Other Penalties: Dustin Byfuglien, Blake Wheeler, Gabriel Landeskog and Nick Holden all received roughing minors.
A near line brawl turns into the refs holding back the big guy on the ice completely mitigating the chance for an "old school moment" Props to Ehlers for showing some pugilistic skills and pretty much dominating Barrie. Can someone get Gabe a razor? Is that the Swedish Thorburn?
good gob Nik
Ehlers waits patiently and drops TB with a solid right to the kisser to win his first ever scrap, The Danish Goon!!!!
Hey good job Ehlers.
another game tonite where 2 guys got their 1st fight....youngster ehlers got the win in this one...gave it a 5
Wow those were some pretty good shots from a non fighter.....Ehlers handles himself quite well here, although let's face it he 's not exactly squared up against a goon here....nonetheless an impressive outing......win Ehlers and a score of 5........ Where are all the reviewers of late?
Ok the Jets bench reaction tells it all doesn't it. Usually you don't see players smiling and laughing but Nik seemed to catch everyone off guard including his teammates.
Honest fight. Nothing staged or fake about it. Nik surprised me big time. Enjoyed it a lot.
Jets had the Finnish Flash (Selane), now the Danish Dagger? Ehlers picked someone his size and didn't back down. Good job Nicolaj. And it's not "Nik".
Not much of a fight...Ehlers parks Barrie on his ass with one punch. Wisely, Barrie turtles until Stripes gets there.
I guess Denmark ain't so neutral anymore.
Two non-fighters show us how it's done - genuine angry conflict with no holds barred. Ehlers comes through in the end.
That was a pleasant surprise! Win for Ehlers
I didn't see the KD punch. It was kind of like Ali/Liston. Draw.
Nik Ehlers impresses in his first NHL fight with a spirited bout cheered on by his teammates. Ehlers will one day be a flashy superstar but it's good to know he won't back down and can throw 'em...as he finishes Barrie off with a last punch to the jaw.
lots of motion ( like a ceiling fan ) but only one punch landed
Ownage.. how can anyone even vote for Barrie winning that fight?
Jets bench looks pleasantly surprised, someone's going to buy Ehlers a Tuborg during Superbowl.
Solid punch to the chin by Ehlers the deciding blow and took Barrie to the ground (ice). Nice fly weight fight! I couldn't stop laughing!
Ehlers looking like a seasoned pugilist in there. well, maybe a mini-pugilist I suppose...
