Patty O'Bergeron takes umbrage with Gorges late and high hit and responds. No doubt Bergie was remembering Gorges cheap hit after a goal in the last regular season game in this one. Great slugfest between two guys not known for it, but the adopted son of Boston surprises Gorges and pummels him with a series of lefts to the face and scores the KO.

not much of a fight

god bless bergeron bergeron

Draw. Kudos for Patrice fighting due to his concussion problems. Now for all the LUCIC lovers, Lucic better pray he gets suspended for 2 games for the stick shot, otherwise he will have to answer the bell in Montreal. Lucic is not tough, his time in the Vancouver Giants team, he only fought guys who were smaller or non fighters. What goes around comes around. He is a third line player at the best and wouldn't make 3/4s of the NHL teams. He is the Bruins version of Steve Downie. DO NOT COMPARE HIM TO CAM NEELY. NOT EVEN CLOSE. btw, I am a Bruins fan, not a fan of the overated LUCIC.

mcb your the most laughable knob on this site!!! stick with ringette pal and leave the site to people that know hockey!! Perhaps bergeron should pummel you as well! Sounds good to me! Anyone else agree?

Posted by grappler11 on April 20, 2009 at 12:54 PM

nice left concession boy. stood up for himself, big props, if i had the head injuries he had, i would have been pissed too,, don't think gorges was expecting that

Posted by Formerref on April 19, 2009 at 01:46 PM

Gotta love the Hab fans, no matter what they always win, even after Gorges gets his ass whupped!! Look at the bright side, the habs only have 2 more games to play before they can work on their golf games.....ah yes, nothing better then listening to whining hab fans!!

Posted by Gunslinger on April 19, 2009 at 08:23 AM

Bergeron's first NHL fight and he drops Gorges. Laughable, kinda like the Habs chances in this series.

Posted by jbart321 on April 19, 2009 at 10:30 PM

Nice punch by Bergeron. Georges is a punk and worthless.

Posted by Sasky001 on April 19, 2009 at 11:50 PM

Who knew Bergeron (who unlike Luchick can actually play hockey) would be the one who could teach Luchick how to fight like a man. There is hope for the Bruins.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on April 19, 2009 at 10:58 AM

Bergeron was pissed. Nice takedown punch. W to Bergeron

Posted by staceyb on April 19, 2009 at 06:09 AM

Gorges got his grill rattled.

Posted by Snowrider on April 19, 2009 at 03:16 PM

Once again a habs player get beated. Thats it, they are what we call hockey PLAYER, not fighter. By the way, Lucic show one more time are girly he his with his buttplug in his ass. I'm from were he use to play before the nhl and his not a man, he always fight against smaller than him. He show his girly behavior by getting his emotion take over. Hope he's gonna burn in hell lol ciao you big bruins american idiot fans

Posted by keepersc06 on April 19, 2009 at 04:19 PM

Only real fight this playoffs, Bergeron all the way not allowing gorges to push him around at the end of a boston domination

Posted by KariyaFTW on April 19, 2009 at 01:23 PM

Someone needs to post the NESN feed from Boston, especially the part where they slow down the punch that knocks Gorges on his can. Direct chin shot, you can see Gorges head pop-back right before he falls on his ass/turtles. Pretty embarrassing to pick a fight with a guy with PCS and then get your butt handed to you. I'm not a Bruins fan, I'm a Ducks fan living in Boston... kind of hate the Bruins actually... but you Montreal homers calling this a draw, or even worse, a Gorges win really need to get a clue. This site is about rating fights, not being a blind homer and picking your guy regardless of the outcome.

Posted by dethier83 on December 01, 2010 at 12:44 PM

bergeron is the man gorges he is a cheap shot artist... good for bergie to stand up for him self, he showed y he has the A on his sweater... i miss the bruins get rid of jack edwards on play by play... and i am bruins fan

Win by Bergeron , but Patrice stop throwing when the other is down. Nice surprise , who knew he was a lefty ?

Posted by moneybags on April 19, 2009 at 02:36 AM

what a disgraceful year for the habs.can you say sweep!! laraque is so useless, and gainey benches a goal scorer in plakenec!!! they continue to lose fights and games. great job patrice,,,mcb keep up the great reviews...your new meds are on the way

patrice bergeron with the win in this fight.he landed some nice left hand shots.

Posted by Cough on April 19, 2009 at 04:11 AM

Way to go Bergy! Gorges has been the B's punching bag all week!!!

Posted by spartacus84 on April 23, 2009 at 05:54 PM

Bergeron is one of the cleanest players in the league. Gorges may have thought he had a Lady Bing lackey, but that left hand that drilled him to the ice proved otherwise. Bergeron is all class, and his comeback is inspiring.

Posted by nikcanada on April 20, 2009 at 11:23 PM

Gorges humiliation represents the Habs' season -- They definitely miss Souray. No one wants to play for this team anymore and the only talent this 'Hockey Zealot' town can attract is now on Crescent Street.

Posted by Cross31093 on April 19, 2009 at 01:16 AM

Not sure if the Bergeron beatdown of Georges or the scoreboard hurt MCB's feeling more. Solid fight by Patrice, good to know he can throw down if he wants.

Posted by az09456 on April 19, 2009 at 10:11 AM

What a douche move by Gorges. Going after a guy with concussion problems. Good for Bergeron, knocking him on his ass his his first fight. I would say that i hope to see more from him, but with his concussion issues...

Posted by godisangry on April 20, 2009 at 03:32 PM

I'm a Devils fan living in Boston and some Bruins fans can be real big douche bags so thats why this is gonna hurt you canadiens fans. Gorges throws 3 punches, helmet, a miss, and a body shot just before he goes down. The video is up there, go watch it again without your blinders on. Bergeron on the other hand lands 4 punches in and around his face and he sure as hell connects as Gorges goes down. Whether or not the punch put him down or just capped the beating you can't say Gorges wins or even comes close.

Posted by terrystanjohn on April 19, 2009 at 07:02 AM

Bergeron with the win....nice to see the rivalry embodied in two players not know for fisticuffs.....great game by the B's, the Hab's had no answers.....BGL with Koviu and Kovalev? Gainey needs to have his head examined!

Posted by pinchy on April 19, 2009 at 10:35 AM

Typical montreal fans vote win for gorges, get your head out of your asses!!! bang..bang down goes another Canadien....also Lapierre was lucky that lucic didn't lay the smack down on his ass..

Posted by Bruins29 on April 19, 2009 at 12:11 PM

Bergeron with a big left drops that loser Georges like a bad habit. Win Bergy.

Posted by pmarz1 on April 19, 2009 at 09:23 AM

roflmao at gorges.....decides to pick a fight with a guy who's had serious concussion issues and what happens?? he gets dropped!!! hahahahaha how ya holding up mcb??? your team is an embarassment to the sport, to past Canadian teams, and to Montreal fans as well. How's your boy bgl doing on that first line??? what a complete joke. Nice to see you and bruiser are still sucking on each other, you two deserve each other....... As for the couple of comments regarding Lucic's hit, check the video, no stick contact to the head, only his glove, no suspension.........

Posted by Hockeyislyfe on April 19, 2009 at 08:01 AM

The only hit that Gorges got on Bergeron was before they dropped the gloves.....And Larague , didn't they get that guy to stop Lucic, how the hell is that working for the Canadiens...........Really thought that one out!!....Oh and one more thing MCB you should lay off the Booze once in a while, try sobering up after a Canadiens Loss before wrighting your comments...

Posted by Hendo67 on April 19, 2009 at 12:10 PM

Way to go Bergeron, i was so jacked after seeing this. Bergy is amazing.

lmao bergeron gave him da hands dats wut geroges gets but its funny bergeron never has been in a fight and georges fights all da time dats comedy

Posted by Esjay1980 on April 20, 2009 at 03:20 PM

I was at this game and can tell you that the air was electric! Even more so after Bergeron, of all people, absolutely handed Gorges his ass. Anyone who votes Gorges won the fight should have their account revoked...

Posted by iamthewalrus on April 19, 2009 at 01:25 AM

mcb789, I am also a huge habs fan, but how can you consider Josh Gorges to be the winner of this scrap? He got his ass handed back to him by Bergeron with that precise and sharp left. I am also disappointed that my team lost, but you gotta give Bergeron his props. That performance from him was really surprising and impressive.

Posted by qazwsxedcfv on April 19, 2009 at 11:24 AM

How much lower can Gorges go? This sums up his character. Picks a fight with a guy with concussion problems that has never fought in his NHL career and gets dropped like it's nothing.

Posted by Cid on April 19, 2009 at 02:56 AM

Who would have guessed the first Bruin's fight of the post season would be a Bergeron scrap? lol. Win Bergeron!!!

Posted by Basil5555 on April 19, 2009 at 12:14 PM

I dont like either of these teams much but it looks like role reversal with these teams, the old Habs used to goat the Bruins into dumb penalties and alot of yapping and running around while they would win on the scoredboard. The habs have no discipline at all and Gainey needs to wake up and get them to start playing hockey and knock off the extra-ciricular BS, he should wonder why they are down 2-0 and look like the Bruins used to against them when he played. Win for Bergeron with the big lft at the end. Habs fans cant be happy with the way they are playing and I cant blame them.

Posted by b.t.wilson on April 19, 2009 at 01:54 AM

Pretty scary fight from a guy like Bergeron with the cranium problems he's had, gotta give him massive credit. I don't hate the Habs nor do I love the Bruins, but Montreal just looks quite douchey as a team lately, not on the scoreboard but the way they are playing. I feel bad for their fans, there just seems to be too much running around and talking, and not enough results. This was a great fight because of the energy and the combatants, I called it an 8 and domination by Bergeron, in what the beatlemaniac perfectly named the "precise and sharp left". p.s. every playoff game that passes, we all get one step closer to this site telling us the true identity of mcbj and how she is actually a part of this wonderful organization. I can't wait to find out to what capacity it is!

Posted by Bruinsbear on April 19, 2009 at 12:40 PM

damn bergeron never new u had it in you nice finish, reminds me of hunwicks first fight 1 punch knockout, the habs will never 4get that one

Posted by millwright1966 on April 19, 2009 at 08:31 AM

Bergeron with the win...he caught Georges just before he fell...big fight win for bergy

Omg it's gonna take the habnots 3 Months to get the Bruins Footprints off their Arses!! as for Gorges... Someone change his diaper, and send him back to the daycare center!

Posted by bruinsguy on April 20, 2009 at 08:44 PM

Bergeron with the clear wind, another typical canadian cheap shot artist. MCB AZJIM AND BRUISEYOUREYE, three canadian stooges. You are blind as they are stupid. You three morons couldnt judge a fight if your life depended on it. HABS S**K AND SO DO YOU THREE.

Posted by ts24nascar on April 19, 2009 at 12:38 AM

Bergeron's first carrer fight and what a great showing it was. Knockdown win for Bergeron. Lose the game 5-1, down in the series 2-0, and lose a fight to a guy who has never dropped the gloves before in the NHL. Not a good night for the Habs.

Posted by bilbobaggins on April 19, 2009 at 09:44 AM

Josh Gorges looked like a fool instigating on a non fighter. Then he got CREAMED by Bergeron. Good symbolism to how the series is going for Montreal. KO and beaten down to the ice.

Posted by FN_Five_seveN on January 29, 2013 at 03:09 PM

lol bergeron knocked the shit out of georges why dosent he fight more often and where is the fight he had last night against the huricanes

Posted by GSP09 on April 19, 2009 at 11:05 AM

There is about 90% of the voters on this site that are Boston fans, Georges slips and they go nuts, and if they really see the game they will admit to have seen the crushing hit of BGL on ugly nose Lucie ,he litterally crushed her in the boards and what does Lucie do : nothing , she'd rather use his stick and crosscheck Lapierre in the face ; she deserves at least a 4 games suspension , but I hope she doesn't get anything, cause I want to see BIG GEORGE smack that big ugly crooked nose of hers.It is only two games for you homers , now we will see you in Montreal the civilized city. Your stadium is an awfull zoo..

Posted by bruiseyoureye on April 19, 2009 at 08:52 AM

Posted by mcb789 on April 19, 2009 at 01:00 AM

gorges with the win in this fight. gorges landed some good punches to bergeron face before gorges slip and fell to the ice. the habs will win the series !!! LETS GO HABS!!!

Posted by azjim on April 19, 2009 at 02:42 AM

Oh, god, I know I'm gonna hate this, but I sorta agree with mcb. Gorges did not get hit when he fell. NHL Network had another angle and Gorges landed a right and fell. Bergeron landed a right at the start so both landed one punch, and I call it a draw. But mcb is still a douchebag.

Posted by bigdog2007 on April 21, 2009 at 01:56 PM

Homers galore. It was a slip not a punch ladies. Speaking of ladies, Mila Lucie is the biggest spot picking P*ssy in the league. Why didn't he go with Laraque after getting crushed? He is a chickenshit that's why. He is real tough with Lapierre the 155 pound 4-legged toilet brush.

Posted by Bosoxfan3 on April 19, 2009 at 02:26 AM

The fact that Gorges picked on Bergeron is so.... Canadien. And for a complete non-fighter, Bergeron apparently has some pretty heavy left hooks in his arsenal.

Posted by Rex from MN on April 20, 2009 at 09:24 AM

A good example of how playing for a tough team can make a finesse player tougher than an opposing finesse player. Win Bergeron. I don't see anything wrong with playing BGL on a line with top scorers. I recall Gretzky and Kurri scoring just fine with Semenko riding shotgun. Not that any Habs compare with Gretzky & Kurri...

Posted by nthawk41 on April 24, 2009 at 05:54 PM

Big left to the chin...score the KO for Bergeron!

Posted by BlackNGold112 on April 25, 2009 at 07:26 PM

Good fight here. From what's shown in the video it's pretty close trading hits until Bergy's last killer shot. Props to someone who doesn't fight a lot standing up for himself.

Posted by Habsmasher on April 19, 2009 at 04:26 PM

Bergeron with four strong left hands. Props for the guy to drop the gloves after concussion problems and light Gorges up. Bruins controlling their emotions well and displaying more confidence by not taking stupid penalties. Clear win for Patrice

Posted by Antipode on April 19, 2009 at 05:18 PM

Bergeron just laid him out. How embarassing must it be to get flattened by a post-concussion player who's never fought in the majors before? Very.

Posted by boldbilly on April 19, 2009 at 12:19 PM

Yes I'm a Habs fan! There are far too many Boston fans on this site to ever get a real ..or fair assesment of any fight because according to them Boston always wins. So let's score this one. 1) Obviously this was a draw from two non fighters. Extra points to Bergeron though just because of his past ( concussion ). But not enough for a win sorry. 2) Don't be harsh on Gorges he never fights either and if you replay the video you will see that Bergeron has Gorges jersey and is actually the first to drop them......so enough of this about how he is a victim here... all I see is two guys trying to get their respective teams going. Again kudos to Bergeron. 3) What's with all the classless comments from you Bruin fans regarding Montreal and Canadian people in general? 4) We're hearing a lot about cheap shots. I guess the last game of the regular season when everyone on the Bruins went after Komisarek ,Chara ,Thorton and let's not forget ....attack from behind chicken Lucic. That was most cowardly because we sat all our fighters.... I notice since George is back all is more calm where is Thorton now? This was the perfect time to show us ( "cowardiens") rabid wombats' term, who was boss. The game was in hand send the message. Where are tough guys Thorton and lucic when we dress our fighters? Where is Lucic when Laraque ran him over? Oh that's right Lucic was mixing it up with a 40 year old Matt Schneider trying to get him to go.... and when Lapierre skates forward to intervene ( Lapierre another non fighter ) Lucic the very tough guy drills him in the face with a cross check. Anyone remember Cam Neeley doing that ...............didn't think so. 5) Last point..... all I've seen in this series is an outclassed Montreal team Boston has a very good team .... but don't talk on a fighting website about class because when I see Thorton the enforcer going after O'byrne and the like..... and when I see Lucic going after Gorges and Lapierre it only proves one thing. I hope the league doesn't suspend Lucic so Laraque can finally put a beating on his chicken a$$ just fine him $$$$. Oh wait I forgot coaches orders coming in......... Lucic is to valuable , first line etec etc.......what a joke. Just keep beating on old men and not fighters.......Yup that's class...
