Reitz got pounded and the rangers lost on Graves night....Islanders rule.

Posted by nycbob on February 04, 2009 at 10:35 AM

once again clean hit - fight starts. once again, a guy with a visor instigating a fight. should have got 2 extra. what the hell is reitz supposed to hit. whats the bet that 'mcb789' is about 5'3' and lives in his moms basement. hope you dont get laid off from Blockbuster, then we'll have to listen to more of your BS

Not a very good first impression by Reitz on the Rangers fans. And by the way mcb789, do your research he's not the only one ever to score 50 goals for the Rangers. Ding.

Geez. The guy jumps Reitz after Reitz makes a great clean hit. The guy jumps him, wearing his visor. There was no squaring off. This Nathan guy is another of this new breed of psuedo-tough guy that jumps is, takes advantage of a guy, then cowers or goes down when the tables are about to turn. "Visor fighters" is what they shall be referred to from here on out. Oystrick gets my decision, but lets have Colton Orr decide how tough "visor fighter" really is.

AND MCB789 SUCKS!!!!!!

Oystrick instigates with the shield but where are the extra penalties? Dumbfounded again.

win to oysrick in this one

Posted by Sourdoughkeeper on February 04, 2009 at 02:00 PM

Sure hope mcb aint a Thrashers fan, cause theres a lot of damn good Thrashers fans and Southern fans (which may seem odd to some of the Canadians and Northeasterners and Upper Midwesterners of the site) and mcb paints a false picture of a lot of the good hockey fans down here in the Southeastern US. Pretty good fight, gotta give it to Oystrick, although I wouldve thought Reitz wouldve had a better showing. And good hit, but I personally thought it a wee-tad dirty as he rode him into the boards a little. Not much, and not a missed call, but Id say this fight was at least as justified Brash going after and dominating Bogosian (and Dave Steckel wasnt hurt from Bogey's hit either). And the Thrashers are struggling mightily (as per usual) but they play a good game more often when they dont let the other team walk all over em than when they roll over get muscled. All in all, Id say Oystie did the right thing there.

Good fight by Oystrick. Dominated that fight.

Posted by foiler on February 04, 2009 at 04:55 AM

Oystrick cruises.

Posted by staceyb on February 04, 2009 at 07:08 PM

Reitz is a better fighter than what he showed in his Broadway Blues debut.

Posted by shammy on February 04, 2009 at 11:27 AM

Whaaaa!!!! Booh-hoo - Oystrick had a visor on. It makes no difference if he did or not because Reitz didn't land anything anyway. Easy win Oystrick.

Posted by bruins rule on February 04, 2009 at 07:40 AM

oystrick with the win in this fight.

Posted by mcb789 on February 03, 2009 at 11:29 PM

oystrick with the clear cut win in this fight. if reitz is going to be a tough guy he should take off that chicken shield visor. ITS WAS GREAT THAT THE RANGERS LOST THE GAME ON ADAM THE PUNK GRAVES NIGHT!! ITS SAD IN ALL THOSE YEARS THE RANGERS HAVE BEEN AROUND HE IS THE ONLY RANGER TO SCORE ATLEAST 50 GOALS IN A SEASON. RANGERS SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!! BRUINS SUCK!!!!!!!!

Posted by MajorGroove on February 04, 2009 at 11:27 PM

Who would have thought that with Godard, Boll, and Carcillo all fighting on the same night that some dude named Oystrick would have the best showing of the night? Yeah I know Erik Reitz is no Alex Henry but still, Oystrick kinged Reitz here. I will rule you!

Posted by Tweeks on February 04, 2009 at 05:31 PM

I like how Oystrick wasted no time getting Reitz' half shield out of the way.

Posted by Behn Wilson on February 05, 2009 at 10:35 PM

Cheap hit properly responded to by this Oyster-guy, and despite the visor, he proceeds to eat Reitz for breakfast.

Posted by clmetsfan on February 04, 2009 at 11:54 AM

tpr1960: "I love it , another New York face shield gets his ass kicked . All 18 Rangers should show up next game with visors on . It's Orr or nothing , and Orr loses most of em ." Wow, you really must be pretty stupid. 1) Yes, Reitz was wearing a shield, but so was the guy who instigated the fight. 2) 12 different Rangers have dropped the gloves this year. 3) Orr is 6-3-1 this year and widely considered one of the top 5 fighters in the league. Seriously, try to get something right next time.

nice fight by oystrick

Posted by GSP09 on February 04, 2009 at 07:56 PM

Oystrick with the win .

Posted by datafortress on February 04, 2009 at 07:41 AM

Reitz got dominated! It amazes me how pathetic some people are. You're on a computer and you can't even Google NY Rangers 50 goal scorers. Without even looking any novice fan knows Jaromir Jagr did it and the other besides Graves was Vic Hadfield. mcb789 is a lazy a**hole!

Posted by DARCY T on May 17, 2009 at 05:55 AM

surprisingly narrow win for reitz

Posted by Mckrosky on February 05, 2009 at 12:15 PM

Jumped him?? I didn't see that at all. The Oyster shoved him and there was no mystery as to what was going on. They both dropped 'em at the same time so... the homers need to eat it. If Reitz isn't ready to fight he shouldn't be playing like a ram-rod. That'll just get you into trouble. It's the NHL, bub... you abuse someone, you get called out. Simple. Oyster destroyed him

Posted by tpr1960 on February 04, 2009 at 09:15 AM

I love it , another New York face shield gets his ass kicked . All 18 Rangers should show up next game with visors on . It's Orr or nothing , and Orr loses most of em .

Posted by b.t.wilson on February 04, 2009 at 09:37 AM

Great job by Oystrick, standing up for his teammate on a questionable hit and completely getting the job done. Now thats a great hockey fight every way you want to look at it.

Posted by orms23 on February 04, 2009 at 03:59 PM

oystie was a killer when he played junior in the bchl and he was pretty solid in the A...hes only wearing a visor because of a brutal eye injury...he will be the first to tell you he hates having to wear that windshield...pretty tough actually, im shocked he hasnt tilted more

Posted by gmr133 on February 04, 2009 at 12:37 PM

Can't give a W to a guy with a shield who comes in and starts a fight after a clean check. Why are the Rangers giving Ron Greschner's number to somebody?

Posted by heyohmama on February 04, 2009 at 01:13 AM

reitz got slayed

Posted by chad420 on February 07, 2009 at 04:59 PM

N.O. win

Posted by lgbar75 on February 04, 2009 at 07:10 AM

Hey mcb789 Oystrick had the visor on too.

Posted by Andyman on February 05, 2009 at 09:25 PM

Oystrick needs to do this more often.
