When did this game switch to a national geographic bio on male monkeys trying to prove manhood?

Posted by Clark75 on January 04, 2009 at 03:10 PM

Too bad you couldn't give some one a -10 for how good they were. LOL that was hilarious. Looks like Brashear might wanna give him a few pointers.

Posted by dannyboy on January 05, 2009 at 11:56 AM

I had that exact move pulled on me...when I was 10. It was for taking the Nintendo controller away from my cousin mid-jump...in Koopas Kingdom. Important level...he was pissed.

Ummmm.........yea. An A for effort and a D for effectiveness.Not pretty, but dam funny.

Was that Semin running down Staal's back??!!

Posted by cuptonj on January 04, 2009 at 10:26 PM

That was great .It would be an insult to girls to say that Semin punches like a girl.

Posted by deaner01 on January 04, 2009 at 07:46 AM

Cat fight, Cat Fight!!! Semin should be obligated to retire from playing hockey...for ever. I've seen better fights in ringette games - embarassing!

Posted by mrunohoo on January 03, 2009 at 11:09 PM

That was the funniest thing I've ever seen!! I was having a terrible weekend until I saw that. Even the announcers were making fun of him. What a little girl. My fourl year old daughter could kick hiss a$$!!! HILARIOUS!!

Posted by Gutz on January 03, 2009 at 11:24 PM

Semin can throw em with both hands!!

Semin should fight crosby in a jello wrestling match. Fags.

Posted by SteelCity on January 04, 2009 at 12:02 PM

LMFAO What the hell was that nonsense by Semin!!!? HANDS DOWN FIGHT OF THE YEAR! That was classic.

Posted by sporr on January 04, 2009 at 08:20 AM

Almost as bad as Cindy Crosby earlier. I would love to be in the Cap's locker room for the teasing after this one.

Posted by staceyb on January 04, 2009 at 02:33 PM

Semin has not quite adjusted to NHL fighting norms. He's more of a sandbox kind of scrapper: "Give me back my shirt! I'm going to tell mommy on you!"

Posted by ColtonORRules on January 03, 2009 at 10:17 PM

WTF is with that slapping shit semin?!?!?!?!

Posted by BigJtheCanuck on January 03, 2009 at 10:17 PM

Semin should be ashamed!

Posted by digitalroc on January 04, 2009 at 08:54 PM

draw. points for staal for getting the jersey over the head, but score points for semin for getting 'shots' to staal's. embarrassing for both players with semin's punching style and staal turtle at the end.

Posted by Spinner55 on January 04, 2009 at 12:02 PM

Semin... a classic example of a Russian figure skater playing hockey...soap on the rope, anyone?

Posted by plb05 on January 04, 2009 at 02:29 PM

this is ridiculous, I am embarrassed to watch this video on hockeyfights.com Both Marc and Alexander need a beating by somebody who actually knows how and what fighting is about.

Posted by moranm58 on April 14, 2009 at 11:42 AM

Staal wanted her naked, so she slapped him.

Posted by CBH on January 03, 2009 at 10:13 PM

Seriously ?!?! I called this Girl on Girl action a draw…. The first G…. A…. Y… thing was Stall going after the smallest guy on the ice in Semin! Then it got worse with the B…. I …. T…. C…. H…. slapping Stall got! Hey Stall you and A-O were dancing at the other end of the ice and then you go after Semin?!?! I don’t know what to say when you turtle like that so I can only offer F… A… G…!!!

That has got to be the FFOTY! Unbelievable! Semin should play in the NBA with punches like that! 'Thees is how we fight een Rahshuh!' Hilarious! Staal has to be embarrassed that he's even IN that clip! Sportscenter, here you come!

Posted by habsdom on January 03, 2009 at 11:09 PM

wow worst fight ive ever seen look at those punches by semin a two year old could throw better shots than that lol draw.

Posted by johnnyfitzo on January 04, 2009 at 12:08 PM

HAha i dont know what to say, What are the russians teaching these guys?

Posted by Isles9Jethro on January 03, 2009 at 11:25 PM

I have never seen something so sad. Semin should be given a 10 game suspension for giving fighting a bad name. Imagine what Orr and Brash must have been thinking.

Posted by ECHO1 on January 04, 2009 at 08:45 PM

I give it a draw just because Semin tried.

Posted by Johnboy2k9 on January 04, 2009 at 08:28 AM

Perhaps a sister site should be started called "hokeybitchslaps.com", because that's where this belongs. I am also confused on how to score this.

Posted by hockeyLOL on January 04, 2009 at 09:10 PM

O-o Someone give Semin some drumsticks, he might make a good solo. I'ma say thats a draw considering Semin slapped him a few times, but it was the worst fight in hockey history. @bluesrule08, Semin was laughing at Crosby for his points, not his fighting. He said Crosby makes plays but hes not that special, considering many of his points are for second assists. Also, Crosby CANNOT fight. Have you seen him? First time, he jumps a guy and punches him in the nuts while the guy is being held down by Crosbys teammate. Second, he jumps the guy and pulls the jersey without having the courtesy to even NOTIFY him that they were gonna fight. He knew he couldn't win so he cheapshots him and jumps him first.

Posted by Blotto72 on January 11, 2012 at 12:17 AM

A classic. I think the Europians need to learn to fight before they lace them up in the NHL.

Posted by Jordan99 on December 11, 2017 at 06:57 PM

Is there anything worse than horrible to Give to Semin.

Posted by Bruins29 on January 04, 2009 at 02:13 PM

Haha. WTF was that? I like the silverback reference...except that a gorilla's punches would definitely hurt. Semin was more or less slapping Staal. Draw in an embarrassing fight.

Posted by brianaltland on January 04, 2009 at 11:06 AM

Can someone please show Semin how to throw a punch????? He is just lucky that Staal was not smart enough to keep throwing punches instead of trying to pull Semin's sweater off...

Posted by EddieShore1 on January 04, 2009 at 12:06 AM

What the hell was Semin doing ? With fighting skills like that he would get his ass kicked routinely in women's leagues as well. Another one that should never attempt engaging in fisticuffs again.

Posted by sheazo on January 04, 2009 at 10:34 AM

Did I really see what I just saw? Good thing Semin didn't have his purse with him, or he would have hit him that too.

Posted by Jordybats99 on February 16, 2016 at 07:06 PM

I refuse to give Semin the win here. Draw.

Posted by Dell on January 04, 2009 at 04:05 PM

Went SILVERBACK on him - hilarious!

Posted by brazos on January 04, 2009 at 07:06 PM

You could almost hear the dialog as they went to the ice. "You bad boy I'm going to slap you silly "!!!!!!!!!!!! Hilarious if nothing else. The question no one has asked is: DID THEY KISS AND MAKE UP LATER??????????????????????????????????????????????

Posted by justinb on January 04, 2009 at 10:16 PM

The only thing missing from this was a mud pit and some boobies on these girls. Come on, Staal pulls Semin's shirt off and Semin responds by slapping him repeatedly in the ovaries? Get these two some tampons and chalk it up to that time of the month. DRAW!

This was the funniest thing I have EVER seen in hockey!!! Unbelievable. First, why is Staal going after Semin? Second, isn't Semin an awfully appropriate name after watching that? Third, I give this one a 10! We're grading the entertainment quality of these interactions, right? This was pure entertainment, just in the comedic sense, instead of the action sense. This one will be on highlight(or lowlight) clips for years...absolutely classic.

Was that a girl fighting Stall....."I'll hit you with my purse". Give me a break

Posted by Nitetrain17 on January 05, 2009 at 02:17 PM

Semin was worst than a 15 year old girl. That was embarrassing for all hockey players in general. Pathetic slapping. But at least he didn't kick him or call him names.

Posted by Dovermv on January 03, 2009 at 10:23 PM

Staal win because Semin is a women

Posted by KO22 on January 04, 2009 at 12:07 AM

This guy should be embarassed!! WHAT A GIRL!!!! My sister throws better punches than this little whimp! I give the win to Staal for making Semen look stupid!!! JAJAJAJAJAJAJAJAJA

Posted by BooSanta on January 04, 2009 at 09:27 PM

Staal gets the win by disrobing Semin, as he gets Semin thrown out of the game. He also accomplishes exposing Semin as someone who fights like a 4 year old girl. You could rename the lady byng after this slapper. Besides that, I know girls who also drum a hell of alot better. It seemed to me Semin was mad because he didn't get his oompa loompa.

Posted by oilersfansylvan on January 04, 2009 at 12:57 AM

LMAOAROTF OMG now that is the most feminine fighting technique i've ever seen.......he almost slapped Stall silly.......Theres gotta be a Semin/Crosby fight........Like to hear what Grapes says after seeing this...LMAO To: .....GUTZ - BLACK AND GOLD - JELLYCZAR - DUGRAY ---Holy crap you guys made me laugh......THANKS

Posted by whitedevil on January 04, 2009 at 04:12 PM

reminessent of a few scenes on "Planet of the Apes" when the humans were being attacked. Semin kinda looked like an angry monkey playing the drums. ----this is comming from a diehard Caps fan

Posted by oilman420 on January 04, 2009 at 04:48 PM

Semin lol what are you doing?? please please dont ever drop the gloves again!!

Posted by neiljc on January 04, 2009 at 10:29 AM

That was God-awful. Anyone complaining about Sidney Crosby fighting should at least keep in mind that HE CAN. Weird day for the NHL with skilled players/non-fighters fighting (around 5-6).

Posted by Bigmurf8758 on January 03, 2009 at 10:31 PM

WOW!!!! that is one of the funniest things i have seen in a while, def the funniest fight i have seen. Staal would of dominated if he thrown punches, was throwing Semin around like a rag doll. I wish OV would finally drop the gloves instead of running away or waiting till the ref is pushing him away to even face wash someone, if you watch after the hit , someone tries to get in his face maybe to fight but he takes off skating down the ice. Staal chooses Semin because he ran into the goalie even if it was accidental

Posted by blues10 on January 05, 2009 at 09:46 AM

That was the worst hockey fight I have ever seen. Not only did Staal grab like a girl Semin starts flinging like a little bitch. The only thing Semin forgot was he was wearing garters.

Posted by BSTnougat on January 07, 2009 at 07:48 PM

As soon as i saw this fight I couldnt wait to see what everyone on here had to say. There is no arguing semin's skill when he has the puck...but that was one of the funnier things i've ever seen. What do you put for Semin's ranking as a fighter? I'm not sure one is low enough

Posted by burns08 on January 06, 2009 at 12:27 PM

Um, that is one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen in my life. I don't even know what to say about this. Most guys would probably use something like The Gladiator to get them pumped up for a game, but I think Semin probably watched old reruns of Will and Grace.

Posted by bruiseyoureye on January 03, 2009 at 10:01 PM

that was the funniest thing i ever saw....ha ha ha ha...my stomach hurting from laughing......i think that guy semin should lock himself in a room and never come out......id bet britney spears could whip his ass...........and ovechkin is the dirtiest player in the leaugue......i hope someone cheap shots ovechkin so hard it knocks every one of his teeth out ..........now back to semin.......semin you are panty waste........staal with the win because semin wears panties instead of a jock strap and just bcause period.......enough said

Posted by Looch on January 04, 2009 at 08:11 PM

Posted by Chivas Regal on January 04, 2009 at 11:04 PM

Holy smokes that was embarrassing. I feel bad for the Caps fans. I've never cringed while watching a fight before. And BTW likening Semin's "fighting style" to drumming is too masculine. He was slapping like a girl.

Posted by RangersFan990 on January 05, 2009 at 08:35 AM

Embarassing for Caps fans.. was in 10th row and watched several hide thier faces. What a Girl! Game Misconduct for fighting like a Wuss!

What the hell is that with you people, he maybe don't cares about fighting, and he never would want to fight, but he is a hell of player and is one of the best players in the league so just SHUT UP! fighting is just a little part of the game, and is only big in canada!

Posted by cambec on January 04, 2009 at 11:47 AM

OMFG what a pussy...wonder if Semin burst into tears after his slapping fit. If Staal had long hair...well you can only imagine the hair that would have been left on the ice.

Slight edge to Staal. Style points to B!tch-slap Semin who looked like a drunken sorority girl fighting.

Posted by mvmuck on February 11, 2009 at 10:49 PM

what a bitch colton orr must have laughed at that fight if u wanna call it a fight

Posted by TheGouch23 on January 04, 2009 at 12:59 AM

OK just to clear things up. First of all, the order of the events in the video is not the actual order they happened...the hit on Semin by Staal was a REPLAY. the game was very physical, particularly between AO and Staal all game. Staal was hitting pretty much everyone as was Ovie. The Rangers were playing physical on Semin all night. Semin came up his side and Staal knocked him with a solid hit. Ovie saw it, so when play went back in the Rangers end that's when he took the run at Staal. After the second Semin rush (that's what she said? LOL), which was after Ovie's response, that's when the fight occured. Also in response to whoever said Ovechkin should have fought the player that challenged him after his hit on Staal, the player that challenged Ovie after he hit Staal was Colton Orr...so I don't think that would have been a wise decision by Ovechkin no doubt... Staal did not throw anything (wish he would throw in his fights more often), and ordinarily I'd vote this a straight up draw, but I'm sorry...the Donkey Kong routine at the end by Semin is clearly a big fat L for Laughable and Lose...I think the judges oughta award this one to Staal just on sheer lack of merit by Semin...IMO he DQ'd himself with the bongo's there...he has also officially lost his Crosby hating-on privileges, at least in the short term. But yes I would have LOVED to hear Colton Orr's reaction...and Paul Mara is a funny dude too, so he might have had a good one as well. Wonder what Ovechkin said / thought also of his teammate's, uh, effort. But here's MY reaction, and I can't pass up the opportunity to do this...and this is coming from someone who went out with a Russian girl for a year so don't read any racism where there isn't any...just humor: "In Soviet Russia, bongos play YOU!"

I've been a Caps fan for 25 years. This has to be the most bizarre thing I have ever seen. To add insult to injury my two young boys pointed out the fact that Semin's under shirt was half pink. I love Semin, arguably the most skilled player in the NHL, but he fights like a drunk bytch who got felt up at the drive in...

That is hilarious. He slapped him silly.

Posted by Hell of a TILT on January 05, 2009 at 03:15 PM

I have to give the win to Semin for his "Whack a Mole" impersonation.....He was the only one trying to throw what resembled a punch......Staal was content with ripping his jersey off and turtling.....what a SALLY!!

So let me get this straight.... Staal turtles to a girly man throwing a tantrum and he's somehow the winner? Staal should be more embarassed than Semin.... at least Semin slapped someone. Plus, the fact that Stall even went after the delicate little flower says more about him than it does about Semin and his wind-making flailings. On to the Crosby fight... I now hate him 100% of the time, not just usually. He jumps a guy on a faceoff and is magically answering the bell? That was the biggest b1tch move I've seen in a long time and he needs to get pounded later for it... if he'll dare fight someone who knows it's coming. He's a turd...

Posted by SA_Town on January 07, 2009 at 03:12 PM

Semin is not a fighter and should never fight again. I bet he would crush Scott Hartnell though because Hartnell has no balance.

You guys are nuts. Semin may look ridiculous but he's the one on top when the fight ends. Win for Semin. And bluesfan08 if you think the fact that Crosby jumped another player without warning suggests he's a good fighter, you're even crazier.

shittiest fight of the year, but whe scoring a fight you gotta go by who gets more hits, semin wins the bitch fight. plus he got his face sammed into the post and got up and fought. give props to him until he slaps a dude

Posted by uFightLikeSemin on January 04, 2009 at 03:01 PM

Isn't it more embarassing that Staal got his jock handed to him by a guy who learned to fight from his sister?

true he was girlish, but if he actually puched he woulda beat marc staal...considering staal picked the fight, he didn't do well for himself against a guy who punches like that...decision semin simply cuz staal didnt clean his clock

Posted by Slayers on January 04, 2009 at 07:59 PM

How anybody can think Staal won this is beyond understanding. Yes, Semin played the bongos on Staal, but Staal curled up like a baby. As much as Semin displayed a feminine display, Stall was by far the biggest wuss.

Posted by tvwillia1 on January 04, 2009 at 10:49 AM

Staal was indeed slapped silly. A fitting end to a silly start that involved no effort by Stall to fight like a man. Staal was simply taking his frustration out on Semin, a skill guy who showed some guts.

Posted by mcb789 on January 04, 2009 at 01:06 AM

two guys that dont know how to fight. atleast they tried.

Posted by gotsparkly on January 04, 2009 at 07:56 AM

Semin is not a fighter, but I think he snapped on this one when Staal went after him after a shot that took him too close to Valiquette. Before Christmas, Semin had come back from missing 12 games to a back injury and had been in for just one or two when David Backes cross-checked him in the back, sending him to the dressing room and wasn't called for it. He missed another six games and was very, very unhappy about it. Last night was his first game back, and Staal goes after him. I think he just said "enough is enough, I am tired of you people" and went hammer and tongs after the guy. He needs to tie down his jersey next time, and someone needs to teach him to fight, but I'm glad to see him be willing to stand up for himself. This was hilariously funny, though.

Posted by RoboSmash on January 04, 2009 at 01:03 AM

Semin looked exactly like Animal from the Muppet Show banging on the drums. I really hope he got the game misconduct for shaming the league/sport with that display.

Overall - wow! I don't think I've ever seen a "fight" quite like that before. The whole place was either laughing or crying - couldn't tell. But Staal is a little punk for going after Semin I mean it was the guy with 8 not 28 that messed him up at the other end. The slapping. I sure Brash will give me a lesson or two after this slap beat-down. Plus Staal should be embarrassed for being on the receiving end of that.

Posted by C. Alter on January 04, 2009 at 02:30 PM

Greatest fight I've ever seen, at least from the comedy perspective! I scored for Semin only because Staal had such an advantage & still played turtle. In the Capitals system, they are paid to play hockey and to score, not fight. If you want to see fights, watch the Flyers instead. Semin has been injuried a great deal, and just came back. Staal knew that, yet he decided to go after Semin. How embarrassing for both of them, but especially Staal.

Posted by irockthered on January 03, 2009 at 11:38 PM

Staal stripped Semin, and Semin went and beat on him, LOL! That's a great fight. Very amusing.

Posted by Alex28 on January 04, 2009 at 12:29 AM

I like how everyone seems to miss the fact that Semin pushed Staal over before letting loose the bitchslaps of wrath. Or just how bad Staal looks for turtling away. Imagine how much fodder for humiliation Eric and Jordan now have for the next family reunion. I predict Marc Staal never overcoming the humilation of this fight, succumbing to alcoholism by the time he's 25, committing suicide by the time he's 30, the occurrence of which would cause Eric and Jordan Staal to go into career ending depressions. Just like that, Alex Semin has destroyed 3 key players for the 3 biggest rivals of the Caps. No, make no mistake, Semin wins this quite handily. Not to mention he is now a legend.

Posted by M4R1U5 on January 04, 2009 at 08:33 AM

Are there any more overrated group of brothers in the nhl than the Staals? The guy in Pittsburgh just got a HUGE new contract for what--12 goals a year? This wasn't a fight, it was comedy hour. No winner, not possible.

I think we haave seen a first in the NHL. While engaged in a "fight," a National Hockey League Player auditioned for a part in a Broadway Show.

Posted by gershy101 on January 06, 2009 at 08:52 AM

Wow that was funny! I am a huge caps fan but am embarrased by this! I mean he's obviously not a fighter but you'd think with Brash on the same team he might get a few pointers along the way. It's great to see Semin back on the ice from injury but geez man not like this! Please Alex stick to what you know... Scoring goals and looking pretty! And for the love of god don't get hurt again!! He is so fragile!

Posted by Hoju on January 04, 2009 at 09:59 PM

this is why there's no fighting in international tournaments, euros (russians especially) are terrible fighters. it looks like staal stepped on semin's jersey and slipped before semin unleashed a preteen girl like flurry

Posted by silvertipsfan on January 03, 2009 at 11:01 PM

This is all ovechkins fault, great player but he needs to get pounded; he runs around pot-shotting everyone and then skates away, I want to see him fight. i hope crosby pounds semin that would be fun to watch!!!!

I checked the box score of this game and came here immediately when I say Staal and Semin fought. I think Brashear might kick Semin's ass for pulling that crap, I am willing to wager good money that Semin had tears in his eyes and told the refs "BUT HE STARTED IT!!!"

As terrible as Semin performed in this "fight" he definitly won. Semin should be embarrassed, Staal should be ashamed. Nice re-make of the Ralphie fight from Christmas Story.

Staal had Semen all over him!!!

I'm speechless. How do you score this?

I don't know how Staal is winning this fight on here. I dont' think he threw a punch!

From where I'm sitting, Staal was on the ice in the fetal position while Semin "punched" him. Winner, Semin. Doesn't matter how weak the punches looked. Staal was curled up like a baby. Brashear needs to take Semin aside for some lessons, however.

Semin's Kung Fu is too strong for Staal. Domination by the Karate Kid!

semin clearly won the fight. his winning method is very unusual to say the least and not recommended for any serious fighters.
