Will We See Our First WC Fight?

from Ryan Lambert of PuckDaddy,

Shawn Thornton knew the question was coming.

“Oh God,” he sighed, obviously exasperated, “here we go.”

No, there has never been a fight in a Winter Classic, or the Heritage Classic for that matter. No, there’s never even been anything approaching a dustup. The closest anyone has gotten is a pair of matching roughing penalties in the Heritage Classic between Francis Boullion and Jason Chimera. It was real exciting stuff.

So hockey fans are waiting for that historic first fight. And the media talks about it. Dan Carcillo said his team wasn’t ignorant to the talk. But that doesn’t mean players are making plans to fight like it’s seventh grade meeting by the flagpole at recess.

“I don’t know,” said Thornton. “I honestly have never gone into a hockey game thinking about fighting. This is no different. I mean, you guys can ask because it’s kind of one of my roles, but other than you guys bringing it up, I don’t think about it.”
