Abdelkader lands the only punch and the fight starved fans of Detroit go bananas! Good for them! Win Abdelkader.
The Boston Panthers have brought in Edwards and Brickhead! Their homer call on the hit on Markov was just stupid. Markov was skating low, with his head down and the puck on his stick. Abdelkader led with his shoulder and made contact with Markov's body and head. He didn't charge. He didn't leave his feet and he didn't target Markov's head. No penalty, no suspension...nothing but an ass whipping handed to MacKenzie who was trying to even the score for a solid hockey play. Mackenzie catches a big right and then eats a couple of more on the way down! Florida gets shut out in the game and in the fight.
If you play I Am the Walrus backwards you can clearly hear: "Derek MacKenzie fights like a jaundiced chipmunk".
"2 tough guys," easy there Redmond. Wings are going to need someone to keep an eye on Larks, Abby ain't going to cut it. Win Abdelkader.
Nice job by Abdelkader -- apparently the only Red wind that knows how to fight. When Behn Wilson comes back, his thirst for a Red Wind fight win can be slaked.
Yet another Wing demonstrating pugilistic dominance. Abby on the basis of a big right.
Dats is just f'n riled up! Love it
Started out weak and got better. Nice comeback by Abdelkader.
In no hurry to Abdel-cate the crown. King of the agitator pay scale. "What really is interesting" ..... is that Sasha Barkov had his fingers in a peanut butter jar when he got levelled with a clean hit earlier in the game and it appeared that MacKenzie was looking in the cupboards for some honey to accompany the knuckle sandwiches he was eating ..... right Mr. Potvin? Did I get it right Denis?
Over rated Panthers get pummeled by Wings and MacKenenzie gets thrashed by Abbs! Only thing better would have been a puck to Jagr's face.
Quick fight with only a few landing.I scored it a draw as I have no dog in this one!
Abdelkader injures a star and then beats up the guy that tries to get retribution. All in a days work.
mackenzie tried to land a couple of haymakers but reach-advantage has been on abdelkader's side.abdelkader landed 2-3 after waiting patiently for his moment and knocked mackenzie off balance
Two shots one real good one landed by Abdelkader ...enough for the win.....MacKenzie according to the announcer is really good at this sort of thing......I wonder what else he could be good at? [email protected] Wooly mammoth's comments.......I remember way back when he joined here...he was but a hairy marmot ......look how much you've grown....lol
Abdelkader waits for an opening and with one good POP takes the victory. Note to wooly mammoth: Man, just Let It Be, would ya?
Abdelkader with the win after a couple of solid punches.
Mackenzie is one of the last visor-less gunfighters in the league. Kudos to him. Win for Abdeldooder with that huge right though.
I expect Abdelkader will get his real review with Eric Gudbranson on March 19.
Nice to see the Wings fight every now and again. I just don't understand how one franchise can be so anti fighting year after boring year. There's no buzz about Red Wings hockey anymore. There's no drama, no passion, not bad blood. Just boring.
Abby lands a great right and played a great game tonight Abby threw his punches with some serious heat behind them Abby with a easy win for a GOOD HOCKEY HIT
Mackenzie overestimated himself, and over estimated his opponent . . .need more time in the gym kid Fla should just let Thorton do thier fighting
C'mon, Mick. "Couple of tough guys." Doubt it. I swear I saw some hair pulling and eye scratching going on by Abby. MacAttack? More like MacHappymeal! Mick-"Down to the showers, boys!" Probably with each other. I saw this one live and I felt something move down there. The Wings score three goals and beat the won't make the Finals Panthers with a fight thrown in! That's why I score it a 7. Too many overpriced Molsons.
The Beatles were a band of four members. Some people say that there were other members of the Beatles. The Beatles once famously walked along a road named "Abbey Road" and made an album called "Abbey Road" with a picture illustrating them walking along the road. There was also a Volkswagen Beetle that was parked on the road during the shoot. Some people say that it is a reference to a fifth band member and how the Beatles, themselves, had the opinion that there were more than just the four primary band members. Fifty years later, Justin Abdelkader wears number eight. Four times two is eight. "Abbey" is short for "Abdelkader." It must be the case that Abdelkader is the eighth member of the Beatles... either that or Aliens.
Abbey at least stood up for himself. Not known as a cheap shot. Check was solid.
Abdelkader is such a pussy. He passed up a fight with Petro and Ekblad after his dirty hit, flat out REFUSING to drop the gloves, only to take a fight with the much smaller Mackenzie. COWARD.
One good stinger from Abby split Mac's eye open. Clean hit earlier in the game, clean win in the fight. LGRW
