Now that’s how you supposed to fight! From now on, that’s how you fight! That goes for everyone except Alex Burrows.
The line brawl between the Canucks and Blackhawks on Sunday night had a little bit of everything. Cheap shots, straight lefts, body slams and hair pulling. The Canucks’ Alex Burrows decided he didn’t want any of what the Hawks’ Duncan Keith was giving so he decided to man up, grab Keith’s hair and hold on for dear life. Witness his shame as well as some quality brawlin’.
Keith said, “My little sister never even pulled my hair when I was a kid. It’s kind of comical when you have a grown man trying to pull your hair on the ice.” No. This is comical on the ice. Freedom hater.
Forward Adam Burish was offended that someone would mess with Keith’s haircut. Especially a nice haircut like Duncan has. “I think that’s stupid the way he was pulling [Keith's] hair. Especially a nice haircut like Duncan has.”
Good on Ben Eager for keeping hockey fighting respectable and teaching the kids that there’s a right way to beat that ass. He worked Kevin Bieksa’s ass like a rented mule. Burrows should be ashamed. Hair pulling just embarrasses us all.
