Brent Johnson knocks out Rick Dipietro

41 posts in this topic

seconds left in the third period....Matt Cooke inadvertently runs into Dipietro who is way out of his crease....huge scuffle ensues between the teams...Dipietro challenges Johnson to a mano a mano goalie fight...Johnson knocks out Dipietro in one punch...and I mean drops him like a sack of potatoes.

I obviously don't have video because this just happened but everyone has to see this to believe it.

If only Chris Tucker was the game commentator...

haha this post came up as fast as he went down

Dipietro could have really got hurt on the way down if he didn't land on a pile of cash in his back pocket. Zing! lol

Ladies and gentlemen I give you the last 20 years of New York Islanders hockey in a nutshell.

that was sorta like Zajac vs. Girardi.

and Cooke didn't run into him, DP pretty much took him out, I guess that's what started Johnson's march towards the other net.

I can't wait to see the video, even if it was a short fight, I love goalie fights. Though for his own sake, DiPietro should really shy away from fighting given his injury history.

He probably broke, well, everything. Somewhere Ron Hextall is embarrassed for him.

Awe -- that was good clean fun! I was afraid it was something traumatic.

:doh1: yeesh... What the hell was DiPietro thinking falling like that? Where is his pride? His dignity... it's true -- the cash broke his fall. <_<

Insult to injury....or is it the other way around?

seeing as how he tried to take out cooke, it's karma and being an uber pansy.

That was the best five minutes of an Islanders game I've ever seen. So glad I happened to turn the TV on right before that happened. Seems like whenever I catch an Islanders game with Dipietro in the net he's trying to fight someone. Not sure why he thinks he should or can fight. Maybe Brent Johnson set him straight.

He didn't play the full 60. Fleury played the last 16 seconds or so.

Nice! What comes around goes around for Matt Cooke. He is a POS and got what he deserved. Too bad DiPietro does not know how to fight. Nice left hook by Johnson to KO DiPietro. DP seems like he is always getting hurt and can't stay healthy. It is almost the same punch Staal hit Prust with last night in the Penguins/Rangers game.

Cooke barely got bumped into by Rick, then turtled in the corner while others shoved. I think he "got what he deserved" is overstating it a bit. He "got what he deserved" when Evander Kane knocked him out cold last season.

Also, how is that anything like the Jordan Staal punch? Staal punched an unsuspecting players with gloves on... Johnson punched Dipietro with no gloves during a clean fight. Other than both being thrown with the left hand, I really see no similarities at all.

To the bolded. I'm not too sure Johnson's punch was similar to Staal's. Staal's punch was like a tap IMO, but Prust went down like a sack of $hit trying to draw a penalty (which he got) the funny thing about Prust's dive was that his head flipped in the same direction that Staal's "punch" came from :blink: THAT'S how we know he embellished Staal's "punch" :doh1: When someone gets clocked, the natural reaction is for your head to spin in the direction the punch is going to, not where the punch is coming from :rolleyes: look at a youtube highlight, you'll see his head goes the wrong way after the "punch".

Staal's hit reminds me of the way Bertuzzi hit Moore, not a powerful hit and certainly nowhere near enough to cause the reaction it got, then Moore dropped like a sack of $hit... and the rest is history.

Matt Cooke will get his one day, all cheapshots do in the end, see Moore,Steve.

I'm pretty sure Prust was turning his head in that direction before he got hit with the punch, which made the impact worse because he turned right into it. As for the Bertuzzi incident, Moore fell because he was obviously sucker punched and then Bertuzzi tripped over his own stick and fell forward into Moore, landing on top of him.
