Six minutes into the first period, the two got into a bout right off a face off and, well, it was like the Energizer bunny of hockey fights. It just kept going and going and going and ... you get the idea. After the video, we'll give it the full second-by-second breakdown that it deserves.
Now let's take a deeper look at this video. Feel free to follow along at home.
:04 - These guys were ready to go, so much so that Letourneau-Leblond threw his gloves a good 30 feet all the way across the red line. Maybe that can be added to the skills competition at the next All-Star Game.
:18 - After
:50 - Janssen, the more experienced of the two, has been landing most of the punches thus far. At this point, Letourneau-Leblond finally lands a good one, dislodging Janssen's helmet a bit.
1:00 - Janssen momentarily loses his balance and it looks as if this fight is going to come to an end. But no, he's got the balance and we're barely halfway through. At this point, the referees need to turn this into a boxing match and send both fighters to their corners so they can catch their breath before the next round starts.
1:05 - That reminds me, the NHL needs to hire "ring girls" for fights.
1:20 - The referees are circling like vultures now, ready to stop this fight but, impressively, neither fighter is tiring all too much.
1:28 - Janssen actually signals to the refs to keep their distance. That is awesome.
2:05 - These guys are still throwing big shots. Sean Avery would have turtled three weeks ago.
2:15 - You can tell the guys in the TV truck are out of interesting camera angles when they go to the camera directly above the fighters. Can't say I've seen that angle before.
2:43 - Janssen is the first one to lose his helmet. That took a while.
2:48 - That must have been some kind of code to end the fight, as the referees finally step in nearly three minutes later. The two fighters get a well-deserved standing ovation from their teammates and the crowd.
