Dan Girardi Fights Andrew Ladd To Stick Up For Staal (Video)

Last season Dan Girardi was the goat for many New York Rangers fans when he failed to step in and fight for Marian Gaborik against Dan Carcillo.  Tonight he sought to erase some of the remnants of that event when he stuck up for his Marc Staal.  On the play Andrew Ladd had a clean hard hit on Staal that would result in Marc hitting neck/shoulder first into the boards and with no hesitation Girardi went over to defend his partner.  

In the fight Girardi likely broke his nose and did not return to action, but those are moves that bring a team together.
