Antoine Roussel - The Frenchman who won't surrender.

Posted by King of Goons on October 20, 2013 at 11:57 AM

Matt Irwin got beat up and embarrassed. He was cringing like an old beaten dog while eating lefts. He also looked like he was about to cry after the fight. Serves him right for checking a player from behind into the boards. Dominant win for Antoine Roussel over the the coward Matt Irwin.

A lot of us may dislike Roussel, but you gotta give it to the kid. He can really throw them.

Posted by b.t.wilson on October 17, 2013 at 11:42 PM

God I love these heat of the moment donnybrooks. Easy win Roussel, top points to both for entertainment.

Posted by Sasky001 on October 17, 2013 at 11:55 PM

Not too often the refs break up a fight because it is completely lopsided.

Posted by philbert on October 18, 2013 at 01:18 AM

Two visors square off. Figure we'll see more and more of that due to the new visor rule. Irwin cheap shots Daley (why would you do that on the PP?) and the Rooster pounds him. Interesting to note that Roussel's helmet comes off first, and he still just beat him silly.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on October 18, 2013 at 01:10 AM

Roussel is normally one of my least favorite fighters, however if he continues to pound heads like this I promise to refrain from any more frog comments! That was a serious pummeling, hope to see more of this.

Posted by SouthPaw017 on October 17, 2013 at 11:49 PM

Wow.... Roussel has some seriously bad intentions and power behind those lefts.... Irwin got the jump, but that ended quickly, along with his lid getting popped off... Nasty. Great line from RSIxidor....

Posted by cible on October 18, 2013 at 03:51 AM

Roussel is one of the most entertaining guys to Watch fight in this league. Always gives a great showing and willing to die on his shield. Would like to see him fare againts good middleweights in this league.

Posted by Mark1967 on October 17, 2013 at 11:20 PM

Roussel all the way. Kept throwing and Irwin kept recieving.

Posted by mdruh09 on October 17, 2013 at 11:10 PM

Roussel and a 7 for the fight

Posted by treborjim on October 18, 2013 at 08:27 AM

Roussel can throw them but Irwin isn't a fighter. Love the comment about the frenchman that won't surrender. That would be a first.

Posted by nbecc1 on October 18, 2013 at 11:07 AM

Roussel put a good old fashion as whipping on irwin Landed some great shots, iRWIN was a gamer, but big win for Roussel

Posted by jlmcgui on October 19, 2013 at 08:22 AM

Roussel sticking up for Daley, puts a beat-down on Irwin.

Posted by srehm1 on October 19, 2013 at 03:15 PM

Roussel with a nice win here landing both rights and a BIG left.

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on October 18, 2013 at 12:20 AM

Ass beating

Posted by sedinfan on October 19, 2013 at 02:35 PM

Irwin got what he deserved, that is what everyone should get for those boarding or hit from behind plays.

Posted by Kordic64 on October 18, 2013 at 01:36 AM

Roussel gave a physical beating to Irwin the same way I'd give a verbal beating to the dipsh!t who voted for Irwin.

Posted by jokersmith on October 27, 2013 at 09:14 AM

Instigator rule needs to go. These guys that hit from behind and do all these little dirty plays need to understand that they will face punishment from the enforcers for their actions.

Posted by dubcook on October 18, 2013 at 09:34 AM

Frickin' love Roussel.

Posted by BruinsAllDaySon on October 18, 2013 at 06:22 PM

@staceyb Bruins would NEVER sign Antoine Roussel. So STFU.

Posted by Diablo69 on October 22, 2013 at 06:24 PM

Although I hate the Shield master frenchmen (in my book, if your a true enforcer, loose the shield, if not your an ass.hole). So to recapitulate, fairly even at the beginning... the AH frenchmen goes wild and come true @ the end.

Posted by "LET THEM GO" on October 18, 2013 at 02:10 AM

Roussel with a clear win and a good job sticking up for his team mate.Irwin paid the price for that hit.I`m still hoping Roussel gets his ass handed to him this year.

Posted by Meatlump on October 18, 2013 at 09:07 PM

I love how Roussel is pulling in with the right and flailing lefts. Clear W for Roussel.

Posted by lb1631 on October 25, 2013 at 09:54 AM

Now thats a hockey fight!!! Win Roussel. That left against the boards was awesome.

Posted by hughcares on October 18, 2013 at 03:02 PM

Gotta like those pure in the moment fights and good to see a solid beating. Thanks for restraining on the frog comments dry humper - I guess the rest of us will stop thinking your a moron.

Posted by mobilope on October 21, 2013 at 03:49 PM

Holy crap, Roussel let Irwin's head and face know what it feels like to be the heavy bag in the boxing gym

Posted by TrailerBoy on October 26, 2013 at 08:46 AM

GREAT BOUT!!! Very fun scrap to watch. Irwin did good, but Roussel stole the show at the end

Posted by Aldous on October 18, 2013 at 12:19 AM

Obvious win by the Frenchman no matter what bitter person votes against him. Irwin had no chance against Dallas' import pummel.

Posted by brian3451 on October 18, 2013 at 08:32 AM

Kids this is why there is fighting in hockey to take care of hits from behind and the like.

Posted by Zigouigoui on October 29, 2013 at 03:27 PM

Magnifique antoine!!!

Posted by BrownDomi21 on October 24, 2013 at 03:04 AM

Toe to Toe, Roussel can throw em'

Posted by geta02it on October 25, 2013 at 02:29 PM

Easy win for Roussel but because the Dallas jerseys are so ugly, Irwin gets the nod...ha! Roussel dominates!

Posted by stonz22 on October 18, 2013 at 12:44 AM

somebody got a beating !!

Posted by virex21 on October 18, 2013 at 01:15 PM

Softened Irwin up with a flurry of rights, pooped the lid, and closed strong with dominating lefts. Love this kid, glad he's on my team.

Posted by DARCY T on October 18, 2013 at 04:26 PM

i love the frenchie and love the beating

Posted by jordash_n on October 18, 2013 at 12:34 PM

'Deathwish' Roussel, the dude who came up with this nickname is so the winner.

Posted by picsman04 on October 26, 2013 at 01:57 PM

Irwin got what was coming to him.

Posted by nojjon on October 17, 2013 at 11:44 PM

wellllll, Irwin can catch. Total win by Roussel.

Posted by mlongo10 on October 22, 2013 at 08:33 PM

great fight, Roussel was just throwing.

Posted by ithurtssogood on October 19, 2013 at 01:38 PM

A passionate fight from both sides is a beautiful spectacle to watch. Win- Roussel, but props too Irwin for hanging on and getting in a few good shots as well.

Posted by soldiermedic88 on October 22, 2013 at 02:50 AM

The kid wasn't ready for the angry frenchmen. Roussel didnt hesitate for a second sticking up for the boarding hit

Posted by m1a1pt1988 on May 05, 2014 at 03:14 AM

that's a fight!!!

Posted by Jordybats99 on December 15, 2016 at 09:10 PM

I'm gonna give it a TKO victory for Roussel. Irwin was done.

Posted by GreatMurray on October 18, 2013 at 10:39 PM

Man!!! Roussel blows this dude away...nice fight!! San Jose is turning into Detroit lite...at least Detroit wins one once in a while...But not tonight!

Posted by bigdog2007 on October 18, 2013 at 09:36 PM

Irwin beaten like a Leaf

Posted by 5minmajor420 on October 18, 2013 at 02:39 AM

The crazy frenchie turned Irwin into a rock em sock em robot who loses...in fact it looked like the linesman felt the same way...when the head pops off it's over.

Posted by chad420 on October 18, 2013 at 10:48 AM

AR-15 lights up Cowboy Bob Irwin

Posted by Thoragh on October 18, 2013 at 01:03 AM

Good on Irwin for standing at the end of that... but that's about all he did good in this one. Win Roussel by a long shot.

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on October 18, 2013 at 12:58 AM

Irwin didn't want any of that, Roussel was beating him left and right. TKO win for the up-and-comer.

Posted by FHgrad99 on October 19, 2013 at 02:32 PM

Irwin was game but Roussel connected with a lot more heavy shots than Irwin and he gets the win.

Posted by Mike Kole on March 15, 2014 at 10:27 AM

Went about the way we should expect, given Roussel is an experienced (if young) fighter, and Irwin has had a total of three fights in his life.

Posted by mr hockey on October 18, 2013 at 05:04 PM

Irwin got hammered , easy win for Roussel

Posted by Gunslinger on October 20, 2013 at 07:19 AM

Irwin hung in there but Roussel was just too much and won handily.

Posted by legion31 on October 18, 2013 at 02:54 AM

Roussel all the way !!!!

Posted by rocky 1 on October 18, 2013 at 05:23 PM

Roussel with the clear decision in this one!

Posted by Behn Wilson on October 20, 2013 at 09:25 AM

The world's angriest Frenchman (and my new favourite lightweight) unloads with both hands on a surprised and immediately on the defensive Irwin

Posted by staceyb on October 18, 2013 at 05:45 AM

I'll bet anything the Bruins wanted Roussel in the deal for Seguin because man that guy would be a perfect fit on their roster. Irwin got smoked and deservedly so.

Posted by Canner on July 23, 2015 at 04:03 PM

Irwin's a schmuck and Sweeney Todd is a bigger one for signing him. A bad sign of things to come for the Bs when smallish Frenchmen are pummelling your much bigger Dmen. Bs shoulda kept Roussel when they had him years ago

Posted by fernben8 on October 18, 2013 at 07:49 AM

The cause for this fight makes it a little easier to like the always trigger happy Roussel... Good intensity and a 6. I want to see Tony go against a top middle weight.

Posted by ronnieb on October 23, 2013 at 09:31 PM

I'm calling tko because irwin was grabbing the ref looking for some help.

Posted by Amerkfan8 on October 18, 2013 at 07:07 PM

Wow that was a thriller!! Win Roussel

Posted by ARH521 on October 24, 2013 at 11:00 AM

Great fight......looked even to start.....but Roussel clearly wins it in the waning seconds

Posted by Screaming Buffalo on October 18, 2013 at 12:31 AM

Roussel reminds me of a poor mans Rick Rypien. Not as good but he can throw fairly well with both hands and he is really quick with his punches. Roussel with the nice win here.

Posted by Snoka on October 19, 2013 at 12:26 PM

Who is the homo that voted for Irwin? This was a total domination by Roussel.

Posted by howzr42 on December 05, 2013 at 11:56 AM

All Roussel. He is becoming a poor man's Steve Ott, but with more fighting. I love his style of intimidation and he dominated this fight

Posted by kkdowning on October 18, 2013 at 01:19 PM

the Mad Frenchman!! That was a stellar effort by Roussel. Haven't seen much of him yet this year, apparently he has some pent up aggrression

Posted by bfox9 on October 19, 2013 at 09:38 PM

As close to a TKO as they come. The linesmen were about to hop in to save Irwin's life.

Posted by certified goon on October 18, 2013 at 07:44 AM

Roussel popped the top off Irwin

Posted by 87CROSBY87 on October 22, 2013 at 10:19 PM

What's with the Infinity add placed along the VIDEO choices; so the add keeps coming up excluding the video choices? Is HF.com going to become another YOUTUBE HUGE Thumbs Down

Posted by Oswegofightfan on October 18, 2013 at 09:14 AM

Roussel finally wins a fight. Of course it makes it more fair if the guy actually knows there is a fight before he gets hit 4 four times. A cheap win but a win. N that may have been the softest boarding penalty I have ever seen. Kinda getting sick of these cheap boarding calls. Turning away from a hit at the last second is a pussy move. And shouldn't b a boarding play. Second fight in a row where I don't think they should have called a boarding. N should have called a penalty on the hittie. Lol. Oh and to the guy who is watching his first fight. I think someone has to actually fall down for a tko. Lol. Figures your a Bruins fan, just like the announcers there, you all see the fights in your own little special way. Acording to bruins fans, they havnt lost a fight in 15 years. What a joke the whole state is.
