Jack Edwards describes the fight as Character landing dozens of rights and and using Thorburns face as a speedbag. Typical Edwards blind drunk announcing. AND just cos we ALL hate Jack Edwards and Bruins pussies, WIN to THORBURN. We also hate the Bruins because they are SO cheap and dirty.
The side show freakish giraffe looked awkward as usual when he fights someone who can actually fight back.......here unlike the dim witted Bruin supporters I think HE yes CHARA was lucky he fell because if Thorburn would have connected .......anyway this fight was a draw.......lets see side show fight someone like Mclaren or McGratten .....until then he is as most see him a spot picking loser who is always ready to fight the marginal tough guys..bruins and their dim witted fans are laughable.
Can we stop pretending Chara is a heavyweight now? He's just a good defenseman who happens to be a really big lummox. He's Kjell Samuelsson with a couple more inches and an attitude, but he ain't a contender. Weak fight, but more entertaining than the usual Chara lean-on-me ending.
Way to go "Big Z". Physically dominated and embarrassed by a mediocre fighter like Chris Thorburn. Pathetic, …but at the same time very predictable. Anyone on this site who voted for Chara should be ashamed of themselves. I'd love to hear what the "explanation" is for their interpretation of Chara "winning" this fight. "Big Z" got punched several times and then got thrown to the ice violently for good measure. Chara, with his obtuse and freakish frame, probably thought he was going to murder Thorburn, otherwise he would have never dropped the gloves, ...because that's just how "Big Z" rolls. Give it up "Z". Everyone sees you for exactly what you are: A gangly circus clown on stilts with practically no fighting ability and a heart the size of a grape.
Win Thorburn in this crappy fight
Neither guy landed and I don't give points for awkward slips and falls on the ice. DRAW, Hopefully people can finally realize Chara is not a heavyweight in this league. But what he is, is a good captain. He threw a hit on Wheeler, he was challenged by Thorburn and he obliged like a captain should do. Unlike a lot of other "captains" in this league would have. A lot of posters here I find hate on the Bruin's for no reason at all other than they hate the Bruins. To me, they seem like a unified team who's members are willing to stick up for each other and go to battle for one another regardless of the foe. Maybe that is why they have so much success and are despised by so many fan bases?
I can't see anything but a draw here.
Thorburn showed no fear when he took on the big man. Chara got off balance quickly and I believe he took a shot or two before going down. That's an L for big Z.
Not one punch landed by either guy so how could anyone rate this anything but a draw?
Nothing happened by either guy a boring draw
Chara with a punch, Thorburn with takedown. Crap fight, but good exchange getting Chara off the ice. Draw
None of Thorburn's punches landed, he was game though.
Thorburn decided NOT to go toe to toe, but instead take Chara down to the ice. Thus ending the fight. Thorburn is no dummy.
After watching this fight I do not think a solid punch was landed by either player. This was a draw at best.
Only landed punch landed by Chara so I give him the edge!You don,t win a fight for a take down this is not the UFC,
Chara, for his size, can't fight, which is why Thorburn even approached him. I watch alot of Bruins games and Chara frustrates me to high heaven. He never consistently takes the body, fights when he wants against lesser guys, and isn't good. See the Thornton v Scott fight two years ago. After Scott rocked Thornton, Chara should've asked Scott for a go and didn't, after all the fights Thornton takes. Weak.. ..Chara only fought because he was challenged at home..
pulled chara down before he got going, smart move but weak fight
Week bout by two guys that had potential to make it more interesting. Thorburn threw more punches but didnt land any, Chara threw a few and landed one. I give it a draw, maybe a slight edge to Thorburn for the takedown.
Ehh not so great, Thorburn was unable to reach Chara to hit him. Chara landed a few solid hits but then got preoccupied with removing Chris' helmet and forgot to balance. No winner here.
i thought this one would be an easy win for chara but in fact thorburn was more active...draw
I see why Chara never went after Scott for putting Thornton in the hospital. Big Bird is a lame duck when it comes to fighting.
Draw. Thorburn would make a good hab. He sux.
Charro turtles again for the draw.
Thorburn put in more effort but didn't connect. Can't give a decision to either one.
you know there are a lot of players i dont care for (ott etc) but i at least try to vote reality. violently thrown to the ice?
Nobody landed anything. It was a shake fest that embarrassed both teams.
HAHAHAHA wait....thorburn wins a fight for zero punches landed? and chara fell or was off balance that wasn't a take down....and thorburn did not hit on the way down. Why do you kids smoke your big brothers dope then come vote on hockey fights. I'm a bruin fan and I wouldn't say chara won but I sure as fuck wouldn't say thorburn did either. He was 6 inches from chara everytime he swung and missed. chara isn't a fighter but he could hang with anyone based on his size and strength. If he couldn't why don' t more "heavyweights" challenge him? Bunch of idiots on here seriously....who is winnipeg? on a side note...so many haters in the NHL of the bruins. I can't understand why...maybe because we drafted well (lucic, bergeron, krejci) and got good and we are tough as shit and play as an honest team and don't dive or take very many cheap shots (yes the thornton thing happened but that is his first career suspension). That is the best part of being a bruins fan...we win....we compete....we make it tough to play against us and people hate us for that I guess.
Chara does his best Klitschko impression, keeping Thorburn away and throwing the steady shots.
Thorburn did his job in getting the big guy off for 5. But he took a loss in a pretty uneventful one. Chara and a 4.
Crap. I guess Thorburn for the take down, or a draw.
Chara is a chump, plain and simple. Every fight he is in sucks, and losing to Thorburn is downright laughable.
"And Chara pounds him!" Jesus Christ. Thorburn in an awful bout.
Two crappy fights in one game Edge to thorburn although not much happened Chara is overrated in fighting, only beats little guys Id like to see him fight other tall people like frazer mclaren or john scott
Gutsy move by Thorburn, although keeping Chara off the ice did not end up making a difference in the end
Chara is a great Defenseman mostly due to his size and long reach but he is really not a good fighter... the problem his Chara picks his fights as bad as Wayne Simmonds does. Any time Chara does tangle with someone of substance he either jumps them or grabs them and tries to take them to the ice
Thorburn by a hair...Not too many guys ask Chara to fight but Thorburn was clearly the instagator. Rated as a 3 not much landed.
Chara is a horrible fighter, no wonder he keeps ducking Scott.
I think Chara had some Vodka in his water bottle Take down Thor "winner"
Another Bruin losing a fight. Too funny.
Thornburn lands a few early, then misses a bunch. Chara lands one late, then they fall to the ice. It looked like Heartburn was in over his head here but I'm gonna give him the win narrowly for his start and general effort.
Hmmmm The only punch of any significance is landed at 0:29 by Chara; then he falls and fight is over Tell me again how Thorburn gets the win? Let me guess (and say it with me) The Logo de Toilet Seat Brigade out in full force voting against public enemy 1 in mah-ree-hal
Didn't look like Thorburn landed a single punch.. I suppose he gets the win for tackling Chara?????
Ill give it to chara but, big ups to Thorburn for answering the bell!
Chara landed the only punches
not a good fight....
How can anyone vote for thorburn? He never got a punch in. Hitting air does not win a fight.
Thornburn did a good thing throwing Chara down before Chara had time to kill him
Nothing fight. Whoever thinks Thorburn won is a total butthole. Chara slipped at the end otherwise the was gonna wipe the ice with Chris. Boston loses because Chara is a better player.
Another accurate Jack Edwards call.
thorburn punching the crap out of the air and the giraffe on skates trying not to get thumped. wowee.
Thornburn with the win just for going after Chara.Chara has been looking good in front of the Enforcers in the NHL for years cause no one fights him,even though the reputation is in Chara's part,'size wise' and fought a couple damaging battles.
Thorburn wins this horrible exhibition. NEVER VOTE FOR A BRUIN REGARDLESS OF THE OUTCOME.
I'll give the strategic win to Thorburn for getting a team captain off the ice for five by way of some taunting, a judo hip throw, and surviving. Didn't see one punch land.
Only give Thorburn the win 'cause Z slipped...Anyone that says Z can't fight better go back and look at some of his earlier bouts..Not the guy you want fighting but he can be a monster, Thornys lucky he slipped..Would LOVE to see Z and John Scott Go
Crap fight, but shows how bad Chara is. His size just makes him difficult to hit, but at least Thorburn was throwing.
Not much here.
Thorburn missed on all 5 punches he threw. Chara missed on the 2 he threw. Nonetheless , Chara again demonstrates that outside of his height he has little else and can't handle Thorburn's strength. Thorburn gets the obvious win here as Chara had trouble staying in there with Thorburn....
good job by THORBURN
Chara by a knockout, sorry, I was listening to Jack Edwards there. Chara should have done better. It pains me to say it but the big man lost.
Funny Jack " Bullwinkle" Edwards did'nt say that Chara won this fight and then beat up Thorburns relatives, how delusional that F***head gets. Circus freak here looks a little confused, good to see. Everyone must know by now, Edwards goes home after every game, and masturbates into a Bruins condom.....idiot
31% for Chara ??? Seriously , i can understand peoples giving the win to Thorburn for at least punching (most of them on nothing) but Chara did NOTHING to deserve a win !!!
Thorburn takes the shadow boxing contest here.
Is this Zdeno Chara related to the Zdeno Chara that destroyed David Koci's face that one time???
Thorburn with the win.
Slight edge to Thorburn in this scrap. I can't believe it happened either!
Gotta give it to Thorbeak
Lame fight. Giving it to Thorby for being aggressor and take down.
Meh, not much to see here...
Nice to see the monster taking a couple on the nose :)
Thorburn with the win in a noneventful fight.
Thorburn should have been allowed to put a 1 foot extension on to his arm. Might have been able to touch chara then.
Thorn-bizzle,....on 'style points' alone..lol Im sure there will 15 pages of comments by midnight since a Bruin dropped the mitts..
Chara pounds him.... with the miss. Thornburn busier and didn't land much either. More of a win to Thornburn getting Z -man off the ice for a while.
Didn't expect Chara to almost basically lose to Chris Thorburn, but that just happened.
Again, Chara shows what kind of fighter he really is. Thorburn with the win.
Chara ran Wheeler, Sideburns called on him to answer for it, and the big man did. Chara's big and willing, but I just don't think that he's a very good fighter. W for Thorburn here in a sloppy, fell out of the ugly tree hitting every branch on the way down fight. I don't know why some of the dimmer bulbs on our Christmas tree insist on saying "wait till he fights Gratts", etc with Chara. Unless it's a heat of the moment thing, Norris finalists generally don't fight guys competing for the HW crown in the league. It's a mismatch.
Major props for Thorburn for picking this fight. He usually doesnt do very well and Chara is def not slim pickings. Win CT
Not the first time we have seen Chara end up on his back with a fist poised to end it.
Win Thorburn because he was the more aggresive fighter and Chara seems afraid to get hit.
Thorburn lands more and wins. Chara again just stands around.
Give Thorburn credit for responding to the cheap elbow on Wheeler by Chara, which I'm sure won't be looked at by the league. Although nothing landed by either, Thorburn gets the win for being the agressor.
Just cant stand Jack Edwards, what an ass. Biggest joke out there, LOSER
That was terrible! Chara looked sick!
WOW...Who'd a thunk it! Good, smart fight by Thorburn. Gets Chara held up so he can't punch, he lands the only blows of the fight and takes down Chara and more importantly takes him off the ice. Win Thorburn.
Loss for Freak Show. Chris went looking for Zman and was not worried to engage. Good job!
Edge Chris Thornburn.
Thorburn actually looked like a decent fighter there. He gets the W.
Good scrap................Chara was at the end of his shift........... end of story.........that being said-- Thorburn is one tough cookie..........ps............ its amazing how when SEAN THORTON is is out of the line up how things change, .FYI .... I am not a bruin fan-- I am an Islanders fan.........JMO.......
Thorburn, a surprise.
All you have to do is read posts when a Bruin fights, and some Boston moron (aren't they all) will tell you that if you vote for the other guy you're a hater and a moron. No punches landed and therefore can't vote for your guy either. Maybe people hate the Bruins because most of their fans are asswipes and not because of the team.
I am amazed at how Thorburn manhandled Chara to the ice. Win Thorburn. Goonsquad, let us know when you come back from fantasyland! LMAO!!!! Also, when Broons fans call it a draw, you know their guy lost.
Thorburn is in my top 5 of miserable heavy weights but that's as good as one can handle Chara.
That was a f'n surprise...
Great play thorburn
how do you retards say Chara got beat?
Thorburn's ineffectiveness nicely matched by Chara. Draw, and an ugly one at that.
Why are there so many Bruin hating morons on this site? Everybody on here likes fighting in hockey but to have so much venom towards one team just seems infantile. I like the fact Chara at least went with the goon to begin with. The smart play is for him to skate away and stay on the ice. It looked pretty even to me but who cares, at least he dropped them.
Really?....how can u win a fight with no punches landed....Allday Draw
Thorburn lands nothing. Bruin haters in full force here. Draw
LOL Thorburn didn't land a single punch, at least Chara landed one. That's the way to win Chris.
This site has lost its credibility due to all the 13 year old canadiens who bitch on here all day... Go ahead, continue to be jealous of Boston... we are better than you... btw this fight is a shitty draw... Chara cant fight like he used to.... but Lucic, and Mquaid will beat anyones ass.
Thorburn survives and Chara is off balance like he is quite often in fights that he isn't destroying someone.
Wanna be declared the winner of a fight without landing a single punch? Just fight a Bruin, the haters will take care of the rest. Chara with the only punch that landed & the W. Now for all the idiotic talk about Chara having to prove something by fighting Scott, your up idiots!!
chara grabbed with the wrong hand at first....lucky for thorburn
Draw HATERS, Thorburn didnt land a punch. Since when a take down wins a fight.
This really isn't even a fight so anything other than a draw is hater/homer BS diatribe that plagues this site. You know who you are.........
Chara lands only punch. Thorburn wit the takedown. Draw. Orpik could learn from Chara
Thorburn with the win in this tilt. Thorburn wouldn't even look cross eyed at John Scott the other night!
Thorburn did NOT win that fight he didnt land a punch, chara wins a crap fight
Chara lands a punch at the end. If you give thorburn the win for not even landing a punch you are retarded. This is nothing but a crap draw. Haters gonna hate tho I spose
Bad fight here, as Chara isn't able to keep his balance as Thorburn continually misses. Chara lands a pair of punches to take the win, but otherwise nothing of note transpired here.
Hahaha typical. The Bruins haters led by boldbilly and the rest of the moronic Habs fans give Thorburn a win without landing a punch. Yet, those same hypocrites call Bruins fans "homers". Ironic.
Come for the freak, stay for the food. I heard they shaved an ape.
Tiny Tim had some huge huevos to take on Chara and he didn't embarrass himself; in fact, I don't disagree with those who gave Thorburn the W. In the post game interview Thorburn said he was trying to get Chara off the ice for five minutes. Chara, meanwhile, looked as rusty as the tail pipe on a '55 Mercury.
The ever accurate Sedinfan sums it up perfectly although aesthetically I think we can all thank our lucky stars that Chara didn't get Sideburn's helmet off at the end Eighties hair makes me queasy
