Another Fighting Casualty
By: Jeff Little • November 27th, 2008
Per Arace in Puck-Rakers — Dorsett broke his finger in the fight with Carcillo in Period 1 and was placed on IR immediately after the game. Kris Russell has been recalled from ‘Cuse — maybe some help on the point in the PP.
We need to stay out of fights — Boll, Torres and now Dorsett — all significant down time due to fights. Maybe our guys just need to learn how to punch properly. . . This one is strange, as both Carcillo and Dorsett shed their helmets with their gloves before starting up.
A native of the SF Bay Area, my first exposure to hockey was the SF/Oakland/California Golden Seals, including Charlie Finley and the white skates. Fast forward to the late 1980's when Gretzky and the Kings came up to the Bay Area for an exhibition game at the Oakland Coliseum Arena, for which we had glass seats. I was at the first San Jose Sharks game in the Cow Palace, and followed them for their first few pathetic years, before moving to Columbus in 1994. I attended the first pro-NHL rally downtown, and have been a season ticket holder since Day 1, wife & I are active in the Jacket Backers, and son is an avid fan as well. I cover the Jackets for Inside Hockey, and contribute regularly to a variety of hockey sites. I maintain contact with the Jackets organization, and like to dig into stories, bringing a fresh, and sometimes irreverent perspective to hockey.
