That was an INTENTIONAL boarding by Boyle. Never saw him do that. He totally dominated the fight.
Nice of Nash to watch his teammate get his a** kicked, BUT, he did yell at him though !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wonder if Boyle would have done that to Dorsett or anyone who does no how to fight. Hope there is a rematch !!!!
It was a beating that should have never happened. Brassard had no choice but to fight him. Brassard should not be fighting. It would be like Lucic fighting Boyle. Lucic would be called a bully even though he has as many points as Boyle people would be calling him a bully. It was a disgrace. Why didnt Boyle go after Nash!!!!!!
As someone who was actually AT the game, and has more context. Columbus was taking liberties all game. This game was chippy from the get go, especially will Boll trying to start stuff several times and getting special attention from the refs between whistles.
Game started with an Illegal elbow to the head on Thornton by Boll in the first 20 seconds, and by the time this fight happened they were down 5-0
Boyle was speared prior to the hit on Brassard, Brassard embellished the hit and both players agreed to go.
Boyle didn't jump a defenseless guy and the fight was already in progress before Brassard went to his knees. Brassard was still engaged until the fight was broken up.
Sounds like some sad Blue Jacket fans can't stand to see their team get their team getting their butts handed to them both in goals and fights.
Boyle fights once in a blue moon, and he is far from a dirty player.
Maybe people should have all the facts about lead to a fight before crying about someone being dirty.
