Other Penalties: Bryce Salvador received a misconduct.
Anyone that gives Bickel the win is clearly stupid, watch the replay guys Carter had the most shots on him and was dominating until he slipped and then like an asshole Bickel throws Carter's head into the ice which is why he draws blood. 90% of the people that gave Bickel the win did it because they saw blood and didn't watch the whole fight! I gave Carter the win because he gets the best shots in before slipping.
Damage to both so have to go with a draw.
Carter beat the stuffing out of Dubinsky 2 weeks ago breaking his nose. He could be a real tough light heavyweight for the Devils. I got it as a draw but Bickel drew big blood.
I just have no friggin' idea what all happened here. Calling this a draw. I'd like to know how Carter got cut so bad, but it seemed that it was probably his face bouncing off the ice. What a friggin' start, wow.
Can't find a winner in this one. The blood came from Carter hitting the ice...no points for that. What a fight....what a game...in a night full of stinkers.
Holy shit was that great or what!Welcome back to the 1970,s boys .Give it a draw!
as a big Rangers fan i loved these fights. ill give stu bickel vs ryan carter a draw
Hands down THE GREATEST START TO A HOCKEY GAME OF ALL TIME! That was amazing. 3/3 for Jansen and Rupp starting off their last 3 games here with a fight. Last time we had Rupp and Jansen go, while Boulton and Prust went. i like Rupp vs Boulton and Prust vs Jansen much more. I have to give all of this an overall 10. Carter and Bickel had the best fight. Gave that a draw with edge to Bickel. Prust and Jansen was a draw and Rupp had the edge over Boulton. Amazing!
All hockey games should start like this. I wish my Stars would do this to the panzy ass sharks the next time we play.
Um, I am not sure what fight I am watching. I am going to say a draw simply because I am not sure who is who when the camera cuts away. Too hard to keep track of who lands on who. Still, an interesting way to start the game.
This would be a win for Carter the way it started...he landed some nice shots. After Bickel lost his balance he landed a big bomb to open up Carter. You guys need to watch more carefully. There is blood on the ice from Carter before he hits the ice. Lots of idiots thinking the ice did the damage. I could see draw to edge for Bickel. Oh and tpr1960 sucks!
win bickle. man bickle can take a punch. carter with a nasty cut. both guys take damage.
easy win for the fighting pickel.. if your teammate comes to your rescue and gets a 3rd man in--you lose! off for repairs goes carter! philly is a dirty, dirty town...
Shoulda left the wide angle, hard to score all the fights with all the camera changes? Stu Bickel's first career face off, lol. By the way, Jiggs McDonald used the reverse argument about who submits the starting line up when Kocur fought Baumgarter in the early nineties. Guess its always the Rangers fault. Since when was Dubinsky a Left Dman?
How can bickle not be a clear winner!! carter is turtling on the floor bleeding like hes been shot. Forget that carter did well early. If thats a street fight carter is dead. Get it clear ladies - if the last punch splits your head, you have to turtle, get saved by refs, then immediately go for stitches - YOU LOST.
Bickel takes a few and then lands a huge one that splits Carter open and drops him. DeBoer got what he asked for.
best way to start a hockey game, luv it
I wish every game started like this.
Carter was bleeding BEFORE he went down at the end. He got hit with a big punch as the two of them were getting up after going down the first time.
I knew you idiots were gonna say this. You must have obviously listened to your blind idol Emerick the homer saying the damage was caused by the ice. It is plain as day to see Bickel lands a right to the top of carters shnozz and before carter goes down, you can see blood already flowing off his face. Open your eyes you devil losers. Also, if youre planning on riding marty in the playoffs, enjoy your very short, old and fat ride.
Coach of the year for Torterella for sending a defenceman to take the openning faceoff. Carter chews on a big right and hits the ice. Rangers take all 3 fights
Devils strategy really backfired here. About as evenly matched 6 players as you can have. Here Bickel reminds me of an adrenaline junky, lanky but crazy. Carter was better early on, but don't let the announcer fool you, as he's praising Carter's two rights Bickel is answering. The last right prior to the fall / cut by Stu was the best in the bout. Stu and a 7
bickel gets the win in this fight.
Bickel by far gets the upper hand. Payback for Dubinski?
Bickel and Carter only one to take helmuts off!!Both got some quality shots in,but Bickel drew the most blood!!Slight edge to Bickel!!
Carter goes down after Bickel connects with a hard tight right hand as soon as they both catch their footing.. Edge to Bickel no doubt
Really good tilt. Cudos to both guys. Drop em, rock em, sock em. Good fight. Win Bickel.
Lots of blood was lost in that battle, Credit Bickle wit the victory,
Carter and Bicks trade back and forth with Carter scoring some good ones early and then Bickle ends it with a bomb that opens Carter up and and puts him to the ice...good fight
Bickel looked like a surgeon, opening Carter up where he wanted.Good bout.Bickel wins.
http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/rangers/tortorella_puts_fight_in_rangers_Eg8oRHcuyFauPYtXlxlhHJ Carter cut by fall to ice........right. tpr and penguin cup= idiots.
For those of you who voted for carter your wrong. I was at this game and Carter did hit Bickel but Bickel gets up and nails carter with a right hand over his eye causing the cut. You can't see from the angle shown here.
Carter wins about 90% of this fight and does alot of damage to Bickel before Bicks lands a solid one at the end that destroys Carters nose. Win Bickel because of that last shot that ends the fight.
A classless move, by a classless player, by a classless coach, by a classless organization. There is a reason the Rags have only one 1 cup in 70 years and have spent tons of money and outspent most teams in tryign to do so. Bickel will be like Colton Orr in two years a minor leaguer with brain damage.....nice move Torts
Loved this! The pu**y-fa****s will hate it but they're not the ones who play the game!
Gave this one to Bickel. Tough to call all three fights at once, but the huge shot Bickel lands seems to buckle Carter. What a war between two pretty tough teams. Olde Tyme Hockey.
For all those who claim Carter got cut by the fall, watch the video and notice blood drops before the fall. The cut was DEFINITELY from Bickel's punch. Once again, watch the blood spill before the fall.
There will be blood
Bickel wins and if not by TKO, then it's at least a 10 to 8 round. Carter was done after the big (short) right.
Carter early, Bickel late. A couple of big rights from Stuuuuuuu at the end that make me give him the nod.
I don't know what fight you guys are watching. Carter doesn't get cut when he hits the ice. Look again closely at 2:48 in the replay of the fights. Carter catches a clean right cross to the face as soon as they get up the first time. Watch the trail of blood on the ice just before Carter goes down for good. He got cut by that cross before he goes down at 2:50. Full line brawl, full line win. Go blue!!
Bickel looked like he'd been nicked while shaving while sitting in the Sin Bin, and Carter looked like a facial blood donor. Props to Bickel and Carter for the lid toss, THAT'S THE WAY IT SHOULD BE DONE! Carter got some "large rights" on Bickel, but Bickel rearranged Carter's face at the end. As far as the amount of O-Pos left on the ice, as well as the full-on ground and pound Bickel gave Carter, I give a lopsided win to Bickel.
Great tilt! Way to start off a rivalry game! These two teams probably won't face each other in the playoffs, so last game between the two this year. Can't wait to see some of the matchups next year. The NHL should schedule at least 2 home and home's with these two teams!
Close... But Bickel gets the edge in this one!
This is how hockey should be played. Beat your opponent down, score and win. Simple.
Man, I wish John Scott would have been out there tonight. He would have beat the pulp out of any of those three. I guess it doesn't matter. This is what hockey is all about. One more reason I am a proud Rangers fan.
Carter started off well but Bickel kept throwing bombs pay back for carter
just a blood bath
great fight carter strong start bickel finished with strong right an busted carter open blood was pouring down before carter hit the ice anyone who says they dont know where all the blood came from did not record the game
if you were to actually not be a devs fan and slow it down, you see blood on the ice away from where carter's face landed. right before he went down stu landed a huge right hand, which is what sent him sprawling on the ice. carter did have it early, but ask chuck liddell after his last mma fight, all it takes is that one punch. bickle wins but not by much.
im giving this one to carter for the simple reason that Bickel decided he was gonna hit carter while he was face down on the ice covered up. if it wasnt for that poor sportsmanship i would have given it to bickel
After finally seeing this fight all by it self I would say Carter won this fight.He landed about 4-5 shots to Bickels face then got knocked over for the bloody nose by the ice.Why was Bickel trying to hit him while he was down.Because he just thought he got his butt kicked. Whats with the Rangers coach acting so suprised this is all happening you only lead the NHL in fighting Majors.
Ahhh the good old' days... Bickel, the centerman version, eventually, ''ice slams'' Carter, in a bloody attempt to re-introduce the red line... but not before the latter lands some serious, nose-altering, blows. ''Fonzi'' and DeBoer would have been the highlight, but still... good, clean, fun was had by all.
Bickel's bush move at the end is suspenable
Unfortunately....the camera angles were not the best....Bickel's face showed that Carter got some good shots in. Even Pierre McGuire called that from ice level....Carter was opened by the fall and Bickel landing on top of him...That is what the replay showed. Watch the fall...then the blood.. Other fights Prust - Janssen Draw Rupp - Boulton Draw
I give this to Carter. Bickel didn't do anything really until Carter was on the ice then Bickel was punching him. That is where Carter was cut. Carter busted open Bickel as well with some big punches. Great fight by the guys but Carter with the win.
Good scrap. Carter landed huge. Can't understand why so many of you think Bickel won this fight. Strange.
Don't let the blood at the end fool you. Carter destroyed Bickel in this fight. Not even clear how Carter got cut, but it might have been just at the end when Bickel uses his significant size advantage to dump Careter and then cheap shot hi when he's down. They showed Bickel's face later in the game and he was cut in 3 different spots. Bickel has fought the last two games, with a 6 inch and height and 50 pound weight advantage in each and got abused in both of them. Wuss.
You gotta love Bickel taking the faceoff. Carter early Bickel late and on the ground. Think I'll call it edge to Carter.
carter from what ive seen won this fight easely...dont be fool with the blood, it came at the end when he hit is head on the ice. win carter
Both TV (National) and Radio (here in NY) announcers pointed out how Carter was thrashing Bikel. After the fight you could see how dinged up Bickel was with three marks to face. This compares to one big cut on Carter from getting his head slammed on the ice, as Doc pointed out. Clear win to Carter
carter tuned up bickel pretty well.i didnt see that coming.carter was cut when he fell to the ice face first...win carter and i rated all 3 fights 7.actually i laughed when 6 guys dropped gloves straight away
cant even consider giving Bickel the win since he felt the need to keep beating on Carter when he was down on the ice.
Yup, Carter got bloodied, but that came after he knocked down Bickel and Bickel got up and threw Carter face down on the ice for stitches. Beforehand Carter walloped Bickel with a couple of rights. Bickel's face didn't look too hot either during the game.
Way to many Ranger fanatics on here. Homers. Carter landed much better & more often. Carters cut seems to be the result of his face being pushed into the ice. Bickel busted up over eye, cheek and chin from punches. Have to give this one to a Very Bloody Carter.
Carter got better after he got cut. Not sure why Bickel was throwing after they were both down....
These are the best games. Don't know why everyone gave it to Bickel, wondering if they were watching the right fight. Carter got the better hits and more had three strong rights in a row at one point, Bickels "comeback" was lame didn't land anything with force, not to say his arms didn't put in a lot of force just no solid connect. Carter went hard into the ice on the takedown, looked like he got hit a couple times after the takedown too(dick move), his team mate and the ref had to come over to stop it, that said carter win. Bickel<Carter<Ice (rough landing on the ice did most the damage to carter, not bickel)
carter bloodied by getting landed on, bickel bloodied from getting pounded on
I'll give it to Carter because he only got cut when he hit his head on ice.
Carter with the win if you watch the fight Bickel wins if you count Carter hitting his head on the ice
I was there, only watched Carter v. Bickel - win Carter, don't let the blood fool you it is ~90% from the Bickel cheap shot(s) after the fall. Bickel felt he had to go the extra mile cheaply because J.Torts called on him to take the F/O.
Carter landed on his face hard, which is where the damage came from. i kind of like the Rangers, but I am not sure what that loser Bickel was doing going after Carter when his face was squashed on the ice and there was blood all over the place. Bickells face showed he wasn't doing to well until Carter landed on his face. Those of you that voted for Bickell just because of all the blood on Carter better play it in slow motion and see how hard poor Carter hit the ice when he lost his balance.
This is great but where are these guys going to do once the playoffs start? It's not as if these guys are on the ice when it will be late in the game or overtime. Leave it up to tortilla or henry winkler or however you spell his name to melt-down. That is why the rangers will not go far, your coach is an a-hole. I'd give this to Carter as the other a-hole kept punching when both were down.
The Rangers should have received the instigator here don't you think. The Devils put out some tough guys to throw Tortorello off so Torts responds by instructing his players to fight en mass. Don't get me wrong, I will watch the Rangers and Devils beat each other bloody all day long but if the shitty rule exists they might as well call it when it is this obvious.
Carter win!! Bickel ate way to many
Carter wins. Bickle got one on the nose but carter got several good shots in.
Carter wins...the cut was from the hitting head on ice. Bickel was cut also from punches.
How can people say Bickel won? just cause Carter was bleeding. He hit his head on the ice. No solid punches for Bickel
I would give the ice a 10, he did a number on Carter. For the fight, I thought Carter got in more quality shots until he fell on his face.
carter one this tilly. the only reason why he was bleeding is because he hit his head n the ice when bother players fell. Carter for the win.
Only reason carter was bloody was from getting thrown into the ice. Bickels punches didn't leave a mark
Carter lands more on-target quality bombs... As for you "Code Whores", for the Love of O'Reilly a friggin fight is a fight... "its against the code" to hit a dude when he's down, "its against the code" to punch a guy when the jersey is over his head, "its against the code" to throw punches while on the ice WAHH WAHH WAHH... watch some fights from back in the day (80's, 70's) and players kept chucking until the Linesmaen came in a broke it up... do you know why?? CUZ IT WAS A FIGHT GIRLS, A FIGHT!!!
Sure, Carter was bleeding, but that's from hitting the ice as Bickel was cheaply hitting somone who's already on the ground (typical rangers). Now don't think I'm a homer because I think the Rangers are the lesser evil of these 2 teams, but you Ranger fans need to realize when you're beat. It's not fair to the people who are voteing honestly.
First, this type of fighting is not part of the game and the NHL needs to take steps to get it out - like suspend the coaches for several games. If they did this it would never happen again. That said, Tortorelli is the biggest loser in this fight for sending in a d-man to take the draw just to fight Carter. Had Dubinsky been in there like he should have it would have been another Carter v. Dubinsky result like the last one - see Hockey Fights on 3/6. But I guess Dubinsky wasn't up for another pounding! So instead Carter pounds Bickel until Bickel lands a cheap shot while Carter is on the ice. Bickel needs to learn the code - once he recovers from his pounding. Carter clear winner to everyone but Tortorelli and Rangers fans!
Though Carter ended up with worse cuts than Bickel, I think he landed more viscous throws so he gets the W. This was clearly the best fight out of the trio. I've said it before and I'l say it again, watch out for Ryan Carter in the future on this site. He's a great fighter and the devs are finally realizing it. He adds a great aspect to the team in bouts and when he's just out there with the 3rd or 4th line.
This was the pick of the bunch, Although Carter was leeking a lot, Bick's had some battle wounds to, good toe to toe battle which i'm calling a draw.
Blood does not automatically mean loss. Bickel starts with a cheep shot on the face off. Both delivered nice overhands. Draw.
Great old school hockey. This video should be sent to Shanahan,to remind him what hockey is. I hate the Devils and the Rangers, but they have shown they're the only 2 teams that won't adapt to this new NHL logic of eliminating violence. Whatever the reason, sometimes shit just has to happen.
Tough camera angles.Not much in the other 2 fights but Carter landed a few good ones and Bickel regroups and seemed to land a solid right that ended it and cut Carter good.Don't think the ice did.Very slight edge for Bickel.Hard puncher but has the Parros like balance problems...
What an awesome start to a hockey game. Torts vs Deboer was great. After Pierre gets over his man crush on Ryan Carter (?), Bickel answers back strong and cuts Carter wide open
Bickel and the Rangers again showing how classless they can be..
win Flic my Bic.......this was great.....Fonzie going bonkers
THIS IS HOCKEY! BICKLER!
Knocking Bickel down only makes him angrier...nice to see him fustigate Carter. Was at the game, so much blood at the time we weren't sure who was cut...
Wow.... Just wow. Gave this a 9 just for te whole situation itself. Props to the coaches for allowing it to go down. This was the best fight of the lot. Everything from the mutual lid toss to the bombs and damage caused from both fighters. Carter had the upper hand till that final shot by Bickel that leaked him. Carter was in no way disgraced and tho I was tempted to go draw u have to give it a win to Bickel. Great scrap from both tho. Respect. Rupp out points and undresses (!?) boulton Prust and janssen draw....
All Carter cut happened when he fell. Classy of Bickel to hit Carter on the ground.
The only punch Bickel landed cut Carter but still I give the fight to Carter, he landed more punches and Bickel's face didnt look any better after this tilt
Not a fan of either team, but except for the shot that got Carter bleeding, Carter pummeled Bickel in this fight. There must be a lot of Ranger fans voting cause Stu got whooped.
Going against the grain on this one and giving it to Carter. I think he got cut when he hit his face on the ice...could be wrong. Looked like Bickel got cut too. in any case, good fight.
watching this on nbc, carter got the jump and landed some nice shots. bickel got the one good one to split open carter right between the eyes...but later on they showed bickers face, he had three cuts and a bit of welt going. don't be fooled by the blood people, carter landed the most and better of the shots. what a great way to start the game.
I give this to Carter. He had the largest cut and spilled blood, but Bickel got three, that means a lot of Carter's puches connected. The most entertaining fight of the three.
giving it to Carter, as I think the ice caused the bleeding on Carter while the (small) bleeding on Bickel was from punches.
Gave this one an 8. Great fight, not sure why bickels throwing fists after carter was already down. Carter had it won until he let bickel back up and he connected with a big swing. Draw.
DRAW! Carter wasnt cut by any punches; He was cut when his face hit off the ice 0:47
