The Break Down
A fight off the faceoff dot early in a 2-1 game. Chris Stewart having spent all of last year in the UK, he had just signed a contract with the Flyers three games previous. The two square off and glide together from their stances.
Stewart starts it off with a quick left as he goes to grab Jamie Oleksiak. The big Oleksiak then lets his right hands fly throwing about nine punches (landing to varying degrees) in succession before Stewart responds. Stewart throws a couple before they distance themselves a bit and start to rotate. Both then start punching with Stewart landing the better of the flurry. They come in close and Stewart clenches Oleksiak's head and throws off the helmet. They then separate again and Oleksiak begins an exchange of punches before a left from Oleksiak starts the "timber" of both combatants, Stewart on top. The linesmen step in.

Good scrap with Stewie landing the best punches and doing the most damage. Narrow win Stewart.
Oleksiak, for as big as he is, is one of the sorriest fighters in the league. Was glad when the Pens got rid of him. He's useless
Draw in a decent tilt. Not sure what fight these announcers were watching.
Not a lot going on. Good wrestling move at the end by Stewart. Punch count higher for Oleksiak. Didn't see enough by either combatant to warrant the "W". Draw, 6.
Stewarts nice left uppercut looks like the punch that bloodied Oleksiak's face, that coupled with his flurry of punches makes him the clear winner. I wonder,did the visor slash his face? fun fight to watch
Stewart fed him with some nice uppercuts. However, Oleksiak ate em pretty good and acquitted himself well at the beginning but Stewart with the clear decision. I hate the Flyers but pretty sweet Unis!
Stew hungry to prove naysayers wrong Son of Clode, Tom Wilson, Ross Johnston, Micheal Haley all going to think twice with Philly’s new sheriff Win STEW
Got the big guy in close and owned him. Oleksiak needs to stay back
Draw for me. Both landed good shots
The announcer commenting about Chris Stewart giving up so much size is kinda weird, he's 6'2'' 230lbs. Anyway great fight, Stewart has always been willing and always been good, nice job by Oleksiak as well. The flurry of uppercuts by Stewart gives him the narrow win.
Great tilt between two of the biggest and strongest guys in the NHL. Oleksiak early, Stewart during the middle and end. Overall win Stewart & 7.
good scrap ... slight edge to Stewart. Both got close and got good shots in. Stewart's a little better
Good fight. Good to see Stewart get reward with a place on the Flyer's roster. Stewart lands the best punch and gets a win in a close one.
Stewart’s lost his fighters edge
nice to see we have someone with fire in their heart!
good scrap , nice to see Stewart back in the league. Both guys had their shots , I call it a draw.
That was a gooder. Draw.
In today’s nhl, that was a humdinger of a fight.
Stewie bloodied Big Rig's schnoz so for that he gets the win.
Tight but slight edge to the Big O.
Pretty even fight but oleksiak got better hits, if you think whoever's on top at the end is the winner then go back to 1984
Stewart took on the bigger man, Both men swapped some good shots Stewart was on top at the take down. Oleksiak had a cut to his nose good fight. Well done Chris
Great blight! Haven't seen one this good in a while. Pretty even fight but have to give Stewart the slight edge.
Oleksiak fights like Hal Gill
Oleksiak welcomes Stewart back to the NHL by letting him punch him in the face. Stewart mauled him. Especially that body shot. Bad intentions on that one.
Meh. I really thought Oleksiak was on his way to become one of the heavyweights of the league up until 2 years ago. He hasn't been the same since Wilson knocked him out last year.
Not a bad tilt. Slight edge to Oleksiak. They both got in descent shots.
