Crap call with the instigator. How can the refs be so aweful? Clearly both dropped the gloves at the same time. An instigator penalty here is ridiculous. You could give Shelly the instigator for delivering the hit that caused the fight but that wouldn't be right either. Makes as much sense as lugnuts on a wedding cake! Some people on this board are so tiring. How can you say it was a dirty hit or high hit. Crosscheck? Yeah everyone crosschecks with one hand on the stick. The d pinches with his head down, Shelly cleans his clock with a clean, legal and GOOD hit and finishes his check and people on here who obviously never played any meaningful hockey call it a high hit? That's as pathetic as the intigator call. Come on homers. Props to Boyle for sticking up for a teamate but it was a clean hit on a normal play that happens all the time. No more than 5 for fighting for each. Truly pathtic by the refs and some serious morons on this site.
Some of you people on here are pathetic. Lets see sedinfan and wakeupthedead. Is it suddenly unusual for a team mate to stick up for another...even on a clean it...get a life sedinfan. Props to Boyle, who is not afighter to stick up for his team! Boogeyman will remember this and take care of business accordingly. Who is Avery hiding from???? Wheres Carillo??
Even though Boyle is big, he really isn't a fighter. I don't know why people are dogging him. He's good, he did a noble thing here. Too bad the Boogie man is hurt, he always fights with Shelley.
Also... That was such a bad call giving him an instigator. But... I'll take the 7-0 win.
I don't understand the hatred for Avery... The Flyers have had, and still hose the dirtiest players in the NHL. whatever... Shelley with the win.
Good for Boyle to stand up for Gilroy for getting cross checked in the face. For all you retards who are saying it was a clean hit, get shelleys dick out of your mouth and look again. shelleys a great fighter though and easily won this won. but the instigator was pure bs
How many times has this happened this year and no penalties handed out. Consistency does not exist in the NHL with penalties........Kudos for Boyle (non-fighter) sticking up for his teamate after a high cheap shot by Shelley Long. Boyle challenges and Shelley Long wins in a easy win. I guess Shelley Long feels tough with no Boogy man. Flyer fans suck a$$....
