Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Moen vs. Thorburn — 3/29/11
Chris Thorburn of the Atlanta Thrashers has been relatively quiet in the fighting department all season, having failed to earn a spot on our “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night,” before finally receiving the honor for the first time on Sunday. After popping his cherry, it appears as though the 27-year-old native of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario is looking to finish the season strong, as he has now earned “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” honors in each of his last two games.
His latest comes via a bout near the end of the first period during last night’s game against the Montreal Canadiens. After getting tangled up with Travis Moen by the team benches, the two had a few words before settling things the only way hockey players know how to.
Here it is, your “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night” for Tuesday, March 29, 2011.
