Other Penalties: Orpik received a minor for roughing.
A lot was thrown but look what landed.
Orpik jumped him.
Leave it to Orpik to pick on a rookie. What a piece of shit he is. He won't fight anybody else. But he loves to play dirty.
Kid bit off more than he could chew
No helmet, no problem
Cirelli's a punk who loves to hit people then skate away, glad Orpik rag dolled him !! Typical Stamkos grabbing people who have their backs turned then barks at Orpik while he's in the box, won't challenge him on the ice !! Typical pussy
As a Pens fan, it was a dream come true when he left. He's still a pussy who carefully selects opponents. Kinda like Wilson, but not as tough, and way worst as a player. Even in his better year, I always thought he was a liability, vs Wilson who I can't stand, but I have to admit is a very legit hockey player.
Orbilk doesn't throw down very often, but opponents soon learn it was a mistake testing him.
Though Orpik really instigated it with the roundhouse left just from some chippy play, he likely did it bc Cirelli body hit Burky while he was going down to the ice and stick slashed right afterwards. Orpik took it bc he was more aggressive in throwing the knuckles before Cirelli got going. Mostly even, Cirelli hung in fine but the old man did slightly better
Orpik kicked that punks ass.
Ok guys take your blinders off lol! Orpik landed nothing just like cirelli lol!!!
Oh my gosh Orpik actually dropped his cemented on gloves,
Grizzled vet orpik beats down punk cirelli
Good fight...slight edge to Orpik. These two teams will probably see each other in the cup run. Tampa got a taste of what that will be like. Ovechkin even knocked a Bolt on his ass when he scored a goal...it is going to get a lot rougher.
not a lot landed fall at the end
Orpik putting the youngster in his place.
Not sure how orpik won this. He never even landed a punch or even come close. Cirreli landed the one and only punch. I don't even like the two. Just call it like I see it.
Youngster kept pushing his luck and got taken out back to the shed.
Love it. This is what's missing in the NHL these days, two teams that really truly hate each other.
For the morons who mentioned the age difference, I believe experience and size play a much bigger role in hockey fights. Orpik is an experienced fighter who outweighs Cirelli by at least 30 pounds and has 2-3 inches on him. Cirelli is a rookie who has had a total of 3 fights including this one. If you look closely, Orpik is the one who initiated the fight. And if you watch even closer, you'll notice a welt on Orpik's left eye (just under his brow) as he's sitting in the box, however Cirelli appears to be unscathed. I guess you can call it elderly abuse by your standards.
Cirelli was agitating and got put in his place by the 75 year old Orpik. Win Orpik.
Orpik with the win. Tampa seems to be a team full of turds, but are nevertheless the team to beat this year.
Old man opened a can of whoop ass. Respect your elders Tony!
Cirelli is trash. He got lit up by someone who’s literally almost twice his age. He should feel so embarrassed...
