Other Penalties: Kulikov received a minor and misconduct for instigating a fight.
Foligno is a pure throwback player. All class and grit.
All Foligno ..... Kulikov got hammered
Nick always makes it a good one
Foligno early, Kulikov started coming back right before the refs came in
I hate these fights where a teammate goes to stand up for a another, but HAS NO business doing so. First off, the Nick Foligno hit didn't look to be anything major here. Granted we're not on the ice, but Scheflie seemed to get up juust fine with maybe a little acting. Then Kulikov jumps big Nick and does nothing but tuck his head in his lap. I know folks feel different about the Foligno boys, but they can rock it when needed. Nick was actually giving the guy a break when his jersey slipped up over his head, but the douche through a couple blind round houses and all that got him was some bangs from Foligno with no sense they were coming! lmao. Not the best fight, but I hold Kulikov responsible, should have left it alone and if it was such a big deal, let someone with some gruff get some payback. Interesting note, didn't realize the Jets are lacking toughness, holy cow. Frig Tanev, Lowry (maybe), Whats the deal with Byfuglien, didnt seem to be playing. Even ihes getting up there though, hasnt drop once yet, wow.
Foligno landed some pretty good shots early on and then he let up a little. Narrow win for Foligno.
More of a TKO, cheap shot by NF and he gets the early lead but DK lands three str8 bombs snapping NF head and the fight is over. NF skates off wobbled wondering WTF just happened. Nice job Kuly didn't think you had it in you!!!!
Foligno with the win. And he even took it easy on Kuligoof... @jimmymann8 you're on glue...
Did someone actually say Foligno looked wobbled? What were you watching? Lol. Easy win for Foligno. As for the hit on Sheiffle, it was intended to be a shoulder to shoulder hit. Sheiffle ducked it but didn’t get his leg out of the way. So he caused the awkward leg contact himself. Anyway, meh fight, Nick with an obvious win.
Looked like Foligno took a few punches that only made him mad, just because the refs didn't step in when the jersey was over Kulikov's head. It was one-sided and was about to get worse. Not a good matchup and went accordingly.
All Foligno whipping the Russian's ass.
Respect to Foligno for stopping after the jersey came up. Don’t blame him for the couple tossed in frustration.
foligno's facial expressions throughout are my fav part
Foligno was smart to stop talking and start punching. was handling Kulikov easy until three consecutive right crosses knocked him back despite the Jersey. A draw. Foligno 's hit was deserving of this fight. Doesn't matter if he meant to or not. He dragged his leg and kneed the best player on the Jets. Exactly why people should be punched in the face in the game of hockey.
Tbh Kulikov didn’t even have his tie down strap on because he wasn’t expecting too fight until he saw the cheap shot on Scheifele from Foligno. A Captain shouldn’t even make those type of hits anyways because there the big leader of the team. Grinders and enforcers usually make those hits. But Foligno is a bum I guess, nothing upstairs lol. Good on Kulikov for stepping in even though he only had 6 fights in his career. Draw on this one.
Foligno could have destroyed Kulikov.... first he waits for DK to take his glove off then he backs down when his jersey goes over his head. Could have been so much worse for DK.
Foligno domited this one. Kulikov is a typical Russia ....all talk and the gets his ass handed to him.
All foligno at the start,but kulikov finished strong even with his sweater over his head. Edge to foligno
OK fight. 5
