There should be an automatic instigator penalty on any loser starting a fight after a clean hit, whether he drops his gloves first or not. I hate that crap, nice clean hit, then you have to go to the penalty box for 5 minutes.
Sad that Bradley can deliver such a good clean hit and that sparks a fight with some "I wanna make a name for myself" guy. I am sure Lundin must be bigger than Bradley, can't he stick up for himself...if needed. I mean if Brads had given a cheap shot, then a teammate standing up for his fallen comrade is great. Yet Big Clean Hit = Fight from someone else...As laughlin said....can't you deliver big hits anymore? Brads did not clobber him but Hall did not change the momentum with his pitiful effort in the "fight"
Clear winner in so many ways- Matt Bradley
I think it is all in context. This was the 3rd or 4th time Bradley took a run at someone (clean on this one) and the Caps had a couple other boarding/roughing calls. Because the Bolts dont have an enforcer, Hall stepped up to answer the bell.
People....I like reading comments about what you thought of the fight and/or the game itself. Anything else, such as what you think of the skill of the commentators, keep it to yourself. Nobody cares about what you think the announcers sound like. I promise. This is hockeyfights.com, not
I wouldn't be saying anything but I can't even read a single fight's comments anymore without hearing some lame review of how bad the commentators are DURING A HOCKEY FIGHT. WHO CARES?! If you're listening to the announcers, you're missing the fight, anyway.
