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.
