Other Penalties: Nicklas Backstrom receives an interference minor.
More punches landed by tkachuk, couple solid ones. Orpik definitely gets some of his own in but edge to tkachuk.
Fairly even for the most part. Tka prob got a few more shots in but Orpik got better quality punches. Edge to Orpik
I liked the whole sequence. Flames are fun to watch. Wish Smitty would have skated down the ice to engage Holtby, goalie fight... Draw...
Flames need to get Peluso up and put him on that 4th line, hell he can replace Neil on the 3rd line 2 goals wow
Tkachuk is a POD
Orpik looked like he was having fun...gotta give it to him.
Draw effort was there nothing landed. Backstrom and Wilson will prolly end up with NHLDPS meetings. Backstrom with a dirty late hit and Wilson with the body slam and punching.
Too close to call IMO. Draw.
Both landed a couple, no real damage, but slight edge to Orpik. I’ll bet whoever that was that Wilson bodyslammed after the fight won’t mess with Holtby again.
Tkachuk at first but then Orpick touched him with a couple decent ones. Old guy ftw.
good tilt thought Tkachuk landed the better shots early on
How do you vote for Orpik when he doesn't even land a punch. Not much happening but Tkachuk does land a couple and gets the win. Anyone else notice Wilson grabbing a player from behind and knocking him down then throwing punches?? Doing what he does best. HOW can anyone actually like the thugs from the Caps??? Tkachuk and a 3.
This fight occurred because of a huge crosscheck that Orpik laid on Tkachuk a few seconds earlier in the shift as they were jostling for position. Tkachuk was being his usual pest, and Orpik blasted him from behind. I knew at the final whistle they'd find each other again. Great hit by Backstrom to get it all going. I was hoping Wilson would find Tkachuk and drop the gloves with him, Orpik is a limited fighter but he's game!
Always a fan of a Capitals player eating a fist. They are such a punk team....
How anyone could think Orpik won this weak fight is a joke. Chucky for sure
i'm just here because it was hilarious watching tkachuk talk shit and then run from tom wilson all night and then go after the oldest man on the ice
Orpik is the king of cheap shots and chooses to fight another notorious cheapie artist Tkaczuk. Both try to fight but realize their diminishing roles in their teams and just agree that they both suck. Caps win game. Orpik looks for more superstars to injure next game as this one isn’t worth his efforts.
I love the Tkachuck clan, but he gets dinged a couple points for not removing his helmet when he decided to fight a 40 year old. Batya gets a bonus point for having to punch around a face shield.
Tkachuk is definitely not his dad, but he is a better fighter than Orpik. I was waiting for Orpik to go unconscious.
