Close, but giving it to tootoo. Great that they came up laughing and showed respect after that fight

Posted by tflyer on February 05, 2013 at 08:50 PM

Nice fight I'll give it to Tootoo NOTE : To some Bruin fans you can bleed and win a fight

Posted by ChiefJerseyJab on February 05, 2013 at 08:45 PM

slight edge tootoo. pumped for all you Detroit fans.

Posted by kimo_coyote on February 06, 2013 at 12:37 AM

Draw but if had to give win, edge Tootoo

Posted by fernben8 on February 05, 2013 at 11:34 PM

This was a better outing for Begin than their 1st match ( 4 yrs ago )...when Tootoo TKO'd Begin. Good intensity by both. Had Begin early, Tootoo late. DRAW.

Posted by AC1026 on February 05, 2013 at 10:30 PM

DRAW!! Great fight...TooToo is something to watch. Have never seen Begin fight but he held his own.

Posted by SharkTank19 on February 06, 2013 at 08:03 PM

Awesome fight, I'd call it a draw. Begin with the early punches and Tootoo with some good closers at the end. Tootoo with a slight edge for the take down.

Posted by DARCY T on February 07, 2013 at 05:31 AM

first begin's fight since 09/10 and he did very well.i think he landed a little bit more than tootoo but tootoo finished stronger...draw

Posted by ThrowdownSJ408 on February 05, 2013 at 09:46 PM

great fight!

Great job

Posted by SURESHOT27 on February 06, 2013 at 11:10 AM

Wow, even though a lot happened during this fight and watching over and over again, I can't determine a clear winner - DRAW "look at that son of a gun stand in there!!!"

Posted by hawkwing24 on February 06, 2013 at 05:07 PM

Begin clearly the win here- most blows BooBoo for TooToo

Posted by staceyb on February 06, 2013 at 05:41 AM

Who'd figure that Bruiser Begin would go toe-to-toe with 2-2?

Posted by Joceron on February 05, 2013 at 11:19 PM

good energy, begin, 5

Posted by sedinfan on February 05, 2013 at 11:33 PM

they look like they both enjoyed that.

Posted by Meatpuppet42 on February 05, 2013 at 10:15 PM

Begin connected to the face Tootoo did not even though he had more punches.

Posted by rossgale on February 06, 2013 at 12:38 AM

Tootoo seems to manhandle his opponents without landing anything significant. Provides a good show, but lacks much punch. Another first shift fight for Tootoo. He saw 6 mins of ice time for a team with a -5 goal differential.

Posted by legion31 on February 06, 2013 at 10:18 AM

begin landed the best punch,tootoo tried to be a wrestler ... edge begin

Posted by 2probert4 on February 06, 2013 at 11:45 AM

Tootoo landed some sissy jabs that don't matter, Begin landed bigger shots which gave PooPoo a bloody nose. This is the worst signing for Detroit in 10 years, if they were going to add a tough guy, Brandon Prust was there and at least that guy can kill a penalty.. Tootoo is a joke of a player, when a chump team like Nashville can't wait to get rid of you, something is up.

Posted by Dub on February 06, 2013 at 11:42 PM

Begin gets the best of ToooToooToooToooo.

Posted by 87CROSBY87 on February 05, 2013 at 11:24 PM

Begin with the best shot of the fight; the shot that bloodies Tootoo. Funny how Tootoo WON fights in Nashville; but reduced to "staged fights" for a living.

Posted by UPitt26 on February 06, 2013 at 03:48 PM

If you think a takedown is a win then Tootoo. But the quality fight came from Begin (even with ankle grabbing)

Posted by K.O.cur_26 on February 06, 2013 at 08:29 AM

How in the blue hell is the voted winner Jordin Tootoo, jesus christ. Begin threw the better punches, landed more and bloodied his nose. Yeah, Tootoo got the takedown, which means jackshit.

Posted by bigjake32 on February 06, 2013 at 12:13 PM


Posted by ryanjs2004 on February 07, 2013 at 09:14 AM

Great to see Begin's 1st fight in 18+ months knock TuTu silly.

Posted by Redneck70 on February 06, 2013 at 04:21 PM

gotta give the win to begin simply because he drew blood from tootoo

Posted by gongermuskegon on February 05, 2013 at 09:24 PM

22 getting er going for the winged wheel, I can see why the preds fans tolerated him Tootoo and a 5

Posted by Behn Wilson on February 06, 2013 at 10:17 AM

Good honest effort by both guys as a bloody nose only seems to fire up Tootoo who quickly switches hands and comes back far enough to win a close one It's not quite the halcyon days of the Bruise Brothers but it's soooo nice to see someone on the Wings finally be able to answer the bell if need be

Posted by tpr1960 on February 06, 2013 at 08:15 PM

TOOTOO !!!!!!

Posted by plp1676 on February 06, 2013 at 02:20 AM

Red Wing fans are getting too excited about Tootoo, I love his spirit but the guy is 5'9", not big enough to keep his teammates safe. He reminds me of a Randy Mckay, we still need a Probert.

Posted by crashandbang on February 06, 2013 at 06:14 PM

I love Toots lol what a little wolverine this kid is. He just overwelms Begin with the lefts. Called it a 6 and 2 2 win.

Posted by BooSanta on February 07, 2013 at 12:27 AM

DosDos is wired this year. Never thought much of him as a fighter. Then he gets on the least penalized team in the last five years and starts racking up the scraps, even getting a few tilts his way. We Begin with, well, Begin and his rights. He runs out of steam after bloodying DosDos nose, then lets DosDos make an inspired comeback. Wow, who thought we'd see the even-keeled Red Wings in this many fights so far, while the normally fistic Flames have only 2 bouts this year?

Posted by rocky 1 on February 06, 2013 at 01:23 AM

Great tilt between two light heavies with the edge to Tootoo!I Give props for Begin hanging in there pretty well for someone not known as a scrapper.

Posted by Kordic64 on February 05, 2013 at 09:12 PM

I'm changing my mind after watching a second time. Slight edge 2 2.

Posted by Thawk on February 05, 2013 at 09:52 PM

Tootoo will have Nunavut. Attaway 22.

Posted by bruins rule on February 16, 2013 at 10:24 AM

tootoo with the win

Posted by GreatMurray on February 06, 2013 at 07:14 PM

Another excellent hockey fight. Tootoo is amazing. He wins this one by a nose (bleed).

Posted by The Mad House on February 05, 2013 at 08:57 PM

I absolutely love Tootoo, he brings a whole new type of energy to Hockeytown! I'm giving him the W here.

Posted by bammer24 on February 05, 2013 at 10:39 PM

Good fight.Good effort by Begin.Win to Tootoo though.Not as easy as he thought.

Posted by Pro X on February 05, 2013 at 09:20 PM

Edge Tootoo. How do you figure Mickey is a homer? Your audio must not work.

Posted by TrueHockeyFan79 on February 05, 2013 at 10:57 PM

Tootoo struggled at the start but got going late on ending with the take down. Tootoo with the W.

Posted by Jordybats99 on March 09, 2016 at 01:30 PM

Good fight. Edge Tootoo.

Posted by Jamie Richards on February 06, 2013 at 07:32 AM

Body Slam!!

Posted by 22train on February 06, 2013 at 01:01 PM

Love to see two guys show each other respect after a good fight!

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on February 09, 2013 at 04:46 AM


Posted by jnk07899 on February 06, 2013 at 11:06 AM

This fight was awesome! I voted it a 9 (I may be a little jacked up) but still, Tootoo, who I admit I never could stand, is now one of my favorite fighters to watch. I gave it to Tootoo pretty easily.

Posted by b_eazzzy on February 10, 2013 at 06:02 PM

2 2 let's begin back on his feet.....only to finish stronger. W too too

Posted by Cooley945 on February 05, 2013 at 08:32 PM

Dispite the blood tootoo took control, stood begin back up when he went down and finished the fight with a nice slam. Edge tootoo

Posted by Kolbyz on February 06, 2013 at 05:48 PM

Wow that was a great fight. I'd say that was kinda close but tootoo would end up with the win as he drops begin to his knees. All in all was a great fight I'd give it a 9-10.

Posted by Killer93 on February 05, 2013 at 08:48 PM

Good fight-Begin stong at beginning-TooToo finished well. Not bad for two middleweights. Mickey Redmond is such a homer.

Posted by Oil Can Henry on February 05, 2013 at 10:16 PM

...decent, energetic scrap,....hard to pick a winner, so I won't,....

Posted by SouthPaw017 on February 07, 2013 at 08:14 AM

Love watching Rat-A-TooToo... But I was suprised with Begin's effort, too close to call...

Posted by chad420 on February 07, 2013 at 08:14 AM

Spirited back & forth draw....Begin literally fighting his way back in the league

Posted by Big_Fat_Dan on February 06, 2013 at 03:09 AM

Haymakers being thrown here, Tootoo seem to have the upper hand but Begin got the better shots in, it's a draw for me.

Posted by flamesgoon on February 06, 2013 at 05:38 PM

tootoo win begin try the mma take down

Posted by Ed Van Impe on February 06, 2013 at 04:15 PM

Dirtball Poo Poo is becoming quite the punching bag ...

Posted by SergeantSchultz on February 05, 2013 at 10:34 PM

Tootoo strong, short, compact, rapid punches. Another in the win column.

Posted by Radiotalker on February 07, 2013 at 11:46 PM

Hate to say it, because he's generally a coward, but win JT.

Posted by g3lstein on February 05, 2013 at 10:21 PM

Tootoo mixing it up, first body shots and now body slams. Decent scrap, love the smiles at the end.

Posted by Toughguy83 on February 05, 2013 at 09:14 PM

Attaboy 22

Posted by mullet33 on February 05, 2013 at 10:11 PM

Must be because Detroit hasn't had a fighter in a few years but this many votes for a Tootoo win???? A draw from an outsider looking in. I suppose he got all the blood on his nose as a result of the MMA take down...must have been a self inflicted wound. 2011-2012 stats show 5 out of 15 wins for Detroit. Hmmmmm - good try.

Posted by LouCat40 on February 05, 2013 at 10:27 PM

Tootoo took the win and a busted nose for his troubles. What a hell of a fight.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on February 07, 2013 at 11:56 PM

Draw. Both guys had some good moments.

Posted by wallysy1 on February 06, 2013 at 01:42 AM

weird fight score it draw... take down tootoo but bloody face tootoo. No clear winner.
