Other Penalties: Adam McQuaid received a roughing.
Boyle drops the gloves to up his fantasy value after the ill timed and off-sides slapper,... #54 w/the W in a ho-hum tussle....
Chintzy crap like that should be dealt with as it happens, and it was. Good on McQuaid , would have liked to see Boyle laid out though ...
Decent fight. Better than most
i expected alot more, especially from McQuaid. Boyle is a so-so fighter and this should've been easy business, but Boyle held him off and made it a fight to forget. the funny part was seeing McQuaid get wound up in the first place ... what BIG girl!
Boyle might find it works better if you drop *both* gloves.
Boyle was lucky that McQuaid never got going on him.
Boyle's just not a fighter in any sense of the word, and I think McQuaid could have picked a better opponent for his first go-round of the year. Don't get me wrong, I don't think he cherry-picks, but this one was a waste of time.
Dark side Quaid all the way.
McQuaid was in the wrong but Boyle is 0-2 against the Bruins
who has boyle with 4%?! how do you get votes for a win when you don't land a punch?! mcquaid with easy W! best thing boyle did was not fight back because mcquaid would've taken him apart.
Win to McQuaid....I said it before & I'll say it again Boyle is pound for pound the worst fighter in the NHL.
boyle does not fight well he just doesn't have it within him at this point...he fights very scared
Boyle seems to have picked up a fight tip or two during the offseason but he still couldn't fight his way out of a wet paper bag. W-McQ but not convincingly.
I do not know why Boyle fights when he is a six foot seven whoos!Win McQuaid!
Poor Boyle. So big, such a cream puff. You'd think a year as Prust Roomate would get him some type of minimal fight game, but its not too be.
mcquaid gets the win in this fight.
Easy w for quaid, not too much here but nothing at all from boyle
Boyle rarely wins his fights even with his size...win mcquaid!
McQuaid gets a jump on Boyle and throws a lop sided beating. It could have been worse for Boyle who just hung on and threw very little.
Boyle's left hand glove never game off ! No wonder he lost !
McQuaid beats a poor fighter in Boyle ...
McQuaid with a win over a non-fighter in Boyle. Coming from a college background it seems Boyle just never "got" fighting, at least he's protecting himself better. Haha. Dumb selfish move by McQuaid. Picking up an extra two because you are upset you got hit with a shot at the whistle is not acceptable. Standing up for a team mate WOULD make the extra penalty okay. Anyhow, McQuaid didn't disgrace himself by losing to Boyle and Boyle continues to show he won't run even though he has no idea whatsoever of how to fight. I like McQuade but he has to be smarter.
Where was Hal Gill to make this an all-colleagiate, slow mo, air shots specials ??? Ha Ha. Someone said Wolfey got beatdown in practise by Robbins !? That was nothing, although he looked silly when he slipped.
How is Boyle that big yet that afraid to throw a punch? Seems strange to me.
Darth Quader with the easy W. He still doesnt look like he has recovered from the concussion and blood clots. He got beat down pretty badly by a Providence Bruin in their exhibition game last week.
Brian please keep your gloves on, you're gonna get yourself wicked hurt.
Quiet win for McQuaid
Don't shoot the puck into someone else's legs after the whistle. The Massachusetts rich kid gets his butt kicked by the Boston Bruin from PEI.
Darth Quaider starts the year off with the easy W.
McQ will dust this clown every time.
McQuaid with"not on my watch".Boyle responds with "oh shit " .Win McQuaid. I don`t think Boyle shot that puck on purpose though.
McQuaid looks like he gives a little mercy to the non fighter. Boyle can't even get him off his skates in desperation. Easy win for McQuaid.
Boyle is just too slow...can't fight...takes way too long to deliver a punch. Mcquaid wins...tough kid. Nice to hear another good fight call in a Boston Game. Obviously that means not having to listen to Edwards slobbering on himself and his leg is tingling.
Easy win, McQuaid
McQuaid is an honest player. Nothing dirty about his game. He will go to war over principle, and he packs monstrous artillery. Probably among the fastest strikers in the league. Props to Boyle for dropping the gloves so quickly without warning or hesitation.
win McQuaid. Boyle is a waste of size
mcquaid owned this fight
win mcquaid but i expected he will beat him even more
Good spirited scrap, I liked McQuaid for standing up for himself.
Boyle was looking to get out...lone wolf all the way
boyle was sorry, mcquaid punched him. and sedinfan fan points it out, mcquaid is fun to watch, a good hard nosed kid who can fight.
Woman in the front row is trippin. A hockey game seems like an odd place to dose mushrooms.
At his size, Boyle clearly needs to spend some more time watching "Youngblood." And it's clear that CustomBrokeBack is now inviting Hugh-HuggyBear-Cares up to his tent for some quality time, Canadien style. I wonder which Canadien city will riot, pout, and act like children this year..... Burn baby burn!!!!!
Brian Boyle is worse at fighting than he is at hockey, and he is really bad at hockey....
McQuaid with the edge.
I agree that McQuaid is underrated as a fighter, but can handle himself very well in the midst of Lucic and Thornton...easy win here for McQuaid
McQuaid was not happy with Boyle shooting the puck at his leg after the whistle and showed his displeasure in the fight . Really like what McQuaid brings keep it up ..
I think it's safe to say there will be a rematch in the final matchup between the two teams. Unfortunately for Boyle, he didn't shoot the puck into the legs of say Tomas Kaberle. Don't poke the bear Brian.
McQuaid nails him
Boyle is a pretty crappy fighter. Easy win McQuaid.
boyle was covering up like a bitch and barley threw any punches mcquaid could have really hurt him boyle is lucky mcquaid took it easy on him towards the end of the fight mcquaid could have hit him many times boyle was wide open mcquaid had mercy on boyle
Mcquaid obviously sees its Boyle. Why Boyle doesn't spend a summer learning to fight is beyond me. 6'5' 250 playing with some snarl could be a huge asset to nyr, and guarantee boyle a long career.
.plz go watch( Embellishment City )on youtube for see real bruins
Pretty close fight, just traded blows back and forth.
I am surprised that McQuaid did not win more convincingly
Lone Wolf McQuaid is obviously still recovering from his blood clot removal surgery. Boyle hangs in there pretty well and avoids what could have been a severe beating. Win for Adam in a fairly lackluster 4.
McQuaid is so under rated. When you are on a team with Thornton, Lucic and Chara, Mcquaid kind of sneaks under the radar.
how can u say .......easy win !!! just bruins fans .... ADAM MCQUAID is the kind of player always choose the one who he fight , if he cant choose , he will not go open fight
Maybe Boyle will think twice in the Future about shooting the puck after the whistle. He deserved more than he got. Adam took it easy on him and should of just laid him out. Go Bruins.
Darth's a tough kid....Boyle hasn't really fought much, and it was pretty obvious....
Gregory Campbells Daddys Refs don't know what a instigator penalty is. Typical chickensh*t move by McQuaid...he must be learning from Lucy.
