wasn't even a fight, how can anyone pick a winner?? homers that why

Mara definetly going the huggy route. This IS one of the worst no punch crapfests of the year but not THE worst. At least there was a Mara cheapshot to rile up the crowd beforehand.

did someone call that a "fight"...? I had to weigh in because I'm tired of reading the garbage from MCB. This comment field is for grown-ups who happen to have a passion for hockey, and a fair amount of intelligence. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but let's try and use some common sense, ok...? Enough said.

way to go after him and hug him. Draw.

non fight,boynton wanted to go,mara was looking for the refs...mcbs off his medication again

wow, rangers and panthers. somebody should have fought to reprieve both teams of such a sh*tty display of combat skills. Defending a player on your team, comes with responsibilities. One, make sure it's deserved. In this case Boynton's mate crumbled and really played out the drama on a cross check near the half wall, made it look a lot worse than it was.... I mean he got to his knees rather quickly. Two, check the setting. Tie game, Mara was being called for it, the guy wasn't dead (just playing dead), face-off in zone. Instead Boynton takes bad penalty and evens it up, brings the face-off out, and doesn't do a damn thing. What a waste of time and effort. A great example of a player trying to abide by the code, but failing to do so.

I just don't get Mara this year. Last year he played soft just like Rosy. This year hes stepped it up and played with a meaness and edge to his game. Except when its time to drop the gloves. I think he would hug on Crosby to not have to fight him. Anyway this shouldve been 2 for roughing. Crap fight. Draw. MCB- I can understand why you hate on the Rangers being Flyers division rivals, but the Bruins? Makes no sense. I bet you can't wait for tomorrow when Orr gives Cote his usual beatdown. HAHAHA.

what a bunk fight.....what is the fu*king deal with all this hugging bullsh*t

Posted by giantsfrey on February 14, 2009 at 03:09 PM

that looked really dangerous and vicious when mara crosschecked that dude into the boards. i thought he should have got a big misconduct just for that. i think boynton did the right thing going after him there; it was a dirty shot however, boynton failed to deliver any kind of assbeating, so the fight was a hugfest draw. idk who was the instigator of the hugging, but i will assume it was mara since he usually likes to break up fights rather than participate in them

Posted by kevylaw on February 15, 2009 at 02:51 PM

Watching Flyers Rangers now and Mara just went with Asham. Refs came in quick and announcers said Mara has had hand injury. Went straight to locker room after another hug fest. That being said, and its no excuse, he shouldnt be cross checking people from behind if your not physically capable of defending your actions. Meanwhile, this bout shouldn't even qualify as a fight. Draw and rated a 2

Posted by lovejoy on February 16, 2009 at 03:47 AM

I haven't known, that price for crosschecking is one big hug.....

Posted by Juha82 on February 14, 2009 at 03:02 PM

no winner.

very boring fight.

Posted by kimocoyote on February 15, 2009 at 11:19 AM

No fight. Mara was like that when he was with Coyotes. Would act like a "bad ass" until his bluff was called.

Posted by smasham on February 14, 2009 at 02:40 PM

Mara is a fag

Posted by clydefrog on February 15, 2009 at 01:51 PM

does anybody remember these 2 guys were traded for each other...

Posted by COLTONORR=GOD on February 14, 2009 at 03:19 AM

Mara is king of the huggybear. I am still waiting for him to actually attempt to throw a punch in a fight so far in his pitful 3 fights. hes a solid defenseman but my god

Posted by Behn Wilson on February 14, 2009 at 07:48 PM

Even though the fight was essentially a draw, I'm giving it to Boynton for justifiably responding to a series of cheap-shot cross-checks by Mara.

Posted by DARCY T on May 17, 2009 at 01:01 PM

mara should be banned for being such a pussy

Posted by cuptonj on February 14, 2009 at 02:55 PM

Mara's real tough with the stick but when it comes time to drop them he just wants to hug.What a waste of time.

Posted by mcb789 on February 14, 2009 at 02:20 AM

good to see mara get his ass kick in. another ranger who cant fight. boynton with the easy win in this bout. i know all you bias ranger fans will vote for mara in this fight. RANGER FANS MOTHERS ALL SUCK!!! RANGERS SUCK!!! BRUINS SUCK!!

Posted by evol_lurk on February 16, 2009 at 04:27 AM

What was Mara doing, trying to avoid a major fighting?

Posted by PredsFan189 on February 16, 2009 at 01:36 AM
