Burish sucker punched Murray whilest Murray was trying to take his visor off. Nice to see Chicago fans on this site as they must be the only people on earth that would even think of giving the win to Burish. Maybe the next Swede Burish should square off with is Annika Sorenstam, he may, just may, have a chance for a win.

burish started well,murray ended long does it take to get off your visor?

Posted by alsport on November 30, 2008 at 03:39 PM

I didn't see a lot of punches landing here. Also, I didn't see a lopsided number of punches thrown....or a whole lot that landed.

Posted by ecnerwalj on November 16, 2008 at 10:40 PM

I have no issue with Murray's visor, not like he's hiding behind it. It's the little pansys running around pounding guys from behind and yipping at them, then run and hide when it's time to pay the piper. Murray doesnt hide from his job...

Posted by blackgoldfan on November 17, 2008 at 07:40 PM

boring. even the cheap shot was boring. but murray get the "W".

Posted by toomuchjoe on November 16, 2008 at 10:30 PM

Murray threw more, but never really connected. Edge to Murray.

Posted by Muggsy on November 17, 2008 at 08:54 PM

You remember in grade school when they had track and field day? And kids who didn't finish in the top 3 got a "Participation" ribbon? That's what Burrish should get for every one of his fights. I give the win to Murray for Burrish taking a cheap shot at him while he was going to take his visor off.

Posted by jodan111 on November 17, 2008 at 03:29 AM

All Murray. But this kid fights too much to use a visor! Or at least he did last year. Is he in a different role this year? Burish is a joke

Posted by bruins rule on November 16, 2008 at 10:46 PM

will have to give murray the slight edge in this boring fight.

Posted by BabyfacePitbull on July 06, 2010 at 01:37 AM

This is why im not sad to see Burish go he was suppose to be one of the tough guys on the team but this is how most of his fights went he would show up but lose most fights...Im more sad to see Ben Eager go but welcome John Scott.

Posted by shrk33 on November 17, 2008 at 12:22 AM

The visor is always a hot topic in fights, but don't get on Murray for not taking his visor off in ths bout. When able to, Murray will take the visor off. Sharks fans and knowledgable viewers on this site should know this. Predglen-did you watch the video? Murray had a hit and was challenged, Before Murray could take off his visor he was punched. Try slow motion, maybe it will work better for you and think a bit differently. Burish picked this fight. I'm sure he wished he didn't as most folks do who challenge Murray.

Posted by eadamson on November 17, 2008 at 10:04 PM

As seen at the end of the video, this is total busch league from Burish. Murray fights, but wears a visor, and he makes a point before every fight to take his helmet off... as he's taking his helmet off (the honorable thing to do), Burish pounces (the dishonorable thing to do). As Murray recovers and takes control of the fight, Burish hugs and hangs on for dear life. Murray gets the nod and Burish should be ashamed of himself. to the 6.7% of you who voted for burish because "lol murray didn't take his visor off [email protected]" ... you are beyond hope. Have a nice life.

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on November 16, 2008 at 10:04 PM

Mostly a hugging fest. Its obvious Burish was holding on for life. Murray landed the solid punches, Win to Murray

Posted by DetroitIan on November 17, 2008 at 01:47 AM

Murray landed some decent shots. And was much more active than Burish. Gotta give Murray the win here.

Posted by on November 17, 2008 at 06:08 PM

Finally! Dogge gets his first FM of the season! Man that was long... How many games was that? Burish should be embarrassed... first for jumping Murray while he was embracing "the code" and being a true hockey fighter gentleman and putting his visor aside and then for his poor fighting ability... Easy clear win for Doug!

Posted by BAAAAANNERMAAAN on November 18, 2008 at 10:26 AM

i like the spirit Burish has but he cant hang with the big what is the point going after them? Leave it to Walker or someone.....

Posted by tstack on November 17, 2008 at 09:35 AM

Size advantage was all the difference. Murray.

Posted by kimocoyote on November 17, 2008 at 10:19 AM

Ok fight. I have expressed my opinion on helmets and visors. Want to fight take them off. Murray wins it.

Posted by will530 on November 17, 2008 at 01:35 AM

I don't know what video you were watching predglen, but Douglas does back away to take his visor off (like he always does) but Burish jumps him with one hand on the chinstrap.

Posted by Ripper20 on November 17, 2008 at 02:44 PM

Burish takes exception to Murray stepping up to make a clean hit, then tries to ambush him as he tries to remove the lid. Serves him right that the fight ends up with Murray handing his ass to him. Murray all the way!

Posted by The Linkster on November 17, 2008 at 03:29 PM

Contrary to what Pat Foley said, Murray wasn't hesitant to drop the gloves. He attempted to remove his visor but was sucker-punched by Burish before he could do so. Class act that Burish.

Posted by JCast408 on November 17, 2008 at 03:21 AM

Murray gets sucker punched by Burrish while attempting to remove his lid. Murray continues to out muscle his opponent. Who says Swedes don't fight?

Posted by Juha82 on November 17, 2008 at 02:02 PM

Murray with stronger show, landin more punches. He did very well about middle. Not so great fight at all. CLEAR WIN goes to D.Murray.

Posted by SJSHARK3 on November 17, 2008 at 05:14 PM

Murray tapped that a**..............These clowns that are complaining about the visor should WATCH the freakin fight..........Murray tries to throw his helmet and is jumped.........

Posted by tjshoe on November 17, 2008 at 10:40 PM

How many times does Burish have to get his butt kicked? Let Eager fight for the Hawks.

Posted by surfersully on November 23, 2008 at 02:06 PM

Classic...Murray is all class trying to get the visor off and gets jumped in the process. Like RAndy and Drew said, I'd jump Murray too... Friggin beast. The best part of that fight is Murray giving the riot act to Burish in the box for not letting him get the helmet off...douche. Hopefully there will be a rematch Wednesday...ohhh things to be Thankful for!!!

Posted by blues10 on November 17, 2008 at 02:37 PM

Murray keeps his visor on what a puss move.

Posted by hnacht on November 17, 2008 at 08:09 PM

Murrary with the win. I hope Burish has some bloody knuckles today, all he had to do was hold his horses for two seconds and Murray would have finished taking off his helmet. Go Douggie!

Posted by ptownskater on November 17, 2008 at 12:48 PM

It was good to see the sharks finally fight again after a long drought. Murray did a good job, but I would like to see more Jody Shelley fights.

Posted by abucketofyuck on November 17, 2008 at 04:43 PM

being a blackhawks fan, i'm embarassed by burishes display. hes a mediocre fighter at best, let alone he sucker punched a man with a shield. shame on you adam. go pull that sissy shit in the minors.

Posted by Behn Wilson on November 17, 2008 at 10:27 PM

OK, I officially delete the ''ri'' and demote ''BUriSH to ''Bush'' league for taking that cheap shot as Murray tried to honourably remove his visor.Desreved smack down win for, the announcers' favourite word... ''Douglas''.

Posted by Spon on November 17, 2008 at 03:41 AM

Well, if Burish wants to bust his hand on the visor, that's his prerogative. Otherwise, let Murray take off his visor, then receive the beating you deserve.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on November 17, 2008 at 09:16 AM

Douglas with the W

Posted by bentrod on November 17, 2008 at 08:02 PM

Clear win by Murray. Burish didn't even phase him with the sucker-punch.

Posted by Nick R on November 18, 2008 at 01:18 PM

Shit, if I were about to fight Doug Murray I'd try and get at him before he took his helmet off too. He is one big guy. Murray, no contest. If you voted Burish you're a Hawks fan in denial.

Posted by lostit23 on November 18, 2008 at 02:04 AM

I also hate when punkasses leave on their visors to fight, but all the dipshiats talking crap about Murray need to get your faggitty heads out of yer arses. Murray ALWAYS REMOVES HIS LID!! Watch the sucker punch by that little BlackCock. Bitz move.

Posted by Matacz on November 17, 2008 at 05:02 PM

Doug Murray win this one. A solid performance.

Posted by shawkie on November 17, 2008 at 09:41 PM

Murray won this one easily. I was watching this on T.V last night and Burish got scared seeing Murray attempting to take his helmet off. I'd probably be the same way! haha...

Posted by Clowes ABeast29 on November 16, 2008 at 10:29 PM

Irish Brawler... Murray if given time ALWAYS takes the visor off but that is only if hes given the opportunity, but burish didnt seem to care and rushed into the fight. as its up to the fighter to do what he feels he needs to do to win the scrap... unfortunatly... it didnt work out too well for adam, ahahahaha... he got what he deserved... win murray

Posted by bluelinebasher on November 17, 2008 at 12:07 PM

Does anyone have the video of Murray in the penalty box yapping at Burish to let him take off his hat next time? Classic.

Posted by sj408 on November 17, 2008 at 08:13 PM

easy win for Murray. could see why Burish didn't want to wait for Murray to get his lid off. If Murray got squared and ready it would've been a one hitter quitter.

Posted by stizz14 on November 19, 2008 at 02:09 AM

don't mess with the big swead .... murray all the way!

Posted by wristshot300 on March 19, 2009 at 12:24 AM

Any player who wants to fight with a visor on shouldnt be able to fight. win burish just for the fact that murray was a pussy and hid behind a visor the whole fight.

Posted by IrishBrawler on November 16, 2008 at 10:18 PM

I hate guys who fight with their visors on but Murray tried to get the thing off but Burrish wouldn't give him the chance. In my opinion? If a player leaves his visor on to fight then his opponent should be able to use his hockey stick fighting visor boy.

Posted by barnibizer on November 17, 2008 at 05:15 AM

What are the commentators on about?? Burish is tiny compared to miss match in size, and they are saying how strong Murray is??!! This is a poor show from Murray, altho i do think he is a decent HW. Nice couple of early punches from Burish. Draw

Posted by gmr133 on November 17, 2008 at 02:06 PM

Why is that big man in the motorcycle helmet beating on that little boy? Lame fight--everything that's wrong with fighting nowadays--fight after a good hit, fight with a visor on, hugfest, neither guy is a good fighter. Props to Murray for trying to take the helmet off--thumbs down to Burish for suckering him while he was doing it. Lame fight.

Posted by ling2212 on November 17, 2008 at 12:58 PM

I have to take marks away from Burish. Murry was trying to take the helmet off and Burish jumped him.

Posted by FotiuNystrom on November 17, 2008 at 08:50 PM

Win Murray Kudos to Burish for hangin in.

Posted by MarCH on November 16, 2008 at 10:14 PM

That's close, but Murray gave the best jabs!

Posted by tony0786 on November 17, 2008 at 02:52 PM

Burish is a cheap bastard. He knew the only way he could win is to get a sucker punch in and he still lost. Win Murray.

Posted by tomales on November 17, 2008 at 12:07 AM

Douglas rather easily.

Posted by TheGrouch on November 17, 2008 at 03:08 PM

Burish deserved that beating after that cowardly sucker-punch while Murray was taking his helmet off. What a clam.

Posted by sharksfan08 on November 17, 2008 at 11:39 AM

Murray tried to drop the visor, but burish jumped him and wound up eating 2 big uppercuts. from there all he could do was hold on and wait for the refs to break it up. gotta give the win to murray, burish's only punches were thrown while murray was trying to remove his helmet.

Posted by Gunslinger on November 17, 2008 at 05:05 AM

The color man is a clown, trying to defend or explain Murrays decision to leave the visor on. Either way, a crappy fight that should have never happened.

Posted by omorales on November 17, 2008 at 03:14 PM

I gave the fight to Burish, Murray wears a visor AND doesn't take it off, so it's an automatic loss
