Not sure how you guys are rating this a draw, Beaulieu landed more, including the big one that wobbled Martin. Props to Martin for staying upright, and was able to sneak a few small punches in when Beaulieu was pulled off balance, but not nearly enough to suggest this was an even fight.
Beaulieu stepped up and did what Jordan Nolan should have done. Spirited scrap and a win for Beaulieu.
I am a big proponent of having Matt Martin in the Leafs lineup as the Toronto team is basically devoid of any grit; however, if Martin is life and death with someone like Beaulieu then Matt will not be a deterrent to anyone - particularly a tough Boston team in the playoffs. I called it a draw as Martin finished strong but he should have easily handled Beaulieu - hopefully just a little rust for Martin who is a decent fighter in this new soft NHL.
I'm a big Martin fan and that's a weird fight to call a winner in. Beaulieu definitely got the best shot in and buckled Martin's knees with a wicked connect flush on the jaw that would have knocked most men out but man did Martin show a lot of pride in not taking a knee and to instead come up swinging and take Beaulieu down. It has to be a draw. I also think Martin has rust on his skates. It seems like he has been sitting out half the season, not good for a player's confidence.
OH YEAH!!! Great fight Beaulieu landed the best punch for sure. But Martin land 3 that were pretty damn good too. Martin's knees buckled but he kept going and landed punches after that. Gotta be a draw. Beaulieu with a bomb but Martin with more punches. Square up and throw'em boys...that's the way you do it. 8
Not sure why the thread was closed...guess the mods are changing with the times...yup Martin got dropped...then got up and beat Nathan into the ice which makes it a crazy fight to call...I go Draw...
I almost posted TKO but Martin came back in the end to earn a hard draw. Very surprised at how good of a fight it was.
"...catches him right on the left chin..."
Great job boys.
Decent shot by Beaulieu as he was falling, but Martin gets back up and takes control. Beaulieu then falls to the ice, cowering from a flurry of shots. Win Martin
Martin landed way more , dude wasn’t wearing a puss viser fight goes completely differnt way! Martin still comes back and lands 3/4 more to knock him down . Win martin if anyone doesn’t realize viser protects your face making it unfair , only reason why you would vote against martin on this one.
Martin has a weak jaw and the whole leauge knows it
Beaulieu dropped martin with a good shot. Martin showed some toughness and recovered but couldnt do enough. Beaulieu and a 7.
Martin is the biggest pansy in the league
Close fight with both guys chukking them.Beaulieu caught martin square on the chin that buckled his knees but Martin came back at the end. Gave it a Draw!
Good scrap, but Beaulieu landed the big punch to take the W no question
Hey Martin give it up you little b*tch. Looks like you've got a glass jaw! Oh yeah you do. You play for the p*ssy leafs.
Beaulieu surprised me in this fight landing a solid hit to Martin's jaw nearly dropping him. Good recovery by Martin but too little too late.
WOW! Beaulieu showed no fear and Dropped Martin. What a fight. Win Beaulieu!
Wasn’t quite expecting that. Good fight by both, but Beaulieu takes it. Good shot landed, props to Martin for even being able to get back up.
Beuller calls in sick, "borrows" Matt Martin's Ferrari, and embarks on a one-day journey through the streets of Buffalo.
The shot that buckled Martin's knees was all Beaulieu needed for the W. Otherwise a pretty even match.
What was Beaulieu doing? Jumping up weight classes... and then he drops Martin. I love how the only punch Martin does land is after he trips him. Beaulieu with the clear win. No points for tripping and punching a guy when he is down.
Leafs fans have Martin winning?!?
Oohh Baby. Good one...finally. Beaulieu with the slight edge for the W.
Beaulieu was chuckin out of the gates Martin followed suit, but not sure if he did any damage Beaulieu starts throwing again and hit Martin with a beauty on the chin That punch made Martin look like Bambi But to his credit, he got back up and started throwing again However, it wasn’t enough Beaulieu in a good one
For not having a rep like Martin, Beaulieu did fine. Martin has been in Babcocks dog house for a while. He needs to step it up or its Bye Bye to the AHL were the real tuffs guys are.
Great scrap, I was ready to give this a draw since Martin came back, but didn't do any damage, so slight edge to Beaulieu. Loved it!
Beaulieu dropped Martin, but to his credit, Martin gets back up and starts landing some fists of his own. Good fight that was pretty even, slight edge maybe to Beaulieu.
Beaulieu with the win.. but some interesting thoughts - Jeanerette was going to say Beaulieu was overmatched? Really? that'snot typical of Jeanerette for the last 40 yerars. - Is that Rob Ray doing color? Left chin? How about left cheek? - A Sabre winning a fight?
Beaulieu landed a beauty, that alone scored a win. Big props to Martin for having the strength to get back up and save face.
Nate was busier and landed more for the unexpected W. Both guys were clearly throwing to win. Good scrap 7
Yes Martin is the better fighter but, Beaulieu isn't a slouch. Remember when he destroyed Paquette's face mask with a punch. He has deceptive power. He catches Martin here to get the win.
Beaulieu bucklin Martin’s knees...didn’t know he had it in him. Martin is one of the regulars too. Nice work.
beau this time
How did Martin not fall?
Solid fight. Gotta give the win to Beaulieu. That knee buckler was a thing of beauty
one of the best fights of the season so far
Beaulieu showed up, atleast someone has some grit on this sabres team. I’m impressed that Beaulieu went toe to toe with Martin and knocked him down. Also impressed that Martin was able to get back up.. pretty good tilt. Big win for Beaulieu
HAHA Maple Loaf fans voting for Martin. Beaulieu kicked his ass.
Martin win...the visor stops punches again, the fight would have been over with the first 3 Martin hit him with if not for the visor. To the guy quoting NHL Visor rules...Fighters without visors always protected themselves from each other when fighting....Now the Visor protects them and they know it..A puck cannot penetrate the visor so how is a much suppose to;. Bubble head fighters pure and simple
Wow that was one hell of a scrap....I scored it an 8 and gave the slight edge to Beaulieu... When I first read the caption I was sure that Martin had destroyed him...but no. During his time in Montreal Beaulieu demonstrated his willingness to mix it up and come to the aide of teammates .....but he never had a showing like this.... Win for Beaulieu....and a big shout out to Martin for making it a great fight even after he was tagged so solidly...
Beauileu has what, 17 fights in the nhl and he tagged Martin.
Good fight. For everyone complaining about a visor . . . . The league made it mandatory for anyone if you entered after three 13'-14' season
Fuck you Matt martin
Beaulieu nails Martin on the chin just like William Carrier did last year in Buffalo and his eyes shut then ! Beaulieu in a TKO and Beaulieu had enough marbles to do an interview between periods ! Martin hasn't been seen since that fight ! Must be staring at the stars over Lake Erie !
Martin gets tagged with a good shot but lands more than Beaulieu for a close win
wow loses to BEAULIEU, MARTIN should be embarrassed
Beaulieu bails when he realizes Martin has an extra power bar.
