Other Penalties: Acciari received a minor and misconduct for instigating a fight.
Like watching a Bruin get beat
Acciari just fought an actual bear on skates. Good on him for sticking up for his teammate, but it wasn't close.
Witkowski is here to do exactly what he did... make sure the other team pays for having their heads down and throwing hands. Boston fans can't handle a guy losing and always go to Miller would've done this.. if Miller lost it would've been Chara should've fought. Witkowski has won both fights vs boston this year so let it go. He and Miller are the same size and it would be a good fight but it didn't happen so move on...
Great hit followed up by a nice bitch slapping.
Acciari got his bell rung, but as others have said, it wasnt about that. The guy CLEARLY stuck up for his teammate. B haters saying it was a clean hit need to some Boston lovin. Luke Witkowski has been a healthy scratch for 50 games this year. What does that tell us? He brought in when some muscle is needed. He hit Nordstrom blind and close to the boards, Guy is actually lucky he didnt instigate a free for all. Acciari will be just fine. me thinks he's really just trying to add to his game. When youre 6G7A in a full year, you'll need to some extras to stick around. Boston fans do love a fighter.
Not a bad fight fun to watch but witkowski definitely won this one
Witkowski is a tough dude, I saw that coming when Acciari dropped the gloves, but it wasn’t about win/lose, Acciari knew he was in for a beating, didn’t matter, his teammate got blindsided and he reacted. What surprised me most is he waits till Luke gets his hands on Noel’s jersey before even trying to grab on, just totally gave him the advantage. Aside from that, man, the hate for all things Boston is unreal. It’s a rabid sports town and as such has developed some obnoxious fans, but that’s just a reality of intense sports. There’s also a ton of really knowledgeable fans. I think it is tough being the best sports town in the country...the jealousy of others runs deep. A good problem to have for Boston I suppose.
Great, clean hit by Wit.... Acciari steps in for his team then gets destroyed. Even Boston homers can't find a way to say Acciari wins this one.
Acciari stood his ground. Lost to a bigger man. All the Bruin haters should take it easy, at least the Bruins fight. You must all be Leaf fans!
Witkowski lit dude up with a great, clean hit. That Boston player forgot he was in the NHL for a minute. Then Witkowski blew up the lefty. Not sure why people get so put out over a fight on these comment boards. That is why we are here. To watch fights. The Bruins fight or try to fight, that is what the fans pay for. Sometimes it doesn't work out.
I love all the Bruin hater pussies on here who say Acciari shouldnt have stepped up against a bigger player, and got "pummeled" (in a 5 second fight). He did what he was supposed to do, someone runs at your guy, you step in there and give it a go. You dont whine to the refs. You all need to watch Boston, and try as hard as you can to be like us, all sports, at all times. We lead the league in fighting AGAIN, even in this pretty boy Euro league its becoming. So glad i live here.
Acciar instigates an ass whipping for himself!!! And he got what he was looking for. The "B"'s thought they were getting something soft...not so much eh. Witkowski and The Undertaker (McIlrath) will be glad to accommodate any tough guy Boston sends out and it showed in the score...a beat down for the "B"s there too.
Remember only a few years ago when a hit like that was shown on the highlight reel for being a great hit. Acciari gets just as much credit from his teammates for dropping the gloves win or lose, so why do the B's fans whine and bring up Miller's name every time a B takes a beating.
Accari does a lot of things well--and he hits everything that moves. He is NOT a good fighter, even in today's league. Good on him for stepping up, but Witkowski ends this with a solid one is a fairly one-sided fight. I would imagine that Miller informed him of this fact once Noel's ears stopped ringing. THAT fight would probably have ended a bit differently.
Good on Acciari for stepping up. Wish he gave Millar the chance. With Witkowski
Definitely a cheap shot by Wikowski...
Nice hit. Not a Robert Kraft style happy ending but Acciari still got jacked.
Don't go looking for the tilt if you're gonna get pummeled
I just wish it was in boston so i could hear the silence.
I guess Witkowski doesn't mind fighting lefties. Glad Acciari got his ass kicked for trying to defend the hit. He should tell his buddy to keep his head up.
Acciari should have minded his own business. Witkowski winner hands down
17 minutes in penalties for getting your arse kicked, wanted to hear maggot-mouth edwards call that one.................. Great hit too !
Sorry Orrfourever theredbrigade is not me......Once again you are wrong...... All Witkowski here he dominates the arrogant Bruin Acciari who asks for a beating and promptly gets stomped..... scored it at 6.....lol As far as habs making playoffs or not ....jury is still out.......but we are very happy with how well our rebuild is going ...and it looks as though we are in it still with 3 games remaining pretty good for a rebuild team I would say....
Nice try Noel. Luke (half Wit) kowski gets the win... @ Redbrigade aka Bold billy Scabs ain't making the playoffs. They suck just like you... So the red brigade ain't boldbilly. Well he still sucks and the habs still ain't making the playoffs. They been rebuilding for 26 years. So yeah not bad.
Witter continues to make his presence known when he is on the ice.
acciari didn't like the hit that Witkowski threw tried to no avail to revenge it
No so great Acciari when you play with the big boys. Go fight Weegar or go have a circle jerk with the Boston fans.
Win witkowski for sure but no damage done and no real punches landed. Do love the way Miller easily throws kuffner into the boards one handed. Win witkowski and I give it a 5 I guess.
I would have liked to see Witkowski go with Miller. Anyway, clean hit and a win for Witkowski.
Total domination on a guy who pummelled a different guy the other night, easy how one person can go from hero to zero in one week.
Extremely funny how Boston announcers (Jackoff Edwards et al) respond when a Bruin gets his ass kicked. Truly hilarious.
Witkowski all the way. I hope Acciari thinks twice before he instigates a fight over a legal check. He lost the fight and 17 minutes of playing time. What a dumb ass!
JackEdwards: "Acciari loses an edge and slips",,probably
Clean hit and clean win for Witkowski. Not close, solid shots put Acciari on the ice. Give it a 6 and a no doubt win for Witkowski.
