Lucic dominated the fight all the time besides that Zadorov did not know how to give a single punch.

Posted by KOd on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

To me, it looked like Zadorov was already committed to the hit before the guy turned towards the boards, so I don't think that it was a cheap shot. But, geez, if Lucic is grabbing onto you, you need to keep your eyes on what he's going to do and not be looking at the ref.

Posted by Mo44 on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Don’t know why they called this a fight. Lucic with the win with a rating of 1.

Posted by forbullMTL on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Lucic is old, still deadly but a goon!

Posted by EK65 on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Lucic tries to take Zadorov to task for a questionable hit but, Zadorov shows why he is sponsered by Elmer's

Posted by 29th_Candidate on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Not a fight. Just Douche-ic trying to relive his glory days with a sucker-punch ambush.

Posted by Lothar113 on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Zadorov puts a guy head first into the boards then is too much of a pussy to drop the gloves.

Задоров ты ебанное сыкло !

Posted by Goflames on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

It was a bad fight. Lucic had landed a couple of sucker punches and then the referees seperated them.

Posted by tpr1960 on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

That was a fight ??? Looked like an attack, Zadorov didnt drop his gloves

Posted by GreatMurray on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Just a sucker punch.

Posted by The Bud Life on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Zadorov is a coward

Posted by prowler on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Lucic the easy win

Posted by Айгор on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Позорник грёбанный.. Ссыкло ..Никита обделался так, что потом не отстирал трусы. Милан в одну калитку завалил терпилу.

Posted by Thorn112 on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

When you throw a sucker punch, you automatically lose the fight. Z's hit was clean but I don't have problem with Lucic challenging Z. I do have problem with the sucker punch. Of course, when Lucic sucker punched people in the past, they went down fast; not now, though. Z was stunned, groped to hold on while he was groggy. He would have better off to just go down right away. Would have made it tougher for refs to make those the ridiculous calls. Boarding? Absurd, or the refs would have made the call right away - but note no hands raised any time soon after Z crushed him. But the fighting major was even worse- Z never dropped his gloves, did not throw even a gloved punch, did not even drop his stick until he'd be sucker punched and was lucky to even be standing. As for the kiddies here who want to call him a pussy, look at his fight log. NHL players in general who fight aren't pussies. Every one of them, Z, Lucic and the rest who answer the bell aren't weak or intimidated whether or not they lose. Too bad Lucic didn't do it the right way. Does that make him a pussy, now? No. just an asswipe.

The only thing gazdiccan do is slap his meat. The few times I've seen him, he was a punching bag..

Posted by bruins34 on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Not a fight, but from Lucic's angle, it probably looked like a cheap shot. Zadorov is not always clean with his hits either. Adam McQuaid cleaned him up a couple of years ago too. As for the longtime Lucic haters whining about spot picking, what was he supposed to do here? He's clearly lost a step, so if he is not providing a physical presence, he's done. Also, it's not 2010. There isn't a lot of competition, so....who exactly is he avoiding?--although he went with Anthony Peluso last year before the refs ruined another good bout.

Posted by Daniel Bythelake on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

A) Not a fight B) Nothing wrong with the hit, he turned in the last 1/2 a second C) Lucic should have just taken his number and hit him next shift, if it was a dirty hit then fine he has a job to do, tired of clean hits being auto fight, cheap shot totally different story, but in Milans defence maybe he didnt see the turn at the last second, no harm no foul.... D Part of me says though if your gonna take that much of a run, no problem, but you should be prepared to drop them...had he not turned great hit

Posted by hockeyman2019 on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

okay for one thing this was the biggest crap fight in NHL history, second thing both players are complete jackasses so lets get that out of the way, Lucic just happens to be the bigger jackass here while Zadorov deserved the boarding penalty Lucic deserved everything he got... even more he (Lucic) should have been given an additional roughing penalty

Posted by PolishX on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Lucic is an aging veteran looking to maintain his relevancy in the league and Zadorov is soft and typically russian not playing with any grit at all. The issue I have is Lucic has gone from power forward and NHL grinder to some guy who no longer hustles and looks for one of three instances to show his perceived toughness 1.)Players smaller than himself to cheap shot/fight or 2.) Players not looking or 3.) Gets tough when refs are involved. When you get traded by Edmonton you might be on the tail end of your career.

Posted by Spindle on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Cheap shot

Posted by metalback on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Not even a fight, just a gloved punch and holding

Posted by Greenevansj on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Was this a fight?

Posted by nait on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Smartest thing Zadorov did was to bear hug Lucic. Can’t wait till they meet again

Posted by OilersNation on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Good on Lucic setting the precedent. Calgary has serious issues with players getting bullied last year. Nobody will be picking on. Gaudreau or Monahan like last year

Posted by canamrugby on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Both refs should have been tossed for calling fighting majors.

Posted by ckm3028 on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Typical Lucic. Cheapshot 2-3 times then gloved punch when Zadorov's not looking. Pathetic POS.

Posted by nirvana on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Suspension for lucic??? Wtf as much as I hate he doesn’t deserve a suspension. He deserves a trip to the minors gazdic can slap him around again

Posted by ClownTown on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Really sad how far this site has fallen. What the fuck is with some of these loser comments on here? Ever since "The Nation Network" took over and exposed the site to the "New NHL" fanbase, we've had a serious degradation in the knowledge and commentary of the site's patrons. Suspension for Lucic? Fuck off forever. You don't belong here

Posted by hughcares on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Great job by Lucy. League is full of pussies now. So is this site - there are hardly any fights and when there is people on this site cry about it.

Posted by Revilosnevets29 on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Dirt from Nikita deserved to be put out

Posted by Jellyczar on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Zadorov has been a bust since the Buffalo days. Lucic wanted to fight and Zadarov wanted to dance. For some of these dudes that are making weak comments. The site is hockeyfights.com .... get off and go watch Dancing with the stars.

Posted by Hajg10 on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Not a fight nor a bad hit.. he turned last second because he was afraid to get hit. not a fan of either team.. just hockey.. Lucic has no business in this league anymore

Posted by bubbaloki on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

If you are going to run somebody like that, you better be ready to defend yourself. If you don't, you will be labeled a coward and lose respect from your team. Zadorov is a big dude and should be able to defend his actions. Lucic is doing what he is supposed to do.

Posted by Orr Fourever on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

There's a new sheriff in Cowtown. Goes by the name of Lucic, Milan Lucic. You ever hear of him?

Posted by 89Blakey on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

We can’t honestly count that as a fight

Posted by jawhockey on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Drew?? Colorado fan you have to love them. This is a good reason you have a guy like Milan Lucic on your team to take care of business. Zadorov delivers a cheap shot than saw Lucic in his face and knew he was a dead girl walking. Zadorov became a pink washcloth and punching bag.

Posted by dogginit on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Well if you want to run the smallest guy on the ice you better know who else is out there, I think Lucic just sent the message.

Posted by Matheje28z on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Lucia doing what he’s been doing ever since he got pounded by Dalton Prout. He’s such a waste.

Posted by jerry s on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

lucic with a quick jab then a hug fest

Posted by Raffy07 on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

I am a fan of Lucic. He won no doubt but was a sucker punch and should be suspended for a game or 2.

Posted by Mounty in NC on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Draw and a 1... that wasn't even a fight. It was nothing more than a one punch cheap shot by Lucic.

Posted by bigmike53 on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

I was hoping for two willing combatants. Nothing to see here as usual. Sigh.

Posted by The Glamour on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Wow, hockey has changed. Kranium and Sirstv are twits.

Posted by kranium62 on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Zadorov wins easily because Lucis is a total under-achieving, sucker-punching, POS, who has disappointed every team he has been on since leaving Boston. Lucic is a total joke, screwed more organizations bank account, due to his failed execution, then Bernie Madoff.

Posted by Sirstv on February 26, 2020 at 06:37 AM

Sucker punch punk
