Westgarth had some pretty good fights leading into this one. He loses this one but proves he is one tough MF'er. Scott got the first punch in and bloodied W's nose. After that, Scott lands some big punches and W stays on his skates, remains alert and keeps trying to fight. On the LA feed, it looks like Scott is looking at the linesmen and holding back for them to come in at the end. On the Chicago feed you can see W tapping Scott as if to say "I've had enough". A stop on cuts is a TKO. As far as slaw putting Pat Foley in the same class as Jack Edwards, there is no comparison. Pat Foley won an Emmy award for live sports broadcasting. He is also in the Chicago Sports Hall of Fame with two guys named Jack Brickhouse and Harry Caray. When a Chicago player, has the bad end of it in a fight, Foley calls it that way. slaw, you should have your mom help you find some old Pat Foley fight calls on youtube or watch a few broadcast where Foley does the call.
Bloody mess boy what a ass whipping by Scott
Obvious win for Scott. This retarded announcer is getting to be a bad as Jackass Edwards...
westgarth, doesn,t belong in the league!, he,s got no skills and he can,t fight!
I feel for Westgarth because he kept going although Scott dominated. Scott landed more punches with results.
All part of the learning curve, welcome to the NHL Westgarth, he will come back. Those shots would have buckled anyone. The early shot got his nose and after that, he was stunned and tried to recover. A big W for Scott and a big A for Westgarth in school, fight class A1.. Westgarth is willing and I love the sportsmanship..the shot against the glass would have killed an average man....
Scott dominated here but i would hardly call him "one of the league's best" with a resume that includes Zach Stortini, Brad Wincester, Alexander Bolduc and the always fearsome Dean Arsene. I went to a couple of Blues/Wild games last year where Scott wanted nothing to do with DJ King. I know Blackhawks fans are loyal to their team but this guy hasnt fought anyone yet.
scott wins pass the gravy please?..lol
Nice slow-mo "DONK" in that clip! Not even close, JS with an easy thrashing of KW.
I don't know which is more retarded, people voting for Westgarth or people stating he tapped out. Scott kicked his ass and had let up, they gave each other a tap acknowledging one another as guys doing their job. I'm a Kings fan and read on their web-site that Westgarth said he was good for one of those a year. I'm hoping he meant the broken nose and not that drubbing he received, because I don't think he can/should take another beating like that.
I almost wanted to vote to Westie simply for the fact he didnt die. . . but to much size to overcome when it started so quickly . . . I cant wait to see what happens in the rematch.
' Westgarth mother voted for him. His brother voted for draw. '
all that was left of waste-garth was the blood being scraped off the ice by those pretty innocent valley girls
That painful and embarrassing as a Kings fan. But I have to give props to Westy for at least trying to get the crowd back into the game, and his teammates in the losing effort. After watching again I think all the blood came from the helmet being ripped off.
Ouch. Win Scott. Would still like to see him fight a legit NHL heavy.
Westy gets tattooed early and hard by the big man,.. havin blood in your eyes makes it tough to try and come back in a tilt if you gotta fight fair. Im a big Westy fan but he got OWNED... Rematch better be a real personal goal or its back to toiling in the AHL for KW. lates, Von S.
Send Westgarth to the minors - this is too taugh for him... whatta punchbag.
U people ack like u never seen someone lose a fight. He lost the fight and got cut, big deal. With how hard he got punched he was never in danger of getting KO'd. Give me a break. We lost the game and the fight.
there were so many great things about that video. The beatdown. The beatdown in ultra slow mo. Chicks in bikinis scraping blood off the ice. Rocco's Old School Tattoo Balm.
JOHN SCOTT is the clear victor!!! Slaw, you are either a Hockey novice, a huge idiot or you have NEVER listened to a Hawks broadcast before! Pat Foley is one of the best announcers in any sport and calls it like he sees it! Go Hawks!!!
Holy crap! Westgarth came back to the bench after they cleaned him up and now he looks like Lappy!!!
Busted the f*** open by the giant.
WIN SCOTT! No question who the winner was in this one. This is laughable. Once again another L.A. QUEENS player has his a$$ handed to him. I dont understand how the " QUEENS" coaching staff feel Westgarth is a enforcer for this team. He might be in a womens hockey league. I think I saw part of his brain hanging out of his ear. I just wish someone would get a hold of their piece of shi* captain and do the same to him.
Eat a few more westgarth
After the fight, John Scott told Kevin Westgarth he wanted to eat his children.
There was NO TKO. At no time did Westgarth get buckled, he definately got pummeled and bloodied up. I give a LOT of credit to Scott for tapping Westgarth and telling him to stop after seeing how f**ked up his face was. Total domination by Scott.
Westgarth is the worst skater in the league
Give Westgarth cudos for courage and fortitutde but thats it. He was done after two punches. Scott was dominating. I plan to go back and watch Scott's other fights to determine where he fits in the list of fighters.
win scott but i give a lot of credit to westgarth
Westy got his head handed to him in this one. Starting to wonder about him. Scott with a very easy win.
ITS TIME TO TALK ABOUT SCOTT AS AN ELITE HEAVY,AWESOME DISPLAY
Scott dominates. Westgarth had been looking ok recently too but got totally dominated here. Got to love the super-slo-mo at the end of the clip.
Westgarth should try cutting his hair maybe that would give him strength... can you say s##t kicking!
Scott was almost surgical in this one the way he picked Westgarth apart.
yeah, anything but voted domination and you're fucked in the head.
J. Scott rarely looses, under-rated fighter.
Westgarth looked microscopic in this fight, the poor bugger. Poor ice girls too, can't imagine that was in their "job responsibilities" at the sign in.
OK, who were the CERTIFIED IDIOTS that voted for Westgarth? Stand up and make yourself known, this way birth control can be handed out to you so you don't bring any more idiots into the world!
Big John Scott with the win here, kudos to westgarth for being a punching bag.....he got THUNDERSTRUCK!!!!
Westy's mug looked like filet mignon extra rare at the end. Classy of him to tap Scotty thrice at the end as if to say "You won big time man." Watching that "ultra-mo" shot gave me a headache this morning--I can imagine how Westy feels!
westgarth gained my respect after this one. he took a handful of direct bombs to the head and kept a good attitude and even gave scott a good job pat.
Ooooo. That was ugly. John Scott laid down a beating on TV. From super slo-mo of Scott smacking Westgarth hard on the temple to the little ice tart scraping up his blood spatter...lots of mad, disturbing, primal images flickering in short order. It was like a war movie...except it was real.
Scott has the win, a domination.
It takes a brave man to stand in there with Scott. Scott with the obvious win. Not really fair. No one is in this guys class besides Boogaard. He is a monster. Watched him all last year on the Wild. When he fist came up he didn't really like to drop'em. He has since really embraced the role of enforcer. Scary.
No buildup, Westgarth and Scott just went. Scott allowed Westgarth to do his best Chuck Wepner imitation, with Westy leaving the ice a bloody pulp. Scott was, at least on this night, the Murdersaurus.
When Scott was in Minnesota, he learned from a thing or two from the Boogie Man. I think Scott is more dangerous Boogard though. Scott will throw a lot more punches and is very aggressive, Boogard is too laid back, looking for the big punch. With Scotts size, strength and skills, he can throw with anyone in the league. As a Wild fan I think Scott was lot more valueable than Boogard, Scott could get a regular shift.
Not much to say about this one... maybe this will give Westgarth a chance for some plastic surgery, he's not the greatest looking guy to start out with. But Scott is an absolute beast, it's too bad he's terrible at everything but fighting.
Scott turns Westgarth into a bloody mess.
What moron would actually vote against Scott? He is the single most dominant fighter in the NHL.
Scott all the way. This guy is a monster! Too bad NY doesn't play Chicago the rest of the season. I would love to see Boogaard-Scott.
Wow...just wow. Even with this beat down I still expect more from Big John Studd. Get angry man!
Punch of the year in my book...1;21 on the replay.
you can see the ref even say "come on john" after the first 4 punches ... awesome john scott!
Yikes! i was waiting for westergarths mom to jump out of the stands and staring hitting scott with her purse! If you watch the end westergarth taps Scott on the elbow, because he knows Scott could have punched his head into the first row. Scott held up because he didnt want a manslaughter charge on his record. westie is a tough kid,he broke Koci"s jaw in the pre season, Big John Scott beat him like a 9 dollar a day rent a car in vegas.
I'm giving this a TKO cause Westgarth literally tapped out
Anyone that voted draw or Westgarth is a fool pure and simple. Total domination by Scott. He held back at the end when he could have hurt Westgarth BAD. Anyone that thinks Westgarth tapped Scott to say nice job needs to watch this again. He tapped out of the fight because he didn't want anything more to do with the fight pure and simple.
Westgarth takes more shots than Darcy Tucker at a Habs-Leafs-Avalanche reunion. Scott absolutely unloads on the over-matched Hanson brother, on his way to a one-sided victory that serves to re-establish his position as one of the league's best.
right ...up...side...your...head Clear win by Scott
scott is an animal although slow, his right is calclated and very strong. tko
Scott might have left a tattoo of his knuckles on Westgarth's face. What a mess.
Now that was a butt kicking. The chicago announcer is a total toolbag though.
scott smoked westgarth total one way fight
The young man was taught a lesson...welcome to the NHL Kevin! I wanna see Scott do this to Boogie
Just a pure beatdown!! The Hansen brother's face looked like Rocky Balboa's after going 15 rounds with Apollo Creed. The ultra-slo-mo shot was painful to just watch... Blood all over Scott's knuckles says it all!!! Total domination by Scott. Westgarth better learn some defensive skills or he's gonna end up like Fedoruk.
scott gets the win in this bloody fight.
ouch! westy is going to get killed with the big boys!
Scott with a very decisive massacre, I know he's a liability on the ice at times but he needs to be out there patrolling more! I give credit to Westgarth for standing in there!!!
Gosh that some heavy butt whooping going on. Scott annihilates Westgarth who gets mad props from me for never surrendering. Scott though cranks him silly right from the get go. I wonder how much "repair" Westgarth had to conduct afterwards.
Westy's a good guy, tappin scott after the fight even tho he messed his face up. and whats with the ice girls doin the cleanup hahahahaha
Now, if he would just fight someone in the top 10, I would give John Scott credibility.
Westgarth looked like a ragdoll from the get go.... See his arms spread out to his side while Scott jacked his face 3 or 4 times. Then the bone shattering shot at the end....
John Scott completely dominated Westgarth in that fight. Westgarth was wearing the "crimson mask" at the end of it.
Damn, Scott is scary..
Not much you can do when you get locked out by a guy with that kind of reach.
Domination. The was a beating of the highest order. When your face is so bloody the hair sticks to it, that has to suck. Sunglasses and ski mask won't hide the damage done. Too bad Scott can't find his way on the ice because he brings a new dimension to the Hawks when he's out there not tripping over the blue line.
Scott landed 3 right off the bat and picked Westgarth up as he went down. He had all the time he wanted to place his shots and could heve mand a real mess of Westgarth if he ahd wanted to. Westgarth tapped out as Scott held him up against the glass. #19 Westgarth 5min for receiving , #32 Scott 5min for fighting.
it was a good fight, I just got home form work a turned on the tv and about a min later they began fighting so I am not sure what triggerd it, however Scott beat him pretty good and props to Westgarth for not just hitting the deck and giving up when he was cut and bleeding so badly also props to both fighters for they display of class at the end when the reffs broke it up with a friendly pat on the back/shoulder and an exchange of what looked like non hostile words
good tilt and a convincing win by big john scott. although it looks like westie might have stepped on a stick with his left skate which lead to a bloody face....either way win for scott. when can we see scott vs boogaard??
Scott with a thorough no-rush manhandling of Westgarth. Some side notes: Absolutely love how Westgarth gives Scott a "Thanks for the fight" pat on his right shoulder soon after the "That's enough" tap on his ribs. Attractive women gently cleaning up the blood. Wholesome all around.
Westgarth takes a decent number of punches, but you've got to respect him standing up to that last right and tapping. Standing TKO, that last temple blow hurt when i heard it live.
Scott shows class by stopping when he could have destroyed. Westgarth showed guts. Entertaining, and an illustration of the best aspects by both of the Code.
John Scott tagged him and really opened him up in beginning
Now that is power!!! Scott beat the living shit out of Westgarth.
Seriously, who the f**k votes for Westgarth here ??!? I think in fights like this that are nowhere near close, the admin for this site should be allowed to boot off the morons that vote for the loser of such a disproportionate fight. Haters be hating, and I don't like Scott, but he's a total beast, and dominated this fight from start to finish, toying with Westie.... Accept it, and vote accordingly or leave. Win Scott
That one punch won the entire fight. You know which one im talking about.
Up from the minors, Westgarth got a lesson from one of the behemoths currently patrolling the NHL. Scott's only competitors would be the Boogeyman, MacIntyre or McGratton (bring him back please!) and perhaps Orr, Janssen or Thornton on a good day.
Scott teaches Westgarth a lesson. Bloody mess...
Check out that slo mo punch right to the side of his watermelon head. I always thought Treeman 2 was a better fighter than Treeman 1 (Boogie) when they were both on Minnesota. Scott proves it here in his destruction of Hanson Brother 1. I wonder what kind of power Scott has as he landed several flush on the button and Hanson didn't flinch (except for that last one as he said "No Mas" and tapped out). If Boogie would have landed that clean, it would've been lights out and facial reconstruction. Who knows though maybe Hanson can take one helluva punch. Total annihilation for Scott.
THIS IS WHY SCOTT NEEDS TO BE IN THE LINEUP EVERYDAY WESTGARTH WIT A ASS BEATING SCOTT DOMINATED FROM START TO FINNISH
Cant wait to see JS take on other heavyweights. Kudos for holding off, he could have caved Kevins face in.
What Fukcen idiot voted for anything but Big JS. I wish Big JS gets a shot at Booger. He will destroy clumsy Booger.
Disturbing to watch...Scott should be in the lineup every game. His presence gets the team going. I have a friend in the WILD organization who told me that very few guys are willing to fight Scott and that he could be the top HW. He went as far as to say Scott would "Is a better fighter than Boogard" Take it for what its worth. IMO - he still needs to take on a top 5 guy to truly establish himself as a top HW. Would be fun to see and we can only pray the Hawks brass keeps him in.
Take that in your mellon Westie. Scott with clear win. Like his toughness but not his skating ability. Btw, at that size you should never lose a fight.
At least a pint of blood spilled.... would have loved to see Scott vs Boogard..
CRUNCH, ZAP, SPLAT, ZOWIE! Holy razorblades Batman, that wasn't even a close shave!...This Scott guy throws em like ole Dave the Hammer ...bring on another heavier-weight so we can see just how good he is. Hats off to Westy for the effort though! A+ Speaking of play by play mouths...wouldn't it have been great had Westy been a Bruin and Jack Edwards tried to call his "over and under" babble, in favor of Westy.
Westgarth rag dolled by stronger guy with better balance!
I love how everyone sits here and kinda bad mouths Scott as pretty much being a "bully" and beating up the smaller guys and that he needs to fight a top 5 in order to prove himself. I myself think that Scott would do just fine against another heavyweight, his punches are crisp and heavy, and the most important thing is that he can stay balanced the entire time! obvious the win goes to Scott.....even though he cant skate and he cant play/shoot the puck, atleast he can make up for it and get the team pumped while breaking faces!
One of the most one-sided fights I've seen. Westgaarth came looking for Scott and he got it. I just wonder about the fools who voted Westgaarth the winner. He didn't land a single punch. Hats off to Westgaarth for maintaining his wits after taking such a beating.
at the game, second row, greatest thing i have even witnessed
Scott had some good hits and created a turnover on his shifts following this signature bout. Give the kid credit he is not getting much ice time to develop the skills or chemistry needed to be in the lineup every game. If he starts owning the space in front of your goalie he will be a very serious player to deal with.
Big John Scott does not look for trouble and just handles his business. Westgarth handled himself like a warrior (albeit a defeated warrior) and Scott eased up on the punishment.
a large can of Wuppass!!!! was opened
Westgarth needs to stop blocking punches with his face ... Every time I watch it, I see something different that makes me laugh/cringe ... Scott's face in the slo-mo, how much the opposite side of Westgarth's face moves in the slow-mo, the ref telling Westgarth there's no chance you're sitting in this penalty box kid, the tip of your nose is touching your ear lobe .... Great stuff
wow that was awesome also like the class that scott shows at the end of the fight
scott raped him
Nice win for Scott
wow wow wow wow wow wow........ what an ass whoopin.
Scott sits out 7 games and comes back to fulfill his roll with this young Blackhawks team, E-N-F-O-R-C-E-R! Scott beats Westgarth's face WEST, south, north and east in this onesided bloody bout!
damn I guess scott is fo real
great fight i like it when there is blood, go scott go
In all honesty im a huge kings fan.. and yes scott wooped westgarths ass. but all in all i gotta give it up to westgarth to get something going for the team. it takes alot of balls to go up against scott and he did and payed for it. PROPS to westgarth for trying to amp the team up and for try and PROPS to scott for the win. i was at the game and once he saw westgarth bloodied he kinda chilled out a little. did throw a couple more but looked at the refs wanting them to step in. Good fight! hope westgarth learns from this.
Total destruction. Westgarth was terminated.
Westgarth - nice "tap out" on Scott's arm at the end. Saved you from further beat-dwn.
Dont tangle with the Big Boys unless you got game. Westgarth got his butt kicked! It dosnt get much worse than this one. Total Domination! In watching the fight, I even feel that Scott let up a little because of the lopsidedness of this bout!
It's times like these that im glad to be a hawks fan
Last time Westgarth asks Scott to Fight .. lol scott: "I heard the ref say stop, stop, stop but he kept going so I kept throwing.” What a idiot Go Hawks
Who voted draw????? moron.
hell of a tilt. win scott. nice to see the respect by scott at the end when westgarth tapped out. Thats what sets these guys apart from alikes of " sean avery or daniel carcillo . hell of a fight.
tap, tap, tap-a-roo
John Scott is a better fighter
Thats my boy
John Scott destroyed this dude so bad he tapped out...best fight ive ever seen by far, Westgarths face was priceless
This has to be one of the bloodiest, one-sided fights i have EVER seen!!!
Great fight, John Scott clearly the victor here, but props to Westgarth standing in there. Rare to see a lot of tap outs but that just shows you the force of John Scott
How on earth could anyone say that westie won this fight or even call it a draw Big John Scott beat this guy to a bloody mess. Pat Foley's call of the fight was awesome. Way to go Big John!!!!!
Scott totally destroyed him. As a Hawks fan, I was laughing for like five minutes afterwards.
westgarth got KFO
obviously Scott with the win. But I don't think westgarth was tapping out, it looked more to me like he was saying "good fight".
How could anyone vote that Westgarth won this fight? He deserves tons of credit for hanging in there the way he did. Scott is making a name for himself. Thumbs up to both players.
Sorry...but punching the guy into the glass.. Yeah...that says it all right there.
Domination by the big man. What was Westgarth thinking?
Total domination by Scott,as usual
he tapped out good job big john scott
Oh My! We miss You in CHI Johnny!
thunderstruck is FN stupid! Westie got his ass handed to him.
Westgarth dominates thats the best Face to Hand Technique ever just watch Westgarths style it`s second to none.Do you know how many years of training with the Monks in the Secret Mountains of Nepal that takes. New tactic on beating John Scott is to hit him the whole game dirty hockey. Then aim all slap shots at his body.Hit him low.Mess with his head.Or jump him in the pre-game wearing brass knuckles and I mean the whole team.Get someone Bigger !!!!!!! Call a Gang or Mafia.Shoot him.
My boy Westy gets handled pretty properly. We'll get em next time.
westie ate some big punches, i want to see scott against someone who can fight before i think high of him, he is big but then what this went wrong for westie right from the start, he needs to be more defensive against big guys or his time as an nhl enforcer will be short
when scott actually looks like he's mad he is freaking scary, domination
Review not needed. For a verdict please see the fighters faces.
Lets see how Scott does against Brandon Prust
Wow. Beat down by Scott on a big, tough guy like Westgarth. That doesn't help Westgarth's bid to stay in Los Angeles. That was brutal. Great slow-mo. Westgarth shows what happens to the guy who reaches for the other guy's sweater first.
I think the way Westgarth's helmet got pulled off helped bloody his nose but he did get punched several times after...Scott Dominated
Why does Westgarth fight? He is the new Riley Miley Cote. Neil is much smaller beat his ass. Now Scott destroys him.....waste of a jersey
Kevin, pick on someone your own size. "You've bven thunder-struck." Wow!!!!
Westgarth tapped out... kind of funny
Why did the Wild get rid of this guy?????
The grip was everything in this fight. Once Scott got the dominant grip, he pounded at will. Kudos for Westgarth for not dropping to the ice. Then again, maybe he should have....
Getting thunderstruck doesn't look too fun
"I need more tinfoil boys"....Big John Studd gives the Hanson Brother a full crimson mask to wear for next Halloween
Scott is just a mountain of a fella. The reach and strength were just too much for Westgarth.
Off for repairs sums this fight up, Scott really tagged him with that final right. Drop the pipe if u voted for Westgarth
Great fight easy win for Scott. I would like to see him step up his compittion to. Westgarth has lost four in a row now.
I don't understand! Do people mistakenly pick Westgarth as the winner of this fight or do people think that taking a butt kicking is the way to win!?!
Beat down!!!! I wonder if Westgarth would have perferred to get a nose job somewhere else in LA!!!! Scotts a Monster but there are a number in the league who can Hang with him!!! Mcyntre being one loved the slow mo shot to the cheek.....Bet he's pritty bruised up today
Wow, that did not go well for Westgarth but he deserves respect for standing in there.
John Scott showed last season he was a real tough guy and could hang in with the best of them. This guy is a tank!
What is wrong with the 1.2% who didn't chose Scott as the winner?!?!?!
Yikes Mr. Scott sir!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow Scott is a beast! Glad he is on our Hawks. Someone on this site is on crack- they actually voted for Westgarth?
Have to give Westgarth credit; he hung in there and didn't turtle. That being said, this has to be a nomination for "Beatdown of the Year." John Scott just annihilated him and I don't see how anyone could have ranked this a draw or a win to Westgarth. He got beaten and bloodied soundly, and just taking it like a man doesn't equate to "win" Domination Scott.
Saw this in person. What a mess. Give Westie credit for hanging in there with the big boys, but I'm not sure I've ever seen a clearer decision than this.
Pretty sure Westgarth taps out in the end!
John Scott with the dominating win
Wow - big bad John!
Big win for Scott
Two things can come from this: Either Westgarth learned his lesson and will not mess with John Scott again, or Westgarth will want revenge and will be beaten bloody a second time.
