kicked and still win or he could get in a fight where they are just hugging and get a 6 or a 7, I watch this fight over and over and over and see 2 little bytch punches thrown by rypien, like how rypien gets the gloves off before even really looking at clune. I would say a little bit of a jump. doesn't matter if clune initiated it or not, i'm sure he was looking for a fear square up but rypien is all set most times. he likes to get them off quick like a wendal clark but this fight doesn't deserve more then a 3 on rating. a six is just retarded. o'brien's fight had more landed and lucic's fight had atleast 3 punches landed that were quality punches with power and those two fight don't come cloese to the rating on this. i'm sure clune will want another go but he knows how rypien is now and he predictable and has no power.

Posted by Bad Dawg on April 24, 2010 at 12:35 PM

Clune starts it and gets the bag beat off of him!!! Kings need to put Ivanans back on the 4th line.

Posted by slavv on May 02, 2010 at 07:19 PM

Quick, easy win for Rypien...

Posted by swampdog on April 24, 2010 at 02:51 AM

clear win, but not much of a fight

Posted by jax10 on April 24, 2010 at 02:47 AM

Just a little background. Clune had already injured his soldier, I believe during a game 3 hit by Bernier. He clearly didn't want to fight, but he seemed to be asking for it. For all these people thinking Clune is a terrible fighter, why don't you give the guy a few fights where he can throw a punch.

Posted by Debaser on April 24, 2010 at 10:52 PM

Ouch. ...get a clune

Posted by DARCY T on October 06, 2010 at 06:59 AM

its a shame that rypien kinda jumped clune.im dissapointed !!! win rypien

Posted by Ripper20 on April 24, 2010 at 12:35 PM

The lack of quality fights since the end of the regular season must have a negative effect on the viewers' rating systems. How does this rate a 6? There's only one, maybe two punches even thrown. Rypien gets the win in a waaayyyy over rated fight.

Posted by bruiseyoureye on April 24, 2010 at 01:40 AM

rypien wins.

Posted by Pierre LaRoc on April 27, 2010 at 08:05 AM

Please, oh please, stop comparing this lightweight to Wendel Clark. Wendel never threw quick, little fairy punches like this guy. Wendel fought real heavyweights, like Probert and Kordic. This girl shouldn't even be mentioned in the same breath as Wendel Clark.

Posted by b.t.wilson on April 24, 2010 at 11:15 PM

really, not much of a fight. the first two thrown didn't really land, the next two shots to the forehead did the trick i guess... rypien with the win though, calling it a 4.

Posted by HavoK041 on April 24, 2010 at 02:59 AM

Clune started it, Rypien ended it.

Posted by ViperUsa1 on April 24, 2010 at 09:26 PM

I don't think Clune will try that again.

Posted by Benny_blanco11 on April 26, 2010 at 03:53 PM

Ronald McDonald is a Clune!... He ran out of the rink 'cause he needed to check his balloon knot. There's a reason he's doesn't have front teeth...

Posted by bodgertime on May 12, 2010 at 06:15 PM

Clune shouldn't be on a playoff roster. Obviously Rypien is out of his league but stupid is as stupid does. So Clune gets his ass handed to him, deservedly so. Jackhammer lefts and it's over quicklike.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on April 24, 2010 at 01:39 AM

Clune wanted it..........i bet he regrets that now

Posted by staceyb on April 24, 2010 at 06:00 AM

At this point of the game the Kings and Terry Murray should have backed up the bus next to the locker room. What a blowout.

Posted by Canuck-One on April 24, 2010 at 01:22 AM

It wasn't even close as Rypien popped him a few and then dropped him to the ice. I had heard Clune could fight, I guess not

Posted by bruins rule on April 24, 2010 at 06:43 AM

rypien gets the easy win in this fight.

Posted by crosscheck52 on April 24, 2010 at 07:06 AM

Ouch, Clune touched up to get Rypien's attention, but forgot he was asking for an a--kicking.

Posted by EastKing on April 24, 2010 at 10:25 AM

Clune has not studied Rypien fights. If he had he would not have picked one with Rypien. Rypien crushed him and I doubt Clune will make that mistake again!

Posted by GCBC00 on April 24, 2010 at 10:31 PM

"Too much too soon." Win Rypien. Damn, he's a great boxer. WIN RYPIEN

Posted by fernben8 on April 25, 2010 at 07:13 AM

Clune's lesson on being home schooled...Never judge a book by it's cover !

Posted by sedinfan on April 25, 2010 at 01:24 PM

Ripper dominates, but I think Clune separated his shoulder or something after getting his face pumped full of knuckles.

Posted by drpkick82 on April 28, 2010 at 11:13 PM

Clune was getting fed there at the end of the scrap. No question who the winner was there. Clune got thumped.

Posted by straightup on April 24, 2010 at 02:12 AM

Note to the Clune, when you start a fight - be ready to fight. Seems simple now that you think about it.

Posted by Puck Rock on January 13, 2011 at 08:38 PM

What was Clune thinking? How badly do you want to get beat down?

Posted by metz87 on April 24, 2010 at 06:50 PM

All Rypien in this good fight. He pretty much destoroed Clone.

Posted by saurus on April 24, 2010 at 01:53 AM

the kings took a beating in every aspect of the game. this was just icing on the cake. clune gets rag dolled for the 2nd time in the game by rypien

Posted by sh_varsity19 on April 24, 2010 at 08:44 AM

Seriously ... who voted for Clune hahha Big kill for the Rypppper!!!

Posted by lush on April 24, 2010 at 02:40 AM

I'm surprised Clune wasn't ready after initiating that, or perhaps he was just slow?

Posted by farmerbrad on April 24, 2010 at 06:10 PM

Rypien is a nasty scraper. Very fast and much stronger than anyone expects......Clown, I meen Clune was pitiful....if he deserved any pit that is. Rypien reminds me of Wendle Clark in his prime....without the scoring touch.

Posted by LetR Rip on April 25, 2010 at 03:13 PM

Rypien is a BEAST!!

Posted by bobbyloouu on September 24, 2010 at 08:28 PM

Clune is a b**ch. no room in the nhl for guys like that. atta boy rypper

Posted by The.Kozaa on October 08, 2010 at 07:43 AM

Very eeeeasy win for Rypien. oh yeaaah

Posted by Mack Seaton on April 24, 2010 at 10:32 AM

Ripper destroyed that idiot.

Posted by knuckle_chucker on April 24, 2010 at 01:16 AM

like so many before him, clune highly under estimated Rypien. Looks like a dislocated shoulder to boot, W Rypien.

Posted by NVD on April 24, 2010 at 01:30 AM

Clune had it coming given all his antics from the game. The announcers were right when they said Clune hasn't earned the respect to be doing the things he does out there. Its unfortunate it looked like he had an injury on the fight, but: He got what he deserved!

Posted by boldbilly on April 24, 2010 at 08:46 AM

Ha ha ha l.o.l are you kidding me . SEND IN THE CLOWNS OR IN THIS CASE THE CLUNES. Be carefull what you wish for in life Richard Clune cause you just might get it. Wow I'm still laughing. Maybe he should be playing baseball because he is one hell of a catcher.

Posted by Rypien37 on April 24, 2010 at 01:56 AM


Posted by badiaz01 on May 16, 2010 at 05:24 AM

Clune did get killed pretty bad however i feel like rypien started kinda locker boxin him with the gloves on and caught him off guard, i guess u cant just skate up to rick rypien during that time in a game and ask for a fight and not expect that.

Posted by bcboy37 on April 24, 2010 at 02:36 AM

Clune should of known he couldn't take Rypien, even though he deserves it, you don't want to see a guy go down like that , were not blood thirsty animals, get better Clune!

Posted by JohnnyCanuck on April 24, 2010 at 01:52 AM

Haha two Kings get both their pathetic asses beat in the third period of a 7-2 loss to the Canucks... best playoff game of the series by far.

Posted by dawiffenator on May 04, 2010 at 11:25 PM

Rypien by a long shot

Posted by kaddaber on April 24, 2010 at 02:40 AM

The ripper destroys Clune. Bout time he was taken out of he game

Posted by micah555 on April 24, 2010 at 02:25 AM

This was a thing of beauty. Clune gets worked like a sewing machine in a sweatshop. Rypien with pure domination.

Posted by nuckles88 on April 27, 2010 at 04:00 AM

Pretty sure Clune was out cold at the end there haha stupid guy does he not know who Rypien is?! Guy was beakin at Vancouver all night thinkin he was all tuff... it was awesome seeing him get beat down ;)

Posted by Omenator on April 24, 2010 at 01:46 AM

Clune got what he had coming. Asked for it and got it. Maybe Greene will have the balls to back up his cheap shots next game, but I doubt it.

Posted by jjj92 on April 26, 2010 at 03:15 PM

Way to kick ass Rypien!!

Posted by brew ha ha on April 24, 2010 at 03:23 PM

Nice! The ripper chalks up another win.

Posted by Eman40 on April 24, 2010 at 05:20 PM

Got luv it when Clune's YAP is going ...and the opposing BENCH is Not Listening.But it's priceless when he felt RYPIEN's Rippers discombobulate him from is feet and leave him with a SEPERATED SHOULDER.

Posted by xpaand on April 24, 2010 at 07:28 PM

"Turn around.. I wanna see the name on your jersey." No name Clune got demolished for running his mouth and trying to dry hump Luongo. O'Brien's celebration was stupid and made him look like a clown, but even O'Brien is classy when you put Clune next to him. @Ripper20: I think the fight got a high rating cause of how happy everyone was to see Clune, the no skill trash talker, get dominated and hurt.

Posted by hockeymike on April 24, 2010 at 11:20 AM

Kudos to the linesmen for letting them stand back up...Clune probably wishes that they didn't now

Posted by ulfy on April 24, 2010 at 02:49 PM

i like to know who was the moron who picked Clune (Clown). dun think Ripper had a easier fight all year. Win Ripper.

Posted by mattlemcke on April 24, 2010 at 01:29 AM

As always, Rypien is underestimated. Best fighter league wide.

Posted by jmackisback on April 24, 2010 at 01:52 PM

Clune throws the first shot....gloved.....and then gets demolished.

Posted by Bloodbank on April 26, 2010 at 05:01 PM

I was going to give Cloown props for answering the bell but he started this fight and was clearly out of his league - and now the playoffs... he must have missed the memo? KD win for Rypien!

Posted by millwright1966 on April 24, 2010 at 02:48 PM

Clune had his ass handed to him

Posted by ThrowdownSJ408 on April 24, 2010 at 03:22 AM

haha not close. I guess the ripper is pretty cool. I like this fight.

Posted by Bosoxshute on April 24, 2010 at 09:50 AM

Awesome job Rypien! I'm an Avs fan, hope you get a hold of Ryan Clowe for San Jose down the road and do the same thing to him!

Posted by djbat on April 24, 2010 at 02:35 PM

i guess the 1% clune got was from his family rypien killed him!!!

Posted by Jerjer on April 24, 2010 at 01:40 AM

Clune the clown deserved it lol

Posted by rickrocks65 on April 29, 2010 at 05:42 PM

at first i was going to say Rypien took advantage of Clune not being prepared but giving credit where credit is due i think he backed off because he knew Clune was injured in the fall

Posted by hammertown on April 24, 2010 at 01:37 PM

You don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't spit into the wind, you don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger and you don't mess around with Rick. There's more to a fight than starting it.

Posted by blackngold on April 24, 2010 at 12:28 PM

Ask and you shall receive

Posted by travist on April 24, 2010 at 05:30 AM

clune was injured, but that doesn't explain why he asked to fight and then acted like he had no idea why rypien was punching him in the face. he obviously re-aggravated his shoulder injury, but still clear beat down here in a so-so fight.

Posted by muskokadangler on April 24, 2010 at 04:16 PM

That wasn't much of a fight

Posted by LilHockeyGirl on April 26, 2010 at 05:15 PM

Clune hurt his shoulder... Hope he's okay. But that being said, he got owned. Seriously.

Posted by kitcarnut on April 28, 2010 at 10:02 AM

Clune with an awesome display of Courage & stupidity at the same time. Dangerous combination, he should really re-think his role in the League. Wanna be tough guy ain't working out .

Posted by chad420 on April 24, 2010 at 11:54 AM

win ripper....clown got pown'd

Posted by TrueBlue26 on April 24, 2010 at 11:44 AM

rypien is a beast with fists

Posted by Rick16 on April 24, 2010 at 07:59 PM

all rypien! clune got what he deserved.

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on April 25, 2010 at 08:49 PM

Clune had no business challenging Rypien, and he paid for it. Rypien put him in his place.

Posted by Keredz on April 24, 2010 at 06:14 PM

Clune ate some knuckles, guess he won't be trash talking anymore.

Posted by booterbuilder on April 24, 2010 at 01:28 PM

Nice one Rick!! Who's the clown that voted for Clune? Whada maroon!

Posted by Liamwhite on April 26, 2010 at 03:20 AM

Clune picked a good time to fight and kudos for going there but not against Rypien and from what i have heard he got a broken jaw out of the deal so ouch!
