Other Penalties: Richards received an instigator and misconduct.
Richards really didn't have to exact revenge for what was a legal hit, especially when he winds up spilling his own blood.
In lieu of an actual policeman Richards steps up in an attempt to unnecessarily avenge a clean hit Unfortunately things quickly go from uninteresting to uneventful with neither combatant capable or qualified to properly engage the other
Another lame instigator penalty... No fight. Draw
Great clean hit by Folin......Richards bit off more than he could chew...Folin just too big and very effectively ties Richards up....so draw
A great, clean hit starts things off here Love the effort from Richards.. But Folin just out-muscled him Richards shoulda whispered in Clifford's ear That their superstar was just laid out Then MAYBE we woulda had a better fight
Big hit by Folin... followed by nothing... Richards stands up for Kopitar atleast.... I guess.... Another stupid instigator...
Wicked hit by Folin gets this so called scrap going. Richards stands up for Kopitar but is quickly on his knees. Draw.
richards came in steaming to punish folin's nice clean check on kopitar but folin didnt let that happen and subdued richards to the ice in his 1st nhl fight....draw
WWE wrestling for the draw!
good for that Folin kid. coming up from the NAHL to the big leagues? very very very few kids have done that considering the NAHL is a pretty shitty junior league compared to the USHL, OHL, WHL and QMJHL.
Richards does the right thing by trying to protect the Kings best forward, ...but who's going to protect Richards? Richards gets slightly mauled in this ridiculous wresting match. He should be thankful he didn't get his head smashed. Awesome hit by Folin.
richards is a punk thats why the flyers got rid of him
Richards jumped on him, and Folin still man handled him. Looks like he got an uppercut on him while he had him in a front headlock.
Right response by the wrong player. The hit was clean, but dangerous because of the angle and the location on the ice so the Kings have to send a message that you can't do that to Kopitar. Unfortunately Mike Richards is not the guy to deliver that message. Folin dominates this one.
Bitch Richards......this is what's wrong with hockey today.....a clean hit and a pussy comes slamming in only to hang on....Richards had no intention of really fighting. Stupid.....the look on Folin's face was great...."stay down bitch"
Richards is obviously out of his mind
King got crowned, not in a good way!
Proof that the instigator penalty punishes valor. Richards send's a buddy pass and makes Folin answer for hitting the star player. Gives the star more space, what can be better for the game... Prevents players from running around.
Usually when you instigate a fight, you actually try to fight the guy. I think Folin gets the win here, by using his huge body in an attempt to crush the smaller Richards. Kind of an entertaining bad fight.
Im giving Folin the fight because of the great hit, not the non fight.
Not much of a fight. Folin overpowered him.
What Behn Wilson said
Richards on the attack here, but doesn't really back it up. Tug of war between two, face shield, goombats. No winner here. Draw. Surprised Richards didn't get the snot knocked out of him, as most former , and current Flyers usually do.
