Scott Niedermayer hits Kyle Calder along the boards just as the horn sounds to end the first period. Mathieu Schneider goes after Niedermayer and a scrum develops. Scott Niedermayer and Mikael Samuelsson wrestle along the glass while Rob Niedermayer tries to get ahold of Samuelsson. Meanwhile, Moen and Lilja skate out to center ice and square off. Lilja grabs ahold of Moen and throws a right that Moen tries to duck away from. They spin around and Lilja throws a few short rights. Moen returns fire with a roundhouse right that knocks Lilja off-balance and to his knees. Moen gets in two more rights while Lilja tries to get back up to his feet. He eventually does, but falls back down once Moen connects with an uppercut. Moen gets in one last jumping uppercut and one of the referees and linesmen intervene immediately after. Other Penalties: Mikael Samuelsson, Rob Niedermayer and Scott Niedermayer each received a roughing.
Way to go Lilja just for giving it a shot.
Draw - Lilja won early, Moen later, no clear dominator, each got in shots then over.
What is with you dopes that declare losers for falling down on ICE, its slippery. If your gonna call a KO the winner better have actually KO'ed the loser. DRAW!!!!
Good to see a Red Wing drop the gloves
whats with moen spinning around like a dancing hippie in all his fights?
whats with you fartknockers voting winners 4 landing on top it is slippery you fags
Yea it was a good effort but leave the fighting to the big guys(Lilja this means you). Moen all the way
Gotta give it to Moen, especially with the beat down after Lilja was hanging on his leg. Looked more like a crappy IFL fight than a crappy NHL fight.
The league knows the wings have the most widespread fans. So to get them through the first couple rounds this year, they aren't going to let teams play physical vs them. You can bet the refs will be told, the wings are not allowed to be checked, no matter how clean, and anything after the whistle better result in a red wing power play..................... I am so fu**ing sick of watching this pus*y of a team.
Moen got the take-down. I'm a Wings fan for many years, and this is the softest team they've ever had. About time they showed some scrappiness.
Moen with NARROW WIN in small scrap.
Swing your partner round and round, then when he falls nail em on the ground!
Moen is not your prototypical enforcer - but I love to see him drop the mits. He's a tough guy, can take a punch, and deliver better. Not a heavy-weight, but he wins way more than he loses. He doesn't back down.
Give this fight to Moen...but.... WTF is up with Versus zooming out?!? That's the second time they've done that in as many weeks. WTF is wrong with them?!? They should just stay focused on the fight!!! Learn from TSN or Fox Sports...you don't zoom out, especially when Moen dropped Lilja with the uppercut.
What was Lilja thinking. Detroit has been pushed around all year. Now you can see why.
Edge Moen, credit to Lilja for having a go but a clear win for the Duck
I think it was an ok fight, havent seen a wing drop the gloves in a while. But Lilija got a good punch in in the begining but lost his blance when Moen swung at the head, i give the fight to Moen but i like Lilija for tryin.
both got in some good punches
Pretty Lame fight, especially considering how far away the refs were from getting involved. Ususally in that situation you get a thitd or fourth man in because one guy is taking such a beating because the refs aren't breaking it up.
lilja is the man
Pretty crap fight to be honest. Neither guy got any real good shots in but I'm giving the win to Moen because he got Lilja down at the end. Niedermayer was stupid to have hit Calder when the horn went though. There was no need for it and it was only ever going to stir up trouble.
I thought my Red Wings had superglue on the inside of their gloves? They can actually take them off?
I'm a Red Wings guy, but Moen won this fight. Almost a domination.
This video shows how important fighting, and enforcers are. These guys squared off to stop the skilled players from fighting, to me this is a great example of the value of fighting in the NHL by stopping huge scrums like what would have happened.
Mark my words, Detroit is good but they do not have the grit to survive in the playoffs. They will be lucky to make it out of the first round.
haahaha ilike how lilja just grabbed moens leg and held on for dear life when he got knocked down ..... no doubt win for moen
Moen whooped him
Lilja got in the first three punches and they all looked solid, the first one being the best. But the Moen hit him with a right hook, the type of punch most seasoned fighters can easily avoid, and yanked him down. Moen then took Lilja's helmet off and wailed on him. This one goes to Moen.
Lilja should be embarrassed holding on to his leg like that
I say it was a draw but if I was forced to pick a winner it would be Lilja because he got three really good shots on Moen and they all landed, Moen is just stronger and got a round house right in and took Lilja down to his knee then he attempted to throw about 2 or 3 more but maybe landed only one.
Lilja may get in the first punch and that was about it. Moen takes over and dominates the remainder of this bout. Winner Moen
moen a clear victor.
Turtle. Moen landed some nice punches as Lilja just held onto his leg. Where'd he learn to fight? Elementary School?
It's not if you win a fight early, late or in the middle.....its who's left standing at the end. Moen dominated. Lilja is lucky he didn't get Fedorkicked. Especially w/o any refs around.
