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.

Posted by Zarley Z on November 15, 2013 at 08:03 AM

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.

Posted by LGR72 on November 15, 2013 at 02:29 PM

I don't know how this rates around a 6. A couple good punches by Sobotka and that's about it.

Posted by Icedknuckles on November 14, 2013 at 10:43 PM

Not a bad fight for the combatants involved albeit short. Duchesne appeared to land a good one before Sobotka landed a better one.

Posted by slysi on November 15, 2013 at 07:28 PM

sobotka caught duchene with a couple of quick punches and it was over

Posted by Behn Wilson on November 15, 2013 at 09:27 AM

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

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on November 14, 2013 at 11:28 PM

not bad by 2 non fighter

Posted by GreatMurray on November 15, 2013 at 08:45 PM

Sobotka only lands one but it was a good one!

Posted by SEMO_Yogi on November 15, 2013 at 11:28 AM

Boy...these announcers are homers. Pretty easy win for the Sobotka.

Posted by Mark1967 on November 15, 2013 at 11:53 PM

Vlad got mad and the win!

Posted by Orr Fourever on November 15, 2013 at 07:02 AM

Win for the ex bruin Sobo.

Posted by King of Goons on November 17, 2013 at 05:13 PM

Vladimir Sobotka beats the hell out of Matt Duchene's face. Hey Matt, stick to scoring. Fighting is not for you, ...Princess.

Posted by rprice1981 on November 14, 2013 at 10:53 PM

Not an awesome scrap but Vladi got a few more bigger hits!

Posted by barks1513 on November 19, 2013 at 10:03 PM

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.

Posted by Durango 95 on November 15, 2013 at 05:34 AM

Win Sobotka....looks like he got a stinger in

Posted by LetsGoBlues22 on November 15, 2013 at 08:31 AM

Vladi Sobotka showing why he is pound for pound one of the toughest guys in the NHL. Good on ya.

Posted by phuckyouguys on November 15, 2013 at 02:58 PM

wow colorado got a beat down last night :/

Posted by kingpintoo on November 16, 2013 at 05:52 PM

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.

Posted by Phyrkrakr on November 15, 2013 at 04:32 PM

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.

Posted by mattsquadcar on November 15, 2013 at 11:09 AM

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

Posted by PeacockJac on November 14, 2013 at 11:26 PM

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.

Posted by hypnos on November 15, 2013 at 07:17 AM

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 :)

Posted by oldfiredog on November 15, 2013 at 11:29 AM

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.

Posted by DARCY T on November 15, 2013 at 06:13 AM

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 sobotka

Posted by JoeBlue on November 14, 2013 at 11:36 PM

Duchene poked the wrong bear. Win for the little guy.

Posted by Kenney21 on March 10, 2014 at 08:56 PM

Duchene looked like a rag doll there. Easy win for the little guy with gumption!

Posted by Sea-Cow on November 16, 2013 at 05:57 PM

Somehow, I just don't think Duchene did as much MMA training as Sobotka since the last time they fought.

Posted by Amerkfan8 on November 15, 2013 at 11:13 AM

Duchene got clocked there.

Posted by dustyknuckles on November 18, 2013 at 08:43 PM

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

Posted by srehm1 on November 16, 2013 at 11:25 AM

Sobotka landed the only shots of consequence here.

Posted by rocky 1 on November 15, 2013 at 04:47 PM

The Russian wins!

Posted by bobowen34 on November 15, 2013 at 07:47 AM

Sobotka with the beat down.

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on November 21, 2013 at 08:51 PM

The Tiny Tazmanian Devil goes to town on Duchene. We still miss Sobotka here in Boston.

Posted by Kordic64 on November 16, 2013 at 09:01 PM

Seriously? A six? Way to high of a rating!!!

Posted by Nick80 on November 15, 2013 at 01:31 AM

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?

Posted by st. bernard on November 15, 2013 at 03:01 PM

Sobotka rang Duchene's bell.

Posted by BlackandBlues on November 15, 2013 at 12:29 AM

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.

Posted by rynlds2 on November 23, 2013 at 08:36 AM

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!

Posted by FHgrad99 on November 14, 2013 at 10:52 PM

This was a pretty energetic, yet brief fight. Sobotka gets a win in a close fight.

Posted by Humper on November 15, 2013 at 05:13 PM

St Louis up 5-1 on the scoreboard and 2-0 for fights.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on November 15, 2013 at 11:16 PM

Sobotka dotted Duchene right between the eyes!

Posted by kkdowning on November 16, 2013 at 05:21 PM

Vlady gives Duchene a thumping. Roy could not be happy with the fight or the score

Posted by Wooly on November 15, 2013 at 06:53 PM

Clear win for Sobotka. Duchene gave it the old no mas

Posted by Ratank on November 16, 2013 at 10:50 AM

Sobotka, one of the best pound for pound.

Posted by jimmat on November 14, 2013 at 11:18 PM

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

Posted by Blasa3 on November 15, 2013 at 12:27 AM

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

Posted by jaybird6401 on November 15, 2013 at 09:38 AM

Haha love Vladi. Hope he is a blue for life. He made Douche his b!-ch

Posted by Razor73 on November 15, 2013 at 03:54 AM

One lucky punch from Sobotka. Draw.

Posted by sedinfan on November 14, 2013 at 10:34 PM

Sobotka with the edge in the featherweight division.
