Leafs’ Dion Phaneuf Delivers A Bone-Crushing Check On Canes’ Tuomo Ruutu (Video)
Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Clifford vs. Thornton — 1/24/11
There was no shortage of great fights during last night’s NHL action, and while bouts between the Blues’ Cam Janssen and the Avs’ David Koci, and the Leafs’ Clarke MacArthur and the Canes Chad LaRose were quite entertaining, they simply couldn’t top the performance we received from the Los Angeles Kings’ Kyle Clifford and the Boston Bruins’ Shawn Thornton.
Looking to make a name for himself in the league, the youngster Clifford has partaken in several fights already this season, and this time he was looking to assert himself against a veteran in Thornton. Both combatants landed several blows, but it appears as though the old hand got the better of the rookie in this edition of the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night.”
