Why are Bruin fans talking about McQuaid? He wasn't in this fight or in this game for that matter. Are we going to talk about Thornton, Orr or Lucic next? Remember when Orr broke Lucic's nose? That was a thing of beauty. Anyway, the Leafs beat the Bruins 2 in a row and Martin won this fight. It was a good weekend for the Leafs, not so much for the declining Bruins. The McQuaid/Martin fight from last year was a good and close one, but Martin lost. As far as what would happen in a rematch no one really knows. It'll probably be close. A visor is an advantage. Anyone who disagrees is a complete idiot. When you wear a visor you are covering half your face. Imagine what a good fighter a player could be if he was wearing a full face shield. Martin and the other non wearing visor fighters should wear one when they are playing a team that has so called tough guys wearing one. That's the only way to make it fair. If they won't or can't take it off, put one on. Is Beleskey the new Bruin tough guy? Why did they let Lucic go again?
BTW fight fails to show 1st punch Martin Nails him right in the eye popping helmet..Bruins laying the body on the smallish Leafs, Martin lays a big open ice hit taking the Bruins helmet in the arm, causing obvious discomfort Chara asks Martin to go and sees he is hurt then skates away, Martin goes off leaving the bench also. Comes back takes another shift Laying the Body again, Belresky takes offence asks Martin to go, Martin looks around at the ref who calls nothing, then Martin drops Belresky with one punch square in the yap knocking his helmet off also as he goes down, Fight over win Martin. As for the McQuade comment, Look at the Tape Ref called the fight Martin looked at the ref relaxed and Mcquade threw the late shot....BTW we are talking about Bubble head McQuade who took 3-4 shots on the visor that fight(The Visor saved him)
Burlesky thinks he can take advantage of Martin who was involved in a nasty collision a few minutes prior. He can't - and will have to try to beat up a senior citizen on his way home. He won't. As a side note - since we're talking about players not involved in this fight - I can't decide whether Pizzaneck is a turnstile or a swordless bullfighter. Either way he is softer than a newborn's bottom.
Appreciate the backstory(s) ,from JoeDog and BruinsAllDaySon but based on the video evidence presented I gotta go draw
Beleskey goads Martin into dropping them, then probably wonders why he did it as he takes a hard shot to the noggin.
Bruins suck dick as usual. Pukeleskey coulda died tonight but the sniper from grassy knolled rafters took him down first. Char a at his fuckwad usual self goes over to pick a fight with Matty after dirty elbow by douchbag dickrok. Chara should just commit suicide this week and end it once and for all. He never fought anyone worthwhile his size cos he a pussy. A huge gaping pussy like jackoff Edwards. Laroque would have killed him several times over.
Bad cases of Bambi legs ends this quick. Draw.
Liked the way Belesky tried to Superman punch Martin but couldn’t get any elevation. They really shouldn’t waste our time, this is more of a “skirmish” without gloves, not much of a fight. BTW, whenever I hear Jack Edwards, I know not to believe anything I hear (except if he’s doing an NBCSN game, when he totally tones down his Bruins-rule-the-world crap, and is nowhere near as annoying).
This is a draw, the only reason I voted for Beleskey was to counter the ridiculous votes for Martin, for what, noogies? If anything, what took Martin so long to drop the gloves? Did he have to wait to make sure it wasn't Chara? Was he not seeing clearly? Great Murray, look at the voting, who is the homer fan base? You only said Martin to counteract a fan base, when yours was more pathetic, smh. Commenting on here, 1 says a solid shot by Martin, smh, and the other, just as ridiculous, is saying Beleskey tried to surprise Martin, wtf, he challenged him from in front of net, took til almost the blue line for Martin to accept. There are some blind homers here.
Martin, one punch
delay of game , waist of time , abuse of vital ice time etc........
It took meticulous iPhone zooming to make sure I “thumbsed up” @BehnWilson. Non starter and some commenters may need to check in with their emotions.
Not really a fight, so I give it a draw. Otherwise, Martin would beat him.
Beleskey saved himself a whole lot of hurt by pulling Martin down. As for stupdog and his brainless comment. The refs had nothing to do with Martins beating and being bloodied by Mcquiad. Yo stupdog you might actually want to get your facts correct before spouting off your undeniable ignorance of the facts.
this was suppose to even martins hit early I still havnt seen the big right hand draw
Fight? Hardly! So anyone voting anything other than a draw here is a complete Homer!
disappointing fight.actually they went down before the fight started...draw and 1
You guys know the backstory. Martin connects the only punch therefore giving him a default win. Beleskey is a laughing stock but, has been more physical this season to try and salvage any value as a hockey player. He's waiver material though at this point.
Obvious martin win, not much or a fight but got one really good shot in. Martin fell, no way beleskey did anything to make that happen. Rematch with mcquaid should happen , without a visor would be a way different outcome. Takes 4 shots to the visor and feels nothing.
Beleskey plays tough, quickly realizes he’s badly outmatched, and bails Martin with the laughable win
Not much to see here. Belesky tried to surprise Martin but not much fight because of it.
not worth the 42 seconds to view this.. move on.
Over too quick, did't see enough due to poor camera work, draw.
LOL, ah I see the Bruins haters all made it to the party. You call this a Martin win, just because he should have killed Beleskey, and didn't. Draw, and a 2.8.. And they're still losing sleep over last year's bloody FOTY! Hilarious! Talk about sour grapes!! Mwahahaha!
lol must be alot of bruin fans on here,,, The bruins are SWAFT, That was no fight. HOw did Beleskey expect to stand up and throw punches when he skates in there at 30 mph. Of course we all know the anwser another grab and fall down fight for Boston.. Thats not fighting, you have to throw and connect with a few punchs. Should have been delay of game penalty
Beleskey tried to get to Martin before he could get his gloves off.... didn't work. Martin landed the only punch and gets the win and a 2
This should have been 2 min for roughing,draw and nothing more but Martin did turn down Chara beforehand,don't blame him.
Ridiculous...stand up on your skates and throw punches. Martin because.....who knows...may be just to offset the moronic Boston homer voting.
Leafs fans stop with the visor theory. McQauid beat Martin like a rented mule. He’s lucky it didn’t end his career. Trust me, if it happens again, Martin will lose again.
Crap draw. @HOCKEYGOD Why all the hate Bro? Make Beliefs have been sucking DICK for YEARS!!!
Justin Bieber can't even beat Beleskey... Pitiful just Pitiful... draw on an Unfight.
Belesky was the aggressor and threw Martin down like a rag-doll
Martin went for an open ice hit on Bjrok a few minutes earlier who tried to duck the hit and ended up taking Martin's elbow to the helmet. Bjork gets up fine and Martin actually got the worst of it and headed down the tunnel. When Martin gets back on the ice, Beleskey desperately tries to justify his $4M cap hit and 0 points by taking on a much bigger Martin and takes a solid shot to the left temple/eye area before taking Martin to the ice. W Martin and 3. He did what he had to do - he was probably glad to see Beleskey w/McQuaid out on IR who TKO'd him in last year's FOTY. @joedog no. Refs don't "call fights" from afar as 2 guys are still throwing. You need to watch the video again. Martin threw a punch at the same time McQuaid did - Martin was TKO'd fair and square. So no. He wasn't 'relaxed' as you say. McQuaid is one of the toughest in the league just get over it.
