Really good tilt between 2 really tough dudes. I think Thornton landed a couple more, so I'm giving him the edge.
And I'm a Bruins fan, and I agree with GreatMurray. Watch these things with the sound off so crowd noise is gone and Jack is silenced, and you'll see how close this one and Z-McQ's fight was as well.
I try to review every fight, not just the scraps the B's are involved in. And it should be noted- the vast majority of announcers are homers, unless it's a national game. Not defending Edwards; just making an observation.
This was actually a tough fight to score. Although Thornton threw and landed more, most, if not all, his punches were to Neil's helmet. Thornton's right hand clearly shows you that. You don't cut your knuckles up by punches to the face. Neil had the icepack on his left from several punches to the helmetless head of Thornton. Based on damage done, much closer fight than the voting.
