In response to Crowls2424's comment:
The sequence had Callahan/Campbell jousting after the whistle. Callahan is chippy player who wasn't going to answer the bell.
Next faceoff, has Halpern jockying for position with Thornton, Rupp taking the draw. Rupp gets waved out and away he and Thornton go.
It was a physical game and both sides were looking to get an edge, seems like hockey to me. Thornton closed that emotional edge "door", Bickel opened it back up (opened Campbell up too). Not sure the 13:35 mark is "near the end" of the period either.
Last night's CLB/NSH game has Shea Weber taking on Jared Boll in a similar game situation as Thornton; 2-1 lead with around 10 minutes left. Weber also picks up a extra two minutes and the Preds are without there best player for 7 minutes. CLB scores just after the end of their PP and go on to win 3-2 in a Shoot-out.
It's a game of emotion and it's not always a skating clown or a 4th-line center that gets involved in the rough-stuff with a 1 goal lead in the 2nd period.
That's a great story, Crowls. Post it on your blog.
It doesn't answer the question.
13:35 is closer to the end than the beginning.
Great news! NAS made up the term "skating clown" so now we have to put up with another season of stupid posts just so he can write it over and over again. Thornton played his role perfectly in that situation with Rupp. Save your whining for a real team issue. Don't just do it every time ST gets in a fight or has too many shifts late in a game. Crowls provided a more than solid answer to your question and as per your M.O., you've changed the question to something else. You don't like ST. We get that. I'm not a big fan of his either but I don't need to update everyone on my hatred after every game. You don't need to either. We all know it's there.
This is all you have to know about Thornton. I watched a few of the hockey re-cap shows and ALL of the talking heads love Thornton and said he brings to the B's what every team needs. NAS doesn't agree, i get that, but i too don't need to hear after every game. I understand already, NAS doesn't like Thornton. I knew that 2 seasons ago.
