The fight breakdown
This game had some bad blood in it already. Brady Tkachuk and Casey Cizikas came together and started to jostle and shove in front of the Sens bench. They come together and it's fight time.
Tkachuk grabs a hold of Cizikas' collar and tosses him back and forth some and Cizikas looks like he may not even fight; then he tosses off the gloves. Cizikas throws the first big punch, just missing with his right. Tkachuk comes back with his own right as the two start trading blows. Not much landing it seems. Tkachuk throw to rights as Cizikas turns his back and then the two start to wrestle to get back to being face to face. Lots of jostling as they skate towards the boards in front of the bench. Brady gets a body punch in and then they shove some more and as Tkachuk gets shoved into the boards, the refs just step in and stop it.
Casey Cizikas Notes -
For Cizikas, this was his first fight of the season. His last fight came in the 2017-18 season on December 9th, 2019 against Jake Debrusk of the Boston Bruins.
It was his first career fight against Brady Tkachuk and his first career fight against someone from the Ottawa Senators.
This was the 3rd fight for Cizikas in the NHL
Brady Tkachuk Notes -
For Tkachuk this is his first fight of the season. His last fight came in the 2018-19 season on February 14th, 2019 against Jonathan Ericsson of the Detroit Red Wings.
It was his first career fight against Casey Cizikas and his first career fight against someone on the New York Islanders.
This was the 4th fight for Tkachuk in the NHL.
Brady vents his frustration with an abymsal team start by going after the least potent of the potent 4th line. Overall not a bad draw & 3.
Close win for Tkachuk.
Cizikas finally dropped them because he had to, at least Brady wanted to go..............
I’ll give Tkachuk credit for not throwing until Cizikas committed to the fight. A draw though nothing landed
Brady got in more jersey tugs and win...
I don't thin k either of them landed anything...Draw but I could go for Ciziakas as well.
