Other Penalties: Carkner received a misconduct.
Carkner ended up with a HUGE mouse over his left eye, and a nasty gash, so Boog-boy connected with right. +1 Boogy. Boogard ended up with a broken nose, and Carkner clearly connected with that big right. +1 Carkner. Carkner executes a hug-and-roll, cowers in tight, and then kung fu's Boogy down like a puss. -1 Carkner -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Boog-man 1 Carkey 0 Win Boogs
Not sure why Carkner gets the win here. They both threw 1 punch then Carkner wrestles Boogaard to the ice. Draw.
idiots giving it to Carkner for the take-down. THIS IS NOT WRESTLING! Why chase a guy down to show that your only offense is a wrestling move to the ice. Draw!!!!! And, dishonorable mention for Carkner for a BS fight.
Lottery punch for Carkner. But hey Matt, you'll never get any respect in this league acting like that after a fight. You're an idiot !
Hard to believe that this will be his last fight ever. RIP Boogey Man
enough with this take down BS. i wouldnt want o be carkner next time they meet. Boogyman is unmotivated most of the time, hopefully that wakes him up
Carkner landed the best punch but went for the hold and takedown. I understand he is fighting a giant, but he went looking for it. Draw...
Yeah I cant real score this a win for Carkner. They both connected with heavy rights, boogie was stunned no doubt and Carkner was cut. I noticed Crakner wanted absolutely nothing to do With Boogard after that exchange, going for the takedown as soon as they got to the boards. Good Draw because if it went any longer I think Crakner would have been in serious trouble.
Boogaard is my favorite fighter right now, and an amazing one at that. But I have to hand it to Carkner - not an easy win, but he pulled it off. Bravo.
one punch a piece, you don't get a win for a take down. Carkner got a lucky punch in, good thing he stung Boogaard or he would be dead. What's with the BS after!? I guess Carkner is usually on the receiving end (IE getting the s$%T knocked out of him by Orr) either that or he has been listening to hs bitch Neil!!
I would have given the edge to Carkner if this fight went a little longer. Unfortunately he went into turtle mode after landing on Boogaard's nose.
3 punches for Boogaard 1 cut Crkner.....2 punches for Cerkner...1 a bomb...takedown as always, meaningless...Draw
Carkner was aggressor and rushed Boo. He got one lucky glancing punch which caught his nose and then some softy punches. Tried to pull helmet off then got scared and dumped Boo on the ground. Wimpy fight ending in a draw.
Take downs mean your afraid to fight. Carkner landed one punch then took boogie down with a judo move. What a puss. Hockey isn't Judo. Take downs should count against a hockey fighter. Not looked at as a "good move". Unless one is looking to get out of the fight and into the much safer penalty box. Boogie also lands one punch. Looked like a DRAW to me. The way the Carkner fans are talking you would think this was a one sided bout. What ever.
R.I.P. Boogie man
They both landed a couple of shots. Carkner holds on for dear life. DRAW.
Boogard great intimidating player,awesome check still think Carkner was okay but Boogard kept it close ......
Win for Carkner for landing that bomb on boogie's schnoz and taking him down. That said, I'm not sure what he was thinking talking that smackdaddy after? There's still two more games between the rangers and sens this season, aka two more games where the Boogeyman is gunna be patrolling the ice looking to put his fist through Carkner's jaw
Holy Crap! Honestly you'd think a site called hockeyfights would have a little bit more of intelligent viewers. This place is filled with homers or people that need lasik. Your decisive wins are usually always draws. And to the guy saying people are worshiping Boogaard, your a moron. Carkner got ONE good shot in, the same exact time Boogaard got a good shot in, so what if it hurt Boogaard, Carkner immediately hugged him and made sure he couldn't throw anymore. Watch the video again, this time with your glasses on. Point is Boogaard is not unbeatable, but it's pretty lame when people step up to him and then just try throw a few punches and then hang on for dear life. Like someone else said, if your gonna do that, don't fight at all. Watch all of his videos this season and say that isn't true for all his fights, with the exception of Big Mac from the Oilers maybe! Thank god this voting doesn't count for shite
If ever a next round was in order, this is it. Now that they have a feel for each other's tactics and are about equal in strength, we hopefully will see who is the smarter fighter next time out. Carkner had the stronger hit, but Boog had a couple more of the lesser variety. Why did Carkner pull Boog down if Cark was not hurt? I think if Carkner would have kept Boog up and allowed the fight to continue he may have been able to post a clear victory, but his survival mode contrived before the fight betrayed him but then only they know what they are thinking so we must wait for the next round. Not enough punches to give more than a draw as the take down off-set any edge.
Both fighters it turns out were cut.
Carkner its a hockey fight not a wrestling match!!
I really can't stand how anytime somebody doesn't get killed going up against one of the top 5 fighters in the league, people treat it as f they won. Kinda like the foolish "You have to clearly beat the champ to take his belt" fallacy in boxing. Both guys landed big rights at the same exact time. Both guys cut each other with that punch. One of those guys wanted nothing to do with fighting as soon as that happened. For the people saying Boogaard was hurt by it (and he definitely was startled for a second) , it was Carkner who immediately held on for dear life, and shot the takedown. Now honestly, if this fight was 2 random guys from AHL, how would you score it? Just because Carkner was supposed to get lit up and didn't, does not mean he won the fight. Nobody should be penalized because they are the better fighter going into the fight. Mike Tyson, in his prime, was not forced to start every round behind 10-9 on the judges scorecard because he was so much better then his opponents. And to be honest, even if Matt did win, he immediately undid whatever positives he would have gained from it, with his "Holy shit I actually hit him, I better take him down and get the hell outta here right away!!" desperation take down. Especially, when he was stupid enough to give an interview beforehand stating his game plan was to just throw a punch and take him down and ground and pound or choke him, lol. What's the point? You actually harm your rep around the league, AND to your own team, with that mentality.
After watching this a number of times i would give this a draw!Both players landed one each and both players cut.Then a hugfest and a tackle by Carkner!Icannot see how anyone except a Homer could vote for either in this tilt!
Ha, 4 million dollar per year boogs get beat by one punch. It's obvious it did damage if he went to the locker room. It's like every time Derek get's popped in the mush by someone with strength these days he get's hurt in some way, he doesn't have the chin or steel much like many guys, he used to though, just glad he isn't on the Wild anymore, he does nothing to help the team win, but can fight like a madman. Too bad his fights are now more defensive versus TKO style like they used to be in his early days in MN. Oh well....
Carkner lands the solid right on the Boogster. I don't come on here too often, but I do notice the same usernames for every bout when I do. Some of you that feel the need to post for every fight really need to get a life.
Carkner landed a bomb and then bailed out by wrestling Boogard down. Didn't like the judo flip, but win Carkner.
Broke Boog's nose right off the bat, fight over...Matt won that one but remember that anybody can one shot a guy, let's see the rematch later on this season, good idea to stay in tght with this monster..
DB quit when his beak was broken, period.
Carkner's a POS, but he made Boogaard do a Marcia Brady imitation, "Oh my nose!!"
watched it 3 more times and carkner did land a really hard right punch to daze boogaard vs boogaard landing one punch.......but carkners punch did way more damage......win carkner.
real fight, but why did Carkner get a misconduct, really? Kinda close, but win by Carkner
Carkner lands the only solid punch and gets the win.
Takedown doesn't bring you win. I wasn't sure but last camera showed it clearly: Carkner's punch landed and hurt. Win Carkner
Who is the marketing rep at Bulk Barn that thought it would be a good idea to make a sign out of Light Bright?
WIn Carkner but only by a nose !
landed the bomb, got scared and went for the take down, lazy win
Great hit by Boogaard, followed by a quick bout, ironically in front of a ''Bulk'' sign, in which Carkner employs the patented... ...''quit while you're ahead (alive)''... strategy. To Carkner's credit, Boogaard still seemed a little stunned by that big shot, even as he headed off of the ice. ''On the rare occasion'' that Boogaard gets wobbled, he usually looks alot like a falling Klitchko brother... ''on the rare occasion'' that one of them goes timber. Flicking blood !!!??? WTF???
wow,that right stunned boogaard...edge carkner...5
Carkner with the standing KO punch!!! How anyone can score this for Boogieman is beyond me!?!? Carkner rocked him with a right hand on THE BUTTON that staggered Booggaard and then followed it up with a nice takedown. Impressive win for Matt Carkner.
Ranger announcers are such Homies....Jerkoff says it was a good solid hit by Boogard, meanwhile the defenseman did not have the puck nor did he see Boogard coming...Carkner did the right thing going after Boogie and rocked him with that punch..boogie was hurt and could not regain any advantage...I hate the ranger announcers....
Takedowns don't win fights?!?!?!? Give me a break. In a hockey fight a takedown /throwdown like Carkner threw on the big guy hurt just as much or more than a solid punch to the noggin. There isn't any give on the ice when you hit the ice. Solid win for Carkner!
One punch or 500 punches, it does not matter, Carkner beat Boogie.
Maybe the people voting for Boogaard didn't even watch the video.
Booger is a horrible fighter. Turn him and he is done. Slight edge to Carkner, but nonetheless, a win.
Anybody still want to argue who won this fight, now that Boogaard is out indefinitely with Post Concussion Syndrome? Carkner wins the battle and the war. Looks good on Boogaard, one shot to the bugle and out indefinitely. Now if somebody would just do the same to Avery.
Carkner with the obvious win.
Win Carkner due to that he seems to have broken Boogeys nose and the take down. But cheap fighting from Matts side, the tripping take down and after it seems like he still is tounting Boogey when hes on top of him. Have some respect for the code you rat! Not to be mention the blood flickering..... Im looking forward to the next time these Big boys meet. Will be interesting to see Boogeymans response.
boogie man got kinda angry i think and didn't fight as well as usual. the big right hurt the big man. haven't seen him lose many fights but he lost this one
Just goes to show that no one in the NHL is unbeatable. Carkner landed a hell of a blow on Boogie.... he may have broken his nose but it didn't even buckle his legs.... think that if the fight went longer, Carkner may have been in trouble but we'll never know..... Some of the commenting on here is unbeleivable. People don't look at anything objectively...
Carekner landed 3-4 shots, Boogeyman landed one but not good hit really. Carkners all punches were good ones, one very good right-hand which stunned Boogaard. CLEAR WIN Carkner. I likes a lot of Boogaard but he got beated here.
This was a close fight, both got opened up, Carkner with a cut and Boogie with a broken nose. Very slight edge to Carkner.If nothing else I think he felt he won the fight. This shows that Boogie can be hit and hurt, after getting bloodied by King last year, Boogie has not been as dominant as he once was. Brashear was once top dog and after getting clocked a couple of times he faded away. It happens to all of them.
If there is a rematch Carkner's career is over. Square up toe to toe next time Avery, I mean Carkner.
Carkner rocked the Boogie man with that bomb. Boogard just couldnt come back. Prolly couldnt see out those watery eyes. W Carkner.
Carkner wins this one but I think it's really funny how when Carkner realized he landed ONE good punch and then he immediately take him down because he knew if he continue fight, he'll get killed.
Oh man. Carkner with the full body weight shifting sledgehammer of a right staggers and stuns the boogeyman. then Carkner just flips him on his back for an overall TKO.
Derek Boogeyman had his nose broken by Carkner in this fight.. He runs off the ice right away... Carkner with a close win... Not the ceap puss puss everyone says he is.. He just beat the toughest guy in the league! Not bad for a puss puss.
Carkner did what he had to do to beat this monster! Can't wait for round 2..
Boogard fights a player his size and got his face busted..He will be out for weeks..Good job Carkner
Quick fight... Looked like Carckner connected right on the chicklets of Boogie ! I think that was more trash talking at the end than sending their warmest regards... One bomb and a take-down for Carkner gives him the edge.
Win Carkner with the big punch to the nose.
Hi all, I enjoy the site but don't often post. I've got to say I've done a lot of Judo in my time and that's the best uchimata (inner thigh) throw I've ever seen on ice. Crakner even managed to leave the ice at one point do get more power into it. Punches aside that probably hurt Boogaard as much as the one he took on the snooze. That was a heavy landing on his shoulder, still I'm sure he'll make up for it the meet next time they meet.
in a short scrap but good combatants fighting like carkner and boogaard makes a good match but carkner got the better hits and take down giving him the win
Carkner with the edge
Boyh landed big right hands at the same time but Carkner's shot seem to do the most damage although he was cut by Big B. I think Carkner busted Boogaard's nose and took this one.
Carkner suprised the Boogyman with a good right. Kudos to Carkner for going after him. Boogaard really got rocked, he never came back after the fight.
the Boogeyman's last bout
carkner win, boogaard never came back into the game either, apparently a broekn nose, the video link on the first page shows the angles better.
seriously anyone here pissing on carkners parade here is an idiot. bigjohnson are you serious with that epic fail of a ramble? check out the 18 second mark where boogy has a fist cocked and doesnt throw, (why? cos he is done). he grabs carkners collar and they both go down. boogy wanted no more after having his mouth caved in. ye carkner loses 9/10 against boogy but here he kills him. ranger fans get real. for the record i think both teams are a joke. one has avery and glen sather. the other has chris neil.
Carkner proves once again the only way to fight Derek is fight to win! Carkner seems to have hurt DB with his right although Boogy's punch was not half bad either win Carkner
Boogeyman was hurt more than Carkner without a doubt and was knocked out of the game. Broken nose > cut when it keeps you out of the line-up.
carkner lands a thor-hammer to a seemingly unsuspecting boogaard, and then sadly, yet kind of smartly, takes the beast down before he can exact mortal revenge. must've got him good, seemed like carkner was making sure he was okay at the end. (or was he trash-talking...) carkner's right hand takes the victory, his takedown takes a point off. 6.
cark rocked him with a solid right ..stunned the Booger
It appears that Boogey's grill got crunched because he was bloodied and had to go off for repairs. The big flap immediately after the fight was that Carkner skated by the Rangers bench and allegedly flicked blood at the players. He wasn't saying hello to them, that's for sure. The bigger question for me is how on earth did the Sens blow this one by coughing up three unanswered goals in the third?
I wish people would quit worshiping that douche Boogaard. Glad to see him get his bell rung. Win Carkner.
Carkner lands the bomb from out of nowhere and proves once again that the Boogeyman is a myth!!!
gave carkner the win in this fight.
big punch to the bigger man, easy win Carkner. Skip the leg sweep flip next time please!!
What a shot by Carkner. Loved to see Boogaard get stunned like that.
While I enjoy watching Orr KO Carkner every time the Leafs play the Senators, Carkner obviously gets the win here. Boogaard actually fights someone that's almost as tall as him and gets fed. Usually, he chooses to fight guys half a foot or more shorter than him. Carkner with the easy win....
Carkner for the bomb then the sucession of lefts. And Boogey went for the tie-up just as much as Carkner, he didnt want it to go on either.
Carkner landed one bomb early. Boogaard hung on for life.
carkner clearly hurt the boogeyman. anythign but a win for carkner is ridiculous. boogaard didnt want to seperate at the end, carkner may have lucked out with that early shot but boogaard was not wanting more.
RIP Boogie. A very sad final moment on the ice.
Carnker stung the Boogie Man
Carkner with the win for breaking Boogaard's nose. Yes that's right -he broke Boogaard's nose with that thunder punch.
Carkner wins with big right and take down
WIN Carkner. He clearly hurt Boogaard with that big right. The Boogeyman's last shift ever. RIP Derek Boogaard.
One Boogaard bomb vs. three Carkner bombs plus a take-down? Please. Anyone who said Boogaard won that one is a Rangers fan.
Carkner lands a good one, that stuns Boogey and ended up breaking his nose! Win Carkner! Boogy still hasn't played a game since having headache simptomes.
Carkner handled the size nicely and gets a takedown. Boogaard landed a bomb. But slight edge to Carkner
a couple big blows, carkner landed a beauty and had the take down. even, but decision carkner
Whats the difference between a street brawler and a boxer? One punch. It doesn't matter if he pulls the punch out of his back side. Carkner hurt Boogaard with that punch. Boogaard landed on Carkner, but didn't hurt him as badly. Win Carkner. If they fight 10 times, I think Boogaard likely wins 8 or 9 but not this time.
Boogie gets his face/nose busted up and re-injures his shoulder. Riding the pine now in the pressbox. So much for the ' champ '.
Carkner big win. Big bomb to the schnozz. Carkner's helmet seems to have opened up a cut.
It only takes 1 big punch
Looks like Carkner catches Boogard's nose with that big shot, Boogard landed a couple nice shots. Certainly not one-sided but a win for Carkner.
What a punch / huge takedown by Carks, one of my favorites
FOW Massiver haymakers both way, a nice slam, blood both ways . . .one of the few times I ve seen Boogy loose. . .all around great.
two real huge guy's,, but Carkner's punches also very solid on impact. Boogard has a broken nose ?...
Boogie throws Carkner around and lands three bombs and gashes above Carkner's eye. Carkner catches Boogaard with one on Boogaard's nose. Carkner has Boogaard stunned but decides to puss out and takes him down. (not that I blame him)
Carkner flicked blood at Rangers bench afterwards, Classy.
stop the hugging already!!!! Don't fight if you're scared and not man enough.
Win Boogaard. Carkner hits him from behind, jumps him and then hangs on for dear life. Don't fight if you don't want to fight. That didn't show courage or toughness only abject fear. The guy is a joke.
draw.. carkner is a dousch.. lands one punch then tackles the guy? he'll get knocked out soon enough.
glad to see Carkner got the 10 mins misconduct. his high stick to the back of the head was uncalled for.
Started like it would be awesome. Carkner then just gave Boogy a bear-hug.
BooGY MAN WIN
ugly takedown move by Carkner draw
That was a hell of a shot by carkner. he should get points from winning for that. im sick of ignorant people giving the win or points to people for takedowns. he won cause the punch not the f*cking takedown!
Carkner landed one shot then bailed on the fight. Bitch move. He may have had the W if he didn't bail, but no wait to tell. Draw. Who are you yo-yo's giving Cark the W? He bailed like a little punk! I can't wait to see the Boogeyman put this clown to sleep next time they play.
I'm giving this a draw, Why? Beacuse Carkner ended this early with the take down, Bogey got a couple early shots, Carkner replied with a stinger then opted out. DRAW in my eyes.
Draw if anything. Carkner seems to be losing his mind from getting knocked out by Orr too many times. Each landed blows. They were both hurt and Boogie was ready to continue when Carkner held on and took him to the ice. What's he thinking flicking his blood? Can't wait for the rematch.
close fight. boogaard landed two, carkner with one solid blow. called it a draw
Carkner ... easily.
Win for Carkner based on damage done (broken nose for Boogie versus a cut for Carkner) and for landing a cleaner punch, but taking your opponent down early in a fight like that is a cheap move. I have to judge the fight by what happened in the actual fight, and what happened was Carkner's punch did more damage. Still, Carkner, as an experienced fighter, has to give his opponent the respect of being able to battle back in a fight. And trying to land one punch and then going for the take-down is not "strategy," it is cowardly, and I think the enforcers in the NHL would agree. Despite all of this, win for Carkner in this fight.
edge carkner, seems the stratagy with boogy is to get in close quick before you get bombed, the rematch should be interesting
Boogaards last fight in the nhl...RIP
Nice RT by Carkner
Carkner gets the win here no question! Boogie didn't want to show his face lol
Where are all the Leaf fans saying Carkner picks his spots? All you dummies trying watching the video again. Carkner pops him with the right then a few short lefts. Boogerman grabs him so he doesnt get hit, and wraps his left arm around Carkner. Carkner with the huge win, haters. How has Orr doen this year? Isn't he like 2-5 or something?
Carkner wins, pure and simple. He may not be long for this world on another go-round, but Boogaard got beat this time.
Win Carkner, over the guy so many on this site thought to be invincible! You just never know what can happen from game to game, shift to shift!
Carkner is starting to show his true colours and they ain't pritty.........He's a LOW LIFE!!!!!!! Good punch tho!!!
That was a big shot Carkner landed, the msg announcers remind me of watching a boxer you have money on you only see the shots your guy lands. Boogard got the snot beat out of him and i didn't see any flicking at the bench he was ust letting them know Boogard just got beat down. The Rangers have no rrom to complain about anything as long as they have Avery on the bench
Carkner landed the better bomb.Then decided he was happy with that and grabbed tight for a pulldown.Quit while you're ahead survival strategy.Wish it would have kept going.Really stunned Boog but he looked like he was ready to keep throwing...should be awesome next time these to go....
win Boogeyman..just kidding....Carkner hurting Boogey with that shot...........so,i guess he didnt get lucky with Orr last year..well,kinda
Carkner with the decisive win here.
The one shot by Carkner wins it - Though lucky for him he went to the "hug" - Watch out for the rematch in later games...you pissed off the Boogyman and you will pay
Carkners big punch ended this one as Boogard was dazed and concussed and was trying to survive after that one landed. Carkner did not need to throw him down on his shoulder at that point, which caused a shoulder injury as well. Rest in Peace boogey man, you'll be missed.
Boogy got a broken nose, Carkner got his hepatitis blood and flicked it on the who cares if it hit Avery he already has Hep c.
Carkner with the W.
Each guy lands one big shot. Boogie's shot cuts Carkner over his eye but Carkner's shot catches Boogie flush on the nose (the way Boogie reacted, I bet it is broken). Gotta give the win to Carkner for landing the better shot. You can obviously see that Boogie was hurt by the way he immediately went to the locker room.
Carkner lands a bomb that hurt Boogy and then slams him to the ice with the takedown. I'm not sure how anyone really thinks Boogy won this one?
Carkner drops him!!!!!!!
carkner win this fight by hair
Carkner with the win. He broke boogies nose. Huge props to boogie for wanting to keep fighting and not going for the pussy take down. Huge anti-props to carkner for doing the pussy take down, chirping a guy on the ground, and flicking blood on the bench. Next time they fight, i hope carkner loses a few teeth.
The boogeyman handled Carkner in this lackluster scrap.
Carkner was getting thumped,....goes for his only option - the bail-out takedown.
Boogy landed more punches and didn't go for the wussy take-down. Decision to him given those factors.
Boogey broke his nose in this one. Called it a draw though.
Draw, boogaard a couple more punches but that bomb by Carkner hurt the Boogeyman. Smart job by Carkner, tie him up or get killed.
