Throwback: A heated Pavel Datsyuk fights Corey Perry [VIDEO]

It was October 8, 2010 when Detroit Red Wings former star Pavel Datsyuk recorded a Gordie Howe hat trick. He scored a goal, notched an assist, and fought Anaheim Ducks scorer Corey Perry. On opening night, no less.

On a delayed penalty to the Ducks, and after a saved shot on net by the Red Wings, a scrum ensued. Two players that tussled together were Datsyuk and Perry. After Datsyuk swiped Perry’s helmet off his head, the two locked and threw blows.

For a guy with a 4-inch disadvantage in height, Datsyuk held his own. Additionally, he even ended up on top of the then-flipped Perry at the fight’s conclusion. Regardless of the result of the fight, Pavel had a great night as the Red Wings went on to beat the Ducks 4-0. We miss you, Pav!
