2nd Period - 11:412001-2002 Regular Season
Behind the Isles' net, these two are pinned along the boards and start some shoving. They move away from the boards, the gloves shed and Domi throws three lefts. Domi got his gloves off quicker and has the momentum. The first knocks off Cairns' helmet, the next two miss, both going over Cairns' head. Cairns is ducking and just falls. Cairns pulls Domi down a bit with him and they get back up together. Domi paws at him with the left, and then throws a left punch that goes into the back of Cairns' neck as he's ducking again. Cairns now spins up and throws a monster left that bounces off of Tie's helmet (since Tie's head is just as hard, no need to remove that helmet). Tie counters with a left that runs out of room by Cairns shoulder. Reach advantage in play here now. Another monster left by Cairns! This time Domi's attempting to pull up Cairns' jersey as he gets caught. Pop goes that helmet! (so much for the previous theory). With both guys swinging hard, balancing in between punches is necessary here. Big right by Cairns hits Domi's back/shoulder. Another right hits Domi in the same area. Domi counters with his own huge left! Over-the-top left by Cairns gets Domi again! A left uppercut by Cairns misses. Big-time left by Domi now, and because of angle, it's hard to tell if it hits or not since Cairns was moving in the same direction as the punch to begin with. Another big left by Domi! No doubt that one landed. Each wind up for another haymaker and Cairns gets his right in before Domi gets his left, and Domi goes down to a knee! Domi's popping up quickly, and Cairns misses with a left. Each go for a simultaneous punch again, and this time Domi gets his in first. Huge right there. Cairns attempts a right that goes over Domi's head, and now Domi swings a right over Cairns' head. Cairns swings a left, and it doesn't look like it lands from the camera angle. Domi swings a right that can't quite reach Cairns' as Cairns has the long arm stretched out again. Domi pulls Cairns down with the left and throws a right that bops Cairns on the top of the head. A right by Cairns, but angle makes it too hard to judge. Cairns switches hands for the umpteenth time and Domi throws a right that sails over a ducking Cairns. Cairns attempts to straighten up and Domi's got him a little tangled in his own jersey. Domi leans on Cairns and gets the takedown. Goooood fight.
