It was good to see Thornton get some work in here after all the pansies from Moroneal wouldn't oblidge him.... Just think, if that game was played there, someone would have called (911) and had the Mount-Me's try to arrest Chara again... I thought Erskine landed more, the last one by Thorton did catch him, but I see draw here.
I'm a Bruin fan, but Erskine won this one.
To boldbilly, you are just a goof. Don't EVER compare Subban to Chara. I see Prust went to the Komasarik school of how to fight Lucic as well. Montreal players do not need to fight. But if you aren't going to back it up, don't pull all that cheap ****. At least if a Bruin pulls a Cooke on someone, he'll take his lumps. The way Chara responded is the way a true leader and captain should. But if you are a Montreal fan, you would have no idea of what I'm talking about. If you have a broken orbital bone, DON'T play the game that way. And if you do play that way, DON'T whine about a broken orbital bone. Can't have it both ways.
Watching it live at the arena I thought thronton dropped Erskine for a comeback win, but the last punch did not land and Erskine slipped (which is not that unusual for him) to the ice. Anyway, Erskine should have let Volpatti take the fight -- as that is why Volpatti skated out for the draw.
Thornton has to get the win, as he landed the most visible shot that ended the fight, but it wasn't a true KO shot. He threw a hard right that got Erskine's attention and caused him to fall backwards. Erskine landed two good right hands as well, but Thornton steadied himself and earned a nice comeback win.
