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.

Posted by oats925 on December 03, 2015 at 08:56 PM

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 looked like chipchura stunned smith a couple times but it hard to tell...draw in a good fight and 7

Posted by jappleton11 on December 04, 2015 at 11:49 AM

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

Posted by Ezekial on December 04, 2015 at 12:51 AM

Great fight, Good blows each way, but I thought Smith held his own against a much more frequent fighter so I go with him.

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on December 03, 2015 at 10:27 PM

good fight

Posted by MichaelFlyers37 on December 03, 2015 at 09:01 PM

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!!!

Posted by doobi1 on December 05, 2015 at 06:32 PM

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.

Posted by steppenwolf99 on December 09, 2015 at 01:48 PM

A semi hugfest with good counter punching on both sides.

Posted by Kev63 on December 13, 2015 at 01:10 PM

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.

Posted by EK65 on December 04, 2015 at 12:43 PM

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.

Posted by slysi on December 10, 2015 at 05:53 PM

good tussle for these days in the NHL

Posted by FL Bruins Fan on December 03, 2015 at 09:19 PM

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.

Posted by Behn Wilson on December 06, 2015 at 04:52 PM

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!

Posted by 5fourfighten on December 06, 2015 at 11:00 AM

Spirited bout. Chipchura edges this one out despite the early pop to the jaw by Smith.

Posted by Sasky001 on December 05, 2015 at 06:09 PM

Chipchura picks up his first win.

Posted by English_Bruin on December 04, 2015 at 12:09 PM

Slight edge to Kyle

Posted by tbooth47 on December 27, 2015 at 01:03 AM

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

Posted by nbecc1 on December 04, 2015 at 06:16 AM

Smitty stood up to a bigger guy, took his shots and WON

Posted by Detroit_Caps on December 04, 2015 at 05:30 AM

Good for Smith, . . .definitely needs to do this more/

Posted by nait on December 03, 2015 at 09:20 PM

we need more scraps like this

Posted by Great Murray on December 04, 2015 at 07:52 AM

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.

Posted by Asli727 on December 04, 2015 at 02:49 PM

Great Fight. Very close but win goes to Smith.

Posted by Sykes44 on December 08, 2015 at 03:28 PM

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

Posted by kryon24 on December 06, 2015 at 02:29 PM

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.

Posted by lb1631 on December 07, 2015 at 06:18 PM

great scrap between these two guys. I gave the slight edge to Smith. Very slight.

Posted by gunner72089 on December 05, 2015 at 06:29 PM

Good scrap by 2 guys that both wanted to go...edge to smith, as he fights a lot less often than chipchura.

Posted by rancid on December 04, 2015 at 08:34 PM

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.

Posted by powerforward92 on December 04, 2015 at 05:39 PM

giving 5 rate to this fight... draw

Posted by Jellyczar on December 05, 2015 at 03:34 PM

I gave it a draw... but Chipper should have been able to handle Smith and obviously didn't.

Posted by Don Berry on December 03, 2015 at 09:30 PM

Pretty good fight! Ha Draw

Posted by the kid 61 on December 04, 2015 at 08:33 AM

Poor mickey redmond, he is all excited about smith fighting chipchura. He wishes for the days of probie, kocur, mccarty, mckay, on and on.

Posted by rocky 1 on December 03, 2015 at 11:25 PM

Very good fight in today's NHL.Very close and a Draw!

Posted by kaywonathon on December 04, 2015 at 01:03 AM

they both got their licks in...good fight

Posted by royal52 on December 03, 2015 at 11:10 PM

If it wasn't for the early shot by Chippy...however gotta give credit for that draw

Posted by slambo on December 05, 2015 at 12:37 AM

great fight, too close to call for me. I can't wait for a rematch...

Posted by kitcarnut on December 04, 2015 at 05:17 PM

Chipper wins

Posted by Mounty in NC on December 03, 2015 at 08:49 PM

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!

Posted by grrbronco81 on December 05, 2015 at 08:38 AM

Great bout. Nice to see a DRW not getting pushed around.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on January 11, 2016 at 05:05 AM

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.

Posted by FHgrad99 on December 05, 2015 at 02:03 PM

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.

Posted by BruinsAllDaySon on December 05, 2015 at 09:51 AM

That a boy Smith! Man did he ever connect on that first shot - that would have dropped a lot of guys.

Posted by MichiganMatt on December 06, 2015 at 12:28 PM

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.

Posted by erikk3 on December 03, 2015 at 10:05 PM

Those announcers, are FUCKED

Posted by von_swine on December 03, 2015 at 09:50 PM

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...

Posted by Humper on December 03, 2015 at 09:25 PM

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.

Posted by bigmike53 on December 03, 2015 at 09:50 PM

Good scrap with some give and take from both guys! I'm going with a Draw.

Posted by esteef on December 03, 2015 at 11:28 PM

Smith landed better shots. Slight win Smith.

Posted by bawhite on December 04, 2015 at 12:55 PM

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.

Posted by LetsWingIt on December 04, 2015 at 04:14 AM

Wouldn't have seen that with Babs behind the bench.

Posted by PuckFittsburgh on December 04, 2015 at 06:10 AM

W Smith
