The Stanley Cup-favorite Canadiens were in town and this night the Bruins handled them in every way possible on the ice. The Bs had a 5-1 lead when Mike Komisarek finally got what he asked for: Milan Lucic willingly dropped the gloves. They went toe-to-toe for a bit before Looch took over and dropped Komisarek to a knee. Lucic skated off roaring just as much at the crowd as they did to him.
Prior to this fight, the sophomore stud was catching some flak in the local media for not dropping the gloves yet this season. His first fight of 2008-09 silenced those critics and reminded fans how he’s become a favorite so quickly.
The Bruins went on to score once more, crushing the Habs. Somewhere Bobby Orr’s knees didn’t hurt, if only for a moment.
Media criticism moved on to Georges Laraque after that night, for not taking out Lucic earlier in the game. Laraque responded by dominating Josh Gratton in a scrap a couple of nights later.
Just a monster tilt between Eric Boulton and Colton Orr at MSG. It’s a little early to say it might be fight of the year, but it might be fight of the year. After over a minute of trading blows, Orr still had the energy to smile while skating to the box to the roars of the crowd. As of this post, the fight’s rating is 8.7.
