The Break Down

A fight off the faceoff dot early in a 2-1 game. Chris Stewart having spent all of last year in the UK, he had just signed a contract with the Flyers three games previous. The two square off and glide together from their stances.

Stewart starts it off with a quick left as he goes to grab Jamie Oleksiak. The big Oleksiak then lets his right hands fly throwing about nine punches (landing to varying degrees) in succession before Stewart responds. Stewart throws a couple before they distance themselves a bit and start to rotate. Both then start punching with Stewart landing the better of the flurry. They come in close and Stewart clenches Oleksiak's head and throws off the helmet. They then separate again and Oleksiak begins an exchange of punches before a left from Oleksiak starts the "timber" of both combatants, Stewart on top. The linesmen step in.

The fight breakdown

After seeing what appeared to be a vicious check from behind in real time, you understand Chris Stewart wanting to have a little piece of Cole Bardreau. But for with Ross Johnston on the ice it was only a matter of time for the two to meet up and have it out, with already sitting in the box earlier in the game for roughing. Johnston comes into the melee and grabs Stewart (who seemed to be looking for Ross) and it's go time

They hug up immediately and separate from the pack of players, and then the gloves come off over the top. Stewart fires off a right first before Johnston comes back with a couple of his own. Johnston then tries to go under Stewart's left arm as they skate away from the boards. Both guys have pretty good control of the others arms and so the struggle is real in this one. Not many big landings before they go down to the ice and the linesmen pile on.
