Bieksa Taken Down With One Punch

from Gordon McIntyre of The White Towel,

Kevin Bieksa was 2-0 in fights this season, but he took one on the button in the first period Saturday night and didn’t return to the game.

Tom Kostopoulos, fresh off serving a six-game suspension for breaking the jaw of Detroit defenceman Brad Stuart with a shoulder to the head, was jamming at Roberto Luongo after the Canucks goalie had covered up the puck.

Bieksa and Kostopoulos dropped the gloves, each threw two or three blows that missed, then Kostopoulos connected, buckling Bieksa’s knees.

The Canucks defender looked wobbly and was escorted to the dressing room.

continued and watch the fight below…

Kostopoulos once again proves he adds very little of any real value to our sport. Gotta love how he dropped to one knee to put his shoulder at Luongo’s head level as he was diving in at the start of the scrum. If Edler wasn’t there, I’m sure he would have connected.
