WWE has come to Dallas...

completely agree with ozman.i have to call it a draw thou....interesting info about begin's starts at road games

Saw someone say that Garbutt had an assist. Just wanted to correct that and say he had a goal. Can't believe the Stars blew a 3-1 in the 3rd and end up losing 3-4. Kari was hurt. Bachman (back up) isn't that great in the pipes and a few D men are terrible (Daley and Goligoski in particular).

Begin takes out the "Garbutt" accentuating the metaphor by dumping him like a trash can

Posted by Sasky001 on February 18, 2013 at 08:23 PM

Begin showing no respect for the 30 year old rookie named after a kitchen appliance.

begin with the win

A fireman's carry takedown?! Can't wait for the belly to belly suplex...

Posted by fernben8 on February 18, 2013 at 12:44 PM

The only thing left for Cowboy Steve to do was to brand his Garbutt with a hot Iron....(ouch ! )

Posted by CofRed92 on February 17, 2013 at 09:08 PM

holy shit....win Beginner

Hogtie that steer, Steve!

Posted by sedinfan on February 17, 2013 at 09:08 PM

Not sure why Begin did that, as he was throwing them and doing OK and he has been in many a fight over the years. it was quite the takedown however, as lifted Garbutt up as if he was a sack of flour.

Posted by GreatMurray on February 18, 2013 at 11:46 PM

Not much of a fight...no points for the nice wrestling move. I'll give Begin 1 point for missing some punches...Garbutt did nothing.

Posted by AC1026 on February 18, 2013 at 07:12 AM

2 for the take down...only points of the fight so Begin wins...

Posted by nait on February 18, 2013 at 04:08 PM

nice takedown

Posted by rossgale on February 17, 2013 at 10:57 PM

The pant grab is usually used when you don't want to fight anymore. It looked like Begin didn't want to fight in the first place. Both guys ended the night +1 with an assist on only 8 mins of ice time. That's pretty productive.

Posted by bammer24 on February 18, 2013 at 12:39 AM

Begin pays tribute to Olympics bad idea to stop wrestling from the games by making an example out of Garbutt by bodyslamming him for a Gold victory.WWE would be proud.

Posted by ozman on February 17, 2013 at 07:46 PM

This fight was bullsh...Begin didn't wanna fight so he pussed out and grabbed a leg. Garbutt wins by forfeit. Postscript: Garnett scores a goal. Double win.

Posted by 777Big on February 17, 2013 at 09:44 PM

No winner because there was no fight........

Posted by Arkie without h on February 17, 2013 at 08:28 PM

If you're going to grab the pants, shouldn't you at least by him dinner first?

Posted by billy jack on February 18, 2013 at 03:02 PM

what the hell was that.so now a guy has to worry if a guys going to bale and flip him and crack his head on the ice,cheap and gutless move by begin,but not surprised.

Posted by Aldous on February 18, 2013 at 12:33 PM

Looked like Begin didn't want to fight and wanted to end it quickly.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on February 17, 2013 at 10:14 PM

Pure crap!

Posted by chad420 on February 18, 2013 at 10:29 AM

edge Begin

Posted by kkdowning on February 18, 2013 at 08:35 AM

Begin went for the single leg takedown and 2 points.

Posted by claire alexande on February 20, 2013 at 04:19 PM

Begin wins the meh bout, but that takedown was a little over the top and dangerous. Save that stuff for the Capukes, Steve!

Posted by Dave Brown HOF on February 23, 2013 at 11:45 PM

This is Calfairy's answer to their toughness and grit inadequacies??? If you're going to try and grab the guys junk Begin, at least you should probably buy him dinner first. What a classless and pathetic way out of a fight..........I see that Begin has fallen right in with his team already though, except that he actually drops his gloves.....and then bails.

Posted by HchVegasNHL57 on February 17, 2013 at 08:58 PM

Anyone know if begin does MMA in the off season? Textbook Takedown. Too bad the zebras jumped in before he could attempt an arm bar. That being said I prefer my hockey fights to be more punchy and less takedowny. Win garbutt for atleast attempting the 'punchy' part.

Posted by canamrugby on February 19, 2013 at 12:46 AM

Gawd sad is it to be a Flames fan when not losing a fight (was this even a fight?) is taken as a win. Tim Hunter would laugh at this lineup or whoop-sies.

Posted by OlKoot on February 18, 2013 at 12:05 PM

i give it to Begin for the great take down.
