1 Pd 2:37
@FLA BOS Colton Orr
Voted winner:  Eric Cairns   (66.7%) - Voted rating: 8.3
They drop the gloves near center ice and square off. Orr leads with a couple of rights, which come up short. Cairns retaliates with about eleven rights, with probably half landing, some good ones too, one knocking the helmet off of Orr. During the barrage Orr looks to have his right caught up in his jersey, but finally manages to get in tight and gets a better position on Cairns and starts landing some rights. He lands a few good ones, but then Cairns unleashes some more rights with one landing square to Orr's chin which almost put him down. Orr comes back and lands three or four rights, but they're both exhausted at this point and the linesmen come in.

This one starts by center ice. Both guys drop the mits and square off. After a nice square off McGrattan grabs on with his left. McGrattan gets things started with a nice left jersey-jab. He tries to follow that up with a right hand, but misses over the top. Cairns answers that with a nice right hand to the side of the face. Cairns then throws another right hand that hits the top of McGrattan's helmet. McGrattan throws a left hand that may have landed. Cairns throws a right that comes up short. McGrattan follows with a right, but Cairns ducks it and throws a right that looks to catch the helmet. McGrattan then throws a right which misses over the top. McGrattan gets in 2-3 jersey-jabs and then is hit with a left jersey-jab by Cairns which knocks his helmet off. Cairns throws three more left jersey-jabs and then McGrattan attemps a right hand, but it is blocked by Cairns' left arm. Cairns attempts a big left, but misses and McGrattan quickly answers with a right, but also misses. Cairns then throws another right which lands nicely. McGrattan then gets in a nice jersey-jab which puts Cairns off-balance. With Cairns off-balance McGrattan throws a right hand, but it doesn't look to land as Cairns falls to the ice.
