Mr Unfortunate Initials uses ''the old horse collar''???... to get Bieskas attention.
But despite the initial success of a leaping-left by the Canuck,
Crombeen eventually gained position, and some sort of redemption, with the knockdown.
Give this one to Crombeen I guess. It doesn't last long. What is it with the Canucks? Bieksa jumps Crombeen earlier and O'Brien gets involved with a shove on Crombeen even though he is clearly engaged with Bieksa.
Draw. Pushing a guy off balance does not constitute a win. The zebras jumped in way too early. After both guys went to the ice, they were both ready to get up and keep going except for the asshole refs. Two FAIR fights between these two seemingly even matched competitors.
RIGHT Jab and Bieksa goes down...or was that Bieksa goes down and takes a Jab on the way down...nope...definately a right and then he started to go down... Granted that Bieksa was loosing his balance, but the video clearly shows the punch, the change in the body angle/momentum and Bieksa starts to go down Forward and twisting. So, will stick with slight edge to Crombeen...Have the advantage of seeing it live and on the videos I took on a 1080P HD Camcorder (from up in the Mez, though)...not judging based on what the announcers are saying...and Crombeen did "win" that contest.
