Brady Tkachuk Folds Jake Muzzin Like A Chair [Fight]

brady tkachuk senators nhl fight

Jake Muzzin was folded like a lawn chair after stepping in for Frederik Andersen to fight Brady Tkachuk during the Senators explosive, come-from-behind win over the Maple Leafs.

With 13:33 left to play in the second period, Tkachuk was battling Andersen with a stuff attempt and then stripped Andersen when he tried to cover the puck. When they were down Andersen's mask was knocked off and Muzzin started hitting Tkachuk. But Andersen came over and tried to give Tkachuk a blocker shot, but instead he let Muzzin fight this one, as he should.

Muzzin, for some reason, doesn't throw a punch and does a face-wash on Tkachuk. Tkachuk answers back with a hard right that folds Muzzin, then gives him another hard right as he is falling to the the ice. 

The look on Andersen's face, as Muzzin is folded down onto the ice, says it all; 'Muzz, sorry'. Brady Tkachuk walked away as the clear winner and lit the fuse on what would be the, come-from-behind, win of the year.

During the first two periods the Maple Leafs built up a solid 5-1 lead that should have guarnteed victory over the Sens. However,  the Senators scored with 00:09 seconds left in the second period after Nick Paul scored shorthanded, off a rebound, from Austin Watson's shot making it 5-2.

After that the tide turned drastically.

00:41 seconds into the third period, Artyom Zub jumped out of the penalty box took a pass from Connor Brown and went triple deke, Mighty Ducks style, to slide the puck past Andersen for his first career NHL goal; 5-3.

Connor Brown then potted one at 5:52  to put the Sens within one, making it 5-4. Brown hit a slapper off a tic-tac-toe  play with Colin White and Thomas Chabot. 

Evgenii Dadonov tied the game with 2:02 left in the third. Dadonov drilled it home after a tip from Brady Tkachuk put it right on his stick.

The Maple Leafs couldn't regain the lead in those final seconds and away they went to OT.

Evgenii Dadonov came up clutch burying the overtime winner on a breakaway at the 2:42 mark in OT.

The Senators came back and beat the Maple Leafs 6-5 in one of the wildest upsets of the year.
