Other Penalties: Smith received a minor for slashing.
I saw this one live. Two Wings go down with injuries. Miller takes one to the jaw and didn't know where he was for a few minutes. The ref has to help him up and skates him to the direction of the bench. And then this epic fight breaks out. Smitty stings him early! ChippingChurla jabs the shit outta Smith using both hands. He throws a doozy to knock Smitty off balance, but Smitty outlasts the onslaught for the win! I thought it was a draw last night, but after watching the replay, Smitty takes the edge. By the way, I spilled half of my $9 beer on the floor jumping out of my seat! I felt something strange in my groin region after this display of old school hockey. That strange rush of blood doesn't happen to often in "Hockeytown" anymore, so I enjoyed this one like a kid on Christmas morning. Ironic a Domi was in the house. I still miss the old Winged Wheel #24, 25, and #26.
If you were to tell me that Chipmunk were to be in an entertaining bout, I'd tell you to stop listening to Christmas tunes while huffing paint thinner and dangling from a twelve foot pole upside down.
That was a fun fight. Chipchura controlled it a little more but that first shot from Smith definitely stung him. I'll go with a draw.
i didnt expect such a fight from these 2...it looked like chipchura stunned smith a couple times but it hard to tell...draw in a good fight and 7
both landed great punches extremely close scored smith as the winner as he isn't as much of a fighter as chipchura and as smith landed on top position... all in all fight of the season for me so far loved it
Great fight, Good blows each way, but I thought Smith held his own against a much more frequent fighter so I go with him.
Two dudes genuinely wanna bust each other up and so it goes! They throw with some booty smellin intent. Trying to blow each other's heads off. Til the end we have a result of, a draw. Nice tilt by two poopy fighters. Good day gentlemen... Woooooo!!!
Damn that was a ggod one. Both guys trying to knock the block off of each other. LIked the fight but cannot honestly say who won. OTH Draw.
A semi hugfest with good counter punching on both sides.
Smith got a nice right in to start the bout, and he connected with like four more. However, Chipchura demonstrated more skill while landing lefts and rights that rocked Smith. Damn nice uppercut by Smith didn't go unnoticed, and he did his fair share of bobbling Chipchura's melon and got him leaking. Draw, nevertheless.
A fight between Chipchura and a Red Wing leading to a possible early FOTY candidate? I might still be sauced? No it happened right? Gave it an 8 out of a mutual respect for 2 guys chucking. Also loved the refs letting them go and moving the net.
good tussle for these days in the NHL
The shot by Smith to start thongs off hurt, but Chipchura came back strong. Both men landed good shots. Great fight, gotta call it a draw.
Although it takes a cheap crosscheck a cheaper slash and a decent right hook to make Mr Chips realize that he's in a fight... once one of the league's most reknowed poor pugilists shakes off the "stundedness " (ding!... New word!)... he somehow... and without the aid of any technique currently known to boxing ...makes his way back to a draw... dare I say a win! Holy Tom Kantstopolous Batman!
Spirited bout. Chipchura edges this one out despite the early pop to the jaw by Smith.
Chipchura picks up his first win.
Slight edge to Kyle
just cause a player gets a take down doesn't mean they win! if the take down is a KO then ya sure thats a win but just cause one player falls on top of the other player doesn't mean anything. Use your heads
Smitty stood up to a bigger guy, took his shots and WON
Good for Smith, . . .definitely needs to do this more/
we need more scraps like this
Holy crap.who'd a thunk it...a Detroit fight that gets a 7 and a win for a Red Wing!!!! This was after Detroit lost 2 players because of two big hits (1 suspendable). Smith steps in with a really tough guy, eats a couple of good shots but wins the fight with several bombs to the anvil that Chipchura calls his head. I'll say it again...bring the Wrecking Ball up from Grand Rapids. If they don't Detroit won't have any Euro-midgets left by the All-Star game.
Great Fight. Very close but win goes to Smith.
Decent tilt. Close but won by Smith due to the first clean punch being a doozy, hanging in there whist Chipper came back and then tagging him with two really nice uppercuts. Nice to see a Red Wing getting stuck in for a change. Props to Smitty for avoiding an infected hand too :D
Wow it's fukin amazing what happens once you get rid of the biggest panty waist coach in hockey!! 2 fights in consecutive nights. Toronto have now claimed the crown as the wimp jest team so far this year. As for the fight, good scrap with all offense and no defense . Nice draw.
great scrap between these two guys. I gave the slight edge to Smith. Very slight.
Good scrap by 2 guys that both wanted to go...edge to smith, as he fights a lot less often than chipchura.
Smith landed some really solid shots. He definitely took a few to the side of the head, but his uppercuts were huge and looked to stun Chipchura.
giving 5 rate to this fight... draw
I gave it a draw... but Chipper should have been able to handle Smith and obviously didn't.
Pretty good fight! Ha Draw
Poor mickey redmond, he is all excited about smith fighting chipchura. He wishes for the days of probie, kocur, mccarty, mckay, on and on.
Very good fight in today's NHL.Very close and a Draw!
they both got their licks in...good fight
If it wasn't for the early shot by Smith...win Chippy...however gotta give credit for that shot...so draw
great fight, too close to call for me. I can't wait for a rematch...
Smith with a big shot to start things off but Chipshura get's a few of his own. That was a pretty good back and forth fight. I'll give it a draw!
Great bout. Nice to see a DRW not getting pushed around.
Chippy did well, but Smith did better. This was a half way decent fight between two guys that I didn't think were very good fighters.
Those two guys were swinging with a purpose. Both guys landed some, and missed some. I think Smith landed a couple of the better shots and he gets the win.
That a boy Smith! Man did he ever connect on that first shot - that would have dropped a lot of guys.
Great tilt. Kudos to B Smith for taking on a tough guy. Wings starting to step up a bit with Abby and Smitty. BTW, Miller is out with a broken jaw. FWIW.
Those announcers, are FUCKED
who knew these two could turn in a real doozy.. but, sometimes the 'supporting cast' can seal the show.. Smith wakes up Chippy w/that early blast & then it's off to Fist City for both of these scumbags.. good tilt. even has replay value (angry) D-raw...
A spirited altercation salted with anger. Smith did well considering the difference in his fight frequency versus Chipchura's. Particularly that first shot. But Chipchura is no slouch and did as well as Smith. Draw.
Good scrap with some give and take from both guys! I'm going with a Draw.
Smith landed better shots. Slight win Smith.
A good ol' donnybrook at Joe Louis Arena. They were both intent on doing some damage. Smith with the nod, that first one hurt the most.
Wouldn't have seen that with Babs behind the bench.
