Draw Fun 
There was a scrum behind the Bruins net. Hendricks engaged McQuaid and boldly dropped the gloves with the big Bruins defenseman. The two began to wrestle and struggle to establish a good grip. Hendricks had a great grip of Adam's right shirt sleeve and threw a couple of rights to the head. One appeared to miss and another was a weak shot that landed.

McQuaid tried to get some punches off with the right, but he was hindered by the vise-grip hold on his sleeve. Adam threw six rapid-fire right hands and missed every one. At this point McQuaid lost his balance and fell to the ice with Hendricks sprawled on top of him.

I rate this bout a draw because the fight was very short and Hendricks may have landed one or two weak blows. I don't think that is enough to give him the win. There was a lack of quality punches landed in this bout and it really never got going. This was like trying to start a fire in a wind storm. There was a brief spark but no fire took root. It was a disappointing result and a forgetable performance by both men.

Draw Fun 
Late in the first period, Tim Thomas made a save which drew a whistle as a scrum started behind the Boston net. McQuaid and Hendricks exchanged words for a while before deciding to drop the gloves. Hendricks pinned McQuaid against the glass and they wrestled until Hendricks threw two right hands, connecting on one. McQuaid started to get some room and shed his elbow pad allowing him to throw five or six rights, connecting on two. Hendricks slammed McQuaid into the glass and took him down to the ice. Hendricks missed with a right before the linesman intervened. Draw as neither combatant landed any solid punches in this bad fight.

Draw Fun 
A handful of players congregate after a whistle and Matt Hendricks gets together with Adam McQuaid. They shed the mitts and get in tight, wrestling against the glass from the get go. Hendricks throws two rights and lands one while McQuaid frees up his right and loses his elbow pad in the process. McQuaid then throws three rights, landing one while Hendricks lands a right the front of the McQuaid's helmet. McQuaid throws four more rights, landing two off Hendricks' helmet before getting turned around. Hendricks then pushes McQuaid backwards and off balance and as McQuaid falls down, Hendricks misses a right. Bad fight. Draw.

Hendricks appears to have landed the punches that counted. McQuaid let a pretty big flurry loose, but none of them seemed to land. Narrow win for Hendricks.

Garbage fight and a draw. Poor showing by McQuaid, he should have pummelled a guy like Hendricks.

No one really landed. Smart move by Hendricks going for the takedown, if he didn't McQuaid would've crushed him.

Adam McQuaid narrow win Fun 
Hendricks doesn't appear to land a single punch here. McQuaid fell down at the end of the bout, but landed a flurry of quick rights, none of which were damaging, and then he slipped and Hendricks fell on top. Watching it in slow motion, I see a narrow win for McQuaid, but wouldn't argue with a draw either.

I'm a big Bruin fan myself but no way did McQuaid win this fight it was a draw. If they had been able to get away from the boards and really get going it would've been a good fight but the fight no winner neither really got a good shot in.

It's funny you call me a "known Bruins homer" when you only joined the site 14 days ago. There is a way for the site moderators to track bias in people's reviews that every member can check, and if you have Bias, your reviews are pulled. Go back to your original account, Mike, and then come back and discuss the facts.
Also, please post an example of where you think I was biased in favor of a Bruin in a fight. I'll be waiting...
