Other than one big punch, it was more of a love in. Walker wins two in a row, it is about time as the big bad Bruins have had a tough time winning fights this year. It is time that Chara tuned someone in and got them going again.
Walker has to change his set up. It's obvious he likes to set up the big right and is becoming too telegraphic with it. Thornton's rights are shorter and just as powerful..doesn't have to travel the long distance like Walker's, who sets his right from way behind.
Edge to Thornton.
Have to agree with BW. Thornton's total lock out of Walker's right and timely counterpunches won him this fight.
I wouldn't say Thornton was all that aggressive past the initial few punches though. Walker was more agressive for the final 2/3 of the fight but just didn't look it thanks to Thorntons lock-down.
Walker is no slouch, but thornton has the upper-hand here.
Downie is a puke, He plays like a piece of trash! But unfortunately he scores some goals too so that's why he stays. Although I hope he somehow gets banished to the ahl eventually. Someone should have injured him in this game. I just depise players like Downie in general even if he was on my team!! When he did that stupid crap with Satan, the Bruins scored on that following power-play, guys like him will cost their team many more power-play goals too!
Before watching the video I imagined that this would be close. I was wrong-again! Thornton's classic hold on Walker's jersey negated any chance that Walker had of being aggressive-as my buddy Behn pointed out first. Nice showing for the only Bruin that I can tolerate.
