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.

Posted by boldbilly on January 04, 2014 at 03:22 PM

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.

Posted by scorp1on on January 04, 2014 at 11:45 PM

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.

Posted by King of Goons on January 04, 2014 at 06:43 PM

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

Posted by Cid on January 05, 2014 at 11:19 AM

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?

Posted by wannago_letsgo on January 04, 2014 at 07:56 PM

I can't see anything but a draw here.

Posted by The Mad House on January 04, 2014 at 04:12 PM

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.

Posted by Goaltender on January 05, 2014 at 10:06 AM

Not one punch landed by either guy so how could anyone rate this anything but a draw?

Posted by orangecuse on January 04, 2014 at 05:19 PM

Nothing happened by either guy a boring draw

Posted by keithwarf on January 04, 2014 at 03:19 PM

Chara with a punch, Thorburn with takedown. Crap fight, but good exchange getting Chara off the ice. Draw

Posted by enzoskis on January 04, 2014 at 04:08 PM

None of Thorburn's punches landed, he was game though.

Posted by CairnsNYI33 on February 07, 2014 at 12:10 AM

Thorburn decided NOT to go toe to toe, but instead take Chara down to the ice. Thus ending the fight. Thorburn is no dummy.

Posted by blaster on January 05, 2014 at 02:17 PM

After watching this fight I do not think a solid punch was landed by either player. This was a draw at best.

Posted by rocky 1 on January 08, 2014 at 11:41 AM

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,

Posted by hebs1996 on January 05, 2014 at 10:15 AM

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..

Posted by mlongo10 on January 05, 2014 at 12:47 AM

pulled chara down before he got going, smart move but weak fight

Posted by bambam118 on January 05, 2014 at 12:42 PM

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.

Posted by maverick8500 on January 04, 2014 at 03:25 PM

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.

Posted by DARCY T on January 06, 2014 at 08:32 AM

i thought this one would be an easy win for chara but in fact thorburn was more active...draw

Posted by john-ny on January 04, 2014 at 11:04 PM

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.

Posted by DuxDragons15 on February 21, 2016 at 08:44 AM

CRAP FIGHT

Posted by Orr Fourever on January 04, 2014 at 04:59 PM

Charro turtles again for the draw.

Posted by WhaleBoy on January 04, 2014 at 04:30 PM

Thorburn put in more effort but didn't connect. Can't give a decision to either one.

Posted by hockeyonly on January 06, 2014 at 08:05 AM

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?

Posted by JasonBerry on January 05, 2014 at 12:54 AM

Nobody landed anything. It was a shake fest that embarrassed both teams.

Posted by goonsquad1224 on January 05, 2014 at 08:05 PM

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.

Posted by Spider1776 on January 05, 2014 at 06:43 PM

Chara does his best Klitschko impression, keeping Thorburn away and throwing the steady shots.

Posted by jimmat on January 04, 2014 at 05:31 PM

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.

Posted by J.R. Abel on January 05, 2014 at 03:54 AM

Crap. I guess Thorburn for the take down, or a draw.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on January 05, 2014 at 01:54 AM

Chara is a chump, plain and simple. Every fight he is in sucks, and losing to Thorburn is downright laughable.

Posted by LouCat40 on January 05, 2014 at 11:33 AM

"And Chara pounds him!" Jesus Christ. Thorburn in an awful bout.

Posted by Brian3113 on January 04, 2014 at 03:03 PM

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

Posted by kkdowning on January 05, 2014 at 11:34 AM

Gutsy move by Thorburn, although keeping Chara off the ice did not end up making a difference in the end

Posted by Mounty in NC on March 28, 2015 at 05:41 PM

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

Posted by TERMINATOR on January 04, 2014 at 08:18 PM

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.

Posted by Snoka on January 05, 2014 at 05:28 PM

Chara is a horrible fighter, no wonder he keeps ducking Scott.

Posted by Drop em bitch on January 04, 2014 at 03:42 PM

I think Chara had some Vodka in his water bottle Take down Thor "winner"

Another Bruin losing a fight. Too funny.

THORBURN WIN

Posted by Amerkfan8 on January 04, 2014 at 04:43 PM

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.

Posted by 87CROSBY87 on January 05, 2014 at 01:14 AM

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

Posted by GreyGoose on January 04, 2014 at 03:08 PM

Didn't look like Thorburn landed a single punch.. I suppose he gets the win for tackling Chara?????

How can anyone vote for thorburn? He never got a punch in. Hitting air does not win a fight.

Posted by moneybags on January 04, 2014 at 02:17 PM

Thornburn did a good thing throwing Chara down before Chara had time to kill him

Posted by beretta804 on January 05, 2014 at 10:03 PM

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.

Posted by rangerfan410 on January 05, 2014 at 10:16 AM

Another accurate Jack Edwards call.

Posted by randyv on January 05, 2014 at 07:55 AM

thorburn punching the crap out of the air and the giraffe on skates trying not to get thumped. wowee.

Posted by pepsigenerate on January 05, 2014 at 12:35 PM

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.

Posted by web1350 on January 04, 2014 at 10:23 PM

Thorburn wins this horrible exhibition. NEVER VOTE FOR A BRUIN REGARDLESS OF THE OUTCOME.

Posted by NAILS13 on January 05, 2014 at 03:51 AM

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.

Posted by EvilBme on January 05, 2014 at 08:02 PM

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

Posted by rigweigh on January 08, 2014 at 01:22 PM

Crap fight, but shows how bad Chara is. His size just makes him difficult to hit, but at least Thorburn was throwing.

Posted by gsrae on January 04, 2014 at 08:25 PM

Not much here.

Posted by slavv on January 06, 2014 at 09:44 PM

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....

Posted by ironbar44 on January 04, 2014 at 07:38 PM

good job by THORBURN

Posted by English_Bruin on January 06, 2014 at 12:39 PM

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.

Posted by Leafs2006 on January 05, 2014 at 11:44 AM

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

Posted by wyldthing on January 04, 2014 at 05:45 PM

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 should have been allowed to put a 1 foot extension on to his arm. Might have been able to touch chara then.

Posted by BooSanta on January 05, 2014 at 05:26 PM

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.

Posted by glovedropper08 on January 04, 2014 at 02:20 PM

Didn't expect Chara to almost basically lose to Chris Thorburn, but that just happened.

Posted by Blade88 on February 11, 2014 at 09:18 AM

Again, Chara shows what kind of fighter he really is. Thorburn with the win.

Posted by bruins34 on January 05, 2014 at 01:07 AM

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.

Posted by Don Berry on January 06, 2014 at 08:54 AM

Major props for Thorburn for picking this fight. He usually doesnt do very well and Chara is def not slim pickings. Win CT

Posted by nojjon on January 05, 2014 at 12:42 AM

Not the first time we have seen Chara end up on his back with a fist poised to end it.

Posted by dapwas20 on January 04, 2014 at 03:03 PM

Win Thorburn because he was the more aggresive fighter and Chara seems afraid to get hit.

Posted by DaleJ88 on January 04, 2014 at 03:32 PM

Thorburn lands more and wins. Chara again just stands around.

Posted by kinga101 on January 07, 2014 at 04:55 PM

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.

Posted by Big Playfair27 on January 07, 2014 at 07:09 PM

Just cant stand Jack Edwards, what an ass. Biggest joke out there, LOSER

Posted by Great Murray on January 05, 2014 at 09:05 AM

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.

Posted by Stinger7 on January 05, 2014 at 12:01 PM

Loss for Freak Show. Chris went looking for Zman and was not worried to engage. Good job!

Thorburn, a surprise.

Posted by Jack Meoff on January 04, 2014 at 09:09 PM

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.

Posted by BroonsGoons on January 06, 2014 at 01:46 PM

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.

Posted by Jheaton19 on January 05, 2014 at 05:54 PM

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.

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!!

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on January 04, 2014 at 04:00 PM

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.

Posted by Boston Garden on January 04, 2014 at 04:02 PM

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.

Posted by staceyb on January 04, 2014 at 05:04 PM

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.

Posted by Behn Wilson on January 04, 2014 at 02:45 PM

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
