Time Away Home
1pd 06:36 Steve Moore (COL) Matt Cooke (VAN)
Comments: Right after the Worrell-May fight these two drop em. They grab on and Moore throws some weak right hands. Cooke is trying jersey-jabs. Moore throws a right hand and then Cooke throws a few rights of his own. Moore then gets the jersey up on Cooke, but Cooke is able to get his head out the bottom immediately. Moore gets in a few weak rights, Cooke connects with a decent left, and then Moore takes Cooke down.

Time Away Home
1pd 17:42 Rob Blake (COL) Jarkko Ruutu (VAN)
Comments: Ruutu wants this one. He's skating latched on the Blake and they take off the gloves and it is on. Blake starts with several left crosses and maybe one lands. Rutuu comes back with a right as they wrestle toward the boards. Blake's jersey gets tied up and his helmet is gone. He gets the left free and hits the glass with a left and then tosses another that misses. Rutuu gets a good grip with this left hand and then he starts with the rights. He tosses two that land. The first one puts Blake down. His head almost rams off the boards on the way down.
Voted winner: Jarkko Ruutu (74.5%) - Voted rating: 6.1

Time Away Home
1pd 18:03 Peter Worrell (COL) Brad May (VAN)
Comments: May tries to get Hinote to go before the draw, but Hinote doesn't bite. Next thing you know the puck is dropped and Worrell is climbing over the boards to answer May's challenge. May sees him and they immediately do another showboat square off. May throws a few lefts that don't do anything and then Worrell muscles him down to the ice.

Time Away Home
3pd 08:41 Kurt Sauer (COL) Brad May (VAN)
Comments: Bertuzzi challenges Moore all over the ice. Moore wants nothing to do with him. As Moore is skating away, Bertuzzi lands a gloved-sucker-punch to the side of Moore's face, knocking him out instantly. Moore falls face-first onto the ice with Bertuzzi on top of him. Others pile on, and everyone on the ice is getting together. Hedberg left his crease while all of this was going on and challenges Aebischer, but Aebischer simply pointed to the clock and wanted nothing to do with Hedberg. May finds Sauer for his third (and automically final) fight of the night. They grapple to start, then May gets loose and the camera pans away from the fight and the announcers say that May landed a huge left that hurt Sauer. The camera then goes back to the combatants, only to see May over Sauer. Other Penalties: Johan Hedberg received a goalie leaving the crease penalty; Todd Bertuzzi an attempt to injure; May a double game misconduct; Sauer a game misconduct.
Voted winner: Brad May (88.9%) - Voted rating: 4.9
