Other Penalties: Thornton received a crosschecking.
While Thornton is much bigger, remember that Drew Doughty was in the media talking about how they wanted to knock the Sharks out of the playoffs before they even start. As the captain, Jumbo probably felt it was his job to shut Doughty up, or at least show him how tough the Sharks were gonna be in these 2 games. It wasn't a cheap win, it was doing exactly what the team needed.
Where did that come from? An easy win for Thornton, but he is about a foot taller.
Thornton doesn't fight much anymore and Doughty never fights, but the outcome is hardly surprising. Doughty eats a diet of lefts.
Back in his salad days, Jumbo Joe could throw quite effectively. He became the "player who was too valuable to fight" (see Chara, Zdeno). And justifiably so. But he's still got it- at least against people a weight class below him.
Total domination by Thornton - thats about the only thing he has won so far. Not a great leader on his team if this is his only claim to fame so far. Total loser to pick a fight with a guy much much smaller. Gutless move.
That Wasn't a Fight, That was Rape...J T with the Win
Good to see big Joe can throw them for the win.Next time try someone a little bigger.Try Parros he`s out there right.
Last time I saw Thornton fight Eric Lindros beat the piss out of him.
Thornton is a big man and he threw those lefts well. A win for him, he really should do this more.
The inexperienced Doughty could not get loose and Joe fed him with few lefts. No damage but a couple of punches connected.
1st doughty's nhl fight..or beating...big joe used to be good at fighting earlier in his career but he doesnt do it anymore.he beat doughty like a coat on a hanger here though
Win for Thornton; should be an interesting somewhat meaningless game on Saturday.
Easy, homers. I see it is the first time all year you get to s*ck Joey's d*ck.
Thorton is a great at fighting guys out of his weight class, give Doughty props, cant give either of them the win
draw super star fight
Without a doubt JT won the fight, but props to DD for sticking up for himself (for JT's crosscheck to the grill,) and not hiding behind another KIngs, (who probably would have gotten their ass kicked as well.) As a Kings fan that feeble display of pugilism in all three fights was a bit embarrassing. Would have been different if they had won the game, but couldn't even manage that. Someone brought up DD comments to the media regarding knocking SJ out of the playoffs?? What is he supposed to say; we intend to lose to SJ hence losing home ice or standing? It's called motivation.
another how was your flight and family
Joe Thornton with the decisive victory but it could have been so much more interesting if he knew how to create some space to those left hand bombs.
Who was the shark that stopped the puck from the bench?
Thornton rains lefts all over the Human Mop... He could have picked him up and dusted the boards at the Kings bench... The most active thing Doughty did was after the fact, when he apparently thought he was in a mosh pit and did a couple hair flips...
Those looked like some Heavy Handed Lefts St Thomas 1 London O
Big Joe takes this one.
Easy win for Thorton These announcers are TERRIBLE! How can you people in LA listen to them for 80+ games a season?
No contest, win for Thornton
Joe feeds Doughty the lefts! Doughty didn't land a single punch.
Big Joe with the TKO! The stripes had to interfere to stop this one sided bout, good to see Joe ready for the playoffs.
Joe destroys Doughty in this one.Joe is a big strong man and can toss them!
thornton gets the win in this fight.
I rarely if ever comment on fights or how they are scored, you guys know way more about it than I ever would, but I can't believe that anyone could score this fight as a win for Doughty.
wow, Joe kicked his ass........
Thorton with an easy win. I'm glad he went after some one his own size oops or 6" shorter. Thorton won easy but the playoffs are coming up and Thorton will shrink and the Sharks will get eliminated in 6 by some one
Thornton rarely fights at all...so when he does he beats up a midget...nice Joe. You won...I'm not sure what you won but you won.
Jumbo Joe with the nice lefts...Doughty has no idea what he is doing at all...
hey drew, when you engage into a fight the point is to punch the opponent face and not just eating lefts while not fireing back!!!!!
Joe Thornton a true winner in this scarp. Drew Doughty was just hanging on toward the end. Doughty felt overmatched very quickly.
Thornton whopped some butt!
Thornton throwing lefts, Doughty trying to survive. Thornton win. I'ts funny to see the Kings fans cheer like Doughty won. hahahaha
Jim Fox is such an idiot. "Drew Doughty doesn't scrap that often." It was his first fight in FOUR YEARS YOU IDIOT. The only thing that fat boy runs on a consistent basis is his mouth. Loved seeing Thornton pummel him. Unsurprisingly Doughty kept his fat mouth shut for the rest of the game.
Have to admire Doughty willing to get in there, but having your first go with a guy like Thornton is pretty daunting. Add to the fact that he didn't get off as many punches, and it's an easy decision for Jumbo Joe.
superstar fights! XD
Drew Barrymore gets owned
Not really a fair fight, but was happy to see Thorton throw the lefts and stand up for his teammates. Thorton won over an unlikely opponent.
lol whoever voted that this was a "draw" is obviously a mad kings fan, haha. And just because your player doesnt know how to fight doesnt mean the other guy is a "spot picker" (joe's first fight in a few years, definitely not a spot picker). It's hockey, fights happen, and sometimes you lose! Hahaha, yeah, I hope Joe does act this tough in the playoffs too cause thats how you win games, you have to be tough! Joe kicked some ass this fight its good to see.
All Jumbo Joe.
Easy win for Jumbo.
good bout doughty way above his head thinking he can beat jumbo joe
How anyone could vote for anything other than a dominant win is beyond me. Doughty in his first pro fight versus Thornton who isn't a stranger to a fight but seldom does so. Doughty was schooled and abused. Domination for Thornton in this battle. Doughty needs some lessons in self-defense.
Doughty's an idiot, nothing new, he's on a team of idiots. Awesome fight! Great to see Jumbo fighting. Love it!!!!!!
Thornton put on a whoopin!!!!
Epic battle, but Thornton dominated!
NICE JOB JOE....actually never seen him fight
biggest pussy in the league is Joe Thornton .a has been that never was ....
yeah doughty likes to play tough but cant fight, thorton will choke again first round lol
Doughty won this fight because he stood up to Thornton. Good show.
Thornton whooped him
big bird wins this one, but i look forward to watching the sharks choke away another playoff season.
All Jumbo Joe -- Doughty does not want to see a left for some time
What the hell is this Joe? Another Kevin Bieksa, another spot picker. I hope you act this tough in the playoffs. I hope when this happens to Marleau again you'll step in.
Jumbo Joe works over DD
Thornton is 4 inches taller, and 50 lbs heavier. Yet he's the one who ended up with a bloody lip. I give Daughty the win on principle.
Jagoff Joe picking another easy spot. Cheap win Jagoff.
