Craig finds out the hard way that Bradley is one of the league's better ''non-fighter'', fighters.
eh...not much to see here. neither guy landed anything substantial. bradley's punches were to the top of craig's helmet...craig's to bradley's shoulder. both slip and fall to the ice. clear draw. it's amusing to see the 10 or so caps fans come out of the woodwork whenever one of their players comes close to actually winning a fight. close...but not quite.
Two pussies . Watch out Matt B. ,Carcillos behind you ! The Pens are sinking fast , I love it hahahahahahahaha. Bruise your eye you still suck weenie . And Maxime Talbot eats tampons . Pens suck !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
if anything this was a draw Bradley landed 1 more but other than that close!! DRAW
No defense in this fight...both guys just swinging wildly. Draw.
giving matt bradley the 0ne extra point in this bout.King and Engelland would have been a fight to see.
Bradley's hit on Cooke that preceeded the fight was awesome! Engelland didn't go after Bradley for a few reasons; Cooke should have responded, Egelland is in another class, King was in the lineup and could respond in kind, plus the hit was clean regardless of the bad call. Craig was looking to impress the coach by taking on Bradley. Watching Bradley's fights he probably assumed he could use him for a punching bag like everyone else. Bradley with a clear win (I'm a Caps fan and don't get to say that often about him)...
When did Bradley learn to fight? He must have watched everyone hit him in the face.
Bradley making out to be Joe Palooka.
' Is this the first fight Bradley ever won? '
Not as one sided as I thought it would be... Bradley in control and connects one uppercut but mostly hitting Craig's helmet ++. Gave it a 5.
I never get tired of seeing a Penguin taking a beating
He asked for it......and he got it. Win Bradley.
wow, matt bradley won a fight.
good spirited fight, much better than i expected. have to give the win to bradley for the reach advantage, but craig gave him a good go. good strategy, tuck in your chin and fire. 6.
Good scrap. edge Bradley
bradley gets the win in this fight.
bradley landed the majority and the stronger punches so he gets the clean win.
I have Bradley landing 3 of 9 to Craig's 1 of 9, good enough for a narrow win. (On a side note, the voting shows 9 votes for Bradley, 1 for Craig, 0 draws, yet one of the reviews here has called the fight a draw. Strange.)
Not a bad bout with the "improved" Bradley coming out on top, however, like most of us, would rather have seen Engelland or Rupp against Erskine or King.
Craig is a punching bag
That's leadership....they talk, they jaw and then the Penguin who started the fight gets pounded by a .500 (at best) fighter.
If it was payback for Cook why didn't Bradley find Cook. Why didn't Engelland find Bradley thereafter...Craigs not much of a fighter. Cook tries to take out Ovie's knee...so Bradley goes after a 3rd line guy...oops...that's all the Pen's have left. Bradley could have tried Stahl but he would have got his Butt kicked and Engelland probably would have went looking for somebody.
Bradley with the win.
Has a Penguin won a fight in awhile? Craig started good but it quickly went south
Too bad one of them isn't named Billy and one isn't named Stagger Lee.
short but entertaining fight with suprising outcome. surprising to me at least.win bradley.one of his right tagged craig and he turned to defensive mode...gave it 7
cant believe my eyes.....bradley actually winning a fight??
Lots of punches thrown, but appears that only Bradley's connect. Another win for Bradley who isn't afraid to take on other teams enforcers. Too bad he didn't fight Cooke. As for the fight fan 'holidaysintexas:" I always give an honest appraisal, but agree with fans from the Bruins and others that Cooke needs to be run out of the league. I love hockey and find it very odd that the league continues to allow his instigating and acting. Godard should find a more worthy opponent than going after an Islanders player who was stupid enough to go after a class act like Pens goalie Johnson. And the most worthy opponent for Godard is Cooke.
Craig finds out just how quick you can make the trip back down the turnpike to Scranton. Brads was throwing the jackhammer in this spirited fracas. Clear win for Bradley.
Damn, that's TWO Penguins Brads destroyed this game. I wish there were video of his hit on Matt Cooke.
Brads with the Win... I love the play that he and Hendricks have been bringing to the Caps. Gritty, full of energy, and not afraid to throw... two middleweights that throw heavyweight hits!
Looked like Craig wanted some and he got some....more than he could chew!! Bradley clobbered him...no contest.
Close, but I give the edge to bradley
Craig needs to get in the weight room if he wants to fuck with Brads, not to mention more time in the AHL.
Recently called up Craig wanted to be a tough guy and, what, stick up for Matt Cooke? Great. He got his ass kicked. And the Versus commentators talked about his nobility and class in doing the right thing for Cooke (and in having all his Wilkes-Barre teammates over for turkey on Thanksgiving: okay, that WAS nice. But What? For Bradley's ultra clean, ultra violent hit on a dirtbag who deserves every hit he takes (and for which Brads got 2 minutes in the box). More and more it's come to that: retaliations for clean, hard hits. So: Bradley gives up 20 lbs. to Craig but wasted little time in smacking him to the ice. Bravo, Brads.
Bradley played his a$$ off this game. Not only did he beat the crap out of Craig, he also planted Cooke on his ASS which was the highlight of my night in this game. Hey Bylsma, how did yall do against that "shaky" goalie (neuvy) the past two games?? two shutouts against you all?? yeah eat shit. CAPS!!!!
Bradley lit him up, no question about it.
Nice tilt.. edge Bradley in a flurry of punches
Bradley looked good, usually the guy who loses his helmet gets the worst of it, not this time. Nice toe to toe bout.
I don't know how RyanCraig even fought with Pierre blowing him the whole time. Craig stuck up for his teammate - even though it was the asshat Cooke (whiney cheapshot artist) but Bradley won this.
Bradley brought the hits this night
Bradley is the definate winner. Was great to see him clock Cooke too. Too bad there is no video of that one. Would love to watch it over and over again.
pretty close......but i give the edge to craig.
Good tilt call it a draw
Bradley is the man... he doesnt always win his fights, in fact he normally gets bloodied, but he always acts like a professional. Hes also got a nice straight right that makes a lot of tough guys cower
Bradley win one...handily,i might add
It was a pretty spirited fight but Bradley landed some pretty good shots for a decisive win here.
Nice fight and I 'm calling a Bradley hands down win>>>>. to be viewed again later!!!
Brads was a warrior tonight. He plastered Cooke earlier in the game and drew BS matching minors with Staal. Brads hit was clean. Even the announcers admitted almost as much. Then after Brads does his time, punk Cooke depends on one of his callups to try to get the piece of flesh. Bradley shows the kid how they do it in the NHL and wins pretty decisively although the kid did fight back hard against the assault. Bradley gets in a fight, lands his punches, knocks the guy down, and doesn't bleed? Clear win for one of the grittiest Caps.
Glad I watched this again. It's closer than it originally appeared to be. Bradley came out of this one with a big (for him) W, but not by much. I really enjoyed this one. Nothing but big, angry punches. I gave it a solid 7. Oh, and even as a Pens fan, even I agree that the hit was legal, deserved, and HUGE. I was pretty surprised that Cooke jumped right up after it.
alright scrap... both threw bombs but few were landed... bradley
