Other Penalties: Johnston received a roughing.
In honor of MLB spring training, Johnston plays pitcher to Hathaway's catcher.
Well, Hathaway did better than his pal Lomberg! This Johnston looks like he could be a beast. I like it that he genuinely looks like he enjoys hurting people when he drops the mitts! A modern-day Clarke Gillis.
Win for Johnson!
Hathaway clearly out classed. But instead of acting like a man. He takes cheap shots to Johnston's midsection as linesmen attempt to separate the two. Real lack of Character on Hathaway's part. Johnston would have been in his rights to land a shot to Hataway's chin as he laid on the ice. Win Johnston.
Hathaway didn't want to be there, not sure how he has any votes here for two flailing while falling punches...home town fans tsk tsk tsk
flames will be sending down there tough guy to ahl soon enough ,boggles the mind how they gave up on england
Hathaway eats a few decent shots and hit from the ground once the refs jump in to rescue hm. Johnston and a 4.
HATHAWAY got away cheap his little buddy got pounded by this guy last game .a legit heavy weight with some skills i hard to find . the guys has got hands 3 g 3 ass 14 games their teams website says
The big Johnston kid throws down with Hathaway after a very minor check. I guess Hathaway is his most impressive win so far this season at the NHL level but still, I wanna see him go with one of the bigger boys.
Johnston is a nasty SOB and I like him. He picks up the win here.
Ross went bombs away on Hathaway
Clear win, Johnston. Wish better competition would come at him.
Modern day Clark Gillies? You must be too young to have watched Mr. Gillies. He destroyed most of the toughest. Johnston has never fought anyone, maybe not his fault with the wimpy NHL we watch. I watched him lots in the minors as well and there were some unimpressive draws against a couple veterans and a bunch of other unimpressive fights against no names. I wonder how he would do with Reaves or some.of the recently expired enforcers. I think he would have a short career.
windmill slaps.... sigh.... was expecting better.
brewing from last game. all johnston. u would think there would be someone better to deal with this shit than hathaway. stewart, glass, gazdik, prout....
Hard to figure if Ross is a legit tough guy since he's fought a bunch of tomato cans. He did engage Tanner Glass last year and got his arse kicked so before he's anointed as the beast of the block let's see him go with the big boys.
Draw. He slipped.
I'll give it a draw... not one of those punches my Johnston landed and Hathaway did deliver a decent shot before going to the ice. 3 and a draw
I don't see a clear winner here. Johnston hits nothing but air and Hathaway might have got one in.
The only one who actually hit anyone was Hathaway, Johnston just punched the back of the shoulder pads, Hathaway got a good one to Johnstons Puss before the big guy pushed him to the ice and threw a sucker shot. I don't get the flames, they have 3 legit heavyweights in the AHL all with NHL experience and you can';t replace Stagan/ Lazar on the 4th line with one? Anyone on the Heat could not do any worse than either of those two pylons.
Crap, crap, crap, ross might be the worst skater in hockey....
Actually I only saw one punch land. Hathaway caught Johnson on the chin with a short one. Johnson does not get points for banging on shoulder pads or bull rushing the guy to the ice. Hathaway also should have gotten more for instigating a fight over an absolutely nothing burger hit.
