Felt Rypien protected himself well and snuck in a few quick lefts (although weak).
Neil tried to throw some rights himself but were blocked well by Rypien,
Slightest edge to Rypien.
Two of the top, if not the top, pound for pound guys in the league going at it. Both guys couldn't get going and had to settle for a uneventful draw. Anyone who thinks Ripper was holding on for any other reason other than he couldn't get a good grip so that he could let loose is an IDIOT. Yes, I'm referring to you Claire.
