Laperriere decks Cowan with a hit along the boards. Cowan takes exception and goes after Laperriere who lingers at center ice to wait for a response. They drop the gloves and grab ahold of each other. They immediately start going toe-to-toe with punches: Laperriere with rights, Cowan with lefts. Laperriere loses his balance and falls to the ice with Cowan getting in a left as they are going down. The linesmen are right there to grab them and end the fight.
Great quck fight YOu never see these fights anymore. Laperriere won the first 5 secs, COwan won the last, and got the knockdown punch.
gotta love both of these guys - not quite heavies, yet they sure throw bombs with bad intentions
Alot of punches thrown. few landed by both.
wild suck and so does there coach and g.m. FROGS
camera way too close. Announcers were right that laperriere got in a right--wrong that he got in a 2nd right. The hits by cowan seem to be as often and hard as by ian. Draw. getting a guy to go down doesnt mean u win the fight. the guy who wins the fight hurts less than the guy who lost. Its not boxing--its fighting..you end up with a black eye and stitches but got the take down---you lost. Mailman if you read this again--like I say this isnt boxing. You dont give points for knocking a guy down. The guy who wins a fight--is the guy who hurts less. They dont award wins in fighting. You dont go rounds and you dont go rise up the class ladder. You either have a black eye and stitches or you dont. If you are the guy who has a broken nose but you landed on top of your opponent--he won. This fight is a draw--cause both of them hurt the other one the same amt.
Laperriere loses his balance, falls to the ice and that means he loses the fight? OK??? DRAW
Some people dont know the dif between a KO and a KD (knock down) Either way a couple of tough dudes who in no way are Super Heavy s but know and do their job well.
Cowan won because of the knockdown. Nice to see that mouthy Laperriere hit the deck.
Cowan hangs tight and then drops him with a hard left.
Laperriere did not seam to land any of his punches.
Wow, Cowan with an unusally good showing. Win to Cowan, but both sides had their moments. Nice little toe-to-toe scrap. Whoever said that was a KO, id suggest laying off the booze for a little while.
didn't look like cowan hit him at all. looked like he slipped.
They'll probably go again tonight (tuesday) to finish things off, plus the Nucks will be lookin for revenge
Ian landed a few rights early. Cowan knocks him to the ice with a good left to end and take the win. Short fight dut a decent one.
A short but spirited toe to toe fight. Cowan did KD's Lappy. Cowan with better late=EDGE Cowan.
Nice fight. Gotta give it to Cowan with the knock down.
Someone stated that they don't give wins for "take downs". That was no takedown, you need to watch it again. Your comments made me watch again. Cowan is throwing alot of lefts inside of Laperriere's rights, and they appear to be landing. As Lapperriere goes down, he pulls cowan down also, while cowan is still throwing. I think, from what I saw, he goes down by a punch. Win Cowan.
nice fight - cowan cause of the knockdown + more punches landed
`its always good to see a french man get knocked..If they want seperation, gettem out of our league!!!!!!!
If your decision on who won this fight is based on the attached video... there is something else you need to know. When the fight ended, Laperriere went to the box and Cowan was skated to the locker room by a trainer. If Laperriere lost this fight, I would hate to see what his opponent looks like when he wins. At under 200lbs, I think he is the best pound for pound in the NHL. Takes on guys who outhweight 20-30lbs every week. At the very least he is brave.
lappy IMO landed more shots
great bout!! :D
good fight, bad camera angle
Laperriere is a crap player with not much talent. Cowan knocked his teeth in. I give it to Cowan. Ian only got one real punch it before falling down.
Did someone just say this was a KO? Pass the bong this way cuz I want some of what you're on. With the recent rapeage of Fedoruk by Orr, you should know what a KO is. Anyways, slight edge to Cowan in this short but spirited bout.
Cowen owned Laperiere, leveling him at the end.
LAPERRIERE IS SEAN AVERY, WITH A LITTLE BETTER FIGHTER RATING COWAN WINS THIS ONE, .... KO.......... AVERAGE FIGHT
