Toni Lydman sends Todd White flying with a hip on knee hit. Kovalchuk quickly goes after Lydman, but is pushed down to the ice by Stafford. Kovalchuk gets back to his feet and grabs Stafford. They drop the gloves and Kovalchuk throws two rights at a bent over Stafford. Stafford fires back with a right. Kovalchuk gets in two more rights while Stafford falls to the ice.
good to see chuk has balls when it counts
Anyone see the purses fly?
Hard to call this a fight...should have been roughing penalties at best!
how can you fags say thats a fight and a win you Kova........? nothing landed except one right that hit staffords shoulder!!!!! clean hit also, th eonly reason staff lost his jersey is because Kova was ripping it off the give staff a good eastern euro hump n' dump
How can anyone give a win? No punches were landed...
you'll 'win' every time if don't give the other guy time to drop his gloves.. not an evenly started fight, so the outcome doesn't matter.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA That is just way too funny!!!
crap fight....and as always Harry Neale getting the wrong players names, I"m glad he's off Hockey Night in Canada
stafford probably would have kicked the crap out of kovy if kovy didnt get the gloves off and pulled jersey'd stafford before he got the gloves off. nothing but a draw here folks
holy jesus! Scary.
Crappy fight. He needs to stick to scoring.
Why did they even bother dropping the gloves?
This was nothing but humorous but it's always fun to see a "star" get aggressive like that.
Absolutely love how Kovalchuk immediately jerseys Stafford and just throws. Obviously doesn't know how to do too well, but you gotta love the Grimsonesque move.
good to see the emotional outburst from a star player, but Ilya's lack of fighting experience was evident.
stafford. was trying to step up for tillinder. ended up gettin his ass kicked. hes tried this before with chris neil and other people. he shouldnt drop the gloves. he doesnt usually win...
The Buffalo homer announcers talk about "his (Kovy's) shadow winning" but he stuck up for his teammate and landed the only blows in the scrap. Thrashers need grit!
Kovalchuk was aggressor here. He had a clear pure adrenaline here, which causes well the win for him. Edge Kovalchuk.
Really not much of a fight. But the "W" goes to Kovalchuk for sure. If Stafford has stayed on his feet, it might have been a decent scrap. Nice to see Ilya throwing a few bombs. Gotta love that.
i cnt blame ilya for what he did i disagree 100% with knee on knee but good fight
"ive seen kovalchuk shadowbox and the shadow won every time" well kovalchuk won this one
Kovalchuk isn't the one that lost his jersey
A great fight from a player who rarely fights (Kovalchuk). When he gets mad, look out...you may well see something like this!
So glad Harry Neale is off HNIC.
I always like to see the bigger scoring names drop em to show they aren't going to take sh*t. Kovalchuk didn't look great but he won this one easy.
I hesitated between Draw and Kovalchuk because Stafford wasnt expecting that.. But Kovalchuk won
Goonery...what fight are you watching? Stafford lost his jersey.....Announcers are horrible in this clip.."Ive seen Kovalchuk shadow box and the shadow wins every time". Well the shadow just beat up Stafford!
They each got 5 for fighting the only thing Kovalchuk should have gotten was 2 mins for losing his jersey.Kovalchuk cant fight anyway.Lame!
Buffalo Announcers are as bad as there fans. Kovy has been in a few scraps and I have never seen him hit. The whole city of Buffalo as well as its team lacks character.
