Torts Fires Back at Sharks Captain Thornton (Video)
Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Konopka vs. Thornton — 11/1/11
Now that Zenon Konopka is playing in the Northeast division as a member of the Ottawa Senators, he will be seeing a lot more of Boston’s Shawn Thornton. That should result in plenty of bouts between these two combatants, as their two teams are scheduled to meet six times this season.
Last night was the first game of the season between the Sens and the Bruins, and Thornton and Konopka wasted little time getting acquainted, dropping the gloves less than six minutes into the game and earning themselves a spot on the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Tuesday, November 1, 2011.
