Love to see non-fighters in a hatefest. Some serious punches thrown by both, but none seemed to be of much value.

Gallagher a little chippy with the stick on the faceoff,, Namestnikov takes exception and jumps him. Despite the advantage in size and dropping the gloves first Vladi gets tko'd after an uppercut or three from Gally. Think he's been playing around with Prust in practice as he looked pretty good out there. Would have like to see him hold off on the shot when vlady fell to the ice briefly. Guess he was pretty fired up. Anyone who gave the fight to vlady is pretty anti-habs, as that was a clear victory for gally. If you disagree, try watching the video again and taking off the "I hate Montreal" glasses you're wearing.

TB fans claiming Gallagher used his stick inappropriately... After Namestnikov pulled his between the legs of gallagher. Starting to sound like Boston fans

NIce scrap!! Although Gallagher landed a stunner, Nemestnikov was able to gather his composure, and come back throwing. Nice scrap once again, but this one is a DRAW.

Gallagher with the win he lands 3 good shots

Posted by Stone55555 on March 16, 2015 at 09:49 PM

Gallagher get the win in a close one.

Posted by upbru on March 19, 2015 at 02:11 PM

Gallager got in the big bomb. That settles it. Only a non fan would vote otherwise.

Surprised at gally gettin some good hits in I thought it would have been a hugfest

The little rat Gallagher get beat here.

Vlad wins

Posted by francoisleroux on March 17, 2015 at 12:41 PM

Not sure what scrap habs fans are watching, it was close, but the Russian clearly won. Punches thrown after the zebras are in don't count! Best part of this video is the blonde in the top right at the 0:36 mark! Someone even commented that Gallagher was throwing uppercuts! Keep your eyes open next time you watch a fight! Gallagher landed one to the visor, Namestnikov landed 3-4 to the helmet.

Namestnikov got some good shots in early, then succumbed (more or less), but I give him the decision because he's a rookie and made a better than expected showing against Gallagher

Very entertaining, Namestnikov with a slight win!

Posted by kkdowning on March 17, 2015 at 01:38 PM

Two newbies with ill will! Not sure I can call a winner between them -- because we are all winners with this surprise of a fight!

Posted by mmadced on March 19, 2015 at 10:24 AM

gal gets his ass handed to him for the loss hattrick

Posted by SidKid87 on March 22, 2015 at 12:39 AM

NOT the little troll that resides in the Logo de Toilet Seat...

Posted by AxlRose91 on March 17, 2015 at 12:09 PM

Gallagher, like the dirty puke that he is, feeds a couple of shots in while his opponent is being held down on the ice by the refs. Unfortunately those were the only punches he landed. Easy win by the Russian over another gutless Hab

Battle of the featherweights.I'm enjoying this burgeoning rivalry, especially since the Bolts seem to own the Habs this season.

Posted by Jellyczar on March 17, 2015 at 08:57 AM

Russian wins in a spirited little bout...

Posted by ironbar44 on March 17, 2015 at 12:27 PM

i didn't see this as close as others

Posted by EK65 on March 17, 2015 at 12:49 AM

A couple of non fighters dropping the gloves in a pure hatred "slugfest" Not entirely the slugfest of Christian Thomas vs Matt Calvert but, definitely entertaining nonetheless. Watched this a few times and could see it go either way. Decided on 5 & Draw

Posted by English_Bruin on March 17, 2015 at 01:51 PM

Russian dude had the other fella up against the wall and let him go, held on for the win

Posted by tpr1960 on March 17, 2015 at 07:51 PM

Brendan Gallagher went to school with my lil sister, she used to beat him up almost every day.

Posted by dkdanielkli on March 16, 2015 at 09:13 PM

Win Gallagher. Namestnikov sent more shots Brendan's way but I don't think anything landed. Gally with two big right to knock the helmet of Vlad. Give it a 5.5 and win Gally.

Angry fellows chunking knucks

Posted by mikebflorida on March 17, 2015 at 10:05 AM

Vlady answers the bell after another Hab uses his stick as a weapon(and naturally doesn't get called for it) but in his first NHL fight, he starts off ok only to bang the sh1t out of Gallagher's hat and the little guy answers with a few pops for the win.

Posted by dean94harrison on March 16, 2015 at 10:54 PM

Close fight, gotta give it to Namestnikov for being willing to go.

Posted by kwood523 on March 16, 2015 at 09:52 PM

Vlad all the way held his own and threw the punches! Gallagher didn't throw much.

Posted by Great Murray on March 17, 2015 at 05:31 AM

The Russian wins this pretty easily. He doesn't have much technique and he better avoid the real fighters because he will get smoked. But he is too much for Gallagher. 5
