Abdey missed with a haymaker and lost his balance, not an ass whipping by any means. Dont worry though, Abdey has his numbers But damn, Abdey fucked the first dude up!

Posted by SailRacer on April 26, 2010 at 09:13 AM

Draw. Abdelkader took himself down when he missed with that first punch. Morris did the cowardly thing by punching multiple times after the fight was over. I hope the Wings stop playing around with the Coyotes and put them down in game 7.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on April 25, 2010 at 05:11 PM

Morris is a bitch. Coyotes can give it but cant take it. morris punches him multiple times while Justin is on the ice. BIOTCH.

Posted by bugner on July 29, 2010 at 09:52 PM

morris pussied up, jumps in on a clean hit, justin would of fought better if morris did nt get cheap shots in to start the fight, blind sided cheap shot

Posted by LearnHockeyboys on April 25, 2010 at 06:09 PM

well. i never thought id see Morris become a Goon. he must have gotten a pay raise

Posted by nicknines on April 25, 2010 at 08:03 PM

the people on this site suck the fans became softer then hockey, a fight is a fight who cares if someone throws a punch when the other guys down. when was the last time you got into a fight and stoped when the other guy fell. was he so polite when he charged him. and what about all the wings on the ice watching their teamate get beatdown what a joke. i was a huge hockey fan before 2004 i love the sport so much im on strike and i wont watch a game until gary betman dies but i dont miss a fight and after watching these bs fights and reading peoples comments im almost done with this sport all together and this fight is not a 5 not even a 2

Posted by detroitish on April 30, 2010 at 08:49 PM

morris with the win, but it was a clean hit, he was hitting him while down, abs wasn't ready for it. stepped on two sticks. and all this stick up for your goal scorer stuff, no way. stempniak was a no show in that series. he had two assists and finished minus-4. granted i'm a homer, but i would like to see these two on open ice go for it. i think abs would destroy morris.

Posted by E_Fonz on April 25, 2010 at 10:31 PM

What a bunch of pu$$ys on here. Doan was running wings the first two games and Babcock puts Abs out there to do the same and he's dirty? Morris with the dominating win in a crap fight.

Posted by pinchy on April 25, 2010 at 06:38 PM

who could vote this a draw???? I know it sure wasn't much of a fight but do you not have to actually fight back to even be considered for a draw??? old saying" you fuk around..you lay around", win as Pierre "motor mouth" Mcguire would say Monster Morris....blahhh

Posted by Mikkel H. on April 29, 2010 at 08:35 AM

more of a public beating then a fight ...

Posted by Ripper20 on April 25, 2010 at 08:27 PM

Clear win for Morris. But I have to play both sides of the fence here. I like the hit, although after seeing the replay from another angle, it looks like he came in high, almost a head shot. And, with that in mind, I like that Morris came to the aid of his teammate and sends a message... I like the way he picked him back up off the ice with one hand...but then I'm disappointed at all the extra shots he attempted while the Abductor was laying on the ice.

Posted by metz87 on April 25, 2010 at 05:18 PM

Morris got the win but hititng a guy while he is down is not right.

Posted by Behn Wilson on April 29, 2010 at 10:41 AM

''Applicator'' makes a long-distance, but clean, hit, and gets punched to the ice for his efforts, by a better than average, non-fighter.

Posted by Sweeney2112 on April 25, 2010 at 05:20 PM

You want to throw elbows, you're going to get punched while you're down....

Posted by hal29 on April 30, 2010 at 01:25 PM

i didn't see anyone step on a stick, it was all morris and he ragged dolled abdelkader and landed a nice shot. looked like it smacked him in the jaw

Posted by bruins rule on April 26, 2010 at 08:03 AM

morris gets the win in this fight.

Posted by JustinL611 on April 25, 2010 at 07:00 PM

morris slight edge. not a real fight though. can't wait to see how this playoff progresses. I can see a lot of fights next round if Washington advances to face either the flyers or pens...

Posted by Bruins29 on April 28, 2010 at 02:31 PM

Good move by Morris here, sticking up for his teammate and beating down some gutless Detroit puke.

Posted by kryon24 on April 27, 2010 at 06:41 PM

Another wanna be tough guy from Detroit gets the crap beat out of him. Man are we ever a bunch of pansies. Justine runs over that other Eurowuss and then gets handed his ass by Morris. I hope we get Boogard next year but that will never happen because there is probably some other has been like Bersnuzzie that they would rather put there money instead of something we need. PLEASE GET SOME TOUGHNESS NEXT YEAR YOU LOSERS!!

Posted by matt>go habs go on April 28, 2010 at 04:47 PM

HAHAHA love to see that little yank b*tch justin get whats been coming to him. He has to be the biggest cheap piece of sh*t that ever laced them up. Watch his fights and you'll notice one thing in common...He always hits the guy when he goes down. That's why Morris did it and I say right on brotha!! Looking forward to abdelkaders next beating

Posted by mainsail on May 20, 2010 at 09:08 AM

Anyone who claims this was a clean hit is either blind....well, there is no other choice, is there? Look at Abdekladers left arm/elbow at the time of the hit. Directly to the head. If not for that, then I agree, clean hit. With the head shot it's definitely a cheap hit and deserved the clock cleaning that followed. By the way, claims of "if he didn't step on the sticks he would have won the fight..." are laughable. Yep...if wheels were square you would get crumby gas mileage too.

Posted by b.t.wilson on April 25, 2010 at 07:32 PM

morris stands up for his teammate getting flattened from a loooong run. i know he coasted most of the way, but he was flying. it was a great hit, and i don't have a problem with it at all, but stempniak has been phoenix's best goal scorer for a while now, so morris basically had to. morris domination, 5. (is this one hell of a series of what?! too bad about doan...)

Posted by BMHo on April 29, 2010 at 01:00 PM

Abdelkader's hit was definitely not "clean" he was a little high with his elbows there.

Posted by staceyb on April 25, 2010 at 05:33 PM

Morris with the lefts and right with the right coming when Abdelkader was down. Abdelkader got 21 penalty minutes in the contest--how often does that happen to a Detroit player?

Posted by Snowrider on April 26, 2010 at 09:36 AM

What an asshole that Abdel f*cking kader good for him

Posted by C. Alter on April 25, 2010 at 08:45 PM

Abdelkader did a hit to the head of a Coyote teammate of Morris. So he got hit while down? he deserved a major misconduct and suspension. Thank you Morris for doing something about it; another case of poor officiating by NHL.

Posted by rowbearprobear on April 25, 2010 at 05:34 PM

horrible job by the linesbitch not to tie up morris better so he gets one free shot at the end. good job by morris to stick up for his teammate. do you think a wing would come to the aid of a teammate? fat chance. IF the wings get by this bastard team (no father and no home) on Tuesday they better start playing tougher (like that will ever happen) signed sour wing homer in DETROIT

Posted by lvgoalie35 on May 14, 2010 at 04:21 PM

Ok, so it was a clean hit. You can give Morris all the crap you want, but Phoenix was way ahead on the scoreboard. All this fight was about was Morris letting the Red Wings know that they won't get off easy taking any kind of a run, legal or not, against anyone on their bench. This fight was purely about sending a message.

Posted by McraeFan on April 26, 2010 at 11:33 PM

I'm not seeing Abdelkader stepping on ANY stick much less two...... yeah there in between his feet but his blades never seem to touch them..

Posted by ThrowdownSJ408 on April 25, 2010 at 07:33 PM

HAHA of course you are going to get smacked after putting a hit like that

Posted by msaw1125 on April 30, 2010 at 02:05 PM

This is the problem with the NHL! A guy makes a really nice hard, clean hit, and then all of a sudden someone needs to retaliate. I thought checking, whether hard or soft, was LEGAL????

Posted by fernben8 on April 26, 2010 at 06:56 AM

In today's NHL, if you're going to hit like that...you're going to get a beating. Obvious Win for Morris but could have held off one the last one. Notice the silence in the arena.

Posted by jakethesnake on April 26, 2010 at 01:31 PM

Morris the cat beat the 9 lives out of abductor, quick easy beat down...Hard being a lifetime wings fan and seeing this team become mush during the Babs yrs..

Posted by Caniac06 on May 06, 2010 at 07:52 PM

Doesn't look like Morris landed any substantial hits. Abdelkader tripped over a stick and slipped as he tried to get into it.

Posted by kimo_coyote on April 25, 2010 at 06:54 PM

Win Morris. He took a run of 15 feet to hit blindside a man from behind against the boards. Morris did him a big favor punching the Punk in his shielded face. I bet Justin will thank God for face masks. I guess Justin has begun to believe all of the commentators talking about him being a "bad ass" well not yet. Had it been a Coyote doing it the Wing fans would have been howling like a Coyote........Abdelkader is lucky all he got was a couple of punches to his face with his plastic protection. StaceyB, Abdelkader got his misconduct for a "horse crap" another cheap shot on Yandle, and yes WIngs fans Justin punched Yandle three times while Yandle was laying on his back. I liked Justin until I saw this cheap crap coming from him. Payback is a bitch.

Abdelkader like a pussy. Morris destroyed one of these f**cking non-fighting Dead Wings after a cheap and dangerous hit. Great! BTW: 4,5 % Draw ???!!!! + 3,4% Win Abdelkader ???????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! = 7,9 % Idiots

Posted by Riomouse911 on April 26, 2010 at 12:17 PM

I love clean, hard open ice hits, those are things of beauty. However, that was a down right stupid (close to a head-high) hit right near the boards, could've been a really nasty result. That idiot deserved the beating he took, I wish he was dragged back up off the ice and beaten down two or three more times. In fact, he needs another one next game to remind him not to take liberties with guys near the boards.

Posted by acd1 on April 25, 2010 at 07:19 PM

Win Morris

Posted by dawiffenator on May 03, 2010 at 02:48 PM

Abdelkader got owned sooooo bad! I love that fight. And people that say he tripped on sticks are retarded because even if he didnt get tripped,, he would have been koed by morris. He wouldnt have stood a chance. Detroit fans piss me off. You cant take the truth. COYOTES ROCK!

Posted by tomales2 on April 29, 2010 at 08:24 AM

Good hit. Bs cheap shots, regardless of all of the posts to the contrary from the trailer trash brigade.

Posted by dropthemitts11 on April 26, 2010 at 03:17 PM

Everyone here needs to look at the sticks, abdelakder steps on not one but 2 sticks, yeah he really got beat up. I would like to see someone here try fighting and step on a stick 2 different times. Guaranteed on even footing Abdelakder wins that fight. Oh and Abdelkader absolutely killed stempniak CLEAN HIT

Posted by rickrocks65 on April 29, 2010 at 05:36 PM

kind of a cheap shot by Abdelkader but i would say even worse on the part of Morris coming in on Abdelkader and attacking him like that can't Stempniak fight his own battles?

Posted by LilHockeyGirl on May 04, 2010 at 05:24 PM

Hmmm. Well, the original hit sounded a whole lot worse then it was. Stempniak gets up and is fine, he doesn't limp or lay on the ice. Some kudos to Morris for defending his teammate but once Abdelkader hit the ice, Morris should've just taken his victory instead of pounding on the poor thing some more.

Posted by hammertown on April 26, 2010 at 07:36 AM

Posted by carbomb16 on April 26, 2010 at 07:51 PM

high hit on a guy, down 5-1 in the 3rd? you deserve that beating. this guy needs to learn how to hit someone with the gloves off before he tries a hit like that.

Posted by Chill on April 26, 2010 at 01:46 PM

WOW......... Help that man up. That was an old fashioned beat down.

zack morris rings slaters bell

Posted by gmr133 on April 26, 2010 at 12:15 PM

Morris with the clear win. Abdelkader's hit from one angle looks clean, from the other angle looks like an elbow to the head. An iffy hit that pissed off one of the coyotes and Abdelkader took a beating because of it. And you guys with this "code" nonsense about punching someone while he's down on the ice need to give it a rest. If it's two heavies, one of them will stop. If it's a fight that starts out of pure rage or hatred, a guy's going to keep swinging and get in one or two more shots. This has always been the way in hockey. These are better fights than that staged nonsense off the faceoff that neither "enforcer" really cares about.

Posted by khollywood on April 25, 2010 at 06:36 PM

yes hitting a guy when he is on the ice is frowned upon but the abdelkaders hit was high and almost a head shot so i think its justifiable, win morris

Posted by TrueBlue26 on April 26, 2010 at 12:02 PM


Posted by travist on April 27, 2010 at 08:19 PM

"Guaranteed on even footing Abdelakder wins that fight." you cannot say that, look at any type of fight, anyone can lose at any one time. just dumb to make such a blanket statement like that... and people still say "BIOTCH."? really??

Abs has been running around all series and apparently the yotes got tired of it... Win Morris

Posted by kari takko on April 27, 2010 at 01:33 AM

abdelkader deserved the beat down--even the last cheap punches. a shade lower on the hit and it's a non-event. hit was high, powerful & could have crushed a melon. proper for morris to step in & let him know that.

Posted by Richterfan on April 27, 2010 at 06:47 PM

There is nothing better than seeing the Wings lose on the scoreboard and get their [email protected]@es handed to them in a fight. You cannot be a real hockey fight fan and a Detroit Dead Wings fan at the same time. Anybody say's they are is a hypocrite. The Red Wings single handedly have done more to destroy physical hockey than Gary Bettman.

Domination win by Morris. Punch at the end was unnecessary, but what after Abdelkader did to Yandle, it was pretty even. Looking like a great game 7
