Dive, usual stuff from Montreal players. Win Malone. Go Bruins.

Based on everything we have seen from Mr. Shanahan, Ryan Malone will be taking an extended vacation.

Posted by boldbilly on October 04, 2011 at 02:05 PM

I see the usual haters are out lead by the bruin faithfull.How about we re-visit without prejudice. 1) You see the ref's arm go up at point of impact signifing a penalty about to be called if the ref see's it as a major infraction and game misconduct by virtue of no suspension does this mean the ref made the wrong call? 2) SHANAHAN AND YZERMAN former teamates.... is this the new buddy system like Boston with the cambell conection? STRANGE COINCIDENCE! 3) Shanahan blew this one . His credibility comes in to question here . This hit is worse than half the one's he actually gave suspensions for. FINALLY FOR THOSE OF YOU MAKING FUN OF GORGES JUST REMEMBER THIS............HE KNEW GOING IN .....HE WAS GOING TO GET HIS ASS KICKED.....BUT WAS STICKING UP FOR HIS TEAM MATE.....THIS SHOWS COURAGE AND SHOULD BE APPLAUDED..... AS FOR MALONE....HE'LL GET HIS. SHANAHAN IS NO BETTER THAN CAMBELL WITH HIS CONSISTENCY LETS SEE WHAT THE FUTURE CALLS ARE.

did a poor candian get checked, boo hoo dont hit the canadians there will be a police investigation now for sure. georges is a tool like most of the canadians........................to bad.

Posted by slavv on October 02, 2011 at 04:51 PM

Malone is a moron! He wins the fight, but he will be sitting for some time after the most-likely suspension....

Posted by mudman55 on October 02, 2011 at 06:16 AM

Malone's a tool. He easily could have avoided this.

Posted by DARCY T on October 02, 2011 at 10:07 AM

malone...and i dont get why malone got a penalty on that hit.campoli's head was low and malone didnt stick out his elbow.should he have avoided him or what??

Posted by Spanky_Jazz on October 02, 2011 at 08:32 AM

Bad hit, good showing by Malone in the scrap. Malone either needs to lower his shoulder and hit Campoli in the chest or just avoid the hit altogether, I say. Good on Gorges to step in, even if he did get himself beat up in the process.

Posted by apwoz on October 02, 2011 at 08:54 AM

If yhour coming at a guy keep your balance.... really Gorges really. he almost pushed him over and ended it without a punch thrown.

Posted by NotoriousT on October 02, 2011 at 02:57 AM

I agree with 25Pens45. Really though what was Malone supposed to do here? U cant lay off a check bcuz the guy has his head down. There was a time when this was a mans game & if u were stupid enough to have your head down u would get run over & pay for it. Now every fairy Euro player & these fags Montreal always picks up get protected by these stupid rules. Here comes another shot towards taking checking & fighting out of the game I love. Fuck u Bettman & the pussies from the NHLPA

Posted by staceyb on October 08, 2011 at 10:10 PM

I don't see how Malone can escape the Wrath of Shanahan for that elbow to Campoli's head. P.S. It didn't happen. So now it appears that Shanny will use surgical strikes against head shot offenders rather than a "one size fits all" policy.

Posted by sixclocks on October 02, 2011 at 10:43 AM

you bend over and then no one is allowed to check you?? make them wear panties next or what????

Josh, the next captain of the Montreal Canadiens, loses as expected to a much more powerful opponent. But Malone is the real loser here.

Posted by 25Pens45 on October 02, 2011 at 01:19 AM

What's Malone supposed to do here? Lay off Camilleri because he's 4 ft tall. I dont know about some of the checks being called this year. I understand what their trying to do, but... Win Malone, no contest.

Posted by ETR on October 02, 2011 at 10:22 AM

Other Penalties: TBD?? I guess the hockeyfights guys don't understand French. (like me) Shanahan is on the warpath for this stuff, at least 5 for Malone and I don't mean minutes. As far as the fight goes, Malone easily over Gorges.

Posted by HerrT on October 03, 2011 at 07:05 PM

Ryan Malone just got my vote for MVP, eliminated 2 Habs with one whistle! Way to go Shanny; keep your heads up Max P, Chris C and the rest of the Habs! This is the NHL, not Ice Capades!

Posted by rowbearprobear on October 02, 2011 at 07:19 PM

If your going to skate in there and fight a guy to defend a teammate, at least give him the stick a little. As far as the hit, I watched it three times and couldn't really find the cheapness in it. This is hockey after all!

Posted by rocky 1 on October 02, 2011 at 01:51 PM

Stupid move for Gorges to fight Mallone ,as you seen he got the crap beat out of him!Montreal how about putting a legitamate tough guy on your roster.Smallest team in the league with no tough guy!Must be trying to score bonus points with Shanny!Some stupid French guy voted for Gorges?

Posted by countejacula on October 02, 2011 at 12:07 PM

Malone hurt two players on this play and neither one was clean. Don't expect to see Malone during the first couple of weeks of the regulare season. He won the fight after a cheap shot but it's going to cost him.

Posted by QUIGGS22 on October 03, 2011 at 08:40 PM

Sorry Habs fan but it wasnt a dirty hit & Malone tore up Gorges.

Posted by moneybags on October 02, 2011 at 06:47 AM

That was not intentional...campoli is only 5' 6"...malone was just delivering a shoulder check...I dont condone head shots and this is clearly not one of them....malone with the beatdown

Posted by Sukoshi84 on October 02, 2011 at 02:24 AM

Malone beats Gorges to the ice!

Posted by Spinner55 on October 02, 2011 at 10:52 AM


Posted by neoned on October 02, 2011 at 02:22 AM

he moved his head into the check and it was a north south check. there should be no games for this.

Posted by ThrowdownSJ408 on October 02, 2011 at 04:07 AM

win malone, fuck this league

Posted by voysmalone on October 02, 2011 at 02:11 PM

GJ Gorges for jumping in for no reason and getting your a** kicked. I don't see how that was a hit to the head. The first angle looks like a head shot, but the other three look like the upper arm came in contact, and not the elbow. His elbow was tucked, Campoli saw it coming, that's all there is to it. I even made a slow-mo gif to see it. I see an over reaction. He (Campoli) looked up to watch the fight with NO problem and even skated away without so much of a boohoo. Yeah, Gorges, what a "hero" haha.

Posted by fcm on October 02, 2011 at 01:18 AM

The guy that calls it a dive deserve the same treatment than the guy that he accuses of diving. A good hit to the head. Win Malone. Good to see a Canadien standing up for his team mate though.

Posted by Leafs2006 on October 02, 2011 at 09:03 AM

I think Shanny is going to have to ask for a raise soon....damn he's been busy. Although it seems this hit was a good acting job on the Hab going down. I dont think the hit was as devastating as it looks

Posted by oilersfansylvan on October 02, 2011 at 11:13 AM

I refuse to give Ryan Cheap Shot Malone the win.....I SURE HOPE HE GETS AT LEAST a 15 game suspension....NO EXCUSES.....

Posted by Mighty Atom on October 02, 2011 at 09:52 AM

Malone wins, but Gorges is a leader to stick up for his teamates like this (against a much bigger opponent)

Posted by kkdowning on October 02, 2011 at 09:45 AM

Malone dominated the fight. Can't tell about the hit, a few years ago that was not even close to being considered to be a penalty, now he might be suspended. If he lead with the elbow it should be a suspension

Posted by chad420 on October 02, 2011 at 05:27 PM

Malone gets him some frog

Posted by blackngold on October 04, 2011 at 11:46 AM

Atta boy Malone, give those pussies hell!

Posted by Redzilla on October 02, 2011 at 09:07 AM

Malone leads with his shoulder, Campoli reaches for the puck, and the result, blow to the head….today, that = suspension. Malone did split Georges open like an Artichoke, that was cool.

Posted by muskokadangler on October 02, 2011 at 08:22 AM

What the hell was Gorges thinking????? Skates straight to the guy like he's going to hold Malone acccountable .....like happens after checks like that all the time!!!! And then fails to drop them and go.........So he gets his ass handed to him......Did he expect malone to maybe hug and kiss WTF
