great toe-to-toe fight. I gave it a draw. Nothing better than Thornton throwing rights while Cote threw lefts. Not much defense here. both guys were very active.
one of the best fights so far in 07. Slight edge to Thornton
Great fight. Absolutely awesome. Sure there have been better, but Cote and Thornton just wailed on each other and neither gave in. I really don't see how anyone could give an edge to either guy. It was a very close fight, both ate some punches and both dished some out. A definite draw. Awesome to watch, though.
These guys know each other well. Thornton may have gotten a slight edge in blows landed but the fight was so good I have to score it a draw. I usually only vote draw if there really is no fight.
great fight sadly wasnt a ending to the fight i hate it when linesmen jump in a good fight like that also commentators were horrible acted like it was just an ordinary fight lol made it kinda boring looks better if u crank some alexisonfire and mute the commentators
Great fight. Thornton seemed to have Cote stunned, but he came back with some good lefts. No clear winner in a very entertaining bout. Gotta love the pat on the shoulder Thornton gave the kid ... solid draw.
Early candidate for fight of the year.
That may be fight of the year so far.
that's what a hockey fight should be like
What a great scrap between these two! Nice to see two guys not grabbing and hugging but instead just throwing punches. I can't give the edge to either guy but this has my vote for one of the best fights of the year so far!
draw, big punches. Even bigger chins.
Good fight !But not a very smart fight by either,these two both looked like Jeff Odgers.Good fighters are like good dancers anybody can go out there hang on with the left and throw rights from left field.Entertaining though.
When I watched this live I thought it was Thornton all the way, but upon further review Cote comes back like a warrior! He got him at the end and it completely made up for Thorntons strong start. Great Fight! Draw!!
they was toe to toe most of the fight one of the better fights all year
Great fight Draw
Wow what a fight
Great fight. toe to toe. Your splittin hairs looking for a loser in that one. Solid draw.
Pretty nice t-2-t fight.I say draw...no winner in the slugfest. Best fight of this year..no doubt.Thanx guys :).
Not sure but this could be fight of the year. Rock em sock em robots baby!
Old time FLYERS hockey! And add a win and points too!
My vote for Fight of the Year! Great bout. Reminds me of Probert v Domi. Can't call a winner - Draw.
Great fight...one of the best Bruins fights since PJ Stock was in town. I think this one was a draw though. Both guys just went all out.
Wow!!! I tried to count who landed more punches, but it seemed like most of the punches thrown by both guys landed. Solid Draw.
Best fight this year by far!!! 2 guys throwing and taking them. Draw. Definite FOTY so far, take a good one to unseat it IMO.
This should be one of the top 5 fights of the year.
A boring hugfest!!
Great fight!! best of 07 so far IMO, I gave it a draw what a beauty!
What a fantastic fight. Early FOTY candidate...will take an EXCELLENT bout to unseat these two. Thornton gets a few early....they trade constant punches....then Cote gets two really good lefts in at the end of the fight. Solid DRAW. No edge or winner here.
what a fight. Draw for me
AWESOME FIGHT, I am a huge Philly fan and as much as I want to say Cote won, it was a draw. First half was slight edge to Thornton probably because he looked like he was working harder or maybe because it looked like he was throwing more wildly when he was getting punched in the face all I know the first half was awesome. Then turned out the second half was awesome too! Cote started with the other hand I gave that half to him. In the end unreal fight when you have two deserving winners it equals to a draw. If there is going to be fight that tops this one this year it is going to be a dandy!
fight of the year so far. i haven't been impressed with cote at all this season or last, until this fight. hopefully he sticks with this style instead of hugging his opponent to death.
Great Toe-to-toe fight., Draw.
great toe-to-toe fight.. i think that best since P.J. Stock against Peat... i think that they both were som active that it was draw... btw who knows where i can download it ?
WOW I can't pick a winner out of that. Both were landing punch after punch, were still up at the end, and smiling. Impossible to pick a winner out of that. Draw all the way.
This is the definition of what a hockey fight is. No hugging, no pauses. Full of action. Not many fights can match up to this one
FOTY! Most punches I have seen eaten in a fight in a while, awesome fight. Draw.
Old School!!!!! One of the best fights of the year!!! Awesome by both in a draw
Best fight of the year
Just awesome. This is the gold standard for a great fight. Nice work boys.
I dont know how people says a win for thorn....is a completely a draw both landed no knockdown not drop.... DRAW and good hockey fight....
Best fight of the year so far!
Nice to see that kind of energy and stamina. I'm surprised they ever stopped. Neither wanted to give up. FOTY so far forsure unless your only criteria is how much blood they have to scrape off the ice.
This was their 1st NHL Fight. They fought 7 times in the AHL: Thorton with the Norfolk Admirals when they're affiliates with Chicago and Cote was with Phantoms
This was the best fight of the year. Draw
just a great fight, advantage, no one.
great bout...did u see thronton pat him on the shoulder after it...2 classy guys in a world class bout.
Those are two heavy weights landing bombs!!!! Gave it a draw,two big boys throwing hammers!!
A complete transformation from last year this team is not taking any “guff” from anyone. Thornton is a power house! Its great to see the power that the bruins are bringing to the table the season and to all the Flyers fans Patrice Bergeron hit will be avenged. just you wait and see! Jones is a coward.
Thornton is da winner
Almost a draw...the hugging started when Cote got staggered from all the punches he was blocking with his face. He started hugging to protect himself. Gotta give it to Thornton.
ROCKEM SOCKEM GREAT FIGHT, WIN FOR THORTON,BUT PROPS TO COTE FOR TAKEN SOME BOMBS AND STILL RETURNING FIRE
is it me or does thornton remind anyone else of Jay Miller? not very big but just throws 'em.
Lots of good punches .... thornton wins...but cote was respectable
good scrap jones aint getting no suspension if bereron wasent a puss
Good toe-to-toe slugfest! Thornton landed more punches than Cote did, but they both threw a lot which is how it's supposed to be done! We need to get back to the days of the "Big, Bad Bruins"..they routinely used to kick the crap out of the cheapshot broadstreet bullies...seems some things never change!
Not even close. Cote got two good shots in mid way thru the fight but after that not much more. Think some of you posters should try and view these fights in slow motion, then maybe you'll have a clue as to what you think you saw. Some of these comments in here are like listening to Jack call the fight, well, not quite that bad but you get my point. Thorton with yet another dominate win.
Thornton worked Cote over. Cote seems to have a George Chuvalo type chin.
I remember when Boston/Flyers games were brawls, now, not so much. "Right on the logo.." uhh great..
what a great fight. very close, but id give the edge to cote from the last two lefts he landed. could go either way tho.
Slugfest. Edge to Thornton.
edge thornton....sick fight...a 10
Fight Of The Year! These two have a history.
Great Fight!! A classic, no holds barred, old school, knuckles to noses fight. I'm impressed.
Wow!!! Fight of the year!!! Rock em sock em!! Cote can take a punch, cause as many as he took at the start, it looked like curtains for him!! Great fight!!
Damn good fight, Thornton with the win in this epic tilt.
Great bout, both willing and able- edge to Thornton.
Cote is lucky to be in piece
pretty good tilt
Thornton landed a little more than Cote did .Cote was good but the WIN goes to Thornton
Thorton was trying to drive his fist through Cote's skull. Awesome.
slight edge to THORTON .the ZEBRAS were dying to get in and do their job ( per Gary Betteann ) you could witness the change starting... from a man's game to watch to a TRENDY'S game to watch
great fight..love the pat on the back by thornton at the end
Thia was not as close as most of you are writing. Thornton landed many more good shots. Cote landed two near the end and that's about it, most of his others were on the helmet or the shoulder. Thornton landed 4-5 right on the button. Cote showed a lot in hanging in there, but this wasn't that close.
One of the best fight this season. The W to Thornton.
i wish i could give it to cote, but he got tangled up in the beginning and got caught with three unanswered rights. (ever so slight) edge thornton
It's great to see the Bruins are improving in all aspects of the game...win to Thornton
Thornton landed more punches here. Narrow win to Thornton in a great toe to toe fight.
A school ground fight, both fighters throwing punches with one hand and no attempt to box clever. Thanks though guys for a very entertaining fight!! Pity there was not more blood!!!! We love a bit of damage thrown in too.
announcer said it best rockem sockem robots just curious on how the hell did they both stay standing after that one both earned ther 5 min just for a rest
Thornton did a great job at pumping up his team and the home crowd here. Shawn was landing lots of the blows at the beginning when it seemed like Cote was missing.
Great fight. Not my favorite but still it was a good fight.
Slight win for Thornton in a great FOTY nominee. Both guys deserves props for just dipping their heads and throwing.
Great intense fight with both players opening up and just throwing the entire time. Shawn Thornton looked like a bigger version of PJ Stock in this scrap and even did the old PJ wave at the end. Edge/Win Shawn Thornton in a great scrape. Props to Riley Cote for hanging with the more experienced Thornton.
Good old time hockey fight, no dancing around and locking he other guy out--just grab ahold and let the punches fly. Best of the early season so far!
FANTASTIC !!!! WOW
Wow lost count on them punches. Slow motion was tough to count. Thorton by a nose. Got a lot of shots in early that landed. Great fight!!!!
Another Flyer gets his butt kicked. Total destruction!
GREAT FIGHT ... Good to see this former Norfolk Admiral doing well ... Give the edge to Thornton .... One of the best fights I've seen this year t2t ...
WOW! I give it to Thornton because of the first 30 punches they threw he landed a lot more.
Great go! Thornton with a slight edge.
GREAT FIGHT! Thorton by the slightest of margins.
Great fight.....both men stood their ground but Cote ate too many to be considered a draw. Thornton win.
Thas was a fight with a big F ! I almost lost my faith to good hockeyfights but this return it. Nice fight between two great fighter. Almost draw, but maybe Thornton get a slice edge. Couple hit more. Good fight anyway
Great fiight really close but I give Thornton the edge here he landed more.
Great bout, but most definitely Thornton.
What a great fight. One of the best in this season.
Great fight with two evenly matched foes. I give a slight edge to Thornton for landing more. Great fight though, both looked good.
What a scrap. FOTY so far. Win Thornton. C'mon you Flyers fans, admit it.
Great fight for Thornton
Great fight, go punches landed. Thornton with the edge for landing most shots
One of the best fights of the year so far.
Best fight of the year so far. That is what hockey fights are supposed to look like, no more of this dancin' crap. Credit to both fighters, slight edge to Thornton.
now thats a fight!
Thornton and Cote always have a nice fight whenever they meet Winner shawn
Good scrap. Lots of blows thrown. Slight edge to Thornton...//TJ
Cote sux and so does his Cryers
gotta give it to thornton
Watched the game Cote landed more great fight
great fight!!! after watching several times gotta go with slight edge Cote.I know Thorton stood'em up at one point, but Cote landed the harder punches.And also finished much stronger then Thorton....That said outstanding Scrap!!!
F the b's
Great fight. Slight edge Cote.
Draw Hate Biased Votes
By far the best fight of the season...........lets hope there is more to come!!!!
very good tilt, about time. two guys with history and not scared of each other. bring back the foil!!!
A regular slobber knocker!
Good stuff....I think that's the best scrap I've seen this year.
Suck me sideways...this was a gudun...finally!!! Worth the fukcin wait tho..
Early favorite for fight of the year. Both guys did well, Thortonmay have had a slight edge buttoo close to call.
That was fun to watch. It was all hitting and no blocking.....sweet
Wow. Amazing fight.
Cote sucks, but this is the best fight I've seen from him. Thornton didn't look like he minded taking Cote's punches one bit.
Thornton is just an idiot ans shows why the bruins lost their chance at the cup in 2012. You can win games in the regular season by playing like thugs but in the playoffs YOU LOSE IF ALL YOU CAN DO IS FIGHT. HaHa, I'm laughing at the Boston goons!
old time hockey fight! doesnt matter who won, great fight!!!!
Good fight. Decision belongs to Thornton.
two very good fighters right there, edge to Shawn "Dangles" Thornton
Thornton beat him like a rented mule.I have to give credit to Cote for taking the punches that were landing on his face and not going down.He did manage to get a few in himself but not near as many as Thornton.
Thornton gets the 'W' in a close one. Both guys came out flying, but Cote deserves some credit for taking a bunch and dishing at the same time.
Gotta get one to give one! great fight!
As I have said before there is NOBODY who takes Bigger punches in the SQUASH than Riley Cote............NOBODY!!!!!!
Fight of the year! even fight slight edge to cote. take one to give one. no blocking lol great
I love to read the comments....how many of you live in your parents basement.... Reading some of the junk is better than the fights themselves...
great fight, I give the edge to Thornton. People seem to forget, HE IS A LEFTHANDED fighter. He won that fight with his right hand and huge heart. Yes, these 2 do have a history.....great fight tho, but I give edge to Thornton.
cote only because Thornton thought he won at the end which giving he draw fight to cote for not being a pompous ass
cote won the fight clearly. he landed more hits and they were painful thornton landed some but also missed alot, then he waved his arms in the air like a little girl after it but he knew he lost he just didnt want to show it Cote won that bout
Thornton DESTROYED Cote. Cote didnt land one punch. Thornton landed atleast 5 good shots. Shawn Thornton was the clear winner.
