Other Penalties: Chara received a roughing; Vinny Lecavalier a hooking.
CHARA PUNCH AIR 3 on 4.... Artyukhin use good jab chara is just tall is not a good fighter
Artyukhin a superheavyweight? Not quite Jack but he is a big boy though. Chara tries to make the Russian pay for picking on Krecji but, while active, Artyukhin cleverly hides behind his face shield, delivers a well-timed jeresy-jab, and wrestles Chara to the ice. Draw.
cheap shot by Chara more active but he hit a lot of air Arty w/a few decent jabs draw
First, Chara doesn't engage Artyukin face to face but from behind. That initial, "sucker" face wash is the only contact in this non-fight. Then Chara proceeds to do his best impression of a windmill. Artyukhin, the stronger of the two, just holds him off. Had Chara engaged Artyukhin face to face like a man instead of from behind like a sucker maybe we could have seen these two really go. I have been watching Lightning hockry for years. Artyukhin has never lost a fight. Ever. The Boston anouncers are the bigest bunch of ass kissin' homers I have ever heard. Hope that Boston goes out in four in the first round.
If thats what bruins fans are hanging there hat on these days good luck. Typical Chara fight nothing going on and everyone falls down. The whole scrum started because Lucic cant handle getting hit.
draw. Jack Edwards is the new Rick Jenerette. Homer from hell.
Well I don't think that air 6 inches in front of Artyukhin's face is going to mess with Chara again, he really showed that air who's boss.
Homers vs homers in the voting here. Apparently, more Bruins homers than Lightning homers on the sight. Big Z starts with an ambush and maybe scored with 2 punches, maybe! Hard to tell from the camera angle. Arty hangs in there and scores a couple good jersey jabs, which last time I checked, still hurt if you get hit in the right spot. Arty finishes by rag-dolling big Z and the two giants tumble to the ice. Draw at best, no clear cut winner you bunch of homers.
Hmmm....57% win Chara= Bruin bias or idiot voters This was a draw, both landed a couple and Chara goes down, how can that be a win for Chara? The voting disgusts me yet again.
Draw. Not much landed, both got a couple in. Can't say Artyukhin won because he didn't, and the same goes for Chara. All I as is that people vote on the fight, not there like or dislike of a player. all I see is a bunch of cry babies about Artyukhin wearing visor, get over it. whats with Chara's cheapshots to the back of Artyukhin head with his fist and stick?
Charas punches didnt really seem to land. Artyukhin tagged big Z a couple times as well. I guess im going to have to go with a Draw.
I got excited when I heard these two fought. First of all, Chara is one of the toughest fighters in the league. He just doesn't fight much - cause he is too valuable. Artyukhin is kind of an unknown. He is extremely strong and can also play. It would be good to see how a unvisored Artyukhin would do in a 'staged' fight against a real tough guy. Chara got the jump on Artyukhin early but that second jersey-jab by Artyukhin looked like it really caught Chara by surprise and stunned him a little. Artyukhin got the takedown. I have not really seen Chara out-muscled in a fight before. I think if this fight went toe-to-toe from a draw - when they were both prepared - I have a hunch that Artyukhin might be the real deal and would shock the world with a win. Having said that, if it was against a Godard, Belak, or Laraque - I don't think he would win. Crazy?
capt z reminds me of the kid in nineth grade who 6' 2" but didnt have an inch of coordination draw zzzzzz.
I love Z and I agree that if he wasn't so valuable to the B's, he would be a monster. One thing that I often see with him is that he loses his balance way to easily but that might be more because he is 6'9". I say draw.
Edwards is the man no matter what you guys say. he just adds to the emotion in boston. That is how Boston announcers are, if tehy aren't biast towards the Boston team, they can't be a Boston announcer. Artukin got lucky here. chara fell back, but still managed to take atukin down with him.
chara with the win hey mcb did the bruins win the game?
Not much at all here. Chara looked better but he didn't land much.
Chara Wins. Arty has not rly punch. Chara punch`s the fck visor.
I'm going with Chara on this one for the simple fact that if Arty didn't have a visor, Chara's punches would have hit him square in the nose. Call me crazy, but I can't give a guy that wears a visor the win because of a couple of jersey jabs.
how can any 1 say chara did not win this fight?
For those of you who commented on the fact that Chara didnt land any of his punches,did you think that maybe he didnt wanna break his hand the way Lucic broke his on Mike Brown's helmet? Artukhin wants to play with an edge,let him take off the damn thick plastic shield.Chara didnt land anything because he couldnt !!!!!!!!! R2's face shield had him blocked. Anyways,win Chara.And a word to Artukhin........either take off the shield,or put on a Tutu.
I wouldn't count those light jabs. Chara got maybe one or two punches in. Win Chara. Artyukhin should leave the visor for non-fighters...
this site is becoming so ridiculuos, nothing ever but criticism for almost every fight. If two guys dont practically kill each other and there is no blood people cry and moan about the quality of the fight, the quality and integrity of the fighters. Its a fight man!! its unpredictable its emotional and its on skates. Take your Grandmas advice and 'if you have nothing nice to say...dont say anything at all!"
Chara with the edge here due to being the aggressor. No real damage done to either fighter YOU KNOW, I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP MENTIONING THE NAMES OF THE IDIOTS POSTING ON THIS SITE. THAT IS WHAT THEY LIVE FOR!!! IT'S THE ONLY RECOGNITION THESE LOSERS GET AND THE REASON THEY TALK OUT OF THEIR ASSS!!! IGNORE THEM!!
And I will quote directly from Laraque's mouth "Chara is the strongest guy in this league" Not a very fun fight out of the 3 to watch.. Chara had a slight edge.. the other guy..was wearing a visor.. talk about tough......GOOD stuff to see Chara dropping the gloves..hands down norris trophy winner...
I would have given this a tie but I'll give chara credit for fighting someone with a visor. Artyukhin needs to figure it out......... dont be a fighter and wear a visor cause someone is gunna get hurt. Win Chara.
Artyukhin good but Chara wins..
Gotta call this one a draw. Neither landed much of anything. Chara was the more aggressive and active fighter but losing his balance and being taken down evened up the fight in my eyes.
As usual, Arty gets his butt kicked by someone his own size. Lucky Z got in when he did because Lucy would've got ten clocked by Arty as he was looking for him. No damage done but Arty never thru a punch, just looked shell shocked that a fellow foreigner was feeding him fists of fury.
Chara wins easily. Visor boy should wear a cage, too
Chara with the win Those of you who feel the need to take your cheap shots at Americans, maybe while your at it, you should stop taking handouts(i.e. foreign aid for all you clueless morons)from us. mcb and bruiseyoureye, I see your mama's are still at it but now they are taking it up the arse! You two can practice that as well since your pathetic habs s.u.c.k and arent worth watching.
Chara with the edge but good on Artyukhin for doing it. I firmly believe that Chara could be the number 1 fighter in the league if he wasn't so absolutely valuable to his team doing everything else. Like my Wilson brother said, an angry Chara is someone you do not want to mess with. Ask Vinny.
Nice shield..should be an extra penalty. Nice to see the captain throwing leather.
Chara did not ***** jump him, he pushed him then Artyukhin went right back at him, watch it again
the4thliner - been watching lightning hockey for years?? hahaha, man thats a long time. first of all, artyukhin has had what 5 fights?? so your point of his undefeated record means nothing. and secondly, if you followed a real team that had some sort of tradition to it, you would understand jack edwards enthusiasm. everyone hates on the guy because they're jealous that they can't get as pumped about a team as he does. of course hes a homer, who freakin cares?? hes not doin it for fans from florida, hah... the guy grew up in new hampshire and has been a diehard bruins fan his entire life, he loves his job and everything bruins hockey...your lightning haven't been in the league long enough for you to ever understand this concept...so put that in your pipe and smoke it
chara with the win in this one,chara was by far he aggressor throwing punch after punch,mayb one or two landed,arty threw two jersey punches,jersey punches don't mean shyt and they are a cheap way in fighting these days never see that shyt back in the day.well chara throws punch after punch as arty hides behind the visor.if he wants to be a tough he needsto get rid of hat someone is seriously going to hurt there hand he knew the fight was coming dump the lid..its a chepa way to try to get a win or he should get penalised..clear in chara...the crow,dude your an idiot and don't know shyt about hockey if your one of the few ignorant people that seriously think two weeks jersey jabs count in fights cause they don't.they don't score points unless there is damage or is the only thing thrown.in my book they take pointts away seing arty had plenty oppurtunity to throw punches but he coward out knowing his lid would come off an he would get pounded...arty is week and only fights the tiny guys...win chara
an okay fight by 2 big men.if your going to fight take off the visor.
Chara with the W here, just because someone takes the other down, doesn't mean it's a win.
Big C lost his balance from a jersey-jab while trying to crack that visor. Apparently he hates large Europeans.
Man - Chara doesn't fight often but when he gets fired up - stand clear. Arty's a big boy that does a lot of running around but he is no match for Chara and his reach. Win Chara.
Chara with a small edge, notwithstanding Artyukhin's visor, Chara missed on most of the punches but he was more active so he gets the win though he's certainly not the dominant fighter a lot of people think he is....he's just bigger than everyone else....if he was a dominant fighter he would have dominated Artyukhin and he didn't
Chara had the edge.
ARTYUKHIN LOSE HIS MINE FIGHTING CHARA. CHARA CLEAR THE WINNER.
As usual GSP09 and MCB789 two fools who couldnt judge a fight never mind win one if they fought each other. YOU TWO LOSERS OBVIOUSLY CANADIAN FOOLS. not much of a fight but Artyukhin is typical foreigner cant fight, hides behind his visor, cheap shot artist he kept trying the rest of the game to hit chara what a fool.
Chara threw some bombs that landed but arty hit em' with some solid seat-belts as well! Victory Chara barely. PS. the kid didnt have time to take off the visor you idiots
chara takes it
Not much of a fight here...but one comment; and I"ve read many similar ones in the past...Mcb...you sir are a moron.
Ok fight. Edge Zdeno Chara.
I am not giving a "W" let alone a draw to a guy with a visor on that takes a shot at a much smaller non-fighter at Artyukhin and then doesn't have the berries to take off his helmet and visor. That's shades of Ulf Samuelssen back in the 80s and 90s vs. Cam Neely. I don't think so.
chara with the win
Chara owned him without a doubt. He landed a few shots before they even got tangled up. Not even close.
chara defends his players no matter what. lucic finished his hit and artyukhin tried to be a tough guy. take a hit dude, its hockey. bruins are the best team in hockey for that reason. tough, physical hockey.
Win for Chara. But he did catch a left at the end of the fight from Artyukhin.
This was at best a draw but I feel Chara got the first few in first give him the small edge
i really like the way Artyukhin worked that weak-side hand in. thats an invaluable technique for a fighter. i'd have to go with chara on this one because from what i saw, chara got more punches in and better ones at that. so chara, but just barely.
Chara is boss
Chara win, its not easy win opposit visor.
Now that is exactly what a Captain is supposed to do. Chara see's this big pansey artyukhin go after small playmaking Krejci and Chara goes over and stands up for one of the Bruins better players. Win for Chara
Not sure why Chara gets the win here. He never connected with anything. Art was feeding him jersey jabs the entire fight that were connecting. Art wins....Also gets the take down.
chara is an over-rated bum...plain and simple....artyukhin pounded on that pus$y wimp chara..........artyukhin------the super heavyweight just plain man-handled chara........this is a very embarressing loss for a man-------chara that is supposed to be regarded as one of the toughest....haaaaaaaaaa.......chara aint shiiiiiiiit to get beat up by arty........boston needs to get a real goon...not just pus$y fighters
Chara jumped him...gutless move...no time to take off the visor...and I hate Arty, but no class Capt. Z.
Chara showed typical Bruins class by jumping the guy from behind. Arty has a shield on so most of the punches caught shield by chara and arty punchrs clearly landed and actually knocked chara down wit a good hook. Chara is only big like lucic but lacks the class and talent to be a real tough guy
nice to see chara losing fight.thanks artyukhin
as usual, the northern homers got it wrong, chara swung more and hit nothing artyukins 2 jabs connected, that russian visor or no visor is one rocky movie big dude
First of all Chara gave him a sucker cross check to the head (and from the blind side). A guy that big and tough doesn't need to be bitch. It probably would have gone better for Chara if he squared up on him. Artyukhun got two nice jabs in on Chara and I didn't see Chara land a single blow. I spent a number of years in New England and enjoyed watching the Bruins but I would have to agree that the announcers have ALWAYS been homers and lack the objective view of the game and fights. And I don't know how anyone could see that Chara won this fight. My 2 cents
Chara Misses 94%+ of his shots and Arty lands 2 shots..... how the fuk is that a Win For Chara ? it isnt!!!!! thats a fuking Draw but since you guys suck at life and have Charas cock up your ass and act like Homers..... Win Arty
Chara goes down . Artyukhin with the big left that takes him down.
Even though Chara got good punches in there, they landed on Artyukhins shield. Artyukhin was able to land a few punches and or jabs on chara cleanly.
I think it is official.......you people are idiots!! Who the hell says "jersey punches" don't mean shyt? Obviously it stung "Lurch". Chara didn't land a solid hit. Please do us all a favor BEFORE you post...pull your head out of your arse..
i give it to arty,would love to see chara fight scott,only one close to his size.
CHARA DIDNT LAND ONE PUNCH GET A CLUE BRUINS HOMERS
Artyukhin got a couple of nice ones in there and the giant went down. Chara doesn't win them all you guys. Arty wanted Looch and that would have been a doozy.
easy win for artyukhin over the big goof chara!! the freak of nature chara cant fight!!! chara is a sissy!!!
Chara lost to some nice jersey jabs and a lack of balance. But I guess the visor means this should be considered a draw...
Win Artyukhin. He got the better of Chara. People are just afraid to say that Chara actually lost. And the face shield is smart so that when hes sitting in front of the net he doesnt get hit with the puck. Smart guy if you asked me, plus he isn't even the enforcer for the team.
Chara only landed the sucker punch...Arty landed 2 good jersey jabs right on Sasquatch's jaw.
Arthyukin with the narrow win
Artyukhin won this, landed more punches.
That was a good fight, since Chara came it with the stick high and starting punching to have the fight end the way it did i give it a win for Artyukhin. Jerk off Edwards did not get to excited at the end of the fight i guess it did not go his way and i have not heard him use body blow in a while what a loser good thing he works for NESN TV.
Gotta love when a guy takes Chara down to the ice. Gotta watch that left hand Chara! He doesn't loose many fights.
Yeah, angry Chara goes down from jersey jabs. I don't think he was angry enough.
Artyukhin kept the jabs going and Chara did not know what to do. Chara missed alot and was thrown down. TKO.
Pretty much a draw with the edge to Artyukhin for more jabs landed than Chara's attempted bombs.
I would not want to fight Chara, Artyukhin lands the best punches with the lefts.
1) Funny how that spineless yellow wimp of a hockey player Lucic skates away from yet another player he knows will clean his clock. 2) Chara comes in to defend wimps Lucic and Krejci who both skate away from giant Russian. 3) Chara cross checks Artyukhin in the mouth which I believe cuts him. 4) Chara swings a lot but doesn't connect much, mostly air 5) Artyukhin's jabs are just as lethal as Chara's big swings and final jab that lands Chara smack on the chops was enough to put Lurch down. 6) Edwards is the biggest idiot to ever call a hockey game and isn't worthy of being the janitor at a manure compost plant. Finally, RRSM53 how old are you? 6? 7? Chara happens to be a foreigner also if you hadn't noticed and your idiotic comments towards Canadians shows your level of intelligence or lack of. I won't stoop as low and denigrate an entire population of 300 million only because you obviously are a frustrated and brainless little boy.
Chara falls to protect his image of invincibility. Artyukhin wins hands down. His punches landed and he didn't collapse like Chara. The voting is disgraceful here and only shows there are more Bruins fans than Lightning, no surprise. I feel sorry for the guy Chara is going to reaffirm himself on, unless it's Laraque (if he still plays?). Then he'll lose his balance again.
The fact that the voting is even close says alot if you add in the strong following Chara has, and the incredible bias that comes from the Boston commentators. I'm lost to see what they're talking about with Arty taking three strides...Lucic was the one who threw a late hit. Artyukhin wanted to say a word or two to him, and that's when Chara grabs him. Good to see somebody finally strong enough to show Chara what time it is. Clear win for Artyukhin.
draw and a 3 to a fight that could have been much better, on the classy side i think it's pussier hitting unexpectedly from behind than leaving a visor on
I want to see Arty go without the visor!
Draw, but I'd almost give it to Arty if I believed a jersey jab could actually knock a guy down?? I liked the way Chara went after him as policeman, but those visors really are a problem - you could almost see Chara swinging carefully. At least the Bruins give their announcer something to get excited about: scoring, winning and tough guys who can play. Should be the team to beat in the playoffs.
RRSM53 is obviously an American assclown who knows shit about hockey. Gee I soooo wish I was American so I could have a loser go on a rampage and shoot up old age homes, and schools DAILY in my country. Winner society!!! Fat and stupid is no way to go through life. Foreign Aid Pmarz1? Wow what are you sniffing? US is bankrupt. You get foreign aid from everywhere!!!
I hate giving Arty any credit here for fighting with a visor on. I'm with MM here... why is he running around playing tough guy with a near full sheild on? WTF?
chara wins easily, mcb u still here u pussy
Chara is one bad M-F'er...Please folks, if you are going to run around like a bad ass, please don't wear a shield. For heavens sake, have a little pride, will ya?
While I do think Chara won, what was Brickley talking about? Artyukhin had the puck, Lucic took about ten steps to run him, not the other way around. Chara ought to think twice about dropping the gloves with a guy wearing a visor. They need him for the playoffs.
Big Z seemed like he wanted to go more, and his punches seemed to land a little, but the visor definitely made him throw less. Still, a win for Giganto.
Big Z layeth the smacketh down....EA Fn with kreci,dumbass bully.... captain Z leading by example....a Gordie Howe hat trick on his bday....nice
Did anything land?
Chara Landed nothing, Arty landed two solid jersey jabs, if anything edge Artyukhin.
Chara was gettin' rocked by the other guy's jab,....thought his head was gonna' come off. Artyukin with the win - no question.
Jack Edwards(the announcer and the guy on here), your an idiot
I don't know, after watching a lot of Chara fights recently, from him pummeling that guy's face into strawberry jam, I don't know why people say he can't fight, but I haven't seen him one punch anyone, when he fought in the playoffs, he looked plain silly the way he was pawing at his opponent, sorry, it's been so long ago already! But I gave this to Artyukhin by a slim margin. He seemed to control Chara and in most fights, Chara ends up on top of his opponents, Artyukhin managed to turn that around despite getting attacked from the rear. Sorry Behn, I think Evgeny was in control, he sure was holding Chara off and was jabbing away, Chara DID get in a couple of hits to Arty's helmet, except for the initial attack when he wasn't ready....maybe I'm just seeing someone control the Yeti and not having fear in their eyes and hitting the deck right away, swayed me a bit. And yes, secretly, I would like to see Chara/Boogie...Chara/Pronger would be nice, but it seems there's a memo going around about fighting with all this media coverage on VS or something...it's been pretty dry so far this playoff season...
Arty actually landed more punches with his jab.
Wow how can you guys even give this to Chara..... its obvious Chara got stunned with that last jab to the nose... and it sent him straight to the ground. No contest...
An angry Chara is not something you want chasing you around... win Zdeno, on fear alone.
