Stanton lands the only punches and gets the W.
He can thank his lucky stars it wasn't Bieska. I don't know what started it, but Desjardins probably won't do that again. Dumb fight, but clearly Stanton took him out.
Snow shower, come on how old are you 16? Deserved every punch, next time think twice before disrespecting goalies.
Stanton not a fan of the show-shower on Bobby-Lou, so off came the mitts and the face punching commenced. Win to the Canuck.
Can't give the win to Stanton when his teammate helped pushed Desjardins over so he was at a disadvantage at the start. Once Desjardins got himself upright, it was a draw.
Canucks were looking for a reason to fight after getting scored on, and used the lame snowspray as an excuse. Cheap fight.
Looks like Stanton would have pummelled Desjardins if the ref didn't step in. Win Stanton
Stanton put the hammer down on Desjardins. Pretty entertaining 30 seconds if you ask me.
The fact that the Canucks actually won a fight, regardless of tactics, is much more interesting than this outcome. Stanton and a 3. BTW, one of the worst fight nights in a while. Filled with nothing but snoozers.
This wasn't a fight, it was a mugging no doubt, but if you have to declare a winner in who dominated, then it's Stanton. If it is about who won in an equal fight, don't know, there was no equal ability to fight here
Stanton, next time don't have your buddy help you out and make it a more even match from the start. I think it would be a slightly different story if that was the case. I don't expect anything differently from the Canucks!
Another example of how the cheap shot taking Nucks go about their "tough guy" stuff. He totally jumped Desjardins and Bieksa was there as well so it was not really a fair fight and one that was more two on one from jump. Weak sauce again from the most talented yet hated team North of the border.
I wish the video from the 70's and 80's was better. They knew how to fight back then
Nothing fight, sharks need someone to replace Clowe, too many non fighters, afraid teams will really start pushing them around.
Win Stanton......that's about as much snow Vancouver sees in a year.......I'll bet that Desjardins was plenty surprised when he got hit by the snowplow....L.O.L....
Stanton jumps Desjardins for nothing and sucker punches him...guess he wins. How many Canucks does it take to start a hockey fight? TWO! One to find a guy small enough and hold him while the other guy gets ready to go.
Did a Canuck just win a fight? Got to give them credit, playing with a ton more grit this year.
Glad to see Desjardins made to answer for his BS. Headhunting POS
No call on the snow shower? Stanton and Bieksa skate in to explain hockey etiquette. Clearly upset, Desjardins demitts but gets a licking by Ryan Stanton in his first NHL fight. A sloppy, one-sided affair with Ryan Stanton controlling the entire time. WIN = STANTON
Commentators were idiots but that was a good beating Stanton put on desjardins who did spray ice in Lu's face and should have gotten the extra 2 for unsportsmanlike conduct. People don't think desjardins lost cuz bieksa pushed him, Stanton pulled him back up and let him get set before using him as a punching bag. Stanton is very strong and a bit bigger than Andrew is, wouldn't have been close no matter what. Bieksa wanted in there but he settled for one punching wingels at the end of the game instead haha Anyways win Stanton
For once a good call by the refs in not giving the unsportsmanlike for the snow shower, and not giving the instigator for Stanton explaining, as Bloodbank put it, "hockey etiquette" to that guy who spends a lot of time tending to his flowers. I'm admittedly a canucks fan, so no comment on what some users are describing as a New Dehli-style gang-rape on a poor innocent Shark. If you want to see a fine example of what is being described here by some, check out the canucks/rangers from November '09, where Dane Byers, some mook named Aaron Voros, and about 43 other rangers all tried to rip Ryan Kesler limb from limb
Fellows, a fight is supposed to be one guy against one guy. Stanton should have either stepped out of the way to let Bieksa handle things or given Desjardins a better chance to defend himself
Double instigator if I ever saw one Lame in so many ways I'm gong to take a pass
This was not a fight but rather a rape!Stanton does not even let Desjardins to get his gloves off.If you think your tough square off and see what happens.Stanton would be better serviced in jail !
I hope they fight again cuz Desjardins actually knows how too... He didnt even spray luongo barely and then gets double teamed and thrown and stanton starts hitting him after bieska helps push desjardins yeah totally stanton won.. no thats retarded draw and hope they fight again Desjardins will put him down.
2 on 1 mugging = Draw
2 canucks jumped desjardins and then stanton probably landed 1 with desjardins jersey over his head.not enough to earn him a win in my book considering the head start
