The fight breakdown
Matt Calvert finishes the check hard and then looks to give Victor Hedman a tap (read as chop) on the back of the leg as they both skate away from the play. Hedman turns around and in what would end up being Calvert's second fight of the night (the first against Erik Cernak)
Hedman is the first to fire off some punches that go behind the much smaller Calvert's head. Calvert pivots to comes from underneath landing a couple before Hedman tries re-position his grip. Hedmans left arm ends up behind Calvert's head and then it turns into more of a wrestling match as Hedman falls and Calvert lands on top of him.
Matt Calvert Notes -
For Calvert, this was his second fight of the season. His first came in the second period of the same game versus the Tampa Bay Lightning against Erik Cernak.
It was his first career fight against Victor Hedman and his second career fight against someone from the Tampa Bay Lightning.
This was the 24th fight of Calvert's 507 games in the NHL
Victor Hedman Notes -
For Hedman this is his first fight of the season. His last fight came in the 2016-17 season on January 12th, 2017 against Marcus Foligno of the Buffalo Sabres.
It was his first career fight against Matt Calvert and his first career fight against someone on the Colorado Avalanche.
This was the 6th fight of Hedman's 794 games in the NHL.
Give Calvert credit for going after the much bigger guy. Even though it was Victor Hedman. It appeared nothing landed from either guy. Draw.
Somebody actually thought Calvert won? Just because Hedman pulled him down on top of himself? NOBODY even landed a punch. Crap fight. Draw.
I think if Hedman had gotten his glove off in time to land that first shot this fight woulda been his. Calvert did sneak in some punches.
Draw. Hedman threw a few..landed none..Calvert threw a few..also landed none. Crap fight
Calvert once again goes with the much bigger Bolts defender. Same result as the Cernak fight. Likely a draw but, a slight edge to Calvert & 3.
Hedman looking at the scoreboard then a much smaller player .... and still gets beat
Not even really a fight. Some swinging and falling. I call the "mix-ups".
End of game guys were ready to hit the showers
Hedman should have just laid the lumber.
Calvert didn't land anything and takes Hedman down. Hedman probably landed the only punch. Ya gotta like the feisty little guy but he doesn't win a fight by jumping around like a monkey and then taking the other guy down...its called fighting not wrestling. Give it to Hedman. Hedman is probably trying to get ready to face Josh Anderson of Columbus again...after being totally embarrassed in the CUP games last season.
How the hell anyone voted Calvert is beyond me. Damn homers
Victor Hedman hahahahahahaha geezus.
Hedman followed Calvert after a uncalled slash. Hedman tried to haymaker Calvert who simply got underneath him and wrapped him up
Not sure why Headman was trying to be a tough guy. Easy win for Calvert, a veteran fighter.
Headman was never a fighter
2 in a game!
