2nd Period - 2:24•1996-1997 Regular SeasonWhen the camera gets there Stojanov hits Langdon in the helmet with a right. Langdon then gets a pretty good grip on Stojanov's right. Stojanov spends the next few seconds trying to get his right free. As he's doing that, Langdon releases Stojanov's right arm and throws a left that might have landed. Stojanov answers with five lefts in-close. All the lefts seem to hit Langdon's shoulder or helmet. Stojanov then tries a right that Langdon fends off. They wrestle for a while, each exchanging some punches in-close, but no damage done. They finally get some separation. Stojanov tries a right uppercut that comes up short. Stojanov then tries a straight right that connects well to the side of Langdon's head. Stojanov then tries three more rights, all of which come up short or hit Langdon's shoulder. Stojanov tries three more rights, two land to the side of Langdon's head and one comes up short. They then exchange three rights a piece. Langdon looks to get the better of the short exchange. Stojanov then gets his right tied up and Langdon tries three rights. The first right looks to land, but the next two hit Stojanov's helmet. Stojanov tries to answer with a left, but it comes up short. Langdon switches to the left and tries two punches, but Stojanov ducks them both. Stojanov answers with a right that comes up short and then a body punch. They start exchanging rights. Stojanov throws eight to Langdon's six, but few, if any, of the punches land. Each of the players are still throwing when the linesmen for some reason come in and break the fight up. Excellent long bout.
