Two in a row for Rechlicz!!! As soon as the gloves hit the ice, Edwards should have duct tape put over his mouth.

Posted by GreatMurray on September 24, 2013 at 08:36 PM

What a load of BS. Anyone lays a Boston player with a clean hit is going to have to fight someone...and that's OK with the Boston talking heads. But when their guy gets his ass kicked (and he did) for doing the same is "OH ALAS AND ALACK WHAT AN EVIL PLAYER"!

Posted by boldbilly on September 23, 2013 at 11:12 PM

Johnny bum wad takes one for the referees jumped in to save his sorry ass........just listen to those two announcers.....jack and his ass brick....they sound like the two muppets up in the opera gallery.........pathetic

Posted by SFVflyers88 on September 23, 2013 at 10:38 PM

Wow! When homer #1 isnt screwing up announcing, homer #2 picks up the slack. By far the worst announcing team in all of sports. Id rather have Galv√£o Buen yell Gooooooooooooooooooool every time then listen to a Boston game. Heck Id rater mute the game and listen to ABBA.

Posted by DanielleinDC on September 23, 2013 at 10:44 PM

I like that Recker sticks up for his teammates, but he's a little too eager to fight. If it's a clean hit, calm your butt down, Recker, and do an even harder clean hit on the guy.

Posted by brianamoro on September 23, 2013 at 10:26 PM

Not much of a fight, plus stupid on reckless, it was good clean hit from boychuk

Posted by relkin on September 24, 2013 at 09:26 PM

Johnny wins the fight until the refs jumps in and you guys give Joel the win for punching a helmet after the refs stopped the fight? They really should give people an iq test before they let them vote on this site.

Posted by Jellyczar on September 26, 2013 at 07:54 AM

Draw..... Then I read the Caps fans comments and now I know why Washington is a mess.... the city and the team

Posted by jlmcgui on September 24, 2013 at 08:24 PM

That wasn't even one of Boychulk's better open ice hits ... and Rechlicz was offended ... go back to the minors son!

Posted by shawnrocks on September 24, 2013 at 11:25 AM

boychuk 1 punch ref grabs his arm wrecker 1 punch. no fight draw

Posted by Orr Fourever on September 24, 2013 at 09:50 PM

Win for Johnny B. Just cause he's a Bruin.!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by dapwas20 on September 23, 2013 at 10:37 PM

the ref's saved stripes are too quick to save the guilty from their due beatings, if they would let the enforcers finish the job maybe there would not be so many "heroes" taking the cheap shots... How about the guy taking the cheap shot getting the instigator instead cause that is the real person who caused the fight to happen in the first place? That would reduce the dirty play real fast.

Posted by Panchosraider on September 24, 2013 at 12:17 AM

Meh I gave it to Rechlicz not much here though!

Posted by Custombreaks on September 23, 2013 at 11:33 PM

Linesmen jump in to save another big chicken Bruin. What else is new? Gregorys Daddy has got the NHLOA by the short and curlies. Boychuk should stick to breaking spines.

Posted by bruinsfan1992 on September 24, 2013 at 01:07 AM

I dont know why Rechlicz went after Boychuk after that hit all he did was stand the guy up either way Rechlicz accomplished what he wanted i guess?

Posted by drop_the_gloves on September 28, 2013 at 10:17 AM

Mr. announcer, don't have an issue with Rechlicz, have an issue with Bettman's "new" NHL

Posted by GoBlackNGold90 on September 26, 2013 at 09:02 AM

Hardly a fight to much ref interference

Posted by legion31 on September 24, 2013 at 03:22 AM

Rechliz is the man , easy win !

Posted by gonzo44 on September 24, 2013 at 07:25 AM

And once again Boychuk shows he can't handle anybody over 6', maybe he can try catching Kessel the Slasher?

Posted by srehm1 on September 23, 2013 at 11:03 PM

Rechlicz scores with some lefts for a quick win.

Posted by rocky 1 on October 02, 2013 at 01:22 AM

How could anyone vote for Boychuk..He got the snitzel beat out of him and was only saved by the linesman.Not that Boychuk was given a choice to fight .

Posted by Happy2 on September 24, 2013 at 12:37 PM

The visor did not help...

Posted by MACMAN214 on February 15, 2014 at 07:16 PM

Johnny Girlchuk holding on for dear life

Posted by DARCY T on September 25, 2013 at 05:36 AM

i agree with announcer.there was no need for fight after that hit...boychuk started well and landed 2 or 3 but then got rechlicz going and forced boychuk rechlicz

Posted by 5minmajor22 on September 22, 2015 at 08:24 PM

did Jerk Edwards call the Caps an Original Six team??? that guy is awful! 2nd good bout by Reckless

Posted by ETR on September 24, 2013 at 08:49 AM

No wonder the fans in Boston are Massholes, they get brainwashed by these two assclowns....

Posted by billy jack on September 24, 2013 at 01:51 AM

joel pounded him down down for the looch fight i watched it in slo mo on the big screen and looch was landing clean and hard,joel had more punches but not the location and force of looches.

Posted by EdNo on September 24, 2013 at 05:22 PM

Oh Well, Wrecker bit off a little more than he could chew the first fight, so he selects a non-fighter to pad his winning percentage... Clear win for Rechlicz, for a (fight) winning percentage of .500 for the night

Posted by hal29 on September 23, 2013 at 09:48 PM

Rechlitz 1-1 tonight. Not a bad tilt with pooch but he did lose that one but won easily against boychuck

Posted by Makh2o on September 26, 2013 at 09:15 AM

Gotta love the idiot boston announcers questioning his response to a clean hit... it's like they don't even watch their own team play.

Posted by devsfan87 on September 24, 2013 at 12:36 AM

Now after seeing Rechlicz throw bombs in an even up fight with perhaps the strongest and best fighter in the league( Lucic) why on earth would a paperweight like Boychuk even bother? Stoopid basted..

Posted by kinga101 on September 23, 2013 at 10:31 PM

Rechlicz not showing any worse for wear handled Boychuk easily here.

Posted by honest truth on September 24, 2013 at 09:40 AM

Rechlicz wants to get paid this year.Easy win.

Posted by classic4 on September 24, 2013 at 08:14 AM

"Rechlicz hasn't had enough". They don't pay these idiots to announce the games, I hope? They should replace them with the announcers from "Slap Shot".

Posted by cible on September 24, 2013 at 12:42 AM

Boychuk wanted no part of Rechlicz! He was holding on for their life! Easy win Rechlicz.

Posted by Madhouse27 on September 23, 2013 at 10:46 PM

Rechlicz, what's up jumping guys for a mild hockey hit. You've fought a who's who of tough guys...a truly impressive card for a part time NHLer. Stuff like this just takes away from what you've been all about. Enjoy your win and a 2.

Posted by [email protected] on September 25, 2013 at 10:59 PM

Rechlicz can fight, but chasing down Boychuk looked bush league. Send him back to Moose Jaw, or where ever he came from

Posted by DotRats on September 24, 2013 at 08:46 AM

typical goon play...great check, idiot jumps a non-fighter

Posted by Bruins170 on September 23, 2013 at 10:26 PM

Never got going. Draw

Posted by Dukeman25 on September 24, 2013 at 01:03 AM

Boychuck played solid D with a nice open ice check and goon-man Rechlicz started in with him after licking his wounds from the beating that Lucic put on him

Posted by jactile on September 23, 2013 at 09:33 PM

Reffs got in the way of this fight

Posted by travist on September 24, 2013 at 05:28 PM

good clean hit brings out the goon rechlicz...have fun in the minors.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on October 02, 2013 at 11:57 PM

Rechlicz hammered Boychuk.

Posted by IhateJackAssEdw on September 25, 2013 at 09:56 PM

Rechlicz with the win 1-0-1 on the night and a tough SOB Jackass Edwards makes me yearn for Dale Arnold which I thought was impossible ...poor Fred and John must be turning over in their graves

Posted by CrackMan on September 24, 2013 at 10:54 AM

Clean hit by Boychuk, Rechlicz trying to show Caps' brass what he'll do for teammates. Not much landed but Rechlicz controlled it before linesmen jumped in.

Posted by LaniPani on September 24, 2013 at 12:27 AM

Boychuk ate knuckles then turtles.....yeech!!!!

Posted by BigBird on September 26, 2013 at 01:03 AM

Give points to the linesmen for saving Boychuk's life.

Posted by J3fff on September 24, 2013 at 12:52 PM

This is a non-fight.. and too eager of a fighter in Rechlicz.

Posted by Boston Garden on September 23, 2013 at 10:37 PM

Horrendous work from the linesmen again. If there was a Canuck or Hab in that fight they'd be hiding behind them yapping with a visor on.

Posted by fight-fan on September 24, 2013 at 11:53 AM

Too al the tools saying the refs saved JB. Yeah they really saved him, 1 was pulling on his back while the other was shielding JR's face from Boychuck's left while Rech was freely throwing lefts. Kind of hard to fight like that. Have to call it a draw due to this kind of 1 sided interference.

Posted by ironbar44 on September 23, 2013 at 09:06 PM

RECHLICZ having a good night

Posted by bcfdstifler on September 23, 2013 at 10:24 PM

Joel won this easily. Should've let it keep going.

Posted by kkdowning on September 24, 2013 at 09:26 AM

Rechlicz wins both fights tonight -- Boychuk is is fairly tough, but was saved by the linesman. What would Bric and Jack say if the tables were turned and Shawn Thornton stood up for a rookie?

Posted by Primus DCE on September 23, 2013 at 11:05 PM

First off, this was a great fight, we might have seen the best of this season before it officially begins. I felt Rechlicz landed the hardest and most quality shots. Also Lucic looked so gassed towards the end, I felt Rechlicz could of kept going. Edwards is one of the worst commentators in the league and it a complete homer. It is a disgrace having him in the wide broadcasts with NBC.
