Two old war horses go against each other and I call it a draw with maybe a slight edge to Thornton.
Both guys coming off decent bouts the game prior, def not much in the way of landing punches here, draw and a 5
decent scrap. Shelly needs to calll it a day.
Both put in a spirited effort but not much landed. Draw. Can someone please get the Bruins announcers some glasses with the correct prescription?
Pretty decent fight but I don't know who Thornton thinks he is with those boxing moves he was trying to show !! If he got in the ring with a real boxer he'd have his ass kicked in the first round !!
Draw. Nobody first quarter, Shelly second quarter, Thornton third quarter, Shelly slips into vulnerable and they lock up and call it a fight.
Not many punches landing cleanly (perhaps one left by Thornton). Overall, I see a Draw between two good lads earning their paychecks.
I'm going with Draw on this one. Both guys showing their flexibility and adaptability. I like watching the old-time tough guys going at it.
How did Thorton win this!! ? BS its a good draw
tough call.i cant decide between edge thornton or draw but it was a very good fight by both guys so it wouldnt be fair to call it either way...draw and 7
Good close fight. Thornton with the sneaky little crossover to his left early in the fight.
Great fight boys, this is almost as good as Bruins/Canucks.
Good fight! Both guys threw hard. Each landed one good one. Misses don't count...so Thornton can't win. Good Draw...two real warriors! Sestitio's hit was clean...do not skate across the middle with your head down! Just because the guy had a concussion doesn't mean he gets the Quarterbacks ''yellow practice" jersey. These guys need to make their necks a lot stronger and they need to PAY ATTENTION!!!
draw more or less.custombreaks, you are consistent,I will give you that.Its great that we all can express our views,thats what makes this place the best.
Spirited and even bout. Each threw a lot and landed landed a few....
Love that Thornton's switch-hitting more lately. Must have read Boogaard's notes about the southpaw intimidation factor. Shelley lands some bombs though.
This leprechaun Thornton is a real piece of work. Edge to Shelley and soon the bruins, who have a ton of cheap shot artists in their lineup, will fade into obscurity.
There, I'm finally caught up... Man, you turn your back for one minute... and all hell breaks loose. Here, we find Thornton, bouncing around like ''Janssen Rubble'', trying, unsuccessfully, to surprise Shelley by going ''lefty'' early, Luckily for him, Shelley couldn't even muster a decent grip, much less a sustained attack, as the Bruin, eventually, took it home on points. LOL Horton on Sestito, and how about that Kyle ''Friggin'' Neuber? Leaf Nation...WTF does this guy have to do to get your attention?
Thornton with the W!! Good fight!!
Close fight...gotta love Thorton for continually taking on guys much bigger than him, and fairing well!!!!!!
Not a fair fight if you leave your mask on.
Not a very good bout. Gotta give the edge to Thornton because he actually landed some punches. Shelley threw a lot of misses. Win Thornton.
Slight edge to Thornton... I have to ask, how is it that anyone believes Thornton is a heavyweight???? He's 6'1", just over 200 lbs..... He is outsized in just about every fight and holds his own. Props to a guy who never says no and loves his job.
It was definitely a great game in Philly. All that was missing were appearances by The Hammer and The Tazmanian Devil.
Good tilt by 2 Heavies, Shelley had a good start but Thornton Finished it Off
We won't go down. Who's next. Put em up or shut up.
Nice win for Thornton who controlled the action
very good fight i wish my sabres knew how to fight
I can't believe Shelley is still pulling an NHL paycheck, he's worthless. Win ST.
Thornton landed better and more punches. Win to Thornton.
Thornton with the clear win over Shelley
Pretty good bout. I think Thornton gets a slight edge.
Good win for Thornton in a close one. Love the back and forth with minimal jersey grabbing.
Thornton starting with lefts beats Shelley who may be destined for the AHL soon....
Two of the best going here. I like Thorntons aggressivness in this one, wich for me is enough for the win.....could argue draw.
The fact that Shelley tries to push Thornton over the boards says it all, he'd had enough.....
good fight. edge Thornton
thornton gets the win in this fight.
Thornton with the win. Good scrap.
Shelley does well, but is mostly overwhelmed.
shelly eats more as thorton lands more in a good scap customb-your jealousy act is getting old and your logic bizarre.dude, you should'nt have dropped out of school,it shows
Good heavey weight battle. Slight edge to Thornton. Landed better punches.
ST more active and landed cleaner. Edge Thornton. Good tilt.
Thorny had the rhythm throughout, better shots too.... Nice job ST !! That big drunken doryman's time in the show is limited...
I dont think Thornton hits as hard as Shelley, but landed more in this one, so he gets a slight edge in the decision. Great fight though. Maybe it's me, but Shelley seems to have gotten old really quickly in the last couple of years. Tough tough way to make a living.
Good fight edge to thornton
seemed like thornton handled shelley to me as shelley was confused by the awkward jersey grab and swung wildly
Gotta give the edge to the more aggresive Thornton. He's really upped his game since he was schooled by Ottawa's big Matt Carkner last year.
Win Thorton, Good fight. wish thorton could have got loose.
Good fight- not sure what Thornton was trying to do with the lefty lead in. He took a nice right hand while trying to establish the left. He bailed on it halfway through and won with the right hand.
Vancouver and Montreal will suck more Bruin di*k again this year. C'mon Canuckbreaks .......let hear you cry as you swallow.
I don't see how you could vote for Thornton. I see it as a draw; and if there is an edge, I give it to Shelley. He controlled the action. Thornton was the aggressor; but that's all you can give him. Too many punches landed far short of the target. I don't understand the lopsided advantage in voted other than a lot of Bruin fans voting. Shelley by an edge for standing tall and firing down the barrel at a busy target!
Slight edge her to Shelly. Thornton over rated
Shelley beats the BeanyTown genius "i'm a man". Those roids probably made "i'm a man" act like a Mexican Jumping Bean. BeanyTown lost dirty Ference, but got their all time favourite playoff ref O'Halloran to baby sit them to victory again. Its a crying shame the 2011 tainted Cup winners can't hide behind Quirky Campbell skirt the way they have since Chippy join their squad.
Shelley edges out Thornton for the win. Close bout.
Draw or an edge to Shelley for that spurt from :20-:25
God, the Bruin homers have really taken over this place. Edge to Shelly.
Still haven't seen Thornton win a fight.
I watched this clip several times and I still don't see where all the Thornton votes are coming from. It was a close fight, but Shelley with the definite edge with the better shots landed. He knocked Thornton to his knees then knocked his helmet off while Thornton didn't land much of anything. I guess the Bruin ballot stuffers are coming out of the woodwork.
Good fight, but again Shelley seems to have Thornton's number as he landed the bigger punches. Thornton is 0 for 2 in fights this weekend.
close, but Shelly got the upper hand.
Lots of Boston homers on here, obviously. Shelley punches so hard and so fast, Thornton is lucky none of them really connected. Thornton's punches have zero effect on big Jody, so Jody wins to counteract all the Homer votes in an obvious draw. Stop being so homerish. I'm not a fan of Boston, or Philly. Just a fan of good time hockey :-)
Keep fighting Shelley!
Seriously? Shelley wins this one for sure. Not sure what you homers are looking at.
For all the people calling for Sheeley"s retirement it would seem to me that he redeemed himself in very short order now didnt he....That is not to say he won but he sure did quite alright squaring off against one of the best IMO Again Thornton shows that he is Just Physically stronger than most of the Dude's he's fighting...Pretty good and close fight !!!!!
This was a pretty good scrap. I had to call this one a draw. Both guys landed some quality shots. I felt like Shelley was the stronger of the two but he wasn't able to get a clear advantage over Thornton. I don't think Thornton had a clear advantage either. I'll give it a draw and a 7.
"Over and under, under and over." Man does this announcer get on my nerves.
Thorton may have won the fight, but the Flyers get Thorton off the ice for 5 minutes. Thorton started with Rupp on Saturday and the Bruins scored shortly after that in a very tight game. I thought Shelly did ok considering he's well past his prime and he fought a real tough guy.
Win to Thornton here, wish he could have done more to that weasel Hartnell, who wanted nothing of Thornton after the headshot he put on Kelly, and immediately planked on the ice.
Shelley should just go the way of the Dodo... obviously has outlived his usefulness on the planet. One dimensional "deterrents" who get beat up, by a tougher more all around player, should be waived like the rest of them.
Thornton gets the win here.
Thorny was very aggressive n this one
win Shawnee T
nice fight, draw, but thorny may have landed the better of the punches. and watch out, custombreaks had his pacifier taken away too early today...
Nice with both hands.... Hate Thorton, but nice win
Good tilt, Thorty with a slight edge but two of the best going toe to toe.
FrankenShelley had trouble figuring out what to do with the grip and lefty style of Thornton -- Thornton with the edge
gotta give that a draw.
