Anderson showed some heart going with Chara after that big hit. Even scrap IMO.

Posted by Biggus on October 31, 2017 at 02:44 PM

Anderson shows some strength that surprises and unbalances Chara and allows him to land a couple. I thought Chara kind of bailed with the takedown. Calling it a draw.

Posted by Hilaker on October 31, 2017 at 12:48 AM

I give the nod to Anderson for landing the best punch. Also give him credit for defending himself against the big tall goof ball.

Posted by sndaysnipr on October 31, 2017 at 04:08 PM

Not much of a fight but Anderson got Chara off balance and stung him with a right. Chara wanted no more of that and wrestled Anderson down. Edge Anderson

Posted by Kersus on October 31, 2017 at 04:48 PM

Anderson took it to Chara after Clara's dirty hit and had Chara not decided to wrestle to the ice, Anderson may have come out a much bigger winner.

Posted by Jreedy24 on October 31, 2017 at 10:57 AM

I had to give this one to Anderson. both didn't do much but Anderson was just getting going, Chara knew it and decided to go for the takedown.

Posted by dogginit on October 31, 2017 at 11:02 PM

All Anderson, he landed a few on Chara. Chara landed nothing, got surprised and wrestled Anderson to the ice so he wouldn't get his ass kicked. Win Anderson. Chara showed he is a Puss and when he couldn't land punches with his reach wrestled to the ice.. Total bully who got shown the error of his ways, he likely won't even skate on the same side of the ice as Anderson anymore.

Posted by Humper on October 31, 2017 at 09:51 AM

Oh yes, Jack Edwards IS an asshat. The exchange of punches and their effectiveness looked pretty even to me. That "takedown" at the end don't count for poop except it's Chara's way to bail out of something he wasn't winning. This was a draw. Maybe the freakish giant will do better next year when he's chucking them in a old folk's home.

Posted by mr. puttzo on October 31, 2017 at 10:36 AM

Anderson landed the two best punches. Zdeno the zero has 8" and 70lbs on the guy and still can't put him away, what a POS. Jack Edwards living proof that anal sex can cause pregnancy

Posted by beowulf37 on October 31, 2017 at 04:38 PM

Cheap dirty hit from Chara. Good for Anderson for standing up for himself. Chara needs to retire.

Posted by EK65 on October 31, 2017 at 11:58 PM

Chara wrestles Anderson to the ground after a short exchange. Props to the kid for going in at it the big man. Draw & 4.

Posted by DARCY T on November 23, 2017 at 12:36 PM

it looked like a boarding on anderson to me by chara.anderson didnt like it either....anderson did quite a good job against the giant.it was a wise decision to get away from the boards...it was a close fight but it looked like chara landed 1 or 2 more and when he was in trouble he took anderson down with him....edge chara/draw

Posted by jerry s on October 31, 2017 at 05:16 AM

boarder line cheap hit by chara good job for Anderson standing up to him decent fight jack Edwards is an ass calling bruin fights

Posted by 18buell on November 01, 2017 at 10:46 AM

Big props to Anderson for not only stepping up to battle Chara but for his intensity throughout the game. Good strong young player. Tough to battle Chara because of his size and strength. Big Z had a good game and as usu al answered the challenge. Great leader. Draw and fun to watch.

Posted by Sorator on October 31, 2017 at 12:24 PM

Anderson got Chara good with that right, and that's when and why Chara decided to end it. I'd call that a draw.

Posted by Pulsator58 on October 31, 2017 at 08:39 AM

Anderson with the best shot.........not much else.... a draw

Posted by tacomania on October 31, 2017 at 11:14 PM

the big guy

Posted by Jellyczar on October 31, 2017 at 07:20 AM

As far as the fight ... short , no bombs, slight edge to Chara ....

Posted by sionnan on November 06, 2017 at 01:40 PM

Morons voting for Anderson WTF is wrong with you?

Posted by dannnyboy on November 02, 2017 at 09:44 AM

takedown=Chara win

Posted by GoonVisor on October 31, 2017 at 10:36 AM

Small nod to Z in a very close 4. F'kn Torts had the BJ's running around all night. Miller finally made someone pay. Chara's hit was questionable.

Posted by FreeBronson on October 31, 2017 at 08:31 AM


Posted by Jointman on October 31, 2017 at 04:21 AM

how the F can someone on this vote for Anderson. this is clear win for Chara. he would eat him alive.

Posted by cabsf15e on November 07, 2017 at 02:17 AM

Not sure what fight some of you watched, but this fight was dominated by Chara, and he was not "stung" by Anderson. Anderson got rocked with a very hard, clean check, which prompted him to initiate the fight...bad move on his part...Anderson is a tough kid at 6'1" and around 200lbs., but he's out of his league vs. Chara...simple as that.

Posted by Esjay1980 on October 31, 2017 at 08:58 PM

Chara with a narrow win. He gets bonus points for drawing blood.

Posted by powerforward92 on October 31, 2017 at 11:06 AM

last punch from Z was decisive. 5/10, edge Chara

Posted by BruinManiac on November 01, 2017 at 02:11 PM

Bruin haters are already out. Chara all day every day.

Posted by Ecce72 on November 03, 2017 at 05:46 AM

Smart play by Chara. No need to risk anymore injuries to the Bruins. If it was the playoffs Anderson would have needed a stretcher. Props to Chara for going with the kid after a good hit.

Posted by Orielly on November 08, 2017 at 10:14 AM

Lets just say Z was being kind. He respected the Andys willing to be a combatant, and not turtle. He was just saying easy kid.

Posted by BennyD on October 31, 2017 at 10:46 AM

I think the 1 right by Anderson landed but did no damage, giving JA the slight W.

Posted by CDNNYI on October 31, 2017 at 08:49 AM

Guys, if you are going to vote, vote on the fight. It's clear the votes for Anderson are from all the Chara haters. Yes, Anderson lands a good one, but then Chara starts chucking and takes Anderson down. The best you could give Anderson is a draw.

Posted by Imarabhata on October 31, 2017 at 05:51 PM

Chara just looks disinterested.

Posted by Yhawee on November 06, 2017 at 08:34 PM

A few good shots. Chara did the most damage then in typical Chara fashion hugged it out!

Posted by WhaleBoy on October 31, 2017 at 09:44 PM

I'll give it to Anderson. He had the clean hit but pretty bad fight.

Posted by von_swine on November 01, 2017 at 04:18 AM

Josh gets PASTED into the end-boards before clearing the cobs and going after the sleestack in true MAN fashion... the tussle is one for debate, but the spirit of the bout is not as 'little man' scores a heroic shot to Chara's grill in a display of what hockey was and should always be.. a place where no quarter exists.. #77 FTW

Posted by ironbar44 on October 31, 2017 at 08:46 AM

i must have seen a different fight how is ANDERSON the winner ?

Posted by HockeyFightKing on January 22, 2021 at 02:42 AM

Josh Anderson landed the better punches. Classy Chara going for the takedown. Gotta give it to Anderson.

Posted by Old Grouch on October 31, 2017 at 01:05 AM

Anderson landed the best blows one of them connected cleanly.

Posted by BlueJacket Jay on October 31, 2017 at 10:07 PM

Surprisingly Anderson faired well. When theu squared off I thought Uh Oh Josh, maybe you should let this one go. But aftet Chara connected once, Anderson's adrenal glands kicked in. Josh unbalanced Chara and landed a few on his noggin. I think Chara was surprised and wanted to find a way out. Chara may have been slightly dazed because he only exhibited his wrestling skills after, and sought out the safety of the penalty box for the next 5 minutes.

Posted by hockeyrules999 on October 31, 2017 at 08:00 PM

Even Chara can't win a fight for the Goons unless they go after European kids.

Posted by smichaels10 on November 01, 2017 at 12:27 PM

If Chara had any balance on his skates, he'd be unbeatable.

Posted by BruinsAllDaySon on November 02, 2017 at 07:54 PM

For everyone saying Chara didn't land a punch: there was one guy bleeding after the fight. That guy's name is not Zdeno Chara. This was a draw. GREAT move by Anderson to get the big man off balance and get a good shot in.

Posted by kitcarnut on November 01, 2017 at 12:58 AM

Chara gets the small edge. not a real fight.

Posted by Jez-x on October 31, 2017 at 09:08 AM

What was Anderson thinking,win Chara.

Posted by relkin on November 04, 2017 at 10:00 PM

So you guys want Chara to bash the guy repeatedly in the back of the head when he has him hunched over? This great punch you talk about him hitting Chara with didn't even knock him back instead he went closer. He then has the poor guy defenseless and you morons are mad he didn't curb stomp him.

Posted by WhyGo77 on October 31, 2017 at 10:44 AM

I gave a slight advantage to Anderson because of the right he landed.

Posted by Oswegofightfan on October 31, 2017 at 04:28 PM

So we got some Bruins fans on here, I guess. Come on who the hell voted for Chara. Misses 10 punches gets punched 3 times, takes the guy down before he gets hurt. ANDERSON, not a draw. You guys kill me with your bias bullshit. P.s. the blood on his nose was from the cheep ass hit from behind. Chara=shit Can you of you chara loving fags tell me what he did that won the fight

Posted by stoopid760 on November 01, 2017 at 12:05 AM

Chara decided to wuss out winner goes to Anderson

Posted by Goon71 on November 02, 2017 at 11:38 PM

Big Goof needs to go home to Transylvania

Posted by gsrae on November 01, 2017 at 09:00 PM

Not much of a fight. Slight adv@ntage to Anderson, 4 Was hoping it would have been a better scrap

Posted by rocky 1 on October 31, 2017 at 03:41 PM

Anderson gave as good as he took and Chara bailed out on this one realizing that he fight loose this one!

Posted by 1E21 on October 31, 2017 at 01:42 PM

Chara barely landed the first punch (if it landed at all). Anderson rang Chara’s bell and Chara pussed out like normal and wrestled him to the ice. But I see plenty of Bruins fans sucking in Z’s d**k.

Posted by JeanLaRose on February 17, 2018 at 03:17 PM

I have to give that to Anderson. Chara was settled in for his "keep the fight at arm's length, literally" routine and Anderson showed some nice awareness and technical strength to pull the giant off balance and land a nice shot that had Chara doing the two step for a moment and then pulling the ripcord and taking him down.

Posted by BooSanta on November 01, 2017 at 09:15 PM

People do tend to root for the smaller guy. Charbroil's hit was borderline dirtbag, but in all fairness Anderson should't have his head down that close to the boards with Chara waitting to measure him. You have to love Anderson giving his 2 sense afterwards Landing the only punch that mattered in that fight.

Posted by hughcares on October 31, 2017 at 10:14 AM

Anderson with the only punch that landed and gets the W. Lurch gets a little tug loses balance and chews on one

Posted by Don Berry on November 01, 2017 at 07:11 PM

way to stick for yourself JA!!

Posted by jnc_927 on October 31, 2017 at 11:44 PM

win mr anderson... chara has no interest in fighting, hence the wrestling take down.. boston sucks, but philly is a dirty dirty city.. ppl from philly are dirty. the girls from philly are filthy with beards. ppl from philly are dumb as rocks with no class or self esteem.

Posted by sulley71 on October 31, 2017 at 09:23 AM

This is a Draw OR Anderson win, he landed the only real shot!

Posted by original6vet on November 01, 2017 at 11:23 AM

Clara is nothing but a bully : glad to see him beat

Posted by rickflare on October 31, 2017 at 03:40 PM

Gotta vote for anderson, kid has some major stones. Looked like chars got mad and was about to start unloading but then took down anderson

Posted by toy boy dan on October 31, 2017 at 01:47 PM

BRAVO for Anderson!

Posted by Hitem hard on October 31, 2017 at 02:23 PM

Anderson lands the big maybe only punch........therefore the winner, fairly simple.

Posted by pabrc on October 04, 2018 at 04:39 PM

Give Anderson credit for getting up from that hit to fight. Anderson landed the biggest shot in the fight.

Posted by glovedropper08 on November 11, 2017 at 04:34 PM

Win to Anderson

Posted by Great Murray on October 31, 2017 at 07:44 AM

Anderson landed the only good punch. Chara whiffs a few and then takes Anderson down to end the fight. Chara's lack of speed also reared it's ugly head when he got beat up ice and watched a Blue Jacket score...from well behind the play. I was very surprised to see them keep him on the roster. Anderson gets the win.

Posted by moneybags on October 31, 2017 at 01:24 AM

Anderson with the bloody nose got out alive this time

Posted by Mounty in NC on October 31, 2017 at 09:54 PM

I give it a draw... Sorry Bruins fans Chara doesn't get points for pulling Anderson down, this isn't wrestling

Posted by slapshotmcg on October 30, 2017 at 11:59 PM

Chara with the win, but a good job by Anderson for standing in there with him. Should have probably been a two min penalty on the hit.

Posted by Behn Wilson on November 01, 2017 at 02:00 PM

Brave if not misguided Even though the result was a forgone conclusion... Anderson provides a valuable lesson for future Chara challengers The ol' yank and throw technique ala Gary Howatt

Posted by maverick8500 on October 30, 2017 at 10:20 PM

Poor fight overall Anderson only landed a single punch while Chara had maybe 4-5 win goes to Z but not a great fight

Posted by Jaxon on October 31, 2017 at 10:12 AM

LOL. So many Bruins/Chara haters here. Heck, somebody had to be hated now that Lucic is gone. We all know the real truth is that y'all only wish you had these kinds of players on your team. But keep trash-talkin, I get it. But Anderson with the win or even close to a draw? Mwahahaha, omg! Anyway, it used to be about who won the fight, not who threw (what some believe was) the 'best' punch. haha. Anyway, I give it a 4-ish, and big Z the obvious W.

Posted by Vito514 on October 31, 2017 at 01:07 AM

6"8 of puss. I give the win to anderson.

Posted by MOPAR MUSCLE on October 31, 2017 at 05:07 AM

Chara 100%

Posted by dean94harrison on October 31, 2017 at 12:05 AM

A 4 and a draw.

Posted by web1350 on November 04, 2017 at 08:32 AM

Columbus announcers trying to convince us Anderson did better than he really did. Columbus fans convinced Anderson did better than he really did. YOURE ALL WRONG!!! Chara all the way.

Posted by bramiam@aol.com on November 01, 2017 at 10:57 PM

40 years old , multi millionaire with nothing left to prove, but still will drop the gloves in this non fighting league. He gets the W just for that.
