@NYR DAL Grant Marshall
Voted winner:  Grant Marshall   (40.8%) - Voted rating: 7.2
Cairns and Marshall start pushing in front of the Rangers' net after a whistle and each drop the gloves and square off. They lunge in and each player grabs on with the left and throws with the right. After a couple of punches miss their mark, Marshall tags Cairns right on the chin. The punch rocks Cairns, but Cairns stays on his feet. Cairns responds with another right that Marshall slips and counters with a left to the side of Cairns' head/helmet. They do a 180 and Cairns tries a left that Marshall ducks under. Marshall now has his head buried in Cairns' midsection and has a hold of Cairns' leg trying for a take down. Cairns throws two uppercuts that make Marshall lift his head. He comes up swinging with a right that comes up short. Cairns then unloads with three rights that miss their mark and Marshall responds with three lefts that come up short. They somehow pull away from each other, but they're not ready for the fight to end. The linesmen try and stop it, but the fighters re-engage. Marshall immediately goes for Cairns' leg for the take down, but Cairns starts throwing right uppercuts and the linesmen come in before he can do any damage to Marshall.

Long square off. They spin for about 15 seconds before Cairns grabs on. Cairns throws four rights, two land to the back of Berube's head. Berube gets going with the right, missing one, then landing two. They spin and both land shots at the same time. They do the same thing again, but this time Berube's shot lands square dropping Cairns.

They meet up at center ice and Cairns has the rights going, the first one nailing Webb right to the face, followed by three more rights that looked to graze Webb. Webb answers back with two rights, all missing as he tries to stay on his feet from bad balance. He finally falls over with Cairns throwing a right that hits him on the shoulder, then the linesman come in to break it up.
