I am not sure if he won, but kudos to Carter for taking on a guy that is used to fighting. He actually looked like he knew what he was doing. Who is that announcer. A shoulder to shoulder to hit is a cheap shot? The guy is about 5 foot nothing and did no damage what so ever, that announcer should be doing figure skating.
"It's not like Giroux is gonna hit anybody..."
Ummmm, he just did, about 20 seconds before you said that you moron. And stop crying about the hit, it was clean. What, you're winning by a few goals so you should stop playing hockey? Right. Get the **** outta here you old piece of ****.
Cheap shot? How does a Canadian team find an announcer who's never seen a hockey game before? Ask Tyler Kennedy if Giroux doesn't hit anyone...
That said, Winchester wants to fight, so he grabs the first non-fighter he can find. Carter acquits himself, even has Winchester doing the "don't hit me" wave when he gets his right arm free, but doesn't land anything.
As someone who attended the game right behind the Ottawa bench, I can tell you that Giroux and other players on both teams were aiming for big hits the entire game. Watching his young career, Giroux hits often throughout the course of most games. These announcers blow and I'm sure true Canadien hockey fans are a little ashamed of having such a cry baby color commentator.
