Video: Habs’ Moen fights Stars’ Roussel

Jan 2, 2014, 10:47 PM EDT

These teams might not play against each other all the time, but there was considerable animosity between the Montreal Canadiens and Dallas Stars on Thursday.

Take this fight between Canadiens’ forward Travis Moen and Stars’ forward Antoine Roussel early in the second period. Not sure how this got started, because the two had dropped the gloves out of the camera shot, which was focused on another scrum in front of the net.

And what a marathon fight this was, with both players essentially stopping on their own after about 50 seconds.

    Nothing wrong with 2 willing players dropping the glove and going at it. The was a solid fight.

    The Habs need to make adjustments. The teams gf/fa differential was +9 going into tonight’s game. At one time they were 20+. Murray and Bouillon are struggling. Emelin is too but i believe that is temporary. And in terms of the lack of scoring… briere needs to go! He doesnt put out for the money he is earning. Bourque should also be demoted and Bournival put back onto the 2nd line where he actually can score.

      No way to move Briere with that contract. Everyone called it overpaying at the time it was signed, and it looks like they were right. As for the defense, they need to give their young blood a chance. Beaulieu, Tinordi, Morgan Ellis, Dalton Thrower… they have plenty of options and with Murray looking like a post on skates and Boullion a nightmare in his own end it’s pretty stupid of them not to at least explore options. Should probably consider moving some combination of pieces for a big center or winger, too.

    Did anyone call the Montreal police?

    I’m not sure if I hate Roussell or love ’em.
