Two nose enter, one nose leave. People will be mistaking Matt Martin for Owen Wilson

Posted by decostamail on February 07, 2015 at 07:18 PM

White looses on points but takes the title after a face smasher punch lands

Posted by dcmac on February 07, 2015 at 11:17 PM

No quarter asked, none given impressive fighting from both athletes.

Posted by doobi1 on February 06, 2015 at 09:29 AM

Wow, the refs gave us all a treat, and let 'em go for a change. This was a good matchup. Both were throwing them but none did any real damage untii White connected with the winning shot. Although Martin threw way more attempts, White got the one in that earns him the win.

WAY TO GO WHITE.. i iked you in montreal but now in orange.. feel great too :)

Posted by whaleoil on February 07, 2015 at 01:01 AM

nice overall technique by White to get some good shots in.

Posted by johnkos on February 06, 2015 at 10:35 PM

I was at the game and it looked like a very close fight from where i was sitting.. But after seeing the replay on the overhead screen, White landed a bomb that looked to break Martin's jaw. After the fight Martin wore a full length shield/cage which he didn't have on before the fight. Based upon this White over Martin fairly decisively.

Posted by battleshipfan on March 08, 2015 at 04:52 PM

great fight happy to see Martin get smacked. hope White broke a knuckle

Posted by NoSlackDelta on February 06, 2015 at 09:00 AM

First fight I've ever seen where you can actually watch his nose slide across his face. White with the indisputable win.

Posted by bbout2c on February 06, 2015 at 03:20 PM

martin doesn't loose to often , but he let white slip one in here and it was a good one, matt is a pretty tough kid, he will learn from this I'm sure ,he will be back! give white some credit though!

Posted by wildfan4eva on February 06, 2015 at 11:29 AM

Am I missing something? The fight was "OK" at best, but certainly not deserving of the rating people are giving it! I don't get it.....

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on February 10, 2015 at 12:36 AM

This has to be one of the best fights this season. MM is one of my favorites, and even though he got his face pounded in, he still put up a hell of a fight. Props to White for handing a true tough guy a serious beating.

Posted by Dolemite21 on February 05, 2015 at 07:35 PM

Martin threw a lot but didn't land much or anything substantial. He left for the locker room bloodied after taking a solid shot or two from White. Not many thrown by White but he did the damage and gets the edge.

Posted by callum on February 06, 2015 at 08:34 AM

If you score damage points, gotta give it to White. Martin is a tough kid but if that eye wasn't a previous injury it sure coloured up fast. Hope both guys are alright

Posted by davebrown21 on February 06, 2015 at 09:57 AM

martin threw nothing punches at the beginning and the end. white with the one big shot and then a couple of OK hooks at the end. i know it;s hard for isles fans to accept, but that was a domination by white. look at MM's face.

Posted by retired2006 on February 06, 2015 at 11:59 AM

The 1 punch that changd Martin's face was the only thing that mattered here. Martin bigger than White, 6'3, 210 vs 6', 190, but White connected, that nose is messed up!!!!!

Posted by jnk07899 on February 06, 2015 at 02:22 PM

Good scrap. I gave it a draw even though White turned Martin's nose sideways. Never want to deal with a broken shnoz. I know the pain. Unfortunate.

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on February 06, 2015 at 08:36 PM


Posted by sixclocks on February 06, 2015 at 06:31 PM

win for white. martin has a very sore beak.

Posted by mudman55 on February 06, 2015 at 08:30 AM

Martin's a tough kid, but White got him with a couple of good ones...And I think he actually straightened Martin's nose out. Martin looks just like the kid from Dazed and Confused, which is ironic.

Posted by BruinsAllDaySon on February 06, 2015 at 12:23 AM

Now they have matching noses.

Posted by kkdowning on February 06, 2015 at 04:07 PM

I guess Matt Martin will be wearing a visor until his broken nose heals . . .

Posted by gary9159 on February 05, 2015 at 07:41 PM

Die hard Isles fan here. White definitely got the better of Martin this time. Good to see the zebras let it go for more than two seconds. I give it a 6 and win for White.

Posted by Humper on February 05, 2015 at 09:14 PM

White did more and did it better. Martin doesn't lose often, but this time for sure.

Posted by the kid 61 on February 05, 2015 at 10:18 PM

Ryan White made him look like mary martin. Looks like White broke Martins nose. Oh well, win some loose some.

Posted by GB0914 on February 05, 2015 at 09:58 PM

Win for White, surgery for Martin.

Posted by boatman on February 06, 2015 at 09:40 AM

Hey,lets be honest here.That shot #17 took would have knocked out most dudes,he took it and won the 2nd half of this bout.Will give a split decision to White.

Posted by steakbelly8000 on February 05, 2015 at 07:35 PM

Busted nose for Matt Martin... Win, White...

Posted by kpdrummer82 on February 18, 2015 at 01:56 PM

His nose made it all the way to Jersey on that punch....

Posted by tpr1960 on February 06, 2015 at 07:02 PM

Watch White deform Martins nose in Slo-Mo, Awesome

Posted by KnuckleBuster on February 06, 2015 at 08:51 PM

Kind of punch that can mess with a guy's head as much as it messed with his beak. Curious to see if MM gets a little gun shy for a while.

Posted by jcstokes on February 05, 2015 at 08:02 PM

Martin's face looked like Pizza Huts meat lovers special. How can anyone vote for him. Took a blast then took some more. White and a 7.

Posted by rocky 1 on February 08, 2015 at 12:59 AM

I have waited a long long time for Martin to get punched squarely in the face and it was worth the wait.White breaks Martins nose very clearly in this one and gets a big win! Martin with the broken nose,man that was great! Would love to see Martin fight a real beastly heavy oh thats right he doesn,t fight those guys!

Posted by EDDUBBS on February 06, 2015 at 02:28 AM

White threw meaningful punches, broke his nose and bruised Martin ip, who is a gamer.

Posted by MeatPlow on February 06, 2015 at 03:27 PM

Wow......Martin is a pretty tough hombre and I don't know if may have taken White very serious? But that punch moved most of his nose over an inch. I don't think Martin will ever look the same. I want to believe that there will be payback. White to victory lane.

Posted by Ed Van Impe on February 06, 2015 at 06:32 AM

All this does is give that puke Martin an excuse to run people now as he will have to wear a protective shield to protect his shattered beak ...

Posted by mississippi on February 05, 2015 at 08:32 PM

Mark down February 5, 2015 as the last day Matt Martin will be compared to Brad Pitt. Win for White as a couple of his right hands hit Matty flush on the beak and opened him up. Martin came out for the 2nd period wearing a full plastic shield as well....adding insult to injury.

Posted by King of Goons on February 06, 2015 at 10:03 AM

Martin appeared to be in control of this fight until, from out of nowhere, White landed one devastating blow, right on the button. I've never seen Martin get hit like that. Credit to him to keep battling after getting absolutely blasted in his mug. Upset win for the White guy, who deserves a lot of credit here.

Posted by nait on February 05, 2015 at 09:16 PM

I love how the end up in front of the box

Posted by von_swine on February 05, 2015 at 10:53 PM

this year was goin pretty good for MM until that right handed BLAST from White almost took his nose off.. anyone who's bruising that bad, that quickly after getting drilled is prolly going to need a day off of the full contact drills in practice this week... time for Matt to visit the barber and hope the bruises are gone by the next time he plays the Flyers again.. #25 FTW in a heavy handed tilt...

Posted by leon stickle on February 05, 2015 at 07:28 PM

You don't see Matt Martin lose many bouts but he got whacked pretty good in that one.

Posted by Nystrom_23 on February 05, 2015 at 07:33 PM

Martin was in control until White hammered him good with a punch. Bloody beak for MM who went to the locker room for repairs. Good scrap. Win for White.

Posted by Behn Wilson on February 05, 2015 at 07:52 PM

Although some of my best buds in here are Islanders fans... And despite the fact that I've never bought Ryan White as a tough guy... As Tim Hunter must have repeatedly admitted... A broken nose is a broken nose

Posted by flyerguy on February 06, 2015 at 07:27 AM

To all you trolls who think Martin won, You must have got your a**es beat plenty of times then bragged you won. No other explanation for your stupidity !

Posted by EK65 on February 06, 2015 at 07:16 PM

Personal dislike for Ryan White aside that was a nice punch that landed flush on the beak. Win White & 6 Nice to see another guy willing to go on the Flyers!

Posted by The Mad House on February 05, 2015 at 08:09 PM

Welcome back Ryan White He gets in a good one here Martin starts off well White comes back and lands one real good one White wasn't the toughest the last couple years But in a league where middleweights now dominate This could now be his time "A broken nose is a broken nose" Win to White

Posted by mikebflorida on February 06, 2015 at 09:13 AM

He nailed him right in the head! He nailed him right in his mind!!! Fockin machine took my quarter!

Posted by badspotpicker on February 06, 2015 at 03:03 PM

wow big martin fan but he caught a good shot, win white

Posted by jlmcgui on February 05, 2015 at 07:52 PM

Welcome back to the NHL Ryan White ... just in time to replace Rinaldo as the resident thug. White lands a good one that sends Martin back to the locker room for a new sweater!

Posted by SURESHOT27 on February 06, 2015 at 10:33 AM

Bing Bam Bonk! Win White

Posted by DARCY T on February 07, 2015 at 05:18 AM

white landed only punch that really counted and broke martin's nose.i've always been a fan of white so it's nice to see him getting win over higher ranked fighter...but also props to martin for standing there and trying to continue after that

Posted by sedinfan on February 05, 2015 at 09:26 PM

Didn't see that coming as White rarely won one in Montreal. Credit Martin for hanging in there, but he will be getting a nose job tonight if he didn't get it already.

Posted by FDNY20192 on February 06, 2015 at 03:46 AM

Only one punch landed and that one punch won the scrap...The missile that White landed on Martin's potato....That potato is broke! White with the win....At least the Isles got much needed 2 points.

Posted by boldbilly on February 06, 2015 at 05:13 AM

Love both of these guys....White never got the credit he deserved while in Montreal. He fought everyone and they were usually bigger.His downfall was his propensity for taking bad penalties......let's hope that's behind him...Montreal wishes him well..... Martin showing how tough he is taking a real hard shot and battling to the end..gotta love the heart. Win White

Posted by bigmike53 on February 05, 2015 at 09:48 PM

This was a good scrap. Punches seemed about even, although one of White's did the most damage. Matt Martin is a good scrapper and he'll be back. Ryan White gets the nod here.

Posted by kill on February 06, 2015 at 12:27 PM

I did not know a nose can go in that many directions. Can you smell stuff with a broken nose? Got to give him credit though. I'm sure It was hard to breathe.

Posted by Great Murray on February 06, 2015 at 05:33 PM

Huge size mis-match. But an equally huge right hand mis-match. Martin gets his nose broken for sure...what a right hand by the little guy. On the other hand...HOW TOUGH IS MARTIN!!! Comes back to the bench with his nose still bleeding. PAY ATTENTION BETTMAN! Everyone loves these guys! I hear the Bolshoi Ballet is looking for a Commissioner...please apply for the job.

Posted by lb1631 on February 06, 2015 at 05:32 PM

Matt Martin never fights heavyweights so he has a good fight record. This he got his head handed to him.

Posted by gsrae on February 05, 2015 at 10:36 PM

Ryan White landed a couple of good shots and took this one over Martin. Entertaining bout and Martin most likely ended up with a broken nose.

Posted by TjRagusa10 on February 06, 2015 at 01:59 PM

I thought this was a great bout, two tough fighters going at it. Both guys landed some good shots but Martin's broken nose on that big right by White has to make White the winner here. Gotta respect Martin for continuing to battle and land some shots after White knocked his nose out of place.

Posted by KO-14 on February 06, 2015 at 08:54 AM

Zac who? Way to go White.

Posted by ironbar44 on February 06, 2015 at 06:26 PM

my goodness reading the papers here.i thought MARTIN dead at the minimum disfigured.until i watched it .MARTIN took his best shot kept on throwing landed more then he took. that one punch might have swung it for a win .but it was close. such hysteria here in philly .we lost. knowing a little about MARTIN he won't wear that face mask long

Posted by joedog on February 05, 2015 at 08:35 PM

Martin tough as nails...caught whites hardest punch and didnt flinch continued fighting....scary tough...i still say draw....sure Marts caught one but shook it off
