Other Penalties: Nokelainen received a charging; Drury a roughing.
Nice hit. Nothing fight, draw.
Looked like a fight I saw one time in Oklahoma. Awful ! ! ! DRRRAWW
Drury has been a stiff offensively this year so maybe he is going to try enforcing as a way to earn his overpriced salary.
Malik needs to keep his head up. He got creamed and it looked clean to me. Crap fight- Draw
Clean hit, no punches landed in the fight, draw. But anyone who thinks Drury was stupid for sticking up for a teammate, clean hit or not, is a retard. That's the stuff that captains are made of. Those of you criticizing Drury need to watch a little more hockey than what you see here on this site.
Drury sticking up for his teamate that is qualitys of a true leader
For Drury not being a fighter i have to give him the edge in the fight
WOW a bad charging call on a very nice hit and Drury did the right thing and takes a chance. More open ice hits and less cheap Euro crap makes the NHL very entertaining. Oh and kids should see that hit as reference point of how to blast the Dmen and not make it cheap. They taught me in football, hockey, and rugby KEEP YOUR HEAD UP AND IT WON'T GET HANDED TO YOU.
Clean shoulder hit. Your either blind or a Rangers fan if you saw it otherwise. Drury did what your supposed to do when your team mate gets leveled. Malik is probably the most popular Ranger since he dropped that puke Avery in practice.
Sasky, watch the playoffs sometime and you'll see why people pay for him.
another typical cop out by the so called ref's! How is that not a instagator...he should ve got the 10 min misconduct but they gave Drury a 2min roughing? And there was no charge it was a clean hit..absoulutly pathetic no balls by the refs!
That was dumb of Drury to risk getting hurt in a very boring fight.
Nokelainen definitely instigated the fight with that impressive headshot, but doesn't handle himself too well against Drury. It's pretty even, and turns out to be a poor move by Drury: Nokelainen was about to get a penalty for the hit, before Drury made himself a penalty target as well.
nice hit by the kid from finland, i can't spell his name. my kind of game. this isn't tennis. it's hockey!! reminds me of skating on the pond, killing each other with high shoulder shots. good times. as for the fight -- snooze. as for malik -- he should be paid hourly. if he was 6'0 instead of 6'6, he'd be selling insurance or fixing computers.
Great job by Drury to stand up for a teamate against a much longer man.
Elbo hit by Nokelainen and gentleman act from Drury. Immediate feedback of unfair hit is the best.
Where is the fight?
So many shameful posts on this fight. I'm a Ranger fan. I agree that it wasnt a dirty hit. If your team mate gets hit like this and you do nothing, your a piece of S**T and you dont deserve to play hockey. In a scoreless game with a playoff position on the line your going to sit there like a little girl and do nothing! Please somebody delete my subscription to this site. I'm tired of all the poser hockey fans here.
Good clean hit by Nokelainen...would have prefered someone other than Drury to say something to him as he spent 7 min in the sin bin...as far as the fight goes( if you want to call it that) should be a draw, maybe slight edge to Drury for throwing the only punches....
crap. nice to see drury sticking up for his teamates though, no matter how lousy the fight was.
how the hell did 16% give nokelainen the win in this fight? or are they sipping andy brickley's kool aid too?
A guy does not get a win because of the check, what a dumb comment. It's a draw. Elbow was up a bit.
That Bruin announcer is retarded. Step into my office for a second... YOU'RE FIRED!
Atta boy Drury. Way to stick up for your boys. Not much of a fight. But Drury did throw a couple. Win Drury.
Sorry the Ranger haters think that it was a clean hit, but hits to the head are illegal, unnecessary, and dangerous, no ifs and or buts. Drury does the right thing going after Nokelainen
Malik's big ass should be able to stick up for himself. Maybe Avery needs to bitchslap him around in practice some more, toughen that boy up!
good hit, pretty clean, but i guess the ref thought noky had to skate a decent length of the ice in order to make the hit for the charge. drury did the right think in sticking up for his teammate, but i know for a fact that he wears a face shield. why the ref gave him a roughing instead of an double minor instigator beats the heck out of me.
cmon chris, that was cute.nokey made a clean hit -try sticking to scoring goals
I don't understand why anyone would pay drury big bucks to play on their team. He doesn't score and he can't play physical. Plus he is a moody whiner.
Great hit shit fight , Rangers suck
Heh, put win on Nokelainen because of the hot hit. It's a clean body hit, the stupid Ranger is just watching other way and that's why he gets knocked down. Drury is just a tard who thinks it was a cheap shot. Clean hit, stupid Drury - "win" Nokelainen for the big hit :)
Yea, I am a rangers fan, but i cant honestly say that was a clean hit. Elbow right to the head. Having said that, keep your fucking head up Malik
Great hit and haha, come on drury, get the hell off this website....rangers suck
Could they have showed the reply of the hit anymore. I guess the fight was so crappy the hit was the only thing worth showing.
What was that?
Lousy fight, but Drury should have gotten 2, 5 and 10 for instigating.
What was Drury thinking? He wanted to prove how tough he is by taking on a young kid from Europe. I know I'm scared of him now.
I wonder how the Ranger management felt watching their $7 million man drop his gloves for no reason.
what are all of you blind??? He is clearly leading with his elbow- an illegal hit!!!! and anyone who says Drury is dumb for sticking up for Malik is an idiot
clearly that hit was not clean. his elbow was up. you can't elbow someone in the side of the head and call it a clean hit. and great job by drury sticking up for his teammate, clean hit or not. anyone who knows anything about hockey can recognize that.
Drury goes through Avery to get to this rat. Clearly an elbow to Maliks head. Drury shows why he worth the C.
drurys got the rangers backs ... clean hit tho
The ball-less refs would obviously not give Drury and instigator and a fighting major, so they give him a roughing instead of an instigator? Are you kidding me? I know it's not a big deal, but that is an awful call. Also, the was a clean hit, I saw the game and there was no charge.
This is how you teach your kids to hit. Elbow tucked, all shoulder. Not that I'm supporting teaching violence to minors or anything O.o
