For those curious, the extra commentators were Corby Davidson and Mike Rhyner. They host afternoon drive (3-7pm) on 1310 The Ticket in Dallas, the station that broadcasts the Stars. The station won the Marconi Award for "Best Sports Station" in the nation, so they were having many of the Ticket hosts on the broadcast tonight, in addition to Ralph and Razor on the call.

Dubcook is correct. We are very lucky here in Dallas to have the ticket guys. Even if you hate Dallas teams, these guys are always a riot. They do "DALLAS COWBOYS THEATER" every season which is this for a whole cowboy game and its hilarious. They also do a fight night which gets listeners to sign up and box while they do commentary.

I watched this a few times, the commentators were as entertaining as the fight.

Winner: The Commentators KD win

Posted by ironbar44 on October 25, 2013 at 01:20 PM

great tilt. BREEN at the end

Posted by SouthPaw017 on October 25, 2013 at 01:04 AM

Wow, one of the better ones thus far by two of the younger players in the league..... Too much MacDermid for the most part, with a nice shot from Breen at the end, don't consider it a knockdown though. And although I do love my Jack "Daniels" Edwards in Boston, these two commentators were f*n classic... One of the best calls I've heard, with some of the best one liners.... That pushed me to an (8) for the bout! Now that I think of it, there should be a rating for the call of the commentators.... Hear that hockeyfights.com????? Special thanks to Dubcook for the info on the guest commentators, too bad this isn't their regular gig!

Best play by play ever as those guys sounded like they were... A) drunk B) smoking a bong while watching the game on a couch C) or just all mic'd up when the acid kicked in Either way the fight was almost as good as the commentary as MacDermid (looking like Paul MacDermid in Hartford green) showed no fear in earning a close energetic entertaining draw against an equally gutsy Breen

Posted by boldbilly on October 26, 2013 at 09:25 AM

Wow these guys were incredibly entertaining.....funny comments not knowing a lot about hockey but making the commentary the entertainment.The people of Dallas are lucky....... The people of Boston are lucky also......they have an equally entertaining duo who also Know nothing about hockey ..........The Edwards and Brickley show....the difference you ask..........While the Dallas duo take the tongue in cheek approach and realize they are doing it solely for the entertainment value........The Boston duo are no less entertaining except they are dead serious in their over the top biased diatribe . The other difference is the fans and people of Dallas know this is done in jest.........where sadly while the rest of the hockey world laughs at the Boston duos antics.......the Bruins fans think these guys are knowledgable and wait for. It...........L.O.L..........neutral and responsible........L.O.L.........OH YEAH THE FIGHT.....the real winner......these announcers.......called it a draw in a very spirited close fight

Posted by Cid on October 25, 2013 at 10:31 AM

HILARIOUS! Loved it. Great fight too! Mac lands more but Breen with the knockdown punch. Will give it a draw.

Posted by kryon24 on October 25, 2013 at 07:53 PM

I have to call draw on this one as Mac was controlling until brylcreem landed the knock down shot to the cranium. They lost Gadzic on waivers? To whom? Please say it was to my punch less euro wuss wings! Sorry I forgot they are waiting for another swede to become available.

Posted by nait on October 26, 2013 at 06:09 PM

you would think these guys never saw a fight

Posted by oj finnegan on October 25, 2013 at 08:51 AM

great tilt macdermid early breen came back a little late not sure the punch knocked lane down or he slipped.

Posted by jloeb on October 24, 2013 at 11:22 PM

These guest announcers made it hard to concentrate on the fight.

Posted by Pug Face on October 25, 2013 at 12:11 PM

Good tilt. Edge Lane. Great commentary. All around great entertainment.

Posted by inhoc1146 on October 25, 2013 at 04:41 PM

Good fight. Favorite quote from the announcers "Is that red hair?"

you gotta love these announcers

Posted by GreatMurray on October 26, 2013 at 04:26 PM

Great fight! Great Announcers! Edwards! Pay attention you idiot. Give MacDermid the win but Breen made it much closer with a good pop at the end!

Posted by sndaysnipr on October 25, 2013 at 09:30 AM

Mac lands some thumps on Breens head. Win Mac

Posted by cible on October 25, 2013 at 12:19 AM

Great tilt, the fight was going all Macdermid way until Breen connected at the end. Macdermid damage throughout the fight gets him the nod in this one. Props for Breen for holding on and letting the storm pass to connect at the end. Good to see Macdermid in the lineup after losing Gazdic on waivers!

Posted by shawnrocks on October 25, 2013 at 07:38 PM

bruins shoulda kept macdermid

Posted by mygameworn on October 25, 2013 at 12:20 AM

guest commentator #1 I wonder what started this? guest commentator #2 hockey. That was the best part of the fight. Advantage MacDermid.

Posted by grocerystick on October 25, 2013 at 12:20 AM

Great to see Breen playing in the show and like what MacDermid brings to the ice. Nice scrap boys...

Posted by TheRightHook on October 25, 2013 at 10:02 PM

I thought Breen would have won but MacDermid is a pretty tough customer. Good fight overall slight edge to MacDermid.

Posted by DARCY T on October 25, 2013 at 02:11 AM

macdermid probably landed more but its tough to say from that angle and it looks like hulk in flames jersey landed solid right at the end as macdermid was falling down...draw

Posted by mrunohoo on October 25, 2013 at 03:54 PM

Lane McWho? and Christopher What?

Posted by sixclocks on October 25, 2013 at 07:55 AM

I think the announcers got erections

Posted by francoisleroux on October 25, 2013 at 01:23 PM

great fight! although I had to mute it about 20 seconds in. Top 10 fights of the year nominee? Hate to say it, but the banjo-pickin' football guys ruined it for me. I give it a 7, but maybe an 8 on the Calgary feed.

Posted by bruins34 on October 25, 2013 at 07:56 AM

Nice tilt. I called it a draw. Mac had the better of things, but the visor rule probably saved him some blood at the end. Breen hung in and just about stole it at the end. I wish we still had Mac, especially when you look at what Jagr actually did in the playoffs. Thornton's still game but a bit old for that line of work. Love the fight call. Dallas fans are lucky

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on October 25, 2013 at 08:21 AM

FOTY so far thanks to the best commentary ever and it was a spirited little bout as well. Although Breen threw some nice bombs at the end I have to give the slight edge to MacDermid for controlling 90% of the fight.

Posted by Ed Van Impe on October 26, 2013 at 07:11 AM

There are going to be a lot of broken hands this year ...

Posted by claire alexande on October 29, 2013 at 05:31 PM

Giving it to Breen for the bomb at the end, although draw would not be an outrageous verdict.

Posted by bfox9 on October 27, 2013 at 12:30 AM

MacDermid is still useless, Breen loses his helmet and still protects himself and lands a straight one to the chin to send MacDermid down.... Can't not give a guy a win for that.

Posted by geta02it on October 25, 2013 at 02:35 PM

"I wonder what started this..hockey", Line of the year!!!!

Posted by sedinfan on October 25, 2013 at 01:20 AM

Great fight. Mcdermid landed the most, but Breen landed a huge one at the end. so we are going with a draw in a good bout.

Posted by Meatpuppet42 on November 03, 2013 at 06:05 AM

Hate when they start with visors but breen with a tap at the end shows some class with fighters.

Posted by heavyhitter101 on October 26, 2013 at 10:01 PM

Very good tilt here from these two guys.. I think if breen would have thrown more earlier on in the fight, he would be the victor here, but macdermid was active throughout. From my opinion though, this is a draw but if I had to pick a winner, I would say Breen for ending on a better note. Great fight though guys

Posted by nuckles88 on October 25, 2013 at 11:54 PM

What fight are some of you people watching? Not a fan of either team but that was an obvious win for Breen. He even drops him at the end! If u don't consider almost knocking a guy out cold as winning a fight then you must be a judge in the UFC haha Big win in a very entertaining fight for Breen

Posted by srehm1 on October 24, 2013 at 11:26 PM

Damn good fight. MacDermid had the better of the early going and then Breen came on late. It looked like he scored a KD at the end of the fight.

Posted by travist on October 25, 2013 at 05:13 PM

good back and forth battle.

Posted by Humper on October 25, 2013 at 10:21 AM

Good fight, even better commentary. Hate calling draws, but in this case I can't ID a loser, so even it is.

Posted by Big_Fat_Dan on October 28, 2013 at 08:25 AM

Cracking bout!

Posted by fight-fan on October 25, 2013 at 01:51 PM

Mac gets the nod in a very close bout despite the TKO. Lol, the announcers sound like a couple of giddy little schoolgirls.

Posted by chad420 on October 28, 2013 at 12:43 PM

win Mac-Daddy... he was a good Bruin

Posted by kkdowning on October 26, 2013 at 03:19 PM

That was enjoyable

Posted by 5minmajor420 on October 25, 2013 at 05:42 PM

All you hating on the extra commentators are just humorless...sure they knew obviously almost nothing about hockey, hence them not being REGULAR commentators. But good god, that line "Does that guy have red hair?!? No wonder he got smacked" was frickin HILARIOUS...I haven't laughed harder while watching a fight in a looonnng time. Screw all you who say they suck...it was like watching a WWE match with those guys, I say they should be guest commentators on more of these...better than some of the homers, I'm looking at you Pittsburgh and Buffalo.

Posted by kaywonathon on October 30, 2013 at 02:41 AM

These commentators don't know dick about shit when it comes to hockey.I thought the one choadbag was gonna squeal his little coin purse loose when the fight started.Please do the world a favor and go back to the morning traffic report.

Posted by Diablo69 on October 28, 2013 at 06:19 PM

Wow... just couldn't listen to it a second time as the sh.itty announcers were... worst then that Edwards moron in Boston... WTF... and they get paid for that... REALLY... A draw since I couldn't concentrate on the fight...

Posted by fernben8 on October 25, 2013 at 08:03 AM

I had MacDermid slightly ahead till Breen earned the Draw with the last right. Judging from their knowledge base, those announcers should rather be commentating on figure skating ... really.

Posted by trailmix on October 25, 2013 at 09:22 AM

MacDermid was doing pretty well until Breen dropped him with a solid right. Win Breen. Funny how the homer replay doesn't show their guy getting blasted at the end.

Posted by rocky 1 on October 25, 2013 at 12:43 AM

Draw as Breen decks McDermid at the end!Now for the announcers I hear that Crack Cocaine is plentiful in the Dallas area.Just ask J>R>
