Early in the game, Lapierre wants to spark his team (i think) and went for a huge open ice hit on Evander Kane, who didn't appreciate it and slashed him to answer the bell and got a penalty. Kane wanted a piece of Lapierre, I think we could see both guys fight later in the game. Fun

There was some historical significance to this fight. This is the second fight between heavyweights Eric Boulton and George Laraque in the NHL. They first met back on October 13th, 2000. Boulton was a rookie and playing in his first NHL season. Although originally drafted by the New York Rangers in 1994, he would bounce around in the minors for several years. The Buffalo Sabres signed him as a free agent in the summer of 1999. After spending a year with their AHL affiliate in Rochester, Boulton would make the team in the 2000-2001 season. His fight with Laraque in October was his first career NHL scrap.

By that point in time, Laraque was an established heavyweight in the league and a feared one. Big George as he was affectionately called by fans was one of the top guns in the league and was one of the toughest. Laraque had already beaten veteran enforcers like Stu Grimson, Sandy McCarthy, Rob Ray (he pounded both McCarthy and Ray), as well as other notable tough guys including Matt Johnson, Dennis Bonvie, and Brent Severyn. Laraque would have no trouble with Boulton, easily defeating him in a quick scrap where he pounded on Boulton with lefts.

Now over nine years later, the two men engage in a rematch. No longer a rookie, Boulton is a respected veteran heavyweight while Laraque is nearing the end of the line as he plays with his hometown Montreal Canadiens. They meet behind the play and have a cool squareoff. Boulton lunges in, throwing two rights and landing one. Laraque lands two weak lefts to the back of Boulton's helmet. Boulton misses with a left while Laraque lands two lefts to the side of Boulton's head. They get in tight and wrestle. Laraque tries to get off Boulton's helmet but to no avail. Laraque then throws his opponent to the ice in spectacular fashion.

This was a dull bout and a disappointment. As was often the case later in his career, Laraque seemed more interested in wrestling than trading punches. The two men landed an equal amount of blows, none of which were very effective so this is a draw. What makes this fight a bit historically significant is that it was Laraque's last career NHL fight. A little over a month after this, the Montreal Canadiens would release him from his contract and he would retire at the end of the year. It's ironic that George Laraque was Eric Boulton's first NHL opponent in a regular season game while Boulton was Laraque's last regular season opponent that he tangled with. Unfortunately the swan song fight in Laraque's strong career was a dud.

Laraque and Boulton had a disappointing contest. There was a long pose off, but not a lot of action in the aftermath once the men engaged and swapped blows. Eric landed an average right. Georges landed a partial connect, missed a punch, and landed a partial connect. He landed an average left. Boulton landed a partial connect. The men began to wrestle. The refs stopped the bout.

I rate this as a draw. Both men landed one effective blow. The rest of the punches were marginal.

Boulton lands two lefts coming in off the square off. Laraque comes back landing with two or three rights to the back of Boulton's head. Laraque then feels the need to get the take down and throws Boulton.

I don't understand this take down by Laraque at all he didn't even land any good shots to get the better of this fight. Laraque seems to be in the mind set that who ever gets the take down wins the fight.

Eric Boulton and Georges Laraque drop the gloves and squareoff. Boulton moves in and gets a grip with the left while throwing two rights, landing one. Laraque gets a grip with the right and throws two lefts, landing one. They stay in fairly close to each other and Laraque lands a left as Boulton misses a left. Laraque lands a left and they get in even closer to each other and wrestle for a short span before Boulton goes to his knees. Laraque goes to his knees too and then as Boulton tries to get up, he gets thrown down by Laraque. That ends the scrap. A short, boring, heavyweight tilt. Draw.

Georges Laraque VS Eric Boulton December 12th / 2009

In behind the play, Georges Laraque and Eric Boulton decide to drop the gloves and they square off.

Boulton then comes in close and grabs a hold of Laraque who then does the same.

Boulton lands a couple of quick punches, and then Laraque takes over and fires a few left hands. They get in close on one another and Laraque attempts to take the helmet off of the head of Boulton, but fails.

As they are wrestling around, Boulton then looks like he is about to get Laraque down, and he does, but at the last moment, Laraque throws Boulton threw the air and to the ice as well, which looked funny from the camera angle.

Final Decision,

Draw.

Behind the play, both guys shed their mitts and squared off for a good 10 seconds. Boulton started the hostilities with a quick flurry of punches, with one that landed, then Bulton got in tight, Laraque then fired three lefts with one that looked to land on Boulton's face and both guys fell on the ice. After seeing the fight from another camera angle, I change my call to a draw.

The square off when Boulton lands an early right but Laraque lands a flurry of left hands. They get in close as Boulton lands a body shot and Laraque body slams him to the ice.

Boulton and Laraque go at it here. Once they agree to drop the gloves, they square off for a little bit. Boulton seems to land one early, and then Laraque starts using his left. Laraque lands one or two, and then takes Boulton down. Draw in a short fight.

They drop the gloves behind the play and have a long square off so the camera can get there. Boulton lunges in with a big right, that didnt do much damage. Laraque grabs him and pulls him in tight, throwing one or two short lefts that didnt do much either. They wrestled and then Laraque threw Boulton down in an odd fashion.

Not much. Boulton lands one maybe two at the start, then he gets in tight. Laraque with a few lefts, maybe one or two hitting the helmet and then they go to the ice. Draw crap fight.

Draw in a terrible fight. The only reason I give it a 4 is the Boulton cartwheel takedown was the best takedown I've seen.

Zach Bogosian collides with Maxim Lapierre and then they decide to go. The gloves come off and they get a hold of each other. Lapierre's helmet and visor falls off early on. Bogosian throws three rights then, missing one as Lapierre goes down. Lapierre gets up which keeps a linesman out but then Lapierre is forced down by Bogosian. Bogosian changes hands and lands a left after Lapierre gets up. Lapierre pushes Bogosian against the boards and Bogosian shakes off his elbow pad. Bogosian lands a left then Lapierre goes down which allows Bogosian to get off the boards. Lapierre gets up and misses a right then Bogosian misses a left. Lapierre goes down yet again and Bogosian changes hands, gets his right out of his jersey, and misses a right when Lapierre gets up. The linesmen come in and stop the fight. Bogosian landed the only punches and manhandled Lapierre for the clear win. Not a good fight though.

Long and boring fight between these two. Bogosian sent the invitation to Lapierre who accepted. They wrestled a long time before Bogosian sent Lapierre down, at this time the fight seemed to be over but Lapierre got back up and the refs let them continue, Bogosian fired a few punches that land on Lapierre, Lapierre went on his knees again, got backup and fired a big right, I don,t know if it landed because the ref was blocking the view of the camera angle, and Bogosian fired a few other punches and the refs broke them up. Hugging match here.
