Mantha starts with a quick McGratton stare down (!!!) and ends with a long Brian Boyle embrace.

This Mantha kid is a big guy who's pretty good at hockey. He plays with a bit of an edge. Unfortunately he hasn't shown that he's a worthy fighter yet. Although I'm sure nobody will mind after sticking up for a teammate. Draw & 3 Nice hit by Harts.

Mantha sticking up for his team mate is cool. Smith can handle his own business but he just came back form injury. It is a good thing for Mantha that he is stronger than Hartnell. He was able to tie up Hartnell. No points for Hartnell for not landing anything. No points for Mantha for the WWE take down. DRAW!

Is it technically a fight when neither guy really attempts a punch? Mantha looked the part until they grabbed on. Then he instantly went into a defensive mode. I mean, seriously, why bother?!

Best fight of the year

mantha challenged hartnell after his hit and they had not much of fight affair...draw...and 2

The actual draw-fight was a wedding waltz, but it gets an extra point for yet another Red Wing policing a hit; granted, anticlimactic in the post Probert eras. I was really hoping the former "Simply Scott" Hartnell answering for an entertaining hit would at least be amusing but alas, no.

hug fest. Props to the kid for standing up to a tough guy.

Mantha's a kid,he's learning,good to see him dropping the mitt's,remember he's not a noted scrapper,don't know if you'd call him a young snipper,or a trying to be power forward but he's scored couple nice goals this year and dropped the gloves a few times..Like Mickey says"it will go along way with his teammates".Watching the Wings for years,some fights...mostly crappy...are better than no fights.A Hartnell is Hartnell as usual.

Great hit !!! What was manthas point ?? agree with legend 22, start a fight after a hit to your teammate and you get 10 minutes, enough of this crap.

Posted by burnsy9 on February 08, 2017 at 01:13 PM

The takedown gives the edge. No punch lands from either. Not a fight.

Posted by Detroit_Caps on February 08, 2017 at 07:41 PM

No real punches, Mantha just displays superior strength.

Posted by thrillram on February 07, 2017 at 09:05 PM

Hartnett won't fight heavyweights. A true NHL sissy.

Posted by b_eazzzy on February 11, 2017 at 06:01 PM

Fuck Scott hartnell

Posted by Kemby31 on February 10, 2017 at 10:28 AM

Respect for Mantha here.

Posted by legend22 on February 08, 2017 at 04:34 PM

starting a fight for an unpenalized hit should be a 10 min misconduct. Maybe then the NHL will get away from this crap. This is a 1 at best Draw

Did they kiss?

Iffy hit by Hartnell--might've left his feet. Nothing "fight." Mantha hanging on, and I don't know what the homer announcers were talking about, but Hartnell is not known as a tough guy, he's known as a guy who sucks at this.

Posted by Humper on February 08, 2017 at 10:34 AM

When a player challenges another to a fight and the challenge is accepted...shouldn't there then actually be a fight?

Posted by English_Bruin on February 09, 2017 at 01:10 PM

Fight of the year. Mantha really showed him

Posted by bigmike53 on February 07, 2017 at 10:18 PM

I kept waiting for something to happen. It never did. Draw.

Posted by SidKid87 on February 12, 2017 at 08:30 PM

Draw CRAP fight VC Horrible Horrible If fartSMELL can't take down a mantha; It's time to hang em up...

Posted by nbecc1 on February 08, 2017 at 08:31 AM

Like seeing Mantha sticking up for his team If the kids ever learns to fight, he will be a complete hockey player and a damn good one
