Bradley gets up and throws an overhand right that misses. Smith gets Bradley's jersey over his head and the linesmen are forced to move in and break things up. Other Penalties: Smith received an instigator and misconduct.
how is that an instigator and misconduct he pretty much said lets go and waited for bradely who dropped them first
Is sweater pulling and tractor pulling really a sport ? No. both are boring as was this tug fest.
Terrible. 2 minutes for roughing, in my book.
Crap fight and even crappier call against Smith for the instigator. Wake up Bettman, this was a prototype for fighting in the NHL. Bradley had his friggin gloves off before Smith did! Are the refs retarded or what?
clean hit. not much of a fight. draw.
You people are idiots! Bradley was holding Smiths arm the entire fight! He couldnt get away...Bradley isnt dumb, his ass was finished if smith got free!
They got all tied up, but at least, they were trying to get into a position to throw punches. The linesmen came in too quickly.
It was a nice hit. Kapanen can't keep his head up. Fight was horrible
I just love the way Smith stands up for his mates. No winner here, I'll call it a draw.
This is a shining example of why the instigator rule is bogus
A draw in my book. Only slight edge to Bradley as he was only one who did something. But he didn't land a punch though, just grazed a coule time? Smith handled well to Bradley jerseying him at the end.
good job SMITH for taking up for is teammate! But BRADLEY held his own
i dont think any punch landed.draw
smith wanted to get that right hand loose. no luck. draw.
great hit by bradley...smith is a good teammate and it's good to see him respond in that way...i gave it a draw
HOLY SHIIT!!!! Kapanen got STEAM ROLLED. That was a Awsome Hit. Glad he was ok. I give this one a Draw. I heard "Stitches" mentioned so I have to believe Smith would be who they are referring to and maybe that was why he wasn't as vibrant as usual in that bout. DRAW!!!
did smith even throw a punch!? bradley wins cause he wasnt defending the whole time
smith got the oldschool hockey jersey over the head move on bradley and could have easily uppercutted him as much as he wanted but let the linesmen come in and end it
i'd like to know, what are the linesmen rules for breaking up the stings when the jersey is over one's head. Sometimes they let them go, sometimes they step in very quikly...
not much of a fight but at least jason smith stood up for sami kap.cheap shot by bradley ,also cote chased brashear around all game donald kept on skating...
I didn't see Jason Smith throw one punch. What a loser. Why go in to defend your teamate by dropping the gloves, then not throw a punch. I don't get it. Unless he got hurt.
that was a sweet hit on kapanen
Yeah I agree, Smith doesn't have it anymore. He should stick to just slashing and cross checking people. Bradley threw several punches none of them landing really well but a few connected, maybe just brushed Smith.
Clean hit by Bradley. Fair retaliation from Smith. The fight was mostly a hug fest, but at least Bradley landed a punch or two. Edge to Bradley.
What the hell was that??? Smith instigates this fight and then just holds on and does nothing... Yeah, i know i know. People are gonna say well Smith is just trying to send a message to the other team. The only message i got out of this is "Smith doesn't know how to fight anymore."
Absolute draw. I don't think either Bradley or Smith landed a punch so it's hard to pick a winner. Bogus instigator call, but it was a good job by Smith to engage Bradley. Kapanen got right up, but still, when a big guy runs over a little guy like that, you gotta do what you gotta do.
It's intimidating to know that if you check someone while Jason is on the ice that he'll skate right over and stretch out your jersey. I guess it's too much to ask you throw a punch at 48 years old. Leave the fighting to Cote old man!
if your gonna stand up for a teammate at least throw a punch you lame duck draw
Bradley with the ONLY offense, but it ends with both standing.
Not really sure why there was an instigator penalty here. Bradley looked more than willing to go when Smith challenged. That's a far cry from someone getting jumped after landing a clean check, which is what usually happens.....DRAW
Didn't Downey get 20 games for a hit like that? Smith has to come right in after that.
Cool for Smith sticking up for his team mate. Would have been cooler if he actually landed a punch or two.
smith didnt want to throw so obviously loses here
