Adam McQuaid clear win Fun

Brian Boyle takes a shot after the whistle which hits Adam McQuaid. McQuaid is angered by it and goes right after Boyle. The gloves come off and they grab on with the left hand. Boyle misses a right and McQuaid throws two rights back, landing one. They pause and then McQuaid misses a right before Boyle misses a right. McQuaid lands a right and then Boyle misses a right as he lowers his head. McQuaid misses a right, Boyle misses a right, and then McQuaid lands a right to the body. Boyle misses a right as McQuaid lands a right and McQuaid misses a follow up right. Boyle misses a right and McQuaid a right after, then misses a right as Boyle misses a right. McQuaid misses two rights and then pauses to shake his elbow pad off. McQuaid throws four rights and lands two, one of them to the body as Boyle keeps his head low. Boyle misses two rights and then McQuaid throws three rights, landing one as Boyle's helmet comes off. Boyle's head remains low and McQuaid throws two rights and lands one, then the linesmen step in. Win to McQuaid. He was more active and landed more and better punches. Boyle was pretty conservative and tentative, despite holding the size advantage over McQuaid. Fairly boring fight in my book, not many punches landed and not much landing too well.

Brian Boyle takes a slapshot into Adam McQuaid's foot. McQuaid goes up and gives Boyle a shove and they drop the gloves. McQuaid lands the first punch and then throws another which hits Boyle's shoulder. McQuaid throws another which Boyle counters before getting hit again by McQuaid. They exchange a punch each both missing. Boyle throws a right which hits McQuaid's shoulder. McQuaid hits Boyle in the ribs and then they simultaneously throw rights, Boyle's missing. McQuaid's connecting well. McQuaid throws another which misses before Boyle throws one which hits the shoulder of McQuaid, McQuaid throws another which connects. Boyle throws a body shot before McQuaid tags him again over the top. McQuaid threw to the gut, threw his elbow pad off before going under and over twice. Boyle let off a weak right and a body blow before McQuaid fires two overhands back at him, one knocking the helmet off Boyle. McQuaid throws another to the forehead of the downward looking Boyle before waiting a while and then doing them same again. The linesmen get in between them before McQuaid throws a weak right but pulls back at the last second before proceeding to say something probably along the lines of good scrap to Boyle.

Clear win McQuaid as he controlled the fight and landed the better punches.

Adam McQuaid narrow win Fun

Brian Boyle is carrying the puck over the Boston line and just as the whistle blows due to an offside call, Boyle snaps a shot that catches defenseman Adam McQuaid right in the mid-section.

McQuaid immediately skates toward Boyle, who puts his hands in the air and claims his case but McQuaid doesn't want to talk and sheds the mitts, provoking Boyle to do the same near the faceoff circle.

They grab on and at first, it looked as though Boyle would be able to use his size to hold him off but eventually McQuaid finds his range and lands a couple of good rights, as Boyle comes back with a few weak attempts to back him off.

McQuaid gets him up near the boards and throws an over/under combination, before Boyle locks him out and waits for the stripes, as they seperate on their own.

Narrow win McQuaid but if it would have continued, would have been a lot worse

McQuaid Vs. Boyle

The Rangers are bringing the puck into the Boston zone and the whistle blows on the delayed offside, Boyle proceeds to shoot the puck anyhow into the shin of McQuaid and he doesn't like this. McQuaid begins the pushing and shoving with Boyle as it quickly escalates while both guys drop the gloves and grab onto each other in the Bruins zone. McQuaid fires off the first four right hands, none of which appear to connect as Boyle also misses with a right hand. Both McQuaid and Boyle then exchange two simultaneous right hands with neither connecting before they both connect with a right hand. McQuaid will then connect with another right hand as both fighters then once again miss with two more right hands. McQuaid then shakes off the right elbow pad and lands a right to the mid section of Boyle before McQuaid lands two more short right hands that knock the helmet off of Boyle. The then wrestle up against the glass where McQuaid throws one more right that misses as the refs step in and separate them.

Edge McQuaid. More activity and punches landed.

McQuaid handled Boyle with ease. Adam missed a few punches and landed a partial connect. He missed a right. Brian missed a few blows and landed a decent right. He missed a shot. McQuaid landed a body punch and a solid shot. He missed a blow and landed an average punch. He missed a shot. Boyle missed a few punches. Adam missed a punch, landed a body blow, and landed a decent shot. He missed a punch, landed an average blow, and landed a light shot. He landed a decent punch. Boyle was clinching and the refs stopped the fight.

I rate this as a clear win for McQuaid. He landed many more punches. Not all the blows were real effective, but he landed with enough pop at times to win the bout by a comfortable margin.

Fairly even fight here but McQuaid landed a big shot and then Boyle covered up and just tried to avoid punishment. McQuaid got more active later on when Boyle tired and was on the defensive. Clear win McQuaid.

Boyle takes a late shot after the whistle, and it hits Adam,he takes exception and goes after Boyle. Not much landed, biggest punches by Adam, Boyle holding on waiting for refs at the end. Good showing by Adam against a much bigger opponent.

Boyle took a late shot after the whistle and it hit McQuaid. Not on purpose, of course, but McQuaid took exception and went after Boyle. McQuaid got in some punches and Boyle appeared to throw a couple, but this fight was a snoozer. McQuaid was much more active than Boyle, so he gets the clear win here.

By the boards, a fight that saw McQuaid land 4 facialpunches + 1 short-traveled facialpunch. Boyle only got to land 1 facialpunch + 1 bodypunch (but bodypunches are never counted by me unless they're the type landed by Colton Orr on John Scott, the other night). Boyle mostly hung on during this clear win by McQuaid.

This isn't surprising because Boyle is predictably & simply one of the worse fighters as a big guy.

Win McQuaid. He landed a nice shot to start the fight and slipped in a couple more as Boyle held on for dear life like a big pussy. He managed to turn it into a shitty fight and contain McQuaid enough to prevent getting lit up but McQuaid did score enough to take the Win. Boyle still with a glove on as the fight his broken up. What a fucking sissy. I bet he thinks twice before letting his shot go the next time a play is whistled offside though. haha. Nice message by McQuaid and a great call by the offical to give him a rough instead of an instigator or a package when Boyle was asking for it by shooting the puck after the whistle. Win McQuaid.

McQuaid controlled pretty much the whole fight. Throwing decent rights and some good body shots as well. Boyle being 6"7 you'd expect him to do a bit better since McQuaid is quite a bit shorter than him. Anyway, Boyle tried to throw a few but none barely landed. Clear win McQuaid in this one.

No surprise here to see the giant blueskirt pussy Boyle get beat again. McQuaid obviously landed more and better than Boyle, earning the clear win. Boyle seriously needs to keep the gloves on, he embarrasses himself more and more every time he drops them.

For Boyle's own sake, I would suggest he keep the mitts on. Most college guys aren't very good at fighting to begin with, but Boyle can't fight his way out of a paper bag. You'd think that a guy who is teammates with Rupp and Bickel would know how to utilize his insane reach properly...Reply

He comes from the college system so he doesn't have the fighting ability a lot of other players have. Plus in this fight he got caught with one glove still on which doesn't help.

And not all big guys are good or willing fighters, (Joel Otto, Hal Gill, Hugh Jessiman etc...).

But you said that college players couldnt fight, and they are proof of exactly the opposite. I dont care when they switched their role, point is they are both solid fighters and respectable NHL enforcers.Reply

A. That sentence makes zero sense and B. You said that college guys "just can't fight." If that were the case, guys like Kevin Westgarth, John Scott and George Parros would have never figured it out. Saying that and then coming back with the fact that they learned it in the AHL doesn't matter, it's been years since Boyle has played college hockey, that argument would only be applicable for someone that just came out of the NCAA system

Come on clearly U.S college hockey players cant fight. Clearly. ok they go up to 4 years maybe of no fighting? doesn't make sense and yes all of them worked on it and switched there role of hockey to enforcers because they knew they weren't going anywhere if they didn't.Reply

Jan 23, 2013 22:54 ET
Im still entirely unsure of the point that your trying to make. Everyone knows they didnt fight in college. But hardly any of these guys are going straight from NCAA to the NHL, and even the ones that do almost all have atleast 2 years of Junior A experience under their belts before college. It is very rare that a player that the NHL is the first time a player has played a level of hockey that allows fighting. The only example I can really think of off the top of my head would be Nick Leddy, who went straight from high school to college to the NHL. But that is an extreme rarity.Reply

(Politely says) That's not a good-enough excuse because he could have taken boxing lessons during the offseason so that he doesn't look like a Baby Huey during a fight. Another reviewer here by the name of Tomahawkchopper gives the same excuse as you about George Parros not being a better fighter during 4 of his first 5 seasons in the nhl.
