Other Penalties: Kane received a minor and misconduct for instigating a fight; Chara a minor for elbowing.
Chara Won hands down
People who call Z a goon really don't have a clue at all! Imagine what he could do IF he actually went into goon mode! How many people he could hurt even at 42 yrs old. As far as this fight goes? I know why Kane was upset, he doesn't have the same view as we do & you could clearly see that yes! He took an elbow to the face, but it wasn't Z's fault. Kane actually was reaching for the puck & he ran into Z's elbow, moreso than Z gave him an elbow. The other thing is? In comparison to size, reach & weight? How else would Kane be able to get his own cheapshots in if he didn't do it when Chara wasn't looking. Kane didn't care if his punches were clean or not! He wanted to rip Chara's head off, but knew he wouldn't be able to do it face on! Z's a big boy & one of the strongest & most fit athletes in sports EVER! You gonna tangle with this guy? You better be at least 6 5" 240! Most knew once Z got back up Kane was in deep trouble. Even Kane knew that!
Used to respect Kane .. no longer .... jumps Chara and gets his ass kicked by big Z. Would like to see round 2
The commentary only adds to the awesomeness of this fight too. Don’t mess with Chara or he’ll mess you up.
wrong guy to go after
Chara won by shear size alone. Kane is a good fighter and much better technique. Not many guys get things done with big Z. I’d really like to see a Kane/Reaves fight, anyone else?
What a dirty elbow by Chara...Bruins doing what Bruins do best. Hopefully he gets a suspension.
Chara takes care of business after getting attacked from behind, Kane does the smart thing and hides or he would have looked like Koci. Was a cheap elbow from Chara though which probably cut Kane open, and in this NHL, he will probably have a phone call meeting tomorrow. Kyleg, Kane vs Reaves? Kane wouldn't last 10 seconds. The one i would like to see is Reaves and Chara.
You have to be a special kind of delusional to think Kane won that fight.
The old man kicked Kanes ass. Chara had the reach pounding him in the head.
Jack Edwards is the worst commentator around. His bias his hilarious.
Kind of a nothing fight, great to see Chara fight again though.
Hardly a fight... if a fight actually did occur Chara would have murdered kane
It's tempting to vote for Kane just because Jack Edwards is such a clown. Chara won but he didn't land anything of note. The only good shot of the whole thing was the Chara elbow which probably should have been a penalty. The fight was horrible.
Tale of 2 halves, but reiterates that no fight with Z can be balanced.
For someone who got jumped and had a huge advantage, Chara really let him off easy. Win for the big man
Kane bitch, Chara not really elbowing as he drove his whole arm and shoulder into him. Chara got in a good lick once he got the helmet off and cut up Kane's nose. If you think Chara elbowed Kane's nose open please stop watching hockey and hockey fights and just draw with crayons the things you imagined happened.
Chara is about to turn 42! Most players that age are coasting through charity games. Z bounced up after getting jumped. Amazing!
Kane gutless? Kane got a dirty elbow to the face which drew blood, Kane is one tough guy if he gets up from that and goes after the ancient 6’9 gorilla on skates
Glad to see Chara get up and dominate Kane, who foolishly was offended by two clean hits!
Chara with two dirty elbows. Asking for someone to punch him. Don’t tell me it was dirty how Kane started it. What other player is standing up for themselves when a giant is throwing cheap shot elbows. The commentator is so biased I almost couldn’t finish watching. No win for Chara. He didn’t land a punch. No win for Kane. Just a draw. Not a Sharks fan, just a fan of hockey.
Chara’s “fighting” ability basically comes down to throwing two cheap elbows to the head and then standing tall and punching over the top. Wow so impressive. Well it certainly was to that joke of an announcing squad. What clowns.
Is everyone on this thread high? No significant shots by Chara? He let up and yet still teed up on Kane. Kane tried to get the jump like he was doing all game and paid for it. His nose was leaking and he had a cut under his eye. Chara connected with quite a few at the end while Kane was holding on to dear life
Kane was looking to get smacked around. Big Z handled his business.
Chara & the bruins are fucken garbage! Typical cheap shots! An elbow to the face then act like it’s okay. Those that are wooing for chara are the stupid Boston fans. No wonder you’re the most hated city for sports.
I agree with folks, Jack Edwards bias is painful. I wont give a B a fight if not warranted. My take. Kane 1) was trying to get something going. That's the sentiment on the Sharks right now, that they are getting pushed around. hence, the Mike Haley waiver pick up. So Kane was aprtly pushing back on his bouncing off the big guy like a rag doll. He suckered him, pretty much par for the course with Evander. Chara was pizzed, you could see it. Kane was just trying to do his best to lock Zeno up and not take some mighty round houses. Looks like Chara did get some half-swing noogs in there. Got to give it to ZC though, even as it wasnt the most feeirce battle. Too bad Joe Thornton did not join the fun, always good to watch him go. Maybe slap Marshie around lol
Chara takes cheap shots so often he makes them look totally normal... Kane bounced back from not one, but two cheap shots.. then bounced the 6’9 Boston monkey. After that Chara came back to play grab and tickle while giving Kane a nice reach over. For the idiot who said the punches split Kane, watch the video, get glasses, watch video again. Then tell me where Kane’s cuts came from. Spoiler, it wasn’t the punches
Kane jumps Chara, Kane takes a beating, not a good move Kane
kane was frustrated most of the game trying to get his team going he wanted a fight but not with chara
Typical Kane....what a shame, he had a chance to be a cult hero after his one puch KO of Glass Jaw Cook but he’s just morphed into a thug jumping the tough guys and challenging non-fighters.
Geez Edwards is awful. Kane gets a 2 for being dumb enough to jump Chara. Chara gets 6 for pounding the crap out of Kane. Edwards gets a ZERO for being a moron. Edwards found Kane to be 'disappointing'....had Kane been a Bruin doing exactly the same thing, idiot Edwards would have reincarnated him as a mixture of Terry O'Reilly and Jesus!
Chara's elbow to Kane's head was a cheap shot. I'm not a fan of Kane who's no angel himself but Chara gives cheap shots regularly enough and kudos to Kane for standing up for himself. It's too bad he didn't get a couple of good shots into Chara's mug when he had the chance. Yes Kane jumped him but Chara relies on his size and strength to intimidate opponents who are reluctant to retaliate when he delivers his cheap shots. When you play Boston you need a guy like Reeves on your team to take protect your players especially from Chara.
Kane would have died if reff didn’t get in there.
whatever you think about Chara, or the Bruins, Chara never does stuff that hurts his own team. contrast this with Kane, who cost the Sharks 2 points in the last game, and did nothing to help last night. PS, despite his size, Chara is a notoriously bad fighter, while Kane is probably the 1st or 2nd best fighter currently still playing. still a fairly clear W for Chara.
Confucius say, Kane who wake up sleeping giant, going to get smacked upside head... #33
All these championships up here in Boston really have brought the hate to a new level. First of all, that was clearly not an elbow to Kane's noggin' that preceded his ill advised attack on Chara. Those of you who think it was okay for Kane to punch away at Chara while he was still down on the ice fall in the same category as Kane, gutless cowards, deserving the same beatdown Kane got after Chara got up.
Kane needs to understand "reach advantage." Chara wailed on him at will.
Kane makes the mistake of going after Chara with his back turned (he'd already turned him down earlier on in the game in favor of jumping Kuraly), and gets off relatively easy for having woken up the angry old grizzly bear. Still a decisive win for Chara.
A decent fight amongst the myriad of GARBAGE fights these days. Chara made Kane his son and whooped his ass for stepping out of line. Size was the major factor, though. Kane is easily the toughest middleweight in the league. Yes, he would kick Tom Wilson's ass
Chara is an absolute goon! These damn contaminators sound like a bunch of bumbling idiots! Where the hell do they find jackasses like this? If I was a Boston fan, I'd be embarrassed of these idiots! Gave Chara the win, just because he had the best position and a 6" reach difference on Kane. These refs are shit, by the way!
Loved to see Evander Kane go at Chara the whole game, not a bad fight either
Lol kane got lit up by big Z
Chara victory, don't poke the bear
Kane doing what he does best, picking his spot ...... then gets owned, too bad Chara didn’t end his career
Lost all respect for Kane. Jumped Chara from behind and still lost the fight.
Would be really PO'ed if I was Sharks management. Kane looked stoned the whole game. Looked for a fight the whole game. Jumped the wrong guy. Kane was totally dominated by Chara.
I normally don't like to see Chara win at anything, but beating Kane would be an exception. However, not much of consequence landed - so yeah, Chara wins, but not in a meaningful way. BTW, be aware that when Jack E is commentating...turn off the audio.
EK’s always been a whiny little bitch! Just ask Big Buf....Lucky Chara didn’t kill him. Got off pretty easy. Evander clearly not living up to the legend of the name
Kane is such a wuss. Chara supplied the knuckle sandwich. Chara in total, complete, absolute domination.
Chara deserves a suspension for the high hit on Kane. But the NHL Refs never call a penalty when Kane is involved. Just watching????? The guts Kane showed was enough to win this fight against someone much bigger. Look at the earlier fight in the game, and there is no reason for Kane to pick up an extra penalty in that one. The NHL uses a Ref with 93 whole games of experience in the rematch of last weeks game when the Refs sent an apology to the Sharks because they screwed up. What a joke!
I dont know what the Bruins announcer was smoking but Chara looked like he could only get off a couple love taps. Kane was out of his league but at least he stood up for a dirty ass hit. All together weak fight
Draw. Chara got rag dolled at the start and Kane didnt do much after. Chara is the most overrated fighter in the league, not sure he landed anything and the big buffoon, Edwards, made it sound like he landed clear bombs
Piece of shit goon Haley goes after and old guy with concussion history. At least Backes was very good player for most of his career. Still a shitload better player than Haley. Haley pulled the same shit last year and McQuaid force fed him knuckles. Kane Is an idiot. What the fuck did he expect from Chara after the cross check on him. The pussy jumped him from behind and hit him when he was down. Refs should have let it go longer
W-Chara but props to Kane for throwing the giant down to the ice like he was a sack of potatoes.
So Kane tries to hit Chara, Chara sidesteps and Kane goes down like a sack of potatoes. Then they collide again and Kane's head bounces off of Chara's shoulder because of a height difference. Kane proceeds to punch Chara while Chara is down. Chara gets up and pummels Kane. Naturally, what some people take away from this is Chara should be suspended. Are you delusional? And btw, Jack Edwards is extremely fun to listen to. For perspective, NBC Sports California called Kane courageous as he was hitting Chara while Chara was down.
Kane can’t even do a stand up fight. He’s jumping guys from behind now
Edwards is such trash!!!! As for the fight, Kane, after getting the elbow, jumps Chara from behind. Chara gets back up and throws several half hearted punches on Kane. Sorry, Chara just isn't a very good fighter, he's just so big you can't reach him. Kane is also trash. Chara and a 3
Kane received a total beat down! Don't mess with the big boys...
Kane is lucky the refs jumped in.
Chara uses his size and reach to pull out the win. Nice to see the emotion and hatred in this game.
I never liked Kane as a player and he shows his true colors yet again and jumps Chara from behind after a clean hit. Chara got up and Kane wanted nothing to do with him and held on. Not a Chara fan either but Kane is a spot picker . This time he got owned.
Didn't look like an elbow to start; Chara caught him with most of his arm. Kane jumps him from behind, only lands hits while the giant is down, still loses decisively, and guys are still arguing here he's one of the best?
Naturally, NESN wouldn't show any replay that would put a Bruin in a bad light (they're an EMBARRASSMENT to New England), but has anyone seen an angle that will determine if it was a head-hit or not?
Hard to concentrate on the fight when I can’t stop laughing at tool bag Jackass Edwards commentating....
Wow. 6 blind fans voted for Kane.
Kane is a chump. Got what he deserved.
the only thing that Saved Kane in this fight was Chara Noticing the BLM necklace Kane was wearing.... and markshark1977 Chara Pounded your dad after the game... dont be Ashamed of him... he's Still yer Dad...
And how'd ya think that worked Old Grouch'?? (………."When you play Boston you need a guy like Reeves on your team to take protect your players especially from Chara."). MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I laugh my butt off every time I hear posters here complaining about Jack and Brick. They're COMMENTATORS! They don't play the game. Of course we realize that commentators for all other NHL teams show absolutely no partiality for their home teams...none. Only exists in Boston. Kane jumps Chara and gets a semi-beating. There was no elbow by Chara and the idiot who said that Chara is a dirty player is...well, he's an idiot.
No winner here, not one meaningful blow landed, mostly a wrestling match. If you're a wrestling fan, Chara got the better of it, barely.
Kane is an idiot. He complains that the Chara hit was to his head. It couldn't have hit him in the head, his own arm and glove where above Chara's shoulder keeping Chara from making contact to the head. Then, he thinks the smart thing is to pick a fight with someone Chara's size with a foot reach advantage!! Ergo, Idiot!
Referee ended the fight too early. Kane was unable to land punches after taking Chara down early. Chara was able to get up quickly and dominate the rest of the tilt.
