1pd 06:48 Darcy Hordichuk (ARI) Jody Shelley (CBJ)
Comments: Nice fair square off. Hordichuk dives in head down in an attempt to grab on. Shelley grabs his shoulders. Hordi is able to come in with a right that glances off Shelley's helmet and Jody follows by doing the same. A weak right by Hordichuk misses everything and then he evades a Shelley right. Poor camera angle now. Looks like Darcy lands a straight right to the face. Both guys throw rights that ain't doing nothing. They're going toe to toe now. Rights in stereo land from both combatants: Hordi to the face and Shelley to the helmet. Shelley lands a forearm to Hordichuk's helmet. Darcy needs to get his head up, he must be having nightmares of Anglestad... A right from Darcy gets nothing. And again. Shelley's elbow pad has come down over his right hand. Jody tries what looks to be an uppercut which just misses and allows Hordichuk to nearly land a brutal left cross; It may have skipped across Jody's nose. They both fire again: Jody with the right which misses and Darcy with the left which may have landed. Damned camera angle obscures the punch. Jody fires two more rights but they're just not on target. Hordichuk is landing a couple of rights in the meantime. They both go with rights again and neither seem to connect, but Hordichuk starts to go off balance in the exchange. Off balance, Darcy lands a heavy right to the helmet and his teetering helps him avoid a Shelley right. Both guys are in the spin cycle and fire. Hordichuk misses with the left and Shelley with a nothing right. Jody comes again with a heavy right to the shoulder and then with a big right to the mush. That may have stunned Darcy as he appears to buckle a little and goes down. Jody has grabbed on and falls on top of his opponent. The linesmen are in now and it is over. Not much grabbing here folks.

1pd 07:22 Kelly Buchberger (ARI) Sean Pronger (CBJ)
Comments: Fair square off in the corner. Buchberger grabs on to Pronger jersey at the throat. Pronger pushes a weak left as Kelly comes in which ain't doing nothing. Buchberger winds up and thows a vicious right, but Sean sees it coming and ducks out of the way. Pronger ends up bent over and down on one knee. Buchberger winds up again with the right and fires, but it comes up short due to Pronger's long reach locking him out. Pronger is back to his feet. A wild right cross from Pronger is evaded. He fires again with the right and clips the bridge of Kelly's helmet. Pronger has the right free and Buchberger look to be in trouble. Sean wants to go with another right but goes off balance a bit. This gives Buchberger a chance with his right, but he's still locked out and it never reaches it's target. A wild right again from Buchberger clips across Pronger's helmet as Sean turns away. Pronger tries a weak uppercut which appears to land in Kelly's jersey somewhere. Pronger looks huge next to Buchberger. A bit of stalling as both guys show a little apprehension. Pronger has a left hand full of jersey and feeds it into Kelly's mouth with no damage. Oooh, there it was! Out of nowhere Pronger lands a straight right to Buchberger's jaw and he crumbles to the ice. Pronger goes down on top, but refrains from any more punches. The linesmen are in quickly. It's over.

1pd 07:48 Branko Radivojevic (ARI) Jamie Allison (CBJ)
Comments: This one starts behind an altercation between Dineen, Grand-Pierre and Focht. Don't know what Radi was thinking, because this fight is all Allison. He throws about 12 unanswered lefts while Radivojevic hangs on for dear life. Finally Allison wears out, they wrestle for a while, Radi waits for the linesmen to get done separating Grand-Pierre and Focht so they can come over and get him out of trouble. Other Penalties: Dan Focht received a double roughing; JLGP a roughing.

1pd 13:31 Ossi Vaananen (ARI) Tyler Wright (CBJ)
Comments: Vaananen takes exception to a wild hit by Wright and drops him behind the play, they both drop the gloves quickly and grab on for dear life. Wright is not known for his fighting, but does a credible job in the wrestling match to rip Vaananen's helmet off so he can take a few swings at his head with his left. Wright landed the only blows of the bout, including opening a cut on Vaananen's cheek. Other Penalties: Vaananen received an instigator, unsportsmanlike conduct, double cross checking and misconduct.
