Voros-Thompson Fight Breakdown

Greg Wyshyinski at Puck Daddy breaks down the Aaron Voros/Nate Thompson fight from last night's Ranger/Islander game. He also includes video...

"The first beautiful thing about this fight is that it takes place at the Nassau Coliseum during a New York Rangers/New York Islanders game, which means the crowd makes it sound like Round 8 of an Oscar de la Hoya/Manny Pacquiao fight. It's bedlam.

The other beautiful thing is that Aaron Voros and Nate Thompson were tossing bombs; even the ones that missed were rather awesome."

...bombs definitely thrown but not many landed. This will not go down as one of the better scraps in this rivalry. Unlike the Dan Cloutier beating of Tom Salo.

I'm all for fighting in the NHL. But that circumstance was just lame. Both teams were on the ice battling for the puck in the Isle's offensive zone for easily a hard minute. By the time the scrum broke out both teams were exhausted—if Voros and Thompson really wanted to fight, they would have...but the refs just stood there and were like, "C'mon guys, do something." Lame on the ref's part. See how tired they look?

yea they were. Boring fight and you could tell not really emotional. The bench was like whatever. Voros needs to go to speaking lessons.
