Datsyuk vs. Perry

Pavel Datsyuk needed a five minute major for fighting to get the Gordie Howe hat trick.  He succeeded when he dropped the gloves against Corey Perry tonight.

update 10:29pm, replaced the original video with one that has better quality.

So Paul, any stats on how many Lady Byng winners have Gordie Howe hat tricks?

HA! good call Jen. Pav is just amazing. I’m shocked there weren’t more penalties called in this game. What a disgrace the ducks are.

That was awesome.  Perry probably thought he was pulling a Carcillo when he and Datsyuk got paired up but he ended up getting beat up by Lady Byng.  Perry is a punk.  He’s always reminded me of Scott Farcus from A Christmas Story.

Babbles’s positive spin on the Ericsson situation: “It’ll be good for Kindl to get in a game early. That’s important for a young guy.”

Ech.

Osrt, that sounds to me like the Ducks announcers saying a big positive for the ducks tonight was that “they stuck together”.  Grasping at straws…

As a Sharks fan, all I can say is…

Nice work, Datsyuk.  Perry’s not so tough once he drops his gloves and stick and can’t resort to running goalies and kicking guys, eh?

Good call. Datsyuk plyed with a different edge last season (leading some of us to ask if he got tired of Byngs). Maybe he wants to avoid nomination this year..

Screw the Lady Byng.  The Gordie Howe Hat Trick is worthier.

He should get a medal for service to humanity for fighting Corey Perry. I don’t think even Ducks fans like him.

What’s worse than picking a fight with a 4 time Lady Byng Trophy winner?

Losing.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

What a guy! 
Pavel Datsyuk is an unsung team leader. 
The other guys have to look at themselves and say:  “Man, if Pav, the guy with perhaps the most talent in all the hockey world, can do that, so should I!”
