Other Penalties: Boll received a roughing.
Give credit to Boll for hanging in there, but Barch controlled the fight from beginning to end.
Ring around the rosie....jersey jab, jersey jab Crap fight
Have to call it a draw because Barch punched Boll a couple times while Crumbeen had Boll tied-up. Garbage fight between two garbage teams from garbage hockey cities.
not as good as the rating on this one. I would have given it to Barch if 3 guys didnt hop on top of Boll from the get go. Then Barch gets his best shots in right after the other 2 guys let go. Next I want to see a fair fight from the start.
This was a very entertaining fight I thought. Props to Boll for just getting up and continuing this fight and making it what it is today. Boll also landed some big punches. This is a DRAW for me. I just can't bring myself to give Boll a loss after the effort he gave. @Glennzky - LOL. Seriously, they were jocking those jersey jabs a lil TOO hard. Then they miss/ignore a bomb that Boll landed at the :50 second mark. You Friggin' Knuckleheads!
For everyone getting down on Boll, he is coming off a broken hand in the off season, he will be back with a healed hand this year!!!
Barch certainly controlled that fight. All jersey jabs and missed haymakers until the end when Barch landed a few solid blows.
OK fight, Barch with the majority of the major punches, doesnt look like Boll's hand is quite at 100% as he didnt look willing to throw to many heavy punches. Im a Boll fan but the win goes to Barch
Fair fight. Give edge to Barch for being more active. ...still wish that one of them would try to switch up hands and connect some real punches, but I guess today's scrappers are too afraid to take one. ...btw, Barch's looks remind me of Ryan Vandenbussche; but thats as far it goes. Vandenbussche would kill Barch any day.
Very boring fight. Some people actually said it was the best fight they've seen in a while...LOL! Weird. Win goes to Krys Barch.
Why was this allowed to go on for so long???
This is the Cam Janssen effect on hockey fighting--stand away holding onto the guy's jersey, try to sneak in some left jabs, and then throw right hand bombs that usually miss or hit the guy's helmet. They ought to add two minutes each for delay of game. Ho-hum--c'mon, stand toe to toe and let 'em go!
Barch early and late Boll didnt want to fight.
Boll looked tired so Ill give it to Barch
barch had him at the start and finish. good thing they had the intermission to rest up too
Not so special fight here, long but mostly dull. Barch was enough sharp to getting NARRow win.
boll is only capable of pummelling people like ryan hollweg and stortini, he does hang in there and is very game though.
It started with domination, later it evened up. Props to Boll for coming back
very good scap gotta love barch with rabbit punches at the beginning and ended with the shot to the temple also gotta love the commentary they think there boxing commentators its great
Could Reaugh sound like a bigger retard by saying "sneaky lefts" constantly?! Doesn't he know that the word "jab" already applies? Glad I don't have to listen to his stupid comments too often.
Boll needs to stop this toe for toe fighting style and go back to the hard nosed BA he used to be...
Barch wins with the stinky left.
Who are these fuking retarded announcers? Best fight since lockout? Hardly. This was mostly Jersey jabs and shots to the shoulder... A decent tilt, back and forth until that late right from Barch giving him the edge. Barch was more active, but I don't give much weight to those "sneaky lefts with the grab hand", What a joke. Go back to baseball commentary. ya dipschitt.
Good start, good finish. I went for a popcorn in the middle.
I give it to Barch for being the aggressor, but wow quite the long tilt. I half expected see ring girls come out after they split up.
Lots of goodies in this one. First, Barch throws some of the best jersey jabs I've seen. 2nd, the refs just let them go throwing haymakers for 2 1/2 minutes. 3rd, Barch eventually wears out Boll and lands some clean ones. Win to Barch. 4th, and best of all, the arena starts playing the fight training music we all remember when playing Mike Tyson's Punchout on our NES systems. Sounded like this version was played on an electric violin
Barch was the aggressor, Boll was stunned too many times
Was definitely a good fight. Barch had some nice shots. I don't know how anyone would call it a crap draw. But in my humble opinion, still nowhere in the league of the Tucker/Ruutu fight last year when it comes to great fights of recent memory.
Barch wins in a decent fight where both showed great willingness and persaverance.
Boll got some jersy jabs, but did no damage.looked like everything big he tried to throw missed. winner.. barch. good job to both guys for hanging in there for so long..
Barch with the edge as he outlasts Boll.
Great Fight. Props to Boll for hanging in there but Barch showed some serious fighter savvy throughout, and won decisively.
A couple really nice shots landed by Barch. That first left really caught him, along with the push to the ice, Boll was never really able to recover. That last bomb was because Boll wanted that fight ended 2 mins prior.
A sandwich fight with Barch winning the start and end and Boll taking the mid rounds. I think Barch staggered him with the last 2 big rights. Why does Boll wait so long to start throwing the offense. Nice use of the tie up left by Barch. Barch clearly wins this one.
Marathon bout here, surprised the linesman let them go that long.
Hats off to both players.
A fun, long bout between two seasoned heavyweights. Each was throwing haymakers that weren't landing until the last round when Barch, with more stamina, landed two of them rocking Boll!
These two look like they're in midseason form, but I'll give this one to Barch.
great fight. i was in sect 101 right behind the fight. the opposite angle from the video posted. what you cant see is Boll tapping the linesman's arm to end the fight. i think the last two from Barch took it out of him
What a great way to start the 2009 fight season. Now the Stars just need to figure out a way to get a win.
boll is tough, but he kept forgetting to punch!
Good bout this is one I would have enjoyed in person Barch handled him though but it was a dandy
helluva fight. both landed some nice punches. barch landed more though.
Gotta give it to Barch. Good showing by Boll, though. Marathon fight.
great fight by barch. those sneaky lefts r killers
Barch had total control of fight, no question
Best fight I've seen Barch in. Solid fight all around.
wow..long and great fight
very good fight and very close....edge to Barch.....saw a little too much of Peters fighting style from Boll.
What a marathon! Barch with the edge for landing more especially early with the the shirt grab jabs...kudos to both guys though and to linesmen for letting it go that long. jellyczar, good call on the peters comparison, I was thinking the same thing watching the fight.....
Boll started to come on midway through. But Barch dominated him in the beginning and end of the fight. Gotta give it to Barch. No doubt about it.
Barch all the way. Great fight, Boll got guts good effort
Marathon! Barch controlls this one, and shows that those jersey jabs, while not the most exciting method to watch, can work if properly executed.
this fight lasted pretty long but it goes to barch for the sneaky lefts
Way to hang in for Boll. Long, decent fight.
this was definetly fight of the night! if bolls hand was healthy this could have been that much more entertaining! barch with some huge rabbit punches and a couple of bombs to end it off!
Barch has really set the bar high for Avery. That was a great fight !!!
lol @ the sneaky left. Boll showed good heart to at least get some shots in and not get completely pummelled. Very good finish by Boll. We need more Krys Barches and fewer Andrew Peterses/George Parroses. lol @ punch-out!!! where on earth did they get that sound bite and who thought it would be a good idea to play it for 18,000 people?? I'm definitely in favor
Wow was that a long fight between two worthy opponents- best in a long long time.
Barch is the man. Great fight though, long tilt, better ones you will see.
Great fight. Hats off to the guys in the stripes for letting them go. Barch got Boll good in the beginning with Boll coming back later. The knockout to me was the helmet coming off Boll after a shot to the side of the head. If Boll would of got going sooner it would have been closer. Nod to Barch all the way ; and the officials.
Maybe fight of the year this early in the season?
Really good fight, Barch with the edge. Barch is getting tuned up for a rematch with Carcillo Nov. 15th, cant wait for that one!!!!
Tight "Mike Tyson Punch Out" tune at the end of the fight there
Great fight early in the season! Good job both guys but you gotta give this one to Barch. He dominated the beginning, Boll came back strong but then Barch took over again wailing on Boll a few times as the fight came to an end.
Another one bites the dust. For skill, Krys Barch is hands down the BEST fighter in the league.
great bout by both but boll got rocked
Boll should have stayed down after the first few punches. Nice fight.. Barch is your clear cut winner.
still looking back on the best fight of the year
Fantastic fight. Barch really put some good hits on Boll early, Boll started coming back in the middle, and Barch ended it with some solid hits. This might end up being the best fight of the season.
Just because a fight lasts a long time doesn't make it a great fight. The total number of punches thrown was pretty low. I thought Barch caught Boll off balance with thos first jabs.
While Barch easily gets the nod in this fight. Shouldn't he have gotten 3rd man in, as Boll was engaged with another player already and Barch came in from somewhere other then the immediate area. On the replay, he came flying in from the left side of the screen, well after the scrum started and went right after Boll and then proceeded to "cut" him from the pack and then lay a beat down. As he's pulling Boll from the pack, you can clearly see a Stars players hanging on to Boll's jersey.
Barch not close more spinning around than a washing machine
Gotta give this to Barch. Boll seemed to have tripped over some equipment before the scrap really got started, and while he did recover a bit and threw a few decent punches, it seemed like he wasn't in the position he would have wanted to really land the good ones. Meanwhile Barch was landing some pretty heavy shots, including that helmet-knocker toward the end. Good fight, but I would have liked to see less shoving into the glass from both of them, though.
both crombeen and barch want boll but barch gets em and they skate a lil to the side. barch starts of with a series of hard lefts one which knocks boll down but he gets up and the trade a bunch of punches. very long fight and its lookin like a draw but right near the end barch lands a right that gave him the win imo.. thank god for this fight tho, the rest from last night were disappointing
Definitely give credit to Boll for hanging in there, but Barch manhandled him. Some good shirt punches from both sides. Barch wins.
Nod to Barch for sure.
Boll couldnt reach him
A nice long fight. Krys Barch comes out firing and Jared never really made a decent comeback. He made an attempt, but doesn't complete it.
Great fight, Barch with the win.
Pretty good bout, nice to see the officials allowing it to play its course! I would say Barch gets the nod for this one.
Barch destroyed Boll!!! Boll may have connected with 3 shots out of 20 thrown, while Barch landed about 30
good fight...bout time nhl produces in 08....lucic owned boll last year
Nice fight, the linesmen should have been in there sooner but a great fight. Barch definitely gets the decision.
Best fight I've seen in the NHL since the lockout. Wow. Props to both these guys.
good fight but it would have been better if boll was cought up with one of the linesmen
