The Milwaukee Admirals season is over which means the start of end-season material here at Admirals Roundtable. This week will be “Best Of” Week which will cover: Best Fight, Best Hit, Best Save, Best Goal, and Best Game. As always, I encourage everyone time chime in and get their say or recommendations in via the comment section. Considering the fight pool this season was pretty cut and dry. I’ll take this first one head on.
There wasn’t a more jaw dropping fight this season than the moment Jamie Devane knocked out Daniel Maggio. It may not have been the fight itself that made it the top scrap of the season as much as the uppercut finish. There haven’t been many legit KO’s that I can remember in recent Admirals history. Devane provided one that will be hard to forget.
Before going anywhere else, because it is worth talking about, Maggio was clearly hurt from this fight. He was knocked out cold, staggered back, and needed assistance to get off the ice. He would miss the next five-games for the San Antonio Rampage but did carry on with the rest of the season. Actually, he wound up taking eight more fighting majors by the end of the season. So, all is well in Maggio-land.
