Win Konopka. Nice fight. It is good to see Brown pick up were Orr left off. Wilson thinks Brown is a better fighter than Orr. Shoot me.

Just in case you hate NHL ads.

Draw.

Very nice to see Konopka actually throw some punches (he likely threw 5 times as many in this fight then he did all season long up to this point).

Was shocked to see Konopka actually throw em and not try and hug it out. Probably surprised Brown a bit. Either way I think it's draw but maybe that's just me.

Good tilt!
Konopka landed a few beauties midway through the fight when Brown turtled up

Konopka finally fights. He can really throw too, weird that he has been cautious basically all year.

Browner hung in there and threw some bombs back. This is the fights that the battle of Ontario need.

Good scrap.

Both were throwing bombs. Awesome to see Konopka forget the bear hug routine, for 1 fight at least. I'd also call it a draw.

Very happy to see Konopka throw 'em. Good effort by Brown, too.

Close one but I'd give Zenon the victory great tilt from both though.

I'm amused that NHL.com has fight videos. I bet they get more traffic than anything else in their archive.

Nice fight. Maybe Konopka will throw a little more now that he had that fight.

The league needs more Mike Browns, like 29 of them. Konopka actually put on a show instead of hugging it out.

These two are developing a nice rivalry, 2nd time they've fought this year, and I think they fought last year too when Konopka was on the Island. I'd give Konopka the win here, but it was a good tilt, not a beatdown or anything. Brown vs. Konopka could become the middleweight version of Orr vs. Carkner!

More like he thinks Brown is a better PLAYER than Orr, which is 100% true. Brown wins as many as he loses against solid middleweights, certainly not a dominant fighter, but his fights are always entertaining, and he brings a lot to the table when it comes to defense, speed, physicality, etc. If Brown didn't fight he'd still be a good 4th liner, if Orr didn't fight he'd be absolutely useless.

I don't see how you can declare a winner in that one. Great fight. Here's to the battle of Ontario.

konopka usually just clutches and grabs in his fights without landing many punches, this brown fight was his best fight of the year so far, hopefully he does more of that instead of a grapple fest he normally does

NHL needs more guys like Brown and Konopka. Heart and soul guys are good for the game.

Is it just me or does most of Brown's punches seem to be pillows? I know he knocked down TKO earlier this year but everyone gets him, but it seems Brown's punches don't really faze or hurt the other game that much.
