Video: Leafs’ Clarkson and Sabres’ Ott drop the gloves

Nov 16, 2013, 9:10 PM EDT

There was a bout of nastiness between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres during the second period of Saturday’s game.

Leafs’ forward David Clarkson and Sabres’ forward Steve Ott dropped the gloves early in the period, in a spirited scrap. Ott was able to get in the first real shot, taking Clarkson to the ice. But Clarkson got up before the linesman could break it up and the fight continued.

Clarkson, who had yet to score a goal as a member of the Maple Leafs, despite his seven-year, $36.75 million contract, eventually scored the final takedown near the benches.

    Kind of a lame fight. It looked like Ott went after Clarkson because Clarkson threw a clean hit on the Buff player. Ott threw a few quick punches and then held on.

    The Devils definitely miss David Clarkson – I have a feeling if the Leafs weren’t doing so well, his lack of production would be a huge story…hope he turns it around, he’s a great dude.
