I love the Gordie Howe hat trick. So today Five for Fighting Monday features a hat trick of the first three GH hat tricks of the season.
Note that so far the teams with a player getting a Howe are 3 - 0 on the season.
First Howe of the season is Pavel Datsyuk.
It cracks me up that people actually voted Datsyuk the winner of the fight on Hockey Fights. Perry's no idiot, he wasn't going to pound that guy, he knew the price would be too high, both on and off the ice. You can tell he is sand-bagging. But the best part is how excited the Wings announcers are during the whole fight, like Datsyuk is their new tough guy.
Up next is Kris Versteeg...
This fight was a lot like me and that girl Wendy dancing at our first jr high school dance; awkward, ugly and ultimately uninteresting.
So moving along.
Five for Fighting Monday's run when I feel like running them, usually on Monday but you never know! Keep you're head on a swivel.
