Other Penalties: Keith received an instigator, unsportsmanlike conduct and misconduct; Desjardins a match penalty for a hit to the head.
These days Duncan Keith fights about as often as Muhammad Ali and it shows but he saw his teammate get laid out with a legal hit and went after Desjardins. Once again the refs blew the call by giving Desjardins a match penalty which was rescinded by the league after the game.
Sucked the hit was good
The fight never materialized, but that was just a clean and solid shoulder to shoulder great hit!
get to see same hit 11 times but the fight was in background. No doubt desjardin wins, but gonna score it for the record a draw, since this was a small guy fending for his teammate against a big guy.
Didn't look like much of a fight at all....love to see a player stick up for a teammate who just received a cheap shot
Not the bgest fight but kudos to Keith for doing what a good teammate does!
Boarderline dirty hit. Duncan Keith reacts, probably loses, but gets points for sticking up for his linemate. So its a draw.
Really?!? Duncan Keith won that crap fight?? Homers are at it, yet again...
GREAT HIT !!!!!!!!
Hats off to Keith. Calling out BOOOLLIIIIIIG, next match up between these two teams
Desjardins gives Mayers a poormans' re-enactment of the Lindros-Stevens incident Keith shows up later to test his own visor strength and is rammed into the boards for his trouble
andrew with the win
Second hit to the head penalty I've seen this year, where no one was hit in the head. ( Other one was Blues Backes against Red Wings). Idiot Zebras are now penalizing clean shoulder checks and giving 5 minutes no less. Lets put skirts on the boys and not let em bump each other. Pathetic. Win Desjardins. Pathetic, might as well turn on some ice dancing. Makes me sick what theyre doing to the game.
The NHL needs to figure out a way to keep guys from having to fight after clean, hard, hits. There's a time and place; this wasn't it.
outside of the launch it was a clean hit shoulder to shoulder. That's why when in open ice you keep your head on a swivel
I give the fight a draw, but Desjardins open ice check was a beauty.
Clean but very hard hit by Desjardins, Keith stands up for Mayers and loses. Desjardins is the real loser to the referees who throw him out of the game for a good hockey hit.
Nice to see that visor wearing cheap piece of shit react to a clean hit, something Keith knows little about, then take a beating. Suck it hawks.
this isnt a fight
Clean hit, fight not worth vote.
A good hit and good on Keith to respond, but he's not really a capable scrapper.
keith stepped up for his teammate but he got beaten up
Hit was marginal...bad call by the ref...no hit to the head that i could see. Keith loses the fight easily.
Mayers keep your head up,.Desjardins easily.
Classless move by desjardins, glad to see Keith actually get physical
Win Desjardins. Clean hit, caught Mayers with his head down. Keith feeling a bit guility because he gave him that suicide pass. Desjardins is a tough customer, clear winner.
This retaliation b.s. for clean hits has to stop. Keith is a loser just based on that (of, but then he still lost the fight anyway). Mis-call on the refs part!
CLEAN hit, and in a trend that I don't like, retribution for it. I know this is a fight site but I hate it when fights start over a 100% clean hit.
This was no fight? how can you twits give Desjardins an edge? Give props to Keith for instigating- AD came off his skates to pummel Mayers- should be a suspension! cheap shot at a guy who was watching the play........Shanny come on! GO HAWKS! 2013 CUP WINNERS!
Ada boy Keith. But win Desjardins.
...NO HIT to the HEAD -- NO WAY! THAT is a BOGUS call -- CLEAN hit all-the-way! THIS is EXACTLY why the NHL is being RUINED,....because the league is hell-bent on ELIMINATING all physical-play! TEXT BOOK HIT by Desjardins,...NO LAUNCHING, whatsoever,...and he DIDN'T deliver it to the HEAD! THIS is the way the game is supposed to be played AND intended to be played,
crap fight but I love that the home team announcers didn't wine and cry about the hit, even though it was against their player. Refs got that one wrong...
Clean hit and clean win for AD.
The match penalty to Desjardins was rescinded, ref made the right call on the ice and the league made the right call later. You gotta call what you see and if you were on the ice you would have seen the same thing. At first look it did look like a head shot, on slow-mo you see there is no head contact. Good for Keith to step in for a teammate, normally it would be Mayers stepping in when Keith gets hit. Good to see.
Presumably Duncan Keith felt guilty for that hospital pass. Consensus seems to be clean hit -- certainly looked clean.
For the record Keith is 6'1" 200lbs and Desjardin is listed as 6'1" 195 , not "much bigger"
Even though Keith won some points from the 'hawks fans for sticking up for a teammate (something not seen much in the past 2 years), he crumbles like a japanese reactor in an earthquake.
looked he got mostly shoulder with the initial hit. don't think it was a match penalty.
Mayers blown up... Not much video of the fight... OriginalSex1957 flaccid once again...
While it wasn't much of a fight, Desjardins was never anything but dominant; it really wasn't ever a contest.
I guess by hockey rules, that would be considered a 'clean' hit as Meyers did made contact with the puck.... Howerver, I see otherwise. Meyers was blind sided and it was a dangerous body check. Where's the respect ? Good job by Keith to step up for Meyers ( Jamal always does for his teamates as well ). Unfortunately for Desjardins...he'll have to face the music with Jamal next meeting.
