Match penalty was for Miller's taped hand, and Kalinin got cut.

Kalinin had tape below his wrist as well...He really "skated" on that one.

Ken Daneyko selling this bout like it was the second coming of Marciano-Walcott. For a couple of rare fighters I guess it was OK. And I agree with Ken that it was a draw.

Doesn't look like Miller's jersey is tied down either.

Posted by JoeCritter on February 24, 2016 at 10:45 PM

Funny, I figured Miller's stupid rule match penalty would have been for not having his jersey tied down...

Two light weights?? One guy is 6'2 the other 6'3 and both around or over 200 lbs. They are big boys by any measure and come close to heavy weights in boxing circles. Linesman tried to stop the fight due to JT opening his chinstrap, standard rule in the NHL, clean up those bogus facts Lucic17.

Solid draw, both landed a good one. If it were wrestling, I'd give Miller the win for the 2pt Olympic throw at the end, but it isn't sooooo..... Draw

rookie russian who fought his 1st nhl fight vs miller who proved already that he can throw 'em with non-fighters that's why i thought this could be an easy win for miller but instead kalinin landed a couple and miller missed a couple.he went for a takedown when he was in trouble but i think this still is a draw. i can see a lot of rangers fans voting again

Both had some good punches, but nobody dominated

I'll call it a slight edge to Miller The old taped hand ejection... don't see that every day.

Posted by bigmike53 on February 23, 2016 at 11:51 PM

Close scrap and a slight nod to Miller. I wouldn't argue a Draw.

Posted by Joceron on February 24, 2016 at 09:34 AM

Edge to Miller for activity & control. - 5.

Posted by ironbar44 on February 24, 2016 at 05:04 PM

not much of a go. stupid move with the tape

Posted by shane0mack on February 23, 2016 at 10:28 PM

NHL Rule 46.15: Any player or goalkeeper wearing tape or any other material on his hands (below the wrist) who cuts or injures and opponent during an altercation will receive a match penalty in addition to any other penalties imposed including for fighting under this rule. Miller got tossed because he was wearing tape below his wrist and Kalinin got cut. It's unclear whether the injury was caused by the tape (maybe it was on the visor) but the rule doesn't require causation. Ultimately giving the fight a 5 and a draw. Both got in a couple of decent punches, but mostly grappling and helmet shots.

Kalinin landed the only punch and it was a good one. No points for the hip throw. Kalinin and 5

Posted by filthynumber1 on February 23, 2016 at 09:54 PM

Match penalty ?? For attempted but missed knee or no tie down?

Posted by gmr133 on February 24, 2016 at 11:36 AM

Nobody landed anything. draw.

Posted by RootBeer on February 24, 2016 at 10:55 AM

Miller Crushed him...Miller also cut him with a good punch ...Miller got kicked from the game cause he had tap on his hand and in the rule book if you cut or injury a person with tape on your hand your out of the game so he got a match Penalty

I don't even care about the fight. The fact that these clown show refs go in to break it up before it even starts is the most ridiculous thing to happen in hockey. Old timers gotta be shaking their heads. I'm so pissed watching this, knowing this is what is coming for our game. So sad. The initial squaring up - that moment of dropping the gloves and the settling up before latching on and throwing punches - can be more exhilarating than the fight itself. I loved staged fights. I love fights right off the draw. I love watching guys dance around center ice, eyeing one another up. To take that out of the game is going to take me right out with it. Keep hockey real.

Two guys who can't fight ...fight. Kalinin with the only real punch landed. Not sure if it caught visor or face. Props to J.T Miller for removing his chin strap. Kalinin should have done the same. Wuss. I almost want to give this to Miller, but it's kind of hard to give a win to a guy who landed nothing and got clipped in the kisser. Draw.

Posted by kkdowning on February 25, 2016 at 12:29 PM

Two well known tough guys don't do much in a sloppy bout. Probably edge for Miller

Posted by Tone91 on February 24, 2016 at 01:01 PM

Kalinin had same tape job as Miller he just didn't hurt him. Miller by default. Also fix the rule book garage league.

Posted by doobi1 on February 24, 2016 at 11:13 AM

No Miller. You don't win a fight by undressing on the ice. Save it for the locker room ya bum. I'll bet Kalinin would've won but was grossed out by the bush league strip down. DRAW. No winners here.

Posted by lucic17 on February 23, 2016 at 09:46 PM

Miller more active and loosened the chin strap. Sloppy, but somewhat admirable, effort by two lightweights. Lame linesman almost stopped the fight and hate the way shields have changed fighting in the NHL. God I hate Bettman more every day.
