Other Penalties: Jason Ward received a misconduct; Tampa Bay a too many men on the ice bench penalty.
CAPS ANNOUNCER SUCKS NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS IN THE NEW AGE OF ANNOUNCING THE HOME TEAM IS RIGHT OR WRONGED, FACT IS THE CAPS WILL MOST LIKELY MAKE THE PLAYOFFS BECAUSE THE FIX IS IN, JUST LISTEN TO MELROSE ANY ONE INVOLVED IN HOCKEY, WHAT A SHAME IT WOULD BE IF OVECHKIN DOESNT GET INTO THE PLAYOFFS, PEOPLE CANT DENY THIS FACT, JUST LOOK AT THE GAMES BEING OFFICIATED, FUNNY HOW THE CAPS AND PENGUINS PERENNIAL BANKRUPTCIES SUDDENLY THE FATE OF HOCKEY DEPENDS ON THEM, HOCKEY SUCKS
The real question was why wasnt Brashear on the ice. I was at the game and the whole arena knew a fight was brewing. After the game Coach B said he didnt want to fight and get a possible suspension for the last game. Brad's takes on Lessard in an uneventful dance. The video that I want to see is after this fight Coach B sent Brashear out on the ice to make sure nothing further developed in the last 13 seconds. But Brashear skated over to the Tampa bench, pointed at the whole team, then made a waving action several times. He was challenging the whole team as to say who wants some.......unfortunatly no one on TB wanted to fight Brashear. Good stuff.
Bradely didnt land a single punch. Last I checked hitting air doesnt really give you the win.
Lessard's first NHL fight and he does well for himself. The video is awful. Check the sunshine feed if you can because Lessard land some punches in that view. Bradley lands hardly anything. The announcers are typical homer idiots. Punishing Lessard? With what? Bad breath? DRAW
seemed like a lot of flailing and tugging - not a lot of skill
Bradley gets the nod in this lively but sloppy bout. How many of those shots hit anything but air?
cooke is a rat...thats one of the reasons hes not in vancouver anymore, the guy runs around with his windshield and drills guys. granted, most of his hits are clean, some are questionable, but if your going to play that kind of game you need to be accountable...and cooke never is EVER. team mates get sick of fighting his battles cause his gloves are glued on. always someone else fighting for him
Win Bradley..this is what tortorella gets for continuing to bench Roy.
First off, the Cooke hit was NOT dirty. He was going after the puck, hit Lecavalier, who then bumped into his own player and fell awkwardly on the ice. Secondly, what Torts did at the end of the game was inexcusable. He was shuffling guys on and off the ice right after Jokinen's penalty (before the puck dropped). It should have been a 5/4 pp for the Caps, but somehow Torts got an extra man on the ice (even with the goalie still in net) and they had no other intention than trying scrap with some of the guys who the caps had out there. Bradley was the only guy on the ice for the Caps who had reasonable experiece fighting and he handled Lessard. For the last shift, Brashear was sent on, and NOTHING happened. Torts should face a fine/suspension for what he did. Oh yeah, Doug Janik is real tough trying to fight Tomas Fleishmann. This is what started it all....
Bradley was a good in the fight, surprise. But in fact i don't know much about J.Lessard's fightning skills. Bradley got the edge from this nice fight. I give 6 for the fun. He did have land more as he was controlling to Junior and was active mostly.
Come on Bradley, you can pick someone better than that. I dont think anyone has heard of lessard. I give u the win, but choose someone who actually is a fighter
Domination by Bradley on some guy I have never heard of.
Bradley schooled Lessard. Good fight.
Tampa tried to start a brawl. First they tried a scrum between bradley and a tampa player. Then they tried again with a slash. And then they sent 5 out when they were shorthanded
Junior got ragdolled. Props for staying on his feet though.
Bradley kicked da shit outta Leesard.
great fight..... finally we got a fight rather than another hug fest
The only punch I saw land, was a right from Lessard, so in a match air swinging, I gotta give to the 'junior'.
If any of you watched the game you would know that Matt Cooke took a cheap shot at Lecavalier and injured him. After that happend, Doug Janik and Jussi Jokinen both tried to drop the gloves against cooke and that pussy wouldnt drop the gloves. Therefore that left them to try and drop the gloves with another player and that happend to be Lessard and Bradley. I thought Lessard did pretty good for his 1st NHL fight. And this is directed toward Foy... If it wasnt a cheap shot then y did cooke get fined?
lessard landed the only hard punch, bradley rag dolled him
Not bad for Lessard's second fight in the NHL, and also for someone who is only 5'11" and weighs less than 200lb's.
In no way did Cooke take a shot at Vinny. Cooke was going after the guy with the puck, Vinny skated in front of Cooke. If anything, that was interference on Vinny for impeding Cooke's progress towards the puck carrier. Vinny initiated the contact, and Cooke was in his lane (which he has the right to) before Vinny stepped into him. The reason Vinny got hurt was because he bounced of his own player and went down.
Was Lessard wearing Gratton's sweater? The way his sleeves were flapping in the breeze looked goofy.
Good, spirited fight.
