Other Penalties: Phillips received an instigator, unsportsmanlike conduct and misconduct; Haley a charging.
W Haley. Phillips did the right veteran thing, sticking up for a teammate. On the other hand, I don't think it was a dirty hit.
props to a non fighter like PHILIPS to stick up for his team mate with a guy who is strictly a fighter.. BICKEL classless .i like BICKEL always game .this was a punk move on his part.
Let this be a lesson to you all... if you throw a questionable hit against Ottawa... somebody's gonna get hugged!
i wouldn't call that charging...looked like a solid hit. then some pussy wearing a visor comes and challenges and gets beaten. what's with all these people fighting after clean hits this year?
Not exactly Haley's comet but he did do enough and land a few to get the win. Kudos to Philips for sticking up for his teammate. Funny how he gets the instigator ( well deserved). But some how Adam McQuaid and all the bruins seem to usually avoid them. Think about how many times a Bruin comes to the aide of his teammate and there are never any repercussions in the way of supplemental..........anyway just saying..........
Where the hell was Neil ?? How come he didn't go after Haley later in the game. Was he chicken?. As good as Neil is Haley would have cleaned his clock, he's a buzz saw. Neil goes after non-fighters like Grabovski. Hey Neil, you're an embarrassment and a joke. Next time Frazer McClaren will knock you out too!
Somebody should explain to Phillips that if you are going to get 2+2+5+10 for instigating a fight with a sheild on, you should drop the mitts first and actually throw some punches. Hard to stick up for your team mate when you only dance.
That a boy Haley, I'm glad to see him back up in the NHL, very tough kid and he knows how to throw them. Great to start it off. He looks like the fighter for the Rangers now... where has Arron Asham been?
Hey Rangers Fans, how'd the final score look? I think THAT'S why Philips fought. It was a game changer. I just checked Haley's stats, and I can see why he won. Brnin' up the points sheets ain't he? I'm sure Ottawa will take the two points from the Rangers, and say see ya in the playoffs...maybe... :)
edge haley in a wrestling match
Why does phillips bother.hey i like phillips but come on.haley dominated.Haley isnt a big guy and has battled hard for years in the minors
Obviously, fighting isn't really Phillips' strong suit. But he stands up for a younger teammate after he gets nailed with a nice, big, clean hit. Easy to give the win to Haley, though.
Chris Phillips, who averages one fight every five years, took on Haley for the hard hit on O'Brien. It was a dumb move and Phillips didn't win the fight. Bickel was trying to agitate Gryba into fighting so the Sens would be two defensemen down.
I knew before I watched the fight that Haley had to be the winner.I have been argueing against clean hit penalties all year.But this one was a penalty Haley took about 7-8 strides with a good 15-17 feet in front of him.That would have been charging in the 40`s-50`s-60`s-70`s-80`s-90`s- and you get the picture.Phillips tryed but got his assed kicked for being a good team mate.The annoucer kills me it was a shoulder to shoulder hit as were watching Haley shift both of his forearms to the right.The only reason he didn`t hit his head is because Haley was to short to do so.
Haley wins for his hit before the fight, but the real winner is the guy holding the flamingo on the second row.
Let this be a lesson to all of you, NO VISOR INSTIGATING!
Haley with the easy win after a CLEAN hit..
Hey Phillips if your going to get an instigator try throwing a few punches d!ckhead. Typical Senator p*ssy - this is what happens to a team when you have a guy like Alfreddson as your captain
LOL @ Behn Wilson... Good to see Haley back, You have some interesting company in this wt.class, In no particular order - Prust, Tootoo, Rinaldo, Brown and Haley.
Phillips went to a gun fight with his Gideon Bible. Haley makes a clean hit (could have been interference) and then clean Phillips' clock!
phillips needs to practice getting the gloves off.
Surprised Haley didn't actually clean his clock, Philips should be happy with this!
How do you get an instigator when you dont drop your gloves for the first half of the fight?
doing the right thing the wrong way. lose the shield if you are going to instigate the fight. win Haley.
Phillips, always trying to be a tough guy. He's shocked that someone took him up on his usual fake offers. He didn't know what to do.....duh....still had his gloves on figuring everyone would take it easy on him. Not so here. Someone beat his azz for a change. Stop trying to be a tough guy Phillips!!. Try that against McLaren, he'll give your fellow Drip guy, a bedside partner with you.
How does Phillips get an instigator here? Haley had his gloves off and was throwing punches before Phillips had even dropped his stick!
clean hit, typical over reaction ... but Haley is a gutter rat ...
Yikes !! Haley is a buzzsaw, one dimensional player who has had more fights just getting to the rink than Phillips had in his career. I like Phillips (and love his restaurant in Ottawa - best pizza ever) but geeeez that smelled a tad.
Phillips sure isnt a fighter. NobodyHughCares, Alfredsson is 10x the captain Mr Facewash Sundin was. Nice of the big puss to leave T.O. hanging eh?
Haley had his gloves off before Phillips was anywhere near him....no instigator should have been called however there should always be a penalty for fighting with a visor
What were you thinking Phillips.
With the fight result not in question, I was anxious to see what the posters had to say about the original hit by Haley. Of course by doing so I knew I would be subjected to droning one note song of Custombreaks and Boldbilly as they weakly try to inject some Bruins bashing into every single post they make. Man, talk about a tired act.
The refs must have thought Greg Campbell joined the Blue shirts. Haven't seen phonie calls like that since the 2011 playoffs. The NHLOA is a big fat crooked joke.
Haley's Comet lights up O'Brien, and regardless of his vertical challenge, the shorter man is able to throw up and under the shielded Phillips...
Was at this game. Great momentum change because of this fight. Win Haley
Maybe Phillips should challenge someone his own size. Oh wait, he couldn't even handle Haley who is half his size.
good thing for that visor
I don't really see how Phillips standing up for a teammate in this fashion will deter someone like Haley -- as not only does he lay out the Senator on the hit, Haley wins the fight and takes out one of the Senators best d men for 19 minutes. If you are going to stand-up for a teammate, win the fight!
Bunch of homers voting here, Phillips had the better shots in.
Very questionable hit. Win to Chris Phillips
The best part of that is when Bickell was taunting Gryba and trying to get him to go and Gryba looked like he was going to cry.
phillips didnt drop his gloves till the fight was over. that was just embarrassing for an old vet like that. been playing hockey for 35 years and the guy doesnt know how to drop his gloves in a fight.
