John Scott fights Kevin Westgarth video

fight.jpgLOS ANGELES -- John Scott wanted to make sure his presence was felt. That would be his 6-foot-8, even-bigger-on-skates presence.

Scott played for the first time since Nov. 10 Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings with Fernando Pisani out with an upper-body injury.

In the second period, Scott was asked to fight by the Kings' Kevin Westgarth. The aftermath was a beat up and bloodied Westgarth, who is 6-4 and 228 pounds. Play was stopped afterward as Westgarth's blood was scrapped off the ice.

"It was a good fight," Scott said. "He wanted to get their team going. It happens. I got the better of him this time.

"He tried to hit me but couldn't reach me. I got long arms, kind of like a monkey-armed baboon swinging away."

It looked like Westgarth tried to tap out after a while, but Scott said that wasn't the case.

"I heard the ref saying stop, stop, stop, but he kept going, so I just kept throwing," he said.

Here's the fight:

Westgarth is an inexperienced fighter. It takes a a while and some practice to figure out how to grab a guy in a fight. I'm surprised, as most of the Hawks are punks. Sadly, without Byfuglien, they wont even make it out of the Western this year. And for sure the Kings need to get a tough guy. Westgarth is just a big guy, not a real fighter. Next time they play, I'm pretty sure the next time, when key players return, the Kings will brutalize the Hawks.

garagehero is an idiot.
