I once owned a Russian import with a suspiciously similar name that was hard to start and needed repairs......... Beating on the alternator was an effective method. Nic throws his arms up in disgust ..............and needs a ride home .....again

Posted by bigmike53 on December 28, 2015 at 09:52 PM

The Caps were after Deslauriers after a good hit he put on Williams. Latta issued the challenge and Deslauriers accepts. Nic delivers a fairly thorough thumping of the Caps tough MW. Nice win for ND.

Another example of failed retribution -- clear win for the Tattooed French Canadian Dude. Plus, Latta may have broken his left hand or wrist in the fight to add the proverbial injury to the insult (or vice versa).

Posted by Behn Wilson on December 30, 2015 at 05:28 AM

Loving the Reeferman post... as on the latest edition of Top Gear... we find the "Delaurian" seems to be a superior vehicle when smashed into a "Lada"

Posted by staceyb on December 29, 2015 at 08:08 AM

Latta gotta lotta Nic in that exchange.

Posted by EK65 on December 29, 2015 at 12:49 AM

Nice win by Deslauriers A guy whos been far too quiet this season.

Posted by Detroit_Caps on December 29, 2015 at 05:49 AM

he screwed up his wrist with the head shot that was it. .. not some "massive domination" Latta is a far superior fighter and player, he just got injured on that ND is a chump thats just happy someone else went down first for once despite getting hurt. Latta will get revenge on him

Posted by lucic17 on December 28, 2015 at 11:14 PM

Deslauriers start to finish. He seemed excited

Posted by boldbilly on December 29, 2015 at 07:39 AM

All Deslauriers ....Latta? Latta got decaffeinated.....scored this a 5

Posted by Humper on December 29, 2015 at 12:12 PM

Deslauriers took a lot of swings, not sure how many landed or were useful but Latta's lack of activity doomed him to Loserville. How many times will we have to watch an avenger for a clean hit get his butt handed to him for the trouble?

Posted by Beeeerman on December 31, 2015 at 11:36 AM

Looked like they hit arms or fists or something and Latta hurt his wrist. Ok fight with Deslauries landed a couple more.

Posted by wyldthing on December 29, 2015 at 12:53 AM

Who in the hell vote for Latta ??? Clear win Nick, just sad Latta injured his wrist ! Give it a 6

Posted by mindoz on December 29, 2015 at 07:32 PM

Total domination. Latta wanted some retribution for Nick injuring a team mate. Didn't work out well for Latta.

Posted by koda on December 28, 2015 at 09:10 PM

Not a whole lot of good shots landed but Latta ended up in trouble at the end.

Posted by flyerguy on December 29, 2015 at 04:09 PM

This site really needs to start banning the pathetic trolls who vote for the CLEAR losers just to be a loser troll ! Whoever really thinks Latta won that fight should be put too sleep because its clear you're not smart enough to make good life choices

Posted by beanholestatus on December 30, 2015 at 04:23 PM

Deslauriers landed one really good one in that barrage. Also not sure why people would bitch about him celebrating, the fans love it, at least they got some entertainment during a loss.

Posted by King of Goons on December 30, 2015 at 06:55 AM

Latta comes out breathing fire, looking for "revenge" ...but winds up cowering like a turtle at the end after getting repeatedly hammered. Dominating win for Deslauriers against an overmatched Latta.

Posted by doobi1 on December 29, 2015 at 11:52 AM

Latta got his ass whipped all the way down to E. Chippewa Street. Deslaurier the WIN on the beat down. Love it !!! Especially the Cap cleaning.

Posted by slambo on December 29, 2015 at 01:21 AM

Nicky got himself a new girlfriend... He's got some heavy hands too...Nick/6

Posted by English_Bruin on December 29, 2015 at 08:58 AM

Who does Deslauriers think he is? Bellend carried on like he'd just knocked out Rocky when he landed nothing. What a [email protected] Nothing landed by either man.

Posted by simonstribe17 on December 31, 2015 at 11:43 AM

Win Deslauriers although not many punches landed for either fighter. On another note to everyone talking about retribution for a "clean" hit. If you watch the replay of Deslauriers' hit on Williams, he smashes Williams in the face with his stick. Williams was bloodied and missed a few shifts before returning. Looked pretty unintentional from Deslauriers but a player is always responsible for his stick. Nothing was called so Latta went out to stick up for the veteran. Also, Latta lost feeling in his hand during the fight probably from a pinched nerve.

Posted by GVE09 on December 28, 2015 at 11:47 PM

Lame. In the visor age you have to celebrate landing an ear punch? Sad future.

Posted by steppenwolf99 on December 30, 2015 at 05:28 PM

Very few punches landed,the ones that did,blah.ditch the plastic hats/visors.hard to watch this garage

Posted by fwg214 on December 29, 2015 at 06:56 AM

Not a great fight, but props to Latta for stepping out of the draw to call Deslauriers out immediately for what his team thought was a dirty hit on Williams. Deslauriers wins, showboats, and a short time later, Caps put another one in the net. Poetic justice for playing it up? This game got chippy; Wednesday night in Washington could be interesting.

Posted by rocky 1 on December 30, 2015 at 01:06 AM

Latta did not really get hit in the head.I guess he had some kind of injury during the fight that caused him to go down.Win Deslauriers !

Posted by SEMO_Yogi on December 29, 2015 at 10:13 PM

The douche bag won, but the fight was far closer than some of these commenters want to admit. Should be a fun game Wednesday night.

Posted by Great Murray on December 29, 2015 at 06:30 PM

I'm not sure what hurt Latta as all the punches were landed on his bonnet...all the same Nick put a pounding on him for sure.

Posted by Orr Fourever on December 29, 2015 at 06:30 AM

Nicolas won the fight, Caps won the game. Next..

Posted by RjBsn on December 30, 2015 at 01:13 PM

Deslauries isn't a very smart individual and proves it here. After getting away with an accident stick to J.Williams face. He celebrates like a clown. Next bout he may not be celebrating at all.

Posted by chad420 on December 31, 2015 at 08:19 AM

We know who won

Posted by anthrojim on December 30, 2015 at 01:50 PM

Caps sure are whining a lot to the media after this beat down. you lost the fight, you couldn't stand up for your teammate, stop crying because he celebrated the win after the fight.

Posted by FHgrad99 on January 03, 2016 at 11:21 PM

Deslauriers hit Latta with some bombs. Latta is probably hearing some bells after those shots.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on January 11, 2016 at 03:01 AM

Rick Jeanerett and Rob Ray are as good as it gets for announcers, That bein said, Deslauriers absolutely dominated Latta in this tilt.

Posted by CG3 on December 29, 2015 at 12:28 AM

That was well-times fight to try to swing momentum. Didn't end up changing the outcome, but definitely got the crowd going. These are the kind of fights that are always enjoyable.

Posted by Jurky88 on December 30, 2015 at 12:06 PM

Latta lost his footing. Deslauriers won the fight, but shouldn't have celebrated like that. No a good one.

Posted by DARCY T on January 21, 2016 at 12:30 PM

great showing by deslauriers and he repaired his reputation after the fight with oleksiak if latta stopped fighting due to one of deslauriers's punches i call it ko win

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on December 29, 2015 at 10:57 PM

nicky d

Posted by slysi on December 30, 2015 at 04:12 PM

Latta got a lotta .......knuckles

Posted by oldtimer99 on December 28, 2015 at 11:32 PM

Thought The Caps would have Tom Wilson instead of Latta to challenge after a big hit By Deslauriers on Williams. Decisive Win for Nic looking forward to a rematch between the two teams on wednesday as this was a very chippy game including Ovis non call Hit from Behind on Georges

Posted by missesvee on December 30, 2015 at 10:44 AM

Good clean fight Latta got it handed to him but that's what happens when you try to be an avenger when unnecessary . That Deslauriers is up and coming.

Posted by Gbuck18 on December 29, 2015 at 03:24 PM

Nick pounded him.

Posted by glovedropper08 on December 28, 2015 at 10:06 PM

Man Deslauriers can really chuck them sometimes.. Ouch. Win Deslauriers.

Posted by acsrc314 on December 30, 2015 at 08:05 PM

Announcer sounds like a moron.

Posted by SidKid87 on December 29, 2015 at 12:27 AM

A whole latta punches taken....

Posted by Daysofcoleco on December 28, 2015 at 10:05 PM

After the initial throat grab I was sure I was watching Homer choke Bart.

Posted by MichaelFlyers37 on December 28, 2015 at 11:08 PM

Latta gets handled by St Nick. Redeeming himself after making dump dump in his pants running from John Scott. I have a big Weiner.

Posted by BennyD on December 29, 2015 at 10:07 AM

Sorry but nothing landed. 5 a draw, just for the attempt at entertainment.

Posted by Crease_Monkey on December 29, 2015 at 09:29 AM

At least Buffalo is good at fighting. They sent two of our guys to the locker room, but the caps sent the entire Sabers team to the locker room at the end of regulation.

Posted by Mwylie32 on December 28, 2015 at 08:43 PM

Nick clearly wins after knocking down another player

Posted by Capsfan1 on December 28, 2015 at 08:58 PM

Deslauriers definitely won, but there was no need to celebrate when Latta was hurt. That will get Deslauriers hurt.
