The video is up on youtube. Ott takes a run at Michalek and Thornton gives Ott a big shove and gets in his grill big time. Finally after enough shoving Ott throws a gloved punch before a scrum breaks out against the boards. Joe gets a hold of Ott and starts unleashing lefts as Ott cowers....Win Thornton. Gotta love the heart shown by Thornton, watch out for the Sharks in the playoffs.
I'm a B's fan first and foremost. seeing Thornton and McClaren still pisses me off to no end, in San Jose. Thornton should do this 4-5 times a year no doubt, but he is too valuable. this was the problem in Boston. Everyone wanted him to be Cam Neely which is impossible. But lets cut to the chase: his fighting days ended in juniors when he was attacked once a game. They ended in the NHL when Lindros broke his face about 5 years ago. I'm a huge fan of Big Joe, and that is what a leader does. Once the B's get bounced by the Habs I'll be rooting for the Sharks from the east coast. And by the way OTT GOT PUNKED!
HAHA Big joe stepped up for Michalek. For everyone that isnt a Shark fan or know about Thornton in the past he will throw them when he has to. That shows true leader ship. And why was ott so scared? Supposed to be there fighter and all what a ***. He tried socker punching big Joe and then got it handed to him.
Joe absolutely fed Ott his lunch. Ott ran Milan on the boards and jumped when he hit him for the charge. Joe came over started cross checking him and when Ott looked up (and I stress up) he had the fear of god in him. Joe was just talking to him at the time until Murray and a couple other guys ended up in a big group. Ott throws the first punch but only after everyone surrounds them and runs interference. Ott is a Wuss. After he throws his one punch Joe grabs him and just pounds on his head and face for a while. Great fight for Joe sticking up for his teammates like that.
xD Whew. Ott got his as s handed to him this time. Plain and simple, Ott got beat pretty bad. But props to Steve for still ending that fight with his sadistic smile he gets every time he gets into a scrap. Win to Thornton, definatly
