Right off of the faceoff Lapointe finds Stortini and challenges him. The two drop the gloves and grab ahold of each other near the side boards. Stortini quickly gets Lapointe's helmet off and they grapple for a bit. Lapointe connects with two short rights to the side of Stortini's helmet. Lapointe then gets Stortini bent over and throws four hard rights. Stortini comes back with two rights and an uppercut. They get in-tight and Lapointe throws three more short rights to the side of Stortini's head. Stortini unloads a flurry of four rights, an uppercut and two body shots while Lapointe tries to move away from the punches. Lapointe tries a locked-out right and then takes Stortini to the ice. The linesmen are right there to jump in and break things up.
Marty's the man! He's as strong as a bull and it showed here against a guy who loses a lot of fights.
Lapointe had the advantage early . Stortini started to cnnect with the better punches and it looks like Marty realizes this and takes him down. I give the win to Stortini. If this was a rassln match Marty would be the winner.
Atta boi old marty good fight ill give it a draw marty had it at the first but stortini ca back at the end even fight Draw
Great figth i love that Chicago sound effeck when Blackhawks plaer punch thats really awesome!!!!!!!
Will you damn idiots stop scoring these fights like a UFC bout??? "Lapointe pulls Stortini down to the ice, yay he wins" DF's DRAW
Meh... As an Oiler fan I can say Stortini is not the heavyweight I thought he was.
Have to say draw or very slight edge to Lapointe.
close fight IMO. Both landed shots. Would like to see them go again sometime.
both got in some good punches - stortini a couple of haymakers, but too close to call as lapointe more than held his own
Solid fight here. DRAW, both landed about same amount
Lapoint is a tough scrappy player, I give him a slight win in this one
Lapointe is an underrated fighter, he had to step up after they sent down Koci. Hawks suck though, I can't wait till the Ruutu, Toews, Havlat line. The Hawks need Cherepanov like a fat person needs a doughnut
Stortini, a few good knocks at the end. Good to see Lapointe back into it, still throws a mean right hand. Lapointe won this one although it was close. I didn't like the takedown at the end, although if he didn't do it, Marty probably would have lost the fight.
Close but Lapointe had the better first half with a close second half.
I figured LaPointe was getting a little long in the tooth for this kind of thing but shows he can still dish it out. Huge size advantage for Stortini but Marty has always had a rep for being super strong for his size and it showed with the solid punches and take down of a much bigger opponent. Stortini is not a very good fighter in my opinion.
Not a bad fight I expected Stortini to take this one but didn't, I don't think it was a trip at the end its just the point that there is no doubt that Lapointe is the physically strongest player in the NHL bar none.
Pretty good fight by both win Lapointe. He just kept more active through the entire fight unlike Stortini who got a going here and there but not a lot of damage done either way.
Lapointe is truly missed in Detroit just for this kind of toughness. Gave up some size physically, But not when it comes to effort. Martin gets the nod. good fight.
Lapointe came right out of the gun with some very nice headshots. Towards the end, Stortini surprised me with his little comeback, as short as it lasted though. A good fight all-around.
both players unloaded but lapointe gains a slight advantage vbased on the early punches.
lapointe.. ouch lol nice comeback by stortini.. mad it close but i give it to lapointe
Win Martin Lapoint.
Lapointe has always been a tough (and overpaid) customer.
Lapointe seemed to be getting the better of Stortini. Then, Stortini landed that upper-cut, which slowed Lapointe down and made him go for the takedown. In the video, there appeared to be quite a size difference between the two. Props for Lapointe going with the bigger guy.
You gotta love how Lapointe just bee-lined for Sortini...like they both had an appointment for the scrap.
Real good fight. Old guy still got it. He won the first 3/4 of the fight. And got the takedown.
I'm giving the win to Lapointe because he landed a few more shots and was on top when they went down at the end but it was nice to see Stortini actually throw a few punches instead of just trying to hug the other guy to death like he normally does. Good scrap.
Good scrap. Lapointe had the early edge but Stortini got in a couple of good ones that landed flush. Slight win to Stortini.
Good fight. Win Stortini.
I thought Stortini was supposed to a Heavyweight, hes terrible has he won a fight all year?
zak almost won one!! oilers suck and im not just saying that because i hate them. they really do suck!!! hahahahaha go flames ?????are you crazy willywink, lapointe strongest player in the nhl??????? you need to watch more hockey before you can say anything at all .Thats like saying stortini is the best fighter in the nhl. Your a real funny guy willy
Martin Lapointe? Garbage! He won't fight heavyweights and he does the lamest Mick Vukota, Kevin Maguire move, the old grab the pant leg and put em to the ice move when he's in trouble. Someone outta be fired for making this bum a captain. I'm so happy he's not in Detroit. You think he would have learned at least SOMETHING about fighting from Kocur OR McCarty. Just when Stortini's going to keep pounding on him Marty pulls the pant leg. BOOOOO!! -Jim
Stortini finished strong Was that a trip at the end?
