Okay, all you Bruins haters whining about the homers on this site, you are no better. Make an attempt at being somewhat objective if you have the mental capability to do so. This is a draw for no other reason than the refs stopping the fight because of the jersey over Orr's head.
Pepsi, you stupid imbecile, how do you figure Thorton planned to pull the jersey over Orr's head when they all wear the strap that prevents just that? Oh, let me guess, Thorton undid it first while hugging Orr?? You are a complete moron to even post crap like that. I'd love to put you out on the ice in the middle of those two just to watch them beat you into the ice, and yes they would beat you into the ice because they would disregard the code.
They drop the gloves right after a goal by Boston. Each trade a few rights, Thorton gets Orr's helmet off, and lands a solid shot. Orr's jersey gets pulled over his head. Seemed to me, Thorton had class and told the linesman to come in.
I credit Thornton for fighting with class, he could have killed Orr w/ the jersey over his head. It could be seen as a draw, but ill give Thornton the edge for landing the best punch of a short fight.
big orr fan here who also thought it was real BIG of thorton to call on ref to break it up ...until i read pepsis comment. got me thinking and now im not sure either way. all i do know is it looked like it was gonna be a good fight until the jersey went up. so im def. looking forward to the next orr thorton fight!
