Dmac lost his balance and Darcy coundnt finish him off. . .hopefully Dmac will be back for the rematch!

Posted by DetroitIan on November 25, 2008 at 06:46 PM

Gotta give this one to Hordichuk. But Mac did land a good one. Just not enough to overcome the loss.

Posted by the Jester32 on November 25, 2008 at 06:28 PM

Hordichuk rushed in there quick didn't he? I almost wonder how different the outcome would have been if they squared up. anyway, couldn't tell if anything landed by either fighter, McCarty has always been good at ducking the punch.....draw.

Posted by DARCY T on November 30, 2008 at 05:02 PM

wow,what a fight.draw

Posted by stich on November 25, 2008 at 02:41 AM

These are 2 bigtime brawlers that are the exact same size and weight only Hordichuk is a righty and McCarty a southpaw 8 years older. Hordichuk threw more punches but McCarty landed a wicked left cross at the end so I would say it was a draw, these guys are mean!

Posted by Redwinger03 on February 04, 2009 at 08:28 PM

McCarty looked like he was going to lose the bout but then he made a comeback with a few good hits. So I'm going to say..McCarty gets this one.

Posted by miketheADSfan on November 27, 2008 at 07:53 PM

ok i'm a lil new and a lil late but whatever.... to detroitlan where was the "one good one" that mac landed. just curious.... not a big fan of hordi but bout f'n time he did something.

Posted by JasonPayne on November 25, 2008 at 07:16 AM

Not a single clean punch landed either way.

Posted by decostamail on November 26, 2008 at 08:26 AM

Darcy was letting it fly! Not sure 90% of those landed but it makes for good tv. Darren is still living the dream. Good for him. Beats getting a real job

Posted by Gunslinger on November 25, 2008 at 05:19 AM

Hordi whales on McCarty(or should I say Orca's McCarty). I wonder if McCarty had'nt gone bankrupt a couple years ago would he still be trying to play. His best days are long gone.

Posted by vortases002 on November 25, 2008 at 01:11 PM

Hordichuk all the way. I agree with Slshbleed, DM looks tired. Love his heart, but he keeps fighting like this it will turn out very bad.

Posted by IrishBrawler on November 25, 2008 at 02:26 AM

McCarty's too old to be fighting in the NHL now.

Posted by Franchise on November 25, 2008 at 10:58 PM

"Hordichuk wins ...big deal." "OK fight but how stupid are the announcers ? Its ok for Hordi not to fight Goddard with his team winning but with the Nucks losing McCarty is supposed to oblige him ? Noting worse then idiot homers on the mic. " Thanks for already saying it for me.

Posted by staceyb on November 25, 2008 at 05:48 AM

Hordy really smoked Carts. McCarty got heart, though--and a sore jaw.

Posted by justafightfan on November 25, 2008 at 11:47 PM

I think Mac went and bet on himself in this one.opps wrong bet again Mac,Mac is done,wings should just let him go before he gets carried off for the last time.Hordy winner.

Posted by osakaronin on November 25, 2008 at 09:52 PM

Pretty close to domination here for Hordi.

Posted by flyerfighter73 on November 25, 2008 at 07:18 PM

They should appreciate McCarty in Detroit. The only guy willing to drop em.Win or lose he is a winner up there and they should respect what he does because the rest of that team is full of &%$#@*?" wimps.

Posted by scottythecynic on November 25, 2008 at 10:22 AM

McCarty got his ass tore off the bone. Even tough guys get their ass beat.

Posted by joaquin on November 25, 2008 at 08:59 AM

McCarty is out of shape and going on fumes. It's sad that he allowed his gambling, drug, and alcohol problems to screw up his life. But he really needs to either start coaching or find a front office job soon because he's going to end up getting hurt.

Posted by Jellyczar on November 25, 2008 at 08:02 AM

Hordichuk wins ...big deal.

Posted by mrfistykuffs on November 25, 2008 at 08:21 PM

First right hand by Hordichuk put McCarty on the defensive for the rest of the scrap. Hordichuk hammered him!!

Posted by tattooedkingpin on November 25, 2008 at 10:52 AM

Every game, i stit there and wonder why Mac is still in the lineup and Downey is in the minors. I think its time for a change.

Posted by BROWN - KOCUR on November 25, 2008 at 12:09 PM

OK fight but how stupid are the announcers ? Its ok for Hordi not to fight Goddard with his team winning but with the Nucks losing McCarty is supposed to oblige him ? Noting worse then idiot homers on the mic.

Posted by rugby on November 25, 2008 at 09:44 AM

I was expecting a lot more from Hordichuk when the Canucks signed him, he has been a bit weak so far. Good interview though, he said McCarty is a class act and he asked him if they could go, DMc said I owe you from not bothering me last year in the playoffs. Most these fighters seem to be good gounded guys filling a tough role.

Posted by Reggie999 on November 25, 2008 at 01:41 AM

Two good guys stepping up,...Nice interview from Hordi during the 1st period intermission as well...Class guys throwing some bombs, win to Hordi

Posted by patou147441 on November 27, 2008 at 08:52 PM

A win by Hordichuk, but it won't change the fact that almost anybody in any club can beat the fuck up of Hordichuk

Posted by slshbleed on November 25, 2008 at 11:01 AM

McCarty looks worn out. What does he need a front office job for? He has a rock and roll band to fall back on.

Posted by Bildo on November 25, 2008 at 09:26 PM

win for hordy, nice open fight for mac in his old age though... Even though they lose most of their fights, its nice to see the wings getting some Fighting majors...

Posted by duder on November 25, 2008 at 11:01 PM

Mccarty is a warrior but hordichuck domination

Posted by mikebflorida on November 25, 2008 at 10:26 AM

They were throwing like they hate each other! Win for Hordichuk.

Posted by Juha82 on November 25, 2008 at 05:26 AM

Hordi pummeled, hammered away at McCarty. CLEAR WIN goes to Hordichuk.

Posted by brymaster1 on November 25, 2008 at 01:25 AM

Mccarty got messed up, oh how i hate that dirtball .

Posted by Maxwerm on November 25, 2008 at 12:17 PM

I don't like to see on older dude like that get thumped (it wasn't a total a** whooping), but McCarty didn't have to throw hands. He chose to. Win Hordichuk.

Posted by alsport on November 28, 2008 at 05:46 PM

Hordichuk dominated this one. McCarty tried to fight back but he just didn't have it in this one.

Posted by nighthawk walt on November 25, 2008 at 07:01 PM

hordichuk with a clear victory,surprised mccarty actually was able to get up and make a go of it.

Posted by BAAAAANNERMAAAN on November 25, 2008 at 10:27 AM

hahaha Hordichuk beats up an old man and people start talking like he beat some big heavy......homers

Posted by bruins rule on November 25, 2008 at 08:23 AM

hordichuk with the win in this fight.

Posted by hackett42 on November 30, 2008 at 04:34 PM

good stuff, mccarty's a punk.

Posted by Crazy_Canuck on December 15, 2008 at 03:11 PM

wooo mccarty didn't know waht hit him.

Posted by sirensong on November 25, 2008 at 04:34 AM

Nice to see Hordi still has some beat downs and bombs in his. As a Nucks fan who have HUUUUGELY excited to see him sign here, his fights have been a bit disapointing this season, but he seems to be getting back on track and on his way to possibly being a top 10 Heavy this year.

Posted by Santokh_Gill on November 25, 2008 at 04:53 AM

close but edge to D.H..

Posted by cmshort11 on November 25, 2008 at 11:54 PM

Hordichuk with the win.

Posted by kalismkkr on November 25, 2008 at 08:54 PM

McCarty got a good lick in but was overpowered by Darcy. I have never been impressed with Darcy in the past, but he showed a lot of class before and after the fight. Wings need someone to defend their talent. McCarty is game but not going to scare anyone away. He's there to fire up the crowd. Not sure that he adds the value the Red Wings need anymore to win.

Posted by Rillettes on November 25, 2008 at 10:28 AM

McCarty takes a few stiff ones, only this time in the guise of fists and not drinks.

Posted by blackgoldfan on November 25, 2008 at 08:04 PM

this was great too watch. the old warrior mccarty still has some gas in the tank but hordichuk is just too much for him this time.

Posted by SCSBB5 on November 25, 2008 at 10:52 AM

Nice work Darcy, turned the tide of the game back in the favour of the Canucks. Great fight!

Posted by bukieboy on November 25, 2008 at 07:13 AM

Win Hordichuk. He put his full weight behind every punch while McCarty got in a few decent arm punches. Nice to see a Rock 'em Sock 'em slugfest for a change.

Posted by ShuterMcGav on November 28, 2008 at 10:22 AM

Way to go Hordichuk! Hopefully one of those punches caused McCarty some serious brain damage. ROT IN HELL McCARTY

Posted by BLUESFAN18 on November 25, 2008 at 08:14 PM

Mac got worked..Grate job Darcy......

Posted by blues10 on November 25, 2008 at 07:52 AM

Hordichuk clear winner in this one.almost knocked out mcCarty.

Posted by claire alexande on November 26, 2008 at 02:52 PM

slight edge to hordichuk, but i really have no respect for someone who tries to prove his toughness with someone so much older and past his prime. then again, he's a canuck, so what do you expect?

Posted by philabronc on November 25, 2008 at 10:01 PM

I love seeing McCarty get beat up.

Posted by chad420 on July 20, 2009 at 10:36 PM

win hordi... good job steppin up mac....

Posted by ling2212 on November 25, 2008 at 10:59 AM

TKO for Hordichuk. He pounded on McCarty.

Posted by RebelliousArmy on November 25, 2008 at 10:10 PM

Darcy was giving darren the business but Darren got some good shot in the end but win Darcy

Posted by barnibizer on November 26, 2008 at 05:18 AM

This was all Hordi...but boy can Mac take some punches. A nice fight from possibly the 2 hardest heads in the league.

Posted by jmille8 on December 12, 2008 at 10:26 AM

mc got his but kicked
