Crap scrap. Wouldn't even call this a fight. More of a wrestling match.

Posted by hockey_nut69 on January 26, 2011 at 03:29 PM

Armie has a broken finger don't even know why he dropped the gloves in the first place and he had tape on the finger isn't that illegal. anyways it was a draw no punches even landed

Posted by The DZA on January 25, 2011 at 11:33 PM

Possibly the worst filmed "fight" all season. It probably wasnt much anyways, but who will ever know. 1 and draw. That Tampa camera man has to pull his head out of his ass.

Posted by youthattack on January 25, 2011 at 11:37 PM

clean hit. armstrong is a bitch, so is downie. horrible camera work in this one. draw in a crap fight.

Posted by Bad Dawg on January 26, 2011 at 08:46 AM

Baby boy St.Louis gets clobbered with a clean hit and "Downie the Douche" jumps in to wipe St.Louis ass for him. Useless player Downie is, try fighting someone that can actually fight with 2 hands!!

Armstrong has a rep for doing stuff like this... but so does Downie... don't like either.. but Armstrong doesn't even throw one here! Cheap... Draw all the way... can't even see a punch...

Ladies, and gentleman... Your attention please... We interrupt regularly scheduled programming to bring you...Rob Martell's ass. Lol @ StaceyB.

Posted by b.t.wilson on January 25, 2011 at 11:46 PM

armstrong can definitely hold his own, but having not seen the game i had no idea about the finger injury. too bad, it would have been nice if he thumped downie, who being the consummate professional he is, stands up for his star. horrible camera work indeed. draw, i guess... poor phaneuf standing around again while a fight is happening. that sap is in over his head being the captain in TO.

Posted by acmocaco on January 26, 2011 at 09:40 AM

Isn't that kind of hit illegal now. I'm just confused because the blindside hit to the head never gets called. NHL officiating is a such a joke at this point.

Posted by bruiseyoureye on January 26, 2011 at 01:30 AM

armstrong wins with a ko.

Posted by trpaulson on January 26, 2011 at 01:03 PM

Downie wins 'cause he was on top, from what little you could see. Armstrong is a dirtbag hitter (smaller players, back & head shots). Would be a pleasure to see his career ended some night.

Posted by RedWings=Trash on February 02, 2011 at 06:00 AM

Colby Armstrong... obviously known for his reputation as a fighter (hahaha, yeah right) gets basically KO'd in two punches. Horrible fight, but good job by Downie to earn his pay. St. Louis could probably beat Colby's ass by himself though.

Posted by YouGotOwned on January 25, 2011 at 11:22 PM

wow love all the **tough guys** going after all the non fighters.... clean hit...st louis is just a bitch

Posted by ovechkinFTW on January 26, 2011 at 01:12 AM

Colby Armstrong always seems to make people pound on him.

Posted by jim_mckenzie33 on January 25, 2011 at 11:22 PM

Any time Pussystrong gets punished is a good day, but Downie only had time to give him a few cruddy love taps. Lost opportunity to really hand Col-bitch a beatdown.

Posted by koolpunch on January 25, 2011 at 11:40 PM

Not much of a fight, but worth mentioning that Armstrong mangled a finger earlier in the game. It looked broken & announcers were surprised when he returned in the third. You have to think that is why he just 'hung on' since it's unlikely he could grab or throw with his right.

Posted by Spug on January 26, 2011 at 02:38 AM

Armstrong was playing with a broken finger; he missed half the game because of it. I'm surprised he even dropped the gloves, his other hand wasn't in great shape either. I watched the Toronto feed and Downie landed some helmet shots but that was about it, give him the win I guess but really Armstrong wasn't going to throw anything even if the opportunity was open.

Posted by hughcares on January 26, 2011 at 12:00 AM

Downie who is one chromosome away from being retarded gives a few nuggies to the top of Armstrongs helmet - that sent a real strong message.

Posted by phillyBrashear on January 27, 2011 at 11:54 AM

Downie is a punk, but there aren't many players I dislike more in the league than Colby Armstrong. Kudos to Downie for defending his superstar, clean hit or not. You can't have that happening.

Posted by DARCY T on January 26, 2011 at 04:35 PM

i guess its edge downie.tough to say due to that fockin referee...i enjoyed the hit

Posted by fridaymatinee on January 27, 2011 at 12:04 PM

acmocaco-----Isn't that kind of hit illegal now. I'm just confused because the blindside hit to the head never gets called. NHL officiating is a such a joke at this point. <br> That was a perfectly clean hit. Armstrong's shoulder hit's St.Louis square in the chest/chin. Only reason he got him in the chin is cause the dude is 4 feet tall. Nowhere even close to a blindside hit even. Downie should have been smart and took off his lid. He knew full well going over there what he was gonna do.

Posted by Riomouse911 on January 28, 2011 at 12:49 AM

Phagoof watching another teammate get whooped.

Posted by bruins rule on January 26, 2011 at 07:41 PM

downie gets the win here.

Posted by m4rine77 on January 25, 2011 at 11:12 PM

wow, for once downie is fighting for his team mate and not for himself. usually he goes after people who hit him because he doesn't know how the game of hockey works. but this time he sticks up for the midget and wins decisively. gotta give him props

Posted by fernben8 on January 26, 2011 at 02:15 PM

This is one time when I'm siding with Downie for doing the right thing... Will sound like an oxy moron but Armstrong has a reputation of running talented players like that...(and Downie doesn't ?). Edge Downie. Gave it a 3.

Posted by music22224 on January 26, 2011 at 05:08 PM

Downie gets win over Armstrong!

Posted by Double Nickels on January 26, 2011 at 12:07 PM

Not the best video.

Posted by rico13 on January 27, 2011 at 11:04 AM

turtle armstrong is a good name for colby..cheap shot artist who is disgrace

Posted by tattooedkingpin on January 26, 2011 at 12:39 AM

horrible video, but from what i saw it looked like a W Downie. And why does it always seem to be Phaneuf just standing around watching his team mates get pummeled? Oh thats right, cause hes a Bitch.

Posted by staceyb on January 26, 2011 at 06:08 AM

Hey Ref #26--yeah you, Rob Martell--one man to a pair of pants! Next time don't block the ice level camera angle! Downie to the rescue after Armstrong gave a hard check to Saint St. Louis.

Posted by sunking1 on February 19, 2011 at 02:30 PM

good job for downie stepping in for st.louis colby needs to stop but go for a lightweight battle like with downie

Posted by AZfromNJ on January 29, 2011 at 11:41 AM

Garry Howatt, er, Stan Jonathan, er, 5-10 Steve Downey with win over a 6-2 guy. Downey sticking up for his best player. Well done.

Posted by GreatMurray on January 26, 2011 at 07:19 AM

Downie steps up after Armstrong runs St. Louis. Downie wins...not much of a fight, Great case for the instigator rule being pure HS! Armstrong should have gotten 2 for a rough or a board or a cross check. He got only the 5. Downie gets 2, 5, 10. Pure GARBAGE! Bettman needs to be Commissioner of the powder puffs league in San Francisco!

Posted by Gutz on January 26, 2011 at 09:18 AM

So is Leaf nation going to once again say that their player didn't want to fight? Brutal camera work! Phaneuf standing there watching yet another one of his team mates fight is exactly the kind of captain he is, stands around does nothing but talks a good game! Like all the rest of the Leafs you Phaneuf are a goof! Loser Leafs

Posted by flyerguy on January 26, 2011 at 04:20 PM

Armstrong is a worthless coward. He's on a perfect team full of cowards. Too bad someone didn't take a good hard run at him and end his career.

Posted by leeban on February 10, 2011 at 01:22 AM

Downie with the win but I dont understand why he had to fight Armstrong. It wasnt a hard hit it wasnt dirty. Just because it was St Louis ?? Come on people this is hockey thats how its played.

Posted by Bluetiedown44 on January 27, 2011 at 12:22 AM

Downie whips a hobbled Armstrong. Downie seems resurgent lately.

Posted by tocchetblue on January 26, 2011 at 06:09 AM

armstong is the biggest punk in the league

Posted by joeye4 on January 26, 2011 at 05:35 PM

easy win for downie

Posted by rocky 1 on January 26, 2011 at 05:03 PM

Win Downie! Good for Armstrong for sticking up for himself.

Posted by buzzgun2000 on January 26, 2011 at 08:51 PM

Hey! It's Steve Downie!

Posted by bigdog2007 on February 02, 2011 at 03:58 PM

Are you kidding me? Has Armstrong been watching Coltie Oreo too much?Way to take a beating Leafie! Typical puke Leaf taking a run at a player then can't back it up. Lol@kingpin...bingo!! Phagoof

Posted by AbuNidal on January 26, 2011 at 09:29 AM

lousy fight, wish both these guys would have concussed the other so we wouldn't have to look at their faces for awhile. That being said, in the heat of the moment, the hit probably looked dirty to Downie. Good for him.

Posted by Kordic64 on January 25, 2011 at 11:36 PM

Excellent camera work

Posted by chad420 on January 26, 2011 at 09:14 AM

win "SD" Jones

Posted by scribbs27 on January 26, 2011 at 09:28 AM

Armstong is a punk, but there was absolutely nothing dirty with the hit. St. Louis had the puck on his stick with his head down. you'd think he'd be smarter than that by now. still is good to see armstrong get beat up though

Posted by durka on January 28, 2011 at 02:44 PM

man! colby should no better than to go for st. louis like that lol. downie killed for a change.
