Luke Richardson vs. Joe Thornton
11/14/03
2 Pd 16:48
BOS @CBJ Luke Richardson
Richardson throws a good open ice hit on Murray putting him to the ice. Knuble has a word for him, then Thornton comes in, they have words then drop em. They grapple a bit and Thornton, with his reach, gets a good hold with his right and starts throwing left uppercuts. He lands a few, with one good one snapping Luke's head back. Thornton seemed to have him where he could have pounded Luke, but started throwing those hold-the-collar-rights, which did nothing. Richardson throws an in-close punch from the side, a right that hits helmet, then tries the takedown, but Joe throws a tomahawk shot which makes Luke hit the ice first. Other Penalties: Thornton received an instigator and misconduct.

@BOS NYR Eric Lindros
Voted winner:  Eric Lindros   (97.3%) - Voted rating: 6.5
Lindros cross checks Thornton in the face right after a faceoff out of frustration and the two have a shoving match. They drop the gloves and hold on a little bit. Thornton throws two rights, but Lindros over powers him, has him bent over and then lands a shot that puts Thornton down to the ice. Thorton leaves with a decent size cut.

Bryan McCabe vs. Joe Thornton
03/02/04
2 Pd 16:1
BOS @TOR Bryan McCabe
Voted winner:  Joe Thornton   (86.8%) - Voted rating: 6.2
A couple of shifts after the hit from behind and Berehowsky-Boynton fight, Thornton sees McCabe and goes right after him, shoving him a couple of times and then dropping the gloves. They grab on and Thornton gets the right free and starts throwing landing a couple as McCabe gets loose and lands a few of his own. Thornton then takes control putting McCabe to the ice with a nice right, McCabe gets up only to be put right back down again by another Thornton right.
