Apparently Tucker high sticked on Kovalev, so the russian grabbed the puck and went directly towards Tucker, applying that fantastic elbow. That was one of the greatest moves I´ve seen for years, IMO the fight was over then. Tucker tried to get back, but there were too many people interfering. I really enjoyed the way Kovalev actually started it.

I'm a long time visitor but felt compelled to finally join up to comment on one of the most brilliant retaliatory hits in the history of hockey. This play never stops being hilarious. Tucker delivers an elbow to the chops of Kovalev. Then, Tucker swings his stick wildly at another player. Meanwhile, Kovalev manages to get the puck back, circle around, plan his offensive, retain possession of the puck and then just railroad Tucker like the Red Army through Germany. Tucker gets up and wants immediate retribution and gets one or two in before the scrum prevents any more damage to Kovalev. Sure, it's a penalty on Kovalev for a dirty hit, but that's mitigated in the eyes of the entire hockey world because it was on Tucker. This is one of the best dirty hits in the history of the NHL and will always be good for laughs. The actual fight is irrelevant. Kovalev wins on the hit alone.

Tucker deserved every last bit of that elbow! Did you leaf fans not see his little cheap shot to begin with? Of course not, the only thing you guys see these days are losses...lots of them. Go Flyers.

LOL, I remember that one. Watch closely a few seconds b4 the hit. Tucker tries to throw a blatant elbow (major suspension in todays game) and then slashes a couple guys. Kovalev skates in circles until he can line up Tucker and WHAM!

Greatest play ever. Tucker is the uber bitch player and he deserves to get run over, much like he got dropped with one punch by Bouillon. Way to put him in his place that little bitch.
