Edwards is horrendous.

Posted by 98semax on November 02, 2008 at 06:46 AM

As much as I hate Avery, you gotta give him some props for standing up for his teamate. This fight is clearly a draw though even if Ference wanted more of it....

Posted by lakingsfan19 on November 03, 2008 at 09:15 AM

Draw, nothing less than a draw. And Jack Edwards is a fool, That sux bos fans have to listen to that prick all the time.

Posted by J C ALVARADO on November 02, 2008 at 04:17 PM

I was going to ask who the commentator was, but now I know it's Jack Edwards. What an ASSHOLE! Boston fans should be ashamed of that idiot. not much of a fight and I'm glad Avery is no longer a Ranger. Dallas is in trouble.

Posted by Enfrcr77 on November 02, 2008 at 10:34 AM

somebody shoot those dumb a*s announcers!! They suck!!

Posted by leumeister on November 03, 2008 at 01:59 AM

that was barely a fight... what are you people voting on? draw all the way voting as bad as the announcers

Posted by qmchugh on November 02, 2008 at 07:11 AM

great check, crap fight.

Posted by shrk33 on November 02, 2008 at 01:46 AM

Draw. I would have rather have seen Avery and Ott pounded!

Posted by njteech on November 02, 2008 at 12:30 PM

What a horrible call of a bout.....Draw

Posted by RykerHC on November 02, 2008 at 04:54 AM

As much as I'd like to see Avery get pummelled, this one's a draw, each of them landing one semi-punch and Avery with the takedown.

Posted by Poop Jack Pappy on November 02, 2008 at 03:19 PM

The announcer is an idiot. I would like to rip out his voacl chords. Draw

Posted by Juha82 on November 02, 2008 at 09:56 AM

not much here. draw.

Posted by DetroitIan on November 02, 2008 at 08:22 AM

This one's a draw. Unlike when Ference lost to Sidney f-ing Crosby. lol

Posted by SirYohans on November 03, 2008 at 02:16 PM

For alot of people who are bitchin about the announcer, you guys seem to be buying what he's selling. Seriously, Ference won this fight??? Or that little wave Ference did means he won? DRAW

Posted by PastorJ on November 02, 2008 at 09:34 PM

Draw. Only a couple of punches thrown, but good to see Ference giving it to the agitators.

Posted by mink007 on November 02, 2008 at 07:37 AM

You gotta give props to Avery right in their..Shit fight draw

Posted by Humper on November 02, 2008 at 11:30 AM

Ference wanted to beat Avery, but he didn't. Draw. Those announcers are amazing.

Posted by giantsfrey on February 07, 2009 at 10:23 PM

Avery used his classic little "pull the guy's leg out to make him fall and end the fight" move. i hate that... the fight looked like maybe a slight edge to avery, as painful as it is for me to say it though :( but, of course, Ference gets bonus points for that hit so i call it a draw

Posted by Behn Wilson on November 02, 2008 at 10:13 PM

''He wants to rip that guy limb from limb and who wouldn't want to see that'' Great, and I mean great, hit.

Posted by mrunohoo on November 02, 2008 at 01:41 AM

if the stars get tootoo they'd have the three biggest peices of trash in the league, to go along with avery and ott. i think i'm going to make that hit my screen saver for a while.

Posted by staceyb on November 02, 2008 at 05:30 AM

Avery's agitating antics backfired on the Stars last night as it seemed to get a better game out of the Bruins. Dallas is a much better team than they're showing but Marty Turco is having a terrible start in goal. The Bruins play by play man is lousy. Where have you gone, Fred Cusick?

Posted by Lister100 on November 02, 2008 at 01:43 PM

Where did they find this announcer? He sounds like a half retarded double y chromosome ex-convict. We all like a good hockey fight, but settle down.

Posted by lowbrow78 on November 02, 2008 at 06:58 AM

I'd like to see Ference rip the play by play guy limb from limb

Posted by dtcbob on November 02, 2008 at 02:37 AM

I dont know how the announcers were claiming that was a by the rules hit. He left his feet and jumped at him. That is not within the rules.

Posted by matthewsparks on November 22, 2008 at 10:07 AM

Avery stinks it up again. This guy is not only a crappy fighter, but is also one of the most classless players in the NHL.

Posted by Wensinkfan on November 02, 2008 at 02:44 PM

Jack Edwards needs to find another line of work. Its no fun hearing him for the whole game. Ference got a few shots in before being taken down...just so hard to follow the game with this announcer.

Posted by groovemessenger on November 04, 2008 at 03:08 PM

Seemed like Avery (who had a chance to go with anyone else on Boston throughout the game) got involved in something more than he was able to handle. He gets out of it pretty quickly with a puss take-down, and then gets up and does his tough guy model pose. Really, I loved Dallas last year and they have some great players. But this Ott/Avery crap is getting really old. They got their head handed to them last week against Chicago, and wouldn't get off the ice at the end of the game, trying to disrupt the Hawks fan salute. The Stars have so much talent, why are they choosing to c!$k it up so much. League wide strategy: Let's all ignore Avery and maybe he goes away.

Posted by bruiser11 on November 02, 2008 at 01:53 AM

avery and ott are 2 classless players.least avery fought is scared 2 fight lucic so all he can do is yap at him while the linesmen are conviently around..the whole nhl should give those 2 beatins 4 the entire season..silence that cheap crap they pull with fists in them mouths.I also liked how the refs never gave nidey a penalty when cheap shot ott wouln't drop his gloves with him. ott does that and hopes the linesmen are there and doesn't get pounded.

Posted by bleight14 on November 02, 2008 at 11:43 AM

First off, Ott had that coming to him the whole game. Second, I'm giving the win, slightly, to Ference, more for the fact that he trew a couple punches, and when Avery thought he might actually get hit, he went for the tackle, way to be a man Avery.

Posted by carts22 on November 02, 2008 at 05:21 PM

im a dallas fan but not a good scrap by avery, and nice hit by ference

Posted by Clark75 on November 03, 2008 at 10:33 AM

Avery is such a shit bag. He knows he's going to get worked here so he grabs Ference's leg for the take down then tries to throw a punch on the way down. WIN FERENCE. He connected with more shots and didn't go for the cheap take down. Avery is a BITCH!

Posted by Jellyczar on November 04, 2008 at 08:32 AM

Ference edges Avery the idiot.

Posted by Spanky_Jazz on November 03, 2008 at 06:41 AM

Awesome hit to set it all off. Then Ference gets the edge over Avery. Nice.

Posted by BigPapa08 on November 02, 2008 at 09:45 AM

Ference landed a couple more than Avery, although not much of a fight give the win to Ference for the sequence and for Avery trying ti find to smallest Bruin on the ice.

Posted by Ragtop1day on November 02, 2008 at 10:40 AM

lot of cheap stuff with the stick going on with just a little bit of video....average fight

Posted by BostonBruins08 on November 02, 2008 at 01:33 PM

avery sticking up for ott. ference won after a GREAT hit on ott. kind of weak fight.

Posted by Muscles on November 02, 2008 at 10:32 PM

Nice shift for Boston -- taking out Ott with an open ice hit, then getting to beat up Avery too.

Posted by donkinbuck on November 02, 2008 at 12:08 PM

Love it when Avery gets his ass kicked!!

Posted by jano on November 02, 2008 at 01:11 AM

Fuck I hate announer HOMER-ism. Win Ference. Avery tried to trip him up when he realized he was going to get his ass kicked. Still, good of Avery to challenge Ference after putting Ott in the train tracks.

Posted by billy jack on November 02, 2008 at 07:32 PM

ference with the clear win,not even close.

Posted by pmarz1 on November 06, 2008 at 08:04 PM

fortunately for Avery, he grabs Ference's left leg and takes him down cause he was eating several punches. As for Jack Edwards, you all need to just sit back and laugh at him. The guy is a riot to listen to even if he doesnt have a clue as to what he's screaming about.

Posted by siouxfan1 on November 02, 2008 at 04:59 PM

Draw my A**, Avery lost plain and simple!!!

Posted by tristan16 on November 02, 2008 at 09:15 PM

Steve (big cry baby) Ott get clocked by Ference and thats where all the backstabbers (Sean Avery hits people from behind because he is a pus**) I glad Ference gave Avery the business and he was lucky that Lucic did nt Avery the business......Ference wins this one.

Posted by JETTA KNIGHT on November 02, 2008 at 09:53 PM

avery didn't really land anything, ference got a few in. who says its a draw? ference landed punches, especially to the jaw with those jabs. avery missed except maybe as they were falling. ference had control pretty much the whole time. it's time there was a web site agreement on what a win is. some people say it's who falls on top, some says its the amount of punches. some people see punches that aren't there and then completely miss others. it shouldn't be about who your favorite fighter is either. just cause both are swinging doesn't mean they are connecting either. if a guy punches the other guy 50 times and a take down lands him on the bottom...he still won. unless it's a knock down punch. take downs don't count. that's giving up. crap fight though.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on November 02, 2008 at 10:11 AM

Ference gets the nod. Avery needs to go play in Russia. im tired of his antics.

Posted by Hell of a TILT on November 03, 2008 at 01:24 PM

Kudos to Ference........He runs over Ott and gives it to Avery......That's some old time hockey!!

Posted by walrus655321 on November 03, 2008 at 08:22 PM

WAAAAA! I don't like the announcers...WAAAA! Judge the fights, don't be little vaginas like Ott.

Posted by Thunder Cat 2 on November 02, 2008 at 12:18 PM

Short fight but was still good, ference wins this one

Posted by keithshoo on November 02, 2008 at 07:47 AM

Ference gets the win for the hit on Ott. That guy had it coming to him. Beauty of an open ice hit. Text book

Posted by bulldog85 on November 03, 2008 at 10:59 PM

k first things first...good seeing avery get punched in his face...just wanted to clear that up quick, and i give ference the win because he punched that little weisel...AVERY'S A FUCKING COWARD

Posted by eanwilo on December 04, 2008 at 02:30 AM

clear win by ference. it ends because avery takes a few short lefts to the face doesnt like it then pulls ferences legs out from under him. typical b*tch move by a complete p*ssy

Posted by Pittsburgh Dan on November 02, 2008 at 09:30 PM

Ference, where did that come from? Last year he was handled by "Sid the Kid"

Posted by hipchecker20 on November 01, 2008 at 10:57 PM

Doesn't Dallas have an actual fighter? Ott and Avery are really pests.

Posted by nofin22 on November 17, 2008 at 05:50 PM

ference definately

Posted by bruins34 on November 02, 2008 at 06:05 PM

Can't believe I am saying this, but Ference won this one. He's not known for dropping the mitts (ask Crosby), but he definitely acquitted himself well here. Avery is a scumbag, but at least he stuck up for Ott (who seems to be an even bigger bag of sh** than Avery). As for our play by play guy....sigh....don't blame Bruins fans. It's not our fault. There's nothing wrong with being a homer, I just wish Edwards didn't sound like such a tool while he was doing it.

Posted by Towmater on November 02, 2008 at 06:00 PM

I now love Ference, wish he could have got more in before Avery fell.

Posted by Chezbeck666 on April 28, 2009 at 09:08 PM

Ference dealt a helluva great hit to get things started off, and Avery (of course) tracks him down and gets his @ss handed to him. At least he had the nerve to start his own fight this time.

Posted by 8BostonRocker24 on November 02, 2008 at 12:32 PM

My favorite types of fight. Steve Ott was taking runs at Bruins all night, Andrew Ference sees the chance to lay a clean, open ice hit on Ott and takes it. Sean Avery takes acceptation to the hit, comes over and defends his teammate.

Posted by Bruins29 on November 02, 2008 at 11:32 AM

Ference definitely threw and landed more punches, including some sneaky left hands. Win Ference in a quick fight.

Posted by JCeltic on November 03, 2008 at 02:07 PM

Short fight. Would of liked to of seen it last longer. Regardless, Ference with the win. **HEADS UP TO EVERYONE** Last I checked...this site was called ... NOT Shut the FUCK up about the announcers, and just watch / rate the god damn fights. Who gives a flying FUCK how annoying the announcers's IRRELEVANT to the fucking FIGHT.

Posted by bruins rule on November 14, 2008 at 11:03 AM

ference absolutely gets the win in this fight.he was much more active.

Posted by jdoherty on February 02, 2009 at 07:20 PM

The Big Bad B's are back and Jack Edwards is establishing himself as the best play by play guy in the NHL. Now that's how a beat down of a putz like Avery should be called!

Posted by anc2514 on November 02, 2008 at 07:38 AM

Avery won, you fools. and got the takedown.

Posted by HMai802915 on February 28, 2013 at 06:46 PM

How can anyone say that either Ference or Avery won this fight?? A couple of jabs exchanged and then they fall to the ice!!!! Im an Avery fan and the only reason why I voted for him here is because after reading some of the outrageous comments like "Avery got beat down" is ridiculous!! In all honesty, no one won this bout!!!

Posted by DARCY T on November 02, 2008 at 05:56 AM

wtf.ference a winner?how??its draw but if i would forced to choose a winner it wouldnt be ference

Posted by gmathiak123 on November 02, 2008 at 08:32 PM

Avery wins with the bulldoser move

Posted by sjovocop55 on November 08, 2008 at 01:16 PM

Ference is s di*k and should have been given a charging penalty. Way to go Avery, you are the man.

Posted by patsfan1152 on January 01, 2009 at 12:12 PM

andrew ference is the man

Posted by CocoQuaker7 on November 02, 2008 at 08:56 AM

Rip that guy limb-from-limb.....Jack Edwards is aweful.

Posted by illukka on November 03, 2008 at 07:22 AM

nice hit!

Posted by blackngold on November 02, 2008 at 02:10 PM

Andrew Ference is the fucking man! Laid one motherfucker out and beat the other one up.

Posted by snowboardinmatt on November 02, 2008 at 03:36 PM

Ok let me start by saying that I am a huge Bruins fan. Having said that, I also hate Jack Edwards. But I have to say I hate him a bit less after this game because if you watch the 9 minute video on YouTube about everything that was going on last night, Edwards made his opinion known, he did not hold back his resentment for Ott and Avery, two of the biggest insults to the NHL and I respect him for having the balls to do that. Also, win Ference (surprise surprise).

Posted by pynkfloid3 on November 06, 2008 at 04:37 PM

avery is a p*ssy

Posted by TBLightningGuru on November 09, 2008 at 04:12 PM

Ference with a jersey jab win. Jack Edwards is a tool. what an idiot.

Posted by Demons_04 on November 02, 2008 at 04:11 PM

Andrew Ference definately gets the win in the short fight. Avery should be embarrased of his performance

Posted by jdhoff20 on December 06, 2008 at 05:02 PM

im just voting for ferance cauz i hate Avery

Posted by brawler03 on November 02, 2008 at 02:50 PM

Ference with the win. The same Ference that lost to Crosby last year. Avery should be embarrassed. Probably the most biased announcers I've ever heard though.

Posted by gmr133 on November 03, 2008 at 01:13 PM

GREAT hit by Ference, and then Ott does what you're supposed to do--he goes into the Bruins zone and dishes out a big hit of his own. Then we all have to wait while Avery stops dating one of the Olsen stick twins and starts a fight where he gets punched in the face three times by a guy who doesn't fight. Win Ference.

Posted by marinermoose38 on November 02, 2008 at 09:20 PM

Gotta love Andew Ference!! (Even though he used to play for the Lames)

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on January 16, 2009 at 03:00 PM

Ference beats down the chickenshit. Good for everybody.

Posted by goon10 on November 02, 2008 at 09:18 PM

That was like a dream shift... Ott gets hammered and Avery gets punched in the face. In a perfect world that would happen at least once a game.

Posted by NYIslanders587 on November 04, 2008 at 04:41 PM

I hate Avery. Glad he lost this fight.

Posted by Sweeney2112 on November 02, 2008 at 05:02 PM

Cheap shot hit if you ask me.....
