Other Penalties: Los Angeles received a too many men on the ice penalty.
Another draw, KW with some damage shots, JS with some damage shots as well, everyone goes home in the end.
shelley with the big hits
Shelly wanted it more at the start but it was an even if not spiritied bout. Obviously the kind of fight where partisans can pick and choose good moments for either combatant. In my book that means a draw.
Westgarth does a great job early in the fight to punch and withdraw from Shelley's reach. (Surprised experienced Shelley allows this). They both throw with energy. Shelley rallies with vicious rights and Westgarth answers after weathering the blows. Love to see the lefts and jabs here. Nice close bout.
Too close to call both landed some good shots Draw.
westgarth is getting better imo...shelley threw 4-5 punches in a row but they didnt seem to connected and shelley looked tired after that which allowed westgarth to throw series of punches of his own...i call it draw and gave it 6
good back and forth fight. draw.
good long scrap. draw, 6. it is a strange thing indeed to see a fight go 42% for one player, 41% to the other, and 16% draw. that seems to defy logic.
Westgarth taking on the Big Boys and doing well. went back and forth, both had their moments, at the end of the day, Draw
Momentum swings going each way... Both landed but nothing solid. I feel Westgarth throws and relies too much on his uppercuts, Giving it a Draw.
Mr. Hockey, you dont deserve your name if you think Jody and philly suck.....you're obviously not very smart. close fight, I dont think anybody have much of an edge. Good job to both Westy and Shelley
With Shelley's season so far I was impressed, but Westgarth's pour defense gave Jody a shot. I called it a draw after thinkn Westgarth with a slight edge. Solid start for Shelley with Westy finishing strong. Thought we were gonna see this right after the Clifford fight.
Pretty good scrap. I think it's a draw.
Great show by both man in this good scrap. Both sneaked in several shots, shelley landed mostly better. Its either draw or edge Shelley but i choice a DRAW because Westy actually landed some impressive uppercuts.
solid draw. Great fight.
All I've got to say is, the announcers was a homer for Westgarth, according to him he blow up Shelley with a A-bomb.
Good fight, strong short punches from Westgarth, and Shelly with the more typically long shots. DRAW!
Very close fight so a draw!
Solid fight, I got it as a draw here.. If Shelley woulda been able to take West down he woulda had it. Back and forth, nice one to check out.
This is so close. I almost want to give it to Westgarth just for eating up all of those punches and still throwing. I gotta call it a Draw but this is an incredible hockey fight. No hug-fest/jersey pull here.
Have to hand it to Westqarth ,he ate some rights.The linesman saved him from some major pain.
Shelley wins,,not by much but he wins.
Man, I think Shelley's punches were decide this one, he definitely had more juice....
I don't see how you can give Westgarth the win., Close win by Shelly
Shelly... I hate those damm pussy jabs.. Shelly atleast landed a few real punches!
My Philly insider mentioned that he noticed that Shelley has gradually been returning to form since about mid season, If Westgarth keeps on fighting the legit heavies, and holding his own...I may have to start taking him seriously. I even subtly stopped referring to him a Hanson brother recently.
Shelley's punches were far more telling than the left-handed rabbit punches from Westy. W-Shelley.
Westgrath's jab just not going to get it done. Shelley landed some of those overhand rights
What! "Knuckel Eater" westgarth actually looked like a fighter there and took on a bigtime fighter in Shelley in the end though had to give the bout to Shelley since he had the bigger blows.
Wesgarth wakes up on Valentine's Day like he slept wrong on the pillow. Shelley's bombs to the neck don't draw blood but inflict the pain. Don't throw the 'ol guy out with the bath water just yet. Bit premature to annoit Wesgarth.
Strong fight for these guys. Shelly had bad position and ate those jabs but he hit Westgarth with thundering shots and I give Shelly the win, with no downside for Westgarth who is coming along strong.
I was at the game. The Shelley connections were bombs and had to hurt. Westgarths shots were baby punches in comparison. Trust me. Shelley inflicted the pain
"Looks like Westgarth was in control for the fight" ??????? Yeah right, how could anyone vote a Wg win haha. At least, it's a draw
Am I missing something? So far the votes show the Princeton boy, but the Shellsterinko did better. W-Shelley.
close win shelly signed fan of neither team,
Good bout. Shelley gets the win for the more damaging shots.
shelly looked like his punches had some snap,in a close fight gotta give it to the old guy.
You'll need a full screen to see that Shell landed some flush rights on Wildwest. Wildwest didn't seem phased and did some dentistry on Shell with some good jersey jabs and a glancing uppercut. However, you can't take out a vet like Shell with jersey Jabs. The punch stat won't lie either. Shell lands more and better punches. Hopefully WildWest will answer the bell with Shell again. Look for more Westgarth in the future.
Shelly with the win, he threw heavier punches
Win Shelly, Westgarth held his own though that fight was kind of close but shelly had the way better shots
Shelley threw better, more solid punches. he gets the win
Reviewing each fighter's best landing punches; Shelley landed five good rights (0:22 to 0:24), Westgarth landed a good uppercut immediately after this, Shelley landed two good rights (0:30 to 0:31), Westgarth responded with 6 jersey jabs (0:33 to 0:36), Shelley ended the flurry by landing a right. Westgarth went for body shots and jersey jabs, neither of which seemed to bother Shelley at all. You can see him just take the flurry of jersey jabs without being affected, as he simply stood there and came back with a right. Shelley landed several good rights on Westgarth, and gets at least a narrow win here in a pretty good fight. I don't see how this could be a win for Westgarth if you take the quality of the punches into account. Westgarth landed several body shots, but when you compare the amount that landed on each fighter's head, Shelley has 8 overhand rights to Westgarth's 1 uppercut and 6 jersey jabs.
How is this a win for westgarth, W shelley , threw and landed more punches, westgarth's best shots were rabbit punches
Hey, was that Sean Avery throwing the quick first punch??? My god, someone else does it too, gasp. Avery Haters eat crow. Also, you must be blind if you didn't pick Shelly as the winner, must more solid punches.
i dont know how this can be called anything but a shelley win
clear win for shelley. wg did good but not good enough. i swear you people have to be retarded to say wg won.
I gotta go with Shelley. More damage inflicted. And when was the last time the "Other Penalties" section listed "xxxxx received a too many men on the ice penalty"?? Bench minors don't normally breed fisticuffs.
Shelley is starting to look half way alright; hopefully he turns it around for the home stretch of the season. Props to Westgarth, he hung in there pretty well with a legit heavy. W to Shelley.
Slight edge to Shelley..Landed a few more quality blows
Close entertaining fight...slight edge to Shelley for landing the bigger blows.
Edge Shelley with the bigger punches
Shelley landed the best punches... 4 or 5 really good shots that stunned Westgrath. I like Westgarth and Clifford. For young guys they show a lot of class in their fights.
edge Shelley...I think he was attempting to make it a toe to toe. I don't like the sweater jabs...... throw bombs and get r done!!
Very even fight, though Westgarth;s main punches were the rabbit punch thrown by his HOLD hand. Shelley had some real good punches, obviously missed by the people commentating the game. Close, but Shelley wins!
Edge to Shelley
shelleys punches were way heavier and had to take more out of westgarth than westgarths punches... win for shelley, although he could have done without the cross-check
Shelley wrecked Westgarth with major rights to the head. I don't know who got more punches, but Shelley's were huge.
win westgarth Shelly and Philly both suck lol
This Westgarth kid is game as hell! Slight egde Westgarth.
It was close until Shelley turned away, stopped fighting and essentially quit. Win Westgarth.
Westy continuing to improve....nice Win... Shelley: Hang 'em up you washed up, toothless, gorilla.
Westgarth all the way, whats this shit about shelly rounding into shape....He is an absolute waste...look at the tape Westgarth used him as a punching bag
Has Shelly WON a fight this year?????? W for WEST
slow start for westgarth but finished strong shelley should retire hes done win westgarth
Here comes Flyerville making up the difference for Shelley, this is why some of his draws are losses. Sorry guy's the guy in the end fighting is the winner
Nice lumber to the back. Guess cross checking is no longer a penalty in the NHL...
Solid win for Westgarth!
"bombs" that don't reach are still misses. Westy lands more shelley girl turns his back and ducks till the ref bails him out...he lost and he knew it.
flyers still need a tough guy
w for w
Westgarth stung Shelley with the sweater punch. Not everybody can throw the sweater punch and do damage. Also, either Shelley's punches didn't land that flush or Westgarth has no pain receptors in his head. I think Westgarth landed the more quality shots.
KW is jsut too young, too strong and too resilient for Sheely, Kevin is learning the tricks and he really hung in there, takes shots and loves the scrap, when he got open and let loose he tagged the better shots. Love the hand claps at the end, no show boat ala Tie Domi, he is applauding the fight, does it even when he loses
Edge to Westgarth
Wesgarth lands the more meainngful punches and gets a close W.
Westgarth got more damaging blows in - Win Westgarth
gave westgarth the edge in this fight.
Good scrap. Westgarth's uppercuts landed several times. Shelley got in a decent shot, and it didn't even phase Westy. Westgarth definitely had the upper hand and once Shelley lost his helmet all he wanted to do was clinch. W for Westy
Are people not seeing the same fight as I am? Westgarth with the definite edge in this one. Shelley had to answer for his cheap knockdown and he did with is face.
Westgarth here better punches
Shelley was done half way through. Westgarth in control from start to finish. Maybe his best fight of his career. (usually West gets ass kicked)
Both deserve some credit, slight edge Westgarth.
Thats a close bout. good scrap by both fighters. slight edge goes to westgarth
Nice to see Shelley fighting in his own weight class again and not ducking ( chickening) fighters like Carkner!
Westgarth with the good comeback win. Landed more in a good spirited bout. Shelley does not win too often anymore.
Westy clearly outlasting the tiresome Shelly, also seemed to connect with more. Win WESTY.
I dont think a shotgun would phase this kid. . .It seems like Westgarth can absorb almost any punch thrown at him. . .
Good fight.... Westgarth with a good slight win...Good fight
Good bout between heavyweight past and heavyweight future. I'll give this one by the slimmest of margins to the 2013 champ! He was getting beat but landed that wicked uppercut at the 25 second mark that stunned Shelley and the solid jabs at the end had the vet scrambling. Shelley landed some good punches also and is starting to look like the Jody of old.
A BigBoy fight for sure! Westgarth wins a very close fight. Shelley looked a little surprised after the fight...don't know why, Westgrath is a tough customer!
Nice fight, a lot of punches. Egde Westgarth, controlled it
Close win for Westgarth. His punches seemes to have more effect. Shelley's big rights didn't seem to affect Westgarth while Westgarth's short lefts seems to jolt Shelley's head a bit.
The SCUMBAG filthy flyer lost big time.
What a great fight to watch, Very close and both guys throwing a lot of hands around, Shelleys flurry dont seem have have connected much or done much damage but westgarth follows with a nice uppercut followed by a nice series of short jabs. a pleasure to watch for any hockey fan!
draw.. both got good shots in... not sure how Shelley didn't get a penalty there.. cross checking or interference.. westgrath didn't even have the puck there..
I had to call this a draw, Shelley saw Westgarth screw up and play the puck so gave him a good wack in the back figuring if called, it would still at least be even, a bad play on his part but got lucky. Westgarth answers as Shelley dreams of Big John Scott pummeling Kevin into 70's pro rasslin'. Shelley never gets control as Westgarth's "Joisey Jabs" pops Shelley's helmet off like a rock'em sock'em robot and keeps him at bay long enough to cheer for no blood in the penalty box... This is what happens when you see so many puns and hear rabid descriptions from the color guy while reviewing too many matches in one sitting and try to make a mediocre draw into the match of the century..Buick Century maybe....ack! I did it again, you are now returned to your regular programming. Draw, final answer
Back and forth action, never been a Shelley fan since his AHL days when he was a thug that crossed the line a lot. Draw.
"Puttin on the foil ,aye boys"...nice Old Guard vs New Guard fight....Shelly draws with the Hanson Brother here
Close bout. Both landed some good shots. Draw
nice invitation by shelley lol.
I'm givin it to Shelley but I do agree with someone"s post from awhile back about him losing it..... He just doesn't seem the fighter he WAS Maybe getting punched in the head a few THOUSAND times has a little something to do with it............Just putting that out there!!!!!!! :)
Westgarth landed more, but Shelley landed bombs
...Good job by Westgarth to stay on his skates,... keep his helmet on straight,... and eat right hands - win Shelley. Thanks for pointing-out the "grab-hand" is used for jersey-jabs, also,....we didn't know that!
Slight edge to Shelley. They landed a similar number of punches but Shelley landed some big rights and Westgarth mostly short jabs. Pretty good showing for both though.
All that punk Westgarth could do was throw those feminie dirty boxing jabs....Shelley was stunning him with big shots, while Westgarth's bombs were way off the mark.
westgarth hits shelley with little rabbit puches and you think he won? shelley win no question
Good old Shelley!! Westgarth with the win, how badly do this guys hands hurt. Yow!! Big stuff by both guys, Jodi wins on initiation, Westgarth wins in the fight!!
Real good fight. Just about everything that was thrown, landed.
