Was Strachan thinking of going left handed? BOOM. W Bradley.

Posted by Detroit_Caps on March 04, 2011 at 06:56 AM

Dont know what Brads did in the off season, but he is fighting the best he has in his career. . . keep it up

Posted by st. bernard on March 07, 2011 at 10:56 PM

bradley whips strachan

Posted by faceman on March 04, 2011 at 07:51 AM

learn from that one, tyson. *you're doing it wrong*

Posted by lovejoy on March 04, 2011 at 02:49 AM

is it possible to be KO'd by bodyshots? Bradley hit chest and shoulder only...

Posted by RedWolf on March 04, 2011 at 12:56 PM

@Lovjoy - Yes, body shot KO's are possible, if your name is Steve MacIntyre. I'm pretty sure Bradley caught the back of Strachan's jaw (below the ear) with his right hand at the 11-12 sec mark. A decent punch to that spot pretty much drops everyone.

Posted by Behn Wilson on March 03, 2011 at 09:48 PM

Bradley, much like Morris, can be an above average scrapper, on occasion. In this case, he uses a clever, well timed, jersey- yank to get Strachan hopelessly out of position, followed by a ''relentless pounce attack'' to close the deal.

Posted by DARCY T on March 06, 2011 at 05:02 AM

win looks like tko but it seems like bradley hit him on his shoulder. but you dont go down like that after punch to your shoulder.gave it 5...quite a good year for bradley.he used to lose every fight

Posted by The Peach on March 04, 2011 at 03:38 PM

never seen a guy get dropped by a punch to the collarbone. regardless...strachan needs to sign up for boogard's fighting camp. that's the worst form i have seen since the last time stortini dropped the mitts.

Posted by staceyb on March 04, 2011 at 04:12 PM

Ouch, you are better man than I, Tyson Strachan.

Posted by ahartnack on March 04, 2011 at 04:32 PM

' With all the bleeding he's done over the years, I thought Bradley was never going to win a fight but....he proved me wrong. To the people ho voted for the Blue, the guy who went down LOST THE FIGHT BY TKO. '

Posted by rocky 1 on March 04, 2011 at 11:28 PM

Second fight with a fighter fighting a none fighter so outcome not in question win bradley!

Posted by hal29 on March 06, 2011 at 12:58 AM

Bradley with the win but can someone tell me what punch landed that made Tyson drop like that?

Posted by kimo_coyote on March 03, 2011 at 11:36 PM

Bradley opened up with a good shot and closed the deal with another.

Posted by SABREHATRED on March 03, 2011 at 09:59 PM

Strachen gets DROPPED TO HIS KNEES like a PUSSSY sabre fan at a Adam Lambert HOT DOG's ONLY PARTY HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

Posted by potosicc on March 04, 2011 at 12:43 AM

Bradley with the win but typical to seek out fight with a non fighter. Don't believe too much damage, Strachan looked pretty good rest of game.

Posted by BrettB on March 10, 2011 at 10:56 AM

Looked like Strachen hurt his hand on his only connect to Bradley. Brads then nighty-nighted him!

Posted by Big_Goon on March 04, 2011 at 11:28 AM

As a Caps fan I'm used to seeing Bradley skate off the ice for stitches. When he squared off with a guy @ 25lbs bigger than him I was expecting the routine skate to the locker room for repairs.... However Bradley caught Strachan and dropped him. Not the most graceful or powerful punches, but he caught him right on the button. Can't believe it, but KO win for Bradley.

Posted by bluesrule08 on March 04, 2011 at 01:33 PM

at first i didn't see how bad bradley hit him and didn't think much of it but when they showed the replay i saw strachans head like snap back and then i knew that he was hit hard. what a clown. glad he got sent back to peoria.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on March 04, 2011 at 04:33 PM

Damn, Brads tagged him good. W Bradley

Posted by bruins rule on March 03, 2011 at 11:12 PM

bradley gets the win in this fight.

Posted by pascaloup on March 04, 2011 at 07:02 AM

And the winner is ...MB

Posted by sulley71 on March 04, 2011 at 09:55 AM

Last right by Bradley does the damage, wish I could of heard Panger's call on that one!

Posted by fernben8 on March 06, 2011 at 01:22 PM

Bradley is perhaps under-rated... Doesn't fight often but usally for a good reason. He reminds me of and as Behn Wison would a poor man's Prust. No contest here, Tyson gets TKO's as he peeks over his shoulder.

Posted by muhoop on March 03, 2011 at 09:47 PM

Another Blue goes down. Yawn, sick of the Blues fighting and loosing. After making the playoffs some 20 years in a row they have been dissapointing in every way. Happy to see Hull, Shanny, Pronger, Stevens, and so many others do well after leaving the LOU.

Posted by koolpunch on March 03, 2011 at 11:00 PM

Wow, talk about seizing an opportunity.... Bradley saw an opening, then took three mean swings. Each one closer to the target, until....bam....skate to the box.

Posted by ChiHawks4ThaCup on March 05, 2011 at 01:41 AM

Bradley wins easily.

Posted by Thursday385 on October 21, 2011 at 07:55 AM

MATTY B!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by mr hockey on March 05, 2011 at 11:31 AM

can you say KO ha ha blues suck easy win Bradley lol

Posted by ogie ogiltorpe on March 03, 2011 at 09:39 PM

Smelling Salts Strachan seems the appropriate moniker here

Posted by Paul_from_NoVa on March 16, 2011 at 02:14 AM

How can you not love Brads, a Knight in a Caps jersey? This is an energy line guy who just takes care of business on both sides of the ice and never hesitates to step up to get his mates to start moving their feet. I think he knocked Strachan out with a throat shot (I was clotheslined once, with the same result: a phosphorescent flash of light, and out I went).

Posted by RoadRiverRail on March 04, 2011 at 04:26 AM

Wow. A KO off a body blow. Who'd'a thunk?

Posted by sedinfan on March 03, 2011 at 10:11 PM

Ouch, Bradley wins one easily and Strachan trying to figue out what planet he is on.

Posted by mactee on March 03, 2011 at 11:50 PM

finally one of these goofs who fight sideways fails the chin test. KO

Posted by Trailblaza05 on March 04, 2011 at 11:22 PM

FYI for all you haters of Bradley saying he hit him in the chest. He definatly caught him on the jaw cause he dropped and stumbled of the ice. I dont think your woosy from a "collar bone" punch

Posted by The_Superhoo on March 05, 2011 at 01:06 AM


Posted by simonstribe17 on March 04, 2011 at 12:59 PM

If you voted for Strachan you should be banished from this site!!! Clear win for Brads who has really come along as a decent fighter. Great job getting the Caps fired up as they go into the locker room during intermission.

Posted by b.t.wilson on March 03, 2011 at 10:01 PM

SLOW DOWN BRADLEY DAMNIT, SAVOUR IT!!! SLOW DOOOWWWNNN! i can't imagine your adrenaline after winning a fight like that at home, it'd be like catching 4 of 5 plus the powerball. 8.

Posted by GreatMurray on March 04, 2011 at 06:48 AM

Almost a knockout...Bradley smokes the guy, kicks sand in his face and steals his girlfriend.

Posted by robrose711 on March 04, 2011 at 08:03 AM

Brads kicked ass.

Posted by mctuttle on March 03, 2011 at 10:34 PM

Water is wet.

Posted by DanielleinDC on March 03, 2011 at 09:09 PM

It was short, but sweet. Strachan was staggering to the locker room. Brads owned him.

Posted by tbruchey2112 on March 04, 2011 at 01:00 PM

Brads rearranged Strachan's face. Period.

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on March 03, 2011 at 11:09 PM

MB rapes!

Posted by killerkelly on March 03, 2011 at 11:54 PM

That's three in a row for Brads since his return...must have done some work on the heavybag while he was off.

Posted by Willy WILL on March 05, 2011 at 08:09 AM

KOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... Ouch... Win Bradley! Good old Ottawa valley boy...

Bradley is a beast!

Posted by Laytes29 on March 04, 2011 at 03:03 AM

Pretty obvious. Bradley with the KO.

Posted by Bostonslugfest on March 04, 2011 at 10:25 AM

HOLY HELL!!!!. Now thats the way to drop someone. way to go Bradley... making it look like a school yard bullying. Bruins need to pick this kid up next year

Posted by hefnerta on March 17, 2011 at 11:49 PM

This is why I love Matt Bradley. He went from the team bleeder to an enforcer in just a couple of seasons.

Posted by perezj on March 05, 2011 at 08:54 AM

What a beat down, too bad it was not Janssens

Posted by RCSheppy on March 04, 2011 at 05:06 PM

KO for Matt Bradley, didn't think i'd say that.

Posted by chad420 on March 04, 2011 at 12:09 PM

Welcome to the Twilight Zone...Brads wins again...this time by TKO

Posted by Mighty Atom on March 04, 2011 at 10:11 AM

Bradley won a fight ???!!!!!!

Posted by FHgrad99 on March 04, 2011 at 03:32 AM

Strachan got clobbered. He lost control of Bradley and paid the price.

Posted by xtylerx on March 03, 2011 at 09:51 PM


Posted by travist on March 03, 2011 at 11:26 PM

damn poor strachan got turned around and pounded. i'd run down the hallway too!! doesn't look like any landed flush except that last bomb.

Posted by Redzilla on March 03, 2011 at 09:18 PM

Wow......Bradley with a convincing win, that does not happen much for him. He is usually on the other end.

Posted by Langway on March 05, 2011 at 01:01 AM

I can't believe that there are people out there that voted this a draw or voted Strachan the winner. Clear victory by Bradley. Great finishing shot.

Posted by kkdowning on March 04, 2011 at 01:01 PM

Second time in a row that Bradley skates off claerly victorious instead of asking the linesman "is that my blood or his blood?"

Posted by JWeaverJr on March 04, 2011 at 09:45 AM


Posted by [email protected] on March 04, 2011 at 06:07 PM

Brads is not the best fighter, but he's tough as nails and throws a great punch
