Vladi with the forehead shot that makes Duchene quit. Sobotka, pound for pound, is one of the strongest players in the league, hits like a little tank.
Vlad impales MD
Another Avalanche player down.....Sobotka is by far my favorite player on the Blues. High energy, finishes his checks, throws punches.
Sobotka trains in the offseason in a Czech MMA gym. Tough little dude. Someone should have told one of the best young player in the league that this isn't a good idea.
I don't know how this rates around a 6. A couple good punches by Sobotka and that's about it.
Not a bad fight for the combatants involved albeit short. Duchesne appeared to land a good one before Sobotka landed a better one.
sobotka caught duchene with a couple of quick punches and it was over
Let me try this using old Habs' references... You're built like Mats Naslund you look like Petr Svoboda you hit like Larry Robinson and you fight like Kent Carlson???... .I'm officially a fan
Sobotka with a right to the forehead that drops Duchene. Win Sobotka
not bad by 2 non fighter
Sobotka only lands one but it was a good one!
Boy...these announcers are homers. Pretty easy win for the Sobotka.
Vlad got mad and the win!
Win for the ex bruin Sobo.
Vladimir Sobotka beats the hell out of Matt Duchene's face. Hey Matt, stick to scoring. Fighting is not for you, ...Princess.
Not an awesome scrap but Vladi got a few more bigger hits!
Sobotka trained for two years for the moment he could payback Matty for beating him in their first fight. Quick, good, close. Even match with slight edge to Sobotka with the win.
Win Sobotka....looks like he got a stinger in
Vladi Sobotka showing why he is pound for pound one of the toughest guys in the NHL. Good on ya.
wow colorado got a beat down last night :/
It was a fun game to be close to the ice. Love it. Vlad won the middle weight bout of the Blue Gloves competition in a Blues' sweep of all four bouts, the last being the game beat down. Colorado looked like they were smoking that legal Colorado pot prior to the game. They just didn't go hard but kept going thinking something would change if they kept doing the same thing over and over.
I watched this one live, and the Blues feed had a better camera angle and showed more of it. Duchene was missing with his punches while Sobotka got 3-4 good shots right on the top of Duchene's dome after the helmet came off. Duchene was game, that's for sure, but if you're going to fight somebody, it helps if you can actually land some punches. Would've been a lot closer if one or two of Duchene's first throws had landed or a couple of Sobotka's had missed before the takedown.
Razor73 you are a complete moron. Lucky shot my ass. Did you see the other punches landed? Duchense got what he had coming for grabbing Sobotka like that. Favorite player to watch
It sure seemed like Sobotka pulled Duchene off the ice to actually get the fight started. Lucky that last one didn't land a couple of inches lower. I like the short ones with a lot of energy. 6.
what was duchene thinking in there? still, he managed to throw some punches. nice to see sobotka get on with it once again. way to go, vlado :)
I'm thinking that Duchene was shock at the ferocity from Sobotka. I think he went after a little guy expecting a meek response. He didn't get what he expected. I suspect he will think twice before he opens the Sobotka door again.
haha duchene's 2nd nhl fight and it's with sobotka again.sobotka is a small european non-fighter but i believe he is one of the best fighting non-fighters....win sobotka
Duchene poked the wrong bear. Win for the little guy.
Duchene looked like a rag doll there. Easy win for the little guy with gumption!
Somehow, I just don't think Duchene did as much MMA training as Sobotka since the last time they fought.
Duchene got clocked there.
i get why duchey was pissed about dirty run.. to bad he got spun around he landed one or two decent and took a few back had the makes of a decent fight off get go then no... win sobotka
Sobotka landed the only shots of consequence here.
The Russian wins!
Sobotka with the beat down.
The Tiny Tazmanian Devil goes to town on Duchene. We still miss Sobotka here in Boston.
Seriously? A six? Way to high of a rating!!!
Win Sobotka, though it's closer than I thought it'd be. How can you not love the way he plays the game! Avs on the PP and Duchene fights?
Sobotka rang Duchene's bell.
Duchene skated away under his own power, and never missed a beat. Didn't miss any of those punches either. Sobotka with a violent W.
Someone forgot to tell Duchene that Vladi will through down with anyone, any size, any time, and win 99% of the time! Scrapy little dude!
This was a pretty energetic, yet brief fight. Sobotka gets a win in a close fight.
St Louis up 5-1 on the scoreboard and 2-0 for fights.
Sobotka dotted Duchene right between the eyes!
Vlady gives Duchene a thumping. Roy could not be happy with the fight or the score
Clear win for Sobotka. Duchene gave it the old no mas
Sobotka, one of the best pound for pound.
Duchene lands a good one, Sobotka lands a better one. That was some shot. Made Duchene decide he'd had enough. Enjoyed this one from the lightweight division. Gave it a 6 for the bad intentions displayed. What a night for the Avs...yikes
Duchene is pretty dumb to pick sobotka for a scrap. He would have been better off skatin away. Sobotka is one of the most under rated players in the league by far. He hits, he plays d, he kills penalties, he's got great decisions with the puck, great patience and oh yeah for his size he's one of the toughest players in the league. I especially liked how he just rag dolled him
Haha love Vladi. Hope he is a blue for life. He made Douche his b!-ch
One lucky punch from Sobotka. Draw.
Sobotka with the edge in the featherweight division.
