Brian McGrattan clear win Fun 
8
After an Ottawa goal Godard came right across the face-off circle to challenge McGrattan.

They drop the gloves and square off. McGrattan comes in missing a right as they lock up. They come in and exchange rights with none connecting. Godard then lands a body shot and McGrattan lands a headshot. They keep the exchange up with McGrattan landing the only punches. They then both miss a right but McGrattan comes out landing a big one that staggered Godard. They then both landed a good shot at the same time. Again they started an exchange with McGrattan landing the only head shots again. They again throw a series of right with one landing by McGrattan. They both then throw a big right missing it and McGrattan counters Godard with a bomb that almost dropped Godard. McGrattan lands some as Godard is bent down. They then stand off and the linesmen come in.

Very good fight between these two McGrattan clearly landed more, better and the cleaner shots. Godard stood in there but it looked to be a clear win to McGrattan in my eyes.

Brian McGrattan and Eric Godard shed the mitts for the third time on the season early in the first frame. They square each other up and McGrattan misses a right as they get a grip with the left. They both go over the top with two rights apiece, back and forth. Godard landing one and McGrattan landing one as well. Godard then lands two rights from underneath but McGrattan counters with a good connecting right. Then Godard lands a right before missing a right as McGrattan lands a right of his own. Godard misses two more rights and McGrattan misses an overhand right. Godard then misses a right from underneath and then misses another right as McGrattan connects on a right. They pause, McGrattan misses jersey jab and a right over the top before Godard misses a right. Then McGrattan lands a right which knocks Godard off balance but Godard is able to stay on his skates. Godard pauses and comes back with landing jersey jab and right. McGrattan misses a right while Godard misses a right and they pause. Then Godard misses a right and McGrattan connects on a right as his helmet comes off. Godard misses a right from underneath before McGrattan counters with a missing over the top right. They pause and McGrattan connects with two jersey jabs as Godard attempts to shake his elbow pad off, then McGrattan lands a right. Godard counters with a missing right and then McGrattan misses an overhand right. They pause and Godard finally shakes his elbow pad off before missing a right. Then Godard throws three jersey jabs and lands two before missing an overhand right. Godrad misses a jersey jab and McGrattan misses a right, then Godard misses an over the top right. McGrattan counters with a right from underneath that buckles Godard and McGrattan lands a right as Godard struggles to stay up. Godard recovers, lands a jersey jab, and then both McGrattan and Godard let the referees step in and stop the fight. Good for these two as their previous two were. McGrattan earns the win in this fight for landing better than Godard.

Brian McGrattan vs Eric Godard (Rd IV) / Dec 23, 2005

These two are lined up at opposite sides of the face off circle and after the puck is dropped Godard makes his way over to McGrattan. They drop the gloves and play is halted, these two like to get things going quickly and this one was no different. McGrattan grabbed on and threw a right that looked to possibly clip Godard but it was difficult to see, Godard then came back with a right that landed just below McGrattan's ear.

Both guys then threw two straight right hands each with Godard landing to the top of McGrattan's helmet as he got the better of the early exchange. McGrattan then started working the jab in which he landed two, Godard responded with two right hands to the ribs of McGrattan who came back with a good right to the side of Godard's helmet. Godard hit back with a good right of his own and started working the body once more with a shot to the liver and an uppercut to the ribs.

McGrattan then threw a wild right that intially missed but he looked to catch Godard with an elbow as he pulled back. McGrattan then threw another right that fell short and both guys paused for a second or two. McGrattan then got things going again with a jab and right cross with both connecting, Godard then tossed a right back at McGrattan and nearly threw himself off balance in doing so. Godard composed himself and gave McGrattan a face wash with his jersey.

Both guys then landed with the rights with McGrattan having the better of the exchange. Godard then fell short as he tried to follow up and McGrattan was able to land another right to the side of Godard's helmet. McGrattan then lost his helmet and Godard landed another shot to the ribs and McGrattan landed another right this time to the side of Godard's head. Both guys then paused for a moment and Godard tried to shake his elbow pad off.

McGrattan then hit Godard with a glancing jab but missed as he threw a right cross. Godard came back with a wild right that missed high and McGrattan looked to possibly land with a right but it was difficult to make out. Godard then successfully shook his elbow pad off and started working the jab, landing two. Both guys then missed with one wild right hand each and McGrattan was able to follow up but fell just short.

Godard lost his balance slightly and McGrattan landed a right to the back of his head as Godard found his feet. Godard got his bearings back and got in one last jersey jab before the officials decided to step in and end this one.

This was a good fight, both guys landed good punches. McGrattan slightly edged this one with a few more punches landing, this the third fight these two have had and probably the best one so far.

Narrow win McGrattan.

This was another fight between the men with sustained action. McGrattan missed several punches and landed a solid right. Godard missed a blow and landed an average shot. He landed a couple of body punches. Brian missed a few blows and landed a partial connect. Eric landed a decent punch and two body blows.

Godard missed a few shots and landed a solid shot. He landed an average blow. McGrattan missed a punch and landed a pretty good shot. He landed an average blow and a solid connect. He missed a couple of punches and landed a solid shot. Eric landed a body punch and missed several shots. He landed a partial connect. Brian missed a blow, landed a solid punch, and landed a partial connect. The refs stopped the fight.

I rate this as a narrow win for McGrattan. He landed more punches to the head and with better overall pop. Godard was very competitive and landed several effective shots of his own. Brian came on strong down the stretch to secure the win.

On first viewing it looked like a McGrattan win, but watching it over and over showed that some of McGrattan's seemingly big shots actually just grazed and hit shoulder pads. Still an amazing toe to toe fight. Fun stuff!

A really good fight. It's not toe to toe, but every punch thrown is a bomb. I don't think either one really had an advantage, though.

This is round 3...every time the Sens and Isles have played this year they've fought. McGrattan lands the better shots and gets the edge here. Godard's potent jersey jab kept him in the fight and prevented this from being a McGrattan rout.

Yet another solid draw. Edges in this fight could really go either way as both landed some great shots.

Good fight, both guys throwing bombs. McGrattan seems to hit Godard with the biggest punch in this fight.

I agree with huffer's review, after watching it in slow-mo those McGrattan's big shots didn't really land. I think they landed about the same here.

They didn't even line up beside each other at the face off, but as soon as the puck was dropped they came together and dropped the gloves. Both guys exchanged solid rights from start to finish.

Great heavyweight fight. Both fighters were very active and were landing. McGrattan lands a nice bomb at the end giving him the edge, but it looked like a draw up to that point.

Narrow win for mcgrattan as they had about the same amount of facial punches, marginally-connecting punches and jerseyjabs. But mcgrattan scores with a big-bomb at the end that sent godard to a knee and also stifled him from fighting further.

This is a really good HW fight. Both men are throw fast and hard. McGrattan seems to get the better of the exchanges in a close fight. Narrow win McGrattan.

Very good fight as the two go back and forth trading right handed bombs and stiff jersey jabs, both land a lot of shots but McGratton lands a bit more and a bit better to earn a hard fought narrow win.
