I was licking my chops when I saw who fought this evening...what a treat !
Two of my favorite warriors here,
Each with a good grip and looking for an opening,
Thornton was the busier of the two, trying to work his way to the inside,
Went back and forth with no major damage,
Gotta love the class of Thornton when the jersey was over Orr's head,
Good one boys... Draw.
Orr didnt land a shot ,Thornton with the win I sure cant give it a 6 tho except i guess if you factor in the excitement of the 2 combatants
Thornton had the perfect hold of orrs sweater
These 2 guy are Tough SOB's as a matter of fact I think 2 of the very toughest and neither is even big for a heavyweight...Nice to see Colton back scrappin and getting that first one over with....No connection here of face on ice...Yes Parros throws Pillows :) and did not knock him out with A PUNCH
Thornton is such a smart technical fighter now. He used the same method he did against Boogaard last year. He knows Orr isn't the type of guy he should trade shots with so he grapples and ties up Orr's right arm and picks his spots to sneak a few good shots in. Win Thornton in a so so bout. Smart move. Thornton is tougher than most but not all, but he's smarter than the rest!
Smart strategy by Thornton, not to try and trade with Orr, and to tie him up and land better shots. Orr wasn't able to get off and took a few more from Thornton, who took the win. This fight, as usual, was able to rally the Bruins to come back and dominate the game. Thornton's role on the team can't be underestimated.
