Reimer fell down in the crease like he was shot; Roussel was in the vicinity and his reputation preceded him. Yandle tried to play hero but he is no fighter so he embarrassingly bailed. The Panthers spent the next 30 minutes chasing after Roussel, with Haley the chief protagonist. Reimer suffered a groin injury and Roussel's fingerprints were nowhere to be found at the crime scene. But the poorly coached Panthers completely went off their game plan--whatever the hell it was in the first place--and as a result the Stars ran them off the ice.
Yandle's soliloquy: "Roussel you cad, I shall surely make you pay for this! Alas, I have erred. I will take my leave now, good day sir! Oh ye of the striped shirt, pray have mercy and hide me from this ruffian"
Refs must have missed it while Yandle was hiding behind them, but he should have gotten a Gross Misconduct penalty. 4.3 (b) A Gross Misconduct penalty shall be assessed any player or team official who conducts themselves in such a manner as to make a travesty of the game.
I gave this fight a 10 only due to the fact that Yandle running and hiding behind other players and then a linesmen was the funniest damn thing i have ever seen in a professional game. It reminded me of 90's sports movies.
Yikes...that is really embarrassing! Yandle doesn't turtle, he hikes up his skirt and hides behind a Zebra.
I don't think I've ever seen a hockey player instigate a fight and then literally run away and hide behind a linesman. Embarrassing.
Yandle is a tough guy cross-checking someone from behind and quickly shows how much of a pussy he is. Reimer is as soft as they come. He used to get concussions in Toronto from the breeze of a puck going by his head.
Yandle should NOT fight. That figure skating-like spin alone would've got him 10s on artistic impression, but in a fight it tells you that he has absolutely no business fighting...but to his credit he stood up for what he assumed to be a cheap shot on his goalie. Tanya Harding beats down Nancy Carrigan
Yandle loses his man card on that one. What a puss
Pathetic way to stand up for a fight. Cower and hide behind the officials to stop the bad man from hitting you. The people want Healey and Roussel. Yandle looked like a biotch! When danger reared its ugly head, He bravely turned his tail and fled. Yes brave Sir Yandle turned about and gallantly he chickened out. Bravely taking to his feet, he beat a very brave retreat. Bravest of the brave, Sir Yandle!
Fight ended with Yandle skating away like his life depended on it.
RUN AWAY!! RUN AWAY!! Utter Domination and demasculizatioj. Yandle belongs in co-ed no fight league after that display of estrogen
Yandle with the Monty Python "Run Away" strategy. I haven't seen that strategy work in a hockey fight yet.
Yandle you fucking pussy.
Yandel thought he could pretend to be tough and grab onto Roussel, but unfortunately for him, Rousesel took the opportunity to punch up a non fighter. No contest win for Roussel. 2
after some Eiffel Tower 'domination', Roussel skates off to the box w/Yandle's spine in tow... #21 FTW
Antoine was found guilty by prior reputation. Yandle tried to make him pay but, soon found out Roussel was out of his pay grade. What led after that was one of our most fun games of the season. 1 - 0 Stars.
Chickenshit Yandle going after Roussel who had nothing to do with the injury. Don't drop the gloves if you're going to run away...
Way to switch to the drunk cameraman above the net. The only way we know Rouselle actually won a fight was Yandy's gazelle like desperation.
Roussell wins this one easily but a pathetic fight... I give it a 3
Yandle you pussy
tko in 4
Roussel with the clear W but truth be told he didn't really do as much damage as he could have. Yandle running for dear life is quite comical. I half expected him to do a Kristy Yamaguchi-style jump near the end of the fight. Florida could be a much better team if they had a coach that knew his ass from his elbow.
Yandle runs away like a little girl. How embarrassing, particularly when Roussel did not touch the goalie.
Who voted draw? Do you hate the Stars or just Roussel? Don't let your hate cloud your judgement, do the right thing and change your vote to reflect what LITERALLY happened. Yandle had instant buyer's regret, Roussel cashed that check anyway.
Losing to Roussel....that's a whole bunch of shame right there.
Not very often you actually see a player run away or say skate away from his opponent when fighting such as Yandle did here!
Yandle ran away! Lol. Win Frenchy.
Roussel did nothing but beat the panties off of Yandle. Yandle deserves the humiliation that goes along with the girlie effort. Did anyone actually see Yandle sucking his thumb in the penalty box or is that just a rumor? No doubt winner is Frenchy, no doubt loser is Yandle for acting like a Frenchman.
Decided to be a touch guy got his asskicked and ran away as fast as he should to hide behind a Ref
I can understand thinking Roussel had something to do with it but he is clear and won the fight
