Cody, gotta connect pal. Mac wins on landing percentage and Cody drags him down.

Posted by Wensinkfan on April 26, 2008 at 11:22 PM

McCarty landed a few more shots, plus they looked harder! He didn't get the takedown but takes the win. Good fight.

Enthusiastic draw...a brushing left verses two missed rights...take your pick. The best part of the fight is Pierre Maguire calling Cody McCormick Gordie MacClelland off the top.

Holy crap! A fight in the playoffs?? Hell has frozen over I guess. Crappy fight. DRAW

Posted by kalismkkr on April 28, 2008 at 09:25 PM

Nice to see McCarty back at it. So-so fight at best, though. McCarty landed more and better looking shots but went down too easily. Draw.

Fair dropping of the gloves, always nice to see but I don't know how this gets a 6.1 rating besides of the fact that people need a hockey fight to vote on cause it's dry in the playoffs and people are basically blood thirsty. McCarty may have landed 'A' left at the beginning stages but that's all. McCormick looked to have missed with the rights. The 2nd goal by Frazen was a better highlight. Don't get me wrong I love scraps and I've seen McCarty in better scraps with Colorado like that 1 with Deadmarsh in the game when McCarty came back and scored the OT winner, and he beat down Claude early in that regular season contest. Most of his best were in the 93-94 season though.

There are either lots of Detroit homers voting for this, or just people voting based on Darren McCarty's name regonition. He did not win this fight. Both guys "landed" the same amount of punches and McCormick got the better of him at the end. All in all though, draw. At least someone dropped the gloves.

nice to see D-Mac throwing punches again

Posted by Juha82 on April 27, 2008 at 05:55 AM

A good fight by both but not a great one. A draw, but why? McCarty landed more shots, yes... but McCormick landed one pretty solid shot to the start of the fight. McCormick took over in the end getting top of McCarty. A great to see McCarty fightning.

Posted by penman1188 on April 27, 2008 at 08:42 PM

McCarty is destroying him at first, but mcCormick gets this fight at the end..very close

Posted by NE MPLS on April 27, 2008 at 11:20 PM

draw Now the Avs fighters show up...

Posted by bcat11 on February 08, 2009 at 09:26 PM

mccarty is a good fighter

Posted by yoach on April 29, 2008 at 09:45 AM

McCormick needs to take lessons from the vet and this was a good one for him .

Posted by sidewinder3001 on May 14, 2008 at 01:06 PM

Preety tight fight. mccarty dodged a few and landed more. The only reason why McCormick was on top of him was because Mccarty fell. One solid shot didnt sway the fight for me. McCarty takes this one.

Posted by 3-26-97 on April 28, 2008 at 04:55 PM

edge Mac... good to see him droppin' the mitts in a wings jersey again

Posted by superheckman on April 28, 2008 at 03:18 PM

McCormick got one shot right at the start, the rest completely missed. McCarty took over with a few punches and then avoided the rest of McCormicks punches. I have to give the nod to McCarty, even though he got off balance and went down on his back at the end.

Posted by UnderdogDMG on May 01, 2008 at 07:44 PM

Way to go Mac. You'r perserverence in getting on track has been an inspiration to me. Keep you'r duke's up

Posted by BooSanta on May 16, 2008 at 05:11 PM

Carts keeps the punches short, sharp and crisp. Mccormack beats the absolute crapola out of the air; looks like the only punch he landed was more by his bicep than fist in the end. He looks like he can outmuscle mccarty but Cody loses on points because he didn't really land any. You can always tell it's the playoffs when they go through this dropping the glove ritual to get the other guy an instigator. Sorry but the refs aren't going to be stupid enough to think about using an instigator here. They know who the wise guys are. In the Penguin Flyer series the 2 main agitators, Downie and Ruutu did this same thing by their player benches and wound up not fighting. Cart and Corm did it right , just drop 'em.

go wings

Posted by Wings 97-98-02 on April 26, 2008 at 09:21 PM

Not a bad scrap. Did you see McCarty duck those haymakers? I'm giving McCarty the close win.

Posted by tossem on April 29, 2008 at 08:54 PM

OK bout, but considering the crap we've been subjected to watch since the playoffs started, not bad. Edge to McCarty, great to see one of the "old school" boys back on the ice. All we've seen so far in the playoffs is hugging, kissing, and rubbing each others' arses. Thanks for throwin em boys!

Posted by 59sunburst on April 28, 2008 at 06:25 PM

From what I can tell, Cody threw 5...landed 1. DMac threw 9, landing 3. McCarty slips at the end, I dont think McCormick did anything to take him down. Very slight edge to Dmac, regardless of rockhawk's lobbying.

Posted by gdames51 on May 01, 2008 at 10:26 AM

McCormick threw plenty of punches, but McCarty slipped all of them. Darren got in a a couple of good straight rights for the decision.

Posted by glovesdroppa on April 27, 2008 at 02:18 PM

hey cory! little reminder * McCarty is a south paw!!! flurry by mccarty was the difference, but mccormick got in a few good ones too. bout time, ive been fiending for a playoff tussle

Posted by Sukoshi84 on April 27, 2008 at 11:49 PM

Slight edge D Mac, he ducked quite a few shots and landed more. i didnt look like that first shot from cody did that much damage

Posted by tomales on April 27, 2008 at 11:27 AM

Close win for McCarty. He's a stand-up guy-good to see him back!

Posted by Humper on April 27, 2008 at 12:07 PM

McCarty wins in what would be, even in the regular season, an OK fight. McCormick lands nothing but a late body punch, while McCarty's flurry of lefts get him the nod.

Posted by phisherman1995 on April 26, 2008 at 07:16 PM

The scorecard goes to McCarty

Posted by ajf0038 on April 26, 2008 at 08:46 PM

McCarty under complete control

Posted by megnlou06 on April 27, 2008 at 03:03 PM

great fight but McCarty threw the best ones. I give it to him cause he took that haymaker in the begining and stayed up while throwing mcCormick to the ice..

Posted by stevkrause on April 28, 2008 at 06:36 PM

Good spirited go, lots of wild swings by McCormick, didn't land any, but got the takedown - edge McCarty

Posted by beter06 on April 29, 2008 at 01:54 PM

EDGE-McCarty. mccormick maybe delt some more pain since mccarty's heltmet was off but mccarty landed way more punches obviously and we all know take-downs stand for crap

Posted by miniprobert on April 26, 2008 at 10:01 PM

mccarty all the way.

Posted by StevenXn on April 26, 2008 at 07:01 PM

mccarty all the way

Posted by murawski_08 on August 23, 2008 at 11:40 AM

Darren McCarty is the best fighter in the NHL

Posted by tagelopo on April 27, 2008 at 12:16 AM

mccormick got in a good early punch. mccarty was hitting the air more than his opponent. close, but you have to give it to the youngster.

Posted by dromano13 on May 04, 2008 at 09:41 AM

How anyone voted for McCarty is beyond me!

Posted by kingpintoo on April 28, 2008 at 01:40 AM

How is McCarty winning this vote? No Col fans or just alot of Detroit myopic fans. Mccormick won from start to finish with McCarty answering a little in the middle.

Posted by probie83 on April 30, 2008 at 06:59 PM

Fuck the red wings and anybody who likes em.

Posted by Thorn112 on April 29, 2008 at 08:24 AM

Okay playoff scrap between two guys who were careful enough to avoid the extra two - should be rated a draw. But RockHawk is right -need to balance out the Detroit homers (wow, are you all 11-year-olds like the kid screaming derogatory stuff about Colorado?), so win McCormick.

Posted by reati on April 30, 2008 at 12:45 PM

short lil lefts by mccarty don't give him the decision... Least Cody was in there trying to make something happen (landed a clean shot at the start), and not that i give many points for take downs, but that is more codys physical strength and mccarty trying to avoid getting lit up then him tripping and falling accidently close one but edge to McCormick to even out some of the meatheads voting the other way

Posted by Ottomatic86 on April 29, 2008 at 07:50 PM

I think McCormick had the edge. McCarty is getting old, but he can still throw a few. It was close, but I have to give it to McCormick. What a bad game by my team though. Not even this fight could save their crappy performance.

Posted by ShuterMcGav on April 26, 2008 at 07:09 PM

I give the nod to McCormick

Posted by azjim on April 27, 2008 at 06:41 AM

McCormick landed big with his first swing, but after that he swung haymakers but landed nothing. McCarty landed a couple, and they fell to the ice. Nothing great but considering what has gone on so far throughout the playoffs it's a big deal.

Posted by thepolishkid88 on April 27, 2008 at 10:39 AM

even amount of punches from each one.

Posted by rocky7482 on April 28, 2008 at 09:27 AM

I love the way this one starts.....both guys are worried about the other not dropping the gloves.

Posted by Wolf_eyes on May 18, 2008 at 01:18 AM

Not the best McCarty fight, but decent in actuality of punches thrown and landed.

Posted by OceanTiger on April 26, 2008 at 09:47 PM

Slight edge to McCarty

Posted by goody72 on August 21, 2009 at 09:30 PM

Great fight! McCormick did not land any punches he threw. McCarty gets the edge.

Posted by goleafsgo12665 on October 24, 2008 at 11:16 PM

Cody shouldn't have been there. While Cody tossed Darren's helmet, he got pummeled. Darren clearly the winner.

Posted by ROCK HAWK on April 30, 2008 at 01:43 PM

WOW !! You Wings homers are disgusting ! I love McCarty as a player..but NOOOO way did he win this fight..Draw at best , but im giving it to McCormick to even out the completely idiotic voting here a little. Can somebody that voted McCarty please tell me the second mark in the fight where McCarty lands anything worth a $hit ? megnlou06...did you really just say that ?!!?!?!?!!

Posted by NOLASensMan on May 05, 2008 at 07:33 PM

Acceptable but better fights have been had.

Posted by PittPens1787 on May 17, 2008 at 10:38 PM

Tough to judge, I would say draw but that first one McCormick landed was vicious. The rest was close, but I give this one to McCormick by the slightest of margins.

Posted by LouisManchild on April 29, 2008 at 02:26 AM

After not much but face washing for a while these playoffs it was good to see somebody drop the gloves for once. And more punching then dancing doesnt hurt either.
