Clarkson takes a couple of extra whacks at Antero Niittymaki after he freezes the puck. Smith takes exception and shoves Clarkson on top of Niittymaki. Clarkson drops his gloves and grabs Smith who drop his mitts after a brief moment as well. They go back and forth with rights to start things off. Clarkson gets his left hand free and they spin around. Clarkson throws two short lefts while Smith struggles to get free. Clarkson then wrestles Smith to the ice and gets in a left while Smith is down.
Looks like Smith was swattin at flies around Clarksons head cause I didn't see many land from him. Clarkson landed more and got Smith down, win for Clarkson.
Winner Clarkson for always having that right hand free and ready to throw at will.
draw- neither landed anything damaging
Who the hell voted a winner in this one. This is the definition of a draw
its seems like clarkson got votes for not being flyer.it was weak fight with no winner and for sure its not clarkson usin peters-style in this one and throwin almost nothin.
Not much to comment on. Draw.
I gave it a draw. Both landed a few, both were tied up pretty well and both were tired at the end. DRAW
Neither fighter did anything to win the fight. Smith defended well and Clarkson just spun around as if on Saturday night fever. I think a wet paper bag would have held up against either side.
Smith lands a big right early before the two grapple and exchange a few punches that all appear to miss. Smith seems to be in control of the wrestling, despite allowing Clarkson to throw a haymaker uppercut which almost connects. The fight ends with a nifty Clarkson takedown when he realizes Smith was about to try to take him down. Clarkson throws a borderline cheapshit as they hit the ice. No winner here in an okay bout which never really got going.
Edge Clarkson. For the last shot. Hard to tell by the angle if it landed but I will give him the benifit of the doubt. NICE TILT!!!!
pretty close bout, not much happening. Clarkson employing that boring style of the "extended arm hold away and swinging once every ten seconds". Cheap shot at the end by Clarkson when Smith was down on the ice.
The fight was a draw, but Clarkson's last punch show's he's a no-ball loser.
Win for Smith! Only because the best shot from Clarkson was a cheap shot! Smith is not the type to hit a player when he is down! That was the best shot the Clarkson had!! And Smith was F up from the start!!!
woooo flyers F shit up again...yous all suck and dont know a thing about fighting...flyers are soooo gooooooooooood you all suck sooo gooooooooood
Not much connecting here, but definite edge to Clarkson.
Win goes to Claskson for the strong finish. Not a great fight tho.
Clarkson clear winner No such thing as cheap shot in a fight with a Flyer.
What the heck was Smith doing? Is he taking lessons from Eager? I think the Flyers still haven't gotten over Fedoruk geting KO'd by Orr last year. They're all afraid of getting hit, with the exception of Cote, who does nothing BUT get hit.
A BIT OF A CHEAP SHOT BY CLARKSON AT THE END - BUT IN A FIGHT I GUESS THERE REALLY ISN'T ANY 'CHEAP SHOTS'
win by the rookie Clarkson over Smith. last punch landed very solid.
I cannot figure out what smith was doing at the end of the fight? Trying to grab the back of his jersey? Draw.
No real punches connected from both players, but the take down goes to Clarkson, so i guess he gets the edge.
Looked like most of Clarkson's bombs landed on Smiths shoulder or armpit. Yawner. I wouldn't give this to either guy. Clarkson may have landed a shot or 2, but Smith controlled the situation.
solid draw, Smith had control but Clarkson was able to dodge around and get in some good shots. Looks like Smith had the height advantage, and an extra point to the fight in general for their being a history between the two.
Clarkson ownes the flyers captain! Thats twice now, Clarkson got the better of Smith...flyers suck
close one slight edge to Clarkson.
WOW, some Flyer hater's here!!! I don't know, Philly, are they the team with the most fights?? If not, it's not because of the lack of trying!!!! And all you guys do is insult, curse, and try to humiliate them. I implore you, they are not animals.They are just a team that has a few bad apples!!!!!! The Devil wins
Any Philly as whuppin is a great fight, I wonder when the last Flyer dropped the gloves for a true hockey purpose... Broad Street Morons
nice little rivalry these two have going.
1 st place Devils kick flyers butt on all levels ...
Clarkson reminds me of Jannsen...what a sucky fighter, even though he got the win. Can't wait for him to get his noggin rocked and hard.
not a great one, but okay. Smith controlled mostly, until Clarkson taked him down. no many punhches here either, but they landed some. looked like they landed about same amount of punches. Clarkson missed an uppercut later. A draw.
its always good when a flyer loses and i agree no such thing as a cheap shot when it comes to philly
