Other Penalties: Zack Kassian received a roughing and misconduct; Tom Sestito and Daniel Carcillo each received a misconduct.
Not sure about letting Carcillo "off his leash." He did what he always did in Chicago: run his mouth, and avoid an altercation. Good riddance to him.
Dislike rears its ugly head! Nolan punching with bad intent. I enjoyed Drew Doughty pushing a bit and then realizing that Tostitos was looking to pound him, leading to Doughty to put his tail between his legs and try to scurry away
cant say I agree w/the quips of Nolan 'ducking' anyone, or picking his spots,..seemed the pile had already started w/he and Stanton on the perimeter, ... anyhizzle, Nolan again loads up with both hands to which the Canuck couldn't answer..no shame in Stantons effort, he just tangled w/a guy who knew something was gonna break out and outgunned him. good hard punches thrown by both dudes, but the Native blood gets the W...
I don't know about you guys, but I've seen about enough of this Nolan dodging fights and coming in behind his visor (and don't try and pretend like it's the new rules, because he was grandfathered in) for my liking. What kind of enforcer ducks Sestito - Sestito for fuck's sake - and then dodges Kassian to get at Stanton who we're told can hold his own? Are you kidding me? This kid is a disgrace to the Nolan name. Just a total embarrassment for all concerned. Sad.
If Nolan didnt fall he would have whooped him worse. Jordan is doing a great job for LA this year
Nolan lands the better shots before falling down.
Winner Nolan in this lets dance around all the equipment fight.
Stanton went after Nolan. Nolan delivered.
I was just happy to hear the Sex Pistol's in the backround, Most arena music is BORING !!!
unfortunately for stanton he was paired with nolan...win nolan
All those a-holes on the ice at the same time, something happening was inevitable....
Nolan bests Stanton.
NOLAN NOLAN NOLAN.....KEEP THOSE DOGGIES ROLLING.....SUNG TO THE TUNE OF RAWHIDE EEEEYHAWWWW Nolan with the victory here ........doesn't look like his first rodeo thar pardnar
I'll give the Win to Nolan but props to Stanton as well for not taking it further when Nolan tripped. Funny how tough Kassian was acting when his buddies were lined up with him...
Nolan with better punches and the win!
Nolan connected early on, missed a few, then landed a couple of haymakers to bloody Stanton. Easy victory for Nolan.
Not a bad tilt - Nolan lands a few bombs. Stanton shows some class not hitting Nolan when he falls at the end
Haha nolan runs from the 2 guys actually in his weight class (sestito/Kassian) and takes on the much smaller but equally tough Stanton and still doesn't win lol good fight from both guys. Stanton takes a few but the helmet does all the damage so with him landing the last few punches and taking nolan down I gave the fight to him. Especially with what he was up against Nolan should have been able to do a lot better. Remember this isn't boxing, no score card here just a brawl that ends with Nolan on his arse. Win Stanton but it was very close.
Too Bad the camera covrage sucked...looked like a good fight. Nolan looks to have won.
Interesting Bieska observation by Majik317 as Nolan gets a dance partner he likes... and despite an admirable effort by Stanton (followed by a serious face slam)... "Son of a Ted" eventually manages to awkwardly punch his way to a victory over the out-gunned (but by less than expected) Canuck
Watch Bieksa grab Mitchell right away. Old buddy knew he wouldnt fight and the pick your spot king keeps his title and lets Stanton get bloodied by Nolan. Props to Stanton, he's got too much class to be on this team.
Nolan landed bombs even when he was blinded by the sweater over his head. Easy call for Nolan. 12.2 percent-ers in denial about this bout and probably in denial about Crynucks' mediocre performance this season.
Nolan. That's all I got.
Nolan kicks the crap out of Stanton after so-called Nuck tough guys give him a miss. Feel bad for Stanton who seems like a decent type and obviously hasn't been in Vancouver long enough for terminal douchebag/chickenshititis to set in...hopefully the young man will be traded before his life is destroyed.
Nolan controlled that fight from start to finish. He looked a bit wild, but he was swinging for the fences. Always nice to see a Canuck leaking blood at the end of a fight.
Nolan with the easy victory. Active, throwing big shots and landed enough to score the win. Should have kept his balance though.
Ted's son defeated Stanton Island..
Nolan wins and bloodies Stanton.
Even though he actually had more punches hit him than he threw, stanton had to get a 10 for not throwing a dozen punches on Nolan when he was down - damn good job, sir
NHL's dirtiest player at it again. Cheap shot, doesn't accept offer from Kassian then tussles with Stanton, who could have lit Nolan up while he was down....but didn't.
Nolan is a dirty scum bag cheap shot artist. He should play for the Bruins. Nuff said.
sick of the Vancouver bias. Can't you realize Stanton picked the wrong king to fight. He went for stiches like the rest of the diving, whining, sucks.
To quote the late great Gorilla Monsoon...'"What a Donnybrook Jesse!".....draw
Sestito, Carcillo and Kassian might be considered the antithesis of any kind of braintrust.......I wish any one of them had the charisma of Jay Miller or Knuckles Nilan.
knuckles, you seriously believe Stanton won? your boy got beaten and bloodied. stop being in denial and come out of the closet.
all nolan the whole time. teams winning 1-0 im sure sutter didnt want anyone giving vancouver a chance to get back in it. and when nolan gets grabbed from behind, knowing his the #1 target . i wouldnt hesitate to drop the gloves either bc yu dont know who has you and its punch or be punched. props to stanton. knuckles 88 yu sound stupider then lebron james's championship speech
What the hell was this?!? Nolan, who can't fight, actually bullies Stanton, who really can't fight....
Doughty is such a pussy. Turtles like a little B. Nolan wouldn't fight any of the big boys so tried to take on a much smaller player. Another LA Kings pussy.
Very glad to see that Carbomb is off the leash that Q puts every tough guy on in Chicago. As for the fight.. all Nolan. Stanton is a tough kid and a great defenseman, wish he woulda stuck around Chicago.
