A fight can be good if it's two crappy fighter who are trying. But, a fight sucks when there are 2 crappy fighters and only one is trying. Pettinger turtled like a bitch. If you're going to drop the gloves, you might have to take a punch. But, you'll also have a chance to give one too.
If you're looking at the number of punches thrown, it would be a clear win for Getzlaf. But seeing as how he missed on most of them, I don't know if I can really give it to him, so I'm calling it a draw.
Though Getzlaf threw more punches and was the obvious aggressor, I had to tag him as the overall loser. Getzlaf, the Ducks' leading scorer, had to spend five minutes of a tied game in the penalty box (in the third period), along with Pettinger, who had four points this season. The Lightning scored the winning goal while Getzlaf was sitting in the box. Not too smart there.
There is such a thing as choosing your battles but you have to pick your moments too.
