Darren McCarty vs. Brad Norton
10/23/02
1 Pd 12:38
@DET LAK Brad Norton
McCarty takes a penalty and skates toward the box. In the meantime, Norton exchanges pleasantries with Kirk Maltby. This brings McCarty back into the fray to confront Norton. A little shovin, a glove-on right by Darren and there they go! McCarty gets the jump and smacks him with a good left. A little wrestlin goes on, Norton misses with a left and then shows some strength by pushing Mac up against the glass. Norton then misses with a right and his momentum brings him to the ice. McCarty lets him go, instead of sneaking a few extra shots in. Other Penalties: McCarty received a double tripping, instigator and misconduct.

Steve Begin vs. Darren McCarty
11/19/02
2 Pd 5:31
DET @CAL Steve Begin
Begin throws a hard hit on a Wing, and Darren decides to do a little enforcin'. He skates over to him and the gloves come off. Nice square off, with McCarty doing his old stance that hasn't been seen in quite a long time. They come together, with McCarty grabbing on with his right and Begin with his left. They go toe to toe with Begin clearly getting the advantage and landing 2 good solid shots to the face, and one hard blow striking Mac's helmet. McCarty's punches looked to be off the mark during this initial flurry. Now they get a good hold of each other, and McCarty switches hands and lands a right, followed by a body shot. They grapple a little more and Darren surprises Begin with a solid right uppercut to his chin. Both then fire simultaneous lefts, with both connecting. Only difference is Begin ends up on the ice.

@DET STL Bryce Salvador
McCarty, not tied down, comes out of his jersey and pads. Both are chucking them pretty good, then McCarty gets Salvador tied up and pretty much flips him and lands a solid punch when Salvador is on his knees trying to get up. He finally does and McCarty lands another solid shot and ties up Salvador. Then Salvador winds-up and throws a backhand forearm shiver. Other Penalties: McCarty received a game misconduct.

3 Pd 14:27
DET @STL Reed Low
They get matching minors, come out of the box and have a go at center ice. Low landed left hands and McCarty was also throwing them pretty well. Low lands some more as McCarty's jersey came completely off, earning him a gamer. Good fight. Other Penalties: McCarty received a game misconduct.
