Other Penalties: Beaulieu received an instigator and misconduct; Clarkson an interference major and game misconduct.
horrible call on the hit this is a contact game and Gonchar turned to avoid the hit Clarkson has been a bust but didn't deserve 5 minutes and Beaulieu gets props for coming to the aid of his team mate but Clarkson lands the better shots and wins a close one
The call on Clarkson was to get him off the ice to avoid a brawl later. It saved him from facing a fresh Prust and a serious pounding. The kid gets extra credit for stepping up and I am going to give him the win and a 5. I think he landed a couple. Clarkson gets a mini-beat down but he also gets really embarrassed because of his lack of contribution to the Leafs was magnified in this game. He tries for a chickenchit spot picking fight with Prust. He takes a chickenchit shot at an honored vet and then he gets slapped around by a kid. Finally, his team actually got better with him gone. 4.5 Million a year for that chit...that GM should be in Sudbury selling popcorn. Bettman sucks and he can stick his instigator rule where the sun doesn't shine!
Theoretically Clarkson should have been able to take Beaulieu, but I don't think he does. On other hand, Beaulieu doesn't do enough for the the win either. Draw.
Beaulieu gains some major props from his team for stepping in to drop them with Clarkson after a dangerous hit on Gonchar. Although I decided on a draw. Clarkson does double duty in his 2 and change in ice time, ends up on the end of controversy both times but, hey atleast he's out there dropping them? Nice bit of spice between the oldest rivalry around. Draw & 4
okay people we know most of you are Clarkson haters, but this is a perfectly honest check, beaulieu does the right thing and stepping up for his teammate! Has Clarkson ever won a fight ,and people wonder what the problem is in Toronto!
Don't really say to much on the site, but when this punk CLARKSON is involved I can't stay quiet.. He is a punk, cheap shot artist that I still don't understand why an organization as good as Toronto could make such a mistake as too think this LOSER is worth 5.5 million a year.. Call this a draw, because as usual CLARKSON only fights guys who don't fight a lot or really aren't fighters… What a WASTE !!!
No damage draw
Good move by Beaulieu stepping up for his teammate. Crappy fight. Draw
Clarkson with the "cleanish" monster hit followed by a cheap elbow and a comeback draw against the reincarnation of Derrick Morris (I.E. a quality sleeper fighter)
As much as I would like to I can't give this to Beaulieu.....this fight was a draw.....Clarkson is a useless contract and gutless cheap shot artist.....he will get his soon enough
Beaulieu comes to the aid of Gonchar after the big hit by Clarkson. Beaulieu has the advantage early and then Clarkson gets his balance and comes back. Beaulieu landed more and Clarkson landed better. Draw.
This Beaulieu kid may not fight much, but he looks like he knows how to handle himself, just like the Canadiens' Big 3 from the 70's - Savard, Lapointe and Robinson.
since when does a defenceman in this league think he's untouchable, especially on the boards in his own end? Clarkson ran him, and it is Gonchar, but the whining!! he got filled with his head down, and as for the fight, every time that Beaulieu turned his head to throw he ate one, so Clarkson fair and square. Montreal isn't gonna win a cup this year either.
Very slight edge to the over paid Clarkson. Did I say very slight?
beaulieu steps up for clarkson's hit on gonchar.he started well but wasnt able to control the fight and he realized he wouldnt be able to beat clarkson after clarkson landed them last 2 counterpunches...edge clarkson
Close fight but the win goes to Clarkson!Homer voting here! Homer voting has skewed the fight results this year making a mockery out of this site.Vote with your eyes and not your Bias!
Hmmm where to begin? I didn't watch the game because curling was on SK vs Team CDN..Sooooo having said that Clarkson was the winner. If you watch the evidence (video). Clearly you can see at the end Clarkson letting up on the Kidd and Nathan looked relieved that he did that. I get it over paid, high priced. Does anyone blame David for signing a contract that was offered to him? Seems like nothing he does right now is right. He's still a NHL caliber player with GRIT. You win Stanley Cups with gritty players. Boston should trade for him straight up for Soderburg. Lots of skill no toughness.
Poor Leafs....stuck with Clarkson...who can't beat a 22 yr old skilled and soft defenseman.
Wow Clarkson, youre a waste of 5 million a year, just think what Fatdog could do with that money, probably size up one in T Shirt size to a " Goodyear" size......retire Clarkson, please
Clarkson gets beat by a Hab with alot of vowels in his name, take Clarkson out back and shoot him, oh and Gonchar is an old dog too, nice hit.
The fight has a draw, but the bigger question is what the hell was Clarkson doing?
Love that hit by Clarckson... That's good tough hockey. Unfortunately, he gave up on the fight prematurely. He seemed to have Bealiue in hand but just stopped. He should have taught the young man a lesson not to stick his nose where it didn't belong, but instead he just let it fizzle.
Clarkson...still a dick.
Hahahahahaha. Leafs suck. Clarkson sucks. Laffs2006 sucks
Beaulieu with the slight edge.
Embarrassing display by "le brigade de viseur" Takes the cue from brenda in the art of hanging on for refs to save the day shame on the logo de toilet seat
Beaulieu with the quick left jab after the right that staggers Clarkson. Winner Nathan Beaulieu.
no real punches landed but high marks for Beaulieu for standing up for Gonchar. Typical move by Clarkson the coward
no respect for CLARKSON
Clarkson is an idiot !
Clarkson is a POS. Winner Beaulieu.
Beaulieu connects with at least one good one.
Beaulieau, a pacifist, gets the moral victory for surviving (with visor) against an overrated Leaf that supposedly knows how to fight; turns out Clarkson sucks at that as well.
Clarkson is a jerk , the worst contract of the NHL .
Clarkson's has been watching from the rafters for a while and now his pent up energy will get him suspended, I think this guy makes $5 million a year. Probably the the most $ per minute played in the NHL. A tie!
I looked at the hit a few times and looked to me that Clarkson let up on the hit beaulieu jumped in good for him
Beaulieu came on strong in the beginning and went tit for tat at the end for the win.
Good for Beaulieu fir jumping in to support Gonchar. Cheap headshot by Clarkson. Beaulieu wins a close fight!
wow Clarkson such a dud now woah
Beaulieu won that fight cleanly, he did this for his teammate so I have even more respect for him. Great fight from the habs rookie
Clarkson knew it was coming and should have drilled Beaulieu ... not sure how you all had Beaulieu winning this fight ... maybe an eye exam is in order ... draw
Say what you will (and he has been a bust), at least Clarkson tries . . . Oh, and the fight I will give it a draw as Clarkson had some balance issues. Not sure that was a bid hit that led to the fight.
clarkson...hands down. Just like their playoff future this year.....Habs out in 1st round
I hate that hit by Clarkson. It was dirty.
Clarkson...Typical Leaf player. Overrated and dirty
Wasn't a bad or dirty hit, grow up people! Cant believe he got 5 friggin minutes for that. Clarkson took a run at Gonchar, and Beaulieu did a good job stepping up and letting Clarkson know he didn't like it. Unlike my Bruins lately, it set a good tone. Good fair tough fight, let the boys play. Gave it a draw
Hit = OK Fight = Draw Clarkson = Not worth the money, but at least trying to do something in this game
Nice clean hit by Clarkson sparks this bout. After getting jumped, he quickly gains composure and lands a couple a very nice shots. Easy win for Clarkson
