wow,.. some true anger in a tilt... both guys were mugging each other pretty good before they dropped em', but nothin landed til they hit the deck... nice surface to air missiles by Boychuck during the pileup... #55 FTW
Abdelkader is a douche. Everything he did here sucks- kicking legs out, strike one. Cross check to face- strike two. Punching after falling to ground- strike three.
"Applicator" descends into Red Wing lore misguidedly channeling the spirits of Dennis Polonich and Bugsy Watson as opposed to the honorable choice of the Bruise Brothers... as he slew "footedly" cross checks and "classlessly" ground punches his way to a "karmically" comedic horizontal defeat As a life long Wings fan... clearly not our finest moment Lovin' the Swiney as usual
A short fight with some fast punches including Boychuk landing 3 good ones in a row while down. This fight proves that the winner isn't always the one who ends up on top...and to never give up or give in. This was the spark the Islanders needed after playing flat for 2 periods.
close for a Redwing fight. Got personal as the fight kept going once the refs stepped in. Draw.
2 guys pissed off, good fight.
Blatant slu foot of Rocket. A suspension for Abdelkader??
Wow. Two bitch moves by Abdelkader. Should have been an Islander 3rd man in to punish Abdelkader for the slewfoot. Still, glad to see Boychuck land what appeared to be the only meaningful shots of the tilt, on Abdelkader's face from down on the ice.
A quickie , but Justin played dirty , with a slew foot then a high cross check to the face ! .
Let's see if Abdelkader get's fined for the kick...either way, Boychuk lands a few on his feet and from his back for the win and a 4
Abdelkader with a cheap shot and Boychuk returns trhe favor with hits to the noggin....
look at Johnny Boychuk throwing punches on his back
you have to be a special kind of douchebag to get Boychuk riled up. it's too bad he's not better on his skates this would have been a mercy killing...
I hate Justine Adjudicator with a passion! Boychuk with the W even if the best punches were landed with him on his back.
If you're gonna slew foot somebody on the ice, you probably shouldn't slew foot a guy who is built like a house. Applegator gets the well deserved loss in this one. I guess he deserves all losses.
Abdelkader is a joke just like his team. How many goals do we need to spot you!
How much boy could a Boychuk chuck if a Boychuk could chuck boy? If the "boy" was Justin Abdelkader and he tried to beat on Boychuk laying on the ice, the "boy" would get chucked 3 times in the head.
Even if you take away the punches landed when both dudes are down, Boychuk wins for landing two punches and knocking off Abdelkader's helmet, and Abdelkader only getting one soft right in to start. Boychuk all the way.
Abdelkader is such a cheap shot artist, Boychuk by a landslide
Domination by boychuck all I have to say.
Boychuk earns a silver for diving, and then half of a fight breaks out :) Draw plus bonus points for actual emotion.
Two girls slapping each other.Ha!
Abby with the cheapshot as always. Refs were interfering when they hit the ice. Draw.
Good ol fashioned slew foot! Hey it leads to a fight so that's good thing. A few extra punches on the ground - Boychuk doing most of it off his back so quit complaining about Abdelkader.
Abdelkader sucks at fighting. He should hire a fighting coach.
angry fight :) draw in 5 "If u wana keep throwing um, I'll keep throwing um"
Watch the fight in slo mo replay. Those complaining about Abby throwing on the ice clearly missed Boychuk throwing one first while on his back. If you don't want shots thrown at you while on the ice, don't throw after you are down. And throwing bombs when your opponent's hands are held by the refs? That's just a gutter move right there.
I know it's a draw, but there are some people on here voting that just shouldn't be voting. Boychuk throws 2 punches before he is taken down, neither lands, then Abdelkader is swinging multiple times while on top of him, then the ref is holding his right arm, and Boychuk gets in a couple of punches. How anyone could call this a win for Boychuk, I will never understand. People commenting on here about Boychuk landing good ones while on his back, if the refs didn't grab Abdelkader's arm, Boychuk would have been demolished, just watch what he was doing before the refs grabbed his arm. Also, oychuk throwing him down in the corner, you clowns are ok with, but in front, watch again, Abdelkader dooesn't kick his feet out, it was clear embellishing, like some of the comments on here.
Man, Abdelkader is a punk. Slew foot followed by throwing punches while Boychuk is on his back. Glad to see that bite him in the ass. Boychuk with the win.
Boychuk chuckin' 'em from the bottom for the win.
Abdelkader is a true prick cheapshot artist. He kicks the feet out from under Boychuk, then continues to punch after the Linesmen have Boychuk tied up on the ice.
Boychuk is tough man. Abdelkader was lucky it didn't last long.
You ppl count the punches on the ground while abbys being held by the refs? Come on. Abby wins this one easy. Islanders should change colors to black and white stripes. Slew foot came after boychuk boarded abby. you ppl are biased lol.
BOYCHUK and few other ISLANDERS have been training with .CHRIS WEIDMAN. shows pounding up from up from your back. the by ABDELKADER seemed to really piss often BOYCHUK if not a slew .at best leg behind and pulled back
Abdelkader lands the only serious punches in the fight. The stuff that led up to it was fun to watch!
