Other Penalties: Tarnasky received a boarding and misconduct.
fkn zebras, they're the biggest threat out there these days. assistant ref schampoo should be suspended 25 games - intent to injure/blow to the head. make an example of him! bloody disgrace.
good job linesmen, you should be real proud of yourselves, real class acts. They let a guy get his spine fused to the boards, but won't let his buddy take revenge. I forked over $80 bucks to see this snoozefest and they stopped the only thing worth watching!! alright, i lied, i watched it on tv, but still!!!
that was horseshit.... i'm goin with DRAW, you don't get a win for a three on one punch
what twits would even give a vote to Tarnasky for a punch thrown when Allen was being held !!
couldn't care less about either team, and i'm also going to call it a draw out of spite. stupid officials need to stay out of the way...the result of this "fight" is completely their fault.
That Is Some F***ed Up $hit. Takes Some Real Retards To Jump In And Grab A Guy When Hes Tryna Go To The Aid Of His Player, And It Takes An Even Bigger Pussy 2 Through A Punch When The Guys Getting Held. Gave This A Draw And A 1 For Crap Fight. Nice Fight Linesman
Draw at best...how can anyone give the nod to a gutless coward like Tarnasky...that's something like only Sean Avery would do!! First of all, he should get suspended for the cheap-shot hit from behind that he put on Mike VanRyn...that was a dangerous hit from behind, a potential career ending type of hit!! Where has the honor and respect for the players and the game gone to?? The NHL doesn't need PUNK's like Tarnasky trolling the ice, taking blatant cheap shots on real hockey players!! The sucker punch Tarnasky threw at Allen with the two linesmen holding him back is completely inexcusable, mostly on Tarnasky's part, but also the linesmen were irresponsible in making Allen so vulnerable!! Brian Allen is an excellent hockey player with honor and courage, unlike Tarnasky, and I hope he gets the chance to exact his revenge on that gutless coward!! Colin Campbell better throw the book at Tarnasky with a 25 game suspension for that cowardly act!!
This was not a fight. The Ref should receive a game miscounduct for the third man in. What a moron. no winner
Here is where things will later get out control....its those referees getting into the action too soon.. I guarantee that Tarnasky will get his ass kicked with cheap shots on it own.
What a cheap shot. You don't wack a guy in the face when your opponent can't defend himself. That guy broke the tough guy code for sure.
it was a fucking bullshit fight,tarnasky is a stupid pussy and the refs are a bunch of fucking morons.it just pisses me off so much seeing this,allen was helpless
Why didn't the zebra's let them go!? props to allen sticking up for the teammate
What a load of crap. Stupid refs needed to back off and let them go at it. Ref interference in the fights is what causes injuries...Allen had no way to defend himself with his arms being held. Sheez.
draw because the punch was with the officials trying to break it up. Just let them go
Linesman screw this up by holding on to Allen. Tarnasky takes advantage while showing he has zero class or courage. No room in the NHL for this kind of stuff.
First of all, let me say this. Keith Jones mentioned this same thing right here the other day on vs. so for a commentator to have to mention it, it must be a problem in the league. These linesman are jumping in on fights way too early, and it's dangerous for them and obviously dangerous for the fighters. I personally don't care what happens to the linesman when they decide to jump in too early, but it's ashame when a player can't protect himself from taking punches just because a linesman is determined there will be no fights in his game. Secondly, I voted Bryan Allen as the winner of this fight just so it doesn't go down on this website that Tarnasky beat him. That was a flat out sucker punch.
Cheap cheap cheap cheap cheap!
I can't stand Tarnasky. He's always tough when playing the Panthers knowing they got no enforcers and no fighters. The Lighting can't win a single game on the road so they are just a frustrated bunch! Let him try that s**t on Boogard or LaRaque....He'll get dropped so bad, he'll never start a fight again! What a softy...Be a man!
wow tarnasky is a bitch
WOW. dirty, cheap, punch from Tarnasky... but helluva KO. Yipes !!! Allen got KTFO!
This was a non fight. Tarnasky threw a cheap one. The linesman got Allen drilled. Stay out!
Thats why the Zebras need to get the F%ck out of the way when guys are going to go. Someone could get badly hurt with those idiots holding arms and blocking views...Send the memo Colin Campbell.
for attitude adjustment purposes, they should put tarnasky and boulerice in a locked room for 10 minutes with laraque, orr and godard
F****ng cheap from Tarnasky!
The linesmen caused that injury need to let them fight, that's why they need to get the F out of the way!!! Cheap shot by Tarnasky BTW!
TARNASKY IS A CHEAP SHOT,THESE CHEAP SHOTS ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN AS FIGHTING HAS BECOME VERY HONORABLE THESE DAYS BUT SOMEONE FORGOT TO TELL TARNASKY WHO WILL GET HIS SOON ENOUGH! FLORIDA NEEDS AN ENFORCER.
tarnasky = punk ass real tough guy to throw a punch when refs are holding the other guy - he'll get his - watch the next time someone drops the gloves with him, payback
Linesmen dominated this one. I ook for paybacks tonight in the rematch game.
A double dinger on this play for Tarnasky. The hit didn't look all that dirty, he looked like he was finishing a check but Van Ryn fell awkwardly into the boards. Stupid linesmen are in the way during the square off and Nick ko's Allen while both are being held. Keep in mind, this is also pay back for Allen going after Prospal much earlier in the game after an accidental boarding by Prospal who is NOT a dirty player. Couldn't happen to a nicer team, stinkin Panthers.
Big time sucker punch...players shouldn't punch when refs are holding. A real tough guy wouldn't do that.
I love how the panther announcers say Tarnasky goes after Allen, when it was Allen who instigated the fight.
one must protect oneself at all times. a cheap shot is a cheap shot
hahaha gotta love tarno nice cross ..........refs need to stop jumping in early if both guys got the mits dropped let em go
Refs blew it twice once on the boarding major and once when both players dropped the gloves but they dont let the boys go and allen gets popped because of it. I don't blame tarnasky- they both wanted to go so let em go refs
Happened quick with Allen coming for Tarnasky and as they go to lock horns the refs roll in to stop them, one guy gets a free hand and that guy was Tarnasky. Could have easily been Allen who got free and in that 5 seconds popped Tarns. Nothing cheap here at all, guns ablazing fight with a clear winner. Allen fights smaller guys and hides behind refs otherwise a lot. Tarnasky wades in with anyone anytime, takes his odd licking in style without crying. All you Allen mama boys, go give poor Allen a big hug and say "there there, you poor boy that big mean old Nick Tarnasky hit you first, how dare him"...waaawaaaawaaaa!
What a punch. who would vote for Allen win he got KOed with one punch
Cheap shot!!! Tarnasky needs another beat-down from Lucic for that! draw, cant vote for a garbage play like that!
I voted draw as there isn't a linesman option.
why the fuk didn't the refs let them go?
What a piece of shit that Tarnasky is for sucker punching him as he is being help. F you Tarnasky.
that qualifies as a fight? More like a single cheap shot......
Crap fight, good game refs.
I was at this game and it seemed to me that Allen initiates the fight. for some reason the linesmen tried to prevent it from hapening and the result is Allen getting bombed. there are two faults here 1 for the linesmen breaking tring to break up a scrap and Tarnasky for punching a defensless player.
Garbage job by a garbage player, Tarnasky is gutless, two ultra cheap shots, his suspension should be severe......and cripes, please Mr Linesman, let the players fight....... righteous job by Allen sticking up for his teammate
