A lot of punches thrown but not many connecting...
Thornton had difficulty finding his footing but still managed to find a way to throw despite going lefty (which should have been advantage Gillies).
Great determination by both ...going with a Draw.
Gillies has got to find a new post fight - ' I'm pumped ' routine...like trying to intimidate the gatoraid bottle just doesn't do it.
This is the NHL...not the WWF.
you know, in terms of effort, i would call this a 9. i don't know if i have ever seen such a high percentile of missed punches though. the air in boston is absolutely rocked right now from these two good scrappers. no damage done to either i'd reckon, calling it a 4 and a draw.
