Nice hit

Posted by Pickle2728 on March 10, 2008 at 09:38 PM

Looked like a fight I saw one time in Oklahoma. Awful ! ! ! DRRRAWW

Posted by Gunslinger on March 13, 2008 at 11:25 AM

Drury has been a stiff offensively this year so maybe he is going to try enforcing as a way to earn his overpriced salary.

Posted by mikebflorida on March 10, 2008 at 11:20 AM

Malik needs to keep his head up. He got creamed and it looked clean to me. Crap fight- Draw

Posted by clmetsfan on March 10, 2008 at 10:47 AM

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

Posted by b4mv01 on March 10, 2008 at 07:54 PM

For Drury not being a fighter i have to give him the edge in the fight

Posted by ibled4theusa on March 10, 2008 at 01:37 PM

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.

Stinky draw.

Posted by BROWN - KOCUR on March 10, 2008 at 12:41 PM

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.

Posted by jacketsfan11 on March 31, 2008 at 09:56 PM

Sasky, watch the playoffs sometime and you'll see why people pay for him.

Posted by DARCY T on March 16, 2008 at 08:16 AM

nice hit

Posted by avolante0371 on March 10, 2008 at 09:08 AM

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!

Posted by CujoSmith on March 10, 2008 at 02:51 AM

That was dumb of Drury to risk getting hurt in a very boring fight.

Posted by Chezbeck666 on April 28, 2009 at 09:12 PM

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.

Posted by The Peach on March 13, 2008 at 04:42 PM

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.

Posted by razor 32 on March 13, 2008 at 12:12 AM

Great job by Drury to stand up for a teamate against a much longer man.

Posted by HW77 on March 16, 2010 at 02:33 PM

Elbo hit by Nokelainen and gentleman act from Drury. Immediate feedback of unfair hit is the best.

Posted by Cadman747 on March 10, 2008 at 09:54 AM

Where is the fight?

Posted by Lucy Brown on March 10, 2008 at 05:52 PM

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.

Posted by capsfloors on March 10, 2008 at 07:20 AM

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 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....

Posted by tattooedkingpin on March 10, 2008 at 04:30 PM

crap. nice to see drury sticking up for his teamates though, no matter how lousy the fight was.

Posted by TheGouch23 on March 10, 2008 at 08:25 PM

how the hell did 16% give nokelainen the win in this fight? or are they sipping andy brickley's kool aid too?

Posted by ETR on March 10, 2008 at 10:00 PM

A guy does not get a win because of the check, what a dumb comment. It's a draw. Elbow was up a bit.

Posted by SirYohans on March 10, 2008 at 12:25 PM

That Bruin announcer is retarded. Step into my office for a second... YOU'RE FIRED!

Posted by DetroitIan on March 11, 2008 at 10:41 AM

Atta boy Drury. Way to stick up for your boys. Not much of a fight. But Drury did throw a couple. Win Drury.

Posted by 5minmajor22 on March 11, 2008 at 06:55 PM

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

Posted by mikemcmo on March 14, 2008 at 09:20 AM

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!

Posted by shane0mack on March 10, 2008 at 12:20 PM

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.

Posted by moneybags on March 10, 2008 at 04:58 AM

cmon chris, that was cute.nokey made a clean hit -try sticking to scoring goals

Posted by Sasky001 on March 10, 2008 at 07:39 PM

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.

Posted by tpr1960 on March 11, 2008 at 07:21 PM

Great hit shit fight , Rangers suck

Posted by Silverhand on March 10, 2008 at 04:26 AM

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 :)

Posted by dmk139 on March 10, 2008 at 01:24 PM

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

Posted by MakaveliTrained on March 10, 2008 at 11:21 AM

Great hit and haha, come on drury, get the hell off this website....rangers suck

Posted by eggers on March 11, 2008 at 10:34 AM

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.

Posted by growsales1 on March 10, 2008 at 04:42 PM

What was that?

Posted by cas202 on April 13, 2008 at 08:19 PM

Lousy fight, but Drury should have gotten 2, 5 and 10 for instigating.

Posted by Hocky9377 on March 29, 2008 at 05:23 PM

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.

Posted by azjim on March 10, 2008 at 07:08 AM

I wonder how the Ranger management felt watching their $7 million man drop his gloves for no reason.

Posted by blueshirts1623 on March 10, 2008 at 10:51 AM

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

Posted by dool325 on March 26, 2009 at 11:45 AM

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.

Posted by jcstokes on March 10, 2008 at 10:13 PM

Drury goes through Avery to get to this rat. Clearly an elbow to Maliks head. Drury shows why he worth the C.

Posted by imissbarnaby36 on March 11, 2008 at 04:22 PM

drurys got the rangers backs ... clean hit tho

Posted by snowboardinmatt on March 10, 2008 at 03:15 PM

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.

Posted by Masterofone on March 10, 2008 at 01:54 PM

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
