Is this really considered a hockey fight in modern day game?????

Posted by Bigford83 on March 06, 2011 at 02:29 PM

Props to Boyle for stepping up and taking on a heavyweight here. Used his reach to defend himself well. Instigator call was absolutely terrible on the part of the officials.

Posted by MikeVee on March 07, 2011 at 02:09 AM

Yay- The Flyers won a fight...Oh wait, cancel that since it was a non-fighter. Great to see Shelley finally win one. That was pretty damn pathetic. Initial hit sure looked high to me as well.

Posted by bradyj4 on March 07, 2011 at 12:04 PM

All Shelley with an easy win. Props to Boyle for sticking up for a teammate on an OBVIOUS high hit.

Posted by jnc_927 on March 07, 2011 at 12:20 AM

win shelley against a non-fighter.. i guess the old timer realizes his days of fighting real fighters are coming to an end.. tough to watch these guys at the end of their careers. in his prime, shelley would have laughed at an invite from a non-fighter. philly is a dirty city.. it's like queens if you dipped it in sh$t..

Posted by Hammernnails on March 18, 2011 at 03:59 PM

Nice to see Shelly throwing his weight around again . To bad Carkner wasn't on the ice so Shelley could put on his chicken suit and head for the bench! As for Fernben 8 , a chicken is not a " beast" !

Posted by ronraff on March 06, 2011 at 09:39 PM

Shelly is a p*ssy, Dirty hit, dirty Bastard If any one here really believes this was a clean hit you should be playing for the Islanders lol Boyle didn't instigate they dropped them together. If anything sheila,, i mean shelly dropped them first. And it seems Avery did his job and pissed Sheila off. Bottom line 7-0 lmao

Posted by slavv on March 06, 2011 at 07:14 PM

I like what Boyle did because the head contact by Shelley was bullshiit. Shelley dominated from there, though...

Posted by DARCY T on March 13, 2011 at 04:32 PM

it looks like boyle just wanted to get shelley off the ice for 5 minutes.not much of fight becuz only shelley tried to win and got the edge...gave it 3

Posted by billy jack on March 06, 2011 at 01:59 PM

boyle folded like a cheap tent,if your going to rescue a guy come with fire in your eyes.and mean it.

Posted by sulley71 on March 07, 2011 at 12:00 AM

I guess I'll give the win to Shelly, no damage, he's the only one who threw a few!

Posted by Ege Bamyasi on March 07, 2011 at 03:58 PM

I don't think he did it intentionally, but at 37 seconds Shelley makes initial contact with Gilroy's head.

Posted by Behn Wilson on March 08, 2011 at 12:19 AM

Shelley seems to break Dave Schultz's previous record, by single-handedly destroying two Rangers in less than 20 seconds. Superior hit.

Posted by sporr on March 07, 2011 at 10:43 AM

Crap call with the instigator. How can the refs be so aweful? Clearly both dropped the gloves at the same time. An instigator penalty here is ridiculous. You could give Shelly the instigator for delivering the hit that caused the fight but that wouldn't be right either. Makes as much sense as lugnuts on a wedding cake! Some people on this board are so tiring. How can you say it was a dirty hit or high hit. Crosscheck? Yeah everyone crosschecks with one hand on the stick. The d pinches with his head down, Shelly cleans his clock with a clean, legal and GOOD hit and finishes his check and people on here who obviously never played any meaningful hockey call it a high hit? That's as pathetic as the intigator call. Come on homers. Props to Boyle for sticking up for a teamate but it was a clean hit on a normal play that happens all the time. No more than 5 for fighting for each. Truly pathtic by the refs and some serious morons on this site.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on March 06, 2011 at 07:30 PM

Props to Boyle. He is no coward.

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on March 06, 2011 at 06:28 PM


Posted by msaw1125 on March 06, 2011 at 02:09 PM

All Shelley in this one, Boyle needed to step-up to protect his player. Boyle is not a heavyweight even though he is a big guy, and with Boogey Man gone for the season, someone needed to do something, Boyle just lucky he didn't get hurt real bad.

Posted by fernben8 on March 06, 2011 at 01:51 PM

Boyle does the honorable thing for his mate but I don't think it was really the best time to pick on Shelley... You see Mr. Boyle, Jody has been on a hot streak and many have referred to him as a 'Beast' lately. I told you so...

Posted by Anonymousplayer on March 07, 2011 at 10:21 PM

pretty lame

Posted by Clark75 on March 07, 2011 at 06:42 PM

If your gonna pick a fight Boyle, you should try to get at least one punch in before being rag dolled.

Posted by ETR on March 06, 2011 at 06:39 PM

Shelley with the easy win here. Boyle is big but he's not a good fighter. Hit by Shelley looked clean. Bad call on the instigator and misconduct.

Posted by pmarz1 on March 06, 2011 at 04:33 PM

obvious win by Shelley but those of you who think his hit on Gilroy was clean, think again. Clear shot to the head. Will be surprised if he isnt at least fined for the hit.

Posted by capsfloors on March 06, 2011 at 03:56 PM

Shelly puts the beat down on Boyle who tried to stick up for a teammate. He didn't instigate as he dropped the gloves after Shelly. Bad call by the refs there.

Posted by BooSanta on March 16, 2011 at 01:05 PM

Best hit of this fight was the hit before the fight. Shelly in a class act chose to drop at the same time as Boyle so BB should never have gotten the gate. He was just sticking up for the teamate, although rather unsuccessfully against a grizzled vet.

Posted by Fults on March 07, 2011 at 09:32 AM

Clean hit? His stick was up in the chin of Gilroy, you hoser. Boyle's no fighter, props to him for telling Josie: "c'mon man, I don't want to fight you, but you can't run around like that."

Posted by DMM on March 06, 2011 at 04:50 PM

Some of you people on here are pathetic. Lets see sedinfan and wakeupthedead. Is it suddenly unusual for a team mate to stick up for another...even on a clean it...get a life sedinfan. Props to Boyle, who is not afighter to stick up for his team! Boogeyman will remember this and take care of business accordingly. Who is Avery hiding from???? Wheres Carillo??

Posted by staceyb on March 06, 2011 at 03:36 PM

Well it was instigating as Boyle got the instigator and the toss from the game. Kudos to Boyle for stepping up for the Shelley hit on Gilroy but Shelley appears to have hit skull with that one thunderous right. Shelley had been looking to go with Avery who was after Zherdev. Avery thought the wiser so Shelley skated around and met Gilroy head on. Boyle paid for Avery's sins.

Posted by Towmater on March 06, 2011 at 09:26 PM

Shelley with the win. Didn't really look like an instigator to me, they both seemed to engage.

Posted by rocky 1 on March 27, 2011 at 03:23 AM

Easy win for Shelley on a big guy!

Posted by bruins rule on March 06, 2011 at 01:39 PM

shelley gets the win in this fight.

Posted by Snot-Bubbler on March 06, 2011 at 05:32 PM

Laughable 10 minute misconduct and instigator. How many times has this happened this year and no penalties handed out. Consistency does not exist in the NHL with penalties........Kudos for Boyle (non-fighter) sticking up for his teamate after a high cheap shot by Shelley Long. Boyle challenges and Shelley Long wins in a easy win. I guess Shelley Long feels tough with no Boogy man. Flyer fans suck a$$.... Cally with a 4 spot BIOTCHES!!!!!

Posted by ogie ogiltorpe on March 06, 2011 at 03:34 PM

Boyle lost his contact lens and was looking for it on the ice and Frankenstein's Mary Shelley helps him down for a closer look

Posted by sedinfan on March 06, 2011 at 01:55 PM

There is nothing I enjoy more than watching someone get the pi** beat out of him after starting a fight because of a clean hit. Too bad Shelley didn't knock him right over the glass.

Posted by tonetone1 on March 06, 2011 at 03:30 PM

shelley forsure

Posted by GreatMurray on March 07, 2011 at 08:00 AM

Boyle stepped up an got knocked down. Must have helped his team though...7 to zip. Another instigator penalty for sissies. I wonder what sport No-Bettman played. My money is on something like debate or latin club...he probably got pullied there too.

Posted by Broad215Bullies on March 11, 2011 at 04:38 PM

Not a long fight, but a few short hammers from Shelley and it's over

Posted by decostamail on March 06, 2011 at 05:15 PM

Started a fight with the wrong dude

Posted by ItalianHunk21 on March 06, 2011 at 04:54 PM

Even though Boyle is big, he really isn't a fighter. I don't know why people are dogging him. He's good, he did a noble thing here. Too bad the Boogie man is hurt, he always fights with Shelley. Also... That was such a bad call giving him an instigator. But... I'll take the 7-0 win. I don't understand the hatred for Avery... The Flyers have had, and still hose the dirtiest players in the NHL. whatever... Shelley with the win.

Posted by tocchetblue on March 07, 2011 at 05:42 AM

flyers are soft

Posted by b.t.wilson on March 06, 2011 at 02:51 PM

shelley with a beautiful hit on a pinching ranger defenceman, then proceeds to crack the skull of the oncoming cavalry. boyle had his bell rung for sure, one of those shots really stunned him good. looked like it might've caught ear. ouch. shelley and a 7.

Posted by ETHREE on March 06, 2011 at 05:58 PM

WHY do players insist on fighting someone for dishing out a CLEAN hit?? WHY?! Why, can't we get brawls more often after a dirty hit? Win Shelley, domination Shelley.

Posted by AZfromNJ on March 07, 2011 at 01:04 AM

Shelley is back.....pummels Boyle in this one. Boyle came chasing after him, of course he gets the instigator!! Props to Boyle this fight fueled the Rangers much moreso than the Flyers.

Posted by proctor44 on March 06, 2011 at 09:49 PM

the flyers should be happy that jody shelley is hot right now especially since lappy is most likely done for good and carcillo has been getting bitched regularly, not to mention richard's still not being able to take down dubinsky.. but yeah clean hit by shelley and boyle made a big mistake in taking on the menance. w shelley 7

Posted by WAKEUPTHEDEAD on March 06, 2011 at 04:19 PM

Shelley puts the stamp on this bum. Avery knows he'd better hide, or pray the boogie man comes back

Posted by fridaymatinee on March 14, 2011 at 07:46 PM

Perfectly clean hard hit. Pick your head up son. Shelley then takes care of business.

Posted by cppalermo on March 09, 2011 at 02:26 PM

Boyle did the right thing stepping in but he was in over his head. Shelly the win

Posted by ThrowdownSJ408 on March 06, 2011 at 08:54 PM

should be no instigator here but win shelley

Posted by hok1n on March 06, 2011 at 04:50 PM

The Instigator rule is ruining the NHL. It looks like Shelly got him with a headbutt and cross check to the face on the same play. Well at least he won a fight( against a skilled player). It's just sad how he does things like chase around Avery (who I hate), who is 2 weight classes below him.

Posted by BritishRedWing on March 06, 2011 at 03:12 PM

Win Shelley.

Posted by trueblue3044 on March 06, 2011 at 09:03 PM

Good for Boyle to stand up for Gilroy for getting cross checked in the face. For all you retards who are saying it was a clean hit, get shelleys dick out of your mouth and look again. shelleys a great fighter though and easily won this won. but the instigator was pure bs

Posted by muskokadangler on March 07, 2011 at 04:24 PM

Mild fight ...... No damage done!!!!! Skate to the box boys the instigator was for picking a fight with a guy for delivering a good check

Posted by illukka on March 07, 2011 at 02:35 AM

shelly wins this with a flurry of rights

Posted by chad420 on March 06, 2011 at 04:40 PM

allday Shelley

Posted by Oil Can Henry on March 06, 2011 at 02:20 PM

Why even bother droppin' gloves? All Boyle did was get beat-up,....

Posted by fentonhardy on March 07, 2011 at 08:21 AM

Unfortunately for Boyle, he picked the wrong spot and ended up getting the throttling that Avery should have taken when he had the chance. Total mismatch, and the only thing that went right for the Flyers in this game. TKO for Shelley.

Posted by Big_Fat_Dan on March 07, 2011 at 07:11 AM

Big Boyle earns credit for taking on Shelley, but Shelley was to good for Boyle, Easy win Shelley.

Posted by bronxz00 on March 06, 2011 at 01:50 PM

Boyle was done with the first few punches as it rocked him and he never recoverd shelly really hit him hard. thats what happens when you drop the gloves with a proven fighter.

Posted by TrueBlue26 on March 06, 2011 at 03:57 PM

I dont understand boyle is huge y isnt he just tossing guys around but idk
