Shawn Thornton on His Fight With Derek Dorsett
The linesmen struggled to separate the two with Thornton still wanting to land blows with Dorsett on his knees on the ice.
“Chalk it up to many coffees, I guess,” Thornton said of what set him off. “It’s over now. The series is over. I’m not going to be that guy afterwards to talk about it. I thought he was trying to take liberties on my linemate. I wasn’t OK with that, and that’s the end of it. We were both upset at the end, doesn’t happen too often, but a little wound up (Saturday) I guess.”
