Gratton takes a run at Artyukhin along the boards as Artyukhin pushes him to the ice. Gratton gets back up to his feet and skates down ice, challenging Artyukhin and the two drop the gloves and square off near the side boards. Artyukhin grabs on and throws two straight rights to start things off. Gratton responds with a couple of rights and the two go back and forth with right hands for a short while. Gratton switches hands and throws a left jab before pulling Artyukhin's jersey up and over his head. Gratton then throws three rights and tries to shake his elbow pad off before the linesmen jump in. Gratton skates away with a cut under his left eye.
Greta job by both player here. DRAW all the way though. Maybe Artyukhin landed couple more.
Definite win for Gratton. But it's hard to hit somebody with a visor on.
graton all the way i can't see why people would see it any other way.artyukin threw alot but nothing was landing at all.gratton landed about 4-5 and burried him with punches at the end not even realy that close...win gratton!!
Not only did Gratton land more, he had to deal with a visor...............what a douche Arty is never taking that thing off........
Artyukhin is coming back. The toughest line in Hockey Artyukhin, Gratton, Tarnasky
Gratton gets his ass kicked.
