Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night – Hordichuk and Thornton Provide Us With A Classic – 11/18/10

Last night’s battle between the Dallas Stars and the San Jose Sharks provided us with a grand total of three fights, but none of them were quite as good as the single bout that took place in a game between the Boston Bruins and the Florida Panthers.

Any fight that lasts close to a minute is already impressive, but when that minute is filled with non-stop haymakers that leave the faces of both combatants bloodied, we can’t help but tip our hats and salute the men who provided us with such excitement.  In this case, the providers happen to be the Panthers’ Darcy Hordichuk and the Bruins’ Shawn Thornton.  You may see this fight on a short-list for “fight of the year” come April, but for now it is our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Thursday, November 19, 2010.
