Stupid to potentially suffer a concussion in your final game. I get it if someone is running around, but if it's a planned fight it's definitely not worth the risk of injuring yourself at the start of the offseason.

Neither guy is going to be in the NHL this year, so why wouldn't they do it?

Why do people keep saying this about Scott? Has he announced his retirement or something? Of course he will be in the NHL next year. Hopefully with the Sabres.

Justin Johnson has been a career minor leaguer (he is 32).

How generous of the goon to lend his fellow goon a helping hand.

Shame he got buckled for his efforts.

Funny seeing the Isles' coach's reaction. And to see Scott trying to intimidate the guy during warmup. There's justice in this World.

That's John Scott. The guy love doing this **** and he rarely lose. I don't think he expected to get machine gunned in the face and KTFO by a much smaller guy to begin with.

That was badass by Johnson

Wow.

Johnson throws with POWER. He throws a lot like Reaves and Lucic in that sense, only needs a couple to put you out.

We had 11 rookies in the lineup, but you pick 2 goons to represent all the call ups.

Strome, Nelson, Lee and de Haan were winning us games but the Gallant and Johnson take all the glory I guess. Hey, this is the Hockey Fights forum right?

Anyway, great showings for both Gallant and Johnson, made their mark in the NHL, even if it was only for a handful of games it will be very memorable for them. I think Gallant might have a future as a fighter but this was likely Johnson's one chance and he made something of it!

This is such a misinformed post, it's just flat out wrong. We've been dressing something like 11 rookies every night basically since the Olympics. The Islanders also give these career AHL goon type guys an NHL game or so down the stretch as a thank you for the battling they do for the youngsters in Bridgeport. Guys like Gallant and Johnson, who are very popular, get their shot in the spotlight in the NHL and some good money in their pocket.

I like when the Islanders do it, keeps morale up during a meaningless run of games. Butch Goring talked about Johnson coming to watch Gallant's first game for the Islanders and even though he was invited to the players lounge he refused to go in because he said he wasn't a player and didn't deserve it, even though every Islander had played with him at some point in the AHL. That night Sundstrom got concussed and Johnson was called up to the NHL for the 1st time as a 32 year old so he got to go into the players lounge as a player, good for him.

Tough nuts Gallant and Johnson.

In a fists of fury type.fight, the much shorter guy usually has the advantage over the taller guy. Scott has to fight smarter than that.

More like KTFD. That was one of the better TKO's I've seen in a hockey fight though.

Scott trying to intimidate during warmups? I'm sorry, but that's a little out to lunch. I guarantee this was the conversation:

Johnson: "Hey man, big fan. Can I get a shot tonight?"
Scott: "Sure. I know where you're coming from. I spent a lot of nights on the buses until a few guys gave me my shot. But let's do it right away before the game gets going."
Johnson: "Thanks man. First shift."
Scott: "Good luck."

Hi guys,

I am European .. and don't understand the meaning of such prearranged fights.

could someone explain me what they had to win ?

I understand Johnson, 2 games in NHL, wants to show he has punch and could be NHL goone ! (at least part time or call up) but is their something else at stake ? or is this the only reason ?

(i seldom saw i fight with so little hate !)
tks

They were auditioning for jobs for next year- both needed a chance to show what they can do so they helped each other out.

Wow, that's pretty embarrassing for Scott to get so cleanly destroyed by a player so much smaller than him. He's not exactly a great fighter though. He's just so damned big.

Scott may not play another game for the Sabres will always be remembered by Buffalo fans as the guy that made Scott Thornton forget who he was for about 60 minutes.
