Doan crushes Alex Tanguay with an open-ice hit near the side boards earlier. Later, Laperriere skates over and challenges Doan. They drop the gloves and immediately tie up, each fighter struggling to get an arm free. Laperriere takes Doan's helmet off just before Doan gets an arm free and throws three rights and an uppercut while the two skate into the glass. Doan throws a right cross and Laperriere is able to pull his arm out of Doan's grasp, proceeding to connect with four rights to the back of Doan's head. Laperriere throws another right to the back of Doan's head with Laperriere's elbow pad hitting Doan. They grapple some more and Doan throws a short right, an uppercut, and a left before he throws Laperriere down to the ice.
Pretty Good Fight. i call it a draw.
Doan landed a couple more than Lappy. Lappy gets free well at one point(middle of the fight) but Doan avoided quite well of those few Lappy's good attempts. Doan landed earlier a few short punches but doing damage well though. After Lappy's attack it's even mostly. Doan landed partly his uppercut though. A good takedown by Doan. I give slight edge/edge for Doan. A nice fight.
Not a great fight but Doan held his own against a heavyweight. And for all of the Doan haters - maybe you'd be happier watching women's basketball, you obviously don't like hard-core hockey players. btw - still makin my way through old fights.
