Starts after Boogaard runs Edler in the Canuck zone. Hordi comes over to tell him no more running of his mates, and Boogaard obliges. Boogs throwing a few punches, that miss. Hordi tries some blind, swimming punches, that miss as well, then goes down to his knees and turtles while Boogaard waits for him to get up - refs stop that from happening. Hate seeing a turtle job, but, with Derek Boogaard waiting to tee off on you as soon as your head pokes out, I can see why he stayed in the shell. Draw, was hoping for more, and in this rivalry, I'm sure we'll see some more.
That "s it?
Hordi falls. Props to Boogaard for not throwin when he's down. Draw. How can you give a win when you can't see what happened?
I swear the camera guys are on valium this year, it takes them 30 seconds to find the fight......
Great camera work. Who could declare a winner with this footage? Draw
Call it a draw since they forgot to show it
Terrible footage. I give it a draw for lack of evidence. In relative heights, Hordichuk looks like a toddler fighting Boogaard. Good for him, man-ing up like that.
I gave it a draw, since you can't really see anything worthwhile from the clip. It did look like Boogaard was gonna get the edge, though.
Darcy gets a free pass tonight. He's game though and will throw down with anyone and always holds his own.
Terrible camera work, but saw that both players each landed two shots then Hordichuk on the ground, probably just losing his balance to the massive Boogaard, not enough evidence for a win. Draw.
Respect to Boogard, against guys he considers his peers he's honorable. He could have really decked Hordichuk there at the end but he let up. I just wish there was better footage of it, hard to tell what happened.
Win Boogaard, but not much of a fight.
class act boogeyman
Where were the cameras looking?
Hordichuk threw a couple but wanted no part of big derek ,and he didn't hammer him while on his knees, classy move.
I saw a different feed of this game, and Boogey got a couple decent shots in early, then Darcy turtled up, I'm sure he knew he'd get his clock cleaned. Don't give Hordi credit for "Manning up". If that were the case he wouldn't have been licking the big man's skates asking not to be pummelled. Boogey wins in a short crap fight.
Was Hord trying to lick the guy's skates? Get up!
not really a fight..boogaard would have easily won
Well, as far as the fight goes it was a crap fight. No real footage of any damage, BUT look at the position Hordichuk ends up in. On the ice, hands trying to protect himself from getting pummeled, and Boogaard standing above him. Boogaard does NOT finish him because he has class, yet he COULD have. Win Boogaard. Gotta give Hordichuk a little credit though. It takes balls to stand up to that giant.
Nothing to look at here. The final seconds are missing and all you see is Hordi on the ground in a turtle. So therefore unfair to Boo to call it a draw. Nothing fight and give the win to Boo based on hordi being on the ice for some reason. And boo's for the camera people.
crap fight,boogaard slight edge,although no real footage to speak of.
Very weak, Boogie would pound that punk in a real fight,
that's the fastest turtling i've ever seen.
Not sure how somebody gives hordichuk a win. They should lose their voting privileges. Boogaard has always had a lot of respect for the code and it shows in this fight. Afterwards the linesman is having a conversation with the wild center apparently about the mismatch. Would have loved to been a fly on the wall.
Boogie gets a 6 rating for doing what good fighters do......not pounding the crap out of someone who's laying on the ice. No credit to Hordichuk as he didnt do ANYTHING that I can tell, except drop the gloves then drop to his knees. Unfortunately, only a half dozen guys in the league that will go toe to toe with Boogie anymore.......
Credit to ''the Horda'' for stepping up (literally), but iI don't think that inspecting Boogaards'skate lacing technique is quite how he imagined it would end.
I saw this live and it was not a fight....Hordi turtled as soon as he grabbed on and realized maybe who he had grabbed onto. I hate when people say "give him credit for stepping in"....WHY?? If he would've challenged, thrown a punch, or not turtled then yes, give him credit. All Hordi did was confront Boogie, drop his gloves, and then kiss Boogie's skates. The credit should be given to Boogaard for not drilling Hordi when he could've. I like it when undersized, overmatched guys go in and try their best against a guy like Boogie...they deserve credit. But Hordi deserves nothing, as far as credit goes for stepping in and not putting forth any effort.
Short fight......Hordichuck is lucky..he could have got creamed.
wow sweet camera work
not to good of a fight Boogs with the slight edge
marcy darcy messed up his only clean pair of underwear. boogy wins
Looked like Boogeyman was starting to wind them up when the picture ended. I tried to watch the game last night on NHL Center Ice but there were transmission problems on it and two other games.
Boogaard wins hands down. it looked as if he knocked DH down with an upper cut but i couldnt tell.
Tonight should be a good rematch if Boogy gets to play.
easy for big man
Hordichuk is game, but doesn't get in tight enough to take the uncaged monster on. The fight is a DEEERAW because nothing really happens.... IT'S THE LAWWWW OF THE WEST!!!
Great to see dirty playing Hordichuk get what's coming to him. Easy win for Boogard.
Yeah not a very good cam on this one, it was a classy move not to pound his face when hordi fell. Boogaard did look like he got one big shot in.
i'm thinkin boogeyman has the slight edge in this. but cbc has terrible cammeras. always has. hordi looked like a garden nome next to the bogey man. can't say i'ld ever think of scrappin a guy that much bigger than me!
There is a difference in "Manning up" or "Stepping up" and knowing your boundaries. Boogaard did land 2 big ones, but i bet he threw them just to remind DH who he was going after. Darcy may have heart, but maybe has taken a few too many bombs to the brain. Win: Boogaard. Hands down. He could have pummeled him into a puddle. But he ddidnt. I kind of like this Boogaard. BTW: If you look on You tube it has the FSN feed, and it actually shows the majority of the fight. This one here kind of SUCKS.
Boogaard landed the best punch of the fight. Hordichuk just ducked his head and hid WIN FOR THE BOOGEYMAN!!
Edge Boogaard for landing the only punch
There is a better video on youtube. Boogaard connected with two solid rights. Gets the easy win
Boogaard wins easily
clear draw...a 2
Coverage of this fight sucks! Can't really tell what may have happened. Draw
Short "duty" fight. Hordichuk felt he had to make a statement after the initial hit. Boogaard did not look very interested. Not a big Boogaard fan but pretty class all the same for holding back when Hordi was down.
see that uppercut, boogard almostg landed holy shit, he didnt land 1 though edge to hordichuck
Lame film....Boogaard with the appearance of a win because Darcy was on his knees
I once had a turtle and I named it Darcy.
Gotta give Hordi credit for stepping up, but are you kidding me? If you're not ready to scrap with my boy - you better not drop your gloves. Slight win for the Boogey man because he at least threw some real punches and didn't turtle up like a Sally.
What a girl, Darcy. Way to cover up and plea that Boogey doesn't finish you off. Burrows is next
