There were a couple of punches thrown by Neil,tough to see if anything landed though.Begin is a gamer,but he and Bitz both need to keep their gloves on and leave the fighting to Thornton and Lefebvre (If Julien ever lets him play).Easy win for a guy I cant stand,Chris Neil.
The Boston announcers suck. They are the worst homers out there. I remember a few years ago the leafs were up 7 to 1 on Boston and Andy Brickley was commenting with a bounce here or a bounce there the result could be different. What a bunch of losers.
So how either guy got a major for that is sad. That was two roughing majors. Chris Neil is a guy like Avery to me. Likes to talk and fight guys that dont fight. This was possibly the weakest "fight" this year.
Not much of a fight.. big question hit (looked high to me, but wideman got up fine). Begin steps in, which is good to see but Begin vs Neil is a bit of a mismatch. Goes to the ice quick and Neil holds up from throwing any punches, which was even better to see. Neil wins in what probably should have been called a double roughing on Begin and a roughing and possible elbow for Neil.
Chris Neil gets alot of bad remarks on this site but he is a top 5 fighter in the nhl and can actually play the game ....another easy win for the guy i call tough as neils...also a great hit before the bout
