Other Penalties: Ekblad received a minor for elbowing; Deslauriers a minor and misconduct for instigating a fight.
Ekblad wanted no part of Deslauriers.
Ekblad gets saved by linesmen before thing turn real blad.
tough to have a fight when the other guy wants no part of it lol
The reason why Ekblad gave one to Hudon was because Hudon was throwing his weight around on any Panther defensemen that moved, earlier in the period. Ekblad wanted to send a message to Hudon but unfortunately his buddy Deslauriers saw it...Ooops ! I'm not fond of good players getting beat up but Ekblad's actions did warrant it. I'm sure Micheal Haley has made a note of this...
This video doesn’t show it all but I think it’s safe to assume Ekblad got nothing in before it picks up the fight
Deslauriers kind of took it easy on Ekblad IMO. Too bad Haley wasn't playing. We could have had some real fireworks. Win Deslauriers.
Deslauriers gets in an early solid effort to win this boring fight. Not much by Ekblad in the entire fight.
Deslauriers knows what he's doing & Ekblad doesn't ... Amazing in the NHL of today Ekblad who goes 6'5 & at least 230 can't fight when he has too. How does a guy that big just doesn't know how ... I mean some where along the line in his career he had to show something ... Must have been on the same team as Brian Boyle (1st rd pick & career 4th liner ) ... Maybe even Getzlaf, ever see him try & fight ... All of them, BIG FOR NOTHING in the fighting part when they have too..... Win Deslauriers
All Les Canadien!! Elblad never got going and eats a few for his trouble.
Ekblad who is a big skilled kid decides to throw some Pronger-esque elbows and Nicky D brings him to task for it. The McCarron/Deslauriers combo could bring some excitement to the Habs games down the very ending here.
Deslauriers is one bright spot for the Habs this season, and proves it again here, taking out a guy that took a cheap shot at a smaller player. Well done.
Pretty good fight. Deslauriers's performance reminded me of the fight with McCarron. He uses his left to hold the jersey and get jabs in and while doing that he pulled and pushed Ekblad and his jersey to take control of the fight and then used his right to finish Ekblad off.
Damn, Habs fight, wow at least they can do something right.
Peel the shield, it is crazy how these guys are willing trash their hands on a shield. Take a tip from juniors, un-snap the chin strap, aka "save your knuckles."
All Des here
2 4 linesman
The Hab with a narrow victory in a lame one.
Well unfortunately you don't see on this feed the viscous elbow Ekblad delivers to Hudon, .....Ekblad has 5 inches and 30 lbs advantage over Hudon you do see the elbow on a YouTube feed in both English and French ....really deliberate and dangerous with intent to injure a much smaller player...the best feed is the French one where they isolate the hit and the referee's quick response This is one of those times an avenging player stepping in and actually does well... I gave the edge to Deslauriers who lands a few and two really stiff jersey jabs that starts Ekblads nose to leak a little.. I like this kid Deslauriers ...scored this 5
