not alot of punches landed, but Eager cut Lucic under the left eye with a straight right. Eager fell off balance at the end after missing with a right. the Bergeron injury took alot of the fire out of this game, understandably so.

Posted by TheShaneTrain on October 29, 2007 at 03:51 PM

am i living in a land of retards? a*hole announcer: "and he drops him!" gotta be kidding me...i would have given it to lucic had eager not bloodied him, therefore: Draw

Posted by j0hnsond4 on October 28, 2007 at 11:34 PM

an ok fight both landed some...eager lost his balance in the end, Lucic did not throw him down DRAW

Posted by wallysy1 on October 30, 2007 at 12:46 AM

draw---the announcers in boston are always blind. but both guys landed --tempted to give it to eager since he cut lucic--but not sure that wasnt eagers helmut that flew off and cut him.

Posted by Lucicmaniac on September 23, 2008 at 02:51 AM

how is it so close? Lucic dominated this fight!!!

Posted by dragonlocks on December 21, 2007 at 09:40 AM

Everyone seems to like Ben Eager, but this kid destroyed him. You'll hear alot more about this kid over the next few years.

Posted by BruinsAandR on April 15, 2017 at 08:47 PM

Lucic with the good takedown

Posted by Bruins29 on October 29, 2007 at 11:26 AM

Good fight, very close. Both guys landed a few good shots, but Lucic scores the takedown with his man-child strength. Slight edge to Lucic.

Posted by cabsf15e on October 29, 2007 at 05:13 AM

Lucic wins this fight with two excellent rights that caught Eager square on the cake-hole. Eager got one good shot in, but Lucic controlled him and is obviously stronger than Eager. Difference between these two is huge because Lucic fights well and can actually skate, i.e., he has some game...Eager needs to go to Laura Stamm's power skating school!!

Posted by mokan33 on October 29, 2007 at 06:18 PM

Lucic can take a punch and still deal out the punishment. This kid is a great player and has the toughness to survive in this league. I have to give the edge to Lucic. Even though he was cut, he still kept at it.

Posted by devils14 on November 05, 2007 at 07:41 PM

very nice luc def. pulled it through he did a great job. advantage lucic

Posted by Wolf_eyes on October 30, 2007 at 03:12 AM

Close fight. Very close. Still, upon replay, I think eager was the winner- more punches thrown, more on offense, Lucic was doing his best to tie eager up and stay distant...

Posted by r0b07 on October 29, 2007 at 01:59 AM

Gotta love Lucic though. He's 19, 200+ pounds, has 20+ goal potential, and he'll drop the gloves with anyone. Too bad Eager got the better of him

Posted by bostonrs555 on October 29, 2007 at 10:59 PM

that eager is a little gamer, god love him! only one shot landed and lucic got cut, it's about damage folks! eager gets the nod

Posted by luckysod04 on October 29, 2007 at 03:41 AM

wow, eager almost nailed my domination vote, up until the end

Posted by 215bully on October 28, 2007 at 09:06 PM

lucic wasnt really trying to fight back, he was just trying to throw eager to the ground. eager split him open tho before he went to the ground.

Posted by bobnknoxville on October 29, 2007 at 04:41 PM

Eager gets it for the cut.other than that Eager didn't dominate the fight.I agree with you mckendo83 this isn't WWE.Winner isn't the guy that gets the pin.

Posted by jnacci on November 01, 2007 at 02:16 AM

Who lands on top, who gets the last shot in, who gets cut ... those are for drunk fans and silly play-by-play guys to get excited over . These are only minor factors into deciding who wins the fight. Both guys had good moments in this fight. This is clearly a draw, to me. Most hockey fights are.

Posted by mikebflorida on October 29, 2007 at 09:31 AM

Good scrap. From the looks of things, it looked like Eager was getting the best of it and Lucic had a good 2nd half of this fight to earn a hard fought draw. Remember, blood and cuts don't win a fight.

Posted by CaptZ on October 29, 2007 at 08:26 PM

Spirited bout, Lucic was the stronger of the two and got the take down. Eager was throwing some punches with bad intentions, Lucic was lucky that last one didn't land. Can't wait for the rematch. Good bout

Posted by Cendro on November 05, 2007 at 11:37 AM

Draw, but a fairly decent bout between these two. They each got a few decent licks in.

Posted by f1yer on November 05, 2007 at 12:59 AM

Close one. Lucic got in some shots, probably more than Eager did. But Eager's seemed to land more often, and he did cut him. If he had not slipped at the end and had to cover up I think it would have seemed more like a win for Eager. But it's hard to declare a win when you are down on the ice defenseless. So a draw.

Posted by slshbleed on October 29, 2007 at 06:02 PM

Too bad Eagers looses his balance. At least they were both willing to get in there and fight and not just lock each other out.

Posted by terrystanjohn on October 29, 2007 at 08:24 AM

Decent bout, this Lucic kid is going to be an entertaining player. Do I smell another Cam Neely on Causeway Street?

Posted by FaxCap on October 29, 2007 at 10:11 AM

Draw....I was tempted to go Lucic by a VERY slight margin.

Posted by SCOTTSO on October 31, 2007 at 09:03 PM


Posted by picsman04 on November 15, 2007 at 01:55 PM

Eager won, if anyone. Just b/c there is a takedown, doesn't mean he won. Eager threw himself off balance, Lucic got very lucky.

Posted by FlyersDosage on October 29, 2007 at 11:31 AM

Eager slipped to end...the only shot of effectiveness was Eager's shot to pop open a cut on his face.

Posted by hockey doc on October 29, 2007 at 01:17 PM

Eager won this fight hands down.

Posted by vrodack on October 30, 2007 at 03:09 AM

Good fight Eager cut Lucic under the left eye. I give him the win for that

Posted by jpd1321 on October 29, 2007 at 11:45 AM

Edge to Eager, Lucic will win that one in the future

Posted by nofx8881 on November 08, 2007 at 12:53 AM

They go toe to toe, both of them kind of flailing about and not connecting much. Eager opens up Lucic so he gets the win. Lucic held his own but the only reason it looks like Lucic won is because Eager lost his balance when he missed on the haymaker at the end. If that had landed, Milan would still be in the hospital. Not a very good fight, but as I said, the edge goes to Eager with credit to Lucic.

Posted by FyrFyter24 on September 01, 2015 at 08:25 PM

After reviewing this video several times, still looking for the "drops him" punch the very homer blinded, moronic Jack Edwards is referring to ...

Posted by chris_mcallister on October 29, 2007 at 01:18 PM

Win Eager. Lucic seemed to be the bigger man but ate most of the punches. It wasn't a terrible showing by any means, but he may have really landed only one punch and was then cut.

Posted by flyers0607 on October 29, 2007 at 04:52 PM

Win to Eager for cutting Lucic.

Posted by bney7 on October 28, 2007 at 06:26 PM

Two good fights in this game.

Posted by Flyers5532 on October 31, 2007 at 07:17 PM

Eager cut him win Eager

Posted by Brashearfan on October 29, 2007 at 07:32 AM

This is close, but it seems that Eager landed more. His fall at the end may have others thinking differently.

Posted by BStreetBullies on October 29, 2007 at 09:56 AM

Edge Eager for landing the best punch as he was being pinned up against the boards. Takedowns don't earn the W.

Posted by Rebel Banker on October 29, 2007 at 08:12 PM

WIN EAGER!! eager landed the only effective punches...lucic hit the shoulder pads a couple of times..lucic leaves leakin

Posted by blackhawks16 on May 25, 2010 at 07:07 AM

win eager

Posted by teslo on October 29, 2007 at 03:25 AM

Think, that Milan was better

Posted by aces50 on October 29, 2007 at 07:51 AM

Great fighter this Lucic kid. For the age he is good. Have to give this one.

Posted by Leafs2006 on November 04, 2007 at 11:45 AM

Eager is a tough kid....as well as Lucic, good scrap, Lucic by a hair...theyll be scrappin again im sure.

Posted by aerotunes on November 05, 2007 at 05:39 PM

Looks like Eager messed with the wrong guy... basically the Flyers suck.

Posted by steveh on December 14, 2007 at 11:39 AM

Win Lucic. Eager looked ok but was missing 90% of the shots and kind of turtles at the end.

Posted by Formerref on October 29, 2007 at 04:36 PM

Watched this one 3 times and everytime came up with the same result. Lucic won this one, even though he got cut he won.

Posted by nitch on October 29, 2007 at 02:11 PM

jpd1321, You my man are right on. In the future, Eager won't even think of fooling with Lucic. Pretty much a draw, with Lucic showing his strength and ragdolling Eager to the ice.

Posted by hal29 on January 07, 2010 at 12:41 AM

win lucic eager landed one and then it wa lucic from there

Posted by Bloodbank on October 30, 2007 at 06:40 AM

Another close one. The live version seemed to give an edge to Lucic. The replay shows Lucic wrestling an off balance Eager to the ice. I am going to have to give this to Lucic for drawing an experienced fighter and manhandling him.

Posted by gmathiak123 on October 30, 2007 at 10:04 AM

Lucic wooped him, no chance for Eager after he almost fell over right at the beginning. If you voted Eager, watch the fight again. Blood doesn't mean win, just means a weak face. Get a clue people.

Posted by Jellyczar on September 08, 2015 at 07:59 PM

Lucic wins...flyers lose

Posted by chl37 on October 29, 2007 at 08:14 AM

19 rookie beats eager.

Posted by Juha82 on October 30, 2007 at 10:01 AM

A good show by both player, but better by Lucic. A narrow win to Lucic as he landed more punches. In the end Eager missed badly of his own and Lucic gets on top og him.

Posted by mcgillion1981 on October 29, 2007 at 11:32 AM

Good tilt.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on February 08, 2013 at 06:23 PM

Spirited bout. Lucic landed more punches.

Posted by Jointman on October 29, 2007 at 04:26 AM

This Lucic kid is doing really good lately

Posted by Riomouse911 on October 31, 2007 at 11:38 PM

Again, good bout! Lucic is what, 19? He's got a future I believe..

Posted by jgray411 on October 31, 2007 at 10:29 PM

lucic i love you

Posted by thescotsman1 on November 04, 2007 at 12:27 PM

A cut is a cut...Eager WENT DOWN...he was ducking and covering when he hit the ice. he was done. Think about it. if you're fighting someone and they pull you off him before any more damage is done, though you got a little scratch on your cheek...who won? You have mental problems if you think this is a draw or even give Eager the win.

Posted by DuckHawk on October 28, 2007 at 10:09 PM

Draw, not to exciting in my opinion, but that happens.

Posted by penguinsfan123 on October 29, 2007 at 06:46 AM

eagar lost and another cheap shot by the flyers in this game this happens like once a week with this team

Posted by TheBull on October 29, 2007 at 07:18 AM

Ok a chinese proverb say stay quite and wait that the enemy body cross over the river..... And is just what I say later....lucic is nothing special....as many people would wants.....

Posted by cashman rules on October 29, 2007 at 05:17 PM

Eager thought he would tame the big rookie and he didn't.Way overated but i;ll give him vredit for opening up though for a change.Can;t wait till orr knocks his teeth out.Lucic takes this one for landing better.

Posted by BattleAxe13 on October 29, 2007 at 09:39 PM

Even though Lucic was cut I still give a very slight edge to him. Eager threw more punches but they went wild and most miss, Lucic landed more then through Eager down and Eager turtled, and I don't think I blame him, haha.

Posted by DetroitIan on October 30, 2007 at 05:18 PM

How could anyone say Lucic won this fight??? We must have some blind ass poeple watching this one. Lucic basically did nothing but hold on. And he didnt land one solid shot. Eager landed atleast one decent shot to Lucic's face. But since that was all Eager did, I call this one a CLEAR and OBVIOUS draw.

Posted by alxhj on October 29, 2007 at 10:49 PM

Plain and simple, Eager landed more shots and obviously a more damaging shot because he busted Lucic's eye. You don't get extra points for a takedown (which really wasn't a takedown because Eager fell missing a punch). Give up Bruins fans, Eager won!

Posted by bluezfan22 on October 29, 2007 at 06:41 PM

Nice Homer call by the announcer. The only thing Lucic "dropped" was some of his own blood. Lucic used his strength to keep it respectable, but he didn't really even get a punch in. By the time he was ready to unload Eager slipped. Too bad because that fight had potential up to that point. Gotta give the bout to Eager and it really wasn't that close.

Posted by mckendo83 on October 29, 2007 at 09:13 AM

Lucic didnt send eager down with a punch, eager slipped after throwing a punch and not to mention BLOODIED lucic... this seems like a case of "whoever lands on top wins" in the eyes of some idiots on here. These announcers "AND DROPS HIM" ridiculous.

Posted by brennank on October 29, 2007 at 01:43 PM

Eager Win! If it was not a FLYER and LUCIC was bleeding they would get the win! Plus Ben let him know that he won by pointing it out that he was bleeding!

Posted by Cid on October 29, 2007 at 03:43 AM

Lucic scored with the big right early and gets the takedown! Win - Lucic!!

Posted by paddyd on October 29, 2007 at 11:46 AM

Eager and Cote both like to stop punches with there face. a slight edge to lucic.
