After John Erskine took a couple swings at Toronto Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf during a fracas early in the second period, Leafs’ fifth-line enforcer Colton Orr challenged Big John to a little do-si-do to stick up for his teammate.


The heavyweights traded some massive blows, but Erskine asserted dominance, landing the decisive punch– a haymaker that caught Orr in the side of the head.

Here’s the full video of the fight.

The Leafs are gonna have to learn how to hockey eventually.

    Who was leaning over the boards and slapping it instead of his stick?

    It’s kinda hard to tell but looks like Alzner. I thought I saw a 27.

    I would like to report another #AlzyCelly from last nights game after this fight. You can see it on that youtube-video @ 44 second mark.

  • Is that elbow pads flying mid-air in the photo?

    Normally, I think fighting is dumb as far as ‘momentum’ is concerned, but when it comes to Colton Orr I’d like to see nothing more than him KTFO on the ice.

    Excellent fight erskine, now since you have made your contribution for the season, kindly take a seat next to Erat in the suite and let someone who can play defense take your place. In an unrelated note, get well Jack Hillen

    Russian Machine,
    You’ve got to make an Erskine shirt that says “Here comes the jackhammers!”
