Was I watching that fight in slow motion? They looked tired before they even started. Weak.
Stand up boy! Boogey looked like Parros out there falling all over the place.
Quit sucking Boogards c*** Rangers homers this was the epitome of a draw. Boogard threw many but hardly landed any! Gillies hung in there throughout.
Boogaard firing away at everything. Gillies holds on for dear life. No clear winner.
Points to Gillis for not dying. That was a hell of a smart fight and he wasnt phased by many a blow.
What a crap fight. You have a dancing bear fighting a scared to death little dear. The bear swatted at him and the deer kept ducking for cover. Let the dancing bear fight some creature near his size and he will be a wall mount over their fireplace.
Boogaard wins due to his size. He still is a liability as a hockey player and as a salary cap hit.
Gillies is lucky he is not dead. Go back to the minors pal.
LOLOLOL...Gillies held on for dear LIFE!!! It was like he was being given a twirly ride by his father. Boogie threw more and connected with a couple of rock solid rights!! Boogie with the "W"
If you saw what happened to Gillies the last time these guys fought I think you'd understand why he fought like a girl. He knew he had NO chance and just didn't want his season to end early like the last time Boogaard KHTFO!
Gillies was horrible...just surviving...no heart.
Ya better check Gillie's shorts for chunx of shiit....what was he thinking???? Easy win for Boooooooooogard
Boogaard looked like he had a few beers before the game,,,Gillies did a good job not getting KO'd..win Boogaard.
Big Al, what Gillies flurry? he hardly threw a punch. Boogaard easily in this one.
Wow, Boobgaard seems to never get a flush punch in anymore with his fighting style, he used to TKO guys in his early days with the Wild, but in his last couple years in MN, and now with NY, all he seems to do is punch helmet or miss, yawn!
Who opened the gate? That was funny.
Although he clearly fought to survive, and not to win... it was strange seeing Gillies genuinely afraid. I still feel that he ultimately underestimated himself, in that, had he actually opened up, it could have been much closer than it eventually was.
hilarious, i don't know what to call that. not really a fight, more like a weird sparring session for sasquatch. boogard looks bigger every year, what is he now, 6 foot 10? 300 pounds? damn.
ok all Gillies did was hold on for dear life he's lucky he didn't get knocked outeasy win for Boogard
Clumsy Booger with the win. He is not the best. Pull him off balance and you will win. Ask BGL.
Boogy man is a scary dude. Looks like he needs to hit the cardio bike. Powering out at the end
Boogaard. Round two maybe tonight.
Boogard still not on best form. Gillies looked clueless
Boogaard should be part of some three ring circus , not in the NHL. There should be a prerequisite that you need to be able to skate the length of the ice before you can play in the NHL. This neanderthal is a joke.
W for Boogaard. Gillies didn't fight to win, he fought to not get hit (can't say I blame him) and it showed. He actually did ok, and seemed to be able to get Boogie off balance a few times but rather than taking advantage of it and swinging, preferred to tie him up. Could have been interesting to see if Gillies chose to trade blows, there were a couple of times when he appeared to have the opportunity to go left to Boogie's right and trade, but again I can understand not wanting to leave himself totally exposed like that to this guy.
Versa must have taken a few of boogeys punches, win gillies? Really? Lol gillies hung in there for dear life. Boogey looked sloppy though. Win Boogaard.
Boogaard once again dominates Gillies. Gillies should be thankful Boogaard couldn't keep his balance or this would've been much worse...
atta boy gillies,way to show up man!...boogaard brings nothing to the game of hockey.
Boogaard won this fight. Gillies hung on for dear life!!! Give Gillies credit though.
Not a bad fight for Gillies considering he was outmatched and ate a couple big rights early on. Most of his punches came from the front hand jabs. Boogaard is ridiculously strong.
Boogy gets the win.Gillies gets manhandled. I expected better.
Moral victory for Gillies--He Survived!
Gillies takes the opportunity to see if he can outlast and outsmart the behemoth on the other side. I would have loved to see him pull a quick swap and throw some southpaw bombs as boogaard tired, but it looks like he was too focused on not getting killed.
Don't forget Godard, he has dropped Boogard and Macintyre!
THAT WAS A OKAY FIGHT I WANTED DEREK TO KNOCK HIM OUT GILLIES GOT LUCKY GOD BLESS DEREK I MISS THE BIG MAN
Gilles held on and tired out Boogaard because Boogaard threw a bunch. Gilles survived but lost. Win Boogaard . 6
much better result for gillies then the last time they met,he got to skate to the box!
i dont know why boogie never took gillies helmet off first,but gillies must be happy he didnt,win derek.
Gillies held his own hung in there but got beated CLEARLY by Boogeyman. Okay tilt in my book, Boogaarf was clearly active in this one.
you are out of your mind fighting that behemoth. gillies does nothing but survive, which is indeed a victory in itself, so my hats off to him. in the end though, boogaard dominates him. versa, please, a wee bit of integrity if you could. (hoooeeeyyyy just watched their '05 fight. much better scrap, with much worse results for gillies mind you, boogaard had all day to throw that bomb. i agree with others here that have a shred of honesty - i won't knock gillies for this fight, my wife would be writing my obituary if that was me).
Gillies figured out he wasnt in Boogaards league.
boogey threw more punches...none were effective...I think the tables will turn if they fight again
Gillies gave it a good effort but Boogeyman takes the decision.
Gillies hangin on for dear life avoiding that uppercut that KO'd a few years back. Win BoogeyMan. Saw the fight live and Boogeys knuckles looked like hamburger meat in the penalty box. Gillies is lucky his helmet took those shots or it would have been the same outcome as in '05. Boogey is a monster!!!
this fight reminded me of the recent Jansen/Scott fight. this was a close fight. boogaard was in control but never totally. gillies held his own. looked like boogaard was gassed at the end, flopping around and falling down eventually. wish it went longer. W for the boogeyman, but gillies should get respect for this. rd 2 coming soon...
boogaard gets the win in this fight.
Big Al....This isn't wrestling dumb ass. You don't get points for a take down.
Looked like Gillies really pissed Boogard off with the high stick at the face off. Can't understand all the arm waving by Gillies prior to them engaging...this only telegraphed to Boogie what kind of hold he was intending. I believe Gillies is a natural south paw and surprised he didn't position himself to throw more lefts. Boogard gets the Win but good survival instincts by Gillies. He also shows how strong he is by taking Boogard down to the ice. Great job boys !
"it was strange seeing Gillies genuinely afraid." Seemingly dumb statement considering it was Gillies who instigated the fight. Boogaard won the fight, no question, but he had his hands full. Gillies gives 4 inches and 45 lbs away to the Booger and still gave him all he could handle. If Boogaard ever gets into an extended fight, he could be in trouble. He looked as if he needed oxygen after this bout. Hypothetically, if Gillies had Boogaard's size, He would be unbeatable.
Well, im with you guys in that Gillies did a fine job avoid damage. He protected well, i thought for sure when they got by the benches he was gonna throw some uppercuts. But that never materialized. ho-hum. Gotta give it to Boogy for bombing away a few times there, dont see that as oft from him as I believe we really should.
Boogaard Smash!!! Who voted Gillies?? Seriously what fight were you watching?
Ended much better for Gillies than in their 2005 fight.
The few guys that have beat Boogaard have got him to swing and miss, bend at the waist or gotten him off balance. They get inside and then land on him. Gillies got pretty close to where he wanted to be a few times, but wasn't able to sustain it or land. Boogaard did land a few and Gillies took them well. Gillies did a ok in lopsided loss. Can Gillies improve on this? They likely will have more chances down the road to fight more. For some reason, I am a little disappointed that there weren't more fireworks.
first time ive seen boogaard being more active than his opponent.straight from the start and it think that might have surprised gillies.win boogaard
Gillies looked like he had a tiger by the tail. He fought Boogaard like a woman would have fought him. Grab the shirt for dear life and hold on and swing.
Gillies ate Boogaards fist numerous times. Give Gillies credit for hanging in. Pretty stupid though. Gillies avoided the Boogey man the rest of the game.
Boogaard again almost kills Gillies ... but not as bad as their last fight.
Boogaard pussed out of steam.
Boogard's just an animal. Clear W for the Boogie Man
Welcome to the N>H>L> Gillies.Welcome to Boogaards world!Exposed as an AHL enforce,r Gillies welcome to the land of the giants as you get your Ass handed to you by the the beast of the east.Next !
Like i said in the macintyre fight, Boogard, Scott and Macintyre need to fight each other eventually, watching them fight all these midgets is a joke.
Good fight for Gillies! I'm surprised he was able to trade with Boogaard, kind of got rag-dolled though.
no contest really...win Boo!
Good to see Gillies not shy away from the big guy after being KO'd the last time they fought. Gillies is a gamer. He's no joke.
Gillies fared a little better than last time, he stayed conscious.
Boogard is just too big to allow him to start throwing haymakers. Gillies stood no chance.
boogard is just rockin all these little dudes he needs more of a challange with the bigger guys close to his size
Boogaard was dominant in this scrap. R.I.P. Boogeyman.
Great to see Gillies show up
Much respect for Gillies. Just like Janssen v Scott, MacIntyre v Orr. Big Heart versus big reach.
Gilles git TOTALLY OWNED AND TOTALLY EMBARRASSED. He looked like a pussy get his ass kicked and the shit beat out of him by the Boogeyman. It is a shame that Boogaard is playing for the hapless no talent Rangers, who do not deserve him. The gutless Rangers try and buy a reputation, but nobody really associates Boogaard with the Rangers...it just ain't right.
total domination, GIllies = Hold and pray
Win for the Boogey man. Props to Gillies for standing up so long although he was definitely out of his league, had a couple good chances but couldn't pull through. Don't see many fights that are more than a tug-fest. Good scrap guys!
Gillies hung in there. Win Boogaard.
Boogaard gets the majority of the punches in, Gillies held his own though not like the first time they fought lol
Boogaard handed the beating
okay fight draw
Rangers fans will vote just to save face LOL!!! This idiots nothing more than an overgrown single celled tard, he couldn't grab his ass with both hands.
Gillies should have done more at the end, but i still consider it his win!
OMG.Did anybody accyually watch the fight. Hey jackasses its not how many punches you throw that wins a fight its how many land. Every one of Boogaards except for 2 hit Gillies helmet or body. Whatever punches Gilles got to throw about 50% landed. Gillies won this fight hands down. Come on people I thought you were better hockey fans than that. NOT HOW MANY PUNCHES BUT PUNCHES LANDED! I know there are not alt of Islander fans out there but make the right pick.
I thought Gillies earned the win with his flurry about 3/4 of the way through the fight. He also got the takedown... Gillies in a tight one!!!
Back in action Trev, Good bout. He landed pillows. 5 years of redemption. Appy was yelling at the screen.
Gillies is the man, no fear at all in that guy, takes on that freak, tosses him around like a bitch, lands a few good ones, go gillies!
Boogaard is such a fucking joke. He is clumsy and has no balance. I don't know why he even carries a hockey stick let alone wear gloves and a helmet. Just leave them on the bench. What a goofball.
Clear win for the Boogeyman, but I disagree with the folks who say this was "lopsided" or "a domination." It definitely was neither one. There was no damage done to either player, except perhaps to Boogaard's hands from the shots on Gillies' helmet. Gillies, may have gotten out-pointed, but I think he looked a lot better holding his own against Boogaard, than Boogard did in failing to do any damage to Gillies. One expects a gorilla with Boogie's size and reach advantage to pummel a smaller guy like Gillies with a lopsided ratio of damaging long-range punches. All the bigger guy has to do is grab some jersey, stay out of range and pick his shots. Boogaard got more shots in, but he didn't land any damaging bombs. Gillies, on the other hand impressed me with the way he out-muscled and out-wrestled his bigger opponent, particularly towards the end of the tilt. Boogaard may have edged out Gillies in the punches-thrown department, but this was not a very impressive win for him. After this mix, I think Gillies is going to have a lot more confidence the next time these guys square off.
Boo wins a 3. Gillies must have forget the fight on '05
Boogaard is just a waste of a spot on the bench and salary. Gillies is a waste and the biggest clown on the worst circus in the NHL. Both of these guys are minor leaguers, period. Neither can actually play. Oh wait, the Islanders are a minor league team these days, aren't they? Boogaard with a very sloppy win.
gillies- Lots of pre fight dancing for not throwing many blows.
about what you would expect in this one, gilles made it out alive
Total mismatch,...the only thing saving Gillies from destruction was Boogaard missing so many. Don't bother with a re-match.
Gillies pretty much just hung on for the ride. And I have to disagree Gillies, despite being knocked out, did much more in the last fight with Boogie. He landed a bunch of punches last time and it was a pretty even fight until boogie got him on the button. Gillies did nothing in this fight but head down and hold on.
Boogaard looked tired, but still controlled the entire fight.
Boogie with the win.Looks like Gillies had the 05' scrap in mind...at least what he remembers.I give anybody credit for fighting Boogard.Win or lose...even an Icelander...easy to say as a spectator he should have opened up more...F that...I'd be happy making it to the box on my own two skates!He's a monster....
Gillies didn't even attempt to fight. His whole goal was to not get killed.
BIG BOMBS by Boogaard but I think he may have been drunk he could barely stay on his feet
I wonder if Boogaard said something to him like.. You remember how I knocked you out in 2005? And Gillies said no, got pissed and tried to go again... And of course he wouldn't remember, I don't think Gillies woke up for two weeks.
At least The boogey man didn't knock him out this time!!!! Someone get the BOOGEYMAN!!!!!! :)
Boogey had the better of Gillies there, but Gillies is creeping up my favourites table. Nice to see Gillies getting more ice time under the new mangement :)
win Boogeyman...big balls by the The Best Stache rematching him and fighting him Southie...power on power
Gillies was not scared of Boogaard. If he was scared they would not have fought. But once he was getting manhandled, he was ducking a dodging but that doesnt make him scared. I have respect for anyone who drops the gloves with the Boogeyman. But Boogey dominated from beginning to end. And for you idiots that think Gillies one because Boogaard fell at the end: Gillies could have picked him up and bodyslammed Boogaard but this is fighting not wrestling. And Boogaard fell on his own from sheer exhaustion.
Gillies is a turd
Boogaard on offense and Gillies on Defense. Give credit for Gillies, he took some shots, but hung in there. Nice tilt- All Boogaard.
It looked like Gillies was waiting for Boogy to tire himself out and come on late but that never happened. Dominating win for Boogard.
boogaard wins but points to gilles for hanging on to that death ride.
Gillies game, but Boogieman is a monster.
Boogeyman but wow is gillies strong.
Sometimes i wonder where people come up with this stuff. I give Gillies ALOT of credit for even stepping up with the Boogeyman, however he was dominated the whole fight. He barely got anything going at all. He did prove he's got alot of strength though. I give him props but he had no chance. As for all the people who say if Gillies had Boogaards size he would of won, Thats ridiculous. A. he doesn't and B. he doesn't win against Heavyweights his own size. He's not quite a Heavyweight fighter. He's a very solid Middleweight. He would get dropped against the likes of Colton Orr
Boogaard controlled most of the fight. Landed the best two punches of the fight.
How does Boogaard have the majority of the votes!?! Yes he landed more punches put they all were shots to the helmet of Gillies or weak body punches after being pushed up against the boards! Gillies actually landed two good punches one of which knocked Boogaard's helmet off! As well Gillies rag dolled Boogaard at the end of the fight which you never see!
Boog hit nothing but helmet the whole fight .
