As a neutral fan here I can't see how everyone thought Downie won this. If anything, I think Downie is lucky the linesmen came in when they did because Doan would have likely began to unload. 5 and draw...
Downie lands a few more for the W.
Props to both guys, Downie for sticking up for a teammate after a big hit, and Doan for answering the bell. Draw and a 5.
Downie blows chunks, but he beat Doan in this so-so bout.
I see a draw here both got same number landed as well thrown
i didnt doubt that doan would win this fight but i was wrong...draw and 4
P.O.S vs P.O.S. The Linesmen should have just let the two of them go at it until there was a knock out.
Whoever voted for Downie needs glasses ! Can't even hit a player in this pussified NHL anymore. CLEAN hit all you pens' whiners. Not nhl players' fault if Penguins players have soft mellons
Doan won the beginning of the fight, Downie had the end. Draw and a 5
Why jump in this fight?
Too close to call - draw.
would have like it if the linesmen waited abit longer.good battle for both
Doan.. quality over quantity.
Doan with a close win in a hug fest
Doan with the win.
What the hell are the announcers watching?
doan did only enough to take the little twerp. he was being merciful if anything.
You know what the hit wasn't dirty but he did have him prone and vulnerable and didn't have to finish it as hard as he did. Letang had the misfortune of being standing at just the right position for him to fall and strike his head on the boards.......just bad luck.... The fight well I'm no Downie fan that's for sure but he surprises me here how well he does against the much bigger Doan .....win for the Downie and I scored it a 4
If some of you people dislike Downie, fine, but at least give credit where credit is due or just don't vote at all. The scrap was a close one but, admit it, Downie had the edge here. And tpr1960, show some class here. You apparently have never been to Pittsburgh. If you would visit, you would see how idiotic your comments are.
Where was the other linesman as the ref broke up the fight ?!
Downie does his job. So much better than sending Adams out to get beat like Tina Turner.
Doan won. Homer votes for Downie? Doan is much stronger.
Lol @ the Arizona homer announcers
Bit of a homer job announcing, until they admit at the end that the Dislikable Downie got in a "few licks" (or words of similar import).
Doan way too strong for peckerface!
Not sure how so many people gave this to Downie. Maybe cause of the couple good hits. Doan gets this win and Downie should be thanking the refs from stopping it.
At around 0:27 Downie gets a few good punches on Doan. Other than that it seemed pretty even
Decent scrap Downie of course had the best connected. **** officials...
Doan deserved to get his ass kicked. Steve Downie was standing up for his teammate and Downie taught Doan a lesson for the hit that was late on Letang. Way to go Downie!!! :)
King of Goons.... I can't stand Downie but I don't get your point here. Looked to me that Doan is the one pushing for this fight. As for the fight, Downie lands two and the only hit for Doan came after the officials started breaking up the fight
Gaye homer announcers. Jack Edwards sister?
Downie landed a couple and Doan landed one when the refs came in.
Not a dirty hit on Letang, but Doan stepped up when he had to, one of the most respectable guys in the league. As for the fight, in spite of what these Coyotes announcers would tell you, I believe that Downie had a slight edge in this fight. Hugfest for the most part, Downie actually landed one or two that didn't hit a helmet. Homer review, but it's what I think, this could be a draw too.
I didn't give Downie much of a shot but he wins this easily with 3 solid rights. Doan is a tough guy but not this time.
The ever noble Captain vs The super pest. Both guys did a great job of their role here. Doan answered for the "hit" on Letang which I believe was just an unfortunate landing and Downie stuck up for his fallen teammate The fight was a decent 5 with an edge to Downie.
This was a close scrap. Downie comes on late to get the narrow win.
Good, spirited scrap. Downie with the slight W. If anyone read what Doan said after the game, he actually supported Downie for sticking up for Letang and referred to Downie as a "character guy" who is "the type of guy you want on your team, that stands up for your teammates and goes to the wall for his teammates." I would love to have both Downie and Doan on my team.
Really Decent Fight. Give Downie the Edge.
Love him or hate him, you've got to admire Downie. He's sort of like a Derek Dorsett only with some fighting skills.
Downie can't play either ? Dude who said that Is a complete idiot. 14 goals over 30 points. crombeen?? Please leave site if you have no clue?
Downie got his ass whipped. Give me a break Pen fans.
It makes me laugh, that the Downie haters have to eat a little crow on this one. There is no way this was a draw. The three boomer rights to the Doaner chisel puss, clearly gives Downie the Win!!! Doan went a little overboard on the Letang hit and I'm glad to see that he went home tonight with a big ol fat lip. Great job Downie!!
Maybe I should turn in my hockey fan card. I'm about to say something I think will be unpopular. The injury to Letang wasn't caused by a dirty hit by Doan. Even Downie said afterward than he has nothing but respect Doan and that he didn't think it was done on purpose. Essentially Downie stood up for his teammate. I guess it was a "professional" fight? This makes zero sense. Doan didn't do it to Letang. It was a freak accident, really. Looking at what happened to Letang I'm wondering if he should have continued his career after the injuries and stroke. I mean he wasn't boarded. He wasn't hit in a way that was close to even be a dirty and he winds up hospitalized. Even the COYOTES were applauding Letang when he got taken off the ice. Fine. Or Maybe not. But it's not the point. WHY DOES THIS FIGHT EVEN HAPPEN??? It's not like the ghosts of Tai Domi and Sean Avery were playing for the Coyotes. NOBODY DID ANYTHING WRONG. Stand up for your teammate when someone takes a cheap shot at him. Beat the snot out of the other team's pest on GP. Sure. Keep the goons off of your star. Awesome. I get it. Fights serve a purpose. I get it. But nobody did anything wrong here. I wouldn't have blamed Doan if he refused to fight. I'm sorry for your guy, but this is what instigation is. If you want PIM because it makes you feel better, then here take the extra 2. I feel bad for Downie but not so bad that I don' want someone to beat the snot out of him now.
Doan gets saved by the refs. He was about to visit Letang at the hospital.
Steve downie is the biggest piece of $hit in the league, and he can't play either. Win Doan on class alone. Shitzburg voters out in force since they have no enforcer. Oh and your town smells like old iron workers, your mom told me.
Someone should probably slap Downie's mother for giving birth to him.
