I was never too impressed with Rupp and that just makes me less impressed. Rupp was hurt by the early right at :16 but stood like a man to try to regain his senses until Shelley caught him on the side of the head again. Great job by the veteran Shelley. Nice to see an old fashioned TKO knockdown for a change.

Posted by dave_brown on April 03, 2012 at 10:32 PM

TKO Shelley. As others have said, KARMA. Not shown on that video is Shelley giving the Jagr salute. A response from Rupp giving the salute during the Winter Classic.

The bozos who voted for Rupp must be from Staten Island

Posted by capsfloors on April 04, 2012 at 12:55 AM

Shelly with the win. Rinaldo with the loss. Rangers with the season series SWEEP. Oh and tpr1960 sucks!

Posted by nycbob on April 04, 2012 at 09:38 AM

Only thing phillys won all year.HA!!!! By the way I was there and the Philly fans continue to be the most ignorant bunch of white trash in all of sports. I know you most of the fans didn't graduate high school but really the number of over weight trailer park dwellers that tried to start a fight with a Ranger fan was hysterical and disgusting all at once. Get a life and a hockey team, the whole league thinks you are trash.

Posted by classic4 on April 04, 2012 at 10:56 AM

Thought Rupp might have lost a contact but looks like the only thing he lost was his dignity.

Posted by flyerfighter73 on April 04, 2012 at 06:01 AM

Shelley clubbed him pretty good! Shelley with the TKO. Sad thing is there are not to many true heavyweights around like in the past.Shelley is at the end of his line and was surely fun to watch.Just hoping he gets in the lineup this weekend against the Pens just in case he needs to turn back time and thump some Pens.

Posted by CofRed92 on April 03, 2012 at 10:33 PM

Shelley easy. no idea what was wrong with Rupper. He barely put up a fight

Posted by Hank_Mardukas on April 03, 2012 at 08:42 PM

Shelley with a KO. I'm not sure which shot was the one that did it since it seemed like the one that put Rupp down wasn't the bomb that hurt him.

Posted by spencer on April 04, 2012 at 12:59 PM

Hey Secord.......Rupp was right. Shelley is STILL irrelevant. Game and conference.....Rangers. Ya dope ya.

Posted by lb1631 on April 06, 2012 at 10:19 AM

Sam Rosen thinks Rupp is a heavy weight?? Rupp threw nothing here and got his ass handed to him. Win Shelley.

Posted by scorp1on on April 04, 2012 at 01:07 AM

Shelly beat the shyte out of Rupp's ear. Win and a 6.

Posted by tpr1960 on April 04, 2012 at 03:36 PM

Shelley with the goodol fashioned beat down. Whoever voted for chuckandduck Rupp, well... you suck.

Posted by Hkmert1 on April 03, 2012 at 11:38 PM

Shelley sucks....Rupp sucked more.....

Posted by jlmcgui on April 06, 2012 at 04:32 PM

Win for Shelley, Regular Season is over; so long Jody Shelley ........

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on April 06, 2012 at 02:44 AM

Shellllleeeeeey

Posted by KillianMac on April 03, 2012 at 11:03 PM

Shelly's got a face like a catchers mitt! Rupp can at least play the game.

Posted by rangerfantwins on April 04, 2012 at 08:45 AM

why didnt the rangers play john scott?they trade for the toughest guy in the league and instead put this stiff rupp on the ice.confused?

Posted by Al20Secord on April 04, 2012 at 04:26 AM

A good bout cut short by a slip of the boot.

Posted by chad420 on April 06, 2012 at 10:44 AM

Thats a good win for Shelley...hes still got it

Posted by travist on January 08, 2014 at 11:22 PM

oof.

Posted by dorian on April 04, 2012 at 10:30 AM

Gee. I am sure am glad we got to see how both benches reacted. That was really important. *rolls eyes* Anyone else sick of the pointless camera angles???

Posted by SouthPaw017 on April 04, 2012 at 01:34 AM

Shelley Rupps one out all over his dome....

Posted by kkdowning on April 04, 2012 at 12:02 AM

Not sure if that was a TKO, but it was all Franken-Shelley

Posted by WickedMonstah on April 04, 2012 at 11:57 AM

Rupp put down by 2 behind the ear. win Shelley and a 7

Posted by HchVegasNHL57 on April 04, 2012 at 01:02 AM

The man with a girls name > the man who is a big girl. TKO! And that just made my day.

Posted by Bob Probert 24 on April 04, 2012 at 07:08 AM

TKO-Shelley! He still has some throw in them mitts. Surprised at Rupp's lack of show. Maybe he's playing hurt.

Posted by TrueBlue26 on April 03, 2012 at 09:52 PM

rupper pruster boyler

Posted by Joceron on April 05, 2012 at 09:36 AM

Could be worst showing of Rupp's career. Yowza's.

Posted by Don Berry on April 03, 2012 at 09:34 PM

Every year Shelley has a big time Knock out but seems to struggle every other fight! Might be his last year in NHL. He most be a hell of character guy.

Posted by kimo_coyote on April 05, 2012 at 12:23 AM

Shelley. Clear one of his better fights recently, Rupp is no pushover.

Posted by fernben8 on April 05, 2012 at 01:55 AM

Two evenly matched blokes (in terms of fighting skills)... It's the first time I see Rupp being knocked down with a solid right.

Posted by fade2black on April 04, 2012 at 12:26 AM

Pretty much what I expected. Sure Rupp has a good bout here and there but hes not THAT an accomplished fighter. His size and reach help him out in a good amount of bouts but here he runs into a guy of similar stature but many more scraps under his belt and heavier puncher for sure. Would have prefered to see Big John Studd dressed and drop em with Shelly but oh well.And I wish there was a way to see Big Mac in the Pens lineup for the Flyer showdown on Saturday...d*mnit anyhow!

Posted by Nick_Fotiu on April 04, 2012 at 10:04 AM

Stinging your opponent with a quick one early (as Shelley clearly did to Rupp) makes for downhill sledding the rest of the way. Kudos to Rupp for not begging out after that.

Posted by kinga101 on April 03, 2012 at 11:19 PM

Every time you think Shelley is washed up as a fighter he comes back with an impressive win over a guy that's having a real good year with the dukes.

Posted by fentonhardy on April 05, 2012 at 12:34 PM

TKO for the old man! Glad to see Rupp get his head pounded after his no class comment about Shelley earlier in the season and his no respect salute after scoring a goal during the Winter Classic. The guy's a punk, and got it handed to him.

Posted by theSDauncey on April 04, 2012 at 02:48 AM

too easy shelley

Posted by dontpokeTheBear on April 03, 2012 at 08:44 PM

Rupp is a big p@ssy

Posted by peteybrown on April 03, 2012 at 09:15 PM

Smashed to the ice with big rights. Stunned him early, then finished him with a clear TKO. Shelly gets sweet revenge for Rupps lack of respect earlier in the season.

Posted by cible on April 03, 2012 at 11:47 PM

the flyers had to bring back shelley after the beating they took againts pittsburgh last sunday. Great showing by shelley, never understood why they took him out of the lineup for the psss rinaldo????

Posted by nixu on April 04, 2012 at 02:22 AM

Wow! Impressive win by Shelley! This guy is too old? Shut up!

Posted by DARCY T on April 05, 2012 at 07:50 AM

rupp was more active of those 2 at the beginnig but shelley's right at 0:15 definately stung rupp.after that he stopped throwing...tko win shelley and gave it a 7 edit: how come this fight has an average rating 6,5 out of 146 votes if first crap fight of this game rinaldo vs prust 5,0 out of 113 votes???

Posted by canamrugby on April 04, 2012 at 06:47 AM

Wow, old Shelley totaally kicked Rupp's ass.

Posted by BIG AL SECORD on April 04, 2012 at 08:45 AM

IRRELEVANT??? LOL...Rupp demonstrates why he ducked Jody all season. Karma is a BEYOTCH MR RUPP.

Posted by Jellyczar on April 05, 2012 at 06:55 PM

Wow...Shelley looking rejuvenated and Rupp losing some luster of late... a 7 and all Jody.

Posted by HockeyFanMN on April 04, 2012 at 07:12 PM

How does Rupp even have a single vote???

Posted by BooSanta on April 07, 2012 at 11:21 AM

After seeing the 24/7 with Rupp calling the Shell irrelevant, then doing the Jagr salute after a goal in the Classic, ya knew he had to pay. Rupp's gotta quit the day job of fighting and crash the nets more like the Owen Nolans, Keith Tkachuks, and well, believe or not, Simply Scotts (Hartnell). Shell with his best victory since donning a Shark uniform, and did the Jagr salute while Rupp shook off the moths in his head. Rangers however, would respond with 3 more goals that period, which explains their dominace this year (lunqvist). Can't understand why fighting just doesn't turn a game around sometimes. (lunqvist)

Posted by homeland on April 04, 2012 at 08:56 AM

Shelley handled him pretty well.

Posted by mmadced on April 03, 2012 at 10:11 PM

homer annoucers did'nt have much to say as BOOM BOOM out goes the lights. TKO

Posted by PUMMELED on April 04, 2012 at 01:58 PM

Rupp got DROPPPPED!!! I always thought Rupp was overrated as a fighter, and this ass-kicking proves it.

Posted by ssully1618 on April 04, 2012 at 01:30 AM

Rupp got knocked right out by shrek, Ref to Rupp, "Sorry bro, you got knocked out if you weren't sure, hit the showers."

Posted by HockFighter on April 04, 2012 at 02:27 AM

In what was otherwise a completely miserable season series vs the Rangers, this might be the one bright spot all year. Karma's a bitch. So is Rupp. Way to go Shelley!

Posted by JethroGilles on April 03, 2012 at 08:57 PM

Rupp gets hammered time and again here... Shelly not playing much but that may get him some ice on Saturday

Posted by johnkos on April 03, 2012 at 10:49 PM

Shelley erupped multiple rights to Rupp's head. No contest. What comes around goes around. SALUTE!

Posted by fenians79 on April 05, 2012 at 03:33 AM

Rupp got rocked...tough guy to stay up for that long after taking some bombs. Clear W for Shelley. 6% of NY fans on here need an eye exam.

Posted by The Mad House on April 03, 2012 at 10:46 PM

Great job by Shelley here, and they didn't show it on this video but when Shelley was skating off he did the Jagr salute because Rupp did it when he scored in the Winter Classic. Hockey players sure do have long memories. Love it!

Posted by Orig6 on April 04, 2012 at 12:13 PM

How is this not a 100% W for Shelley? Absolute domination and I'm not a fan of either team or fighters. If I was a Rangers or Rupp fan, I would still have to give this to Shelley... Not a Doubt.

Posted by spencerayres6 on April 05, 2012 at 10:06 AM

Shelley good fight, when I watch this guy fight each fight its impossible to tell its the same guy he has great fights or looks like shit goes back and fourth like everyother fight, still good fight win Shelley

Posted by M3_Stick on April 05, 2012 at 08:46 AM

Hey flyerfighter73, Look up what DE did to Shrek last season....

Rupps a useless plug , couldn't beat Shelley's grandma

Posted by phlflyers on April 04, 2012 at 10:13 PM

Did anyone see Shelly do the Jagr salute at the end? Retribution for breaking Jagrs balls in the classic

Posted by Joescribe on April 06, 2012 at 08:00 AM

Rupp got smoked and Shelly gave him the Jagr salute!

Posted by psustu on April 04, 2012 at 12:13 PM

Shelley with the TKO.. The salute was fitting.. By the way cant wait till Saturday. Hope it means nothing..

Posted by mr hockey on April 03, 2012 at 08:45 PM

that my friends is as close to a KO your gonna get SHELLY WITH AN ASS KICKIN OF Rupp he done they better play John Scott LMFAO

Posted by Canner on April 03, 2012 at 10:31 PM

Can someone remind me of the smack talk that Rupp was laying down on Shelley ? Good one Madced, Pat Travers, Out Go The Lights.... Rupp's new moniker should be 'Pat Travers'

Posted by Detroit_Caps on April 04, 2012 at 07:11 AM

awww Rupp, did your "contact slip" again?

Posted by slavv on April 04, 2012 at 08:57 PM

Shelley dominated this one. Rupp got 5 for getting TKO'd....

Posted by GreatMurray on April 04, 2012 at 07:59 AM

This one caught me by surprise. Rupp is a fairly tough customer but he got smoked by Shelley. TKO win for Shelley. It would like to see Engelland and Shelley go. Or Perhaps they will dress MacIntyre for the Saturday game. Neither Shelley nor Mac will get ice in the play-offs.

Posted by Bostonslugfest on April 04, 2012 at 06:53 PM

HOLY HELL!!! Shelley FINALLY showed up in a match... im proud of the ugly guy. and WOW what a TKO on the strap... great fight great fight.... Shelley wins tho

Posted by BostonBruins813 on April 03, 2012 at 09:37 PM

Great win

Posted by EDDUBBS on April 04, 2012 at 10:06 PM

Shelley demonstrates how to patiently wait for your opportunity; he picked it and he soundly destroyed the over rated classless Rupp. TOTAL DOMINATION! If the Rangers play the Sens they lose the series. Rangers will not last long in any series -they are over hyped as well Looked at the fight again - Shelley with the knockout. Rupp that useless piece of junk never returned to the game

Posted by Mike_O on April 04, 2012 at 02:05 PM

Rupp was hurt and was hanging on when Shelly decked him. I find it amazing that the one sided Ranger announcers didn't even comment as Rupp was getting his butt kicked.........not so during the Prust fight.

Posted by ThrowdownSJ408 on April 03, 2012 at 11:04 PM

Posted by Stevens Lindros on April 03, 2012 at 08:47 PM

Posted by RyanLovestoKO on April 07, 2012 at 09:28 AM

Well, Rupp said Shely wasn't an NHL player during winter classic...um, well, who knocked him out then?:P

Posted by UPitt26 on April 03, 2012 at 10:12 PM

Haha rupp obviously won that one. Stupid New Fans lol

Posted by bammer24 on April 04, 2012 at 02:29 AM

It`s good to see Rupp brought back down to earth by a real Heavyweight who has earned it over the years.Not saying Rupp is not tough but very really with the big boys.Now you can see why.That was a straight shot.Shelley is a tough son of bitch.

Posted by klobersaurus on April 05, 2012 at 08:18 AM

I wonder if rupp still thinks Shelley is irrelevant after that beating he put on him.

Posted by Az1234567 on April 03, 2012 at 09:53 PM

Flyers still lost lol

Posted by jpleath on April 03, 2012 at 09:06 PM

Weak fight but Shelley with the win.

Posted by staceyb on April 03, 2012 at 09:05 PM

Rupp got throttled early on and at the end he was a sitting duck for the TKO punch. Maybe he went down just to save his senses. So Jody Shelley, where ya' been for the past two years? That was payback to Rupper for his on-ice insults during the HBO shooting.

Posted by Bullybeatdown on April 03, 2012 at 11:22 PM

Come on Rupper, gotta protect yourself when you're hurt! Win Shelley.

Posted by blackngold on April 03, 2012 at 09:18 PM

Hahaha karma is a bitch! Watch your mouth next time Rupp. Look who's irrelevant now!

Posted by PKisel34 on April 03, 2012 at 08:54 PM

Seemed like that last shot hit helmet but strong enough to drop him. I have not seen Rupp return for the Rangers. Win Mr. Irrelevant.

Posted by slarrivee11 on April 03, 2012 at 09:41 PM

Shelley had him rocked with a left jab..Just overpowered him..........good fight
