Other Penalties: King received a hooking; John Scott and Keith Tkachuk each received a roughing.
The voting on this fight is starting to remind me of the Godard/Brashear a few years back. Godard got Brashear to bleed, but Brashear landed more, but Godard received more votes on a "win" this fight: King landeds a few lefts and a good right that broke Boogaard's nose. Boogaard comes back landing a big a right sending king's helmet flying. After that, king turtled and maybe threw a punch at the end, while boogaard remained active, landing a few solid shots before the refs broke it up. And to all the morons who think, BLOOD = a win. Of course you can punch a break someone's nose which blood will come, but it doesnt mean someone wins a fight. Watch the fight closely. Draw/edge boogaard
' Boogard with more "lighter" punches. King with less "stronger" punches. Draw.
Maybe Boogaard should be a man and lose the helmet. Dump the gear if you want to be known as a fighter, cause he's sure not known for his talent.
start was quite exciting but it was a long fught and it was kinda boring at the end.i call it a draw becuz of boogaards bleeding nose
Announce says 2 of the NHL biggest heavy weights? KING 6'2" 228 ?????? Out weighted by 30 some odd lbs and half a foot, D.J. King fights the Boogie man to a draw. Interesting tactic of dropping the head and throwing rights like former Heavy Weight Boxing Champ Ken Norton.
derek boogaard win
I fairly new to this site. Judging fights, to me, cuts mean nothing. King cut Boogaard early, but Boogaard definitely landed more, King seemed to be somewhat dazed at the end. Both guys put up a great effort. I'd call it a draw/slight edge to Boogaard for landing more solid and effective blows.
Good scrap but I think this was a draw
I am a wild fan, and that wasnt cool by scott. King wanted boogey and he held up to him. I think Boogy had a little edge but i said draw cause both exchanged good blows.. Good fight!
long bout, it seemed like boogaard landed more punches, however it seemed king landed better shots, im leaning towards boogaard, but because he was all jacked up after, i went with a draw!
Even fight. No advantage either way, here.
I have to call this one a close draw. It appeared that the boogerman landed more punches, but Kinger landed the one that counted. Boogerman left the ice, not to return...that should be enough to give King the win (It's not always the blows, but the results that count) , but call it a draw anyway. ** having problems understanding how folks could give Booger the win...He left the Ice, not to return. Waste of a roster spot. Still would love to give this to King, but have to stick with the draw.
What a fight. King had it early, then Boogaard pretty much controlled, but didn't really land anything like King did. This a draw, in my book.
Nice scrap between two big guys. Boogaard landed more but King lands the best punch.
great fight. no doubt King landed some good shots early, but IMO he hung on after his helmet got popped off and just wanted to tie Boogy up. fan of neither although props to King for doin well against the champ.
Although King landed the biggest shot I still have to call it a draw.
Great scrap by the big fellows. I have to give it a draw. I'm really unsure how a fight can rate out 44% one guy and 42% the other guy...unless a lot of homers are voting. Or, it could be the Boogie haters voting against him. Not sure what the damage to Boogie was, but as far as punches go, I think it was pretty even.
tough to call, Boogaard more active, King landed the best punch of the fight. Great scrap, give it an 8 and a draw
I'm going to give this one a draw. Boogie man landed more but it looks like King landed the ones that did the most damage. Boogie controlled the fight but I'll give it a DRAW
great, great fight. i hold my breath every time boogaard fights, just waiting for one of those monster hammers of his to kill someone. king is lucky those two in a row didn't connect solid, yikes. not many can hold their own against boogaard, fantastic job my king here. all the respect in the world for what he did. calling it a draw and an 8, that was one damn good fight.
Draw and a good one.
Boogie with the bloody nose but he was throwing them, too. D.J. King is a top heavyweight but Panger has certainly elevated him even higher.
Good bout,both had their moments,call it a draw.
very good fight between these 2 guys.
I called it a draw . Too close to give ti to either and I don't give points or a win just because someone is bleeding. More shots seemed to land for Boogey but the better ones' by King...............so DRAW GREAT FIGHT GAVE IT A ..8 RATING
Great fight to watch....give the slight edge to B.J. with his powerful punches that sent Derek to the showers. I'm still not convinced that the 6'7" Boogie could stand up to a comparable man his size (someone like Chara) and win convincingly enough to recieve the claim of being today's best heavyweight. He in fact may be just one heavyweight fight away from going to the AHL.
Good bout folks. Mad props to DJ for not only showing up in this tilt but giving boogie a run for his money. He pounded him with a big right at the start resulting in a cut for boogie and doesn`t puss away like jackbags such as hordisuck. Boogie after being a bit stunned recovers and drills king with a flurry of rights. Very spirited scrap by both combatants give this one a draw
A lot of different feedback on this fight for sure......I gave it a draw as a hockey fight, boxing ring would have gave it to Booger on pts.....After watching this fight a few times, DJ lands a very good punch, then hangs on for dear life....Boogers shot to the head, see the flying helmet reminded me of a kocur or probie punch, if that connected flush to the face, we would not be debating.....Rumors are that Booger has a broken nose and/or took stitches??? who knows rright now.....Funniest comments were by Janssen calling out Booger for no respect for a player and showboating?? Dj challenged and Booger accepted, where was the no respect or showboating?? I like DJ, cant stand Janssen, never did.....
A serious fight. King nails Boogard with two or three hard rights, opening him up. Boogard sends King's helmet flying with a mighty right. Would give King the win except he was holding on at the end, waiting for the zebras.
Great technique from King. Head down, throwing overhands at the taller Boogard. Boogard obviously stronger, pushing King around. Both connected with some devastating punches. Boogard's liver punches were overlooked by Kelly. Draw.
bloody face + not return= Loss boogie
King had those two nasty punches but boogaard was only stopped by the refs when he couldn't break free from kings grip. He got a few shots in, too, and cut or not he was obviously the only one trying to fight for the last half of that bout. Gotta be a draw. Great fight! Hope they both stay healthy so we see more of this! Draw. If you score only on blood, King wins it. If you take into account Kings best shots didn't even slow down boogaard (though they looked hard as fk!) boogaard wins based on activity.
Huge King fan, but this is IMO a 100% draw. Boogaard threw more, King landed two of the best three shots in the fight. There was a good picture of Boogaards face on the Blues telecast as he skated off the ice, and he was actually busted open in two places: his nose and above his eye. King lands that early bomb, then Boogaard gets the helmet spinner, then a few seconds after King pops him on the brow busting him open again. Thats the first time I recall Boogaard being bloodied. I was nervous for King when I saw him calling out Boogaard and then squaring off like that, because he had gotten worked over in the previous two bouts, but he got good position and hung in there. Thats two top five fighters at their best. I'm sure Boogaard will be anxious to redeem himself next year.
wow that john scott guy is a douche. what a cheap shot on weaver. if boogaard wasnt out there then scott would have gotten his ass beat
Wow good fight.
Great fight. I'd like to give the edge to King for cutting Boogaard...but Derek came back strong after taking that right. I am calling it a draw.
That's a battle. King did much better than usual against this ape and lands a couple of beauties. Missing Link then tags him with some bombs and he stayed upright. I'll call it a draw even though the tree was cut and King solidifies himself as a legit contender for the title.
Amazing battle: wish one of them wold take on Matt Cooke and finish his career
Great fight, no backing off.
real good fight.....lets see scott V. boogaard now haha
THAT FIGHT WAS A SLOBBER KNOCKER
Draw. Boogy landed more but King did the most damage.
Close fight, King with the best shots, Boogie landed more.....
King won by a nose.
King wasnt intimidated at all of the big giant
boogaard with the long uneffective punches,,,king won,t go down,slight edge to king,,,can,t wait for the next round.
I dont understand how anyone can give the edge to Boogaard. Just read the post from the guy who was there. Boogards face was detroyed and his eye and nose were bleeding pretty good. Boogaard did not return due to broken nose. Solid shots King 2 Boogard 1. Helmet shots dont count. I guess you are the same people who gave the edge to Barch over King. Lets be real here.
Nice showing by King against the big guy.
Almost a draw but,,, If you need stitches on your forehead and your nose is broke and you can't return to the game You Lose! Winner King.
good fight, but if your nose get broken, i think you lose, glad Kong is back, now if he can get ahold of Ott edge to King landed the better punches, Boogie landed more, but if they have to scrap your blood off the ice, you lose
Win for King. DJ did what works against Boogaard, get in close and let 'em fly. Props for Boogaard for not going down after King connected with the bomb. Un-props (?) for holding on and turning away at the end. Always like King and was hoping that he and Scott would go.
As a Wild fan, I expect more from the Booger. He is way overrated. He thinks he is so bad and if it wasn't for his size, he would be nothing. Clumsy clumsy clumsy. John Scott would kill booger. I was at the game and Booger lost. He never came back as he left with a busted nose. Get in close and you can beat Booger. Let him throw hay makers and he will hurt you. That's why BGL will always beat him, because he gets in close. Not a homer fan here, just being honest.
DJ King gotta get the Win, nearly TKOed Boogey...
win king. boogaard was a bloody mess at the end.
I give the win to our favourit DJ. Boogey got his nose smashed. Just take a look at Kings hand in the end of the vid. Great fight from both of them.
Great fight, very close but have to give the edge to King for busting Boogard's face.
Due to the damage to Boogie's face I have to give this one to King. Boogie won on punch count but he did no damage. King was giving away 6" in height and 30+ lbs. First fighter that I have seen that left a mark on the Boogie man. King will have them lining up for a go with the man who "Shot Boogie" Just one added comment: When the fight was over and the players separated, who would you rather have been ? King or Boogie? King with a possible noogie or Boogie with a beat-in face?
Tough one to call. I'll go with edge DJ King.
This is a hockey fight. You can't out point an opponent. Boogard was retired for rest of the game by King. Yes, one punch can win a fight in the world outside of pro boxing. King wins his first against Boogey (his face is all the evidence there needs to be).
Watched the game, DJ busted Boogs nose open bad, blood was pouring out of it, which you can't see on this, but, that's why Boog goes to the locker room and not the penatly box that you do see in this.
Anytime you're on the road and send the bigger and better fighter to his trainers room for repairs, I'll give you the win. DJ was King for the day. Boogaard stayed with him knocking his helmet off with a punch that King could of been picked up for speeding in Honululu,but that said after the fight there were two injuries. The first was Boogaards face and the second was Kings hand. It doesn't take a genius to figure out who won this one. Good fight but I hold Boogaard to a higher level. At home he's suppose to send King back to his lockerroom.
im givin it to king in this one..he clocked booger a good one
had the the reach. . .and lost the blood Win for King hehehe I cant wait for the Caps and Rangers games this year. . .
Win for THE KING!!
Are you people retarded!?! Where I come from, the one with the bloody face and has to leave the game, lost the fight. DJ is back baby!
This is what happens when Boogard fights someone as strong as him. Two fat shots to the nose and he loses.
king with the edge for making booger have to get repairs for a broke nose
I dont know how any one could think that Boogaard won? Look at his face after the fight! His blood is on kings fist!
Saw this live Boogaard was cut and his face was a mess ---he went to the room and has'nt come back--- King in a very close tilt, landed less but far better shots--- look at their faces when it's over tells ya who the loser was
Nice tilt, very slight edge to King because of the monster shot. Most any other fighter would have been KO'd, but Boogard shows he can take a punch and be a top offensive fighter. Derek has probably not seen that much of his own blood before.
just because boogard landed more doesnt mean they were more effective. look at boogards face and you will see how effective kings hits were
Great fight by 2 heavyweights!! Boogaard was in control for most of the fight, but King landed the better shots. Boogaard let the ice in a bloody mess and did not return to the game, Im guessing its was more than a few stiches or else he would have returned to the game. Win for King in a close great fight!!!
Boogaard didn't even return, how could he have won this. King won this.
You bleed you lose
Kings got balls to stand and trade with the Boogie man.. I think king one this one.
Good job DJ!
Not one of the best performances by either, considering what each is capable of, but a really good fight for King against a much bigger man. Luckily Boogy missed with most of his rights and King got him with two good rights. Gotta give the nod to Kinger for damage, avoiding damage and landing the better (although fewer) punches. Great job Kinger, you are missed in Peoria!!!
DJ King slight edge. Boogey lost. Even Kocur lost occasionally.
I'm still surprised by all the Green Boogerman [email protected] every time I browse the comments. Good fight, but clearly not domination especially if you need repairs and you're skating backwards during most of the tilt. Better percentage King, more thrown Boogaard... but sewn up and a broken nose? Ouch! 50.5% King ps. a boogie is what my 3 year old daughter wipes on the T.V. every time Chicago is playing.
Total props to Kinger for hanging with Goliath. Boogard is an animal and King took some shots, more than he gave, but he buckled Boog, and that's a win on my card.
I have to give King the W based on the injuries Boogaard received. King landed fewer punches but he landed the two biggest in the fight. Boogey landed more but many were body punches (which may hurt but I don't count them). Boogaard never returned from the locker room. Looked like he had a broken nose and a cut over his eye. DJ King with the win on effectiveness.
Even though Boogy threw more i say DJ got the last laugh on this one, connected with two hard shots (that didn't even stun em, damn) and Boog never came back from the damage sustained.
Good start by King ,seemed to tire near the end giving boogey the slight edge there ,but overall win in a close one by king.
Boogey more punches, more landed. BUT Kinger does the damage with the two best punches. DJ with slight edge.
It was a great fight and it depends on how you want to judge a fight. Boogaard threw a few more punches, but King did more damage to Boogaards face. More of a draw, but i can see where you can give boogaard a slight edge. Very good showing for king though. (edit) Watch the play in slow motion you will see the first part of the fight where both landed two each, but Kings punches broke Boogaards nose and gave him a cut by the eye. I wonder how many people would want to fight king now after this fight? (edit) some of you people are blind because King landed 2 punches, not 1. You saw the first big one but when they were near the boards king threw 2 more punches, the first one missed, but the second one was the shot on his nose. you have to watch it closely but you can clearly see the shot to the nose. After that is when King got in close which what was his gameplan. he talked to Chase and Jansens about the best way to fight him. The both agreed he has stay in close.
do you really think boogey went into the locker room , saw his face and and thought " boy i really showed him " he may never recover from a beating this bad . rodney king didnt
King- winner. The other winner is the Red Cross after receiving a large and steady blood donation by the Booger. There can be no other decision as one of the combatants was unable, or too scared, to return to the ice. Hopefully the Booger had some extra tampons in his purse to stuff up what was left of his nose to slow the gusher as he was taken screaming and crying to the nearest gynecologist for repair. The good news is that now with his nose almost touching his right ear he won't be able to smell how badly he stinks as a hockey player as much anymore. It turns out Ms. Booger is missing at least a second game tonight as result of his beat down. I see King is playing tonight. The winner plays while the looser listens to the tweetie birds in his head in the pressbox (that is if he even ever made it out of the ICU). The other good news is that Booger may now qualify for a handicapped parking space. R.I.P. Ms. Booger.
Great fight. Slight edge to King.
I don't get how some say Boogaard won. Yes, he threw more punches, but they did no damage. Boogaard is the one who left the game with cuts under his eye, on his forehead and a broken nose. I don't know about you but I'd rather be DJ King this morning. Damage was done, King wins.
Very close fight, have to give the edge to King he ended Boogaard's night, broken nose and cuts to the face. Good fight by both guys though.
Good fight, King landed bigger shots, Boogie landed more though. Call this a draw.
Wow! King with the slight win. Good scrap either way.
Additional video shows the damage done to Boogaard as he leaves the ice. Given how little King has been fighting this season I give him the win. No signs of rust. He tuned Boogaard up with a couple of great punches and then Boogaard tied King up for the remainder to prevent any further damage to his face...
now that is a 7 bitches!! hell, I give it at least an 8! total sweetness gave it to king even though boogie controlled the action (as someone else said) boogey was a bloody mess the freak gets beat but, had control seemingly throughout even though he could have went down easily with one of those helmet crushers king throws love the way this one started out though the cameara man was never goning to pan over thanks for this site man, people don't appreciate how cool this site really is
Bigger, heavier shots by DJ - which is saying alot when you are fighting Bogey. DJ's hand was sore, Bogey's face was bloodied. Clear win for DJ.
This was a good bout....wow. I think King had a bit of an edge in this.
Heck of a fight. Gotta give credit to King for the duck and get in close approach and doing some noticeable damage. King took some shots too with no ill effects. Slight edge to King in this one. Maybe Boogey was thinking ahead to the Vancouver game.....and Hordichump.
The Boogeyman threw more but King Kong busted that face up. You don't return to the game you don't win.
great example of fair fighting (vs teh Cooke vs Sevard effort of last season). King returned to the ice; Boogaard did not. The fact that Boog continued to throw punches is interesting, but they didn't appear to hurt King. King didn't knock Boog down, but otherwise was very effective in keeping the game "honest." Yes, I give it to King by a very slim edge. More importantly, I learned about the role of each on their respective teams.
Give the win to King in a close fight for landing more and heavier punches. Great to see someone take the fight to Boogaard and stay in close. Quality fight!
Great fight. I have to give King the decision. Boogaard was more active, but King landed the biggest punches.Boogaard's face was a mess. He did not return to the game.
Clear win for King. Did you people not see Boogard's head snap back from two of King's punches? Not saying Boogard didn't land some good ones too, but let's be real here. King messed up Boogard reeeeaaaal bad! His face looked like it had been put through a blender. The only thing hurting on King at the end of this one was his hand. Clear win for King!
Boogaard is a no good hack. He's just a trouble maker. If he were such a tough guy, he would have stayed in the game. The Wild are better off with him in the locker room anyways.
Bogey threw more. DJ landed the most important one. !! DJ IS KING !!
A good, close fight, but Kinger gets the decision. If you have any doubts, check out this pic fo Boogaard after the fight: http://cdn.nhl.com/images/upload/2010/03/97701867_slide.jpg
King held up great against Boogaard. He had his hands full with him but did considerably well and produced more damage. But Boogaard had many more shots in than king. See how king did the first time he went against this beast in his rookie season in 2007. you willl see how king grew as a great fighter. Slight edge to King
D.J. King made Boogard bleed . Boogard nothin but an overgrown B#tch.
Great fight....very close but I give it to King
I will admit it was a great fight, but how Boogard is winning in votes is beyond me. 1:33 mark on the the additional video, image speaks for itself. Whether or not someone goes to the box or the dressing room after a fight is a HUGE indicator of who won.
pretty well reviewed fight (so far) for a change....seems like less pillow fighting by the keyboard crew Boogy dictated the fight and landed more but King landed better....tough call but with Boogy leaving and not returning to the ice i would have to say King gets the win....from watching it was too close to call but some fights the final result lets us know who won did we hear why Boogie didn't return...we know he was cut but was there more?
Great fight both ways
Wow what a fight!Amazed there some people that want to judge the fight on points and a helmet flying off.The object of fighting is to neutralize the threat of the enforcer.Four minutes into the game and eleven seconds into his shift and one the scariest enforcers in the league has to leave the game because the red cross alert was going off .When someone has to leave cause their nose is broke,cut over eye and busted lip there is a clear winner.Also for the homer who said Boogie has owned King in every fight clearly hasnt watch them fight each other in the AHL!Win for King in a close and great battle!
amazing how many guys have the boxing mentality of quanity over quality Boogaard landed many more but in no way dominated DJ King who landed his share but in the end Boogaard had to have his nose shuffled 2 inches back to the center and as for DJ just some ice for a very sore hand
that was awesome
What a fight. Boogaard w/ some good shots, King with the better shots. Looked like Boogaard's lips was messed up at the end but cant be sure. Boogaard w/ alot of punches but i will give it to King for staying in it and landing some good punches. UPDATE: Boogaard suffered a broken nose, cut under the eye, and cuts to the forehead. I like how so many are saying that king was holding on. name one fighter in the NHL that hasnt held on. Boogaard shouldn't even be in the NHL. He is a shaved sasquatch.
Boogaard's face tells the story. Win King Kong.
The big goon Boogaard got some big ones in but I give this one to King, not by much but it was nice to finally see the big goon Boogaard get lit up with a shot or 2. All he tries to do is hurt people so it was nice to see him busted for once!
Excellent job both platers. Boogaard left and that tells who won right there.
Who goes to the locker room and who goes to the box. Edge King, What a fight. Easy to call it a draw.
great fight and have to give win to king for messing up boogards face. in street fight boogy goes home to momma and doesn,t come back.
Nice to see the big guys giver er and go at it to the full extent and leave nothing behind. Both guys came together during a scrm along the boards and DJ call Derek out. Derek obliged and the fireworks went off after a nice square off. Both threw with either hand and landed plenty of quality punches. Of course Derek had the height and weight advantage, as he usually does, but Dj fought smart, staying low, out of the reach of Derek's jabs and overhands, most landing on the back of the head of DJ, if not shoulder pads. DJ caught Derek with a couple nice rights straight on the button and caused some serious damage to Derek, causing him to go for a check up and possible repairs afterwards. After rewatching this on the HD it is obvious Derek LOST this fight due to the clear damage-never to return. Derek was truly damaged...in fact never retururned to the game=one shift for 11 seconds with King having plenty more shifts after the fight. Boogaard goes for repairs,never to return, and King goes to the box to ice his knuckles. WIN KING!
How can anyone say King didn't win that???? Did you see Boogaard's face???? CMON!
DJ is, well, the King of this bout. Oh sure, the Big Boogy was throwing alot and dancing, but where the rubber meets the road, DJ flattened this guys tires. I mean, the big dude left the ice with his face bloodied up pretty bad. It was a good fight to watch though, so both of these bruisers win points for their effort.
boog the bully was a bloody mess and was a no show the rest of the game ...King did well for once against him.I wish the blues had Scott.....
Great fight. Both Scott and Boogaard wanted King, and I thought Scott may go with King later in the game. Boogaard threw more punches, but virtually everything went off Kings helmet or the back of his head. King through fewer punches, but made them count. Boogaards face was covered with blood, and his nose looked to be broken as he skated off the ice. Is there any word on if Boogaard suffered another concussion with the one big punch by King that knocked his head back about 6 inches. All of the obvious damage in this fight was to Boogaard. Win to King!
Thought fight was even until saw the bloodied press pics of Boogard and heard he had broken nose. King did more damage.
Boogaard threw more punches but in the end king did way more damage i definetly think that King Won this one
Win to King on the road. Sends the big Boogeyman to the locker room for the night with a busted up face with two big solid punches that almost knocked the 270 lb man off his feet. I think Boogey was physically hurting more than King after this fight. http://cdn.nhl.com/images/upload/2010/03/97701867_slide.jpg Anytime you send the home teams tough guy to the locker room early in the first period for bloody repairs and he doesn't return...that's a win in my book. If it had gone longer(??)...who knows?
Great Fight! Give King the edge, that stick to the nose of Boogard was a bomb. He had Boogie backing up the whole time. King is back, the heavyweight belt will soon be his. Good to see him healthy. Btw, whoever said Godard is the camp right now is a moron. I'd say Orr is the champ right now. I want to see Orr & King dance, badly.
Just going on punches thrown and landed boogaard gets the win in a great fight but since boogaard was bleeding badly and didnt return to the game you would think that there was some damage done to him that was sufficient. The fact that boogaard didnt return gives king the win here in my opinion
Gotta go King, damage is everything, hockey fighting is scored on beauty points, King punched the giant out of the game. Boogs fought well and he scored more shots, but rib shots don't mean sh*t, blood does, King WIN!!!
Great Fight by King Kong! Got to give it to King for the pure fact that boogard is huge and has a major reach advantage! King is for sure on of the toughest in the league. btw- how is your nose boogy??
Very good fight!!!
da ambalamps bring dem
boogie threw more obviously kings did some damage
Great Fight.....Slight edge to King though.
Great go, very slight edge to King who landed more major blows early and held on to make most of Boog's later shots miss
Boogaard has 30 lbs and 6 inches on King. King broke Boogaard's face, nose and jaw. Boogaard won't fight for a long time. He got hit so hard, his punches after that right were like feathers in a breeze. King showed mercy as he knew he hurt Boogaard. It was a real ass kicking. Boogaard didn't return after his first face changing shift and .... ...didn't play next game either. He didn't play the game after that. He didn't play the next game after that one either. So King knocked him out of three more games plus the game he got knocked out of. King did play many more shifts that game regardless of what some on this blog say. Look at the stats... Anyone who voted for Boogaard or for draw is a stupid jerk loser bum from the Cities or from the more backward part of Mn. Count punches, do whatever, it doesn't change the ass kickin. Win to DJ "the King" Rehab for Boogaard.
Wow, great fight. It's not often you see boogard loose a punch-in-the-face contest like this. He didn't get dominated by any means, but the shots that King landed did pretty solid damage, Boogie stunned him with a shot or two, but I give the edge win to King. Again, great fight.
Those of you voting for Boogaard are morons. The Boogeyman left the game with a broken nose.
King with the win. The right he landed was EPIC!
Just amazing, God I love this sport
KING WIN for breaking Boogards face all over.. Look at the Additional video/Minnesota feed to see boogers face as he skated to the dressing room. Wouldn't want to be that guy. picture: http://tr.im/RUdS
Great fight. King landed some power punches early and Boogard got some rabbit punches off late but it looked like most were deflecting off the back of King's head and pads. The Blues's King and Janssen are really solid at switching hands and being effective with either hand. King took some shots but Quality over Quantity in this one. King wins 55/45...close, great bout!
Edge Boogaard, seemed like they were both being careful and rightly so.
Victory Boogaard - King was hanging on for dear life. Afraid to actually exchange punches with the Boogey Man
I wish DJ was healthy this year. and good to see Boogy finally fight damn. Damn good bout in this game. Boogy didnt return i guess but its more than likely he didnt cuz he sucks at hockey and already got his dirty work done with. DJ had the best 2 punches but boogy had control and a lot more shots. hard to score. dont wanna give this great bout a draw so ima go with boogy even tho hes an asshole. people say its not an 8? why not thats a B lol 82%. people score too low
WOW !!! That was BIG boys fighting like middle weights ...................lots of punches..........some better than others........slight win to DJ...........
Great fight, gotta give the edge to King
I have to give it to King... He is much smaller and he seems to be the only one that will stand up to BOOGIE..... Boogaard left the game with a broken nose, his face was trashed with that punch... King took Derek out of the game within 4:00mins of the game starting.... I would have to think Dereks face is broken somewhere. WAY TO GO KING...... NICE TO SEE HIM BACK AND KICKN SOME ASS!!!!! I give the fight to the guy that stays in the game... Boogie fcukn left the game after the fight... 4mins into the game.... I think King wins just for that and he being much smaller!!!!!
king dominated. I don't think Boogard even landed a punch. Who taught him how to fight? Sidney Crosby?
DJ King is the new King...........Put on a big giant plastic face cover and come back out boogy
King with the win here. Very close fight and some great blows by both but Boogards face, or what was left of it, gave the edge to King.
Have to give the win to King since he knocked Boogaard out of action for a few games with a concussion.
Boogaard has like 20-30lbs on king and spent most of the fight getting pushed around!
Clear win for Boogard. From start to the end.
These announcers are as bad as the ones in Ottawa with " Sen's Vision"...and no sen has ever lost a fight, There is no way King won this fight...no way. Boogard all the way. All respect for King, but he bit off more than he could chew. Woof Woof!!! Free Bart Powwow the schoolyard bully!!! And for crying out loud...feeed Philadelphia " Bigdog" Collins a dozen cheeseburgers...Belch!! Woof!
Boogie again but didnt the kid king look great here at hf.com with king rypian and the flyers goon squad we are set for the future
King was a chicken the entire fight did not want to come in and played huggie after he got his 1 punch in, He is no heavyweight looked more like a lightweight in my book Winner BOOGIE!
Boogaard- Don't care what one punch may have done.
King didn"t throw a punch after getting tossed into the boards. I think boogie had him hurt. He was obviously holding on and waiting for the stripes. Boogaard win even though he got cut
King started out great, but then just completely stopped fighting for some reason. Win Boogaard
slight edge to Boogie for the late comeback.
King was just throwing blind punches and landed 1 lucky one that happened to catch Boogy above the eye. King has a set of women's boney hands.
Good tilt.. Boogy wins but got popped!! Took Kings best and still handled him....
Should have been another 2 on Scott for that hit on Weaver. A fantastic fight, both guys landing blows. Slight edge to Boogaard even with the cut..
It's funny everybody on here gets their panties in a bundle cause Boogey actually bled once!!!!! I was at the game, they fought right in front of us, good scrap. This was the first time D.J. didn't get it handed to him when fighting Boogey. D.J gets one good shot in, but gotta give it to big #24, he landed more!!!!!
Great fight - Boogaard wanted more, King wanted OUT. Boogaard defends his crown well and would've laid King out if King stayed opened up. Boogaard with the WIN. Close fight, but not that close.
Great Heavyweight Bout. I gave Boogey the edge, but Kinger landed some Bombs.
King got in a couple early pops and then hung on for dear life. He just tried to tie up Boogaard so he couldn't connect with anything too damaging. I think Boogaard landed more solid punches that connected, although King did get him in the nose with a good one that drew blood. Pretty decent heavyweight scrap.
Honestly, not sure how people rated this an 8.0 when barely 7-8 punches connected. Gave this to Boogard for landing more shots.
Win Boogaard. Landed the hardest punch and was much more active.
I can understand why some people say that King won this fight. He did catch Boogaard a few times and got him bloody. However, most of King's punches never hit Boogaard in the face, they hit his arm and shoulder. I give Boogaard the win for the most punches, and the harder hit that knocked Kings helmet off. Good fight.
Great fight but boogaard with the win.
Slight edge to Boogy even though King got the shot that drew blood. I went back and watched a third time in slow mo and noticed Boogy got in some much better shots then given credit for. The body shots did make King grimace and Boogy got in some decent head shots. Got King to turn at the end which left him wide open. Refs step in and fights over. He just didn't draw blood like King.
Booguard with the close win. DJ King got off to a good start but Booguard controlled most of this fight.
Booger landed the harder stuff. King seems to be a helluva lot tougher nowadays. Lotta guts.
Nice scrap... Slight edge to Boogy
King was windmilling and swinging wildly when he tagged Boogard. Pretty much a lucky punch.
sorry people... just because King hits with a blind "i'm staring at the ice swinging wildly" punch.. does not mean that he wins. Boogey's a fighter and you never see him look away. If the fight keeps going, King goes down in a heap. Winner.... Boogey.
one punch does not win a fight unless you knock the guy down and out of the fight. both were going good early and the only reason i give a slight edge to boogard was because king was hanging on and not even fighting at the end.
Boogard with the win easily. King just was throwing aimlessly and was dominated by BDB>
KIng started great but then he turned into a punching bag. I cannot understand how anyone voted for King unless you get points for being a punching bag. Boogey clear win.
great fight, giving King the win because he bloodied Boogey is fukin retarded. He only got a couple shots through and then he tried to lock Boogey out.
dj is now 1 win in four tries if he where in baseball he would still in the minors
Clear win Boogie for landing more and controlling the pace of the fight..
edge to Boogey
Boogard was the only one throwing for the latter half the fight...king was just holding on and trying not to get hit, which is not how you win a fight (one punch that gives Boogey a bloody nose and then he ties up)
Boogaard got bloodied but I think he won the fight. King is tough.
doglanta and djkingtheman you are a morons, let me rephrase the biggest morons i have ever seen on hockeyfights. Please read mnoldtime comments, I beleive that he and I are the only 2 who watched the fight....... Start, King running from boogy to center ice to pee himself. Next he ducks his head and swings like a girl hoping to hit something. while the whole time boogaard is pounding every inch of his chicken shit body...... at 37 of the fight, take a good look at the left boogy throws, proceeded by king hiding like a giant stortinni.......... Boogaarrd domination, lets see what King looks like next year when boogy sees him again, Maybe he should talk to godard about what to expect. Just when godard thought he had boogaard figured out, Boogy beat him down to the ice bad,
Boogaard buckled? What fight were you watching Rangersfan? Derek wasn't stunned for one second in this bout. C'mon man, some blood doesn't "automatically" mean a win, nor does it mean that someone was "buckled". God, some people around here are either haters, or simply ignorant.
Good tilt! Edge to Boogie! The King is definately back though
King lands a couple real good shots, but Boogaard landed a lot more, and once he got going King held on until the fight was over.
Better punches by King, but Boogaard controlled the fight for the most part. Nothing but a DRAW!
Boogs with the very close win.
i cant believe King was still standing after that shot that sent the helmet flailing. Great fight. edge Boogard
Great heavyweight match. Gave it a solid 8. Fight of the Year candidate. Edge to Boogie for being more active, but King destroyed Boogeyman's face with that big right at the beginning of the tilt. Boogey can sure take a punch and hang in there and keep throwin'. Great job by King scrappin with the boehemoth!
Not boogards best fight.DJ does land a couple blooding Boogards nose but as the fight progresses DJ hangs on for dear life as Boogy gets going.Thats why I give this on to Boogard.How about the home announcers,Two of the biggest fighters in the league.Now lets see,DJ is listed at six two 228 lbs.Not exactly one of the biggest heavies around!
King threw more punches, but Boogard gets the win for actually landing some quality shots.
Much closer fight than I expected. King landed only two, but both were big ones. Boogeyman landed more and controlled most of the fight, but had to be sent off for repairs. I refuse to vote for someone just because it was a close fight and they are an underdog. Slight edge to Boogaard, but big props to king.
I give Boogaard the win on points but King landed the heaviest punch...not shown on this clip was the bloodied and battered face of Boogaard who must have gotten his nose broken with one of those early shots from King. Not the greatest fight but it was certainly better than the Pacman fight. lol.
boogaard bleed a bit so what, he won this punk
King must be pretty tough to hang in so well with Boogaard
King was strong early, but held on after that. Boogey with the ever so slight edge for control.
who the fuck rates these fights cause a guy draws blood he wins well we better go back to our pales and plastic shovels and get in the sandbox or put on your dress dj king did great but boogaard landed some great shots and they should put the announcers in there our shut them up during fights you tell me body shots don't hurt
Great fight! I give the narrow win to Boogaard. Might not be the fight on the eyar but it is for sure a top 10 best fight.
Boogey Man with the win here. Better quality punches. Looked like he controlled the fight. I'd keep my head down too, if I were King. A big punch to the face would slow down the number of punches King intended to throw. Blood does not equate to win for King. Entertaining fight.
Props for DJ being game to mix it up with the Boogeyman...bloody or not have to give a slight edge to Boogaard...very nice fight between two true heavyweights
DJ King did NOT win that fight. If you are bleeding at the end of a fight, that does NOT mean that you lost. Boogie fed King over twice the punches and dominated the fight. I'm impressed that King held in there...I thought his head flew off there for a second but it was just the helmet.
rockem sockem robots when kings helmet went flying. slight edge to boogaard. love king putting his head down though & landing shots knowing he's gonna take a potential pound or three. good fight.
here comes the boogie man!
Great job by King taking on Boogaard but boogey landed bigger heavier shot than King. Close one but edge Boogaard.
The oly reason people are say the King won is because he drew blood. You have to look at who landed the most quality punches which I would say goes to Boogaard
Boogaard narrow win!! R.I.P thanks for all the great knockouts and fights your were the beast in the ice but the nicest guy off it! god bless
Good Fight. Hard punches landed by each guy.
It was a close fight but I'd give it to Boogaard. Boogaard landed his best shots AFTER taking one of two good punches that made Boogaard bleed. Just becasue we saw more blood come out of Boogaards face doesn't mean King won the fight. Boogaard was more active and controlled the tempo of the fight. He threw more and landed more, most of it after King stopped throwing, showing that the bloody nose didn't effect him enough to give King the win. He landed one lucky shot that didn't seem to bother Boogaard much until after the fight. King spent most of the fight in cover mode.
hard fought battle-shows how well Boogie can take a punch. King got lucky with one shot the shook Boogie and he came back with some tough shots himself. I'm sure anyone else would have been flattened except Boogaard. King looked like a little coward flailing away and hoping one swing connects, and he did, except there was more to the fight than one punch.
Boogard OUT for a few..... BROKEN NOSE! That oughta teach him that its only a matter of time. Interested to see if he's as cocky when he returns. Ego is everything for a scrapper. I guarantee he'll be a little hesitant next fight. The "cock-o-the-walk" just won't be the same. Haha, maybe he'll just fade into the sunset now.....
I give Boogaard the win, yes he did leak but overall punches and landing them it was Boogie. Watching the fight several times and from both feeds I noticed how King was not looking where he was throwing except at the top of Boogys skates. Normallly I would say tuff to land the big one when not looking but a blind squirrel found the nut.
Boogie with the win and here''s why. After king landed one good punch, he threw maybe 5 after that while Boogie threw more than a dozen. Would like to see King's face in a few days. Great fight and props to King for standing up.
WTF? King hit's Boogy right in the nose, but then holds on for dear life by locking up Boogy's right arm, what a BITCH MOVE! He get's credit for the great blood drawing punch, but then get's that credit taken away due to his life saving techniques. C'mon King, if your going to give em, be willing to take them.
I was at the game sitting third row from the ice and this bout happened right in front of me. Great fight, King proves he is a tough customer. King lands one big shot to the nose of Boogaard, but other than that it is all Boogie. Very close but slight edge to Boogaard.
When is King going to stop wanting to fight Boogaard? I think this is the 4th fight he has lost to him and still proceeds to start them, even if they aren't necessary.
Very close, but the nod to the Boogieman
Boogaard with more punches but King landed the best,
If the announcers would get up from their knees in front of King, I think they would see that he had one nice hit, but Boogaard landed more punches of higher quality. Either way, it got the game going for the Wild who ended up killing the Blues. Great fight.
I don't see how so many people called King the winner. Boogaard landed more, threw more and King quit at the end. Win Boogard, and I hate the Wild. -Canucks fan homer
Boogie for sure - King cut him, but Boogie takes the win...
Boogey with a small edge
boogaard with a slight edge win....i cant believe king didnt crumble to the ice after that wicked right from boogaard......overall a pretty good heavyweight fight.
Great fight, you don't get much better than that. I give it to the Boogy man just cause he took one of kings blind windmills early and did not quit. He landed more in the end.
Very good fight. King really only landed one good shot but looking at Boogaards face, it was a real good one. I guess we know Boogaard can take a punch as well as give one. Boogaard hit King far more often and threw way more but they did less damage. If it was boxing Boogaard would win on points but this is hockey and that one shot by King gives him a draw.
Two guys who know how to do this putting on a clinic. Actually, he gives clinics. Almost too close to call but I'm giving it to him because he knocked the helmet off (rockin-sockin-robots style) and landed more punches.
Why would anyone think King won? He landed only a few. So what if he drew blood, you can bleed by getting a basketball to the face. Boogaard won this one. More punches landed, if you don't see it watch it again.
what was king doing skating to center ice? what a joke... this isn't UFC, this is hockey.
Remember, it's not one big punch that makes for a winning fight, it's the domination. Boogaard the win, broken nose or not. People just want Boogaard to lose for some reason. Boogaard landed five unanswered shots to the head! He clearly did not lose this fight but dominated with strength once again. Be honest guys, edge to Boogaard.
Boogard edge. I have one thing to say... I hate the Blues announcer! Darren Pang the colour guy is good, but the main commentator is so biahsed! when boogaard was landing those body shots he was saying "not doing any damage", well i'd like him take some of those bodyshots from boogy before critisizing the damage of the punches!
Boogaard with the clear edge here. More blows landed, shot had no effect on him
muskokadangler- Your a moron. brad houghton- Boogard had a broken nose This is more of a draw than anything else. If you don't want to call it a draw, I suggest saying King won this just because Boogard never returned. A fight is about quality. Not quantity.
Two of my favorite guys in the NHL. Draw!!!!!
Draw. Too close to call. Each guy got in one really good shot. Boogaard bled. Not a 8.2 fight, though--that's all name value. A 6 at best. Would have liked to see Tkachuk beat on Scott. Boogaard and Scott in the same line-up--no wonder Minnesota is nowhere near a cup-contender.
King landed the best ... Booger landed more = draw. As a sidenote, can anyone name a worse player to ever take a regular shift in NHL history than Boogaard??? This guy could even score in my rec league.
Boogaard landed more shots, King landed the best shot. Called it a draw, although Boogaard controlled the fight. I like the way King got this going, right thing to do, right time to do it, right way to do it.
glad DJ King is back
Have to go with draw from what I saw on this clip--both guys landed some great shots. Nobody will ever mistake King for Hordichuk.
Draw on the textbook approach against a bigger man by King: get in close early and get your shots in, including the bloody nose or whatever it was. And then he hung on to narrowly avoid the inevitable beatdown at the end. Earned King a draw, I guess.
Nice fight. The fact that so many picked both as winners indicates I am correct with my assessment that this is a DRAW.
Good Fight...called it a draw but I could see an edge to King. Does anyone else wanna see Rypien vs King?
good fight. givin it a 9 and a draw, possibly edge king. DJ did a pretty good job gettin in close and stripping boogie of his best weapon ( reach ). some nice trading there too
great scrap and DRAW. King bloodied the boogeyman, which does not happen often, however boogard fought a great technical fight.....he doesn't generally need to be very good technically, however he had king tied up 90% of the fight.
Close to a draw until the damage |King caused with the two best punches of the fight. K nowing Boogaard he would have returned if he could have so injury was enough to keep him out of the rest of the game and questionable for upcoming games.
http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/players/playerpage/273511/derek-boogaard Boogaard scratched Tuesday: Wild LW Derek Boogaard did not play Tuesday against the Oilers after suffering facial injuries during a fight on Sunday. Boogaard was beaten and bloodied by D.J. King of the Blues.
Not a SLB fan but I really am impressed with this King; man did he crush BoogyMan with a right. Wow!
Great fight. Especially when you see the height advantage Boogaard has and yet King still bloodies him up. I'mma give this one to King 'cause he did surprisingly well against the Jolly Green Giant.
love to see the big kids drop em
That article on concussions says Boogaard got one in this fight. If that's the case, we'll have to go with a win for King.
dj king giving the boogeyman nightmares.....boogeys face was a mess...41.7% of you need 2 watch the additional video or get glasses
Good for King, well fought. One day a bigger boogier fighter will emerge. Then we'll talk shit about him.
DJ King is the best relatively new fighter I've seen in a long time. Edge to King for landing the better power punches.
What a messed up way to make your hockey living.....ouch.
Sorry Boogaard fans. He lost this one. Don't see it that often but he took some abuse. Big props to King. Boogaard got chopped down to size a bit and looked a mess. It's not about how many thrown, it's about landing. Either way, great bout.
Crown the King!
Good fight, edge king.
good fight,king gets win boogaard face was a mess. boogaard did come back strong but the damage was done.
nice scrap... good job boogaard, played 11 sec in the game.. waste of roster spot..
DJ King playing in like his 4th game of the year, goes against a guy 6in bigger than him, and he sends the guy to the dressing room!!! Boogaard did not return to the game after this fight!! I dont know how you can say Boogaard won this fight?? Ya he threw more punches but did you see the p***y body shot!! lol give me a break!! DJ King MIGHT be the toughest guy in the league
Boo has quantity, but King has quality. Nice bout!! Bottom line - one fighter had to leave the game for medical attention while the other finished the game. Win King.
slight edge to king
Boogard didn't come back. End. Of. Story.
Nice effort by King, but Boogaard was in-control and had the upper-hand. ....After the initial flurry in the beginning, King had to settle for just trying to tie-up Boogaard.
Boy, the voting is so polarized on this one. Looking at the voting, a draw should be the result I would think. An extremely good fight though I don't see an 8.2. It's about even through the first bit, but after 13 seconds of *Actual* fighting, King never throws another punch while Boogaard never stops trying. Boogie wins this one Upon second watching, and I wouldn't say this within a 1000 miles of King, but does anyone else feel he fights a bit like a girl-head down and throwing wildly? If Boogaard had lost his helmet, I bet there would have been some hair pulling.
W for Boogaard. Having said that - King did great against who I think is the reining champ in the NHL right now.
Boogaard won this, guys: he got more hard punches and did more than King.
Win Boogaard. Yes, King cut him, but big B landed more. King is as tough as they come, but it looked like he really messed up his hand again.
Watching the fight from the stands of the game made it look lopsided toward Boogaard. Hearing that crowd of 18,585 screaming who Boogaard knocked King's helmet off was unreal. BUT after watching the replay here it showed a closer fight. Boogaard left the ice cause of blood, which you have to do, and if you look at the stats, King didn't play after this fight either, so you can't call it at that. Fun fight. - Draw.
Booger gets it for the lovely helmet spinner. A close one. *just watched the extra video, not so sure now, King really popped Boogaard one just before Boogie knocked his helmet off*
King got the best shot in to bloody Boogaards nose, but the Boogeyman controlled the fight for the W.
good brawl, call it a draw, although you can make a fair, and logical argument either way . or you can be a complete moron , and spew crap out of your swale-hole like black ice, bluesrule, and of course the ever sub-moronic sedinfan.
How can you give the fight to King just because Boogaard was bleeding. He took one punch and didn't show any affects other than a bloody nose. Boogey threw and landed a lot more punches - that's how you win a fight not by giving a guy a bloody nose. Clear win for the boogeyman.
I give it to the Boogey Man, based on the fact that he was more active and threw more, and probably landed more too. King did a lot of damage, but he sorta stopped throwin' late, and Boogey was able to land a few more. Still, King was able to muscle him quite a bit, and against Boogey that's no small feat. Great fight.
Anyone who says King won is FULL of [email protected] think The boogey man is a freak and shouln't even be allowed on the ice but he won this GREAT fight An AWESOME SHOWING by King who has nothing to be ashamed of and I would like to give it to him but LETS BE HONEST GUYS!!!!!!!!!! Its not golf there are no handicaps.. Hey Scoobycub.....I still say The boggey man gets the win because although King made a mess of his face HE did not stop the enforcer in "THE FIGHT"Boogey was stillfightin at the end and King didn't seem to have anything left...........Your points and reasoning on giving King the win are the BEST arguments out there!!!!!!!!
Gave it a draw. Good scrap! Kings punches did more damage, Boogard a bit more active.
What a great scrap!!! Nice work boys Edge to Boogy
Boogie man with the nod here,DJ landed a couple then hung on when the big guy didn't crumble.
Helluva fight there... I gotta give the edge to Boogard... just because King didn't look to interested in continuing at the end there. Didn't look like he got too much in there after cutting Boogard, but I could be swayed either way. Bottom line, one of the better fights I've seen in a while.
This is definitely a foty nominee so far! King lands a great right that broke Boogaard's nose, Boogey comes back with a flurry of rights. Draw/edge Boogaard
NICE FIGHT """DRAW"""
Introducing the return of the leagues' next heavyweight champ. Draw, but considering the size difference, and the fact that Boogaard spent almost the entire fight backpeddling in reverse... 19 is the new 24. Now that the rust is gone, I'd love to see him go with current champ, Goddard.
Wow ! Great fight...and very close. I think Boogard underestimated and took King for granted at the start. King got in two good rights till Boogard adjusted and started throwing. At the end of it all Boogie man was the busier of the two...have to give it to Boogard. Good one boys !!
"Minnesota’s bruiser Derek Boogaard(notes) got beat up in a fight with D.J. King(notes) less than 4 minutes into the game—and just 11 seconds into Boogaard’s first shift. His nose, forehead and face were bloodied. He went to the locker room and didn’t return". This is the St. Paul, Minnesota post! more or less says it all. This isn't boxing you idiots with your comments on points and more punches. When you play hockey and get your face re-arranged you lose, even if you out punch someone. Win King!
