Shawn Thornton vs John Erskine

Hard to judge.. Coudnīt see if Thorntons last shot landed or not... if it did, itīs a kd win Thornton. If not I would say edge/win Erskine, who started with 2 good shots...

Pretty inconclusive due to the angles. I'll be the "homer" douche and call it a draw until I see a different feed.

It landed, just not on Erskine's face.

I'd still give the win to Thornton for a nice comeback.

They are interviewing Thornton between periods and he says '...Mr. Erskine asked and he'd done it for me in the past so I obliged...'

Totally agreed. Must watch with the sound OFF. Even if the punch grazed him. He was off balance trying avoid it. I can't stand that particular announcer. DRAW!

thornton was interviewed during the intermission...

he said that it was not the perfect timing for the fight (from a bruins view), but that erskine is a good guy who didnīt turn him down in the past, so he returned the favor...


he said that he was a little bit rusty at first... couldnīt hear if he said something about the last shot (if it landed or not...)

Looked like it was going to be an Erskine win but Thornton pulled it out with that shot.

Even if it didn't land flush, it was enough to knock him down and win the fight (he landed another one on Erskine's way down).

If you were the "homer" douche wouldn't it be a big KO Thornton???But I agree the angles aren't good enough to see if that last punch landed....
