hah! can't take a hit or win a fight!

Posted by njteech on December 13, 2008 at 08:15 AM

WOW Girardi picked on a real tough guy

Posted by Riomouse911 on December 13, 2008 at 04:21 PM

Ouch, ooof, pow, thud. DG wins.

Posted by bobsledjamaica on December 12, 2008 at 10:49 PM

Girardi put him right on his back, mad props Girardi, it was one of the only Ranger wins tonight.

Posted by TheAsianator on December 12, 2008 at 10:45 PM

Zajac is a joke

Posted by wuzzaman on December 14, 2008 at 12:26 AM

Some kudos to Zajac for standing up for himself, even though it was a great, fair hit by Girardi. As for anyone who votes for Zajac I have to ask what fight are you watching?

Posted by Ortmeyer on December 13, 2008 at 10:24 AM

Yeah, I'd vote for Zajac, too!!!! Stupid Devil fans.

When will these candy-asses learn that a good clean hit does not costitute a need for a fight. I guess justice prevailed here, as not only did Girardi rock him with a good solid check, he then punched his lights out to boot. Girardi the clear winner here. Hey Mrs. Zajac, quit being a homer and vote for the real winner. Did Zajac get a punch unleashed? NO!

Posted by Gunslinger on December 13, 2008 at 09:43 AM

Zajac must have been stunned to want to fight Giradi. If he was'nt before the fight, he sure was after the first punch. That will teach him to get sucky after a clean hit. Zajac, if you keep your head up, hits like that do'nt happen. Blame yourself kid.

Posted by Dampland on December 14, 2008 at 01:36 PM

Hey Zajac ..... don't try to fight again EVER.

Posted by bruins rule on December 12, 2008 at 11:36 PM

girardi with the easy win in this fight.

Posted by capsfloors on December 13, 2008 at 10:32 AM

Tko Girardi here....Zajac has his head down and gets crushed on a clean hit..then decides to take matters in his own hands...Girardi is not a fighter either but shows Zajac how its done...What idiot Devil's fans voted for Zajac?

Posted by Bigford83 on December 13, 2008 at 01:00 AM

Not much of a fight, I guess Girardi won. On a side note, I will give Zajac credit: how often do you see a skill player nowadays stand up for HIMSELF after getting rocked? It's not often, that's for sure.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on December 13, 2008 at 09:50 AM

Nice hit, nice beatdown. Girardi all the way.

Posted by staceyb on December 13, 2008 at 06:45 AM

You wouldn't see Girardi pull that with Clarkson or Rupp--they'd hand him his head with his helmet still on. Zajac--not exactly a bruiser.

Posted by Heavyweight2 on December 12, 2008 at 10:54 PM

Go Girardi

Posted by JustinL611 on November 16, 2010 at 10:10 AM

Girardi with the win

Posted by smasham on December 13, 2008 at 12:01 PM

Girardi is pretty brave, Zajac is a tough first fight..........

Posted by 1940rip on January 29, 2009 at 09:21 PM

Not much of a fight. Girardi owns him twice, first on the hit, then in the fight.

Posted by plabute on December 14, 2008 at 02:10 AM

Thats gonna be a candidate for knockout of the year

Posted by BooSanta on December 14, 2008 at 08:20 PM

If you wanted the fight to start from the initial hit on Zajac....well what am I saying Zajac is lucky the panty shield was on Girardi connects handily before the refs use the mercy rule and save Zajac's life. Lots of "Policing" in this contest. wish I had been there.

Posted by sporr on December 14, 2008 at 09:33 PM

Pretty funny. Little runt forward gets popped with his head down by big defenseman. Little runt goes after big defenseman. Little runt forward gets popped with his head up. OOOPs! Guess he didn't learn much in college.

Posted by NYRangers30 on December 12, 2008 at 11:34 PM

Girardi gets 2 points one for knocking out Zajac and another for the hit

Posted by GetUrWigSplit13 on December 13, 2008 at 12:05 AM

thats how we do it in new york b*tch!!!...we lay u out once, u get up, we lay u out again!..its simple!!!

Posted by Wild24 on December 12, 2008 at 10:50 PM

Girardi domination

Posted by hockeyfan87 on December 13, 2008 at 12:42 PM

Wow who knew Girardi could throw his fists like that. Domination for Girardi.

Posted by dropkick25 on December 14, 2008 at 10:07 PM

Seems like a lot of players these days think it's a No Check league .Skate with there heads down then throw hissy fits when they get planted. Girardi plays clean and never fights,what is he supposed to do?KO.

Posted by deik16 on December 12, 2008 at 10:46 PM

One punch knock out for daniel

Posted by dmk139 on December 14, 2008 at 07:46 AM

that was entertaining

Posted by PKisel34 on December 12, 2008 at 10:01 PM

easy win Girardi, one punch and dropped him, wild game. Not bad for your first NHL fight.

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on December 12, 2008 at 10:38 PM

KO to Girardi

Posted by jcstokes on December 13, 2008 at 07:39 AM

Two questions? which jersey fans voted for zajac? is zajac a skilled player? this fight epitomized the two hit quote: zajac getting hit, then hitting the floor. Rocked. wild game. renney may be on his way out.

Posted by hockeybo on December 14, 2008 at 09:19 AM

Zajac should have skated away after being checked to the ice.

Posted by b.t.wilson on December 12, 2008 at 10:42 PM

Oh pop! Zajac definitely wasn't ready for that right! Dropped him.

Posted by JFROW on December 17, 2008 at 02:27 PM

GIrardi is the man

Posted by rangers16 on August 24, 2009 at 07:50 PM

does this one need any explanation complete domination. Girardi is a tough customer maybe if he wasn't such a valuable 2 way defenseman he'd fight more often

Posted by mvmuck on February 11, 2009 at 10:44 PM


Posted by ItalianHunk21 on December 14, 2008 at 12:39 AM

Damn! Girardi with the KO!

Posted by dubieaddict17 on December 13, 2008 at 05:58 PM

Girardi pounded Zajac. It's funny because during the game my sister was telling me how her favorite player was Daniel Girardi because he never fought. I wonder who her favorite is now. Win Girardi

Posted by 5 4 Fighting on December 13, 2008 at 01:21 AM

fuck tha rangers girardi is a pussy

Posted by prorobo on December 12, 2008 at 11:30 PM

Girardi gets it. Zajac is not a fighter, but instead scored twice on the night where it matters.

Posted by jakedegiacomo on February 05, 2009 at 10:10 PM

Girardi is a fag

Posted by jealeman on December 13, 2008 at 12:57 AM meaningful punch. Girardi with the win. Why can't anyone take a freaking hit these days?

Posted by siouxfan1 on December 16, 2008 at 02:01 AM

I bet Zajac got tired of hitting Girardi in the fist with his face? Zajac should leave the fighting to the pros.

Posted by rcassett on December 14, 2008 at 12:21 AM

Zajac standing up for himself ? That was a hardnose, clean hit by Girardi. So not only is Zajac a fairy for taking exception to getting clocked with an open ice hit while his head was down, he made it worse by getting knocked down with one punch. Very Crosby like by Zajac - without all the skill.

Posted by Wods317 on December 13, 2008 at 11:58 PM

Girardi lays him out and then KOs him

Posted by RavensDad on December 15, 2008 at 12:52 PM

ok the fact that 2.3 people on this site would even vote for Zajac just proves how many homer idiots are on here. at best that fight was girardi 5 for fighting Zajac 5 for receiving

Posted by Barrel03 on December 13, 2008 at 10:21 AM

nice hit .. nice try by zajac to defend himself but clear domination by girardi

Posted by iceman10 on December 15, 2008 at 11:29 AM

credit to Zajac for getting up from the hit right away, not the smartest decision to try to stand up for himself though. Girardi easily, more of a NY mugging than a fight though

Posted by dlbishop2213 on December 12, 2008 at 10:56 PM

Girardi levels him before it even starts lol, clear girardi win...

Posted by CAheavyweight on December 14, 2008 at 08:18 PM

that doesnt make sense any player in his right mind should stand up for himself and fight the guy even if the hit was clean, thats the beauty of hockey. zajac is not a fairy at all he is a man all he needs to do is get rid of the sheild.

Posted by dirk lance on March 16, 2009 at 12:17 AM

zajac has no buisiness standing up to anyone, especially since that was a watered-down version of the hits scott stevens used to throw to end careers

Posted by marinermoose38 on December 14, 2008 at 11:30 PM

Looks to me like Girardi TKO'ed him.

Posted by tim daddy on December 13, 2008 at 11:08 AM

a short one,girardi wins

Posted by gmr133 on December 14, 2008 at 07:42 PM

I like the "Zajac might've still been stunned from the hit" comment--that's pure comedy. Zajac was stunned from getting punched in the face. TKO Girardi, after a nice hit.

Posted by trueblue3044 on December 23, 2008 at 09:29 PM

Wow, did u hear the devils announcer making excuses? "Zajac was still stunned from the hit" stupid homer. Girardi clearly wins

Posted by wannago_letsgo on December 13, 2008 at 08:35 AM

I'm glad Zajac had his ass hnded to him after taking a really nice clean hit for skating with his head down like that then standing up and challenging Girardi. And how bloody awful are the commentators? I can't get over how bad msg and fsn are, where do they find those guys? follow the play, learn or just go back to baseball

Posted by mbell130 on December 13, 2008 at 05:58 AM

haha. young girardi throws him a quick right when zajac wanted to dance for a second after getting rocked by that hit. clear win girardi haha

Posted by Pops Ryan on December 13, 2008 at 05:59 PM

Zajac needs to learn how to block punches with something other than his face.

Posted by trudo_13 on December 13, 2008 at 02:47 PM

This is KO by Girardi Zajac is really not a fighter men.

Posted by chad420 on December 12, 2008 at 11:41 PM

giradi beat him like he stole something..that was funny

Posted by imissbarnaby36 on December 12, 2008 at 10:11 PM

girardi fucked him up!!!! first he fucken layed his bitchass out and then rocked him so bad

Posted by evol_lurk on December 13, 2008 at 05:39 AM

Wow! What a hit, and what a first punch!

Posted by travist on January 26, 2013 at 10:37 PM

ha! get hit, then get popped.

Posted by FlyerPhanatic on December 13, 2008 at 10:46 PM

How embarrissing for Zajac first you get rocked with a great check then you get up and for some reason go after him only to get knocked on your ass agin this time by three quick strikes to the face. Girardi with the dominate perfomance.

Posted by redwhiteblue on December 13, 2008 at 11:32 AM

That's what a whoopin looks like NJteech.
