Other Penalties: Hendricks received a roughing.
McQuaid got the better hits in but Hendricks got the take down
Draw. I see all the Bruins homers are on here voting for McQuaid. Also keep in mind, he was the first one to go down.
Improbable as it may seem, I think, that I may have just agreed with Pierre Maquire's analysis of a hockey fight??? Then again, I have a cold, and it's possible that this cough syrop is well past it's expiry date.
I agree with the peeps that call this bout a draw... six punches connect, and none were damaging
Glad to see McQuaid fight more, but this one does not go long enough.
Draw at best. Hendricks threw McQuaid to the ground. Not that hard to do when both are on skates. Just because you threw more punches doesn't mean all of them hit or any of them did anything.
draw but, this fight would have been bad news for MH in open ice.
I don't see how Hendricks wins a fight he throws 1 punch in! The take down is the only thing that keeps it a draw for him as he was just holding on until they hit the ice.
Draw. McQuaid with throwing the better punches but Hendricks with the take down
draw.so hendricks was lucky i guess...4
Not much here, I saw it McQuaid early...Hendricks with a stronger finish. Draw.
Sad to say Hendricks is the Caps enforcer. Hendricks with a short right to start then McQuaid with a flurry of right hand misses then Hendricks with a right/shove to knock McQuaid down. Very similar to their previous fight. This was a draw. McQuaid has yet to fight a legit heavyweight in his NHL career making it a little tough to assess how good he really is. Asham was probably the best fighter he has faced and that resulted in a decisive loss for McQuaid. I just can't understand why Rechlicz was sent down before this game or not dressing Erskine. You had Thornton challenging Brouwer for no apparent reason near the start of the game. It will be interesting to see if Buffalo shows any balls Wed. because they still haven't redeemed themselves for the cheap hit on Miller by Lucic. BigEdPVD - I don't think you would find anyone on this site that considers Konopka a true legit heavyweight or real good fighter. I'm talking about guys like McGrattan, Parros, Carkner, Orr, Kassian etc. and by the way, McQuaid has fought Konopka 3 times and has not exactly owned him with 2 close wins and a loss.
Good job by Hendricks, keeping McQuaid away from a skill guy. Tied up McQuaid no punches landed...I know Edward's will say McQuaid knocked him out but it was a draw.
Draw -nobody landed anything. And McQ wasn't gonna "take Laich off the ice". Just holding him off after the tie-up, nothing more than that. Until Hendricks decided to play "Mr. Helper".
well first things first. mcquaid with the majority of the punches that don't land. and then hendricks with the solid takedown. i call it a draw. and where the hell did they get a roughing call from? he skated over there talked some sh*t and they both dropped the gloves...i see no roughing.
draw and quader still rules
Draw. Its amazing how some posters discredit Hendricks or any player willing to stand up. Half the dorks on here couldn't stand on skates let alone throw a punch on skates. Show a little respect to all the players we watch no matter what team.
Pretty blah fight, Lucky for Hendricks he pushed Mickey down to be honest, but it is what it is.
Mcquaid is the only one that tossed a punch as the other guy held on for his life
Hard to say it looks like McQuaid landed some of those punches in that flurry but that was about it
Not much of a fight,give the edge to McQuaid tho,just a slip at the end tho!!
Not a great fight by any means. As McQuaid was goin for the KO, Hendricks just wanted the takedown and to get the hell outta there. I think he left the stadium after that fight when he skated off that fast lol
Edge to quaida. He wanted to trade and do some damage and hendricks just wanted to hold on. Quiad slipped. King just so you know when a guy falls or slips doesn't mean the other guy wins and for those to say quaid doesn't fight anyone tough are a bunch of morons. Oh and how is the cup tainted? They won by physical play and hard work. The way a real team should win. Kind of like the old wings.
I dont give points for takedowns in hockey fights.
Edge to McQ
Most punches by McQuaid. Take-down by Hendricks
Looks like the camera man was drinking Saturday night and couldnt handle the early afternoon assignment.
McQ wins over Mr. Helper Hendricks ...... not a lot of activity and Hendricks should have been tossed
mcquaid gets the win in this fight.
McQuaid a heavyweight? He's listed at 190....Hendricks outweighs him. That's all the Caps have for an "enforcer"?
Nice win McQuaid.
Kinga101...did you forget his win against Zenon Konopka earlier this week?
Why do you pathetic Bruin fans vote for your boys when they don't win?
Hendricks took him.
Not a single punch landed so Hendricks gets the win via takedown
Looked to me that Hendricks got the only clean hits in. McQuaid swung violently and repetitively but seemed to miss. Close win to Hendricks.
Quirky Campbells Suck Hole Refs give Hendricks 2 for roughing. Are all the refs trying to blow Quirky so they can work the playoffs. Baby sitting the Bruins seems to be a familiar theme...its how they won their 2011 Tainted Cup
Only Boston fans see Mcquaid as the winner here as usual they only see black/gold. MCQUAID LOSES TO A MUCH SMALLER MAN.........EMBARASSING........ BOSTON SUPPORTERS LIKE TO RE-CREATE AND MAKE THEIR OWN HISTORY.....TRULY LAUGHABLE.
Another Boston massacre , Hendricks taken off on stretcher and taken by ambulance to nearest hospital because of repeated " jackhammers" to his face, lucky to be alive. Oh,wait. I'm not from Boston.... draw!
u can be a boston fan ..but seriously , if MCQUAID win here ..... is cuz i dont know what a fight is all about ! .... MCQUAID is truly a heart fighter and i like him , but here ..i would say avantage to ...hendricks
easy win for hendricks...everytime adam mcquaid fight a good fighter he loose..
Giving the win to Hendricks in what should be a draw to offset the delirium of Bruins fans seeing mirages of a major battle.
Total draw. Replay from high on-glass angle shows nothing landed. Homers spend a lot of time on this site pumping up their guys. Weak.
Draw all day long.
How can anyone pick a winner in this? Bunch of homers. This is a clear draw. None of McQuaids or Hendricks punches really landed.
Draw... Nothing appeared to land. For those of you scoring takedowns.. Takedowns are done for several reasons -- one combatant is scared and proceeds to wrestle for a take down to save his a%#, one combatant is too tired to go on, one combatant loses his balance (hopefully not on purpose), or both combatants can't fight for sh%$ and simply choose to wrestle until they fall... Last time I checked this was HockeyFights, with fists, upright, on skates.... not wrestling or MMA. Therefore simpletons, no points for takedowns.
draw, edge mcquaid. he actually landed something, not alot, but something.
Smart man to take McQuaid down after eating several punches. Winner McQuiad
...Hendricks comes-out on top,....
How do people have McQuaid winning that? Draw at best for McQuaid (he should have won the fight on paper, but Hendricks held his own)
