Gallagher was in everyone's face all game. I think Kostka's reaction was more of a night of frustration. This is about the 3rd altercation in the 3rd period so there was a log going besides just this. Kostka delivers lesson. Be nice to your elders.

Glad that visor wearing punk Gallagher got the beating he deserved.

fkyweight bout gave Kostka the win in a crap fight by 2 non fighters

Kostka picking on young Gallagher and the refs don't step in, but when Prust grabs Grabovski, refs jump in right away... seems fair enough

kostka gets the win.

I was about to rag on Kostka for picking on a pint sized Hab... Though second look showed Gallagher asked for it. He pushed Phaneuf on top of the goalie and gave Kostka that last extra shove to make him fair game.

not that great kostka caught him off guard a little bit. W for the Leafs.

Gallagher used to be a comedian in the USA famous for smashing watermelons while on stage splashing the elite front row spectators.

Fail Gallagher

Posted by kkdowning on February 12, 2013 at 08:00 AM

I guess Gallagher needing to show he can't be pushed around (too much) gets pushed around quite a bit by Kostka. At least it wasn't Colton Orr.

Another win for the leafs on this night

Posted by BetterDaysComin on February 16, 2013 at 02:19 PM

Gallagher is going to be great for the Habs, small gutsy and skilled with just enough Irish in him to make him nearly impossible to intimidate. Should stick to fighting somewhere within 2 or maybe 3 weight classes from his own but kudos on him for actually doing it on a night the Habs in general took off. As for being schooled?....yeah Dion took him into the boards pretty hard a couple times,but the kid showed heart, not only getting off his ass each time, but in not hesitating to go right back up against the big guy. Coaches league wide dream of players with the type of heart this kid brings, had he the size to fit the fight and desire in him he'd be the ultimate in what any and every team wants.

So good to see the bitter Canadien fans out this am to vote on this fight. i feel sorry for Carey Price having to play for such a pussy team. Congrats on Markov playing his 12th game of the season, quadrupling his games over the last 4 years! Way to go bandaid! Gallagher the comedian, at least the way he fights, getting his ass handed to him.

1st nhl fight for both.gallagher just tried not to get hurt...edge kostka

Posted by Flames9339 on February 09, 2013 at 10:06 PM

Kostka with the win over a flyweight.

Posted by staceyb on February 10, 2013 at 08:04 AM

The bout goes to Kostka, strictly a case of the schoolyard bully beating up on the little kid in the third grade. Gallagher was trying to egg on his comatose teammates who were absolutely humiliated last night on home ice. Gallagher himself blew a play covering JVR that led to a goal.

Theres a problem in Montreal and it is there too small!Toronto man handles them tonight in all areas!

Gallagher didn't want to fight and he didn't. Kostka wins something...blah

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on February 10, 2013 at 12:19 AM

Gallaher had better pick his spots better. He was way overmatched.

Posted by oytboy on February 13, 2013 at 09:53 AM

Looks like Montreal has found their version of Brad Marchand, minus the skill level. Clean win by Kostka and good on him for standing up for his team.

Posted by tflyer on February 09, 2013 at 10:15 PM

Two non fighters will give it to Kostka

Kostka...WIN F.ck Habs

Posted by bammer24 on February 10, 2013 at 02:16 PM

Gallagher got what he deserved his ass kicked.

Posted by samchoi168 on February 10, 2013 at 01:02 PM

Is time to let the loser take a lesson for do not play cheating game .Good job Kosstka !!!

Posted by flamesgoon on February 10, 2013 at 08:22 PM

stupid fight small guy v.s big guy gallagher is 5.6 or 5.7

Posted by BigBird on February 10, 2013 at 11:43 PM

The little guy doesn't back down, the guy with the 50 pound advantage wins the fight, wow, good on you Kotska. You're a man, go for Chara now, only a 50 pound diff!

Posted by chad420 on February 10, 2013 at 11:46 AM

win MK

Posted by Mounty in NC on February 10, 2013 at 09:03 AM

Gallagher got what he deserved. Just because you don't run over the goalie yourself doesn't mean you don't cause the goalie to get run over. Gallagher knew exactly what he was doing. And Kostka made him pay for it

Posted by partybarber on February 10, 2013 at 08:36 AM

Gallacher was schooled in every aspect of the game last night, Phaneuf had put him hard on the boards a number of times and then Kostka finished off the humiliation with this fight.

Posted by Behn Wilson on February 09, 2013 at 10:10 PM

A frustrated Gallagher sneakily succeeds in getting Kostka's helmet off early but he then lacks the ability to capitalize on it and eventually finds himself ice slammed by the larger Leaf
