To show you how old I am, I can still remember when Mike Rupp was a hockey player.

Posted by bammer24 on March 22, 2012 at 12:33 PM

Draw. Where the hell is Scott ?Proved to be useless after all.To many Ranger fans being biased tonight. Though if this fight kept going it was heading Boultons way.Next time rangers play the Bruins I think Rupp has to go with Lucic two big boys.Good way to end the season.

not enough video footage to tell a winner, for me it seems it was a draw

Posted by Jackiep on March 20, 2012 at 04:05 PM

Giving these 3 fights a draw, as I suspect we missed many punches. Kind of silly that Torts was so surprised-everyone in the tri-state area knew this would be a tough game. What was John Scott picked up for if not for this game? I'm not saying he SHOULD have played, but why get him then?

rupper wins it

Posted by umaksgx on March 20, 2012 at 12:05 AM

Rupp is asshole

Posted by tpr1960 on March 20, 2012 at 01:05 PM

Chuck and duck Rupp was lucky Boulton let up when he lost his jersey. Rupp is the biggest overated goon in the league. Ranger homers out in force again, can't wait til you lose the 1st round.

GREAT to see a good ol donny brook! That is a fun game to watch! The Red Wings can [email protected]# can that TEAM LADY BYNG BORING hockey!

Posted by Gustis on March 24, 2012 at 11:27 PM

Sure Rupp got more in but Boulton also had a harder one, Rupp's nhl career is just plumetting.

Rupp was the clear winner--if you could follow the camera trying to cover all three fights at once.

Posted by Lucy Brown on March 20, 2012 at 06:02 AM

win rupp.

Posted by capsfloors on March 20, 2012 at 01:13 PM

Rupp wins. Oh and tpr1960 sucks!

Posted by fourpoints on March 21, 2012 at 07:48 PM

Nice 6 man scrap...I love this stuff. Win - The comeback kid - Rupp. I see John Scott is doing what he did best in Chicago and Minnesota..For whatever reason not showing up.

Posted by 5fourfighten on March 19, 2012 at 10:38 PM

Rupp takes it

Posted by mudman55 on March 20, 2012 at 09:51 AM

How much fun is this????? Givin it to Rupp, although if Boulton landed that right Rupp would be in the hospital right now.

Posted by raymi2 on March 20, 2012 at 06:44 AM

Good old hockey!, just missing 4 players to drop their gloves!

From what I saw looks like Rupp takes this one

Posted by rocky 1 on March 21, 2012 at 04:12 PM

Win Rupp!

Posted by ferdip on March 20, 2012 at 06:43 PM

Boulton isn't even in the same league as Rupp and he is lucky Rupp really didn't hurt him. Its a shame the Devils have to watch these fight on video again. They tried this the last game and those guys count fight the Ranger well then so the try again and lose that weak

Posted by kinga101 on March 20, 2012 at 08:23 PM

Rupp continues to have a very impressive year and wins this one.

Posted by Bakes923 on March 19, 2012 at 11:58 PM

Rupper wins another Heavyweight bout,these guys fight more than Ali and Frazier did!!Rupper was laying some powerful jersey jabs that looked to do some damage!!

Posted by DARCY T on March 20, 2012 at 04:56 PM

win rupp and 7

Posted by Joceron on March 19, 2012 at 11:28 PM

Wow, another fantastic (for this fan) start to a NYR NJD game. The've done this before, and in that game the same type of play followed. 59:59:59 of really tough clean (for the most part) game. We can see Rupper using the left effectively early and landed more power shots. Rupper, 7

Posted by bruins rule on March 20, 2012 at 08:14 AM

rupp gets the win in this fight.

Posted by sknowlton on March 19, 2012 at 11:39 PM

Rupp completely dominated; Boulton got tossed around like a boneless chicken.

Posted by GreatMurray on March 20, 2012 at 06:51 AM

Boulton is a tough guy but Rupp is just to big and strong. All Rupp. I wonder what's up with all these tie downs coming undone. I have never had a tie down come loose....EVER.

Posted by BigJay on March 20, 2012 at 08:41 AM

Rupp clearly dominates "Wanna Be" Boultan. Boultan gets one jab in at the beginning, otherwise all Rupp through the whole fight.

Posted by subs2422 on March 20, 2012 at 12:06 AM

What a way to start the game off from the drop of the puck, not only was it rupp and boulton but prust and bickel against jansen and carter. brought a lot of energy into the garden from the start. two good teams with playoffs on their minds , and no other way to start it off. great fight by all and set the tone for the game.

Posted by Bob Probert 24 on March 20, 2012 at 05:27 PM

Rupp wins...kept him at arm length while he connected. Nice start to the game!

Posted by mikey178 on March 19, 2012 at 10:39 PM


Posted by jnk07899 on March 20, 2012 at 09:54 AM

Hands down THE GREATEST START TO A HOCKEY GAME OF ALL TIME! That was amazing. 3/3 for Jansen and Rupp starting off their last 3 games here with a fight. Last time we had Rupp and Jansen go, while Boulton and Prust went. i like Rupp vs Boulton and Prust vs Jansen much more. I have to give all of this an overall 10. Carter and Bickel had the best fight. Gave that a draw with edge to Bickel. Prust and Jansen was a draw and Rupp had the edge over Boulton. Amazing!

Posted by slarrivee11 on March 19, 2012 at 09:42 PM

Thats how you start a game!!!!!!!! I dont even care who wins the game or the fight ..They all kick ass!

Posted by KeepItSharp on March 21, 2012 at 07:27 PM

My dad is a Rangers fan and showed this to me this morning before I left for school. He told me to find someone on my bus that I hate and beat em up like this. I had a few people in mind... But hands down, BEST FIGHT EVER.

Posted by nickydubs26 on March 20, 2012 at 10:39 AM

rupp fuck that man up

Posted by MakaveliTrained on March 20, 2012 at 10:34 AM

Rupp was holding on at the end there, this was a draw

Posted by meffner22 on March 20, 2012 at 10:42 AM

I don't see how so many people can give Rupp the win? Yeah he was dominating in the the beginning, but Bolts got the last 2 shots in and you have to take into account the difference in wingspan. Anyone that fights Rupp is at a distinct disadvantage because of his size. Good Scrap

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on March 05, 2015 at 05:09 PM

And this folks is why we love old school hockey. Rupp seemed to handle Boulton fairly well, but the true fight was Carter and Bickel. Lots of blood lost in that fray. I wish we could have watched all three at separate times.

Posted by chad420 on March 20, 2012 at 08:20 AM

win Rupp....this was awesome

Posted by mike2323 on March 20, 2012 at 12:50 PM

Rupp with an edge here.

Posted by Big_Fat_Dan on March 20, 2012 at 08:54 AM

Old time hockey, i love it! What footage i got, i'd say Rupper takes this, but had to tell with everything going on.

Posted by Rags4Life on March 19, 2012 at 10:07 PM

Boulton later took a boneheaded boarding penalty that allowed the Rangers to go up 3-2

Posted by kkdowning on March 21, 2012 at 09:21 PM

Giving the edge to Rupp, who used his reach advantage to get the win in a close one

Posted by Puckstopper30 on March 19, 2012 at 09:37 PM

Big fan of Boulton, but out of his league a bit......Rupp with the win.

Posted by FightsOfHockey on March 19, 2012 at 08:35 PM

Camera had trouble getting this one but from what I saw it looked decent and both were landing ok I'll call it a draw and if we get a better angle I will change my decision. This fight also looked to be the least entertaining of the 3.

Posted by TrueBlue26 on March 19, 2012 at 10:15 PM


Posted by nait on March 21, 2012 at 10:40 PM

i really wanna know who the fool in charge of the cameras was thinking you got 3 fights at once put a min of one camera on each everyone knows they have prolly 25 cameras there
