Draw ... Murray had more shots but Nystrom really tagged him twice in the end.

Posted by Ragtop1day on November 05, 2008 at 08:44 AM

from not sure if they wanted to go to pounding each other...great fight

Posted by gdameo on November 05, 2008 at 10:59 AM

haha good fight and gotta love when Murray grabbed him then let him go. A few seconds go, he was like...oh screw it, let's fight lol

Posted by Reverend Kane on November 05, 2008 at 09:27 AM

Hilarious beginning. Great scrap...have to give a draw after Nystrom's comeback.

Posted by Jake98 on November 05, 2008 at 01:51 AM

2 kd in one fight

Posted by BigRob1 on November 05, 2008 at 12:35 AM

Great fight! probably the fight of the year so far! Great stuff.

Posted by Crooked on November 05, 2008 at 12:21 AM

how did nystrom stay on his feet... what a comeback... I feel bad but I gotta give a draw.

Posted by pmarz1 on November 06, 2008 at 08:46 PM

the flurry by Murray at the start resulted in one clean punch, then later a couple to the back of his helmet, and finally, Nystrom lands one, not two, in the end. Edge to Murray.

Posted by smallito on November 05, 2008 at 03:38 PM

Murray owned the entire fight until he slipped at the end.

Posted by Behn Wilson on November 06, 2008 at 08:01 PM

That's one of the strangest starts to a fight that I've ever seen. The ref instigated the follow through! Nonetheless, a great brawl with Nystrom, after somehow surviving a series of harsh rights and lefts, eventually dropping Murray during a ''hail Mary'' closing exchange. Edge Murray on pure punishment.

Posted by CitizenKein on November 05, 2008 at 02:12 AM

What happened with the other fight? Did they stop because the other one was too good?

Posted by mikebflorida on November 05, 2008 at 09:58 AM

Great fight, not much defense there and Murray landing the better punches gives him the win. Hilarious start to it as they seperate and were going to let the others fight and the others are thinking the same thing so they start throwing. Weird to say the least.

Posted by Juha82 on November 05, 2008 at 01:53 PM

CLEA R win Murray landing good,solid shots. Changing hands like a master-

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on November 05, 2008 at 07:09 AM

Edge to Murray

Posted by DetroitIan on November 05, 2008 at 12:44 AM

Wow WHAT A SCRAP! Real close one but I had to give the edge to Murray. Looks like he landed more bigger harder shots.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on November 05, 2008 at 12:36 PM

Murray was throwing bombs. good fight

Posted by DroppingTheGlov on November 05, 2008 at 05:55 PM

I don't know how anyone can say this was a draw and they must be stupid to say that Nystrom one this fight. Murray whipped the boys ass!

Posted by joedirty19 on November 05, 2008 at 10:38 AM

murray pounds the shit outta this dudee

Murray had Nystrom on the ropes, good recovery for Eric but big win for Murray.

Posted by PastorJ on November 05, 2008 at 12:21 PM

WOW! Great fight. Edge to Murray, but nice comeback by Nystrom.

Posted by b.t.wilson on November 05, 2008 at 08:11 AM

Edge Murray, but wow Nystrom, staying on his skates! Great fight.

Posted by marclebrun on November 05, 2008 at 06:43 PM

Good fight! I Was'nt sure if Nystrom got him on the finish so i watched the end many times and i think Murray just dodged and lost his balance at the end. But WOW!

Posted by smwarpig63 on November 15, 2008 at 02:04 PM

win to murray but nystrom did get a Ko

Posted by perry8888 on November 05, 2008 at 11:50 AM

one of the best fights of the year so far

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on April 23, 2012 at 08:24 PM


Posted by yeahbaby on November 06, 2008 at 06:28 PM

I thought Murray hit Nystroms helmet a lot, which was why Nystrom was off balance but not hurt. Nystrom really tagged him at the end.

Posted by kingpintoo on November 06, 2008 at 01:00 AM

murray more action and nystrom finished. Murray threw in the towel when he got tagged with a very good shot. He either wanted to end it by going down or he was knocked off of his feet but good, so he loses.

Posted by SirYohans on November 05, 2008 at 03:01 PM

TKO Nystrom. I stand by my convictions. Murry fought a great fight and I ain't taking anything away from his effort. Except the win of course.

Posted by domdel on November 06, 2008 at 11:52 PM

nystrom with a tko at the end

Posted by the_gritty_one on November 05, 2008 at 08:09 PM

Huh? Does a knock-down punch count for nothing? Nystrom gets knocked down, then he gets back up and knocks down Murray - who DOESN'T get up! How the hell is that a win for Murray? I don't care if he pummels the guy the whole fight, if he's knocked down by a punch that ends the fight its a win for Nystrom. Peanut gallery be damned

Posted by Canes13 on November 05, 2008 at 08:34 PM

Instant classic based solely on the confusion in the beginning. I mean how often does something that funny happen.

Posted by gmr133 on November 05, 2008 at 12:43 PM

Wait..who's fighting?...are you guys...ok, we'll go...oh, wait...I think those guys are gonna...oh what the hell. Murray dominates the fight. Nystrom might get one lucky punch in at the end, and/or Murray might slip. Win Murray.

Posted by preds321 on November 05, 2008 at 04:03 PM

not entirely sure how Nystrom withstood that early barrage

Posted by Rillettes on November 05, 2008 at 11:10 AM

Nice to see Murray back in the NHL. Didn't do much with the Habs, but I enjoyed him while he was here.

Posted by davebrown21 on November 07, 2008 at 09:04 PM

gave it to murray...he landed more early. nystrom's big left hit murray's helmet, i think. again, another awesome middleweight dance. love 'em!

Posted by Demons_04 on November 05, 2008 at 09:24 PM

That was a pretty akward start to the fight but wow that was a good chuck em scrap. Murray gets the win in the end.

Posted by barnibizer on November 05, 2008 at 02:49 PM

What a fight!! This is what its all about. Love the way Murray shrugs his shoulders and then they go. This fight was all Murray. However, how the hell did Nystrom take those bombs!!!?? Murray is a big fucker!! Altho, forget the Nystrom punch at the end, it looks like it hit Murrays helmet.

Posted by kitcarnut on November 10, 2008 at 02:29 PM

good tilt gave it to murray based on more agressive. frickin wierd start or what?

Posted by TBLightningGuru on November 09, 2008 at 04:41 PM

Awesome fight.. good thing it got started. at the beginning they dropped the gloves, looked at the other scrum.. and said already fine lets go.

Posted by chad420 on November 05, 2008 at 11:26 PM

damn....murray was smokin em....nystom has a good chin & recovery capacity....,impressive...then nystrom blasted him/flash ko...he did hit his knee buckle

Posted by claire alexande on November 06, 2008 at 06:52 PM

nystrom wins...takes a few helmet shots and rocks murray at the end...lots of flames haters here...that's ok

Posted by chelios247 on November 05, 2008 at 01:16 AM
