Smith early and Nurse late.Looks like one of Nurses punches landed flush on the nose of Smith and he had to leave with one sore nose.Gave it a Draw and an eight for the Big men!

nice start to the season. Me thinks we won't see many of these with the new NHL.

Posted by kkdowning on September 24, 2015 at 02:12 PM

Kudos to Nurse for standing up for himself. I will give Nurse the win for the fantastic facial expressions and using Smith's shield to open up Smith's nose.

call that dude a nurse

Posted by gpembert on September 22, 2015 at 05:28 PM

great heart shown by Nurse hung in there pounded the visor and cot Smith great thinking by a young and much smaller defensemen

Smith early nurse late pretty close fight smith had to leave early leaking all over

Posted by Truk on September 22, 2015 at 12:05 AM

Did Nurse answer the bell or what? He got tagged with a couple but had no problem flattening Smith's nose and turning the tap on. Smith won't be becoming an NHLer anytime soon. So Nurse who rarely fights has beat up two Flames already and the season hasn't even begun.

This might end up being one of the best fights of the pre-season. Close fight - I had Smith with the edge at first, then they traded blow for blow, Nurse drew blood. Solid Draw! Flames Fan but I think this will be nothing but beneficial for Nurse to make the Oilers squad! Makes me excited for the games this year!

Posted by bloodjick on September 26, 2015 at 05:11 PM

This one made me laugh, good bout no defense just throw them!

Posted by Great Murray on September 26, 2015 at 10:16 PM

FOY in preseason!!! This was a great fight! What a pair of warriors! Nurse drew blood but Smith landed more shots! Draw and I hope they stay in the SHOW!!!

Posted by nait on September 22, 2015 at 06:25 PM

nice comeback for Nurse

Posted by Jesticle on September 29, 2015 at 06:02 PM

Unbiased Canuck's fan says slight edge to Hunter Smith. Sorry Edmonton Homers, your beloved Nurse got beat up and tried to bite off a finger. Two tough dudes trading shots here. It's a shame they can't remove helmets to make it more even.

Posted by doobi1 on September 30, 2015 at 12:53 AM

Squeezing a guys nose to draw blood, does not constitute a win. Smith kicked a Nurse's ass. Gotta give a little credit though, Nurse sure has a hard head.

Posted by English_Bruin on September 22, 2015 at 03:00 PM

How can you wear a visor and still lose? Like 2 drunks outside a bar

Posted by Reaper10 on September 30, 2015 at 12:43 AM

Smith is a giant pussy who got his visor punched into his face. Good for Nurse hope is hand will be okay for a bout with someone his own size who will take the visor off. What is Smith 6'7" and wouldn't take the visor off to fight. Now we know what to think of him. Canadian team wonder what they think of him?

Posted by Ripper20 on September 25, 2015 at 12:31 PM

Looked like Nurse wanted nothing to do with the big fella, but I think we can all agree that we are happy he obliged. Smith was chuckling at him early, probably because of the initial futility of Nurse due to the reach of Smith. But Nurse chuckles last as he batters Smith's beak. Win to the Nurse!

Posted by paulhus611 on September 22, 2015 at 10:55 PM

Cant wait to see Nurse a full time Oiler!

Posted by bmacavilli on September 21, 2015 at 11:53 PM

Good tilt, pretty even, slight edge to Nurse

Posted by doctorvegas on September 29, 2015 at 10:39 PM

too much holding and not enough punches.

Posted by preciselyfun on September 23, 2015 at 06:57 PM

Good grief. Bunch of Coiler fanboys. See a little bit of blood and call that a loss? Fight was actually pretty close. To Papa Gecko and Truk - let's see you ass-hats in 6 months. Your team is still a bottom-feeder.

Posted by skenny999 on September 22, 2015 at 09:39 PM

Draw but edge to Nurse as Smith had to get his visor removed from his schnoze.

Posted by bigmike53 on September 26, 2015 at 12:17 AM

Good scrap with Smith taking charge early and Nurse winning the toe to toe exchange. Smith was leaking from the nose and this one is too close to call. Draw.

Posted by DARCY T on September 27, 2015 at 10:35 AM

it looked like nurse was going to get his [email protected]@ kicked at first and once i thought smith dropped him for a second but nurse fought back and bloodied smith's nose...draw

Posted by mrunohoo on September 22, 2015 at 12:15 PM

Thank the gods hockey is back. I hate the summer.

Posted by FHgrad99 on October 03, 2015 at 05:53 PM

Some big boy punches were being thrown here. I gave Nurse a narrow win here. Good scrap.

Posted by ToughGuyWayne on September 26, 2015 at 02:53 AM

Nurse busted up Smith's nose and got it leaking. Good fight.

Posted by sndaysnipr on September 22, 2015 at 12:07 AM

Battle of who can hit harder and faster. Nurse got a few more in and gets leakage on Smith. Win Nurse

Posted by SylvanLaker on September 22, 2015 at 08:00 PM

Well glad he stood in there, he is going to have to, but prefer him on the ice.....Winner - Nurse

Posted by yahrite on September 30, 2015 at 12:06 AM

Hunter thought he had an advantage with that face guard Nurse pounded right through it..way to go Darnell..welcome to the bigs buddy

Posted by slysi on October 01, 2015 at 07:05 PM

rockem sockem ...all the way !!

Posted by Hendu66 on September 22, 2015 at 04:34 PM

Smith started it Nurse sent smith to the Dr....close scrap but when you get your nose flattened and leave the ice for repairs to stop the bleeding, you are the I'm done.

Posted by Spinner55 on September 22, 2015 at 09:48 AM

"Nurse, Nurse, I need a Nurse!" The Flames sent "tough guy" Hunter Smith out to exact revenge on Nurse... Smith hides behind his visor and then delays the game while the Saddledome ice crew has to scrape up his blood. The Battle of Alberta begins again.

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on September 26, 2015 at 05:13 PM

Quality dust-up here. Both boys threw big and didn't shy away. Smith had it early, but good job by Nurse to come back and rally late. A well-deserved 8 and a draw for these two.

Posted by cob1963 on October 17, 2015 at 05:43 PM

Smith was almost the top dog, but Nurse not only drew blood, but had the better finish. Good battle.

Posted by corbell on September 27, 2015 at 08:34 PM

Very close, tow to tow, good fight.

Posted by claire alexande on September 25, 2015 at 02:28 AM

Good close fight, but edge to Smith who landed a few bigger shots. Fluky visor cut is fluky. Rumour has it Bollig told Nurse that he had to fight Smith or him, after Nurse's stalwart pussying out against Smith the previous game after proving his manhood by winning against a Flames rookie Swede who'd never had a fight in his life to that point.

Posted by falopiantube on October 03, 2015 at 03:44 AM

Don't see how anyone can think Nurse won this fight. Great scrap.

Posted by chad420 on October 02, 2015 at 08:23 AM

Win DN...decent bout...D better learn to keep his chin down

Posted by Humper on September 22, 2015 at 06:36 PM

Smith went looking for trouble and found a whole bunch of it.

Posted by powerforward92 on September 22, 2015 at 09:30 AM

finally a good fight from NHL. Smith with better reach and punches...

Posted by Sock Monkey on September 22, 2015 at 07:40 AM

Clearly a draw

Posted by papa_gecko on September 22, 2015 at 12:21 AM

well that backfired didn't it coach hartley?
