Another draw, KW with some damage shots, JS with some damage shots as well, everyone goes home in the end.

Posted by JP5779 on February 13, 2011 at 05:44 PM

shelley with the big hits

Posted by scorp1on on February 14, 2011 at 07:48 AM

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.

Posted by Bluetiedown44 on February 13, 2011 at 11:05 PM

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.

Posted by bronxz00 on February 13, 2011 at 07:33 PM

Too close to call both landed some good shots Draw.

Posted by DARCY T on February 14, 2011 at 10:51 AM

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

Posted by riffraff on February 14, 2011 at 09:49 AM

good back and forth fight. draw.

Posted by b.t.wilson on February 13, 2011 at 09:42 PM

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.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on February 13, 2011 at 04:58 PM

Westgarth taking on the Big Boys and doing well. went back and forth, both had their moments, at the end of the day, Draw

Posted by fernben8 on February 14, 2011 at 12:35 PM

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.

Posted by CofRed92 on February 13, 2011 at 06:05 PM

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

Posted by greenbean316 on February 14, 2011 at 05:39 PM

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.

Posted by lb1631 on February 15, 2011 at 06:22 PM

Pretty good scrap. I think it's a draw.

Posted by Juha82 on February 14, 2011 at 03:06 AM

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.

Posted by glovedropper08 on February 14, 2011 at 10:01 PM

solid draw. Great fight.

Posted by JBar595 on February 14, 2011 at 11:35 AM

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.

Posted by drock_rust on February 14, 2011 at 12:31 PM

Good fight, strong short punches from Westgarth, and Shelly with the more typically long shots. DRAW!

Posted by rocky 1 on February 14, 2011 at 10:44 AM

Very close fight so a draw!

Posted by ItsDmac on February 13, 2011 at 05:19 PM

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.

Posted by RedWings=Trash on February 14, 2011 at 02:37 PM

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.

Posted by LawsonBarkhouse on February 27, 2011 at 11:43 AM

Have to hand it to Westqarth ,he ate some rights.The linesman saved him from some major pain.

Posted by QUIGGS22 on February 14, 2011 at 02:37 AM

Shelley wins,,not by much but he wins.

Posted by smasham on February 15, 2011 at 06:09 PM

Man, I think Shelley's punches were decide this one, he definitely had more juice....

Posted by StanFischler Jr on February 13, 2011 at 11:46 PM

I don't see how you can give Westgarth the win., Close win by Shelly

Posted by Shredder1976 on February 14, 2011 at 05:17 PM

Shelly... I hate those damm pussy jabs.. Shelly atleast landed a few real punches!

Posted by BrewzYourEye on February 14, 2011 at 06:48 PM

WIn Shelly

Posted by Behn Wilson on February 13, 2011 at 09:00 PM

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.

Posted by staceyb on February 13, 2011 at 05:19 PM

Shelley's punches were far more telling than the left-handed rabbit punches from Westy. W-Shelley.

Posted by letsdance24 on February 14, 2011 at 04:53 PM

Westgrath's jab just not going to get it done. Shelley landed some of those overhand rights

Posted by OffGoyim on February 13, 2011 at 07:53 PM

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.

Posted by throwenum on February 15, 2011 at 07:36 PM

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.

Posted by EDDUBBS on February 13, 2011 at 10:12 PM

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.

Posted by decostamail on February 13, 2011 at 06:21 PM

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

Posted by bd123 on February 14, 2011 at 09:26 AM

"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

Posted by teejay on February 15, 2011 at 02:32 PM

good bout

Posted by tyrone on February 14, 2011 at 12:16 AM

Am I missing something? So far the votes show the Princeton boy, but the Shellsterinko did better. W-Shelley.

Posted by huddles on February 14, 2011 at 07:51 AM

close win shelly signed fan of neither team,

Posted by BenEagerToFight on February 14, 2011 at 01:46 PM

Good bout. Shelley gets the win for the more damaging shots.

Posted by billy jack on February 13, 2011 at 10:28 PM

shelly looked like his punches had some snap,in a close fight gotta give it to the old guy.

Posted by BooSanta on February 14, 2011 at 11:44 PM

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.

Posted by markshark on February 19, 2011 at 08:30 PM

Shelly with the win, he threw heavier punches

Posted by jbaktai on February 14, 2011 at 06:46 AM

Win Shelly, Westgarth held his own though that fight was kind of close but shelly had the way better shots

Posted by chrisuko on February 14, 2011 at 09:38 PM

Shelley threw better, more solid punches. he gets the win

Posted by Sapunka16 on February 13, 2011 at 07:50 PM

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.

Posted by Flyers20Fan on February 15, 2011 at 04:36 PM

How is this a win for westgarth, W shelley , threw and landed more punches, westgarth's best shots were rabbit punches

Posted by MSD on February 14, 2011 at 08:39 AM

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.

Posted by tonetone1 on February 13, 2011 at 11:35 PM

i dont know how this can be called anything but a shelley win

Posted by WAKEUPTHEDEAD on February 13, 2011 at 07:11 PM

clear win for shelley. wg did good but not good enough. i swear you people have to be retarded to say wg won.

Posted by mudman55 on February 14, 2011 at 01:21 PM

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.

Posted by OneHitWonder on February 14, 2011 at 01:53 PM

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.

Posted by Reedy01 on February 16, 2011 at 12:04 AM

Slight edge to Shelley..Landed a few more quality blows

Posted by Blackbeard101 on February 20, 2011 at 04:28 PM

Close entertaining fight...slight edge to Shelley for landing the bigger blows.

Posted by ETR on February 13, 2011 at 07:01 PM

Edge Shelley with the bigger punches

Posted by Rebel Banker on February 13, 2011 at 08:20 PM

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.

Posted by TommyGun29 on February 14, 2011 at 10:58 AM

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!!

Posted by bephillips on February 14, 2011 at 08:07 PM

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!

Posted by Mayhem2011 on February 15, 2011 at 04:33 AM

Edge to Shelley

Posted by bighood24 on February 13, 2011 at 06:32 PM

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

Posted by GagsFightsToo on February 14, 2011 at 08:38 PM

Shelley wrecked Westgarth with major rights to the head. I don't know who got more punches, but Shelley's were huge.

It was close until Shelley turned away, stopped fighting and essentially quit. Win Westgarth.

Posted by slshbleed on February 13, 2011 at 08:52 PM

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.

Posted by pitslam on February 13, 2011 at 06:17 PM

Edge Westgarth.

Posted by LA KING FANATIC on February 14, 2011 at 08:40 PM

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

Posted by joeye4 on February 15, 2011 at 07:22 AM

Posted by Lucky33 on February 13, 2011 at 10:41 PM

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

Posted by swinny on February 13, 2011 at 06:08 PM

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.

Posted by Markiz77 on February 13, 2011 at 08:50 PM

Westgarth here better punches

Posted by Dropdaperchatki on February 13, 2011 at 06:54 PM

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)

Posted by garryking on February 13, 2011 at 06:32 PM

Both deserve some credit, slight edge Westgarth.

Nice to see Shelley fighting in his own weight class again and not ducking ( chickening) fighters like Carkner!

Posted by kocur2694 on February 13, 2011 at 08:02 PM

Westgarth with the good comeback win. Landed more in a good spirited bout. Shelley does not win too often anymore.

Posted by SCOOP on February 15, 2011 at 06:00 PM

Westy clearly outlasting the tiresome Shelly, also seemed to connect with more. Win WESTY.

Posted by Detroit_Caps on February 14, 2011 at 07:26 AM

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

Posted by AZfromNJ on February 15, 2011 at 01:44 AM

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.

Posted by GreatMurray on February 14, 2011 at 10:38 AM

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!

Posted by shs on February 15, 2011 at 02:48 AM

Nice fight, a lot of punches. Egde Westgarth, controlled it

Posted by jdm77 on February 13, 2011 at 11:32 PM

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.

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!

Posted by thebigbea55 on February 13, 2011 at 07:50 PM

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..

Posted by piney on February 15, 2011 at 04:27 PM

draw 5

Posted by TasCat on February 26, 2011 at 08:37 AM

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

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!!!!!!! :)

Posted by Oil Can Henry on February 13, 2011 at 10:28 PM

...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!

Posted by samtheman on February 14, 2011 at 07:04 PM

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.

Posted by briaro2050 on February 14, 2011 at 06:42 PM

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.
