Once the gloves are off I don't think anyone should step in unless it's to stop the fight because one guy is badly hurt and the other guy either doesn't realize it or doesn't care.
That being said, there seemed to me to be enough time for someone to step in BEFORE the gloves came off. If I'm a Ranger and I see Carcillo getting into it with Gaborik - I get over there right away BEFORE Carcillo can cause any more trouble.
Honestly I would rather have seen an immediate reaction for when Asham ran Lundqvist than Gaborik and Carcillo. Gaborik chose to fight - that's his battle. No excuse for not getting on Asham.
Not that running Lundqvist with no consequence is a new thing, but that would have been a good moment to change the precedent.
