Wrestling match, with the new rules, Thornton should and will be suspended for sure. That was totally blindside to the head of an unsuspecting opponent or however the rules read. I like Joe, but he will be sitting out a few. The sneak attack from the penalty box was totally bush Joe.
The fight was over shadowed by Thorton's hit.
Slight edge to Pietrangelo.
Don't know why Thorton's in the box ?
I feel he should either out of the game for the head shot or it's a legal shoulder hit ! It's one or the other ...the refs sat on the fence on this call.
Looks like double standards to me because it's " Joe ".
Agreeing with Behn...legal check on paper , but ?? crossed the line.
pathetic "please give me a suspension, pleeeeease!" hit by thornton leads to a pathetic fight by logan "please let me fight like stortini, pleeeeease!" couture. win p-i-e-t-r-a-n-g-e-l-o.
PS - A) anyone whose argument entails calling people assholes and to eat dick, I don't take serious, whatsoever. B) if you say that it wasn't a dirty hit etc etc, the game used to be tougher, etc etc, its old time hockey etc etc, I, and most other who find these hits dirty, will agree with you once we are back to old time hockey equipment. Please don't be so ignorant.
win Little Italy...it really looks like Perron did not get hit in the head & flopped....ive seen enough guys knocked out..a few last night,actually to notice when legs give out or are whipped out.....he recovered mad fast also
Don't skate with your head down and you won't get popped. If you can't take a clean hit, then become a quarterback in the NFL. The NHL is now allowing guys to skate around with their eyes glued to the puck instead of looking up for hits like the one Joe put on Perron. I can never give a win to a guy that wears a shield and doesn't take it off prior to the fight. Win Courture in his NHL fighting debut.
In the Day, star or not, Thornton would have to pay for that hit. Good job by Coture to step in, good job by Petro to step up...GREAT job by Perron to wake up from that one and get the ultimate revenge by scoring a goal.
Crap fight, but I predict we have not seen the last of this situation. He'll get a few games in the press box and these teams will meet again.
