Chorney decides to take on Nick "The Sledgehammer" Bonino. Chorney's helmet has other plans though, and heads for the men's room as soon as it sees who's going to be punching it. Bonino lands a monster right to the shoulder of Chorney, knocking him clean off his feet. Luckily for Chorney that didn't connect with his head, otherwise it may have decapitated him! Bonino ends with the rarely used standing lapel choke!

You don't see a crushing blow to the left shoulder like Bonobo handed out very often..... What the hell was that?

A couple on NHL fight newbies share this extravagant moment together while hockey & fight fans sit and reflect on what has happened to the recent Pens/Caps rivalries of yesteryear

Much sound and fury signifying nothing

Draw!Straight up!

These are fights. Anger was in both of their eyes

Chorney's helmet may have come off, but I think he got the win by a little bit -- and that is not counting the hits and cross-checks before the fight started. Stegie -- I miss you man!

Man, the idiot announcers were really trying to sell this as a good fight. Was all intention, no connection. Move along, move along.

Caps fans voted for Chorney, I'm giving the nod to Bonino for the knockdown, shoulder shot or not. WIN Bonino. The shot had enough umph on it to put Chorney on his wallet. Corney was throwing them but doubt he connected with any.

Posted by milamc19 on April 24, 2016 at 06:41 PM

Bonino definately won the fight

Posted by blueliner34 on December 15, 2015 at 03:38 PM

Chorney with the decision

Posted by Great Murray on December 15, 2015 at 02:16 PM

1 punch landed by Chorney so he gets the win...frenetic but mostly just wasted energy

Posted by Behn Wilson on December 15, 2015 at 06:18 AM

After a couple of consecutively cheap crosschecks not to mention a decent uppercut or two... Bonino has had enough... and without the aid of an optometrist he proceeds to launch into the most vicious "left shoulder assault" seen in years

Posted by sj9096 on December 14, 2015 at 09:29 PM

Considering these are two non-– fighters, an entertaining bout. Chorney was the winner.

Posted by CapsYapp on December 15, 2015 at 04:58 PM

Both first ever fights for each, Chorney the better punches that landed gives him the edge

Posted by bigmike53 on December 14, 2015 at 11:48 PM

Nice quick scrap and a narrow win for Chorney.

Posted by Jurky88 on December 23, 2015 at 10:25 PM

Chorine got a good lick in and Bonino punched him in the shoulder. T dog won this one

Posted by Capsfan1 on December 14, 2015 at 09:03 PM

Chorney was the only one who landed anything. Props to Bonino for holding his ground but Chorney wins this one.

Posted by Detroit_Caps on December 15, 2015 at 08:16 AM

Given it was a Hens home game Im surprised Chorney didnt get a misconduct and a meeting in New Yourk for minor contact (:D) Good for Chorney, needs a few lessons though. . . .looks like Wilson and the rest have the Hens scared this year that Chorneys the only one they'll go after :D

Posted by DanielleinDC on December 15, 2015 at 12:58 PM

Chorney by a hair (thanks, Root, for the super-mo). Sure he went down first, but he took Bonino down with him and got the better blows. He's also lucky he didn't get an extra two for the crosschecks he laid on Bonino before they Bonino said, "Let's go," and Chorney said, "Okay."

Posted by murphyrutten on December 15, 2015 at 11:14 AM

Chorney caught him with a good uppercut, Bonino only punched Taylor's shoulder.

Posted by Jordybats99 on July 24, 2016 at 10:23 PM

Win Bonino.

Posted by slambo on December 17, 2015 at 02:27 AM

Bonino ate a big knuckle sandwich, and thanked Chorney with a big pat on the back..

This is about as entertaining as a crappy fight can be. The reason is the awesome slow motion replay.The Chorney uppercut sort of landed and if the other punches had someone would be on their back on the ice. Great energy with weak results. Still they get an A for effort.

Posted by Mounty in NC on December 14, 2015 at 10:31 PM

Not sure how Chorney didn't get 2 for roughing or cross checking..... Close fight so I give it a draw. How do you say a fight is so close one might have won by a hair.... Why wouldn't you give it a draw???

Posted by Humper on December 14, 2015 at 09:23 PM

Lots of anger here. Toss a coin for the winner, I'd think Chorney took it by a hair.

Posted by bobowen34 on December 14, 2015 at 09:26 PM

In live action I thought Bonino looked better. In slow motion, I give it to Chorney.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on January 11, 2016 at 04:12 AM

Chorny landed the best shot of this spirited tilt.

Posted by King of Goons on December 15, 2015 at 01:41 AM

From the naked eye it looked like Bonino landed a big punch that rocked Chorney, ...but after seeing the replay it was a glancing blow to the shoulder pad. Win Chorney, for the only significant punches landed in the fight, but good for Bonino for going at the guy after all that cross checking crap. Chorney should have gotten an additional penalty for the stick work. I f'ing love hockey.

Posted by web1350 on December 14, 2015 at 09:12 PM

Bonino with the clear win. Not close.
