Ericsson with the win, Dorsett with the headache.
WOW!!! BOLL WOULD HAVE KILLED HIM!!!!!!!! TUFF ERICSSON. BEAT SOMEBODY 75 POUNDS LESS THAN HIM.
Wow. 6' 5" and that's all you've got? Pathetic. Ericsson got in a few jabs but that's because of the reach. This wasn't a pounding, it was a boring fight with few landing.
The Wings must be feeling pressure to fight due to all the sissy-calling they took from us last year. Unfortunately, a guy at 6'6" threw a bunch of wild punches but I honestly don't know if anything landed. And that's why the Wings don't fight...they simply can't.
Good for Ericsson for dropping the gloves, he;s gotten far better the last two years. Needs to get some more power, he should of put him out with all the ones he landed.
dorsett never had the size to reach erickson or he would of won.but then if dorsett was bigger erickson wouldn't of wanted the scrap.win for the way bigger guy.
Who the Hell scored this a draw? Slaw, what fight vid were you watching? He connected with Dorsett's head at least 5 times.
On behalf of my fellow Red Wing fans, who haven't known true team toughness since the 'Bruise Brothers' left town... ...it's about friggin' time!
Finally someone in red drops the mittens. I dont know if I can go another season of Eurohockey in Motown. Props to Ericsson for standing up and putting Dorsett in his place. Maybe he (Dorsett) should be sticking with the Carcillos/Storhuggies of the league from now on.
DD is poretty good at using that ear to soften up the fists of his opponents.
Props to someone on the Wings for fighting. Too long of a reach for Dorsett to do anything. Ericsson would be no match for anyone 6'2" or bigger.
Another homer announcer, "Dorsett has a lot of heart..." then Dorsett stops fighting because he's done getting jackhammered. Yep we're down 3-1 and Dorsett tries to spark his team? Ericsson wanted his lunch money, got him to come out to the playground and took it from him. All Dorsett did was get beat up.
Dorsett...just a heads up...if Steve Ott is too short to fight Ericsson then so are you. Big E landed and landed....and got bored with landing on the back of Dorsett's head. I think the Wings might have 20 fights this year! BIg E with the big win of a lopsided mismatch. Anyone calling this a draw or saying Ericsson didn't land at least 6-7 solid headshots is blinded by Wing-envy/hatred.
Jonathan Ericsson and Justin Abdelkader - the modern-day Bruise Brothers!
I think Dorsett's left ear is probably very sore, but other than that he should be good. Always good to see a Red Wing square go. Ericsson, 5.
Love how the Homer announcer praise how tough Dorsett is while he is geting handled by a Swede
You have to give it to Ericsson with the size and reach advantage though Dorsett was hanging in there. About 15 minutes later Nash got into a scrap with Hudler and Dorsett was ready to fight again. Look for Scott Arniel to be the first NHL coach shown to the exit door. And GM Howsom won't be too far behind. The Blue Jackets have been in a steady decline since Ken Hitchcock was fired.
Gotta love the spunk of Dorsett...almost always taking on bigger opponents. Ericsson shows he can take care of himself occasionally. Slightest edge to Ericson for being the busier of the two.
Big E cleaned Dorsett`s clock.
Derek Dorsett has taken some serious beatings over the last couple of years. This one wasn't so bad, but he rarely seems to dominate and picks fights with much bigger guys.
Ericsson landing some while using a straight arm to force Dorsett into shadow boxing...
ericsson already showed he possesses at least little bit of fighting skills in the past.his long reach advantage was hard to overcome for much smaller dorsett.win ericsson but dorsett didnt make it easy for him...gave it 6
Good Win for Big E. hes much improved. needs to keep this up
Listen to the announcers yapping about Dorsett getting his team jump started.Yeh like where is the ejection seat!Dorsett took on a guy too large and he just couldn,t reach the big Swede who beat the German Schnitzle out of him!
Easy win for Ericsson. So are the Red Wings actually going to fight this year. I am almost speechless. Behn I hope they make you proud this year. I think their nuts have finally dropped and they have become men...wooo hoooo!
jonathan gets the win in this fight.
Go Wings! They never fight. Dorsett again, needs to do this to stick around but is so small and not a good fighter.
That was too much fun, A Red Wing winning a fight and Dorsett getting hammered.
Glad to see Big E will drop the gloves if he has to. People should realize though that skilled teams don't rely on having their players fight. I'm not opposed to fighting in the game, I'd just rather see the Wings continuing to throw pucks at the net than fists at wankers.
I like Ericsson. He probably one of the best Scandinavian fighters when it comes to the technical part. He pretty much gave his opponent grace at the end of the fight which was a bit disappointing not finished the fight by at least a take-down. However, Derek Dorsett deserves cred for going after a guy, lot bigger than him.
I am impressed with both of these guys. I look forward to watching Ericsson take on some bigger guys.
Dorsett is a scrappy little guy. Don;t back down kinda guy. He might not have landed a lot of punches, but he is scrappy and should inspire his mates.
Big E answered the bell in a big big way...Blue collar is coming back to the D in a big big way. Big E and a "child please" 6
ericsson lands way more
Someone for Detroit has to fight. Good on Big E and good on Dorsett for keeping at it.
Dorsett being out classed by size really hung in there
Ericsson, what is he doing fighting a guy that small. Dorsett, what is he doing fighting a guy that big. For such a lopsided size diffrence I thought dorsett really held his own. Ericsson was definetly the winner though!
Wings finally showing some grit. I like it.
Ericsson used his reach and height in that one
Ericsson with win but plus for Dorsett taking care of his own business.
As Dorsett's girlfriend is always reminding him, "size matters".
Ericsson is still learning...but the Wings really need a guy that can step in when someone runs at their stars. He easily mauls a very game Dorsett in this one. Not a TKO but a 2 point round for sure.
Love guys that take on Big E because he's from Sweden and think he's a pussy. Not so much. Tyrone, you say Ericsson can't handle anyone over 6'2. He rag dolled Corey Perry.
Good fight. Edger Ericsson.
Reach was just too much for Dorsett, great heart by him but obvious win by the Big Swede.
Give credit to Dorsett for trying to fire up his team and dropping the mitts with the big Swed. Easy win for Ericsson, and I feel bad for Dorsetts left ear because it has to still be ringing after he got clocked with 5 to 6 solid rights...
Slight edge to Ericsson here. Dorsett is a tough little man with a lot of heart. I thought he handled himself well against a much larger opponent. Plus, Ericsson hardly landed anything despite his reach advantage.
good job for ericsson.. not known for fighting.. and i hate dorsett, this guy takes long run at ppl every game..
The reach wins it for Ericsson.
W for Reach
Ericson dominated. The tale of the tape indicated a 15 pound difference -- it looked more like 25
Win for Ericsson here...Gotta give alot of credit to Dorsett for the heart he showed when he asked this big fella "Ya wanna go?" Not many big hits for a 5" reach advantage
win Leif Ericksson
Reach: Dorsett: 50 in Erisson: 232 in Ha! W for Ericcson - but hey, props to Dorsett for not turning away! (Well, he was trying to turn away - but that da$n reach kept popping him!)
Tough to get inside that reach but it was all Ericsson and to be honest Dorsett's lucky he didn't get Creamed
Good tilt, i would like to Ericsson drop um a little more, did well.
and dorsett calls himself a fighter
Derek Dorsett is fearless but Ericsson was just too big for him to handle and Ericsson's reach advantage was the difference in this one.
Not close, Ericsson by a mile. Dorsett wins as many fights as the Jackets win games, not many.
what??? 2 fights for the wings in 5 games?
