Other Penalties: Smith received a minor and misconduct for instigating a fight.
Quick, messy and anticlimatic...that's exactly how my girlfriend describes me
Kulikov got smoked by Lee! Smith slightly bests Lee in the ensuing scrap.
Smith. Never saw this side of him on the Bruins.
IF Lee keeps playing this physical, he will be a force in this league for a long, long time.
Clear win for Lee in this Ho Hum fight!
Sick of this hit reaction fights and can't see how coaches can be either, you lose a guy for half the game. I prefer the old school stalking of the guy for a period or so and trying to goad him into manning up. That's when games had tension!
Lee destroys Kulikov with a great open ice hit. Smith Pearl Harbors Lee. Eh.
Monster hit by Lee leads to a response by Reilly Smith. Smith gets the edge in the rather uneventful fight.
it's smith's 1st nhl fight and he surprised me how well he handled bigger lee who doesnt fight usually but he wasnt completely lost in his couple of nhl fights he was involved in imo i like smith's under and over combination at the end..win smith
Nothing wrong with the fight...instigator penalty is bullchit. Old time hockey...you belt my guy I either belt you or one of your stars. Good Stuff. Screw Gary Bettman! All Smith and a 4 BTW...Islander's TV guys are puzzies!
At last, retribution is delivered successfully in grand fashion. Loved to see Lee get beat down like the dog that he is. He's been due for an a** whipping for quite awhile now. You go Reilly. WIN Smith.
Another fight after a clean hit...welcome to the new NHL
Sometimes non-fighters should just keep it that way.
Another nice hit followed by a nothing fight
It is a clean open ice hit - what's the issue? - It's hockey. Smith wins the fight and deserves the instigator.
Lee accepted the fight. Instigator penalties are BS and just drive fans away.
Wow! What a CLEAN hit by Lee. You could hear the pop. He got jumped for it, but damn good hit. Looked like he wasn't ready to have to drop the gloves after a legal hit, he was just trying to avoid getting punched in the chops.
Good, clean hit in open ice followed by a crappy, and yes unnecessary fight between two non-fighters.
Great hit !! Keep yer head up dummy, this is the NHL still right ??? Fight sucked nothing on nothing. Did I mention the awesome hit . Crushed him. Big win Isles.........
League has a lot of pretenders not a lot of fighters.
