Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Thornton vs. Boulton — 3/1/12
Two of the NHL’s toughest and best enforcers squared off at center ice inside the TD Gardens last night, as Shawn Thornton and Eric Boulton came to blows during a game between the Boston Bruins and the New Jersey Devils. This type of altercation is certainly nothing new to these two combatants, who have combined for a total of 25 fights this season, and well over 1800 penalty minutes over the course of their careers.
They added another ten minutes to their combined penalty minute total last night, and it was well worth it, as they each earn a spot on the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Thursday, March 1, 2012.
