Other Penalties: Derek Dorsett received a roughing.
Gave Eaves the win. Neither one looked extremely anxious to go.
Patrick Eaves is the poster boy for gutless cowards. He ran from Derek Dorsett like a little fairy and fought the smallest guy on the Blue Jacket team who was in first game back from a shoulder injury. My guess is he will spend the night running and hiding Friday night. Gutless.
w t f was that bring back May
detroit doesnt have any real fighters
Hahah. Versteeg beat Eaves ass earlier this year. I'm surprised he would even drop them ever again after that humiliation! Edge goes to...nobody. Let's thank these two idiots for wasting our time.
The announcer thought Eaves was "mismatched" then it was Russell has been hurt to Eaves is a tough guy. Wow, he needs to become a political reporter. Where was the fight?
WTF! a fight in a Red wings game
eaves wanted nothing to do with dorsett at all.
Eaves is a girl. Ran from Dorsett as fast as he could.
Edge to Eaves for throwing the only punches, and props for letting up once he realized that Russell was not firing back. Amazingly different calls by the announcers on the two feeds, I'd urge the Columbus fellas to be a little less sensationalist. Eaves is a complete mismatch for Dorsett, and Eaves shouldn't feel obliged to fight a much bigger fighter for putting a clean hit on his opponent. Columbus doesn't let it go and they go back after Eaves, except Russell is the guy who gets there, and it ends up being a mismatch once more - this time in favor of the Wings. Edge Eaves.
Great hit...followed by two disinterested visors hooking up for a non event. Just give me a minute to enjoy the fact that, finally, someone in a Red Wings uniform actually fought, allowing for the teams' bi-annual appearance on this site. Hey Brad, how's the back nine?
Eaves won the fight.
eaves gets the win.
I was in Columbus last weekend but I still can't get it off my shoe.
I find it funny that all of you morons are calling Eaves a pussy for skating away from Dorsett. Number 1 a guy shouldn't have to defend himself after giving a clean hit. Number 2 Dorsett is a fighter and Eaves is not. I don't see the point of him fighting with Dorsett just to defend his ability to play the game. Dorsett couldn't crack the line up of several AHL teams, hence the fact that he is playing for Columbus. Columbus should be embarrassed, Russell is hurt and knows he cant throw a punch, but he still decides to drop the gloves. That's like a paraplegic going for a swim and that's what this fight looked like. I agree horrible fight. Hey Columbus fans if you even exist, enjoy the links this year. Once again another dismal year.
Eaves had no choice but to drop them after a clean hit. Eaves gets the W
Eaves seemed a little hesistant and I dont know what Russel was doing, if he was injured, maybe he shouldn't have dropped the gloves to fight...
Eaves all day.
nothing happened when they got back up. I give Eaves the win.
WTG Patrick, he did show some pretty good spirit earlier in the year against Versteeg and in this visored fight gets the edge for landing a couple. Next time take the bucket off man cuzz you can handle yourself pretty well Win Eaves
WTF can't you hit in the NHL anymore?
fortunately it was a win for Detroit red wing forward patrick eaves. i gave patrick eaves the w because he gave effort not only that but also gave himself a punchout w so i gave this a 5 out of 10
Best part of this was the hit on Pahlson...clean hit. Dorsett?? That guy belongs in syracuse...or Columbus I guess.
Is this right for Russell? 5'9" and 155 lbs defenseman? My sister is 5'8" and 140lbs. Eaves at 5'11 185 looks like a monster ragdolling the other guy. Why does Columbus continue to employ all these guys like Russell and Dorsett from the local junior high school team? Aint getting them into the playoffs. Good hit by Eaves to start this. Nobody wants to play Detroit in the first round. No actual fight here--visored wrestling match.
Eaves is gutless puke. The announcer says he tough?! Who's he been watching? Look at Russell's stats: 5' 9, 148 lbs. Eaves loses for being such a ferry. He waited until he had the smallest guy in the league before he'd account for himself. Eaves has been a sissy his whole career.
Is it a rule when you live in the state of michigan to become a pussy??? Dorsett was ready to go with him, but Eaves skated away as fast as he could to avoid the beating he was gonna get. then he fights with the smallest guy on the team...... haha.. what a pussy.. take the beating and earn yourself some respect.....
actually eaves moused big time vs dorsett...win eaves..barely
Last time I checked you were allowed to hit in hockey. Win Eaves
Russell has no business dropping the gloves. embarrassing. not worth posting.
Eaves is a puss..... jumping girly Kristine Russell who has all of 2 NHL fights in his life..(including that mugging).. rather than man up with a guy who wanted him Mr. Dorsett. suprised punk howard didnt leave the crease to help him...
