Where I come from we call that a "pubestache". The term is usually reserved for teenagers though.

Posted by upyours on January 01, 2010 at 11:22 PM

Carcillo actually drops the gloves with somebody that will punch back. Thornton slips....Carcillo lives....end of story.

Posted by salmon dog on January 07, 2010 at 05:48 PM

That is not worthy of being called a fight. One punch thrown, doesn't land and guy falls down...WOW! Embarassing and then Carcillo salutes crowd?? For what? By the way, dude's kind of homely...should try growing full beard.

Posted by Pops Ryan on January 02, 2010 at 01:27 AM

when one guy slips, its pretty much over...unless your fighting a guy who keeps throwing ie Boogard, Carkner. In any event, Thornton is not really a big puncher. Carcillo still picks his opponents. Saw him decline Brashear's invitation the other night. He and Richards dont have big enough balls for a ping pong game.

Posted by brianamoro on January 04, 2010 at 07:36 PM

looked like thornton fell more than anything else wish this had gone longer

Posted by bruins rule on January 01, 2010 at 02:27 PM

pretty quick fight.first fight in a winter classic hockey game.

Posted by 77bruin on February 27, 2010 at 04:51 PM

I think Thorton lost an edge.

Posted by hal29 on January 01, 2010 at 05:07 PM

started off as a boring fight, then thornton lands a nice shot to carcillo and then carcillo comes back and lands a shot to thornton. carcillo gets a slight edge but definetly not a domination by carcillo like some of you bone heads think. definetly not a tko by carcillo,thornton got right back up as punch didn't do any damage, more or less caught thornton off guard as all carcillo was doing most of the fight was holding on as thornton was trying to get free. but like i said definetly not a domination as carcillo didn't dominate you can't dominate by one punch and definetly not a tko!! but none the less win for carcillo in a boring not much action fight. thornton definetly didn't get his ass kicked and there is a reason for sweet caroline, but your to much of an ignorant douchebag!!!! hey muskokadangler don't be such a homer and over exagerate a fight by one little punch, notice how quick thornton got up. called it as i see it, but then again i'm probably not a ps3 hockey freak like you and get all excited on a laim fight, i actually played real hockey and know a good fight when i see one and i won't jerk off to one punch like you even if it was thornton won. i would still say it was a boring fight. come back to reality. hey thornton can't win them all. i'm sure they will meet again. oh and i did admit carcillo won so yeah i wasn't being a homer. just being realistic

Posted by Hendo67 on January 02, 2010 at 12:51 PM

Hahahaha, how is this a TKO?... Carcillo definitely wins, but that is not a TKO.

Posted by ron muti on January 01, 2010 at 05:28 PM

thornton lost his footing. good shots on both sides.

Posted by Dave Brown HOF on January 08, 2010 at 03:43 AM

I can't stand Carcillo, mainly because of his BS show boating antics but he takes this fight.

Posted by bruiseyoureye on January 02, 2010 at 02:37 PM

surprising win over thornton by the philthadelphia player and dirty cheap-shot artist carcillo.....i was hoping thornton would shatter carcillos orbital bones for both eyes and break his nose and knock out the 3 teeth that he has left in his filthy garbage mouth......maybe next time they play, lucic comes back and puts carcillo in the hospital.......id love to see lucic knock carcillo unconscious out on the ice to where they would need a stretcher to get that shiitbag carcillo off the ice.

Posted by SgtKenney on January 16, 2010 at 11:28 AM

carcillo with the win. not a very good bout, but decent.

Posted by bboyer on January 02, 2010 at 07:01 PM

Carcillo caught him. Just enough to put him down. Not much here.

Posted by shrk33 on January 01, 2010 at 05:45 PM

Carcillo gets the better of Thornton with that one punch. I think overall Thornton is the better fighter, but Carcillo gets the better of him on this day. Good game!

Posted by Bad Dawg on January 02, 2010 at 12:20 PM

Carcillo is an arsehole just like the guy who thinks he fights anyone and comes out on top!!!

Posted by jbaker3924 on January 02, 2010 at 11:25 AM

Win Carcillo.

Posted by Brujo on January 07, 2010 at 03:40 PM

Carcillo with the knockdown and win. Thornton is a very tough customer and rarley loses a fight. Now bruiseyoureye you actually think lucic is tougher than thornton? keep smoking the good stuff buddy, lucy can't stay healthy enough to play forget about fighting. lucy is to fragile to be considered tough.

Posted by EastKing on January 01, 2010 at 07:00 PM

Carcillo with the win.

Posted by Behn Wilson on January 01, 2010 at 07:59 PM

Surprising win by the leagues worst facial hair (George include). Maybe Rypien could help him adjust it, the way he helped Janssen with his deviated septum.

Posted by crazyschwaab on January 01, 2010 at 05:37 PM

haha.... that was a tko.... and what is with hal over here... calm your self down boy. it's ok that thornton lost... I don't know why you are freaking out so hard. you can tell the punch landed in the replay man... both benches could... thornton would probably say it landed... haha

Posted by eltrucho on January 02, 2010 at 10:35 AM

Hey dropintheglov ur wrong when ur saying that Carcillo will fight with anyone tall or small, hes a fucking pussy, last year in an interview he said he woulnd fight with Laraque cuz hes an unidimensional player and there was no point fighting laraque. Tell me why they dont fight when the habs play the flyers??????, they where teamates in phoenix and he saw how laraque can take u down, hes not crazy to fight with him cuz hes afraid to look like a fool

Posted by PKisel34 on January 01, 2010 at 02:14 PM

Carcillo TKO

Posted by bostonrs555 on January 01, 2010 at 11:04 PM

The Little Ball of Hate Carcillo drops Thornton right where Zimmer got thrown on his big meat head!!!! Win by TKO for Carcillo

Posted by b.t.wilson on January 01, 2010 at 04:58 PM

carcillo put thornton on his arse, which took me for one by surprise. thornton seemed fine getting up, so kind of hard to see where he took it. anyways, definite win for carcillo, kind of hard to call it more than a 5 though...

Posted by tattooedkingpin on January 01, 2010 at 04:54 PM

Win Carcillo and his moustache

Posted by staceyb on January 02, 2010 at 06:40 AM

Carcillo smoked him with a right--you can tell Laviolette has gotten to him because he didn't punch Thornton a second time when he had him down. The Flyers seem to playing with greater discipline in the past two weeks.

Posted by ahartnack on January 04, 2010 at 05:25 PM

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on January 05, 2010 at 04:13 PM


Posted by GSP09 on January 02, 2010 at 07:50 PM

Carcillo connected with a right at Thornton"s jaw and he went down but came back up quickly and wasn't out , so this is not a KO nor TKO. as for Carcillo is a punk for showing off . He is not even in the top ten in the league, hope he will get his butt kicked soon. Fan of neither team.

Posted by pepsigenerate on January 01, 2010 at 09:29 PM

Carcillo dropped Thorton on his arse,lucic i think is a way better fighter then Shawn Thorton.

Posted by homeland on February 04, 2010 at 02:59 PM

eh, Carcillo in a close one

Posted by The Foil on January 11, 2010 at 01:26 AM

Both guys got in some shots, win to Carcillo

Posted by tomdetroit on January 02, 2010 at 04:23 PM

Carcillo wins. Say what you like about him and that dirtbag team he's on, he's tough.

Posted by ScarbroSaint on January 02, 2010 at 10:41 AM

danny boy wins but thornton should have

Posted by IrishBrawler44 on January 01, 2010 at 05:49 PM

Daniel Carcillo landed the big right to the side of Thorntons head that dropped him. Carcillo said coming off the ice in between periods to Darren Pang,that Thornton asked him for the fight. Thought there'd be more fights. Great game! Lots of hitting. Tim Thomas made the bonehead move of deciding checking Hartnell was more important than stopping the puck that went in for an easy goal.

Posted by pbburns2009 on January 08, 2010 at 09:03 PM

just ok not much of a fight. Carcillo wins by knockdown

Posted by Muscles on January 05, 2010 at 09:24 PM

Carcillo landed a lucky one, but he won.

Posted by Bruins29 on January 01, 2010 at 05:17 PM

Close fight, up until the final punch. Win Carcillo.

Posted by QUIGGS22 on January 02, 2010 at 06:20 PM

Carcillo ends it with a bomb !!!

Posted by Joeinfla on January 03, 2010 at 09:42 AM

Solid shot to the melon by Carcillo ends the fight.Carcillo could have nailed him again but refrained.

Posted by Konsthandlarn on January 01, 2010 at 04:45 PM

Win Carcillo

Posted by BooSanta on January 06, 2010 at 07:51 PM

Good trade of punches early Thorns seem to have an edge, then he got off balance and Carbomb lands the clincher. Thorns will want a rmatch here. He probably would have wanted Cote again. Funny that later Carbomb said he wanted no part. Maybe this handy win might get him to take on tougher customers like Thorns.

Posted by dave_brown on January 01, 2010 at 08:33 PM

Carcillo caught Thornton with one here. I would have loved to hear HOMER EDWARDS call this fight.

Posted by flyerguy on January 02, 2010 at 10:15 AM

I never seen a forum of any kind with such blind and or idiotic people. Whiners all over and excuse makers. Judge a damn fight and leave your editorials for someplace else. I'm a Flyers fan but if a flyer loses i say he loses. If a guy from another team wins, i say he wins. All you pathetic losers who have to bitch and moan about why a guy wins should go watch figure skating for god's sake. You people give MEN a bad name. Going into this forum makes me believe that birth control should have been a better option for alot of parents of people in here. Grow the fuck up!

Posted by CairnsNYI33 on January 01, 2010 at 11:07 PM

1 punch TKO for Carcillo.

Posted by boldbilly on January 01, 2010 at 05:52 PM

Hal 29 you sound like an idiot every time I read your comments. I like Thornton ( and I'm a Habs fan ) but stop making excuses evertime he loses, '' caught him off guard '' how do you catch him off guard when he's throwing punches himself. Was he surprised that Carcillo was punching back? Yes you admitt he loses but you always explain how or why he lost. The good ones lose sometimes get over it, how about saying good close fight slight edge to Carcillo and yes you are a homer you make me want to puke everytime you gush about Lucic WIN CARCILLO GOOD SHOWING BY THORNTON

Posted by BigFistRocco on January 01, 2010 at 02:22 PM

Carcillo took a few to set up Thorton for the TKO

Posted by kimo_coyote on January 02, 2010 at 01:23 AM

Carcillo W. just leave the "show boating" out of it. Act like you won a fight before.

Posted by GET SOME on January 01, 2010 at 07:06 PM

Carcillo with the win in a close bout. Picture of him next to Schultz was comical. I would not classify the caterpilar under his nose as a mustache. Maybe when he reaches puberty will it grow in properly.

Posted by metz87 on January 01, 2010 at 05:54 PM

Saw this game on tv. Wsh there were more fights in the game but this one was pretty good.

Carcillo with the knockout.

Carcillo's the best .Hardest punch by a middleweight in the NHL !!!!!!!!!

Posted by ndahl on January 02, 2010 at 11:24 PM

yeaaaah....Carcillo is the shizzzzz......i dont know why people thought he was the underdog.....hes proved himself more times than I can count.....

Posted by smwarpig63 on January 02, 2010 at 08:03 PM

carcillo had him lined up for a killing. just like the respectful player that he is, he held back.

Posted by tank10 on January 02, 2010 at 03:32 PM

Thornton got worked, pretty rare. Carcillo W.

Posted by macmar99 on January 01, 2010 at 09:09 PM

Carcillo owned Thornton. But Thornton was good at first but then he sucked

Posted by igalriga on January 01, 2010 at 08:52 PM

I'm gonna give Carcillo some props for not throwing the punch when Thornton was down. Impressive.

Posted by daflyersman on January 02, 2010 at 12:53 AM

Carcillo ducks under a few Thornton punches and knocks him to the ice with a solid right to the cheek. Win: Carcillo.

Posted by C-7Enforcer on January 01, 2010 at 05:47 PM

Carcillo tagged Thorton and he dropped like a rock!!! Good mini scrap. Moneybags is off his rocker. Thorton didn't get knocked off balance, he got hammered by one good shot and went down. TKO!!!

Posted by devils on January 01, 2010 at 06:46 PM

Carcillo a tough kid,one the harder punchers in NHL.Thornton hardly ever gets knock down- the power of Carcillo! Thornton very classy after fight,gave credit to Carcillo and said he did slip alittle but a got knock down! I am sure Jack Edwards [ BIGGIST HOMMER IN LEAQUE] wound have gone on about about Carcillo being a BROAD STREET BULLY and said Thornton only slip!

Posted by CrosbySucks14 on January 18, 2010 at 06:52 PM

I like how Carcillo had respect for Thornton at the end of the fight and didn't try to punch him after he knocked him down.

Posted by 187Jeremy on January 02, 2010 at 12:07 AM

You Bruins Fans are the worst homers on here(with a couple exceptions). Hal, you are a retard. Thornton didn't slip, hes dead weight after Carcillo landed his punch. Win Carcillo.

Posted by Rebel Banker on January 01, 2010 at 08:15 PM

WIN CARCILLO! wasn't sure if it was a KD at first but even mike milbury said he saw the "bomb" carcillo dropped thornton with. carcillo has freakish strength...when he lands a shot it lights out..

Posted by cannondale on January 02, 2010 at 01:14 PM

'upyours' feels thorton slipped ??? please, son, put on your glasses and watch the footage more closely (and take off the blinders, too??). say what you want about DC, he is a tough cookie....love the reaction from the flyers bench when 'the shot' sends ST to the ice......priceless.

Posted by SCSBB5 on January 02, 2010 at 06:43 PM

Ouch, not even close, good night Thornton

Posted by Happy2 on January 02, 2010 at 11:47 PM

Clear win for Carcillo... If you look at the replay you can clearly see that Thornton is hitting Carcillo's fist with head... What a punch..

Posted by Posiedon97 on January 07, 2010 at 02:11 PM

Great fight with historical influence on the sport. great piece of history. Carcillo with the win.

Posted by EDDUBBS on January 01, 2010 at 07:00 PM

Carcillo delivers the "lights out" punch and is cocked and ready to inflict additional damage to Thorton. No doubt winner "Dan Carcillo"

Posted by acd1 on January 02, 2010 at 03:21 PM

KD win Carcillo

Posted by mikevaleriano on January 02, 2010 at 08:00 PM

Not only does the knockdown punch land clenly, but Carcillo pulls the next punch which NONE of you Carcillo haters seemed to mention. He was cocked and ready to go on the next punch and didn't pull the trigger because Thornton was on his ass. Not many guys would have held back on that next punch but of course you homers who hate Carcillo refuse to give him any credit and you STILL call him dirty and cheap. You know what they say... Opinions are like a holes... All Carcillo haters have one.

Posted by shawnfightlover on February 20, 2010 at 02:21 PM

Great fight but Shawn thornton didnt do anything winner Dan Carcillo

Posted by perezj on January 02, 2010 at 09:10 AM

Thorton slipped- draw. Thorton would kick Carcillo arse with no problem. Carcillo is a joke, look at him celebrate, act like you have been there before.

Posted by dropthemitts11 on January 02, 2010 at 01:49 AM

Great to see Carcillo step up against Thorton and drop him. TKO Carcillo for the W

Posted by Nystrom1980 on January 01, 2010 at 05:40 PM

So, Carcillo wants to be like Dave Schultz . Someone better tell him that even little Garry Howatt, of the Islanders, kicked Schultz's butt in the 70's. Look it up in the archives of this web site, or on You Tube......he kicked his ass. Hey Flyer fans ( homers) let me give you some names your Broad Street Bullies hated....... Gillies , Nystrom , Howatt , and even the Goalie Billy Smith, all kicked Flyers asses in the 1970's. Even at his age today,Howatt would put Carcillo in his hip pocket.

Posted by dead_golem on January 02, 2010 at 10:29 AM

Thornton slips before this one gets really going. Draw.

Posted by NHO3713 on January 09, 2010 at 09:10 PM

thornton slipped he didnt get punched down, not a tko by any stretch of the imagination, thornton threw with more POWER

Posted by wetstick on January 02, 2010 at 12:40 PM

how come every time a bruin gets his tail whipped we don't have jack edwards ? easy win for carcillo

Posted by rocky7482 on January 01, 2010 at 07:29 PM

Yes, the puke carcillo with the 'w', but only because thornton lost his balance.....watch out next game.....if carcillo fancies himself as the next coming of the hammer, he should start to challenge boogaard, godard, orr, mcgratton, laraque, etc. every game.

Posted by Phila26Flyers on January 01, 2010 at 04:58 PM

KD win Carcillo.

Posted by tomales2 on January 02, 2010 at 09:56 AM

Sadly, a win for the Brat. Man, it must really hurt to be smacked on the nose in the cold! Do some of you know what a TKO is? This was a knockdown-a far cry from a TKO

Posted by Oil Can Henry on January 01, 2010 at 09:09 PM

Carcillo wins it with the knockdown - He looks more like Rick MacLeish with that cheesy moustache.

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on October 25, 2010 at 06:19 PM

Thornton had him, but got caught and goes down. Win to Carcillo, not sure if Thornton lost his balance, but he did get hit. Kind of a lucky shot, but it was a good fight, perfectly illustrating the old-chool style of the B's and the Flyers.

Posted by dorian on January 02, 2010 at 05:54 PM

Posted by claire alexande on January 01, 2010 at 05:07 PM

Reasonably close scrap until Carcillo unleashes the bomb and flattens Thornton. Could have smoked Thornton again after the KD but restrained himself.

Posted by goody72 on January 01, 2010 at 08:26 PM

Good fight.. Close until the knockdown. Good win for Carcillo. Good sportsmanship by both guys.

Posted by tiburon4 on January 03, 2010 at 02:24 AM

slugged it out at first but Carcillo brought Thornton down. Forget the mustache comment, sheesh!

Posted by Rex from MN on January 04, 2010 at 08:36 AM

Lots of Bruins homers on this site can't seem to just admit their guy lost, plain and simple, by knockdown. Funny how Carcillo was pictured next to the Hammer. He would kind of fit with the Bullies...and get what's coming to him like Robinson and Beck and Gillies did to Schultz.

Posted by PuckmaninMN on January 02, 2010 at 10:38 AM

Carcillo in a good, quick one. It was nice to NOT have to hear those tools from Beantown TV describe how Thornton slipped on a banana peel as he punched DC relentlessly.

Posted by swany65 on January 02, 2010 at 01:23 PM

some of you are delusional. Look how both benches reacted to the fight, that shows you who won. Lay off the crack people.

Posted by samtheman on January 02, 2010 at 01:39 PM

Carcillo with the KO. Love the way the haters say Thornton slipped or lost his balance. Yes he did, but only after he got puched square in the face by a Carcillo bomb...
