Other Penalties: Dubois received a roughing; McAvoy an illegal check to head.
Brief but entertaining fight. bigmike53 is spot on-love it when non-fighters have a spirited, albeit it sloppy, scrap. McAvoy looked to get in one big right that gives him a slight edge.
Gordie Howe Hattie!
Messy fight, and McAvoy seems to have landed a hard lucky shot that stunned Dubois. Having Dubois off balance and not really wanting to have to keep fighting, Charlie goes for a takedown. Not pretty but win McAvoy.
It's always a good thing when guys like these produce an entertaining scrap. McAvoy with the narrow win.
2 skilled non-fighting youngsters got their 1st nhl fight.say whatever you want but i love this kind of "in the heat of the moment" fights.dubois didnt like mcavoy checking him with his shoulder and gloves went off good fight by both..solid draw and 5
Looked like a draw to me ...... check was borderline
Good hit. Draw 4. Gordie Howe for the kid!
draw all daylong , they each might have gotten one good one in! because a guy falls doesn't mean he loses.
Draw. Love the "Bawstan Homahs".
Pretty even bout. It was a decent effort by both rookies.
Ok...McAvoy won the bout but the Boston announcers suck so bad I gave the fight to Dubois.
Edwards still sucks man-c%ck. And Boston a-holes, your pathetic.
"Do Boys" got his bell rung... and Only connected with helmet shots Wake up Haters "Do Boys" Lost...
Good clean hit by McAvoy, but Dubois took it on the jaw and responded. Nice fight between two rookies.
looks like two fish out of water flopping around out of their element. These are NOT fighters but hats off, literally to Charlie for the Gordie Howe.
Can we have anyone fight Jack Edwards? You'd have thought Dubois was lying dead on the ice. Over and under? WTF?
I agree with Bigmike53 and Lucic17. Suprised me they settled it right then and there. A Gordie Howe hat trick nice!
For two rookies in their first NHL fights not bad
Dubois was busy early and may have done a bit of damage to the Bruin. But McAvoy comes on hard late and gets the win with the best punch.
God bless Charlie McAvoy. Charlie wins, .
Couple skilled pups throw down. Although like usual I disagree with Jack (if you're reading this unblock me on twitter) Charles won this tilt.
"that's a good check right there"
This sort of exchange is exactly why there should be fighting in hockey. McAvoy brings a shoulder up to Dubois' head, and Dubois answers with a punch, and they decide to settle it right there and then. Dubois at the start, McAvoy in the middle, both still going at the end. Gotta call it a draw.
McAvoy squeaks out a narrow win (wouldn't argue a draw either) in an energetic and entertaining "we-don't-fight-often" bout.
mac landed the best blow, in a close bout. (4)
Nice win,eh Charlie.
Pierre dominated the hits and only took one hit , a lucky shot .
nice fight good action both landed aa few but mcavoy had the better punches
Pretty decent go of it from both guys, edge McAvoy.
First fight for both guys love the fact that they went instead of just jawing and waiting for the refs, good tilt
Charlie Mac is the winner.
apparently they didn't teach Doo Bwaa how to fight in Frogland
McAvoy can do no wrong these days in Boston. He regularly green lights guys so I was wondering when this would happen. He surprised me and more than held his own here with the edge in this fight. Don't need him breaking his hand on a helmet tho...
McAvoy started into this one late and STILL thumped his ass!!! Great job on the Gordie Howe Hat Trick Charlie! 💪💪
McAvoy landed one punch which was the best one but Dubois landed about 3 or 4 lighter ones. I give it a 3 and a draw. NO WAY IN HELL that fight deserved a 5. Some of you need to lay off the drugs before voting!!!
Each guy landed two decent shots. 4 and a draw. Is anyone else going to vote that didn't grow up in Boston
The tv guy yell too much for McAvoy: more punch by Dubois, take down by MacAvoy
two obvious non-fighters, dubois with a sucker punch to initiate, but fails to finish. edge McAvoy
Pierre's early work wins the bout. The McAvoy punch to shield was good one but no damage
Why is everyone giving this to mcavoy? He landed one decent punch and then bear hugged him to the ice... Dubois landed lots of clean shots and did all the damage. That’s a win in my books
Once again Boston fans prove that anal sex can cause pregnancy.
