I wouldn't say the fight was useless... Laraque fought immediately after the Isles 3rd goal... he was trying to spark the team as we were playing poorly at the time...

The thought and the effort to get something going was there, but it didn't work out. It took the Streit highstick later on Kovalev to really wake our team up.
