Other Penalties: Richardson received a crosschecking.
LA sucks !
Didn't really get to see this whole fight, but good for Selanne... The one guy on this ducks team that has class, so it takes a lot to piss him off... As for Richardson, you're a turd... Last fight was against Dan Boyle, this one was against Selanne... Goes after the non-fighters
You don't see this happen very often, Selanne getting in a fight. I gave it a draw because I couldn't see a clear edge for either guy.
draw...nice job Teemu
Wow... surprised to see Selanne actually drop the gloves. He picked the right guy. Richardson seldom fights. DRAW.
HA! Kings suck big D---! Youre getting swept by San Jose! Sharks fans bring the brooms to staples. Kings a the dirtbags of the league along with their fans. Your team has never done anything and never will. Prime candidate for contraction. I don't think Jim Fox was biased as he usually is. He can be an idiot at times with Bob Miller but the seemed partial in this one.
Seemed like a, seriously, chippy game, and In the midst of a whole lot of players, consecutively, sticking up for each other... the furious Finn, impressively, chooses to fight his own battles, and, surprisingly, comes out of it, none the worse for wear.
The Kings woke a sleeping giant by pulling that stunt and it's one that they're going to regret later on during the playoffs. The already started the fall by losing the home cede to the Ducks who came out of nowhere. Both Richardson and Clifford have a lot to learn, a lot.
This was a hugfest between two non-fighters. Brad Richardson has a serious deficiency of lead in his ass; Timid Sowhiney has no business with his gloves off.
How can you not love Teemu?
Selanne handled himself well. Good to see the Hall of Famer stand up for himself. Richardson broke the code. You don't go after a 40 year old Hall of Famer who has never been in a fight in his life. Show some respect Brad, you are barely a capable grinder in the NHL.
I would like to believe that Selanne won this but judging by what we see on video this looks like a draw!
Can't see much, but Selanne is awesome.
how about the dinosaur giving it a go with the young gun brad richadson! A battle of the ages going the distance for a endingless three second brawl. love the tude by both, draw and a 4
props to Selanne for dropping the gloves. bad camera angle and no replay. Draw
too bad i didnt see the whole fight..i like angry non-fighters and this fight looked entertaining to me...draw and gave it 6
When did the job of announcer become prositute for the home team. Loser Richardson, in every sense of the word.
Selanne wins because anyone who takes on Teemu is a chump. If you can't fight anyone other than a 40 year old Finnish non-fighter, you're pathetic. Good for Selanne just for having one under his belt before his career ends.
Richardson is a punk who lost to a 40 year old european goal scorer.
Teemu was bleeding on his cheek from the original crosscheck he took. The fight was hard to determine because of bad camera angles. Teemu connected with one, and I bet Richardson got one in, so Draw in my book
Can't see enough to call a winner, but Selanne is simply awesome. Loving this Ducks of Burke team coming back. Score and beat everyone up, they are on frigging fire and are very scary right now.
teemu gets the win here.
Selanne gets the unaminous decision and huge respect for dropping the mitts at 40!! Anaheim is going to roll through the first round
Nice end of the season.. This fight will make the Ducks come out strong.. Mark my words...
I'll give it to Selanne but a close one. And we thought the Ducks needed GP!
Crazy he never dropped them before
OK, let's see if I got this right. Less than four minutes left in the game puck on the side boards a first ballot Hall of Famer protecting the puck when a journeyman center decides to go headhunting. Pretty classless way to get in the NHL history books. Win to Selanne for simply putting up with the punk.
Garry Howatt? No. Stan Jonathan? No. Teemu Selanne the first fighting major of his 20 year career!! It's been that kind of year. The west will be interesting; have to like the Sharks but they usualy find a way to lose, we know the Canucks will come up short and Detroit doesn't have that swagger this year. I think a finalist comes from one of the other 5; hope it's my Yotes, but the Ducks sure look good.
Didn't really see enough to call it more than a draw...gave it to Selanne just because I like to see the Euro-weenies stick up for themselves.
Shitty camera work = draw but honestly they caught the bloody face other fight so got to give them credit for that. heh, this fight instantly put the image of the old man on the city bus beating the snot outa that other guy in my head.
The Ducks feed video showed the fight from a better angle, I did see Teemu land a good punch. Really dislike how biased Fox and Miller, Johnson's hit could have been called a boarding call or a cross check, uncalled for for Richardson to go after someone who isn't a fighter. Meh what matters is Anaheim got a better position in the playoffs.
Richardson is classless pulling a stunt like that against a player like Selanne. I wish Selanne would have destroyed him, but either way Selanne won the bout clean against a guy 14 years younger. How Johnson gets out of it all without even a penalty is beyond me. The guy should be embarrassed of himself for that gutless crosscheck.
Teemu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Richardson and Kings ASSHOLES!!
Selanne Win!!! Richardson sucks. And at same time Clifford got what he needed, i was hoping KO but bloody face is OK for him
Wow, just wow. Awesome!
billyjack: LMAO. Selanne twice Richardsonä's size? Fuck you. Selanne is 6'0 200 at max and Richardson is 5'11 185, not ahuge difference and Brad 15 years younger, so fuck you. Selanne could be a decent fighter if he did this more, but he is more useful in scoring loads of goals for the team.
Who knew " The Finnish Flash" could kick some [email protected]#! I've never seen Teemu get so incensed, but good for him. The Ducks are 'team tough" down to every man, whether it's Parros, or Getz, Pears, and now Selanne. Richardson is a total dirt-bag for going after a 40 yr old scoring machine, 1st ballot future Hall of Famer.
Jim Fox quickly blames this situation on a shoulder by Teemu Selanne... Because that hit to the back of Teemu's head by Richardson's stick, which knocked Teemu's helmet off his head clearly wasn't the cause of all this ruckus... Nice.
I was randomly looking through Teemu's career stats and realized that he had an odd number of PIMs during 2010-11, so I knew I had to track down a TEEMU FIGHT. Fun watching Clifford get completely housed and then having that segue into Teemu getting into a scrap. This wasn't the best fight, but the fact that Selanne is involved automatically makes it better than average. TEEMU FOREVER.
Selanne clearly does not want to fight. Love the guy, but not enough to invent a fight that just isn't there and a result that is clearly not.
BILLY JACK you just showed us all how little you really know about the sport of Hockey. Also you need to check your stats "selanne towers over him" Selanne 6'0" Richardson 5'11" "selanne at 40 dropping the gloves against a a guy half his size" So did you think that Teemu is 11'10" tall or did you think Richardson is 3'0" tall "now every kid is calling him awesome for holding on to little richardson" Well what can I say to this awesome statement..... Maybe they are calling him awesome because he is a future HOFer and has contributed so much to the game of hockey both on and off the ice. I usually dont even respond to a stupid statement like this.... but you have no knowledge of the game if you think that the only "Man were is your fighting spirit" has to do with dropping the gloves you are a moron.
The camera did not show what happened, Selane took the shots and missed on all of his, not much of a fight but Richardson won this one.
Gotta Give it to Richardson.
Im still waiting for Teemu's career ending neck injury...
STarted out weird but ended up good. Draw though.
why was Richardson still on the ice?
Draw. All the Duck homers are blinded because TS drops the gloves, but it is still a draw.
Richardson and Matt Cooke are from Belleville. That town should be nuked for producing the biggest assholes and cowards in the world. Easy win for Teemu.
Wouldn't normally call a winner with the lack of camera work...but giving Selanne the win. Props to the old guy for keeping the puck in the corner despite all the dirty work on him...then finishing his own battle by dropping them...
Selanne's a killer!!!
Wow, Selanne not only fights, wins. the slo mo at the very end of this clip shows him connecting on a right. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KI1lvMzjESo The Kings are really a bunch of classless punks. Glad they got spanked this weekend.
i hate the ducks being a east coast transplant and following the kings the past several years, but good on selanne. took him 40 years to stand up for himself...damn clifford got bonked...bonked good.
@billy jack... Selanne dropped gloves because Richardson pucnhed in the back of the head during the play (after Johnson cross-checked and boarded him). If he isn't a killer, then the chump shouldn't try pulling crap like that.
Teemu is the GOAT
Teemu, the first ballot hall of famer, dropping his mits for the first time at age 40... he could have left on a stretcher and I'd still give him the W!
selanne being much bigger but shows why he never fought,because he doesnt have the stones,he just hung on to the much smaller richardson.PS:you guys act like richardsons a killer ,hes 5'10 180lbs.selanne towers over him yet just hung on,selanne at 40 dropping the gloves against a a guy half his size and you peg him a hero.hell if selanne is so tough he could of fought guys his size and age years ago.But he had guys do that for him.I cant understand how you could be 40 and never dropped the gloves.Man were is your fighting spirit.now every kid is calling him awesome for holding on to little richardson lol.PS:flanogon im sorry i said twice the size,but richardson aint 5;11 no matter what the stats say,are the stats correct that say tootoo is 5:10 lol.Hey pronger still wants a go with, salanne that could be good right.
