Very surprised to see this one. Win Getzlaf

What the hell was that? Was Getzlaf petting Downie and then tried to bite Downie's shoulder pad.....week. With that kind of size advantage, Getzlaf should of had no problem.

getzlaf started it and started well.then downie landed a couple.and when i thought getzlaf will use his size and would finish much smaller downie he just hanged on...draw

Definitely a draw in this ho-hum fight. As a side note, I hope the linesmen get hazard pay. Take a look at the eyes on both of them as they were breaking up the fight. All black-and-blue and swollen.

Downie should be ashamed for wasting my time with his lousy showing.

Posted by ironbar44 on October 03, 2013 at 09:24 AM

was a time DOWNIE was pretty good scrapper .not so much now

Posted by DotRats on October 03, 2013 at 10:03 AM

Ryan jumped him, no chance for Downie

Does it really count as a Gordie when you get it handed to you? Getzlaf with the win. Patrick Roy with the real win.

Geez, who is "tuff guy" Getzlaf gonna jump next, MacKinnon? I lost a lot of respect for Getzlaf after this one, expecially since Colorado has several guys who are in his weight class that would be more than happy to oblige. Next meeting may be an interesting one for Mr. Getzlaf. Heads up!

So my team is getting their a$$ kicked. Now as a Capt, I find a much smaller guy with a minute left in the game. How is that suspension gonna feel Getslack you pu$$y.

Posted by BooSanta on October 03, 2013 at 11:25 PM

Downie wanted a Gordie and Getz...well getz it for him and happily doing so as downie gets some punishment here. This is not a true Gordie as that would require a win in the fight.

Getzlaf with the size advantage but the scoreboard indicates that the fight was for naught. Downie was looking for the Gordie Howe to open the season.

Like to see Downie get beat

Posted by rocky 1 on October 03, 2013 at 07:44 PM

Getzlaf to big and strong for Downie!

Posted by toomuchjoe on October 03, 2013 at 10:10 AM

The Av's announcers are the biggest homers in hockey, On par with the Ducks. Slight edge to Getz, threw more punches.

Downie is game as hell, but he just gives away too much size to battle with most NHL guys. Getzlaf didn't do any real damage but he still gets the win.

Posted by Jer4whlr on October 05, 2013 at 02:20 AM

Downie was mismatched on this.......got a couple of good shots, but Getzlaf had the better of him.

Posted by hawkwing24 on October 03, 2013 at 09:23 AM

points for Downie duke'n it with the "C" would have rather seen him punch Roy in the face tho...

Posted by mr hockey on October 03, 2013 at 10:05 PM

has Getzlaf every fought anyone that can fight? now i know why i always disliked him ,he's a pussy!

Posted by irishdefense on October 03, 2013 at 11:05 AM

Downie always ready and willing to fight people half a foot taller than him. Lot of heart. This capped off the Gordie Howe hat trick.

Posted by 87CROSBY87 on October 03, 2013 at 11:40 PM

Getzlaf should have done a lot better vs a much smaller man; who he outweighs. Kudos to Downey in this one.

Posted by Humper on October 03, 2013 at 11:26 AM

Getzlaf wins fight. Downie wins DB-of-the-year.

Posted by Mounty in NC on February 01, 2014 at 07:07 PM

Downie should have just gone to the bench

Posted by swany65 on October 03, 2013 at 04:22 AM

Getzlaf tattoos Downey ugly mug.

Posted by travist on January 31, 2014 at 12:54 PM

the only thing that could have been better here was a beat down by a king.

Posted by mike hartman on November 10, 2013 at 09:13 AM

nice to see downie get pounded. Getzlaf is always game to fight someone 6 inches shorter than him.

Posted by kkdowning on October 03, 2013 at 09:11 AM

Giving this to Getzlaf who got in the clean shots. Downine hung in there even with the size disadvantage

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on October 03, 2013 at 04:23 PM

Getz tossed a few dandies in that one.

Posted by Behn Wilson on October 04, 2013 at 01:33 PM

Getzlaf uses his considerable size and strength advantage to take out some of his team's frustration on Mr "Gordie Howe hat trick" And by doing so... it's actually Getzlaf himself who successfully completes the latter third of the newly inaugurated "Phil Kessel hat trick" Which, of course, as we all know, consists of... A two handed slash A drive-by spear And fighting the little guy

Posted by Panchosraider on October 03, 2013 at 08:18 AM

That rat piece of trash Downie deserves every single beating he takes just as he took this one! Win Getzlaf.
