So... Troy Brouwer gets the instigator and the 10 minute misconduct for ?????? Watson agreed to the tilt ?? Brouwer didn't jump him unexpectedly ... What a joke ...

This was hilarious. I love the expression on Watson's face. He's like, "Oh geez, shouldna done that. But Oh, well, here we go."

I think the deflated look on his face right after the hit was knowing he's probably going to get suspended for the second time this season. Probably going to end up back in the minors. He took the fight but wasn't really into it and paid for it with a leaky nose.

Brouwer is an underrated tough customer. He bloodied Watson and gets the nod in this scrap.

Lots of opinions here. First off the hit: Not a hit that should be made but, also not the worst hit I've ever seen. Watson let up. I didn't watch the game but, I saw tons of reaction on Twitter claiming Watson should be suspended anywhere from 7-10 games for the hit. Anyone with that type of opinion is an idiot. The Aftermath of the hit: I love when guys who make questionable hits know they need to face the music. Theres a handful of guys I can think of that play on that edge and immediately go looking to back it up. My own man in Ottawa is a perfect example. The Fight: Brouwer comes in, earns the 17 PIMs and extracts his own justice for a hit that he didn't like. The way things should be in Hockey. Called it a 5.

"Vulnerable position" =/= "admiring your pass".

you got to like watson.i believe he enjoys his role and drops his gloves to back it brouwer for the uppercut in not much of a fight...gave it a 3 and i like the hit.he didnt hit him to his head,wasnt too late and hathaway absorbed it well.i think he expected it.i think he even embellished it a bit

Dirty dirty hit! 95% of all concussions in the N.H.L. is due to these type of head shots not fights! Ex N.H,l. tough guy Dave Shultz stated that The instigator penalty is rediculous.Who was the instigator here.Watson making the illegal hit .Not Brower fighting him for the dangerous hit on a team mate!

Not scoring many goals this year, but going with guys like Watson adds to his value. Good stepping in. TB 4

@ tpr1960, Hathaway's head is ok, but Watson's nose was bleeding worse than your vagina every month.

Brouwer has always been a tough dude. He landed a solid and bloodied the Ann Arbor boy.

Posted by STL13 on December 24, 2017 at 06:22 AM

Brouwer with the clear win....Cheap shot by Watson.

Posted by Mounty in NC on December 18, 2017 at 09:37 AM

Can't believe they got a game for that.... Good job for Brouwer sticking up for his player. Cheap shot by Watson. Brouwer and a 4 Tp41960... you are a POS!!!

Posted by Humper on December 17, 2017 at 03:06 PM

Brouwer lands a few decent shots while Watson does diddly-squat, other than bleeding.

Posted by Biggus on December 17, 2017 at 01:52 PM

Brouwer steps up after a cheap hit from behind and gets the W. Watson knew it was coming, just stood there waiting to see who was going to step up.

Posted by claire alexande on December 17, 2017 at 08:29 PM

Brouwer shit-kicks cheapshotting bastard but, damn, Hathaway needs to keep his eyes open out there. I was kind of hoping Bennett would take Subban out to the woodshed just because.

Posted by surfmaster69 on December 19, 2017 at 01:25 PM

Rock'em Sock'em Robots uppercut by Brouwer lands squarely on the beak of Watson. Cheap hit by Watson to start the festivities. He desered to get his a$$ kicked. The look on Watson's face immediately after is hilarious Got caught with his nose in the cookie jar. TPR how many cups do you have in Nashville? None. You can't condone cheap hits like that.

Posted by dogginit on December 17, 2017 at 08:50 AM

totally a dirty hit, but calgary is a soft team thanks to Brian Burke, other teams are not worried about them, they don't hit anyone. All Brouwer, Watson just wanted to get to the ice.

Posted by Detroit_Caps on December 17, 2017 at 02:30 AM

Blood . . . . And a good amount. TB all the way

Posted by Daysofcoleco on December 17, 2017 at 05:11 AM

Watson tries the skip to my lou latch and gets turned into a human jack-o-lantern,

Posted by Great Murray on December 17, 2017 at 07:42 AM

All Brouwer! Excellent job of making Watson pay for a bad hit. Watson sprung a leak and got gamed.

Posted by sedinfan on December 17, 2017 at 03:33 AM

Dumb ass hit and Watson paid the price. Brouwer rearranges his nasal cavity.

Posted by BlueJacket Jay on December 17, 2017 at 10:10 AM

The hit wasn't "dirty". At full speed it definitely gets your attention, but Watson appears to drop the gloves more out of the formality and respect for the "unwritten rules". He went through the motions of a fight with no investment. Brouward is the clear winner, Watson got tagged and wanted to move to the wrestling phase to end the fight

Posted by tpr1960 on December 17, 2017 at 08:15 AM

Hey Calgary fans,... hows Hathaways head ?????? Preds win again !!!!!!!!!
