Yawnfest. Think they call it tonsil hockey.
Damn, this sucked.
Another case of homer announcers. Put Godard to sleep before they even locked horns?? Idiots! Both are tough & Godard has proven & earned his stripes,
Pretty even fight, Godard was a bit more aggressive towards the end. But a pretty clear cut draw. Get ready for NY fans to call this a dominating win for Fritz. TEXT BOOK DRAW morons.
Just because Godard held his own against a giant (anyone ever see him beat down on Chara? that was a good one), but that doesn't mean he gets the win over fritz. fritz may have had the size advantage but this was a draw. and speaking of chara, i'd maybe be interested in seeing the slovak go up against fritz because of the height thing, but i think most people know chara isn't a great fighter and fritz would probably enjoy that fight. but boogie would definitely be fun.
draw, nothing really landed hard
Draw, Fritz is definitely beatable, but is just so big that it's going to take a monster to take him down. Boogaard - Frtiz needs to happen. That's pretty much the heavyweight bout in the league right now.
DRAW - nobody did anything impressive to give them the win.
fight could have been much better, draw
it had to be callled a draw. fritz had godard in the beginning but godard came back in the end. draw
Draw. Both fighters were trying to land shots, Fritz more early and Godard more late, with nothing damaging landing for either side. Good on Godard for getting in tight when it looked like Fritz was trying to land a big shot, but it still doesn't make it a Godard win.
how soon till fritz meets bgl again then we will see
Fritz made a name for himself pretty quickly in the NHL, it seems. A pretty even fight, can't give an edge to anyone here.
I gave it a draw but was close to giving Godard a slight win.
Gotta call this one a Draw
Fritz early, Godard at the end. Call it a draw but with a slight edge to Godard. He scrapped Fritz in junior and schooled him there too.
Both players connected mostly to each others' helmets. Draw
okay fight with godard getting a slight edge
Nothing much here draw
Who the hell is voting for Godard? Clear Draw
This is an interesting fight......I am surprised Fritz didn't get a nose bleed from being that tall! :D Naw, in all seriousness......I think it went more of a draw. Godard had more thrown, and aside from a couple good ones from the head, Fritz seemed to be really unfazed by the hits. But good overall fight.
godard was more active and landed a few more punches but this was a draw.
And to think Fritz has a brother in the CFL who is even bigger. Goddard was hanging on taking a purely defensive posture. Even at best.
Too many Godard fans on here or something draw at best.
I was at the game. The Pens were trailing. Godzie wanted to turn things around. I can't see this as being anything but a draw. Don't see how you could say Godzie won the fight - unless hitting a guy in the back of the helmet is considered landing quality punches. Clearly - Fritz won the first round and Godzie did ok towards the end. Not a fight that changed the momentum of the game - Malkin and Crosby did that. Great to see Eric back at Nassau Coliseum - he was well liked when he played here. Fritzie did well - for a guy who just had his third NHL fight. Laraque, Peters and now Godard. Well, say what you will about Fritz, but he sure does not shy away from some of the NHL's best. Can't play hockey worth a lick - but he does provide physical support to the Isles. Gotta keep him up....
Slight edge to Fritz
it was a good fight got to call it a draw.
Godard with the only real punches thrown.
Fritz hits like my sister. He had some chances to do real damage and instead took these little whimpy punches. He let Godard get back in the fight.
Godard got more hits in, Fritz kinda just held on. All though Fritz did get a few punches in but none really hurt Godard. Therefor Godard with a win but not by much on this one.
good job by Godard to neutralize the giant! Fritz with his first bad showing of the season. hopefully it doesn't become a trend.
These Islander announcers shoud be calling auctions or indian leg wrestling, they sure as hell are brutal at calling games and fights, theyre so in love with the islanders, its sickening, almost as bad as the NESN announcers, decision Goddard! Fritz is huge....
win godard plus fritz looked scared as well
Godard the edge..... he does well against the giants... no bombs though in this tilt.
not a great fight no big punches tossed out edge to godard
I definitely want for Fritz and Boogaard because these two are very close in size and weight. The Isles play Minnesota on Dec. 19. Mark it on your calendars.
edge to goddard
Godard with the W. He sure does well aginst the big boys.
AS AN ISLES FAN AND A GODARD FAN I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS ONE ALL DAY,DIDNT LIVE UP TO EXPECTATIONS THE SMALLEST OF DECISIONS TO EG
Godard seems to be great against really tall guys???.....he has owned Boogy, MacIntyre and now beat Fritz in an uneventful fight.....not sure what the reason one thing that helps is agaist all three of these guys he has been the clear aggressor....he seems to think he is going to beat them....more so than when he faces guys his own size like McGrattan??
Fritz you girl. Bunny repeat punches.
Geez the announcers were reading Godard's obituary and there he is sneaking shots to Fritz's head. Gotta give Gods the win on points.
Godard has fought Boogard 100 times so that size is not a real issue but Fritz should be thankful is is that big.... It was his size the kept Godard from killing him. The fight was a lot closer then it would have been had fritz been Godards size so Ill give the guy credit but again Godard plays Jack (Jack and the beanstock for those who missed that) and takes out the bigger man!
godard does not shy away from the big guys, did really well against the boogarrd in the west conference , and now he taking on the ones in the east
godard with slight nod,found the best way to fight fritz is in close.
Slight edge to Godard.
I know MCB. He was beaten to a bloody pulp by a midget wearing a Ranger jersey. Hence the psychotic Ranger obsession.
EG stays on the monster and keeps him on the defense.Excellent attack for godsmack....
Godard for the activity and endurance...Fritz just alot of jersey jabs.
Fritz early, Godard late, could easily be a draw but Godard landed a few good one's, I'll give it to him. I think Fritz's problem is that he needs to get angry and he'll do much better.
Its hard to tell on this screen, but I saw the game on tv and you clearly see Mitch Fritz say "I'm tired" which I qualify as a white flag. Forfeiture leads to an automatic win for Godard. I think I would give it to Godard regardless, Mitch had it early then Godard took over with a very strong finish.
Godard win. Just another day in the office for Godard fighting another gaint and winning.
This Fritz guy is worthless! Is he another Zack Stortini? HE is huge, yet all he did was try to hold Godard at bay. GODARD wins because he actually threw and landed punches.
Godard with NARROW WIn.
WIN GODARD! it's official, godard is the giant killer! boogey, mac, and fritz
Fritsy quits, plain and simple and that type of performance is, I'm sorry to say Ob-so- loot-ly Dreadfull.... Fritz goes down a notch on the ranking list.....
godard obviously the better, but smaller fighter. fritz seemed content to just hang in with the tougher guy.
Godard is the best when it comes to fighting the beasts in the NHL. Its crazy how big the fighters are getting these days. I know it is boring to watch but for the smaller guy dirty boxing is the only way to fight these guys. Godard with the W
Goddard worked him over. Fritz is an amazon. Put him in a pepsi ice girl skirt and call it a day. Isles' announcers are such homers it makes me wanna shove powdered glass in my eardrums.
godard is 1 of the better ones in the east
Fritz was winning untill goddard got in close. then goddard takes over and gets a "W". This should put the fritz for champ talk to an end. note to the tuff guys coming out of the minors, this is the best league in the world, so you better pack a big lunch.
Amazing when a 6.4' 230 guy is made to look small! I think Fritz needs to work on the cardio, he was done after his first 3 punches and the ensuing battle for position. Surprising that Godard went to lefts, which should have been to Fritz's advantage, but that is where Godard got the better of him.
I think Fritz realised he was up against a formidable foe in Godard and decided to bow out while he still had the chance - "Im tired". Godard was just getting started...
At the outset I thought Fritz would dominate but it soon turned around and I gave it to Godard. Good fight with lots of dangerous punches.
pretty solid fight, Godard reminded me of the old hockey scrap where just about everything came off, jersey and pads like Probert.
Eric Godard is my hero! Close fight,edge to soon to be heavyweight champ, the God!
Nice work by Godard. Thought it might turn into a hugfest, but he was just working in close to negate Fritz's reach advantage. Smart win, thought no bombs landed. Just short jabs.
Glad I see others think eric is the beast master this year! From an oiler fan!! Sorry mac/boogy/fritzy!
Fritz early, Godard late. Edge to Godard. Oh, and December 19th, mark it down. Boogaard vs Fritz.
Fritzy didn't want any more love from the God of War by the end of this one. Slight win to Godard.
Godard gets the W because he landed better shots, and should have gotten crushed
Godard is THE man. After watching Peters get spanked by Fritz, Mr, Godard sends a memo that he is indeed the "bull of the woods". A close fight though, I want Boogaard vs. Fritz. That should be intense !
boring ass fight, old ass mccarty whooped godards but fritz' big ass cant
Decent tilt, but I give it to Goddard for my vote. Fritz looked like he didn't like those body shots. For a Giant he doesn't seem to capable. BGL sent him to the hospital for X-Rays after a lopsided start just this one. Fritz starts well but as soon as Goddard countered he was hangin on...
Godard definitely knows what he's doing against the tall heavyweights. If he was more consistent against smaller opponents he'd be the top guy. In this fight Godard got his left arm free of his jersey and got the better of big Fritz at the end. I'm a little disappointed if Fritz actually did quit.
Yeah, I'd have to give the edge to Godard too, ever since he took down Boogaard I'd have to say he's the man. Not my favourite, but still the man.
i gave godard the win in this fight.he was the more active fighter.
"Fritz may put him to sleep" ??? - rockin' him to sleep, maybe,.....
I thought Fritz would win easy with the early shots, but Godard came back later. Draw.
last I checked a jab to the face is better that a punch to the back of a helmet, still a draw
Fritz was just trying to take Goddards jersey off.
I give this to Godard, he tied up fritz pretty well and got in close, and only let Fritz land the short range jersey jabs and a few body shots.
What a couple of Beasts. Over 500 pounds of battle bots. Was surprised to see Fritz actually clutching Goddard. Had both hands wrapped around him. Goddard threw the cleaner punches. Edge Goddard
EG slight edge...landed harder blows
Godard, won this. Fritz started great, but he stopped fighting early and tried to hold on.
Godard more active....
I give Godard the win for being more active
not really pickin up on the buzz about big mitch fritz,did alright against george,lost to godard,lost to orr,bullsh*t scrap with a middleweight he really hasnt impressed me.definately see some promise,it seems like he lacks a real mean streak,cause obviously he could be a killer.
fritz looked as though he was going to dominate, but godard came back to win the fight at the end.
Godard definitely wins and has easily cemented himself as one of the top 3 heavies in the league, if not #1 since he tagged Boogey last year and knocked him silly..
fritz had had enough at the end of this one....i love the rocky balboa strategy godard uses against this giant.....soften himi up with the rib shots, then bounce a few off fritz's face at the end....godard's one of the best technical fighters in the league
