Right off of the faceoff they drop the gloves and square off near the side boards. Beauchemin fakes Boynton out by skating towards him really fast only to turn back the other way. Beauchemin then grabs ahold of Boynton's jersey and starts to lead with the left hand, throwing a couple while Boynton answers with a few rights of his own. Beauchemin starts to lose his balance and falls to his knees while Boynton continues to throw rights. Beauchemin scrambles to his feet and Boynton goes ahead and throws two uppercuts. Beauchemin spins them to the ice and they quickly get back to their feet only to separate and square off once again. However the linesmen decide that they want to end the fight early and intervene.
beauchemin has shown that he can really throw'em but seemed to have trouble keeping his feet under him - I guess I really remember what he did to Iginla in the playoffs last year and that kind of stands out - I'm sure next time these two meet, the outcome will be more entertaining.
In Response to HockeyMexican Not to disrespect Boogard but tits unlikely that he'd stand a chance against Pronger. That's not to say that Derek hasn't made a name for himself this year and I am impressed. But there is a reason that people don't want to fight Pronger and its not because of his size. Pronger is a veteran. He's played and fought against people a lot tougher than Derek Boogard. It takes a lot to get Pronger mad but once He gets mad, bad things happen. I haven't seen him lose a fight yet and he has gone against some old school badasses back in the day. I have seen hundred Enforcers who look just like Derek Boogard. Boogard has comparable size to Pronger but I wouldn't give Boogard a sure victory. Its good to be excited about a player. I like both Pronger and Boogard. But its an even weightclass matchup. And Pronger has quite a few more KO's. But Boogard is a new talent and a badass. Its 3-0 in the series maybe we'll get to see Booger vs. Pronger tonight.
Refs jumped in to quick. Boynton looked like he didn't want anymore of Beauch.
Frankie is not usually a fighter and it took him a couple of minutes to get going, but he handled himself well. He started to lose his footing after a few even-trades, but then came on and had the clear advantage just as the candy-stripers stepped in. Boynton held his own and there was no clear winner, but you could see the fires flare up in Frankie at the end. I'm no fan of the striped fifth line, anyway - - here's another reason why. The timing kind of went with all the lousy original goal calls that the third-rate video couldn't pick out. D-Dad
how do u get to watch the videos?
linesmen step in to early no ones hurt let the guys go
They have a discussion on the faceoff, once the puck drops, they drop the gloves and square off. Beauchemin starts by grabbing a hold of Boynton's jersey and throws a few, Boynton responds by throwing some aswell. Beauchemin loses his balance and falls to his knees all while Boynton continues to throw rights at the off balance Beauchemin. He gets back up and Boynton feeds him two uppercuts. They both start to spin and each lose their grip. They square off again but the linesmen come in and break it up.
How come they can skate well enough to play in the NHL, but they fall down in a fight? Old time guys didn't fall down in fights like they do now.
Beauchemin should be glad the zebras got in there ... Boynton would have rocked him.
Boynton's tough....wish he did a little more of that when he played for the Bruins.
I like when guys drop their helmets, close fight but again to much ice covered, if they had of planted their feet it would have been a better tilt
Win Nick Boyton.
WHY?!!! why do linesmen continue to feel the need to jump in pre maturely? pisses me off.
Glad to see Beauchamin get it going this year as he had impressed me last season. An excellent "middleweight" matchup. Boynton had the edge in controlling the action and for punches thrown. Too bad the refs decided to step in as the fight was developing and mutually agreed on. Good to see the mutual respect shown by doffing the helmets. Love to see these guys settle it (esp. since i thought Beauchamin could be a real comer in the middle class off of his showing last year.).
You can tell he went for that one-punch left haymaker knockdown, ala his bout with iginla. Little perturbed it was broken up like that, Beauchy doesn't drop 'em often and it's always a treat to tell people that someone named Francois was throwing knucklebombs. Oh well.
Pesky linesman, always ruining our fun. I saw no need to break that one up. Both combatants still had some gas in their tanks.
Boynton was better here, being active of the two but he missed mostly, not much landed by him. SLIGHT EDGE Boynton.
Oh my word! What a shame, circle the date of the next game, hopefully we'll see a finish. Boynton is classy for letting Beauch up, former 67's! Class all the way, they were taught by Kilrea!
Beauchemin was trying to wrestle him, lmao.
wish this one would have kept going looks like it had potential since neither was was trying to do the lock out dance. Boynton gets the edge in a teaser!!
i wish boogard would fight pronger one day, boogard would destroy chris pronger just like he did to the other half of the ducks team
