Lotsa punches thrown, few actual connecting. Props for effort and malice, not much for fulfillment. I see a draw, but wouldn't argue for long against a Benn win.
Lot of whiffs by Wood even when Jamie initially went down. Looked like Jamie got more solids in.
There ya got mates. It doesn't get much better for a Captain than Jamie Benn and Miles Wood should one as well. Two big, strong guys really getting after it with mean intentions. Neither landed a bomb but they both got fair measure of the other. Forget the home cookin' boys. These two earned a draw and a lot of respect from anyone that's ever done this and from the teams!
Not sure anyone actually connected. Benn with the edge in a fight Wood was probably shocked to be a part of. When Benn wants to go, Benn wants to go. I do miss this side of Jamie. As talented of a fighter as he is a player but just wished it would have sparked a little more fire in his team mates. A little too late in the game I reckon.
Not sure how this is a rated a 7..? They both kicked the sh*t out of the air though!!! Draw and a 4 just off of the anger by both fighters
Wood was tuned up by the Captain. If Been gets the left glove off from the drop, the kid would have been spitting teeth.
Good tilt. Benn gets the win. It's a shame Benn couldn't get his left glove off for a moment. Benn prefers his left and you see when he switches hands he tries to throw a left but his damn glove is still on.
Great (albeit rare) legitimate animosity... with Benn early Wood middle and Benn late
Both guys throwing with bad intentions and missing often. Even scrap IMO.
lets breakdown the components here(for both fighters); anger-9 intent-9 execution-4 at first glance this tilt 'looked' good, but there's better fight sequences in 'War Of The Gargantuas'... Wood might want to be a tough guy since his dad was 5' 6", but until he learns to connect he's gonna keep looking silly against other cats his size... Benn in full Captain mode as he handles the youngster.. #14 FTW
Great old school scrap
A good and spirited scrap. Neither one lands a lot of the punches but the effort was there.
Best fight of the year in the early season
Lots of misses but the effort was there. Benn takes win but not by much.
Finally! a real hockey fight!
Nice tilt and Benn wins
Jamie with a clear W. Both guys with evil intent though but Benn had the better exchanges. Benn, 6.
so much anger! I loved it! Benn edge
Great fight! Benn for the win!
Benn with the win
Tital domination by Jamie Benn. If he hadnt of tripped it could have been worse for Wood. The only two punches landed were when Benn was down and getting back up
benn control most of the time but good spirited bout
All Benn !!
Benn leading by example..........team not playing well of late so he sends a message to the team that they need to find their passion. Benn knocking on Wood that they early road woes get fixed. Winner Captain Benn!
Great, angry fight, loved it! Benn has always been pretty tough and a great captain.
Moral of the story? Do not cross check Benn when building up to a fight. Nice Tilit!
holy moly. rock'em sock'em robots.
Another great fight by Benn. Good for him, down 3-0 in the third and showing his team he's still in it. Benn is a great captain, his guy is an old school, throwback kind of hockey player!
Nice little battle with purpose-punches thrown.
Not sure how anyone can say it was that close, when the fight ends with a clear knockdown by Benn. Main camera angle is bad, but others show he connected, knees buckled and Wood was on his knees. As noted, Benn got his hold with glove on, or Wood may have been knocked out when Benn switched, as he chucks 'em better with the left and Wood was exposed.
fight of the year candidate
Great dust up. Gotta appreciate Benn and his willingness to get the team going and leading by example. As a few have mentioned, this had an old school feel. Win Benn
Young Wood challenging the veteran Jamie, and got what he was looking for
Benn early,Wood late. Spirited slug fest with bad intentions on both sides.
Good fight. I hate to see these guys punching the helmets and visors. Not good on the hands. Miss the old time fights.
Wood is game but overmatched here. The heavier fists prevailed for Benn. Good tilt.
Entertaining and both were eager to keep it going, but a very sloppy draw....
Well, about time both guys got "smacked around" a little.. Benn gets away with a lot & has always been a bit of a wise a** as is Wood ... Both good players with Benn, at this point of both careers, much more accomplished.. Give it a DRAW ... Those Dallas announcers are ALMOST as bad as Boston announcers ... Imagine Jack A** Edwards if that was CHARA fighting !!!!!
draw for me
I replayed this numerous times and could not tell if the last punch by benn landed so I gave it a draw .Oh and Behn Wilsons writing style was first introduced by me and then he copied it and takes it as his own. that is a copywrite infringement pal!
Gotta love Benn. Your Captain, and best player getting into toe to toe brawls against tough guys. Throwback player. Haven't seen this kinda stuff since Iginla. Love it. What player is not gonna follow a Captain like that?
Ol style rock'em sock'em. Draw.
What a back and forth! There were moments both went down but they got back up, which is one the hallmarks of a good bout. Benn had it early but Wood stormed back and the draw sort of happened in the takedown. Badass.
Good fight. No Puzzys
That was a good scrap. Been with the win
Now there was some evil intent behind those punches. Those boys actually wanted to fight each other. Good job and I give the decision to Benn.
Not sure why the announcer would say "that will bring some energy into the arena" when the home team was up 3-0
finally a good tilt ..... Benn early and late ... gets the nod.
Wow! An absolute war. Mutual props to both guys but, Benn clearly won this. Wood certainly entertains when he drops the gloves.
Benn gets the nod. Woods only good shots were when Jamie was on his knees
Out of all the punches thrown Benn connected the most and had control most of the way through. Good tough fight.
Awesome fight, mainly bc they are both so enthusiastic lol. Obvious edge to Benn but props to Wood as well.
That`s what i'm talking about!!!! Old School MTF's
Great fight with fists flying.
Fight of the nascent season. Hopefully, more of this kind of tilts to come?! I give the fight to Jamie Benn, even though I hate the sonomabiach!
Great fight...want to see these guys go again
Jamie been is Wood's dad
Had Benn got the glove off before hitting Wood I would have given it to him but since not I lean towards Wood
Wood for the win for no reason other than, um, don't swing with your glove on.
AMAZING OLD SCHOOL FIGHT! Was there happened right in front of me. Great job by both guys
Who cares who won, that was an angry event!
classy Benn as always. thumbs up
Benn is a BEAST!!
Nerds on this site. Some serious punches landed. Great fight.
Best fight of year All hail Jamie Benn Amazing to observe Dallas continue to underperform despite the fanatical leadership Benn provides
Light heavyweight great fight! Haymakers thrown by both guys, but Benn got the better punches landed here. Great effort by both
It was a great fight between two big men
Such a weak move slashing like that...hate that...entertaining bout and props to the refs not breaking it up prematurely, surprised they didn’t jump I as soon as wood wobbeled or when Benn went down briefly.
Refs are like yeah...gotta make sure this fizzles out before catching a rogue right.
Somehow the zebras forget to get int there and the scrap goes on even after each player takes one knee (at different times) and the result is a spirited scrap full of malice. Benn had the edge IMHO.
Jamie Benn took him out back, and beat the F$#K out of him!
I give it a 5 and a draw... looked more than what it was. Slow motion showed that very little landed. Benn's best shots were with his glove on so does that really count? Wood landed 1 single punch when Benn was down on one knee. Does that really count? Again, draw and a 5. A 7 really???? For a fight when nothing really connected???
All the votes for Benn must be Stars' homers. That fight was not close to being a straight win for Benn. Both got in almost the same # of actual blows and only Benn lost his lid. Hilarious on the "full captain mode" comment. Dude was on the end of 2nd game with a total of 1 goal scored for his entire team in both games...if he were a true leader, he might have tried scoring instead of taking bad penalties both games and / or getting shut out in this one.
Benn started off strong giving it to Wood, then Wood hammered Benn on the ear and side face to stun them both. Wood by margin.
Jamie Benn aka G Eazy, is a total boss against morning wood. I like both guys but Benn as the captain not taking any crap is something to be admired. I gave the edge to Benn, although like I said before, it appears balance is a struggle for fighters this year. Idk what it is but nonetheless, I crapped my pants last night after eating soul food. Watch out for undercooked jerk chicken. It was like niagra falls out my tookis bunker. Good day gentleman
